The Environmental Health Trust published “Cell Phone Radiation Scandal: More Exposure Than Manufacturers Claim ‘PhoneGate’  In France, government data release reveals 9 out of 10 phones tested exceed regulatory limits” [1].

The French ANFR published online on June 1, 2017, a listing of cell phone data “details of make, model and test results for each cell phone that was tested, after months of legal action by French physician Dr. Marc Arazi.”

According to Environmental Health Trust,

Popular brands such as Apple, Motorola, Samsung and Nokia were among the cell phone models tested. When tested in contact with the body, some phones have test results as high as triple the manufacturer’s previously reported radiation levels.  [1] [CJF emphasis]

Here’s something that for the life of me, I cannot understand parents permitting or allowing their toddlers to play with!

Dr. Arazi replied with the following statement as a result of a French court order to publish the results of cell phone radiation exposure when used next to the human body, as most cell phones are handled, even worn “live” in women’s bras, men’s trouser pants pockets, on belts, or anywhere on the body:

As a physician, I am deeply concerned about what this means for our health and especially the health of our children. People have a right to know that when cell phones are tested in ways people commonly use phones – such as in direct contact with their body – the values exceed current regulatory limits. This is a first victory for transparency in this industry scandal.

Here are Dr. Arazi’s less than 2 minute comments about the French court’s decision on cell phone radiation dangers.

After years of secrecy, cellphone radiation risks are finally being revealed

In 2015, New York Times writer Nick Bilton wrote an article entitled “The Health Concerns in Wearable Tech,” warning the public that devices like smartphones and Apple Watches emit a low-level radiation which has been linked to cancer, brain tumors and other problems when worn close to the body for extended periods. His article was based on a press release issued by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in May of 2011, which warned, “The WHO/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B), based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer1, associated with wireless phone use.”

Bilton was not praised for his public health warning; in fact, the mainstream media attacked him, with many calling for his dismissal from the Times.

The truth is, there is ample evidence that radiofrequency electromagnetic fields emitted by cell phones and other devices could cause brain cancer. This has just been reinforced yet again, in a document released by the California Department of Public Health, entitled simply “Cell Phones and Health.”

The Department has been sitting on the document, which has been revised several times, for the past seven years, refusing to make it public. It was only when Joel Moskowitz, director of the Center for Family and Community Health at UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health, sued the Department last year, and the judge indicated that she would order the release of the document, that the Department made it public.

The document states clearly, “Health officials are concerned about possible health effects from cell phone EMFs because some recent studies suggest that long-term cell phone use may increase the risk of brain cancer and other health problems.” [Emphasis added]

It also notes that studies have found that people diagnosed with certain forms of brain cancer are more likely to have used cellphones in the preceding decade and that the cancers usually occurred on the side of the head that their cellphones were most often used on. It adds, “These studies suggest that regular cell phone use increases the risk of developing some kinds of brain cancer.” (RELATED: Read more about how cell phones are a ticking time-bomb when it comes to cancer here.)

The use of cell phones clearly carries serious health risks, but with modern society so dependent on them, it is unrealistic to think that people will be able to totally end their use. It is, therefore, important to know how to utilize this technology in the safest possible way.

An earlier Natural News article provided several tips on how to protect yourself from cell phone radiation, including:

  1. Reduce the amount of time you spend talking on your cell phone, keeping in mind that every 2-minute phone call disrupts brain activity for up to an hour.
  2. Send text messages rather than making phone calls.
  3. Replace your cell phone with one that emits less radiation. A list of suggestions can be found here.
  4. The jury is still out on whether or not they will really be less damaging in the long-term, but it still might be worth using a headset or speaker rather than talking directly on your cell phone.
  5. Avoid using your cell phone in elevators or other metal enclosures, including your car, as more power is needed to connect the call, emitting more radiation in the process.
  6. A similar problem arises when your cell phone’s battery is low, so charge it before you use it.
  7. If you have to use your phone directly without a headset or speaker, wait until the person you’re calling actually answers before putting it to your ear.

So, the reality is that you probably have to use a cell phone, but by limiting its use and applying the suggestions above, you can try to make the process less damaging to your health.

A once-secret document detailing links between cell phones and brain cancer has been released by order of a California court. Entitled, “Cell Phones and Health,” the document was demanded in a lawsuit filed by Joel Moskowitz, Ph.D., director of the Center for Family and Community Health at UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health.

Click here to read the full document, copied to Natural News servers.

