More Than 75% Of Americans Aged 17-24 Aren’t Fit For Military Service: DOD

Zero Hedge |  March 4, 2023

As the US military struggles to fill the ranks with new recruits, a new report from the Department of Defense reveals that the vast majority of Americans aged 17-24 are unfit for military service.

Citing a Feb. 16 congressional hearing, a DoD report reveals that 77% of Americans in the above age group could not physically qualify to enter the armed forces – a 6% increase from 2017.

A key factor is obesity – which hit nearly 42% in 2020. Meanwhile, a 2022 study cited by the Epoch Times found a link between receiving government food assistanceand a greater chance of becoming obese through the consumption of unhealthy foods. A 2015 USDA analysis found that 40% of total SNAP participants were obese.

  • Molecular hydrogen acts as a selective antioxidant, meaning it doesn’t indiscriminately suppress free radicals

  • It uses your body’s biological systems and feedback loops to identify where and when you’re under oxidative stress, and when found, pathways are activated and key proteins released that cause your DNA to make the antioxidants themselves

  • Molecular hydrogen is not intrinsically an antioxidant. Rather, it helps your body make its own endogenous antioxidants. This is what makes molecular hydrogen so unique

  • Molecular hydrogen has been shown to have therapeutic benefits in more than 170 different animal disease models

  • The reason it has such diverse benefits in so many different disease models is because all of them have excessive oxidative stress, redox dysregulation and inflammation as their root cause. By regulating the oxidative pathways, molecular hydrogen is able to address these root causes

In this interview, repeat guest Tyler LeBaron, MSc., Ph.D., reviews some of the many benefits of molecular hydrogen (H2). Perhaps most importantly, molecular hydrogen acts as a selective antioxidant, meaning it doesn’t indiscriminately suppress free radicals.

It uses your body’s own biological systems and feedback loops to identify where and when you’re under oxidative stress, and when found, antioxidant genes are stimulated and key antioxidants are transcribed from your DNA. So, molecular hydrogen is not in and of itself a direct radical-scavenging antioxidant. Rather, it helps your body make its own endogenous antioxidants. This is what makes molecular hydrogen so unique.

This is crucial because excessive antioxidants use can be deleterious and molecular hydrogen serves as a redox regulator, so, just like Goldilocks, you get just the right amount, not too much and not too little, which makes your cells very happy.

One of the pathways activated by H2 when free radicals are present is the Nrf2 pathway. LeBaron explains:

“In your cell you have this protein, Nrf2, and it’s attached to Keap1. They’re always attached together. But when you get oxidative stress … it can cleave off.

[Oxidative stress] causes the cleaving off of the Nrf2 and the Keap1, and the Nrf2 can then diffuse into the nucleus [where] it binds to the ARE, the antioxidant response element of the DNA. [This triggers] the production of all these endogenous antioxidants — Phase 2 enzymes of detoxification and antioxidation — and there are over 200 of them.”

This is one of the primary benefits of molecular hydrogen. It’s also what makes molecular hydrogen so useful for such a wide variety of conditions. According to LeBaron, it’s been shown to have therapeutic benefits in more than 170 different animal disease models.

“What this means is, for example, there are lots of ways to induce diabetes in an animal model. Using these different models, we can show molecular hydrogen has therapeutic effects. And, yes, the Nrf2 in some cases seems to be extremely important. In fact, by using gene knockout or or interfering RNA, you can blunt the benefits of molecular hydrogen. So, the Nrf2 is very important,” LeBaron says.

Sulforaphane, found in broccoli, is another well-studied Nrf2 activator. But in contrast to sulforaphane (as well as other Nrf2 activators), molecular hydrogen does not disturb redox homeostasis within the cell by adding too many antioxidants.

Redox homeostasis is when there’s a specific balance between reducing and oxidizing reactions within the cell. Homeostasis is what you need for optimal cellular health, and either too many free radicals or too many antioxidants can have detrimental effects. When you add molecular hydrogen to a cell that is already at redox homeostasis, however, there’s no increase in Nrf2 or other proteins, so it doesn’t accidentally push it out of homeostasis. As explained by LeBaron:

“That’s important because we don’t want to have reductive stress. If you were to induce the Nrf2 pathway indiscriminately and just keep it going, that would be reductive stress and that would be problematic.

