Protecting Against Coronavirus, Stopping 5G, and Creating a Safe Refuge for All of Us

We are happy to announce that the Stop Smart Meters! toll-free hotline has been funded for 2020, thanks to your donations and support! Thank you for helping us keep this critical lifeline available to those who need it! If you have left a voicemail for us on the hotline and have not received a call back, please try us again.

We have recently been fielding a large number of calls and e-mails regarding the Coronavirus, and thought we would reach out with some sound, science-based advice at this time:

  • There is no evidence that the coronavirus is directly caused by 5G or other wireless.
  • There is plenty of evidence that wireless RF microwave radiation can and does damage the immune system and potentially cause viral mutations.
  • In addition to the excellent advice from Dr. James Robb below, we would add the following recommendations to boost your immune system:
  1. Get plenty of exercise– especially of the aerobic variety. Sedentary habits are a killer! Cycling is an enjoyable and zero-carbon way to get around, and allows you to limit your exposure to people and their bugs on public transport. There are plenty of online resources to help you get around safely.
  2. Get plenty of sleep. Wireless exposure and late night screen exposure is linked with insomnia and a lack of deep sleep.
  3. Reduce your EMF exposure– wireless is a totally unnecessary and hazardous technology, and is associated with damage to the immune system that can leave you vulnerable to illness. There are now widespread calls to disconnect RF-emitting cells and wireless smart meters to prevent damage to public immunity. Here is a fascinating in-depth look at the connection between 5G and coronavirus from Paul Doyon of EMF Refugee.
  4. Most wireless exposure is self-inflicted in the home. It’s time to rid RF from your home entirely, with the help of an EMF meter. Affordable models are now available from the Stop Smart Meters! store and these benefit our activism. The popular, precise “Safe and Sound” meters from Safe Living Technologies should be ready to ship from our store next week.
  5. Educate yourself– we have great books for sale in our store, including “The Invisible Rainbow” by Arthur Firstenberg now in paperback that details the history of immune damage from EMF and the associated pandemics (very timely!).

Following is the most relevant and sane advice that we have seen on how to protect yourself and your family from the coronavirus. There is a lot of misinformation out there, so use your common sense and be skeptical of claims from dodgy sources. Stay safe out there and let us know if we can assist in fighting to keep your community safe. Never back down when your life and your health are at stake!

In solidarity,

Josh Hart

p.s. After ten years of listening to a steady drumbeat of sad and tragic stories of people injured by wireless with no place to go, my wife and I just couldn’t take it anymore. So, we are now working to create an EMF and wildlife refuge on our 15 acres in the Sierra Nevada mountains of Northern California. We envision a safe place for people from all walks of life to meet and organize. The setting here is unique and beautiful. There is an old growth forest, wildflower meadow, and volcanic features on the land, with direct access to the Plumas and Tahoe National Forests. We welcome donations to help develop infrastructure to host a seasonal retreat for people who are recovering from toxic environments. Do you want to play a critical role in expanding our refuge? There are currently two homes and 6 acres for sale next door to us in a very low EMF environment– asking price $275K- please e-mail us for details. Thank you for helping us make our vision a reality.



For those concerned about the coronavirus:
Subject: What I am doing for the upcoming COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic
by James Robb, MD UC San Diego

Dear Colleagues, as some of you may recall, when I was a professor of pathology at the University of California San Diego, I was one of the first molecular virologists in the world to work on coronaviruses (the 1970s). I was the first to demonstrate the number of genes the virus contained. Since then, I have kept up with the coronavirus field and its multiple clinical transfers into the human population (e.g., SARS, MERS), from different animal sources.

The current projections for its expansion in the US are only probable, due to continued insufficient worldwide data, but it is most likely to be widespread in the US by mid to late March and April.

Here is what I have done and the precautions that I take and will take. These are the same precautions I currently use during our influenza seasons, except for the mask and gloves.:

1) NO HANDSHAKING! Use a fist bump, slight bow, elbow bump, etc.

2) Use ONLY your knuckle to touch light switches, elevator buttons, etc.. Lift the gasoline dispenser with a paper towel or use a disposable glove.

3) Open doors with your closed fist or hip – do not grasp the handle with your hand, unless there is no other way to open the door. Especially important on bathroom and post office/commercial doors.

4) Use disinfectant wipes (thyme oil Seventh Generation are best -ssm) at the stores when they are available, including wiping the handle and child seat in grocery carts.

5) Wash your hands with soap for 10-20 seconds and/or use a greater than 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer whenever you return home from ANY activity that involves locations where other people have been.

6) Keep a bottle of sanitizer available at each of your home’s entrances. AND in your car for use after getting gas or touching other contaminated objects when you can’t immediately wash your hands.

7) If possible, cough or sneeze into a disposable tissue and discard. Use your elbow only if you have to. The clothing on your elbow will contain infectious virus that can be passed on for up to a week or more!