“I would like this document to see the light of day because it will inform the public that there is concern within the California Department of Public Health that cellphone radiation is a risk, and it will provide them with some information about how to reduce those risks,” Moskowitz told a local CBS affiliate.

The document says that “long-term cell phone use may increase the risk of brain cancer and other health problems” and admits that “cell phone EMFs can affect nearby cells and tissues.” In a special warning section about children, it also explains that “EMFs can pass deeper into a child’s brain than an adult’s.”

EMF stands for ElectroMagnetic Field. Follow more news about EMF at EMF.news. According to the document, there’s no evidence that EMF blocking devices for cell phones actually work, by the way. (I haven’t personally tested any in my lab, so I can’t say whether this is true or false, but from a commonsense scientific point of view, if they really blocked EMF signals from the phone, the phone would no longer be able to make calls because it couldn’t communicate with cell towers.)

California government deliberately hid this information from the public

The California government actively hid this document from the public for at least seven years, likely under pressure from industry lobbyists who have long sought to conceal the evidence of harm caused by cell phone radiation. In the same way that biotech companies seek to conceal the harm of GMOs… and pesticides manufacturers conceal the harm of pesticides… and vaccine promoters conceal the harm of mercury in vaccines, the cell phone industry doesn’t want any evidence linking EMFs and brain cancer to see the light of day.

In truth, your brain is under a massive chemical, electromagnetic and propaganda assault on a daily basis. Some of the many attacks on your brain include:

– Brain-damaging fluoride in the public water supply

– Mercury preservatives in flu shots

– Pesticides in non-organic food products

– EMFs from mobile phones

– WiFi broadcast signals

– Fake news media propaganda

– Brain-altering medications such as antidepressants

Cell Phones and Health

Cell phones, like other electronic devices, emit a kind of energy called radiofrequency EMFs (electromagnetic fields). Health officials are concerned about possible health effects from cell phone EMFs because some recent studies suggest that long-term cell phone use may increase the risk of brain cancer and other health problems. For those concerned about possible health problems, this fact sheet provides information about how to lower exposure to EMFs from cell phones.

What do we know about cell phones and health?

Several studies have found that people with certain kinds of brain cancer were more likely to have used cell phones for 10 years or more. Most of the cancers were on the same side of the head that people usually held their phones. Although the chance of developing brain cancer is very small, these studies suggest that regular cell phone use increases the risk of developing some kinds of brain cancer. Some studies have also linked exposure to EMFs from cell phones to fertility problems. As more studies are done and we learn more about possible risks for cancer and other health problems linked to cell phone use, the recommendations on this fact sheet may change.

What are EMFs?

EMFs are types of radiation. They are created by all electronic devices. Some devices, such as watches, create weak EMFs that are considered harmless. Others, like X-ray machines, generate very strong EMFs that can damage cells and tissues, and cause cancer and other health effects. This is why we try to only use X-rays when necessary. Cell phones make relatively weak EMFs, somewhat less than those from microwave ovens, but because they are used frequently and kept close to the head and body, cell phone EMFs can affect nearby cells and tissues.

EMF exposure from cell phones

Your exposure to cell phone EMFs depends mostly on your distance from the phone, the strength of the EMF, and how long and how often you use the phone. The farther away the phone is from your body, the lower the exposure. Your cell phone produces stronger EMFs at the start of a call, when it is trying to connect to a cell tower, and also when only one or two bars are showing. Your phone also emits stronger EMFs when used in a moving car, bus, or train, as the phone switches connections from one cell tower to another. Finally, some phones produce stronger EMFs than others.

What can I do to reduce my exposures to EMFs from cell phones?

To lower your exposure to EMFs from cell phones:

Increase the distance between you and your phone by:

  • Using the speaker phone.
  • Sending text messages.
  • Use a headset and carry your phone away from your body. EMFs from wireless (Bluetooth) and wired headsets are usually weaker than those from a cell phone.
  • Keep your phone away from your body. A cell phone that is on can emit EMFs even when it is not being used. Do not sleep with your cell phone near you or carry it in a pocket or directly on your body unless the phone is turned off.

Limit your cell phone use when reception is weak or increase the distance between you and the phone. When your phone shows only one or two bars, it is emitting stronger EMFs than when three, four, or five bars are showing.

Reduce the amount of time spent talking on a cell phone.

  • Keep cell phone calls short, even when using a wireless or wired headset.
  • Use speaker phone mode or a corded phone for longer conversations.

Corded phones produce very weak EMFs.

