- The Facts:
A groundbreaking study shows the strong connection between Cell Phone towers and cancer. It's one of many showing how electromagnetic radiation is harming human health at an exponential rate, and another example of industry trumps science.
- Reflect On:
There are thousands of scientists creating awareness about this, but the industry has become so powerful that they can do whatever they want. How are they allowed to continue when we have definitive proof of harmful health effects? What's going on?
Scientists call on the World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer to re-evaluate the carcinogenicity of cell phone radiation after the Ramazzini Institute and US government studies report finding the same unusual cancers.
I am posting this article with the permission of Environmental Health Trust and can be found online at ehtrust.org.
(Washington, DC) – Researchers with the renowned Ramazzini Institute (RI) in Italy announced that a large-scale lifetime study of lab animals exposed to environmental levels of cell tower radiation developed cancer. A $25 million study of much higher levels of cell phone radiofrequency (RF) radiation, from the US National Toxicology Program (NTP), has also reported finding the same unusual cancer called Schwannoma of the heart in male rats treated at the highest dose. In addition, the RI study of cell tower radiation also found increases in malignant brain (glial) tumors in female rats and precancerous conditions including Schwann cells hyperplasia in both male and female rats.
The study findings are making headline news. Read the Corriere Di Bologna article “Cellulari, a study by Ramazzini: “They cause very rare tumours.”
“Our findings of cancerous tumours in rats exposed to environmental levels of RF are consistent with and reinforce the results of the US NTP studies on cell phone radiation, as both reported increases in the same types of tumours of the brain and heart in Sprague-Dawley rats. Together, these studies provide sufficient evidence to call for the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) to re-evaluate and re-classify their conclusions regarding the carcinogenic potential of RFR in humans,” said Fiorella Belpoggi Ph.D., study author and RI Director of Research.
The Ramazzini study exposed 2448 Sprague-Dawley rats from prenatal life until their natural death to “environmental” cell tower radiation for 19 hours per day (1.8 GHz GSM radiofrequency radiation (RFR) of 5, 25 and 50 V/m). RI exposures mimicked base station emissions like those from cell tower antennas, and exposure levels were far less than those used in the NTP studies of cell phone radiation.
“All of the exposures used in the Ramazzini study were below the US FCC limits. These are permissible exposures according to the FCC. In other words, a person can legally be exposed to this level of radiation. Yet cancers occurred in these animals at these legally permitted levels. The Ramazzini findings are consistent with the NTP study demonstrating these effects are a reproducible finding,” explained Ronald Melnick Ph.D., formerly the Senior NIH toxicologist who led the design of the NTP study on cell phone radiation now a Senior Science Advisor to Environmental Health Trust (EHT). “Governments need to strengthen regulations to protect the public from these harmful non-thermal exposures.”
“This important article from one of the most acclaimed institutions of its kind in the world provides a major new addition to the technical literature indicating strong reasons for concern about electromagnetic radiation from base stations or cell towers,” stated Editor in Chief of Environmental Research Jose Domingo PhD, Professor of Toxicology, School of Medicine at Reus University, Catalonia, Spain.
“The US NTP results combined now with the Ramazzini study, reinforce human studies from our team and others providing clear evidence that RF radiation causes acoustic neuromaa (vestibular schwannoma) and gliomas, and should be classified carcinogenic to humans,” stated Lennart Hardell MD, PhD, physician-epidemiologist with the Department of Oncology, University Hospital, Örebro, Sweden, who has published extensively on environmental causes of cancer including Agent Orange, pesticides and cell phone radiofrequency radiation.
“The evidence indicating wireless is carcinogenic has increased and can no longer be ignored,” stated University of Toronto Dalla Lana School of Public Health Professor Emeritus Anthony B. Miller MD, Member of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of Canada and the UK, and Senior Medical Advisor to EHT who is also a long-term advisor to the World Health Organization.
