Health dangers of EMF technology – WiFi, smart phones, smart meters, 5g, etc
Electromagnetic frequency (EMF) microwave technology for example including mobile phones, WiFi, 5g, Smart meters, etc emits electromagnetic frequency radiation that has been shown in thousands of studies to be harmful to human health.
There are thousands of scientific studies and research papers showing the harmful biological effects of electromagnetic and microwave radiation from mobile phones, WiFi, 5G, Smart meters, etc on our health and the environment. The following websites give detailed information and links to many of these studies:
In May 2011, the World Health Organisation and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified mobile phone and wireless radiation as a Class 2B Carcinogenic, the same category as DDT, chloroform and methylmercury.

Fertility rate: ‘Jaw-dropping’ global crash in children being bornThe world is ill-prepared for the global crash in children being born which is set to have a “jaw-dropping” impact on societies, say researchers.Falling fertility rates mean nearly every country could have shrinking populations by the end of the century.And 23 nations – including Spain and Japan – are expected to see their populations halve by 2100.
Siro secures €200m funding to accelerate gigabit FTTB roll-out
Siro (a broadband wholesaler) plans to continue rolling out fibre-to-the-building broadband across Ireland, using €200m of recently secured funding.
Siro announced that it has secured €200m in funding from five banks, which it said represents the largest debt investment dedicated entirely to a fibre-to-the-building (FTTB) broadband roll-out in Ireland.
The funding came from a syndicate of international banks, including Ulster Bank, NatWest, HSBC, BNP Paribas and Royal Bank of Canada. The debt package is a five-year revolving credit facility and was led by NatWest.
Proceeds from the package will go towards Siro’s business plan to connect 450,000 homes and businesses in Ireland to a gigabit fibre broadband service. The company’s roll-out is already live in 45 towns across the country and this new funding will be used to accelerate the programme.

In this research, we show that 5G millimeter waves could be absorbed by dermatologic cells acting like antennas, transferred to other cells and play the main role in producing Coronaviruses in biological cells. DNA is built from charged electrons and atoms and has an inductor-like structure. This structure could be divided into linear, toroid and round inductors. Inductors interact with external electromagnetic waves, move and produce some extra waves within the cells. The shapes of these waves are similar to shapes of hexagonal and pentagonal bases of their DNA source. These waves produce some holes in liquids within the nucleus. To fill these holes, some extra hexagonal and pentagonal bases are produced. These bases could join to each other and form virus-like structures such as Coronavirus. To produce these viruses within a cell, it is necessary that the wavelength of external waves be shorter than the size of the cell. Thus 5G millimeter waves could be good candidates for applying in constructing virus-like structures such as Coronaviruses (COVID-19) within cells.
Keywords: 5G technology; COVID-19; DNA; dermatologic antenna; inductor; millimeter wave.

The cart, called Amazon Dash Cart, will first show up at a new Los Angeles supermarket Amazon is opening later this year. The store will have cashiers, but Amazon said it wanted to give shoppers a way to bypass any lines. In the future, it could be used at Amazon’s Whole Foods grocery chain or other stores, if Amazon sells the technology, but there are no plans for either right now.

