Major Canadian Study Finds Cell Phone Use Increases Risk For Brain Cancer
American Journal of Epidemiology 2017

A newly published report in the American Journal of Epidemiology just released this week, confirms that Canadians who have used cellphones for 558 hours or more have more than a doubled risk of brain cancer. These important findings strengthen the association between glioma, an aggressive brain cancer, and cell phone use.

The original 13-nation Interphone study for the International Agency for the Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization reported reported a 40% increase in brain cancer for those using phones for 1640 lifetime hours. This new study found that Canadians had more than a doubled glioma risk when they were analyzed apart from the 12 other countries.
“Governments have allowed this technology to pervade our lives saying it did not have proof it could harm us. We now have evidence from the latest Canadian Interphone study data that found a statistically significant doubling of risk for glioma among cell phone users with only 558 lifetime hours of use.

How long will it take a teenager to amass 558 hours of cell phone use?

5G And The IOT: Scientific Overview Of Human Health Risks

5G And The IOT: Scientific Overview Of Human Health Risks

5G is the term used to describe the next-generation of mobile networks beyond the 4G LTE mobile networks commonly used today. Currently there is no standard for 5G networks in place and it will be a combination of a variety of frequencies and modulations. Industry is developing exactly what 5G will be. It is assumed that 5G networks will not become commercially available until 2020 but several cities are rolling out 5G as test areas now.

Published peer reviewed science already indicates that the current wireless technologies of 2G, 3G and 4G – in use today with our cell phones, computers and wearable tech – creates radiofrequency exposures which poses a serious health risk to humans, animals and the environment. Scientists are cautioning that before rolling out 5G, research on human health effects urgently needs to be done first to ensure the public and environment are protected.

How Cellphones Can Cause Brain Tumors and Trigger Chronic Disease

Keeping the phone 1 inch away from your skull will have a relatively modest reduction in exposure. You need to move it 2 TO 3 FEET (around 1 meter) away from your head to reduce the exposure by over 90 percent.

Story at-a-glance

  • Exposure to cellphone radiation may or may not increase your risk of brain tumor formation, but this is a minor risk compared to damage done by free radicals from peroxynitrites that radically impair mitochondrial function
  • Science has linked exposure to peroxynitrites from low-frequency microwave radiation emitted from cellphones and Wi-Fi networks with chronic diseases such as heart disease, obesity and inflammatory bowel disease
  • You can reduce your exposure by shutting off your Wi-Fi at night, keeping cellphones in airplane mode unless using them, using the speaker phone and using a selfie stick when talking on it

BMW Wages War on 'Electrosmog'

BMW wages war on ‘electro smog’

Munich's research and innovations boffins warn against unlimited electro-magnetic radiation

BMW’s Vehicle Research and Innovations Centre, known by its German acronomym ‘FIZ’ (pictured), is on the frontline of a battle to contain electro-magnetic radiation – known within the organisation as ‘electro smog’.

Ultra-high frequency and microwave radiation waves are all around us, says BMW spokesman Andreas Metzner, but electro smog is especially hazardous around the historic city of Augsburg, where the American signals intelligence collection agency, the NSA, operates a facility.

The electro smog emanating from that facility is extreme, but Germany is powerless to impose restrictions on the NSA, “because they’re Americans”, Metzner flippantly observes.

Why is electro smog such a concern?

According to the BMW spokesman, strong radiation could interfere with a car’s on-board radar-based AEB (autonomous emergency braking). Such a conflict could be misconstrued by the car’s computer as an obstacle less than three metres ahead. At autobahn speeds that could be a catastrophic event considerably worse than just spilling your sippy cup of coffee in your lap.

Hayley Riddick is concerned at the risk of her children developing childhood leukaemia, brain tumours or brain cancer

A Frome mother battling to prevent a telephone antenna being installed outside her home says she is afraid that it could create health risks for her children.

Hayley Riddick, who is mother to twin daughters, aged eight months, and a son aged three and a half, is concerned the monopole could heighten the risk of her children developing childhood leukaemia, brain tumours or brain cancer.

Plans to install the monopole at the junction between Grange Road and Bath Road were submitted by Vodafone last month. The 15m shrouded monopole – otherwise known as an antenna – will come with two microwave dishes and three equipment cabinets.

EKG Evidence that Smart Meters Negatively Affect the Human Heart

There have been numerous whistleblowers to warn of the negative effects of smart meters on human health but perhaps none has been so successful in scientifically proving this claim as Warren Woodward of Sedona, Arizona. He recently put AMI ‘smart’ meters to the test, and using EKG technology, has proven that smart meters throw the human heart off its balanced beat.

Wireless Radiation/Electromagnetic Fields Increases Toxic Body Burden

It is a known fact that lead, air pollution, and other toxic chemicals can damage our health and, more specifically, these toxins can damage brain development. In addition, wireless and EMF radiation can synergistically increase the effect of these daily toxic exposures because of the ways in which wireless radiation alters the body’s natural functioning.

Wireless radiation has been shown to damage sleep and the blood-brain barrier, which in turn can lead to higher toxic load on the body. Furthermore, well done replicated research studies have found that a known carcinogen exposure in combination with wireless and EMF exposure leads to a significantly increased risk of cancer development.

Wireless Alters Sleep Architecture.

Sleep is critical to health. Recent scientific discoveries have added to our understanding of how deep sleep not only consolidates memories but is actually a time when the brain cleans out toxins. A 2013 NIH-funded study suggests sleep “clears brain of damaging molecules associated with neurodegeneration.” Therefore, sleep damage could decrease the brain’s ability to detox at night.

To get a handle on your online privacy, first understand how much of your data is already out there, and how it can be weaponized

Privacy wasn’t a concern for her until it was too late.

The woman, who agreed to share her story if she weren’t to be identified, told me she left home one midnight, after four years in a relationship. She moved away and restarted her life. But then, she says, she was bombarded by phone calls from men soliciting her for sex. Then came bizarre friend requests on social media. She says one man showed up at her house.

Are we about to witness the most unequal societies in history?
Yuval Noah Harari,
The Guardian, 24 May 2017

Biotechnology and the rise of AI may split humankind into a small class of ‘superhumans’ and a huge underclass of ‘useless’ people. Once the masses lose their economic and political power, inequality levels could spiral alarmingly

Inequality goes back to the Stone Age. Thirty thousand years ago, bands of hunter-gatherers in Russia buried some members in sumptuous graves replete with thousands of ivory beads, bracelets, jewels and art objects, while other members had to settle for a bare hole in the ground.

Health Advocates Want Warnings on All Wireless Industry Ads

This article cites the 33 recommendations made by the National Institute for Science, Law and Public Policy which wants "warnings added to cellphone manuals and warnings provided to children and their parents. It urges schools and companies to keep powerful Wi-Fi routers away from places where people spend much of their time."

Health Advocates Want Warnings on All Wireless Industry Ads

by Jack O'Dwyerodwyerpr.com, 24 May 2017

The Federal Communications Commission is being asked to require that industry ads recommend use of cellphones only in speaker mode or with a headset and that texting replace holding a phone to the head.

The request is among 33 made by the National Institute for Science, Law and Public Policy which reviewed actions being taken “in more than two dozen countries to encourage and empower citizens to live with and use wireless.”

NISLAPP was founded in 1978 “to bridge the gap between scientific uncertainties and the need for laws protecting public health and safety.” It aims to “bring the practice of science and law together to develop intelligent policy.”

A law passed by Congress in 1965 required cigarette ads and packaging to carry warnings about the ill health effects of smoking. It was based on findings of the U.S. Surgeon General.
