diagnose-funk.org, 21 April 2021 - translation

Stuttgart April 21, 2021. A delegation from the 'Doctors' Working Group on Digital Media' held a large banner and signs in front of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Social Affairs and handed over an open letter on the subject of mobile communications and health to Minister Manne Lucha (Greens).



The open letter from the medical delegation was handed over as a large scroll. * This is where the “Doctors Working Group on Digital Media” justifies its demands to Minister Manne Lucha. In the letter, the doctors draw the minister's attention to the psycho-social and health consequences of the ever increasing use of digital media, even among small children, and criticize the state government's inaction.

On the signs, the doctors demand:
  • Smartphones not in the hands of children
  • Wi-Fi-free hospital rooms
  • Advice center for electro-hypersensitive people

Link to Video of Webinar and transcript:

Last night, 28 April, Children's Health Defense held a Webinar on this lawsuit, featuring Attorney Dafna Tachover and Attorney Hunter Lundy, one of the leading personal injury lawyers in the U.S. who has been at the forefront of this litigation.  We thank them for this very informative event.  The article below covers points raised in the Webinar. 

We urge those people who are interested in the case to read the lawsuit “April Marie Walker, et al., v. Motorola Mobility, LLC, et al.”,  filed on 8 April 2021 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana:

"The defendants in the case include Motorola Mobility, LLC; Motorola Solutions, Inc., Motorola, Inc.; AT&T Mobility LLC; ZTE Corp.; Cricket Communications LLC; HMD Global Oy; the Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association; and the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA).

"The lawsuit alleges that the telecom industry “downplayed, understated and/or did not state the health hazards and risks associated with cell phones.” It also accuses the defendants of fraud, unfair trade practices, design defects, inadequate warning and misrepresentation, among other state and federal causes of action."

Family Sues Telecom Giants, Alleging They Hid Risks of Cell Phone Radiation That Caused Man’s Brain Cancer
By Dafna Tachover, Esq, Children's Health Defense, 16 April 2021

Children’s Health Defense Chairman Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is part of the legal team representing the family of Frank Aaron Walker, who died at age 49 from an aggressive brain cancer linked to cell phone radiation.

The family of a pastor from Louisiana who died from glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer, is suing Motorola, AT&T and other telecommunications companies. The lawsuit, filed April 8, alleges the cancer was caused by exposure to cell phones’ radiation and that the telecommunications industry has engaged for decades in fraudulent practices to hide the health risks of cell phone radiation.

The lawsuit was brought by the widow and two sons of Frank Aaron Walker, a pastor, teacher and musician from Louisiana. Mr. Walker, who used cell phones for 25 years, was diagnosed with glioblastoma brain cancer in January 2019. Walker died Dec. 31, 2020, at the age of 49, after a two-year battle with this cancer.

5G report: participate in the public consultation organized by ANSES

Equipe Phonegate 1 May 2021

The French health and environmental agency, ANSES, published on Tuesday, April 20 an opinion and a draft report on aspects of possible health risks of exposure to 5G. This report has been put for a period of six weeks in public consultation to allow scientists, health professionals, experts and organizations to give their opinion, comments and proposals on the report.

You have until Tuesday, June 1, 2021 to participate.

To allow international participation on this global public health issue, we have asked ANSES to translate the opinion into English. According to their answer, it should be available soon. And on our side, we have just set up an English working report with the professional translation tool Deepl. It can be downloaded here.

Colorectal Cancer and The Great Sperm Decline, Could It Be Related To Cell Phone Radiation?

Colorectal Cancer and The Great Sperm Decline, Could It Be Related To Cell Phone Radiation?
by Dr. Devra Davis, medium-com, 30 March 2021

The good news: Colo-rectal cancer is dramatically dropping in persons over age 60 in many industrial countries. The puzzling bad news: Rates of rectal cancer have quadrupled in young adults under age 24 in the past decade in the U.S. and Iran and risen rapidly in the U.K, Egypt and Brazil. Increased screening is believed to explain much of the welcome decline in the elderly. But why has this very rare cancer become four times less rare and much more lethal in young adults?

