APPEAL TO U.S. SUPREME COURT BEING PREPARED

In the fall of 2018 the City of Santa Fe, New Mexico awarded franchises to five telecom-munications companies for the purpose of placing both fiber-optic cables and 5G antennas in the streets and on the sidewalks of our fair city.

Immediately the Santa Fe Alliance for Public Health and Safety, which has been working against wireless technology since 2005, hired an attorney and filed a lawsuit against our city, our state, and the United States of America.

Today, two years and eight months later, there are still no 5G antennas on the sidewalks of our city. Everyone — the Alliance, the government defendants, the citizens of Santa Fe, those that are watching around the world, and the telecommunications companies that hold the franchises — are waiting to see whether our lawsuit will succeed.

Other organizations are also in court trying to stop 5G. Both the Environmental Health Trust and Children’s Health Defense are doing excellent work and have sued the FCC over its recent orders facilitating the rollout of antennas. But regardless of the outcome of those lawsuits, the fundamental problem will remain, and 5G antennas will continue to be built, as long as the federal law that the FCC administers remains in place. That law is the Telecommunications Act of 1996, and the provision that has been strangling all opposition to cell towers for 25 years is Section 704 of that law.

Section 704 prohibits states and local governments from regulating cell towers on the basis of the environmental effects of radio-frequency radiation, and for 25 years, “environmental effects” has been interpreted by the courts to mean “health effects.” Since 1996, no city in the US has been permitted to protect the public from the radiation, or even to hear testimony about the health effects of cell towers. No lawsuit for injuries or losses caused by cell towers has been permitted to go to trial in any court. A large class of environmental refugees continues to grow as thousands lose their health, their homes and their businesses every day.

Ours is the first organization to sue a city to stop 5G antennas from being built on its sidewalks. Ours is the first lawsuit ever filed that challenges the notion that “environmental effects” means “health effects.” And ours is the only lawsuit that is challenging the constitutionality of Section 704 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996. We are suing to force our city and our state to protect our health, and we are asking the courts to declare that Section 704 is unconstitutional and invalid because it deprives people of life, liberty and property without due process of law.

On May 27, 2021, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver decided against us, making our case ripe for appeal to the United States Supreme Court. We have retained two law firms, one on the east coast and one on the west, to draft the petition for certiorari and argue the case if the Supreme Court agrees to hear it. Both law firms have experience in constitutional and environmental law. We will also be soliciting amicus curiae (friend of the court) briefs from organizations and governments. Our petition for certiorari must be filed in the Supreme Court on or before October 25, 2021.

Our complaint against the City of Santa Fe, the New Mexico Attorney General, and the United States, originally filed in the district court in 2018, is here:

VICTORY, AT LEAST FOR NOW, IN ITALY 


In my last newsletter, I reported that there had been an 18-day hunger strike against 5G in Italy and that the Alleanza Italiana Stop 5G had delivered 340,000 signatures to the Minister of Health asking for a moratorium on 5G and the Internet of Things. The exposure limit in Italy for radio-frequency radiation is 6 V/m, which is ten times lower than in most of the western world, and 5G cannot be deployed where the exposure limit is that low. Therefore the Italian Parliament was proposing amendments to the National Recovery and Resilience Plan that would have raised the exposure limit to 61 V/m, which would be in line with most of the rest of Europe.

On July 29, 2021, the Alleanza announced that their petition has been successful. On July 13, during the week of protests, Parliament rejected the amendments and voted, at least for the present, to keep the exposure limit at 6 V/m. SMART FOX


In Lakeville, Minnesota is the Save a Fox rescue facility that rescues foxes from the local fur farm and elsewhere and prepares them for adoption. When a mother fox at the fur farm rejects one of her babies, or when one of their foxes becomes disabled or sick, they give it to Save a Fox.

One day last year, Mikayla Raines, the founder of Save a Fox, was preparing to do a yoga exercise and she set her smartphone on the ground to film her while she did her yoga. Along came one of her foxes, grabbed the phone, ran a long distance away, and dug a hole in order to bury it. This is a picture of the fox: 

And this is the video that was captured by Mikayla’s smartphone while it was being carried in Dixie’s mouth:

Trio: Bill Gates and the Population Control Grid + Scott Keisler: Bill Gates is Setting the Stage for the Mark of the Beast + Vaccine Safety – Fauci and Gates Explain

Bill Gates and the Population Control Grid

TRANSCRIPT AND SOURCES: https://www.corbettreport.com/gates
The takeover of public health that we have documented in How Bill Gates Monopolized Global Health and the remarkably brazen push to vaccinate everyone on the planet that we have documented in Bill Gates’ Plan to Vaccinate the World was not, at base, about money. The unimaginable wealth that Gates has accrued is now being used to purchase something much more useful: control. Control not just of the global health bodies that can coordinate a worldwide vaccination program, or the governments that will mandate such an unprecedented campaign, but control over the global population itself.

