Children’s Exposure Guidelines to EMF Radiofrequencies Updated by ANSES*

Children’s Exposure Guidelines to EMF Radiofrequencies Updated by ANSES*

High Low Frequencies Effect on the body

By Catherine J. Frompovich

In France, there’s a governmental agency called ANSES that deals with health issues, e.g., food, environmental and occupational health safety, established July 1, 2010, incorporating and/or taking over two previous government agencies: the French Food Safety Agency (AFSSA) and the French Agency for Environmental and Occupational Health Safety (AFSSET). ANSES is the acronym for Administración Nacional de la Seguridad Social in the French language.

ANSES is an international player, which participates in European and international organizations projects plus the development of scientific cooperation with key partners abroad.

Besides its assessment of risks to human health from food and animal consumption, ANSES also is tasked with assessing medicinal products for human and veterinary use coordinated by the European Medicines Agency, which published a questionable assessment report in November 2015 regarding the adverse health events surrounding the HPV vaccines, which The Nordic Cochrane Centre challenged.

Rather recently (July 2016), ANSES issued the report “Exposure of children to radiofrequencies: a call for moderate and supervised use of wireless technologies,”… , which seems to be an update attempt on previous similar reports issued in 2013 and 2009 referenced here.

By David Dees

In reading the 2016 update, there doesn’t seem to be much of anything new added, in my opinion, and seemingly ANSES steers away from the WHO’s IARC’s classification of EMFs as a class 2B carcinogen.

In the 2013 update, ANSES wrote:

All the potential health effects of radiofrequencies, carcinogenic or not, were studied and their levels of evidence classified on the basis of an assessment method inspired by that of the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).

The findings of the risk assessment have not brought to light any proven health effects. Certain publications nonetheless mention a possible increase in the risk of cerebral tumours, in the long term, for heavy mobile phone users. The findings of this expert appraisal are therefore consistent with the classification of radiofrequencies proposed by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as “possibly carcinogenic” for heavy users of mobile phones. In addition, the expert appraisal nevertheless shows, with limited levels of evidence, different biological effects in humans or animals, some of which had already been reported in 2009: these can affect sleep, male fertility or cognitive performance.

The Agency also highlights the massive growth in applications of radiofrequencies in indoor or outdoor environments, leading to an increase in population exposure.

Therefore, to limit exposure to radiofrequencies, especially in the most vulnerable population groups, the Agency recommends:

for intensive adult mobile phone users (in talk mode): use of hands-free kits and more generally, for all users, favouring the purchase of phones with the lowest SAR[1] values;

reducing the exposure of children by encouraging only moderate use of mobile phones; continuing to improve characterisation of population exposure in outdoor and indoor environments through the use of measurement campaigns;

that the development of new mobile phone network infrastructures be subject to prior studies concerning the characterisation of exposures, and an in-depth study be conducted of the consequences of possibly multiplying the number of relay antennas in order to reduce levels of environmental exposure;

documenting the conditions pertaining at those existing installations causing the highest exposure of the public and investigating in what measure these exposures can be reduced by technical means.

that all common devices emitting electromagnetic fields intended for use near the body (DECT telephones, tablet computers, baby monitors, etc.) display the maximum level of exposure generated (SAR, for example), as is already the case for mobile phones.

Finally, in order to resolve the various uncertainties it identified when conducting this work, and in addition to the research projects already undertaken under the National Plan for Research on Environmental and Occupational Health, the Agency is also making a series of research recommendations. [CJF emphasis]

The question this writer feels compelled to ask is why there doesn’t seem to be a specified plan to address scientifically the issues of cancer-causing potentialities regarding EMFs emitted from wireless communication devices and SARs, which impact not only children but everyone, including animals and vegetation.

