1) Dr. Hardell is asking that this opinion piece be shared to encourage research by scientists who are unbiased, with no conflicts of interest. This is a very important document and well-worth reading and sharing. The authors are stating, unequivocally, that the evidence is sufficiently strong for EMR to be classified as a carcinogen and would have been if not for conflicts of interests. They name names of those who are guilty of twisting science for the benefit of industry.

Health risks from radiofrequency radiation, including 5G, should be assessed by experts with no conflicts of interest
“The evaluation of RF radiation health risks from 5G technology is ignored in a report by a government expert group in Switzerland and a recent publication from The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection. Conflicts of interest and ties to the industry seem to have contributed to the biased reports. The lack of proper unbiased risk evaluation of the 5G technology places populations at risk. Furthermore, there seems to be a cartel of individuals monopolizing evaluation committees, thus reinforcing the no-risk paradigm. We believe that this activity should qualify as scientific misconduct.”…
In conclusion, it is important that all experts evaluating scientific evidence and assessing health risks from RF radiation do not have COIs or bias. Being a member of ICNIRP and being funded by the industry directly, or through an industry funded foundation, constitute clear COIs. Furthermore, it is recommended that the interpretation of results from studies on health effects of RF radiation should take sponsorship from the telecom or other industry into account. It is concluded that the ICNIRP has failed to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of health risks associated with RF radiation. The latest ICNIRP publication cannot be used for guidelines on this exposure.”
2) Kate Kheel has provided information about the 3rd meeting of international lawyers to discuss 5G. In the link below, you can find the transcript for the second meeting [https://drive.google.com/file/d/1m80Uk3mev3Ax8QSRiKDKTAJrKfxwfn7x/view], which might be of interest to many of you. These meetings are intended primarily for attorneys, barristers, judges and legislators, but others may listen to the discussion.
3) The telecoms are going wild in the National Parks in the US and probably in Canada, too. Sadly, even though the Sierra Club is expressing dismay about the change in character of the parks, the people forgetting how to enjoy wilderness, quiet and beauty, there is nothing about health of the natural flora and fauna that will be exposed to ever increasing electrosmog. Sierra Club should be working with us to stop further invasion. To this point, in an update a few nights ago, there was info about a resolution by the California chapter of Sierra Club asking the US Sierra Club Chapter to support a moratorium on 5G. I learned that the California Chapter’s request was refused. [1) – http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/2019-02-10-sierra-club-of-calif-confronts-5g/]
Wi-fi in the wilderness
“Land of primeval character? The imprint of man’s work substantially unnoticeable? Outstanding opportunities for solitude or a primitive and unconfined type of recreation? Once there’s a cell signal, all that goes out the window. “Spillover into the backcountry is offensive,” Howie Wolke, a longtime board member of the nonprofit Wilderness Watch, told me. “If you want to be connected, go to Disneyland. One of the important values of wilderness is the feeling of remoteness one gets in a wild and natural environment.””

Subject: proposed cell tower in Qualicum
I am writing to the Town of Qualicum Beach to share my concerns regarding the proposed installation of a cell tower in Qualicum Beach. There are cell towers near my home and I feel their radiation, confirmed by my Electrosmog meter. I feel nauseous, weird sensations of waves in my head, sometimes cognitive dysfunction, and unable to work outdoors at times. This is not just in my imagination. When BC Hydro forced two Smart Meters on our home, not only did I experience cognitive and memory dysfunction, my husband had a stroke one week after the installation and a second stroke a week after that. We had to pay a lot of money for mitigation measures. Our feral cat that slept outside along the wall where the Smart Meters are located started to develop mange, lost a lot of fur, increasingly became ill and died. On the cedar hedge by the house wall with the Smart Meters, the branches have turned mostly brown next to the house, while the outer branches remain green.
Health Canada Safety Code 6 does not recognize non-thermal radiation, that is, electromagnetic radiation (EMR) that comes from cell phones, cordless phones, microwave ovens, Wi-Fi, cell towers, radar and electrical appliances. We are now being bathed in microwave radiation. I personally know several persons, young and old, who have had strokes and unexplained seizures, where EMR levels have been very high. Is it any wonder there are so many well-known people, who have died of brain cancers/gliomas in recent years? Does anyone ever wonder why there is such an increase in dementia in our society? Cancer? EMR is an unnatural, widely prevalent biological stressor over which we have less and less control.
In general, most people do not understand electricity and non-ionizing radiation very well. It is up to citizens to learn as much as they can and to educate each other, because our governments will not take the responsibility to protect us. Of course, this cannot be said of the Town of Qualicum Beach, because they have not yet decided to give permission to a telecom to install a cell tower in its midst. One reason expressed for the need for a cell tower was to have increased emergency response. Best to make the decision that protects citizens’ health, so there will not be an increased need for emergency calls to rush more people to the hospital with strokes, heart attacks, seizures, and other dire effects that can be caused by electromagnetic radiation. In addition, all levels of our governments must be proactive in learning about the effects of EMR to educate and teach the public how to best protect and distance themselves from the phenomenon that has given us so much amazing technology, but is harming us at the same time.
Most Sincerely and Concerned,
Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters
