5G safe zone around airports to prevent crashes

The FAA on January 13 published 1,478 notices to air missions (notams) related to pending activation of 5G C-band wireless base stations with far-reaching implications for air travel, including emergency medical transportation. https://www.aopa.org/news-and-media/all-news/2022/january/13/faa-publishes-long-expected-5g-c-band-notams

The central issue remains potential interference with radar altimeters, which have for decades operated on frequencies near the C-band and are installed in thousands of aircraft, including commercial airliners, some business jets, and many helicopters flying patients to hospitals surrounded by 5G antennas.

In that last category, helicopters used for emergency medical transportation and flown under Part 135 have been required to have radar altimeters installed since 2017, pursuant to a final rule published by the FAA in 2014. That rule mandated a package of safety requirements and updates, including increased weather minimums that apply to Part 91 helicopter operations.

If 5G can affect airplane electronics what can it do to the brain of pilot’s. So if they find a shield for the radar altimeters will we then see a rash of landing errors by pilot’s whose brains may be affected by these rogue frequencies?

Petition to HHS and FDA about wireless radiation

Non Profit Groups Petition HHS and FDA to Declare Imminent Hazard from Wireless Radiation   Petitioners Claim Inaction by FDA is Causing Confusion and Harm to the Public 
(Washington, DC)

A group of non-profit organizations and private individuals led by the national coalition Americans for Responsible Technology (ART) today petitioned the Health and Human Services Department and its constituent agency, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to publicly issue a declaration of Imminent Hazard and clarify its position on the safety of human exposure to radiofrequency (RF) radiation emitted from cell phones, cell towers, smart meters, small cell antennas, wireless kiosks, tablets, computers and other wireless devices. The groups contend that the FDA is allowing and encouraging the misleading and false impression that it has engaged in a careful examination of the evidence, reached a science-based conclusion and developed standards for human exposure following government procedures. It has not.

“We’re asking a simple and basic question that Americans have a right to know the answer to: where are the FDA’s science-based standards for exposure to RF radiation?” says ART founder and National Director Doug Wood, whose organization represents more than 130 grassroots organizations across the country. “The FDA is our nation’s primary agency to protect and promote public health and it has a statutory responsibility to evaluate the safety of wireless devices. This is an imminent hazard to human health. The FDA must act.”

The rapid deployment of 5G antennas in neighborhoods across the country, along with the national effort to make every school classroom wireless has raised questions among parents and others as to the safety of near-constant exposure. The concurrent publication of more studies linking RF radiation to cancer, DNA damage and reproductive and neurological problems, has ignited a fierce debate over the wisdom of increasing involuntary exposure to RF radiation. Petitioners argue that the current FCC thermal guidelines, developed more than a quarter century ago, do not address proven biological impacts occurring at levels below the thermal threshold.

“The public is completely uninformed and unprotected,” says Cindy Franklin, founder of Consumers for Safe Cell Phones, a co-petitioner in the action. “Most people think the FDA is carefully evaluating the science, and that FCC regulations are based on properly developed scientific input from the FDA. None of that is true.”

recent lawsuit seeking a judicial review of the FCC’s decision to keep its outdated safety guidelines in place resulted in the Court ordering the FCC to look again at emerging science linking exposure to RF radiation with biological harm, especially to children and the environment. The court called the FCC’s decision to keep its thermal-only guidelines “arbitrary and capricious.”

“People all over the country are suffering from exposure, but may not realize it’s the RF radiation from a nearby antenna, smart meter or router,” says Ellen Marks, founder of the California Brain Tumor Association whose husband developed a brain tumor after years of holding his cell phone against his head. “RF radiation can cause headaches, dizziness, nausea, insomnia, inability to concentrate – and those are just the acute symptoms. Cancer takes longer to develop. We can’t wait. This is a public health crisis that needs to be addressed immediately!”

OTARD Hearing in MA results..

