2019-10-29 French govt. proposals re. cell phones

1)  A member has gone to the trouble of finding a little info about 3 people who will be moderating and presenting at tomorrow‘s event at Simon Fraser University re. 5G and smart cities.

 

All 3 are heavily affiliated with the wireless industry.  Please see below in Letters.  There is no reason to expect that any of these people will provide any of the negative aspects of 5G, so it’s up to those who are able to attend.
The University has a duty to present both sides, so we should ask for equal time for experts to explain the problems and reasons that 5G should be banned. The students and public deserve this information.

 

2)  For years, Arthur Firstenberg has fought to alert people and those responsible about the dangers associated with proliferation of wireless radiation.  In this interview by Lloyd Burrell, Arthur tells how his life changed dramatically after he became sensitive to RF while he was a medical student.

3)   Thanks to the persistence of Dr. Arazi and others re. Phonegate, recommendations are being made by French govt. departments that will allow cell phone users to be better informed about the dangers of these devices. But stronger regulations are needed to reduce exposure to both phones and radiation from cell towers.  We must devise a strategy to get this information to Canadian cell phone users — cell phones are emitting levels of RF that exceed the dangerously high levels allowed by Health Canada’s Safety Code 6.

French ministerial announcements: an important step in our actions to protect the health of mobile phone users

“In a joint statement published today, the French ministries of Health, Ecology and Economy announced several proposals for action to strengthen health protection for mobile phone users in France and Europe. These are in the context of the recommendations made on 21 October 2019 by the French health & safety agency in its report entitled “Mobile phones worn close to the body and health”, and the mobilization actions of our association following the revelation in July 2016 by Dr Marc Arazi of the Phonegate industrial and health scandal.”
