Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola     

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) cause massive mitochondrial dysfunction, thus raising the risk for, and worsening, chronic and degenerative diseases
  • A perfect storm of DNA and cellular protein and membrane destruction is created when you aren’t burning fat for fuel (which creates excess superoxide) and then get exposed to EMFs
  • By creating doubt and controversy, the wireless industry effectively prevents the public from knowing the truth and demanding safer products. Another wireless industry strategy that prevents the problem from becoming public knowledge is the capturing of our federal regulatory agencies
  • Elon Musk’s Starlink project, which is slated to deploy up to 42,000 satellites into orbit around the earth, will blanket the entire planet with 5G internet frequencies. You won’t be able to escape it
  • Based on the studies already done on previous generations of wireless, we know it’s harmful, and 5G is only going to make matters worse, as it will dramatically increase our exposures

I was recently interviewed by Siim Land about my new book, “EMF*D,” described by Siim as “the most comprehensive guide … to everything you need to know about EMF.”

In it, I explain what electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are, the different types of EMFs you’re exposed to, the harms associated with exposure, the concerns surrounding 5G and, ultimately, how to protect yourself and limit your exposure.

As I explain in the interview, the thing that catalyzed me to write “EMF*D” was my deep appreciation of the impact of mitochondrial function in health and disease. Once I realized how EMFs impact mitochondrial function — because it’s very clear that EMF causes massive mitochondrial dysfunction — the danger our wireless society poses became very clear to me.

Just recently, I read a study1 stressing the importance of mitochondrial numbers for improving senescent cells — cells that are, in a manner of speaking, “senile” and have stopped reproducing properly. Instead, senescent cells produce inflammation, contributing to old age and, ultimately, death.

The fewer mitochondria you have, and the more dysfunctional they are, the faster you’ll age and the more prone you’ll be to chronic degenerative disease. By inducing mitochondrial dysfunction, our wireless world may well be driving us all into an early grave.

Cellphone Industry Hides Truth by Manufacturing Doubt

Considering the research data now available, you’d think everyone would understand and accept the fact that EMF is a serious health danger, yet many are still completely in the dark. With “EMF*D,” I hope to help more people understand this biological threat.

In 2011, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified radiofrequency EMFs as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”2 Then, in 2018, the U.S. National Toxicology Program published two lifetime exposure studies conclusively showing cellphone exposure causes cancer.

The NTP’s findings were also duplicated by the Italian Ramazzini Institute just a couple of months later. In the wake of these studies, Fiorella Belpoggi, principal investigator and director of the Ramazzini Institute, urged the IARC to upgrade RF-EMF to “probably carcinogenic” or higher.3

Now, just like smoking cigarettes, EMF exposure takes decades before its effects become evident (and even then, the health problem might not be directly linkable to EMF exposure), and this is a significant part of the problem as it allows the telecom industry to — just like the tobacco industry before it — whitewash concerns, manipulate research and prevent proper safety studies from being done.

There’s no doubt cellphone manufacturers are aware that EMFs from cellphones contribute to health problems, though. The evidence has been published for decades, and new research is constantly being added.

However, by downplaying positive findings and saying that findings of harm are inconclusive — in other words, by creating doubt and controversy — they effectively prevent the public from knowing the truth and demanding safer products.

Wireless Industry Is Even Worse Than the Tobacco Industry

Another wireless industry strategy that prevents the problem from becoming public knowledge is the capturing of our federal regulatory agencies, which the tobacco industry wasn’t even capable of.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Surgeon General and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention all warned people about smoking, yet the tobacco industry continued successfully selling cigarettes for another 20 or 30 years. The wireless industry, on the other hand, has captured the federal regulatory agencies, which prevents those warnings from being issued in the first place.

For example, the chief lobbyist for the wireless industry, Tom Wheeler, was appointed by President Obama to be the head of the Federal Communications Commission, which is a most egregious example of the fox guarding the hen house. Not surprisingly, then, in December 2019 the FCC announced they’re going to fund rural 5G deployment to the tune of $9 billion!4

As detailed in my February 1, 2020, article, “The War Against 5G Heats Up,” the telecom industry has engaged in a vast and illegal fraud where, for decades, basic telephone rate payers — wire line customers — have funded the deployment of wireless in general, and now 5G in particular, through their phone bills.

This illegal redirection of funds amounts to about $1 trillion over the past 15 years, and without this money, 5G would not have been possible in the first place. Were the wireless industry forced to pay its fair share of infrastructure costs, 5G simply wouldn’t be economically feasible as a consumer product.

What’s so Great About 5G?

What exactly is 5G and why do some people want it? In short, it’s all about improving speed. Compared to 4G, 5G is 100 times faster. On a side note, you can determine what your bandwidth is by pulling up fast.com on your cellphone’s browser. If you’re on 4G, your bandwidth is probably not going to exceed 10 megabytes per second (mb/s). If you’re on 5G, it’s going to be between 500 and 800 mb/s.

So, the primary benefit of 5G is noticeably faster speed. The vast majority of people simply don’t need this kind of bandwidth, but it has great applications for commercial uses such as self-driving cars.

The problem is, 5G may end up making the earth uninhabitable for many who are already struggling with electrosensitivity, and the countless others for whom 5G may prove to be the thing that tips them over the edge into electrohypersensitivity syndrome.

Elon Musk’s Starlink project, which is slated to deploy up to 42,000 satellites into low earth orbit, will blanket the entire planet with 5G internet. You won’t be able to escape it, no matter how far into the wilderness you go.

5G Is a Prescription for Biological Disaster

Then there are the long-term dangers of 5G, which we still do not have a complete picture of. There has not been a single safety study done on 5G. Studies using 2G, 3G and 4G, however, including the NTP and Ramazzini studies, clearly show there’s cause for concern.

5G is more complex, as it uses a variety of frequencies, which makes it a potentially greater threat. The frequency of 4G is typically around 2 to 5 gigahertz (GHz), while 5G will be around 20 to 30 GHz, initially.

Eventually, it may go as high as 80 GHz, which will cause problems for people trying to remediate exposures because there are currently no inexpensive meters that can measure frequencies that high.

Based on the studies already done on previous generations of wireless, we know it’s harmful, and 5G is only going to make matters worse, as it will dramatically increase our exposures. 5G requires what essentially amounts to a mini cellphone tower outside every fifth or sixth house on every block.

We also have studies showing the impact of millimeter waves, which is what 5G is using, on insects, animals and plants, and those hazards are well-documented. So, it doesn’t just pose a problem for human health, but for the ecosystem as a whole.

Martin Pall, Ph.D., wrote an excellent paper explaining how EMFs affect your voltage gated calcium channels (VGCCs) — channels in the outer plasma membrane of your cells. Each VGCC has a voltage sensor, a structure that detects electrical changes across the plasma membrane and opens the channel. EMFs work through the voltage sensor to activate the channel and radically increase intracellular calcium levels into dangerous ranges.

Similar channels are found in most biological life, including animals, insects, plants and trees. So, flooding the planet with these frequencies will undoubtedly have serious biological consequences across the ecosystem. As such, it’s an existential threat to humanity.

One biological consequence is arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat). Other potential consequences include autism and Alzheimer’s. Heart and neurological problems top the list because your heart and brain have the greatest density of VGCCs. Men’s testes also have a very high density of VGCCs and, indeed, we have evidence showing EMFs increase men’s risk of infertility.

Everything points to these frequencies being a prescription for biological disaster, and between skyrocketing autism, Alzheimer’s and infertility rates, how can a society be sustained? It can’t. It will be extinguished.

We Don’t Need Wireless 5G

In reality, we can still get the bandwidth of 5G without 5G wireless. The alternative would be to deploy fiber optic cable. It’s faster, safer and less expensive.