Bill Gates Laying Foundation for Mark of the Beast

Bill Gates is Setting the Stage for the Mark of the Beast
Scott Keisler – April 20, 2020

In 2016 a powerful confab of globalists converged at the UN headquarters in New York, New York to launch a global initiative called ID2020. The vision of ID2020 is ostensibly to advocate “for ethical, privacy-protecting approaches to digital ID”(1) and to provide IDs for “over 1 billion people worldwide (who) do not have access to any form of identification.”(2)

The Rockefeller Foundation provided the seed money for the ambitious ID project and continues to be an ongoing supporter of ID2020’s work.(3) The project’s other founding members include Gavi The Vaccine Alliance, Microsoft, Accenture and IDEO.org.(4) The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation gave $750 million to set up the aforementioned Gavi in 1999 and “the (Gates) Foundation is a key Gavi partner in vaccine market shaping.”(5) Thus between Microsoft and The Gates Foundation ID2020 has been operating under the guiding hand of Bill Gates from the onset.

ID2020 seeks “to leverage immunization as an opportunity to establish digital identity”(6) and to “provide a unique digital identity to everyone on the planet.”(7) Of course all this will be done, we are told, with the utmost respect for personal privacy, security and choice.(8) After all, “Participation in the modern economy, the ability to buy and sell, attain employment, healthcare, social services and more are virtually impossible without a digital identity.”(9)(emphasis added)

So basically Bill Gates has adopted as his personal mission the task of enrolling every single person on the planet in a global ID database. And vaccines are the vehicle through which this will be accomplished.

Last week Robert F. Kenned, Jr. penned a scathing article exposing Bill Gates for what he really is,

“Vaccines, for Bill Gates, are a strategic philanthropy that feed his many vaccine-related businesses (including Microsoft’s ambition to control a global vaccination ID enterprise) and give him dictatorial control of global health policy.”(10)

Kennedy continues,

“In 2010, when Gates committed $10 billion to the WHO, he said ‘We must make this the decade of vaccines.'”(11)

And,

“In addition to using his philanthropy to control WHO, UNICEF, GAVI, and PATH, Gates funds a private pharmaceutical company that manufactures vaccines and is donating $50 million to 12 pharmaceutical companies to speed up development of a coronavirus vaccine.”(12)

If you aren’t familiar with the atrocities that have been committed around the globe by Bill Gates in the name of vaccination and population control Kennedy gives a concise overview here.

Some readers may not know that Bill Gates’ father was on the Board of Planned Parenthood(13), the abortion provider that was founded on racist principles and eugenics. For the Gateses culling the earth of useless eaters is a generational enterprise. (See Gates endorsing Death Panels here.)

On March 19, 2020 Bill Gates took to Reddit to propose a digital certificate to identify those who have received the Covid19 vaccination.(14) Vaccination recipients, according to Gates, can be given a “quantum dot tattoo”(15), which is “a bit of dye that is invisible to the naked eye” but that can be seen with infrared light.(16) The tattoo would store a digital file that could be read with a scanner or a smartphone.(17) This quantum dot tattoo was developed at MIT and funded by…guess who?(18)

It doesn’t take too much imagination to see the convergence of a mandatory vaccination and a mandatory global digital ID here(19) – a present from the Globalists that would eventually be required to buy and sell in the Brave New post Covid19 World.(19)

On March 26, 2020 Microsoft filed Patent WO/2020/060606 (note that last number) which uses ‘body activity’ to authorize and verify cryptocurrency transactions.(20) Examples of body activity include “brain wave, pulse rate or body heat radiation”.(21)

Cryptocurrency is block-chain oriented and could very well serve as the currency in the coming global cashless society.

It’s interesting that the name of the initiative in view is ID2020. Not ID2019, ID2021 or ID2025. It is also curious that Dr. Anthony Fauci of The White House’s Coronavirus Task Force said in 2017, almost prophetically, “There is no question that there will be a challenge to the coming administration in the arena of infectious diseases.”(22)

It’s almost as if this was all planned some time ago.

