Does 5G pose health risks?

These waves travel shorter distances through urban spaces, so 5G networks require more transmitter masts than previous technologies, positioned closer to ground level. Radio waves are non-ionising The radio wave band – used for mobile phone networks – is non-ionising, “which means it lacks sufficient energy to break apart DNA and cause cellular damage,” says David Robert Grimes, physicist and cancer researcher. Higher up the electromagnetic spectrum, well beyond those frequencies used by mobile phones, there are clear health risks from extended exposure. The sun’s ultra-violet rays fall within this harmful category, and can lead to skin cancers. There are strict advisory limits for exposure to even higher energy radiation levels such as medical x-rays and gamma rays, which can …

I’ve Never Been More Unhappy Than When I Was Thin

As told to Céline Gobert, HuffPost Québec. My name is Sonia Tremblay and I fight every day for the inclusion of marginalized bodies in society. A marginalized body is one that does not meet society’s typical standards of beauty. For example, black women, the physically disabled and fat people are considered marginalized bodies. It feels to me like the biggest taboo is against fat people. I’m a size 16-18, or XXL if you will. Even today, clothing chains don’t have (or have very little) space for sizes 16 and above. And when they do, the clothes are displayed out of the way — on the top floor, in the basement, at the back of the store. It’s like these stores are …

Politics, policy and procedure of Muellers upcoming Congressional testimony

Lawmakers wrestle constantly about policy. This is the right approach for defense. No, this is the right policy for defense. No, you’re both wrong. Pols may be at odds over how to handle issues at the border, immigration, health care or even the debt ceiling. Their disposition may be right or flawed. But it doesn’t matter. Lawmakers don’t have to be right on the policies they support or reject. Original Article : HERE ;

Mum ‘left in dark’ over son’s hospital treatment

He has been receiving his treatment at the hospital’s current home in the Sciennes area of Edinburgh until now. The Sick Children’s Hospital had been due to move to its new £150m building in Little France, on the outskirts of the city, on Tuesday.

The following day, Danielle, from Balerno, received a letter which said that Teddy was to have blood tests in the new building at the beginning of August.

Justice Dept. probing whether J&J lied to public about talcum powders cancer risk: report

Bottles of Johnson & Johnson baby powder line a drugstore shelf in New York. (Reuters) But in recent years nearly a dozen juries have concluded that J&J knew some of its Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower products contained asbestos and did not make the information available to consumers, the report said. Such cases have cost J&J more than $5 billion in payouts to plaintiffs, the report said. J&J has since sold the Shower-to-Shower brand to another company that has an agreement with J&J protecting it from any asbestos lawsuits linked to the brand, according to Bloomberg.

Delaware activist could become first ever transgender state senator

Washington (CNN)Transgender activist Sarah McBride announced Tuesday that she’s running for a Senate seat in her home state of Delaware. McBride said the experience of caring for her late husband through a battle with cancer shaped her focus on health care, particularly her charge to increase access to paid family medical leave. “I don’t want anyone to go through that experience, but I also know that thousands of people are going through it every day,” McBride said. The incumbent for the 1st District, Democratic state Sen. Harris McDowell, announced on July 1 that he will retire at the end of his term in 2020. “I’ve long looked to the Delaware state legislature as a place where real change is possible,” …

UK ‘not acting fast enough’ on climate change

She also aspired to the UK hosting a hugely important global climate summit next year. But the CCC said that the UK was already stumbling over measures needed to achieve the previous target of an 80% emissions cut. Its report says new policies must be found to help people lead good lives without fuelling global warming. Policies are needed to ensure that people living in care homes, hospitals and flats can stay cool in increasingly hot summers. And ministers must show how funds will be found to protect critical infrastructure – like ports – from rising sea levels. The committee said unless it delivered on these issues, the government would not have the credibility to host a global climate change …

Train killer ‘would panic on rail journeys’

Image copyright Getty Images Image caption Mitchell lived with Pencille at her flat in Farnham When she was questioned in court about why, on the day of the killing, it apparently took her more than nine hours to work out what her boyfriend had done, Mitchell said: “I’m a bit slow.” “If someone tells a joke, I don’t pick up on it until five minutes later,” she explained. In the hours after the killing, as Mr Pomeroy’s teenage son and other traumatised passengers were supported by the police, on-the-run Pencille had called Mitchell to collect him and take him to their Farnham home, about 15 miles from the scene of the stabbing. He discarded clothing and took a shower. By …

Future Of Obamacare Uncertain As Appeals Court Grills Democratic Defenders

The judges focused on whether the 2010 Affordable Care Act lost its justification after Republican President Donald Trump in 2017 signed a law that eliminated a tax penalty used to enforce the ACA’s mandate that all Americans buy health insurance. “If you no longer have a tax, why isn’t it unconstitutional?” Judge Jennifer Elrod, who was appointed to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals by Republican President GeorgeW. Bush, asked attorneys for the Democratic officials defending the law during a hearing in New Orleans. A three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, is not expected to decide on Tuesday whether to overturn or uphold the ruling by a federal judge in Texas last year …

Australian seagulls could carry drug-resistant superbugs, study finds

(CNN)Some Australian seagulls are infected with superbugs resistant to antibiotics, according to new research, which raises concerns that the bacteria could spread from the birds to livestock or humans. The issue has become so acute that the WHO listed antimicrobial resistance as one of the 10 biggest threats to global health in 2019. “Antimicrobial resistance — the ability of bacteria, parasites, viruses and fungi to resist these medicines — threatens to send us back to a time when we were unable to easily treat infections such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, gonorrhoea, and salmonellosis. The inability to prevent infections could seriously compromise surgery and procedures such as chemotherapy,” the WHO said. Seagull’s eating habits could explain how the birds were infected with …

Jim Breslo: Free health care will attract more illegal immigrants to California hitting taxpayers with bill

the governor said. “Health care shouldn’t be one more worry.” Reading between the lines, Newsom may have mentioned rent and student debt to signal that he will work to get new government assistance for those expenses in the future. That would preserve his far-left credentials. But here’s a big problem: The policy of expanded health insurance obviously incentivizes more illegal immigration into the U.S. It also incentivizes illegal immigrants in other states to come to California. Under the expanded Medi-Cal program for illegal immigrants, it doesn’t matter when the young migrants arrived in the U.S., how they arrived, or what they have done since arriving. A young person brought to the U.S. as a baby 20 years ago by his …
