Study Found Nanoparticles Of Metal In Human Brains: Geoengineering, How To Detox

Our world intentionally contaminated with heavy metals from the skies, in the water and food, including from MD institutionalized medications.  The system that's supposed to protect our environment, and food brazenly corrupted - there's zero oversight!  We need to be our own best protection by controlling what we eat and drink.  Resist temptation to eat out at public restaurants and fast food joints.  Fix your own meals to control exactly what goes into your system.  Take your long distance trips the old fashioned ways with loaded picnic baskets made up with home checked and made ingredients.  Don't drink tap water!  And the rest what we cannot control i.e. metals dumped from Chemtrails we incorporate variety of detox practice as a lifestyle until the perps responsible for contaminating the world environment stop.
(Era of Wisdomrecent study found nanoparticles of metal in human brains, raising the eyebrows of geoengineering researchers such as the prolific Patrick Roddie of Stop Spraying Us. While the study doesn’t connect geoengineering to the particles, it is well understood that exposure to geoengineering poisons the body with heavy metals.
This video examines the metal findings, and rain tests performed by Stop Spraying Us which found high levels of aluminum, barium and other metals in the rainwater of cities such as Sacramento, California.
Sacramento is where we captured footage of some of the worst chemtrails you may have ever seen, in the same time period when Stop Spraying Us found 4700μg/L aluminum in the city’s rainwater.
We also examine a few solutions to heavy metal exposure, including silica from diatomaceous earth to detox aluminum from the body, and selenium to detox mercury from the body.
"Diatomaceous earth acts as a mild abrasive topically as well as internally. It can help to remove intestinal invaders and other harmful organisms from the digestive tract. As an internal cleanser, diatomaceous earth may aid cleansing by supporting regularity and assist in removing toxic metals[7] Some studies have shown diatomaceous earth to be very successful in ridding animals of harmful organisms. Food-grade diatomaceous earth placed in the feed of livestock may help discourage fleas and other harmful bugs. [8] Make sure that all diatomaceous earth is labeled “food grade” and is untreated and unheated!" <Article Source>
"Selenium acts as a mercury magnet with a very strong binding affinity for the toxic substance. This strong attraction allows selenium to mix and neutralize their reaction characteristics. This new Hg – Se substance that is produced is not absorbed by the body and gets flushed out of the system.
This is a very beneficial interaction that removes mercury from the body before it can lodge in fatty tissue and cause damage (6, 7)."  <Article Source>

“The truth is coming and it cannot be stopped.”

With the U.S. Presidential election just two weeks away, many people around the world are anxiously waiting to see what will happen. While it is no surprise that if either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton wins the election, many people will be upset, and many people will be happy. What is most important to keep in mind during and after this time is that regardless of who wins, humanity’s awakening will continue. 
Even though 2016 has been a year where much hidden has come to light, this is still only the beginning.
We have seen direct evidence of collusion between a presidential candidate and the Democratic National Convention, thanks to Wikileaks. We have also seen the mainstream media lose almost all credibility as those outlets continue to promote known lies and propaganda, on a wide range of topics such as rigged election “polls.”
We also continue to see the grassroots movement of alternative media expanding and reaching more and more people. With the truth spreading to more people on a daily basis, at some point soon we will reach the “breaking point” or “critical mass.” At that point we will witness the complete collapse of the Establishment’s lies and the emergence of truth, which in turn naturally leads to true freedom and peace for all.
While there are still dark things taking place on our planet, remember that all must be revealed in order to return to light. We must see what has been done so that we can heal and move past it, while creating something that works for all.
“The truth is coming and it cannot be stopped.”

Software Security Alert: Why You Should Switch From Microsoft Operating System to Linux

"Russian President Vladimir Putin has banned Microsoft products from Russia and placed Bill Gates on a Federal Security Service watchlist. Citing “concerns over security and reliability,” Putin has ordered the removal of Microsoft software to begin immediately. Government spokesman Sergei Zheleznyak explained that Microsoft had been caught carrying out “minute-by-minute surveillance” on millions of Russian citizens – as well as citizens of other countries. “The US, which presents itself as a bastion of democracy, has in fact been carrying out minute-by-minute surveillance of tens of millions of citizens of Russia and other countries.“ <Article Source Link>
 If you havent read the EULA, then you might be surprised as to how much information you may be giving to Microsoft, simply through using your new operating system. For example, see excerpt from the EULA:

“When you acquire, install and use the Program software and services, Microsoft collects information about your use of the software and services as well as about the devices and networks on which they operate. Examples of data we may collect include your name, email address, preferences and interests; location, browsing, search and file history; phone call and SMS data; device configuration and sensor data; voice, text and writing input; and application usage.”  This basically translates to “You’re being watched”  <Article Source Link>

"Nonfree (proprietary) software is very often malware (designed to mistreat the user). Nonfree software is controlled by its developers, which puts them in a position of power over the users; that is the basic injustice. The developers often exercise that power to the detriment of the users they ought to serve."  <Article Source Link>

If you read around, various articles claim Microsoft's intrusive spyware can be turned off if you know where to look inside the configuration.  Let me tell you right now -
Don't Believe it!  Even Microsoft hints to this fact in the Microsoft Admits Windows 10 Auto-Spying Can’t Be Disabled <link> article.  So what to do?

In my humble opinion you're strongly advised to switch to the free Linux operating system as soon as possible or to the extent your technical ability permits.  Today's modern Linux version are easy enough to operate on basic level even for the novice.  Those who are hesitant can join Linux user groups or take a local community course on how to work with Linux.  There are many brands and Linux flavor.  Browse around and research.

You can run any Linux version on a "live" CD by booting from it (You have to set your computer to boot from CD or Pendrive)  The catch with live CD that it's read only.  You will not be able to write new information to it.  Good points on this that malicious hackers cannot damage the "read-only" operating system.  And there's a work around to saving data while booted with live CD by saving your data to your hard drive - assuming it has been mapped to a drive.  Sometimes mapping needs manual intervention.

Other option is to use a bootable Linux pendrive.   This allows you to write data directly back to the pendrive making it much more usable than CD drive.  When choosing this option check if there's enough free space left on the bootable pendrive in case you plan to collect data for long term.

Next option is to install Linux as a "dual-boot"option giving you best of both worlds: Your old Microsoft system with the new Linux OS.  However, again, you're strongly advised NOT to connect ever again to the internet with Microsoft OS.  Whenever you need to boot into Microsoft for various software processing make sure you disconnect the internet cable from the router.  Never expose your computer to the internet in the Microsoft mode!

What else should you know?  The Linux operating system has a basic, software firewall.  Make sure to activate this with the "on" switch.  Always connect to the internet with a properly configured firewall on the router (that's connected to your internet provider's modem)with the admin name changed to something else and password protected.  Turn off the Wi-Fi!  Use only Ethernet cable connection for maximum security and health safety.

In an Oligarchy, Voting is a Tool to Manufacture the Illusion of Consent

Dylan CharlesEditor

If there’s one thing we’ve learned so far from election 2016 it’s that the American people do not understand their government.
The perception is that we have a democracy, and that in this democracy we the people have vested power in our government which we exercise through the act of voting. ‘Throw the bastards out,’ has long since been the war cry of the impotent democrat, yet we no longer even have a democracy to cling to, and although most people choose to ignore it, this fact of life has been visible for decades.
An oligarchical government is a form of rule in which a small group of wealthy individuals have control over the critical mechanisms of state power, industry and economy. These people are unelected, unaccountable and they exercise control on behalf of their personal financial interests, drawing on the productive power of a nation to support their lifestyles and geopolitical ambitions. The ruling class in such a nation is often comprised of dynastic families who pass the baton of power back and forth between themselves, managing the illusion of change and evolution while never actually ceding their franchise over the masses.
The Bush, Clinton, Bush, Clinton phenomenon is a contemporary example of this exchange.
In 2014, a Princeton study in the academic journal Perspectives on Politicspublished their conclusion that America had officially transitioned to an oligarchy. Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has even recently made comments to this effect, telling Oprah Winfrey and her audience that ‘now it’s just an oligarchy.’ These two warnings follow decades of comments and public admissions by former presidents and key political figures warning us that our country was being taken over by shadowy financial interests.
Inarguably, there is an invisible government running America, yet we are still urged to cast our vote for president every four years. Why do they allow us to participate in this charade if they know our vote doesn’t make any difference?

