Since Smartphones Are Exceeding RF Safety Limits, Does That Mean Wearables Could Be Also?

By B.N. Frank

Yesterday, Activist Post reported about a Chicago Tribune investigation that uncovered how many popular smartphones exceed federal RF safety standards. Does it make you wonder how many wireless wearable devices — Bluetooth, ear buds, hearing aids, Fitbits, smart watches, etc. — are exceeding federal safety limits, too?...

Chicago Tribune Reports Various Smartphones Substantially Exceed Outdated Gov’t Safety Limits

By B.N. Frank

Those of us who are old enough remember that there were no “Smart” phones in 1996. There were cell phones for making calls — that’s it. Most people didn’t own them. Parents certainly weren’t giving them to their kids.

U.S. safety limits don’t apply to today’s cell phones and other wireless devices. They don’t apply to the way most people are exposed to them either. It’s not surprising that the Chicago Tribune discovered that various smartphones exceed the FCC safety limits. What’s unfortunate is that these limits have offered no protection to any of us for many years now...

Medical Destruction: It’s Not Just a Conspiracy Theory

By Jon Rappoport

We’re now living in a time of accusations. A public official or mainstream press outlet doesn’t like what they’re hearing, and they say, “Well, that’s just another conspiracy theory.”

And then know-nothing people breathe a sigh of relief and move on. “Thank goodness THAT’S NOT REAL.”

If enough authorities repeat “conspiracy theory,” the truth goes begging.

In this case, the facts have arrived. What’s missing is widespread knowledge of those facts. The mainstream press is a cover-up operation...

Zendrive Can Turn Drivers Smartphones Into Insurance Surveillance Devices

By MassPrivateI

Leave it to Zendrive to create a safe driving app that can turn your smartphone into an insurance surveillance device.

Zendrive encourages people and companies to download their safe driving app which uses a person’s smartphone to detect unsafe driving habits.

Their video claims that they do not track or identify individual drivers, but towards the end of the video they boast that “it is easy to identify, coach and improve unsafe drivers.”...

ARE GENE EDITED COWS OR HUMANS WHAT WE REALLY NEED?

SOURCE: F. WILLIAM ENGDAHL
Scientists using the “second generation” of genetic manipulation technology have used gene-editing to alter the DNA of breed of cattle so that they supposedly do not grow horns. At around the same time another group of scientists claim to have injected human cells into monkeys to create chimeras, as in the ancient Greek myths of beings part lion, part snake. Earlier this year a group of Chinese researchers claimed to have deliberately gene-edited monkey clones with a mental disturbance. What few realize is that all this is taking place almost entirely without any serious health and safety regulation. Is this what mankind really needs at this juncture?

Gene-edited hornless cows

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember; " Big Agriculture" is one of the most generous campaign contributors around, and have done a good job of convincing the Congress critters they control, that people don't really need to know if the food they are eating is GMO, or not; but the cautionary info from this research, suggests that these recombinent genes are going to have some very negative effects, particularly down the road.

We need to demand both strict protocols for this research, and to not allow it to get into the American food chain, unvetted.

GOOGLE AND MOZILLA BLOCK KAZAKHSTAN’S BROWSER SPYING TOOL

SOURCE: MOTHERBOARD | VICE

On Wednesday, Google and Mozilla announced they would block an encryption certificate the Kazakhstan government has forced citizens to download. The certificate allows authorities to intercept Facebook, Twitter, Google, and other passwords of the 18 million people in the country. But now with two of the main browser makers pushing back, that surveillance will be more difficult for the government to carry out.

“We will never tolerate any attempt, by any organization—government or otherwise—to compromise Chrome users’ data. We have implemented protections from this specific issue, and will always take action to secure our users around the world," Parisa Tabriz, senior engineering director for Chrome, said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW, look at THAT: "virtue signaling" abroad, while these platform behemoths sensor and suppress conservative views here in the US.

Guys, you are so busted in this pathetic play for sympathy on the evil you do, and plan to do ahead of the 2020 election, if I start laughing, I will be unable to stop.

CNET Journalist Promotes 5G as Safe Even When Telecom Execs Say They Have No Evidence That It Is

By B.N. Frank

In February, the Telecom Industry gave congressional testimony that they have NO scientific evidence that exposure to 5G is safe. This being said, it’s always bizarre and annoying when journalists defend it.

CNET Science Editor Jackson Ryan must not have gotten that memo. Then again, maybe Jackson prefers living in a fantasy world remaining completely oblivious to any research that has already determined exposure to all sources of wireless radiation is harmful – not just 5G...

