[Press release] Users warned about 3 French mobile phone models from 3 manufacturers by Alert Phone Gate – December 05, 2019

(click on photos to enlarge)

Dear supporters,

We warn against 3 mobile phones of the brands BlackBerry, Doro and Selecline. We ask the French public authorities to withdraw the RTTE versions from the market as soon as possible.

Indeed, these manufacturers have deliberately continued to sell their products on the French market in complete legality, knowing that they are potentially putting their customers’ health at risk. The question also obviously arises at European level. Our press release:   https://www.phonegatealert.org/en/press-release-users-warned-about-3-french-mobile-phone-models-from-3-manufacturers

Thank you for helping us to denounce these actions and to relay our alert as widely as possible.

In July 2019 (updated in September 2019), the French Public Health Agency “Santé Publique France“, together with the Francim cancer registries, the Hospices Civils de Lyon and the Institut National du Cancer, published national estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in metropolitan France between 1990 and 2018. These are based on the modeling of observed incidence data (new cases) until 2015 by cancer registries, supplemented by projections until 2018.

Volume 1 of the report is devoted to solid tumors (27 tumors and 22 subtypes). Between 1990 and 2018, the overall incidence rate of solid tumors remained relatively stable in men and continued to increase in women. At the same time, the annual number of new cases of glioblastoma with histological confirmation (one of the most aggressive types of brain cancer) has increased fourfold and more for both sexes.

In 20 years, the number of glioblastomas multiplied by 4, affecting all ages

Santé Publique France estimates that there will be 3,481 new cases of these glioblastomas in metropolitan France in 2018, 58% of them in men. There were only 823 in 1990….

French ministerial announcements – an important step in our actions to protect the health of mobile phone users by Alert Phone Gate – October 25, 2019

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.

For our President:

“This is undoubtedly another victory for our association and for all the partner organisations, independent scientists, lawyers who are members of the Consortium, journalists who work in France and abroad to protect the health of the 5 billion mobile phone users”.

However, we regret the lack of consultation with the associations that are fighting this fight. We reiterate our call for a meeting with the ministers concerned. To this end, we will take an initiative in the coming days.

ANSES recommendations call upon the public authorities and industry to face their health responsibilities – Anses Experts Report re Mobile Phones Worn Close to the Body and Health – Alert Phone Gate – October 21, 2019

The French National Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES) has just made public the first part of its expert group report entitled “Mobile phones close to the body and health“, dated July 2019. For Dr. Marc Arazi, who launched the alert on the Phonegate scandal in July 2016:

“This is undoubtedly a great step forward and a tremendous recognition for our international alert action. The public and industrial authorities are now faced with their responsibilities and must inform mobile phone users of the health risks involved.”

This had been expected since the end of 2017, following our appeal to the public authorities and the request made by the General Directorate of Health (Ministry for Solidarity and Health) and the Directorate of Risk Prevention (Ministry for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition) to ANSES to be informed of the health risks for adults and children exposed to specific absorption rate (SAR) levels of more than 2 W/kg (European legal limit).

In the next few days, we are going to analyze this 128-page report with the members of our international scientific committee.

Our initial reaction, however, to the recommendations of ANSES is positive. Here is the conclusion of the report signed by the Director General of ANSES, Roger Genet: ….

5G – Mobile Communication – AZK 16 Lecture by Anke Kern – Digitalized into a radiant future – dead certain

http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/5G-Mobile-Communication-AZK-16-Lecture-by-Anke-Kern-Digitalized-into-a-radiant-future-dead-certain-by-KLA.tv-January-24-2019.pdf

Digitalization and mobile communications are issues everyone is talking about these days. They polarize strongly. Is this technology a blessing or a curse? Must progress prevail at last over the die-hard conservatives who would still prefer to use the “bush drum”. Or are the progressive forces consistently hiding the hazards? In her lecture Anke Kern gives an insight into her 15 years of research. She gives a closer look at facts that are consistently kept hidden from the public. People need to know these facts in order to be able to deal with this technology and to draw the right conclusions.

