Monsanto Faces Hundreds of New Cancer Lawsuits as Debate Over Glyphosate Rages On

"Monsanto's newly released documents expose a culture corrupt enough to shock the company's most jaded critics," Kennedy said in a statement. "Those papers show sociopathic company officials ghostwriting scientific studies to conceal Roundup's risks from Monsanto's regulators and customers, including food consumers, farmers and the public."

Monsanto has been slapped with another slew of cancer lawsuits over its most popular pesticide as the debate over the health risks of glyphosate rages on.

5G and IoT: Total Technological Control Grid Being Rolled Out Fast

5G and IoT: Total Technological Control Grid Being Rolled Out Fast
by Makia Freeman, Contributor, Waking Times, 23 March 2017

5G is being rolled out fast right now, with Verizon testing it out in 11 US cities and ATT also conducting experiments. For those who don’t know, 5G is the latest wireless system that telecommunications companies are trying to implement to service wireless communication. It’s designed to allow faster downloads of more data. It uses the 28, 37 and 39 GHz bands, also known as millimetre wave (mmW) spectrum. 5G, which comes from the term 5th generation, is designed to work in conjunction with what former CIA head David Petraeus called the Internet of Things or IoT. The agenda is to hook every single material thing on the planet, as well as humans themselves, onto a vast planet-wide web where everything and everyone become nodes on the network – connected by microchips which are nano-size and can be inhaled (like smart dust). 

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Study Subjects Needed By University Research Team

We have checked with the person responsible for this study, Dr. Pamela Gibson, who says people from any country may participate.

Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) or idiopathy environmental intolerance (IEI) results from exposure to electromagnetic waves (EMF/RF/ELF) due to the overwhelming explosion of ‘smart’ technology appliances and gadgets which use either microwaves or some other wave on the electromagnetic spectrum.

EHS Research Study

James Madison University Environmental Sensitivities Research Team is conducting research surveys in chemical and/or electrical sensitivities. Below is the request for participants to reply and participate, which will be extremely helpful in establishing data to document what’s called non-thermal radiation adverse health effects from EMF/RF/ELF.

Japan court shocks nuclear industry with liability ruling
by Shaun Burnie, atimes.com, 20 March 2017

Court sends a shockwave through Japan's nuclear establishment with ruling on Fukushima accident.

Japan’s atomic power establishment is in shock following the court ruling on Friday that found the state and the operator of the Fukushima nuclear plant liable for failing to take preventive measures against the tsunami that crippled the facility.

The reason for the shock is the ruling has wide-ranging implications for Japan’s entire nuclear power industry and the efforts to restart reactors throughout the country.

FUKUSHIMA DAIICHI NUCLEAR POWER STATION — Six years after the largest nuclear disaster in a quarter-century, Japanese officials have still not solved a basic problem: what to do with an ever-growing pile of radioactive waste. Each form of waste at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, where three reactors melted down after an earthquake and a tsunami on March 11, 2011, presents its own challenges.

Is 'Junk Journalism' Complaining about 'Junk Science' in The Baltimore Sun?

Is ‘junk journalism’ complaining about ‘junk science’ in The Baltimore Sun?
by Dariusz Leszczynski, betweenrockandhardplace.wordpress.com, 12 March 2017

this post is open for comments
(see original article)

The most efficient way to mislead an inexperienced reader is to write a story with a pinch of truth, a pinch of ambiguity and a dose of falsehoods or misrepresentations.

This is the way how Alex Berezow and Josh Bloom, of the ‘American Council on Science and Health’, wrote a recent story for The Baltimore Sun: Recommendation to limit Md. School Wi-Fi based on ‘junk science’.

The story was written in context of the recent developments in the area of the use of wi-fi in schools:

“…The Children’s Environmental Health and Protection Advisory Council (CEHPAC), an agency within Maryland’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, has recommended that schools reduce or eliminate students’ exposure to Wi-Fi because it believes wireless signals might cause cancer…”.

Cynthia Ayers is a national security threat analyst, currently working as an independent consultant within the Mission Control and Cyber Division of the Center for Strategic Leadership, U.S. Army War College. She is also serving as Deputy to the Executive Director of the Congressionally sponsored Task Force on National and Homeland Security.

On March 7, 2017, Ayers presented testimony before the Michigan House Committee on Energy Policy. Her testimony included an analysis of how smart meters introduce safety and security threats to the electric grid and to civilization itself. Excerpts from the written testimony [1] include the following:

“My testimony will concentrate on the possibility of a catastrophic cyber attack to the systems we depend on for the delivery of electricity – the lifeblood of our modern civilization. …

Robots Delivering Pizza and House Viewing by VR: Is 5G Really the Future?

"The proportion of mobile-phone owners that own smartphones – which has driven the data and video explosion – has surged from a little over 20% in 2011 to 75% last year. Data usage per phone user rocketed from an average of 0.11Gb to 1.26Gb between 2011 and 2016, as gaming and video streaming services such as Netflix took off on mobiles."

[We have a question: Is providing individuals with faster gaming and video streaming services on mobile phones via 5G technology worth the health and environmental consequences that will result?]

Robots delivering pizza and house viewing by VR: is 5G really the future?
Mark Sweney, The Guardian, 11 March 2017

The blazingly fast next-generation mobile data network is not far away – but not everyone is convinced that we really need it

Philip Hammond says he wants the UK to become a “world leader” in 5G, the next-generation mobile technology that proponents say is the key to an internet-connected world of driverless cars, smart home appliances, delivery drones and lightning-fast video on the go.

Letter to Seattle Public Schools Superintendent on Wi-Fi in Public Schools

"I am concerned, not only for my own child, but for all children, especially those who may suffer from a variety of pre-existing stressors – socioeconomic, racial, nutritional, environmental, etc. – thus making them more prone to adverse health reactions and consequent learning disorders, due to the toxic effects of radio-frequency radiation."

Letter to Seattle Public Schools Superintendent, Doctor Larry Nyland on WiFi in Public Schools
Posted by Jordancommunichi.org, 13 March 2017

Dear Dr. Nyland,

I am excited that my daughter will be attending a Seattle public school next year. I was particularly impressed by Principal Wiley’s introduction at a recent open house at Franklin High School. I am a strong believer in public education.

However, I am concerned about the health effects of WiFi, particularly for children whose cellular metabolism is more rapid than adults, and who are thus more vulnerable to molecular and DNA damage due to the intense and continuous exposure that radio-frequency radiation presents.

5G's Rise Must Coincide with Sustainability

Too often, ICT infrastructure is created without sufficient
importance being placed on the sustainability of these
energy-guzzling elements.  5G will radically increase the
demands placed on this infrastructure.
"Data centres already account for 5% of global CO2 omissions – as much as the aviation industry."

5G’s rise must coincide with sustainability
by Nick IsmailOpinioninformation-age.com, 15 March 2017

The advent of 5G must coincide with an even stronger focus on sustainability to avoid escalation in ICT carbon footprint

Whilst 5G is set to bring a range of benefits to business consumers, it will also increase the capacity to create and transfer more data than ever, and without a more significant move to sustainable practise there will be a large increase in the carbon footprint of data centres across the world.
