The WHO cover-up on the truth about wireless radiation

Author, former World Health Organization (WHO) staffer and brain-tumour survivor, Olga Sheean, has launched a video on WHO’s cover-up of the truth about wireless radiation.

In early 2017, SSMA covered Sheean’s earlier call to WHO for action and accountability.  WHO did not reply.

Sheean once again points out in The WHO cover-up that is costing us the Earth the gross failings of WHO’s International EMF Project, a unit which instead of promoting the development of safe standards, is “deliberately hiding the truth, misinforming the public and devising utterly meaningless safety standards based on unfounded science”.  Little wonder, when one considers that it is “also receiving funds from – and is staffed by personnel who have worked for – the very industry from which it is meant to protect us”.

With the advent of 5G, the stakes have dramatically escalated.  Defying all logic, “WHO is actively facilitating the global deployment of 5G”.  Instead of tightening exposure limits, “WHO is collaborating with ICNIRP – the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection – to relax its already dangerously inadequate standards”.  ICNIRP is the body that the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) has chosen to blindly follow; the Australian standard for radiofrequencies is based on ICNIRP’s 1998 Guidelines.

Sheean implores all of us to stop supporting the industry that is harming us.  The planned launch of over 20,000 5G satellites in the coming two years “will be more than our bodies can handle”.  She points out that industry or governments have no motivation to change direction unless we reduce the demand for harmful wireless technologies.  Sheean states that “We must hold ourselves accountable for our choices and we must hold decision-makers responsible for their cover-up of the truth”.

An Open Letter To ARPANSA In Response To Their Media Statement

Recently the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) – the Australian Government body responsible for the standards and guidelines regulating the rollout for 5G in Australia – published Misinformation about Australia’s 5G network.

(To publish such a statement, ARPANSA must be feeling the heat from community backlash and the growing volume of evidence delineating the negative biological and health effects of electromagnetic radiation.)

In response to the ARPANSA statement, an Open Letter to ARPANSA concludes with Professor Martin Pall’s summarisation that:

“With 100% consistency, ARPANSA avoids all of the strongest available science in this area.

With 100% consistency, ARPANSA has produced a stunningly biased document, whose positions are repeatedly and consistently contradicted by the strongest science and by large numbers of independent scientists.

With 100% consistency, ARPANSA has failed to protect the health and safety of the people of Australia.

With 100% consistency, ARPANSA has protected the economic interests of the telecommunications industry.”

Petition | Ban the 5G network in Australia

Dear Minister please ensure that 5G technology is thoroughly and independently tested for potential long-term adverse health effects before it is rolled out in Australia. The health effect issue of 5G is potentially very controversial as the communications industry is massive and 5G technology will be quite pervasive, but its long-term health effects on humans are largely unknown.

Why is this important?

Thorough and independent testing of 5G technology is crucial before this technology is rolled out in Australia. Current safety limits are insufficient. Apart from the genuine threat of it being carcinogenic, there are numerous health ailments suspected to be caused by exposure to radiation emitted by 5G transmitters. Health is more important than having a faster Internet.

There is currently an overwhelming amount of support to ban 5G due to similar concerns, not only from doctors and scientists, but in far greater numbers from people who have been injured by their mobile phones or by mobile phone towers, and from the general public. More than 350 environmental and health organisations and 13,000 individuals from all walks of life, from at least 96 countries, have just signed but one petition I know of out of which is amongst thousands of petitions that are currently running to stop 5G also. ( is where you will find these particular signatories.)

The 5G dilemma continues

Even though 5G network will provide a much faster connection than 4G, a section of health experts believes that the hazards which may be caused by the updated service are unknown, and sometimes it may turn potentially dangerous.

It should be noted that various research conducted on mobile phone radiations have fetched mixed results. Even though many studies have ruled out the possibility of health hazards due to mobile phone radiation exposure, some extensive studies have hinted that older wireless service generations may result in various types of cancers, heart disorders, and reproductive issues. However, the health hazards which may arise due to short radiations of 5G is hardly been studied.

5G connection makes use of millimetre waves (MMWs) to transmit data, rather than microwaves which are being used in previous generation networks.

Putting the entire globe at risk?

Dr Joel M. Moskowitz PhD ( ), a public health professor at the University of California, Berkeley reveals that millimetre waves could pose serious health hazards among the general public. In an exclusive talk with Daily Mail Online, Joel Moskowitz revealed that the fifth generation cellular technology is experimenting on the health of all species on our planet.

