Are Bluetooth Headphones Dangerous? Here’s What Experts Think
“Last week the internet was abuzz with news that Bluetooth and wireless headphones could boost your risk for cancer.
Coverage took off when a story posted to Medium referencing an appeal from 2015 in which 247 scientists from 42 countries expressed their concern about the health effects associated with exposure to the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) emitted from wireless devices…
Although there’s been substantial research on the health risks associated with EMFs, there’s been very little on the safety of long-term radiation exposure from Bluetooth or wireless headphones, according to Joel M. Moskowitz, PhD, the director of the Center for Family and Community Health at University of California, Berkeley.
While we currently don’t know the exact health risks associated with chronic use of in-ear wireless earbuds, scientists are beginning to understand the potential harm they may cause.”
2) Many in the Coalition suffer from EHS. Here is a link that I’ve shared before, but one member suggested that I share again for new members. A lot of info about what is happening in other countries, from legal decsion to areas of refuge for victims to heal.
3) Regarding the item in last night‘s update about Telus’s new tower with 30 transmitters [2) – https://stopsmartmetersbc.com/2019-03-24-new-telus-tower-with-30-transmitters/], a member told me that Telus owns the land it sits on, near residences in French Creek. It will be interesting when Telus, as the landowner, is sued because people are becoming ill thanks to their radiation-emitters. Apparently that was one of the reasons that the many people who protested this tower lost their fight.
4) Below is the type of article that is needed in every local newspaper [https://stopsmartmetersbc.com/contacts-media/], one that educates about EMR, especially 5G. I hope you will consider writing to the editor of Valley Voice, thanking her for allowing such great info to reach the public which, to date, has not had the opportunity to learn about what is going on, the scientific evidence that is being ignored. We need to encourage, and thank, such publishers, as well as the author.

Coming 5G rollout protested by international scientists by Art Joyce
Increasing concerns are being voiced around the world about the impending rollout of 5G (fifth generation) wireless – the technology engineered to enable the ‘internet of things’ and driverless cars. In an international appeal, 230 scientists from more than 40 countries have expressed “serious concerns” about the resulting increase of exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMF). As of February 22, organizations from 107 countries and 27,810 individuals have also signed the appeal.
The appeal, headed by Finnish professor emeritus Rainer Nyberg and Professor Lennart Hardell of Sweden’s University Hospital Department of Oncology at Örebro, urges the European Union to “take all reasonable measures to halt the 5G expansion until independent scientists can assure that 5G and the total radiation levels caused by RFEMF (5G together with 2G, 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi) will not be harmful for EU citizens, especially infants, children and pregnant women, as well as the environment.” Dr. Hardell is one of the world’s leading researchers on the potential health impacts of microwave frequency wireless radiation.
A large body of science that dates back to the 1970s and earlier – much of it military research only recently declassified – supports the appeal. Most recently, a 2017 National Toxicology Program study in the US reported “clear evidence” of an association between cellphone radiation and cancer in rats. At scientific conferences in Israel and Colorado in 2018, Dr. Anthony Miller announced that the science on wireless radiation has reached a consensus of risk. Physicians for Safe Technology announced in 2017 that, “it appears that we are at the same point of emerging science similar to early recognition of health impacts associated with tobacco, asbestos, coal dust and lead.” Studies co-funded by the wireless industry naturally tend to report the opposite conclusion, just as was done in the 1990s with global climate change studies or tobacco studies in the 1950s and ’60s.
What has scientists concerned is that 5G uses an even higher frequency in the microwave spectrum known as a millimetre wave. A recently released Russian study that dates from the 1970s was only declassified by the CIA in 2012 and details a long list of serious health implications from exposure to millimetre waves. Studies conducted by Russian scientists “revealed that millimetre waves caused changes in the body manifested in structural alterations in the skin and internal organs, qualitative and quantitative changes of the blood and bone marrow composition…” It was known by military scientists on both sides of the Cold War that microwave frequencies lead to a “change of the functions of the nervous, cardiovascular and other systems,” dubbed “microwave sickness” at the time. Because of its weak penetrating ability, millimetre waves are absorbed primarily by the skin, but this can create a kind of secondary broadcasting of radiation into the body. Even in the surface layer of skin, the Russian report noted demyelination of nerve fibres, a pathology implicated in diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS), GuillainBarré syndrome and others.
Because millimetre waves are easier to block than 4G systems, it will require millions more antennas – about one every 10-12 houses. In order to create the so-called ‘smart’ home of the future, all new household appliances will be equipped with a radio chip to communicate with the 5G network, resulting in an estimated 10-20 billion connections worldwide. If the thousands of satellites proposed for the network are also launched, this too will vastly increase exposure. Already with standard 4G networks, European guidelines published in 2016 state that “there is strong evidence that long-term exposure to certain EMFs is a risk factor for diseases such as certain cancers, Alzheimer’s disease, and male infertility… Common EHS (electromagnetic hypersensitivity) symptoms include headaches, concentration difficulties, sleep problems, depression, lack of energy, fatigue, and flu-like symptoms.”
In 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified EMFs of frequencies 30 kilohertz to 300 gigahertz as “possibly carcinogenic” to humans (Group 2B). However, the appeal concludes that new data from the NTP study and other epidemiological investigations including the latest studies on mobile phone use and brain cancer risks “confirm that RF-EMF radiation is carcinogenic to humans.” The appeal identifies further health concerns, including increases in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and more. “Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plant and animal life.”
Select cities in North America are slated to be test sites for the deployment of 5G, including Vancouver, Sacramento, and Indianapolis. AT&T began testing millimetre wave transmissions in 2016 in Austin and Waco, Texas and recently added Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina, and Oklahoma City. Sprint plans to launch its 5G network this year and has listed New York, Phoenix, Kansas City, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington as target markets.
