′′ A trend is emerging, where it becomes clear that even when you consider methodological weaknesses, EMF exposure, even in the low dose interval, can very well give changes in cellular oxidative balance."

‘In summary, indications for increased oxidative stress caused by RF-EMF and ELF-MF were reported in the majority of the animal studies and in more than half of the cell studies. Investigations in Wistar and Sprague-Dawley rats provided consistent evidence for oxidative stress occurring after RF-EMF exposure in the brain and testes and some indication of oxidative stress in the heart. Observations in Sprague-Dawley rats also seem to provide consistent evidence for oxidative stress in the liver and kidneys. In mice, oxidative stress induced by RF-EMF was predominantly demonstrated in the brain and testes, as well as in liver, kidneys, and ovaries. These observations were made with a variety of cell types, exposure times, and dosages (SAR or field strengths), within the range of the regulatory limits and recommendations.

LAKE CHARLES, La., April 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The family of a Sulphur, La. pastor who died last year from aggressive brain cancer alleges in a new federal-court lawsuit that the telecom industry has hidden the known health risks of cell phone radiation for decades, the Lundy, Lundy, Soileau & South, LLP law firm said today.

According to the lawsuit, the telecom industry suppressed credible cell phone safety concerns and has conspired to conceal or alter results of safety studies to make them more "market friendly." The lawsuit cites a long history of relevant scientific studies and industry actions taken since the 1980s, including the firing, defunding or denigration of researchers who discovered adverse effects associated with cell phone use.

Filed in federal court in Lakes Charles, La., the lawsuit was brought by the widow and two sons of Frank Aaron Walker, a 25-year user of cell phone products. A pastor and teacher, Mr. Walker died on Dec. 31, 2020 at the age of 49, after a two-year battle with glioblastoma that included extensive radiation, chemotherapy and surgery.

[Press release] The French National Agency for Health Safety (ANSES) questioned on its ability to protect the health of citizens using cell phones

[Press release] The French National Agency for Health Safety (ANSES) questioned on its ability to protect the health of citizens using cell phones
Equipe Phonegate 31 Mar 2021

Press release dated March 30, 2021

The mission of ANSES is to implement: “an independent and pluralistic scientific expertise” and to contribute to “[propose] to the competent authorities any measure likely to preserve public health”.

Accordingly, four associations, Phonegate Alert, CRIIREM, Robin des toits and SERA, members of the dialogue committee “Radiofrequencies and health”, wrote on March 25, 2021 to the Director General of ANSES, Mr. Roger Genet, to ask him to clarify the positions of the agency with regard to ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection), in particular concerning the validity of its work from a scientific point of view, and the conflicts of interest that govern it. This is particularly true at a time when the agency is inviting Mr. Rodney Croft, President of ICNIRP, to speak at the next meeting of the committee on April 1.

They also ask the agency in charge of health issues to transmit in full transparency the scientific information in its possession concerning the SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) measurements and especially the factors that determine these measurements (1g, 10g, duration of exposure, size of the dummy, polarity, etc.).

United States: In ‘Disheartening’ Ruling, Court Paves Way for Deployment of 5G Wireless Antennas on Private Property

In ‘Disheartening’ Ruling, Court Paves Way for Deployment of 5G Wireless Antennas on Private Property
By CHD 5G and Wireless Harms Project Team

CHD Chairman RFK, Jr., said the recent court ruling allowing the installation of wireless antenna on private property sentences vulnerable adults and children to eviction, diminished property values and debilitating illness without legal recourse.

An emergency injunction filed earlier this month by Children’s Health Defense (CHD) to stop a rule allowing private property owners to place fixed point-to-point antennas on their property and extend 5G wireless services to users on neighboring properties was denied last week by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

CHD’s emergency motion for an emergency injunction to stay the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) amendment to the “Over-the-Air Reception Devices” rule (OTARD) would have stopped the rule from going into effect March 29.

NY State Lawmakers Float Creation Of 5G Safety Commission
Khorri Atkinson, Law360, Mar 29, 2021

Law360 (March 29, 2021, 10:24 PM EDT) -- Two New York state lawmakers have introduced legislation to establish a commission charged with examining the health and environmental impacts of wireless radiation emitted by 5G technology and other wireless antennas.

The temporary commission, proposed by Sen. Anna Kaplan, D-Great Neck, and Assemblyman Tom Abinanti, D-Greenburgh, would consist of 15 members including health experts, environmental scientists and independent electromagnetic radiation researchers.

Under the legislation, the panel would present an initial report on its findings to the state legislature by June 2022 and a final report the following December.

This could be a column about the hidden environmental problems that plague electric cars – such as those batteries (disposing of them) as well as the human rights abuses involved in the overseas mining of rare earth metals.

However, my focus is health – and this is what most concerns me regarding vehicles, and electric vehicles (EVs) in particular.

All vehicles have a metal body. In fact, steel makes up the vast majority of your vehicle (frame, roof, floor, exhaust pipes and more). Metal is not only a conductor of electricity, it also acts like a Faraday cage, keeping EMFs inside your car, preventing their exit.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - There's a high probability that radio-frequency radiation from cellphones causes certain rare but often malignant brain tumors in humans, according to a former director of the National Center for Environmental Health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Dr. Christopher Portier submitted his findings as part of a lawsuit by patients and families against multiple cellphone manufacturers and carriers.

Ellie Marks' husband, Alan, just had a second surgery to remove tumors caused, according to experts they consulted, by cell-phone use. She joined the lawsuit and founded the nonprofit California Brain Tumor Association to get the word out.

Phonegate: The Mission of Dr. Marc Arazi

 PHONEGATE – DIE MISSION DES DR. MARC ARAZI / THE MISSION OF DR MARC ARAZI

Als der französische Arzt Marc Arazi 2016 erstmals die offiziellen Zahlen der für den französischen Mobilfunk und Verbraucherschutz zuständigen, staatlichen Agentur ANFR (Agence Nationale des Frequences) zu den Grenzwerten der Smartphones und Handys einsah, traute er seinen Augen nicht. Hier stand es schwarz auf weiß: von über vierhundert getesteten Modellen waren die Grenzwerte bei knapp 90% überschritten! Also bei 9 von 10 Modellen! Und was den Mediziner dabei besonders irritierte – keinen schienen die Testberichte sonderlich zu interessieren.

When in 2016 the French physician Marc Arazi had his first look at the official numbers of the regulatory compliance reports regarding smartphones / cell phones and exposure limits, which are overseen by the French government agency ANFR (Agence Nationale des Fréquences) tasked with consumer protection and wireless communication technologies, he couldn’t believe his eyes. There it was in black and white: of more than four hundred tested models, the exposure limits were exceeded in nearly 90% of the cases! These are 9 out of 10 models! And what irritated the physician the most was the fact that nobody seemed to care much about these test reports.