In fact, there are genetic mutations where the Nrf2 is hyperactivated, and that leads to all sorts of problems. Cancer sometimes can activate the Nrf2 really strongly … So what we really are talking about is the regulation of Nrf2.

When we administer molecular hydrogen to healthy cells, we don’t see changes in the Nrf2 level at the protein level. However, if we were to administer a toxin or some other stress, that’s when we would see that molecular hydrogen was able to induce the Nrf2 — and many other proteins, not just the Nrf2 — and provide a protective effect.

That is different than anything else out there. And it has this pretreatment effect as well. So, for example, in one study, they administered molecular hydrogen into a cell culture, and after that, they administered a common environmental toxin.

The exposure caused a decrease in the antioxidant status. So, you could see markers of increased oxidative stress, you could see decrease in superoxide dismutase levels, all these important antioxidants, as well as a decrease in NAD+ to NADH ratio. Having a high ratio is very important, and this stress caused a reduction in this ratio.

However, in the cells that were pretreated with molecular hydrogen, it prevented those reductions from happening, and it provided a protective effect for 24 hours even after the hydrogen gas was out of the cell culture and there was no molecular hydrogen left. That’s because molecular hydrogen works at the gene level, epigenetically even, modulating proteins, the signaling pathways and the phosphorylation cascades …

So, we’re not just activating Nrf2. We’re regulating its production so it’s not too high, not too low … [Molecular hydrogen is an] adaptogenic redox regulator, basically …

And, we are able to provide a protective effect for, say, 24 hours in this case, as opposed to only when it’s present. It’s amazing to think that molecular hydrogen is able to change how the genes express themselves so that it’s going to have favorable effects even after it’s out of the body.”

While there’s no risk of overdosing on molecular hydrogen, intermittent exposure produces the best results. It’s also important to get the optimal concentration of H2 molecules to your cells, at least a concentration of about 10 micromolar or higher at the cellular level.

Dose-dependent benefits are seen between 10 micromolar all the way up to 800 micromolar, which is considered the saturation level of molecular hydrogen in water at sea level. The therapeutic dose of regular hydrogen water is 0.5 milligrams per liter (mg/L). Saturation is reached at 1.57 mg/L, but some technologies such as tablets can give much higher levels.

So, when we talk about the “right” and “wrong” ways to take molecular hydrogen, it has to do with the concentration of H2 that you’re getting. For example, the “wrong” way to drink H2 water might be to take a few sips every few minutes, finishing it in an hour.

With each passing minute, the H2 concentration reduces, leaving you with next to nothing by the time you’re finished. You also won’t get that approximate 10 micromolar level concentration required to transcribe the DNA to produce your endogenous antioxidants.

When using molecular hydrogen tablets, which is my preferred method, the nanobubbles contain hydrogen gas, so once the bubbles are gone, you’ve lost most of the hydrogen. So, to ensure maximum concentration, you have to drink it as soon as the tablet has dissolved and the water is still cloudy-looking.

Hydrogen is the smallest-known molecule in the universe and it has no electrical charge, so it can easily penetrate any cell membrane once in your body. However, it will follow a concentration gradient, so when you drink hydrogen water, it’ll go to the stomach first, followed by the intestines and liver before entering your systemic circulation.

“Through Brownian motion and this diffusion gradient, it’ll be a passive diffusion, simple diffusion into the cells, where it’s going to induce effects,” LeBaron says.

“So going back to the tablets, the concentration of the hydrogen in the tablets is not just in dissolved form, but it’s in this quasi-suspended, micro-macro nano bubble form that has a lot of hydrogen density, so to speak, in the water.