BIG TECH: Monopoly mayhem: Corporations win, workers lose
Big corporations have become so dominant that workers and consumers have fewer options and have to accept the wages and prices these giant corporations offer.
Today, just five giant corporations preside over key, high-tech platforms, together comprising more than a quarter of the value of the entire U.S. stock market. Facebook and Google are the first stops for many Americans seeking news. Apple dominates smartphones and laptop computers. Amazon is now the first stop for a third of all American consumers seeking to buy anything.
The monopolies of yesteryear are back with a vengeance.
Thanks to the abandonment of antitrust, we’re now living in a new Gilded Age, as consolidation has inflated corporate profits, suppressed worker pay, supercharged economic inequality, and stifled innovation.
This mega-concentration of American industry has also made the entire economy more fragile – and susceptible to deep downturns. Even before the coronavirus, it was harder for newer firms to gain footholds. The rate at which new businesses formed had already been halved from the pace in 1980. And the coronavirus has exacerbated this trend even more, bringing new business formations to a standstill with no rescue plan in sight.
– High profits of Big Tech have come from wanton invasions of personal privacy, the weaponizing of false information, and disproportionate power that prevents innovative startups from entering the market.
Perhaps the worst consequence of monopolization is that as wealth accumulates at the top, so too does political power.
These massive corporations provide significant campaign contributions; they have platoons of lobbyists and lawyers and directly employ many voters. So items they want included in legislation are inserted; those they don’t want are scrapped.
They get tax cuts, tax loopholes, subsidies, bailouts, and regulatory exemptions. When the government is handing out money to stimulate the economy, these giant corporations are first in line. When they’ve gone so deep into debt to buy back their shares of stock that they might not be able to repay their creditors, what happens? They get bailed out. It’s the same old story.
The financial returns on their political investments are sky-high.
BIG TECH OPINIONS: EXPERTS PREDICT MORE DIGITAL INNOVATION BY 2030 AIMED AT ENHANCING DEMOCRACY
5. Tech causes more problems than it solves
Angela Campbell, a professor of law and co-director of the Institute for Public Representation at Georgetown University, responded, “I think there will be efforts to address the social and civic impacts of technology but they may not be sufficient. In particular, I am concerned about the impact of overuse or over-reliance on technology with respect to children and teens. I am concerned about the safety of children online, not just from predators but from peers (bullying). Overuse may also contribute to physical maladies such as obesity, bad posture, eye problems, ADHD, insufficient sleep and even addiction. While technology can help to educateolder children (not preschoolers who need to interact with humans and objects), it needs to be selected [and] used carefully and should not subject children to commercialism or invade their privacy. My other major concerns are job loss and discrimination. It seems inevitable that many jobs will be eliminated by technology, and while technologies may generate new jobs, I suspect there will be fewer jobs, and those that remain will require certain skills. It will be important, and difficult, to ensure that everyone is able to have employment and to make enough to live at a reasonable level. As competition for jobs increases, I am also worried about how big data allows hidden discrimination in education, health and employment.”
A chair of political science based in the American South commented, “Technology always creates two new problems for every one it solves. At some point, humans’ cognitive and cooperative capacities – largely hard-wired into their brains by millennia of evolution – can’t keep up. Human technology probably overran human coping mechanisms sometime in the later 19th century. The rest is history.”
There is a gap between the rate at which technology develops and the rate at which society develops. We need to take care not to fall into that gap.- LOUISA HEINRICH
Bach Avezdjanov, a program officer with Columbia University’s Global Freedom of Expression project, said, “Technological development – being driven by the Silicon Valley theory of uncontrolled growth – will continue to outpace civic and social innovation. The latter needs to happen in tandem with technological innovation, but instead plays catch-up. This will not change in the future, unless political will to heavily regulate digital tools is introduced – an unlikely occurrence.”
A renowned professor of sociology known for her research into online communications and digital literacies observed, “New groups expose the error of false equivalence and continue to challenge humans to evolve into our pre-frontal cortex. I guess I am optimistic because the downside is pretty terrible to imagine. It’s like E.O. Wilson said: ‘The real problem of humanity is the following: We have paleolithic emotions; medieval institutions; and god-like technology. And it is terrifically dangerous, and it is now approaching a point of crisis overall.’”

