(NaturalHealth365) Across the country, we are beginning to see the rise of so-called “Smart Cities.” The city of the future may include 5G wireless antennas on most utility poles, self-driving vehicles whisking us from place to place, and “Internet of Things” sensors everywhere. But, most people remain uninformed about the dangers of this new technology and the increase in EMF pollution.

We are told that the wireless smart city will bring us into a sustainable future of convenience and ease. However, cracks are appearing in this dystopian vision. At the very time that the smart city is being pushed upon us, our best science now shows how detrimental wireless technology is to our health.

EMF warning: Should we move forward with smart cities if they are ultimately harmful to our health?

In this article, you will learn about the key elements of the smart city and understand the steps to protect your family and community from the health risks of these developing technologies.

What Is 5G?

5G stands for “5th generation” wireless technology. Our devices currently run on 3G and 4G technology, which utilize a limited range of the microwave spectrum. 5G will greatly expand the amount of spectrum used and include high gigahertz range frequencies that have never been used before in consumer devices.

These high frequencies, between 14 GHz and 73 GHz, do not travel as far or penetrate building as easily. However, they will allow for incredibly fast download speeds. This will enable 5G devices to download a movie in a few seconds and will allow companies like AT&T to deliver HBO programs wirelessly, rather than via a cable.

The biggest issue with 5G is that wireless antennas will be placed on most light and utility poles within our neighborhoods. It is estimated that the 5G network will require each of the four major wireless carriers to install one million new base stations. To show you the scale of this expansion, AT&T currently has approximately 70,000 cell sites. This will exponentially increase the amount of microwave radiation in our communities, creating an electromagnetic environment unlike anything humans have ever experienced.

The wireless industry is planning YOUR future in a ‘secret’ way

Our current laws actually make the rollout of the 5G network difficult for the wireless companies. This is why the industry is now pressing for weaker regulations. Senator John Thune has recently introduced SB 19, which is called the Mobil Now Act.

SB 19 would take away any remaining ability that communities have to regulate the placement of cellular antennas. It would allow a wireless company to put a 5G antenna right outside your bedroom window. Call your Senator today and ask them to put a hold on this bill so that you have more say in your health going forward.

It’s official: Vitamin C interferes with cancer stem cell metabolism

(NaturalHealth365) Increasingly, researchers are discovering the role played by cancer stem cells in the growth and spread of the disease. In groundbreaking new research, vitamin C showed its ability to target cancer stem cells and stop their growth – preventing the recurrence of tumors.

Although mainstream medicine has been slow to accept the cancer-fighting properties of vitamin C, the exciting results of this study could help to change that.

It’s official: Vitamin C interferes with cancer stem cell metabolism

In a newly-published study conducted at the University of Salford in Manchester, vitamin C demonstrated its power to stop tumors in their tracks by interfering with cancer stem cell metabolism – suppressing their ability to process energy for survival and growth.

Cancer stem cells are responsible for triggering tumor recurrence, and promoting their growth and metastasis. Researchers believe that cancer stem cells give cancer its ability to resist chemotherapy and radiation – the reason for treatment failure in advanced cancer patients.

The study, helmed by researchers Michael P. Lisanti and Gloria Bonucelli, was published last month in Oncotarget, a peer-reviewed journal. Peer-reviewed studies are considered the gold standard of scientific research.

The study was the first to explore the effects of vitamin C on cancer stem cells – and provided the first evidence that vitamin C, in the form of ascorbic acid, can target and kill them.

In a side-by-side comparison of seven different substances, vitamin C even outperformed an experimental cancer drug.

Medical bombshell: Chemotherapy found to spread cancer (from Albert Einstein Coll of Med)

(Natural News) New research conducted at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University has found that chemotherapy spreads cancer throughout the body, causing a sharp increase in cancer cells circulating throughout the body (including the lungs).

A summary of the study reports that “the authors discovered that several types of chemotherapy can increase the amounts of TMEM complexes and circulating tumor cells in the bloodstream.” It concludes that “chemotherapy, despite decreasing tumor size, increases the risk of metastatic dissemination.”

Chemotherapy spreads cancer, generating repeat business for the for-profit cancer industry

In other words, even though chemotherapy “shrinks tumors,” it’s also spreading

Led by Dr. George Karagiannis, the research focused on chemotherapy treatment of breast cancer, but further studies plan to see how chemotherapy might also spread cancers of other tissues, too. The research was published in Science Translational Medicine and is entitled Neoadjuvant chemotherapy induces breast cancer metastasis through a TMEM-mediated mechanism

cancer throughout the body, functioning as a kind of activation for future cancer (that just so happens to generate repeat business for the cancer industry, of course).