Massachusetts’ Addiction to Regulation Keeps Most Pot Sales on the Black Market

By Max Gulker

Since Massachusetts residents passed a 2016 referendum legalizing recreational cannabis, the fate of the industry has largely been in the hands of the state’s Cannabis Control Commission. Having licensed 23 pot stores across the state, and set rules for individual growers, the commission is now drafting rules for marijuana delivery services.

You may be chuckling right now at the possibility of a stereotypical stoner’s dream to never leave his home coming true, or because Massachusetts, never coy about heavy-handed regulations, has created something called the Cannabis Control Commission. Take a moment to get those laughs out of your system, because we can learn a lot about government regulation from Massachusetts’ early experiences with legal pot, and what we learn is no laughing matter...

NRDC and American Tribal Groups’ Update on Cell Tower Lawsuits, The FCC, and Why You Should Care About 5G

By B.N. Frank

The FCC is supposed to protect the public by regulating the Telecom Industry. Instead they have a long history of protecting the telecom industry at the public’s expense. This has become way scarier due to the “Race for 5G” which involves installing hundreds of thousands (maybe millions) of small cells in front of homes and everywhere else.

Opposition and warnings have been publicized by a growing list of credible sources including Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and 19 American tribal groups...

In 2017, Swiss doctor Bertrand Buchs launched a petition asking for a moratorium on installation and many doctors and scientists have already signed it.

Worldwide opposition to 5G is growing and includes individuals and organizations concerned about other issues associated with this technology in addition to biological and environmental risks. Regardless, 5G continues to be installed and operated in the U.S. and around the world even though it’s been reported that people and their pets have been getting sick from exposure. This is now also being reported in Geneva, Switzerland...

New Study Reveals How ADHD Drugs “Alter The Structure of Children’s Brains”

By Elias Marat

As attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) continues to remain an extremely common diagnosis for children in the United States, researchers are warning doctors to hold off on issuing popular ADHD drugs such as Ritalin and Concerta unless absolutely necessary.

The warnings come as scans of children who take such drugs as methylphenidate (MPH), commonly known as Ritalin, show that they have a major effect on the development of white matter in the brains of children, impairing their ability to learn and coordinate communication between regions of the brain...

Active Ingredient in Weedkiller Found in 19 of 20 Top Beer and Wine Brands, Study Says

Some of America’s most popular beer and wine contain glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, according to a report by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group (U.S. PIRG).

In a report titled Glyphosate pesticide in beer and wine, U.S. PIRG tested 20 samples of beer, wine, and hard cider, including several organic brands. The report found that all but one contained the potentially harmful chemical glyphosate.

"Pesticide Cheerleader": EPA Rebukes California With Ban On Warning Labels For Bayer's Roundup

President Donald Trump's Environmental Protection Agency was accused of being a pesticide "cheerleader" last week after the agency said it would not approval labels that say that glyphosate — the active ingredient in Roundup and other weedkillers — is known to cause cancer.

In a statement released Thursday announcing the move, the EPA dug in on its assertion that glyphosate does not cause cancer, though critics have said that is "an industry-friendly conclusion that's simply not based on the best available science."

The new guidance takes aim at California's 2017 move, in adherence with its Proposition 65, to add glyphosate to its list of chemicals known to cause cancer and require warning labels. The state cited the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer 2015 assessment that glyphosate is "probably carcinogenic to humans."

Sunscreens Release Metals and Inorganic Nutrients Into Seawater

Beachgoers are becoming increasingly aware of the potentially harmful effects UV filters from sunscreens can have on coral and other marine organisms when the protective lotions wash off their bodies into the ocean.

Now, researchers have studied how sunscreens release different compounds — trace metals and inorganic nutrients — into Mediterranean seawater, with unknown effects on marine ecology. They report their results in ACS’ journal Environmental Science & Technology.

Millions of people are hitting the beach slathered in sunscreen this summer. Some might choose “coral-safe” sunscreens that lack oxybenzone and octinoxate, the two substances most widely linked to coral reef damage. However, scientists don’t yet know what effects other trace compounds in sunscreens might have on marine ecosystems...

Petition Started Against P&G’s Pampers “Smart” Diapers

Activist Post recently reported about the dangers associated with babies wearing P&G’s “Smart” Diapers. Many health experts including The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) warn kids are more vulnerable to exposure to all sources of wireless radiation.

No safe level of exposure has even been determined for children or pregnant women. Earlier this year 250 scientists signed a petition warning against numerous products that emit Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation. This now includes “Smart” diapers which are also being manufactured and marketed by Huggies...

Bricks, death threats and fury: A last-ditch fight against California’s vaccine crackdown

California’s debate over a proposed law to tighten kids’ exemptions for mandatory vaccines was never subtle.

Lawmakers sponsoring the bill say they’ve been receiving death threats for months. Someone in June mailed Assembly members dozens of bricks etched with appeals to kill the measure. On Twitter, celebrities heckle vaccine proponents and each side warns of deadly consequences.

