Are Cellphone Towers Affecting the Bajan Landscape?

Kammie Holder has made his mark in Barbados as an advocating about issues related to the environment. If we had 5 more Kammies…

Here is a note Kammie shared with the blogmaster  – David, blogmaster

Unfortunately in Barbados because of the #GoatsieSheepleSyndrome which is extremely pervasive, we ignore the things that can impact our lives. Cellphone towers are erected on buildings and workers are never consulted despite they spend as much as 8 hours daily exposed to low Radiofrequency (RF) exposure or so public is told.

What about the cumulative effect over time especially for persons with a weak DNA profile?

Have you seen readings on cell tower emissions published recently as mandated by law?

Some caught up in their own ignorance will call me an alarmist but thats ok. The cell phone importers are a set of culprits who are not held accountable for the millions of cell phones imported and not recycled. Where do these cell phones end up? Landfill perhaps, with their mercury, cadmium, lead etc.



French farmers say their cattle are dying from electricity generated by wind turbines, solar panels

Herds reportedly depleted due to exposure from both the land and water

Cattle farmers in France say their stock are dying off from exposure to electricity generated by nearby wind turbines and solar panels, blaming lethal levels of volts through the ground and water sources for their losses.

What are the details?

When a number of cattlemen in Cotes-d’Armor, Brittany, noticed unexplained weight loss and death occurring in their herds, veterinarians couldn’t offer any explanation. So the farmers ran tests on their land, and determined that electrical currents from nearby wind turbines and solar panels were exposing their cows to energy at levels “three times the accepted threshold for animals,” the Daily Mail reported.Local farmer Patrick Le Nechet claims the mysterious deaths began after the installation of new photovoltaic solar panels near his land. He told French radio station Europe 1, “There is a lot of direct current coming into the earth. When we see all the animals die, it is untenable,” according to the Mail.

Some herds in Cotes-d’Armor have dwindled by the hundreds in recent years, allegedly because of electricity emitted by antennas, transformers, and turbines. Farmers from nearby Pays de la Loire have also reported losses of animals near wind turbines, and a farmer from Val de Saone, in Rhone, blamed electrical currents for harming the health and behavior of his stock two years ago.The Val de Saone farmer reportedly told Le Progres, “When there are power spikes, some cows gather in one corner, others start to limp, calves that felt good the day before, die.”

Anything else?

Thibaut Bouchut of France’s Sanitary Defense Group reportedly explained that cattle are much more vulnerable to electrical currents than people, saying, “The human body has an electrical resistance of 1,500 Ohms, while the cows, only 500 Ohms, not to mention that they are not separated from the ground by rubber soles.”Breeders are not always aware of electrical disturbances,” Bouchut continued, “and sometimes the seemingly unexplained problems they face discourage them, even if they are competent. Farms close down because of that.”

  1. Mr. Holder seems to have awoken to the Green Energy Scam?

    Barbados will Launch Wind and Solar Projects and make it mandatory for Bajan’s to Comply…The Enticement will come as they encourage Bajan’s to Invest…The outcome will bring a Great Burden as Energy Cost will Escalate despite what they will say to get you on-board….

    Something Worthwhile to Consider is that Solar and Wind Farms…. “You should be careful what you ask for, you just might get it” is an oft-used proverb to describe the principle of…

    Unforeseen until this massive expansion of production capability we are now discovering that acres and acres of solar and/or wind power production fields are either incinerating or bludgeoning birds to death in mid-flight…

    Article: New Energy vs. the Birds

    For years Greenies a small but vocal corner of the population has been demonizing ‘big oil’, calling for an end to use of fossil fuels and a wholesale switch to renewable fuels, namely wind and solar.

    But beyond the howling of fiscal conservatives wanting to know where all money has gone the ‘green movement’ is coming under attack from a most unexpected source – the ‘green movement.’ Seems the pursuit of green utopia is coming at a steep price to some of the planet’s birds.