“This study raises concerns that simply living close to a cell tower will pose threats to human health. Governments need to take measures to reduce exposures from cell tower emissions. Cell towers should not be near schools, hospitals or people’s homes. Public health agencies need to educate the public on how to reduce exposure from all sources of wireless radiofrequency radiation—be it from cell towers or cell phones or Wi-Fi in schools,” stated David O. Carpenter MD, former Dean of the School of Public Health at the University at Albany. “This is particularly urgent because of current plans to place small 5G cell towers about every 300 meters in every street across the country. These 5G ‘small cell’ antennas will result in continuous exposure to everyone living nearby and everyone walking down the street. The increased exposures will increase risk of cancer and other diseases such as electro-hypersensitivity.”

Ramazzini Institute investigators have completed nearly 500 cancer bioassays on more than 200 compounds, and their study design is unique in that animals are allowed to live until their natural deaths in order to allow detection of late-developing tumors. Eighty percent of all human cancers are late-developing, occurring in humans after 60 years of age. This longer observation period has allowed the RI to detect such later-occurring tumors for a number of chemicals, and their published research includes studies of benzene, xylenes, mancozeb, formaldehyde and vinyl chloride.
The Ramazzini research results come in the wake of similar findings from the US National Toxicology Program (NTP) large-scale experimental studies on cell phone radiation. Both studies found statistically significant increases in the development of the same type of very rare and highly malignant tumor in the heart of male rats—schwannomas.
“This publication is a serious cause for concern,” stated Annie J. Sasco MD, DrPH, SM, MPH, retired Director of Research at the INSERM (French NIH) and former Unit Chief at the International Agency for Research on Cancer/World Health Organization, France, who commented that, “some of the results are not statistically significant due to the relatively small number of animals involved. Yet, that does not mean they should be ignored. Larger studies could turn out statistically significant results and in any event statistical significance is just one aspect of the evaluation of the relation between exposure and disease. Biological significance and concordance of results between humans and animals clearly reinforces the strength of the evidence of carcinogenicity. The facts that both experimental studies found the same types of rare tumours, which also have pertinence to the human clinical picture, is striking,”
“Such findings of effects at very low levels are not unexpected,” stated Devra Davis Ph.D., MPH, president of EHT, pointing to a Jacobs University replication animal study published in 2015 that also found very low levels of RFR promoted tumour growth. “This study confirms an ever-growing literature and provides a wake-up call to governments to enact protective policy to limit exposures to the public and to the private sector to make safe radiation-free technology available.”
In January 2017 at an international conference co-sponsored by Environmental Health Trust and the Israel Institute for Advanced Study at Hebrew University, Fiorella Belpoggi PhD, Director of Research at the Ramazzini Institute, presented the study design and the findings that RFR-exposed animals had significantly lower litter weights. Belpoggi’s presentation and slides are available online. The Ramazzini findings of lower litter weights are consistent with the NTP study, which also found lower litter weights in prenatally exposed animals. At that time, the Italian journal Corriere published an article about the presentation of the Ramazzini study and quoted Belpoggi’s recommendation of “maximum precaution for children and pregnant women.”
Noting that “current standards were not set to protect children, pregnant women, and the growing numbers of infants and toddlers for whom devices have become playthings,” Davis, who is also Visiting Professor of Medicine of Hebrew University Medical Center and Guest Editor in Chief of the journal Environmental Research, added, “Current two-decade-old FCC limits were set when the average call was six minutes and costly cell phones were used by very few. These important, new, game-changing studies show that animals develop the same types of unusual cancers that are being seen in those few human epidemiological studies that have been done. In light of these results, Environmental Health Trust joins with public health experts from the states of California, Connecticut and Maryland, as well as those in France, Israel and Belgium to call on government and the private sector to carry out major ongoing public health educational campaigns to promote safer phone and personal device technology, to require and expedite fundamental changes in hardware and software to reduce exposures to RFR/microwave radiation throughout indoor and outdoor environments, and to institute major monitoring, training and research programs to identify solutions, future problems and prevention of related hazards and risks.”
“More than a dozen countries recommend reducing radiofrequency radiation exposure to children, and countries such as China, Italy, India and Russia have far more stringent cell tower radiation regulations in place when compared to the United States FCC. However, this study provides scientific evidence that governments can use to take even further action,” stated Theodora Scarato, Executive Director of EHT.

