    Book Review: The Triumph of Doubt Exposes the Disinformation Playbook in Action

    Excerpt: What do tobacco, silica, diesel, teflon, asbestos, lead, PFAS, sugar, talc, alcohol, opiods, climate change, and even football head injuries have in common? Aside from their inherent dangers and significant public health and environmental impacts? Aside from the rigor of the scientific evidence about these impacts? And aside from powerful industries whose profits derive from their use? The answer: They are examples in a well-honed industry public relations playbook based on deception and used to manufacture doubt and uncertainty about the dangers of these products. The playbook’s goal? Confuse the public, stymie any governmental action to protect the public from harm, and protect producer profits for as long as possible…SNIP

    The Largest Unethical Medical Experiment in Human History (Monograph)

    Excerpt: This monograph describes the largest unethical medical experiment in human history: the implementation and operation of non-ionizing non-visible EMF radiation (hereafter called wireless radiation) infrastructure for communications, surveillance, weaponry, and other applications. It is unethical because it violates the key ethical medical experiment requirement for “informed consent” by the overwhelming majority of the participants. The monograph provides background on unethical medical research/experimentation, and frames the implementation of wireless radiation within that context….SNIP

    The Australian 5G inquiry and Whirling Dervishes…

    Excerpt: At the International conference, Mobile Communications and Health: Medical, Biological and Social Problems, held in Moscow in 2004, The then ICNIRP chairman Paulo Vecchia stated the following in relation to ICNIRP’s so called precautionary principle approach: “ICNIRP only considers acute effects in its precautionary principle approach. Consideration of long-term effects is not possible. Precautionary actions to address public concerns may increase rather than mitigate worries and fears of the public. This constitutes a health detriment and should be prevented as other adverse effects of EME.”…SNIP

    The pitfalls of social media and technology

    Social media and the internet has rewired our brains and society in important yet sometimes worrying ways, writes Dali Sulejmani-Blackwell.SOCIAL MEDIA, also known as the “participative internet”, has grown rapidly in the 21st Century, creating a digitally-conscious world. It’s rare to have dinner with a friend or family member where there isn’t a phone on the table next to your food. Is this our fault, or is it a by-product of a digital world that has changed social mores?…SNIP

    Dariusz Leszczynski: We, the People… are driving insects to extinction…

    Excerpt: The list of environmental pollutants might be, however, soon expanded. The rapid deployment of the 5th generation of the wireless communication technology (5G), will cause that a huge number of the micro-cell-towers will be densely distributed throughout the urban areas. For the the non-urban areas there are plans to deploy satellites, to the low orbit, that would beam the microwaves and provide internet connectivity for any and all locations on earth…Without an urgent governmental intervention, this might be not so distant future…The 5G-involvement has been pointed out in a recent study. It has demonstrated that the radiation levels emitted by the cell towers of the 5G networks will heat bodies of insects to the levels that will be able to affect their normal physiology

    ICNIRP’s thermal only guidelines don’t work for insects with 5G-unless you like them fried…

    Extracts From the paper: Insects are continually exposed to Radio-Frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields at different frequencies. The range of frequencies used for wireless telecommunication systems will increase in the near future from below 6 GHz (2 G, 3 G, 4 G, and WiFi) to frequencies up to 120 GHz (5 G). This paper is the first to report the absorbed RF electromagnetic power in four different types of insects as a function of frequency from 2 GHz to 120 GHz. SNIP The studied insects that are smaller than 1 cm show a peak in absorption at frequencies (above 6 GHz), which are currently not often used for telecommunication, but are planned to be used in the next generation of wireless telecommunication systems. SNIP… This could lead to changes in insect behaviour, physiology, and morphology over time due to an increase in body temperatures, from dielectric heating.

    With 5G are we facing an insect apocalypse?

    The other day a message (below) was circulated online by Arthur Firstenberg. As it supposedly happened in Melbourne I decided to do a ‘fact check’ for possible fake news. I managed to contact the person that Arthur mentions (Angela) and yes it certainly appears that this was a real event – with enormous implications. Her neighbours have observed the same thing in their gardens (no insects) and some are also complaining about tinnitus and a sensation of “pressure in the head” since last November. But perhaps it is just not 5G to consider. What about 4G LTE as well? Read on…

    New Paper on 5G adverse health effects

    ADVERSE HEALTH EFFECTS OF 5G MOBILE NETWORKING TECHNOLOGY UNDER REAL-LIFE CONDITIONS

    Highlights

    * Identifies wide-spectrum of adverse health effects of non-ionizing non-visible radiation

    * Most laboratory experiments were not designed to identify the more severe adverse effects reflective of real-life conditions

    * Many experiments do not include the real-life pulsing and modulation of the carrier signal

    * Vast majority of experiments do not account for synergistic adverse effects of other toxic stimuli with wireless radiation

    * 5 G mobile networking technology will affect not only the skin and eyes, but will have adverse systemic effects as well

    The Road to Driverless Hell is Paved with Good Deceptions

    One of the prime reasons why 5G is being promoted is that it is claimed that the fast 5G millimeter frequency data rates are necessary to enable the technology where autonomous vehicles unproblematically rule the roads and all those unreliable accident prone human drivers (that’s all of us!) will be finally taken off the roads once and for all time.