Voting as a Tool to Create the Illusion of Consent

Even many true dictatorships hold political elections as tools to manufacture the illusion of consent for their party. Stalin is perhaps the most astounding example of this, for, during his rule, while the people of the nation were being brutalized by The Red Terror, election results came in showing over 99% support for the Communist Party.
Saddam Hussein also used this tactic to great effect in a 1995 in a referendum aimed at creating the illusion of public support for his reign, with 99.9% of the population voting in favor.
China’s Mao, arguably the greatest murderer of all time, also forced his subjects into the ballot booth, using the results as propaganda to support his totalitarianism.
America is not yet a dictatorship, it is but an oligarchy with big dreams of becoming one. As such, we are still transitioning out of the ideology of personal liberty and self-rule, and are still dependent on the ritual of voting as acknowledgment of this heritage, even though selecting a president does nothing to favorably influence the direction of the nation.
The oligarchy still needs us to believe that we are free so that we won’t get serious about revolution, and voting is the best tool for maintaining this illusion. It serves the dual purposes of providing an outlet for our righteous indignation, pacifying our anger and sapping our political drive, and of acting as a survey to determine which policies will meet the least amount of popular resistance.
When we show up on election day, knowing full well the candidates we’ve been presented with do not represent our ambitions for this nation, we are tacitly expressing our willingness to being governed in this manner. We are contributing to the perception that our rulers have our permission to carry on, and by doing such we are acquiescing ever further to their dominion over us.

READ: 11 Tactics Used by the Mainstream Media to Manufacture Consent for the Oligarchy

Final Thoughts

If you’re one of the few Americans who hasn’t already committed yourself, heart and soul, to one of the two majorly phony political parties dominating the U.S., and are still trying to decide which taste of bitters you’ll go for on election day, consider this: there is no Constitutional requirement that you vote.
There is not yet a law in America that obliges you to consent to the corruption, lies, criminality, war-mongering, fear, hate, stupidity, tyranny, surveillance and self-destruction being championed by today’s candidates. You are still free to opt-out and explore the moral highroad of conscientious objection, should your value system be so utterly insulted by the fake election process taking place before us.
“The American people are being guilted, bullied, pressured, cajoled, intimidated, terrorized and browbeaten into voting. We’re constantly told to vote because it’s your so-called civic duty, because you have no right to complain about the government unless you vote, because every vote counts, because we must present a unified front, because the future of the nation depends on it, because God compels us to do so, because by not voting you are in fact voting, because the “other” candidate must be defeated at all costs, or because the future of the Supreme Court rests in the balance.
You are under no moral obligation to vote for the lesser of two evils. Indeed, voting for a lesser evil is still voting for evil.” ~John W. Whitehead

Activated Charcoal: Ancient Medicine Of The Egyptians, Greeks, & Native Americans

Activated Charcoal is one of the best detox item everyone should include in their detox toolbox.  However it should be used on intermittent basis ; i.e. one week on - one week off. There are many brands so show and research.  

The concept of eating charcoal does not come across as appetizing, but there is a distinct difference between charcoal and activated charcoal.

Activated charcoal can be used as an agent to help detox the body by absorbing a range of heavy metals, chemicals, and artificial drug remnants in the bloodstream; these are substances that are a hindrance to our health and completely unnatural.

After the activated charcoal absorbs the toxic chemicals from the bloodstream, the activated charcoal itself is not absorbed by the body. This key characteristic means that the toxins are expelled from the body along with the charcoal, resulting in a cleaner and more pure body.

The process by which charcoal becomes “activated” is a result of its very small particle size. Based on simple geometry, many small particles have a larger overall surface area, which increases capacity for absorption. Specifically, activated charcoal is created by combining acid and steam to carbonaceous materials like wood, coal, rye starch, and coconut shells.

For most of us, we lack a clear metric for how effective activated charcoal is at absorbing and, thus, eliminating toxins. One of the most actively practiced standards suggests that a standard 50 gram dose of activated charcoal equates to the surface area of 10 football fields! In addition to its cleansing properties, activated charcoal promotes healthier, more regular bowel movements, which accelerates the rate at which toxins are purified from the body.

Hippocrates, the Greek physician considered the father of natural medicine, used activated carbon to cure many patients. Activated charcoal (also referred to simply as carbon) has been called black magic because of it’s color and healing abilities.

Important Facts About Carbon:

Carbon negatively charged attracts positive ionic charges contained in toxins in poisons, which means they bind together and are subsequently expelled from the body through the excretion/intestinal process.

Carbon is well-known for removing heavy metals such as aluminum and lead.

Carbon is an air freshener.