“The deployment of 5G, or fifth generation cellular technology, constitutes a massive experiment on the health of all species. Since skin contains capillaries and nerve endings, MMW bio-effects may be transmitted through molecular mechanisms by the skin or through the nervous system. 5G will use high-band frequencies, or millimetre waves, that may affect the eyes, the testes, the skin, the peripheral nervous system, and sweat glands,” told Moskowitz to Daily Mail Online.

The health expert also added that millimetre waves used in 5G networks will make many pathogens resistant to antibiotics.

Please support this petition if you care.

The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life

Activist, author and researcher, Arthur Firstenberg, writes in The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life with devastating honesty about the unfolding human rights and environmental emergency unleashed as a result of our deadly embrace of electrical technology.

Spanning humans’ initial foray into harnessing electricity, through to our microwave-fuelled leap into the abyss, this book is a tour de force.  By turns riveting, confronting, yet remaining rigorously scientific, The Invisible Rainbow, to quote renowned environmental health expert Prof David O. Carpenter MD, PhD, is a ‘remarkable contribution’ and one that is ‘easily readable and provocative while being entertaining’.

The Invisible Rainbow is available from the Cellular Phone Task Force’s website at:  For orders outside of the U.S. and Canada, go to the Add to Cart button towards the top of the webpage.

The Invisible Rainbow is a hardcover book weighing in at a hefty 918 grams so it is worthwhile investigating the shipping cost prior to purchasing.  This can be done online by choosing the country followed by the shipping method after following the links to the PayPal Guest Checkout page.  As shipping costs are calculated by order (up to 10 copies), ordering multiple copies brings down the individual price per book.  So it might be worthwhile to team up with a few friends and order multiple copies!

Proceeds from sales of The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life are the main source of funding driving the International Appeal to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space campaign.  Although the Appeal stands on its own, Firstenberg’s book provides us with the larger historical and scientific picture.

Health Australia Party policy on EMR

SSMA and its members have approached a number of political parties in an effort to secure policies that reduce public exposure to the harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation (EMR).

It seems that for the forthcoming Federal election on 18th May, the Health Australia Party (HAP) is the only party to have a policy on EMR – and a very good one at that!

If you haven’t yet cast your vote, you might like to review the HAP’s EMR Pollution policy.  This is articulated in code 3.3.1 of the HAP Full Policies document available on this webpage.

The current version of the policy states that:

“The HAP supports the following initiatives which are needed due to the changing electromagnetic environment in which we live.

(a) Adopting the precautionary approach regarding exposure to electromagnetic fields;

(b) Designing, building and wiring buildings so as to reduce exposure to electromagnetic fields;

(c) Requiring new radiation-emitting technologies, including 5G, to be demonstrated to be safe for all members of society before their introduction to the market/rollout across Australia;

(d) Requiring the Australian standard for radiation protection (RPS3) to be updated to accommodate new research showing harmful biological effects of non-heating levels of exposure;

(e) Requiring an Australian standard for power frequency electromagnetic fields that reduces public exposure to the 4 mG associated with the doubling of childhood leukemia and classified as a Class 2B carcinogen (current exposure level is 2000 mG);

(f) Requiring all radiation-emitting devices to carry the notice: ‘This device emits radiofrequency radiation. Use with caution’;

(g) Requiring all research be undertaken by independent researchers;

(h) A public education campaign informing people about safer technology use.”

The HAP also released an ‘Official Statement on Electromagnetic Radiation & 5G’ on 27th April 2019.  The link for the document is:

The Health Australia Party is indeed worthy of your number 1 vote in the Senate.

“Self-serving nonsense”: Why smart meters and the energy industry failed Australia

Gavin Dietz, “energy insider” and global executive of Landis+Gyr; the world’s largest manufacturer of smart meters, writes:

“…in reality, smart meters have failed hugely to deliver on the perceived promise that accompanied their global promotion and rollout in the early-2000s and since.

Today it’s become common to hear so-called ‘smart meters’ being condemned for actually being ‘dumb’. In the age of the smartphone, they are a clunky reminder of a bygone tech era.

Early notions that smart meters would be used as a key enabler for emissions reductions through energy efficiency and renewable energy have faded. They’ve actually been a bit player, at best, when compared to the transformative success of solar photovoltaics, wind farm technologies, energy efficiency programs, and low-emission products such as LED lighting systems.

In fact, depressingly, they mainly are being used to prolong the old energy order, protecting legacy energy companies and metering manufacturers alike, and keeping business and household electricity consumers at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to the power of data.

