[You may still view “Wi-Fried”.]
This is an excellent 30-minute report by Dr Maryanne Demasi ** presented on the program, "Catalyst", ABC television, Australia.
In October 2016, it was announced that the ABC’s Catalyst program was to lose its weekly slot and its 11 staff – including the suspended presenter Maryanne Demasi – made redundant under a radical plan which has been approved by the ABC board. Senior ABC program makers warned that ditching the weekly half-hour program and disbanding the science unit would lead to a dumbing down of science programming and effectively kill off Australian science on television.
Could wifi-enabled devices be harmful to our health? You cannot see it or hear it but Wi-Fi blankets our homes, our schools and our cities. Australia's safety agency says there's no evidence of harm, but that's not the same as saying its safe. A growing number of scientists are concerned that the widespread use of Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi-enabled devices could be slowly making us sick. In this Catalyst investigation, Dr Maryanne Demasi explores whether our wireless devices could be putting our health at risk.

Havana syndrome: sonic attack or all in the mind?
by Nicky Woolf, The Sunday Times, 22 Jan. 2023
In February 2017, Michael Hoffer, a surgeon and professor at Miami University, received a phone call. “This is the State Department,” the caller said. “We have a problem.” Hoffer, who specialises in neurosurgery and otolaryngology (the ear, nose and throat), had worked with the US military previously, studying traumatic brain injuries among soldiers deployed in Iraq. But the problem outlined to him on this call was different. Something was happening in Havana — something the government didn’t understand.
Study by Swiss Federal Office for the Environment Considers Connection between Mobile Communications and Insect Mortality to be Probable
On behalf of the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN), the research overview "Effect of non-ionizing radiation (hereinafter: NIS) on arthropods " was developed at the University of Neuchatel:
Mulot M, Kroeber T, Gossner M, Fröhlich J (2022). Effect of non-ionizing radiation (NIS) on arthropods, report commissioned by the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN), Neuchâtel, July 2022
Mobile communications communicate via non-ionizing radiation (hereinafter: NIS). Although this study overview of the effects of mobile phone radiation on insects has not been published in a peer-reviewed journal , it has a high level of validity due to its scientific nature.

- Certain iPhone models allegedly emit radiation above limits
- Circuit split widened; other preemption issues need guidance
The US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit said their claims were preempted by federal law, widening a circuit split over the preemptive effect of certain Federal Communications Commission guidelines, consumers said in a recently docketed petition for review. Its decision also presents a “golden opportunity” for much-needed guidance on when agency action preempts state-law claims, they said.
Andrew Cohen and others alleged that a lab hired by the Chicago Tribune found that the iPhone 7, 8, and X showed exposure above the federal limit when the phones were carried close to the body.

Limit excessive exposure of children to screens: this is the aim of a bill , tabled by the Renaissance parliamentary group (formerly En Marche). The text, which was co-signed by all the deputies of the group, must be examined by the Assembly “ in the spring ”, according to the cabinet of the deputy Caroline Janvier, who presented the bill.
In a press release sent on January 25, 2023, the MP for Loiret explains that she wants to fight against what she calls the " new evil of the century ", without having a " technophobic approach ". The 6 articles of the proposed law generally provide for better awareness of the risks incurred by children. But one article in particular catches the eye: it proposes to regulate the use of teachers' telephones, and to have the measures financed by... an increase in the price of tobacco.

When I was a kid in the mid-’80s, it was Tipper Gore and the Parents’ Music Resource Center coming after rock and rap for what they considered explicit and obscene lyrics, leading to the first “Parental Advisory” label going on a 2 Live Crew album.
Decades later, the focus now is on social media and its effects on the mental health of young people.
Given the frequent overreach and cyclical nature of these moral panics, it would be easy to roll your eyes at today’s concerns over social media.

The mobile industry is the greatest polluter on the planet today
What about microwaves and CO2 emissions? Trower knows of three published papers which say that the biggest polluter on the planet is the mobile industry. The hundreds of thousands of transmitters all over the world require power. “All the mobile phones need power, all the Wi-Fi sets, all the gadgets and all this power has to be generated. The more the industry puts out Wi-Fi, not only are they contributing to warming the atmosphere but they are also increasing the carbon footprint. The mobile industry is the greatest polluter on the planet today… Yet, you hear nothing anywhere in the world against the mobile industry in terms of pollution.
United Kindgom: Feb 6 &7 Action Against 5G Court Case: Two brave women decided to challenge the UK government with regards to the risks of 5G

The entire population has access to 5G, yet thousands of additional antennas are pending. Here's why.
by Julien Wicky, Tribune de Genève, 21 January 2023 - translation
It is a figure that is paradoxical. On the website of the Federal Office of Communications (OFCOM), we can read that since the end of 2021, 100% of the Swiss population has been covered by the fifth generation mobile network, the famous 5G. On their sites, the three operators in the country do not say the opposite and claim the importance of their coverage. Yet in 2022, an additional 1,500 antennas were installed, bringing the total to 8,474 5G installations as of January 3 this year, according to data we requested from OFCOM. And it's not over. But if everyone is already covered, why continue to install new infrastructures, especially since these are very often opposed by groups of opponents?

Much of Seattle’s legal case is based on the work of San Diego State University psychology professor Jean Twenge, author of "iGen." Twenge claims the evidence now suggests it's not just correlation, but causation, that connects the overuse of social media platforms to high rates of teen anxiety.

“A representative of the Ericsson company — the world leading 5G infrastructure provider — and the umbrella organization for 1,200 tech companies, all the major telecom companies in Sweden, wrote to the editor of the Swedish magazine and asked him to withdraw the article,” she explained.
“This is the first case report of the microwave syndrome caused by 5G,” Hardell told The Defender (CHD), adding that “historically, many risk factors for human health have first been identified by clinical observations.”
According to Nilsson, the study — which examined the change in physical symptoms experienced by a 63-year-old man and a 62-year-old woman when a 5G cellular tower was installed on the top of their apartment building — “confirms the concerns raised for several years by hundreds of scientists and physicians about the dangers of the 5G rollout.”

Investigations by the organization Phonegate Alert from France with the federal authorities have revealed: In this country there is no supervisory body that checks whether the manufacturers comply with the legal standards for mobile phone radiation. Rather, the manufacturers of mobile phones are themselves responsible for ensuring the security of their devices in Switzerland.

To many people, the notion that cellphones or cell towers might present a health risk long ago receded into a realm somewhere between trivial concern and conspiracy theory. For decades, the wireless industry has dismissed such ideas as fearmongering, and federal regulators have maintained that cellphones pose no danger. But a growing body of scientific research is raising questions, with the stakes heightened by the ongoing deployment of hundreds of thousands of new transmitters in neighborhoods across America. ProPublica recently examined the issue in detail, finding that the chief government regulator, the Federal Communications Commission, relies on an exposure standard from 1996, when the Motorola StarTAC flip phone was cutting edge, and that the agency brushed aside a lengthy study by a different arm of the federal government that found that cellphone radiation caused rare cancers and DNA damage in lab animals. The newest generation of cellphone technology, known as 5G, remains largely untested.
