1) A lot of people have been added to the update list over the last few months and, to ensure they know the basics of 5G and why we are concerned, I am providing a couple of links to items I’ve shared before:

2) It is vital to have people with technical backgrounds (e.g. engineering and physics) to share our concerns about the inadequacy of the current exposure guidelines. Many of the people on the various Commissions, (e.g. ICNIRP) work in these fields, often with no relevant experience or education in the medical or health fields. Denis Henshaw provided this article and made a few notations, which I augmented. Some of this is quite technical but there are significant statements and recommendations I thought worth sharing.
Setting Guidelines for Electromagnetic Exposures and Research Needs
A few highlights:
Though recently revised to some extent, the [current] recommended limits on exposure have not changed very much since 1998.
However, over the last 20 years the evidence has become extremely strong that weaker EMF over the whole range for frequencies, from static through millimeter waves, can modify biological processes….
There is now solid experimental evidence and supporting theory showing that weak fields, especially but not exclusively at low frequencies, can modify reactive free radical concentrations and that changes in radical concentration and that of other signaling molecules, such as hydrogen peroxide and calcium, can modify biological processes….
The evidence that weak radiofrequency (RF) and low‐frequency fields can modify human health is still less strong, but the experiments supporting both conclusions are too numerous to be uniformly written off as a group….
A recent advisory panel has recommended to IARC that RF radiation be a part of the list of agents whose carcinogenicity is reassessed in the next 5‐year period [IARC, 2019].
However, taken as a group they do provide strong evidence that weak EMF can be sensed by biological systems, as well as suggestive evidence that fields may affect human health.
But there is also a growing collection of scientific results from laboratories in the United States, Europe, Japan, China, and elsewhere that says that EMF do have effects….
Given the way the current product liability law works, an able lawyer might well convince a jury that exposures within the current limits have caused cancer, cognitive disabilities in children, etc., which could cost billions of dollars.
Currently, our standards seem to be effective in preventing easily demonstrated biological damage for short‐term exposure for most people. However, it is not clear whether the biological effects seen for lower levels of exposure and long‐term exposure are not resulting in medical problems for a much larger number of people.
What is missing in the current guidelines or regulations are guidelines for long‐term exposure to weak EMF.
3) Another technical paper which was written to refute any assertions, regardless of the source, that microwave radiation (non-ionizing radiation) cannot damage DNA. Dr. Henshaw is a very respected expert and, if nothing else, please share the summary of this paper with anyone who questions whether radiation from Wi-Fi or a cell phone can cause DNA damage.
Cell phone radio waves have insufficient energy to damage DNA and cause serious illness – an enduring fallacy
“The idea that since cell phone radio waves do not have the quantum energy to damage DNA and therefore cannot cause ill health is a fallacy. It is flawed at a number of levels, from the very physics upon which it is supposedly based, to chemistry and biology. Most of all, the idea is not born out by the tens of thousands of peer-reviewed studies reporting biological effects from exposure to electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields and electromagnetic radiation, including those associated with radio wave frequencies used by cell phones.”
4) Here is the recording of the webinar that the Transition Wolfville Area group in Nova Scotia hosted on Saturday, Stop 5g Day. Let me admit right off, in my intro I misspoke about the number of people in BC. The 1.8 million is the number of homes, not people. I hope/think everything else is accurate. The group did an amazing job with PowerPoint slides and one member, Andrea Wyile, made a lovely video about her experience as someone who is sensitive.