So, it’s not going to be as stable. So, absolutely, in that case, you’ve got to drink it very, very quickly while it’s still cloudy. Otherwise, you’re going to lose a high percentage of the hydrogen …

Unfortunately, some hydrogen products do not reach that threshold of 0.5 mg/L. But with the tablets, because so much [hydrogen] is dissolved and a lot of that is in the suspended or quasi form, you have a very high volume of molecular hydrogen, which requires you to drink it faster, but you can get these higher doses of molecular hydrogen.”

When it comes to buying a high-quality H2 product, make sure it’s certified according to the International Hydrogen Standards Association (IHSA). This is your assurance that the product is truly capable of at least delivering the proper amount of molecular hydrogen. LeBaron explains:

“We published a paper showing how ORP [oxidation-reduction potential] is very inaccurate, especially if the pH is anything but neutral. So, with the tablets, you might measure something like 0.5 mg/L when really it’s 5 mg/L because of the pH. So, we really can’t use ORP-type meters or other methods.

It has to be gas chromatography. And IHSA uses the gold standard, gas chromatography, and then does a series of testing for safety and purity and a number of other things in order to be classified as a product that could be recommended and used in clinical studies.”

In the interview, LeBaron also does a quick review on the ideal dosing when using inhaled hydrogen. I’ve limited my summary to hydrogen water here, as this is the easiest way to get it, and in many cases, drinking hydrogen water is more effective than inhalation. Molecular tablets are also ideal when traveling, as you can simply drop one in a glass of water.

“In certain cases, it’s 100 times more effective, just looking at different protein expressions, for example,” LeBaron says. “But in other scenarios, the inhalation might be able to work on different pathways, different areas that the drinking cannot, and so they don’t really compete with each other and there could be an additive or synergistic benefit from them.

In the past, I would say most of the research has been done on drinking hydrogen water in clinical studies, and that’s still probably the case, but there are more and more clinical studies being done now with the inhalation of molecular hydrogen that are showing favorable effects.”

One of the benefits of molecular hydrogen is that it helps protect against radiation damage, including X-rays from medical diagnostics and the gamma rays you’re exposed to during flights. Every time I fly, I take it just before takeoff, as it takes about an hour before the ARE enzymes are activated and you start producing endogenous antioxidants.

Then I take it once every hour for as long as I’m in the air. If you’re using tablets, put one tablet in 16 ounces of room temperature water and drink it as soon as it’s dissolved. Cold water will make the tablet dissolve slower, so you’ll lose some H2 while waiting for it to fully dissolve. Don’t use carbonated water as the carbon dioxide gas will lower the concentration of hydrogen gas that you can have in the water.

Alternatively, you could pretreat yourself by taking molecular hydrogen for two or three days beforehand. That way, by the time you’re exposed to the radiation, you’ll already have a level of built-in protection. If you need a CT scan, consider pretreating yourself for a couple of days and then take another dose about 30 minutes or so directly before the test.

Molecular hydrogen may also help ward off some of the damage incurred by nonionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF). One theory advanced by Martin Pall, Ph.D., is that the primary danger of EMFs is the mitochondrial damage triggered by peroxynitrites, one of the most damaging types of reactive nitrogen species.

Low-frequency microwave radiation activates the voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) in the outer membrane of your cells, causing them to open, thus allowing an abnormal influx of calcium ions. This activates nitric oxide, which is a precursor for peroxynitrite.

“What we need to do is decrease the excessive production of superoxide or nitric oxide. Then we could essentially prevent peroxynitrite formation. And that’s exactly what molecular hydrogen does.” ~ Tyler LeBaron, MSc, Ph.D.

These potent reactive nitrogen species are associated with an increased level of systemic inflammation and mitochondrial dysfunction and are thought to be a root cause for many of today’s chronic diseases.

Clearly, limiting your EMF exposure should be your primary strategy, but if for whatever reason you cannot, then you may want to consider taking molecular hydrogen regularly to increase your endogenous antioxidants and limit the damage from peroxynitrite and other oxidative stressors. How does this work? LeBaron explains:

“One of the first studies, published in Nature Medicine in 2007

… found that in addition to [molecular hydrogen’s] ability to reduce hydroxyl radicals, [it could] reduce peroxynitrite. We see a reduction of the peroxynitrite levels, and we also see reductions — like in animals and tissue samples — of nitrotyrosine levels, which is a marker of the peroxynitrite as well.

