My note: I have heard from some people with electromagnetic illness who tried living in Green Bank, West Virginia in the midst of the National Radio Quiet Zone did not eliminate their symptoms. Perhaps, this article explains why.

The Truth About the Quietest Town in America 

This story is adapted from The Quiet Zone: Unraveling the Mystery of a Town Suspended in Silence, by Stephen Kurczy. 

Seventeen antennas protruded from Chuck Niday’s Dodge Ram 2500. It reminded me of the wraith-hunting vehicle from Ghostbusters, and its aim was similar. Ghosts are all around us—at least in the form of invisible waves of electromagnetic radiation emanating from power lines and Wi-Fi routers, flying through walls and zooming across the sky—and Niday’s job was to track them down. His truck’s main antenna picked up signals from 25 megahertz to 4 gigahertz, while smaller antennas operated as a direction-finding array. “Through some method, which I believe involves witchcraft,” he said, “it comes up with a direction for the signal we’re looking for.”

Niday was heading out on patrol of Green Bank, West Virginia, to keep tabs on radio noise that might interfere with the half-dozen giant, dish-shaped telescopes looming behind us at the nation’s oldest federal radio astronomy observatory. Operating electrical equipment within 10 miles of here was illegal if it disrupted the telescopes, punishable by a state fine of $50 per day. Further safeguarding the observatory was a surrounding 13,000-square-mile National Radio Quiet Zone—an area larger than the combined landmass of Connecticut and Massachusetts—which limited cell service and all kinds of wireless communications systems. Theoretically, you couldn’t turn on a smartphone in town without alerting Niday.

We hopped in the truck. Wiring snaked from the roof down to a stack of electronics and computer monitors in the cab. “Footloose” played on an AM/FM radio. Niday adjusted the dials on a computer to look for signals in the 2.4 gigahertz frequency: Wi-Fi. He shifted into drive.

As we exited the observatory’s parking lot, the truck’s computer monitor started bleeping angrily. Before we reached the main road, we picked up 13 wireless signals. Within a half mile, we found 66 signals. Niday’s gadgetry was going berserk. But instead of jumping out of the truck to ticket Wi-Fi offenders, he simply took note of the sources of radio noise and kept driving, unfazed.

Within five miles, we tallied more than 200 signals, some coming from the homes of staff living on the observatory’s own property—a blatant violation of the facility’s regulations. As I observed from the backseat, I wondered, How is this called the quietest town in America?

I had first come to Green Bank a few months earlier, in March of 2017, on something of a pilgrimage with my girlfriend (now wife), Jenna.

Driving into town, we passed the area’s quiet authority: the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope, a 485-foot-tall tangle of white beams holding a giant dish the size of two football fields. This washbasin for Godzilla sat at the bottom of a 4-mile-long valley surrounded by mountains nearly 5,000 feet tall, which created a natural barrier against the outside world’s noise and helped isolate this remote area. Three-fifths of the surrounding county was state or federal forest, thick with mountain laurel and, in warmer months, teeming with mushrooms, ramps, ginseng, goldenseal, and sassafras. Its 941 square miles had a total of three traffic lights, one weekly newspaper, one high school, and a couple roadside pay phones.

The population density of about nine people per square mile was the lowest in West Virginia and one of the lowest anywhere east of the Mississippi River. Going to Walmart was a hundred-mile round trip that required traversing some of the Mountain State’s tallest peaks. Outsiders were considered “flatlanders” or “come-heres.” Locals were “mountain people” who lived in evocative-sounding hamlets such as Stony Bottom, Clover Lick, Thorny Creek, Briery Knob, and Green Bank, with that last name holding an almost mythical allure as a place where the grass was greener and life fuller. Four hours from Washington, DC, Green Bank sounded like a modern-day Walden that could free Jenna and me from the exasperating demands of being always online and reachable. Visiting was to be a respite from our digital lives.

In fact, the quiet had attracted a number of outsiders over the decades. The early astronomers’ ranks had included Frank Drake, who in 1960 conducted humanity’s first formal search for extraterrestrial intelligence using a Green Bank telescope. Secretive military operations also found fertile ground in the Quiet Zone, enabling the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on radio communications from a nearby station in Sugar Grove. During the counterculture revolution, hippies and back-to-the-landers flooded the county in search of a quieter way of living, among them a long-haired doctor named Hunter “Patch” Adams who purchased 310 acres with the stated mission of opening a free medical hospital. Up the road, an infamous white supremacist named William Luther Pierce would also find refuge, purchasing a 346-acre mountainside to build a combination country retreat, business headquarters, and militia base from which to inspire a “white awakening.”

The area had also attracted a sex cult, a racist serial killer, and, most recently, people with a mysterious illness called electromagnetic hypersensitivity who described feeling ill when exposed to iPhones and smart meters, refrigerators and microwaves. (At the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, some people similarly claimed that cell towers and 5G cell service were somehow linked to the outbreak, particularly in cities.) In essence, they were allergic to modern life. Many were convinced they had nowhere to go but the Quiet Zone.

My own journey to the Quiet Zone had begun in 2009, when I got rid of my first and last mobile device, a silver Samsung flip phone. I had been working for the Cambodia Daily, a scrappy rag in Phnom Penh, and my cell phone had come to feel like an extension of myself. I slept with it. I ate with it. It was a social lifeline. It was also a source of anxiety. Desperate for a callback from a source, I would stare at the device, willing it to comply. I heard phantom rings and felt phantom vibrations. I was as dependent on my phone as a baby on a pacifier. The day I left Cambodia, I dropped my phone in a garbage can.

Back in the United States, I put off getting a replacement. It was a decision initially based on frugality, then fueled by stubbornness. I don’t like when people tell me what to do, and everyone was telling me to get a smartphone. Weeks without a phone turned into months, then years. I worked for the Christian Science Monitor in Boston, then moved to New York City to report on finance, then relocated to Brazil as a foreign correspondent, all without a phone. I signed up for a free Google “phone number” to make calls using my laptop. I used Skype. I got an iPod for podcasts. In emergency situations, I borrowed others’ cellphones, using them in the way people once used roadside pay phones. I recognize mobile devices can be useful—I just think they should be used sparingly.

I’ve come to see my phonelessness as a matter of personal liberty, a kind of Fourth Amendment fight for privacy and “the right to be let alone,” as phrased by the Boston lawyers Samuel Warren and Louis Brandeis in a famous Harvard Law Review article from 1890. The two railed against “recent inventions and business methods,” such as “instantaneous photographs” and “numerous mechanical devices” that “invaded the sacred precincts of private and domestic life.” What would they think of smartphones and their abuse of our attention and privacy? I saw myself as a disconnection crusader, a Don Quixote for the digital era, toiling against the tyranny of always-on mobile devices. (Never mind that Don Quixote was delusional.)

My mission was as futile as fighting windmills. Cellphones hardly existed two decades ago. By 2019, eight in 10 American adults owned a smartphone; in my own demographic of Americans aged 30 to 49, 92 percent owned smartphones. Whenever I walked into a public restroom, a guy at the neighboring stall held a device in his free hand. A colleague so vigorously swiped and typed on her iPhone that she injured her wrist and came into the office wearing a brace. My mother, a teacher, was encouraged to tweet from the classroom. My father, a minister, contended with congregants answering their phones during services. Jenna carried two smartphones, one personal and one provided by her employer so she could be reached any time of any day. “You can’t miss nobody in 2017,” the comedian Chris Rock said during a stand-up routine that year. “Not really. You can say it, but you don’t really miss the motherfucker, because you’re with them all the time. They’re in your fuckin’ pocket.”

This loss of radio quiet has coincided with a loss of audible quiet. In 2000, the director of the US National Park Service passed an ordinance on “soundscape preservation and noise management” that called for parks to document and work to preserve natural sounds. The directive expired in 2004. Three years later, when the iPhone debuted, Science reported that human-made noise pollution was “pervasive” in America’s protected areas. The acoustic ecologist Gordon Hempton believes a dozen places remain in the United States where a person can hear no man-made sounds for 15 minutes. More than annoying, such noise has been shown to increase the risk of heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and even cancer. The concurrent rise in radio noise has also had deadly effects, with heavy smartphone usage tied to depression, anxiety, sleep deprivation, teen suicides, and, unsurprisingly, motor vehicle accidents.

Wouldn’t there be fewer car crashes and deaths if it was impossible to drive and text at the same time? Wouldn’t all of us sleep better if we lived in a place without constant connectivity? Wouldn’t our lives be richer and our communities stronger if we weren’t always online? And if all these benefits of a less digitized life were true, wouldn’t Green Bank and the surrounding Quiet Zone be a kind of utopia?

Those questions led me into Appalachia, over snowy mountain passes and down steep switchbacks, into the rugged backcountry of Daniel Boone and Stonewall Jackson, to the heart of the National Radio Quiet Zone, in search of an alternative to our tech-obsessed, phone-addicted, attention-hijacked, doomscrolling society. When I first arrived in 2017, the observatory was hosting some 30 media visitors a year, with a regular stream of articles being published about the so-called Quietest Town in America. Busy days could see three film crews crowded atop the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope, all competing for footage of that most endangered of things: quiet.

After my initial visit to Green Bank with Jenna, I returned about a dozen times over the next three years for a series of extended stays, popping in so frequently that people asked if I’d moved there permanently. I joined a book club, helped build a house, foraged for ramps, and went target shooting with a 7-year-old. I frequented a small country church where the wall-mounted “Register of Attendance and Offering” was never updated; it always said there were 11 attendees and $79 in tithes, contributing to the feeling of time standing still, of being drawn into a quieter dimension.

It was also a place of contradictions. Soon after my patrol with Chuck Niday, CNN’s medical journalist Sanjay Gupta drove into Green Bank for an episode of Vital Signs. “National Radio Quiet Zone,” Gupta said to the camera, “that means there’s no cell service, there’s no Wi-Fi, there’s no radio. It’s just really quiet.” On his heels, Katie Couric visited for a National Geographic series. “Green Bank is a town where technology is almost completely banned,” she said in a bright voiceover when the series aired, later opining, “People here seem happy to follow the law of the land.”

Even the state’s highest-ranking officials fed into the quiet hype. “All people within a 20-mile radius of the facility cannot have any device that emits a noticeably high amount of electromagnetic radiation,” Senator Joe Manchin would write in a 2018 op-ed. “This includes WiFi routers, cell phones, and even microwaves. Yet, these faithful West Virginians have sacrificed all of these luxuries for the advancement of science.”

Teresa Mullen rolled her eyes at such language. The Green Bank resident and high school teacher had a microwave. She had a smartphone. She had Wi-Fi. She knew where to get a cell phone signal. “It’s not like we’re living some bohemian lifestyle,” she told me. Such was hardly a secret. A house across the street from the observatory had Wi-Fi with the network name “Screw you NRAO,” an unsubtle middle finger to the observatory’s calls for quiet. Green Bank’s health clinic had Wi-Fi. So did the senior center. “We’re not supposed to,” said John Simmons, the county’s director of senior programs and a former county commissioner, “but I think all that stuff about the noise levels is fabricated.”

As I dug into the issue, I found myself wading into a legal debate. Observatory staff and scientists initially told me in no uncertain terms that the facility could push back against any source of radio interference in town, be it Wi-Fi or a smartphone, a microwave or a malfunctioning electric blanket. But when I raised the issue with scientists and officials in the greater radio astronomy community, I was told that West Virginia’s law against radio noise was essentially toothless, meaning Niday had no power to crack down on Wi-Fi, smartphones, microwaves, and other reportedly “outlawed” electronics.

I would eventually bring the debate to Anthony Beasley, director of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) in Charlottesville, Virginia, which oversaw Green Bank’s operations from 1956 until 2016, when the two entities split. The NRAO still operates telescopes around the world and has a vested interest in maintaining the Quiet Zone. Beasley agreed there was ambiguity to the Quiet Zone regulations. But he said the argument was somewhat removed from reality. Even if the state and federal laws could be interpreted in their strictest possible way, it still wouldn’t make financial or logistical sense to hunt Wi-Fi up and down the valley. For a cash-strapped observatory fighting to merely stay open, why hire lawyers to prosecute Wi-Fi-users when that money could go toward scientific equipment, staff, and research?