Carbon is an effective treatment for the symptoms of traveler’s diarrhea.

Carbon treats stomach ulcers.

Carbon shares many properties with toothpaste and can be used to whiten teeth and improve bad breath as a bacteria killer.

Carbon reduces stomach gas which can result from eating beans and other common, gaseous foods.

Carbon helps to filter micro-particles and chlorine from drinking and bath water.

Carbon eliminates pharma toxins from the body like aspirin, accidental household chemical ingestion, and metals. It has served as a common remedy for food poisoning for hundreds of years; Ancient Egyptians harnessed the power of activated carbon, along with the Native Americans.

Carbon strips the body of parasites and bacteria. This can include everything from bus to invasive parasites to a stuffy nose.

Carbon needs to be specifically prepared for those with Crohn’s disease or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. In these instances, it would be best to do more extensive research about how to best channel the powers of activated carbon.

9/11 VERDICT: Mainstream Media Guilty Of The Biggest Coverup In US History

Every Major Organ Of The Mainstream Media Has Quite Willingly Participated In The Coverup Of The Crime Of The Millennium

“Many corporate titans ought to be in prison for knowingly and willfully, deliberately and purposefully, covering up the treasonous and heinous crimes committed against America on 9/11 … by rogue elements throughout the US Government”
— 9/11 Crminal Investigator

Really, just how long does the entire mainstream media (MSM) think they will get away with participating in the coverup of the 9/11 Crime Of The Millennium?
It has now been reported on C-SPAN that well over 2200 qualified architects and engineers have literally demolished the official 9/11 Commission Report and there’s nary a peep about it on CNN … or FOX News … or CBS … or MSNBC!
It has been many years since these dedicated and courageous engineering and architectural professionals first began working diligently on this monumental research project.  In fact their highly authoritative work constitutes the greatest criminal investigation in USA history.  For example:
And, yet, there’s no curiosity about their indisputable findings within the MSM.
There’s no in depth reporting about numerous engineering, architectural and metallurgical impossibilities asserted in the official NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology*) reports.  The NIST is literally permitted to violate laws of physics and chemistry, architecture and engineering, without any scrutiny or critical thinking from the Fourth Estate?!
*“NIST’s FY 2014 resources total $850.0 million in direct appropriations, an estimated $47.3 million in service fees, and $107.0 million from other agencies.
The agency operates in two locations: Gaithersburg, Md., (headquarters—234-hectare/578-acre campus) and Boulder, Colo., (84-hectare/208-acre campus). NIST employs about 3,000 scientists, engineers, technicians, and support and administrative personnel. NIST also hosts about 2,700 associates from academia, industry, and other government agencies, who collaborate with NIST staff and access user facilities. In addition, NIST partners more than 1,300 manufacturing specialists and staff at more than 400 MEP service locations around the country.”
(Per www.nist.gov)
That there are virtually no media interviews conducted by the MSM with these distinguished researchers and eminent scientists who have spent years ferreting out 9/11 truth is as mind-boggling as it is exasperating.  Particularly when the 9/11 terrorist attacks have turned out to be the single greatest defining moment of the new millennium having HUGE consequences for the United States of America, as well as profound impacts on the entire community of nations.
How can this be so … … … EXCEPT BY DESIGN?!
“Calculated and premeditated, planned and coordinated by those elements within the US Federal Government who would use the event to change the world forever” is the way one  researcher described the 9/11 terror events.  “Those who planned and executed the 9/11 attacks must have spent years tending to the many critical details required to bring two skyscrapers down into their own footprint.  They also had to have operated within the various government agencies and contracting entities necessary to gain access to highly secured buildings.  For instance the demolition explosives, which obviously brought down Building #7, would have required months of planning and placement of the charges in an ultra high security environment.”

A Vote For "Lesser" Evil Is Giving Your Consent for "More" Evil

Voting is an act of disempowerment. It’s essential message is “I appoint you to govern for me.” I prefer to govern myself (both meanings intended). And you?

So what of those who present the ‘lesser evil’ argument: one candidate is so bad that it is better to have the other. This “argument” is not worthy of scrutiny. If you are deceived by this argument, you will vote forever in the delusional hope that you will one day get a choice to vote for someone genuinely decent.

If you vote you are saying that you endorse this system of electoral exploitation. The tragedy is that even third-party candidates, who may be people of genuine principle, have no chance. Even worse, they add a veneer of legitimacy to your corrupt electoral system.

