New 5G Cell Towers and Smart Meters to Increase Microwave Radiation – Invade Privacy

In Penticton they are currently installing the 5G Network as well as applying for a Smart City Grid grant and we need to have a public forum to know what this entails in regards to health and safety and privacy. There is a current campaign on for the smart city grant that looks all fun and furry and green but no one is looking to into these concerns and many stand to profit from this technology being installed. Locals Supporting Locals will be demanding a public forum be held so the public can make an informed decisions if this is something they want. Cancer and mental health along with many other illnesses are on the rise and no one is looking to the source of the problem but instead labeling people and medicating them. This has to stop! A Natural Okanagan is something we need to work towards for many reasons. Please read and watch the videos on the health and safety and share it with family and friends. Join our FB group the Meeting of the Minds where we meet to discuss the concerns of this and many others but more importantly discuss solutions here in the South Okanagan anyone is welcome to join our meetings https://www.facebook.com/groups/1266382626792783/?ref=group_header

Telecom Companies are Going Green, but Their Version of Green will cause Illness and Death

by John P. Thomas
Health Impact News

When the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) approved the use of 5-G microwave communication technology in 2016 and approved the use of microwave frequencies in the 30 Ghz range, [1], they opened the door to even higher levels of human illness and severe disability for American children and adults.

Urgent Call to Action for Californians

The announcement from StopSmartMeters.org states:

The Assembly Local Government Committee voted 6-1 to approve SB 649 on Wednesday June 28th (even after hearing the below testimony). It goes next to the Communications and Conveyance Committee at 1:30pm on July 12th. People are coming from all over the state to be there on this day to speak out against SB 649, including mayors, and regular people opposed to the bill. Will you be one of them? [23]

More details about SB 649 and the rally in Sacramento can be found here.

Dr. Ann Lee, M.D., testifies about the Dangers of the Proposed 5G Network:

Microwave radiation such as that currently being used in cell phones, Wi-Fi routers, and smart meters has already been linked to numerous health effects.

The introduction of even more intense levels of microwave exposure at higher frequencies will push many people into life-threatening chronic illness. High frequency microwave radiation is often overlooked as a causative factor in illness, because most conventional healthcare providers, government regulators, telecom companies, and electric utilities believe microwave radiation used in communication technology is harmless. [2]

Despite the warnings being raised by scientists, well informed healthcare providers, and grassroots organizations about existing and future microwave hazards, [3, 4, 5] telecom companies are planning to implement 5G technology throughout every urban area in America. They are already testing this new generation wireless telecommunication infrastructure in Boston, Austin, Palo Alto, and Mountain View California. [6, 7]

In a January 2017 announcement, AT&T described their plan for future technology deployment. The announcement stated:

Our 5G Evolution plans will pave the way to the next-generation of higher speeds for customers. We’re not waiting until the final standards are set to lay the foundation for our evolution to 5G. We’re executing now,” said John Donovan, chief strategy officer and group president, Technology and Operations. [8] [emphasis added]

The Battle to Implement 5G has begun in California

Metal antenna symbol with letters 5G on white

Proposed legislation in California would permit telecom companies to erect 50,000 new microwave antennas in residential and commercial areas without municipal approval.

The 5G microwave antennas would be placed on top of existing utility poles or on public infrastructure such as schools, libraries, bus shelters, and in public parks. The placement of this equipment will be at the discretion of the telecom companies. [9, 10, 11]

Health Dangers of Microwave Radiation have been Well Documented

The symptoms of microwave radiation exposure include fatigue, headaches, heart palpitations, high pitched ringing in the ears, dizziness, disturbed sleep at night, sleepiness in daytime, moodiness, irritability, unsociability, feelings of fear, anxiety, nervous tension, mental depression, memory impairment, pain in muscles, pain in the region of the heart, and breathing difficulties, to name a few.

Inflammation (caused by excess histamine in the blood), oxidative stress, autoimmune responses, reduced blood flow to the region of the thalamus, pathologic leakage of the blood-brain barrier, and a deficit in melatonin metabolic availability have all been observed.

There is evidence that existing and new frequencies of microwave radiation are associated with cancer, heart disease, neurological dysfunction, immune system suppression, cataracts of the eyes, and sperm malformation. [12, 13]

5G Microwaves have Harmful Biological Effects

In her testimony before the California legislature, Dr. Ann Lee, M.D., indicated that there are 20,000 well established scientific studies on the bio-effects of radio frequency radiation.

She confirmed that microwave radiation such as that from the proposed 5G wireless facilities that would be deployed in California has been shown to cause neurological damage, cardiac dysfunction, reproductive harm, immune compromises, and cancer. [14]

Dr. Ronald Powell, Ph.D., expands upon these concerns. Dr. Powell received his doctorate in Applied Physics from Harvard University in 1975, and has worked for the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Standards on energy policy research and R&D program evaluation.

