STANZ Wired Newsletter #6 Spring 2021

Despite the lack of newsletters so far this year the STANZ Committee has been busy behind the scenes laying the foundations for the future success of the Society and these activities can be seen in the attached newsletter.

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.

Olle Johansson on wireless radiation, immunity and health

Does wireless radiation affect a person’s immune system? Absolutely! Are these effects psychosomatic? Absolutely not! Professor Olle Johansson is a world authority on the effects of electromagnetic fields on the immune system and how they can impact on health. He has kindly shared his findings and his experience with us in an online interview

5G Risk: The Scientific Perspective

5G Risk: The Scientific Perspective Book. Compelling Evidence for eight Distinct Types of Great Harm Caused by Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Exposures and the Mechanism that Causes Them

Written and Compiled by Martin L. Pall, PhD. Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences – Washington State University

Firstenberg Newsletter: Cell Phone Apocalypse

“You are right to wonder how much radiation is a part of your illness. First and foremost, you should not ever use a cell phone or WiFi. Getting rid of all wireless on your person and in your home will make a tremendous difference in your health. A faraday pouch does not block all the radiation. A cell phone radiates even when it is off, as long as the battery is in it. And it takes your body several days to recover, even from a single two-minute phone call. No products will protect you from the radiation — if they do anything at all, those products are dangerous.”

Here’s What 6G Will Be, According to the Creator of Massive MIMO

What we’re really after is, what is the next level of human-to-human communication going to be? In one sense, 5G didn’t deliver any new level of human-to-human communication, because 4G, and then the early parts of 5G, enabled ubiquitous streaming video. The next level is obviously augmented reality, and making it good enough so that the other person is effectively in the same room as you. That would be a transformative thing. From a wireless communications perspective, this imposes simply staggering requirements.

5G AND THE MILITARY — Marriage Made in Hell

Unbeknownst to many people, 5G/satellites/CubeSats/data/AI/machine learning, and the internet of things are infiltrating and permeating the earth and skies and finding their way into the military as well. The aim for the US is to gain dominion over space for both commercial and military advantage; for whoever controls the high ground (space) controls Earth as well.

European Union Presentation of the studies: ‘Health impact of 5G’ and ‘Environmental impacts of 5G’ (online event)

Over the last decades, novel wireless communication technologies, such as mobile telephones, cellular networks and Wi-Fi, have been developed at unparalled speed., 5G, along with 3G and 4G, with which it will operate in parallel for several years, may also pose threats to human health. This event will present the results of two STOA studies, which take stock of our present understanding of the impacts of 5G on health and the environment.

STANZ Submission on Ōtautahi Christchurch Climate Strategy

STANZ Submission on Ōtautahi Christchurch Climate Strategy

STANZ has identified that the CCC needs to take into account the fact that the mobile wireless digital economy is resource intensive and a high greenhouse emitting sector of the economy that is unsustainable for the climate.

Manmade Electromagnetic Fields and Oxidative Stress—Biological Effects and Consequences for Health

A trend is emerging, which becomes clear even when taking these methodological weaknesses into account, i.e., that EMF exposure, even in the low dose range, may well lead to changes in cellular oxidative balance. Organisms and cells are able to react to oxidative stress, and many observations after EMF exposure point to an adaptation after a recovery phase. Adverse conditions, such as diseases (diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases), compromise the body’s defense mechanisms, including antioxidant protection mechanisms, and individuals with such pre-existing conditions are more likely to experience health effects. The studies show that very young or old individuals can react less efficiently to oxidative stress, which of course also applies to other stressors that cause oxidative stress.

Overview of the Health and Environmental Effects of 5G, 4G and Wireless Radiofrequency Radiation

This review by the Environmental Health Trust (USA) brings to your attention critical scientific and technical information justifying an immediate moratorium on 5G and wireless network densification as called for by more than 400 scientists and supported by thousands of medical doctors. Independent public health and medical experts worldwide are requesting immediate reductions in both public exposure to microwave wireless radiation and a halt to the densification of wireless infrastructure.

Netflix lays out plans to slash its greenhouse gas emissions

To meet its deadline next year, the company is primarily relying on offsetting its emissions, a strategy with a checkered history when it comes to how well it actually slows down climate change. But many environmental advocates have pressured companies to do more to stop polluting in the first place, rather than relying on trees to clean up the mess.