Hi All, 

We finally arrived at the finish line of the OTARD case and we are finishing with a smile. The hearing on December 7 went well and Scott McCollough did a fantastic job arguing the case. However, it is impossible to predict the outcome. We did the best we could, we are content with our efforts and we are hopeful. The title of a Law360 article published today about the hearing expresses my opinion of it. Full text: DC Circ. Appears Skeptical Of FCC Wireless Antenna Rules.

Court’s Decision – Now we just have to wait for the Court’s decision. The DC Circuit usually issues its decisions within 6 months of the hearing

Join Our OTARD Webinar – I know many people have questions about this case and its implications and have questions. Therefore, on Wednesday, December 15, at 3 pm ET, Scott McCollough and I will conduct a webinar with a Q & A session in which we’ll discuss the case and the hearing.
Register for the Webinar Here (pre-registration is required). We thank 5G Free California for hosting this event. 

Recording of the Hearing – For those who missed the hearing, the recording is available on YouTube. The hearing starts at 30:35 and ends at 1:12:00. It is only 37 minutes and I recommend listening to it. See below links to transcripts of selections from the oral arguments:

Transcript of FCC’s Oral Arguments

A Snapshot of the Hearing 

The judges asked good questions including several regarding the increase in RF exposure, property and homeowners’ association rights and due process. It seemed they were especially concerned with aesthetics. Judge Randolph asked whether local communities would be allowed to pass regulations to prevent these antennas because “they are ugly and we don’t want them in our town?” The FCC’s attorney admitted that it would likely be considered an “unreasonable restriction” and therefore would be prohibited
 

The judges’ questions led the FCC to reluctantly admit that we are correct in our assertions as to the impact of the rule amendment: no notice of installation of these antennas is required;  there is no ability to object to their installation; and that essentially, the FCC considers any barrier to installation unreasonable and therefore unlawful, so indeed all state and municipal laws are preempted except for compliance with electric, building and fire codes

The judges, especially Judge Millet, who presided over the panel, appeared to see through the FCC’s efforts to minimize the impact this rule has. The FCC continuously argued that the only thing the rule does is to remove the “private use” restriction. McCollough explained that this alleged small change completely flips the whole purpose of the rule, resulting in a massive impact

It felt as if the FCC’s attorney attempted to avoid answering the questions knowing the answers would not help the FCC’s case. It was quite noticeable, even to a child. In a comment on my Facebook page Amy wrote: “I had my 10-year-old son listening and he could understand what she [Judge Millet] was asking. He didn’t understand why the FCC attorney couldn’t answer. While usually attorneys want more time to speak, not less, after yet another intense exchange with Judge Millet, the FCC attorney told the court “I am out of time, your honor.” 

Concluding his arguments, McCollough used vivid comparisons suggested to him by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to demonstrate the difference between the old and the new rule allowing “really really ugly powerful antennas”: “The difference is like the difference between a porch light to stadium lights emitting out to a mile, or the difference between TV speakers to a large rock band playing at a stadium for people who can hear it up to a mile.“


It Takes A Village


As always, it takes a village. Many people were involved and worked hard and under a lot of pressure. First and foremost – a huge thank you to Scott McCollough, who as always has done a superb job at every step of the way. To Shannon Koenig who is an essential part of our team, and to Ed Friedman for his help with editing even though it was always late and last minute. I have the utmost appreciation for our Petitioners and our Affiants and their family members for being willing to share their personal experiences and hardships. It takes a lot of courage. Thank you Dr. Elliot, Ginger, Jonathan, Angela, Dr. Hoffman, Michele, and Jennifer. Special thanks to the medical experts who filed reports:  Prof. Beatrice Golomb, Prof. Riina Bray and Dr. Toril Jelter.  Most Importantly, thank you Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and the Children’s Health Defense team and their donors for enabling us to bring this case

Canada limits 5G around airports

Canada Limits 5G To Protect Air Travel (forbes.com)

ISED’s concerns about the potential interference with altimeters by 5G operations in the 3.45 – 3.65 GHz band in Canada emerge the same week that the FCC completed the auction of licenses in the 3.45 – 3.55 GHz band in the United States for more than $20 billion. The FCC order authorizing the auction has no mention of altimeters, much less potential interference.

