Unapproved genetically modified wheat found in Canada

June 15, 2018. Halifax – The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has announced the discovery of unapproved genetically modified (GM, also called genetically engineered) wheat near a farm in Alberta, but says the contamination is an isolated event.(1)

“We’re relieved this is an isolated contamination case but we’re concerned that the government couldn’t determine how it happened. Without knowing the cause, contamination could happen again,” said Lucy Sharratt of the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network (CBAN).

Monsanto’s glyphosate-tolerant GM trait was found in several wheat plants on a road in southern Alberta in 2017. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency was unable to identify the cause.

“A less isolated GM wheat contamination incident could be devastating to Canadian farmers and the future of our wheat exports,” Thibault Rehn of the Quebec network Vigilance OGM, “We can’t afford to be careless with GM crops because it’s difficult or impossible to reverse contamination once it occurs.”

Canada is a major wheat-producing nation. Wheat crops contribute $11 billion annually to Canada’s economy.

Genetically modified wheat is not approved by any government and is therefore illegal. No GM wheat has ever been commercially grown or sold in any country in the world. Monsanto last grew test plots of wheat with this GM trait in 2004 in Canada.

In 2004, Monsanto withdrew its request for approval of its GM herbicide-tolerant (glyphosate-tolerant) “Roundup Ready” wheat in Canada and the US due to pressure from farmers and consumers along with international market rejection.

There have been three contamination incidents in the US with Monsanto’s GM wheat – in 2016, 2014 and 2013. In 2013, several countries suspended wheat imports from the US after GM wheat plants were discovered in a farmer’s field. The US government was unable to determine the cause of that contamination.

“Farmers should be consulted before GM crops are tested outside the lab. We need to determine if the economic risk is too high to field-test certain GM crops,” said Sharratt.

The exact locations of experimental GM crop field trials in Canada are not disclosed.

“We need to protect our bread basket from rogue GM traits,” said Sharratt.

The Clean Label Project is engaged in SCIENCE FRAUD to mislead consumers and falsely accuse protein powders of being alarmingly contaminated with heavy metals (OPINION)

Image: The Clean Label Project is engaged in SCIENCE FRAUD to mislead consumers and falsely accuse protein powders of being alarmingly contaminated with heavy metals (OPINION)

(Natural News) (Opinion analysis) The Clean Label Project is engaged in dangerous scientific fraud that misleads consumers into thinking perfectly safe protein powders are wildly contaminated with toxic heavy metals. That’s my conclusion after reviewing the Clean Label Project’s wildly unscientific attack on protein products such as VEGA, where the Clean Label Project seems to insinuate that “detectable” levels of elements somehow means the products are scandalous.

Note that I am the very person who pioneered heavy metals testing of protein products back in 2013, raising the alarm over relatively high levels of lead and cadmium found in certain products that used rice protein imported from Asia. I’m also the author of Food Forensics and the founder and director of CWC Labs, an ISO-accredited food contamination laboratory running multiple mass spec instruments (including ICP-MS for elemental analysis). Finally, I’m the creator of LowHeavyMetalsVerified.org, a heavy metals standard that we’ve openly published for the food industry. I created the standard in 2013, and it’s what we use for all our own products.

When I ran tests on protein powders in 2013, I released the raw data to the public, naming the precise concentrations of elements (in ppb) detected in various protein products. Because of that effort, many protein companies reformulated their products, and in the years since, I have repeatedly tested many different brands and have not yet found heavy metals levels alarming enough to issue any sort of public warning about them.

Yet, the Clean Label Project is running a “black box” junk science operation in which they rate protein products between one to five stars without disclosing their lab results.

Clean Label Project engaged in massive deception and fraud

I have found the ratings system of the Clean Label Project to be not merely dishonest and unethical, but downright fraudulent. Here’s a good example: The Vega One Plant-Based Mixed Berry All-In-One Shake product is labeled by the Clean Label Project as just one star out of five. In the “Results Summary” section, “1 out of 5” ratings are given to “Arsenic / Mercury” and “Cadmium / Lead,” implying that this Vega One product is dangerously contaminated with Arsenic, Mercury, Cadmium and Lead.

As an ISO-accredited laboratory directory and heavy metals expert in food contamination, I can assure you that Vega One protein products contain no dangerous levels of these elements. I know this because I began testing Vega products in 2013, and I found that Vega proteins were among the cleanest in the industry.

