I don’t make money with this technology, I get paid to keep cell phones operating as economically as possible, for years I used to keep broken phones to to repair others, in these days of glued together disposables, that isn’t an option, but when I purchase replacement cell phones, I still refuse to buy bleeding edge technology for many reasons, none of which involve safety
That's very commendable.

You do realize you're always picking on that cancer, don't you?
Cancer is caused by mutations in the genetic material, it is very unlikely that not so deeply penetrating radiation is strong enough to damage the DNA directly.
But even a slight excitation of molecules, as well as cell membranes, can affect their permeability.
This can affect the entire messenger substance transport, which can also lead to a disturbance of the repair mechanisms of the cells.
But it can trigger certain immune reactions, etc. This would explain e.g. headaches during prolonged mobile phone use.
Do you ever wonder why all your links supporting your belief are from paid publishing houses, conspiracy sites, or groups who’s stated purpose is to end the evil cell phones?
Yes, I noticed that already, but these studies are all on the scientific preview servers.
But I am not really surprised.
When the first biologists/ecologists, suspected human-induced climate change, it was only a conspiracy. The Club of Rome and The Limits to Growth was somehow still concrete, but an assumption that humans could influence the whole climate, crazy.
When the biologists and ecologists warned for the unpredictable influence of genetically modified seeds, they were of course also spinners.
When the first doctors warned against the consumption of genetically modified food or its use as animal feed, they were as much crazy as the scientists who warned about the health risks of palm oil.
Always on the side of the industry lobby that fought against these views, then as now the WHO.
Therefore it is not surprising that the WHO has come to the following judgement:
UN and WHO panel conclude the herbicide glyphosate is 'unlikely' to cause cancer at realistic exposure levels
Yes, it's all a stupid conspiracy theory, by a few eco-people who make a living here by having a few other wackos listen to them and click on their website.

But your Source is really funny.

But right, the scientists who, unfortunately, are kept deadly silent by all the normal press. Those who do not receive any extra pre-funding from industry and where there is absolutely no financial interest, they are of course conspirators.
Who could have a financial interest in 5G not succeeding?
Wait a minute, maybe the pigeon fanciers, hoping that their pigeons will soon be able to carry on transmitting messages.

Just watched #TheGreatHack on #Netflix. What I appreciated about this #documentary on #Facebook and the whole #CambridgeAnalytica scandal, is that it's one of the few #privacy #documentaries to get that protecting personal data isn't just about not seeing personalized ads for stuff you're more likely to want. It's about protecting ourselves from mass psychological manipulation and behavior modification techniques. These are techniques that actually work *best* when people believe they don't.