The Canadian restrictions include “exclusion zones” around 26 airports where outdoor 5G base stations would not be permitted to operate—but indoor 5G operations would be allowed. ISED has also established “protection zones” where 5G operations would be allowed, with restricted power. Furthermore, ISED requires, until it decides otherwise, that the 5G antennas tilt down, rather than horizontally or upward, so as not to interfere with the radio altimeters. These restrictions would be in effect until both domestic and international studies have come to a definite conclusion about the scope of the problem.

Similar discussion is going on in the United States, following the planned rollout of 5G in the 3.7 – 4.2 GHz section of spectrum known as the C-Band, originally due on December 5, now postponed until January 2022. Last year the Federal Communications Commission auctioned the rights to licenses in the C-Band to, among others, Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile to use for 5G services. These companies paid over $80 billion for spectrum that would help provide consumers with faster mobile Internet services. The C-Band is much closer to the spectrum used for altimeters, and consequently the C-Band would reasonably pose greater interference concerns than the 3.45 – 3.55 GHz band. The FCC order authorizing the C-Band auction mentions altimeters but makes no specific accommodation for them.

FAA questions air safety and 5G

WASHINGTON (Reuters) –  The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has raised significant concerns about a plan to use spectrum for 5G wireless networks on aviation safety and is planning to issue a formal warning about the issue, according to sources and a letter seen by Reuters.

The aviation industry has voiced alarm about the plan to use C-Band spectrum for more than a year. Network carriers are expected to begin using the spectrum starting Dec. 5 starting in 46 markets.

FAA Deputy Administrator Bradley Mims in a previously unreported Oct. 6 letter said the agency shares “the deep concern about the potential impact to aviation safety resulting from interference to radar altimeter performance from 5G network operations in the C band.”

An FAA spokeswoman said Friday it “continues to engage with other agencies so that aviation and the newest generation of 5G cellular technology can safely coexist.”

The Federal Communications Commission said Friday it remains committed to ensuring air safety as the agency’s successful track record demonstrates, while moving forward with the deployment of new technologies that support American business and consumer needs.”

The FAA held a lengthy Oct. 14 meeting with the aviation industry on the issue. FAA and FCC officials have held numerous discussions about the issue, the sources said.

The FAA is planning to soon issue a Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin and an airworthiness directive about the issue, two officials told Reuters, confirming a Wall Street Journal report.

The aerospace and airline sector met with the FCC in August https://ecfsapi.fcc.gov/file/1081157361951/Aviation%20and%20Aerospace%20Ex%20parte%20Notice%20Aug%206%202021%20w%20OET%20WTB%20IB.pdf, warning without changes “major disruptions to use of the National Airspace System can be expected from the rollout of 5G” and added the FAA will be forced to “drastically reduce aviation operational capacity.” 

Wireless trade group CTIA said Friday 5G networks can safely use C-band spectrum “without causing harmful interference to aviation equipment,” and cited numerous active 5G networks using this spectrum band in 40 countries… Any delay in activating this spectrum risks America’s competitiveness.”

One longer-term solution is retrofitting some altimeters with “out-of-band filters,” but it would likely take years and “many thousands of civil aircraft are likely to be impacted, the aviation industry said.

Historic Win’: CHD Wins Case Against FCC on Safety Guidelines for 5G and Wireless

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit court ruled the Federal Communications Commission failed to provide a reasoned explanation for its determination that its current guidelines adequately protect against harmful effects of exposure to radiofrequency radiation.

This is an historic win. The FCC will have to re-open the proceeding and for the first time meaningfully and responsibly confront the vast amount of scientific and medical evidence showing that current guidelines do not adequately protect health and the environment.