California declares glyphosate a toxic cancer-causing chemical, effective July 7, 2017

This is very good news. Remember too if you are aware of the glyphosate in Roundup, that it’s in many other herbicides as well so check your labels. See our Glyphosate pages for more information and our presentation of the evidence against glyphosate to the Rangitikei District Council (all dismissed as mere extrapolation). Nevertheless the one thing you can do as regards council slathering it everywhere is go on the no spray register to prevent them spraying it on your property frontage. Do this at your council office. You can also enlighten folk as to its toxicity as most (like I once did) believe what the label says. Gone are the days friends. This product caused huge tumours in lab rats. Read the evidence for yourself. All on our pages.
EnvirowatchRangitikei

This is from NaturalHealth365

(NatualHealth365) In a win for consumer rights and safety, the OEHHA (California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment) has declared that glyphosate weed killer is a known, cancer-causing carcinogen. It will be added to the state’s Proposition 65 warning list.

Proposition 65, also known as “The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986,” was passed in order to protect California drinking water from toxic, cancer-causing substances and those known to cause birth defects.

Glyphosate designated “probably carcinogenic” by WHO in 2015

Glyphosate weed killer is sold under numerous brand names, but the most widely used is Roundup, manufactured by the Monsanto company. The state of California is using statute CAS #107-83-6 to change the designation of the weed killer, which they say has cancer as a known endpoint for some people who are exposed to it.

This designation is a blow to companies that use glyphosate in their products. Efforts to ban the substance have ramped up ever since the WHO (World Health Organization) designated it as “probably carcinogenic” in 2015.

As of July 7, California retailers must add cancer warning labels to all products containing glyphosate. However, cancer warnings will as yet not be required on foods and grocery items that have been sprayed with the cancer-causing herbicide.

Magnesium deficiency linked to increased risk of pancreatic cancer

(NaturalHealth365) Every day, 145 Americans receive the devastating news that they have pancreatic cancer. Aggressive and fast-growing, pancreatic cancer may avoid detection until it is advanced – and it carries a notoriously poor prognosis for survival.

Current research is focused around finding an effective method of prevention – and it turns out that a common, non-toxic and inexpensive mineral may be the key.

WARNING: Magnesium deficiency is widespread

Magnesium is a naturally-occurring mineral and electrolyte that is essential for over 300 different  cellular reactions and metabolic processes. It also works in concert with calcium to build bones, and helps to detoxify heavy metals in the body. Although it is not classified as an antioxidant, magnesium has potent antioxidant effects, including the ability to reduce disease-causing oxidative stress and inflammation.

Unsurprisingly, low levels of this indispensable mineral can leave you susceptible to serious illnesses. Magnesium deficiency is widespread, with some natural health experts estimating that it exists in up to 80 percent of the U.S. population.

In a review by the International Society for the Development of Research on Magnesium, researchers found that magnesium deficiency can lead to the initiation, growth and spread of cancer – and also interfere with cancer treatment.  Some research suggests that low magnesium causes an undesirable increase in the permeability of cells – which makes it easier for cancer to invade.

The good news: maintaining optimal levels of magnesium provides an impressive amount of protection against life-threatening diseases, including pancreatic cancer.

CDC Admits 98 Million Americans Were Given an Hereditary Cancer Virus Via The Polio Shot During 1955–1963

This highly enlightening article is from marygreeley.com  It will shock you. And thanks to thecontrail.com, I’ve added further links to information pertaining to NZ and this issue.
EnvirowatchRangitikei

“The CDC has admitted that between 1955–1963 over 98 million Americans received one or more doses of a polio shot which was contaminated with a cancer-causing virus called Simian vacuolating virus 40 (SV40).”  Although quickly removed from their website, it has been cached and reproduced in the article.

Think on this. Over 98 million people received a cancer-causing virus via a vaccine. Joining dots anybody? Our cancer rate is currently 1 in 3. This is part of the reason why in your circle of friends and relations there are several stories of cancer cases and even deaths. I can think of four people in my extended family, plus two friends who’ve died from it. And several treated for it. There are many and varied sources whereby we are exposed to the elevated environmental risk of contracting cancer, and this is just one of them. Dr Samuel Epstein was writing about environmental risks back in the ’70s (see his book The Politics of Cancer). Instead we are lead to believe, or would get the impression going by the establishment, that it’s very mysterious and often just plain bad luck we’re cursed with the big C. Truth is, your finding out just makes a dent in corporate profits. Why else is there a war against organic food, stopping the use of chemical pesticides, natural medicine and anything else that’s healthy pretty much? So here we have cancer added to vaccines. You should be shocked and if you haven’t already you need to examine thoroughly the independent research on vaccines.  See our site for links. EnvirowatchRangitikei

Another important consideration conveniently omitted on the CDC fact sheet about SV40 is that the virus is somehow being passed down from generation to generation.