    Unforeseen until this massive expansion of production capability we are now discovering that acres and acres of solar and/or wind power production fields are either incinerating or bludgeoning birds to death in mid-flight. And the greenies who want alternative fuels now are hopping made with those who want to protect wildlife. Problem is they’re the same people.

    America’s green-energy movement has a lot of crossover members with the “save the whales, birds and field mice” crowd. For the most part those who hate big oil, love solar and wind, and scream the need to protect all forms of wildlife tend to be under the same political tent. They now find themselves facing conflict over the effects of both wind and solar farms on birds.

    No matter what solutions are ultimately settled on this much is certain: Leftistv ‘solving’ the problems Leftist have created will result in more laws, more rules, more regulations, and more restrictions on businesses which in turn results in federal agencies having more power, more duties of enforcement and therefore ever-swelling budgets. Costs to operate will go up for the energy producers. Costs to regulate the producers will go up for the government. And the tab for all of these increased costs will ultimately come to rest on the shoulders of the consumer and Taxpayers.


  2. Yes! And when 5G technologies arise those affects will be more prescient.

    People sometimes assume that 5G are just a newer model to the current 4G

    But they are wrong. They are a whole different world requiring a radical shift in soft and hardware.

    The Chinese have already laid significant underwater transmission cables. Some Europeans are not siding with the Americans on this one.

    The Americans see them as a dagger to their perceived dominance in militarism, intelligence, spying capabilities, economy etc.

    That’s why the Americans are ‘begging’ the Chinese, as leaders, not to development them for they will relegate American tect companies to second rate

    Arresting Huawei execs, etc. They are playing a dirty but desperate game, on all fronts.

    All this under the rubric of ‘trade negotiations’.

    • @Pacha

      The people are addicted to the technology. Importantly our children. The attitude to the use of technology is no different to the faulty health habits we have adopted.

    • Here is an extract from the link GP posted:

      The Main Male Hormone: Testosterone

      Testosterone is the hormone that physically makes a man, a man. It’s what makes his voice deep, grows hair on his chest, builds and sustains muscle mass, and boosts his sex drive.

      Around the age of 30, most men begin to experience a gradual dip in the production of testosterone. It continues to fall, about one percent per year, over the decades, and its lack can eventually lead to bothersome symptoms. Some symptoms to watch out for include:

      Exhaustion/lack of energy
      Muscle loss
      Feeling weak
      Unexplained weight gain
      Mid-afternoon energy slump
      Lack of ambition or drive
      Loss of interest in sex and problems with performance, such as erectile dysfunction
      Sleep problems
      Bone loss

      While advancing age is the most common cause of “low T,” other factors can contribute to hormone imbalance in men, including:

      Poor diet low in essential nutrients
      Taking certain medications, especially pain relievers, steroids, and sleeping pills
      Exposure to phthalates and other endocrine-disrupting chemicals in the environment

  3. With the price of water on the rise in barbados
    Cell phone towers would not be the problem at hand for cattle but the cost of producing food and providing water for cattle
    A cost which would ran into millions for local dairy and farmers having no option but to close their doors and cattle dying or starving because of lack of food and water
    Not to mention ground provision and vegetable which also needs plenty of water

  4. Anyone see the google balloon over Barbados a couple of Saturdays ago?

    Quite a sight … almost thought it was a UFO … or a sign and wonder!!

    Used a pair of binoculars to see as camera did not have the resolution

  5. The balloon is so high that a standard electronic camera can’t resolve the detail and it looks like a ball of light.

  6. This should be the Focus of all Barbadians as the Bl&P is RESTRICTING people from using Shields on their Meters…Not only are they stopping you from putting on these shields they are not putting them on themselves. They are not concerned about the public’s health; they are only concerned about themselves.

    Of Note: when they have many Meters together IN CLOSE PROXIMITY AS IN DENSE HOUSING AREAS THE EFFECTS ARE CUMULATIVE, it is not the same amount of Radiation.

    EMF Radiation Testing: ‘Smart’ Meter vs. Cell Phone

    Are ‘smart’ meter radiation emissions safe – or not? This video measures the pulses from a ‘smart’ meter and a cell phone.

