Is It Safe to Carry Phones in Your Pocket? Apple and Samsung Slapped with RF Radiation Lawsuit

Is it safe to carry phones in your pocket? Apple and Samsung slapped with RF radiation lawsuit
by Daniel Petrovphonearena.com, 27 August 2019

Dust up your hazmat suits, people, your iPhone and Galaxy emissions are just short of Chernobyl levels, way higher than the safe ones presented to the FCC, and there is even a lawsuit now filed against them for doing that!

If you have been following the news in the past few days, you might be left with such an impression because of the infamous Chicago Tribune investigation that tested RF emissions on a number of few popular phones and found the FCC and phone makers' testing methods obsolete:

Samsung Galaxy And Apple iPhone 'Radiation Scandal' Attracts Class Action Lawsuit
by Zak Doffman, Contributor, forbes.com, 24 August 2019

In the least surprising news of the week, lawyers have already filed a class action lawsuit against Apple and Samsung, following revelations this week that the radiation emitted by smartphones from both manufacturers exceed safety standards—at least according to tests commissioned by the Chicago Tribune.

The tests, reported the newspaper, "conducted according to federal guidelines at an accredited lab," found that "radio-frequency radiation exposure from the iPhone 7—one of the most popular smartphones ever sold—measured over the legal safety limit and more than double what Apple reported to federal regulators from its own testing."

Chicago-Based Law Firm Capitalizes on Reports Apple's iPhones Exceeded Radiofrequency Radiation Safety Levels

Beth Fegan, a managing partner of Fegan Scott, a Chicago-based law firm, said that "this could be the Chernobyl of the cell phone industry, cover-up and all." "

Law Firm Capitalizes on Reports Apple's iPhones Exceeded Radiofrequency Radiation Safety Levels in Some Tests

by Juli Clovermacrumors.com, 22 August 2019

A report yesterday from The Chicago Tribune suggested Apple's iPhones were emitting radiofrequency radiation beyond federal safety limits following independent lab testing, and now, a law firm is capitalizing on that report and has announced the launch of an investigation into the claims.

Fegan Scott, a Chicago-based law firm, has not yet levied a lawsuit against Apple, and it's not clear what "investigation" will be conducted. Beth Fegan, a managing partner, said that "this could be the Chernobyl of the cell phone industry, cover-up and all."

Phonegate: [Press Release] Revelation of the Chicago Tribune on the tests of the most popular cell phones in the United States

[Press Release] Revelation of the Chicago Tribune on the tests of the most popular cell phones in the United States.
Equipe Phonegate, phonegatealert.org, 22 August 2019

In an article published on August 21, 2019, entitled “We tested popular cellphones for radiofrequency radiation. Now the FCC is investigating”, journalist Sam Roe reveals the result of more than a year of investigative work.

This journalist from the Chicago Tribune was part of a team of journalists who won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting for their examination of dangerous toys and other products for children. Roe has also been a Pulitzer Prize finalist four times.

Roe contacted us more than a year ago when he discovered information about our alert on the Phonegate industrial and health scandal following the revelations we obtained from the test reports carried out by the National Frequencies Agency (ANFR).

The choice of independent tests

The Chicago Tribune chose to independently test 11 of the most popular mobile phone models, including Apple’s iPhone 7 and 8, Korean manufacturer Samsung’s Galaxy S8, S9, J3 and Motorola’s Motoe5 Play.

"Tablets, PCs and Mobile Phones Change Our Brains" : Interview with Professor Dominique Belpomme

"So tablets, PCs and mobile phones change our brains": 
The French oncologist's warning about electromagnetic waves: "They lower children's IQ and also harm adults".
by Margherita Enrico, ilgiornale.it, 17 August 2019 (auto-translation)

Paris There is an archive, the largest in the world, maintained by an eminent (and controversial) French doctor considered a luminary but also viewed with some suspicion by the transalpine scientific community. In those files, facts and data on the damage caused by electromagnetic waves have been compiled.

He is Dominique Belpomme, 76, professor of oncology at the University Paris-Descartes, who took responsibility for a summary. Result: red code, serious danger, especially if we will be under the mantle of 5G. This is not a joke. Belpomme is famous for having published a very disturbing review on electrosensitivity three years ago and, thanks to him, France has recognized for the first time on a national basis a case of disability due to sensitivity to electromagnetic waves. The effects on the brain, which he considers not to be well understood by the public, can reduce the learning abilities of children and adolescents and even reduce their IQ. And if no action is taken, the consequences could be catastrophic.

80 per cent of children aged 3 to 6 can use tablets and mobile phones.

