Spokane Wired Comments on Wireless & Densified 4G/5G WTF Forum:

As was made abundantly clear by our first speaker, Dr. Robert Olsen, the FCC and the ICNIRP do not acknowledge that public exposure to non-ionizing radiation from Wi-Fi, cell phones, cell towers, smart meters, et al.), affects biology in any way that would be considered a health hazard.

Dr. Robert Olsen’s specialization is Electrical Engineering. Since he is not a Biochemical or Medical Scientist, did not come prepared with cited scientific evidence that evidences the foundation for veracity of ICNIRP or FCC pulsed, data-modulated, Radio-frequency Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR) exposure guidelines. If Dr. Olsen provides any such studies, we will post links, here.

Conversely, Dr. Martin Pall, our second speaker, whose specialties are Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences, cited evidence that non-ionizing radiation does indeed have direct and immediate effects on biology. Dr. Pall cited multiple studies to substantiate his claims, and, in his view, proved that the current FCC safety standards are irrelevant in light of the scientific evidence of the mechanisms that Wireless Radiation affects biology. The cited evidence can be found in Dr. Pall’s Presentation Slides which he has provided to Spokane Wired to share with the public.

At Spokane Wired, we are well aware that our regulatory agencies are allowing the public to be exposed to unnecessary and excessive levels of RF-EMR. Furthermore, we are aware that the FCC and ICNIRP refuse to acknowledge recent scientific evidence such as that discovered in the $30 million, taxpayer funded, National Toxicology Report which found clear evidence of a cancer link with wireless radiation (900 MHz and 1,800 MHz). In light of their refusal to adjust their regulations accordingly, it is clear that these agencies cannot be trusted to work for the public interest.

We recognize that since our regulatory bodies are not working to ensure that the public is safe, we, as citizens, must work together at the local level to protect ourselves and our communities from unnecessary and excessive levels of RF-EMR. We encourage our City Council to take this issue to heart, do their own study of the scientific evidence and discover for themselves the need that we act locally to protect our communities.

A. Densified 4G/5G pulsed, data-modulated, Radio-frequency Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR) and the COVID-19 Pandemic —

Coincidence or causal relationship?

By Martin L. Pall, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences, Washington State University

The two documents referenced below argue that there are reasons to think that Densified 4G/5G RF-EMR is greatly stimulating the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and therefore, an important public health measure would be to power off the densified 4G and 5G antennas and particularly antennas that are in close proximity to our homes, schools, businesses, houses of worship and hospitals.

The first of these documents1 published by Miller et al., covers the impact of 4G/5G RF-EMR on the immune system of the body and also suggests that 4G/5G RF-EMR may also increase the replication of the virus. In both of these ways, 4G/5G RF-EMR may be expected to make the COVID-19 pandemic much worse.

The second of these documents is my own and is derived from a larger document on 4G/5G RF-EMR bio-effects2. It starts with the history of 5G in Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the COVID-19 epidemic. Wuhan is China’s first 5G “smart city” and is the location of China’s first 5G highway where 5G radiation is being used to test self-driving vehicles. Approximately 10,000 5G antennas were installed and activated in Wuhan in 2019, with approximately 75 to 80% of these installed and activated in the last 2-½ months of the year. The epidemic was first detected near the beginning of that 2-½ month period and became vastly more severe, with extremely large increases in numbers of cases and in deaths by the end of 2019. That may, of course be coincidental. The death rate in other parts of China from COVID-19 infections has been substantially lower than that in Wuhan with its unparalleled high numbers of 5G antennas (Xu et al., BMJ 2020; 368:m606) — that, of course, could also be coincidental.

South Korea, which became the site of the worst epidemic outside of China, has large numbers of 5G antennas all over the country. The Milan area of Italy, currently, the worst epicenter in Europe also is a 5G center. The Seattle area, which was the worst area in the U.S. is also a major 5G area. New York City has become the largest epicenter in the US is another 5G site. These non-Chinese epidemic areas are not discussed in my paper, but these findings are accurate. Again, the locations of these epicenters in 5G areas may be coincidental.

Table 1: COVID-19, cases and deaths in four regions of Northern Italy, March 26, 2020

Region # of cases # of deaths Deaths/cases 5G?
Lombardia 34,889 4,861 13.9% yes
Emilia Romagna 10,816 1,174 10.9% no
Piemonte 6,534 449 6.9% no
Veneto 6,935 287 4.1% no

These figures add to the argument that 5G radiation may have a substantial role in exacerbating the COVID-19 pandemic – they are not definitive, however, and we must look to the mechanism of action of EMFs and the evidence that other EMFs produce similar, if less severe effects which are similar to, but less severe than, what we are apparently seeing following 5G exposure.

Electromagnetic fields, including the highly pulsed and therefore highly dangerous 5G millimeter wave radiation, act via activation of voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs). VGCC activation produces five different effects, each of which have roles in stimulating the replication and spread of coronaviruses [1,2]:

  1. Excessive intracellular calcium
  2. Oxidative stress
  3. NF-kappaB elevation
  4. Inflammation
  5. Apoptosis (programmed cell death)

The predominant cause of death in the COVID-19 epidemic, is respiratory failure and each of these five effects also have roles in that, such that each of them is predicted to greatly increase the percent of people dying in this epidemic. It seems highly plausible that 5G radiation is greatly increasing the spread of the epidemic and also the death rate in individuals that are infected.