Unfortunately, the money originally set aside to implement nationwide fiber optics was rerouted and illegally used to build the wireless infrastructure instead. This is why a group called The Irregulators5 are now suing the FCC to put a stop to the illegal subsidy to the wireless industry.

Wireline customers paid for an upgrade to fast and safe fiber optic wiring across the nation, but now we’re getting harmful 5G wireless instead. As explained in “The War Against 5G Heats Up” (hyperlinked above), this lawsuit has the potential to alter the telecommunications industry from the ground up, and may be the “weapon” we need to halt to the 5G rollout in the U.S.

The Importance of EMF Avoidance to Protect Your NAD+ Level

Along with practical remediation strategies, “EMF*D” also covers things you can do to protect yourself on a biochemical level. A perfect storm of DNA and cellular protein and membrane destruction is created when you aren’t burning fat for fuel (which creates excess superoxide) and then get exposed to EMFs.

This causes a radical increase in nitric oxide release that nearly instantaneously combines with superoxide to create enormous levels of peroxynitrate, which triggers a cascade of destructive events to your cellular and mitochondrial DNA, membranes and proteins.

Although all biologic damage is of concern, it is the DNA strand breaks that are most concerning as they will lead to a radical increase in inflammation and virtually all degenerative diseases.

The good news is your body has the ability to repair this damaged DNA with a family of enzymes called poly ADP ribose polymerase or PARP It is a very effective repair system and works wonderfully to repair the damage as long as it has enough fuel in the form of NAD+.

The bad news is many of us are running low on this fuel. When excess peroxynitrate activates PARP to repair the DNA damage, it consumes NAD+, and if you run out, you can’t repair the damage. This appears to be a central cause for most of the diseases we now see in the modern world.

Optimizing your NAD+ levels may be the single most important strategy for improving your mitochondrial health. The first step is to reduce NAD+ consumption by the correct diet (low in processed foods and net carbohydrates and higher in healthy fats), along with EMF avoidance, as recent research shows NAD+ levels dramatically drop when exposed to EMFs.

Time restricted eating is also very helpful, as is exercise, both of which are powerful, inexpensive and safe ways to boost your NAD+ level.

Helpful Strategies to Limit EMF Damage

In “EMF*D” I also cover the Nrf2 pathway and the importance of minerals such as magnesium to limit the biological damage caused by EMFs. As explained in this interview, upregulating your Nrf2 pathway activates genes that have powerful antioxidant effects, thus helping protect against EMF damage, while magnesium — which is a natural calcium channel blocker — helps reduce the effects of EMF on your VGCCs.

On a side note, molecular hydrogen tablets are an excellent source of ionic elemental magnesium. Each tablet provides about 80 milligrams of ionic elemental magnesium.

Addressing EMF Pollution — A 21st Century Health Imperative

There’s no doubt in my mind that EMF exposure is an important lifestyle component that needs to be addressed if you’re concerned about your health, which is why I spent three years writing “EMF*D.”

My aim was to create a comprehensive and informative guide, detailing not only the risks, but also what you can do to mitigate unavoidable exposures. To get you started, see the tips listed in my previous article, “Top 19 Tips to Reduce Your EMF Exposure.”

If you know or suspect you might already be developing a sensitivity to EMFs (full-blown hypersensitivity can often strike seemingly overnight), mitigating your exposures will be particularly paramount. Many sufferers become obsessed with finding solutions, as the effects can be severely crippling. My book can be a valuable resource in your quest for relief.

The EMF Experts website6 also lists EMF groups worldwide, to which you can turn with questions, concerns and support, and EMFsafehome.com7 lists a number of publications where you can learn more about the dangers of EMFs.

Should you need help remediating your home, consider hiring a trained building biologist to get it done right. A listing can be found on the International Institute for Building-Biology & Ecology’s website.8

Brian Hoyer, a leading EMF expert9 and a primary consultant for “EMF*D” also has a company called Shielded Healing that can provide a thorough analysis of the EMF exposure in your home, and help you devise a remediation plan. You can listen to our excellent three-hour interview for more information, featured in “Your EMF Questions Answered Part 1” and “Your EMF Questions Answered Part 2.”

Daily Coronavirus Infections, Death and Recovery Numbers

Daily graphical and numerical reports of infections, deaths and recovery, total and by country: www.corona.help
For Australia, go to www.corona.help/country/australia
World Health Organisation daily statistics: www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports

Australia 30th March 10:53 am Central time: 4,163 infected, 17 dead (almost all elderly in Nursing Homes with other existing medical conditions, and probably deficient in Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Magnesium, Zinc, Iodine and Selenium), Recovered: 244, Active Cases: 3,902.
NOTE: The infected figure quoted is misleading, as we must subtract the recovered figure (and the deaths) to get the active cases figure. Given that many people who recovered do not get tested again because of the disappearance of symptoms and the shortage of test kits, they are not counted as recovered, so the active figure may be significantly less, but many infected patients with no or few symptoms may refuse to get tested as they are probably already in isolation anyway, so the active figure may be higher.
Due to the inaccuracy of the testing, is is possible that only half of those tested positive actually have the virus. In spite of these variances, the figures advertised do give some indication of how fast the virus is spreading.

Australian Death Rate

The Australian death rate is less than half of one percent, compared with 4.5% world-wide, so Australia is doing well so far in comparison, but if the infection ramps up exponentially, there will be nowhere near enough ventilators to treat very sick patients, and doctors will have to make decisions who gets a ventilator, which means lives and who dies.

World infections: 722,631, Deaths: 33,964, Recovered: 151,261

We will not know how well the isolating and social distancing is working for another week or two when daily increases should significantly slow down.

Now that borders are closed and many people are isolated, in theory the virus could be halted in 2 to 4 weeks as most people will recover and new infections will be rare and more easily contained.

Australia is now 20th on the list sorted in total infections order, down from 18th yesterday. The lower on the list, the better we are controlling the virus compared to other countries. The order changes daily.

What is Coronavirus?

Coronaviruses are a family of viruses containing over a hundred different strains, seven of which cause the common cold. Some of these viruses exist naturally within the human virome, and never express themselves pathogenically, but will potentially cause false positives through the many different COVID-19 testing methods.
This group of viruses have been around for a long time, first discovered in 1937 in bird populations. In the 1960’s found in humans and normally responsible for the common cold. They can be zoonotic (transferred back and forth between animals and humans) and cause diseases in mammals and birds. Sometimes these viruses mutate, often coming from bats, snakes, pigs (swine flu) or other animals. Other mutated versions of Coronavirus have been SARS and MERS.
This virus, originating in Wuhan, China, now named SARS-CoV-2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2), causes a disease, originally code-named Novel Coronavirus 2019 (nCoV-2019) but then re-named to COVID-19 that spreads more rapidly than SARS, MERS and Flu viruses, but causes death only in those whose immune system is compromised, mainly in those over 50 years old, mainly in the 80+ range, or those subject to air pollution (e.g. in Wuhang, the industrial area of China where air pollution is extreme) because COVID-19 affects the lungs.

COVID-19 is comparatively rare in the very young, partly because of less exposure years to pollution, and partly because the young generally have better immunity.

Viruses are very small, typically between 0.004 to 0.1 microns in size. The Coronavirus is about 0.125 microns, which is fairly large for a virus. The electron microscope image above shows the red “spikes” around the virome, giving a corona,  which gives this virus it’s name.

In humans, COVID-19 causes respiratory infections which are typically mild, and the average person has little to worry about, as most symptoms vary from nothing at all, to a mild condition similar to a common cold. The common cold is a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract. Over 200 viral types are associated with colds, including Rhinovirus (a type of picornavirus with 99 known serotypes), Human Coronavirus, Influenza viruses, Adenoviruses, human respiratory syncytial virus (Orthopneumovirus), Enteroviruses other than Rhinoviruses, human Parainfluenza viruses, and human Metapneumovirus.

