    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 potential for conflict of interest can exist whether or not an individual believes that the relationship affects his or her scientific judgment. Financial relationships (such as employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony) are the most easily identifiable conflicts of interest and the most likely to undermine the credibility of the journal, the authors, and of science itself ………..

    New paper on 5G: Towards 5G communication systems: Are there health implications?


    The spread of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) is rising and health effects are still under investigation. RF-EMF promote oxidative stress, a condition involved in cancer onset, in several acute and chronic diseases and in vascular homeostasis. Although some evidences are still controversial, the WHO IARC classified RF-EMF as “possible carcinogenic to humans”, and more recent studies suggested reproductive, metabolic and neurologic effects of RF-EMF, which are also able to alter bacterial antibiotic resistance. In this evolving scenario, although the biological effects of 5G communication systems are very scarcely investigated, an international action plan for the development of 5G networks has started, with a forthcoming increment in devices and density of small cells, and with the future use of millimeter waves (MMW). Preliminary observations showed that MMW increase skin temperature, alter gene expression, promote cellular proliferation and synthesis of proteins linked with oxidative stress, inflammatory and metabolic processes, could generate ocular damages, affect neuro-muscular dynamics…SNIP

    Recommended book: Healthy Home, Healthy Family: Is where you live affecting your health?

    Is your house making you sick?

    In the past 30 years, new cancer diagnoses almost tripled, hospital admissions for life-threatening allergic reactions have increased fourfold, breast cancer has doubled, male sperm count has halved, the age of puberty is declining, dementia has become synonymous with old age, environmental sensitivities are on the rise, and learning and behavioural disorders in children have skyrocketed. Could these conditions be linked to health hazards in our homes? YES!

    Beginning with the Four Dog Defense, Nicole explains the delay tactics employed by the chemical, pharmaceutical and telecommunication industries to keep their products in the marketplace and their links to the setting of regulations and exposure standards. Using the latest research (891 references), she explains how toxicants, allergens like mould, electromagnetic fields and drinking water pollutants in the built environment are associated with almost all chronic illnesses plaguing western countries. She describes why people with environmental sensitivities need to address mould, electromagnetic field and chemical exposures in their home, and the simple steps required to create a healthy, low allergy home. Now in its 3rd edition, this bestselling, hardback and full colour book, is your go-to-guide for environmental-related diseases. SNIP…

    New paper: When theory and observation collide: Can non-ionizing radiation cause cancer?

    The Missing Link
    Why your government isn’t protecting you from Wi–Fi and cell phone radiation when
    research shows this radiation causes cancer.

    The American scientific journal Environmental Pollution reports, in its next issue, that
    government safety guidelines for microwave radiation emitted by mobile phones, Wi-Fi, smart
    meters, and other common wireless devices, are fundamentally flawed and fail to protect the
    public from this possible carcinogen.

    Increasing scientific evidence shows wireless radiation causes cancer and infertility and other
    health effects, but due to a flawed assumption in safety guidelines, governments in the United
    States, Canada, and the UK are allowing their citizens to be overexposed to microwave
    radiation from wireless technology….

    New report on the Trans Pacific Partnership and the implications for Australia

    For months now, the Turnbull Government has flatly refused to conduct an independent analysis of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). So GetUp members chipped in and did it for them – and the findings of our new report, detailing the most controversial part of the deal, are explosive.

    The report, Canary in the Coal Mine, analyses the enormous risks Australia will face from the TPP’s dangerous Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) provisions, that would give new powers to multinationals to sue our government in secret courts.

    Right now, the Senate is holding an inquiry – Australia’s last line of defence against ISDS – and Dr Kyla Tienhaara, who authored the report, has submitted it for their consideration. But many members of the committee will do their best to ignore its finding. That’s where we come in.

    Together we can back her in, flooding the submissions process with community concern about the unacceptable risks detailed in the report. Our Senators will have no choice but to face up to the risks – and recommend that the Senate vote down the TPP.

    New paper: The WHO EMF Project: Legitimating the Imaginary of Global Harmonization of EMF Safety Standards

    NOTE: David Mercer, the author of this paper was my supervisor at Wollongong University for my thesis The Procrustean Approach.This is well worth a read!

