    Leszczynski on ICNIRP and 5G

    WE KNOW THAT WE DON’T KNOW BUT… UNDER DICTATE FROM TELECOMS AND ICNIRP, GOVERNMENTS DEPLOY 5G WITHOUT PRE-MARKET TESTING AND WITHOUT SETTING RESEARCH AGENDA ON 5G AND HEALTH. Yesterday, I came across a document, posted on twitter, from the Polish Ministry of Digital Affairs. The letter from Waldemar Kraska, Secretary of State, is addressed to Ms. Elżbieta Witek, Marszałek of Sejm (Speaker of Sejm). Here is the photo of the letter and google translation to English. “Dear Madam Marshal,In response to the inquiry no. 1048 submitted by Mr. Deputy Jarosław Rzepa on June 4, 2020, regarding the introduction of 5G technology in Poland, please accept the following.When answering question 1, it should be noted that there is no data yet on the impact of 5G technology on the health and life of Poles – the launch of such networks has begun in recent months. In February this year WHO has found that so far little research has been done into the frequencies used in newly developed 5G networks….SNIP

    Air pollution, chemical exposures and increased susceptability and severity to COVID-19

    Comment: In the book, Corporate Ties That Bind published in 2017, Chapter 11 written by Gunni Nordstrom, is titled: Ignoring Chronic Illness Caused by New Chemicals and TechnolologyAlthough having no mention of viruses, Investigative journalist Nordstrom delves into how exposure to modern chemicals in our environment can cause illness. Now some 5 years later the world is grappling with COVID-19 with all sorts of wacky conspiracy theories, muddying the waters, so to speak. However, the possible role of environmental chemical pollution as a co-factor in susceptibility and illness severity is not to be dismissed, such as the evidence that suggests that people who smoke are at increased risk of more severe outcomes from COVID-19…ALMOST SIX MONTHS into the coronavirus pandemic, it’s already clear that environmental pollution is responsible for some portion of the hundreds of thousands of Covid-19 deaths around the world. Now scientists are trying to pinpoint how exactly industrial chemicals make people more susceptible to the coronavirus and how much of the blame for the devastation wrought by the new coronavirus should be laid at the feet of the industry that produces those chemicals.Scientists have even managed to measure the precise harm that a single microgram/cubic meter increase in air pollution has on a population, which, according to researchers from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, is “an 8% increase in mortality from COVID-19.”…SNIP

    BBC caught with its finger in the 5G pie – or captured journalism

    The BBC aired their File on Four offering “the 5G Con that could make you sick” on Tuesday 16th June on Radio 4. File on Four is an “Award-winning current affairs documentary series investigating major issues at home and abroad”.The programme featured well known go-to 5G proponent David Robert Grimes who, egged on by presenter Tom Wright, took a laboured and sneering tone of boredom throughout at having to repeat such basic facts.This tone matched the context, in which Electro Hypersensitivity Sufferers (EHS) were presented as ‘dangerously’ believing that their symptoms are related to Electro Magnetic Frequencies (EMF). As the programme lumbered on, these unfortunates were eventually presented virtually as a virus in their own right, with the power to infect the world with this belief.The eminent and influential award winning scientist and writer Dr Devra Davis pulled her contribution to the programme citing concerns about the context: “I refused to participate in the BBC program when it became clear that they had conducted a sting operation by fraudulently inviting me to talk about the science when all they wanted to do was try to make a mockery of the serious concerns many scientists have a about EHS” Dr Davis commented. Introducing Conflict of Interest…SNIP