Now, calcium signals can induce nitric oxide and activate various NOX enzymes to increase superoxide production, and then you have superoxide and nitric oxide, and they react instantaneously. If they come in contact with each other, they will form peroxynitrite. The only thing that limits how fast they react is the rate of diffusion.

So, what we need to do is … decrease the excessive production of superoxide or nitric oxide. Then we could essentially prevent peroxynitrite formation. And that’s exactly what molecular hydrogen does.

This is really fascinating because if you took other antioxidants and you put them in the presence of nitric oxide or superoxide, you could scavenge them. They would donate their electrons and neutralize them. That can be good, but it can also be bad, because your body makes and specifically uses things like superoxide to increase mitochondrial biogenesis, or nitric oxide for vasodilation.

So, we don’t want to just neutralize all of these. Hydrogen [is] selective, and if you put molecular hydrogen in the presence of superoxide or nitric oxide, there is no reaction. They don’t have a strong enough oxidizing power for hydrogen to react, so we don’t have to worry about that happening.

The question then is, how does hydrogen help with the superoxide and the nitric oxide when their levels are in excess production? That goes to this signal modulating effect. With superoxide, typically that’s from NADPH oxidase or NOX enzymes that can become hyperactivated.

Molecular hydrogen has this ability to down-regulate this NOX enzyme, so you end up producing less superoxide in the first place. And, if you have less superoxide, then you’re going to make less peroxynitrite.

And then, on the other side, when you have nitric oxide production, you have three main isozymes or enzymes. You have the neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS), endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) and the inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS). eNOS, that’s in the endothelial cells, so typically, that’s good. You want more of that, you kind of lose that as you get older.

Incidentally enough, on a side note, molecular hydrogen can actually improve eNOS. So, we can have better blood perfusion and things in this way.

But the iNOS, specifically from macrophages, can be problematic. And hydrogen has this ability to down-regulate the activity of iNOS, of making this excessive nitric oxide production. So now you’re decreasing superoxide and nitric oxide levels, and consequently you get less peroxynitrite.”

Molecular hydrogen can also be used to boost exercise endurance. LeBaron published a paper on this in the Canadian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology a few years ago. There are also several others, including a systematic review and meta-analysis, that detail its favorable effects. As explained by LeBaron, it can help you push yourself harder, improve blood flow and reduce fatigue.

“One of the earliest studies found [molecular hydrogen could] prevent fatigue during a maximal isokinetic knee extension exercise. Isokinetic just means same speed, so you’re on a machine and you’re just doing these leg extensions. I think they did 50 in a row, and you just do them as hard as you can.

The group that took molecular hydrogen was able to maintain a higher force output during those 50 maximal isokinetic knee extensions. Also, they looked at exercising at around 70% your VO2 max, which is about close 70% of your max heart rate, and those who were doing this were able to exercise longer [and] had lower levels of lactate …

One interpretation is that molecular hydrogen may have improved the function of the mitochondria … Now, if we’re getting our ATP production from the mitochondria using aerobic respiration, then we don’t have to go through the anaerobic pathway of making lactate.

So that’s … why we’re seeing lactate decrease; we’re able to use the mitochondria to make ATP, so now we can exercise better, longer and have less fatigue, especially the perceived exertion.

There are also explanations in terms of lactate clearance and accelerating the Cori cycle and different things. But mitochondrial bioenergetics are probably a major target of molecular hydrogen …

[It’s also] protective, because when you exercise, you breathe a lot more and that’s going to make more free radicals. A lot of those free radicals are going to be very good for your body because it’s going to force you to make more antioxidants, it’s going to increase mitochondrial bioenergetics and all this stuff, but you’re still causing damage.

