1) Dafna sent a follow-up with links that can be easily shared. Her interview covered a lot of topics and, hopefully, will reach people who are unaware of the RF/5G issue.
Is 5G The Enemy?
“This is a follow-up to my email from a couple of days ago (see below) regarding ‘The Highwire‘ interview. Yesterday they sent me my segment as a separate video. I thought it might be good to send it so those of you who are interested can share only the part of the program that has to do with 5G.

2) Experts from the UK are warning that 5G’s energy requirements are great and that they will increase with more data transmitted plus more devices with shorter lifespans. The impact on the environment by 5G has been ignored to a great degree while the public is misled about the benefits.
More evidence needed to establish 5G’s green credentials
“The academics from the Sussex Energy Group also warn that the widespread adoption of unlimited data subscriptions for 5G users and the facilitation of advanced and data-intensive mobile services such as VR and more sophisticated mobile gaming could encourage energy-intensive user practices, contribute to ever-growing levels of data traffic, and counteract the energy-saving potential of 5G efficiency improvements.
The need for large-scale infrastructure updates every decade to accommodate new generation mobile networks and the even shorter lifespan of smartphones leave a significant environmental impact which must be combatted through the modular design of network infrastructure, right to repair legislation and bans on planned obsolescence from manufacturers, details the newly-published study in Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews….
”Our review suggests that work on the energy use implications of 5G has overwhelmingly focused on the energy required to power mobile phone networks. However, the energy required to manufacture and install network equipment and manufacture mobile phones is a potentially important part of the puzzle that seems to be routinely overlooked in assessments of 5G’s energy use….
“We have identified a number of potentially significant shortcomings of the evidence base on the energy use implications of 5G. The surprising lack of peer-reviewed, publicly available whole network level assessments on the energy use implications of 5G, and patchy disclosure of the key data and assumptions of those studies that do exist, currently make it impossible to conclude with any confidence that 5G will reduce the energy consumption of mobile networks.”
3) A tribute by Kate Kheel to a long-time activist who dedicated his life to making this world a happier, better place. The video says so much that we need to remember as we work together on so many issues.
Jim will be sorely missed by those who seek to make this world a better place for all.
Personally, working with Jim on the “SafeG” branding, (www.safeg.net) in 2018, I felt his optimism, and genuine joie de vivre. For decades, Jim was always on the cutting edge and the “right side” of countless issues. Jim viewed current affairs through a lens of a deep and quite extraordinary understanding of history — political as well as cultural, philosophical, and religious. Though we were not in touch much these last few years, I will miss knowing I could turn to him for solid judgement and clarity.
Wishing peace and solace to his family and to our community.”
Jim Turner, a towering figure in the movement for consumer choice in health care, passed away suddenly on January 25, 2022, at the age of 81. Jim was a valued lawyer, strategist and advisor to practitioners, producers, organizations, and individuals in advancing homeopathy, acupuncture, chiropractic, and the broad field of energy medicine. He also developed and promoted policies to reduce public health threats from radio frequency emissions, dangerous dental materials, and unsafe food additives and drugs. As co-founder and co-editor of The Transpartisan Review (www.transpartisanreview.org) he helped present an alternative perspective to the left-right dichotomy. Contributions can be made to Citizens for Health Education Foundation at www.citizens.org.
Message from Voices of Freedom:
This week our community suffered a great loss. Jim Turner, a giant of consumer advocacy and protection, passed away. Since the 1960s, he has worked tirelessly to protect consumers and promote positive change. He was an inspiration and a friend to all of us at ANH, and will be greatly missed!
In this interview, as part of our Voices of Freedom series, Jim spoke about the power of personal advocacy in enacting change with his usual intelligence and candor.
Rest in peace old friend!
“What if our religion was each other. If our practice was our life. If prayer, our words. What if the temple was the Earth. If forests were our church. If holy water–the rivers, lakes, and ocean. What if meditation was our relationships. If the teacher was life. If wisdom was self-knowledge. If love was the center of our being.” ~ Ganga Whit
