Dear Readers,

An increasing number of search engines implement algorithms which are negatively biased against independent news and analysis websites such as Global Research. Our website gets filtered out from their results, making our articles harder to find, which reduces website traffic and, therefore, website revenue.

‘Telecom Industry Did No Research on Health Impacts of 5G’ – Global Research

telecom-industry-did-no-research-on-health-impacts-of-5g-8211-global-research

India plans to begin 5G trials by 2020, but experts and industry stand at odds over its impact on human health and environment. The fifth generation wireless network promises to be 50 times faster than its predecessor — 4G. Down To Earth talked to a series of experts on the issue

***

Paul Heroux, professor of toxicology and health effects of electromagnetism at Department of Surgery, McGill University Health Centre, Canada, speaks with Down To Earth about adoption of 5G will be detrimental towards people’s health.

Akshit Sangomla: What are the primary health impacts of using 5G mobile network and is there enough scientific evidence to prove that these impacts will take place?

Paul Heroux: All artificial electromagnetic radiation is a problem because biological systems are not adapted to it. Since exposure has increased progressively and started at a time when disease detection was primitive, those impacts went largely unnoticed. The health evidence has been there, but ignored for decades. 5G will promote cell phone use and therefore human exposures to phones and base stations. The higher frequencies will concentrate the radiation in a smaller portion of the human body because of smaller penetration depth. These frequencies also need more intensity to allow penetration through obstacles. The exposures will be more concentrated over time because of the beam-forming (5-10°) that is specific to 5G. On the specific issue of cancer, all major animal studies, including Chou (1992), Repacholi (1997) and NTP-Ramzzini (2019) confirm carcinogenic action of electromagnetic radiation (EMR).

AS: Countries like UK, US and even India are pushing for faster adoption of 5G? Have the concerns around health impacts been resolved?

PH: Industry has performed no health studies on 5G. They do not need to as they have a stranglehold on legislation that allows them to arbitrarily place base stations where they went on streets close to homes and people have no recourse whatsoever. Dominique Bellepomme, an oncologist in Paris, calls this a “crime against humanity”. As usual, to push adoption of the next update, industry represents that 5G is a revolution, while in fact it is only an expansion of wireless. Most of the applications presented to promote it are “vapourware”, things that either already exist or will never see implementation.

Earthworm Research Spurs Farmers to Act – Global Research

earthworm-research-spurs-farmers-to-act-8211-global-research

A study of England’s farmland has found key earthworm types are rare or absent in two out of five fields and has led to the majority of farmers affected vowing to change the way they farm.

The results indicate widespread, historical over-cultivation, and may explain observed declines in other wildlife, such as the song thrush, that feed on these worms.

The #60minworms project was the first comprehensive worm survey concentrating solely on farmland and was carried out by farmers themselves – 57 percent of whom said they would now change their soil management practices as a result.

The scientist behind the survey, Dr Jackie Stroud, a NERC Soil Security Fellow at Rothamsted Research, said:

“Earthworms are sensitive and responsive to soil management which makes them an ideal soil health indicator.  The aim of this research was to find a baseline of farmland earthworm populations that would be useful and used by farmers to assess soil health now and in the future.”

Awesome example of citizen science making a difference. The results of Jackie Stroud’s worm survey published today, suggesting huge savings could be made in farmland soil health monitoring.

Biologists categorise earthworms by ecological role – with surface dwelling and deep burrowing worms the types most sensitive to farming practices, whilst the topsoil worms are generally unaffected by over-cultivation.

Earthworms perform a number of useful ‘ecosystem services’, and high numbers of earthworms have been linked to enhanced plant productivity.

This new citizen science project published today in the journal PLOS One, has revealed most fields have good earthworm biodiversity – meaning an abundance of all three types of earthworms were seen.

In Spring 2018, the average field had 9 earthworms in every spadeful of soil, with top fields having three times that number. One in 10 fields had high earthworm numbers of more than 16 worms per spadeful.

However, the study also revealed that 42 percent of fields had poor earthworm biodiversity – meaning either very few or none of the surface dwelling and deep burrowing worms were seen.

The Dirty War on Syria: Washington, Regime Change and Resistance (PDF)

Author: Tim Anderson

ISBN Number: 978-0-9737147-7-7

Year: 2016

Product Type: PDF File

The Dirty War on Syria has relied on a level of mass disinformation not seen in living memory. In seeking ‘regime change’ the big powers sought to hide their hand, using proxy armies of ‘Islamists’, demonising the Syrian Government and constantly accusing it of atrocities. In this way Syrian President Bashar al Assad, a mild-mannered eye doctor, became the new evil in the world.

As western peoples we have been particularly deceived by this dirty war, reverting to our worst traditions of intervention, racial prejudice and poor reflection on our own histories. This book tries to tell its story while rescuing some of the better western traditions: the use of reason, ethical principle and the search for independent evidence.

The Globalization of War: America’s “Long War” against Humanity (PDF)

Author: Michel Chossudovsky

ISBN Number: 978-0-9879389-0-9

Year: 2015

Product Type: PDF File

America’s hegemonic project in the post 9/11 era is the “Globalization of War” whereby the U.S.-NATO military machine —coupled with covert intelligence operations, economic sanctions and the thrust of “regime change”— is deployed in all major regions of the world. The threat of pre-emptive nuclear war is also used to black-mail countries into submission.

This “Long War against Humanity” is carried out at the height of the most serious economic crisis in modern history.

It is intimately related to a process of global financial restructuring, which has resulted in the collapse of national economies and the impoverishment of large sectors of the World population.

The year 2018 was one dominated with several dramatic twists and turns on the international stage.

At the start of the year, we witnessed nuclear sabre-rattling between U.S. President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. There was the poisoning (and recovery) of Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury UK, in which the Russian government was implicated. Israeli Defense Forces’ violent attacks against demonstrators at the Gaza-Israel border wall. The May 8 withdrawal by the United States from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and subsequent re-imposition of sanctions against Iran. The turbulent Mid-Term U.S. elections. The Khashoggi killing. The Central American migrant caravan. The election of Jair Bolsanaro, considered by many to be a full-blown fascist, to the leadership of one of the world’s largest economies: Brazil. A new North American trade deal to replace NAFTA. An apparent assassination attempt on the life of the Venezuelan President, and massive migration of people fleeing the country in the wake of a humanitarian crisis. And a Christmas present for many anti-war Americans in the form of a promised withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria.

Of course, there is also the never-ending melodrama surrounding allegations of Russian collusion with Trump in the lead up to the 2016 presidential election.

The focus of this week’s instalment of the Global Research News Hour, and a general theme of this radio show, is to look at the big stories behind the attention-grabbing headlines. The hope is that a look at bigger picture issues can provide some platform for meaningful political discussion and action, rather than leave members of the global community distracted and spell-bound.

A regular annual feature since the show’s inception,
