Health Executive Dies from Brain Tumor After Spending Six Hours a Day on His Mobile Phone

Ian Phillips, who spent six hours on his mobile phone
daily and was told he had a lemon-sized growth in his
brain, has died after a six-year battle with cancer.
Dear public, you are being warned! 
New research (Feb. 2017) suggests long-term use of cell phones is linked to a significantly higher risk of developing a brain tumor. The study shows a 33% increased risk for brain tumors for mobile phone use of 10 years or longer (or 1,640 or more hours in lifetime). This could be your fate if you continue to ignore these warnings:

Health executive dies from brain tumour after spending SIX hours a day on his mobile phone

Ian Phillips vowed to beat the disease – which he believed was caused by radiation exposure

A MAN who spent six hours a day on his mobile phone has died from a brain tumour – which he believed was caused by radiation exposure.

Ian Phillips, 44, was told he had a growth the size of a lemon in his brain six years ago.

The health executive vowed to beat the disease – but tragically lost his battle after spending months campaigning about the potential dangers of mobile phones.

5G Explained: The Next-Gen Data Tech Is Coming

"Higher frequencies (and faster speeds) mean shorter distances - that in turn means antenna technology is going to have to be upgraded, and we're probably going to need more antennas too. We might see transmitters built into base stations and street furniture (like lampposts and road signs)."

Leaving 3G and 4G behind - it's the next generation data for your phone

5G is coming to a cell tower near you faster than you might think: with speeds that could eventually hit hundreds of times those of 4G, it promises to transform the way we communicate with each other and with our devices once again. Very early trials are underway, and we've more details below. We can't give you any exact statistics about 5G yet, because the standard has yet to be defined: researchers and authorities are hoping to have a 5G specification in place in the next couple of years. Radio communications experts from the 193 member countries of the United Nations will be setting down the technical requirements in 2016.

What Will Happen When They Know?

"What will happen the day when Dr. Priscilla Chan, a pediatrician, reads the American Academy of Pediatrics latest recommendations to reduce wireless exposure for children?"  

She and her husband, Mark Zuckerberg, have pledged $3 billion to fighting disease... Sean Parker, who was president of Facebook when the company was still a start-up, said he would give $250 million to six cancer centers nationwide.  (See 2016 New York Times article.)

What Will Happen When They Know?
clearlightventures.com, 22 February 2017

What happens when a false belief collides with reality? This is the question of our time. Do you shift course and change or double down or continue on as though nothing has happened? Does wealth and power allow you to change the laws of physics or biology? What happens when the majority of people have accepted a reality and you are now not only wrong, but in the minority? What happens when denial is no longer an option?

It’s easy to point to politicians and business leaders who are challenged by reality. It’s much harder when this situation appears in your own life. What happens when a reality undermines your identity in the world? Will you listen, even when the answer is something you don’t want to hear? Will you be able to change your mind, even though you have invested your time and money? Will you take a stand to prevent others from being harmed? Will you resist change even when harm to yourself is inevitable? Or have you even lost the capacity to change at all?

"High capacity lithium ion batteries, like those used in smartphones, can be prone to catching fire if they are damaged or have defective components. Again, we don't know if that's what happened in this particular instance, but it's not the first time an iPhone has reportedly caught fire."

A dramatic video of a smoking iPhone 7 Plus is really freaking Twitter out.

Brianna Olivas says her rose gold iPhone 7 Plus exploded and began smoking Wednesday morning when her boyfriend grabbed his phone and began recording. The video, which Olivas shared on Twitter later that day, shows smoke pouring out of one side of the phone and the iPhone's case melting away.

Women actively infected with genital herpes during early pregnancy had twice the odds of giving birth to a child later diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), according to a study by scientists at the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health and the Norwegian Institute of Public Health.

The study is the first to provide immunological evidence on the role of gestational infection in autism, reporting an association between maternal anti-herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2) antibodies and risk for ASD in offspring. Results appear in mSphere, a journal of the American Society for Microbiology.

"We believe the mother's immune response to HSV-2 could be disrupting fetal central nervous system development, raising risk for autism," says lead author Milada Mahic, a post-doctoral research scientist with the Center for Infection and Immunity and the Norwegian Institute of Public Health.

Michigan: Disabled Veteran Disputes Bill Increase, Smart Meter Reading

Disabled veteran disputes bill increase, smart meter reading

by Elisse Ramey, abc12.com, 17 February 2017

GRAND BLANC TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJRT) - (2/17/17) - A disabled veteran is locked in a dispute over his utility bill - and fears he could ultimately lose his house. We've been hearing people talk about fluctuations in their bills since smart meters have been installed.

Edward Vernier and his wife, Tammy, say their energy bills aren't t adding up.

"Me being a hundred percent disabled vet, living on a fixed income, they're just starving us to death. There's no way we could be using that much energy," he said.

He says their bill is on average $270.00. On a budget plan, they pay about $150.00 a month, but now he says their bill is around $470.00.

Michigan 'Smart Meter' Hearing Elicits Health Fears

Lansing — Michiganians packed a state House panel hearing Tuesday to voice their concerns with so-called “smart meters” that transport utility usage information directly to companies.

Many residents who testified in the nearly filled committee room said they worry that the new utility meters hurt their health and invade their privacy because they have no say in whether the company can install the particular kind of meter at their home unless they pay extra fees. Utility representatives countered that studies have shown their concerns are unfounded.

Jasmine Early of Sterling Heights said she was infuriated that DTE Energy sent workers onto her property without her permission. She urged others to believe people who testified before the committee about alleged health problems they believe to be associated with the electronic smart meters.

“I don’t want it in my house,” Early said. “We are suffering health issues. Who is gonna help us? You can mock us, you can call us fools. But we are the ones who are suffering.”

Plant and Animal Electromagnetic Sensitivity

Bats respond to very weak magnetic fields.
Animal and plants do not experience Electrophobia... This article has links to articles and studies on the electromagnetic sensitivity of plants, animals, and marine life as recent as 2016.

Science: Plant and Animal Electromagnetic Sensitivity
electrosensitivity.co

Introduction

Animal Electromagnetic Sensitivity long known:
Animal sensitivity to electromagnetic exposure has been known as long as human electromagnetic sensitivity. The biological effects of the electric eel were known in ancient times. From the 17th century scientists studied how electricity and magnetism affected both animals and humans. Many modern studies depend on animal or plant research to establish biological pathways before moving on to human studies to verify low-level effects of electromagnetic exposure.

Animal and plants do not experience Electrophobia:
One great advantage of animal and plant studies is that there is no likelihood of confusion between real Electromagnetic Sensitivity and psychological Electrophobia, since animals and plants cannot be conditioned by a cognitive, as opposed to a behaviorally conditioned fear, and cannot therefore suffer from a 'Nocebo' effect, although anyway studies show that the 'Nocebo' effect is not part of real human Electromagnetic Sensitivity.

Yale University Study Shows Association Between Vaccines and Brain Disorders

Yale University Study Shows Association Between Vaccines and Brain Disorders

A team of researchers from the Yale School of Medicine and Penn State College of Medicine have found a disturbing association between the timing of vaccines and the onset of certain brain disorders in a subset of children.

Analyzing five years' worth of private health insurance data on children ages 6-15, these scientists found that young people vaccinated in the previous three to 12 months were significantly more likely to be diagnosed with certain neuropsychiatric disorders than their non-vaccinated counterparts.

This new study, which raises important questions about whether over-vaccination may be triggering immune and neurological damage in a subset of vulnerable children (something parents of children with autism have been saying for years), was published in the peer-reviewed journal Frontiers in Psychiatry, Jan. 19.