A recent study documents these baffling increases in generational risk of cancer and provides one important clue about what could underlie them. The 4-fold increase in rectal cancer over the last decade in American young adults​ could very well be from cell phone radiation.

The Number of Millennials with Early-Onset Alzheimer's Disease is Surging

With the focus today on the Covid-19 pandemic, we must not neglect research into the causes and treatment of other diseases, such as Alzheimer's.  The explosion of early-onset Alzheimer's, in people as young as 30, described in this 2020 article, is very worrying. 

The number of millennials with early-onset Alzheimer's disease is surging, report finds

Independence Blue Cross report examines increased dementia diagnoses
by Tracey Romero, phillyvoice.com, 28 Feb. 2020

Dementia and Alzheimer's disease traditionally have been considered a concern for older generations. But recent spikes in early onset of these conditions in Americans as young as 30 suggest a different story.

(Photo): The number of Americans being diagnosed with early-onset dementia and Alzheimer's disease at younger ages is surging, according to a new report from the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.

Between 2013 and 2017, early-onset dementia and Alzheimer's diagnoses increased by 83% among commercially insured Americans aged 30 to 44, according to a report released by the health care insurer. That age group includes the oldest millennials.

France : Report on 5G and health: ANSES between confusion and inconsistency!

[Press release] Report on 5G and health: ANSES between confusion and inconsistency!
Equipe Phonegate 21 Apr 2021

The report turns its back on the concerns about the deployment of 5G, expressed by many scientists, health professionals, our organizations and citizens both in France and in Europe.

According to ANSES, “the resulting exposure to electromagnetic fields (from the deployment of 5G) is not representative today of what it will be in the future. The agency remains confused about the different modes of exposure, mobile phones, antennas, connected objects. It does not address the cumulative effect due to exposure to all frequencies, proposing only a differentiated analysis by bands.

Directly following the guidelines of ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection), whose conflicts of interest are well known, the agency only considers thermal effects as health effects, voluntarily ignoring biological effects.

Cell Phone Radiation and Parotid Gland Cancer: Personal Testimony

We thank this courageous person for sharing her story. The article includes mention of published research on this type of cancer and exposure to cell phones.

MY CANCER STORY: CELL PHONE RADIATION AND PAROTID GLAND CANCER
Environmental Health Trust, 13 April 2021

Research on long term exposure to cell phones has found increased risk for tumors of the parotid gland. EHT is sharing sent in by a woman wanting to raise awareness on the issue. May her story save lives.

My cancer story.

I found a lump on the left side of my face in front of my left ear in late 2019.

In early 2020 after having a CT, MRI, and Biopsy, I was diagnosed with Mucoepidermoid. Mucoepidermoid is a carcinoma, which is a malignant tumor of the parotid gland.

On July 20, 2020, I underwent a left superficial parotidectomy with facial nerve preservation and left selective level II lymph node dissection at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville le, FL.

I have used a cell phone for close to 20 years. I started using iPhone about 8-10 years ago, with my most recent phone being an iPhone 7 that I have used for the past two years.

Daily my average phone time is 1-2 hours of holding the phone to my left ear. I would talk with my elderly mother daily for 30 mins to 1 hour, sometimes a few times a day. I would not use the speaker because she could not hear me. So I would hold the phone to my left ear. I would also talk to my older sister several times a day. Sometimes 30-45 mins a day and would hold the phone to my left ear as well.

′′ 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. 

United States: In New Attack on Telecom Secrecy, Family of Pastor Alleges Cell Phone Radiation Link to His Deadly Brain Cancer

Lundy, Lundy, Soileau & South, LLP: In New Attack on Telecom Secrecy, Family of Pastor Alleges Cell Phone Radiation Link to His Deadly Brain Cancer
NEWS PROVIDED BY Lundy, Lundy, Soileau & South, LLP, Apr 08, 2021

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.