    Smart Meter Cover RF Radiation Shield Before and After Measurements

  7. The World Health Organization classifies RF as a 2B carcinogen, same as DDT and lead. Military studies here and here show pulsed radiation can cause serious health problems, including tinnitus, memory loss and seizures. Thousands of studies link biological effects to RF radiation exposure, including increased cancer risk, damage to the nervous system, adverse reproductive effects, DNA damage, and more. The top public health official in Santa Cruz County California prepared this report, confirming Smart Meters pose a health risk.

    The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) sent this letter to the CPUC calling for a halt to wireless smart meters. See also this letter from Dr. Carpenter, endorsed by 50+experts.

    Read about customers smart meter health complaints, which include sleep problems, headaches, nausea, anxiety, heart palpitations, tinnitus and ear pain, concentration and memory problems, dizziness, immune, nervous and hormonal system impacts.

  8. @Pachamama “The Americans see them as a dagger to their perceived dominance in militarism, intelligence, spying capabilities, economy etc.”
    Who invented the original technology? Do you know what other technologies the US have that they do not talk about? The US is the most advanced technological country in the world. I recently came across an article about the 3D nano-printing microscope:a new concept in microscopy ,since it allows one to see in real time the actual biochemical reactions at the cellular level. The article went onto state that China was building the world’s largest 3D microscope. I did some checking only to discover that the 3D microscope was invented by scientist at the University of Maryland. In science it is not the amount of money spent or how big a gadget is, that matters, it is the original concept that matters and the Chinese have not reached that stage yet of being original thinkers; I am not saying that they won’t get there. Science flourishes in an environment that allows independent thought; the ability to be contrary. Why do you think science does not flourish in Barbados? In Barbados, there is what is called the herd instinct. Every one is afraid to express views that differ from the general trend posited by the majority: to go against the majority results in marginalization and financial ruin. Try going against the views held by a totalitarian regime and see what happens? China is a totalitarian regime

  9. The Dangers of 5G to Children’s Health
    By the Children’s Health Defense Team

    For the most part, health concerns have ranked as a tiny footnote in the midst of the massive hoopla about 5G’s speed and capacity, although trade magazines admit that there may be “some objections” to 5G due to “concerns over potential health risks.” In both Europe and the U.S., however, individuals living and working in proximity to newly installed 5G towers and antennas are telling a different story. Many have immediately started experiencing health problems such as insomnia, miscarriage, memory problems and other neurological issues, and there are widespread reports of annihilation of insect and bird populations.

    A United Nations whistleblower recently drew attention to 5G’s dramatic impact on health in a widely circulated series of comments about 5G’s “seemingly overnight” rollout in Vienna, Austria. Describing 5G as a “silent war,” she commented:

    “…Children are the most vulnerable to 5G depredation because of their little bodies. Friends and acquaintances and their children in Vienna are already reporting the classic symptoms of EMR [electromagnetic radiation] poisoning: nosebleeds, headaches, eye pains, chest pains, nausea, fatigue, vomiting, tinnitus, dizziness, flu-like symptoms, and cardiac pain. They also report a tight band around the head; pressure on the top of the head; short, stabbing pains around the body; and buzzing internal organs.”

    Current reports about 5G’s health risks should have been anticipated based on warning signs dating back to 2G cellular technology. In a 2004 pilot study involving functional brain scans of fire fighters who had worked for up to five years in fire stations with 2G cell towers, the researchers concluded that the only plausible explanation for the firefighters’ symptoms—“slowed reaction time, lack of focus, lack of impulse control, severe headaches, anesthesia-like sleep, sleep deprivation, depression, and tremors”—was the radiofrequency radiation exposure from the towers. The International Association of Fire Fighters then went on record as opposing “the use of fire stations as base stations for towers and/or antennas for the conduction of cell phone transmissions until a study with the highest scientific merit and integrity…is conducted and it is proven that such sightings are not hazardous to the health of our members.”