Past outbreaks of SARS, originating in China from Avian Flu (Bird Flu), another Coronavirus, and MERS, originating in the Middle East that sporadically jumps from camels to humans, spread to many other countries around the world and still cause problems in some areas, but the media is quiet about these as they are “old news”.
Coronavirus appears to be more easily spread than SARS or MERS, but death from Coronavirus is still significantly less than SARS or MERS. The “RS” in SARS and MERS refers to “Respiratory Syndrome” and deaths are caused by pneumonia-like infection of the lungs. Even the flu causes more deaths than the Coronavirus, but the media is quiet about this, as they want “fear headlines”. The Flu killed 40,000 Americans over their 2019-2020 Flu season, double the number of Coronavirus deaths world-wide. With the population of the USA at just 4% of the world, this makes the Flu 50 times more lethal than the Coronavirus, but the media is full of “Deadly Coronavirus” news.

Update 15th March: One report from National Science Review suggests that there are now 2 types of COVID-19.
Type L, the early version that is transmitted quickly, and the more recent type S which is not as contagious. This report is discredited by University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research so at this time there are more questions than answers about Coronavirus.

Man-Made Coronavirus?

A study by 5 Greek scientists, published 27th January 2020, examined the genetic relationships of COVID-2019 and found:
“the new coronavirus provides a new lineage for almost half of its genome, with no close genetic relationships to other viruses within the subgenus of sarbecovirus,” and has an unusual middle segment never seen before in any Coronavirus concluding that it could not have “jumped” from a bat or other animal to humans. Reports indicate that there are sections of the AIDS/HIV virus and the Influenza virus contained in COVID-19, confirmed by the fact that doctors in China, France and now Australia have been using AIDS medications to treat Coronavirus.
The Chinese have tested every animal, dead or alive in the Wuhan Fish Market and every test came back negative for Coronavirus.
This means that we are dealing with a brand new type of “man-made” coronavirus. The scientists rejected the original hypothesis that the virus originated from random natural mutations between different Coronaviruses.
Coincidence: Research on a Coronavirus vaccine started 5 years ago?
Coincidence: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation forecast a Coronavirus pandemic before the pandemic existed.
Coincidence: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation co-hosted a pandemic exercise in late 2019 that simulated a global Coronavirus outbreak.
Coincidence: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation also fund the group who owns the patent to the deadly virus and were working on a vaccine to solve the predicted crisis.
Ccoincidence: There is a virus research laboratory in Wuhan, China – the only site in China sanctioned by WHO (World Health Organisation) that is capable of working with deadly viruses in the country, and is linked to China’s biological weapons program, which in the past has developed modified Influenza viruses as part of it’s Chemical Warfare program. As far back as 2012 the Chinese were developing deadly Coronaviruses, which may possibly be the “Bird Flu” that caused an epidemic in 2013. The USA was also conducting virus research about the same time, until all research of this nature was deemed to be too dangerous, and was prohibited in the USA, but of course, not in China.

This article may or may not remain on this site because Governments fear that releasing this information may make the World wide idiotic panic even worse, and my Google statistics are dropping rapidly daily as they are censoring this type of information. I believe in truth at any cost, something we rarely get from the “fake news” we see on television daily.

How does COVID-19 infect the body?

There are about 40 to 50 trillion cells in the human body, plus another 100 trillion or so bacteria and other cells.
Every cell has a cell membrane on the outside, a nucleus containing our DNA, and our mitochondria in between.
The cell membrane is a complex structure. It allows nutrients to enter and feed the cell, it allows waste products to exit the cell, it controls the amount of water in the ell, and it keeps unwanted visitors out, like viruses. For a virus to enter the cell, it requires some weakness in the membrane, which happens when we have poor immunity. When the virus enters the cell, it takes it over and replicates itself. If the virus cannot find a host (one of our cells) it dies.
Cells with important attributes in the membrane, such as high pH (alkalinity), Zinc, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Magnesium and other Vitamins and minerals, are generally impervious to foreign  invaders.
This is why people with a diet of processed foods, junk foods that are deficient in all of the things we need, are the ones who will suffer most or even die when they get hit with a virus.
Boosting the immune system will help people recover from COVID-19, but having a healthy immune system will help defeat the virus before it gets a foothold.

What Causes Coronavirus Deaths?

  1. Immune system
    Only those people with poor immune systems and other medical conditions are dying. This is common among older people, because their prescribed medication makes it worse, other medical conditions make it worse, and their uptake of Vitamin D is worse, and worse again because most are taking statin drugs. Rarely, a slightly younger person dies, but invariably when their immune system is compromised, their diet is poor, they live in a polluted area, and have other existing medical conditions (along with dangerous medications that often reduce immunity).
    So, age does not increase risk.
    Lack of immunity increases risk.

    This can be prevented by supplements of Vitamins C and D, Selenium, etc that can bring their immunity up to reasonable levels. Almost all seniors are on statin medication that damages Vitamin D levels, and locking them up in a Nursing Home ensures they will get no Vitamin D from the sun.
  2. Diet
    Unhealthy diets cause 11 million deaths every year, more than tobacco and high blood pressure deaths combined. Bad diets reduce immunity, making people more susceptible to all disease including Coronavirus, cancer, cardiovascular, Alzheimer’s, etc.
    Always eat fresh, organic food, preferable grown locally, to add decades of healthy living.
  3. Toxins
    Modern processed food is full of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, hormones, additives and often radioactive particles.
    In China, there are no restrictions or monitoring of toxins in agriculture, so any food products originating in China are not recommended to be consumed.

The moral of this story:
If we eat junk food, ignore a healthy lifestyle, ignore health supplements, suffer chronic stress, we will DIE, if not from the virus, then from the Flu (50 times more deadly), cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s or any other “modern” diseases that almost never existed a hundred years ago.
If we expect a miracle vaccination to cure the virus from the Big Drug Companies, that is a myth, and most people DIE by that myth.

The 5G Connection

Is it a coincidence that recently 130,000 5G antennas were installed in Wuhan city, also large 5G installations were installed in Iran and in Northern Italy, and these are the three places where Coronavirus has spread fastest and caused the most deaths? The cruise ship Diamond Princess that held passengers in their cabins for weeks because of a Coronavirus outbreak was also recently fitted with a 5G installation ship-wide. Of course, this is not proof, but it is well-known that the extremely high frequency radiation from 5G damages DNA and reduces immunity, and although 5G has some technical benefits, the cost to the human race is high. Scientific studies on 5G prove the danger, but telecommunications companies ignore the risk and continue the 5G rollout.

Coronavirus Vaccination?

Doctors are only looking for a new vaccine, overlooking proven natural therapies that build immunity to all disease!
Vaccines can save people, but also kill people. The reported average is one death per 1 million people injected with any vaccine, however most go unreported because the deaths are normally reported as:

  • Some organ failure (caused by the vaccine)
  • Some variation of a disease that was caused by the vaccine
  • The vaccine caused reduced immunity

So if every person in the world was vaccinated (an impossibility) then using reported statistics, at least 7,000 people would be reportedly killed by the vaccine, and probably at least 10 times that number.
So health officials must weigh up how many can be saved by a vaccine versus how many would be killed by the vaccine.
Unfortunately, doctors ignore the natural therapies which are proven to destroy viruses and without the dangerous side-effects of vaccines and prescription medication.

Why are the big drug companies intent on discrediting all of the natural therapies and concentrating on vaccinations?
Because they make a fortune on vaccinations, and are protected from law suits when the vaccination harms or kills someone!

Coronavirus Test Kits

The words of the famous Mike Adams:
“The test kits are a joke, producing 50% – 70% false negatives, which means people who have the Coronavirus are falsely confirmed to be virus-free.”