Monkey Sharpens Rock & Uses It To Smash Through Glass Enclosure At Zoo
- The Facts:
At a zoo in China, a monkey uses a rock to smash its glass enclosure in what appears to be an attempted escape.
- Reflect On:
Are we treating animals on this planet in a way that we would want to be treated? If not, why? How does it feel to know we impede on the freedoms of living beings on a mass scale, and they don't like it?
Intriguing footage shows a Colombian white-faced capuchin at a zoo in China using a rock to smash through a glass enclosure in what appears to look like an attempted escape. The incident took place at the Zhengzhou Zoo in Central China’s Henan Province on the 20th of August 2019. Was it an actual escape? It’s hard to say, the monkey was surely surprised by the shattering of the glass, but why else would they be doing this if getting out wasn’t on their mind? Something to ponder.
In the video below you can see the monkey next to the glass, with a rock in its hand, examining the glass before hitting it multiple times with a rock before finally shattering it.
According to Metro UK, a bystander by the name of Mr. Wang told reporters that the monkey was actually sharpening the stone prior to hitting the glass. If this is the case, the attempted escape idea becomes much more likely.
‘The monkey was sharpening the stone, then it started hitting it on the glass. The monkey scared itself away, but it came back to take another look and even touched it,” Mr. Wang said.
Zhengzhou Zoo staff member Tian Shuliao said that this monkey actually knows how to use tools.
“This monkey is unlike other monkeys. This one knows how to use tools to break walnuts. When we feed walnuts to other monkeys, they only know to bite it. But it had never hit the glass before though. This is the first time. It’s toughened glass, so it would never have got out,[…]After it happened, we picked up all the rocks and took away all its ‘weapons’,” Shuliao said.
Why it matters: If this monkey is indeed attempting to escape, perhaps it doesn’t want to be in captivity. There are certainly times when humans intervene in nature to help animals who are hurt or cannot survive in the wild. Providing them with humane and expansive natural, yet safe, environments to live in can be helpful. But how often is this really the case when so much of what we do to animals is abuse and murder?
Perhaps humanity is at a time where we must reflect on whether using animals or entertainment and profit is not in alignment with a heart centred humanity.
The conscious takeaway: When it comes to the CE Protocol, looking at step 4, Living Aligned, is key because it points to being connecting with our true authentic self, beyond programmings of societal norms, but instead focused and being from a space of the heart. In this space and state of being, we are living from our authentic self and make decisions from that state of being.
From that space, how do we feel about animal captivity and the way we treat animals? This isn’t a question of belief systems, rather it’s a matter of first getting connected with your true authentic self and asking yourself how you truly wish to act in relation to animals and nature. This is why our focus is on the protocol and using the 5 Days of You Challenge to learn connection. It’s through this practice that truths and decisions become self-evident, not based on what someone else tells you or what you have to believe.
Julian Assange Has Been Subjected To Torture & Violations Of Due Process Rights – UN
- The Facts:
A team on behalf of the UN has determined that Julian Assange has been subjected to psychological torture and has not received due process. Corporate media is ignoring the story completely.
- Reflect On:
Why are we not hearing the truth about one of humanity's most important and prolific whistleblowers? Is it because what he reveals hurts the global elite?
Melzer presented his findings at the New York headquarters of the UN yesterday, and yet virtually no one in media showed as only a handful of reporters were there to hear the update about one of the most prolific whistleblowers in human history. Worthy to reflect on a possible media gag order that’s for sure.
“We came to the conclusion that he had been exposed to psychological torture for a prolonged period of time. That’s a medical assessment.” – Nils Melzer
Melzer has tried in the past to call attention to what’s happening to Assange. He wrote an opinion piece in June, yet it was also ignored or rejected by mainstream media outlets. As we often say here at CE, why is the public only ever informed on things that benefit the government or globalist agendas?
“We asked for all the involved states to investigate this case and to alleviate the pressure that has been done on him, and especially to respect his due process rights, which in my view have been systematically violated in all these jurisdictions.” – Nils Melzer
Assange has stayed in prison at Belmarsh passed his September 22, 2019 release date as a judge felt it was necessary to keep him until his February 2020 US extradition hearing takes place. If charged in the US, Assange faces 175 years in prison – for doing the right thing and exposing the crimes of the elite.