Take off your headset when you’re not on a call. Wireless and wired headsets emit EMFs even when you are not using your phone.

Do not rely on devices that claim to shield or neutralize EMFs from cell phones. These devices have not been shown to reduce exposures.

What about cell phone EMFs and children?

EMFs can pass deeper into a child’s brain than an adult’s. Also, the brain is still developing through the teen years, which may make children and teens more sensitive to EMF exposures. For these reasons, parents may want to limit their child’s cell phone use to texting, important calls, and emergencies. Pregnant women, children, and teens can also follow the tips for reducing exposure listed above.

Where can I get more information?

Government deception, media deception, climate science mass omission, and an unfortunately large percentage of populations that are generally more interested in fueling their own ideology than finding facts. Record high US stock market numbers are accompanied by massive layoffs, what’s wrong with this picture? It has recently again been over 50 degrees colder in the lower 48 states than at the North Pole, how can that be? Global shipping is crashing, ship building contractors are laying off, but the US military can still afford 126 Billion dollar submarines. More recent earthquakes in Japan may have further accelerated the massive Fukushima radiation releases, is this why the US EPA is trying to secretly raise the “safe limits” of radiation in our water supplies to levels that are 10,000 times higher than the already far too high limits? Power structure propaganda stories about Russian hacking remain as dubious as ever and were officially retracted by some sources, but the damage is done and most US citizens have already been deceived. In the meantime, global forests continue to die and the biosphere as a whole continues to crash, what’s next?

The “21st century cures act” just created the ministry of cancer

It appears the U.S. government is officially declaring war on cancer by launching a major bureaucratic initiative aimed at sending cancer research to the moon.

In a moment of suspiciously bi-partisan cooperation, both sides of the political aisle of the 114th United States Congress came together to pass House Resolution (H.R.) 34, the 21st Century Cures Act, which pledges a ton of taxpayer money to a broad range of disease and public health research programs, drug maker incentives, deregulation, and more.

“The 21st Century Cures Act has been two years in the making and it was one of the most heavily lobbied pieces of legislation in recent history. It pays for cancer research, pays to fight the epidemic of opioid abuse, funds mental health treatment, helps the Food and Drug Administration to speed up drug approvals and pushes better use of technology in medicine.” [Source]

The New York Times calls this bill a ‘Sweeping Health Measure,’ as it is the most significant piece of health related legislation since Obamacare. The L.A. Times calls it, ‘a huge handout to the drug industry disguised as a pro-research bounty. NBC News calls it, ‘one of the most heavily lobbied pieces of legislation in recent history,’ and PBS has declared it a big win for drug companies, medical device manufacturers, and the National Institutes of Health.

Others describe it as “a holiday win for much of the health sector.

Some are also pointing out the fact that the 21st Century Cures actually permits medical testing of experimental drugs on individuals, fast tracks the approval of drugs that may be harmful, and creates a program of surveillance and mandatory mental health screening under the auspices of public safety.

But no news source is reporting this as a win for the average American, and rightfully so, because this bill, like all government legislation, takes taxpayer money and gives it away to industries and government agencies while creating more rules and regulations for ordinary people.

“This gift — which 1,300 lobbyists, mostly from pharmaceutical companies, helped sell — comes at the expense of patient safety by undermining requirements for ensuring safe and effective medications and medical devices.” [Source]

All this aside, H.R. 34 may most notably be cited as the bill that officially begins the government’s war on cancer, as it launches Vice President Joe Biden’s Cancer Moonshot initiative. The Moonshot is much more than an Orwellian name, it is an elaborate and well-marketed global program which creates, in effect, a publicly subsidized cancer industrial complex, investing billions of dollars in the future of cancer treatment.

What exactly is the Moonshot?

It is a government ‘task force’ which will include a number of agencies and representatives of the private sector, operating with the following aims:

  • Accelerate our understanding of cancer and its prevention, early detection, treatment, and cure
  • Improve patient access and care
  • Support greater access to new research, data, and computational capabilities
  • Encourage development of cancer treatments
  • Identify and address any unnecessary regulatory barriers and consider ways to expedite administrative reforms
  • Ensure optimal investment of federal resources
  • Identify opportunities to develop public–private partnerships and increase coordination of the federal government’s efforts with the private sector, as appropriate

According to the website CancerMoonshot2020, the plan is to turn cancer into a manageable chronic condition, like diabetes, which creates lifelong, dedicated customers of the healthcare industry.

