    New Book of interest: Count Down by Dr Shanna Swan and Stacey Colino

    New Book of interest: Count Down, How Our Modern World Is Threatening Sperm Counts, Altering Male and Female Reproductive Development, and Imperiling the Future of the Human Race.
    In the tradition of Silent Spring and The Sixth Extinction, an urgent, meticulously researched, and groundbreaking book about the ways in which chemicals in the modern environment are changing—and endangering—human sexuality and fertility on the grandest scale, from renowned epidemiologist Shanna Swan.

    Review: “An essential book for this moment….There are a lot of surprises here, including that testosterone therapy decreases sperm counts, and that moms’ exposure to common chemicals during pregnancy alters masculinization of the offspring as well as long-term fertility…. I sincerely hope that everyone reads Count Down—the younger the better—so that they’ll have the chance to preserve their fertility as well as that of their children.”
    —Ruthann Rudel, Research Director at Silent Spring Institute and Research Associate at Brown University 

    “Swan solves one of the great mysteries of the moment: why sperm counts and fertility rates are dropping. She zeroes in on chemicals as a chief culprit, but, even more admirably, maps out the entire threat landscape. This book shines an important light on what we need to do to bring back healthy reproduction.”
    —David Michaels, former Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA and author of The Triumph of Doubt: Dark Money and the Science of Deception

    THE MICROWAVE  DELUSION (re-posted due to error in previous post)

    For Immediate Release: 26 January 2021

    THE MICROWAVE DELUSION: Why ‘Smart’ Wireless Means We Are Dying Younger in Poorer Health and Endangering the Wellbeing of Our Children.

    Excerpt from the press release:
    The Microwave Delusion is the story of how one man’s personal experience of the damaging health effects of low-level microwave radiation became part of an international campaign to hold the mobile phone industry to account for its defective safety practices.

    This book charts industry dirty tricks, government indifference and the rise of independent science over industry-controlled studies, leading to campaigns, political action, legal judgements in mainland Europe, North America and Israel and action to protect children in schools: a change of process which many countries are adopting and which British health authorities, politicians and those with a duty of care are the slowest to acknowledge.

    The roll out of 5G worldwide presents the greatest threat yet to public health from low-level microwave radiation generated by a mobile phone industry which places profit above the long-term wellbeing of pregnant women, babies, children and adults at home, school, in public and in the workplace. As one leading independent scientist says: ‘We are taking risks of the sort that no rational society on earth should take.’

    The Microwave Delusion describes how an industry-driven tragedy in the making has come into being on a scale comparable to tobacco and asbestos, how it can be averted, and what we as individuals and a society can do about it….SNIP

    Alzheimer’s The Number One Killer: Prevention and Reversal of Cognitive Decline Paperback – May 14, 2018

    New book on Alzheimer’s Disease by Tenzin Dawa PhD (Author)

    From Amazon:

    There are 5 million Americans with Alzheimer’s disease, 30 million in the world. 99% of 75 million Americans don’t know that they are positive for the allele ApoE4 which is carried by two-thirds of Alzheimer’s patients. — 45 million of young Americans today, about 15% of the population, do not know they are destined to get Alzheimer’s disease during their lifetime, bankrupting Medicare, if no prevention is instituted. Alzheimer’s was a rare disease before the beginning of the modern consumer society and introduction of processed and fast foods, and all these conveniences of transportation and combustion engines and turbines, and, most of all, communication by pulsing microwaves used in mobile phone and TETRA communications impacting our brain cells and tissue, destroying them. We will eventually, perhaps in 30 to 50 years, have killed a sufficient number of our children, youth, grown-ups, particularly in the heavy polluted metropolitan areas of New Delhi, Mumbai, Beijing, Shanghai, Manila, Jakarta, Cairo, London, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, and other metropolises, creating an unmanageable backlog of Alzheimer’s patients, burgeoning cost of medical care which is bankrupting private and socialized health care insurers…SNIP

    2017: US Gov’t Scientists – Health Effects from Interaction of Wireless Radiation and Other Environmental Agents

    The following is a welcome relief to the viewpoint of Rodney Croft from ACEBR (recent message): “We have no reason to think that anyone getting exposed to cell site towers are going to be adversely affected in terms of their health. Large amount of research has failed to find any evidence that anyone has been hurt just because they were exposed to these telecom facilities.”