In essence, if you vote for the “lesser evil” you are still voting for an “evil” and, more importantly, you have participated in and endorsed an “evil” system: one which denies you a genuine “free and fair” choice to vote for a candidate who actually represents your interests and views and has a reasonable chance of winning. And, having won, is then able to actually implement their policies (rather than be stymied by a power structure that has no intention of letting this happen). Given your circumstances, “the only winning move is not to play” their corrupt game and to put your energy into a genuinely winning move: working for the regeneration of American society.

Look at it this way. If there are two rotten eggs, would you choose the one that is less rotten and eat it? Presumably you would seek another option and only after you have identified and fixed what is causing the problem in the first place. The point is this: Unless you spend your time deeply contemplating the nature of the society in which you want to live and then devoting your time and energy into creating that society, you will never have it. And you have betrayed yourself.

 I am suggesting that you ponder the dysfunctionality of your society, do some research into the secretive “deep state” (or military-industrial complex or power elite or the 1% or however you wish to describe it) that controls your “republic” with its electoral system designed to delude you into believing that you have a say in governing your nation, and then consider how you want to engage politically and act in accord with your conscience in doing so. It is only by doing this that we will have any chance of getting the society and the world that we want, even if it is beyond our lifetimes (and assuming we can avert extinction at our own hand in the meantime).

In summary, profound change only occurs from the “bottom up” when enough ordinary people take the initiative to remake their own society.

2016 The Year America Realized the Inevitable Result of Constantly Choosing the ‘Lesser of Two Evils

Claire Bernish

Election after election, Americans sat idly by as decent candidates who challenged the status quo were shunned and dismissed by the media as unelectable. All the while, demagogues on power trips were continually thrust into the limelight as the only viable options. Well, the chickens are finally coming home to roost.  

Exactly how nonsensical the 2016 presidential election could get — and how far mainstream media would go to distort facts and significance — received a resounding answer this week, thanks to Wikileaks first massive disclosure of Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s hacked emails and the oh-so-convenient twin reminder from the DNC via the media that Trump said some awfully lewd and disgraceful shit some 12 years ago.

Perhaps Hillary’s perfect track record of fabrication, mendacity, near — if not outright — criminal behavior, and interminable list of scandals should have nullified any integrity for the presidency in the American public’s collective mind, if not landed her behind bars, years ago.

Perhaps Trump’s laughably false reputation as businessman extraordinaire, despite a history replete with scamming, conning, shortchangingfailing to paylawsuits, swindles, bankruptcies, and, oh yeah, those not-at-all worrisome underage rape allegations and the aforementioned statements, from his own mouth, about forcing himself on women against their will, should have prohibited any intimation of hopes for the White House before the thought ever crossed his mind.

Apparently none of these matters occurred to any of the players involved — or, maybe they did — and strategy dictated their timing less than a month prior to the national election because, at this point, it’s too late for America to reverse its idiotic, failed-from-jump-street course toward utter disaster.

We’re not only speeding toward the edge of a perilous cliff, but arguing over who should steer the wheel — leaving no one competent enough available to man the brakes.

It’s additionally entirely possible control of the wheel won’t matter, considering the current driver’s obstinance might first divert us into full-scale world — if not nuclear — war.

Wars the imperialist government of the United States, which has incidentally gone rogue and no longer represents its people, undertook in the name of fighting both the terrorism and terrorists it created and continues to fund — again, with our tax dollars.

On the other hand — though you might not realize, since these headlines don’t sell — we’ve also quietly innovated, organized peaceful resistance, come together despite differences, taken successful stands against callous policies and reckless industries, usurped the mainstream media’s forever-faulty narratives, subverted Big Government, spread awareness, helped save our planet’s flora and fauna from near ruin, and generally effected good works.

Religious Doctrine That “Legalized” Columbus’ Native Genocide Ratified Into US Federal Law

Jay Syrmopoulos

Virtually all American school children are taught about Columbus’ “discovery” as some type of mythical adventure. However, few are aware of the religious doctrine that underpins his taking “possession” of the newly arrived upon land, which has come to be known as the Doctrine of Discovery.
Fewer yet are aware that currently – over five hundred years later – the U.S. government still uses this doctrine to uniformly deny Native Americans’ their rights.