The court’s decision continued to say:

 “…the FCC completely failed to acknowledge, let alone respond to, comments concerning the impact of RF radiation on the environment…The record contains substantive evidence of potential environmental harms.”

The petitioners in the case filed 11,000 pages of evidence of harm from 5G and wireless technology which the FCC ignored, including evidence of already existing widespread sickness. This historic case was filed by CHD on Feb. 2, 2020. The case challenged the agency’s decision not to review its 25-year-old radio-frequency emissions (RF) guidelines which regulate the radiation emitted by wireless technology devices (such as cell phones and iPads) and infrastructure (cell towers, Wi-Fi and smart-meters), and to promulgate biologically and evidence-based guidelines that adequately protect public health.

CHD’s lawsuit was filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. However it was transferred to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit where it was joined with a similar lawsuit filed by the Environmental Health Trust and Consumers for Safe Cell Phones. The main brief and the reply brief were filed jointly by all petitioners.

5G hurts

Scientists have proven that radio frequency (RF)
radiation can be absorbed by insects, raising
internal temperatures, interfering with
reproduction or triggering other responses. This
has dramatic implications for our natural world
as purveyors of 5G technology push ahead with
their plans to blanket the country with powerful
4G/5G antennas.

Dutch court: possibly increased health risks transmission tower

Breakthrough!

The judgment of the Gelderland District Court (AWB 19/2184) – in conjunction with judgment AWB 19/2213– on December 18, 2020 is of great importance because the court ruled that even (very broadly) increased health risks under the exposure guidelines are not excluded. The court also ruled that the health interests of local residents who are sensitive to radiation must be included in the weighing of interests. It is the first time in Dutch case law that the exposure limits are no longer leading due to advancing scientific insight. Earlier case law of the Department of the Council of State (Division) in which it always refers to an outdated expert report seems to have been discontinued. This statement offers opportunities for a new substantive discussion about the health effects of radiation,

Think 5G phones are safe? Think again!

We were skeptical about the new 5G phones which will still mostly operate on 5G to little benefit no matter what the telecom ads tell you. Now we find the exposure seems to exceed recognized limits for safety:

A new peer-reviewed paper, “Human Electromagnetic Field Exposure in 5G at 28 GHz,” questions the safety of exposure to 5G millimeter waves. The authors found in a simulation study that use of a 5G cell phone at 28 GHz could exceed ICNIRP (i.e. international) radio frequency exposure limits when held at 8 centimeters (i.e., 3 inches) or closer to the head or body. Whereas the ICNRIP exposure limit for the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is 2.0 watts per kilogram averaged over 10 grams of tissue, the FCC limit is 2-3 times more conservative, namely the SAR limit is 1.6 watts per kilogram averaged over only 1 gram of tissue. This means compliance with the FCC exposure limit would require a greater separation distance from the body than 8 centimeters in the U.S.

Electromagnetic radiation could contribute to insect demise

reprinted from Courthouse News Service BERLIN (AFP) — Radiation from mobile phones could have contributed to the dramatic decline in insect populations seen in much of Europe in recent years, a German study showed Thursday.

On top of pesticides and habitat loss, increased exposure to electromagnetic radiation is “probably having a negative impact on the insect world,” according to the study presented in Stuttgart, which is yet to be peer reviewed.

The analysis of 190 scientific studies was carried out by Germany’s Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union (NABU) together with two NGOs, one from Germany and one from Luxembourg.

Of the 83 studies deemed scientifically relevant, 72 showed that radiation had a negative effect on bees, wasps and flies.

These effects ranged from a reduced ability to navigate due to the disturbance of magnetic fields to damage to genetic material and larvae.

Mobile phone and Wi-Fi radiation in particular opens the calcium channels in certain cells, meaning they absorb more calcium ions.

This can trigger a biochemical chain reaction in insects, the study said, disrupting circadian rhythms and the immune system.

“The study shows that we must keep our eyes open in all directions when analyzing the causes of the dramatic insect decline,” said Johannes Enssle, head of NABU in the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg.