In addition, there are many false positives, and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) admit that the test kits do not always work properly. The USA supplies the test kits for most of the world, but Australia has their own, developed in South Australia by SA Pathology, which give results much faster. Accuracy remains to be seen.
Because there are so many different strains of the Coronavirus, including about 7 strains responsible for the Common Cold, Testing often reveals an “indeterminate result” but the testing technician must give a positive or negative result and nothing in-between, so to be on the “safe side” all indeterminate tests are classified as positive for COVID-19.
In addition, humans have a natural virome (billions of friendly and helpful viruses)  that contain Coronaviruses, some more or less than others, which sit happily in the body doing no harm, but the tests can give a false positive again when encountering this virus.

Medical Treatment

Standard treatment in Western countries is not always correct, sometimes completely wrong and ineffective.
Anti-viral medications have had some degree of success, but can have significant side-effects.
Many doctors in China, France, Italy, Spain and more recently in the USA, are using drugs “off-label” (i.e. not approved for use for COVID-19) such as chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, lopinavir-ritonavir, favipiravir, remdesivir, ribavirin, interferon, convalescent plasma, steroids, and anti–IL-6 inhibitors, based on either their in vitro antiviral or anti-inflammatory properties.

The Malaria drugs Hydroxychloroquine brand name Plaquenil, and Chloroquine are generic drugs used to treat lupus, arthritis and malaria, and are relatively safe, with the main side effect being stomach irritation, though they can cause echocardiogram and vision changes (what? heart and eye problems are safe?). Hydroxychloroquine has been found useful as a preventive rather than a cure by Chinese doctors, but will moderate symptoms if administered to a sick person.

Australian doctors announced on 21st March that a trial is starting on a combination of an AIDS anti-viral drug Kaletra (a mixture of anti-HIV medications) combined with Hydroxychloroquine. This combination has had better success in-vitro when combined, much better than each individually, but we will see what happens in real people.

French doctors have conducted a successful study with a combination of Hydroxychloroquine and the antibiotic azithromycin (azithromycin is used to prevent bacterial pneumonia). This is surprising, since antibiotics generally reduce immunity, the benefit is probably due to reduced bacterial complications in the lungs that are damaged by the COVID-19 virus.

Another study is under way using Remdesivir, a drug originally intended for treating the Ebola virus.

In Australia, symptoms have been very mild, and patients have recovered with “only the use of Paracetamol” (Acetaminophen in the USA). What did these doctors learn at medical school?
How could they forget the basic rule by the ancient Greek physician Parmenides about 2,500 years ago: “Give me the power to create a fever and I can cure any disease.”
With the world-wide introduction of Aspirin, the Spanish Flu killed up to 50 million people, but most would have survived if they had NOT taken Aspirin, which lowers body temperature. Paracetamol also lowers body temperature, but fever is the basic method by which the body defeats disease, so removing the fever only exacerbates the disease.
Apart from reducing fever, Paracetamol destroys L-Glutathione, the body’s “Master Antioxidant” which is the most important thing we need to defeat disease, and Paracetamol damages the liver (many people on the liver transplant waiting list are there because of Paracetamol overdose).
In Australia, doctors still recommend Paracetamol (Acetaminophen or Tylenol in the USA) for every COVID-19 patient, which increases risk of sickness, liver damage and death!

I think more promising is convalescent plasma treatment.
A sick person is given a transfusion of blood plasma from a patient who has recovered from the virus. This plasma contains antibodies that have already defeated the virus, and side-effects should be near zero in theory.

The benefits of IV (Intravenous) Vitamin C therapy have been known for a long time, but doctors are strangely reluctant to use it!  The Chinese are now using Vitamin C therapy, but Western doctors are still failing to use the most basic, inexpensive and effective tools available. Vitamin C supplements are effective to prevent or minimise COVID-19 but daily doses of over about 9,000 mg (or up to 20,000 mg in divided doses every 3 to 4 hours) can cause stomach upset, so for treating patients with severe symptoms, 50,000 mg or more should be administered by IV which by-passes the stomach, and has almost zero side-effects.
See the article about New York doctors achieving significant results with Vitamin C at only 1500 mg every 3 or 4 hours given by IV:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/breaking-news-covid-19-patients-getting-vitamin-c-therapy-in-n-y-hospitals

I receive the JAMA Network updates daily, which contains the latest medical info that doctors use to treat Coronavirus. No mention of any vitamin or any other alternative health medicine or supplement, and they even say NOT to use Chloroquine or Hydroxychloroquine even though they are effective. No wonder these doctors are watching patients die.

Can we get these drugs now?

In theory, yes, Hydroxychloroquine (also Chloroquine) is “off-label” but doctors in the USA can prescribe it. Unfortunately there are not enough supplies, as all available stockpiles are used in studies and treatment of desperately ill people.

Natural prevention for Coronavirus

All viruses have weaknesses that can be exploited in simple remedies that have been used for hundreds or thousands of years.
Sodium Bicarbonate
Viruses generally thrive in an acidic environment (low pH) but die in an alkaline environment (high pH).
Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda) is not only safer than yeast as a raising agent in baking products, it is the best and fastest way to increase pH (alkalinity) when taken internally, and/or used on the skin.
Dissolve completely half a teaspoon in half a glass of water and drink every 2 hours, or as directed by a physician.
Do not take more than 7 times in 24 hours, 3 times for those over 60.
Add a cup or more to a bath and soak. For skin wounds, mix a little water into Bicarb powder to make a paste and apply to the affected area. To treat Coronavirus (or Cancer or other serious disease) aim for a urine pH level of 8.0 for 10 days, take a week off then repeat for another 7 to 10 days. Repeat the cycle as long as required.

Vitamin D3
Vitamin D3 stimulates “innate immunity” to viruses and bacteria, at the same time moderating auto-immune conditions. Typical doses available in retail stores are about 1,000 IU and this is enough to stop rickets, but nowhere near enough to build immunity. I have taken 5,000 IU daily for 10 years and have never had a cold or flu in that time. More recently I have taken 10,000 IU 3 days a week. I also get as much sunshine as I can get (without turning pink) in the middle of the day from a clear blue sky to reap the many other benefits of sunshine.
Because Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin (actually not a true vitamin, but a Steroid Hormone) we do not need to take it every day. Some doctors give Vitamin D3 by IV as a monthly dose of 40,000 IU to 100,000 IU.
D3 Blood Tests:  Doctors say healthy D3 levels mean over 60 or 75 nmol/l (30 ng/ml), and if your results come in at over this threshold, the doctor will say you are fine.
However, true experts in this field say that truly optimum for a normal healthy person for immunity to disease, is between 125 and 175 nmol/L (50 – 70 ng/ml).
For those recovering from cancer or other serious disease, optimum should be 175 to 250 nmol/L (70 – 100 ng/ml).
NOTE: Because Vitamin D3 increases Calcium absorption, we should always take
Vitamin K2 MK7 that helps place Calcium into the bones and teeth where it belongs, and keep it out of the blood where it can form clots.

Vitamin C
Vitamin C powder is a cheap and effective way of improving immunity, also Liposomal Vitamin C that the body retains better. The Orthomolecular Medicine News Service says “The coronavirus pandemic can be dramatically slowed, or stopped, with the immediate widespread use of high doses of vitamin C. Physicians have demonstrated the powerful antiviral action of vitamin C for decades. There has been a lack of media coverage of this effective and successful approach against viruses in general, and Coronavirus in particular.”

Vitamin C is antiviral, antitoxin, antihistamine, anti-inflammatory, works as an antibiotic, even an antidepressant!

High doses of vitamin C, typically over 9,000 mg daily, can upset the stomach, but hospitals should be using the safe high doses given by IV (direct into the blood), usually doses from 20,000 mg to 50,000 mg or more, with proven success rates for serious Coronavirus cases.

NEWS Announcement: Chinese Government now recommends Vitamin C for Coronavirus treatment.

Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate
Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate Spray is a topical spray, used on the skin where it is absorbed directly into the bloodstream.
Also Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate Flakes can be used to soak in a bath.
This by-passes the digestive system, which can be a problem for high doses of magnesium taken orally that may cause loose bowel motions.
There are many different magnesium salts available, but Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate appears to work best for immunity to viral infections, as well as the traditional Magnesium benefits to Heart, Bones and over 280 biochemical reactions in the body. Most magnesium supplements will help, aim for 400mg per day, or use a cup of Epsom Salts in a bath for direct absorption through the skin.
Zinc
Zinc is essential for the immune system. Zinc is used up faster when we have an illness, so supplementation is essential. See more under the Diet heading.
Selenium
Selenium is an antioxidant that lowers oxidative stress in the body, reducing inflammation and improving immunity to viruses, bacteria and parasites.
At the same time, Selenium protects against heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and other “Modern” diseases.

Glutathione
Glutathione is the body’s “Master Antioxidant” but is used up by stress and bad diets.
Glutathione is also clobbered by Paracetamol (Panadol), also called Acetaminophen or Tylenol in the USA despite being advertised as “Safe and Effective”, and impacts liver health and substantially reduces immunity. The worst side-effect is reducing body temperature, when the best way of killing off any virus is to raise body temperature (or allow a natural fever when fighting infection).
Glutathione is not well absorbed, as much is lost in the digestive process, so the above supplement that is dissolved in the mouth gets straight into the blood through the mucous lining of the mouth.
An alternative is a precursor (building block) of Glutathione, NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) that will increase Glutathione levels. NAC is used in hospitals as a treatment for a Paracetamol overdose.

Iodine
Iodine has been used for centuries to treat infections and disease.
It is still one of the very few weapons to destroy viruses as well as bacteria, molds, yeasts, protozoa and more.
Iodine increases immunity, but in modern times, people are becoming more deficient in Iodine, because:

  • Chlorine in drinking water displaces iodine in the thyroid, causing thyroid problems
  • People are reducing salt intake, so getting less iodine

 

Dr. Brownstein from Detroit tested 7,000 patients and found 97% were deficient in Iodine.
Few researchers test for Iodine. If they did and treated those deficient with supplemental Iodine, there would be far fewer diseases in the world, and far fewer outbreaks of mutated viruses.
Lysine
Lysine is a natural amino acid, and studies have demonstrated that Lysine can reduce infection rates of the varicella zoster virus (VZV) Chicken Pox virus, so I recommend everyone take Lysine supplements. Only 1/4 teaspoon daily is cheap insurance for viral infections. Also helps prevent Shingles which is becoming an epidemic because of effects of the Varicella vaccine that reduces immunity to Shingles.
Quercetin
Quercetin has long been a valuable ingredient found in many foods such as Red Onions, Elderberries, Kale, Apples, Spinach, Red Grapes, Raw Black Plums and many more.
Already famous for health in Cancer, Cardiovascular, Kidney and other diseases, studies are now under way for the effect on Coronavirus which is already showing promising results.
See the study on Quercetin for Coronavirus: www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/breaking-news-can-quercetin-help-us-to-avoid-the-threat-of-coronavirus-infection

Gut
The gut is responsible for 80% of our immune system, so we must look after the 100 trillion friendly microbes, usually totaling about 2 kg of our body weight.
Of course, taking antibiotics destroys a large proportion of the friendly bacteria, compromising our immune system.
Antibiotics also have no effect on viruses, so antibiotics will only have a negative effect on any virus condition.
We must also avoid a “leaky gut” where imperfections in the gut lining allow raw food to directly enter the bloodstream, causing allergies.

Note that Vitamin C, Vitamin D3 and Magnesium work in a synergistic manner, that is, when combined, work better than each one work alone.
Diet
Healthy foods builds our immune system. Bad foods reduce our immunity.
Avoid processed foods, sugar, bad fats (margarine, canola oil) and anything with unpronounceable ingredients.
Always eat fresh, colorful fruits and vegetables. Buy organic and grass-fed meat when you can, use plant-based foods more than animal products.
Some immune-boosting foods include:
Citrus, berries of all kinds, broccoli, peppers all have Vitamin C.
Almonds and other nuts, seeds, leafy green vegetables, avocados all have Vitamin E.
Seafoods, cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds, lentils, chickpeas, eggs, grass-fed beef, Cacao or Cocoa, yogurt, kefir, dark chocolate, dairy (especially ricotta cheese), mushrooms, avocados, chicken are some of the best sources of Zinc which is essential for over 300 enzyme reactions in the body. Zinc is used up at a much higher rate if we have an illness, so supplementation should be considered if sick or if we cannot get enough through our diet.
Fish, flaxseed, walnuts have high levels of Omega 3.
Fermented foods, yogurt, kefir are high in Probiotics.

Herbs

Herbs are best known for increasing flavour in cooking, but many herbs have natural ability to fight viruses, bacteria and fungi. For a full description, see www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/can-herbal-medicines-fight-wuhan-coronavirus

What NOT to do

Do not take NSAIDS (Ibuprofen, Aspirin) or other anti-inflammatory drugs that impact immunity, as the body’s normal response to a pathogen is to increase fever and inflammation.
Normal body temperatures are 36 to 37 degrees C, and normally varies. Body temperature will usually be at its lowest just before dawn and highest in the afternoon, and will be higher after exercise. If fever goes over 40 degrees C (104 degrees Fahrenheit) in a child or adult, it can become dangerous, and may cause seizures at 106 degrees F, and potentially deadly at 108 degrees F. It can be reduced naturally by sitting in a bath of cool to lukewarm water and sponging the water over the body, and no side-effects! Note that infants have much less tolerance to fevers. See a doctor immediately.
Do NOT get a flu shot. The diet and supplements above will help with Coronavirus, the Flu, Colds and almost everything else. A study on the Coronavirus deaths in Italy show a 36% INCREASE in Coronavirus infections in those who have had the Flu shot. The Flu shot is known to be only slightly effective in preventing 2 or 3 strains of the Flu, but increases risk of contracting hundreds of other strains and probably almost all other viruses. Read more on this study:
www.leanmachine.net.au/healthblog/prestigious-vaccine-journal-flu-vaccine-increases-coronavirus-infection-risk-36
Do not touch your face, especially near eyes, nose, mouth and even ears. The average person touches their face 23 times every hour. Medical masks can help in stopping touching of mouth and nose. If no masks are available, a clean super-size handkerchief will help. Looking like a cowboy should not bother anyone unless you are walking into a bank…

Heat

I have already discussed the benefit of having a fever, but there are easy ways to create a fever if the body is not automatically doing it.

  1. Exercise heavily enough to sweat
  2. Use an infra-red Sauna. Infra-red heat penetrates deep into the body, increasing the white blood cells and immunity.

Hand Sanitisers

I rarely use hand sanitisers, only when there is no opportunity to wash hands, but I regularly wash hands because I get dirty a lot! Grime on hands can hide many unknown bacteria and viruses, so washing hands regularly is important. Hospitals have hand sanitisers at the entrance, but it is best to use these on the way out to protect against MRSA and other infections that we pick up in hospitals because of the over-use of antibiotics and sterilising agents. When we get home, forget the Sanitisers and wash hands in soap and hot water.