He is uniquely qualified to interpret the junction between the physics of electromagnetic fields and the biological effects these fields produce. [15]

In a letter to the FCC, Dr. Ronald Powell stated:

It would greatly extend FCC’s current policy of the mandatory irradiation of the public without adequate prior study of the potential health impact and assurance of safety. It would irradiate everyone, including the most vulnerable to harm from radio frequency radiation: pregnant women, unborn children, young children, teenagers, men of reproductive age, the elderly, the disabled, and the chronically ill. [16]

AT&T: Let Us Install Microwave Transmitter on Your Home or Lose Service

Now that more than 50% of homes are wireless, telecom companies plan to abandon copper phone lines used for their phone service and create a wireless phone system. For example, Michigan has passed a law permitting this, and AT&T is working with all 21 states in its service territory to bring this about. [17, 18, 19]

As an alternative to the wired system, telecom companies plan to install wireless microwave transmitters on homes as a method of providing traditional phone service. In the case of AT&T customers, the only way you will be able to prevent them from installing such devices on your home is to remove AT&T as your service provider. [20]

In addition, telecom companies plan to install microwave antennas on top of electrical power poles near homes and businesses, and on top of public buildings throughout every urban area and in every neighborhood.

California Legislators Consider Bill to Allow More Microwave Radiation

But this is not just about offensive looking antennas!

Nina Beety described the situation in the article she wrote for StopSmartMeters.org. She is the moderator of the Wireless Radiation Alert Network and distributes her research about the harmful effects of electromagnetic fields and the dangers of smart meters on her website, SmartMeterHarm.org.

Nina Beety stated:

Spaced approximately every 10-20 homes, cell antennas will hang in one or more clusters on utility or light poles. Equipment cabinets the size of refrigerators, with cooling fans and back-up generators, will sit on sidewalks. Towers will be located in the public right of way a few feet from bedroom windows, offices, schools, hospitals and nursing homes.

Called “small cells,” there is little difference in size for many of these antennas; the chief difference is the location on utility poles versus large towers. Measurements of these cell towers recently taken in Palo Alto found high levels of radiation on the sidewalk below them — levels higher than those associated in research with breaches in the blood-brain barrier, free radical formation, DNA damage, cancer and tumors, and heart rhythm disturbances. [21]

Nina Beety is specifically describing the proposed system that would be implemented in California if the telecom companies get their way. Currently, a bill permitting the establishment of the 5G system has been passed by the California Senate. A legislative committee will be considering the bill on July 12, 2017. A rally at the State House in Sacramento is planned for July 12th. Please see the following urgent call for action and related links for the details.

Why do Telecom Companies Want a 5G Network? The Merging of Telecommunications with Electric Utilities

Telecom giants plan to take their 5G technology nationwide. It is part of a long-term plan to integrate telecom activities with electrical service providers. A 2015 white paper written by telecom companies, electric utilities, and technology developers published in the European Union describes their vision for the future.

As I interpret the images that these European visionaries are creating, I believe they are foreseeing a day when electrical power production and distribution will be controlled by the 5G network.

In this future vision, large-scale power production facilities will be replaced by hundreds of thousands of small power producers, which could even include personal power production in our homes from solar and wind.

Centralized Power and Control

Smart phone Tablet Smartwatch and Internet of things concept.Smart Home Technology Internet networking concept. Internet of things/Smart home automation

The 5G system will monitor not just consumption of power, but will monitor and control the redistribution of electrical power across the entire electrical grid.

The 5G network will be the nerves and sense organs of a massive organism that has a central brain somewhere, which controls all forms of information exchange and electric utilization/production.

Electricity will be used for all aspects of household and business activities, and the 5G network and its centralized brain will control everything. [24]

In the beginning, the speed of the 5G network will be marketed to consumers and businesses who want super-fast internet service. This will allow for instant access to videos and webpages with as little as a 5-millisecond delay from the moment a start button is pressed.

Transmission speeds will be hundreds of times faster than current internet connections. It will be so fast that it will be able to instantaneously project images on the lenses of smart enabled eye glasses to create virtual reality images that blend with the environment.

People will be able to watch videos or even read email simply by looking through the lenses of their glasses. The speed will be so phenomenal that it will make available self-driving cars, which can safely drive passengers to their destinations. [25]

Ultimately, the greatest benefit of the 5G system will be for utility companies. It will give them the ability to take total control of electric production, distribution, and consumption.

