Scientists’ Group Calls On EU To Follow Brussels In Halting 5G Projects Due To Health Risk

from urdupoint.com

EU countries and cities should follow the example of Belgium and Brussels and halt projects related to 5G high-speed internet development because of potential health risks, Advisors to the International Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Scientist Appeal, an international advocacy group uniting specialists in the field, told Sputnik

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – 04th April, 2019) EU countries and cities should follow the example of Belgium and Brussels and halt projects related to 5G high-speed internet development because of potential health risks, Advisors to the International Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Scientist Appeal, an international advocacy group uniting specialists in the field, told Sputnik.

On Monday, The Brussels Times reported that plans for a pilot project to provide 5G wireless internet in the Belgian capital had been halted because of health risk concerns. Environment minister said that such technology could not be welcomed if it did not meet radiation standards, which are rather strict in Brussels region.

“The Advisors have stated that 5G technologies must be subjected to an independent health and safety assessment before they are launched. It is our hope that other cities and nations in the European Union and elsewhere in the world will follow the example set by BrusselsBelgium, and call a halt to the deployment of 5G due to concerns about the potential harm to human health and nature,” Elizabeth Kelley, director of EMF Scientist, said, noting that she replied on behalf of the Advisors to the International EMF Scientist Appeal.

The group is calling upon the United Nations and other bodies such as the World Health Organization and the UN Environment Programme to introduce greater health protection standards on EMF exposure.

It has already made several appeals to the UN Secretary-General.

“The Advisors to the Appeal believe that, while the science on the biological and health effects related to 5G is limited, there is sufficient scientific evidence to cause concern among independent scientists, that this new infrastructure, on top of existing electrical and wireless infrastructures, will cause more harm to mankind and nature. People who suffer from electrical sensitivity are facing the reality that they may have no place to go that is free from EMF hazards,” Kelley added.

Meanwhile, South Korea on Wednesday became the first country in the world to launch a 5Gnetwork. Several hours later, Verizon began selling 5G-compatibe smartphones and services.

In Europe, plans for a 5G network have been marred by the doubts about Huawei, the Chineseequipment maker, which the United States suspects of potentially being able to spy for Beijing. Unlike the United States, which barred Huawei from government agencies, the European Commission did not go so far as to ban the company. However, it asked member states to submit nation-wide risk assessments. Huawei is now suing the US government over the restrictions.

Inquiring about risks vs benefits of vaccines in NZ now makes you a “flat earther” or worse a “murderer” – the all out censorship by mainstream media of the vaccine dialogue

Last week amidst a measles outbreak in Christchurch, social media has been in full on discussion about vaccines with an article by TV1 news featuring Nigel Latta, another prominent person weighing in on a borderline push insisting that parents vaccinate their children. To see what is behind this new enlistment of support to bully you into vaccinating, see the video titled Free Speech and Shutting Down the Vaccine Debate by Truthstream Media. Google, Amazon & Facebook are all involved in this.  And meanwhile, Duncan Garner has labeled anybody who refuses to vaccinate a ‘murderer’. Note, nary a mention of all the babies who have died following vaccination.

Let me say at the outset, vaccination in NZ is not compulsory. See the official email from the NZ Health Dept website below.

These prominent persons who are waving their self assumed ‘authority’ over you & your families under your noses, should in my opinion concentrate more on urging parents to obtain all the scientific literature from both sides of the vaccination issue before proceeding with their own informed & well researched decision that will benefit their children. Same as we should on any proposed medical procedure. Instead, Latta has likened such thinking folk to flat earthers.

Recently we posted a video featuring talk back radio where a young mother who is also a psychology graduate & whose six week old baby was vaccine injured, made a plea for full disclosure by the health professionals of the possible risks vs the possible benefits of a vaccine. One hour after vaccination, this young mother says her baby woke up screaming & over two days turned into a floppy rag doll with a high pitched shrill moan … his brain was swelling. Listen to her speak in the following short clip.

So according to Latta’s thinking, anybody who questions this medical procedure (what are the contents of the vaccine? Are there any side effects to consider? and so on) are actually  “as legitimate as those at the Flat Earth Society”. Surely this young woman’s desire to be informed of the said risks vs benefits should not qualify her to be considered by health professionals as a conspiracy theorist?

