1) The tenth smartphone model found to exceed the SAR limit. Dr. Arazi continues the fight to have the phones that exceed the allowed limits to be withdrawn from the market – more than 250 models that are still being sold and used.
Tenth smartphone exceeding SAR: the Logicom M BOT 60 measured at 2.81 W/kg
“We advise all consumers concerned not to let this happen and to ask the distributors who sold them these smartphones to refund them and provide them with a new mobile phone for free. And this without presuming any possible legal actions by future groups. Feel free to contact us if you are in this situation.”
2) Another inconsistency in Health Canada [HC] demands answers. A member sent in another example of HC saying what is ethical regarding one category while they continue to ignore the Precautionary Principle re. EMR, allowing conflicts of interest within their agency, the panel that reviews Safety Code 6, and in the evidence they consider. Often, HC will not consider studies done by independent researchers, while giving great weight to industry-funded studies. If you have or find other examples, please send to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org with “Health Canada’s inconsistency” on the subject line.
Dairy farmers vs. vegans: Health Canada prepares to rewrite the food guide
“Health Canada says it excluded studies produced by industry. “Let’s just say there is potential for either real or perceived conflict of interest for those sorts of reports,” said Hasan Hutchinson, director general of the office of nutrition policy and promotion.”
3) In the UK, customers are being bullied into accepting smeters even though there is no law requiring it. Why is this strong-armed approach being used in so many different countries? What is the push? Is it that “they” want our data? It is hard to understand why the same tactics are used and the same lies are being told while the same problems exist.
Energy suppliers are still ‘bullying’ customers over smart meters even though they are not compulsory
The scheme has been beset by problems, with some meters preventing users from switching supplier to take advantage of cheaper tariffs if they wish to keep the ‘smart’ facility.
Experts also have security concerns over the meters, claiming they may leave households vulnerable to cyber attack.
The programme is estimated to have cost households an average of £450 in higher energy bills.Ralph Taylor, a retired electronics engineer from Cullompton in Devon, received the Eon letter this month and was outraged.
He says: ‘I immediately went on to the Eon website and lodged a complaint about the choice of words. I pointed out no customer is obliged to have a smart meter.’
Ralph, who uses Eon to supply his electricity and gas, is not keen on smart meters, as he says they are vulnerable to cyber attack. This is based on a career in the aircraft industry.