Fauci “serves as a member of the Leadership Council for the Global Vaccine Action Plan developed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Health Organization, UNICEP and Fauci’s own NIAID — the plan that calls for a ‘Decade of Vaccines’ to spread far and wide, all around the globe.”(23) Bill Gates “has a multi-million dollar relationship with Dr. Fauci.”(24) Suffice it to say the connections between Gates and Fauci are extensive (see here). And here is Dr. Fauci very clearly giving the Masonic Hidden Hand gesture at a recent White House press conference for the whole world to see.

 

Was Fauci making an announcement to ‘enlightened’ initiates around the world?

Bill Gates with Dr. Anthony Fauci

“Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.”

“This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.”  -Revelation 13:16-18

I’m not saying this is the Mark of the Beast, but the groundwork and infrastructure are definitely being laid.

My response to the person who sent me the above article link:

2:00 AM

I don’t understand why this man is still walking the Earth.. he is such a danger to Humanity.

 

Can’t someone put him out of our misery? Of course that’s what they think of you know who. Geeze, why can’t they just let us live our lives without all this Scheming?

The only way to beat their fear agenda is to not go into fear, and it’s really hard, even for those of us that work at it. I mean, the average person doesn’t have the skill set to transcend fear. These people are vampires living off that energy.

Well, I think a lot more Meditation is in order for the rest of us. We’ve got our work cut out for us.

–They only want to hide what is going on in the world they don’t care who will die or what happens to the world, you are being manipulated,Open your eyes to the Truth please,
–We are going to go through this together, we are going to get stronger, you need to understand those who push for the world being closed and create distraction, they want to divide us, make us scared and make us obey, wake up, we need to come back to normal and back to reality.
–The best way we can help each other is to make the economy stronger and take care of each other, We have to head back to functioning so we don’t head into depression.

Science Confirms That the Vagus Nerve Is Key to Well-being by Markham Heid | The Nuance / MEDIUM

The mysterious nerve network that quiets pain and stress — and may defeat disease

Dec 19, 2019 · 5 min read
Illustration: Kieran Blakey

Take a deep breath. Hug a friend. Reach for the ceiling and stretch your limbs. Each of these simple acts bestows a sense of calm and comfort. And each works its soothing magic in part by activating a complicated system of nerves that connects the brain to the heart, the gut, the immune system, and many of the organs. That system is known collectively as the vagus nerve.

The vagus nerve is one of the twelve cranial nerves, which sprawl out from the brain and into the body like an intricate network of roots. These nerve networks act as lines of communication between the brain and the body’s many systems and organs. Some of the cranial nerves interpret sensory information collected by the skin, eyes, or tongue. Others control muscles or communicate with glands.

The vagus nerve, also called the “10th cranial nerve,” is the longest, largest, and most complex of the cranial nerves, and in some ways it’s also the least understood. Experts have linked its activity to symptom changes in people with migraine headaches, inflammatory bowel disease, depression, epilepsy, arthritis, and many other common ailments. The more science learns about the vagus nerve, the more it seems like a better understanding of its function could unlock new doors to treating all manner of human suffering.

Vagus is Latin for “wandering,” which is apt when one considers all the different parts of the body the vagus nerve reaches. “It seems like every year somebody finds a new organ or system that it talks with,” says Tiffany Field, PhD, director of the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami School of Medicine.

“There’s a massive bioelectrical and biochemical series of events that the vagus nerve is responsible for, and all that is almost impossible to map.”

Field says that branches of the vagus nerve are connected to the face and voice. “We know that depressed people have low vagal activity, and this is associated with less intonation and less-active facial expressions,” she explains. A separate branch of the vagus nerve runs down to the gastrointestinal tract. Here, low vagal activity is associated with slowed gastric motility, which interferes with proper digestion, she says.

Still other branches of the vagus nerve are connected to the heart, the lungs, and the immune system. The vagus nerve’s activation or deactivation is tied to the ebb or flow of hormones such as cortisol and the digestive hormone ghrelin, the amount of inflammation the immune system produces, and many other internal processes that shape human health and experience. “There’s a massive bioelectrical and biochemical series of events that the vagus nerve is responsible for, and all that is almost impossible to map,” Field says.

