Most of you who have read this blog are aware that the Environmental Health Trust, Children’s Health Advocacy and other petitioners have won their case against the FCC. They argued that the 1996 FCC standards, which the FCC reviewed between 2013 and 2019 but left unchanged, are outdated and do not take into account decades of studies showing harm at levels below FCC limits. The judges agreed and ordered the FCC to review the evidence. They will either have to adjust their criteria or provide a rational explanation as to why they refuse to do so.
This is an important legal victory, but has it been reported by the mainstream media? you did not. It wasn’t in any of the major newspapers, and it wasn’t on TV. For the general public, the FCC’s limits are secure and they can continue to use their wireless devices — and give them to their children — without a care. The mainstream media, which invests heavily in wireless technology and is more concerned with the stock market than with human health or the environment, has once again failed to provide the general public with the information it should know, and have a right to know. So what can we do about it?
Although this good news is on every anti-wireless website, the general public may not go to those sites. We must take it to them, and we must do it the old-fashioned way, using the printed word. So I’d like to ask everyone reading this to print out the short piece I’ve written below and have it hand delivered throughout your neighborhood. You can put it in people’s mailboxes or stick it behind car windshield wipers along the street. Some people may throw it away without reading it, but most people will at least take a quick look at it, and many will read it.
It doesn’t matter if you live in the US, UK, Canada or anywhere else; This is global news that affects everyone and people everywhere should know about it. You can make a big difference by doing this, and it won’t take much effort. If the mainstream media isn’t doing their job, we must do it for them.
You can also send a copy of this to your local government representatives. You can email it or mail it a hard copy. Personally, I think people are more interested in the printed word, but that’s your choice. This is the text: you can copy and paste it or download it to https://app.box.com/s/brf8z0pja5bpog2yomxbzs73yufd1mrp
Are your children at risk from wireless technology? The US Federal Court criticizes the FCC for ignoring decades of scientific studies showing harm to health.
On August 14, 2021, the Children’s Health Advocacy Fund and the other plaintiffs won a major victory in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on behalf of Children, Pregnant Women, and the Environment. The court ordered the FCC to explain why it ignored decades of research showing harm from radio radiation, especially to young children and fetuses, when it revised its standards between 2013-2019.
Despite an exponential increase in radiofrequency (RF) radiation in the environment, the FCC left its original 1996 standards unchanged. Several independent scientific studies show that serious harm can occur at radio frequency levels below what the FCC considers “safe.” The FCC also ignored the 2011 classification by the World Health Organization’s IARC of radio frequency as a possible carcinogen. Now the FCC must review these studies and either justify their safety standards or modify them according to the evidence.
Such a landmark decision should have been reported in the major media around the world, but it was not, with the exception of Italy, Israel and Nigeria. why not? Owners of the mainstream media want the stock market to stay on the upswing; They have invested heavily in technology stocks and rolled out 5G. They don’t want the public to know how dangerous this technology really is. Radiation standards are pretty much the same in all English-speaking countries and around the world, so this decision affects everyone, no matter where you live. Many famous scientists say that current radio radiation standards do not protect you, your children, or the environment.
Dr. Devra Davis, president of the Environmental Health Fund, says,
If cell phones were a drug, they would have been banned years ago. 5G will never be allowed to be commercialized. An ever-growing body of published studies — ignored by the Federal Communications Commission — clearly indicates that exposure to radio radiation can lead to many health effects, especially for children. Research shows that radio radiation increases the risk of cancer, harms memory, alters brain development, affects reproductive health, and much more. Furthermore, the way the FCC measures our daily exposure to cell phone radiation and cell phone towers is fatally flawed and provides a false sense of security.”
The court ordered the FCC to “(1) provide a rationale for its decision to retain its test procedures to determine whether cell phones and other portable electronic devices comply with its guidelines, (ii) address the effects of radio frequency radiation on children, and the health effects of prolonged exposure the extent of radiofrequency radiation, the ubiquity of radio equipment, and other technological developments that have occurred since the Commission’s latest guidance was updated, and (3) addressing the effects of radiofrequency radiation on the environment.”
People use wireless devices, they live near wireless infrastructure like cell towers, smart meters and Wi-Fi routers, and they give their kids wireless devices because they assume these things are safe. They assume that government bodies such as the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that have set standards for radiation will not allow such infrastructure and such devices if they are harmful. That’s not true, and after reviewing 11,000 pages of evidence, a federal court just said so.
What can you do? Avoid using wireless technology as much as possible, and above all, keep children safe by turning off Wi-Fi at home and not allowing them to use wireless devices. This advice also applies to pregnant women. If you live outside the United States, request a similar review by your country’s regulatory body.
