Irrefutable Scientific Proof That Cell Phone Towers Are Lethal

 

What qualifies me to put together a paper of diverse research studies, interpret the data and form conclusions? I have taught post-secondary research for 18 years.. research methodology for 6 years, I have overssen the completion of research training in graduate research courses for 6 years, at two separate post-secondary institutions. During the time frame, I have written two courses on statistical analysis. I also served as a director for statistics at a post-secondary institution. I am not bragging, I am establishing credibility.

The purpose of this article, is to provide a very brief snippet of research which will demonstrate wy so many researchers are concerned that cell phone usage and mostly cell phone towers are and will be a death trap for millions who are exposed to these phenomenon on a regular basis.

I promise to do my best to express the findings in layman’s terms as much a possible.

A metanalysis is s study which looks at several studies which are examining the same set of variables with identical research protocols that are subsequently employed in order to determine conclusive findings, across a broad spectrum of the research studies. For the more geeky statisticians, the minimum level of significance needed to qualify for the following metanalysis was <.05. For laymen that means all the results expressed in the following paragraphs havea  high degree of confidence as to the findings as opposed to spurious relationships governed by chance.

A struking meta-analysis, in which 10 different epidemiological studies conclusively demontrated  that when both animal and Human populations are increasingly exposed to RF microwave emissions from wireless communication technologies  (eg mobile phones and their base stations that transmit RF signals to connect with the mobile phones) are placing the public’s lives in jeopardy. Seventy percent of these studies conclusively revealed that there is a strong correlated relationship between cell phone base station proximity and dire neurobehavioral effects (eg cytokine storms which will be explained in following paragraphs). Thirty percent of the studies in this metanalysis found a direct and positive cancer relationship in studies which maintained a classic experimental design of cause and effect.

Eighty perccent of the studies reported increased prevalence of adverse neurobehavioral and potentially deadly symptoms for the develoment of  cancer with regard to  populations living at distances within 500 meters from base stations.

What is most frightening is that zero percent of the studies reported RF exposure above the traditionally accepted, and FCC mandated international guidelines, related to health risks associated with such maladies as RF producting cancer.

Every study, in this metanalysis strongly suggested that current guidelines may be inadequate in protecting the health of human populations. The authors suggested that “comprehensive epidemiological studies of long-term mobile phone base station exposure are urgently required to more definitively understand its health impact.” Yet, a database search demonstrated that the FCC has no scheduled studies and apparently the health of the public living within 500 meters of a base cell phone tower is being completely ignored by each and every governmental regulatory entity. This is good news for the cell phone carriers and bad news for everyone else.

My friend, Dr. Ted Broer, the owner of Healthmasters, has educated my radio audience on the dangers of toxic substances (eg certain medications, RF exposure, etc) and their deleterious effects on health.

Dr. Broer has often referred to what is called a “cytokine storm”. The dangers associated with cytokine storms have been well documented. And now the evidence clearly shows that subjects who have prolonged RF exposure are much more at risk for developing a cytokine storm than subjects who are not sharing the same exposure intensity and duration.

A cytokine storm can best be described as a serverd immune system overreaction. In several research studies, scientists have mapped key elements of a severe immune system overreaction, in relation to cell phone RF frequency exposure. Now, it would be unethical to conduct experiments on humans, therefore mammals, such as mice that are often used in a classic experimental design using a control group (no exposure to excessive RF waves) and the experimental group in which RF exposure is manipulated to determine a cause and effect relationship. The results of a recent study are stunning!

The authors of the study, determined that manipulated and excessive RF frequencies can  both sicken and kill patients who are infected with certain strains of flu virus and that the findings are related to the cytokine storm which apppear as a result of exccessive RF exposure in both intensity and length of exposure. The resulting effects of the RF produced cytokine storms is due to an overproduction of immune cells and their activating compounds (ie cytokines), n which a subsequent flu infection, is often associated with a surge of activated immune cells into the lungs. As an aside, I have concluded from examining the data that there is a direct relationship between cell phone type of RF waves and cytokine storms and resulting mobidicy (ie death) related tosuch causes as  pneumonia from excessive build up of fluid in the lungs after the introduction of prolonged RF to the biological entity.