“You’ve got to decide which hill you’re going to die on,” Beasley said. “Taking someone to court and potentially getting some kind of class action lawsuit going would be an incredible waste of time, in my opinion.”

On that point, everyone agreed. It was impossible to stop the wireless revolution.

During my patrol with Niday, we would have found even more signals had we driven a few miles toward his house. Even the Quiet Zone cop had Wi-Fi. “Technically” it wasn’t permitted, Niday admitted, “but I know how to break the rules.”

By 2019, Niday would tally about 175 hotspots within two miles and more than 350 within a 5-mile radius—more Wi-Fi signals than homes, if that was even possible. The 2.4 megahertz frequency band had become so polluted that astronomers had lost access to that window into the radio universe. Rather than a clean reading of cosmic radio waves, a chart would show an imperceptible scribble of noise from the town’s Wi-Fi.

The Quiet Zone was being breached. I felt that I’d stumbled into a pivotal place in the world and, perhaps, in the history of humanity: an area endangered not by climate change or gentrification but by the Fitbit on your wrist, the iPhone in your hand, the anticollision sensor in your car, the human desire to have what everybody else has. Would Green Bank be able to preserve the quiet? And if it couldn’t, what did that mean not just for my own quiet fight, but for anyone’s hope of finding refuge from the noise?

NEWS FROM LEGAL ACTION AGAINST 5G

“On August 13, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled that the FCC failed to provide a reasoned explanation for its determination that its current human exposure guidelines adequately protect the public against all the harmful effects of exposure to 5G, cell tower, cell phone and wireless technologies.”

This is a critically important, landmark, Appeal ruling in the US (August 13th 2021), which ought to have enormous global ramifications, for our case and for all those seeking to highlight the risks of human exposure to 5G and wireless technology radiation  –  where the court held that the safety limits used were both ‘arbitrary and capricious’ 

Whilst no two cases are factually identical, the principles are often similar. The obvious similarity is the manner in which authorities both side of the Atlantic have engaged in processes which have ignored studies about potential health harms. 

The core failures in the US case related to the process adopted by the Federal Communications Commission which disclosed –  (i) the absence of a reasoned record of review for the thousands of pages of submitted scientific evidence and most importantly (ii) the absence of a reasoned explanation for its assertion that it’s guidelines adequately protect against the harmful effects of exposure to radio frequency radiation.

The main grounds of our renewal for a court hearing strongly echo these points: 

  • This case concerns an important issue of public safety. It raises the risk to which members of the public, including particular vulnerable individuals, and children, are being exposed without having consented to or agreed to expose themselves to that risk; and without an adequate and proper consideration undertaken by the relevant safeguarding authorities of the creation of those man-made public health risks. 
  • Failure to, or abdication of responsibility to, review the scientific and available evidence as the body responsible for the safety of citizens / Failure to take account of evidence of the risk posed to human health by radiofrequency radiation, ‘RFR’, and/or 5G; 
  • Failure to undertake an effective independent and sufficiently informed assessment of the risks; 
  • Failure to implement effective safeguards to protect the public from the risks or potential risks, including those posed to children attending schools and nurseries and/or to those with a disability; 
  • Absence of sufficient measures to provide effective protection for children from the real risk of harm; 
  • The adoption of RFR exposure guidelines concerned with thermal effects only which do not suffice to discharge the duty to take all practicable steps to the greatest extent possible to protect against a violation; 
  • Failure to ensure or safeguard a safe environment for human health.

 

A petitioner in the US case forcefully summarised the outcome :-

                        ‘ This is a win for our children, our future, and our environment. The court’s  decision should be a wake up call worldwide ‘

From Environmental Health Trust:

 In Historic Decision, Federal Court Orders FCC to Explain Why It Ignored Scientific Evidence Showing Harm From Wireless Radiation

 United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit judges in favor of environmental health groups and petitioners; finds FCC violated the Administrative Procedure Act and failed to respond to comments on environmental harm.

Today, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled in the historic case EHT et al. v. the FCC that the December 2019 decision by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to retain its 1996 safety limits for human exposure to wireless radiation was “arbitrary and capricious.”  

  • The court held that the FCC failed to respond to “record evidence that exposure to RF radiation at levels below the Commission’s current limits may cause negative health effects unrelated to cancer.” 
  • Further, the agency demonstrated “a complete failure to respond to comments concerning environmental harm caused by RF radiation.” 

The court highlighted that the FCC failed to respond to approximately 200 comments on the record by people who experienced illness or injury from electromagnetic radiation sickness. 

The court ordered the commission to

  • “provide a reasoned explanation for its decision to retain its testing procedures for determining whether cell phones and other portable electronic devices comply with its guidelines”
  • “address the impacts of RF radiation on children, the health implications of long-term exposure to RF radiation, the ubiquity of wireless devices, and other technological developments that have occurred since the Commission last updated its guidelines”
  • “address the impacts of RF radiation on the environment.”

“We are delighted that the court upheld the rule of law and found that the FCC must provide a reasoned record of review for the thousands of pages of scientific evidence submitted by Environmental Health Trust and many other expert authorities in this precedent setting case. No agency is above the law. The American people are well served,” said Dr. Devra Davis, president of Environmental Health Trust. 

Edward B. Myers, attorney for Environmental Health Trust, the lead petitioner in the case, EHT et al. v. the FCC stated, “The court granted the petitions for review because, contrary to the requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), the commission failed to provide a reasoned explanation for its assertion that its guidelines adequately protect against the harmful effects of exposure to radiofrequency radiation.”

“I am very pleased to see that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit has ruled that the FCC ignored decades of studies about the potential health harms of cell phone radiation and must adequately review this material before making a decision about new regulations of cell phones,” said Dr. Jerome Paulson, former American Academy of Pediatrics Environmental Health Council Chair and now Professor Emeritus of Pediatrics and Environmental and Occupational Health at George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences and Milken Institute School of Public Health. “It is very important that the court ruled that the FCC must address the impacts of radiofrequency radiation on the health of children amassed since 1996.” The American Academy of Pediatrics’ submission to the FCC called for a review of safety limits to protect children and pregnant women. 

In overturning the FCC determination for its lack of reasoned decision making, the court wrote that the commission cannot rely on agencies like the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) if the FDA’s conclusions are provided without explanation.  

“While imitation may be the highest form of flattery, it does not meet even the low threshold of reasoned analysis required by the APA under the deferential standard of review that governs here. One agency’s unexplained adoption of an unreasoned analysis just compounds rather than vitiates the analytical void. Said another way, two wrongs do not make a right,” the court wrote. 

Download August 13, 2021 United States Court of Appeals, District of Columbia Circuit ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH TRUST, ET AL., PETITIONERS v. FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION AND UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

The landmark case centers around the FCC’s decision not to update its 1996 exposure limits for wireless radiation from cell phones, cell towers, and wireless devices. Environmental Health Trust experts have long argued that the FCC’s outdated limits place Americans everywhere at risk, especially in the era of 5G.  

 Read More About the Case Against the FCC

 In response to the court’s historic ruling, Environmental Health Trust and petitioners released the following statements: 

Devra Davis PhD, MPH, President Environmental Health Trust, author of Disconnect: The Truth About Cell Phone Radiation, What the Industry Is Doing to Hide It and How to Protect Your Family

“If cell phones were a drug they would have been banned years ago. 5G would never have been allowed to market. An ever mounting body of published studies — ignored by the FCC — clearly indicates that exposure to wireless radiation can lead to numerous health effects, especially for children. Research indicates wireless radiation increases cancer risk, damages memory, alters brain development, impacts reproductive health, and much more. Furthermore, the way the FCC measures our daily exposure to cell phone and cell tower radiation is fatally flawed and provides a false sense of security.” 

“Environmental Health Trust submitted hundreds of pages of scientific evidence to the FCC over the last several years documenting the scientific data showing harm, the need for health agencies to create safety limits that protect against biological effects, and the urgency for infrastructure policy that prioritizes wired rather wireless communications to reduce public exposure. While there is a lot of work left to do, today’s ruling is an important step in protecting people against the harms caused by wireless radiation exposure. Unfortunately, the telecom industry is now pushing millions of new 5G wireless antennas into neighborhoods and billions of new wireless devices, putting more in harm’s way everyday. 

“While we celebrate today’s victory, we must look forward. Where do we go from here? We need a congressional hearing into how this agency operated above the law to ensure it never happens again. Committing to 5G merely ensures commercial success in selling new devices and cannot bridge the digital divide where many disadvantaged groups lack access to basic technologies. As we detail in EHT’s letter to President Biden, the priority for infrastructure should be for wired rather than wireless internet connections. The U.S. needs a federal action plan on the issue of wireless radiation that should be informed by the latest science showing that current levels of radiation can damage human health and the environment.”

Theodora Scarato MSW, Executive Director of Environmental Health Trust and a petitioner in the case. 

“This is a win for our children, our future, and our environment. The court’s decision should be a wake-up call worldwide. There was no premarket safety testing for cell phones or wireless networks before they came on the market decades ago. As the court points out in the ruling, silence from federal health and environmental agencies does ‘not constitute a reasoned explanation for the Commission’s decision.’ This ruling highlights how there has been no scientific review of the full body of scientific research to ensure people and the environment are protected. No federal agency has reviewed science indicating impacts to the brain, reproduction, trees, or wildlife — not the Food and Drug Administration, not the Centers for Disease Control, not the National Cancer Institute, not the Environmental Protection Agency. For decades, each of these agencies has downplayed the health effects of wireless radiation on their public websites. A telecom-financed scientist drafted webpages to be put online by our federal government. When people try to stop a cell tower from being built in front of their homes, they are told by their elected leaders that they cannot consider the issue of health effects due to the Telecommunications Act of 1996. This has to stop.

“We need an investigation of how our country ended up in this situation and a federal action plan to ensure it never happens again. It is imperative that our federal agencies immediately act to protect human health and the environment.”  

Statement by Cindy Franklin of Consumers for Safe Cell Phones, an organization that was a petitioner in the case.

“The FCC must now admit that its 25-year-old exposure guidelines are bogus. Our federal regulatory agencies are mandated to protect people and the environment from the known biological harm from exposure to microwave radiofrequency radiation. This ruling shows they have failed to do their jobs. The wireless industry can no longer hide behind the FCC’s so-called ‘safe’ exposure guidelines.”

Statement of Liz Barris of The People’s Initiative Foundation.
“This day is a long time coming! So many people are suffering from the effects of wireless radiation and SO MANY are not even connecting their symptoms, illnesses, cancers, and even deaths to the radiation that is causing it because they trust and believe their government! The FCC failed to respond to ANY of the documentation submitted to them that people are being injured by ALL types of wireless radiation, from cell phones and Wi-Fi to smart meters and cell towers. We need limits, backed by science, that do not harm people or our environment and thus far, the science shows that the only safe wireless radiation is no wireless radiation. Hard wired ethernet connections with plugin portals everywhere for cell phones and internet may be our best bet.”

Statement of Ellen Marks, President of California Brain Tumor Association
“We are thrilled that the court has ruled against the FCC and has shed light on the collusion between the telecom industry. the FCC and the FDA. Too many have suffered needlessly and this madness has to stop. This is definitely a step in the right direction and I am appreciative of the hard work of all involved.”

About the Case
In EHT et al. v. the FCC, petitioners argued that the FCC ignored thousands of pages of research and expert testimony showing harmful effects from wireless radiofrequency radiation to humans, wildlife, and the environment when it decided that the 1996 wireless radiation limits did not need to be updated with a full health and safety review.  

Environmental Health Trust filed its case in the Court of Appeals with Consumers for Safe Cell Phones, Elizabeth Barris, and Theodora Scarato, MSW. They were represented by attorney Edward B. Myers. EHT’s case was then consolidated with a separate case filed by Children’s Health Defense, Michelle Hertz, Petra Brokken, Dr. David O. Carpenter, Dr. Toril Jelter, Dr. Paul Dart, Dr. Ann Lee, Virginia Farver, Jennifer Baran, and Paul Stanley M.Ed. Children’s Health Defense was represented by attorney Scott McCullough and Robert Kennedy Jr. Evidentiary briefs were jointly filed. Scott McCullough represented Environmental Health Trust, Children’s Health Defense, and petitioners in the oral arguments.