I’m very disappointed as I really admired Latta’s  work with the Shadowlands series.  Yet on this issue he clearly is not for our parental right of choice. There are now enough testimonies from parents of deceased babies & disabled children who wish they had been informed of the risks and who cannot now turn back the clock. If you doubt that please visit the Vaxxed Youtube channel & hear all the heartbroken parents speaking out. View the before & after videos of their precious little ones, changed forever. Any parent’s worst nightmare. The disturbing thing about that is their numbers are increasing. To not weigh up the risks of injury versus the benefits, in light of the current available information, would in my opinion be very irresponsible.

This is not however how the medical establishment sees this. They want you to get the vaccine, no questions asked. Hitler would be proud.

With respect to the parental right to decline a vaccine, folk have been sharing their experiences recently following the post of an article about children of non consenting parents being pressured by nurses at their schools to be vaccinated regardless of their parents’ wishes. A blatant violation of human rights. Details are in this article:

CHILDREN OF NZ PARENTS WHO HAD DECLINED THE HPV VAX WERE TAKEN ASIDE AT SCHOOL, TOLD THEIR PARENTS DIDN’T LOVE THEM AND COERCED FOR THEIR CONSENT

Parents having read this article made the following comments in social media:

My daughters were approached by nurses at school “gently” encouraging them to persuade me, they also rang me to question my judgment….I’M THE PARENT not them how dare they question my decisions for my daughters.

I’ve had lengthy conversations with my 11 and a half year old about this..today he said his teacher was telling them all they have to get vaccinated to keep them safe and asking them questions like “you do want to be safe and live don’t you?” , the teacher proceeded to tell the kids they needed to go home this evening and tell their parents that they need to make an appointment with the doctor asap…they have a vaccination program for the year 8s at his school and I told him he has my full permission to refuse and if they pressure him to demand to be able to call me or run away from the area that they are vaccinating.

I received HPV vaccination over 12 years ago now, when my mum sent in a form that said she didn’t consent to me receiving it. I gave it to the nurse who tossed it in the bin, then gave it to me anyways.. when I got home I told my mum & the next day she called a meeting with the school principal, vice principal and all my teachers and went offfff. After that day they didn’t even bother giving me any forms for vaccinations because they didn’t want my mum to come down to the school again.

When my boy was attending Intermediate school they were being targeted for diptheria, tetanus pertussis (triple vaccine) and as a parent I rang to ask where was the info for the parents. Answer was “oh we don’t do this anymore and hardly anyone turns up” So I was invited along to an assembly where they addressed all the kids. My boy had been sent on an errand unbeknown to me and when the session was finished he turned up almost in tears as he had “missed out”. Now the session included a video of propaganda showing an old school photo of a class with circles around a few pupils (can’t remember which way around it was to use as an example who was spreading disease). The Deputy Principal allowed for questions of the 2 DHB nurses present. One South African boy asked what bad reactions could happen and the nurse had to acknowledge “anaphylactic shock”. I raised my hand to ask a question and the DP gave me the most evil look then promptly closed the whole session down and sent everyone back to class. What hope is there if the teachers are propagandised leaves me worried and wondering …..

Parents now also need to be aware that some children are being prescribed anti-depressants without parental consent.

Clearly some medical staff are taking it upon themselves to apply pressure to children which is not acceptable. As to prescribing anti depressants without parental consent, that is definitely crossing the line. Watch your children parents. Listen to them. And be involved & know what is happening at their schools. Make it clear to those concerned what your expectations are regarding any health procedure.

Note also the right of choice has also been removed from the staff of a Christchurch school regarding their own choice to vaccinate. Unvaccinated teachers face a fine of $2,000:

To conclude here is a reply from the NZ government’s health website to the question:

Please advise if immunisation in New Zealand is compulsory or that it is up to the person and/or parents to make that decision. Your website is not very clear on all of this.