Instead, the 2016 ANSES update suggests “Possible effects on cognitive functions and well-being” and the fact that “Children exposed ever earlier to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields” and “The Agency’s recommendations” that state:

On the basis of the results of the expert appraisal, the Agency is recommending that the regulations be changed in order that:

  • all radio devices, and in particular those intended for children (tablet computers, baby monitors, connected toys, etc.), are subject to the same regulatory obligations, in terms of control of exposure levels and information to the public, as those governing mobile telephones;
  • the regulatory exposure limit values are enforced, regardless of the mobile transmitter devices used, according to reasonably foreseeable conditions of use (for example positioning in contact with the body).

It also seems necessary to

“reconsider the reference levels aiming to limit environmental exposure to electromagnetic radiofrequency fields, in order to ensure that the safety margins are large enough to protect the health and safety of the general population, and particularly of children;

reassess the relevance of the specific absorption rate (SAR) used to establish exposure limit _ values for individuals, for the purposes of protection against the known and proven health _ effects (thermal effects) of radiofrequencies, and develop a representative indicator of the actual exposure of mobile telephone users, regardless of the conditions of use: signal used, good or bad reception, method of use (voice calls, loading data, etc.).  [CJF emphasis]

Seems necessary? What a puny remark, which vested interests will not take seriously nor implement measures to generate specific SARs. Because, if they did, the results would put them out of business, I proffer. The excessive EMFs coming off many smart appliances, especially the newly rolled out AMI Smart Meters, which are the linchpin of global surveillance, will enable the Internet of Things not only to control our lives, but become BIG BROTHER literally!

Regarding SAR (specific absorption rate), I think it is absolutely imperative that every public utility commission in every one of the 50 states and territories of the USA establish immediately, if not sooner, uniform SARs and mandate that the technology industries meet those criteria for retrofitting current gadgets, plus re-engineering new ones in production or on drawing boards.

Furthermore, the sixty-year-old “known and proven” thermal effects from early radar studies are very outdated. However, they are effective since that’s what public utility companies and PUCs trot out as microwaves being ‘safe’. Those sixty-year-old studies do not include non-thermal adverse health effects, which are the ‘new kids on the block’ in current EMF research no one in the microwave industries wants to recognize because if they did, they probably would be doing business a heck of a lot differently, or with much less gusto regarding implementing AMI Smart Meters.

However, if states public utility commissions don’t recognize RF/EMF non-thermal adverse effects soon and make necessary changes within their utility regulations, I can foresee massive lawsuits being filed against utility companies, AMI Smart Meter manufacturers, and state public utility commissions—including commission members—charging failure to protect public health and the deliberate neglect of fiduciary responsibilities in view of established non-thermal radiation science and academic literature.

Consumers really don’t understand the unforeseen dynamics of EMFs coming off all the ‘smart’ technology we have become so enthralled with. However, children may be paying the highest price of all because of their attraction to and fascination with such gadgets.

There are serious repercussions the ANSES 2016 report skirted around in the second to last paragraph of its report:

“the expert appraisal identified several studies highlighting an association between intensive and inadequate use of mobile telephones by young people and mental health problems (risk behaviour, depression, suicidal thoughts, etc.). [CJF emphasis]

Cell phone exposures are one thing; they can be turned off! However, AMI Smart Meters cannot be turned off; they send dirty electricity thousand-fold over 60 Hz house wiring that radiates EMFs into the home environment effectively creating an ‘operating microwave oven-like’ atmosphere 24/7/365.

Now can you understand why tech companies don’t want to pursue SAR research and why states public utility commissions ought to be pushing the panic button about lawsuits for industry and themselves?

Hundreds of Soldiers Resign from German Army*

Hundreds of Soldiers Resign from German Army*

Over 400 German soldiers have filed applications for resignation from the country’s armed forces, Rheinische Post reported.

Most applications have been approved. Though, the exiting soldiers have to pay back their education expenses to the state.

From the middle of 2014 to present, 469 soldiers, including 62 women, have filed applications to suspend their military service.

According to the newspaper, 67 % of the applications were accepted, 25% were disapproved. The remaining applications were considered unlawful or withdrawn by the applicants themselves.

“When the risk in the profession of a soldier — to kill or be killed in specific combat situations — is perceived as a fundamental experience for the first time…only then it leads to such consequences,” German political expert Katrin Kunert said, cited by DW.

