1) The BioInitiative Report has been updated adding studies that have been done since the last review in 2014. If you’ve never looked at the BioInitiative Report, you really should. It is an amazing compilation of evidence that EMF and microwave radiation have serious health effects. Industry has tried to demean this report as not showing both sides – that it concentrates on the studies showing harm only. The purpose of this report is to refute industry’s (and those agencies like Health Canada and the Cancer Society) who argue that there is no evidence of harm.

2) A member sent this article from the Financial Post, encouraging us to write to the FP (as well as making comments to the article) about the health effects which are not discussed in this article.
Cellphone usage is the new smoking. It’s time to follow France’s example and stamp it out
3) From our friend and colleague, Kate Kheel, in the USA:
The bi-weekly Wrap-Up from the website http://whatis5g.info/, features links to current articles, documents, youtube videos etc. related to the “downsides” of 5g and the Internet of Things. Topics covered include health, environment, cybersecurity, privacy, energy consumption, effects on our brains and humanity, e-waste, conflict minerals, robots, artificial intelligence, harsh working conditions for e-factory workers, toxic materials in products, ethical issues arising from the IoT, and more. Also included are articles on safe, reliable, fast, and cyber secure fiber optics – a far better option for the vast majority of our information and telecommunications needs. In addition, a significant section of updates is devoted to government actions on small cell deployment, actions people and communities can, and are taking, to oppose 5g, and resources to further efforts.To subscribe to the monthly Wrap-Up and learn more about 5g and the IoT, please go to, http://whatis5g.info/.
After considering the downsides of the 5g and the IoT, it is our hope you will feel moved to take action to protect yourself, your community, and our Earth. We need you!!
