Pennsylvania: Allegheny County: Children in 7th Grade Will Be Forcibly Injected with HPV Vaccine If They Wish to Remain in Public Shool

Children in 7th grade will be forcibly injected with HPV vaccine if they wish to remain in public school

In a highly controversial, unprecedented motion, members of the Allegheny County Health Department in Pittsburgh, PA, have publicly revealed that they’re considering administering a countywide mandate to require all 7th grade girls and boys to receive the HPV vaccine before receiving admittance into school for the 2017–18 school year.

Since the news broke last week, natural health advocates and anti-vaccine activists have been in an outrage, condemning the corporate Big Pharma-funded mandate.

The HPV vaccine is readily available to the public; that, coupled with the fact that the Human papilloma virus is transmitted exclusively through sexual activity, makes the necessity of administering a vaccine with such controversial side effects to grade school children absurd.

If passed, the mandate would make Allegheny County the only county in the state to have different vaccine regulations to the rest of Pennsylvania. While the mandate would only affect school children attending schools within Allegheny County, many fear that if the mandate is a success, other U.S. counties and states could easily follow suit.

An Appeal To Bill And Melinda Gates For Your Help In Raising Healthy Children

"While your family held off giving kids phones until age 14, the typical age children get smartphones has fallen to 10. The impact on our young people has been disastrous, as U.S. teens now spend 8 hours each day playing with screens and phones at the expense of engaging with family and school. This behavior has contributed to a generation of depressed, anxious, and self-injuring youth. We also have a nation of kids who are smartphone experts but struggle in reading, math, and the other skills colleges evaluate to decide admissions."

Dear Bill and Melinda,

The purpose of this letter is first to commend you for raising your own children with strong screen and phone limits, as this will serve them well. Bill, thank you for declaring in a recent article, “We don’t have cellphones at the table when we are having a meal, we didn’t give our kids cellphones until they were 14 and they complained other kids got them earlier.” Clearly, setting firm tech limits has long been a priority for your family, as a 2007 article highlighted the strong rules you enforce around your kids’ gaming and screen habits. The benefits for your children are abundant, as research shows that these limits dramatically enhance kids’ emotional health, academic success, and physical health.

The Brain Literally Starts Eating Itself When It Doesn't Get Enough Sleep

The research has been published in the Journal of Neuroscience.

The Brain Literally Starts Eating Itself When It Doesn't Get Enough Sleep
BEC CREW, sciencealert.com, 26 May 2017

The reason we sleep goes far beyond simply replenishing our energy levels every 12 hours - our brains actually change states when we sleep to clear away the toxic byproducts of neural activity left behind during the day.

Weirdly enough, the same process starts to occur in brains that are chronically sleep-deprived too - except it's kicked into hyperdrive. Researchers have found that persistently poor sleep causes the brain to clear a significant amount of neurons and synaptic connections, and recovering sleep might not be able to reverse the damage.

A team led by neuroscientist Michele Bellesi from the Marche Polytechnic University in Italy has examined the mammalian brain's response to poor sleeping habits, and found a bizarre similarity between the well-rested and sleepless mice.

Major Canadian Study Finds Cell Phone Use Increases Risk For Brain Cancer
American Journal of Epidemiology 2017

A newly published report in the American Journal of Epidemiology just released this week, confirms that Canadians who have used cellphones for 558 hours or more have more than a doubled risk of brain cancer. These important findings strengthen the association between glioma, an aggressive brain cancer, and cell phone use.

The original 13-nation Interphone study for the International Agency for the Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization reported reported a 40% increase in brain cancer for those using phones for 1640 lifetime hours. This new study found that Canadians had more than a doubled glioma risk when they were analyzed apart from the 12 other countries.
“Governments have allowed this technology to pervade our lives saying it did not have proof it could harm us. We now have evidence from the latest Canadian Interphone study data that found a statistically significant doubling of risk for glioma among cell phone users with only 558 lifetime hours of use.

How long will it take a teenager to amass 558 hours of cell phone use?

5G And The IOT: Scientific Overview Of Human Health Risks

5G And The IOT: Scientific Overview Of Human Health Risks
Environmental Health Trust, ehtrust.org

5G is the term used to describe the next-generation of mobile networks beyond the 4G LTE mobile networks commonly used today. Currently there is no standard for 5G networks in place and it will be a combination of a variety of frequencies and modulations. Industry is developing exactly what 5G will be. It is assumed that 5G networks will not become commercially available until 2020 but several cities are rolling out 5G as test areas now.