You’re still damaging DNA. With molecular hydrogen, you can negate or reduce the damaging effects of exercise while not inhibiting the benefits of exercise, and in fact, maybe even potentiating the benefits of exercises. This is the idea that hydrogen in some ways can act as an exercise mimetic. Not in the true sense, but maybe it’s a pseudo mimetic because it can activate some of the same metabolic pathways that exercise does.

And, in this case, it can maybe potentiate those benefits of exercise. Then again, to compare that to conventional antioxidants … taking high dose antioxidants can negate the benefits of exercise training.

Normally, with exercise you have improved insulin sensitivity, your glucose levels go down, you have better antioxidant status. Taking high levels of synthetic antioxidants can completely negate those benefits. So, again, hydrogen is superior because it doesn’t do that.”

Interestingly, molecular hydrogen also induces heat shock protein responses, thereby mimicking some of the benefits of sauna therapy. One of the most important benefits of heat shock proteins is that they help refold misfolded proteins that no longer work properly and facilitates their removal if they can’t be properly refolded.

Some of LeBaron’s colleagues in Japan investigated this, showing molecular hydrogen is able to induce mtUPR, the mitochondrial unfolded protein response, which is thought to promote rejuvenation of the mitochondria. Molecular hydrogen has also been shown to upregulate collagen biosynthesis, which is important both for youthfulness and post-injury healing.

So, to recap, the reason molecular hydrogen can have such diverse benefits in so many different disease models is because, essentially, all of them have excessive oxidative stress, redox dysregulation and inflammation as their root cause.

By regulating the oxidative pathways, molecular hydrogen can address these root causes. It’s also selective and doesn’t create reductive stress by avoiding making excessive antioxidants if your body doesn’t need them.

For these reasons, it’s my absolute favorite antioxidant and, I believe, the best option for most. One potential contraindication would be if you have small intestinal bowel overgrowth (SIBO), as, theoretically, those bacteria may feed on the hydrogen. This has not been confirmed, but it’s a theoretical possibility. So, if you have SIBO, carefully evaluate how you feel after taking it.

If you want to take a deep dive into the science and application of molecular hydrogen, check out LeBaron’s courses, available at molecularhydrogeninstitute.org. The institute offers four levels of certification, plus an apprentice course, but you don’t have to be a health professional to take them.

“These courses are specifically designed to eradicate a lot of the misinformation, get the correct information out and allow you to think about how to use molecular hydrogen the best, how to optimize it and so on. So I think people are going to really like them,” he says.

ℹ️ From Dr. Joseph Mercola

Since COVID-19 first entered the scene, exchange of ideas has basically been outlawed. By sharing my views and those from various experts throughout the pandemic on COVID treatments and the experimental COVID jabs, I became a main target of the White House, the political establishment and the global cabal.

Propaganda and pervasive censorship have been deployed to seize control over every part of your life, including your health, finances and food supply. The major media are key players and have been instrumental in creating and fueling fear.

I am republishing this article in its original form so that you can see how the progression unfolded.

Originally published: April 16, 2020

In March 2020, with the U.S. reeling from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Secure 5G and Beyond Act (S. 893) and the Broadband Deployment Accuracy and Technological Availability Act (S. 1822) were signed into law.

The duo will accelerate the adoption of 5G, or “5th Generation,” wireless networks across the U.S. — and in so doing, force Americans to receive unprecedented levels of exposure to the millimeter wave (MMW), which has shown potential to harm human health and the environment.

The 5G act requires the president to develop a strategy to ensure the security of 5G mobile telecommunications systems and infrastructures in the U.S., while assisting “allies and strategic partners” to maximize the security of such systems.

The Broadband act requires the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to issue rules regarding data collection to ultimately improve the accuracy of maps showing where broadband is available in the U.S.

What’s more, the 5G Act requires the president to consult with the FCC, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense and other agencies and submit a plan to Congress within 180 days detailing how secure 5G will be implemented.

