1)    The most recent article on “Activist Post”:

What Do CBS’s “60 Minutes”, Dr. Oz, The “Digital Divide” in Public Schools, and 5G Cell Towers Have in Common? More Than You May Think.

For a year or so, tech employees have been expressing remorse for being paid to deliberately create software that affects our dopamine levels and other neurotransmitters.  2017 CBS 60 Minutes segment, “Brain Hacking provides testimony.  Other articles and TV segments have followed.  The most compelling statement seems to be from Nest Founder, Tony Faddell.

“I Wake Up In Cold Sweats Thinking, What Did We Bring To The World?”

2)    Wireless devices can cause sleep problems. The microwave radiation has been shown to reduce melatonin production. In addition, screens from computers, tablets, etc. emit blue light that also affects melatonin. Children are suffering psychologically due to lack of sleep.

School kids’ mental health suffering due to late-night tablet and phone use, teachers say

“Ms Bobos said schools have seen an increase in referrals to psychologists, but that many youth mental health programs run by groups like Headspace did not begin until the age of 12.

Latham Primary school teacher Erin Weston said some of her students have confided in her that they are self-harming, but getting access to health services can be difficult.

“I’ve had a lot of students over the years who have had anxiety or other mental health disorders, [but] it’s hard to get access to support for them when they’re in the primary schools years. It tends to be 12 and up or 13 and older.”

Professor Sarah Blunden, director of the Australian Centre for Education in Sleep, explains that the blue light in mobile devices delays the release of melatonin, pushing back the body’s circadian rhythms — the cycles which determine when we sleep and wake.”

3)    In the UK, prices for gas are increased due, in large part, to the costs of the smeter program.  The promise of reduced costs is never realized.

Energy customers brace for further price increases

British Gas blamed increased wholesale prices for its price rises, as well as the ongoing costs of the smart meter rollout and the implementation of other policies intended to reduce carbon emissions.

4)    Re. above ground transmission lines proposed by BC Hydro. The fields will be dangerously high and people are asking for the power lines, will be close to homes, to be put underground. BC Hydro is ignoring the health risks.

Anmore Petition Update to BC Ministers EMPR and Health and the office of the Premier

“Wrong Emission Threshold:

BC Hydro mistakenly follows their “safe” 2,000 mG emission threshold. However, a continuous 24/7 emission of 2,000 mG for adjacent residents would be fatal; the maximum emission under such transmission lines are about 190-200 mG worldwide, while the Toronto Public Health Report (2008) indicates risks for long-term health effects with above 1mG constant long-term emissions (living close to power lines). BC Hydro’s EMF allowance of 2,000 mG is used in the wrong context and may be rather relate to (1) lethal EMF emission at one time, (2) short-term maximum EMF allowance (few minutes), or (3) additive EMF emission allowance per year or lifetime for living adjacent to power lines.”