Smart Meters and Smart Appliances: Your Home is no Longer Private

Electric meter. Metering of electricity. Isolated. White background.

The smart meters that electric utilities are now installing throughout the U.S. are the nerve endings for what will become a highly complex centrally controlled information and energy exchange system.

The 5G network will use the smart meter system (being implemented throughout the U.S.) and the new generation of smart appliances to reach into our homes and make decisions for us.

Current smart meter technology enables electric utilities to read electric meters without sending a human being to physically read the meters.

Electric providers have been quietly installing these smart meters throughout the U.S. They insist that these meters are harmless even though they broadcast intense bursts of high frequency microwave radiation several times per minute 24-hours per day every day.

Currently, smart meters record electric consumption and transmit the information to the utility company for billing and electric distribution purposes.

The bursts of microwaves are used to communicate with other smart meters in the neighborhood and with wireless routers mounted on top of electric poles. The routers send even more powerful microwave signals several thousand times per hour to the utility company.

Smart appliances such as heating/cooling equipment, washers/dryers, refrigerators/freezers, stoves/microwave ovens, dishwashers, hot water heaters, and even electric coffee makers will each be able to broadcast and receive microwave signals.

These appliances and our smart meters will constantly communicate with one another all day long and all night long – they will never stop transmitting microwave radiation.

Everything that uses electricity will be potentially monitored and controlled by the power companies.

If desired, the electric providers can even independently turn off any appliance they wish whenever they wish to conserve energy consumption. [26, 27]

The need for smart appliances will be a boon for appliance manufacturers and microwave technology producers. The fusion of 5G with the electrical grid will require everyone to buy new appliances that are smart meter enabled or have our existing appliances retrofitted with microwave transmitters.

Is it Green or Just a Way for Corporations to Make More Money and Control Our Lives?

The 5G system goes hand-in-hand with the smart meter system. Together, these systems will be used to create “smart cities.”

These cities will be blanketed in high frequency microwave radiation and will provide the means for enabling a wide variety of new technology.

It is considered to be part of the green revolution. It is part of national technology priorities that were established at the beginning of the first Obama administration. [28]

It is green, because the technology will allow utility providers to closely control energy usage and implement billing systems that will benefit those who reduce energy consumption.

During times of peak energy usage, they will be able to control our appliances and even cut off certain appliances, so that available energy can be directed to high priority uses.

Such a system would supposedly prevent the need for building additional power production facilities, thus avoiding additional fossil fuel emissions or the creation of additional nuclear waste.

It is green, because telecom companies will no longer need to maintain thousands of miles of copper phone lines and switching equipment. Even though the telecom companies will discontinue the network of copper wire, they will still be using fiber optics for some activities.

There are Serious Health Risks Beyond the 5G Hype

As exciting as a future of blended telecommunications and electrical service technology might be for corporations and some consumers, there are very serious health risks, which the FDA and corporations are ignoring.

They believe that microwave technology used for communication does not affect human health. They believe that it doesn’t matter how much microwave radiation is put into the air and what frequencies are used to transmit information.

It doesn’t matter, because the single criterion that they use to judge safety is not affected by the new 5G system.

The criterion that is of interest to regulators is heating. Does the technology cause the human body to heat up and is that heating excessive? [29]

Almost anyone who has spoken on a cell phone pressed against their ear for a long phone call will notice that their ear and even the side of their head will feel warm by the time they end the call.

This is the heating effect of microwaves. This is why iPhones come with a warning to keep the phone 15 mm away from the body. [30]

Microwave Radiation Produces Cellular Disruption Even if it is Not Felt

At the beginning of this article, I mentioned a long list of health effects, medical conditions, and chronic illnesses that are associated with microwave exposure.

I plan to look at this research in more detail in my next article. I will address the effect of microwave radiation on heart function and nerve function, and examine the reality of electromagnetic hypersensitivity, which is already disabling hundreds of thousands of people in the U.S. even before the 5G network is implemented.

At this point, I want to finish up with a powerful quote from a recent article on anxiety disorders prepared by Dr. Joseph Mercola, D.O.

In part, the article mentioned microwave exposure as being a potential contributing factor for anxiety disorders. These comments offer additional evidence that the health effects of microwave exposure are profound and are being completely overlooked by regulators.

Dr. Mercola’s article stated:

Due to the pioneering work of Dr. Martin Pall, we know that voltage gated calcium channels are over 7 million times more sensitive to microwave radiation than the charged particles inside and outside our cells. This means that the safety standards for this exposure are off by a factor of 7 million.