How could one nerve system control so much? While some aspects of vagal activity are inscrutable, it’s clear that the nerve is the governor of the parasympathetic nervous system, which helps control the body’s relaxation responses. In simple terms, heightened vagal activity counteracts the stress response, which involves the sympathetic nervous system. “The sympathetic nervous system is fight or flight, while the parasympathetic nervous system is more chill out,” says Stephen Silberstein, MD, a professor of neurology and director of the Headache Center at Philadelphia’s Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals.

Silberstein co-wrote a comprehensive 2016 review of the research on the vagus nerve. He says that heightened vagal activity slows heart rate and also switches off inflammation, in part by triggering the release of immune system calming chemicals. There’s also evidence that activating the vagus nerve through electronic stimulation can produce a range of health benefits. “Depending on the frequency of the stimulation, we know it can turn off an asthma attack or an epileptic seizure,” Silberstein says. “It can turn off a migraine or cluster headache, and it can decrease the perception of acid reflux.”

Pick almost any common medical condition that’s made worse by stress or inflammation — everything from arthritis to inflammatory bowel disease — and there’s research showing that vagus nerve stimulation can help treat it or relieve its symptoms.

In the past, this stimulation required a surgical implant in the chest that transmits electrical pulses directly into the vagus nerve. But some newer, noninvasive devices — including one that has FDA approval for the treatment of migraine and cluster headaches — are capable of stimulating the vagus nerve when pressed against the skin of the neck. Silberstein says doctors are exploring the use of vagus nerve stimulation for a wide range of diseases and disorders, including afflictions of the mind.

“More and more, we’re learning how critical vagal activity is to attention and mood,” says Field. Already, there’s evidence that stimulating the vagus nerve may improve working memory or help people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. And since the early 2000s, the FDA has approved vagus nerve stimulation for the treatment of some forms of depression.

While electronic stimulation holds promise — and, in some cases, is already providing relief — for people with a range of ailments, Field says there are plenty of ways to stimulate vagal activity without a device or implant. “We know that massage and yoga promote parasympathetic nervous system activity, which is vagal activity,” she says.

Her research has shown that these and many related activities increase vagal activity via pressure receptors buried beneath the surface of the skin — receptors located throughout the body, and ones that only firm pressure or a deep stretch can reach. She points out that light touching or stroking is arousing, while a bear hug or powerful handshake are inherently soothing. “A strong hug or a handshake promote parasympathetic activity,” she says.

Silberstein says that almost anything people find relaxing — meditation, deep breathing — is also associated with heightened vagal activity and parasympathetic nervous system activity. “We did studies in the past showing that patients with migraine have impaired vagal activity,” he says. “We tried to fix that by doing yoga or deep-breathing meditation, and we found a lot of those things enabled us to activate the vagal nerve.” On the other hand, stress and anxiety are associated with depressed vagal activity, which may help to explain why these conditions are linked with an increased risk for other maladies.

There’s still a lot about the vagus nerve science doesn’t understand. But as doctors uncover more of its secrets, these discoveries are revealing new and more effective ways to relieve pain, inflammation, sadness, and disease.

Scientific American Warns: 5G Is Unsafe

Published:

According to the telecom industry, 5G, the “5th Generation” wireless network, is required to give people the wireless freedom they crave and need. Described by HP as “blazingly fast,” 5G, which is 70 times faster than its predecessor, 4G, “will replace cable internet for good,” allowing you to download a two-hour high-definition movie in three seconds flat.1
5G is also being touted as necessary to enable the development and proliferation of self-driving cars and other future technologies. However, as noted in a May 2019 Forbes article,2 robocar designers are not, in fact, relying on 5G for their development, and the cars themselves do not actually need that kind of bandwidth to perform the required functions.
While “blazingly fast” 5G might sound attractive to many who have grown up in the internet era, there are significant health and environmental concerns relating to 5G radiation that are not being properly addressed, which may have profound implications both in the short and long term.


If increased internet speed and reliability are the end goal, then fiber optic connections would be a far better (and safer) way forward. Indeed, we need more wired connections and fewer wireless ones as it is. With 5G, microwave radiation exposures will so massively increase, there’s no doubt in my mind that mankind will eventually end up regretting its shortsightedness.

Remember that no one has problems with the faster speeds of 5G, no one. What any serious student of health has concerns with is that the data are being distributed wirelessly, when in most cases the data could be distributed easier and less expensively over fiber optic cables.