It’s extremely important to note that the heinous acts of brutality and genocide carried out by Columbus and his men against the indigenous people of the Caribbean were fully endorsed and sanctioned by the holy documents of Christendom. These religious texts were used as a justification for the brutal system of colonization imposed upon non-Christian people, whom the church categorized as “brute animals.”

Most of us have been brought up to believe that the United States Constitution was designed to keep church and state apart. Unfortunately, with the Johnson decision, the Christian Doctrine of Discovery was not only written into U.S. law but also became the cornerstone of U.S. Native American policy over nearly the next two centuries.

To penalize a group of people due to their religious belief system reeks of the worst kind of tyrannical oppression. Stripping sovereign nations of most of their lands, the Johnson v. McIntosh ruling stands as one of the most egregious violations of the fundamental human rights of indigenous peoples.

The Doctrine of Discovery, now encoded in U.S. law, has been used to commit one of the largest genocides in human history.

Without this Papal Bull, the U.S. would be forced to reconcile the forced assimilation and wholesale ethnocide it carried out against its Native inhabitants, treaty breaches, theft of Indigenous lands and resources, and the brutal genocide it engaged in through massacres like those that Wounded Knee. The United States has attempted to legally justify these atrocities by hiding behind religion.

Radiating Corruption: The Frightening Science and Politics of Cell Phone Safety

You are strongly advised to turn off all Wi-Fi gadgets inside your home - especially the WiFi on the internet router. Replace all WiFi with wired connections; i.e. for internet connection to router use Ethernet cable.  For telephone use landline voice-over-IP such as the free internet OOMA  service.  Use your cell phone only when absolutely necessary otherwise keep the battery removed.

Guest Writer for Wake Up World
In an article published in the New York Times in January 2016 entitled “At C.D.C., a Debate Behind Recommendations on Cellphone Risk”, author Danny Hakim discusses the controversy surrounding the potential health risks of using cell phones. Hakim writes that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued guidelines recommending “caution in cellphone use”, due to the potentially harmful effects of radiation emitted by the wireless devices on human health. Included in the guidelines was information about reducing exposure among children. Just a few weeks after the CDC’s publication, and amid rising concerns about cell phone safety, the CDC rescinded the advisory completely.
Today, the CDC website takes an ambiguous stance on the issue, stating: “Can using a cell phone cause cancer? There is no scientific evidence that provides a definite answer to that question. Some organizations recommend caution in cell phone use. More research is needed before we know if using cell phones causes health effects.” (1)
Hakim notes several agencies and individuals that have drawn stronger conclusions on the potential risks of such radiation. Among them is the International Agency for Research of Cancer, a branch of the World Health Organization, which listed the radio frequencies emitted by cell phones as a “possible carcinogen” in 2011.(2) Hakim identifies several countries’ health authorities, including, Finland, the United Kingdom and Israel issuing public warnings about the potential hazards of non-ionizing radiation from cell phones.
As one of the foremost organizations tasked with ensuring the health and safety of Americans, it is troubling that the CDC has failed to warn us of the potential dangers of these devices. We find that even a cursory review of the scientific literature reveals a significant body of research that points to the harmful effects of cell phone radiation.
A list of some of the most compelling evidence is provided below, which links cellphone radiation with increased rates of cancers and tumors, infertility and neurological issues, and shows that young children are most at risk of exposure.
Why then, has the CDC – an institution with more than enough resources to thoroughly investigate such issues – failed to take into account the preponderance of evidence suggesting a link between cell phone use and health problems? And how can we explain the CDC’s quick retraction of their guidelines urging the public to be cautious with cell phones 18 months ago? Surely they wouldn’t have created such guidelines unless there was a scientific basis. Right?