“The subject is uncomfortable for many of us because it interferes with our daily habits and there are powerful economic interests behind mobile communication technology,” Enssle said.

Peter Hensinger of the German consumer protection organization Diagnose Funk said closer attention must be paid to the possible negative effects of radiation on both animals and humans, particularly with regard to the introduction of 5G technology.

Networks equipped with 5G are expected to offer speeds 100 times faster than existing 4G networks, but the technology has been met with strong opposition from some quarters, especially among environmental campaigners.

Donald Trump Signs The “Secure 5G and Beyond Act of 2020″ Into Law

President Donald Trump signed into law a pair of bills designed to boost wireless and broadband networks: the Secure 5G and Beyond Act and the Broadband Deployment Accuracy and Technological Availability Act.

In the case of 5G wireless technology, a number of scientists, journalists and activists have voiced their concern regarding the implementation of such technology. A few months ago, a number of doctors, scientists and activists have sent a National 5G Resolution letter to President Trump, requesting a moratorium on 5G technology until the potential hazards for human health have been appropriately investigated.

Dr. Martin L. Pall, PhD and Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University wrote a report whose title says it all: “5G: Great risk for EU, U.S. and International Health! Compelling Evidence for Eight Distinct Types of Great Harm Caused by Electromagnetic Field(EMF) Exposures and the Mechanism that Causes Them.”  In his report he bluntly stated the following:

“Putting in tens of millions of 5G antennae without a single biological test of safety has got to be about the stupidest idea anyone has had in the history of the world.”

China, 5G, And The Wuhan Coronavirus

By Paul Doyon*    (excerpted here from the entire article https://www.electricsense.com/5g-coronavirus/

Could there be a link between the Coronavirus and 5G? Researcher and building biologist Paul Doyon has just spent the last 18 months in China. He’s written a brilliant article laying out the evidence. And how you can protect yourself—an EMF based protection strategy. Warning: this is a heavy science based article https://www.electricsense.com/5g-coronavirus/ with nearly 100 references to studies—neither Paul or myself want to be accused of fear-mongering:

The Chinese telecom companies started to offer commercial 5G services to its customers on the first of November last year. China had suddenly turned on the 5G switch, just less than two months before the COVID-19 outbreak, suddenly blanketing many cities with this 5G wireless radiation. At the moment, with 10,000 recently installed 5G antennas plastering its city, Wuhan is probably one of the most 5G-electropolluted cities on the planet. In fact, the highest death rates outside of China have been in places already implementing 5G technology, South Korea and Italy, for example.

And as of this writing, South Korea’s numbers of COVID-19 cases are also starting to skyrocket. As we can see from the above article, South Korea has the second highest number of 5G antennas with 75,000. That is a lot for a country its size. Is there a connection? I think there is with at present (Feb. 29, 2020) also the highest number of coronavirus cases (3150) and one of the highest number of death rates (17) outside of ChinaThe three cities in Zhejiang Province with the most cases have been Hangzhou (168 cases), Ningbo (156 cases), and Wenzhou (503 cases), 50 which are also curiously the cities selected to trial the 5G. 8400 5G base stations have recently been installed in Zhejiang Province.

Link 5G and biological effects: Wireless radiation from 1G to 5G have all emitted modulated “Radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields (EMFs)” and there are literally thousands of studies showing biological effects from exposures to man-made electromagnetic waves, and out of these, hundreds showing biological effects on the immune system. (see article for studies) While there are multiple mechanisms involved by which EMFs do weaken the immune system, there is no question that EMFs can indeed have an adverse effect on the immune system. Furthermore, as we have gone up the spectrum from 1G to 5G, with each new generation there has been increased modulation, and increased modulation means increased biological effects and biological harm for all life on this planet. 5G is no exception. Oram Miller goes onto further explain, “All of these advanced technologies push more cell signals into the same airspace at faster speeds with far more modulation than current 4G cell technologies.”