The article:

“To further confirm this unbelievable admission, Assistant Professor of Pathology at Loyola University in Chicago Dr. Michele Carbone has been able to independently verify the presence of the SV40 virus in tissue and bone samples from patients who died during that era.

He found that 33% of the samples with osteosarcoma bone cancers, 40% of other bone cancers, and 60% of the mesothelioma’s lung cancers all contained this obscure virus. This leaves the postulation that upwards of 10–30 million actually contracted and were adversely affected by this virus, to be deadly accurate.

CHAPTER 8: ‘Crises of Confidence?’ Vaccine controversies and medical and public responses 1973-1990 . GO TO PAGE 234 .

A SMALL EXCERPT FROM THERE.

“The Health Department had had several months’ warning of the Baguley and Glasgow research when it provided details of the polio vaccine campaigns to the two doctors. Consequently the Department conducted its own inquiry ‘behind closed doors’ regarding the effects of SV40 which led it to conclude the vaccine was ‘safe’.10 Although press statements had been prepared in advance, the Department was taken aback by the intensity with which Truth attacked its subject over 22 weeks from December 1973 to July 1974. Headlines such as ‘2 million candidates for cancer?’11 and ‘Killer Slip? Health men & a dirty vaccine…’12 abounded for weeks with accusations by Truth that the Department was trying to cover up or give different versions of what happened.13

4 D. M. Baguley, G. L. Glasgow, ‘Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis and the Salk Vaccine’, The Lancet, 6 October 1973, pp.763-65. They also thought there might be a link to killed measles vaccine. 5 Editorial, The Lancet, 6 October 1973, p.772 and also N. McD. Davidson, ‘S.S.P.E. in New Zealand’, The Lancet, 8 December 1973, pp.1332-33. Usually SSPE takes about five to seven years to develop and hence it was argued that a measles epidemic in 1952-53 was more likely to be responsible for cases of SSPE than the SV40 in the Salk vaccine three to four years later. 6 D.

Cancer risk associated with simian virus 40 contaminated polio vaccine.

Abstract

BACKGROUND:

The presence of SV40 in monkey cell cultures used in the preparation of the polio vaccine from 1955 through 1961 is well documented. Investigations have consistently demonstrated the oncogenic behavior of SV40 in animal models. Early epidemiologic studies were inadequate in demonstrating an increase in cancer incidence associated with contaminated vaccine. Recently, investigators have provided persuasive evidence that SV40 is present in human ependymomas, choroid plexus tumors, bone tumors, and mesotheliomas, however, the etiologic role of the virus in tumorigenesis has not been established.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

Using data from SEER, we analyzed the incidence of brain tumors, bone tumors, and mesotheliomas from 1973-1993 and the possible relationship of these tumors with the administration of the SV40 contaminated vaccine.

RESULTS:

Our analysis indicates increased rates of ependymomas (37%), osteogenic sarcomas (26%), other bone tumors (34%) and mesothelioma (90%) among those in the exposed as compared to the unexposed birth cohort.

CONCLUSIONS:

These data suggest that there may be an increased incidence of certain cancers among the 98 million persons exposed to contaminated polio vaccine in the U.S.; further investigations are clearly justified.

Proof that Smart Meters Affect the Human Heart (aka Advanced Meters in NZ)

This video concludes with an explanation from a MD … see in real time the effects from exposure to the frequencies emitted by a Smart Meter. Kiwis they are called here, Advanced Meters. Don’t be fooled by your Powerco’s call centre where you will be told they’re ‘no more dangerous than a mobile phone’ … if you are still in doubt the doco you must watch is ‘Take Back Your Power’ (viewable for pennies at the site of the same name). There you will see compelling evidence that will convince you to be rid of your Smart aka Advanced meter because it also exposes you to a raised cancer risk. Yet another area in which the general public have been lied to by industry. Then there’s the fire risk, and the escalated power bills. All denied of course however if you care to dig deeper you’ll find it’s all true. See our Smart Meter pages for further links, especially to our (NZ’s) own site (also available internationally just google your own country) called stopsmartmetersnz. You will learn there how to get rid of one, or how to avoid getting one. They are NOT compulsory although you will be bluffed into believing they are. Your house, your choice about exposure to dangerous frequencies.  EnvirowatchRangitikei

Everyone’s health is being affected by “smart” meters. The evidence in this video is a world first, and shifts the debate from whether anyone should have to pay a fee to refuse a “smart” meter to: When does the safety recall start? We now know that even if people are not showing outward symptoms, their bodies are being unnecessarily and involuntarily stressed by “smart” meters. There must be a complete safety recall of all “smart” meters at once.

Learn what the Aluminum in Vaccines is doing to your Brain & who conducted the safety studies

Impact of Vaccines: Aluminum, Autoimmunity, Autism & Alzheimer’s

By Dr. Gary G. Kohls

I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all times because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine…has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers. Dr. Bernard Dalbergue a former pharmaceutical industry physician with Gardasil manufacturer Merck, emphasis added.

