5 G warnings from the EU,

Responses to 5G and Warnings

A report by the European Parliament titled: 5G Deployment – State of Play in Europe, USA and Asia, published in April 2019, addresses  health concerns states:

Significant concern is emerging over the possible impact on health and safety from potentially much higher exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic radiation arising from 5G. Increased exposure may result not only from the use of much higher frequencies in 5G but also from the potential for the aggregation of different signals, their dynamic nature, and the complex interference effects that may result, especially in dense urban areas.”

and in Brussels:

A pilot project to provide high-speed 5G wireless internet in Brussels was stopped due to concern for the health of citizens.  Environment minister Céline Fremault (CDH) stated:  “The people of Brussels are not guinea pigs whose health I can sell at a profit.–1287962

and in Germany –

“A petition asking the German Parliament to stop the award of 5G frequencies reached 54,643 signatures, surpassing the quorum. The German Parliament may suspend the 5G based on “scientifically justified doubts about the safety of this technology”. Scientists and doctors have warned against a nationwide introduction of 5G which uses millimeter waves up to 200 GHz. This radiation is absorbed by the human skin carrying the risk of cancer, cellular stress and genetic changes, according to the petition.“–1287962

A Nosode for the Boxer Pups

One of my patients breeds Boxer dogs. She called in a panic as they had all been infested with a parasite called “Walking Dandruff” (cheyletiellosis). The remedy picture pointed to Psorinum. We gave 2 doses of 200 C and it all cleared it up. Might be helpful for some of you if you come across this.