Now, as lawmakers head into the final weeks of this year’s legislative session, anti-vaccine advocates are turning to an out-of-state political operative known for provocative campaigns in a last-ditch effort to undermine a bill that Gov. Gavin Newsom has already indicated he’d sign.

Why the Prescription Drug Market Doesn’t Work for Patients

By Laura Williams and Dan Sanchez

What does it take to get vital medical care in America? For Laura Matson, a type-1 diabetic, it took upending her whole life. To pay for her insulin treatments, she had to sell her car and furniture, relocate, and even give away her dog Nicky, as the BBC reported. And she is not alone. Many Americans struggle to make ends meet as their health care costs rise.

These rising costs are strange, in a sense. The prices of other consumer goods—nutritious food, digital devices, clothing, etc.—generally fall as technology advances and production becomes more efficient. Why is health care such an exception to this rule?...

Amazon admits it sold fake supplements

To illustrate just how much those third-party sellers mean to Amazon, statista.com reports that in the second quarter of 2019, those sellers' products represented 54 percent of Amazon's paid units.3

Unfortunately, those third-party sellers, which have taken over Amazon's platform by selling every imaginable type of product and service, all with a click of a button — the very technology Bezos envisioned from the start — are also a breeding ground for fraudsters who pose as brand name sellers, but actually sell knock-off products. Even worse, some of these fakes could cause real harm to consumers, especially when it comes to foods, drugs, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

Ohm my God: If you let anyone other than Apple replace your recent iPhone's battery, expect to be nagged by iOS

According to equipment repair nerve-center iFixit and Justin Ashford, who runs The Art of Repair channel on YouTube, third-party battery replacement in an iPhone XR, XS, or XS Max running iOS 12 or iOS 13 beta leads to the presentation of a "Service" message in the Battery Health sub-menu that's part of the fondleslab's Battery settings menu.

This message urges the iPhone owner to have the newly installed battery replaced – which Apple advises should be done only through an Apple Store or authorized service provider due to potential safety issues – even if an Apple-supplied battery is installed by a third-party.

An investigation by China Labor Watch has found that Amazon's Alexa and Echo devices are being made by child interns, some forced to work night shifts so suppliers can keep up with peak demand.

The report found schools providing interns to work night shifts at a Hengyang Foxconn plant, producing Amazon devices. Kids who declined compulsory overtime were told by their teachers that it would affect their graduation from school. Teachers stayed at the factory and, it is alleged, helped fire pupils who refused to cooperate.

The “Science” That Google Relies On

By Lynne McTaggart

Under the emphatic headline ‘This has to stop,’ my good friend, bestselling author Arielle Ford (The Soulmate Secret), posted an article claiming that Google was burying Alternative Medicine sites to ‘protect people against false claims.’

Among the comments from her readers was someone who wrote in to defend Google’s and Wikipedia’s decisions. As it turned out, he revealed, he was one of Google’s rankers, who determine the placement of information on the search engine’s pages. Naturally, he said, the Mayo Clinic would appear in an earlier page above an alternative medicine site because its practices are based on far more science than alternative medicine is.

This was a fascinating, if brief, insight into the minds of Google’s and Wikipedia’s adjudicators and how they are determining what version of reality the likes of you and me are allowed to see. I have to take issue with this fellow’s definition of the word ‘scientific.’...

Monsanto (Bayer) operated an intelligence-gathering “fusion center,” to discredit journalists and activists, including singer Neil Young, and paid Google to bury results in its search engine, The Guardian, reported.

Activist Post previously reported that Bayer/Monsanto — the formerly merged company of potentially two of the evilest businesses in history — had kept a file of 200 names, including journalists and lawmakers in hopes of influencing their positions on pesticides according to French prosecutors.

How US regulators embrace toxic pesticides & the corporations that make them

As an increasing number of hazardous chemicals are banned around the world, they remain legal in the US. Why are American regulators so slow to move, and who benefits from their inaction?

Dozens of pesticides, up to 85 in total, approved for widespread agricultural use in the United States have been banned elsewhere in the world. For example, the US allows 11 different pesticides banned in China, and 17 that have been prohibited in Brazil.

The contrast is especially stark in Europe. The recently banned pesticide chlorpyrifos has serious genotoxic and neurological effects, especially in children, the European Food Safety Authority warned in a report published over the weekend. The pesticide, which comes up for re-approval in January, does not comply with EU health regulations because a safe exposure level cannot be established, even at the lowest experimental quantity.