The resulting lung inflammation and fluid buildup can lead to respiratory distress and can be contaminated by a secondary bacterial pneumonia annd of coursse, this can often enhancied the mortality in patients. This phenomenon is more common in the elderly, but no age group is immune to these effects.

The good news that short exposure of splenic cells in vitro did not affect the activity of natural killer cells (killer cells protect the host from such maladies as cancer). The bad news is that irradiation with electromagnetic waves (8.15-18 GHz, 1 Hz within, 1 microW/cm2) increases the cytotoxic activity of natural killer cells of rat spleen. In mice exposed for 24-72 hours, the activity of natural killer cells increased by 130-150%, which leads to the previously explained cytokine storm. The REALLY BAD NEWS is that the increased level of killer cell activity (ie cytokine storms) persisting within 24 hours after the cessation of treatment. In other words, finding temporary respite from exposure does no good. You can place tin foil over your windows and you will be attacked.  And the amount needed to induce a cytokine storm is far less thatn your dail exposure to cell phones and their base towers.

Please allow me to take off my scientific hat. If I wanted to design a slow-kill strategy which would induce increased mortality and premature death (ie depopulation strategies), this would be a highly effect strategy to accomplish these goals. This kind of approach to depopulation does not arouse much suspicion because the culprit does not have an indentifiable face. And of course, the advertisersfor the industries (ie cell phone carriers invoking such a strategy often advertise in the mainstream media and subsequently, the media is not going to bite the hand that feeds them.

Oh, by the way, we are not just talking cancer, we are also talking about a greatly increase of heart attacks.  I have in my database, 37 studies which repeat the findings cited in this article. Remember, good science is conducting research, over and over, and getting the same results.  What is happening to life forms on this planet as a result of RF exposure, is not an accident. This is where conspiracy theory becomes conspiracy fact.

When you have no clue about firearms: USA Today writes about “less lethal” weapons used in Santa Fe shooting

FOTM–After the Santa Fe shooting on Friday since it was discovered that the shooter didn’t use an AR-15, USA Today tweeted the following:

Two details set the Santa Fe shooting apart from other recent deadly attacks: explosives and the use of less-lethal weapons.https://usat.ly/2rTfjyA.”

Ten people dead from a .38 revolver and a shotgun. How’s that “less lethal” narrative working for you, USA Today?

Why couldn’t USA Today write about the MULTIPLE ILLEGAL ACTS committed during this shooting with “less lethal” weapons:

  • The shooter committed murder, which is illegal.
  • At 17, the shooter was not allowed to purchase the guns and stole them from his father, which is illegal.
  • The shooter carried guns and ammunition at the school, which is illegal.
  • The shooter was not eligible for a “License to Carry” (conceal carry in Texas) and hid his guns, which is illegal.
  • The shooter deployed inoperable explosive deviceswhich is illegal.

Yet USA Today is going to run with firearms being “less lethal” than others. These people will do and say anything to spin their gun control confiscation narrative.

ANALYSIS: Alfie Evans was executed by lethal injection; Alder Hey hospital steeped in horrifying history of organ harvesting from human babies


Image: ANALYSIS: Alfie Evans was executed by lethal injection; Alder Hey hospital steeped in horrifying history of organ harvesting from human babies

(Natural News)
Watching in horror the “health care” murder of baby Alfie Evans over the last few days, I’ve been gathering an array of stories and sources to bring you a detailed, definitive report of what actually went down. Until that full report is ready, however, it seems urgent to share with you the conclusion of my research: I am convinced that Baby Alfie Evans was executed by lethal injection, and the hospital that murdered him appears to be the center hub of a multi-decade baby organ harvesting crime ring that saw 100,000 baby body parts harvested and illegally held in hospitals all across Britain. (See multiple news sources, below.)

