MAGNIFICENT MERCOLA: CHD Wins Case Against FCC on Safety for 5G and Wireless
Children's Health Defense (CHD) won its historic case today against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), a case challenging the agency's decision not to review its 1996 health and safety guidelines regarding wireless-based technologies including 5G. Watch our press event which was held on Monday, Aug. 16 at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET.

'The U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit published its decision Aug.13. The court ruled that the FCC failed to consider the non-cancer evidence regarding adverse health effects of wireless technology when it decided that its 1996 radiofrequency emission guidelines protect the public's health. The court's judgment states:
"The case be remanded to the commission to provide a reasoned explanation for its determination that its guidelines adequately protect against harmful effects of exposure to radiofrequency radiation …"
"CHD Chairman and attorney on the case Robert F Kennedy, Jr. said:
"The court's decision exposes the FCC and FDA as captive agencies that have abandoned their duty to protect public health in favor of a single-minded crusade to increase telecom industry profits."
"CHD's case was consolidated with another similar case that was filed by the Environmental Health Trust. The organizations filed joint briefs in the case. CHD's lead attorney for the case, Scott McCollough, a telecommunication and administrative law attorney who represented the petitioners in the hearing, said:
"This is an historic win. The FCC will have to re-open the proceeding and for the first time meaningfully and responsibly confront the vast amount of scientific and medical evidence showing that current guidelines do not adequately protect health and the environment."
The court's decision continued to say:
"… the FCC completely failed to acknowledge, let alone respond to, comments concerning the impact of RF radiation on the environment … The record contains substantive evidence of potential environmental harms."
"The petitioners in the case filed 11,000 pages of evidence of harm from 5G and wireless technology which the FCC ignored, including evidence of already existing widespread sickness. Attorney Dafna Tachover, CHD's director of 5G and Wireless Harms Project, who initiated and led the case for CHD, said:
"The FCC will finally have to recognize the immense suffering by the millions of people who have already been harmed by the FCC's and FDA's unprecedented failure to protect public health. Finally the truth is out. I am hopeful that following this decision, the FCC will do the right thing and halt any further deployment of 5G."
"The court ruling was a two-to-one panel decision. Judge Robert Wilkins wrote the majority opinion. Judge Patricia Millett joined him and Judge Karen Henderson, who presided over the panel, issued a dissent. CHD President Mary Holland said:
"The U.S. Court of Appeals decision in CHD's case against the FCC reaffirms my faith in the judiciary. In these chaotic days, courts can still hold out the hope for sober-minded decisions according to the rule of law. I eagerly await FCC action in compliance with the court's ruling."
"This historic case was filed by CHD on Feb. 2, 2020. The case challenged the agency's decision not to review its 25-year-old radio-frequency emissions (RF) guidelines which regulate the radiation emitted by wireless technology devices (such as cell phones and iPads) and infrastructure (cell towers, Wi-Fi and smart-meters), and to promulgate biologically and evidence-based guidelines that adequately protect public health.
"In 1996, the FCC adopted guidelines which only protect consumers from adverse effects occurring at levels of radiation that cause thermal effects (temperature change in tissue), while ignoring substantial evidence of profound harms from pulsed and modulated RF radiation at non-thermal levels. The FCC hasn't reviewed its guidelines or the evidence since, despite clear scientific evidence of harm and growing rates of RF-related sickness.
"In 2012, the Government Accountability Office of Congress published a report recommending the FCC reassess its guidelines. As a result, in 2013 the FCC published an inquiry to decide whether the guidelines should be reviewed. It opened docket 13-84 for the public to file comments.
"Thousands of comments and scientific evidence by scientists, medical organizations and doctors, as well as hundreds of comments by people who have become sick from this radiation were filed in support of new rules. Nevertheless, on Dec. 4, 2019, the FCC closed the docket and published its decision, affirming the adequacy of its guidelines without proper assessment of the comments or the evidence.
"The lawsuit, called a Petition for Review, contends that the agency's decision is arbitrary, capricious, not evidence-based, an abuse of discretion and in violation of the Administrative Procedures Act (APA).
"CHD's lawsuit was joined by nine individual petitioners. Petitioners include Professor David Carpenter MD, a world-renowned scientist and public health expert who is co-editor of the BioInitiative Report, the most comprehensive review of the science on RF effects; physicians who see the sickness caused by wireless radiation in their clinics; and a mother whose son died of a cell phone-related brain tumor.
"CHD's lawsuit was filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. However it was transferred to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit where it was joined with a similar lawsuit filed by the Environmental Health Trust and Consumers for Safe Cell Phones. The main brief and the reply brief were filed jointly by all petitioners."
You can't see it or taste it, and you may or may not feel it, but you're surrounded by electronic pollution.
It's coming from many of life's conveniences that we've come to love and depend upon. While cell phones play a big part, they're not the only culprits flooding you around the clock with electromagnetic frequencies, or EMFs.
Your Wi-Fi router, your computer, your smart meter, your appliances and even the wiring inside your walls are showering you with invisible frequencies that are doing biologic harm to your body and mind. And that doesn't even include 5G.
Because I believe EMFs pose one of the greatest challenges ever to health, I've created the first-of-its-kind guide – EMF*D – to help you detect and survive the hidden electromagnetic "land mines." While we are facing a grave situation, there is hope. There's much you can do to help safeguard yourself and your family.
EMF*D reveals a radical new understanding of the electromagnetic fields from cell phones, Wi-Fi, 5G and "dirty" electricity, and:
- How they're impacting your body and mind
- Where you can find them in your daily life
- How they can cause disease and speed up aging
- How to repair the damage done by EMFs at the cellular level
- Practical strategies to protect yourself and your loved ones from EMFs at home, at work and out in the world
And just as important, EMF*D uncovers why you've been kept in the dark about this serious threat to your health.
Individuals who have followed the protective strategies I include in EMF*D report many positive changes in their well-being, including greater energy and vitality, better mental clarity, improved sleep and more frequent dreaming. Some even notice health issues vanishing and treatments working better.
There's no question — you need effective strategies for minimizing your EMF exposure. And, you need to know how to reduce and prevent the health-damaging effects of wireless radiation and dirty electricity from within.

The mainstream media is all abuzz with the tagline that the Pfizer shot has received full approval from the FDA. What they aren't telling you is that it has limited approval for only those 16 years of age or above or that Pfizer still has no liability for injury and death in those under 16 who get the shot. Don't get too comfortable.
