U.S. Wireless and Cell Phone EMF/RF Radiation TV News In 2015

Want to Know Which US TV Network Provided the Most News Coverage about Wireless EMF/RF Radiation Issues in 2015?

Thanks again to the research of Joel M. Moskowitz PhD, Director and Principal Investigator, Center for Family and Community Health at UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health, we have the answer!

Since July, 2014, television stations in the U.S. were most likely to report news stories on cell phone radiation health risks (31 stories) including seven stories that focused on risks to children. The next most common stories either discussed radiation risks from cell antennas/towers (14 stories) or wireless Smart Meters (11 stories). Seven news stories addressed health risks from Wi-Fi exposure, and five stories focused on risks from wireless devices or wearables.

The winner again is CBS. Since July, 2014, CBS and its affiliates provided the most television news coverage about wireless radiation and health reporting on safety issues related to cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi, and smart meters. Besides CBS national news, almost all major CBS stations ran stories including stations in Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Charleston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, San Antonio, San Francisco, Spokane, and Washington, DC. CBS was the only TV network to cover the year’s two major wireless policy developments: the International EMF Scientist Appeal and the Berkeley cell phone “Right to Know” ordinance.

With the recent publication of Norm Alster’s book,”Captured agency: How the Federal Communications Commission is dominated by the industries it presumably regulates,” it is time for CBS 60 Minutes to do an investigative story about why our government has not updated the obsolete wireless regulations adopted in 1996 that fail to protect the health of the American public.

The above results are based upon Google searches for TV news stories about wireless radiation health risks where the video was posted online; thus, the actual amount of TV news coverage is underestimated.

Consumer Reports Issues Cell Phone EMF/RF Radiation Warnings

On Sep 24, 2015 Consumer Reports issues cell phone safety recommendations.

Consumer Reports published an online article to appear in the November 2015 issue of Consumer Reports magazine entitled, “Does Cell-Phone Radiation Cause Cancer?” Consumer Reports advises cell phone users take safety precautions, government strengthen cell phone radiation regulations, and manufacturers prominently display “steps that cell-phone users can take to reduce exposure to cell-phone radiation.”

According to Consumer Reports, most Americans fall squarely on the “don’t worry” side. In a recent nationally representative Consumer Reports survey of 1,000 adults, only 5 percent said they were very concerned about the radiation from cell phones, and less than half took steps to limit their exposure to it. Although in May 2015, a group of 190 independent scientists from 39 countries, who in total have written more than 2,000 papers on the topic, called on the United Nations, the World Health Organization, and national governments to develop stricter controls on cell-phone radiation. They point to growing research as well as the classification of cell-phone radiation as a possible carcinogen in 2011 by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, with part of the World Health Organization suggesting that the low levels of radiation from cell phones could have potentially cancer-causing effects.

“I think the overall evidence that wireless radiation might cause adverse health effects is now strong enough that it’s almost unjustifiable for government agencies and scientists not to be alerting the public to the potential hazards,” says David O. Carpenter, M.D., director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University at Albany in New York and one of the authors of the recent letter to the U.N. and WHO.

In addition, The city council of Berkeley, California acted in May 2015, as it approved a “Right to Know” law that requires electronics retailers to notify consumers about the proper handling of cell phones. The CTIA-The Wireless Association, a trade group, tried to block that law from going into effect, as it successfully did after San Francisco passed its own Right to Know law five years ago, but Federal District Court Judge Edward Chen gave the City of Berkeley a green light to implement the City’s landmark cell phone “Right To Know” law.

Ex-WHO General Director Warns About Wireless Technology

On Friday the 14th of August 2015, retired World Health Organization General-Director and Prime Minister of Norway, Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland was interviewed by the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten.

One of the issues raised in the interview was her current thoughts on wireless electromagnetic / radio frequency radiation. Her statement was very crystal clear, “Wireless Technology has Health Effects There is NO Doubt ” as she expanded on the topic.

Effects of EMF/RF Radiation to Red Blood Cells

At N8 State we consistently strive to conduct and offer new innovating research in the field of EMF/RF radiation to provide proof of damaging effects, and proof of protection from N8 State.

Here are a few subject samples from an Independent study showing the harmful effects of low-grade Electromagnetic Frequency / Radio Frequency radiation to red blood cells. Each test subject had blood drawn immediately after each test, and then immediately viewed and filmed under microscope. The tests were conducted one after the other with no resting periods other than drawing blood.

The first image is the subject’s natural or baseline blood drawn before using a cell phone.

The second image is the subject’s blood drawn after a 5 minute cell phone call showing red blood cells(RBC’s) to flatten and cluster into what is called a rouleaux formation, an impact almost synonymous with signs of sickness as red blood cells cannot carry enough oxygen.

The third image is the subject’s blood drawn after a 5 minute cell phone call using a cell phone protected. You will notice the blood drawn in the third image is similar and in some cases better than the natural blood drawn in the first image, bringing you back to your N8 state.