Based on my experience in testing these products, it is my experience that Vega One proteins will have less than 100 ppb of lead (or 0.1 ppm), near-zero mercury, and very low levels of arsenic or cadmium (likely below 50 ppb in most cases).

This idea that because some parts per billion of lead is “detectable” is somehow an alarming thing is complete scientific nonsense. I’ve learned that lesson myself, as I received such a backlash from releasing mass spec test results on trace chemicals found in bone broth products that I had to pull back the original announcements and re-issue clarifications that calmed some of the over-reaction in the mind of the public.

What I know as a food contamination scientist is that if you have enough sensitivity in your instruments, you can find some trace level of lead in nearly everything. Lead being “detectable” does not make it dangerous. It is the concentration and total daily intake that makes it dangerous, and Vega One protein products are nowhere near any level of alarm in my opinion — not even close.

Similarly, I’ve never seen a sample of honey without a trace of glyphosate in it. That statement may surprise some people, but it’s true.

Rarely do I see a food sample with zero ppb of lead. While I very often see mercury (Hg) at zero ppb, lead is usually above zero for most foods. For certain foods such as turmeric root, ginger root and many spices, lead can be alarmingly high in certain samples. For example, we won’t sell turmeric root with lead above 250 ppb, and from time to time we are able to source turmeric root powder with lead below 50 ppb. (That’s 0.05 ppm, in case you’re keeping track.)

The Clean Label Project uses a failed, fraudulent model for assigning ratings for heavy metals

Further adding to the science fraud being carried out by the Clean Label Project, the organization claims to assign star ratings as follows:

The star-rating you see tells you whether the product is average (3 stars), below average (1 star), or above average (5 stars) in terms of the overall purity (lower levels of contaminants) and/or higher in elements of nutritional superiority compared to other similar products in the category.

The problem with such an approach — which should be obvious — is that there are no absolute standards for pass / fail concentrations of potentially toxic elements.

In other words, if the Clean Label Project tests 20 products in a given category and they’re all very clean, some of those products will still receive a one-star rating because they have slightly more lead (for example) than the other products, even if all 20 are remarkably clean.

This approach also means that the Clean Label Project could toss out a particularly high-lead product in order to skew the results curve and make many clean products look contaminated by comparison. Yet the Clean Label Project does not explain how they decide which products to include or exclude from their analysis, and they fail to release raw results from the lab tests.

In essence the Clean Label Project is a black box of junk science with near-zero transparency and no accountability whatsoever. They ask the public to trust their ratings but won’t release the raw test results data. The even lump arsenic and mercury together — and cadmium and lead — for a completely illogical, inexplicable reason that only they could possibly understand. There is no mass spec instrument in the world that cannot tell the difference between arsenic and mercury, as their mass-to-charge ratios are very far apart. The same goes with cadmium and lead. No instruments confuse cadmium and lead.

The Clean Label Project is “playing dirty,” writes Dr. Chad Hayes:

The thing that invalidates their data is that they don’t publish it. Their methodology section provides a list of things they test for, but they lump some of them into broad categories like “antibiotics” or “pesticides.” An actual scientific study would provide a list of the specific substances.

Why is this important? Well, testing positive for “pesticides” could mean a lot of different things. Some pesticides are more toxic than others, and some are harmless below a certain dose. It’s also important because if they tested for pesticides used in conventional agriculture but not those used by organic farmers, the results would be heavily skewed. But we don’t know which ones they looked for, because CLP won’t tell us.

Another really important detail that actual scientific researchers would have published is the amount of specific contaminants found in each food or formula. It’s important to know whether a substance was present in high concentrations or if it was barely detectable. As with any potentially toxic substance (including, say, water), the dose is key. Even if we knew what substances were found in each food, we would have no idea if it mattered or not without this vital detail.

The bottom line? The Clean Label Project needs to clean up its own labeling, because what it’s releasing to the public right now is pure hogwash alarmism and nonsense.

The Clean Label Project needs to come clean about its lab test results

It is my view that the Clean Label Project is dangerously misleading customers and raising false alarms over “detectable” lead levels in many products that have no lead problem whatsoever (the same goes for cadmium, arsenic, etc.).

I also believe the Clean Label Project is deliberately hiding its lab test results because the raw data would clearly show those products to be perfectly safe and clean.