The consumer-empowering marvel of the internet era has been blocked when it comes to the electricity sector, because, even if consumers officially own their smart meter data — which they do — they can’t control it nor even access it in useful and timely ways.

This isn’t how it was meant to be. At least, it isn’t how the people I worked with in the mid-2000s anticipated the smart meter story unfolding.

As the Australian-based investment group Bayard Capital, we went around the world buying up 14 smart meter manufacturers, rolled them all up into Landis+Gyr, then ultimately sold the lot to Japan’s Toshiba in 2011 for a successful exit valued at $US2.3 billion.

We also promoted smart meter rollouts for Australia, and globally, including seeing tens of millions installed in post-global financial crisis America to help to stimulate the economy; and nearly three million across Victoria – a mandatory rollout that many came to see as an expensive debacle, which killed off any plans for the whole nation to do the same.”

The controversary over 5G is examined in a new paper by Don Maisch PhD

In his recent paper Are community concerns over the 5G network rollout based on unfounded anxiety or valid evidence?”, Don Maisch PhD writes “The high number of small cells needed for an effective 5G network is causing community disquiet and that, combined with many scientific unknowns about the possible biological effects of prolonged exposure to mm waves, is resulting in increasing community opposition in Australia and internationally”.

In addition to referring to Australian reports regarding the increasing concern about 5G, Maisch gives a sampler of growing international opposition to 5G network rollouts:

In 2017 an international 5G Appeal was launched by scientists and doctors who are calling for the EU to halt the roll out of 5G due to serious potential health effects from the technology. As of April 24, 2019, 231 scientists and medical doctors have signed the appeal.[i]

March 24, 2019: Portland Oregon city officials in the US stated their opposition to the installation of 5G networks around the city, supported by the mayor and two commissioners. The city officials considered that 5G health risks were not well enough understood to warrant installations.[ii]

March 28, 2019: Florence, Italy, applied the precautionary principle by refusing permission for 5G infrastructure and referring to “the ambiguity and the uncertainty of supranational bodies and private bodies (like ICNIRP)”, which “have very different positions from each other, despite the huge evidence of published studies”.[iii]

March 28, 2019: The Roman district “XII Municipality of Rome” voted against allowing 5G trials, with other districts expected to follow. Other motions to stop 5G are expected in the four regional councils, one provincial council and other municipal councils of Italy.[iv]

April 1, 2019: Plans for a pilot project to provide high-speed 5G wireless internet in Brussels have been halted due to fears for the health of citizens. Environment Minister Céline Fremault said that “The people of Brussels are not guinea pigs whose health I can sell at a profit. We cannot leave anything to doubt”.[v]

April 4, 2019: The House of Representatives of the Netherlands expressed its concern over the possible health risks of radiation from the new 5G network. Political parties want to know as a matter of urgency what the dangers are before 5G is rolled out on a large scale.[vi]

April 5, 2019: The California Supreme Court Justices unanimously upheld a 2011 San Francisco ordinance requiring telecommunications companies to get permits before placing small cell antennas on city infrastructure.[vii]

April 8, 2019: A petition asking the German Parliament to stop the award of 5G frequencies has reached 54,643 signatures, surpassing the quorum, according to an environmental campaign group called ‘Diagnose: Funk’. The German Parliament may decide to suspend the procedure to award 5G frequencies based on “scientifically justified doubts about the safety of this technology”, according to the petition.[viii]

April 9, 2019: Switzerland’s 3rd largest region, Canton of Vaud, adopted a resolution calling for a moratorium on 5G antennas until the publication of a report on 5G by the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment.[ix] Other cantons may follow with further moratoriums.[x]

April 11, 2019: Geneva adopted a motion for a moratorium on 5G, calling on the Council of State to request WHO to monitor independent scientific studies to determine any possible harmful effects of 5G.[xi]

April 20, 2019: Switzerland announced that it will monitor 5G health risks as a result of a pushback from citizens who claim that 5G emissions present dire health risks.[xii] Four cantons have now stopped 5G networks, Jura, Geneva, Vaud and Neuchâtel. Comprising 1.5 million people. However, the majority state-owned Swisscom defied these cantons by activating 5G stations in 102 locations by upgrading existing antennas installed for previous generations of wireless technology.[xiii],[xiv]

In part Maisch concludes: The assurances of a complete absence of risk from 5G networks coming from these experts is not reflected in what is known about the many uncertainties which exist with 5G technology and speaks more about their own ignorance than that of concerned communities.