CELLPHONES: There IS life beyond the Smartphone natural activist
I’m sitting with a friend at a cafe. She’s got her smartphone on the table between us, and I can tell she isn’t really paying attention to our conversation because of the way she’s twitching. She’s got it on silent mode, but her eyes keep flicking to the phone, then up to mine, and I can tell she’s itching to see who just sent her a message. And I’m thinking, why am I here? Why can’t she just turn the bloody thing off for an hour or so? Why is she behaving like an addict who’s desperate for a fix?
Of course, she is an addict. Most people who own smartphones are. It’s got to be there all the time, on all the time, making them available all the time. Not having it there, not having it on, not being available, makes people feel naked, vulnerable, cut off, antsy. It also makes them very bad company.https://
EMF: https://play.google.com/ InfraSound Detector for your phone (I don’t have)
InfraSound Detector is the App that allows you to detect infrasound (infrasonic) acoustic signals below the user-defined frequency (up to 30 Hz by default). Infrasound propagates hundreds of miles and can penetrate walls, mountains and other obstacles without loss. This detector can be useful in following cases: To find out any suspicious low frequency noise, vibrations, and sounds in building structures. To register a number of hazardous atmospheric phenomena, including aircraft wake vortices, clear air turbulence, severe thunderstorms and tornadoes as well as any seismic events and volcano activities. As a benefit, it allows early detection of tornadoes from hundreds of miles away. To detect underground activity, e.g., tunnel digging. To detect some kind of infrasonic weapons, that cause physical pain without human detection. To check out the quality of bass sounds (low frequency) of your subwoofer speaker system as well as any loudspeakers. Result of detection can be shown on the screen in the foreground mode and also be presented in the notification form and (or) by sound (vibration) in the background mode when the screen of the Android device is turned off. All events can be recorded in the log for later analysis. The lower working frequency is depend on the audio specification of the current Android device and can be reached as low as 4 Hz. For better result, the high quality Android device with internal microphone should be used to determine the infrasound signal, but sensitivity on the lowest frequencies will be worse anyway. Also, you can use a special external infrasound microphone connected to the audio jack (microphone input of the ear plug connector). The idea of the App is based on the fact that any analog system (microphone and amplifier of your Android device in this case) does NOT have ideal characteristics and infrasound signals can be infiltrate through it down to 4 Hz. Features. Completely NO ads. The signal level indication. Vibration indication of the alarm event. Event log is recorded automatically. Signal spectrum and location information can be included in the log. The converter infrasonic signals into audible sounds. So you can hear infrasonic signals. Background mode with notifications. Once this option starts, the App runs quietly in the background and requires no human interaction until the alarm event happens. It continues to run even after the device reboots. Adjustable battery consumption in the background mode. The App is designed to conserve your device battery and allows to select the data update rate. The more update rate time, the less battery it takes. Comprehensive spectrum analysis with different ways to display results: spectrum, waterfall, oscilloscope.

ENVIRONMENT: A BRIEFING MEMORANDUM: What We Know, Can Infer, and Don’t Yet Know about Impacts from Thermal and Non-thermal Non-ionizing Radiation to Birds and Other Wildlife — for Public Release
“Most of the biological-effects studies of RFR that have been conducted since the 1980s were under non-thermal conditions, including the most recent NTP (2016) studies. In studies using isolated cells, the ambient temperature during exposure was generally well controlled. In most animal studies, the RFR intensity used usually did not cause a significant increase in body temperature in the test animals. Most scientists consider non-thermal effects as well established, even though the implications are not fully understood….
At present, given industry and agency intransigence (with the exception of the Interior Department and Department of Commerce both which are now beginning to address non-thermal radiation issues), massive amounts of money being spent to prevent addressing impacts from non-thermal radiation — not unlike the battles over tobacco and smoking — and a lack of significant, dedicated and reliable funding to advance independent field studies and better understand the etiology and consequences of impacts, we are left with few options. Currently, other than to proceed using the precautionary approach and keep emissions as low as reasonably achievable, we are at loggerheads in advancing meaningful guidelines, policies and regulations that address non-thermal effects. The good news: there appears to be an awakening at least within a significant segment the scientific community to the realization that these issues must be addressed — for the health of humans, wildlife and our environment — and DOI and the Department of Commerce are also beginning to address non-thermal effects to migratory birds.”

