Fortune: Ford to deploy 5G in ALL US vehicles by early 2022 (frying your brain while you drive)

Fortune: Ford to deploy 5G in ALL US vehicles by early 2022 (frying your brain while you drive)

Orignal Posting 17/01/19

Ford has announced that it will deploy cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology in all of its new American car models from the year 2022 onward. The technology will enable vehicles to communicate with one another as well as traffic management infrastructure like traffic lights. Pedestrians will also have the ability to transmit their locations to cars, ostensibly boosting the safety of walkers and cyclists. The car maker claims it will be useful for situations like four-way stops, enabling vehicles to communicate with one another about who has the right of way. It could also be used for vehicles that are involved in accidents to give approaching vehicles advance status of the situation so they can avoid danger. Traffic lights, meanwhile, would be able to send drivers signals to alert them when they are about to turn red or green or to let them know if they are about to run a red light. In a Medium post announcing the move, Ford Connected Vehicle Platform and Product Executive Director Don Butler expressed Ford’s excitement over the technology, but he failed to mention the huge downside of all of this connectivity. Butler wrote that the effort’s timing was “perfect” in light of the cellular industry’s push for building 5G networks, but what price will we all pay for this? For all of its greater speeds and connectivity, 5G could put our health at very serious risk. 5G already causing health problems, and many dangers are still unknown One advocate, Kevin Mottus, has likened 5G’s effects to “microwaving our population,” and hundreds of scientists and doctors share his view. 5G works using millimeter waves, which use a higher frequency than microwaves and are more easily absorbed by their surroundings. This means that more towers will be needed. It has been estimated that “small cell” towers will need to be placed approximately every 800 feet to provide connectivity, so exposure will be very difficult to avoid with one small cell for roughly every 12 houses. What happens when your body absorbs these millimeter waves? While we have no idea what the long-term effects of this new technology might be, people in areas where 5G testing is underway have already been reporting a host of side effects, even after just a small amount of exposure. Some San Francisco firefighters reported memory loss and confusion after 5G was placed in their fire house; their symptoms only subsided when they transferred to new stations. Others have reported miscarriages, insomnia, and nosebleeds due to 5G exposure. With thousands of small cells placed in every city, where will people go if they want to get away from it? Scientist Mark Steele said: “We are seeing babies dying in the womb as these transmitters are situated outside people’s bedroom windows. It’s a humanitarian crisis.” It also stands to reason that this is placing people at a tremendous risk of brain cancer. After all, its less-potent predecessors, 2G and 3G, have already been linked to the deadly disease. For reference, 5G is 100 times faster than 4G. A large-scale government study uncovered a link between cell phone radiation and brain cancer as well as heart tumors at lower speeds, so now the risk will be even greater. It’s pretty ironic that Ford is touting the new technology as something that benefits people. While you might be somewhat less likely to be involved in a car accident if you use it (although no one can say for sure), you’ll be frying your brain while you drive and could find yourself dealing with brain cancer – hardly a trade-off most people would be willing to make

Mobile Phone Base Station Tower Settings Adjacent to School Buildings: Impact on Students' Cognitive Health. - PubMed - NCBI

Mobile Phone Base Station Tower Settings Adjacent to School Buildings: Impact on Students' Cognitive Health. - PubMed - NCBI Abstract The use of mobile phones has remarkably increased and become a basic need of daily life. Increasing subscriptions of mobile phones boost the installation of mobile phone base station towers (MPBSTs) in crowded commercial and residential areas including near school buildings. This study investigated the impact of exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic field (RF-EMF) radiation generated by MPBSTs on cognitive functions. Two hundred and seventeen volunteer male students aged between 13 and 16 registered from two different intermediate schools: 124 students were from School 1 and 93 students were from School 2. The MPBSTs were located within 200 m from the schoolbuildings. In School 1, RF-EMF was 2.010 µW/cm2 with a frequency of 925 MHz and in School 2, RF-EMF was 10.021 µW/cm2 with a frequency of 925 MHz. Students were exposed to EMFR for 6 hr a day, 5 days a week for a total period of 2 years. The Narda Safety Test Solution device SRM-3006 was used to measure RF-EMF in both schools, and cognitive functions tasks were measured by the Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery (CANTAB). Significant impairment in Motor Screening Task (MOT; p = .03) and Spatial Working Memory (SWM) task ( p = .04) was identified among the group of students who were exposed to high RF-EMF produced by MPBSTs. High exposure to RF-EMF produced by MPBSTs was associated with delayed fine and gross motor skills, spatial working memory, and attention in school adolescents compared to students who were exposed to low RF-EMF.