Oral arguments were held January 25, 2021, before a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit including Hons. Karen Henderson, Patricia Millett, and Robert Wilkins. 

Environmental Health Trust attorney Edward B. Myers previously intervened in the successful case of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and several Native American tribes against the FCC. In this earlier case, the court upheld the relevance of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The NRDC filed an amicus brief in the EHT et al., v FCC case as well. 

The FCC is represented in-house by William J. Scher, Ashley Stocks Boizelle, Jacob M. Lewis, and Richard Kiser Welch.

Message from Magaki LESURE

Hello,

My name is Magali LESURE, I am French. I created the association Cœurs d’EHS and the World Day of Electrosensitivity, in France, 3 years ago. Since then, the association organizes it every year on June 16th. I am sending you this email to inform you about it and to propose you to participate.

The objectives of this day are to :

  • to make the general public aware of the toxicity of waves,
  • to inform about electro-hypersensitivity
  • to alert on the social and sanitary situation of EHS people,
  • to have this environmental handicap recognized.

There are several ways to participate. Everything is explained in the following article: http://coeursdehs.fr/june-16-2021-4th-world-electrosensitivity-day/

This year, hundreds of people have been informed about the event in many countries of the western world. If we ALL mobilize, we will make this day a worldwide event! I sincerely hope that you will join us in this action!

I would love to receive photos of your participation to add to the report of the Day!

Sincerely,

Magali Lesure

Legal Action Against 5G led by Michael Mansfield QC have recently lodged their case against the government

https://actionagainst5g.org/ 

JUDICIAL REVIEW PROCEEDINGS LODGED IN THE HIGH COURT

The Defendants are

THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE: First Defendant

THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT,
FOOD AND RURAL AFFAIRS: Second Defendant

THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR DIGITAL CULTURE MEDIA AND SPORT: Third Defendant

The Claimants are represented by Michael Mansfield QC, Philip Rule and
Lorna Hackett of Hackett & Dabbs LLP

The case concerns an important issue of public safety. It raises the risk to which members of the public, including particular vulnerable individuals, and children, are being exposed without having consented to or agreed to expose themselves to that risk; and without an adequate and proper consideration undertaken by the relevant safeguarding authorities of the creation of those man-made public health risks.

We provided documents containing evidence from a multitude of respected and eminent experts concerning the health effects of the technology used by 5G, and the attendant risks to the public and individuals, upon which the Defendants declined to act.

The Defendants cannot lawfully continue to ignore or overlook the evidence that indicates the existence of a risk that has not been quantified. To date there has been a failure to engage with this body of evidence, and an inappropriate attempt to delegate any assessment of risk to an external body – a body against which membership legitimate criticism of industry finance and conflict of interest is levelled.

The issues include:

  1. the absence of due investigation of the nature and extent of the risks to the safety of individuals, and human health by the relevant United Kingdom authorities;
  2. the absence of appropriate measures, systems and safeguarding steps to address the identified risks or potential risks; and
  3. a failure to adopt and apply a precautionary principle, or informed foresight, to the exposure of non-consenting children and adults to a risk of harm.
  4. The law provides a framework that demonstrates the unlawfulness of the inaction and errors of the executive bodies we have challenged.
  5. Holding to account the executive or legislative authorities to comply with the law and legal duties is undoubtedly a proper and essential function for the Court, especially in the context of protection of individuals from harm that includes loss of life or serious injury.

 

The grounds are:

The Defendants are in breach of section 6 of the Human Rights Act 1998 resulting from omissions and failings in violation of the positive obligations required to be met by Articles 2, 3 and/or 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

The Defendants have failed to consider the best interests of children when considering formulating, updating or reviewing the appropriate approach to 5G policy and risk assessment for exposed children. In the alternative, they have failed to make this a primary consideration.

The Defendants are in breach of the Public Sector Equality Duty (“PSED”) (s149 EA 2010). There has been no equality assessment, within the meaning and terms of the PSED, to properly inform and be considered in decisions as to the risk posed by RFR and affecting for example approval of 5G generally and/or of permissible locations of 5G and/or of the policy to adopt ICNIRP guidelines.

The SSHSC is in breach of his statutory duty under s2A of the National Health Service Act 2006, either resulting from (a) unlawful delegation or abdication of the statutory function to an external private organisation; and/or (b) irrationally failing to take appropriate steps under this power and/or failing to exercise a discretion in accordance with the statutory purpose.

The Defendants have failed to take into account as a relevant consideration, and give due and proper consideration to, all the evidence, information and concerns which we have raised with them.

The Defendants have failed to provide adequate and sufficient reasons for the decision not to establish a process to investigate and establish the adverse health effects and risks of adverse health effects from 5G technology and/or for discounting the risks presented by the evidence available.

THIS IS A LANDMARK CASE

The Claimants wish to thank all the many members of the public who have supported them including those that have written messages of encouragement, some of which have been heart wrenching, on the Crowd Justice site;  who watch our updates on progress and the thousands who have given donations in support of this legal action. It is for those who have written letters, signed petitions and campaigned, the scientists, doctors and engineers that have put their names to appeals and all the many who have supported our work. It is for those who remain puzzled or uninformed but feel unwell or develop any of the many symptoms that are associated with or worsened by radiation. And it is for our shared environment that does not have a say but for which we, as responsible citizens, are custodians.

Meanwhile our work continues in earnest, and we wish to thank all of you for your continuing support. We will issue further information as this matter progresses.

New wave-resistant buildings under construction in Switzerland

As you know, the AZB – Soliha Provence team is currently mobilized for the programming of the “Terre de Ressourcement” project in its summary pre-project phase.Our Swiss friends have long since passed this stage; 3 new armored buildings for electrohypersensitive people are emerging. This construction is envious on the French side.In September 2019 we met the law AAAG architects in the person of Gideon Abebe, we presented the plans of his project in Schmitten. The work is now well advanced, the roofs have just been completed and the glazing has been installed.Click below to listen to the report by Johann Métry and Noémie Guignard from Radio Télévision Suisse – February 2021.

Access to digital technology in mutual respect

According to article 1 of the Environmental Charter, which has constitutional value “every man has the right to a healthy environment which respects his health” . Based on this article, our project to create a habitable white zone has its full raison d’être.Being irradiated should be a choice and not being irradiated should be a right. Personally, I am for 5, 6 or even 10G for those who want them, even if I think it is toxic for all living things. I am for us to respect the digital desires of those, and there are many, who only see themselves advancing on the wave of progress. They believe they have a right to it, let’s respect them!In return for that, of course, we are entitled to ask them for reciprocity. That is to say, they accept that those who do not support electromagnetic pollution in their flesh ( EHS ) and those who simply want to protect themselves from it can live in non-polluted places commonly called “white zones. “. This mutual respect therefore implies a sharing of the territory. See you soon on Durbon , for a day or for a lifetime.Philippe Tribaudeau ( EHS person).

Legal advances, notes of hope for EHS people

Two court decisions were handed down in their favor.1. The Paris Court of Appeal ruled in favor of Mrs. X ( EHS ) for the refusal of the installation of a connected water meterLe Monde 01.30.21 “This is the first time that a substantive court has admitted that a litigant can take advantage of electrohypersensitivity to oppose a communicating water meter. In October 2015, the Public Housing Office of Arcueil-Gentilly (Val-de-Marne) announced to its tenants that the company Proxiserve was going to replace their individual water meters with so-called “smart” meters, which could be remote readings. A resident, Mrs. X, objecting to it, the Office assigns her and obtains that she is ordered to open her door to technicians. Ms. X appealed, thanks to full legal aid, and produced a medical certificate assuring that her state of health did not allow her to withstand the electromagnetic waves emitted by “smart” meters. The Paris Court of Appeal ruled, on June 9, 2020, that none of the texts invoked by the lessor can justify the obligation to let Proxiserve enter. Article 7-e of the law of July 6, 1989, according to which the tenant must “allow access to the leased premises” for “work to improve energy performance”, is not appropriate, because “the drinking water (…) cannot be qualified as energy ”.
2. The Grenoble Court of Appeal allows Mrs X ( EHS ) to obtain the compensatory disability benefit ( PCH )Mrs X benefits from the disabled adult allowance ( AAH ). She had successively submitted requests for disability compensation benefits in 2014, 2015 and 2016 for exceptional specific costs, accommodation, vehicle; then in 2018 for technical assistance and specific costs. All his requests had been rejected. Following a legal appeal lodged in 2019, the Grenoble Court of Appeal recognized in January 2020 that Ms. X had major medical difficulties and ordered the Departmental House of Handicap ( MDPH ) of Isère to provide her with the services of handicap compensation for technical aids and specific aids.
The PCH is an amount allocated to the disabled person to enable them to better cope with their disability. In the present case, the allocated sum is intended to acquire the anti- wave protections.

Legal aid, a precious remedy

Both of the above people have benefited from legal aid that allows low-income people to take legal action. The State covers the costs of legal proceedings. You can benefit from this assistance if your reference tax income and the value of your movable and real estate assets do not exceed certain ceilings. The aid granted may be total or partial. You must make the request to the legal aid office competent for your domicile, with the supporting documents, before or after the start of the procedure.Benchmark tax income: € 11,262Value of movable heritage: € 11,262Value of real estate assets: € 33,780If only one of the 3 ceilings is exceeded, you will not be able to benefit from legal aid.The assistance will be total or partial depending on the size of your income and the composition of your tax household.

Needing A Place To Be ( Roger Moller )

In 2008 when neighbours refused to turn off their new wireless router I fled for my life with what I could carry. I was homeless for 3 months though I eventually found safe haven in a little valley with no signal in Wales. I have been pleased to accommodate many equally desperate EHS sufferers in the 13 years since. All that time I have been looking for suitable places, not only for myself but for fellow sufferers but have so far been unable to find anywhere available, even temporarily, which I would be able to tolerate.

My life has been threatened for the last 2 years by the prospect of a 4G/ESN mast nearby, I will have to have gone from here before it goes up this year. Most of my things are in storage but in any event my landlady wants her house back and I now find myself in dire need of at least ‘a place to be’.

So it is with great reluctance that I appeal to the ES-UK community in hopes that someone who understands EHS will be willing to offer me safe haven from early March on practically any basis.

About Scott Forsgren, the Better Health Guy: https://www.betterhealthguy.com/about-me
Scott Forsgren, BetterHealthGuy.com, January 28, 2021; Updated: January 31, 2021

I attended the EMF Medical Conference 2021 event January 28-31, 2021.  With EMF exposure being such an important topic in chronic illness, I wanted to learn as many solutions as possible.

The notes below are a very small part of all of the information that was shared at this important event.  Recordings are available for those that want to learn more.  You can also sign-up for their newsletter on their website.

Cindy Lee Russell, MD presented “From Toxins to Towers: A Primer on the Science of Wireless Health Effects” and shared:

Saw an epidemic of breast cancer in her practice and connected dots between health and the environment

FDA still does not recognize the potential risk of cell phones causing cancer

She is the co-founder of Physicians for Safe Technology.

Wireless radiation is a toxicant.

Toxic exposures may lead to cancer, reproductive failure, brain dysfunction, autoimmune disease, and developmental abnormalities.

US has not done a good job at reducing environmental toxins in our environment as compared to other countries.

Chemical toxins can lead to reactive oxygen species and oxidation; equivalent to rust.

Oxidation is needed for health, but too much can lead to disease and aging.

Radiofrequencies are a silent biologic and environmental toxicant.

The damage to the body from wireless technology is cumulative.

Impacts neurologic, reproductive, hematologic, immunologic, and are carcinogenic.

5G is millimeter waves the size of insects; and do harm insects.

Wireless radiation leads to oxidative stress and free radicals which impact cells; antioxidants like A, C, E, and melatonin can mitigate these effects.

Oxidative stress leads to inflammation which leads to human disease.

Wireless radiation passes through the body; the longer the wavelength, the deeper they penetrate; 5G penetrates only the skin.  2G, 3G, 4G penetrate more deeply.

Wireless radiation impacts anything with a water content.

Can impact myelin, neurotransmitters, opens blood-brain barrier (leading to neuroinflammation)

Two hours of exposure leads to weeks of opening of the blood-brain barrier.

Cell towers near students were shown to lead to cognitive decline.

Electrohypersensitivity (EHS) occurs in some with exposure to EMFs; it is not a psychiatric condition.

