1) Dr. Portier, who has a very impressive CV, has written an amazing report for plaintiffs in the lawsuit Murray v. Motorola in which he examines many studies done since 2010 to find if there are clear mechanisms by which RF might cause cancers. In 2011, EMF from all sources was classified a 2B (possible human) carcinogen and one major reason for it not being classified as a probable or true carcinogen was unclear mechanisms. Dr. Portier’s opinion is that the probability of RF causing various types of brain cancers is very high. He also reviews and provides opinions on other cancers and the probability of RF being the cause. Is this not enough to demand the implementation of the Precautionary Principle?

Expert Report by Former U.S. Government Official Concludes High Probability Radio Frequency Radiation Causes Brain Tumors
“Christopher J. Portier, Ph.D., former director of the National Center for Environmental Health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), and a scientific advisor for the World Health Organization (WHO), recently completed an expert report on brain tumor risk from exposure to radio frequency (RF) radiation used in cellphone technology.
After completing a comprehensive review of the scientific literature, Dr. Portier concluded:
“In my opinion, RF exposure probably causes gliomas and neuromas and, given the human, animal and experimental evidence, I assert that, to a reasonable degree of scientific certainty, the probability that RF exposure causes gliomas and neuromas is high.”
Dr. Portier’s 176-page expert report including 443 references was prepared for the plaintiffs in a major product liability lawsuit, Murray et al. v Motorola, Inc. et al., filed in the Superior Court for the District of Columbia against the telecommunications industry. The report appears as Exhibit 3 in a recent filing with the Court.”
The entire 176 page report is available at:

2) As pointed out by a member, the line between internet and cell phone service is blurring and this explains why Telus, for example, uses the term “wireless mobile” when speaking of either or both services.
Elon Musk’s Starlink filings show plans for phone service and low-income web access
“It appears that Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite constellation is not just aiming to provide high-speed internet service. Based on recent filings to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Starlink also plans to introduce a suite of related products to its portfolio, from a dedicated phone service, emergency backup for voice calls, and more affordable internet access for low-income customers through the US government’s Lifeline program.
Details of Starlink’s expanded services were mentioned in SpaceX’s petition to the FCC for a designation as an Eligible Telecommunications Carrier (ETC).”
3) From some friends in Nova Scotia, Say No To 5G.
“We are planning to hold a protest in Wolfville this Saturday at noon where we will distribute information. I’m sharing the materials we’ve put together with you in the hope that others across the province (of NS) and country might take them up too. One is a postcard to the Minister of Health and one is a legal page of excerpts from C4ST’s Fact Checking of “Safety” Code 6 document. All this info is also available on the SayNoTo5G.ca website.”
The postcard is generic and can be mailed by anyone.