By withholding the raw lab data from the public, the Clean Label Project all but confirms suspicious among informed scientists like myself that they have something to hide and don’t want to come clean with their own raw data.

So today, I am joining the Natural Products Association in demanding the Clean Label Project cease and desist its fraudulent science hoaxes that target dietary supplements.

As the Natural Product Association wrote in a March 1 press release:

New Protein Powder “Study” is Poisonous Fake News
Shadow Group that Slams Healthy Protein Powder Products Has Ties to Corporate Interests & Won’t Publish Actual Study, Funders

“This so-called ‘study’ doesn’t even rise to the level of junk science because there’s no science in it at all. This fake news poisons the well with misinformation and innuendo and could actually threaten the ability to protect consumers from harmful products,” said Dan Fabricant, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Natural Products Association. “NPA believes this shadow group should disclose its funders and the methodology it used to produce this study so the public can make an educated decision about what products to use.”

As a published food scientist and founder of an ISO-accredited food science laboratory, I complete agree with this statement by Dan Fabricant. The Clean Label Project is a fraud. Its claims are deceptive and harmful to consumers. The Clean Label Project gives “science” a bad name because it pretends to engage in science while, in reality, conducts no legitimate science at all.

Why won’t the Clean Label Project release the raw results of its testing?

Today, I am demanding that the Clean Label Project publicly release the raw data to myself and other qualified food scientists who can properly interpret those data with the benefit of lab science experience combined with food transparency.

The lab that ran the tests — Ellipse Analytics — appears to have undisclosed ties to the Clean Label Project founder. As Dr. Hayes writes:

Except that the “independent lab,” Ellipse Analytics (EA) doesn’t seem all that independent. It’s a relatively new lab located in the same city as CLP. EA’s website doesn’t provide a lot of information. But if you check out the LinkedIn profile for Jaclyn Bowen, you’ll find that she served as the President of Ellipse Analytics from April 2016- January 2017 prior to her current role as the Executive Director at Clean Label Project. And apparently, the pet food data for the original study was provided to CLP by EA as a “generous donation.”

In conclusion, real science is supposed to be about transparency, not black box algorithms and secret scoring systems that the public isn’t allowed to see. By concealing this information from the public while sounding a false alarm about clean, safe protein products, the Clean Label Project actually performs a disservice to the public, leading many consumers to avoid products which are, in reality, very nutritious and clean.

In fact, I’m starting to wonder whether the Clean Label Project is some sort of shady front group formed to attack and smear the reputation of dietary supplements. I’m not leveling that as a confirmed accusation at this point, but it’s something I’m beginning to suspect.

Undermining a self-sustaining system: A look at the reasons why modern medicine will NEVER be okay with natural health

Image: Undermining a self-sustaining system: A look at the reasons why modern medicine will NEVER be okay with natural health

(Natural News) Every single one of us is involved in a war that we probably know nothing about. There are villains and heroes on both sides of the battle, and the battleground is littered with landmines that have to be navigated every single day. What is this war? The epic battle between conventional medicine and natural health.

You see, every time you take a supplement, get medication at the pharmacy, eat a meal, choose whether or not to exercise, or make one of a thousand other small choices, you are choosing sides between modern medicine that promises to medicate all your symptoms away with little effort required on your part, or natural health, which demands that you take responsibility for your own well-being by what you choose to eat and drink, how much exercise you do, and even how you manage your stress levels.

There are well-intentioned, caring individuals on both sides of this war. There is no doubt that unscrupulous individuals who care little about others make money from both allopathic and complementary medicine – both are billion-dollar industries, after all. Nonetheless, even the most caring and devoted practitioner of modern medicine can offer only one solution to long-term, chronic health issues: drugs to take away the symptoms. And when those drugs cause other symptoms, that kindly doctor will simply prescribe more medications. Until, finally, like 99 percent of all elderly people, you end up taking a handful of pills every day, all while feeling terrible and having virtually no quality of life.

Natural health, on the other hand, focuses on the total, holistic, overall health of the individual. It emphasizes the prevention of illness by healthy eating, eliminating processed, chemical-laden foods, getting lots of sunshine and fresh air, exercising regularly and managing stress in healthy ways.

Support our mission and enhance your own self-reliance: The laboratory-verified Organic Emergency Survival Bucket provides certified organic, high-nutrition storable food for emergency preparedness. Completely free of corn syrup, MSG, GMOs and other food toxins. Ultra-clean solution for years of food security. Learn more at the Health Ranger Store.