  10. @GreenMonkey
    I came across an article some time ago about the concerns you have expressed. Seems to be among the reasons the Americans put the 5G thing on the back burner. Similarly with the gene editing affair. The technology was invented by the Americans. In the west there are strong ethical guidelines before scientists can proceed with experiments that can alter the DNA of future generations. The technology used in China in the gene editing baby affair is American technology( can be found in the scientific Journals). The Chinese are aware that over the last five-hundred years, they have missed out in exerting influence in the world and want to score “firsts” like landing on the opposite side of the moon. During that little episode, there was co-operation with NASA( science works in this manner).

    250 Concerned Scientists Issue Major Warning About Potentially Carcinogenic Effects of Wireless Tech

    In recent years we’ve seen a number of credible scientific reports indicating that electromagnetic radiation from cell phones and other wireless devices is linked to the development of cancers, including brain and heart cancer. And as the world’s wireless network is upgraded to 5G, we may soon see a dramatic spike in cases of cancer, and people in high places are speaking out to warn the public.

    Additionally, warnings about the safety of emerging 5G technology are everywhere, and even the California Brain Tumor Association issued a public warning. But, we’re already living in a world that has grown dependent on wireless and bluetooth technology, with an array of consumer products like Apple’s AirPods which act as wireless transmitters/receivers sitting right next to the brain, nestled among the most sensitive parts of the ear.
    This is a recipe for a public health disaster, and to emphasize this, a group of 250 scientists from over 40 countries have signed a petition to the WHO and the UN to warn them about the documented dangers of radio wave radiation from WiFi, cell phones and bluetooth.

  12. It appears that the controversy over the safe level of exposure to wifi and EMF is showing up another case where the regulatory agencies (and many politicians) see their main goal as protecting corporate revenue and profit streams more so than protecting their own citizens’ future health and well being. See this:

    ‘Federal “safety” standards for exposure to cell towers and other wireless devices and infrastructure are outdated and inadequate. In fact, no “safe” level of cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation exposure has even been scientifically determined for children or pregnant women.

    The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is supposed to protect the public by regulating the Telecom Industry. Instead they do the exact opposite. FCC exposure limits are merely guidelines that they adopted from the Telecom Industry. Safety standards have not yet been set.

    In the FCC’s own words, “there is no federally developed national standard for safe levels of exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy”

    It gets worse.

    Their “safe” limits are based ONLY on short-term thermal considerations – meaning the level of RF radiation exposure over 30 minutes that would cause human tissue to heat up. So as long as there isn’t enough radiation coming from a cell tower (or anything else) to cause that, it is deemed “safe.”

    Not only that, The FCC limit is 1000uW/cm2 for 30 minutes for Wi-Fi and most cell phone frequencies are NOT based on any scientific studies which have determined the level of RF radiation exposure that is safe for long-term exposure.

    Cancer clusters near cell towers have been reported at locations all over the world. People everywhere (including some elected officials) are trying to keep them away from school property (See 1, 2) obviously for good reason.’

    And by the way,Lloyds of London and many other insurers will not issue coverage to customers for damage claims arising from wifi/EMF exposure”

    ‘Letter to Government from Sharon Noble – Director of Coalition to Stop Smart Meters in BC

    Premier Clark, Mr. Bennett and Mr. Reimer,
    RE: Lloyd’s of London excludes coverage for claims caused by exposure to non-ionizing radiation.

    “Based on inaccurate information provided by ITRON, Health Canada and Dr. Perry Kendall, you have been telling people that there is no health risk due to prolonged exposure to radiation from smart meters on homes and wifi in school — this despite your having received 100s of studies by independent researchers and many letters from scientists and doctors to the contrary.

