Take the Hour to Watch This Informative Discussion!
In case you missed our Facebook Live event on Monday, Dr. Devra Davis interviewed two powerhouse scientists, Drs. John W. Frank and Anthony B. Miller, about the science of radiofrequency radiation (RF-EMF), the epidemiological evidence for effects, and the precise technology that should be included in studies on the impacts of 5G.

Frank and Miller are equivalent to "rock stars" in the scientific world. Here are some highlights from the discussion:

  • The telecom industry is one of, if not, the most powerful and profitable industries in the world. The FCC is captured by Telecom and the amount of funding from the telecoms to Democrats and Republicans in Washington, D.C., is rivaling Big Pharma.
  • A thyroid cancer case control study done at Yale University found that people who used their phone a lot and had a particular and fairly common genetic characteristic had a four-fold increase in thyroid cancer than those who didn't use their phone as often.

  • Myelination, the formation of fatty protective sheets around neurons in the brain, is not fully complete until people are in their mid- to late-20s. Studies show that myelination can be interrupted by the electronic signals from cell phones and yes even airbuds.
  • Saying animal studies don't prove anything is incorrect. Every agent that we know that produces cancer in people has produced cancer in animals with adequate testing. 
  • Honey bees are essential to pollination and agriculture. They are endangered to the point that trucks are driving around with hives to be released in fields where bees can pollinate crops and then they are gathered up and moved to the next field. Studies show 5G mmW exposure fully resonates with honey bees and RF radiation can interfere with their ability to pollinate crops. 
  • Your phone is "smart", the harder it works, the more radiation it puts out. The closer it's held to you, the more exposure is radiated into your body. They are not directional. When a signal is weak, don't use a phone unless it really is an emergency.
  • Reliable information is not being provided to the public by those with vested interests. The public must demand arms-length regulatory relationships and base policy on science.

"The direction of our ignorance is always consistent. It's always in the false negative direction, meaning we're falsely reassured by the fact that there's no evidence (of illness from 5G)," said Frank. "The truth is you wouldn't expect to see any tumors yet ... the longer the exposure has been around ... the more and more evidence has accumulated that there's a problem, particularly for delayed effects like cancers."
About Our Guests
Dr. John W. Frank

Dr. John W. Frank, chairman of Public Health Research and Policy at the Usher Institute of Population Health Sciences and Informatics at University of Edinburgh, is one of the world’s leading scientists studying the social and nonscientific determinants influencing public health policies (Read his full bio). 

In his recent publication, “Electromagnetic fields, 5G and health: what about the precautionary principle?”, published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health, Frank notes that despite the claims of scientific advisory committees that there’s no proof of harm, the science is most certainly leaning toward taking a cautious approach.

“Until we know more about what we are getting into, from a health and ecological point of view, those putative gains (from 5G) need to wait,” Frank writes.

Dr. Anthony B. Miller

Dr. Anthony B. Miller, Professor Emeritus at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at University of Toronto, formerly served as Director of the Epidemiology Unit of the National Cancer Institute of Canada, Chair of the Department of Preventive Medicine and Biostatistics, University of Toronto, Senior Epidemiologist, International Agency for Research on Cancer, and Head, Division of Cancer Epidemiology, German Cancer Research Center. He has been a consultant to the Division of Cancer Prevention, U.S. National Cancer Institute and to the World Health Organization.

Miller has authored hundreds of publications on environmental health and cancer, including research documenting the scientific evidence confirming that wireless radiofrequency is a human carcinogen (Read his full bio).

Dr. Devra L. Davis

Dr. Devra L. Davis is founder and President of Environmental Health Trust. Davis was Founding Director, Center for Environmental Oncology and the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute and founding director of the Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology of the U.S. National Research Council, National Academy of Sciences. Davis was Senior Advisor to the Assistant Secretary for Health in the Department of Health and Human Services and appointed to the US Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board by President Clinton. She served on the Board of Scientific Counselors of the U.S. National Toxicology Program.

Dr. Davis started working on climate change as an environmental health issue decades ago and as one of the scientists who was a lead author on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, she was part of the team of scientists  awarded the Nobel Peace Prize along with honorable Al Gore. Dr. Davis has also authored more than 200 publications in books and journals ranging from the Lancet and Journal of the American Medical Association to Scientific American and the New York Times. An award-winning scientist and writer, Davis has authored three popular books and was designated a National Book Award Finalist for When Smoke Ran Like Water: Tales of Environmental Deception and the Battle Against Pollution.