And that is why the battle rages on. For modern medicine to function, and for doctors, hospitals and pharmacies to make money, lots of people need to get sick, and they need to get sick often. Since complementary medicine eliminates the causes of many illnesses – including “so-called” lifestyle diseases – the medical community goes on the attack, calling those who practice this type of medicine quacks and charlatans.

There is no doubt that acute medicine – emergency medical treatment – saves thousands of lives every day.  Every single one of us is grateful that if a loved one is involved in a car accident or gets hurt on the sports field etc., they can get the professional care that they need to make a full recovery. And we are immensely grateful for the antibiotics which can treat life-threatening bacterial infections like meningitis or even a simple cut that could have proved lethal 100 years ago.

However, there is a darker side to medicine that counts on us obediently following instructions, taking the medications we’re told to take without ever making any lifestyle changes that, like a landmine on a battlefield, is a hidden but lethal danger. (Related: The medical monopoly: It’s not about who’s right or wrong but who’s in charge.)

Doctors receive almost no training in medical school about preventative medicine or nutrition, and yet their conviction that they know best, the “God-complex” that many exhibit, means that they are unwilling to recognize the gaping hole in their education. (Related: Discover the amazing secrets in nature’s medicine cabinet at NaturalPedia.com.)

And while many doctors are doubtless caring individuals, we all know of doctors who entered the medical field simply to make money – and lots of it.

The fact is, from the cradle to the grave, we are fed propaganda that makes us believe that we need far more medical help than we really do. Yes, we’re grateful that doctors are there in an emergency, but when it comes to treating the whole person, preventing the very diseases that allopathic medicine promises to treat, you simply cannot beat doing it the natural way.

Monsanto name to be wiped as BAYER consumes the evil corporation, creating the world’s largest chemical giant with a history of crimes against humanity

 

Image: Monsanto name to be wiped as BAYER consumes the evil corporation, creating the world’s largest chemical giant with a history of crimes against humanity

(Natural News) Bayer is expected to finish off its $62.5 billion purchasing deal with Monsanto this week — and plans to retire the infamous “Monsanto” name are already in gear. But even if the name Monsanto becomes a thing of the past, the company’s dirty deeds and hazardous products will continue to live on.

Bayer certainly knows a thing or two about re-branding to save face; once known as I.G. Farben, the company engaged in a number of disgusting acts back in the day, including using Jewish slave laborers during the Holocaust. Changing their name to Bayer has not mitigated this fact — though it certainly has helped the company remain profitable.

It’s sadly almost fitting that these two companies have ended up together, as both Bayer and Monsanto have a history of committing crimes against humanity. Unfortunately, this wicked pairing will spell disaster for the rest of us.

Changing names means nothing

As the merging of Bayer and Monsanto draws closer, Bayer has revealed that once combined, the name Monsanto will cease to exist. Instead, Monsanto and its products will simply become part of the Bayer “family.”

But will relabeling Roundup as a Bayer product change the fact that it’s toxic and makes people sick? No. Will the independent media suddenly stop reporting on their cancer-causing glyphosate and pernicious GMO products? Absolutely not. Monsanto may disappear in name, but its legacy of toxicity and disregard for human life will unfortunately live on — and people are right to be worried about what comes next.

While the name Bayer may not currently draw as much ire as the name Monsanto does, it should — and perhaps one day it will. The Bayer company’s history is just as sordid and twisted as Monsanto’s, after all.

Over 20 years ago, Helge Wehmeier, then-head of Bayer Corp, publicly apologized to the late Elie Wiesel and other Holocaust survivors for the egregiously inhumane actions of I.G. Farben.

“I have sorrow and regret and apologize for the inhumanity in my country for what I.G. Farben did to your people,” Wehmeier said to Wiesel during a lecture in 1995. Wiesel was one of many Jewish slave laborers used by the company during the Holocaust. The company was also reportedly heavily invested in the development of Zyklon B, a toxic insecticide.

Bayer’s dark past

I.G. Farben scientists also conducted experiments on their captive slaves. In 2003, Holocaust survivor Zoe Polanska Palmer spoke out about her experiences as a Nazi test subject. Many SS doctors reportedly worked for Bayer’s parent company, I.G. Farben, including Dr. Victor Capesius and Dr. Helmut Vetter — both of whom were tried and convicted for various war crimes, with the latter being executed after the war. Capesius, Polanska Palmer says, is the doctor who experimented on her, and witnesses say he worked for Bayer.