    “I am now forwarding information that should concern you even if the potential health problems these devices cause British Columbians doesn’t. Even though I know that the province and BC Hydro self insure their insurance coverage, I suspect you have a stop loss agreement with protection for catastrophic claims. If this stop loss agreement doesn’t already contain this waiver, soon it no doubt will exclude any claims associated with exposure to radiation from wireless devices such as cell phones, smart meters or wifi. Premier Clark, Mr. Bennett and Mr. Reimer,

    “Lloyd’s of London is one of the largest insurers in the world and often leads the way in protection, taking on risks that no one else will. Attached is a recent renewal policy which, as of Feb. 7, 2015, excludes any coverage associated with exposure to non-ionizing radiation. In response to clarification, this response was received on Feb. 18, 2015 from CFC Underwriting LTD, London, UK agent for Lloyd’s:

    “‘The Electromagnetic Fields Exclusion (Exclusion 32) is a General Insurance Exclusion and is applied across the market as standard. The purpose of the exclusion is to exclude cover for illnesses caused by continuous long-term non-ionising radiation exposure i.e. through mobile phone usage.”’

      Huawei founder says Huawei CFO arrest was politically motivated: BBC

      FILE PHOTO: Meng Wanzhou, Huawei Technologies Co Ltd’s chief financial officer (CFO), is seen in this undated handout photo obtained by Reuters December 6, 2018. Huawei/Handout via REUTERS

      “Firstly, I object to what the U.S. has done. This kind of politically motivated act is not acceptable,” Ren told the BBC in an interview.

      Canada arrested Meng on Dec. 1 at the request of the United States. Meng was charged with bank and wire fraud to violate American sanctions against Iran.

      The U.S. Justice Department denied the charges were politically motivated. “The Justice Department’s criminal case against Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou is based solely on the evidence and the law. The Department pursues cases free of any political interference and follows the evidence and rule of law in pursuing criminal charges,” spokeswoman Nicole Navas said in an email to Reuters.

      Huawei, along with another Chinese network equipment company, ZTE Corp, has been accused by the United States of working at the behest of the Chinese government. The United States has said their equipment could be used to spy on Americans. Huawei has repeatedly denied the claims.

  13. Due to Health Concerns, Brussels Stops 5G Installation — For Now

    According to the Brussels Times
    In July, the government concluded an agreement with three telecom operators to relax the strict radiation standards in Brussels. But according to the Region, it is now impossible to estimate the radiation from the antennas required for the service.

    “I cannot welcome such technology if the radiation standards, which must protect the citizen, are not respected, 5G or not,” Environment minister Céline Fremault (CDH) told Bruzz. “The people of Brussels are not guinea pigs whose health I can sell at a profit. We cannot leave anything to doubt,” she added.

    A pilot project is not feasible with the current radiation standards, and Fremault told Bruzz that she does not intend to make an exception.


  14. An interview with Dr. Martin Pall, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry & Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University. He discusses his work on the dangers to human health of over exposure to microwave radiation (wifi) and electromagnetic fields. He explains why in his view the USA’s FCC exposure guidelines are woefully inadequte (as are similar guidelines used in the rest of the industrialized world by the telecoms industry).

    Says he is extraordinarliy concerned about 5G and believes its harmful health effects will likely be signaificantly worse than the exposures produced by the previous wireless networks.

  15. A few more locations fortunate to have politicians with some backbone are standing up to the browbeating, psychopathic, 5G pushing telecoms industry. Whether it will do any good in the long run remains to be seen.

    Portland, Oregon City Officials Try to Block 5G Installation Due to Health Risks

    The Telecom Industry has admitted there are no studies that show 5G wireless technology is safe. Since 2017 200+ doctors and scientists have demanded a moratorium on installation due to research that proves it’s harmful. Regardless, 5G promotion and installation has continued in the U.S. (See 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) despite all of that as well as increasing American opposition. Portland, Oregon city officials are now trying to stop it from being installed in their community.

    Portland, Oregon city officials are setting up to run opposition to the installation of 5G networks around the city. The initiative is supported by Mayor Ted Wheeler and two commissioners, Amanda Fritz, and Chloe Eudaly. The city feels that 5G health risks are not well enough understood to warrant installations. Additionally, the federal government’s issues with telecommunications rules influenced the opposition movement.

    Last week, Brussels adopted a 5G installation moratorium. Earlier this week, Vaud, Switzerland did the same.
