The two sides of science

Before we lead into the article that appeared in the Herald Sun about wireless armour underwear, the question we need to all ask ourselves is which side of science do we trust.

On one hand we are assured by industry and government departments that there are no dangers associated with exposure to wireless radiation from devices such as mobile phones, smart meters, tablets, laptops and other devices, some of which we carry close to our bodies everyday.

On the other hand we are cautioned about the dangers of wireless devices, with many scientists now linking the effects of microwave radiation to blood cell mutation when exposed to radio frequency emitting devices, as shown here and here.

So which side has a vested interest and is fully funded by industry?  You decide.

As you will read in the Herald Sun article reprinted below, there is now a strong link between fertility, low sperm count and RF exposure:

Underpants blocks radiation from devices

DESCRIBED by Richard Branson as “underpants for superheroes”, the Wireless Armour underwear contains a mesh of pure silver woven into the fabric that shields against 99.9 per cent of electromagnetic radiation, which is emitted from devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops, and has been linked to fertility problems by scientists.

Inventor Joseph Perkins said that the growing popularity of smart, but radiation-emitting devices prompted him to take action.

“Like so many people, my smartphone and laptop use has increased dramatically in recent years, which made me realise that I was exposing myself to large amounts of electromagnetic radiation, mostly centred on my groin,” he said.

“With my physics background I knew there must be a way to shield from electromagnetic radiation using a simple solution.”

“Wireless Armour has been tested by an industry leader in wireless shielding and the results show that our fabric shields against 99.9 per cent of the radiation emitted between 100MHz to 2.6GHz.

“Put simply, this covers the entire range of radiation emitted by wireless devices, from voice and text through to 4G and Wi-Fi, almost everything is blocked.”

The silver in the Wireless Armour smart underpants disrupts the flow of electromagnetic radiation as silver is a conductor of electricity, and distributes it evenly around the mesh.

It is estimated that 70 million couples are affected by infertility worldwide, and according to a 2014 study by the University of Exeter there is a strong link between exposure to electromagnetic radiation and a lower sperm count.

    DON’T WORRY ABOUT
    TOBACCO IS SAFE – says the Industry
    DDT IS SAFE – says the Industry
    ASBESTOS IS SAFE – says the Industry
    CONTERGAN / THALIDOMIDE IS SAFE – says the Industry
    RADIATION IS SAFE says the industry

    SMARTMETERS ARE SAFE says the industry
    Why don’t you People believe the Industry ????

    Not the only danger though!

    If EMF radiation isn’t a risk then why did Telstra issue a warning about prolonged exposure. The following message was sent on the 27th July 2015…

    “A reminder from Telstra, for information on mobile use, electromagnetic energy and tips to reduce exposure, visit http://telstra.com.au/mobiletips

    I wonder if they are dumb enough to realise that even though their groins are protected, that EMF could get through the open ended parts of the undies such as through the flesh of the leg holes and the torso. Plus, it’s not exactly revolutionary. There are quite a few sites which sell EMF protective clothing using metal laced fabrics. There are some downsides to them but, to those who are suffering from the effects of EHS or EMF related health issues then these things can be a boon.

    Stupid physicists.

    You would also need a steel balaclava to protect your head. Maybe you could dress up in a full set of chain mail just to use your computer. Or maybe you could just plug an internet cord in and not dress like a freak. I have my doubts about whether metal will fully block wireless exposure. The house I live in now has a metal cladding and if anything it makes my symptoms worse. Wasn’t here a paper commissioned by Henry Ford on the subject of RF exposure which concluded that shielding doesn’t work due to harmonic effects?

    This article leads to a bigger question, and one which “science” supposedly strives for: what is the truth? Regrettably, for all of our definitions and studies about what constitutes science, and how well it moves us towards an understanding of truth, we are left with a nebulous and highly variable definition of what the practice entails. This is because the very definition of science is something that is mutated by the environment in which it exists. And scientific practice is just as malleable.