When the EMF from the above listed devices [cellphones and cordless phones, Wi-Fi routers, baby monitors, smart meters and cellphone towers] hit your voltage gated calcium channels, nearly 1 million calcium ions per second are released into the cell, which then causes the cell to release excessive nitric oxide that then combines with superoxide to form peroxynitrate, which then forms the dangerous hydroxyl free radical that causes massive mitochondrial dysfunction.

Guess which tissues have the greatest density of voltage gated calcium channels? Your nerves and tissues, like the pacemaker in your heart and, of course, your brain. When the channels in the brain are activated, it causes a major disruption in neurotransmitter and hormonal balance that can radically increase the risk for not only anxiety and depression but arrhythmias, autism and Alzheimer’s. [31]

Final Question: Is the Technology Worth the Harm to Our Health and Loss of Privacy?

Smart Grid concept Industrial and smart grid devices in a connected network. Renewable Energy and Smart Grid Technology Smart city design with future technology for living.

There is a very basic question that we must all consider.

Are the dreams of mega-corporations to create smart cities saturated in high frequency microwave electromagnetic fields worth the harm that this technology will create for the people who live in those cities?

In smart cities, no one will be exempt from microwave exposure. We won’t be able to opt out, because the 5G microwave system is designed to reach every space in a city.

Those who experience microwave related illness and disability will have few options. They will either stay in the smart city and stay sick or they will need to try to find a place to live in some sparsely populated off the grid location where the 5G system does not reach.

Which future do you want for America? Super-fast internet and corporate control of every aspect of your life, or good health and longevity?

Transmission speeds will be hundreds of times faster than current internet connections. It will be so fast that it will be able to instantaneously project images on the lenses of smart enabled eye glasses to create virtual reality images that blend with the environment.

People will be able to watch videos or even read email simply by looking through the lenses of their glasses. The speed will be so phenomenal that it will make available self-driving cars, which can safely drive passengers to their destinations. [25]

Ultimately, the greatest benefit of the 5G system will be for utility companies. It will give them the ability to take total control of electric production, distribution, and consumption.

Smart Meters and Smart Appliances: Your Home is no Longer Private

Electric meter. Metering of electricity. Isolated. White background.

The smart meters that electric utilities are now installing throughout the U.S. are the nerve endings for what will become a highly complex centrally controlled information and energy exchange system.

The 5G network will use the smart meter system (being implemented throughout the U.S.) and the new generation of smart appliances to reach into our homes and make decisions for us.

Current smart meter technology enables electric utilities to read electric meters without sending a human being to physically read the meters.

Electric providers have been quietly installing these smart meters throughout the U.S. They insist that these meters are harmless even though they broadcast intense bursts of high frequency microwave radiation several times per minute 24-hours per day every day.

Currently, smart meters record electric consumption and transmit the information to the utility company for billing and electric distribution purposes.

The bursts of microwaves are used to communicate with other smart meters in the neighborhood and with wireless routers mounted on top of electric poles. The routers send even more powerful microwave signals several thousand times per hour to the utility company.

Smart appliances such as heating/cooling equipment, washers/dryers, refrigerators/freezers, stoves/microwave ovens, dishwashers, hot water heaters, and even electric coffee makers will each be able to broadcast and receive microwave signals.

These appliances and our smart meters will constantly communicate with one another all day long and all night long – they will never stop transmitting microwave radiation.

Everything that uses electricity will be potentially monitored and controlled by the power companies.

If desired, the electric providers can even independently turn off any appliance they wish whenever they wish to conserve energy consumption. [26, 27]

The need for smart appliances will be a boon for appliance manufacturers and microwave technology producers. The fusion of 5G with the electrical grid will require everyone to buy new appliances that are smart meter enabled or have our existing appliances retrofitted with microwave transmitters.

Is it Green or Just a Way for Corporations to Make More Money and Control Our Lives?

The 5G system goes hand-in-hand with the smart meter system. Together, these systems will be used to create “smart cities.”

These cities will be blanketed in high frequency microwave radiation and will provide the means for enabling a wide variety of new technology.

It is considered to be part of the green revolution. It is part of national technology priorities that were established at the beginning of the first Obama administration. [28]

It is green, because the technology will allow utility providers to closely control energy usage and implement billing systems that will benefit those who reduce energy consumption.

During times of peak energy usage, they will be able to control our appliances and even cut off certain appliances, so that available energy can be directed to high priority uses.

Such a system would supposedly prevent the need for building additional power production facilities, thus avoiding additional fossil fuel emissions or the creation of additional nuclear waste.

It is green, because telecom companies will no longer need to maintain thousands of miles of copper phone lines and switching equipment. Even though the telecom companies will discontinue the network of copper wire, they will still be using fiber optics for some activities.