Why it matters: Assange has never broken any laws or done anything that caused harm to anyone. This hasn’t exactly been the mainstream narrative however, as the media and politicians have tried to oust Assange for his exposures of government, elite and globalists around the world.
This is important because both media and politicians’ coverage of Assange’s story reveal the attempts to distract people from what information he has brought forth and what implications it has on society. Point blank, Assange’s WikiLeaks has revealed enough to the public about the wrongdoings of their government that there should be no faith in government, yet in a society that is largely shaped by public opinion, and when media controls public opinion, these secrets stay safe, even when they become public.
The conscious takeaway: Why are there truly such great efforts to silence someone who exposes the wrongdoings of the elite? Why should we not know about these things? This story links greatly to step 1 of the CE Protocol called Breaking The Illusion. We have to begin to realize that our world does not function the way media and politicians claim they do, and when whistleblowers like Assange come forward showing us that evidently, we must pay attention and not fall back into the manipulation of the media, calling Assange a terrorist or threat to national security. These are simply cover stories. You can learn more about the protocol here, it’s how we structure all of our CE news and video content on CETV.
Why should we wholeheartedly take part in a system and process where we are being manipulated to not see the truth? Do we truly want to stay unconscious in this way? Is it going to lead to a world where we can thrive? This all starts with breaking that illusion and realizing something has to change. From there, the rest of the protocol continues, but turning a blind eye to stories like this only furthers the suffering humanity is experiencing.
Game Of Throne’s Sophie Turner Pokes Fun At ‘Influencers’ In Recent Instagram Story
- The Facts:
Sophie Turner, Game of Thrones star, took to Instagram just last week to express her perspective on social media 'influencers' and the products they promote.
- Reflect On:
As we are virtually being sold something every time we look at our screens, it's important to note that even some of the people we follow on social media play their part in pushing not-so-amazing products to the masses.
Sophie Turner took to Instagram on Monday, October the 7th to poke fun at (and bring light to) social media influencer marketing. The ‘Game of Thrones‘ star went on her stories and shared a silly but message-driven video while wearing a typical ‘influencer look.’
“Hey you guys, just kind of going for my influencer look today,” Turner said in her Instagram video.
“Today I just wanted to promote this new powdered stuff that you put in your tea, and basically it makes you s**t your brains out,” she said.
“(It) is totally really really bad for me to be promoting to young women and young people everywhere but I don’t really give a f**k because I’m getting paid money for it,” she added with a fake laugh.
She ended the video by throwing up a peace with grey gloved fingers and stating, ‘Influencer life.’
Why it matters: The more aware we are of the constant outpour and push of products that are not good for us, the more conscious we can be of said influencer tactics. The truth of the matter is, influencers and celebrities get paid lucratively for helping push (usually) toxic products to the masses. Whether it is the latest powder to get you to lose weight or make-up filled with harmful ingredients – we see it all and most of the time are sold on the idea that they (influencers & celebrities alike) actually use these products to attain their looks or physiques.
Conscious takeaway: It all comes down to being a grounded individual rooted in truth. When we see the latest and greatest craze going around, we should think to ourselves, ‘what is my reason behind wanting this product or lifestyle? Does it serve my highest good, or does it feed my ego?’
With more and more of our reality being curated by those of influence, it is crucial that we become more conscious of what we view, follow or believe, and more importantly why. ‘Keeping up with the Joneses’ has become ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians,’ and while we seek the unattainable we must tune in, within, to really understand what it is we are searching for. It is in our moments of deep reflection that we find what we have been looking for is there, within – genuine peace and gratitude for who we are, what we have and how we are naturally becoming all we have ever wished to be – without need for the external or material to create that peace.
That said, we can reflect on step 1 of the CE Protocol, Breaking The Illusion and also step 3 and 4, Deprogramming Limits and Living Aligned. These steps refer to getting clear on how our world truly functions, deprogramming the limits that we accept and believe about how we must act in our world, and then learning to align and tap into our true authentic self and live through this state of being. You can learn more about the protocol here, it’s how we structure all of our CE news and video content on CETV.