In a recent paper of his titled “Massive Predicted Effects of 5G,” (Dec. 17, 2019) 69 Dr. Martin Pall, Ph.D. (Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences, Washington State University) states that “given the high pulsation level for 5G radiation, even short exposures may well produce severe biological effects,” not to mention the power densities of up to 30 times higher than previous systems of 1G to 4G and with penetration being enhanced via the magnetic component. He is predicting that with the full-fledged turning on of 5G (versus just its trial phase, where there is little communication yet happening with the 5G), that we will be seeing (1) decreased human reproduction, (2) lowered collective brain function, (3) very early-onset Alzheimer’s, (4) increased autism and ADHD, (5) deterioration of the human gene pool, and (6) massive increases in cardiac arrests.

While following the rollout of 5G, he has tracked numerous signs of its biological effects. For example, he has outlined increases in neuropsychiatric effects, cardiac effects, and electromagnetic hypersensitivity, taken from Swiss online articles, 70 71 as what we are starting to see with the advent of this technology:
• Increases in insomnia, tinnitus, headaches, inability to concentrate, and fatigue.
• Increases in electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS).
• Increases in cardiac arrhythmias.

Conclusion

China is a great country with an amazing populace who have made astounding advancements creating a very sophisticated modern country in the last ten years, surpassing many other modern countries in many ways. However, given the facts that

  1. we have real data that shows indeed that wireless radiation impacts the immune system;
    2. we have numerous patients outside of the 5G zone showing no or only mild symptoms,
    3. there have recently been 10,000 5G antennas installed and turned on in Wuhan, not to mention 130,000 5G antennas installed throughout greater China;
    4. there have recently been 5G systems installed in numerous hospitals in China, not to mention the new COVID-19 hospitals;
    5. we are seeing higher numbers of COVID-19 infections in places like Hangzhou and Wenzhou, not to mention South Korea, etc. where they have also recently installed numerous 5G antennas; and
    6. there has been no testing done to find out the biological implications of exposing life forms to this radiation.

We can conclude that the real problem here may very well in fact be with the 5G electromagnetic radiation weakening people’s immune systems, not to mention possibly making the virus itself more virulent. And if this is true and if China does not change course, 5G might very well become its — and the rest of the world’s Titanic — with the COVID-19 (and others like it) its icebergs.

Fox News alerts: cell phone radiation risk

Occasionally, the media gets it right. Tucker Carlson on iPhone testing at 5x higher than legal radiation limits: “Twenty years from now, we’re going to look at that and laugh bitterly, like one of those Camel ads with smoking doctors.”
Thanks to the advent of technology, we can access and share information through our phones at lightning speed. We use it to educate ourselves and keep updated with current events. We use it for entertainment, and we use it for work.

However, this advancement comes with a price. In the video above (and on YouTube here), Tucker Carlson talks about the health risks of using mobile phones, and why it’s crucial to raise awareness of this urgent matter.

Carlson states,

“The National Toxicology Program, a government organization, found that ‘high exposure to radiofrequency radiation used by cell phones was associated with clear evidence of tumors in rats.’

“In 2012, Italy’s Supreme Court upheld a ruling that said there was a link between a business executive’s brain tumor and his heavy use of a mobile phone.”

Phones Exceed the Legal Limits of Radiation Exposure

The main health-related criteria for a phone to be approved for sale by FCC is by ensuring the device will not exceed the maximum allowable Specific Absorption Rating (SAR). This standard, however, is much too relaxed and is not based on the existing body of science, but rather on the thermal effect only.

While the SAR rating is based on a heating effect only, thousands of studies indicate non-thermal effects, and thus conclude that the SAR limit is entirely inadequate.

But today’s phones are now proven to exceed even the SAR-based legal limit of radiation.