    Not necessarily so according to the Tom Lewis article “The Road to Driverless Hell is Paved with Good Deceptions”, published in The Daily Impact. Some good links too! Recommended reading!

    Honey bees absorb more cell phone radiation at 5G mid-band and high-band frequencies

    So far over 10 million hectares of Australian land has been burnt to the ground with rough estimates of over 0ne billion animals destroyed, including thousands of koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, birds and other iconic Australian wildlife – and its still early in the bush fire season. As for pollinators such as the honey bee, according to Australian Honey Bee Industry Council chairman Peter McDonald, up to 2000 hives had been lost in NSW and up to 1000 in Queensland, but the true cost of the bushfires would be the effect on beehive health due to the loss of natural forest habitat. … “The bees feed in the forests, where they source pollen for breeding. It will take some time for honey bee populations to recover in burnt areas.” And now the bees and all other insects may well have to contend another threat in areas where the rollout of 5G transmitters are planned.  And with 5G planned for space giving blanket coverage to much of the planet, what will be the effects on insects? Perhaps the following research is a dire warning…. SNIP

    Australia Fires And Technology’s Climate Vampire: Why The Environmental Impact Of 5G Expansion Could Be Massive

    By Dr. Devra Davis

    The ravaging fires of Australia’s drought-riddled bush provide a global warning. Amidst the largest mass evacuation in its history with no relief in sight, thousands of Australians are now forced to shelter-in-place, while others are crammed into seashores where they await rescue by naval ships. Their only hope is to wait till much-needed rains quench the extraordinary raging blazes erupting amidst the hottest and driest year on record. Uncontrolled burning of coal and other fossil fuels has left the past decade the warmest in modern recorded history, scorching an area down under that is larger than the size of Denmark, and rendering the air of Canberra the worst in the world. Millions are at the mercy of searing temperatures and wicked winds. Ecologists estimate half a billion animals have been killed since the bushfires started in September. Sadly, much of this was predicted by United Nations experts of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, in which I was honored to participate. In 1997, I presented an analysis showing that airborne coal soot from fossil fuels globally would result in 700,000 avoidable deaths every single year and the death toll would rise to about 8 million by 2020. However, that study never imagined the devastating and heartbreaking impact of fires like now sweeping through Australia….SNIP

    5G underwhelms in its first big test in South Korea

    Excerpt: On December 27 2019 An opinion piece was published by the Canberra Times by Paul Fletcher, the federal Minister for Communications, Cyber Safety and the Arts. In his opinion piece, he assures the readers that “Australians can trust in safety of 5G network” and goes on to enthusiastically describe the many claims made by the promoters of 5G. However, before unquestionably spruiking the industry line, Fletcher should consider the problems encountered in the South Korea 5G rollout. He should also read the well over 400 submissions to the recent government 5G inquiry, the majority of which point out unintended consequences of 5G. But I suppose, for the federal government, soon to auction off parts of the 5G spectrum and rake in many $ millions for the treasury, knowing too much is not what Fletcher and his government really wants to know.

    Moratorium on 5G: American Scientists, Doctors and Healthcare Practitioners’ Letter to President Trump

    Excerpt
    Experts are urging for reductions in exposure to protect human health and the environment. From the Environmental Health Trust and published in Global Research. A broad coalition of scientists, doctors and advocates sent a National 5G Resolution letter to President Trump demanding a moratorium on 5G until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from the telecom industry. The 5G Resolution was developed during the first three-day US medical conference fully dedicated to this topic, Electromagnetic Fields Conference on Diagnosis and Treatment, which convened in Scotts Valley, California in September. The letter references the published scientific studies demonstrating harm to human health, bees trees and the environment from current wireless technology and posits that 5G will both increase exposure and add in new technology never safety tested for long-term exposure…SNIP

    The Australian government’s $9 Million 5G disinformation spin campaign begins

    It had to happen after all those anti-5G community protests. After comments from various industry groups to the recent government’s 5G inquiry over industry concerns about community opposition interfering with the rollout of 5G technology, the government has taken up their concerns. The Morrison government’s solution is a $9 million public relations misinformation campaign designed to convince the Australian public that 5G is safe after all – so that they can”feel empowered” and take up the technology and become happy consumers of all the wonders that 5G promises. It has been estimated 5G and the associated Internet of Things (IoT) and autonomous vehicles represents a $17 trillion windfall to the various industries pushing for 5G. Never mind the concerns over huge uncertainties and possible hazards, such as expressed by Dariusz Leszczynski and many others, its really just all about the money and to hell with pubic health. So here comes the government’s smoke & mirror circus assisted by the clowns at ARPANSA. and ACEBR. NOTE: For an interesting aside see the link on Prime Minister Scott Morrison and how his bizarre religious beliefs influence his politics.. .read on.