“Ultimately, the aim of the “moonshot” is to win the war on cancer — to get to a point in the very near future when we are managing cancer the same way we might manage any chronic disease, such as diabetes or asthma. When we can finally stop the toxic therapies, such as chemotherapy and radiation that decimate the immune system, and instead, rally the full power of the immune system and the body’s natural killer cells to fight off the cancer the way they were designed to do, the patient is not only surviving the diagnosis, but living – even thriving – with cancer.”

Chemotherapy and radiation are dangerous, but, with this plan, government invests nothing in research and development of natural cures and treatments, nor gives any mention of ending the FDA’s practice of driving independent researchers and forward thinking doctors out of the country and out of business.

It also does not acknowledge the fact that prescription drugs and a for profit medical system are killing us.

In short, the moonshot will give a ton of taxpayer money to private companies to develop new, highly expensive treatment products and procedures while continuing to ignore natural alternatives and the root causes of cancer.

“In pursuit of this mission, President Obama established the Cancer Moonshot Task Force charged with leveraging federal investments, targeted incentives, private sector efforts, patient engagement initiatives, and more, to support cancer research and enable progress in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Never before have so many government agencies come together—committing their leadership and uniting their focus—to tackle the challenges along the spectrum of cancer research and care to improve outcomes for patients.” [Source]

A new, broad-scoped government cancer program – the Ministry of Cancer. MiniCan.

Newspeak for New Times

When the government declares war on something, that something is guaranteed to grow, increase and exacerbate. The war on drugs means more drugs. The war on terror means more terrorists. The war on poverty produces higher poverty rates.

In the contemporary vernacular, moonshot means to send something to the moon, or have it take off, explode in reach and scope and proportion. In this case, cancer will no doubt be shooting to the moon in the greatest explosion cancer has ever seen.

Radiation Emitted From Smart Meters 100 Times Greater Than Cell Phones – And Exposure Is Constant, Doctors Warn

Smart meters

Source: NaturalNews.com
Jonathan Benson
July 8, 2016

Energy companies are billing them as the “green” solution to traditional meters. But are so-called “smart” meters really all that smart? And, more importantly, are they really as safe as we’re all being told they are?

Some 65 million American homes already have them, and more are being converted all the time, even against the will of some homeowners. And yet many doctors agree that smart meters are a potential health threat due to constant releases of radiation.

Smart meters operate via a two-way communications system in which energy usage is tabulated wirelessly inside the meter and transmitted to the energy company that owns it. No longer do energy trucks have to go around town once a month to check individual meters; everything is done automatically and wirelessly. Pretty simple, right?

It might be simple in functionality, but not so much in technicality. The constant pulses of energy as smart meters communicate both with electrical appliances inside the home, and with the energy company, are a radioactive threat that’s about 100 times greater than that of a mobile phone, science has found.

This is a tremendous radioactive load when you consider that smart meters operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The fact that they never turn off means they’re a lot like talking on a cell phone constantly, without end. But, it gets even worse.

Independent studies have revealed that both the strength and frequency of smart meter pulses make them exceptionally threatening. The Center for Electrosmog Prevention, a California nonprofit group, estimates that one smart meter emits the radiation equivalent of about 160 mobile phones. Other studies have concluded that smart meters emit not 100 but 1,000 times the radioactive load of a typical cell phone.

Daniel Hirsch, a radiation expert and instructor at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), published a paper refuting the findings of the California Council on Science and Technology (CCST), which concluded based on industry data that smart meters are safer than mobile phones. Hirsh countered that:

“… the cumulative whole body exposure from a Smart Meter at 3 feet appears to be approximately two orders of magnitude higher than that of a cell phone, rather than two orders of magnitude lower.”

Smart meter radiation is a constant threat to the health of you and your family

This is problematic, because electromagnetic pollution like the kind emitted by smart meters is highly damaging to the body. There are reports of chronic headaches, seizures, insomnia, dizziness, heart palpitations, tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and other symptoms associated with exposure to smart meters.

Even the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) agrees that smart meters are a potential threat, especially to people with preexisting health conditions. The group issued a recommendation stating that:

“… no Smart Meters be [in the homes of patients with neurological or neurodegenerative diseases, genetic defects, cancer, and other conditions] and that Smart Meters be removed to a reasonable distance from patients’ homes.”

This would be great if every household that’s been given or offered a smart meter had the option to reject it. But in most cases, customers are forced to accept a smart meter in place of their traditional meter – and if they are offered the choice of an “opt-out,” it’s often with the caveat that the customer pay a monthly penalty fee.