Subject: Re: Immunisation

Good morning,

Thank you for your email.  Getting immunised is voluntary in New Zealand, and it is an individual’s (or parent’s/guardian’s) choice whether or not they or their child agree to being immunised.  

Note under the Health (Immunisation) Regulations 1995 all early childhood education centres and primary schools must maintain an immunisation register, and may request that the caregiver provides their child’s immunisation certificate or record that the child is not immunised.

Your health practitioner will be able to provide you with information that will allow you to make an informed choice.  Health professionals have a duty to give honest and open information about any medical treatment, which includes immunisations.  This ensures that the individual or parent/guardian is able to give their full consent to the immunisation.  The individual or parent/guardian needs to understand the benefits and risks of immunisation, including those to the child and their community, in order to make an informed choice and give informed consent.

The information about immunisation on our website is based on the overwhelming body of scientific evidence that shows the benefits of immunisation far outweigh its risks. This position underpins the health systems of every country in the world.  Another website you may find useful is that of the Immunisation Advisory Centre (IMAC), which provides independent information about vaccine-preventable diseases and the benefits and risks of immunisation (http://www.immune.org.nz).

Kind regards,

Deborah

Scientists Test Three Solutions for Cleaning Pesticides Off Produce: The Winner is Clear, Chemical-Free and Surprisingly Cheap

Each year, the release of the Environmental Working Group’s ‘Clean Fifteen’ and ‘Dirty Dozen’ lists inspire countless health conscious shoppers looking for the best deals on produce as free from toxic pesticides as possible.

This year’s list followed a similar pattern, with the exception of two well known crops that contain “less than one percent detectable pesticides,” even in their non-organic iteraitons.

Despite the good news, there’s still a pesticide-related problem that shows few signs of slowing in the United States, especially with Bayer set to take over Monsanto in the coming weeks.

The bad news is that glyphosate and other chemicals are more abundant in our environment than ever before. But the good news is that organic food is making a comeback, and there are plenty of ways to mitigate your exposure to harmful pesticides.

One of them is by using the best quality homemade produce wash for your fruits and vegetables, and according to a study from the University of Massachusetts, there is one clear winner that happens to be cheap, simple and effective.

University Study Reveals: Baking Soda Better Than Chlorine for Washing Vegetables

The study, published in October 2017 in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry by a team of six researchers, looked at three main possible solutions for cleaning produce: pure water, a solution of bleach containing chlorine, and a solution made of water and baking soda.

Organic Gala apples that were coated with the fungicide thiabendazole, or phosmet, a pesticide, by the scientists for research purposes, were used for the study. They were then washed with one of the three solutions.

“We want(ed) to see whether or not the factory level (of washing) is already effective” for removing the chemicals, lead researcher Dr. Lili He said.

In the end, the winner was clear: baking soda took home the number one spot, because of its ability to make the pesticides degrade faster than the other two solutions.

In 2016 a former DOC ranger expressed concerned with 1080 getting into Taranaki’s waterways

Note: Taranaki is soon to be re 1080’d (2019). See details below the Stuff article on that.
I am noticing in discussions around aerial 1080 drops, folk are saying they’ve not heard of any health effects happening. What you need to know however, is when it comes to testing for 1080 there are parameters around time frames for that (as you will see in the Putaruru family’s ordeal in the links below). A retired NZ Medical Doctor has been concerned enough to inform the public that Doctors are bullied into NOT testing for 1080 poisoning. So in his words last September  2018 “if you die from 1080 poisoning, nobody will know [that it was 1080] …”. You should also read our page on suspected 1080 poisonings to see the foot dragging & cover up that is exhibited by our esteemed authorities.

From stuff.co.nz

A former DOC ranger says he’s concerned about 1080 reaching Taranaki’s water supply following aerial drops of the toxin in Egmont National Park.

Barry Ovenden, who has helped conduct 1080 operations in the park in 2002 and 2010, said there had been a lack of public consultation about the poison reaching rivers which run off the mountain and supply the region with fresh water.

“If the drop goes perfectly then there shouldn’t be any problem, the risk is if someone say drops a bucket of it into a stream,” he said.

“By the time DOC have tested that water 24 hours later, the water is already on the way to the tap.”

