2021-01-27 Apple warns: keep iPhone12 6-12 inches away from medical devices

1) In the Jan. 11 update (1) – https://stopsmartmetersbc.com/2021-01-11-iphone-12-stops-implantable-defibrillator/), I shared info about the iPhone12 stopping an implantable defibrillator. Now Apple is warning customers about possible interference with implants and Heart Rhythm Journal provided even stronger warnings in a CNN program.

Apple: Keep iPhone12 at least six inches from pacemakers

Apple recommended keeping the iPhone 12 six inches away from any medical devices as they might have sensors that respond to the magnets and radios. The device should be kept 12 inches away if it is wirelessly charging….

“We hereby bring an important public health issue concerning the newer generation iPhone 12 which can potentially inhibit lifesaving therapy in a patient particularly while carrying the phone in upper pockets,” the Heart Rhythm Journal reported.””


2) A group of experts from several University of California campuses will try to figure out why bees are disappearing. There are several “stressors” identified but no mention of EMR which is known to negatively affect bees, their navigational ability and their immune system. What is worrisome is having engineers as part of the group and the intent to develop new “technologies”.   Might there be transmitters involved for tracking, for example?

“We have experience with molecular-focused approaches from systems biology and chemical ecology. A community ecologist and evolutionary biologist will broaden the scope of our work to include consequences of stressor effects. These broad biology skill sets will combine with those of team members with engineering expertise.”…

Integrate new insights to develop innovatives technologies that benefit bees assessment and reduce proposed threats.”

3) Our bodies are most vulnerable to effects of EMF when sleeping, the time when our bodies should be able to repair damage incurred during the day. Studies have shown that EMR exposure while awake decreases melatonin production, as does exposure to blue light. Other studies have shown that sleep and repair are impaired if there is EMF in the bedroom Some experts advise not sleeping on beds with metal frames or coils because EMR will use these as antenna, increasing exposure. Here is a report on effects of sleeping on a bed shielded from EMF.

The use of a bed with an insulating system of electromagnetic fields improves immune function, redox and inflammatory states, and decrease the rate of aging.

“Conclusions: In conclusion, 2 months of resting on a bed insulated from EMFs demonstrates improvement in immune function, oxidative-inflammatory state and biological age.”

Subject: Donations needed to support the Coalition to Stop Smart Meters,,

Dear Members,

Re: Donations needed to support the Coalition to Stop Smart Meters Organization

Wouldn’t it be great if the Coalition had enough money to post a full-page ad in the newspapers about the proven health risks from cell towers?

How about bringing a scientist or medical expert to present the facts to the public?

How about having access to flyers, brochures and banners for rallies and protests?

How about being able to keep our existing Coalition to Stop Smart Meters Website full of the most current information on wireless technology?

Imagine if it was the BC Government that finally stepped up and did their duty by funding these projects to protect the public from harm?

The BC Government is offering $500 for individuals and $1,000 (tax free), for families within certain incomes for COVID-19 relief. I have an idea for those people who don’t feel they need this support: why not donate a portion of it to the Coalition, and let the government pay for some of the services that the government has failed to provide, e.g. education on the safe use of wireless tech?


We would like to thank the Coalition, which is comprised entirely of volunteers, for over 10 years of their time and devotion to this cause.
