1) A call for more studies into health effects of milliwave technology after some serious health effects have been found. And a call for Precautionary Principle to be implemented.

Towards 5G communication systems: Are there health implications?
The spread of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) is rising and health effects are still under investigation. RF-EMF promote oxidative stress, a condition involved in cancer onset, in several acute and chronic diseases and in vascular homeostasis. Although some evidences are still controversial, the WHO IARC classified RF-EMF as “possible carcinogenic to humans”, and more recent studies suggested reproductive, metabolic and neurologic effects of RF-EMF, which are also able to alter bacterial antibiotic resistance. In this evolving scenario, although the biological effects of 5G communication systems are very scarcely investigated, an international action plan for the development of 5G networks has started, with a forthcoming increment in devices and density of small cells, and with the future use of millimeter waves (MMW). Preliminary observations showed that MMW increase skin temperature, alter gene expression, promote cellular proliferation and synthesis of proteins linked with oxidative stress, inflammatory and metabolic processes, could generate ocular damages, affect neuro-muscular dynamics. Further studies are needed to better and independently explore the health effects of RF-EMF in general and of MMW in particular. However, available findings seem sufficient to demonstrate the existence of biomedical effects, to invoke the precautionary principle, to define exposed subjects as potentially vulnerable and to revise existing limits. An adequate knowledge of pathophysiological mechanisms linking RF-EMF exposure to health risk should also be useful in the current clinical practice, in particular in consideration of evidences pointing to extrinsic factors as heavy contributors to cancer risk and to the progressive epidemiological growth of noncommunicable diseases.”
2) The industry is pushing in many places to be allowed to install their microcells on public property without any restrictions and paying small amounts or none at all for the privilege, just as they are doing in BC. Does anyone know if Telus is paying any municipalities for use of our land to irradiate us? In Maryland, they are trying to get Bills passed to eliminate any protest.

3) Langley farm destroyed due to fire apparently caused by an overheated cell phone. Laptops, cell phones, etc. need to be on hard surfaces (non-combustible is best) when being charged. Being on a softer surface like a chair or bed can cause overheating because air cannot circulate around it. Devices with lithium batteries, whether ion or metal, explode when overheated. Smeters can overheat when in the hot summer sun or in a garage/storage area where temps are increased.
“A B.C. couple are demanding Apple pay $600,000 in uninsured losses after they were forced to close their farm business following a devastating house fire that they claim was sparked by a faulty iPhone.”
Even e-cigarettes’ lithium batteries are exploding when heated from being in a pocket.
“Exploding e-Cigarettes Are a Growing Danger to Public Health Whatever their physiological effects, the most immediate threat of these nicotine-delivery devices comes from a battery problem called thermal runaway”
4) Major environmental court decision – an injunction stops pesticide spraying in California. Many of the excuses given by industry, the problems, etc., as well as the concerns that led to this decision, are similar to microwave radiation. This could give momentum to the anti-wireless radiation people down there, which could really help us.
California Court Ruling Ends Decades of State Pesticide Spraying
“The judge has told the state that harmful pesticides simply can’t be sprayed indiscriminately, without robust consideration of impacts on people, animals and water,” said Bill Allayaud, California director of government affairs for the Environmental Working Group. “The ruling also affirms that Californians have the right to know about pesticides being sprayed around them and the ability to challenge spraying that endangers public health and natural resources.”