It has always been clear that the Alder Hey children’s hospital sought to accelerate the death of Alfie Evans while silencing his parents through a sustained attack consisting of threats and intimidation tactics. Now, Life Site News is report that Alfie Evans was injected with four different drugs by hospital staff just two hours before he died. This, of course, was after several days of being starved to death and denied water. Virtually the entire corporate-controlled media has withheld this information from the public for a variety of nefarious reasons that I will discuss in another post.

Via LifeSiteNews.com:

UK toddler Alfie Evans allegedly died within hours of receiving four different drugs from a nurse at Alder Hey hospital, Italian media is reporting…

[A] nurse entered the child’s cubicle after his father Tom had been called aside and gave him four drugs. A source close to the family told LifeSiteNews that these were injections that were administered to Alfie after Tom had been summoned for an unusual middle-of-the-night meeting with the hospital. The child died two hours later.

Alder Hey hospital doctors had previously conveyed to the Evans’ family in a legal document how they intended to use a drug cocktail that included Midazolam and Fentanyl as part of Alfie’s “end of life care plan.” Side effects of the drugs included respiratory depression. Tom Evans called it an “execution plan” for his son.

Keep in mind that the hospital forced Alfie’s parents to read a so-called “hostage letter” to the press, and they stated that the family would be punished because of the poor attitude of the parents who apparently didn’t go along with the hospital’s plan to murder their baby. As LifeSiteNews reports:

The day prior to Alfie’s death, Tom Evans read to the press outside the hospital what is now being called by many a “hostage letter.” In what appeared to be a forced statement, Tom read out a letter calling all the supporters of Alfie to go home and resume their lives. He thanked the hospital staff for their care of Alfie, even though just hours earlier he had attempted to have them charged with conspiracy to murder his son.

Alder Hey hospital has links to illegal organ harvesting from the bodies of children

“A subsequent inquiry into the retention of organs from babies and foetuses born at Alder Hey found that more than 100,000 body parts, many of them taken illegally, were being held in hospitals around Britain,” reported the UK Independent in 2004. “[T]he remains of 1,000 unborn infants, discovered during the scandal over organ retention at the city’s Alder Hey hospital, [will be] laid to rest.”

To be clear, we’re talking about a massive campaign of illegal organ harvesting from babies, carried out over decades, involving the very same Alder Hey hospital that just murdered baby Alfie via lethal injection.

That same story goes on to report:

In March this year a High Court judge ruled that 1,300 families of children whose organs were taken without permission had suffered from negligence at NHS hospitals and could be entitled to compensation.

Stacked in columns 10 deep with just a numbered plaque to distinguish them, the bodies of 50 unknown babies were yesterday lowered into a single grave after lying forgotten in laboratory store rooms for at least 25 years.

It seems that baby Alfie Evans is not alone in being murdered by the corrupt medical system in order to harvest his organs. The practice has been going on for decades

Alder Hey hospital admits to being engaged in “live organ trade” for cash

It’s not just the UK Independent that covered the illegal organ harvesting and body parts trade pursued by the Alder Hey hospital. In 2001, the BBC also published a damning story that detailed the hospital’s criminal activities surrounding organ harvesting from human babies. As the following story reports, Alder Hey sold illegally harvest baby organs for cash.

Via the BBC:

The hospital at the centre of a row over organ retention has admitted for the first time that it gave organs from live children for research purposes in return for cash.

Between 1989 and 1995 these [thymus] glands, found beneath the breast bone, were given to pharmaceutical company Aventis Pasteur for research purposes. In return the company donated money to the hospital’s cardiac department.

Baby organs for cash? Indeed. That’s how the Alder Hey raised money to fund salaries of its doctors and administrators, it turns out. It’s all documented by the BBC and other UK news sources.

Babies might be worth more to Alder Hey DEAD than alive

I’m going to do a full report on this topic, and Alder Hey’s child-murdering lawyers can come to Texas and try to threaten me in person if they want me to stop. But I won’t be stopped for the simple reason that, according to my research, Alder Hey is a criminal medical “front” for routine organ harvesting from human babies. Those babies, it turns out, may be worth more to Alder Hey DEAD than alive.

