ELECTROSMOG – The Health Effects of Microwave Pollution

Safer Technology Aotearoa New Zealand

This book was written by Dr Susan Pockett to explain how the telecommunications industry and the military have combined to blanket the world with electromagnetic waves of a sort that have never before been seen on planet Earth. Life evolved in the complete absence of these waves, so this development has become a serious bio-hazard.” 

Part I of the book first describes in a non-­‐mathematical way the technology underpinning the problem, then shows how public exposure limits have been manipulated, all over the world, through the orchestrated capture of regulatory agencies by the very industry those agencies were set up to regulate.

Part II then summarises a huge volume of scientific evidence showing that exposure to power densities of pulsed radiofrequency radiation a tiny fraction of those permitted by the aforementioned, industry-­‐manipulated, public exposure limits actually causes cancer, DNA damage, diabetes, immune system and cardiovascular problems in humans – and similarly serious problems for wildlife (birds, bees and trees).

Finally, Part III discusses some of the biological mechanisms mediating these health harms, to counter the absurd suggestion that if we are unsure HOW such damage occurs, we should rightfully ignore all evidence that it does occur. No specific fixes for this increasingly inescapable problem are proposed.

Basically, the only fix for corruption (and its ugly spawn, propaganda and lies) is determined intervention by humans who have lost neither their common sense nor their moral compass. Such people appear to be increasingly rare – but do still exist.

European Parliament: 5G Health Effects and Environmental Impacts

Over the last decades, novel wireless communication technologies, such as mobile telephones, cellular networks and Wi-Fi, have been developed at unparalleled speed. However, 5G, along with 3G and 4G, may also pose threats to human health and the environment. This article outlines the two STOA studies presented to the EU Parliament, which take stock of our present understanding of the impacts of 5G on health and the environment.

6G – Closer than you think

All over the world, scientists, governments, corporations and consumers are collaborating to turn the Earth into a giant computer, fulfilling the warning predictions of the great Swedish physicist and Nobel laureate Hannes Alfvén. Written under the pen name Olof Johannesson, his 1966 science fiction novel Sagan om den stora datamaskinen (The Tale of the Great Computer) predicted smart phones, the internet, fitbits, artificial intelligence, chip implants enabling direct human-to-computer communication, the colonization of Mars, and ultimately the replacement of humankind entirely by computers, which regarded human beings as just one step on the evolutionary path to themselves.

The science of spin: targeted strategies to manufacture doubt with detrimental effects on environmental and public health

The telecommunications industry has adopted strategies used by other industries that market products which pollute the environment and harm the health of humans and other species. The Telecom industry utilize all 28 of the unique tactics discussed in this paper to manufacture doubt about the preponderance of the peer-reviewed science which finds exposure to low-intensity wireless radiation harmful, and to justify the continued adoption of inadequate radio frequency safety limits by the WHO and most national governments.