No Safety Studies Have Been Done


Unlike the 4G technology currently in use, which relies on 90-foot cell towers with about a dozen antenna ports on each, the 5G system uses “small cell” facilities or bases, each with about 100 antenna ports.3
These cell bases will be mounted to already existing infrastructure such as utility poles. Ultimately, many if not most homeowners can expect to end up with a 5G cell base mounted right outside or very near their home.
As noted by a Federal Communications Commission representative during a February 6, 2019, senate commerce hearing (above), no 5G safety studies have been conducted or funded by the agency or the telecom industry, and none is planned.4,5
In short, there’s no telling exactly what might happen to our ecology and the people being exposed to this novel wireless technology 24/7, once it’s deployed. As noted by Dr. Cindy Russell,6 executive director of Physicians for Safe Technology, in her August 2018 paper in the journal Environmental Research:7


“Like other common toxic exposures, the effects of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RF EMR) will be problematic if not impossible to sort out epidemiologically as there no longer remains an unexposed control group. 


This is especially important considering these effects are likely magnified by synergistic toxic exposures and other common health risk behaviors. Effects can also be non-linear. 


Because this is the first generation to have cradle-to-grave life span exposure to this level of man-made microwave (RF EMR) radiofrequencies, it will be years or decades before the true health consequences are known. Precaution in the roll out of this new technology is strongly indicated.”

There’s No Safe Way To Implement 5G

Similarly, in an article8 on the Environmental Health Trust’s website, Ronald Powell, Ph.D., a retired Harvard scientist of applied physics, notes “there is NO SAFE WAY to implement 5G in our communities; rather, there are only ‘bad ways’ and ‘worse ways,’” and rather than argue about who should have control over its deployment, we should focus on preventing its employment altogether.
Indeed, mounting research9,10 suggest the proliferation of 5G for the sake of faster wireless internet could be a public health disaster, so if 5G does end up “replacing cable internet for good,” humanity may be in for a devastating shock in coming decades, if not sooner.
While it may take years to fully ascertain the full effects of 5G, there are early warning signs. People have reported mass die-offs of bees around 5G towers in California,11 for example, and residents in Gateshead in the U.K. started reported insomnia, chronic nosebleeds and stillbirths after the installation of streetlamps that emit 5G radiation in 2016.12

‘No Reason To Believe 5G Is Safe,’ Scientific American Says

In an October 17, 2019, article,13 Scientific American warns “We have no reason to believe 5G is safe,” and that “contrary to what some people say, there could be health risks.” The article, written by Joel M. Moskowitz, Ph.D., director for the Center for Family and Community Health in the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley, notes:14


“The telecommunications industry and their experts have accused many scientists who have researched the effects of cell phone radiation of ‘fear mongering’ over the advent of wireless technology’s 5G. 


Since much of our research is publicly-funded, we believe it is our ethical responsibility to inform the public about what the peer-reviewed scientific literature tells us about the health risks from wireless radiation.”

Moskowitz points out that the FCC has recently announced15 its intention to reaffirm and maintain current radio frequency radiation (RFR) exposure limits, which were originally adopted in the late 1990s. However, there are significant problems with this.
Current RFR limits are based on studies from the 1980s looking at the behavioral effects of microwave radiation on rats, “and were designed to protect us from short-term heating risks due to RFR exposure,” Moskowitz writes.16
These limits are already outdated for our current levels of exposure, so they’re surely bound to be completely inadequate for 5G. Since the 1980s, more than 500 studies17 have identified harmful health or biological effects at RFR intensities far below those needed to produce heating, yet the FCC is ignoring these clearly established facts. As noted by Moskowitz:18


“The FCC’s RFR exposure limits regulate the intensity of exposure, taking into account the frequency of the carrier waves, but ignore the signaling properties of the RFR. Along with the patterning and duration of exposures, certain characteristics of the signal (e.g., pulsing, polarization) increase the biologic and health impacts of the exposure. 


New exposure limits are needed which account for these differential effects. Moreover, these limits should be based on a biological effect, not a change in a laboratory rat’s behavior.”