EWASTE: Global e-waste growth rate poses increased danger to the environment
According to the report, only 17.4% of e-waste is recycled annually, leaving about 83% of electronic waste to end up in landfills and bodies of water. According to Belmont Trading, many marine species are dying due to the increase in electronic waste in the oceans.
“We know we’re losing biodiversity at a rate that is 1,000 times faster than we should be,” said Stuart Pimm, a conservation biologist at Duke University.
Examining the impact of eWaste on marine life
IDR Environmental Services says it plainly: “Already two-thirds of aquatic life is considered to be an endangered species because of improperly disposed chemicals and other waste.” What’s more: “When a toxic waste harms one organism, it can end up destroying an entire food chain of aquatic life.” And it’s happening fast. According to Stuart Pimm, a conservation biologist at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, “We know we’re losing biodiversity at a rate that is 1,000 times faster than we should be.” And the problem is spreading. “Improperly disposed chemicals pollute marine life and kills sea mammals, corals, and fish,” Pimm says. “At the same time, sea birds are affected because they eat the fish. In a matter of fact, any organism that digests affected marine life can have adverse effects.”
eWaste doesn’t have to be dumped directly into the world’s water sources to end up there. Landfilled eWaste can affect marine wildlife, as the toxic chemicals in eWaste that do not organically break down can, over time, can seep directly into the environment to contaminate ground water; and if the items are incinerated, the toxins get absorbed into the atmosphere and return in atmospheric fallout or acid rain.
The following heavy metals, toxic substances and hazardous chemicals are used in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment. It’s after their useful life, when they’re landfilled, incinerated or dumped into waterways, that they prove most devastating.
EWASTE: Video: Rising e-waste and a deficit of recycling
Millions of tons of electrical and electronic equipment are discarded every year, and many companies that claim to “recycle” these materials are actually exporting the e-waste to developing countries instead, where it is often dumped improperly in the ground or burned, releasing toxic pollutants into the environment and negatively affecting the health of workers.
Why is e-waste growing so rapidly? The report says the growing amount is mainly fueled by higher consumption rates of electrical and electronic equipment, short life cycles, and few repair options. And though Asia generated the highest quantity of e-waste in 2019 at 24.9 million Mt, Europe ranked first worldwide in terms of e-waste generation per capita at 16.2 kg.
On a positive note, the number of countries that have adopted a national e-waste policy, legislation, or regulation has increased from 61 to 78 since 2014. Unfortunately, “regulatory advances in some regions are slow, enforcement is poor, and policy, legislation, or regulation does not yet stimulate the collection and proper management of e-waste due to lack of investment and political motivation,” the report says.

FCC: FCC reluctantly proposes rules to auction the T-Band
By Kelly Hill on JULY 8, 2020 Spectrum
Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)
The Federal Communications Commission is usually enthusiastic about opening up additional spectrum for commercial use. Not in the case of the T-Band—which has long been used by public safety agencies in some major cities, but under a Congressional mandate, has to be auctioned off by February 2021.
The section of law which requires the T-Band to be auctioned is part of the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012, which also created the First Responders Network Authority. The deal it created was essentially this: If public safety was to be granted dedicated Band 14 spectrum at 700 MHz and future auction proceeds that would fund a public-private partnership for a national first responder mobile broadband network, they would have to give up the T-Band.
FCC Chair Ajit Pai has repeatedly asked Congress to scuttle the so-called T-Band mandate, arguing that between the cost of moving users out of the band and the disruption to public safety communications, it’s not worth it. While there is bipartisan opposition to a T-Band auction and some legislation has been proposed that would include a repeal of the mandate, so far Congress hasn’t passed anything that lets the FCC off the hook for a T-Band auction. So the agency recently proposed rules (pdf) for the reallocation of the T-Band spectrum at 470-512 MHz.
The proposed flexible use rules would include fixed or mobile wireless, and permitting broadband operations to continue in the band. There is between 6-18 megahertz of spectrum potentially available in each of eleven urbanized areas where the T-Band is in use: Boston, MA; Chicago, IL; Dallas/Fort Worth, TX; Houston, TX; Los Angeles, CA; Miami, FL; New York, NY/NE NJ; Philadelphia, PA; Pittsburgh, PA; San Francisco/Oakland, CA; and Washington, D.C./MD/VA (T-Band spectrum was also allocated but never assigned in Detroit, Michigan and Cleveland, Ohio, due to conflicts with Canada about border operations). T-Band licensees are allows an 80-mile operational radius.
According to the FCC, in most of those areas, “T-Band provides public safety entities with significant and much needed additional channel capacity to support their operations.” The agency said that major public safety T-Band licensees include the county of Los Angeles, the New York City Police Department, and the city of Chicago’s Office of Emergency Management.