There are Serious Health Risks Beyond the 5G Hype

As exciting as a future of blended telecommunications and electrical service technology might be for corporations and some consumers, there are very serious health risks, which the FDA and corporations are ignoring.

They believe that microwave technology used for communication does not affect human health. They believe that it doesn’t matter how much microwave radiation is put into the air and what frequencies are used to transmit information.

It doesn’t matter, because the single criterion that they use to judge safety is not affected by the new 5G system.

The criterion that is of interest to regulators is heating. Does the technology cause the human body to heat up and is that heating excessive? [29]

Almost anyone who has spoken on a cell phone pressed against their ear for a long phone call will notice that their ear and even the side of their head will feel warm by the time they end the call.

This is the heating effect of microwaves. This is why iPhones come with a warning to keep the phone 15 mm away from the body. [30]

Microwave Radiation Produces Cellular Disruption Even if it is Not Felt

At the beginning of this article, I mentioned a long list of health effects, medical conditions, and chronic illnesses that are associated with microwave exposure.

I plan to look at this research in more detail in my next article. I will address the effect of microwave radiation on heart function and nerve function, and examine the reality of electromagnetic hypersensitivity, which is already disabling hundreds of thousands of people in the U.S. even before the 5G network is implemented.

At this point, I want to finish up with a powerful quote from a recent article on anxiety disorders prepared by Dr. Joseph Mercola, D.O.

In part, the article mentioned microwave exposure as being a potential contributing factor for anxiety disorders. These comments offer additional evidence that the health effects of microwave exposure are profound and are being completely overlooked by regulators.

Dr. Mercola’s article stated:

Due to the pioneering work of Dr. Martin Pall, we know that voltage gated calcium channels are over 7 million times more sensitive to microwave radiation than the charged particles inside and outside our cells. This means that the safety standards for this exposure are off by a factor of 7 million.

When the EMF from the above listed devices [cellphones and cordless phones, Wi-Fi routers, baby monitors, smart meters and cellphone towers] hit your voltage gated calcium channels, nearly 1 million calcium ions per second are released into the cell, which then causes the cell to release excessive nitric oxide that then combines with superoxide to form peroxynitrate, which then forms the dangerous hydroxyl free radical that causes massive mitochondrial dysfunction.

Guess which tissues have the greatest density of voltage gated calcium channels? Your nerves and tissues, like the pacemaker in your heart and, of course, your brain. When the channels in the brain are activated, it causes a major disruption in neurotransmitter and hormonal balance that can radically increase the risk for not only anxiety and depression but arrhythmias, autism and Alzheimer’s. [31]

Final Question: Is the Technology Worth the Harm to Our Health and Loss of Privacy?

Smart Grid concept Industrial and smart grid devices in a connected network. Renewable Energy and Smart Grid Technology Smart city design with future technology for living.

There is a very basic question that we must all consider.

Are the dreams of mega-corporations to create smart cities saturated in high frequency microwave electromagnetic fields worth the harm that this technology will create for the people who live in those cities?

In smart cities, no one will be exempt from microwave exposure. We won’t be able to opt out, because the 5G microwave system is designed to reach every space in a city.

Those who experience microwave related illness and disability will have few options. They will either stay in the smart city and stay sick or they will need to try to find a place to live in some sparsely populated off the grid location where the 5G system does not reach.

Which future do you want for America? Super-fast internet and corporate control of every aspect of your life, or good health and longevity?

What you need to know on 5G a Chinese company and Telus

EMFs
US Intelligence warns against Chinese company that Telus has invited into our grid.

1)    US Intelligence Chiefs warn against allowing China’s Huawei from getting involved with telecommunications. Telus has partnered with this company big time – Huawei transmitters are in the microcells outside our homesHas Telus invited major hackers into our grid?  I would imagine that the same concerns apply to Chinese companies working on other major infrastructure projects such as Site C.

Six top US intelligence chiefs caution against buying Huawei phones

“Six top U.S. intelligence chiefs told the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday they would not advise Americans to use products or services from Chinese smartphone maker Huawei.

The six — including the heads of the CIA, FBI, NSA and the director of national intelligence — first expressed their distrust of Apple-rival Huawei and fellow Chinese telecom company ZTE in reference to public servants and state agencies.

When prompted during the hearing, all six indicated they would not recommend private citizens use products from the Chinese companies.”

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/02/13/chinas-hauwei-top-us-intelligence-chiefs-caution-americans-away.html

Here is proof of a long-term relationship between Telus and Hauwei. It may not be limited to microcells.