With millions of Americans suddenly working remotely, it’s an opportune time for regulators to move 5G forward — but it’s a move that has many experts concerned. Still, the legislation is moving forward under the guise of bringing faster internet to Americans, at any cost. The House Energy and Commerce Committee, which is led by chairman Frank Pallone, Jr., said in a statement:

“The bills signed into law … by the President are critical to ensuring that all Americans can access broadband and that our networks are secure and trusted. The need for connectivity is even more critical now that millions of Americans are teleworking and learning from home in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

We must prepare our networks for the 5G future and ensure federal agencies work together on a comprehensive plan to identify and address security risks in 5G and future wireless technologies — the Secure 5G and Beyond Act requires exactly that …

It’s also long past time to fix our nation’s faulty broadband maps. Accurately mapping unserved and underserved communities is essential to promoting the deployment of high-speed service to all Americans and ensuring our investments have maximum impact. The Broadband DATA Act will help tremendously with those efforts …”

In the interview above, Brian Hoyer — one of the primary consultants for my latest book, “EMF*D” — discusses how electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation may be impacting the COVID-19 epidemic and your infection risk. Many have raised questions about whether there is a connection between 5G and this pandemic.

While unproven, one current theory is that EMF radiation — and the addition of 5G in particular — could be having an impact. Hoyer cites data from Arthur Firstenberg’s book, “The Invisible Rainbow,”

in which he catalogued epidemiological evidence showing that as electrification of the world was implemented, throughout the course of history, viral pandemics ensued.

To put it simply, poor immune function and ill health combined with environmental stressors such as heightened EMF exposure might create a perfect storm where the virus has an easy way to get into the body and can reproduce faster.

In the video below — “5G Beware,” created by Greater Earth Media — three experts discuss the pitfalls of rolling out 5G technology before its effects on humans and the environment are understood. Unlike the “4th Generation” (4G) technology currently in use, which relies on huge 90-foot cell towers with about a dozen antenna ports on each, the 5G system uses “small cell” facilities or bases, each with about 100 antenna ports each.

Expected to be 10 to 100 times faster than 4G technology and capable of supporting at least 100 billion devices,

5G relies primarily on the MMW bandwidth, which is between 30GHz and 300GHz, according to EMF coach and author Lloyd Burrell.

“MMWs … do not travel well through buildings and they tend to be absorbed by rain and plants. This interferes with the signal. Added to this, high frequency waves like MMWs also have much shorter wavelengths that can’t travel far,” he says.

“To counter this problem 5G will utilize smaller cell stations (and the technology of beamforming) that’ll scramble/unscramble and redirect packets of data on a no-interference path back to us. This could mean wireless antennas on every lamp post, utility pole, home and business throughout entire neighborhoods, towns and cities,” Burrell explains,

and herein lies one of its greatest potential problems — and threats to public health.

In “5G Beware,” Atul Deshmane, commissioner of Whatcom County Public Utility District in Washington state, walks down the street with an EMF meter, which shows EMF levels “way above the safe limit” with 4G technology. “If 5G increases this by an order of magnitude, maybe that’s something to be concerned about,” he says.

Jon Humphrey, a music educator in Bellingham, Washington who has decades of professional IT experience, compared the telecommunications industry to Big Tobacco, stating that 5G technology is our generation’s tobacco. “As usual, 5G, like 4G and 3G before it, is mostly a marketing term and most of what you’re being told isn’t accurate,” Humphrey says.

The antennae enclosures added to utility poles and lamp posts may not only be eye sores, including antennae enclosures that are up to 6 cubic feet each, but also pose a very real threat to public health. While MMWs have not been widely used before, there are some concerning findings to date, according to Telecom Power Grab, including that sweat ducts in human skin act as antennae when they come in contact with MMWs.

Dr. Linda Goggin, of Feel Good Functional Medicine in Bellingham, also warns in the film that 5G technology will turn us all into lab rats, part of a giant experiment, as no one knows what 5G will do to human health:

“We are in our infancy in terms of our understanding of what electromagnetic fields do to the body. And we’re wondering if it is a problem. We function because of moving currents in our body. That’s a basic principle.

Nerves function because of the shifts in movement of electric charge. The structure of the water in our body is very important for normal function and that also is affected by charge coming from outside the body. This whole field of the electromagnetic spectrum affects us … It’s got to be studied by scientists.”