Symptoms can impact skin, neurologic, cardiovascular.

Headaches, dizziness, nausea, heart palpitations, irritability, poor concentration, insomnia may be present.

Firefighters experienced EHS when cell towers were put on fire stations; later removed from fire stations in California.

5-30% have mild EHS, 1.5-5% have moderate EHS, 0.65% have restricted access to work

Internet addiction is increasing and has been shown to impair white matter and shrink gray matter.

Risks to reproduction: sperm damage, ovarian damage, embryo damage, miscarriage.

One study showed wireless devices triple miscarriage rates; miscarriage is a sensitive indicator of EMF harm.

EMFs decrease WBCs, increase platelets, and lead to rouleaux formation.

Studies have shown adverse effects on the immune system.

US and Canada have much higher allowed levels that many other countries.

Significant associations with cell phone use and brain tumor development.

BioInitiative.org has released a report about the risks of EMF exposure.

5G health risks: eye damage, skin injury, bacterial resistance, widespread metabolic disturbances, possible insect apocalypse.

Wireless radiation is an experiment with no oversight.

Some mitigation strategies:

Get wired.

Time and distance matter.

Don’t sleep with phone near you.

Turn off Wi-Fi at night.

Keep landline.

Remove smart meters.

Ronald L Melnick, PhD spoke on “Carcinogenicity of cell phone radiation demonstrated in studies by the National Toxicology Program” and shared:

Important to understand the exposure and risk of local effects of where a device is held and not the effect of the exposure across the entire body.

Carcinogenicity studies have been done in rats and mice.

DNA damage has been observed in studies.

Schwannomas are tumors that surround the myelin sheath and are increased with exposure.

Much of the research he presented showed more issues in male rats than in female rats.

Increased risk of glioma has been observed.

Oxidative stress has been detected in numerous studies.

We should not assume any current or future wireless technology is safe without adequate testing.

Fiorella Belpoggi, PhD presented on “Results of Carcinogenicity Bioassay on Rats Exposed to Mobile Phone Radiofrequency Radiation” and shared:

Found statistically significant increase in malignant Schwannoma related to the heart in male rates.

Schwann cell hyperplasia was observed in both male and female rats.

Questions

Cindy Russell, MD shared that studies demonstrate hearing loss associated with cell phone use.  Blue light from digital screens lead to oxidative retinal damage.  Blue light impacts melatonin levels, circadian rhythms, and sleep.  Radiofrequency has direct effects on the eye as well; both thermal and non-thermal effects.  5G is a particular problem as there will be increasing levels of all non-5G wavelengths as well.

Igor Yakymenko, PhD, DrSc spoke on “Oxidative Mechanisms of Health Effects of Low Intensity Radiofrequency/ Microwave Radiation” and shared:

Radiofrequencies lead to oxidative stress; imbalance between reactive oxygen species and cellular antioxidant systems to detoxify/repair.

Antioxidants are enzymatic like SOD and non-enzymatic like A, C, E, K, zinc, selenium, CoQ10, and others.

If the cell walls do not contain the proper phospholipids, this can negatively affect barrier function.

Oxidative stress is connected to a significant number of human diseases.

Henry Lai, PhD spoke on “Rebuttal of Some of the Arguments that Most Present RFR Exposure Guidelines are Adequate to Protect the Public” and shared:

Most existing RFR exposure guidelines are based on obsolete research.

Many agencies are resisting consideration of more recent data.

Studies report genetic effects in 65% of studies, free radical changes in 92%, neurological effects in 73%.

There are more research studies showing effects than not showing effects.

Devra Davis, PhD, MPH spoke on “Epidemiological, Clinical and Toxicological Evidence of RF-EMF on Reproduction” and shared:

Integrative Environmental Medicine book is a book that she has a chapter in about EMFs; authors Aly Cohen, MD and Frederick S. Vom Saal, PhD.

Testes and penis receive highest levels of radiation with cell phone in pocket; even Mayo Clinic now recommends against this.

EMFs may be playing a role in sperm count and infertility.

Tablet radiation testing done at 20 centimeters away; devices are often used closer than that distance.

Most cell phones exceeded the limits set by the European standards.

Apple iPhone 5 tested and manufactured distance is 1.45 W/kg; at 0 mm from body, all phones exceed both the US and European standards; do not carry a phone on your body.

30 days exposure for 2 hours per day of non-thermal radiation in mice led to testicular cell wall disruption and lower viable sperm.

Signal is often more important than power in determining negative effects.

Voltage-gated calcium channels can be altered with EMF exposure.

Evidence of damage can be found in proteomics and can be passed on.

Head size of sperm is decreased after one hour of exposure.

50 minutes of downloading on laptop decreased sperm motility, velocity, and speed.

Cell phones are linked to erectile dysfunction.

Radiofrequency radiation can be used to weaken the blood brain barrier to get chemotherapeutic agents into the brain; but there are downsides of a leaky blood brain barrier.

RF below safety limits promotes tumors; 2.5 increase in lymphoma in mice; higher liver and lung tumors.

Increases in rectal and colon cancers in the US and Iran in patients under 40 may have a radiofrequency contributor; the colon may be highly sensitive to cell phones in the pockets.

Evening and post-bedtime exposure to light-emitting digital media screens impact sperm quality.

It is best to keep your cell phone as far from the testes as possible.

Devices are tested by manufacturers away from the body.

Over 400 doctors involved in the BabySafe Project.

Environmental Health Trust

Henry Lai, PhD spoke on “Neurological Effects of Nonionizing Electromagnetic Fields” and shared:

200 KHz – 300 GHz; non-ionizing (not enough energy to break chemical bonds); emitted by wireless communication devices such as cell phones, Wi-Fi, AM/FM, TV, military radar

Nervous system is an electric organ and likely affected by electromagnetic fields.

Changes in EEG and sleep EEG (non-rapid eye movement sleep)

Increase in blood-brain barrier permeability allowing exogenous chemicals into the brain

Changes in neurotransmitters

Changes in cognitive function

Affects development of nervous system in neonatal animals

Free radicals could mediate the neurological effects of RF radiation.

Hippocampus has been shown in studies to be affected by RF radiation.

RF radiation impacts spatial memory, short-term memory, and cholinergic innervations to the frontal cortex and hippocampus.

RF radiation leads to release of corticotropin-releasing factor (stress hormone) and impact memory loss.

Exposure to RF radiation could affect the nervous system and impact sleep and memory function.

Production of free radicals and endogenous opioids may be involved.

RFR may impact Alzheimer’s and ALS and other neurodegenerative conditions.

Questions

Henry Lai, PhD mentioned that RF radiation has been a factor in confusion of pilots flying aircraft.

Devra Davis, PhD, MPH was asked if seat warmers may be a factor in colon and prostate cancers.  She suggested limiting exposures.  Motorcycles also have high levels at seat level.

Studies have shown lower testosterone in people living near cell towers.

On the topic of 5G, Henry Lai, PhD suggested that the peripheral nervous system could be stimulated and then feedback to the central nervous system.

Charles Teo, AM, MBBS, FRACS spoke on “Brain Cancer and EMR … Is There a Link??” and shared:

He is an expert on brain cancer and had no pre-conceived views on the topic.

Primary tumors grow in the brain outward; secondary outside the brain growing inward.

Brain cancer doubles in numbers every 16 hours.

Benign tumors grow slowly; malignant tumors grow quickly.

Increasing incidence of brain cancer

Most common is astrocytoma; most common is grade 4

Ionizing radiation does cause brain tumors

Genetics also contribute to the development of brain tumors

It is unknown whether or not toxins such as nitrites/nitrates cause brain tumors

Immunosuppression is unknown in terms of contribution to brain cancer; but starting to change to the understanding that there is a role

Does immune suppression allow brain cancer?  Does brain cancer suppress the immune system?

Whether or not non-ionizing radiation causes brain tumors is unknown; having reviewed the literature, he has come to an opinion

The lack of understanding of how magnetic field exposure is involved is the reason that the potential causal effect is not accepted

Critical mass is now of the understanding that we better listen and better learn.

Over time, more studies connecting cell phone use with potential for brain cancer

Interphone study in 2010 showed that there was a 2x higher possibility to develop a brain tumor on the side of “heavy” use.

Most recent article support a connection between mobile phones and brain tumors.

Have to look at the studies and consider whether or not they were funded by industry.

Still arguments for and against the link between exposure and brain cancer.

All of the “against” studies were funded by industry and should be taken with a grain of salt.

Microwave radiation from cell phones can damage genetic material and DNA without producing heat.

RF-EMR enhances mitochondrial ROS, decreases motility and vitality of sperm, and stimulates DNA fragmentation.

More than 30 minutes of cell phone per day can increase chances of brain cancer on the side of use.

IARC has classified cell phone use as a class 2B human carcinogen.

Questions

Devra Davis, PhD, MPH was asked about the use of calcium channel blockers to treat EMF sensitivity.  She mentioned some clinicians have moved in that direction based on the work of Martin Pall.

Charles Teo, PhD was asked about Bluetooth; there have been studies; there are as many to show no link as there are a link.  There is consensus that the more you reduce your exposure to EMF, the better.  Best to keep cell phone one arm-length away from the head.

Hillel Baldwin, MD shared that we are all part of the largest unethical human experiment in human history.

Devra Davis, PhD, MPH suggested greatest exposure is into the penis and surrounding soft tissue like rectum, bladder, and prostate.  Greatest exposure that any individual will have is from the cell phone.  Distance is your friend.

Henry Lai, PhD mentioned that the full body is exposed to radiofrequency from TV, AM/FM, and other towers.  Vicinity to towers has been linked with various cancers.

Magda Havas, PhD felt that Wi-Fi is high on the list (full body) and may be even more of a risk than cell phones.

Gunnar Heuser, MD, PhD spoke on “Functional Brain Scans of Patients Exposed to Neurotoxic Chemicals and/or EMF” and shared:

Years ago, he personally had a non-healing post-op incision where the culprit may have been a nearby cellphone.

The concept of a Faraday cage is still thought about, respected, and practiced.

Talked about a child where his face became red and swollen every time Wi-Fi was turned on; hands would also well.

Now known as “screen dermatitis” which does exist and is triggered by EMFs.

Faraday developed problems with his memory in his 40s.

EMFs can cause health effects at levels below safety levels.

Kindling is the result of a small repetitive electrical stimulus that eventually results in a seizure.

EMFs similar build up in their potential to create health effects.

Symptoms: Headaches, disorientation, confusion, personality, memory/cognitive impairment, executive functioning impairment, slow reaction time, ADD, neuropathy; hearing problems, tinnitus, skin, shortness of breath, GI problems, and others.

Neurotoxin chemical and EMF exposures impact the blood-brain barrier.

Repeated chemical exposures may lead to later EHS.

Toxic encephalopathy with impairment of cognitive and memory functions after exposure to solvents, pesticides, fumes, perfumes, mycotoxins, heavy metals, and EMFs.

Testing: MRI, SPECT, PET, fMRI, EEG, qEEG, neuropsych eval, T.O.V.A., neuro exam; need functional test such as SPECT, PET, and fMRI.

SPECT requires a radioactive substance be injected.

Did a fMRI in 10 patients that showed abnormalities.

MRI volumetric studies can show impairment; looked like an earlier version of NeuroQuant.

Their studies have shown significant effects on the brain from EMFs.

With 5G, shielding technology will become increasingly important.

Beatrice Alexandra Golomb, MD, PhD spoke on “Diplomats’ Mystery Illness: Pulsed Radiofrequency/Microwave Radiation” and shared:

Frey Effect – perception of sounds from radiofrequency; pulsed; 2.4-10,000 MHz

RF can sound like crickets.

Melatonin is a clinically important antioxidant found to protect against radiation injury across the radiation spectrum.

Electrosensitive individuals have a higher amount of antibodies to myelin.

Blood-brain barrier impairment found in those with EHS.

RF radiation leads to oxidative stress which impacts mitochondria, calcium channels, inflammation, autoimmunity; also impacts membranes, blood flow, cell death, and blood-brain barrier.

Symptoms: sleep, cognition, headaches, tinnitus, hearing loss, nosebleeds, dizziness, nausea, anxiety

Article on Diplomats

Questions

Dr. Golomb mentioned that melatonin for sleep would generally be 3mg; higher doses such as 10mg or higher may benefit those with EHS.