Ovenden said there hasn’t been a history of negative effects – like sickness – from people drinking 1080 contaminated water in Taranaki, but cautioned the effects were still relatively unknown.

 “DOC test the water supply after the first significant rainfall after the drops, but there’s no long term testing,” he said.

Unlike many stalwart anti-1080 campaigners Ovenden said 1080 was still very effective, but there were other means of controlling pests in the park.

“DOC could conduct that aerial operation on the ground,” he said.

“Sure it would be more expensive, but it wouldn’t be dangerous.

“They (DOC) are dictating to the public of Taranaki that this is the only way.”

However, DOC refutes any claims 1080 poses a danger to our water supply and the government’s environmental watchdog Landcare Research backs up the department’s claims.

According to Landcare’s protocol for sampling and testing water for 1080 there is no evidence water had been contaminated in a study of 76 samples done in 2007.

The report also states that contamination in waterways from 1080 is “highly improbable if current safety procedures are followed”.

The Ministry of Health recommends that water should not be used for drinking if 1080 is found to be above two parts per billion, whereas 70 of the 76 samples done by Landcare were below one part per billion.

DOC spokesperson Herb Christophers said the department simply wouldn’t use 1080 if it was contaminating people’s waterways.

“We base everything we do on the science that supports 1080’s use,” he said.

“There is just no evidence to say it poisons our waterways.”

As for conducting the 1080 operation on the ground, in a more targeted approach to pest control, DOC’s bio-diversity planner Bill Fleury has previously said it would cost 25 times the cost of using 1080 to control pests manually in the park.

Fleury said possums had a small territory and trappers would have to physically trap every hectare in the park to have the same effect as dropping 1080.

“The problem with doing that from the ground is that pests can move back into an area you’ve just baited and nullify any progress you’ve just made,” he said.

1080 is dropped in the the park every six years and this year’s drop is yet to commence as DOC need several fine weather days.

Following this year’s drop DOC will drop 1080 every three years, but at half the dosage.

DETAILS ON THE TARANAKI 1080 AERIAL DROP

EMAIL supplied, dated 18 Feb 2019 from New Plymouth DoC

Hi xxxx

Thank you for your email below. Information regarding Mt Taranaki can be found here – http://taranakimounga.nz/restoration/our-predators/2019-predator-control-operation/.

You’ll note in here that a time period of March-August 2019 is identified. The job is different to 2016, with Kaitake being separate as contributing to a joint project with TRC – Towards a Predator Free Taranaki project. This Kaitake project is intended to start earlier in March (hence the reference to that in the link), with the main cone being later in 2019. This Kaitake timeframe may be what you are hearing, or timings may have changed since the last communication with your friends in November 2018.

Letters are to be sent shortly to more of the community which will include more detail around each part of the job.

Thanks

Sean

WHY ARE PEOPLE SO CONCERNED ABOUT 1080?

A must watch also is Poisoning Paradise, the doco made by the GrafBoys (banned from screening on NZ TV, yet a 4x international award winner). Their website is tv-wild.com. Their doco is a very comprehensive overview with the independent science to illustrate the question marks that remain over the use of this poison. There are links also on our 1080 resources page to most of the groups, pages, sites etc that will provide you with further information to make your own informed decision on this matter.

If you are pro poisoning of the environment, EnvirowatchRangitikei is not the place to espouse your opinions. Mainstream would be the place to air those. This is a venue for sharing the independent science you won’t of course find there.

 

DOCTORS ARE CONCERNED ABOUT 1080 POISON BEING DEPOSITED IN DRINKING WATER

By J. James
infonews.co.nz

IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE*

THE INCREDIBLE LETTER BELOW HAS BEEN PREPARED BY DOCTORS WHO ARE CONCERNED ABOUT 1080 POISON BEING DEPOSITED IN DRINKING WATER

Open letter to the Government, Friday, 21st September 2018.

As doctors, we are extremely concerned about the health risk of depositing poisoned bait over 22,500 hectares of the Hunua water catchment area. Specifically, we are concerned about Sodium Fluoroacetate (SMFA / 1080), a known deadly poison which is known to cause sub-lethal effects on reproduction and is classified as a teratogen, having potential to contaminate the Auckland water supply.