    The WHO EMF Project: Legitimating the Imaginary of Global Harmonization of EMF Safety Standards
    Engaging Science, Technology, and Society 2 (2016), 88-105

    Abstract (excerpt)

    An important topic for studies of STS and globalization are the ways “global” institutions create
    and attempt to implement health guidelines and safety standards to address risks associated with
    new technologies. In the following discussion this topic is examined through a case study of the
    activities of the World Health Organization’s Electric and Magnetic Field Project (WHO EMF
    Project). EMF exposures are associated with telecommunications and electrical infrastructure,
    most notably high voltage power-lines, radio and cell towers and the use of mobile telephones.
    The controversy over setting international safety standards and health guidelines has simmered
    for a number of decades. The mainstream “regulatory science” position has been that it is
    unlikely EMF’s constitute a significant health risk and therefore minimal regulatory intervention
    or significant precautionary considerations are required. A small but persistent stream of
    scientific studies nevertheless have continued to raise significant health concerns and have led to
    calls for regulators to build stronger precautionary approaches into EMF standards and
    guidelines. SNIP

    The Swedish No-Risk project (new link on my home page)

    During the mid 1990s while I was doing research for the Australian Democrats Senator Robert Bell I was communicating with researchers from Swedish Union of Clerical and Technical Employees in Industry (SiF). They were investigating a range of health hazards being found in modern IT office-places and were looking for international partnerships with other trade unions who were interested in this issue. Fortunately they sent me a number of English-language SiF publications on their “No-Risk in the IT environment” project which are now available on my website.


    During the 1990’s the Swedish Union of Clerical and Technical Employees in Industry (SiF) instigated research into reports of ill-health from workers in the modern information technology (IT) workplace. The research team at SiF were concerned that the modern IT workplace may be creating new and serious risks to health, as a result SiF initiated the No-Risk project which aimed at addressing possible health hazards in the modern office-place. In 1999 SiF initiated the “Healthy Office project” in partnership with the Luleå University of Technology (LTU). However due to corporate and government concerns that the SiF No-Risk and the Healthy Office projects were a threat to the introduction of new technology, the projects were totally closed down with people sacked and all publications withdrawn from circulation and destroyed. For all intents and purposes the SiF No Risk /Healthy Office projects were as if they never happened – replaced a new trade union focus on “psycho-social” issues. Meaning: If you get sick in the workplace and its not an obvious illness such as the flu, you just might be suffering from a psychosomatic illness.

    EHS paper published in Reviews on Environmental Health

    David O. Carpenter
    Institute for Health and the Environment, University at Albany, 5 University Place, A217, Rensselaer, NY 12144, USA

    Microwave generating equipment first became common during World War 2 with the development of radar. Soviet bloc countries reported that individuals exposed to microwaves frequently developed headaches, fatigue, loss of appetite, sleepiness, difficulty in concentration, poor memory, emotional instability, and labile cardiovascular function, and established stringent exposure standards.
    There is increasing evidence that the “microwave syndrome” or “electro-hypersensitivity” (EHS) is a real disease that is caused by exposure to EMFs, especially those in the microwave range. The reported incidence of the syndrome is increasing along with increasing exposure to EMFs from electricity, WiFi, mobile phones and towers, smart meters and many other wireless devices.

    PEDIATRICS Volume 136, number 6, December 2015

    abstract (conclusions)

    Young children in an urban, low-income, minority community had almost universal exposure to mobile devices, and most had their own device by age 4. The patterns of use suggest early adoption, frequent and independent use, and media multitasking. Studies are urgently needed to update recommendations for families and providers on the use of mobile media by young children.

    Remarkable New RF-Animal Study

    From Louis Slesin, Microwave News:

    The RF–cancer story took a remarkable turn a few days ago. A new animal study challenged many of the assumptions which lie at the heart of claims that RF radiation –whether from cell phones, cell towers or Wi-Fi– are safe.

    The new study, from Germany, a replication of an earlier experiment, also from Germany, found that weak cell phone signals can promote the growth of tumors in mice. It used radiation levels that do not cause heating and are well below current safety standards. Complicating matters even further, lower doses were often found to be more effective tumor promoters than higher levels; in effect, turning the conventional concept of a linear dose-response on its head.

    And for those with the stamina to have stayed tuned to the slow-moving RF–health soap opera, the new paper offers an unexpected surprise.

    New paper: Tumor promotion by exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields below exposure limits for humans

    From Science Direct

    Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications

    Available online 6 March 2015

    Researchers: Prof. Dr. Alexander Lerchla, Melanie Klosea, Karen Grotea,Adalbert F.X. Wilhelmb, Oliver Spathmannc, Thomas Fiedlerc, Joachim Streckertc, Volkert Hansenc, Markus Clemensc


    The vast majority of in vitro and in vivo studies did not find cancerogenic effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF), i.e. emitted by mobile phones and base stations. Previously published results from a pilot study with carcinogen-treated mice, however, suggested tumor-promoting effects of RF-EMF (Tillmann et al., 2010). We have performed a replication study using higher numbers of animals per group and including two additional exposure levels (0 (sham), 0.04, 0.4 and 2 W/kg SAR). We could confirm and extend the originally reported findings. Numbers of tumors of the lungs and livers in exposed animals were significantly higher than in sham-exposed controls. In addition, lymphomas were also found to be significantly elevated by exposure. A clear dose-response effect is absent. We hypothesize that these tumor-promoting effects may be caused by metabolic changes due to exposure. SNIP
