Telecoms Control Media, Block Reports of Wi-Fi Dangers, Says Flynn
by Jack O'Dwyerwww.odwyerpr.com, 23 June 2017

AT&T ($3.3B in ads), Comcast ($3B), and Verizon ($2.5B) are blocking press coverage of the dangers of Wi-Fi and other forms of radiation, says Jerry Flynn, retired Canadian Army officer.

The three are among the top five advertisers. The only company with a bigger ad budget is Procter & Gamble at $4.6B. Ford also spends $2.5B in ads.

Flynn, who supervised research on pulsed radiation for the Canadian Army for the purpose of harming enemies, made his charge June 9 in an email to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

“North America’s mainstream news media are controlled by just a handful of multinational corporations who control what we see on TV, what we hear on the radio and what we read in newspapers,” said Flynn.

“Consequently, few people know the corruption that has taken place over the past 50 years – and is ongoing – which now literally threatens life on earth as we know it!” he said.

Wi-Fi Embrace by FCC's O’Rielly Alarms Health Advocates

Wi-Fi Embrace by FCC's O’Rielly Alarms Health Advocates

Ecstatic remarks by FCC Commissioner Mike O’Rielly on the first “World Wi-Fi Day” June 20 have caused a bout of head shaking and alarm in the Wi-Fi health community.

O’Rielly pulled out all the stops in singing the praises of the observance, saying it “acknowledges the wonderful technology” that has been developed.

He sees a world literally bathed in wireless transmission of information.

“It’s more than likely than not that internet traffic will continue to shift to Wi-Fi for the foreseeable future and security enhancements will reverse threats of exposed consumer experiences,” he said.

“Moreover, ubiquitous Wi-Fi voice calling and a truly mesh network seem not far away. Wi-Fi incorporation into location technologies seems a guarantee especially for hard to reach areas such as building interiors,” he added.

One-third of preschoolers own smartphones or tablets, child health poll finds
Australian Associated Press / The Guardian, 20 June 2017

Half of the children in poll using devices unsupervised and two-thirds of families report conflict related to screen time

A third of preschoolers and two-thirds of primary school-aged children own smartphones or tablets – and 50% of them are using them unsupervised, the latest Australian Child Health Poll shows.

The paediatrician Dr Anthea Rhodes, the director of the national poll, said knowing so many very young children were spending too much time on devices was a “worrying” trend.

Rhodes said there was very little evidence to support the idea a smartphone or tablet boosted a toddler’s development. But there was plenty of evidence linking excessive use to health problems.

Data Indicates Cell Phones Expose Consumers To Radiation Levels Higher Than Manufacturers Claim, Says The French Government

"Thank you, courageous and committed, Dr. Marc Arazi!  May you always be held safe from microwave and cell phone industry harms. You had the courage of heart and professional commitment to go where no one would go and, thank God, you prevailed in a court of common sense, and not like the courts, FCC and public utility commissions in the USA when it comes to vested-interest microwave technology pseudoscience! Wake up, USA!"

Data Indicates Cell Phones Expose Consumers To Radiation Levels Higher Than Manufacturers Claim, Says The French Government
by Catherine J. Frompovich, Activistpost.com, 20 June 2017

The Environmental Health Trust published “Cell Phone Radiation Scandal: More Exposure Than Manufacturers Claim ‘PhoneGate’ In France, government data release reveals 9 out of 10 phones tested exceed regulatory limits” [1].

The French ANFR published online on June 1, 2017, a listing of cell phone data “details of make, model and test results for each cell phone that was tested, after months of legal action by French physician Dr. Marc Arazi.”

According to Environmental Health Trust,

Popular brands such as Apple, Motorola, Samsung and Nokia were among the cell phone models tested. When tested in contact with the body, some phones have test results as high as triple the manufacturer’s previously reported radiation levels. [1] [CJF emphasis]

Keith Armstrong, worldwide electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) expert at EMC Standards, looks at how electrical interference from mobiles and shop scanners can cause heart-rate pacemaker issues.

Keith Armstrong, worldwide electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) expert at EMC Standards, looks at how electrical interference from mobiles and shop scanners can cause heart-rate pacemaker issues.

Even everyday technology can have a dangerous effect on pacemakers and other implanted medical devices.

Research has indicated that interference may be caused by holding a mobile phone within 150mm of the implanted device, or with direct contact between the phone antenna and the user’s skin.

Are “Wi-Fi Allergies” an Impairment Covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?

Are “Wi-Fi Allergies” an Impairment Covered by the ADA?

Some individuals believe that electromagnetic hypersensitivity can be caused by electromagnetic fields emitted from computers, mobile phones, cell phone towers, TVs, radios, Wi-Fi connections and other technology. Although several organizations have tested this theory over the years, there is a lack of scientific evidence to correlate electromagnetic fields to the non-specific electromagnetic hypersensitivity symptoms such as headache, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, and rash. In 2004, the World Health Organization noted scientific research has not been able to support a causal relationship between electromagnetic fields and self-reported electromagnetic hypersensitivity. However, as time passes and technology develops, this may not continue to be the case.

Parents Need Information on Cell Phones, Not State Mandates

Letter: Parents need information on cell phones, not state mandates
by Heather Lahdenpera, coloradoan.com, 20 June 2017

I am writing in response to the article “Hanging Up on Kids’ Smartphones.” While I understand the concerns that are meant to be addressed with the proposed bill, I do not think this is a matter for the state to decide. Whether or not a child is given a smartphone should ultimately be up to the parents.

However, let me be clear, in order for a parent to make proper and informed decisions for their children about cell phones and other devices, a parent must be aware of the potential risks. Most parents are not aware of the many dangers of cell phone use. There are warnings buried layers deep within our phones and devices. For examples of these warnings you can visit showthefineprint.org.

World Health Organization, Radiofrequency Radiation and Health - A Hard Nut to Crack (Review)

WHO Radiofrequency Radiation Policy

World Health Organization, radiofrequency radiation and health - a hard nut to crack (Review)

Today the International Journal of Oncology published a critique of the World Health Organization's pending review of the adverse health effects of wireless (i.e., radio frequency or RF) radiation. The critique was written by Dr. Lennart Hardell, the world's preeminent researcher on brain tumor risk and long-term cell phone use.

His paper provides an historical overview of WHO's EMF Project, WHO's relationship to the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), and the relationships of both organizations to the military and electric and telecom industries.

The long electoral sequence ended last Sunday. Both Agnès Buzyn and Nicolas Hulot have been confirmed in their respective ministerial responsibilities. It is therefore time to write to them officially to inform them of the health and industrial scandal concerning all mobile phones sold both in France and Europe since 1999 and ask them to take action.

Read the letter to the Ministers.