Earlier, Reihnische Post also reported that the number of German soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress disorders was on the rise. In 2015, the figure increased by 15% compared to the previous year, from 204 to 235 patients.

The resignations are especially damaging in the case of officers or candidates for officers. All in all, 153 resignations were filed by German officers who now will have to reimburse the cost of their studies, totalling 5.6 million euro.

On a case by case basis, each officer will have to pay the German government between 1,200 to 69,000 euros.

Currently, the German army consists of 167,000 soldiers, which is lower than the initial target of 170,000. As previously reported, the head of the German Ministry of Defence Ursula von der Leyer is planning to expand the German armed forces by 7,000 before 2017.

DNC Collapsing Amid Resignations in WikiLeaks Aftermath*

DNC Collapsing Amid Resignations in WikiLeaks Aftermath*

By Aaron Kesel

Right before the rigged Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wassmerman Schultz resigned after Wikileaks exposed the DNC’s bias towards Hillary Clinton.

Now there is a rash of others following in Debbie’s footsteps. It’s damage control time at the DNC because it is collapsing.

DNC announces CEO Amy Dacey, CFO Brad Marshall and communications director Luis Miranda are leaving in wake of WikiLeaks hack.

A week before the DNC, Wikileaks leaked 20,000 DNC Emails proving the DNC’s bias towards Hillary Clinton and Against Senator Bernie Sanders. The bloody aftermath of that is hitting the DNC now. Predictably, Debbie Wasserman Shultz fell on the sword and was hired by the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Now, DNC CEO Amy Dacey, CFO Brad Marshall, and Communications Director Luis Miranda are leaving the DNC.

The employees are officially “resigning,” but likely were fired for their behaviour or comments in the leaked emails, like calling Latino voter outreach “Taco Bowl Engagement.”

Marshall wrote one email questioning Bernie Sanders’ Jewish faith and suggesting he could be portrayed as an atheist.

Beyond the rude and possibly racist comments, the DNC hack also exposed collusion with the media. The DNC asked media networks to not air any content that opposed Hillary Clinton and to broadcast Anti-Sanders content.

There was also outright bribery, as  high end donors sought positions on federal boards and commissions in violation of federal law.

“The disclosed DNC emails sure look like the potential Clinton Administration has intertwined the appointments to federal government boards and commissions with the political and fund raising operations of the Democratic Party,” said Ken Boehm, chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group told Daily Caller.

The DNC failed to do its job ethically and unbiased when they plotted against their own candidate Senator Bernie Sanders in favour of Hillary Clinton. The DNC also failed to investigate dozens of claims of election fraud all in favour of their candidate of choice Hillary Clinton.

Despite the resignations, will anyone be held accountable for the treasonous anti-democratic corruption that took place at the DNC? Or will Hillary Clinton hire them all onto her campaign like she did with Debbie Wasserman Shultz, further showing she has no morals and ethics?

But you can be sure that this isn’t over and won’t be the last resignation to come out of the DNC. I can think of a few more people they should fire by going through Wikileaks document dump and the DNC should probably think about firing its IT department since none of this would have been happened without those meddling hackers and their crappy computers. Unless of course, it was an insider that leaked the emails

Syrian Children Fight Back Against Carpet Bombing*

The Syrian city of Aleppo has been under siege since last month, when the Syrian regime cut off all supply lines to rebel fighters and citizens. However, a co-ordinated counter-offensive by rebel factions, apparently planned for months, was reported on 2 Aug. It is being called the Battle of Aleppo, and a “major pivot point” in the Syrian conflict.

According to UNICEF, there are 2.5 million child refugees who have fled Syria, and 6m affected who remain in the country. It’s estimated that 250,000 people are currently under siege in rebel-held cities. And of those children who remain in besieged cities, some have taken up a new method of protecting themselves and their families.