What Science Says About 5G

A 2-page fact sheet19 on 5G can be downloaded from the Environmental Health Trust’s website. There, you can also access a long list of published scientific studies showing cause for concern.20 Remember, 5G will result in an exponential increase in RFR exposure, and there are already thousands of studies demonstrating biological effects from low-intensity electromagnetic fields (EMFs).
More than 1,800 studies summarized in the BioInitiative Report21 (2007 and 2012) show immune system effects, neurological effects, cognitive effects and much more. For example, cumulative daily EMF exposure from cellphones and Wi-Fi is associated with cancer,22,23 altered brain development in children and reproductive damage in both sexes.
Prenatal exposure to magnetic fields can nearly triple a pregnant woman’s risk of miscarriage.24 Several other studies have come to similar conclusions.25,26,27,28,29 In men, studies show EMF radiation from cellphones and laptops reduces sperm motility and viability,30,31 and increases sperm DNA fragmentation.32
In 2011, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified cellphones as a Group 2B “possible carcinogen” based on the available evidence,33 and two recent studies (one by the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP)34 and one by the Ramazzini Institute in Italy35) have reconfirmed its carcinogenic potential.
The NTP study found heart tumors (malignant schwannomas) in male rats, “similar to acoustic neuromas, a benign tumor in people involving the nerve that connects the ear to the brain, which some studies have linked to cellphone use.”
Many studies have been published since 2011, and RFR is currently listed36 as one of the “high priority” items to be reassessed by the IARC within the next five years. Based on the expanded evidence base, the IARC could potentially end up upgrading the carcinogenic classification of RFR.

What Makes 5G Different?

;
Considering how many are already struggling with electromagnetic hypersensitivity, saturating cities and suburban areas with 5G will undoubtedly add many more to this once-rare affliction, and could easily make life unbearable for those who are already struggling at current exposure levels.
A significant problem with 5G technology is that it relies primarily on the bandwidth of the millimeter wave or MMW, which operates between 30 gigahertz (GHz) and 300GHz.37 The MMW is known to penetrate 1 to 2 millimeters of human tissue38,39 and has been linked to a number of potential health problems, including:40,41,42,43

  • Pain44 (MMW is actually what’s used in crowd control weapons by the U.S. Department of Defense, as it has the ability to cause a severe burning sensation45)
  • Suppressed immune function46
  • Impacted heart rate variability — an indicator of stress — in rats47,48 and heart rate changes (arrhythmias) in frogs49
  • Cancer50
  • Cellular stress and increase in harmful free radicals51
  • Genetic damage52
  • Reproductive problems53,54,55
  • Neurological disorders56
  • Eye problems such as lens opacity in rats (which is linked to the production of cataracts57) and eye damage in rabbits58,59
  • Depressed growth and increased antibiotic resistance in bacteria60

We’re Flying Blind, But Warning Signs Abound

Again, 5G is so new that we simply do not have the same volume of research demonstrating its specific health effects as we do for earlier generations of RF radiation. The fact that the issues above have already been identified should be a giant red flag.
Certainly, there’s absolutely nothing to suggest that 5G is going to produce LESS harm than current technologies in use, and there are thousands of studies showing harmful effects from that. What’s more, 5G will be used in addition to our current technologies; it’s not replacing them all. As noted by Moskowitz:61


“Since 5G is a new technology, there is no research on health effects, so we are ‘flying blind’ to quote a U.S. senator. However, we have considerable evidence about the harmful effects of 2G and 3G. Little is known the effects of exposure to 4G, a 10-year-old technology, because governments have been remiss in funding this research …


5G will … accompany 4G for the near future and possibly over the long term. If there are synergistic effects from simultaneous exposures to multiple types of RFR, our overall risk of harm from RFR may increase substantially. 


Cancer is not the only risk as there is considerable evidence that RFR causes neurological disorders and reproductive harm, likely due to oxidative stress.”

Indeed, research62 by Martin Pall, Ph.D., details how excessive oxidative stress triggered by microwave exposure from wireless technologies can lead to reproductive harm and neurological disorders such as anxiety, depression, autism and Alzheimer’s.
You can learn more about the exact mechanisms in my 2017 interview with Pall, featured in “The Harmful Effects of EMFs Explained.” Pall is also interviewed by Sharyl Attkisson in the Full Measure special, “5G Whiz,”63 above, in which he points out that the health effects of 5G are going to be far more significant than what we’re already seeing with 2G through 4G.
If you think we’re not seeing health effects from these previous generations of tech, think again. Do you feel anxious? Have trouble sleeping? Do you feel tired “all the time”? Do you have frequent headaches? Have trouble concentrating?
All of these are effects of EMF exposure and telltale signs indicating that you’re being affected. Matters will only get worse from there, unless you take steps to lower your exposure.