National 5G Day of Action – May 15, 2019

(click on photos to enlarge)

Join Nationwide Rallies, Wednesday, May 15, to Oppose 5G “Small Cell” Towers in Front of Our Homes

From: Ronald M. Powell, Ph.D., Maryland <ronpowell@verizon.net>
Sent: May 4, 2019 8:21 AM

Telecommunications companies are actively deploying new 5G cell towers up and down residential streets in our nation, including here in Maryland.  These 5G cell towers spew radiofrequency radiation 24/7 into our neighborhoods.  This deployment is continuing despite studies by the National Institutes of Health, the World Health Organization, and biomedical researchers worldwide that have linked cellular radiation to cancer and to many other adverse health effects.  Everyone is at risk, but our children are especially vulnerable because they are still developing.

The wealthy telecom companies have powerful allies in government at all levels, but public opposition is growing and is beginning to be noticed by government.  5G can be stopped, but only if the public acts.  If you do NOT want one of these cell towers in front of your home, irradiating you night and day, threatening your health, and depreciating the value of your property, you need to speak up.  Once that cell tower is installed in front of your home, it is too late, as it already is in some neighborhoods in Maryland.

You can learn more, talk to other concerned residents, and voice your opinion at rallies around the Nation on Wednesday, May 15.  That day has been selected as the National 5G Day of Action….

The coordinated events will take place in cities and towns across the country from 12 noon to 1:30 pm (local time) on WednesdayMay 15th. The purpose of these events is to raise public awareness of the issue through media coverage, and to place the burden of responsibility where it belongs:  on those who stand to profit from the deployment of 5G.

Looking to sell utility billing data to lenders, Urjanet rakes in $20 million

https://urjanet.com/services/utility-bill-data/

(click on photos to enlarge)

“Urjanet’s technology is used to track cost and usage information from 4,000 utilities in 30 countries. That data collected from electric, gas, telecommunications, water, and waste providers, is used by small and medium-sized businesses, and multinational companies, to automate accounting and bill processing, manage energy costs, and comply with reporting regulations, the company said….

“Oak HC/FT’s financing will enable us to broaden our reach to the world’s largest corporations and utility providers, as well as accelerate our launch of new applications using utility data as an alternative source for credit scoring and identity verification,” said Sanjoy Malik, Urjanet’s chief executive, in a statement.”

Our data is more valuable than the electricity being sold.  And, YES, BC Hydro and FortisBC are clients of Urjanet.  Search:  https://urjanet.com/utility-data/  by typing in BC Hydro and FortisBC.

Surveillance Capitalism Includes Utility “Smart” Meters. Utility Companies Collect Customer Usage Data 24/7. Are Yours Selling It to 3rd Parties?

“Recently, Harvard professor Shoshana Zuboff published a new book called The Age of Surveillance Capitalism which reveals how businesses not only offer services to customers – they collect personal data on them in order to sell it to 3rd parties.  Much of this is done without customer knowledge or consent….

Please note: This article includes the updated version of “Take Back Your Power”, which is very good, until the last 10 min. or so in which he speaks of liability, legality, etc. I wish to warn you that Josh makes statements that do not pertain to BC where smeters are mandated by law. The law was written by the Liberals and is supported by the NDP. Until the Clean Energy Act is changed, we are stuck if we want electricity. Many of us have paid thousands in extortion fees — which have yet to be accounted for — and many of us continue to pay. Many others, the vast majority, were given no choice to even pay the extortion. Josh also promotes his unique, and “legal” approach that lawyers say will not work and which never managed to prevent the installation of or the removal of a smeter in BC — or elsewhere that I have been able to confirm. Our only way to protect our homes and our rights is to demand that these things be removed from our homes and analog meters returned by demanding that the Clean Energy Act be amended.

Also in this article is a link to an interesting article about how a company (Urjanet) is gathering and selling data obtained via smeters to various corporations, including financial institutions which are using it to determine credit scores. This is yet more evidence that smeters are gathering data not needed for billing and, without our permission or awareness, it can be sold.