Published peer reviewed science already indicates that the current wireless technologies of 2G, 3G and 4G – in use today with our cell phones, computers and wearable tech – creates radiofrequency exposures which poses a serious health risk to humans, animals and the environment. Scientists are cautioning that before rolling out 5G, research on human health effects urgently needs to be done first to ensure the public and environment are protected.

How Cellphones Can Cause Brain Tumors and Trigger Chronic Disease

Keeping the phone 1 inch away from your skull will have a relatively modest reduction in exposure. You need to move it 2 TO 3 FEET (around 1 meter) away from your head to reduce the exposure by over 90 percent.

How Cellphones Can Cause Brain Tumors and Trigger Chronic Disease
by Dr. Mercola, 23 May 2017

Story at-a-glance

  • Exposure to cellphone radiation may or may not increase your risk of brain tumor formation, but this is a minor risk compared to damage done by free radicals from peroxynitrites that radically impair mitochondrial function
  • Science has linked exposure to peroxynitrites from low-frequency microwave radiation emitted from cellphones and Wi-Fi networks with chronic diseases such as heart disease, obesity and inflammatory bowel disease
  • You can reduce your exposure by shutting off your Wi-Fi at night, keeping cellphones in airplane mode unless using them, using the speaker phone and using a selfie stick when talking on it

BMW Wages War on 'Electrosmog'

BMW wages war on ‘electro smog’

Munich's research and innovations boffins warn against unlimited electro-magnetic radiation

BMW’s Vehicle Research and Innovations Centre, known by its German acronomym ‘FIZ’ (pictured), is on the frontline of a battle to contain electro-magnetic radiation – known within the organisation as ‘electro smog’.

Ultra-high frequency and microwave radiation waves are all around us, says BMW spokesman Andreas Metzner, but electro smog is especially hazardous around the historic city of Augsburg, where the American signals intelligence collection agency, the NSA, operates a facility.

The electro smog emanating from that facility is extreme, but Germany is powerless to impose restrictions on the NSA, “because they’re Americans”, Metzner flippantly observes.

Why is electro smog such a concern?

According to the BMW spokesman, strong radiation could interfere with a car’s on-board radar-based AEB (autonomous emergency braking). Such a conflict could be misconstrued by the car’s computer as an obstacle less than three metres ahead. At autobahn speeds that could be a catastrophic event considerably worse than just spilling your sippy cup of coffee in your lap.

Hayley Riddick is concerned at the risk of her children developing childhood leukaemia, brain tumours or brain cancer

A Frome mother battling to prevent a telephone antenna being installed outside her home says she is afraid that it could create health risks for her children.

Hayley Riddick, who is mother to twin daughters, aged eight months, and a son aged three and a half, is concerned the monopole could heighten the risk of her children developing childhood leukaemia, brain tumours or brain cancer.

Plans to install the monopole at the junction between Grange Road and Bath Road were submitted by Vodafone last month. The 15m shrouded monopole – otherwise known as an antenna – will come with two microwave dishes and three equipment cabinets.

EKG Evidence that Smart Meters Negatively Affect the Human Heart

Waking Times, 23 May 2017

There have been numerous whistleblowers to warn of the negative effects of smart meters on human health but perhaps none has been so successful in scientifically proving this claim as Warren Woodward of Sedona, Arizona. He recently put AMI ‘smart’ meters to the test, and using EKG technology, has proven that smart meters throw the human heart off its balanced beat.

Wireless Radiation/Electromagnetic Fields Increases Toxic Body Burden

It is a known fact that lead, air pollution, and other toxic chemicals can damage our health and, more specifically, these toxins can damage brain development. In addition, wireless and EMF radiation can synergistically increase the effect of these daily toxic exposures because of the ways in which wireless radiation alters the body’s natural functioning.

Wireless radiation has been shown to damage sleep and the blood-brain barrier, which in turn can lead to higher toxic load on the body. Furthermore, well done replicated research studies have found that a known carcinogen exposure in combination with wireless and EMF exposure leads to a significantly increased risk of cancer development.

Wireless Alters Sleep Architecture.

Sleep is critical to health. Recent scientific discoveries have added to our understanding of how deep sleep not only consolidates memories but is actually a time when the brain cleans out toxins. A 2013 NIH-funded study suggests sleep “clears brain of damaging molecules associated with neurodegeneration.” Therefore, sleep damage could decrease the brain’s ability to detox at night.