There is a high overlap between MCS and EHS.

Dr. Heuser mentioned that patients have reported that being grounded improves their symptoms.

Dr. Baldwin clarified the only safe places in the world to ground are where there are no ground currents; the only safe places are in the forest or at the beach; have to consider the potential for exposure to dirty electricity; he recommends against any form of grounding other than the beach or forest.

Dr. Davis mentioned that a cordless phone has a mini cell tower at the base sending signals 24×7; do not belong in houses at all.  Cell phones constantly send and receive; several antennas.  Get wired and stay wired.

Dr. Magda Havas shared that many baby monitors are voice or sound activated; attempted to import them to Canada and were told they were illegal.

In China, they have a BabySafe router and other BabySafe appliances.  They are also turning off 5G at night.

Dr. Baldwin shared that gadolinium contrast can lead to reactions in chemically-sensitive people.  If you can avoid it, it would be advised.  Wireless hearing aids with Bluetooth are recommended against, but it is becoming harder and harder to find a hearing aid where you can disable the RF.

In terms of electric cards, Dr. Baldwin shared that these are mobile wireless access devices, and people are barraged by EMF.  Driving these poses risk.  Exposure and dose over time matters.  The data shows that these exposures are likely not benign.  More details here.

Dr. Lai indicated that radiation bounces within metal such as within a car or train.

All life forms are negatively impacted by EMFs; including plants.

Dr. Havas has observed animals in distress which resolved with shielding cloth.

Levels of EMF in hospitals are generally very high.  Levels impact disease progression and recovery from disease.  Any modern, technical facilities are difficult to be in.

Elizabeth Seymour, MD, MS, BS, FAAFP presented on “Differential Diagnosis of Complex Cases” and shared:

Teach patients how to block, shield, and ground; helps the neurological and vascular system calm down and become less symptomatic.

Ensure patients understand they are not alone.

Drugs mask symptoms; like a Band-aid on a bleeding artery; need to look for the root causes.

Cleanup the environment, test water, eat organic, test for heavy metals.

EHS patients commonly have heavy metals; dental? fish? water?

Treat metals with chelation or natural chelators.

Remove metal from the mouth and body.

Metal implants may need to be allergy tested and desensitized.

May use desensitization therapies.

Detoxify: sauna, massage, oral supplements, IV, colon hydrotherapy, acupuncture, ionic foot baths

Piero Lercher, MD spoke on “Prevention, Diagnosis & Treatment of EMF Associated Illness (with focus on mobile phones and 5G) New Aspects on International Policies & Actions for Public Health” and shared:

Direct health effects may include cancer (group 2B) and EHS.

Cancer, genotoxic effects, neurologic effects, neurodegenerative diseases, infertility, EHS

Indirect effects caused by excessive use: addiction, behavioral disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, impaired mother-child interactions, increases risks of accidents

Environmental effects include waste problems (scrap iron), environmental damage, high energy consumption, potential influence of flora and fauna (insect population decrease, tree death)

They don’t share slides with non-CME participants.  It would be nice to have them since many of them are unreadable.

Electrohypersensibility vs. Electrohypersensitivity; some feel but are not unwell and others are unwell due to EMFs

We are all participants in a global field trial lasting 25-30 years.

Symptoms: sleep, stress, anxiety, irritability, headache, tinnitus, concentration, fatigue, energy loss, depression, faint, vertigo, dizziness, eye strain, flu-like symptoms

WHO does not recognize EHS as a diagnosis and suggests focus on symptoms and not reducing EMF exposure

3% highly sensitive in the US; 35% moderately sensitive

Primary treatment should be on prevention or reduction of EMF exposure; give the body a chance to recover

Detection of environmental co-factors can be a challenge.

Get history, medical exam, assess EMF exposure, measure, reduce, diagnose, and treat

Core diagnosis should focus on nitric oxide production, mitochondria, oxidative stress, inflammation, melatonin status

Blood pressure and heart rate may be taken in several locations

Blood pressure, ECG, HRV, sleep EEG may be helpful

GSTM1, GSTT1, SOD2, COMT may predispose one to being sensitive

Control the body burden, reduce oxidative stress, regulate intestinal dysfunction, optimize nutrition, control inflammation, normalize mitochondrial function, detox (glutathione, ALA, C, selenium, chelation), adjuct therapies (coaching, exercise, sleep, sauna, hyperthermia)

What value is added by the use of 5G?  Who is liable?  Why won’t insurance companies underwrite 5G devices?  How many installations are planned near me?  Is my personal data secure?

Use mobile phones as a tool only when really needed.

Implement EMF-free zones and periods.

Replace potentially harmful technologies with less harmful options.

Riina Bray, MD BASo, MSc, MCFP, MHSc spoke on “Clinical Observations and Recommended Practice Guidelines for the Management of EHS Patients” and shared:

EHS is not gender specific; overlap with MCS

Dealing with EMF impact on the body needs to consider the total load; person is like a barrel and when the barrel overflows, symptoms result.

Need to implement detoxification strategies to reduce what is in the barrel

EHS is a spectrum disorder.

Genetic polymorphisms increase a person’s vulnerability.

Can react to electric, magnetic, dirty electricity, radiofrequency, and electro smog

Non-thermal effects are DNA damage, voltage gated calcium channel disruption, suppression of immune system, blood brain barrier permeability, thickening of the blood, cardiovascular/neurological/endocrine issues, EHS, sleep abnormalities

Symptoms: tinnitus, racing heart, sleep problems, fatigue, headaches, heart palpitations, memory problems, vertigo are common issues

Look at toxic metal body burden for mercury, nickel, lead, cadmium, and arsenic

Look at Lyme disease and co-infections that impact the nervous system which can increase vulnerability to EHS

Look at CNS lesions, inflammation, neurodegenerative diseases

Look at heart rhythm disturbances

Students and teachers are at high risk; lack of sleep, around electronic equipment, poor lighting, stressful period

May need to explore phobias and nocebo effect which can lead to anxiety; can benefit from DNRS

Testing: inflammation, histamine, autoimmune, infections, mitochondria, oxidative stress, myelin antibodies, nitric oxide production, melatonin, hypoperfusion in limbic system and thalamus, salivary cortisol, blood sugar, blood pressure and heart rate, PET/SPECT/fMRI/TDU

Treatment: Reduce exposure, inspect home, individualize therapies

Psychotherapy is not helpful

Weed, seed, and feed approach

Seeds: Sleep, Environment, Exercise, Diet/Drugs, Support (self, spiritual, medical, family, social, occupational, financial)

Once the seeds of health are adapted, a person has more ability to adapt.

Detoxification: hydration, heat, antioxidants, mitochondrial function, optimize bowel and renal function, perspiration; stress reduction, supplements, sauna, hydration, exercise, diet; remove dental materials and amalgams; explore genetic SNPs

Eat an antioxidant rich diet, decrease oxidative stress (E, C, ALA, NAC, glutathione, B, zinc, resveratrol, CoQ10, selenium, turmeric); protect with calcium, protein, iron, chromium; selenium, zinc, copper, magnesium protect against mercury toxicity

High fiber diet, clean personal care products, adrenal support, homeopathy

Propranolol and calcium channel blockers may be used

Antihistamines can be helpful for EHS patients.

Electrolyte imbalances need to be corrected.

Sleep: melatonin, magnesium, passion flower, lemon balm, rhodiola, ashwaganda, PC/PS, taurine

Mindfulness-based stress reduction

Grounding

Stephanie McCarter, MD spoke on “EMF Sensitivity Treatment Modalities” and shared:

Dr. William Rea did first study on EHS in 1991.

Total body load is crucial to treating patients.

Over 220 implants to be considered; tattoos also contribute to the load.

75% of treatment is creating a healthy environment; particularly the bedroom.

EMF patients need an EMF meter like Cornet ED88T or Sound Pro Plus Alpha Lab UH52

Learn how to ground/earth

Use Stetzer filters for dirty electricity.

Reduce mold, metal, chemical, pesticide, EMF exposures.

Clean air, water, and diet.

Check: RBC minerals, heavy metals, chemicals, glyphosate, urine mycotoxins, fatty acids, HRV

It’s always more than just one thing.

Healing the gut is the goal; hidden food allergies need to be treated; often related to mold or metal exposures.

High mold and metals = high yeast.

Provocation/neutralization used at their clinic.

Serum IgG for molds, mycotoxins, and chemicals; can have false negatives

SLIT or sublingual immunotherapy

Von Ardenne Oxygen Therapy; when venous blood is high in oxygen, there is inflammation in vessels; giving oxygen for 2 hours a day leads to a switch effect that opens microcirculation.

Treat coinfections: EBV, HSV, HHV, Parvo, Coxsackie, Lyme, Strep, Mycoplasma, Chlamydia, Candida, Proteus/Klebsiella, Hepatitis, parasites, H. Pylori

If IgG is 4x reference range, these may need to be treated.

Treating infections aggressively can lead to more sensitivities; have to go slow and low.

LDI has been very beneficial in these patients.

Ozone has been helpful for infections and decreasing inflammation.

Autovaccines of stool, urine, tongue scrapings, sinuses; grow in culture and sterilize and make an antigen.

Do not chelate when amalgams are still present.

Can exacerbate conditions for months if you go too quickly with treatment.

Increasing glutathione and nutrient reserves can then allow more chelators to be tolerated.

Chelation is very helpful for EMF sensitivity but has to be done slowly.

If they don’t tolerate sauna, they won’t tolerate chelation; not ready.

Sensitive patients often have a history of traumas.

People often given Klonopin or sleep medications and not being treated properly.

Heavily coated tongue is a clue for a coated gut.

Early graying of the hair can indicate low minerals.

ANAs often normalize with treatment as the barrel is drained.

Abnormal thermography results are common in EMF patients.

One-sided symptoms are associated to ANS being impacted.

Gliotoxin is often higher due to high levels of yeast.

EHS can be associated with mold exposure.

Immune system can reactive to implants on an ongoing basis.

Evening Primrose and borage oil are source omega-6 oils.

Seeing more thallium and cesium due to radiation in our environment.

Cranial sacral therapy is a top tool for EHS patients.

EMF patients are stuck in the upper chakras and not in the root chakras.

Cranial sacral, acupuncture, breathing, meditation, Yoga, Qi-gong, laser, microcurrent, PEMF, bioresonance can be helpful.

Limbic system: Thought Field Therapy, EFT, Rapid Eye Therapy, EMDR, DNRS; if these are not done, no amount of shielding or treatment will help.

Reduce exposure, treat nutrient deficiency, immunotherapy, immune boosters (autovaccines), detox, oxygen therapy, treating infections, grounding, emotional/limbic system retraining

Patients are sympathetic dominant.

Questions

Dr. McCarter talked about using their autovaccines and LDI for Lyme-related issues.  Many with prior antibiotic therapies have other issues such as GI issues months or years later.  Ozone and oxidative therapies can be very helpful.  They start with nose, ear, rectal insufflation and later move to IV ozone.

Dr. Lercher noted that in the pandemic lockdowns, it is more difficult to escape from EMF exposures when people are locked indoors.

There was some question about grounding sheets and contaminated ground currents.  Dr. Bray mentioned she has had more negative reports than positive, and she prefers lakes, grass, and actual earthing.  Dr. Baldwin’s wife has EHS; he investigated these products and found them to be potentially more harmful than helpful; urban environments have grounds into a dirty grid; he recommends against it unless in a rural environment.

Solvent profiles are available through Great Plains.  Dr. McCarter noted that additional fats such as with Keto diets can make people worse if they already have an overloaded liver.

Dr. McCarter shared that there are many toxins in breast implants including metals; goes beyond silicone.  BreastImplantIllness.com; saline implants still are a source of exposures.  Implants may increase risk of lymphoma.

Dr. Bray mentioned that cannabis products can be helpful for pain, sleep, and anxiety; 50% of her patients are using cannabis oil.

Dr. McCarter suggested the ERMI/HERTSMI-2 from EnviroBiomics; EMMA testing can be helpful for mycotoxin testing.

Many EHS patients have MCS, Fibromyalgia, and immune dysregulation.

Living in a clean environment is foundational for patients.

