Are Wireless Technology Safety Standards Sub-standard?

 The Epoch Times reports that wireless technology safety standards may be sub-standard because of "the close ties between regulator and industry":

 Lawsuit Challenges FCC Wireless Safety Standards

Groups claim robust science ignored due to close ties between regulator and industry
 
Wireless technology has become an essential part of our world. But what if this modern necessity is also harming our health?

That’s the claim in a suit filed against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

The case was submitted in February, but two nonprofits—Children’s Health Defense (CHD) and Environmental Health Trust (EHT)—jointly filed their opening brief on July 29 in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. The case challenges the FCC to reconsider its wireless health and safety guidelines that have been in place since 1996.

When the rules were first written, cellular phones were simple, brick-sized units, and relatively rare. Today, they’ve morphed into slim, multipurpose devices, kept in our pockets, that are virtually indispensable to nearly everyone. But as wireless use has increased, so has our exposure to the non-ionizing radiation used to carry the data over the airwaves—known as radiofrequency (RF) or microwave radiation. The case alleges that the FCC ignores clear evidence of harm to people and the environment from this ubiquitous technology.

For more than 25 years, regulators have assured the public that FCC safety standards are still effective enough to meet a modern world bathed in a wireless field. They are also confident that even 5G—another, higher-frequency layer of RF radiation with hundreds of thousands of new broadcasting cells installed in close proximity to where people live and work—poses no threat to our well-being.

The brief, however, points to evidence of harm at so-called safe levels. Some petitioners attached to the case claim that normal, everyday exposure to wireless has made them so sick that they are forced to retreat from the modern world just to survive.

Heat Hypothesis

In a July 30 press conference for the case, CHD Chairman Robert F. Kennedy explained that the federal standard designating safe levels of microwave radiation exposure—the Telecommunications Act of 1996—states that safety is merely an issue of temperature. Basically, as long as exposure is not enough to create heat, as in a microwave oven, the body suffers no harm. But the case against the FCC urges the agency to take a closer look at the evidence to the contrary.

“We know now, from thousands and thousands of peer-reviewed published studies, that microwave radiation injures the human body and human cells at a tiny fraction of what it takes to raise the temperature of your body,” Kennedy said. “It shows a grim inventory of injuries connected to Wi-Fi, including oxidative stress, sperm and testicular damage, cell damage, DNA damage, and neuropsychiatric damage. The neuropsychiatric damage can be so powerful that it can be read almost immediately on EEGs in children, and those effects do not disappear after you withdraw the radiation.”

But regulators say these studies fall short. After years of collecting public commentary regarding concerns of harm from wireless technology, the FCC declared that there was nothing substantive enough to change their guidelines. In an over-100-page report from Dec. 19, 2019, the Commission stated that their old standard was sufficient to ensure public safety.

“After reviewing the extensive record submitted in response to that inquiry, we find no appropriate basis for and thus decline to propose amendments to our existing limits at this time,” the FCC report states. “We take our duty to protect the public from any potential harm due to RF exposure seriously.”

But Dr. David O. Carpenter, director of the U.S. Institute for Health and the Environment and a petitioner in the CHD case, says the heat hypothesis that regulators rely on to determine safety doesn’t come from doctors.

“They derived their information from the Institute for Electronic and Electrical Engineers, (IEEE), and agencies dominated by electrical engineers and physicists, not the kind of people you want to go to if you have a heart attack,” Carpenter said. “And yet, these are the people that the FCC take their information from in setting standards that are supposed to be protective of human health.”

Carpenter has been warning about the damage wireless poses to public health for several years. He’s co-editor of the Bio-Initiative Report—a document compiled by 29 independent scientists and health experts from around the world detailing evidence of harm from wireless radiation.

The Bio-Initiative Report was first published in 2012, but stronger studies have come out since then—notably, a $30 million study by the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP). With support from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the NTP study was designed to be the final word on whether or not wireless causes health problems. The study exposed rodents to a lifetime of cellphone radiation showing that wireless exposure clearly causes cancer, DNA damage, and disrupts the endocrine system....

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Vox Cantoris vs. Aqua

The Catholic Monitor commenter Aqua had this to say to the Vox Cantoris website: Aqua said… Fred, your topic here reminds me of a dust-up, a few days ago, on Vox Cantoris. He asserted that it is our duty as Christians to wear masks to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass if the government tells us we must, or they will close our Churches. My response to him was that I find it inconceivable that an orthodox Catholic, such as himself, would ever submit to unjust dictates from secular government over how we approach Our Lord in Holy Mass. My response to him was that the Mass belongs to Catholics and we decide, within the bounds of Tradition, and in accord with the Word of Jesus, how we conduct ourselves in Holy Mass. Only one authority prevails over Mass and that is our God and the Sacred Tradition given by Him to guide us in all times and places. Understand, there is nothing inherently wrong with wearing a mask to Mass. But there is EVERYTHING wrong with wearing a symbol

Inventor of mRNA Vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD: "'Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò is calling for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance 'under the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the only King and Savior,' to fight back against the establishment of the New World Order'"

T his is what the inventor of mRNA vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD himself, reported about the vaccines: Robert W Malone, MD @RWMaloneMD "We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination."
