1) As more people have become aware of the relationship between cell phones (and other wireless devices) and health problems, more lawsuits are being brought. This is a major one in the UK which could set a precedent.

Brit dad sues Nokia for up to £1million claiming using his mobile phone caused his brain tumour
“A salesman who suffered a brain tumour is suing Nokia for “significant” compensation which could hit £1million – in a case that could cost mobile phone firms a fortune.
Father-of-six Neil Whitfield, 60, claims heavy mobile phone use in the late 1990s caused a deadly growth.
His job meant using a phone for long spells – and in the days before it was illegal he had the gadget pressed to his ear while driving.
Neil developed an acoustic neuroma tumour on a nerve between his inner ear and brain.
He was left deaf in one ear after surgery in 2001 to remove a growth the size of a golf ball. He also suffers with balance problems.”
Roberto Romeo v INAIL – Italy:
2) A member found this article about RF interfering with various implants. With Wi-Fi in schools, on ferries, in restaurants and just about everywhere else, it is impossible for people with implants to be outside, enjoying life as they should. This is scary. Is there an agency that monitors this?
Anyone with an implant wishing to share any knowledge should email me at: email@example.com

On the effects of RF signals on medical implants
“I have Parkinson’s Disease. In 2009, I had a Deep Brain Stimulator (DBS) implanted in my brain. It completely replaces the pharmaceuticals I took for fifteen years, which caused increasingly unpleasant side effects. My Medtronics manual says that a cell phone must be at least 20 inches away from me with a SAR of no more than 1.8. Held near my head, the phone’s SAR can’t be more than 0.25 for 15 minutes. Otherwise, according to Medtronics, it will cause dangerous heating of my implant. If the implant gets too hot, it will malfunction, my brain could be injured, or I could die.
The Medtronic manual for my deep brain stimulator (implanted to ease effects of Parkinson’s) lists more than sixteen pages of potential electro-magnetic interferences. I have experienced interference with the operation and programming of my medical implant in elevators, on large commercial aircraft, at malls, libraries, government buildings and other places with security systems.”
3) This article explains well how those who dispute the science regarding EMR think, how they justify saying things like “there is no evidence of harm”. Whether they ignore the science and mislead due to ignorance or conflicts of interest, they take the same approach, assuming (in many cases correctly) that most people are willing to take their word for it and not do their own research. That is how Health Canada and Dr. Perry Kendall justify doing nothing in the face of strong evidence that by doing so, many people, especially children, will suffer the consequences.
A Psychologist Explains the Thinking Error at the Root of Science Denial
This widespread rejection of scientific findings presents a perplexing puzzle to those of us who value an evidence-based approach to knowledge and policy.
“I have observed deniers use a three-step strategy to mislead the scientifically unsophisticated. First, they cite areas of uncertainty or controversy, no matter how minor, within the body of research that invalidates their desired course of action. Second, they categorize the overall scientific status of that body of research as uncertain and controversial. Finally, deniers advocate proceeding as if the research did not exist…
There is a vast gulf between perfect knowledge and total ignorance, and we live most of our lives in this gulf. Informed decision-making in the real world can never be perfectly informed, but responding to the inevitable uncertainties by ignoring the best available evidence is no substitute for the imperfect approach to knowledge called science.”
4) In the USA, the ACLU (America Civil Liberties Union) is concerned about the gathering and use of private data, not needed for billing purposes, by utilities via smeters.
‘Smart’ meters in Yakima: Convenience or potential invasion of privacy?
“But the meters have their critics. In 2017, the ACLU of Washington urged the Seattle City Council to consider requiring privacy protections before allowing the devices to be installed.
The meters, the ACLU argued, collect data in such ways that can reveal whether someone is home, and to some extent what they are doing in their home based on energy usage. And that data can be sold for marketing purposes, the ACLU and others warned.
“The potential surveillance capabilities of make clear and binding guidelines essential,” ACLU Technology and Liberty Project Director Shankar Narayan wrote to the Seattle council “In considering what safeguards might be appropriate, the City Council must consider the outer envelope of this (or any other) technology’s capabilities and ensure third-party verification of those capabilities, rather than rely on the assurances of the very vendors that stand to benefit from potential sales of Seattleites’ data.”
Narayan said in a phone interview Friday that ability to analyze data from the meter has improved to the point where it can not only show what appliance is operating, but, in the case of a TV, what movie is being watched.”
5) Several years ago, Dr. Magda Havas discovered that blood sugar levels increase when people exercise on an electric treadmill. She has researched the effect of EMR on people prone to diabetes and coined the term “type 3 diabetes” for this type of sensitivity.
If Your Cell Phone and Other Devices Were Making You Fat, Would You Cut Back on Using Them? WiFi Exposure Causes Blood Sugar Fluctuations, Weight Gain, Obesity.
Decades of research on cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation as well as Electrical Pollution (Electrosmog) has proven that exposure can cause all kinds of health issues. Research has also proven that exposure can worsen pre-existing conditions even if it didn’t cause them…
Dr. Magda Havas on Diabetes and ElectroSensitivity [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJcM6RZwyfA&fs=1&hl=fr_FR]: One symptom of electrohypersensitivity is altered sugar metabolism similar to diabetes. In addition to type 1 and type 2 diabetes, some diabetics may be electromagnetically sensitive as shown by changes in their blood sugar when exposed to electromagnetic triggers.