Solar panels have high magnetic fields and dirty electricity.  Majority of homes in US have or will have smart meters; can opt-out.  Water meters are becoming smart meters as well.

Jeromy Johnson MSCE spoke on “Engineering Approach to Healing and Preventing Electrical Sensitivity 1” and shared:

Has an engineering background; worked in financial industry in Silicon Valley

After a bank of smart meters was installed 8 years ago, he became electromagnetically sensitive.

Has consulted with 500 EHS people and communicated with thousands

EMFAnalysis.com, TEDx Talk “Wireless Wake-Up Call”; book “How to Find a Healthy Home”

Primary reasons for EHS: severe EMF exposure, chronic illness (Lyme, autoimmunity) made worse by EMFs, MCS  with toxic exposure (including mold), poor detoxifiers, reactive limbic system/OCD/anxiety (10-20%).

EHS patients have to develop a new world view where wireless technology is no longer safe.

Validating the condition is important to healing.

Engineering Approach to EMFs: measure/eliminate/reduce/shield/measure, distance is key, accurately measure the for types of EMF

Low Frequency Magnetic and Electric Fields (power lines, electrical wiring, appliances)

EMI/Power Quality (dirty electricity, solar, dimmers, CF lightbulbs)

Radio Frequency (wireless, including 5G)

Microwave Radiation

Most homes have 5-20 sources of EMF that need to be eliminated.

5G is bringing the EMF topic into society’s awareness; it is important not to focus on one type when mitigating EMFs.

Meters: Safe and Sound Pro (below 1 microwatt/m2 is ideal), Alpha Lab for magnetic fields (< .1 milligauss), GigaHertz Solutions 3851A for electric fields (< 1v/m is ideal), RadioShack AM radio for EMI, line EMI meter

Electric fields impact sleep the most; best to turn off circuit breakers

There are no personal protection products that he recommends.  He has tested many of them and they have not been helpful.

8 Steps: Live in a low-EMF home, have low-EMF sleeping area, minimize wireless technology, create a low-EMF computing setup/office, detox and exercise, nutrition and supplements, low-stress (meditation, supportive relationships, positive outlook, limbic retraining), help communities understand this important issue

He has not used a cell phone or Wi-Fi for seven years.

Rob Metzinger, EET spoke on “Engineering Approach to Healing and Preventing Electrical Sensitivity 2” and shared:

President of Safe Living Technologies in Canada; started in 2006

Fields are invisible, but they are very real.

Most EHS feel better below 10 microwatts/m2; some need to be below 1.

We are electromagnetic beings.

Non-ionizing radiation does have biological effects.

Anything that has power as well as our devices are sources of EMR.

AC power lines, AC magnetic fields when devices are being used, dirty electricity or noise from electrical power

Radiofrequency: wireless devices, transmitters, cellular networks, cordless phones

5G: not the same as 5G signal from Wi-Fi router, higher bands to not easily penetrate buildings, will take a decade to fully install 5G, higher bands are limited to highly populated areas like stadiums and arenas, current shielding products are effective where 99.99% of the signals are, high band does not easily penetrate buildings, increase the amount of time you unplug.

Measuring equipment:

Safe and Sound meters are meters that they create

Meters are 5G ready for low and mid bands.

Safe and Sound Classic RF Detector – 200 MHz to 8 GHz – color coded LEDs identify exposure levels

Safe and Sound Pro II RF Meter – 400 MHz to 7.2 GHz – gives specific numerical information

Professional meters from Gigahertz Solutions in Germany is what building biologists use; they are the exclusive North American distributor

Determine exposure levels and then eliminate sources where possible or reduce exposure and shield.

Shielding is not natural but may be necessary.

Always verify with measurements after mitigation strategies.

RF protection – complete enclosure is usually best option; bed canopies and curtains; Swiss Shield; shielding paints can be used; foils and films can be helpful.

Hard to make a meter more sensitive than the human body.

Ideally practitioners should have a loaner kit to provide to their patients with Safe and Sound Pro II and Gigahertz ME3830B Electric and Magnetic Field meter.

In Winter 2021, they will offer a wearable Safe and Sound meter with an alarm when you are in a high exposure area with configurable threshold.

Erica Mallery-Blythe, BSBM spoke on “Prevention, Diagnosis, and Management of Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS)” and shared:

PHIREmedical.org

RF damages the body at very low intensity, non-thermal exposures.

Most safety regulations protect against thermal exposures only.

Biological disruption is not linear to intensity or frequency.

EHS is a multisystem condition characterized by increased sensitivity to electromagnetic fields of increasingly broader frequency ranges and lower intensities.

Symptoms: insomnia, headache, pressure in the head, sharp pains in head, electric shock, dizziness, vertigo, tinnitus, visual/hearing disturbance, short term memory loss, anomia, tremor, vibration, seizure, synesthesia, heart palpitations, BP issues/POTS, musculoskeletal pain, joint dysfunction, thirst/dehydration, urinary/bowel urgency, altered energy levels, chemical sensitivity, sensory upregulation.

Trigger could be a chemical exposure or EMF exposure.

Symptoms are often relinquished in the reverse order of how they were acquired.

History pitfalls: multisystemic nature, weak field triggers, interaction with devices, unusual relieving factors, white noise obfuscation, unmasking in low toxicity environments, emotional exacerbation, psychiatric manifestations, unusual beliefs, paranoia.

Staging

Stage 1 – mild symptoms, no lifestyle change

Stage 2 – moderate symptoms, lifestyle changes implemented

Stage 3 – severe symptoms, rapid onset with exposure, forced extreme lifestyle changes

Stage 4 – avoidance protocols in place, partial or full remission, fewer acute reactions, cumulative/delayed symptoms more noticeable in absence of acute

Provocation studies introduce EMF in a blinded manner.

Tests: oxidative status, immune status, blood chemistry, vitamin/mineral/antioxidant levels, sympathetic/parasympathetic nervous system, and others.

Lymphocyte Sensitivity Testing can be helpful to look for common chemical toxic triggers; impact calcium entrance into cells; is heightened with EMF exposure

Management: First, Prevent; Second, Manage.

A-H Approach: Avoid, Breath fresh air, Cognition/Creativity/Care, Dentition (amalgams), Exercise, Friendly Foods, Grounding, Hydration, Sunlight/Sleep/Sauna

Avoidance is the key to care

Avoid upregulation of NO/ONOO cycle: chemical exposures, food antigens, MSG, aspartame, excess exercise, stress.  Avoid mold, radon gas, EMF.

CBT should not be used to tell people not to worry about the cell phone, etc.  These are a problem; you do not want to teach the person that they are not a problem.

Glass bottled spring water may be a good option.

Nutritional IVs, O2, HBOT, ozone, LDI, LDA, Immunoglobulin, ALF (autogenous lymphocytic factor), chelation, sauna, pharmacology may be offered by some physicians; after the A-H options above.

Complete reversal of symptoms is possible even for those with severe EHS; however, symptoms will often recur with exposure.

Distance can dramatically reduce the intensity of exposure.

Joseph R. Salvatore, MD spoke on “Electromagnetic Fields in Cancer Therapy” and shared:

Works with electromagnetic fields in cancer therapy

Prior to use of ionizing radiation in cancer therapy, non-ionizing fields were explored in cancer therapy

Non-thermal options may work with calcium channels, immunity, cell membranes, cell protein pathways, signal transduction pathways, or effects on iron.

Using high temperature for treatment of cancer dates back to early 1900s; Coley’s toxins

Electromagnetic fields may be used in combination with chemotherapeutic agents.

Studied a static magnet over the liver while doing chemotherapy; was found safe for further investigation

Christopher D’Adamo, PhD spoke on “Evidence-based Tools for Developing a Discriminating Eye for Dietary Supplement Quality – Focus on EMF Mitigation” and shared:

Supplements defined as a product other than tobacco to supplement the diet; must contain one or more dietary ingredient; vitamins, minerals, herbs, botanicals, amino acids

52% of Americans take at least 1 supplement daily

Female more likely to take supplements; Caucasians more likely; older adults more likely

10% of Americans take 4 or more

Multivitamin, D, calcium, Omega-3, glucosamine/chondroitin, probiotics among the most popular

2020 most popular: D, magnesium, fish oil, CoQ10, multi, curcumin, probiotics

EMF exposure mitigated by magnesium, fish oil, curcumin

Greatest growth in collagen, magnesium, and CBD

Dietary supplements are regulated as food; cannot make health claims

FTC regulates the marketing of dietary supplements

Federal regulations are “soft”

Supplements generally safe; some concerns with body-building, weight loss, and sexual function

Purity regulation is a concern

Supplement selection: Obtain clarity on product contents, determine efficacy of product formula, ensure purity of product ingredients

Proprietary blends may be a concern where individual amounts are not provided

NIH Office of Dietary Supplements has a database with supplement labels

Examine.com: to explore efficacy of products

ConsumerLab.com reviews hundreds of supplements and identifies many poor products

Resveratrol may be helpful for EMF exposure

Labdoor.com evaluates supplements; no cost

USP, NSF, and TruLabel are 3rd party purity certification bodies

Dietary supplements cannot substitute for EMF mitigation strategies

Supplements to mitigate EMF exposure: upstream to block voltage gated calcium channels and downstream to address damage

Blocking voltage gated calcium channels: magnesium is a calcium channel blocker; RBC magnesium testing is best

Reduce oxidative stress and inflammation

Melatonin promotes blood-brain barrier and has neuroprotective effects; EMF exposure decreases melatonin; melatonin may mitigate EMF damage

Omega-3 fats can help with inflammation; synergistic with melatonin for EMF cytotoxicity

Curcumin controls numerous genes associated with inflammation and decreases oxidative stress; cannot get enough with turmeric; anticoagulant effects; better absorption with piperine/black pepper

C, Green Tea, Resveratrol

Peter Sierck, CIEC, REA, EMRS, RFSO spoke on “How to Create a Low EMF Building” and shared:

Did recent testing of 5G outside of a home; highest exposure was from Wi-Fi and cordless phone in the home and not from the 5G

ETandT.com

Hz, KHz, MHz, GHz are each a factor of 1000 time higher than the previous

RF is 3 MHz to 30 GHz

Longer waves have less energy and more penetration

Shorter waves have more energy and less penetration; this is why 5G needs so many antennae

They perform a “physical for your building” looking at exterior walls, interior walk-through, testing with instruments, data analysis, and mitigation recommendations.

AC magnetic, AC electric, Radio Frequency, and Dirty Electricity are the common EMFs

AC magnetic: current flow; power lines, transformers, breaker panels, appliances, electric motors; 60Hz in the US; 400Hz in airplanes; measured in milliGauss; want to be below 1mG.

There is an EMF calculator app from Wavecontrol for smart phones.

Wiring errors can lead to high magnetic fields; largest source of errors in residential buildings.

Many recommendations come from the EUROPAEM 2016 guidelines which includes a guideline for sensitive individuals.

AC electric: created by voltage in electrical conductors; building wiring, power and extension cords; no current flow required to be an issue; need to use shielded wiring with a metal wrap that is grounded; using a switch like EMF Sleep Safe to turn off the circuit breakers at night; shielding paint on the walls can reduce electric fields; power cords are unshielded and do create electric fields; can get shielded power cords or a device that plugs in to the wall and allows the current to be turned off

Radiofrequency: increasing exponentially, anything wireless

Consumer meters. vs. Professional Meters vs. Spectrum Analyzer

Have found cell towers hidden in rooms at high-end hotels; need to carry meters with you

AntennaeSearch.com is not very current/updated; there is no accurate directory of antennae installations

Reducing RF

Interior sources: identify, remove/mitigate, cell phone

Outside sources: identify, shield building, bed canopies

Dirty Electricity: frequencies riding on top of 60Hz power frequency; Stetzerizer, GreenWave, or similar filters; important to confirm there are no wiring errors before using these; a whole house filter is a better option; Solar Power Perfect, Satic, RxDNA, PxDNA

Mary Ackerley, MD, MD(H), ABIHM spoke on “Brain on Fire: How Biotoxins Cause Brain Inflammation” and shared:

Inflammation plays a major role in psychiatric disorders.

Research may demonstrate a link between EMF and cytokine illness.

Depression will cause more issues than any other illness; leading cause of disability; 17% have one episode in their lifetime.

Antidepressants are not very effective; 50% of patients get about 50% better.