After all, drug companies and vaccine companies are standing by, ready to pay big money for harvested baby organs: Up to $50,000 alone for a single human heart (see below). And any living baby the hospital wants to target can simply be given a lethal injection to be executed on the spot, all while threatening the parents into silence.

Welcome to the UK’s horrific death panels and its murderous hospital crime cartels, where the value of a human life is measured in cold hard cash rather than warm, living beings.

I’m convinced that Alfie Evans was murdered by the hospital. Even worse, it’s apparent this was not an isolated act.

Read this astonishing document on child organ trafficking that mentions Alder Hey

If you dare, read this astonishing document on child organ trafficking across the globe, which also mentions the Alder Hey hospital by name:

http://www.heal-online.org/childtraffic.pdf

As this document explains:

There is huge demand and a market for body parts especially eyes, hearts and kidneys belonging to children. Estimates indicate that at least one million children have been kidnapped and killed in the past 20 years for organs. A kidney or eyes can fetch up to US $10,000 and a heart could cost US $50,000 or more. Estimates further indicate that money laundering in this deadly trade accounts for up to 10% of the world’s GDP, or as much US $5 trillion. As a result, the black market for children’s organs is expanding and more and more children are kidnapped and killed.

The document specifically mentions the Alder Hey children’s hospital in the UK:

In 2001, Britain was also pressed by allegations of storing hearts, lungs, brains and other organs from children in hospitals. A Dutch pathologist Dick Van Velzen at the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool had confessed to removing hundreds of thousands of organs from children’s bodies and storing them in hospitals all over the country. The doctor told the BBC program ‘Panorama’ that body parts from living children were given to a pharmaceutical company for research in return for financial donations following management’s instructions. An inquiry by a British Medical Officer reported that in addition to over 2,000 hearts, there were a large number of brain parts, eyes taken from over 15,000 stillborn foetuses and perhaps most disturbingly of all, a number of children’s heads and bodies. Professor Van Velzen, who was sacked from a hospital in Canada where he faced similar charges also worked at a hospital in Holland.

All roads lead back to the WHO, Bill Gates and vaccine medical experiments on children

None of this should be surprising to those who are aware of the history of vaccines, medical research and the routine use of human babies and children for medical experiments.

“30,000 Indian Girls Used as ‘Guinea Pigs’ to Test HPV Vaccine,” reports Green Med Info:

Around 16,000 girls between the age of 9-15 years were given three shots of vaccine, (manufactured by Merck) by the state health department. The girls were told that they were being given “well-being” shots. The incident started getting attention when some months later, several girls’ health deteriorated and the following year, five of them died. Two such similar cases of deaths were reported from Vadodara, Gujarat, where 14,000 tribal children were also vaccinated with the HPV vaccine Cervarix, made by Glaxo SmithKline.

What I’ve published here so far just barely scratches the surface of this story. If you have the stomach for it, read the book The Red Market by Scott Carney, and you’ll come to learn the horrifying truth about organ harvesting, child traffickers, medical research and “blood farmers.”

I warn you, however: Page after page of reading this book, you will absolutely lose any remaining faith you might have had in humanity. Because the so-called “health care” system that dominates our world today is steeped in organ harvesting, child trafficking and the use of human guinea pigs for inhumane medical experiments. Vaccines, abortions, organ harvesting… it’s all intertwined in a cabal of such horrifying, twisted evil that you risk going mad merely by peering into its dark soul.

Check Natural News for more coverage of this issue in the near future. And pray for humanity, and it seems the death merchants are now in charge of the entire medical system (and the media, too).

Warning To Parents: These Are Not Gummy Candies, It’s A New Lethal Drugs

warning-to-parents-these-are-not-gummy-candies-its-a-new-lethal-drugs-600x320

This article is mostly addressed to parents as they are able to warn their own children about the new threat on the underground market. Namely, it is the strawberry met, which is another type of gem target and it is a subspecies of methamphetamine, which is utilized for a long time as a part of the West.

