1) A national panel has concluded that the evidence is strong enough showing a relationship between RF radiation and cancer that even agencies like Health Canada cannot ignore it.

Can your cellphone cause cancer? Scientists find definitive link in study of rats.
Cellphone radio-frequency waves can be decisively linked to cancer in rats, according to a national science panel meeting in Research Triangle Park on Wednesday. The scientists’ finding establishes the clearest connection of cellphone risk to humans in a major U.S. study to date.
The scientists made their announcement at the end of a three-day meeting to review a $25 million rodent experiment conducted by the National Toxicology Center in RTP for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The draft of the study, issued in early February, had established a weak link in some cases, scientific advisory panel on Wednesday said the data is more compelling and indicates greater risk than initially acknowledged.
Wednesday‘s decision is expected to change the debate over cellphone safety, and public health activists predict the results will increase pressure on federal agencies to issue safety warnings and tighten safety standards of the ubiquitous electronic device.
2) A member shared a program on CBC Radio 1, “Spark”, in which Nora Young had a 12 minute segment about 5G. She interviews Amy Nordrum from IEEE Spectrum, a writer who includes info about some of the problems and health questions. Very frank about the limited value of 5G and that health effects are still unknown, but implies that RF is safe. We need to get info about the health issue to Young.
What will your phone get from one more G?

3) Another car crash that might have been on auto-drive.
The evidence is there for everyone to see. Please consider forwarding these studies/reports/articles to those in your area who could help fight for the precautionary approach.

Subject: Please consider this when allowing so many microcells on our downtown streets!
According to official data, Telus has a couple of microcells every 2 blocks, and these apparently reach more than 1 km in distance (why so many then?), then there are also several low cell towers on the Hollyburn apartments, and probably numerous others.
We do need to begin to take this proliferation seriously, given the marked increase in cancer seen in the UK and US. Is it also the case here in Canada?
Time for the precautionary principle!

“We found a sustained and highly significant increase in GBM throughout the 21 years and across all ages,” said Alasdair Philips, the lead author of the study, which has just been released online by the peer-reviewed, open access, Journal of Environmental and Public Health.