Ms. Polanska Palmer was not alone; countless children were reportedly abducted and experimented on. In the late 1990’s, Eva Mozes Kor launched her own lawsuit against Bayer, claiming that the company supervised the purchasing of her and her twin from Nazis and that they were then used as “guinea pigs” by the infamous Josef Mengele. Kor alleges that she and other children were purposely infected with a host of diseases “to test the effectiveness of various drugs manufactured by Bayer.”

Ms. Kor stated at the time, “After 54 years, it is time that Bayer takes responsibility for their actions.” In addition to financial restitution, Kor said she wants to hear an actual apology. While Bayer has admitted to the use of slave labor, the company has not readily disclosed the other acts of evil their parent company was involved in.

In 2003, in response to Ms. Polanska Palmer’s claims, Bayer contended that the name Bayer didn’t even exist between 1925 and 1952, and so, the company we know today had nothing to do with I.G. Farben. Really?

As sources explain, I.G. Farben has never truly stopped existing. Even though the Allies broke up the company due to their evil and inhumane activities, it simply became three new companies: Bayer, Hoechst and BASF. As of 2012, I.G. Farben still existed as a company in liquidation.

Is Bayer really as far removed from I.G. Farben as it claims to be?

City sticking to its machines – Penticton Castanet News

City sticking to its machines

The City of Penticton will be using machines again to count votes in this fall’s municipal election, dashing the hopes for a small vocal group of residents that have been demanding votes be manually tallied.

City council voted Tuesday to approve four bylaws outlining how October’s election will be run. One of them outlines the use of vote tabulation machines that have been used in Penticton since 1999 and are commonplace across B.C.

The city’s chief electoral officer Laurie Darcus said they were strongly advised by Elections BC against manually counting ballots, unless it is by judicial review. The cost of a manual recount is estimated at up to $6,500.

She said the vote counting machines to be used again this October simply count marks on paper ballots and are not hooked up to the internet, adding the city would be holding an open test to display the accuracy of the machines prior to the election.

During question period, Darcus repeated her explanation of how the vote counting machines work several times to a few unsatisfied residents.

“What’s wrong with the good old days, when we did it all by hand?” asked Penticton Herald managing editor James Miller, speaking as a private citizen.

Miller suggested that nobody challenged the results of the 2015 federal election locally because the ballots were counted by hand. He added that large banks have been hacked, and asked if the vote counting machines used in Penticton could be tampered with by a “less than reputable individual.”

“These are not computers. They are vote tabulating units, so they don’t have any systems to hack into,” explained Darcus. “These are simply counting marks on a card — it’s almost like an adding machine, an old, old adding machine.”

Local activist Kevin Proteau also questioned council on the security of the vote counting machines, demanding a manual count. Proteau mounted a similar challenge of the use of the machines in 2014.

“To manually go through 10,000, there is probably more errors going through a manual count then you will ever get with an electronic count,” said Mayor Andrew Jakubeit at the end of a lengthy exchange.

October’s election will include three advance polls and a second polling station on general voting day to alleviate wait times. Council also adopted changes to its political signage bylaws, limiting signs to 13 spots on public property around the city.

Keep pressing for manual recount in Penticton – Meeting at 1pm Tuesday June 5, 2018

Keep pressing for manual recount

Dear editor:

Last spring, Helen Trevors and James Miller and I had a meeting with the new director of corporate services at City Hall about the mechanics of the next civic election.

Amongst the issues discussed at this meeting were:

The city advertising for scrutineers and allowing candidates to pick from a vetted list; training scrutineers in an evening session so they know what their responsibilities are and exactly what they can and cannot do, rather than them undertaking this position with no knowledge of what their duties; rights and responsibilities to the candidates.

Two polling stations plus advance polling days; the City providing chairs, eliminating the need of voters to stand in lineups waiting to vote; sufficient staff hired to eliminate line ups (voting should not be an endurance contest for seniors or the disabled); giving out numbers so when voters are waiting they won’t lose their place in the lineup just because they sit.

Mail-in ballots for voters in the residential community care and retirement homes that will allow the mobility challenged to participate in the election; their right to vote was denied in the last civic election as no provision was made to enable them to vote.