Airstrikes by the Syrian government continue to be carried out on rebel strongholds, joined by Russian fighters who are intensifying their bombing campaign. Rebels continue to fight back, attempting to regain control of ground and/or access to vital supplies. As a result of the escalating conflict, such cities have been largely destroyed, and Aleppo is no exception.

Doing what they can to protect themselves, Syrian children are burning tyres in Aleppo’s city streets in an effort to forcibly create no-fly-zones for Russian and government jets. The thick black smoke obscures the view of pilots, and is apparently effective at preventing them from carrying out bombing.

Journalist Rami Jarrah told the BBC:

“It’s causing confusion for the jets and a diversion for the offensive on the ground that aims to break the siege.

Everyone is doing it but to participate in the resistance this is really the only thing the children can do.”

One man has created a video ‘apologising’ to environmentalists for the burning tyres’ effect on the ozone layer. He explains and apologises for the situation, and then declares:

“We’re very sorry please forgive us, but you have all turned your backs on the Syrian people.”

The freedom to disengage from political activism is a privilege. Most of the rest of the world can’t disengage – they’re on the frontlines of politics, everyday, whether they like it or not, and for many it’s literally a life or death decision. Political apathy may be the result of understandable frustration. But not acting contributes to the political status quo.

Children in Syria, participating in the only safe way that they can, are demonstrating that by the time someone is forced to choose to ‘participate’ in politics, it’s often too late.

Granted, the limited acts we can take might not ‘achieve’ anything immediate, except taking a stand and making our politics visible. But enough people participating creates mass movement, and mass movements are required to change the status quo. A person refusing to participate ‘because activism is ineffective’, ensures that person is ineffective.

Those of us who can, but won’t, participate must ask ourselves if our decision is the right one. Because over and above the moral imperative to participate, all action and inaction will contribute to the creation of our future, whatever it might be.

Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, claimed during the Democratic National Convention (DNC) that, “We have more material related to the Hillary Clinton campaign.”

Staying true to their word, WikiLeaks, with one simple tweet, dropped another bomb on the Clinton campaign – one so damaging it will almost surely be ignored by the mainstream media.

The latest revelation by the whistleblower organization reveals Hillary Clinton was a director of, and received over $100,000 from, French industrial giant Lafarge, which was recently exposed as secretly sponsoring the Islamic State for profit.

These latest revelations expose the deep relationship between Hillary Clinton and Lafarge — a company proven to be working with and funding ISIS. The information was released one week after a statement made by Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, during an interview with Democracy Now, implicated Clinton as being connected to arming terrorists.

“Hillary’s hacked emails include info on Hillary arming jihadists,” Assange said.

According to an investigative report in The Canary by respected academic and journalist Nafeez Ahmed:

“Documents obtained by several journalistic investigations reveal that Lafarge has paid taxes to the terror group to operate its cement plant in Syria, and even bought Isis oil for years…

Lafarge also has close ties to Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Apart from being a regular donor to the Clinton Foundation, Clinton herself was a director of Lafarge in the early 1990s, and did legal work for the firm in the 1980s. During her connection to Lafarge, the firm was implicated in facilitating a CIA-backed covert arms export network to Saddam Hussein.

Among its earliest benefactors was former First Lady and current presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton. From 1990 to 1992, Clinton served on Lafarge’s Board of Directors. Under her tenure, Lafarge’s Ohio subsidiary was caught burning hazardous waste to fuel cement plants. Clinton defended the decision at the time.

Then just before her husband, Bill Clinton, was elected president in 1992, Lafarge was fined $1.8 million by the Environmental Protection Agency for these pollution violations. Hillary Clinton had left the board of Lafarge in spring, just after her husband won the Democrat nomination. A year later, under Bill’s presidency, the Clinton administration reduced Lafarge’s EPA fine to less than $600,000.”

This type of quid-pro-quo is found to be common throughout the whole of the political apparatus in the U.S. However, it has become a specialty of the Clintons, a la the Clinton Foundation/State Department pay for play schemes, which we highlighted in a recent article.