Switzerland: 5G Interview with Geneva Resident, Elidan Arzoni

This is a new interview in English with Geneva resident Elidan Arzoni whose testimony on 5G appeared recently in Illustré. This clarifies certain points about the current status of 5G technology in Switzerland.

Sideeffects of living near 5G towers in Geneva Switzerland – testimonial

People experiencing health effects after the 5G was turned on in Geneva

I spotted an article on the Swiss website https://www.illustre.ch/magazine/5g-sentons-cobayes where residents suddenly report about strange side effects they have after the 5G towers have been turned on in Geneva Switzerland. These residents of the same neighborhood in Geneva suffer from various health problems. Are they the victims of a 5G technology whose dangers have not been sufficiently tested anywhere in the world? We are being forcibly radiated by 5G microwaves.

29-year-old Johan Perruchoud who has been living in Geneva for the past 11 years says that all problems started in April 2019 when the 5G in Geneva was officially turned on. Suddenly he started having problems falling to sleep. He felt at home as being in a microwave. Three antennas 5G have just been put into service nearby where he lives and other people complained of identical disorders, headaches, fatigue.

Policy Recommendations Based on the Evidence to Date

At the time of writing, a total of 32 countries or governmental bodies within these countries4 have issued policies and health recommendations concerning exposure to RFR (78). Three U.S. states have issued advisories to limit exposure to RFR (8183) and the Worcester Massachusetts Public Schools (84) voted to post precautionary guidelines on Wi-Fi radiation on its website. In France, Wi-Fi has been removed from pre-schools and ordered to be shut off in elementary schools when not in use, and children aged 16 years or under are banned from bringing cell phones to school (85). Because the national test agency found 9 out of 10 phones exceeded permissible radiation limits, France is also recalling several million phones.

FCC Proposes No Change to Its RF Standards - Existing Rules Will Apply to 5G Phones and Infrastructure

FCC Proposes No Change to Its RF Standards - 
Existing Rules Will Apply to 5G Phones and Infrastructure
microwavenews.com, 8 August 2019, last updated 9 August 2019

After six years of study, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has decided not to revise its current safety limits for RF radiation. The rules, which were first adopted in 1996 and are the only ones governing cell phone exposures in the U.S., will continue to be based only on thermal effects.

“After a thorough review of the record and consultation with [the FDA and other health] agencies, we find it appropriate to maintain the existing radiofrequency limits, which are among the most stringent in the world for cell phones,” said Julius Knapp, the chief of the FCC’s Office of Engineering and Technology.

International Phonegate Scandal

The Phonegate Alert Association has just updated its Website with this information explaining the Phonegate scandal: See original article for videos and information leaflet.

phonegatealert.org, 8 August 2019

There are hundreds of millions of victims worldwide, more than 300 million electrohypersensitive persons, and how many deaths and sick people suffering from pathologies such as begnin and malignant brain tumors, fertility disorders, particularly severe cognitive disorders in children

  • The European and international standards that have been regulating the placing on the market of mobile phones for 30 years are seriously deficient to protect the health and safety of users.
  • The Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) that measures our level of thermal exposure to waves is a faulty and misleading indicator.
  • By using parameters that have nothing to do with real usage, manufacturers have knowingly misled consumers about the real SAR levels of their mobile phones.
  • One of the artifices used is the indicator, until the launch of the alert in July 2016 in France, of a distance measurement between 15 and 25 mm from the skin to measure body SARs.
  • During the control tests carried out in 2015 by the National Frequencies Agency (ANFR) on 95 mobile phone models taken from stores, 9 out of 10 exceeded the regulatory thresholdsof 2W/kg and 1 in 4, thethreshold of 4W/kg.
  • By using other artifices (which concerns more than 150 countries), such as the choice of testing on 10gr of tissues and an exposure time of 6mn, the SAR is once again reduced by at least three times.
  • Between the body SAR displayed by the manufacturer on the notice or in the store, and the real SAR, there may be deviations of more than 50 times.
  • Manufacturers are preparing to do the same for the new indicator, power density, which will be implemented (under development) on smartphones using the new 5G technology

When it comes to the introduction of the new 5G mobile communications standard, telecom providers cannot go fast enough. Sunrise and Swisscom in particular have announced ambitious expansion plans. On the company website, Swisscom promises to introduce 5G throughout Switzerland by the end of the year. Sunrise CEO Olaf Swantee also spoke of being able to offer 5G "in all regions" this year.

However, the resistance to 5G is much greater than previously known. According to the "Schutz vor Strahlung" association, 110 construction applications are pending throughout Switzerland. The number of unknown complaints is probably considerable.