Also and most importantly a manual recount was requested after the election in addition to the machine count. This would allay any citizen fears that their vote wasn’t counted or the fears of some that these machines could be tampered with or that the election results were tampered with in any way.

While most of the above is at the discretion of the director of corporate services, providing it falls within the Community Charter and can be provided for within the budget, the manual count is a financial issue requiring the assent of council.

A preliminary count by machine could be released the night of the election followed by a manual count after the election, which would cost $4,500 to $6,500 – a minimal cost to protect voters.

Council will hear the presentation from the director of corporate services on Tuesday, June 5 at the afternoon session. We need your physical presence and support to ensure that council understands that the voters in Penticton consider this issue important and that it merits their attention.

5G tech in city street lamps causing nosebleeds, stillbirths, insomnia…

Image: Scientists warn that 5G tech found in WiFi street lamps is causing insomnia, nosebleeds, and stillbirths

(Natural News) Across the pond, one brave man is speaking out about a sudden spike in health problems he believes are related to LED streetlamps that purportedly emit 5G radiation. In Gateshead, a town in Northern England, citizens are reporting an array of disturbing side effects including insomnia, nosebleeds and even stillbirth — and Mark Steele has something to say about it.

Steele, 58, is a local resident in Gateshead and reportedly is a member of the IEEE, an organization which describes itself as “the world’s largest technical professional organisation dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity.”

He is doing his best to raise awareness about the threat posed by the new LED street lamps, which were installed back in 2016. Steele says that a number of people have been suffering with nosebleeds, insomnia and other neurological problems since the lights were put in place. But the horror doesn’t end there: Multiple women have lost their babies since that time. In his own circle of friends, Steele explains, three women have lost babies — one of which was born with severe defects and survived just a few hours after birth.

“We are seeing babies dying in the womb as these transmitters are situated outside people’s bedroom windows. It’s a humanitarian crisis,” Steele reportedly commented.

Dangers of EMF radiation on the rise

Though the science on EMF radiation is still far from established, many researchers believe that it does indeed have the potential to cause harm. EMF radiation is the same kind of radiation produced by cell phones, though it can be emitted from other devices — including LED streetlights, according to Professor Ulrich Warnke, from the University of Saarland.

Completely free of corn syrup, MSG, GMOs and other food toxins. Ultra-clean solution for years of food security. Learn more at the Health Ranger Store.

Warnke believes that EMF radiation “causes disruption to the body’s nitrogen monoxide system, which keeps cells healthy and controls gene expression,” but he’s not the only one. Multiple health agencies have sounded the alarm on the potential dangers of this kind of radiation — but few are listening.

Back in 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO) warned that EMF radiation was “possibly carcinogenic to humans,” and in particular, posed a risk for glioma — a malignant type of brain cancer.

At the end of 2017, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued a similar warning regarding cellphones and their potential link to brain cancer. The European Academy for Environmental Medicine has also declared that EMF radiation is linked to cancer and other conditions like insomnia.

The evidence against EMF radiation is piling up — and yet, city officials are refusing to recognize that people are at risk.

Gateshead officials deny any health risks

As usual, government officials are already engaging in full disaster-control, publicly decrying any health risks that may be linked to their radiation-emitting streetlights. In a Facebook post, Gateshead Council declared that “certain individuals are frightening local people with false stories” about the threat of EMF radiation.

As is typical, uncomfortable truths are labeled “fake news” by the government. Gateshead officials continued their propaganda post by declaring that there was “no scientific basis or credible evidence” to support the claims that the LED streetlights were causing health problems city-wide.

The government further claimed that the LED streetlights do not operate on a 5G network. But as Mr. Steele explained, “The transmitter operates at 868 – 870 MHz. That is a specific 5G spectrum.”

Steele believes that Gateshead officials have put the entire city at risk by secretly rolling out a test-run of 5G tech in the area.

Whether or not this is true is unconfirmed, but the risks posed by EMF radiation remain. While city officials are doing their best to quash any semblance of concern, residents like Mr. Steele will hopefully continue to sound the alarm as things go awry. There are many concerns about the rolling out of 5G networks and other radiation-producing devices. You can learn more at Glitch.news.