What I have stocked in preparation for the pandemic spread to the US:

1) Latex or nitrile latex disposable gloves for use when going shopping, using the gasoline pump, and all other outside activity when you come in contact with contaminated areas.

Note: This virus is spread in large droplets by coughing and sneezing. This means that the air will not infect you! BUT all the surfaces where these droplets land are infectious for about a week on average – everything that is associated with infected people will be contaminated and potentially infectious. The virus is on surfaces and you will not be infected unless your unprotected face is directly coughed or sneezed upon. This virus only has cell receptors for lung cells (it only infects your lungs) The only way for the virus to infect you is through your nose or mouth via your hands or an infected cough or sneeze onto or into your nose or mouth.

2) Stock up now with disposable surgical masks and use them to prevent you from touching your nose and/or mouth (We touch our nose/mouth 90X/day without knowing it!). This is the only way this virus can infect you – it is lung-specific. The mask will not prevent the virus in a direct sneeze from getting into your nose or mouth – it is only to keep you from touching your nose or mouth.

3) Stock up now with hand sanitizers and latex/nitrile gloves (get the appropriate sizes for your family). The hand sanitizers must be alcohol-based and greater than 60% alcohol to be effective.

4) Stock up now with zinc lozenges. These lozenges have been proven to be effective in blocking coronavirus (and most other viruses) from multiplying in your throat and nasopharynx. Use as directed several times each day when you begin to feel ANY “cold-like” symptoms beginning. It is best to lie down and let the lozenge dissolve in the back of your throat and nasopharynx. Cold-Eeze lozenges is one brand available, but there are other brands available.

I, as many others do, hope that this pandemic will be reasonably contained, BUT I personally do not think it will be. Humans have never seen this snake-associated virus before and have no internal defense against it. Tremendous worldwide efforts are being made to understand the molecular and clinical virology of this virus. Unbelievable molecular knowledge about the genomics, structure, and virulence of this virus has already been achieved. BUT, there will be NO drugs or vaccines available this year to protect us or limit the infection within us. Only symptomatic support is available.

I hope these personal thoughts will be helpful during this potentially catastrophic pandemic. You are welcome to share this email. Good luck to all of us!

Did Switzerland Just Halt 5G Wireless Over Health Problems?

On Feb. 12th, the Financial Times reported that Switzerland has halted 5G due to health concerns about the technology- specifically the beam-forming characteristics of the new technology– essentially streetpole-mounted equipment that can emit “microwave lasers.”

The next day (predictably) the global telecom industry via Mobile World Live published an article claiming that this was not in fact the case.

We took a look at the original letter translated from the German- it sounds to us like Switzerland put a halt to 5G installations because of concerns about public exposure.

Here are some key quotes from the letter:

“With adaptive antennas, it is possible to send the signals in the direction of the users or the mobile devices (beamforming) and to reduce them significantly in the other directions.”

“There is still no standard worldwide….”

“…further clarifications on exposure must be made and, if possible, tested in real operation.”

“This work will take some time.”

Sounds to us like it’s pretty much an open and shut case– under pressure from the populace, Swiss regulators are getting cold feet about authorizing new 5G infrastructure that could seriously harm the population.

This moratorium is the result of a huge grassroots effort in Switzerland to ban 5G, including large street protests and this petition that has garnered tens of thousands of signatures. Take a stand for community health and our common future.  Oppose 5G!

Robert F. Kennedy Jr’s Children’s Health Defense Sues FCC Over Inadequate and Outdated RF Safety Guidelines

RFK, Jr. to Lead Historic Case Against U.S. Government for Wireless Harms Children’s Health Defense

(CHD) is leading a historic legal action against the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) for its refusal to review their 25 year old guidelines, and to promulgate scientific, human evidence-based radio frequency emissions (“RF”) rules that adequately protect public health from wireless technology radiation. The petition contends the agency’s actions are arbitrary and not evidence-based. The Petition was filed on 2/2/2020 in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

CHD is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending the epidemic of children’s chronic health conditions. The organization recognizes that wireless technology radiation is a major contributing factor to the exponential increase in sickness among children.

“This action represents the first time in 25 years that we finally can expose the FCC fecklessness in court, and give those who have been injured by the FCC’s disregard for human health a voice,” says Dafna Tachover, CHD’s Director of Stop 5G & Wireless Harms.

In 1996, the FCC, responsible for regulating the safety of wireless technology, adopted guidelines which only protect consumers from thermal levels of wireless harm, ignoring substantial evidence of profound harms from non-thermal levels. The FCC hasn’t reviewed its guidelines since, despite clear scientific evidence and growing rates of RF related sickness.

In 2012, the General Accountability Office published a report recommending that the FCC re-assess its guidelines. As a result, in 2013, the FCC opened docket 13-84 asking for public comment. Despite overwhelming evidence in support of new rules submitted by hundreds of individuals and scientists, the FCC did nothing. On December 4, 2019, the FCC closed the docket and affirmed the adequacy of its guidelines without proper assessment. CHD’s action challenges that FCC decision.