TELUS and Huawei Continue to Lead the Way in Canada’s Journey to 5G with Innovative Small-cell Deployment

“”We are delighted that TELUS continues to deploy Huawei’s innovative small-cell solutions to support their heterogeneous network and achieve data rates exceeding 1 Gbps with the Huawei LampSite solution,” said Ritchie Peng, President of Huawei Small Cell Product Line. “With data rates exceeding 1 Gbps with Huawei’s LampSite Solution, TELUS customers can experience these speeds everywhere thanks to the collaboration and experiential learning in the TELUS 5G Living Lab’.”

Earlier this year, TELUS and Huawei announced the successful live deployment of a 3GPP-oriented network [https://www.telus.com/en/about/news-and-events/media-releases/successful-5g-pilot-places-canada-at-the-forefront-of-global-wireless]. Since, TELUS has also announced that it has successfully tested other technologies vital to 5G, such as Licensed-Assisted Access (LAA) [https://www.telus.com/en/about/news-and-events/media-releases/leading-edge-technology-achieves-wireless-speeds].”

Missing Mechanisms of Interaction, Mechanisms of Action, Causation & Biological Plausibility Linking EMFs To Adverse Health Effects, Building & Infrastructure Damage, Crop Failures, Economic Failure, Climate Change, National Security Emergency For EVERY Country

EMFs

This is a post for people, professionals, elected officials, industries, insurers, lawyers, academia, medicine, unions, all sciences, construction, religion and literally everyone on the planet. This isn’t a debate and any group or professionals wanting to dispute this has to prove electricity does not exist. On top of that they need to defend a plastic body part with liquid in it used for the limits of human exposure as science when it should be an aquarium.

Health Canada, FCC and IEEE all use the same garbage “science” standards making this applicable globally. Governments, utilities and industries were warned about moving forward with a very dangerous technology as applied when exposure codes admitted critical science was missing.

This post will not link any health studies or reporting on health effects because it is specifically the causal evidence and mechanisms linking EMFs to adverse health effects that had been missing for decades.

All applicable professionals including academia have to expand on this in their capacity and failure to do so will bring unrealized consequences with liability. Global exposure codes state that despite the 1000s of articles on health effects, causation and biological plausibility was not understood .

Professor John Orr of West Polytech in Worcester was interviewed on RF EMFs but would not take questions from outside callers. The radio host asked Orr if microwaves were dangerous? His reply was yes “if you were inside the microwave oven or the microwave was leaking.(meaning exposure to microwave EMFs). Orr didn’t understand Worcester and beyond were inside the microwave oven.

The RF EMFs used by your microwave for heating food or drink are the same RF EMFs used for wireless communication. The bottom line is you are in the microwave oven and in the wireless electrical circuit. The bigger plan is for the entire planet to be in a man made microwave oven for ease of communication with wireless devices. The qualified problem is there is nothing on the planet electrically compatible with these RF EMFs except the end use device. When you think of electrical compatibility, keep it simple in that your car battery can not be put in your flashlight.

Google and Uber for one example are competing for driverless cars. Big rigs will be wireless in time and the point is there will be no consumers, profit with these companies killing their own. The EMF coverage will kill all humans and biology without exception.

Google as another example has created a man-made microwave oven from 59,500 feet(11.3 miles) so Puerto Rico can have Wi-Fi and email. Imagine a microwave oven 11.3 miles in height. Meteorologists have not been informed of this catastrophic heating of the atmosphere the entire planet shares. The high speed oscillations of the man-made microwave oven will heat the atmosphere over the EMF coverage area. That heats the atmosphere causing climate change and contributing to  hurricanes that devastated Puerto Rico. Separate from that, the population of Puerto Rico is inside a man-made microwave oven so they can get emails. The health effects include the nervous, hormonal and immune systems being compromised. Are those compromising health effects contributing to flu severity and lives lost?

The unprecedented global emergency is because the Specific Absorption Rate(SAR) and the test using the plastic head with liquid has been used to supersede all jurisdictions, all laws, all sciences when it isn’t applicable or science. The SAR name itself is an admission of exposure and harm.

When asked if this would be like tobacco and illegal in time, imagine a baby smoking from conception. The Government of Canada revised Safety Code 6 and in that revision have determined pregnant women and children are ok with 24/7 electromagnetic radiation exposure. That isn’t definable as sustainable in the Auditor General Act.

People are NOT electrohypersensitive(EHS) when hit by these EMFs, missing science created that diagnosis. Here is a quote from page 7 of Safety Code 6(2009).
“The specific biological responses to RF energy are generally related to the rate of energy absorbed. The rate and distribution of RF energy absorption depends strongly on the frequency, intensity and orientation of the incident fields as well as the body size and its constitutive properties (dielectric constant and conductivity)”

Causation and biological plausibility linking RF EMFs to adverse health effects was found, reported and qualified for lecture for Continuing Medical Educationcredits required for ongoing medical licensing. That CME program was applicable to health professionals in North America but should be applicable to the world now. There is no higher educational standard and global medical professionals have been undermined. Jurisdictions and academia across the globe should be contacting the admin at the Integrative Health Forum(IHF Global) and associates to facilitate accredited medical education programs. It is the most advanced medical education program in the world and there are no sales or conflicts of interest. The health education admin is open to the idea of having different professions or public attend the amazing 2 day program BUT they have stated this forum is medical education now and not a debate.