    Regrettably, vested interests, be they personal cognitive, professional or socioeconomic and commercial, all influence our understanding, our definition and tolerance of what is proper scientific conduct and what is valid truth. After completing post-graduate studies in science and technology, I can still only say that whilst truth is an immutable and real thing, our efforts to ‘get there’ as a society are so fallible and corruptible as to be only useful as a field of variable concepts–be as they may incoherent, contradictory, and riddled with imperfection. From this potpourri we must yield our own truths, via the evaluation of our individual cumulative conceptions of reality and truth.

    Even more regrettably, we are not always free to make our own truths from this soup of options, and there is an increasing level of both ignorance and nescience possible amidst our information age’s “tower of babel”, via the lack of our own personal exposure to actual truth. Suppression of scientific and technical knowledge, mass media promulgation of commercially favourable concepts of what is reality, and now the insidious hand of governmental intervention into what is approved as conceivable, are factors in our “ontological environment” which propel us towards the opposite of truth. These are truly becoming Orwellian times that we live in, where black is white and false is true. The greatest violation of truth is perpetrated by those who succumb to the (small ‘s’) self / ego-identified / lack of care for others and wholly egocentric model of behaviour, who put their own or their profession and industry interests before truth, embracing the activity of deceit in order for self advancement. To the extent that we all embrace this model of self-servitude over the care for society more generally, so to are we damaging the path towards truth and a more egalitarian society.

    And yet all is not black–and “human nature” is never to be perceived of as wholly self-concerned, manipulative and greedy, but rather an outcome of environmental programming–the computer analogy being “garbage in, garbage out” (and the inverse). I see in the environment countless individuals who step out of the mindless consumption mindset and seek to actively help others. Simply choose your path of learning and hit YouTube: we can all witness those countless individuals that are acting purely from a basis of Agape (from the classical Greek, the highest form of love, to mankind, above that of ‘philos’ and ‘eros’), to bring us help and truth in our lives. Yes, there are the commercially motivated sharks in the mix, that are taken by the small ‘s’ self motivation–just like the soup of variable data that we are presented via “scientific knowledge”. But the sheer quantity of those individuals who are patently not so, is heartening and lends me faith that all is not lost, in the search for truth and the raising of humanity from the debased, ignorant and highly imperfect level where it is now. We all have our job to do here, if we are ethical and seeking the improvement of humanity.

    One thing for certain is that we must vigilantly guard the tools of the information age and allow the freedom of expression and mass publication to remain, if we are to remain free to access our own best conception of “truth”.

      Hi Michael,
      I like your comments but the problem is that those “individuals who step out of the mindless consumption mindset and seek to actively help others” also get manipulated, targeted and diverted. If they don’t understand how the world works, who runs it, what the want and how they manipulate the masses or they believe in myths such as the TV is there to inform you or that the government will do your thinking for you, then these people still go in the wrong direction. As they say, good intentions pave the road to hell.
      As a person who cares deeply about the environment, I’m beginning to have my doubts about those in charge of the environmentalist movement. They don’t acknowledge the wide-scale geoengineering programs that are so obviously going on. Geoengineering is causing some of the extreme weather patterns which are being attributed to climate change. Also, it’s a bit hard to believe that global warming can cause widespread drought when warming increases humidity and increases rainfall. Climate change treaties to be signed in the future will override sovereignty and slap big taxes on us which countries in Africa, for instance, can’t afford. I used to believe in climate change but now I smell a rat.
      Have a look at http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/. The guy who runs this website does believe in climate change but exposes the massive lies people are being told about geoengineering being a future prospect. It frightens me, because if the power structure is willing to do something this criminal, if the system is that corrupt, what hope do we have of not being microwaved to death by wireless technology and making the government do its job in reforming exposure standards,
      I agree with you about internet freedom – if we can’t find information we can all too easily be manipulated.

    The stupid and/or those who stand to gain will conveniently ignore the dangers associated with EMR.