There is no effective antidote for 1080 poisoning in humans.

We are extremely concerned that public officials are not adopting a far more precautionary approach to the safety of the Auckland water catchment, especially when the effects of 1080, a highly soluble poison, is not quantifiably able to be tested on how it affects the health of humans.

Studies show that 1080 affects the reproductive organs, the cardiac system, and respiratory system in mammals. There is no safe minimal level known and water testing and sampling after aerial 1080 application cannot prudently protect the public from risk of exposure from this poison.

As doctors, we are responsible for the health of individuals and communities. Therefore, we ask the government to immediately stop the usage of sodium fluoroacetate which has potential to contaminate the New Zealand water supply.

Signed,

Dr Ulrich Doering MBChB, Dipl O+G, FRNZCGP

Dr Roger Leitch MBChB, FRNZCGP

About 328,000 patients in the U.S. and Europe die from prescription drugs each year

And why would this be any different in NZ Kiwis? Same drug companies. Same medical model. Same addressing of symptoms not root causes as is generally the case.

From herbs-info.com

A damning Harvard University report has advised that according to the European Commission, about 328,000 patients in the U.S. and Europe die from prescription drugs each year – making prescription drugs the 4th highest cause of death, on a par with stroke.

We could get into legal trouble if we advised you to go against the recommendations of your doctor; however we can advise you to be as informed as possible about the risks involved in taking prescription meds.

According to the World Health Organization, the pharmaceutical industry is worth 300 billion dollars annually – with an additional hundred million expected to add to the value in the next three years. A third of this entire multi-billion-dollar market is controlled by ten of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. According to CMR International, a partner of Thomas Reuters, global pharmaceutical sales reached one trillion dollars in 2014 and will be booming to 1.3 trillion by 2018.

It goes without saying that this is big business – but like every big business, there is a dark side as well. Can we really trust the research – seeing as the same companies selling the pills are funding many of the medical journals? And then we have the issue of doctors receiving kickbacks for prescribing certain drugs, after being “educated” on the benefits of the drugs by pharma salesmen.

Take a look at this list of seven of the most dangerous prescription drug typesand see how they can hurt you. [1][2]

#1: Sleeping Pills (OTC and prescribed)

The use of sleeping pills has been associated with an increased risk factor for stroke. A study published by Petrov, et. al. in 2014 revealed that over-the-counter and prescription sleeping pills increased a person’s risk for stroke, independently and beyond any of the other known risk factors like blood pressure, personal history of heart disease, and vices like smoking and drinking alcohol. Isn’t it worrying that compared to all other factors that place a person at risk for stroke, sleeping pills top that list? [3]

The Dangers of 5G to Children’s Health

[SkyVision Solutions Editor’s Note:  Smart Grid Awareness primarily discusses health and security risks related to implementation of costly electric grid modernization efforts.  Even more risky will be implementation of so-called 5G technology, which in theory would eventually include utility smart meters and every Internet-enabled device on the planet.]

By the Children’s Health Defense Team

Mobile and wireless technologies are a ubiquitous feature of modern life.  Most U.S. adults own smartphones, a growing proportion are “smartphone-only” Internet users and over a fourth report being online “almost constantly.”  As for children, a 2014 survey of high-income nations reported that almost seven in ten children used a mobile phone, and two-thirds of those had a smartphone, usually by age 10.  As described by Nielsen, it is now as common to see “a kid with a smartphone in their hand” as it was to see “a kid playing with a yo-yo in the years before the digital age.”

The enthusiasm with which the public has embraced each new mobile and wireless technology—most of which have never undergone any appropriate safety testing or standards development—suggests that consumers rarely stop to consider the health implications of the infrastructure shoring up their ability to browse, stream and download anytime and “on the go.”  Consumers are not entirely to blame for their lack of awareness—it is not easy to disentangle the technologies’ health risks in the face of the telecommunications industry’s steady and calculated disinformation efforts and a captured Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that “follows the script of fabulously wealthy, bullying, billion-dollar beneficiaries of wireless.”