The last 4 weeks have been a brain drain putting together documents that will be applicable to every person, industry, academia and jurisdictions globally. Courts will have the causal evidence needed and the FCC, Health Canada as well as IEEE will have to defend the plastic head and potatoes representing biology. The document for government jurisdictions will be sent to them on February 13, 2018 and made available to the public on February 14, 2018. For those that think this isn’t a big deal, what do you think President Trump will do when he hears his own investments have been undermined by a plastic head or potato as science?

Here is a picture of the test used for limits of human exposure and what the FCC and others will have to defend. Boeing Engineers used potatoes for Wi-Fi safety on aircraft.

Sam Phantom Model
Specific Absorption Rate Test with Temperature Probe in Liquid.

The document that will be released will provide lawyers and courts the background they need to do their job without people spending 100s of 1000s of dollars while lawyers learn about electricity. Ken Mack and his wife had several people die on their properties because of the EMFs. They spent over $200,000 dollars but couldn’t proceed because their legal team required the causal evidence. That causal evidence is in the document.

I can not apologize enough for what has happened to people in the microwave oven, it never should have happened. These EMFs will not discriminate who they kill and there will be no elite that have a place to hide.

In 39 years of doing work that included taking on technical problems the whole world missed, I never thought our team would be doing documents electrically qualifying end of life.

Wireless communication is electromagnetic radiation inducing electrical currents and that changes all sciences globally.

The Truth About The Toronto Police, The Quebec Court House Shooting & “Peoplekind”

Being a police officer used to be a respected profession where children looked up to them as their hero’s…oh how times have changed. Friendly smiles and helpful gestures were soon replaced with black ski masks and covert operations and now the police officer of the 21st century is hardly recognizable as they’ve slowly become more and more militarized. In this video Dan Dicks of Press For Truth goes over some of the issue with the Toronto Police Force in particular as well as an incident that happened in a Quebec courthouse just last week where an officer shot a man in the head inside the courthouse.

Fishy business TURNING GARBAGE INTO FOOD

In fact, things here are much, much worse because standards are even lower and corruption higher.

Garbage fish waste – valued at 15 cents per kilo – is converted to processed food “fish” dishes like cheap fish sticks, fish balls, and mixed dishes that have “some” fish in them.

Bottom line advice:

If you can’t see the actual fish fillet on your plate, you might well be eating fish pulp that used to be garbage.

One out of three pre-prepared processed fish dishes are mislabeled.

Believe it or not – credit where credit is due – McDonald’s Fish Fillet is made of 100% certified ocean-caught Alaskan Pollock.

Incriminating documents reveal Monsanto knew they were poisoning the environment with their PCBs

monsanto incriminating pic

Wednesday, February 07, 2018 by: 
Tags: 

(Natural News) Documents that have come to light recently show that Monsanto continued to make and sell polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) for eight years after they knew that they were hazardous to the environment and human health.

The firm was already exposed for this practice when internal documents were digitized and posted as part of the Poison Papers Project, but notes from a Monsanto meeting that were recently posted on Toxicdocs show just how callous they were about the matter.

Monsanto set up a meeting on August 25, 1969, to address the problem of their PCBs in the environment. During the meeting, executives set out three approaches they could use. The first was to go out of business. The second? “Sell the hell out of them [PCBs].” Yes, you read that correctly. Their third option was “Try to stay in business in controlled applications.”

The hand-written meeting notes can be viewed on the ToxicDocs database for free, along with millions of other incriminating documents showing corporate misconduct when it comes to asbestos, lead poisoning, and other toxins.

One would like to imagine that a company selling toxic wares would pull them from the market or close down altogether, but that’s not what happened here. In fact, in the year and a half that followed, Monsanto moved more PCBs than they ever had in the past, selling “the hell out of them” indeed. It wasn’t until 1977 that they finally stopped selling them.

Monsanto knew about the dangers of PCBs for a long time

Monsanto started manufacturing PCBs back in 1935, eventually dominating global production. The chemicals were used as lubricators in electrical equipment and as coolants. They were also found in paints, flame retardants, and refrigerators. They break down extremely slowly, and they continue to affect the environment to this day while also accumulating in the food chain.