The Chicago Tribune tested almost a dozen of phones according to the federal guidelines at an FCC-accredited lab. According to the Tribune, iPhone 7, one of the most popular smartphones ever sold, measured over the legal limit and is more than twice the amount of what Apple has reported to the regulators from its own testing.

As mentioned by Tucker Carlson in the video, in another lawsuit against Apple and Samsung, a test in an FCC-accredited lab shows that at 0mm, iPhone 8 hits the user with 5 times more radiation than the federal exposure limit allows, while Samsung hits users up to 3 times the limit,

Poor Testing Standards and Lawsuit

The FCC allows manufacturers to test their phone’s radiofrequency radiation emissions from up to 25 millimeters away from the body.

However, when we talk to someone on the phone, we normally have it right beside our ears. And having our phones in our pockets puts it at 2mm or less away from our body, making the testing criteria inapplicable and useless.

Not to mention its “one-size-fits-all” approach that doesn’t consider children or pregnant users of these phones.

With all the screening and testing being done, keep in mind that only one phone needs to be tested before millions of phones go on sale. At the same time, manufacturers can select the testing lab.

These poor testing standards are not only inaccurate based on how people use their phones, but it also leaves too much room for inconsistency and perhaps, dishonesty, with the results reported to the FCC and the emissions of the actual phones that will be used by the consumer.

In a December 2019 class action lawsuit against Apple and Samsung stemming from the Tribune’s tests, a California judge called the FCC “dumb”, before moving the case to trial.

(NOTE: While this story was updated here, there are indications that pressure was likely applied by industry and/or their captured agencies to change the story in an attempt to deflect focus from the FCC as a culpable party, so there was perhaps more accuracy in the originally-published story.)

Phone Manufacturers Are Deceiving Us

One of the most censored subjects in the USA according to American organization Project Censored, the Phonegate Scandal revealed the general deception by phone manufacturers about the real exposure values of SAR (the unit used to measure RFR absorption rate).

With the Tribune’s tests, Apple disputed the results, stating that the tests were not done the way Apple does them, without going to the specifics of what was out of the ordinary, and did not respond to requests for clarification.

These and other obvious efforts to mask the truth from the consumers and hide the fact that we are being overexposed to harmful radiofrequency radiation is a serious matter that concerns all of us.

Sadly, there is not yet enough conversation in the country about this issue and our health and safety are being sidelined.

With 5G being deployed despite no testing that indicates it is safe, this makes the issue critically urgent.

There are far too few stories like this in our mainstream media, which is heavily influenced by advertising dollars and business arrangements with wireless companies.

With almost non-existent media attention, it’s up to us to spread the word and help make our voices louder until we are heard, and until action is taken to ensure the health and safety of our community.

As Tucker Carlson correctly says,

“Twenty years from now, we’re going to look at that and laugh bitterly, like one of those Camel ads with smoking doct

MA EMF bills out of committee!!

News from Massachusettes for Safe Technology:

The Massachusetts EMF bills…

Thank you to everyone who wrote bills, sent in testimony, called in support, or simply sent good energy our way — it is working and we just cleared several hurdles!

Joint Committee on Consumer Protection

  • Reported out favorably: Senator Julian Cyr’s S. 129 to form a commission to investigate the health and economic impact of wireless radiation.

Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy

  • Reported out favorably: Senator Michael Moore’s S. 1988 right-to-choose non-radiation-emitting utility meters.

Joint Committee on Economic Development and Emerging Technologies

  • Filed a May 4 extension for H. 383 so they have time to investigate. We presented the facts on 5G and have their attention.

Other Committees

  • We suspect the remaining bills have been sent to study, which means they could be revisited until July 31st, or not.
  • I will post updates as they are confirmed at Understanding EMFs.

 

What Happens Next?

Advancing bills will need to go to the House and Senate for approval, then to the Governor’s desk to be enacted before the end of the year.

New Hampshire and Oregon have acted swiftly, so we remain hopeful Massachusetts will be next!

We await the Senate Clerk’s assignment to the next committee and will be in touch with quick action items once we know more.