As its name shows, it has a scent which reminds of the strawberry flavor and looks like rubber or jelly candy or Pop Rocks. The drug is likewise accessible in different flavors, such as chocolate.

However, regardless of its scent and attractive look, it is crystal meth with strawberry enhance and can cause death. That is most likely one of the ugliest and briefest ways to death.

Gem meth (Crystal Meth) is one of the manufactured drugs and is turning out to be progressively popular in the EU nations and the USA. The number of clients and addicts of this medication expands at a large rate.

This powder, as small gems (which are also called “ice”), may be taken orally, by sniffing, smoking or even intravenously – using a syringe. The generation procedure is straightforward, and when one takes it, it unequivocally actuates certain mind cells. This leads to a physical and mental dependence.

Consequently, make sure you and your children avoid this terrifying drug in the form of gummy candies, since its effects are seriously harmful to your health and life.

Re: UN calls for probe into Israel’s use of lethal forces in West Bank

United Nations called on Friday for conducting immediate investigations into all incidents that lead to the death of Palestinians by Israeli occupation forces in the occupied West Bank, Quds Press reported.

Stephane Dujarric, spokesperson of UN Secretary-General, said: “The UN officials feel worried about the clashes between the Palestinians and the Israeli security forces.”

He said that the UN Special Envoy to the Middle East Nicolay Mladenov had expressed his “concerns” about the continuous unrest in the occupied territories, including the killing of two Palestinian teens.

On Thursday, Israeli occupation shot dead two Palestinian boys; one in West Bank and the other in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Read: Israel killed 8 unarmed Palestinians in Gaza

Dujarric called for conducting an “immediate investigation” into the Israeli use of lethal force that causes death and injuries among Palestinians.

Since Trump’s move to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital on 6 December, Israeli occupation forces have killed 17 Palestinians and wounded thousands in protests in occupied territories.

‘Accomplice in igniting war’: Moscow says US crosses a line with lethal arms supplies to Ukraine

The move by the US government is an escalation compared to the previous practice of providing weapons to Kiev through contracts with American arms producers, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said in a statement. “In a sense, the US has crossed a line.”

The Russian diplomat added that Washington can no longer claim the role of mediator in the Ukrainian conflict, because in fact it’s an “accomplice in igniting a war.” He said Moscow believes there is no use in appealing to the common sense of American politicians, since many of them are currently “blinded by Russophobia and eagerly applaud the Ukrainian nationalist punitive battalions.”

Ryabkov’s remarks are in line with a string of condemnation of Washington’s move by other Russian officials. Fellow Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said the US arming of Ukraine undermines the 2015 Minsk agreement, which was negotiated with the help of Germany and France, and laid down a roadmap for resolution of the conflict. The agreement’s implementation was stalled by Kiev’s refusal to uphold its part of the bargain, which included amnesty for rebel fighters and special autonomous status for the regions they control.

Aleksey Pushkov, member of the Russian Senate security committee, warned that the US may find itself dragged into direct confrontation with the rebels in Ukraine. The delivery of US-made weapon systems will require training of Ukrainian troops on the ground, and US advisers involved in such a program may be targeted by a Ukrainian provocation, he said.

The US “has enough problems already to allow itself to be involved in adventures of the [Ukrainian] regime,” he said. “And we know too well how adventurous Kiev may be.”
Pushkov said the “war party” members in Ukraine may be interested in re-igniting hostilities in the east ahead of the 2019 presidential election. Such an escalation would draw public attention away from the many failures of the government and whip up public support for hardline politicians.

Considering that Ukraine has been sidelined by other issues such as the crisis on the Korean Peninsula and the row over Washington’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, renewed violence would also help Kiev return to the list of priorities of world powers, Pushkov added.

On Friday, the US State Department announced the US would supply “defensive weapons” to Ukraine, saying it would help “deter further aggression.” The weapons would reportedly include anti-tank missiles, which Kiev has been asking for from Washington for years. The US government earlier approved a purchase by Kiev of sniper rifles and other small arms from US manufacturers.