Commercial hand sanitisers have many problems:

  • They almost always have toxic ingredients such as Tricoslan that can cause cancer, hormonal imbalance and can increase absorption of BPA (Bisphenol A) that introduce excess synthetic estrogens
  • Most contain Phthalates and Parabens that damage the endocrine system, causing early onset puberty, obesity and cancer
  • They are generally only 99.7% effective, but washing hands in soap and water is 99.2% effective anyway
  • According to a 2013 FDA study, chemical-based anti-bacterial hand soaps/sanitisers have never been proven to be any more effective than washing with natural hand soap. The best soap is a non-toxic hand soap with natural ingredients like Eucalyptus Oil Soap
  • Soap effectively kills COVID-19 and most other viruses by dissolving the fatty membrane that holds the virus together, causing it to fall apart and is washed off under running water
  • We need good bacteria for a strong immune system, and grabbing a shopping trolley or doing some gardening is a good way to build the immune system
  • Sterile hands are a recipe for infection as we need the good bacteria to help defeat the bad bugs
  • Sanitisers are more effective against bacteria and may have limited effect against viruses
  • Intended to ward off bacterial infection, these products have backfired. Prolific use of sanitisers promotes bacteria becoming resistant such as MRSA
  • Sanitisers are associated with allergy development in young children
  • Sanitiser chemicals leach into the environment, ending up in our tap water

If you still want to use a sanitiser, here is just one of the many recipes available that has no toxic ingredients:
Homemade Hand Sanitiser

Instructions:

  1. Add 20 drops of tea tree oil, 5 drops of lavender oil, 5 drops of lemon oil, and 5 drops of sweet orange oil to the glass bottle.
  2. Gently swirl the oils together. Slowly pour witch hazel into the spray bottle until it is about 2/3 of the way full.
  3. Add aloe vera until the bottle is full. If desired, add a few drops of vitamin E oil; it extends the shelf life and adds antioxidants.
  4. Put the lid on the bottle and shake it to mix the ingredients. Label the bottle and store it in a cool, dry place for up to two months.
  5. Use it before touching surfaces or when it is not possible to wash hands with soap and water.

Sanitisers can be valuable only if there is no soap and water available.

Do Not Panic

Fear lowers our immunity and drives us to make irrational decisions.
For any healthy person, Coronavirus will be no worse than the common cold.
Good nutrition, clean air, clean water and some supplements above will either prevent infection or substantially alleviate symptoms. The only people who may die from Coronavirus are those with a compromised immune system, and if Coronavirus did not exist, the they would probably die from the flu, cancer, Alzheimer’s, vaccinations, cardiovascular events, or even the original Coronavirus or Rhinovirus (common cold) etc.

Other Infections

There are many conditions that are far worse than Coronavirus. 50 times more people die from the Flu than Coronavirus.
Hospitals all over the world are concerned with Candida Auris (C. Auris), a fungal yeast infection that is spreading and killing many people. Major anti-fungal medications do not work, and nearly half of all who contract it die within 3 months.
First found in Tokyo in 2009, it has spread across Asia and Europe, and to the USA in 2016.

Solutions for Candida Albicans may not work for Candida Auris, but will probably do no harm, and may help.

Addressing EMF Pollution — A 21st Century Health Imperative

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked image
January 22, 2020

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • The primary danger of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) — and what drives the processes of chronic disease — is the mitochondrial damage triggered by peroxynitrites
  • Peroxynitrites are potent reactive nitrogen species associated with systemic inflammation and mitochondrial dysfunction, and are thought to be a root cause for many of today’s chronic diseases
  • You cannot see, hear or smell EMF, and most do not feel it. Still, biological effects are taking place whether you’re able to sense it or not
  • The number of people reporting pathological hypersensitivity to EMFs is rising. Between 1994 and 2008, prevalence of electromagnetic hypersensitivity syndrome in Austria rose from 2% to 3.5%. In 2011, Taiwan reported an incidence rate of 13.3%
  • The possibility of large portions of the population being unable to work or live as free individuals due to incessant, elevated exposure to EMF is a very real threat to society as we know it. There are very few EMF-free zones left on the planet, and such zones will further shrink with the global implementation of 5G

Over the past decade, I’ve written many articles discussing the evidence of biological harm from nonionizing electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation.

While the wireless industry is built on the premise that the only type of radiation capable of causing harm is ionizing — X-rays being one example — researchers have for a long time warned that even nonionizing and non-heating radiation can jeopardize your health. This includes not only human health, but also that of plants and animals.

Over time, I became so convinced of the deleterious effects of EMF, I took three years to write “EMF*D,” which is slated to be released in February 2020. In it, I review the now overwhelming evidence showing EMFs are a hidden health hazard that simply cannot be ignored any longer, especially seeing how the rollout of 5G will exponentially increase exposures.

Scientists Now Understand How EMFs Impact Your Health

Over the years, I’ve interviewed several experts who have shared their in-depth knowledge about the poorly understood mechanisms behind EMF harm. Among them:

Martin Pall, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of biochemistry and basic medical sciences at Washington State University, has published research1,2,3,4 showing that the primary danger of EMFs — and what drives the processes of chronic disease — is the mitochondrial damage triggered by peroxynitrites, one of the most damaging types of reactive nitrogen species.

Low-frequency microwave radiation activates the voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) in the outer membrane of your cells, causing them to open, thus allowing an abnormal influx of calcium ions. This activates nitric oxide, which is a precursor for peroxynitrite.5

These potent reactive nitrogen species are associated with an increased level of systemic inflammation and mitochondrial dysfunction, and are thought to be a root cause for many of today’s chronic diseases.

For an in-depth understanding of peroxynitrites and the harm they inflict, see “Nitric Oxide and Peroxynitrite in Health and Disease”6 by Dr. Pal Pacher, Joseph Beckman and Dr. Lucas Liaudet. It’s one of the best reviews I’ve ever read and free to download.

One of its most significant downsides of peroxynitrite is that it damages DNA. While your body has the capacity to repair that damage through a family of enzymes collectively known as poly ADP ribose polymerases (PARP), PARP require NAD+ for fuel, and when they run out of NAD+ they stop repairing your DNA, which can lead to premature cell death.

Dr. Sam Milham, a physician and epidemiologist, wrote the book, “Dirty Electricity: Electrification and the Diseases of Civilization.” In his interview, he explains the biological mechanisms of high-frequency electric transients (electromagnetic interference patterns), and details some of the lesser-known household sources of this “dirty electricity.”

Magda Havas, Ph.D., associate professor at Trent University in Canada, has written research including the effects dirty electricity can have on children’s behavior, and helpful remediation techniques.

EMF Pollution Is Likely Taking a Hidden Toll on Your Health

The problem with EMF radiation is that you cannot see it, hear it or smell it, and most do not feel it. Still, researchers assure us that biological effects are taking place whether you’re able to sense it or not. For most, it’s simply a matter of time and overall exposure load.

Here, it’s important to realize that we’re not just talking about radiation from your cellphone. The electromagnetic frequencies emitted from your Wi-Fi router, computer, home appliances, all manner of wireless “smart” technology, and even the wiring inside your walls are all capable of inflicting serious biological harm to your body and mind. And with 5G, it’s bound to get far worse.

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome Is on the Rise

For some, the effects of EMFs are unmistakable and undeniable, and the number of people reporting pathological hypersensitivity to EMFs is rising. In 2008, an Austrian study7 noted that actual prevalence of electromagnetic hypersensitivity syndrome in Austria had risen by 1.5% since 1994, from 2% to 3.5%.

In 2006, Germany had an electrosensitivity incidence rate of 9%, and Taiwan reported an incidence rate of 13.3% in 2011.8 The RT documentary “Wi-Fi Refugees,” featured in “Documentary Explore Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome,” investigates the struggles reported by these “canaries in the coal mine.”

While symptoms may vary from one individual to another, commonly reported symptoms of electromagnetic hypersensitivity syndrome include:

  1. Skin itch/rash/flushing/burning and/or tingling — Many describe a “burning pins and needles” kind of pain, especially in the head and chest area
  2. Confusion/poor concentration and/or memory loss
  3. Fatigue and muscle weakness
  4. Headache
  5. Chest pain and heart problems

Other reported symptoms include:

Ear pain Panic attacks
Insomnia Seizures
Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) Feeling a vibration in the body
Paralysis Unrelenting dizziness

One 2015 study9 pointed out that electromagnetic hypersensitivity is becoming an increasing challenge to the medical profession, which has yet to fully understand its implications, let alone its remedies.

