Transgenic Wars — How GMOs Impact Livestock and Human Health Around the Globe
by Dr. Mercola, 24 September 2016

Story at-a-glance

  • “Transgenic Wars” journeys through Europe and Latin America, looking at the effects of genetically engineered (GE) crops on livestock and human health
  • A Danish pig farmer traced a mystery swine illness to herbicide-laced GE soy from Argentina. In Argentina, a GE farmer admits he will not feed the GE soy to his animals, as chickens fed GE soy produce inedible eggs
  • People living near GE fields in Argentina have 350 percent higher rates of birth defects than the national average; cancer rates have also risen by as much as 250 percent in just one year in some areas

How the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Manipulates the Media

How the FDA Manipulates the Media
by Charles Seife | Scientific American October 2016 Issue

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has been arm-twisting journalists into relinquishing their reportorial independence, our investigation reveals. Other institutions are following suit
It was a faustian bargain—and it certainly made editors at National Public Radio squirm.

The deal was this: NPR, along with a select group of media outlets, would get a briefing about an upcoming announcement by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration a day before anyone else. But in exchange for the scoop, NPR would have to abandon its reportorial independence. The FDA would dictate whom NPR's reporter could and couldn't interview.

“My editors are uncomfortable with the condition that we cannot seek reaction,” NPR reporter Rob Stein wrote back to the government officials offering the deal. Stein asked for a little bit of leeway to do some independent reporting but was turned down flat. Take the deal or leave it.

Samsung Note 2 Mobile Phone 'Catches Fire' on Indigo Flight 6E-054 Passenger Jet from Singapore to India

A Samsung Galaxy Note 2 phone is believed to have
emitted smoke on board a passenger jet from
Singapore to India this morning.
[Our comment:  We are posting many articles on "exploding" Samsung cell phones in the hope that users will take heed.  But they think it won't happen to them, just as they think they will never one day become ill or electrosensitive from exposure to wireless technology.]

Nokia's Technology Director, Matti Niemelä: Mobile Radiation Destroyed My Health

Nokia's technology director, Matti Niemelä: Mobile Radiation destroyed my health

vaken.se, 30 May 2016 (Google translation with grammatical corrections)

Matti Niemelä is one of Nokia's former technical directors, and has been involved in the development of many of the early mobile phones for Nokia. Matti became seriously ill from mobile industry microwave radiation. In addition, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS). Some studies suggest that radiation can increase the risk of MS.

Niemelä believes that we have been silent for too long about the risks. He is particularly worried about children. But the Vice President of Nokia claims: "All Nokia products fulfill international requirements and limits."

For Tampere-based Matti Niemelä, 44, life was like a movie when he was young.  He was recruited to work for Nokia in 1997. The brilliant young man advanced rapidly to become Nokia's chief technology officer in less than ten years and was involved in the development of mobile phones, access memories, and WLAN Wi-Fi solutions.

In 2007, Niemelä's career came to a halt when his health failed. Today he can only move with the help of a walker. Niemelä refuses to use a wheelchair.

Peer-reviewed study documents rising infant mortality rates over the past 25 years in zip codes surrounding Diablo Canyon

SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 19, 2016

Today, the World Business Academy announced the publication of a scientific study that it commissioned to closely examine recent public health data showing abnormally high levels of infant deaths near the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant.

This study by Dr. Christopher Busby appears in the peer-reviewed Jacobs Journal of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine (See attached copies of “Article Summary” and of full article, “Is there evidence of adverse health effects near US nuclear installations? Infant mortality in coastal communities near the Diablo Canyon nuclear power station in California, 1989-2012”) [See link below].

Lucibel and pure LiFi Bring Industrial-Grade LiFi to Market

Lucibel and pureLiFi bring industrial-grade LiFi to market
by Julien Happich, electronics-eetimes.com, 22 September 2016

French luminaire manufacturer Lucibel has launched what the company claims to be the world's first industrialized LiFi luminaire, enabling Internet access through light.

The luminaires support bidirectional data transfers at up to 42Mbps. A USB LiFi module that plugs into the user's PC receives the data and communicates back to the luminaire. The LiFi luminaires require to be connected to an Internet server via a RJ45 cable and compliment Wifi in places where it is not available or badly deployed. The LiFi luminaire and USB key co-developed by Lucibel and pureLifi will be exclusively manufactured by Lucibel in France. LiFi networks cannot be hacked without a line of sight, making them very secure. The absence of electromagnetic waves makes them suitable in hospitals, nursery, schools, and they can accommodate a high density of users in co-working spaces, airports, hotels, or meeting rooms.

Man's shock as Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phone explodes 'like a firework' next to his bed while he slept

The smartphone began hissing then exploded, before the room filled with smoke

A man had the shock of his life when he jolted awake to the terrifying sound of his phone EXPLODING next to his bed.

Darren Healy, from Longsight, was sleeping soundly next to partner Kian at about 11.45pm last night, when he awoke to see his Samsung Galaxy Note 7 blowing up ‘like a firework’ on his bedside table.

He said: “I went to bed and next thing I know, I was in a nightmare. I heard this hissing sound – my phone looked like a firework going off and the room was filled with smoke.

Electromagnetic Frequency Standards Unsatisfactory

Indeed it should. The growing minority who recognize and understand the health ramifications of wireless exposure are justifiably concerned.

Phone Masts 35 Metres from Our Windows

Phone masts 35 metres from our windows

I have often written about electrosensitivity and mobile phone radiation on this blog – but I never thought I would find myself opposing an installation on the roof of our next door neighbours!!

Those many of you who have visited Lawn Road will recognise No 5 on the left of the picture and will also recognise the small block of flats, Troyes Court, which is our next door neighbour.

Troyes Court was built in the 1950s after a bomb had destroyed the two pairs of houses at the end of the road and it belongs to Camden Council. Although a few of the 24 flats have been sold off, the majority are still lived in by council tenants, many of whom would class as ‘vulnerable’ – elderly, ill or disabled in some way.

Canada: The Increase of Brain Tumours in Adolescents

The Increase of Brain Tumours in Adolescents
c4st.org, 2016

In March of this year, Prevent Cancer Now posted a blog on their website called “Brain tumours now the most frequent form of cancer in U.S. adolescents: Ground-breaking American study.” It is a piece that depicts the staggering rate at which brain tumours are now affecting America’s youth. Not only are these brain tumours increasing in Americans but Canadians as well. Canadian adolescents and young adults are finding increased rates of brain cancer in line with the US findings.

Cell phones emit radiofrequency energy (radio waves), which is a form of non-ionizing radiation. Cell phone use in Canada has become unprecedented with 28.8 million currently in use. Canada also has the 4th heaviest mobile data users in the world. The amount of radiation from these devices Canadians are being exposed to, has and continues to grow exponentially as these wireless devices are now being brought to school, being kept under pillows, and being used to watch streaming content.