As a conscious consumer, it’s your job, as it is mine, to get the word out about smart meters. Start informing your friends, family members and neighbors about the dangers, and work together to fight against this coercive threat to our collective health.

Another way you can help combat the EMF radiation from smart meters if you already have one, is to diffuse calming essential oils in your home, which can help minimize the insomniac effects of constant exposure. Be sure to check out the Health Ranger’s Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser to learn more.

EPA Raising The Limit Of Radioactive Elements In Drinking Water By Over 3000 Times

Radiation in water
Source: NaturalNews.com
Mike Adams
July 2, 2016

We really have reached a point of such insanity across human civilization that governments have become the terrorists who actively seek to harm and kill off the people. The latest example demonstrating this very point is the fact that the EPA just announced its plan to allow gigantic increases in the allowable radioactivity in drinking water… increasing it by over 3,000 times in the case of radioactive Iodine-131… while calling it “safe” to drink even though it’s almost certain to give you cancer.

In this public EPA document, the agency says it was ordered by President Obama’s Executive Order 12656 (section 1601(2)) to “[d]evelop, for national security emergencies, guidance on acceptable emergency levels of nuclear radiation….”

In this report, the EPA warns that a nuclear “incident” may strike the United States, and if people are going to drink the radioactive water, somebody needs to decide how much radioactivity Americans will be allowed to consume.

From the EPA report:

A large scale radiation contamination incident could impact the United States, driving the need for a pre-established drinking water PAG. EPA is proposing a two-tiered intermediate phase drinking water PAG of 100 mrem projected dose in the first year for infants, children and pregnant or nursing women and 500 mrem projected dose in the first year for the general population.

250 chest X-Rays per year, directed at your thyroid gland

For the record, the allowable exposure now being pushed by the EPA is equivalent to 250 chest X-Rays in a single year, says ECO Watch. That’s a dose that’s almost certain to cause cancer. Allowable levels of specific radioactive elements would also be raised to obscene exposure levels. As reported by ECOwatch.com:

For example, radioactive iodine-131 has a current limit of 3 pico-curies per liter (pCi/L), in water but the new guidance would allow 10,350 (pCi/L), 3,450 times higher. For strontium-90, which causes leukemia, the current limit is 8 pCi/L; the new proposed value is 7,400 pCi/L, a 925-fold increase.

Even more astonishing — and surprising to those who think Obama is good but Bush was bad — is the fact that Obama’s new EPA levels are vastly higher than the limits established under President Bush. From ECOwatch.com:

The Bush Administration proposal for strontium 90 was 6,650 pCi/L; the new proposal is 7,400 pCi/L. For iodine-131, the Bush proposal was 8,490 pCi/L; the new proposal is 10,350 pCi/L. For cesium-137, the proposal was for 13,600 pCi/L; Obama “beats” Bush with a value of 16,570 pCi/L.

Under Obama’s new rules, the EPA can tell entire cities it’s “safe” to drink deadly radioactive water that’s almost certain to kill you

What’s the point of raising these allowable radioactivity levels to obscene new heights? It’s all about creating the “official science narrative” whereby incompetent, arrogant government officials can tell entire cities of nuclear terrorism victims, “Go on! Drink the water! The EPA says it’s safe!”

If you believe even one tiny scrap of “science” coming out of the EPA, you’re a fool. The EPA is a widely discredited anti-science propaganda ministry that eradicated nearly all legitimate scientists decades ago, back in the 1990’s. The only scientists that currently work for the EPA today are those who are willing to abandon real science and distort all their research and findings for political purposes. Privately, they will all tell you that no real science is tolerated at the EPA.

With this radiation decision, the EPA cements its position as the Environmental POLLUTION Agency which now systematically pollutes the air, water and soil, poisoning hundreds of millions of people and even labeling as “safe” toxic water that just might kill you.

It’s now so bad that even the pro Big Government environmentalists are freaking out and decrying the EPA’s sheer stupidity. When even the environmentalists are horrified by the EPA’s actions, you know the agency has really gone off the rails.

SOLUTIONS

So what are the solutions to all this? A high-end water filter, of course. As a real scientist running an internationally accredited laboratory (CWClabs.com), I’ve actually tested the ability of emergency water filters to remove elements with radioactive isotopes, such as cesium, strontium and uranium.

The #1 most effective filter I found for removing nearly 100% of all toxic elements is the Big Berkey water filter with the add-on arsenic and fluoride filter elements. They removed almost everything that was toxic!