 

 

 

 

 

U.S. TV News on Wireless and Cell Phone EMF/RF Radiation

The winner is CBS. During the past year, CBS and its affiliates provided the most television news coverage about wireless electromagnetic frequency / radio frequency radiation and health reporting on safety issues related to cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi, and smart meters. Besides CBS national news, almost all major CBS stations ran stories including stations in New York, Boston, Washington, DC; Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Miami, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

News coverage on the other major networks paled in comparison. Leaving the question, are advertisers and the wireless industry influencing television news coverage of wireless EMF/RF Radiation safety issues?

200+ International Scientist Submit EMF/RF Radiation Appeal To U.N. & W.H.O.

Scientists call for Protection from Non-ionizing Electromagnetic Field Exposure.

The appeal states, “We are scientists engaged in the study of biological and health effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF). Based upon peer-reviewed, published research, we have serious concerns regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices. These include–but are not limited to–radiofrequency radiation (RFR) emitting devices, such as cellular and cordless phones and their base stations, Wi-Fi, broadcast antennas, smart meters, and baby monitors as well as electric devices and infra-structures used in the delivery of electricity that generate extremely-low frequency electromagnetic field (ELF EMF)”.

On June 8, 2015Joel M. Moskowitz, Ph.D. submitted the International EMF Scientist Appeal along with the Press Release and a description of the Appeal to the Federal Communications Commission in response to Proceeding Number 13-84. These three documents can be downloaded from FCC web site http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/comment/view?id=60001060375. A summary of key documents submitted to the FCC under Proceeding Number 13-84 is available at http://bit.ly/FCCkeydocs.

Cell Phone “Right to Know” Ordinance on EMF/RF Radiation

Berkeley, Ca, USA Adopts Cell Phone “Right to Know” Ordinance on Unanimous Vote.

Tuesday, May 12, 2015, the Berkeley City Council adopted the cell phone “Right to Know” ordinance on a unanimous vote of 9-0.  Berkeley is the first city in the nation to pass a cell phone Electromagnetic / Radio Frequency (EMF/RF) radiation ordinance since San Francisco disbanded its ordinance after a two-year court battle with the CTIA.

Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Lessig helped draft the ordinance and presented it to the Council on behalf of city staff. After the vote he discusses in full detail the drafting of the ordinance on his blog site, noting that no doubt many of the people fighting for the ordinance have a firm belief that non-ionizing radiation presents a significant and under appreciated health risk.

The only opposition to the ordinance came from the CTIA–The Wireless Association. The CTIA claims that consumers would be scared if they were directed to read the information that the FCC requires they provide to consumers.

190 Scientists Petition U.N. and W.H.O. to Protect Humans and Wildlife

International Scientists Appeal to U.N. to Protect Humans and Wildlife from Electromagnetic / Radio Frequency Fields and Wireless Technology.

New York, NY, May 11, 2015. 190 scientists from 39 nations submitted an appeal to the United Nations, UN member states and the World Health Organization (WHO) requesting they adopt more protective exposure guidelines for electromagnetic fields (EMF) and wireless technology in the face of increasing evidence of risk. These exposures are a rapidly growing form of environmental pollution worldwide. The “International EMF Scientist Appeal” asks the Secretary General and UN affiliated bodies to encourage precautionary measures, to limit EMF exposures, and to educate the public about health risks, particularly to children and pregnant women.

Martin Blank, PhD of Columbia University representing 190 international scientists in the Appeal highlights the risks of electromagnetic fields emitted by telecommunications and utility technologies. Cautioning strongly, Dr. Blank says, “The time to deal with the harmful biological and health effects is long overdue. To protect our children, ourselves and our ecosystem, we must reduce exposure by establishing more protective guidelines.” Dr. Blank’s video is produced by ElectromagneticHealth.org on behalf of international scientists and the Appeal Committee.

Can Wearable Technology Hurt Your Vision?

Essilor is a world leading provider of eyeglass lenses, with their number one priority being you, the customer, and they have something to say about wearables.

We live in a world full of constantly changing and evolving technology.  One of the latest trends in tech is wearable technologies, such as Google Glass, smart watches or fitness trackers. In the past, most of these technologies were created for professional and industrial use, but these new types of devices are also being incorporated into daily life and used by general consumers.

With wearable devices like Google Glass, users have access to a mini computer emitting EMF/RF Radiation everywhere they go with a small screen integrated into the lens. This allows users to take pictures, watch videos, get directions and even browse the internet. While all of this makes life much more interactive, it can also lead to a few risks

American Academy Of Pediatrics Letter to FCC on EMF/RF Radiation

Are We Playing It Safe With Our Kids And Our Future???

Cindy Russell, MD is the VP for Community Health and chair of the Santa Clara County Medical Association Environmental Health Committee/SCCMA. Dr Russell writes about today’s increasing number of physicians, scientists, and parents that are concerned about long term health effects from WiFi and Cell Phones in schools. Her recent article highlights more of the concern and the physicians letter to the FCC for changes to be made immediately.

In a letter from the American Academy of Pediatrics to the FCC on August 29, 2013, “Current FCC standards do not account for the unique vulnerability and use patterns specific to pregnant women and children. It is essential that any new standard for cell phones or wireless devises be based on protecting the youngest and most vulnerable populations to ensure they are safeguarded throughout their lifetimes.”