    Too bad Australia doesn’t have the calibre of scientists like Kostoff and Lau. who do more than just speak ICNIRP’s pro-industry orthodoxy…

    A book was published in 2017, Microwave Effects on DNA and Proteins

    Chapter 4 (pp. 97-158) of that book is about health effects resulting from interaction of wireless radiation exposure with other environmental agents by Kostoff, R.N. and Clifford G.Y. Lau. 2017. “Modified health effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation combined with other agents reported in the biomedical literature.”
    They bring up an important point – that government standards are based on the effect of non-ionizing radiation acting alone. The effects of the radiation in combination with other agents on biological systems would be much more severe than if it was acting alone (p.98) SNIP

    Australia’s NH&MRC accused of bias and misleading the public

    In the below press release from the Australian HomÅ“opathic Association, they make the allegation that the National Health and Medical Research Council (NH&MRC)has misled the public over the effectiveness of homeopathic medicine and has systematic conflicts of interest in its scientific evaluation. Well, if proven, that is nothing new. For example see Professor Martin Brian’s 1986 paper; Bias in awarding research grants, published in British Medical Journal…
    SNIP
    In the above light, perhaps the NH&MRC can be considered more of a “captured agency” firmly binded to government and industry policy, ignoring inconvenient evidence….

    CORPORATE TIES THAT BIND: An Examination of Corporate Manipulation and Vested Interest in Public Health

    This forthcoming book (February 2017) is timely reading as we are now seeing a well-orchestrated tactic by various industry front groups and their “fellow travelers” to create a false scientific consensus in an effort to kill-off controversial health and environmental issues which threaten various industries.

    A Brave New World: The Internet of Things (IoT)

    In Aldous Huxley’s classic 1931 SciFi novel Brave New World he envisions a dystopian society where human life has been almost entirely industrialized — controlled by a few people at the top of a World State. A future where human beings are socially conditioned (or programmed) according to the society’s strict caste system, an antiseptic and dehumanized society.

    And now consider another brave new world as envisioned by Google’s Eric Schmidt(1) and Jared Cohen (2) in The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business

    Science for Sale by David Lewis: recommended reading

    Following a similar vein as the last blog message,”Report from the Science and Wireless 2015 event in Australia” the 2014 book, Science For Sale by David Lewis PhD is relevant reading. The sub title is:

    How the US government uses powerful corporations and leading universities to support government policies, silence top scientists, jeopardize our health, and protect corporate profits.

    However the title would be just as accurate if it alternatively read: How powerful ‘US corporations use the government, etc’- considering the “revolving door” between corporate America and the government where govt. agencies are effectively given over to corporate control in exchange for large election donations. If it was in a 3rd World country it would be condemned as outright corruption. In the USA however, its just accepted as business as usual…

    From the book:

    The government hires scientists to support its policies; industry hires them to support its business; and universities hire them to bring in grants that are handed out to support government policies and industry practices. Organizations dealing with scientific integrity are designed only to weed out those who commit fraud behind the backs of the institutions where they work. The greatest threat of all is the purposeful corruption of the scientific enterprise by the institutions themselves. The science they create is often only an illusion, designed to deceive; and the scientists they destroy to protect that illusion are often our best…

    Review by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.:

    “David Lewis has been a beacon of integrity against the apocalyptical forces of ignorance and greed endeavoring to divert science from the noble pursuit of truth and pervert it into a tool that supports the most destructive policies of industry and government.”

    New book: An Electronic Silent Spring

    From the website, http://www.electronicsilentspring.com/

    An Electronic Silent Spring –

    Society has received profound benefits from electronics. We have developed and marketed electronic technologies [that emit electromagnetic radiation (EMR)] without recognition or regulation of its effects on human health or wildlife.

    Katie Singer’s book, An Electronic Silent Spring, and this website are dedicated to encouraging recognition that EMR can harm people and wildlife;
    to protective solutions for the public health and our ecosystem.

    While they operate, mobile phones, mobile phone chargers, iPads, cellular antennas, Wi-Fi, compact fluorescent lights, transformers and “smart” utility meters emit electromagnetic radiation (EMR) at frequencies and amplitudes that are not found in nature. An Electronic Silent Spring describes how wildlife and peoples’ health are affected.

    RADIATION PROTEOMICS: A new book edited by Dariusz Leszczynski

    A new book from Springer “RADIATION PROTEOMICS” Ed. D. Leszczynski, is scheduled for publication on Feb. 28, 2013.

    Briefly:
    Up to date review of proteomics studies examining radiation effects on cells and tissues
    Included both ionizing and non-ionizing radiation effects
    Review of low-dose ionizing radiation effects
    Review of therapeutic doses of ionizing radiation effects and search for biomarkers of response/damage
    Non-ionizing radiation chapters deal with ELF-EMF, RF-EMF and UV

    Proteomics is widely used in search of biomarkers, pharmacology, clinical research and toxicology. With the help of proteomics large amount of information about the physiology of living cells can be obtained in a single experiment. Combining this information with data from genomics and other high-throughput screening techniques like transcriptomics and metabolomics allows gaining new insights into physiology of life and diseases.