You may wish to consider all of this in conjunction with the broader findings with regard to the dangers of 5G and other effects apparently produced by 5G exposures.

How then did we get to this state? Many independent scientists, including myself, have argued that there should be no densified 4G/5G rollout until there is extensive biological safety testing of genuine densified 4G/5G radiation — with all of its dangerous modulating pulses. However, the Wireless Industry has refused to get independent densified 4G/5G testing and the FCC and other regulatory agencies have refused to require such testing.

Furthermore, the official RF-EMR “exposure guidelines” which are supposed to protect us from health impacts of RF-EMR exposures have been shown, based on eight different types of highly repeated studies, to fail massively to predict biological effects. The guidelines, therefore, fail to predict safety3. It follows from this that all assurances of safety based on these “exposure guidelines” are fraudulent. Consequently, there is no evidence whatsoever of densified 4G/5G safety and much evidence of lack of such safety.

It is my opinion, therefore, that densified 4G/5G radiation is greatly stimulating the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and also the major cause of death, respiratory failure and, therefore, an important public health measure would be to power off the densified 4G/5G antennas, particularly the 4G/5G so-called "small" cell antennas in close proximity to our homes, schools, businesses, houses of worship and hospitals. I will list some of my professional qualifications following the citations.

The VGCC activation mechanism has been amazingly well accepted in the scientific literature. My first paper on the topic (in 2013) was placed on the Global Medical Discovery web site as one of the top medical papers of 2013. That paper has been cited 256 times according to the Google Scholar database. Most new scientific paradigms are only slowly accepted and this is much, much faster than usual. I have given 59 invited professional talks on this topic in 15 countries, including 4 prestigious keynote addresses. I had been scheduled to give 1 more prestigious keynote address in April (has been postponed because of COVID19). Two of my papers, my neuropsychiatric paper and my Wi-Fi paper, are each described by the publishing journal as being the most often downloaded paper in the history of each journal — stunning scientific interest in both papers.

My recent talks, one sponsored by the Dept. of Engineering and Applied Science at Queens University and the other at the World Congress on Physics in Berlin (where I was given a certificate of recognition) show together that both engineers and physicists are starting to realize the importance of this mechanism.

Slide 01:

Wireless Telecommunications pulsed, data-modulated, Radio-frequency Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR)

  • How RF-EMR Produces Direct Biological Effects,

  • Why the RF-EMR Exposure Guidelines Do Not Predict Biological Effects and Do Not Predict Safety

  • Why Densified 4G/5G RF-EMR Is Especially Dangerous

Slide 02:

Manmade Wireless RF-EMR is generated at a specific frequency, in a specific vector direction, with a specific phase and specific polarity.

Each of these properties is important such that RF-EMR produces much higher electrical forces on electrically charged groups and also produces very high magnetic forces in our bodies, as compared with most naturally-occurring Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs).

Slide 03:

Much of the documentation for my discussion can be found in citations from my safety guideline fraud document →

Slide 04:

Dr. Olsen has stated that some people have argued . . .

. . . that the VGCC mechanism that I have shown to be the main mechanism of action producing non-thermal health effects, cannot be true. That is an accurate statement for three people that I know of.

Why have they come to that conclusion?

They are assuming that the only way that we can get VGCC activation is by depolarization of the plasma membrane. I have argued in four different publications, and many of my talks including the talk in Moscow, Idaho three weeks ago which Dr. Olson attended, that the mechanism is a direct impact of these highly coherent electronically generated EMFs on the voltage sensor which controls the opening of these channels.

If you make a false assumption (which these people are doing) then you come to a false conclusion.

Slide 05:

Dr. Olsen has suggested that there is a consensus that there are no direct bio-effects from RF-EMR or EMFs . . .

. . . but the consensus among independent scientist is just the opposite!

Slides 06-07:

Current US/international RF-EMR exposure guidelines are only based on thermal heating effects,

. . . even though many direct bio-effects occur at levels many orders of magnitude lower than that which would measurably heat tissue.

Examples of direct bio-effects include:

  1. Lowered fertility (25 different reviews). Changes in structure of testis, ovaries; lowered sperm count, motility, quality; lowered number of follicles (eggs), increased spontaneous abortion, lowered levels of 3 sex hormones, lowered libido

  2. Neurological/Neuropsychiatric effects (29 reviews) Insomnia, fatigue, depression, headache, lack of concentration/cognitive dysfunction, anxiety/stress agitation, memory dysfunction, tinnitus, etc. Major brain structure changes seen in animals.

  3. Cellular DNA damage, 3 types (24 reviews) Single & double DNA breaks, oxidized bases (8-HOdG); cause both cancer and germline mutations

  4. Apoptosis, programmed cell death (15 reviews) Lead to both reproductive and neurodegenerative effects

  5. Oxidative stress, free radical damage (25 reviews)

  6. Endocrine (hormonal) effects (15 different reviews). Both non-steroid and steroid hormones systems affected; in some cases EMFs can produce both increased and decreased hormone activity under different conditions.

  7. Excessive intracellular calcium [Ca2+]i (16 reviews) Underlying cause of almost everything else.

  8. Cardiac effects via electrical control of heart (9 reviews). Tachycardia; chronic exposures can lead to bradycardia; both cause arrhythmia; also get heart palpitations.

  9. Cancer (38 reviews) Increases initiation of carcinogenesis, tumor promotion and progression, including increased tissue invasion and metastasis

TOTAL of 197 bodies of evidence, each demonstrating a specific type of non-thermal effect.