    Mullumbimby: The counterculture town fighting 5

    As 5G protests and misinformation mount around the world, many Australians are concerned the next generation mobile technology could pose health risks. In fact, a recent poll by Essential revealed one in eight blame the wireless network for spreading COVID-19. Hundreds of protesters have taken to the streets of Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne [See my previous post on False Flag demonstrations], and even the rural roads of Mullumbimby, a small town frequently dubbed the “anti-vaccine capital” of Australia. A stone’s throw from Byron Bay in New South Wales, Mullumbimby is a destination with a renowned history of counterculture. “This part of Australia has a long history of standing up to big corporations”, said Tashi Lhamo, administrator for local anti-5G group Northern Rivers for Safe Technology “We’re riding on the back of what happened out at Bentley with standing up against coal seam gas, and our Byron Shire Council, they stopped fluoride in the water. We stopped McDonalds.” “There is a community here that is cohesive and they know how to stand up to big corporations.”, Tashi told The Feed…SNIP

    Beware of “False Flag” anti-5G demonstrations

    The term “False Flag” is defined as a covert operation designed to deceive; the deception creates the appearance of a particular party, group, or nation being responsible for some activity, disguising the actual source of responsibility. After looking at a recent (May 10) demonstration against vaccinations/ COVID -19 restrictions/ and 5G conspiracies, etc., which took place in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Hobart (see media reporting below), I’m wondering just who these supposed demonstrators were and who organised the coordinated events?

    Rag tag hastily written signs with the usual mixture of radical looking protesters. A real win for the telco industry as it effectively gives the general public the impression that concerns over 5G are in the looney bin, not to be taken seriously.

    Now, if I were working for whatever professional PR firm has been tasked by the federal government to spend that $ 9 million budget to convince the Australian public that 5G is safe, this is exactly what I would do: SNIP

    Review of 5G mm-waves’ effects on skin, by D. Leszczynski

    Excerpt: In November 2019, during my lecture tour in New Zealand (Auckland, Hawke’s Bay, Wellington & Nelson) I have briefly presented the very limited scientific evidence on the possible effects of millimeter-waves of the 5G on skin and skin cells.Recently, I have written a review article presenting the to-date performed research on the effects of mm-waves on skin and it will be soon published in the peer-reviewed journal ‘Reviews in Environmental Health’. As soon as the article will be available on-line appropriate link will be provided on BRHP.For now, here is the abstract of the article, a quote from the Discussion section and the final Conclusion of the review.

    Legal Action Against 5G in the UK

    Consequence of 5G implementation: The consequence of doing nothing will allow irreparable harm to all life, most particularly the unborn, children, the elderly, anyone with underlying health conditions and people with metal implants. There will be a fundamental difference in our lives, we will lose our privacy as surveillance and social control by industry and governments becomes ubiquitous, tracking and monitoring leading to behaviour modification. We might ask ourselves whether we wish to have our lives become the property of any corporation for control and profit. Are we to be obedient to the interests of others, with choices reduced and decisions determined by an algorithm?  Or do we value our right to self determination without coercion, and free from harm?…SNIP

    In a post COVID-19 dystopian world “Humans are biohazards, machines are not.”

    Excerpt: For a few fleeting moments during New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s daily coronavirus briefing on Wednesday, the somber grimace that has filled our screens for weeks was briefly replaced by something resembling a smile.“We are ready, we’re all-in,” the governor gushed. “We are New Yorkers, so we’re aggressive about it, we’re ambitious about it. … We realize that change is not only imminent, but it can actually be a friend if done the right way.”The inspiration for these uncharacteristically good vibes was a video visit from former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, who joined the governor’s briefing to announce that he will be heading up a blue-ribbon commission to reimagine New York state’s post-Covid reality, with an emphasis on permanently integrating technology into every aspect of civic life…SNIP

    5G – a building biology perspective

    Published in the German Building Biology magazinebaubiologie magazin English language version of “5G aus baubiologischer Sicht“: Everybody is talking about 5G. The electrosmog debate has been stirred up again and all those concerns about the exposure to electromagnetic fields as well. The industry in particular, but also many other people would like to have faster and more powerful data networks. Yet others are concerned about radiation risks and data security. So what can building biology contribute to the solution, what do we know so far, and what do we have to expect from the future development of our ambient wireless environment?