Interestingly, many of the areas hardest hit by COVID-19 have recently implemented 5G, which might render residents more prone to serious infection by lowering their immune function. Hoyer cited Dr. Thomas Cowan, who brought up a potential connection between 5G and COVID-19 during a March 12, 2020, lecture at the Health and Human Rights Summit in Tucson, Arizona.

While I’m not saying 5G spreads the infection or is a vector of infection, it’s possible that it raises your risk by impairing your innate immune system’s ability to fight off coronavirus. According to Hoyer:

“[Cowan] is a top-notch doctor, he’s on the cutting edge … he talks about Wuhan as one of the testing grounds for 5G, where 5G was first implemented in China. And what’s interesting about Italy … is that Milan — the Lombardi area of Italy where two-thirds of the cases are — is considered the 5G capital of the European Union according to Vodafone, which is the big 5G carrier out there …

If you go on Vodafone’s website, you can see the 5G map, and it’s sprinkled throughout all Milan and Lombardi, that province up there. So that is definitely a more concentrated area.

… So, there’s 5G in Milan, in Wuhan, and New York City is one of the highest, most intense [5G] areas I’ve seen, and Seattle … But 5G doesn’t matter so much to me. It’s about the intensity of the EMF. New York was basically as intense as a 5G area already, before 5G was implemented, in my opinion. It maxes out all of our meters wherever I go. There are hidden antennas everywhere in New York City.

[Seattle] has a lot of hills in the city, and right on Queen Anne, there are two huge radio towers with probably 100 antennas on them, just blasting the whole city. We’ve had assessments there where we’ve maxed out [our meters], and even shielded rooms upstairs and it still maxed out.”

Part of the U.S. government’s plan to fast-track the 5G rollout is an offer of $9.7 billion in compensation payments to satellite operators to give up their C-band spectrum licenses.

The C-band spectrum (from the 3.7GHz to 4.2GHz band) is currently used by satellite operators but is desirable for the telecom industry as, according to news outlet CommsMEA, “It blends the ability to deliver hyperfast download speeds in excess of 1Gbps with much improved propagation ranges, when compared to higher frequency spectrums.”

In a statement, the FCC called this a “critical step in implementing our comprehensive 5G FAST Plan, as it will rapidly put mid-band spectrum into the hands of innovators and consumers and pave the way for the United States to lead the world in 5G deployment.”

Privacy issues are another concern. Already, the U.S. government banned the use of Chinese components in the U.S. 5G network because of surveillance fears.

Further, U.S. companies have also been banned from selling computer chips to Huawei Technologies Co., which is producing 5G base stations, citing national security concerns. According to Bloomberg:

“US officials accuse Huawei of stealing valuable intellectual property and violating a trade embargo with Iran. The Trump administration blacklisted the company last year, saying there’s a risk Huawei could give Beijing access to sensitive data coursing through telecommunications networks that employ its gear.

Huawei has denied the allegations. Critics also said the US government imposed the sanctions to hobble China’s leadership in key aspects of 5G technology.”

The ban hasn’t stopped Huawei, however, which has continued to produce base stations without U.S. components. As of February 2020, Huawei had shipped about 600,000 base stations to mobile phone companies.

China has also been fast-tracking their 5G networks and planned to activate more than 130,000 base stations by the end of 2019 in order to support its 5G network.

Now, with people using technology to communicate digitally instead of face-to-face, virtually all communication is being sent through networks manufactured by China. If backdoors used for surveillance are built into 5G base stations, the tracking and surveillance that could result would be unprecedented in scope. According to Humphrey, however, even the race with China to roll out 5G is all smoke and mirrors. He states:

“We can’t keep up with China on networking including with 5G. Why? Because China manufactures most of the fiber-optic cabling in the world. Fiber isn’t expensive here [in the U.S.], and it’s even less expensive in China. Small cells, like the ones used in 5G, have to be hooked up to fiber-optic cabling and since China installs their fiber in a public manner they can leverage it for use in the most efficient, cost-effective manner possible.”