The investigative report by The Canary goes on to reveal the nefarious nature of the Clinton/Lafarge connection:

In the late 1980s, according to an archived investigative report in the American Spectator, Hillary Clinton was connected to Lafarge when the firm was involved in facilitating CIA support for Saddam Hussein’s secret weapons programme.

The American Spectator report from November 1996 cited sources confirming that Hillary Clinton did legal work for Lafarge in the late 1980s before she became a director. The report also claimed that Lafarge’s US subsidiary:

“provided key services for the covert arms export network that supplied Saddam Hussein. To prevent exposure of that secret supply line, and collateral damage to Hillary Clinton – who joined Lafarge board in 1990, just as the arms pipeline was being shut down… the Justice Department was told to bury the investigation… But investigators from other US government agencies who worked on the case say they were ‘waved off’ whenever they got too close to exposing the direct involvement of the intelligence community in the arms export scheme.”

Lafarge remains close to the Clintons to this day. In 2013, Lafarge’s Executive Vice President for Operations, Eric Olson, was a ‘featured attendee’ at the Clinton Global Initiative’s annual meeting.

The company is a regular donor to the Clinton Foundation – the firm’s up to $100,000 donation was listed in its annual donor list for 2015. Lafarge is also listed again as a donor to the Clinton Foundation for the first quarter of 2016.

The dark reality of these connections to the Clinton apparatus should raise serious red flags, and must be brought to light for the American public to see.

The American people have a right to see the types of activities that have been carried out by Hillary Clinton and her cronies. Since the mainstream corporate media refuses to provide a modicum of in-depth investigative coverage of the nefarious deeds undertaken by the Clintons, it is up to citizens on social media to help awaken the sleeping masses.

Please share this critical information far and wide and help expose the depths of Hillary’s corruption!

A rapidly deteriorating political situation, accompanied by shrinking incomes and disastrous social conditions with racial problems to top it all off wouldn’t go unnoticed in any state.

The inhabitants of such a country in the long-run would be appalled by the prospects of living in poverty for the rest of their lives, surviving on crumbs that fall from the oligarchs’ table. Nobody wants to live without prospects or hope, therefore, people are often leaving such states in droves, renouncing their citizenship with no intention to ever return again.

And we are not talking here about those who fled the poorest countries of the world, even though a massive flow of such people has swept Europe over the last 12 months due to the massive number of refugees fleeing hunger, poverty and conflicts in the Middle East and Africa. In fact, we are talking about the so-called “stronghold of democracy,” namely the United States.

The rapidly deteriorating living conditions of common Americans have been covered only by a handful of media sources, both in the mainstream and the alternative media. However, what the U.S. media and politicians prefer to keep silent about is the massive exodus of American citizens from the United States.

However, one must admit that the number of those renouncing their U.S. citizenship has been skyrocketing lately. This can be confirmed by the data provided by the Federal Tax Service in the Federal Register.

It’s hardly a secret that Americans have started renouncing their citizenship en masse starting back in 2009. Ever since, this army of “traitors”, as those people are usually referred to in the US, has been growing at an alarming rate. There must be a number of good reasons for a person to take such a serious step, but one of the main reasons is the veritable hunt for tax evaders that the federal government announced six years ago. This hunt was declared once UBS – Switzerland’s largest bank – admitted that it was assisting wealthy Americans in their bid to hide money overseas. This incident resulted in the adoption of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) by U.S. Congress. This document requires foreign financial institutions to report the income of their clients, in cases where they happen to be U.S. citizens. For nearly five decades only the wealthiest Americans were subjected to double taxation, but now, however, American authorities are subjecting any American citizen to double taxation, regardless of their income. Those who commit FATCA violations are usually facing heavy fines or even exclusion from the global financial system.

Although US authorities say that FATCA is aimed at only the wealthiest Americans who are reluctant to pay taxes, it’s the middle class that is getting caught in the crossfire. That is why, according to a deVere Group survey, four out of five American expats are thinking about giving up their passport due to FATCA.