    Hacking vulnerabilities with the Internet of Things (IoT)

    Excerpt: Red faces in Red Square, again. Last July, I reported on the hacking of SyTech, an FSB (Federal Security Service) contractor working on internet surveillance tech. Now, reports have emerged from Russia of another shocking security breach within the FSB ecosystem. This one has exposed “a new weapon ordered by the security service,” one that can execute cyber attacks on the Internet of Things (IoT)—the millions of connected devices now in our homes and offices.The goal of the so-called “Fronton Program” is to exploit IoT security vulnerabilities en masse—remember, these technologies are fundamentally less secure than other connected devices in homes and offices. In fact, one of the breached technical documents reported by BBC Russia even explains that “the Internet of Things is less secure than mobile devices and servers.” The security contractors highlight retained default “factory” passwords as the obvious weakness, one that is easy to exploit… SNIP

    New paper: Building science and radiofrequency radiation: What makes smart and healthy buildings

    Excerpt: Radiofrequency radiation (RFR), used for wireless communications and “smart” building technologies, including the “Internet of Things,” is increasing rapidly. As both RFR exposures and scientific evidence of harmful effects increase apace, it is timely to heed calls to include low RFR levels as a performance indicator for the health, safety and well-being of occupants and the environment.Adverse biochemical and biological effects at commonly experienced RFR levels indicate that exposure guidelines for the U.S., Canada and other countries are inadequate to protect public health and the environment.Some industry liability insurance providers do not offer coverage against adverse health effects from radiation emitted by wireless technologies, and insurance authorities deem potential liability as “high.” Internationally, governments have enacted laws, and medical and public health authorities have issued recommendations, to reduce and limit exposure to RFR.There is an urgent need to implement strategies for no- or low-RFR emitting technologies, and shielding, in building design and retrofitting. These strategies include installing wired (not wireless) Internet networks, corded rather than cordless phones, and cable or wired connections in building systems (e.g., mechanical, lighting, security). Building science can profit from decades of work to institute performance parameters, operationalizing prudent guidelines and best practices. The goal is to achieve RFR exposures that are ALARA, “As Low As Reasonably Achievable.”…SNIP

    Dariusz Leszczynski on a 5G moratorium

    Excerpt: From Dariusz LeszczynskiEsteemed anti 5G colleagues would like to have it both ways, but it is wrong.On one hand they claim, correctly, that the 5G was not tested for its health impact on humans. Meaning, there are no studies available to prove it safety. This is correct.But then, they claim that 5G is dangerous and proven to damage human health (Pall, Firstenberg, Davis et al.).Big question is: how do they know it?If, as they correctly claim, research on 5G and health has not been done then there is no evidence to show/prove that 5G is dangerous or that 5G is not dangerous.Also, what 5G frequencies they talk when referring to 5G? Those well below 6 GHz, that were used already and are known to possibly/probably affect health, though the proof of health damage is still elusive? Or are they talking about 26 GHz and 28 GHz and other frequencies over the 30 GHz (mmWaves) that were not studied?…SNIP

    Excerpt: From Joel M. Moskowitz’s blog: Electromagnetic Radiation Safety Those who promote 5G-coronavirus theories based on weak evidence undermine the credibility of scientists and medical doctors who have expressed concerns about 5G safety based on strong evidence (e.g., the 5G Appeal). Moreover, during this public health crisis, the Telecom industry can exploit these actions to convince mainstream news media to publish industry propaganda that 5G is safe.Following are some recent examples from the US, UK, and Europe of blowback in the mainstream news media regarding 5G-coronavirus theories:…SNIP