There is no test and yet 1 in 10 people are given a prescription for something with no objective diagnosis.

Exposure to water damage is associated with hormone dysregulation and immune dysfunction.

Depression is an inflammatory illness.

There are numerous biological and environmental factors that contribute to chronic inflammation; CIRS and possibly EMF exposure are among them.

CIRS is often mistaken for a neuropsychiatric syndrome.

Biotoxin illness symptoms impact many body systems.

Very few patients get a diagnosis without a suggestion of a psychiatric disorder.

Many of her patients have stress, anxiety, panic, insomnia, cognitive impairment, lack of motivation, irritation and anger, poor executive function, and suicidal ideation.  Anxiety and insomnia being the most common.

CIRS symptoms can be explained away as a neuropsychiatric syndrome.

Differentiating inflammation-induced sickness behavior from depression; pro-inflammatory, cytokine based; malaise, fatigue, withdrawal.  Guilt, worthlessness, and hopelessness are seen in major depression but not in sickness behavior.

Long-term inflammation promotes obesity, cardiac illness, neurodegeneration, and depression.

Infections and toxins associated with psychiatric illness: biotoxins, Lyme, co-infections, Strep, encephalopathy (viruses, COVID, Spanish Flu, RMSF), Toxoplasmosis

Exposure to water-damaged buildings has been associated with depression.

Most common complaint she hears is the brain is not working like it used to.

One study showed a 10 point drop in IQ in 6 year old children with visible mold exposure in a home.

Neurology is becoming aware that inflammation plays a major role in many of the conditions that they treat.

Cytokines contribute greatly to the inflammatory response in CIRS; MMP9, TGFb1, TNFa, IL-6, CRP, IL-1b.

Elevated cytokines have been associated with depression in studies.  Same has been observed in anxiety/OCD.

OCD is common in CIRS; particularly in children.

Inflammatory cytokines have been observed in bipolar illness.

Elevated TGFb1 has been observed in both mold illness and Alzheimer’s.

Mold is the most important toxin to look for in patients with dementia.

Quinolinic acid is produced in neuroinflammation; kynurenine pathway is involved.

Low VEGF associated with fatigue that may take time to resolve.

Low VEGF correlated with completed suicides; decreased blood flow to the brain with lower oxygenation may make impulse control more difficult and lead to depressive thoughts from neuroinflammation.

Cortisol regulates neuroplasticity through BDNF.

ADH is usually non-existent.  Higher ADH is associated with less negative social interaction.  Important for getting along with others in humans.  Marital discord is extremely common.

Treatments to improve gray matter in research: VIP (helpful in COVID), exercise, antidepressants and ECT, meditation, diet, curcumin, zinc, taurine.

Keith Berndtson, MD spoke on “Indoor Mold Illness: Pathophysiology, Diagnosis and Treatment. Review of the Basics” and shared:

Suspect indoor mold illness when:

History of water-damage

Onset of symptoms with multiple body systems

MMP9 > 400; TGFb1 > 3600

Patients feels better in fresh air location

Dryness, frequent urination, low ADH, high osmolality

Inhaled particles pass through lung battier, enter bloodstream, and then move to cells and tissues triggering widespread cell danger response and systemic inflammation.

Systemic inflammation can cause disruptions in the blood-brain barrier.

Signals of not being safe impact the amygdala and limbic system.

Type 3 Alzheimer’s is associated with mycotoxins.

Don’t assume that being in water-damage is safe in someone that has no obvious symptoms.

A tablespoon or two of pickle juice may help with muscle cramps in some people.

Finding fresh air locations is more difficult with air pollution, smoke, and other contaminants.

If TGFb1 is high but the patients is feeling better, TGFb1 may be present to downregulate inflammation.  C4a fluctuates with minimal exposures.  Focus on the patient, not the lab.

ICD-10 for mold illness is Z77.120; finally getting acknowledged.

Short-term ELF exposure can trigger IL-6 and MMP9.

Indoor mold and ELF can elevate IL-6, IL-1b, TNF-a.

Sore throat, eye irritation, runny nose, and cough can be associated with innate immune system activation; consider EMF exposure and mold exposure.

Indoor mold and EMF exposure are common causes of chronic illness and can occur together.

Defects in building construction can cause “hell rides” for people; need more awareness.

EMF Syndrome Questionnaire

Sheena Symington, B.Sc., M.A. spoke on “How to Advocate for Persons who have Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity, Canadian Campaigns” and shared:

ElectrosensitiveSociety.com; she consults with people with EHS

3% of population have severe EHS

35% have moderate EHS

Causes

Physical trauma to CNS such as trauma

Chemical traumas such as amalgams

Electrical exposure

Biological trauma (mold, Lyme, parasites)

Impaired immune system

Support from friends and family is critical; no one chooses to be EHS; validation is important for healing

EHS is physiological, not psychological

Live blood shows rouleaux formation with Wi-Fi exposure

Magda Havas has shown increases in heart rate with Wi-Fi exposure

Some portion of the population reacts to EMF at levels lower than safety limits.

Peas were exposed to Wi-Fi for 30 days which impacted their root and shoot growth.

Wi-Fi exposed plants grew away from the source of the EMF exposure.

Low EMF, MCS, mold housing is necessary

Sensitive individuals often explore mobile housing to find safer locations.

Medical alert bracelets should be explore for medical accommodation.

Recovery – R2ID

Reduce EMF Exposure

Reset Limbic System

Immune System Support

Detox

Measure EMF/EMR, radiofrequency, dirty electricity, electric and magnetic fields, blue light

Can connect iPhone, iPad, etc. to Ethernet connection.

Limbic reset is as important as reducing exposure; many with EHS have recovered with DNRS.

Heal From Your Past is another helpful tool.

Trauma can be eliminated with Auricular Chromotherapy; points on the ear are associated with the amygdala and hypothalamus; can be miraculous for eliminating trauma; Dr. Daniel Asis – thecenteredmovement.com

Sharon Goldberg, MD spoke on “Bacterial Effects of EMF Exposure” and shared:

There are visible effects of EMF exposure (antibiotic resistance from EMF exposure; antibiotic like effects) and “less visible” effects (soil bacteria, bacteria in and on food supply, effects on human microbiome and the indirect effects of the impact on the microbiome such as sleep, metabolic, and hormonal effects).

Antibiotic resistance is one of the greatest public health challenges of our time.

EMF exposure causes various and sometimes opposite effects on bacteria.

E. coli, Staph aureus and epidermis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Listeria monocytogenes have demonstrated antibiotic resistance with RF exposure.

Microorganisms become resistant to antibiotics with RF exposure.

RF has been shown to enhance biofilm formation.

Antibiotic resistance, increase in motility, and increase in biofilm formation have been observed.

Exposure to Wi-Fi influences transcriptomes responsible for metabolic and cellular processes, localization, stress response, transposition, motility, chemotaxis, and cell adhesion.

EMF exposure induces antibiotic-like effects.

EMF has been shown to negatively impact Lactobacillus acidophilus.

EMFs and on bacteria and their hosts in a stressful manner which leads to altered gene expression.

Paul Héroux, PhD spoke on “A Chicken in Every Pot, a Fiber in Every Home” and shared:

Average adults spends 3.81 hours per day on mobile devices.

Industry wants to proceed fast; has investors to satisfy; public health takes a back seat

US FCC limits are 10,000,000,000,000 times higher than natural background EMF.

Risks of health problems were denied by lead sellers for years.

Information is being suppressed in the US about EMFs just like was in the past for lead.

Can optical fiber and LiFi (light) bring reductions in 5G and EMR exposures?

5G will have 40-50 base stations per km2.

The higher the frequency, the less penetrating it is.

5G faced opposition in countries more aware of risks of high radiation such as Switzerland and Italy.

5G is claimed to be needed for self-driving cars and remote surgeries.

5G is a contributor to global warming.

5G has limited usefulness for citizens.

LiFi can be faster than 5G.

FCC believes that heat is the only EMR risk factor and that non-ionizing radiation cannot hurt you.

FCC claims that the fields are too low to have any health consequence.

Industry has set the stage to ignore true biological impacts.

EMF is able to change oxidative phosphorylation in the mitochondria.

Cataract risk associated with non-thermal radiation.

Every grain of sand should communicate with every other grain of sand in the universe; Internet of Things

5G represents an unprecedented level of radiation in our environment that will be very difficult to escape.

Karl Maret MD, M.Eng spoke on “Challenges and Benefits of EMFs in Energy Medicine” and shared:

Energy medicine is either veritable energies (measurable) or putative energies (Qi).

Many prestigious institutions are interested in the human energy field or biofield.

Many healing frequencies have been discovered.

Sensitive coils can be used to measure emissions from the body.

FSM from Carolyn McMakin, DC is very effective in pain management; showed drops in cytokines in study on Fibromyalgia; more effective than drugs.

Electrical bone stimulators are used for treating non-union fractures.

Dr. William Rea wrote an early article on EMF sensitivity in 1991.

Proteins, fats, and salts all have water around them which forms a hydrogen bond that folds the 3D structure of the proteins.

99% of all molecules in the body are water molecules; 65-70% by weight

External fields can disturb healthy cellular equilibrium.

Communication in the body takes place through biophotons.

Structured water is important in quantum physics.

Many devices based on Tesla coils need/are worthy of further study.

Rife found what specific mechanisms could destroy microorganisms.

PEMF has many benefits and applications for health.

Laser light has many positive effects on the body.

Light therapy can be used to improve the brain for cognitive and emotional function.

We are primarily water beings and very sensitive to electromagnetic fields.

Questions

Dr. Ackerley talked about testing with EnviroBiomics.  When these tests are positive, it is good information, but false negatives can occur leading to a false sense of security.

Dr. Symington was asked if turning down Wi-Fi power to 16% causes the devices to power up to connect more efficiently.  Her response is that each environment needs to be measured to validate any changes.

Dr. Golomb suggested that under high oxidative stress, the body can become under-methylated.  CEOs are often under-methylated; could be the result of impaired cell energy creating adrenaline and higher levels of productivity.

22% of EHS people had some form of electric shock like lightning strike, high voltage accidents, near fatal accident with DC current, and similar events.

Anthony B. Miller, MD, FRCP, FRCP (C), FFPH, FACE spoke on “Public Health Implications and Public Policy Review” and shared:

Beginning with WWII, exposure to RF has grown substantially over time.

2011 Working Group: limited evidence for carcinogenicity of RF in humans or animals.  Overall “possibly carcinogenic”; group 2B.

Now, we believe RF causes cancer; based on several studies; 2 fold increase risk after 10+ years; 2-5 fold increase; 5 fold increase after 5+ years of use

RF may contribute to breast, brain, vestibular nerve, parotid, and salivary gland cancers.

Distance is your friend.

Nicholas Kardaras, PhD, LCSW spoke on “Glow Kids – How Screen Addiction is Hijacking Our Kids – And How to Break the Trance” and shared:

Pre-pandemic, every measure of mental health was the worst in history.

The tipping point is the digital age which leads to more depression, self-harm.

Human beings were not designed to be disconnected and staring at screens all day.

We have become a heads-down, text-neck society.

Effects of technology may be addiction, ADHD, aggression, anxiety, depression, and psychosis.

Screen time becomes a “digital drug”.

Tickles the dopamine reward loop.  Eating and pro-creating spike dopamine to incentivize life-sustaining behaviors.

Video games raise dopamine with no benefit to humanity.

Food is 50% dopaminergic; sex 100%; video games 100%; cocaine 350%

Study showed lower brain development in children 3-5 years old if over an hour a day of screen time

Sharon Buccino, JD spoke on “The FCC’s Legal Duties: To Inform and Protect the Public” and shared:

FCC authorizes the use of the electromagnetic spectrum for wireless services.

They manage the allocation of specific portions of the spectrum, how they can be used, an auction to a company given rights to a specific portion of the spectrum, and deployment.

NEPA is the National Environmental Policy Act.

FCC established first RF guidelines in response to NEPA in 1985.

Elizabeth “Libby” Kelley, MHA spoke on “International EMF Scientists Call for Protection of Humankind and Nature” and shared:

EMFScientist.org

EMF scientists call for precautionary measures to protect humankind and nature

Safety limits are much too high and are not protective.