The Government Does NOT Want You To Grow Your Own Food! Here’s Why You Should And How! B.C

The one thing the government fears the most is an independent self sustaining populous no longer needing any assistance from the nanny state. In the face of corrupt governments all over the world living off the grid has become a viable way to step outside of the matrix and to no longer comply with their system of enslavement. One of the most important aspects to being able to achieve a good life off the grid is having the knowledge and ability to grow your own food! In this video Dan Dicks of Press For Truth speaks with The Urban Farmer Curtis Stone about being self sustainable by growing fresh organic produce for your family friends and community outside of the governments control.

DUTCH GOVERNMENT APRIL 2018: RADIATION #5G ANTENNAS: POSSIBLE HAZARD PUBLIC HEALTH!

The Ministry of Economic Affairs is considering restricting radiation from radio masts nationwide. Due to the roll-out of #5G, a proliferation of antennas is expected, including in lampposts and bus shelters. This could potentially pose a threat to public health.

T-Mobile launched the first 5G antenna of the Netherlands in Amsterdam at the end of last year – by way of experiment -. If it is up to the government, 5G will be rolled out throughout the Netherlands in 2020. That means a considerable increase in transmission masts.

A document from the Ministry of Economic Affairs states that ‘consideration is being given to establishing standards for electromagnetic fields’. Now there are no nationally determined limits for the radiation released by transmission masts.

“With the roll-out of the new 5G network, we expect more antennas in the streets in the coming years”, explains a spokesperson for the ministry. “Now you see the antennas on masts, roofs of flats and other high buildings. More ‘small cells’ will be added, think of antennas in lampposts, bus shelters and advertising pillars. “

According to the spokesman ‘does that something with the radiation’. “We want as much security as possible for citizens that electromagnetic fields from the antennas do not pose a threat to health in the living environment, even if there are multiple antennas in the immediate vicinity.”

At the end of last year, 180 scientists from 36 countries warned about the potential risks of the 5G network still to be built. The radiation density will increase considerably, but the consequences for public health are unknown. The scientists state that some studies show that there is a link between radiation and brain tumors, Alzheimer’s disease and infertility in men.

 

‘5G IMPORTANT FOR THE FUTURE’

Despite this warning, State Secretary Mona Keijzer of Economic Affairs is certainly planning to roll out a national 5G network by 2020. According to her, 5G is important for the future of self-driving cars, drones and fast internet connections on mobile phones.

Congregation now assessing whether a new transmission mast may be installed. Already in 1999 a European directive with limits for electromagnetic fields was drawn up, but this has not been legally introduced in the Netherlands. “It is not the case that radiation is not taken into account now, municipalities look out for this, on the basis of a covenant with telecom providers,” says the spokesman for the ministry.

 

 

STRICTER STANDARDS ACROSS THE BORDER

comparative study by the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) – in January this year – shows that the Netherlands belongs to a small group of countries in Europe where no nationally defined limits apply to radiation from telephone transmitters. Most European countries adhere to the European directive, but in for instance Belgian Flanders the government is much stricter: in the vicinity of schools and care homes, the radiation power of a telephone terminal may only be 7% of the EU standard.

The standards are also considerably stricter in countries such as Italy, Luxembourg, Poland and Croatia than in the Netherlands. The differences are great because scientific research has not yet established beyond any doubt that radiation from radio masts is not dangerous to public health.

 

 

‘LITTLE KNOWN ABOUT LONG-TERM HEALTH EFFECTS’

For example, the GGD in Amsterdam says that ‘we do not know much about the long-term health effects (such as cancer) of living in an electromagnetic field around mobile telephony antennas’. That is because the antennas are only relatively short. “The strength of these fields is generally so low that health problems are not expected”, according to the GGD. Some people are convinced that their health problems are caused by these antennas. They reported very different health complaints at the GGD such as headaches, fatigue and loss of concentration.

The Netherlands currently has over 45,000 antennae for mobile telephony (GSM, UMTS and 4G). That number will increase enormously in the coming years as the new 5G network is rolled out. “5G can work at a higher frequency,” says the spokesperson for the ministry. ,, That means more capacity, but the range of an antenna is less. As a result, many more small channels will be needed, which will appear everywhere in the streets. “

CHILDREN LEUKEMIA

“For high-voltage cables, stricter rules already apply in the Netherlands, because research shows that there is probably a link between the radiation from high-voltage lines and childhood leukemia.Therefore, no houses or schools may be built near a high-voltage line.

5G can work at a higher frequency. That means more capacity, but the range of an antenna is less. As a result, many more small channels will be needed, which will appear everywhere in the streets. “