Humphrey also states in “5G Beware” that the U.S. is far behind most of the rest of the developed world because it doesn’t have public fiber optics. While it’s sometimes said that 5G will ultimately replace fiber optics, Humphrey says this is laughable, since 5G requires fiber optics. “Fiber optics is safe,” he says, “it just carries light. You might as well just hook directly up to the fiber and have a choice in how much EMF exposure you’re getting.”

Once it’s installed in your neighborhood, you won’t have a choice to opt out of 5G exposure. “5G will be virtually everywhere, with the options of being able to simply “get away from it” being very limited as millions of small cell devices are rolled out,” Humphrey says.

As for lowering your EMF exposure, you can download a free chapter from my book, “EMF*D,” that summarizes most of the major recommendations.

First-Ever Official Apology for COVID Vaccine Mandates

I believe we have just seen the first-ever sincere and complete apology for vaccine mandates coming from a government official.

(if I am mistaken, and it is not the first one, let me know. Danielle Smith also “apologized to the unvaccinated.” Danielle is awesome, but she apologized for other people’s acts – she was not the premier of Alberta when vaccine mandates were enacted).

In this moving video, a town councilor in West Nipissing, Ontario, Canada, Anne Tessier, officially apologizes for vaccine mandates.

Anne acknowledges that the mandates were wrong. She admits that they were wrong when enacted and that the council was aware of that.

Anne’s voice breaks as she realizes the importance of her apology.

I want to acknowledge that this policy has caused a lot of unnecessary harm and animosity within our Workforce and community. I believe that this policy was mistakenly adopted 12 months ago. The general population knows today that the Covid vaccine does not stop the spread of the virus. 12 months ago, the municipal council was well aware that the virus spread did not correlate with vaccination status prior to this policy being adopted.

A constituent had presented to the council the Public Health Ontario data showing that by January 2022, more cases were reported per capita in vaccinated people versus unvaccinated people. Unfortunately, the outcome of the vote from the municipal council resulted in the implementation of this punitive policy. With all my heart, I extend my apologies to those who were affected negatively by this policy, and I hope that as a municipality and a community, we can move forward. Thank you.

I am moved by her statement. Anne, a small-town official, has done what no one else has done to date. She apologized. She did not issue a “non-apology apology” – she fully admitted the city’s wrongdoings, acknowledged their harm, and apologized unequivocally.

Compare Anne’s sincerity with the German minister Karl Lauterbach. Karl falsely blamed unnamed “scientists” (he was a multiple-degreed scientist himself) and refused to ask for forgiveness.

Ms. Tessier, a small-town official, rose above Karl Lauterbach and apologized.

While no one should be exempt from future investigations into the Covid vaccine disaster, Anne Tessier’s sincere remorse and heartfelt apology should factor towards forgiveness.

Anne Tessier’s apology is hopefully the beginning of a new trend. Not all future apologies will be sincere. I can see, however, that Anne is sincere, and I wish her and her town the best.

Will more apologies follow?

Should sincere remorse affect the (hopeful) future Covid vaccine repercussions?

Now published in the peer-reviewed scientific literature: “The mRNA vaccines are neither safe nor effective, but outright dangerous”

In case you missed it. Every health authority in the world should be warning the public about this. The paper was published Sept 21, 2022.

The simplest thing you can do to stop the COVID vaccines and end the corruption in Washington DC

As I’ve said before, I’ve started a Super PAC to recruit RFK Jr. to run for President.

Some people think this is a bad idea and that’s fine. Thank you for sharing your opinion. I don’t expect everyone will agree with me.

The way I look at it, this Presidential election is currently coming down to be a race between Biden and either DeSantis or Trump.

I would prefer RFK Jr. over any of these options. By far.

To make this happen, I need your help.

If you think RFK Jr. should run for President, please sign the RFK Jr. for President petition to urge him to run. All I want is your email and state.

My goal is to get 1M people to sign the petition. Please help me out by sharing this to your social networks.

Thanks!