Many Experts Have Expressed Concern

Over the years, many hundreds of experts have expressed concern about where we are going, technologically. Since 2004, the International Association of Firefighters have officially opposed cell towers on fire stations, as research showed firefighters suffered neurological damage from them, including memory problems, intermittent confusion and feelings of weakness.64
In 2015, more than 230 scientists in 41 countries engaged in the study of biological and health effects of nonionizing EMFs signed an international appeal65 to the United Nations, calling for protection from nonionizing EMF exposure due to evidence of health effects even at low levels.
In a 2016 letter to the FCC, Dr. Yael Stein of the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem, Israel, who has studied 5G MMW technology and its interaction with the human body, pointed out that:66


“The use of sub-terahertz (millimeter wave) communications technology (cellphones, Wi-Fi, antennas) could cause humans to percept physical pain via nociceptors.


Potentially, if G5 Wi-Fi is spread in the public domain we may expect more of the health effects currently seen with RF/ microwave frequencies including many more cases of hypersensitivity (EHS), as well as many new complaints of physical pain and a yet unknown variety of neurologic disturbances.”

Stein also warned that “It will be possible to show a causal relationship between 5G technology and these specific health effects,” and that “affected individuals may be eligible for compensation.” For these reasons, Stein urged the FCC and U.S. Senate committees to vote against 5G.
A year later, in 2017, more than 180 doctors and scientists from 35 countries signed a petition67 to enact a moratorium on the rollout of 5G due to the potential risks to wildlife and human health. Despite all of that, U.S. leaders are forging ahead with 5G without a second thought to what it might do to the population and the environment.

Our Children Are At Significant Risk

The American Academy of Pediatrics68,69,70 has also been calling for federal action to protect children from EMF exposures, citing research showing that living near mobile phone base stations is associated with an increased risk for headaches, memory problems, dizziness, depression and sleep disturbances.
Indeed, preliminary results from the largest long-term study71,72,73 of brain development and youth health in the U.S. — the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study74 — reveals the brains of the most prolific users of smartphones, tablets and video games look different compared to those who use electronic devices less frequently.
Children who use electronic devices for seven hours or more each day have premature thinning of the brain cortex, the outer brain layer that processes information from the five physical senses (taste, touch, sight, smell and sound).
As little as two hours of screen time per day may impact cognition, resulting in lower scores on thinking and language tests. 5G installations will only magnify these and other health risks.
For a list of potential health effects associated with EMF exposure, see “Electromagnetic Radiation Specialist Reveals the Hidden Dangers of Electric Fields,” which features my interview with Oram Miller.

5G Threatens Weather Prediction

Interestingly, aside from potential health ramifications, a global 5G network will also threaten our ability to predict weather which, in addition to putting civilians at risk will also jeopardize the Navy.75
According to a recent paper76 in the journal Nature, widespread 5G coverage will prevent satellites from detecting changes in water vapor, which is how meteorologists predict weather changes and storms.
In a recent letter to the FCC, democratic Democratic Sens. Ron Wyden, Ore., and Maria Cantwell, Wash., urge the agency to rein in the expansion of wireless communications in the 24 GHz band for this reason.77

Protect Yourself And Your Family From Excessive EMF

There’s no doubt in my mind that microwave radiation from wireless technologies is a significant health hazard that needs to be addressed if you’re concerned about your health. Unfortunately, the rollout of 5G will make remedial action all the more difficult, which is why we all need to get involved and do what we can to prevent it in the first place.
If you’re a Georgia resident, you can sign Change.org’s “Stop 5G” petitionBath and North East Somerset also have a “Stop 5G” petition going on. Other petitions can be found now and then by searching online.
Apart from making your sentiments known to lawmakers, here are several suggestions that will help reduce your EMF exposure and help mitigate damage from unavoidable exposures. For even more do’s and don’ts, see the infographics by the Environmental Health Trust below.

  • Identify major sources of EMF, such as your cellphone, cordless phones, Wi-Fi routers, Bluetooth headsets and other Bluetooth-equipped items, wireless mice, keyboards, smart thermostats, baby monitors, smart meters and the microwave in your kitchen. Ideally, address each source and determine how you can best limit their use.

    Barring a life-threatening emergency, children should not use a cellphone, or a wireless device of any type. Children are far more vulnerable to cellphone radiation than adults due to having thinner skull bones, and developing immune systems and brains.