Still, the complaints of modern-day hypersensitivities match those reported in the 1970s and ’80s by those working with radio and radar equipment and cathode ray tube monitors, which tells us that this is not a brand-new phenomenon. According to the authors:10

“In population-based surveys, the prevalence of EHS has ranged from 1.5% in Sweden to 13.3% in Taiwan. Provocation studies on EMF have yielded different results, ranging from where people with EHS cannot discriminate between an active RF signal and placebo, to objectively observed changes following exposure in reactions of the pupil, changes in heart rhythm, damage to erythrocytes, and disturbed glucose metabolism in the brain.”

As early as 2005, the World Health Organization warned that people have “for some time” reported health problems attributed to EMF exposure, and that some are “so severely affected that they cease work and change their entire lifestyle.”11

The possibility of large portions of the population being unable to work or live as free individuals due to incessant, elevated exposure to EMF is a very real threat to society as we know it. The reality is that there are very few EMF-free zones left on the planet, and such zones will further shrink with the global implementation of 5G.

‘EMF*D’

I believe EMF exposure is one of the greatest challenges to public health facing us today. If we go back in time to the end of World War I, around 1918 or so, and use that timeframe as a baseline of EMF exposure among the general public, you come to the astonishing conclusion that EMF exposure has increased about 1 quintillion times over the past 100 years.

Knowing the impact EMFs can have, it’s completely irrational to assume that this radical increase won’t have adverse effects. My new book, “EMF*D,” is an attempt to inform you about the hidden harms of EMF and what you need to do to protect yourself and those you love. In it, you’ll learn:

  • How EMFs are impacting your body and mind
  • Where you can find them in your daily life
  • How they can cause disease and speed up aging
  • How to repair the damage done by EMFs at the cellular level
  • Practical strategies to protect yourself and your loved ones from EMFs

Brain Cancer Is Not the Only, Nor the Major, Concern

While a number of studies have shown that cellphone radiation can trigger brain cancer this is not the greatest cause for concern. Your brain does have a far greater density of VGCCs than other organs, but so does your nervous system and heart, as well as male testes.

As a result of the elevated density of VGCCs in these areas, EMFs are likely to contribute to neurological and neuropsychiatric problems,12 as well as heart and reproductive problems, including but not limited to cardiac arrhythmias, anxietydepressionautismAlzheimer’s and infertility13,14 and miscarriage15,16,17,18 — and these conditions are far more prevalent than brain cancer.

That said, studies have also linked radiofrequency radiation equivalent to that emitted by 2G and 3G cellphones to other forms of cancer, including heart tumors. This includes U.S. government-funded animal studies19 published in 2018 that were further corroborated by the Ramazzini Institute that same year.20

As early as 2011, the evidence was strong enough for the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the cancer research arm of the WHO, to declare cellphones a Group 2B “possible carcinogen.”21

I’ve already mentioned one of the primary mechanisms by which EMFs harm your biology — i.e., the creation of peroxynitrites, which are potent oxidant stressors — but EMFs also damage your health in other ways.

For example, the enzyme ATP synthase — which passes currents of protons into the mitochondrial intermembrane space, similar to current passing through a wire — powers the generation energy of the creation of ATP from ADP, using this flow of protons.

Magnetic fields can change the transparency of the flow of protons to the mitochondrial intermembrane space, thereby reducing the current. As a result, you get less ATP, which can have system wide consequences, from promoting chronic disease and infertility to lowering intelligence.

EMFs may also alter your microbiome, turning what might otherwise be beneficial microbes pathogenic or toxic. This too can have far-ranging health effects, since we now know your microbiome plays an important role in health.

5G Rollout Will Significantly Magnify Health Risks

Any and all health ramifications attributed to previous generations of wireless technologies will be exponentially magnified with the rollout of 5G, which is simply being added on top of the already existing wireless infrastructure. This 5th generation technology may also present additional health risks.

A main concern with 5G is that it relies primarily on the bandwidth of the millimeter wave (MMW), which is known to penetrate 1 to 2 millimeters of human skin tissue.22 There’s also evidence suggesting sweat ducts in human skin act as antennae when they come in contact with MMWs.23

Many can feel the impact of MMWs as a burning sensation and/or pain, which is precisely why it’s used in nonlethal crowd control weapons.24 MMW has also been linked to eye problems, suppressed immune function and altered heart rate variability (an indicator of stress) and arrhythmias.25

In 2015, more than 230 scientists engaged in the study of biological and health effects of nonionizing EMFs in 41 nations signed an international appeal to the United Nations, calling for protection from nonionizing EMF exposure due to evidence of health effects even at low levels.26

Two years later, more than 180 doctors and scientists from 35 countries signed a petition27 to enact a moratorium on the rollout of 5G due to the potential risks to wildlife and human health.

Protect Yourself From Excessive EMF

There’s no doubt in my mind that EMF exposure is an important lifestyle component that needs to be addressed if you’re concerned about your health, which is why I spent three years writing “EMF*D.”

My aim was to create a comprehensive and informative guide, detailing not only the risks, but also what you can do to mitigate unavoidable exposures. To get you started, see the tips listed in my previous article, “Top 19 Tips to Reduce Your EMF Exposure.”

If you know or suspect you might already be developing a sensitivity to EMFs (full-blown hypersensitivity can often strike seemingly overnight), mitigating your exposures will be particularly paramount. Many sufferers become obsessed with finding solutions, as the effects can be severely crippling. My book can be a valuable resource in your quest for relief.

The EMF Experts website28 also lists EMF groups worldwide, to which you can turn with questions, concerns and support, and EMFsafehome.com29 lists a number of publications where you can learn more about the dangers of EMFs.

Is the next generation of wireless the last? While industry says 5G is the promised land, concerned citizens say it’s an impending global catastrophe

Spend two minutes on any telecommunications website, and you’ll quickly discover (in blazing fast speed, if you’re lucky) that 5G is poised to save humanity from impending doom, while ushering us all into a symbiotic, utopian society.

Or so they’d like you to think.

Qualcomm, a global leader in technology innovation, claims that 5G, or fifth-generation wireless technology, “will elevate the mobile network to not only interconnect people, but also interconnect and control machines, objects, and devices.” With promises of 100% faster data rates, 10-year battery life, and network latency reduced to 1-10ms, industry’s expansive vision of a 5G world is seamless, boundless, and sci-fi chic. This pristinely sleek interconnected matrix will purportedly power a burgeoning digital economy, integrate humanity and artificial intelligence, and ultimately, transform our lives for the greater good.

It’s amazing that the next generation of wireless technology could hold these magical keys to unlock universal bliss, collective prosperity, and world peace. 4G certainly didn’t promise such riches. I guess we’ve come a long way in a single “G.”

But grandiose prophecies aside, just how pristine and sleek is our 5G reality?

Ericsson, a key player in setting the 5G requirements and standards for this new eco-system, forecasts by 2023, we will see 9 billion mobile subscriptions, 1 billion 5G subscriptions, 20 billion connected IoT devices; with 75% of all mobile data traffic dedicated to video, and 20% of the global population covered by 5G. But all of this requires a massive infrastructure buildout of what industry terms “small cells” to be installed on street lights, utility poles, building facades, bus stops, and trash cans in neighborhoods and cities around the world. The CTIA (Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association) projects that 80% of all future infrastructure deployments will be small cells, reaching 800,000 small cells in the U.S. by the year 2026 (there are 154,000 cell towers today).