As a result, the U.S. government has transformed the desire of common Americans to pack up and leave into a profitable business. It’s been reported that the U.S. government has collected about 12.6 million dollars in fees since fall 2014, after quintupling the amount it charges for renunciations, according to official data. That’s more than double the total it garnered over the six previous years.

The number of Americans who renounce their U.S. citizenship is still growing at an alarming rate. The number has tripled in 2009 in comparison with the previous year, reaching 742. 2010 saw 1,534 Americans leaving their homeland forever, while in 2013 this number grew to 3,000 people. The number in 2014 with 3,415 men and women renouncing their citizenship was surpassed last year, when 4,279 Americans gave up their passports. This is 20% higher than the year earlier and 18.5 times more than back in 2008.

One may ask where all these people go? In general, they are going to English-speaking countries. In such countries, Americans find jobs more easily and make the necessary connections with the help of native English speakers. It should be noted that the absolute majority of the American population knows no second languages which puts a severe limit on their options. To a certain degree, this fact can be attributed to the hegemonic ambitions of the state and ongoing national propaganda that leads people to a conclusion that the rest of the world should adapt to the rules, customs, and language used and imposed by the United States. This feature is typical even for U.S. diplomatic workers who often have a minimum knowledge of foreign languages, in spite of the requirements of their job.

So almost a quarter of former Americans are living in Mexico, since many of them have at least a minimal command of the Spanish language. Canada and the U.K. also remain a fairly popular destination, even though many former Americans prefer to live in Germany, Australia, Israel – all states with large American diasporas.

Against this backdrop, most experts agree that if Washington refuses to address the most pressing concerns of common Americans, concerns the Obama and Bush administration have decided to turn their backs on in favour of unending armed conflicts in various regions of the world, the number of Americans fleeing abroad will continue to rise rapidly.

Files linking Britain to Israel’s nuclear weapons go missing from National Archives*

Files linking Britain to Israel’s nuclear weapons go missing from National Archives*

Official documents on Britain’s relationship with Israel, including papers on “military and nuclear collaboration” in the 1970s, have disappeared from the National Archives in the last four years.

More than 400 records have gone missing from the repository in Kew, southwest London, including a 1947 letter from Winston Churchill and a Home Office document on the 1910 Suffragettes “disturbances.”

The Archives reassured the public it is following a “robust” plan to find the lost files.

The loss of the documents was uncovered following a BBC freedom of information (FoI) request, which found the last recorded knowledge of the 402 historical dossiers was January 2012.

Among them is a Foreign Office file titled ‘Military and nuclear collaboration with Israel: Israeli nuclear armament,’ in which the British government notes Israel’s intention to purchase nuclear weapons.

The document is thought to be linked to a United Nations resolution from 1978 listing the “increasing evidence” of the Middle Eastern country’s attempts at acquiring weapons of mass destruction.

This is not the only National Archives paper to report on Anglo-Israeli nuclear agreements. A 1958 document, made public by the BBC a decade ago, showed how Britain sold 20 tons of heavy water – one of the ingredients needed to generate plutonium – to Israel, to be used in the country’s top secret Dimona nuclear reactor.

The lost file is believed to have been part of a portfolio of official 1970s documents on arms control and nuclear disarmament.

Israel neither admits nor denies its possession of nuclear weapons and has never publicly tested one. It is universally believed to have them, however, but its official secrecy means it is unclear exactly how many.

It is thought that the files may have simply been misplaced and will soon be found. National Archives officials highlighted that less than 0.01 percent of the library’s 11 million public records disappear, accounting for around 100 files each year.

“We are a working archive with a robust, ongoing program dedicated to locating misplaced documents and many are subsequently found again after a thorough search,” a spokesperson for the Archives said.

Around 1,600 documents were reported missing between 2005 and 2011.

“The challenge is to ensure that you’ve got the systems to prevent that, because with every loss of a potential piece of archive you’re losing some history and understanding,” said Labour MP and All-Party Parliamentary Group on Archives and History vice-chair Tristram Hunt.

“You’re losing a sense of connection and you’re losing the fabric of the past.”