    ARPANSA claims 5G is safe by referring to bogus provocation studies.

    ARPANSA is scraping the botton of its scientific credibility barrel in its latest claims that 5G is safe by dredging up a double blind provocation study (from ACEBR) which found no evidence that exposure to electromagnetic fields was a cause of electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS). In the best of Hogwarts’ School of Wizardly, ARPANSA manages a

    Open Season on 5G Critics First NY Times, Now Scientific American

    From Microwave News

    December 6, 2019
    Excerpt: Simply saying that more health research is needed on 5G —the latest generation of cell phone technology— can be hazardous to your reputation.Last May, the New York Times tried to take down David Carpenter, a public health physician and the country’s most prominent 5G critic. Veteran science writer William Broad painted Carpenter as a willing tool of a disinformation campaign promoted by RT America, a TV network which he described as “the cat’s paw of Russian president, Vladimir Putin.” The page-one story ran under the headline, “Your 5G Phone Won’t Hurt You But Russia Wants You To Think Otherwise.”Two months later, on July 16, Broad was back for another hit on Carpenter. This time, he was given most of the front page of the Times’ Tuesday science section, to portray Carpenter as a fringe player working “hard to revise established science.”Much of what Broad wrote was fiction. (See “A Fact-Free Hit on a 5G Critic.”)Now Scientific American has ambushed Joel Moskowitz, one of the few other academics willing to state the obvious: No one knows whether 5G is safe…. SNIP

    November 5G posts by Dariusz Leszczynski including his New Zealand tour

    1) Leszczynski: 5G presentation at the Auckland University Posted on November 19, 2019. Here are slides of my lecture on November 2019 at the Auckland University, Nov. 19, 2019. Titled: 5G AND HEALTH –IS IT SAFE? WHAT THE SCIENCE TELLS US

    2)Asking the right questions: Guest Blog from Julius Gorm Graakjær Grantzau, former member of The Danish Parliament Posted on November 23, 2019 Excerpt: Below is the next in a series of Guest Blogs on BRHP. The opinions expressed in this Guest Blog are of Julius Gorm Graakjær Grantzau himself. Publication of these opinions in BRHP does not imply that BRHP automatically agrees with or endorses these opinions. Publication of this, and other guest blogs, facilitates an open debate and free exchange of opinions on wireless technology and health.

    3) presentation at the Victoria University in Wellington: Here are slides of my lecture at the Rutherford House Lecture Theatre, Victoria Business School, Victoria University of Wellington, Nov. 27, 2019. In my lectures, I am presenting science with all its limitations. I am trying to educate listeners that not every peer-reviewed study is a good quality study. That the design of the study may, and will, pre-determine the outcome of the study. Also, I am often pointing out that not every study is useful, or of value, for determining human health policies.However, I found it interesting that there are listeners, who come to me after lectures, and complain that my opinions are not good ones because some other scientist(s) think differently and claim that there is plenty of studies proving health harm. Hence, in the listener’s opinion, my opinions, claiming lack of sufficient evidence to prove health harm due to exposures to wireless radiation, are incorrect.However, when I ask these listeners what education and expertise they have to scientifically judge which of the expert opinions is the correct one, they are often offended.But this is a simple fact life. How, non-scientist with no education in this area of research, can decide which scientific expert opinion is correct? It seems that the only way the non-scientists make judgement is based on whether scientist’s opinion fits/agrees with their existing already belief what the heath hazard is, instead of listening with the open mind.

    City of Sydney’s submission to the government’s 5G inquiry: Sacrifice trees for network performance and overwhelming numbers of small cells…

    In stark contrast to the ACEBR/Vodafone/Telstra submissions (see last message) the city of Sydney has expressed very valid concerns over the introduction of 5G in the city. To quote in part from submission #310 from Sydney: “We know, for example that 5G millimetre wave radio spectrum is adversely affected by trees and that other physical assets and this adds a critical reason to collaboratively decide on cell heights and locations. We will not be willing to sacrifice trees in favour of network performance. Similarly, we need to consider the aesthetic and physical impacts of a potentially large volume of physical infrastructure which is located based on network performance only. We must find sustainable ways to advance the use of technology and we can do this only if we are an active part of the decision-making process within our city”…SNIP