The FCC’s obsolete guidelines and the false sense of safety they provide enabled the uncontrolled proliferation of wireless technology and the ongoing deployment of 5G, which will exponentially increase exposure to this harmful radiation.

CHD Chairman Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. will lead the legal team with seasoned telecommunications and administrative law attorney Scott McCollough.

The Petitioners include parents of children injured by wireless devices, a mother whose son died from a brain tumor from cell tower exposure, physicians who see the epidemic of sickness in their clinics and Professor David Carpenter, a renowned scientist.

Reading 5G Frequencies Using the EMFields Acoustimeter

The EMFields Acoustimeter is a solid RF meter with a loud volume and two LED light sets; great for public awareness-raising

RF Meters take microwave radiation (invisible and inaudible to most people) and make it both visible and audible. A quality RF meter is literally your ears and eyes when it comes to detection of microwaves. Because RF ‘electrosmog’ has increased exponentially over the past 3 decades, an RF meter is one of the most essential tools required to protect your own family’s health and safety. It is also very helpful for reaching out to others on the issue. “You can’t ‘unhear’ it” said one user of the Acoustimeter AM-10 after hearing the high pitched whine of a cell tower and the tat-tat-tat-tat of a wifi router. “It just sticks in your head and you think about that sound every time you are around a wireless device.”

One of the more common questions we get from people these days (understandable given serious health risks of the technology) is how to measure and assess newer 5G frequencies using an RF meter (several including the AM-10 Acoustimeter available in our online store.)

EMFields is a Cambridgeshire UK based company that has been operating for 25 years and is dedicated to “protecting people from the ever increasing levels of electromagnetic radiation in our environment.” Because EMFields’ meters have been built with health as the top priority, you can trust the levels to be calibrated according to precautionary science-based (not antiquated government levels). In a recent posting, Alasdair Philips, Technical Director at EMFields, sets the record straight about what the (ill-advised) advent of 5G means for personal RF detection:

5G The facts – written by Alasdair Philips, EMFields Ltd. UK

Small cells have become widely hated and resented features of the landscape.

Many people are very concerned about the roll-out of 5G. We attempt to address some of the issues.

  • Our current Acoustimeter (AM10) and Acousticom2 (AC2) measure 5G signals up to 8 GHz. The main new 5G frequency bands are in the range 3.4 – 4.2 GHz. Some even lower frequency bands already in use for 2G and 3G mobile phones will be re-used for 5G.
  • At present, the only use of ‘mmWaves’ (above 30 GHz) will be for localized experimental testing and other purposes.
  • In a few limited places in the USA, Verizon has launched its own ‘5G’ variant in the 28 GHz high-band. The 2.6 and 3.5 GHz bands will be increasingly used in the USA during 2019. Other than in the centre of some main cities until at least 2022 anyone with a 5G mobile phone will usually be connected by 4G, not 5G. Many more base-stations/masts located close together are required for widespread use of 5G and this will take some years to roll-out.
  • High-band (above 24GHz) and mmWave (above 30 GHz) frequencies do not travel through trees, buildings or into vehicles. They will not be used as the main 5G mobile phone network, but instead will provide local ‘hot-spots’ in the home and open areas where there are many active users. For example, Verizon’s current ‘Home 5G’ is available in a few places in the USA where a high-band-mast is within a few hundred meters in clear line of sight to an external antenna on your home.
  • ‘mmWave’ 5G will also be used to connect base stations to satellites. Individual mobile phones will still connect to these base stations using lower band (below 6 GHz) frequencies.
  • No scientific studies of the effects of 5G on cells and living beings have yet been carried out and published. The evidence on 2G, 3G and 4G suggests that adverse effects from 5G will be greater than those from the earlier technologies. If you are concerned, we suggest you avoid purchasing 5G mobile phones, tablets and 5G WiFi routers and Access Points for some years until new research has been carried out and properly evaluated.
  • As mobile technology is evolving, the technical team at EMFields Solutions Ltd are continuing to test new high-band sensors as they become available. So far, most of them are far from ideal for broad-band portable metering (due to relatively low sensitivity and high power consumption). Our first 5G product is likely to only measure the high-band (above 24 GHz) signals and will be needed in addition to, and not as a replacement of, the AM10 and AC2. Most microwave radiation that we are surrounded by and affected by will still be located in the lower frequency bands.
  • We hope these notes will help answer many of your questions regarding the measurement of 5G.

Pick up your own EMFields Acoustimeter AM-10 in our online store– use the code RESIST to save an additional 5%. Free case, support, shipping, and easy to understand instruction manual. Plus, when you buy the Acoustimeter from Stop Smart Meters! Store (and not Amazon, who are busy adding to electrosmog) the proceeds go 100% to an organization fighting to stop its spread.