    Research78 also demonstrates that infants under the age of 1 do not effectively learn language from videos, and do not transfer what they learn from the iPad to the real world, so it’s a mistake to think electronic devices provide valuable educational experiences.

  • Connect your desktop computer to the internet via a wired Ethernet connection and be sure to put your desktop in airplane mode. Also avoid wireless keyboards, trackballs, mice, game systems, printers and portable house phones. Opt for the wired versions.
  • If you must use Wi-Fi, shut it off when not in use, especially at night when you are sleeping. Ideally, work toward hardwiring your house so you can eliminate Wi-Fi altogether. If you have a notebook without any Ethernet ports, a USB Ethernet adapter will allow you to connect to the internet with a wired connection.
  • Avoid using wireless chargers for your cellphone, as they too will increase EMFs throughout your home. Wireless charging is also far less energy efficient than using a dongle attached to a power plug, as it draws continuous power (and emits EMF) whether you’re using it or not.

    According to Venkat Srinivasan, director of Argonne Collaborative Center for Energy Storage Science, keeping your cellphone or tablet fully charged at all times will also reduce the life of the battery, which will necessitate the purchase of a brand-new phone.79

    As a lithium ion battery charges and discharges, ions pass between a positive electrode and a negative electrode. The higher the battery is charged the faster the ions degrade, so it’s better to cycle between 45 percent and 55 percent.

  • Shut off the electricity to your bedroom at night. This typically works to reduce electrical fields from the wires in your wall unless there is an adjoining room next to your bedroom. If that is the case you will need to use a meter to determine if you also need to turn off power in the adjacent room.
  • Use a battery-powered alarm clock, ideally one without any light. I use a talking clock for the visually impaired.80
  • If you still use a microwave oven, consider replacing it with a steam convection oven, which will heat your food as quickly and far more safely.
  • Avoid using “smart” appliances and thermostats that depend on wireless signaling. This would include all new “smart” TVs. They are called smart because they emit a Wi-Fi signal and, unlike your computer, you cannot shut the Wi-Fi signal off. Consider using a large computer monitor as your TV instead, as they don’t emit Wi-Fi.
  • Refuse a smart meter on your home as long as you can, or add a shield to an existing smart meter, some of which have been shown to reduce radiation by 98 to 99 percent.81
  • Consider moving your baby’s bed into your room instead of using a wireless baby monitor. Alternatively, use a hard-wired monitor.
  • Replace CFL bulbs with incandescent bulbs. Ideally remove all fluorescent lights from your house. Not only do they emit unhealthy light, but more importantly, they will actually transfer current to your body just being close to the bulbs.
  • Avoid carrying your cellphone on your body unless in airplane mode and never sleep with it in your bedroom unless it is in airplane mode. Even in airplane mode it can emit signals, which is why I put my phone in a Faraday bag.82
  • When using your cellphone, use the speaker phone and hold the phone at least 3 feet away from you. Seek to radically decrease your time on the cellphone. Instead, use VoIP software phones that you can use while connected to the internet via a wired connection.
  • Avoid using your cellphone and other electronic devices at least an hour (preferably several) before bed, as the blue light from the screen and EMFs both inhibit melatonin production.83,84 If you must use your phone make sure you have the blue light filters activated and have it in dark mode. Research clearly shows that heavy computer and cellphone users are more prone to insomnia.85 For example, one 2008 study86 revealed that people exposed to radiation from their mobile phones for three hours before bedtime had more trouble falling asleep and staying in a deep sleep.
  • The effects of EMFs are reduced by calcium-channel blockers, so make sure you’re getting enough magnesium. Most people are deficient in magnesium, which will worsen the impact of EMFs. As noted by Pall in a previous interview:

“It is clear that when you’re deficient in magnesium, you get excessive activity of the VGCCs. You also get excessive calcium influx through the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor, caused by magnesium deficiency, which is also problematic, so it’s important to allay that deficiency.” 

  • Pall has also published a paper87 suggesting that raising your level of Nrf2 may help ameliorate EMF damage. One simple way to activate Nrf2 is to consume Nrf2-boosting food compounds. One of the best ways to activate the Nrf2 pathway is with molecular hydrogen tablets that can be taken at a dose of two to three tablets dissolved in 12 to 16 ounces of water, once a day.88

    Exercise, calorie restriction (such as intermittent fasting) and activating the nitric oxide signaling pathway (one way of doing that is the Nitric Oxide Dump exercise) will also raise Nrf2.