The CDC and FCC: Kowtowing to the Wireless Industry

An investigative report published by the watchdog group Environmental Health Trust (EHT) digs deeper into the circumstances surrounding the CDC’s retraction of their guidelines on cell phone radiation exposure. The report, based on 500 pages of internal CDC documents released through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), illuminates key information left of out the New York Times article and points to a cover-up by the CDC. Among the most startling revelations detailed is that immediately after publishing the new guidelines in June 2014 the CDC hired Kenneth Foster as a consultant to assist in the creation of future materials related to “non ionizing radiation matters”. (3) Foster has an established record of conducting research funded by the private wireless industry and has authored a number of studies with results that contradict the notion that children are more susceptible to cell phone radiation than adults.(4)
One such study published by Foster was recently scrutinized by EHT Senior Medical Advisor Robert Morris, MD PhD, and his peers in the journal IEEE. In the paper, the authors highlight the dubious and unscientific methodology used by Foster and his colleague in drawing their conclusions about children absorbing cell phone waves, pointing out “what appears to be a deliberate distortion of the science and a boldfaced effort to downplay potential risks to children using mobile devices.” (5) In addition, the CDC’s internal communications reveal that the agency considered including in their guidelines information about the potential hazards of cell phone towers located near schools, but chose to omit that information.(6)
By all indications, CDC officials aren’t immune to the influence of the cell phone industry, even when the health of Americans is at stake. The role of special interests in shaping government policy on wireless devices seems to extend beyond the CDC. An exposé by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) released in 2013 documented a disturbingly similar case of federal regulatory agencies buckling under pressure from private industry.
The controversy began after the FCC, presumably in response to research demonstrating the dangers of cell phone radio waves, updated their website in November of 2009 to recommend that people “buy a wireless device with lower SAR”, referring to cell phones which emit less radiation.(7) Upon Reviewing FCC documents secured through FOIA, the EWG team discovered that over the next nine months, three meetings were held between FCC staff and wireless companies such as Nokia, AT&T and Motorola as well as Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA), which lobbies on behalf of cell phone giants including Verizon, Sprint, TMobile and Cricket. The topic of discussion at the meetings revolved around the issue of Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), a measurement of how much radiation the body absorbs from wireless devices. (8)
In September 2010, less than a year after the cautionary advice was first posted on the FCC website, the agency revised its language and adopted a dramatically different position on the issue. The revised text stated that:
  • Accordingly, some parties recommend taking measures to further reduce exposure to [radiofrequency] energy. The FCC does not endorse the need for these practices.
  • Some parties recommend that you consider the reported SAR value of wireless devices. However, comparing the SAR of different devices may be misleading. (9)
Once again it appears that our bureaucratic institutions prefer to submit to the whims of corporate lobbyists rather than protect citizens from scientifically-established health hazards. A closer examination of the FCC turns up further evidence of a revolving door between the organization and the telecommunications industry. A prime example of the conflicts of interest within the organization can be found in the current president and CEO of the aforementioned cell phone industry trade group CTIA, Meredith Attwell Baker. Baker served as a commissioner for the FCC from 2009-2011 and before that worked as the CTIA’s director of congressional affairs from 1998-2000. Remarkably, while acting as FCC commissioner in January 2011, Baker voted in favor of Comcast acquiring NBCUniversal, and left the agency just five months later to become Comcast-NBCUniversal’s senior vice president of government affairs.(10) Baker’s long history of hopping the fence between industry insider and government regulator raises serious questions about her loyalties.
Baker isn’t an isolated case. The current chairman heading the FCC, Tom Wheeler, previously worked as the president of the influential lobby group known as National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) and served as the CEO of CTIA for more than a decade. And in a stunning role reversal, former FCC chairman Michael Powell is now President and CEO of NCTA.

A Global Push for Cell Phone Safety

As this alarming lack of US government oversight of wireless devices progresses, we witness governments around the world taking action to reduce wireless radiation exposure in their populations. Currently, the governments of France and Belgium mandate cell phone packages clearly display SAR values. National guidelines in Israel, Austria, and Australia advise reducing exposure to WiFi devices among children. The UK National Health Service recommends keeping phone calls short and keeping the phone away from the body, noting “children are thought to be at higher risk of health implications” (11)
Despite this global rise in awareness about the dangers inherent in our wireless technology, as of January 2016, the FCC website continues to reflect a seemingly dangerous ignorance on the subject, stating that:
Some health and safety interest groups have interpreted certain reports to suggest that wireless device use may be linked to cancer and other illnesses, posing potentially greater risks for children than adults. While these assertions have gained increased public attention, currently no scientific evidence establishes a causal link between wireless device use and cancer or other illnesses. Those evaluating the potential risks of using wireless devices agree that more and longer-term studies should explore whether there is a better basis for RF safety standards than is currently used. (12)
A growing body of independent science shows that the issue of cell phone safety may have massive consequences on the health of our nation, especially our children. If we are to enact measures to protect against this dangerous radiation we must demand full accountability from the CDC and FCC. It is time that Americans stand up to the anti-science corporate profiteers running the show and rein in this invisible danger in our midst.