Microwaves Linked to Brain Damage in US Diplomats Also Cause Cancer and Brain Damage in Large Laboratory Study

Microwaves Linked to Brain Damage in US Diplomats Also Cause Cancer and Brain Damage in Large Laboratory Study US Scientist Sets The Record Straight On The US National Toxicology Program Cell Phone Radiation Study In a new article now published in Environmental Research, Ronald L Melnick, PhD, the senior US toxicologist who led the design of the National Toxicology Program (NTP) study on cell phone radiation, explains that the NTP found “clear evidence” of increased cancers (gliomas in the brain and Schwannomas in the heart) in animals and why this is directly relevant to evaluating human risks from cell phone radiation. In addition, Melnick explains how widely circulated criticisms of the NTP study are mistaken and “unfounded.” Melnick notes the striking parallels between human studies of regular cell phone users and the NTP experiment with rodents. Both the human and rodent studies found elevated rates of the same tumor types. The new paper is titled, “Commentary on the Utility of the National Toxicology Program Study on Cell Phone Radiofrequency Radiation Data for Assessing Human Health Risks Despite Unfounded Criticisms Aimed at Minimizing the Findings of Adverse Health Effects.” “Even a small increase in cancer risk could have a serious health impact due to the widespread use of cell phones. Clear information on how to reduce cell phone exposure should be promoted by health and regulatory agencies, especially for children and pregnant women, as well as for those that already have cancer,” concludes Melnick. He adds that the NTP study not only found cell phone radiation increased tumors in the heart and brain but also induced heart damage (cardiomyopathy of the right ventricle in male and female rats) and DNA damage in brain cells of rats and mice. “The front page reports from the Pulitzer Prize winning New York Times reporter William J. Broad about sickened American diplomats in China and Cuba implicate microwave radiation as a cause of brain damage,” stated Dr. Devra Davis, referring to the work of University of California San Diego medical researcher Dr. Beatrice Golomb. “The NTP found a type of brain damage in rats exposed to a form of microwave radiation that invisibly pummels billions of humans every day. If targeted microwave radiation can damage diplomats then what does more diffuse radiation do to our children and us? Before we blanket our nation with 5G, yet another layer of microwave radiation, we must critically examine its impact on our health and environment.” “We can no longer state that adverse effects are not replicated. Increases in tumors from cell phone radiation have indeed been replicated in several studies at this time,” states Melnick. He notes that the Ramazzini Institute large-scale rodent study found increased Schwannomas in the heart at much lower radiation levels than the NTP study. Further, Melnick indicates that other studies, such as Lerchl et al., 2015, found radiofrequency radiation at significantly lower doses than the NTP study promoted cancer development, with evidence for a heightened synergistic impact when combined with a known carcinogen. Melnick presented scientific data debunking eight widely circulated criticisms of the NTP study. Those rejected criticisms included the notion that rat studies are not relevant to humans, that tumors occurred only in male rats, that the exposures in the study were extraordinarily high, and that the study had a higher chance of producing a falsely positive result. Regarding the allegation that NTP radiation exposure levels “were much higher than human exposure limits (19 to 75 times),” Melnick explained that the NTP exposures were actually “similar to or only slightly higher” than limits in US regulations on radiofrequency radiation exposures to human brain tissue when a cell phone is held next to the head, and they were below regulatory limits for occupational exposures. Melnick also detailed that since 1996 the US Federal Communications Commission cell phone regulations have been based on the “now proven wrong” assumption that low level “non thermal” radiofrequency radiation (RFR) could not cause harmful effects. “This assumption of safety from non thermal RFR levels is frankly wrong. The non thermal effects of cell phone RFR include tumor development, heart damage, DNA damage to brain, tumor promotion and oxidative stress.” Oxidative DNA damage is shown to be an effect of RFR in numerous research studies and can lead to genomic changes in animals and humans that can result in cancer development. Many human carcinogens, including asbestos and arsenic, are now understood to induce oxidative stress even though they do not directly cause DNA damage. “Thus, without causing direct DNA damage, RFR may induce oxidative stress and thereby initiate or promote tumor development,” Melnick explained. Ronald L Melnick, PhD, was a senior scientist for 28 years with National Institutes of Health leading studies on numerous industrial chemicals and led the design of the National Toxicology Program/National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences’ Cell Phone Radiofrequency Radiation Studies. Melnick was Director of Special Programs in the Environmental Toxicology Program at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), National Institutes of Health, USA and is now retired and Senior Advisor to Environmental Health Trust. The paper entitled, “Commentary on the Utility of the National Toxicology Program Study on Cell Phone Radiofrequency Radiation Data for Assessing Human Health Risks Despite Unfounded Criticisms Aimed at Minimizing the Findings of Adverse Health Effects” is published online in the peer reviewed journal Environmental Research at https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0013935118304973?via%3Dihub About Environmental Research Environmental Research publishes original reports describing studies of the adverse effects of environmental agents on humans and animals. The principal aim of the journal is to assess the impact of chemicals and microbiological pollutants on human health. Both in vivo and in vitro studies, focused on defining the etiology of environmentally induced illness and to increase understanding of the mechanisms by which environmental agents cause disease, are especially welcome. Investigations on the effects of global warming/climate change on the environment and public health, as well as those focused on the effects of anthropogenic activities on climate change are also of particular interest.