“No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable…for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death.” – President Ronald Reagan, as he signed The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986,absolving drug companies from all medico-legal liability when vaccines kill or disable children

“The 271 vaccines in development span a wide array of diseases, and employ exciting new scientific strategies and technologies. These potential vaccines – all in human clinical trials or under review by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – include 137 for infectious diseases, 99 for cancer, 15 for allergies and 10 for neurological disorders.”  Statement from the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) – the pharmaceutical industry’s trade association and lobbying group. 

The #1 talking point of Big Pharma, Big Vaccine, the CDC, the AMA and the American Academy of Pediatrics when they try to justify the use of the neurotoxin aluminum (and mercury) in their vaccines is this one:

“humans shouldn’t be afraid of the small amount of either aluminum or mercury that is or has been in many human and animal vaccines.”

They say, truthfully, that aluminum is the third most common element in the earth’s crust, behind oxygen and silicone.  Oxygen makes up about 47% of the earth’s mass. Silicon is second at 28%, followed by aluminum at 8%. They also say that aluminum may be just as harmless as oxygen and silicone and that humans are also exposed to aluminum in oral antacids and underarm anti-perspirants and that those products haven’t yet been “conclusively” proven to have caused “statistically-significant” health problems. They fail, of course, to mention that the “studies” that prove aluminum’s safety (and efficacy) were designed, performed and paid-for by the very industries that benefit from the unregulated, unexamined and widespread use of injectable aluminum in America’s over-vaccination schedules. It is important to note that the reason that aluminum has been used in vaccines for the last 80+ years is because it has been found to be an “adjuvant” (defined as “a substance that enhances the body’s immune response to an antigen.” An “antigen” is “a toxin or other foreign substance that induces an immune response in the body”. Interestingly, nobody really understands exactly how aluminum performs as an adjuvant, and there is a desperate search for other adjuvants because the vaccine industry understands just how toxic it is.

Some shocking revelations in this excellent & informative article. And no the safety studies were not independent from the manufacturing industries (aka Big Pharma). When you present for a vaccine if you’re still that way inclined, ask them to show you the safety studies. You’ll be surprized. Folks I know of who have asked, discovered the nurses attending were actually ignorant of those studies. They of course haven’t questioned their esteemed employers and just assumed they were all good. This is one issue you need to research thoroughly, particularly the vaccine-Autism link and the HPV vaccine. Check out our vaccine pages. Read the statements of the ex-industry whistle blowers, the MDs … there are many.

Malignant brain tumors most common cause of cancer deaths in adolescents and young adults

This article is just giving us statistics regarding brain tumors. However those of you who have read the research widely will know that any link to emf exposure from mobile phones is a controversial issue that is pretty much played down by the industries. It might make a dent in profits. Apple does tell us in their (very) fine print to hold our phones 5/8 inch from our bodies. Dr Mercola also writes of heavy mobile phone use quadrupling our risk of brain cancer. Watch the following 2 minute clip on topic by a medical doctor. Isn’t it worth researching? There’s enough evidence of risk to do so. And there are ways to protect yourself without throwing away your phone. I first pricked my ears up at this topic when I read a conversation saying brain surgeons could tell what side of your head you held your phone. Check out our EMF pages and particularly the wi-cancer website, an excellent resource.

Malignant brain tumors most common cause of cancer deaths in adolescents and young adults

American Brain Tumor Association funds first comprehensive study of 15-39 year-old population

AMERICAN BRAIN TUMOR ASSOCIATION

Chicago, Ill., Feb. 24, 2016 – A new report published in the journal Neuro-Oncology and funded by the American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) finds that malignant brain tumors are the most common cause of cancer-related deaths in adolescents and young adults aged 15-39 and the most common cancer occurring among 15-19 year olds.

The 50-page report, which utilized data from the Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States (CBTRUS) from 2008-2012, is the first in-depth statistical analysis of brain and central nervous system (CNS) tumors in adolescents and young adults (AYA). Statistics are provided on tumor type, tumor location and age group (15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34 and 35-39) for both malignant and non-malignant brain and CNS tumors.

“When analyzing data in 5-year age increments, researchers discovered that the adolescent and young adult population is not one group but rather several distinct groups that are impacted by very different tumor types as they move into adulthood,” said Elizabeth Wilson, president and CEO of the American Brain Tumor Association.

“For these individuals — who are finishing school, pursuing their careers and starting and raising young families — a brain tumor diagnosis is especially cruel and disruptive,” added Wilson. “This report enables us for the first time to zero-in on the types of tumors occurring at key intervals over a 25-year time span to help guide critical research investments and strategies for living with a brain tumor that reflect the patient’s unique needs.”