WHO is not acting to protect humans from the impact of EMF on our bodies

We are part of a large human experiment without our informed consent.

Existing guidelines are obsolete in terms of long-term, low intensity exposures

2015 appeal: increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increased in free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on the general well-being in humans

WHO is failing to fulfill its role as the preeminent international public health agency.

The scientists want protection for children and pregnant women, guidelines and standards strengthened, manufactures encouraged to develop safer technology, minimizing ground current, public be fully informed about the risks and educated on mitigation, medical professionals be trained on how to treat, government to fund research and training, media to disclose financial ties, safe zones be created

Many scientists were unwilling to sign due to fear of retaliation

We are flying blind when it comes to healthy and safety of EMF exposures.

Theodora Scarato, MSW spoke on “International Governments Address the Health Issues Posed By Cell Phones, Wi-Fi, and 5G? A Review of International Policy” and shared:

CDC and FDA minimize any potential risks of cell phone use.

Mayor in Italy ordered suspension of 5G until there is proven safety data.

They have a number of flyers, step-by-step guides, and other resources.

Cell phones and wireless devices are not tested the way they are used with contact to the body.

EHTrust.org

 Cecelia (Cece) Doucette, MA spoke on “U.S. State and Local Policy Review & Case Studies” and shared:

Look at the legal fine print of your devices; for iPhone, can be found under Settings->General->Legal & Regulatory->RF Exposure

Tells you to keep the device away from the body and use a hands-free option to avoid RF exposure

Conflicts of interest exist within the regulatory agencies.

Healthcare professionals carry weight when engaging with local advocates.

 Doug Wood spoke on “Building a National Movement to Push Back Against 5G” and shared:

Americans for Responsible Technology

5G signal is a focused-beam technology; on-demand

5G will always be a combination of 5G and 4G (phone, texting, and some data)

5G waves do not travel as far as 4G which is why antennas need to be much closer.

5G does not penetrate well through walls, trees, or even rain.

We will all have involuntary exposure 24×7 in our own homes.

Up to a million new antennas will be deployed.

FCC has abdicated its responsibility to protect the public

Most insurance policies exclude RF radiation as a pollutant; encourage local governments to require telecom to provide that insurance.

The notion that non-ionizing RF radiation is harmless has been proven false.

Public opinion is the only thing that beats money.

Questions:

We went from being consumers to “being consumed” according to Cece Doucette.

Theodora Scarato, MA mentioned that towers are often in higher density in lower income and black/brown areas.

Peter Sierck, CIEC, REA, EMRS, RFSO presented “Workshop: How to Test for Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) and Radiofrequency Radiation (RFR)” and shared:

Evaluate: AC magnetic, AC electric, Radiofrequency, Dirty Power

Magnetic is dependent on current flow through wiring.

Electric field is dependent on voltage being present.

Water in pipes is like AC magnetic when the water is running.

Water in the pipes when the faucet is off and water not running is electric.

RF has no pipe, no faucet; energy transmitted throughout the air.

Dirty power is other frequencies riding on the power and creating distortion in flow of water.

Lighting is important to consider as well given compact fluorescent and LED lights.

For instruments, explore: sensor, frequency range, single or multiple parameters, and detector type.

RMS detector often used; gives lower levels than peak detector.

Magnetic fields can only be measured when they come into the center of the coil; are directional; some meters are single, some are tripe direction; want 3 axis meter.

Different instruments use different units of measure; WaveControl EMF Calculator used to convert.

Frequency range should be listed on each meter.

Electric clock may have a motor and transformer; high fields but drop off quickly with distance.

Electric fields from unshielded electric wiring; humans contain a lot of water so touching the meter can affect the result as the field is going through the body and not a real representation of the field.

Radiofrequency testing first considers background levels outside to compare to.  Devices need to be set to RF mode; when you conduct measurements, need to turn off your own cell phone.

Need to understand that a cell phone on the body is a significant source of RF exposure; a shielded bag can reduces exposure notably.

Dirty power or dirty electricity does not have a simple evaluation criteria; can use Stetzer and GreenWave meters.  You can then plugin filters and measure the change.

How does dirty electricity impact the human when the measurement is done on the wire?  Have to consider better ways to measure dirty electricity in the air.

In a bedroom, he does a 9 point evaluation for AC electric and AC magnetic fields.

In legal cases, recalibrating instruments may be important.  In reality, devices are generally not recalibrated.

Dimmer switches: low/medium/high don’t produce dirty electricity but variable speed does; turning off power to the circuit will turn it off.  Turning off the light will still have an electric field but no dirty electricity.

Some phones are still transmitting even when on airplane mode; have to look at the various antennas.

Dr. Havas mentioned that people with metal implants due feel ground currents heating their implants.

Targets: refer to European guidelines which breakdown by day, night, sensitive individuals.

Magnetic field – .1 to .5

Electric field – 5-20 are common readings at head of bed; try to reduce to below 1 volt/meter.

Shielding and cutoff devices are helpful strategies.

ENV RD-10 has electric, magnetic, and RF; has to be charged via a USB cable; does not give numbers, only ranges

Older Tri-Field meter is very popular; over-estimates 60 Hz magnetic field levels.  Latest Tri-Field he likes a lot (give proper 60 Hz reading); can do electric, magnetic, and RF.

GQ EMF-390 has too many buttons and too many options; shows magnetic, electric, and RF at one time.

Extech shows magnetic, electric, and RF at one time.

LIUMY LM7001 measures electric and magnetic fields at same time.

Devices have advantages and disadvantages, different placement settings; need to find the one that you like.

Measuring the same things with several devices will often result in different readings; each is designed differently with different sensors.

Shielding – paint, copper mesh, aluminum foils; aluminum foils are vapor barriers and reflectors; can lead to condensation and mold problems.  He likes a breathable shielding material made with copper-wire mesh.

Dr. Havas mentioned that people are exposed to dirty electricity; it does not stay near the wires.

Shielding 5G – the more solid the material, the better the shielding; Y-Shield paint works, copper mesh works.  It is much easier to shield 5G than existing waves.

Dear All,

During these harsh times there are two legal cases evolving and which you might care to look into and consider supporting.

Additionally, there is a recent Review Study on EHS is:
Belpomme D & Irigaray P: “Electrohypersensitivity as a Newly Identified and Characterized Neurologic Pathological Disorder: How to Diagnose, Treat, and Prevent It”
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7139347/

The Links to two UK legal actions are below.

Please see their websites for further information.
5G Judicial Review 2020
https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/5g-judicial-review-2020/
fields (EMFs) generally due to their impact on the health of humans, animals and plants. Many people are sensitive to RFR and EMFs and suffer illness, distress and financial loss due to inability to work. The balance of scientific evidence is now clear that RFR/EMFs are harmful to humans. The UK government insist on using ICNIRP’s guidelines to set limits of radiation for public health. ICNIRP’s guidelines are not fit for purpose as, among other things, they only recognise harm from heating of the body and are set for short term exposure 6 minutes in fact. Many people suffer harm without any heating of their bodies.

Legal Action Against 5G
https://actionagainst5g.org/
Michael Mansfield QC is leading our legal team challenging the UK Government over its failure to take notice of the health risks and public concern related to 5G. One of the most venerated barristers of our time, Michael Mansfield has led legal teams in high profile cases of civil liberty and miscarriages of justice. He has represented the families of Grenfell Tower, Lockerbie, the Ballymurphy Massacre and Stephen Lawrence. He was recently described as “the king of human rights work” by The Legal 500 and as a Leading Silk in civil liberties and human rights.

​Dear All,

Hopefully this finds you well somewhere safe.  Many are commenting that e-smog has increased as more work from home on digital empowered devices and one person has reported on her need to walk the streets in London until the various levels dissipate somewhat late at night. The local police officers are used to her story about levels and are supportive.

If you have your own stories to add to the next newsletter under lockdown please share it with us by sending email to editor@es-uk.info

.There have been various links published recently and which might give you some new ideas for your letter writing.

Keep well and stay safe,

Please find message below from  Lloyd Burrell

I became electrically hyper sensitive in 2002 and I’ve been raising awareness about the dangers of EMFs and sharing solutions on-line for over a decade.

But this last year has been something of a milestone because it’s the first time I’ve put ‘pen to paper’ to share a complete solution to EMFs.

Today, I’m excited to announce the launch of my EMF Practical Guide.

For years people have been saying to me ‘Lloyd, how can I get your book in paperback’?

Well, I’ve finally written one (it’s available as a digital download also).

The EMF Practical Guide, is my new 290-page comprehensive book on the known and suspected effects of electromagnetic fields from everyday devices and appliances like cell phones, computers, Wi-Fi, electricity on wiring, on humans, animals, and nature.

It contains over 500 references, but more importantly my new book is crammed full of clear practical solutions and insights for ALL the different categories of EMFs.

To my knowledge, nobody has written such a comprehensive resource on this topic.

It’s available on Amazon now in paperback and Kindle version.

See: https://amzn.to/39SgDaa

Update from ES-UK about 5G

Dear All,

ES-UK has had its recent 5G poster campaign challenged by the ASA for misleading the public!

The correspondence, which has been addressed to the ASA and submitted, has also been added to the web site this week to rebut the challenge. See Link below:
http://www.es-uk.info/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/ES-UK-reply-to-ASA-Oct.1.2019.pdf

There is also a new document posted under Resources, entitled ‘Serious Flaws in the WHO and ICNIRP claims’. See Link Below:

IGNIR news release: Electrosmog Quiet Zone

All ES-UK trustees supported the creation of IGNIR in 2017-18. Its chair is Dr Andrew Tresidder, a trustee of ES-UK. Any comments on the EQZ or the IGNIR Guidelines should be forwarded directly to IGNIR via the Contact link on their website: ignir.org

Note from ES-UK: many of us are very well aware at ES-UK that quiet zones may still trigger ES symptoms and that the best way to remain well is to create an environment with minimal RF/ELF frequencies.

Please refer to: Press Release : Announcing the IGNR EQZ – Electrosmog quiet Zone – with its practical guideline levels.
We have agreed to share the IGNIR release with you all, to highlight how much work is being done to educate the wider population about electrosmog. Do check out IGNIR.org if you are able and interested.

Stroud’s STOP 5G group and MP David Drew – on the Jeremy Vine Show! (Radio 2)

Dear friends and supporters,

Thank you again for signing and supporting our petition “Pause Stroud and Gloucestershire’s 5G Rollout IMMEDIATELY”.
We have some exciting news. The producer of the Jeremy Vine Show came up to our street stall last week, and was
so impressed with what he heard that on Wednesday they had a feature on electro-sensitivity and 5G on their show. Our
excellent and supportive MP, David Drew, was on live and spoke very well, as was Sammie, who spoke brilliantly too
(Sammie spoke at our Lansdown Hall public meeting several months ago). The details for listening are in this link
– PLEASE SHARE THIS FAR AND WIDE – thank you >>
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m0007ggk [being the Jeremy Vine Show link]
Start at 1 hour 35 mins 55 sec
This Jeremy Vine Show coup will really help us to get some national momentum behind the 5G campaign (his show has
several million listeners) – and it will also help us with our motion to Stroud Town Council on 5G, which Lucas Schomaker
and John Marjoram will be proposing at the next STC meeting on 2 September (7 p.m.). It would be great if you could
come along in a show of support for the motion.
On another matter, one of our members, Dr Delny Britton, has just completed a brilliant deconstruction
of the government minister’s response to June’s Westminster debate on 5G (at which David Drew spoke).
Everyone should read this document (which is in pdf form), to see the extent of government complicity in
the misinformation and duplicity that are accompanying the 5G rollout. Please email me direct for a copy
– thanks.
Finally, we’re still waiting for confirmation of dates for our next public meetings, with Dr Jeremy Naydler,
Elvis the Poet and Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe. I’ll send full details when I have them.
Thanks once again for your wonderful support! – and do drop into our street stall if you’re ever passing (Fridays and Saturdays).
Warmly
Richard [for Stroud’s Stop 5G Group]
P.S. We’re really trying to get more people to sign the latest government website petition on 5G. If we can get this up to 100,000
signatories, there’ll have to be a debate in Parliament. Some 145 people from Stroud constituency have signed it so far – which means that
hundreds of you haven’t signed it! We’d be so grateful if you would both sign it and also share the link far and wide with your friends etc.