    Dariusz Leszczynski: Statement of Finland’s Sitra on the 5G deployment

    Excerpt: Sitra , the Finnish Innovation Fund, is an independent public foundation which operates directly under the supervision of the Finnish Parliament (Wikipedia link).In response to the request from the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Finland, Sitra has prepared a short statement concerning auction of the 26 GHz spectrum in Finland. Sitra’s statement was prepared by non-experts in the health and environmental effects of EMF. Thus, there is no information or discussion as to what opinion on the possible radiation effects on human health and environment is more plausible. However, the statement ends with a very clear message:“…If the necessary research data is not available, it must be obtained before making a decision…”Research data on the health and environmental effects of 5G-emitted millimeter-waves (including 26 GHz band) is extremely limited. Scientific information is absolutely insufficient to make educated and science based decisions concerning human health policy and environment protecting policy.The missing scientific data, as Sitra recommends, must be obtained before the decision on the full-blown deployment of the 5G technology is made….SNIP

    Video: “The 5G Trojan Horse” Documentary: (96 minutes)

    By Derrick Broze, Global Research, February 21, 2020Excerpt:Transcript and SourcesMy name is Derrick Broze. For the past 8 years I have worked as an independent freelance investigative journalist in Houston, Texas. Since 2012 I have covered a wide range of topics, from indigenous resistance at Standing Rock, exposing government and corporate surveillance, and reporting from important trials like Chelsea Manning’s sentencing, and the Silk Road trial. Throughout this time, I have noticed that choosing to investigate certain topics, often results in being labeled a conspiracy theorist, or, at the very least, a proponent of less-than-credible journalism. One of these “forbidden” topics relates to potential harms caused by the use of cell phones and related digital technology.Over the years I have seen articles discussing research on the dangers of radio frequency radiation and electromagnetic fields. Again, I noticed these studies never made mainstream newspapers, or headlines on the 24 hour cable news cycle. Even if the news had reported on this information, would it have made a difference?I – like millions of people around the world – never gave a second thought to the possibility that cell phones or laptops could be causing harm to human health. We assume that the government agencies responsible for these fields have tested everything for safety. I started to wonder Has this blind faith in authority been a huge mistake? …SNIP

    With 5G, cities and suburbs will feel the heat

    Excerpts: Quoting from the Sydney City Council’s submission to the recent Australian 5G inquiry: “We know, for example that the 5G millimeter wave radio spectrum is adversely affected by trees and 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.” So,  in a future 5G city and suburban world which will require thousands of additional with small cell antennas along every street utilising millimeter transmissions, trees may be in the way of achieving those blazing internet speeds. Tree-lined streets, especially on wet days will be an impediment to 5G progress. What will be sacrificed?. . . Even without 5G, trees in the suburbs are having a hard time according to the ABC News: “Tree loss is making for sweaty suburbs, and the households that can least afford it are feeling the heat”.SNIP

    Einar Flydal on ICNIRP’s “acceptable science”

    Excerpt:
    A few weeks ago, the president of Switzerland and her counsel received a serious letter. The authors were a number of the world’s foremost scientists in the field of radiation protection and health.The researchers warned that Martin Röösli, the man who chairs the BERENIS committee, a committee responsible for providing the Swiss government with advice on radiation protection guidelines, should be scrutinized for impropriety –or to put it more bluntly –for scientific fraud.About time, was my initial reaction. Then, I began to ponder: Is Martin Röösli an outright fraudster? Or are his mis-characterisations of the science the result of the application of unreasonable scientific criteria in his search for truth? It seemed to be an interesting topic worthy of reflection.Either way, the consequences are substantial, not just for Switzerland, but also for the Nordic countries and Japan, as Röösli is a member of radiation protection committees of those countries as well. These committees establish what is to be considered “accepted science” –and thereby also establish the misconceptions on which the radiation protection and health care agencies, as well as politicians, act.

    In February 2020 US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published Report analyzing studies examining the possible causal link between RF-EMF and cancer.The anti-5G activists in their reading of the FDA Report have narrowly focused on Report’s dismissal of the carcinogenicity evidence/claim by the FDA and they demand withdrawal of the FDA Report as biased and scientifically flawed. This might be a mistake, like ‘throwing out baby with a bath water’, because FDA Report, when read carefully, contradicts some of the opinions of ICNIRP that are the pillars of the ICNIRP’s claim of RF-EMF safety…SNIP