Drug Dealer Who Sold Teen Lethal Amount Of Fentanyl Ordered To Pay For His Funeral

A drug dealer in Ohio was ordered by a judge this week to cover the funeral costs for a teen who died of a fentanyl overdose.

Michael Chandler, 29, of Cincinnati was also sentenced to more than 16 years in prison for drug distribution and possession. Authorities say Chandler sold a lethal amount of fentanyl to a 17-year-old identified in court documents as J.H. The teen was found dead in his home in April.

According to The Associated Press, an investigation into the teen’s death led authorities to Chandler, whose home contained a “large quantity” of fentanyl, as well as cocaine, drug paraphernalia and a handgun.

Chandler had previously served time for cocaine and heroin trafficking, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer.

A video reviewed by prosecutors and obtained by the Enquirer shows Chandler doling out packets of drugs from behind the wheel of his car as customers drive by in broad daylight.

In the clip, Chandler compared his drug dealing to a “McDonald’s.”

“It was one of the most appalling things I’ve seen in my nearly 20-year career,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth Parker told the Enquirer in response to the clip.

On Monday, U.S. District Judge Michael Barrett sentenced Chandler to nearly 17 years in prison and ordered him to pay $9,000 in restitution to cover J.H.’s funeral costs, reported WCPO-TV.

“In the end, [J.H.] was nothing more than a customer to Chandler,” prosecutors said in a sentencing memorandum. “We do consider [Chandler’s] actions abominable, or better put, monstrous.”

‘Defensive’ RPGs: US firm supplied Ukraine with lethal weapons for 1 year

Texas-based company AirTronic USA has been selling grenade launchers to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, VOA said in its report, citing the company CEO Richard Vandiver. The company head told the media outlet that his firm began cooperating with Kiev as early as two years ago while the first arms deliveries were made in 2016.

“We started to deliver our goods to Ukraine last year [and] we continue to deliver them up to this day,” Vandiver said. He refused to provide any further details concerning the contract but said that the US embassy in Kiev, as well as the State Department and the Pentagon, closely monitor the issue. The businessman also added that his company obtained an official export license for its weapons from the State Department.

The PSRL grenade launchers that AirTronic USA has been to Kiev in fact a redesigned US-manufactured version of the Soviet RPG-7, which the US company itself calls “the world’s most widely used anti-tank weapon.”

The supply agreement was initially renewed annually but is now not limited by time, Vandiver said, claiming that the US embassy now controls how the grenade launchers are used by Ukrainian troops. The contract specifically prohibits resale of the weapons.

Ukrainian Ambassador to the US Valery Chaly admitted to VOA that Ukrainian diplomats had played a certain role in this deal. “We established contacts between the AirTronic USA and the Ukroboronprom [the state-owned Ukrainian defense industry enterprise that manages arms production and arms trade] at some point and then they developed this cooperation further,” he said, calling the contract “a political decision.”

In the meantime, Vandiver said that the weapons his company supplies to Ukraine are purely of a “defensive” nature and thus do not violate any international agreements – even the Minsk Accords. However, he did acknowledge that it is a “lethal weapons system,” adding that the grenade launchers have a maximum range of 1,000 meters.

The news comes just two weeks after the US Congress approved the draft of the national defense budget that authorizes $350 million to provide security aid to Ukraine to “provide security assistance … including defensive lethal assistance.” The 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) also contains an entire category entitled ‘Countering Russian Aggression’.

Under this category, the US plans to spend as much as $4.6 billion on what it calls the European Deterrence Initiative (EDI) aimed at “reassuring NATO allies and enhancing the US deterrent and defense postures in Europe.” In particular, the NDAA envisages allocations of $100 million in military aid to the Baltic countries.

Russia has repeatedly criticized the US plans to send lethal weapons to Kiev, calling them a potential threat to stability in Ukraine, as well as neighboring countries. In particular, Moscow warned that the move could encourage Kiev to renew a full-out war in Donbass in an attempt to resolve the crisis in eastern Ukraine.
