1) A warning from the US FDA that any wireless medical device connected to a network (soon IoT) is vulnerable to hacking — but keep on using them because they are more convenient!!
Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities Affecting Medtronic Implantable Cardiac Devices, Programmers, and Home Monitors: FDA Safety Communication
“The Conexus wireless telemetry protocol has cybersecurity vulnerabilities because it does not use encryption, authentication, or authorization. The FDA has confirmed that these vulnerabilities, if exploited, could allow an unauthorized individual (for example, someone other than the patient’s physician) to access and potentially manipulate an implantable device, home monitor, or clinic programmer….
As with any connected medical device and especially implanted life-supporting or life-sustaining devices, discuss the risk of cybersecurity vulnerabilities with your patients prior to implanting ICDs and CRT-Ds, along with other device risks and benefits, and take advantage of the latest software updates and improvements to devices.
The FDA reminds patients, patient caregivers, and health care providers that any medical device connected to a communications network (for example: wi-fi, public or home Internet) may have cybersecurity vulnerabilities that could be exploited by unauthorized users. However, the increased use of wireless technology and software in medical devices can also offer safer, more convenient, and timely health care delivery.”
2) From a US group, a comment on their website about an ITRON’s battery bursting into flame.
I work for a company I will not name but we install telecommunications and the maker of product is called Itron. We had a device backup battery sitting in the back of the truck absolutely connected to nothing and the bed of the truck erupted in a gulf of flames…. there’s no doubt in my mind what caused it.”
3) The Epoch Times has written some excellent articles on topics most newspapers shy away from, even the failures of the WHO. Here are but 2 recent examples about Wi-Fi in schools and 5G. And they are being picked up by media around the world, e.g. the 5G article from Ireland.
Wi-Fi in Schools: Experimenting With the Next Generation
Commercial wireless systems expose children to nation’s highest radiation levels
“Today, students are trading notebooks and textbooks for laptops, cellphones, iPads, and all manner of “smart” devices connected to a potent wireless infrastructure that lets them be used virtually anywhere on school grounds.
But that wireless web comes with a devastating downside. Doctors and scientists say that the students and teachers who attend these schools are risking their health.”
THE THREAT 5G POSES TO HUMAN HEALTH
What you don’t know will alarm you
“The crime scene was straight out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie. One hundred and fifty dead birds lay sprawled on the ground, fallen out of trees in a park in The Hague, Netherlands.
The second such occurrence last autumn made Dutch citizens look up and wonder. With robust starlings turned upside-down at their feet, the usual suspects of disease, pollution, and foul play were dismissed.
The culprit stood atop a nearby train station—a mast with new 5G network antennas. The test of the telecom system failed in more ways than imagined. As a result, the Dutch ministry postponed its 5G-spectrum auction until 2020….
The WHO is even more egregious for its failure to inform the public of the dangers of EMF radiation. A visit to its website and the sparse amount of obsolete material on EMF leads one to question the organization’s charter. Posted on the WHO’s website are six EMF studies: 1981, 1983, 1987, 1993, 2004, and 2007, and four publications that predate 2004.
Coming from the global gatekeeper of human health, which deemed EMF radiation “possibly carcinogenic” eight years ago, the WHO’s failure to inform is astonishing.”
4) In Dec. 2018 ARPANSA, the Australian equivalent to Health Canada, wrote an inaccurate, unsigned response to a request for info that is extremely similar to letters written by Health Canada, Dr. Bonnie Henry and her colleagues (Singer and Lambert). Dr. Martin Pall has provided a response to ARPANSA that is amazing in detail and by the fact that it notes that ARPANSA is equalled in its failure by FCC, WHO and others (e.g. Health Canada.) His response is available via a link in this article and, while long, it is well worth reading and has a lot of quotable information.
Emeritus Professor Martin Pall slams ARPANSA response
“Professor Martin Pall’s 28-page forensic analysis of ARPANSA’s letter, which includes reference to his own document on the risks of 5G and other EMF, is a chilling indictment of the competence, professionalism and independence of ARPANSA. ARPANSA is the organisation that supposedly monitors and identifies radiation risks to Australians!
Pall notes that ARPANSA provided “not one iota of evidence that its exposure standard is based on scientific research or that it protects us from any, let alone all harmful effects nor that it protects people of all ages and health status against all known adverse effects of RF (the word they are using for microwave frequency) exposures”…”

Subject: Re: BC Hydro’s final report
Dear Mr. Wruck,
As based on BC Hydro report isn’t it enough evidence that BC Hydro deliberately pushing its unprofessional practice refusing to follow basic safety standards hiding under self assigned Tariff which exempts them from any liability. They refuse to acknowledge customers’ requests to schedule meter replacement appointment doing that instead in stealthy blitzkieg fashion just for saving their time, should be mentioned they just lie promising to arrange appointment which doesn’t happen indeed.
It is apparent they do not care of arcing replacing meters on full load, not they care pushing installations of the meters where there may be evident for professional electrician fact that the base has mechanical issues. The current practice where they blame meter bases issues as owned by end customers where the last ones have no way to control makes it a form of coercion. Those 25 of 33 incidents is arrogant disrespect to their customers, absolute dismissal of professional due care, and in fact is the foundation of more new coming issues.
How come we have that incomprehensible ongoing conduct from the public crown corporation? If they only operate their business in terms of so called “Risk Assessment” considering that 25 incidents out of millions installations is acceptable metric they need to remember that behind each of failure there is a risk to a real human life. Should real professional certified electrician do meters replacement those 25 reported issue would not happen unless the meters are prone to fail which is a matter of time test.
Nobody likes “conspiracy” talks yet looking at the scale of BC Hydro practice it is hard to imagine it is just technically driven company: more like they are hands of political agenda makers preying on ignorant masses. That is not a sane business model to follow where there is a potential of health hazards due to negligence.
Meter Base Electrical incident caused by mechanical failure of one or more meter base components. 25
BC Hydro reports 33 incidents,
