2021-07-06 Cell phones & increases in thyroid cancer

1) A reminder about what I believe will be a very important webinar, on Thursday.  CEPA currently does not include EMF/RF as a toxic substance even though it is a 2B carcinogen. We need to work to have this omission corrected.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Perspectives on Bill C-28 and the proposed changes to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA)

The Canadian Environmental Law Association and Nature Canada invite you to a webinar for civil society.

Date: Thursday July 8, 2021

Time: 1:00 p.m. (Eastern Time); 2:00 p.m. (Atlantic Time); 10:00 a.m. (Pacific Time) (length 1 hr 15 mins)

2) A very thought-provoking article by Kate Kheel of Stop 5G International.

Riffing on the 4th of July — Reflections on meeting the challenges of our times

“The Fourth of July commemorates the day the thirteen colonies in the “New World” declared independence from the United Kingdom of Great Britain. What is independence? How does it inform our culture and minds? Are we in-dependent or inter-dependent beings…or perhaps both? And might there be merit in also acknowledging and commemorating on this day (or another) our inter-dependence with all life forms and Earth?…

If we sense our inter-dependence and inherent oneness, what follows naturally is respect and care for all living beings and Earth herself. For wherefore goes another, therefor go I. We pivot from a place of viewing ourselves and others as separate beings either controlling or being controlled by another, to inter-dependence where we understand and feel that we, all living beings, the Earth and Heavens are one inter-connected, inter-reliant Being.

Residing solely in the independency/dependency model of the world, if left unchecked, can lead to societal actions that may bring us to the edge of extinction – E.g. Nuclear war, the 5G/satellite/IoT/AI/systems warfare juggernaut, or Climate Change.”



3) Cell phones were used widely in Scandinavian countries before they were used in North America, so these countries signal what will lies in wait for Canada and the USA. The thyroid gland is very close to the cell phone antenna when held close to the head and incidence has more than tripled in the last 40 years, with the greatest increase in recent years. See the graph — the rate is nearly vertical since 2010.

Is the Increasing Incidence of Thyroid Cancer in the Nordic Countries Caused by Use of Mobile Phones?

“During use of the handheld wireless phone, especially the smartphone, the thyroid gland is a target organ. During the 21st century, the incidence of thyroid cancer is increasing in many countries. We used the Swedish Cancer Register to study trends from 1970 to 2017. During that time period, the incidence increased statistically significantly in women with average annual percentage change (AAPC) +2.13%, 95% confidence interval (CI) +1.43, +2.83%. The increase was especially pronounced during 2010–2017 with annual percentage change (APC) +9.65%, 95% CI +6.68, +12.71%.”

4) A new blog by Mary Anne Tierney, a nurse in North Carolina, who hopes to provide information about how to travel more safely EMF-wise this summer and always. Lots of good suggestions.

Tech Safe Travel: an Opportunity for Low-EMF Family Fun

• “Do not use the phone up to your head. Use speaker mode to limit radiation to the brain.
• Avoid carrying the phone against your body, like in a pocket, sock, or bra.
• Make only short or essential calls on cell phones.
• If you plan to watch a movie on your device, download it first, then switch to “airplane mode” while you watch, in order to avoid unnecessary radiation exposure.
• Keep an eye on the signal strength (ie: how many bars you have). The weaker the signal, the harder your phone has to work and the more radiation it gives off.
• Avoid making calls in cars, elevators, trains, and buses. The cell phone works harder (and emits more radiation) to get a signal through metal.
• Remember that cell phones are not toys or teething items. ~ from AAP’s HealthyChildren.org

While in a car or plane:

• Keep your devices on Airplane mode; allows phone calls to go to voicemail.
• Step out of the car to make cell phone calls and text; rest areas are ideal for tech stops
• Disable the car’s Blue Tooth by going to Settings on most dashboards. This may also reduce the symptom of “brain fog” from wireless radiation, and make driving a safer experience.”