A different internal memo that was released in the Poison Papers dated September 1969 says that Monsanto’s strategy for dealing with PCB leakages in the San Francisco Bay, Great Lakes, and Gulf Coast areas should be to “let govt prove its case on a case by case basis.”

They go on to add: “We can prove some things are ok at low concentration. Give Monsanto some defense. We can’t defend vs everything. Some animals or fish or insects will be harmed.”

The documents also show that the company admitted later that year that PCBs are highly toxic to birds.

Another document, their pollution abatement plan, stated: “The evidence proving the persistence of these compounds and their universal presence in the environment is beyond questioning.”

Their knowledge of the harms of PCBs actually goes back much further, however. In 1937, autopsies showed that three of the firm’s workers died from serious liver damage caused by handling the substance.

A document from September 1955 read: “We know Aroclors [PCBs] are toxic but the actual limit has not been precisely defined.”

Company must answer for its misdeeds in court

Monsanto is facing PCB contamination lawsuits from authorities in Oakland, Berkeley, San Diego, Portland, San Jose, Seattle, Long Beach, and Spokane, among other places. The state of Oregon recently filed a $100 million lawsuit against Monsanto for cleaning up the damage caused to the state’s rivers and waterways, while the state of Washington is also suing the firm for PCB cleanup costs to the tune of billions of dollars.

In May 2016, a jury in St. Louis awarded plaintiffs suffering from non-Hodgkin lymphoma due to PCB exposure $46.5 million in damages from Monsanto and three other companies.

CREEPY: Woman Sees Man Watching Her While On Facebook With Nephew!

Josh Sigurdson reports on a creepy story from the Free Thought Project where a woman who was talking to her nephew on Facebook messenger tried to send a video only to see a video of a man watching her. She pressed the record button down and the man’s face came up. An obvious hacking glitch. The woman, terrified quickly turned off her phone and taped off the camera. What’s also weird is that people can be heard talking behind the man. Could it be a hacking firm? Could it just be a guy in his dorm room? Could it be a crossed wire? Could it be an elaborate government hacking operation? What do you think? Comment below!

Locals Supporting Locals group helps ‘Angel’ Penticton Castanet News

Local group helps ‘Angel’

Colton Davies – Feb 2, 2018 / 5:00 am | Story

Penticton resident Angelique Nelson, also known as “Angel,” will have the biggest day of her life later this year.

Angel, who was born with cerebral palsy, is soon marrying her partner Aaron.

And she’ll have a big financial boost from Locals Supporting Locals to make it happen.

The group’s founder, Kevin Proteau, is holding a launch party next week for his fifth annual calendar, which he introduced in December.

“They’re very unique calendars. As one of our sponsors said, this is the mother of all calendars,” Proteau said.

The calendar highlights events and festivals in the South Okanagan and features individual small businesses.

Angel is also working for Locals Supporting Locals to sell calendars with Proteau in the community, who said she’ll receive half of the profits.

Please call 250-770-9789 if you would like Angel to deliver a calendar to you personally  

“Kevin was looking for someone who would love to sell the calendars,” Angel said. “Well I’m a people person, as Aaron knows… I’ve been looking for another job because we love to travel.”

“I’m just hoping she doesn’t outsell me,” Proteau quipped.

Proteau is hoping his calendar launch party, taking place on Feb. 10 at Penticton’s Craft Corner Kitchen can sell out. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

The event will include about $2,000 dollars in prizes and will feature local performers, including acoustic artist Jarrett Lobley.

“I think in this world of globalization, we need to kind of break down into smaller pieces and take care of each other more,” Lobley said.

More information on the launch event can be found here.

5G: Cancer, Cell Phone, Wi-Fi, Cell Tower, Wireless Radiation Health Effects

Please look at this short video in which Kevin Mottus of the California Brain Tumor Association is encouraging people to get involved in getting laws changed that allow telecoms to hide the fact that cell phones, microcells, etc. are dangerous. As in BC, the various associations, including the Cancer Society, say that rates of cancer are decreasing. Overall I’m sure that’s true, probably in large part because fewer people are smoking. But they refuse to provide statistics about brain cancers. In prior updates, I’ve shared info about the number of brain cancers, especially glioblastomas, increasing dramatically especially in younger people. Even children are suffering from brain cancer. Why aren’t statistics being released? Are they even being kept? Is it possible that the influence of the telecoms is so strong that these cancers are not being tracked?  We do need to mobilize, as suggested in this video. The politicians are afraid of upsetting their lobbyists. The Cancer Societies have major conflicts of interests. It’s up to us.

Supporting Locals and giving voice to business, farmers and individuals in harmony with local values!
