Consistently apply the precautionary principle in mobile communications – Doctors for Environmental Protection (AefU)


For economic reasons, mobile phone providers are demanding higher system limit values ​​for their mobile phone systems. Swiss expert reports do not give the all-clear with regard to the health effects of mobile phone radiation and call for consistent preventive measures. The Doctors for Environmental Protection (AefU) demand that medical expertise is increasingly included in the digital agenda.


Chinese Tech Executives Admit 5G "Smart" Cities Have Big Costs, Small Benefits

Chinese Tech Executives Admit 5G "Smart" Cities Have Big Costs, Small Benefits
POSTED BY ANNE TEMPLE 1004GS, momsacrossamerica.com, 11 November 2020

In a stunning report from Chinese news outlet The New Lens, Chinese 5G Not Living Up to the Hype author John Xie exposes the disappointing reality of 5G "Smart" City networks. In short, the technology is not living up to expectations; the costs are enormous, and the benefits are few. The problems with high density 5G networks include, in summary:

  • Electricity costs were 10X higher than the profits in China in 2019
  • Uses 3X as much energy as 4G
  • Small coverage area = high density cell towers = close proximity to residents and office workers
  • 73% of customers say 5G is not needed
  • Widespread complaints about speed
  • More interference

Pennsylvania: Court Ruling Throws Smart-Meter Plan into Turmoil

Court ruling throws Pennsylvania smart-meter plan into turmoil
by ANDREW MAYKUTH, The Philadelphia Inquirer, 11 November 2020

The statewide deployment of millions of wireless smart meters has been thrown into turmoil after a court invalidated Pennsylvania’s policy that requires electric utilities to install the devices on all homes and businesses.

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission and Peco Energy this week asked the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to review a lower-court decision that invalidates a policy requiring the universal installment of smart meters. Several Peco customers objected to the installation of wireless devices on their homes, saying the radio frequency (RF) emissions made them ill.

State Commonwealth Court last month determined that the 12-year-old law requiring utilities to “furnish” smart-meter technology by 2023 contained nothing to require “every customer to endure involuntary exposure” to radio emissions. The court’s opinion, written by Judge Ellen Ceisler, instead interpreted the law to support customer choice in the use of the smart-meter technology.

VIDEO. 5G: are electromagnetic waves the cause of cancer among Atos employees?

by Bhavi Mandalia , Pledge Times, 11 November 2020

Based in Clayes-sous-Bois, in Yvelines, Atos is a French multinational company specializing in IT services, a digital giant. Surrounded by three relay antennas, its central building contains computer rooms, servers, power supplies … or many sources of electromagnetic radiation.

Multiple sources of electromagnetic radiation

Gérard Duchastenier has spent more than thirty years in the company. When the reporters of “Complément d’Investigation” collected his testimony, this former computer engineer had been battling cancer for more than a year. This was declared in 2019, four years after his retirement. On MRI, he was found to have a glioma (or glioblastoma), a very aggressive tumor, in the right temporal region.

Proposing Cradle-to-Grave Evaluations for All Vehicles

Proposing cradle-to-grave evaluations for all vehicles

Letter to Greta Thunberg: why maintaining a gas-guzzler may cause less harm than buying a new e-vehicle

Dear Greta,

You know how manufacturers promote electric vehicles (EVs) because they have “zero-emissions?” I wonder if this is really true.

Because EVs do not emit GHGs at the tailpipe,
they're called emissions-free
Evaluations of any vehicle’s ecological impacts usually don’t reach from cradle to grave. They focus on the car’s energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while it operates1. Most evaluations do not include embodied energy or emissions—what’s used and emitted during manufacturing. They do not count GHGs or toxins emitted while extracting and smelting ores, producing the vehicle’s electronics, lubricants, brake fluid, solvents, body and tires. Evaluations do not count what is emitted while designing, forming, cutting and bending metals and plastics…and transporting materials between stations. They don’t count miners’ or assembly workers hazards. They don’t count the ecological and public health impacts of vehicle maintenance, repair, disposal or recycling.

If we determine a car’s environmental impacts by looking exclusively at its operational driving time, are we fooling ourselves?

How electric vehicles are different

What did Apple know about falling iPhone demand in China? Judge says shareholders can sue to find out

What did Apple know about falling iPhone demand in China? Judge says shareholders can sue to find out

By Ryan Fernandez – Associate editor, Silicon Valley Business Journal
Nov 6, 2020

Apple shareholders have accused it and CEO Tim Cook of defrauding them over iPhone sales in China, and an Oakland judge now agrees that company must face a proposed class-action lawsuit.

Tim Cook, chief executive of Apple, in
San Jose, Calif., June 3, 2019.
Jim Wilson/The New York Times
Specifically, the shareholders — led by the U.K.-based Norfolk County Council as Administering Authority of the Norfolk Pension Fund — want to know what Cook and company knew about falling demand for iPhones back in 2018. They’re saying that Apple was concealing that knowledge from them, which resulted in investor losses amounting to billions of dollars.

In the case called “In re Apple Inc Securities Litigation, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, No. 19-02033,” U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers decided on Wednesday that the shareholders had grounds to sue. In a 23-page decision, Rogers wrote that it was plausible that Cook’s statements in a 2018 analyst call were false and misleading.

Why Stop 5G: Sharing an Awareness

On 18 September 2020, Bloomberg reported, "A group of employees of Orange SA called repeatedly for management to scrap the rollout of 5G services in memos circulated to colleagues on the Plazza social media platform. The memos, issued in October 2019 and in May of this year, said the technology will be unprofitable and will damage the environment, according to three people familiar with their content.