“… powerful 5G (fifth-generation) networks and technology are about to subject everyone, on a continuous basis, to unprecedented forms and amounts of mandatory irradiation—without prior study of the potential health impact or any assurance of safety.

Now, however, a global 5G “frenzy” is upon us and is coming into full force.  The rollout of “blazing fast” 5G technology will “dramatically increase the number of transmitters sending signals to cellphones and a host of new Internet-enabled devices.”  The time is ripe for greater grassroots awareness of the undisclosed tradeoffs between convenience and 5G’s potentially catastrophic health effects.  Far from a simple “next-gen” upgrade, powerful 5G (fifth-generation) networks and technology are about to subject everyone, on a continuous basis, to unprecedented forms and amounts of what retired U.S. government physicist Dr. Ronald Powell calls “mandatory irradiation”—without “prior study of the potential health impact” or any assurance of safety.  Considering that young people (with their smaller body mass and developing brains) are particularly vulnerable to radiation, the Environmental Health Trust has termed 5G “the next great unknown experiment on our children”—and the entire human population.

6 Natural Ibuprofen Alternatives Backed by Clinical Research

Posted on:

Written By:

Sayer Ji, Founder

With the public’s growing awareness of the deadly side effects associated with the regular use of synthetic painkillers like ibuprofen, the need for natural, evidence-based alternatives has never been greater.

People generally think that over-the-counter drugs are safer than physician-prescribed ones. Unfortunately that does not hold true for drugs like ibuprofen, consumed at a rate of billions of doses, annually, and responsible for thousands of cardiovascular disease-related deaths each year.

Did you know that Merck’s blockbuster drug Vioxx caused more than 27,000 deaths and heart attacks between 1999 and 2003? In fact, it was the FDA’s own drug safety researcher, David Graham, who blew the whistle on the agency in 2004 at a Congressional hearing, estimating that over 60,000 Americans died as a result of its use, and the FDA’s inaction around their well-known side effects.

What does this have to do with ibuprofen? Researchers have known that ibuprofen is at least as dangerous as Vioxx for at least six years. But millions continue to take this drug, daily, without receiving adequate warning, while heart disease and cardiac mortality statistics continue to expand unabated.

For further background on the severe and still underreported dangers of ibuprofen, consult the following articles:

You can also view our ibuprofen database which presently collates the peer-reviewed research on the link between ibuprofen use and over 30 different diseases.

Considering the veritable nightmare of adverse effects associated with ibuprofen use — the “pain killer” that that is ‘so effective’ it permanently cures pain by killing the patient — it behooves both the medical profession and the health consumer to find safer alternatives, even if that means going back to the time-tested, multi-culturally validated tradition of herbal medicine.

Here are a 5 clinically validated, natural alternatives worth considering:

  1. Arnica: a 2007 study found that arnica, applied topically, was as effective as ibuprofen for relieving symptoms associated with osteoarthritis of the wrist, and with less side effects.

  2. Ginger: a 2009 study found that ginger was effective as ibuprofen for pain symptoms associated with difficult menstrual cycles (dysmenorrhea).

  3. Turmeric: a 2014 study found that turmeric extracts were as effective as ibuprofen for relieving symptoms of knee osteoarthritis.

  4. Thyme2004 study found that an extract of thyme was as effective as ibuprofen in reducing pain and spasm symptoms associated with difficult menstrual cycles (dysmenorrhea).

  5. Omega-3 fatty acids: a 2006 study found that omega-3 fatty acid supplementation with fish oil helped neurosurgery patients reduce their need for medications, and experienced results consistent with previous research indicating palliative effects at least as effective as ibuprofen.

  6. Cinnamon: a 2015 study found that cinnamon was as effective as ibuprofen for pain associated with difficult menstrual cycles (dysmenorrhea).

For related research, use the GreenMedInfo databases on natural anti-inflammatories and analgesicsConsider also that ibuprofen is not the only NSAID with debilitating and even lethal side effects. Learn more about the dangers of this chemical class, including aspirin, on our NSAID database.