Monsanto Operated A “Fusion Center” To Monitor And Discredit Journalists And Activists

Monsanto operated a "fusion center" to monitor and discredit journalists and activists, and targeted a reporter who wrote a critical book on the company, documents reveal. The agrochemical corporation also investigated the singer Neil Young and wrote an internal memo on his social media activity and music.

The records reviewed by the Guardian show Monsanto adopted a multi-pronged strategy to target Carey Gillam, a Reuters journalist who investigated the company’s weedkiller and its links to cancer. Monsanto, now owned by the German pharmaceutical corporation Bayer, also monitored a not-for-profit food research organization through its "intelligence fusion center", a term that the FBI and other law enforcement agencies use for operations focused on surveillance and terrorism.

The documents, mostly from 2015 to 2017, were disclosed as part of an ongoing court battle on the health hazards of the company’s Roundup weedkiller.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That shows that Monsanto knew there was a problem with Glyphosate and actively worked to cover it up.

Amazon’s Ring Is a Perfect Storm of Privacy Threats

By Matthew Guariglia

Doors across the United States are now fitted with Amazon’s Ring, a combination doorbell-security camera that records and transmits video straight to users’ phones, to Amazon’s cloud—and often to the local police department. By sending photos and alerts every time the camera detects motion or someone rings the doorbell, the app can create an illusion of a household under siege. It turns what seems like a perfectly safe neighborhood into a source of anxiety and fear. This raises the question: do you really need Ring, or have Amazon and the police misled you into thinking that you do?..

Diabetic, 27, dies after taking cheaper insulin as he lost private health insurance

Josh Wilkerson was alone, in the sleeping quarters above the northern Virginia dog kennel where he worked, when he suffered a series of strokes that would prove fatal.

He had aged out of his stepfather’s health insurance plan on his 26th birthday and eventually switched to over-the-counter insulin. Like many other diabetics his age, he could not afford the prescription brand he needed.

A few hours after taking another dose of the lower-grade medication that June day in Leesburg, Mr Wilkerson was in the throes of a diabetic coma – his blood sugar level 17 times higher than what is considered normal.

YouTube Censorship Drives Uptake of Crypto-Powered Video Platforms

By Kai Sedgwick

If the prospect of greater privacy and financial sovereignty doesn’t lure the masses to crypto networks, perhaps the ability to speak freely will. Lately, a lot of people who couldn’t give a damn about peer-to-peer cryptocurrency have taken a shine to peer-to-peer networks that run on the same censorship-resistant principles. As social networks run amok, deplatforming users for the slightest provocation, decentralized alternatives start to look increasingly alluring.

McDonald's hated new 'eco-friendly' paper straws CANNOT be recycled - unlike the plastic versions they replaced

McDonald's hated 'eco-friendly' paper straws cannot be recycled - unlike the plastic versions they replaced.

The fast food giant switched from plastic to paper across their 1,361 restaurants in the UK and Ireland, after facing pressure to become more eco-friendly.

But customers have been critical of the new straw, saying they dissolve before a drink can be finished, and become 'mushy' when drinking a milkshake.

Some have called for the return of plastic straws, which McDonald's admitted were '100 per cent recyclable.'

Now, an internal memo revealed by The Sun, admits the new paper versions can't be recycled and have to be burned.

Competition Should Be Neither Restricted Nor Mandated

By Connie Lin

The malicious type of monopoly or oligopoly forms when a business or a group of businesses seek to protect their position of dominance not through competitive merit but through government assistance. This is called cronyism, where companies extract favors in the form of subsidies, more regulation on competitors, tariffs, and other tactics to weaken the competition. The more the government intervenes in the economy, the more vulnerable institutions are to cronyism due to regulatory capture. Competition is stifled by laws intended to increase barriers to entry in order to protect existing enterprises.

Regulatory agencies often become dominated by the very industries they are charged with regulating...

S&P Bearish on 5G, Tesla’s Coil and the T-Mobile Merger

By Renee Parsons

The FCC, the telecoms and cooperating MSM continue their resolute PR campaign to sell 5G to an unsuspecting American public as if the technology is up and running at effortless full capacity. The truth is that even as ‘spotty’ coverage is being established in large urban markets, the telecoms are well aware that there are fundamental uncertainties yet to be addressed which may take years before widespread distribution can be accomplished.

The industry is driven by the hard reality that consumer indifference to increased data speed may be enough to threaten a return on their $275 billion investment...

Plant-based burgers may not be as healthy as you think

The Meatless Farm claims its products are "almost indistinguishable from meat in terms of taste and texture" and are 100 percent plant-based, which is basically the same thing that Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods say about their burgers. “The trick to all of these meatless burgers is they want them to taste like real meat in order to convert traditional meat-eaters. When they do that, they add processed chemicals to them, they add high sodium content to them because if something doesn’t taste salty, it doesn’t taste like real meat.”