The text of Orange employees denouncing the excesses of this new technology: "Why stop 5G: sharing an awareness", has appeared on the site "Demain en mains". "Towards Better Health" has translated it into English. We are trying to verify the authenticity of this document, but it seems likely that it is genuine.

The document ends with these words:

"This employee initiative was born spontaneously from a person-to-person dialogue. It is not the emanation of a militant approach in the traditional sense. We, engineers, researchers, technicians, experts, believe deeply in Orange's values and it is in this capacity that we believe our Group is intellectually capable of piloting strategic orientations that are truly controversial, especially when they raise the question of the future of humanity and of all living things. 

"Let's dare, now, to stop the deployment of 5G."

Why Die for WiFi? My Child Did - Will Yours?

Why die for WiFi?  My Child Did - Will Yours?
by Debra Fry, posted 3 May 2016

On the 11th of June 2015, my 15 year old daughter, Jenny Fry was found by me, hanged in woods near our home in Oxfordshire, UK .

She was utterly exhausted; instead of receiving sympathy and understanding, she was battling the school for giving her detentions and refusing to acknowledge her difficulty around wifi, which had a profound effect on her ability to concentrate, write, explain things, and function in school.

I went into the school on several occassions to try to educate them on the health dangers to all pupils and staff, as well as the effect it was having on Jenny, but I was told that for as many reports that there are showing harm, there are as many available online saying that wifi is safe (although I have not seen any saying this).

The head teacher did say he would double check; I left him a list of information - reports and websites - to check. He also said he could not turn off the wifi for one child; I said it was not just for Jenny, but it would be healthier for everyone.

In this book, the neuroscientist Michel Desmurget (Lyon, 1965), director of research at the French National Institute of Health, has concrete and conclusive data on how digital devices seriously affect, and worse, the neuronal development of children and young people.

"There is simply no excuse for what we are doing to our children and for the way we are endangering their future and their development", warns the expert, who has visited renowned research centers such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the University of California. His book has become a huge bestseller in France.

TRANSPARENCY NEEDED: UNANSWERD QUESTIONS ASKED OF THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION

(Choice of image by "Towards
Better Health")
Environmental Health Trust and numerous expert scientists have written the WHO EMF Project D. Van Deventer to ask critical questions related to the WHO EMF Project Factsheets and Research Review. Questions were asked in 2019 and again in 2020 but EHT has yet to recive any responses.

Remember, the WHO EMF Project is a different entity than the WHO International Agency for the Research on Cancer (IARC).

The IARC vets experts for conflicts of interest and industry ties and has classified RF as a Class 2 B possible carcinogen, whereas the EMF Project (also under the WHO umbrella) is criticized for a lack of transparency and industry loyalty. See (Hardell 2017) published in the International Journal for Oncology with details on the industry ties of the WHO EMF Project.

Press Release: 5G Petition to Halt Leasing of New Frequencies for 5G

Citizens from almost every part of Greece have submitted a petition to the Council of State of this country on October 23rd 2020, with the request to withhold the proceedings for the leasing of the frequencies used under the 5G wireless communication protocol. This auctioning procedure is scheduled for October 30,2020.

The causes and rational for our petition to the Council of State is related to the protection of the human health as well as to the various environmental issues being threatened from the installation and operation of the 5th generation wireless communication system in the Greek territory.

Opinion on Microwave Sickness: "When We Respect Those Sensitive to Radiation, All Will Benefit"

When we respect those sensitive to radiation, all will benefit
Opinion, Bonner County Daily Bee (Idano), November 1, 2020

Why should government offices and public establishments have a wired ethernet connection and insist that patrons turn off their cellphones?

Thousands of studies show harmful biological effects of radio frequency-microwave radiation. Those with ES suffer greatly when exposed and are essentially being banished unknowingly by our modern society. International organizations, medical associations, doctors and hospitals in several countries and countless courts have recognized ES.

• 2009: The European Parliament recognized the condition and its correlation to EMR (electro-magnetic radiation).

• 2011: The Council of Europe recognized ES, following an extensive and unbiased investigation. The Council concluded that “…A syndrome of intolerance to electromagnetic fields does exist and those people are not feigning illness or suffering from psychiatric disorders.”

• 2016: A court decision in France ordered disability payments to a woman suffering ES, and a decision in Spain awarded an engineer ES disability payments

New Review Study Finds Heavier Cell Phone Use Increases Tumor Risk

NEW REVIEW STUDY FINDS HEAVIER CELL PHONE USE INCREASES TUMOR RISK
Environmental Health Trust, Nov 2, 2020

New review study finds that heavier cell phone use increases tumor risk
Press Release from Dr. Joel Moskowitz. More at Electromagnetic Radiation Safety
November 2, 2020

[Abstract and link to open-access study.]

A review of research on cell phone use and tumor risk finds that cell phone use with cumulative call time more than 1000 hours significantly increased the risk of tumors.

(Berkeley, CA, November 2, 2020) Today, the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health published a systematic review and meta-analysis of the case-control research on cell phone use and tumor risk.

This study updates our original meta-analysis (i.e., quantitative research review) published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology in 2009. The new review examined twice as many studies as our original paper.

“In sum, the updated comprehensive meta-analysis of case-control studies found significant evidence linking cellular phone use to increased tumor risk, especially among cell phone users with cumulative cell phone use of 1000 or more hours in their lifetime (which corresponds to about 17 min per day over 10 years), and especially among studies that employed high quality methods.”
