EMF Current Events

What’s Up? Worldwide Current Events for the EMF-Cognoscenti

Staying in the Know with Pertinent EMF Current Events

Keeping up with EMF Current Events is not an easy task in today’s fast changing world of 5G deployment, that is being spurred on by the technology race for the self described goal of “global economic supremacy”. In this regular monthly feature section, What’s Up?, we will endeavor to bring readers a few of the notable (non-fake-news) articles that have caught our attention from EMF Professionals around the world.

Recent FCC Public Comment Submissions

The FCC’s request for Public Comments on its proposals for 5G has generated over 1200 responses, (not a big number considering Members of Congress consider 100,000 public responses a threshold number for getting involved). Here are some of the more notable comments submitted:

Yellowstone is planning to install over 523 new wireless antennas because, as stated in their press release, “visitors stay longer when they can be connected without frustration”. Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) has put together an outline the issues and is asking for public support.

The DIGITAL LIVING – PROMISES AND PERILS CONFERENCE at San Francisco State University, which was held online (due to the Covid lockdown) April 25, 2020 has now allowed this public overview of the conference, including videos of its various notable speakers’ presentations here.

Recent Studies

Environmental Research Journal has published a new study entitled “Residential proximity to power lines and risk of brain tumor in the general population” which found an increased risk of brain tumors was associated with living near power lines. This is in addition to the repeated research studies, which for decades have associated magnetic field power-line frequency ELF-EMF from power lines to a type of childhood leukemia.

Korean Government Funded Study finds 1.76 GHZ LTE wireless impacts human cells, increasing intracellular reactive oxygen and senescence, and decreasing cell proliferation. Read More…

A Yale School of Medicine study titled Thyroid Cancer, Genetic Variations, and Cell Phones Linked in New Yale School of Public Health Study considered 823 SNPs in 176 genes and pinpointed that 10 variations increased the risk of thyroid cancer among mobile phone users. The risk of cancer was more than doubled among users with SNPs occurring in 4 of the genes examined.

In The Radiation Safety Journal Health Physics, Ronald Melnick PhD, a toxicologist, for 28+ years at the United States government’s National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the National Toxicology Program (NTP), and lead designer of the NTP study on cell phone radiation, analyzed criticisms made by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) of the National Toxicology Program Study on cell phone radiation. Melnick’s analysis concluded that ICNIRP “misrepresented” the study and should not have dismissed the carcinogenic effects found in experimental animals exposed to RF-EMF.

EMF Safety Advocacy at Large

EM-Radiation Research Trust, has fought to remove celltowers in areas of high cancer and founded three charitable organizations to defend families from radiation exposure, which has propelled the topic of wireless radiation to international status, and placed Eileen in front of power brokers in Westminster, Brussels, and Luxembourg, where the EU Commission resides, as well as Russia and Norway. An inspiring interview with Eileen here:

More Cities Halting 5G

The work of grassroots EMF safety advocates has resulted in stopping 5G in two USA Cities, as Farragut Tennessee votes to Halt 5G and Easton Connecticut  votes to ban it altogether.

In January 2020, an expert forum — “What You Should Know About 5G” — was organized by the only state representative to vote against accelerating 5G wireless facilities in Connecticut,David Michel, D-Stamford featuring Frank Clegg, the former president of Microsoft Canada; Patti Wood, founder of the nonprofit Grassroots Environmental Education; and Devra Davis, an epidemiologist and founder of the Environmental Health Trust. A video of the Stamford Connecticut meeting can be found HERE. See News story Easton bans 5G technology rollout citing lack of research, testing.

Hvar Croatia halts Deployment of 5G until an independent and impartial study proves that such technology has no negative impact on humans and the environment, the Town Council decided unanimously.  Watch a Croatian Public Awareness video on safe cellphone here, and read about Croatia’s progressive antenna regulations here.

Chris Young

Chris has been a licensed Professional Electrical Engineer for over 40 years, practicing in nearly half the States in the USA and serving as CEO of Executive Engineering Services for companies dedicated to making electrical power safer for people. His areas of professional expertise include utility, industrial, commercial and government entities, as well as private homes and work places. Though Chris was once an avid electronic technophile working in a corporate WiFi cloud, with constantly ringing cellphones holstered on each hip accommodating the 30 international engineering services offices reporting directly to him, his growing concern for Electrosmog, the consumer obliviousness to it, and the lack of expert understanding of biological hazards along with the lack of health-minded safety standards to deal with it, prompted him to retire early in order to devote his expertise to being part of the bigger solution - living with our technology safely and using it knowledgeably. Today, in addition to his highly respected training of worldwide Certified EMF Expert Consultants. Chris serves on the IEEE committees reviewing EMF safety standards, and he is a highly sought after leading authority on EMF Detection and Protection.