At the local, state, and federal level, new legislation and new zoning laws aim to streamline the installation of these 5G “small cell” antennas in public rights-of-way. The FCC’s 5G Fast plan overrules community authority at almost every level, requiring cities and states to approve new 5G antennas within 60 or 90 days, while setting limits on the siting fees that localities may charge carriers. In response, the U.S. Conference of Mayors issued a statement strongly opposing the federal usurpation of local and state government property rights. Two dozen cities, including San Jose CA; Huntington Beach, CA; and Seattle, WA, have filed law suits against the FCC, over these controversial rules.

So how’s all this 5G romanticism really going down in cities and towns across the nation?

Miami: On the Frontlines of the Grotesque 5G Rollout

In Miami, Florida, the scene is less than ideal. According to a report in the Miami Herald, residents have been spotting unsightly and clunky three-foot long black cylinders and cables hanging from trees, haphazardly strapped to utility poles with caution tape, resting on front lawns, and sitting on sidewalks. With new concrete poles going up around the city; black splice cases strewn about on the ground or attached to trees; and stray wires and cables dangling from powerlines and out into public walkways, it appears to be a blundering state of disarray.

 

These random containers, along with nests of wires and cables, present more than just an aesthetic blight to the community. It’s really a question of safety. Does this half-installed equipment represent an electrical danger? Can residents be certain that these exposed wires are not yet live? What about the safety of children and animals at play? Or the potential for unsuspecting residents to trip and injure themselves on this obstacle course? Or ensuring accessible sidewalks for those in wheelchairs and walking baby strollers? And this is all toward the goal of … what exactly? Strapping on a VR visor for an immersive shopping experience at your favorite downtown retailer?

In a follow-up September 5, 2019 Miami Herald article, Miami-Dade Commissioner Eileen Higgins is quoted as saying, “It’s a 5G fiasco… Downtown is the epicenter of a land grab by the telecommunications companies… There’s no respect for residents, businesses, art in public places or our history… It’s a mess and it’s coming to your neighborhood next. Get in front of every building you can.”

On May 7, 2019, Miami county commissioners voted unanimously to permit AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and Crown Castle Fiber to attach small cell antennas to county property on public rights-of-way, including wood and metal poles, utility cables and streetlights. Their goal is to bring 5G wireless to Miami in time for Super Bowl LIV in February 2020.

An article in Miami Today cites, ‘Because they transmit at shorter distances than the larger traditional cell towers, small cells must be no more than 300 feet apart to work properly. That means many will have to be installed over the next 10 months to meet the Super Bowl deadline.” In order to accomplish this, the Miami Transportation and Public Works department has been working with the telecoms in “an ongoing process probably for about four years” to streamline and expedite the review processes.

Miami is not the only locale with augmented kick-off dreams. In September 2019, Verizon announced its new 5G network launch in NFL stadiums across the U.S., with 13 stadiums to be live by the start of the 2019-20 football season, including: Bank of America Stadium (Carolina Panthers), Empower Field at Mile High (Denver Broncos), CenturyLink Field (Seattle Seahawks), Ford Field (Detroit Lions), Gillette Stadium (New England Patriots), Hard Rock Stadium (Miami Dolphins), Lucas Oil Stadium (Indianapolis Colts), MetLife Stadium (New York Giants and New York Jets), M&T Bank Stadium (Baltimore Ravens), NRG Stadium (Houston Texans), Soldier Field (Chicago Bears), and U.S. Bank Stadium (Minnesota Vikings).

According to CNet, Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg called the project “a key moment in our partnership with the NFL.” But the NFL’s football fantasies are just one niche in the exponentially growing list of industries that will profit from 5G and IoT. No wonder Qualcomm cites 5G as a $12.3 trillion opportunity in economic growth.

But what about public health? Should caution and science be thrown to the wind simply so fans can interact with a life-size, digitized Tom Brady as he throws his 577th touchdown pass?

As such, citizens around the world have been protesting the 5G rollout, citing a mounting list of health and privacy concerns. With growing awareness of the health impacts of wireless telecommunication technologies and the neighborhood densification of small cells, communities are starting to organize, and policy makers are starting to take action. Many cities and towns across the United States have already issued resolutions and ordinances calling for further research in advance of new infrastructure deployment.

On April 3, 2019, the commissioners of Hallandale Beach, Florida passed a resolution urging the state legislature and federal government to initiate a study of the health effects of small cell towers built to accommodate 5G technology and to develop installation guidelines protecting the health and welfare of residents. This is the first such resolution passed in the state of Florida addressing 5G.

Carolina Lavayen, founder of Stop 5G Florida, worked with Commissioner Michele Lazarow once she noticed new cell towers were being installed in residential areas as well as city streets without public consent or notice to residents. Lavayen explains,

“We are being bombarded with electromagnetic frequencies and radiation that we cannot see with the naked eye. Already 4G is causing major biological havoc on all life including humans, animals, insects, trees and our crops. Man-made frequencies disturb our cells’ natural electrical communication system. The planned 5G world-wide wireless network is pushing this issue to a whole new level of saturation with cell towers approximately every 300 feet, and with everyone eventually upgrading to 5G-compatible devices. 5G is a wake-up call to take action: stand up for our basic human rights and learn how to best thrive in our ever-developing, telecom-controlled, electro-polluted ecosystem.”

In Marin County, California, several communities are actively engaged in encouraging elected officials to pass ordinances that protect cities and towns from the adverse effects of 5G technology and to help maintain local control and decision making. A safe technology activist in Marin explains,

“It’s important to build relationships with your local government. Find out who is in charge of decision making on this issue, whether that’s the mayor, staff, or the town council. Meet with them one-on-one. Talk to them about your concerns, and share that they can easily create strong legislation that is legally defensible, focused on many factors in addition to health, and they do not have to be afraid of the FCC. Their ability to maintain local control and represent the interests of the public is critical. Tell them that there are precedents and examples of protective ordinances in other communities and provide examples. Remind your elected officials that have taken an oath to uphold the U.S. and State Constitutions, and in doing so, protect the health, well-being, and privacy of the community. Ask them how they are going to protect you.”

Several state representatives have spoken out to demand the FCC provide evidence of safety, including Senator Richard Blumenthal (CT) and Representatives Anna G. Eshoo and Jackie Speier (CA), Thomas Suozzi (NY), and Peter A. DeFazio (OR). Americans for Responsible Technology has launched the 5G Crisis “to call on wireless companies (Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile) and their sub-contractors (Crown Castle, ExteNet Systems and other antenna installers) to suspend the deployment of small cell wireless antennas near places where people live, work and play until such time as their technology can be made safe for everyone.” Around the U.S., communities from Bethesda, Maryland, Long Island, New YorkAsheville, North Carolina, to San Diego, California, and Kauai, Hawaii have held protests to halt 5G.

Globally, international actions are also underway, with a spotlight thrown to Brussels, the first major city to halt the deployment of 5G due to health effects. As of September 2019, more than 240 scientists from 42 nations have signed The 5G Appeal which calls for a moratorium on the rollout of 5G. The Appeal asserts that, “5G will substantially increase exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) on top of the 2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, etc. for telecommunications already in place. RF-EMF has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment.” In addition, international protests have been held from Israel to SwitzerlandSpainItalyIreland, the UK and Australia.

While on the surface 5G appears to be a flashy new technology capable of rendering obsolete any vestiges of disconnection, inefficiency, and boredom, what nonetheless lurks beneath is a battleground between local versus federal governance, an epic corporate power grab, and a culture of surveillance capitalism. Add to this the overarching violation of human rights, along with blatant disregard for both public health and environmental protection… and sure, let’s pretend lightning-speed video streaming is tantamount to all existential concerns.

Before we get lost daydreaming about a fantastical 5G future, perhaps we should take a long hard look at the harsh reality of our flawed pre-5G present. The fifth generation of wireless technology hasn’t come to full fruition yet. The question is: should it?
