5G Radiation Dangers - 11 Reasons To Be Concerned

5G offers mind-blowing data capabilities, practically unrestricted call volumes and near infinite data broadcast. It does this by 5G using largely untapped bandwidth of the millimeter wave (MMW), which is between 30GHz and 300GHz, as well as some lower an

The biggest concern is how these new wavelengths will affect the skin. The human body has between two million to four million sweat ducts. Dr. Ben-Ishai of Hebrew University, Israel explains that our sweat ducts act like "an array of helical antennas when exposed to these wavelengths," meaning that we become more conductive. A recent New York study which experimented with 60GHz waves stated that "the analyses of penetration depth show that more than 90% of the transmitted power is absorbed in the epidermis and dermis layer."

There are volcanoes in Nevada's backyard. What does that mean for us?

As images of lava rivers engulfing homes in Hawaii reach mainland viewers, Nevadans' thoughts turn to our region's own volcanic history, and wonder: Could it happen here?

Head south from Reno on U.S. 395 and you'll eventually drive (literally) into the 20-by-10-mile maw of an old and likely dying super volcano, or skirt the more recently active volcanoes of Mono Lake or Mammoth Mountain. And just 100 miles northwest of Reno lies Mount Lassen, the 10,500-foot volcano that the U.S. Geological Survey holds in the same risk category as Hawaii's currently erupting Kilauea.

Why Sourdough Bread Can Still Be Eaten By Some Gluten-Sensitive People

Humans have eaten sourdough since the ancient Egyptians were grinding grains and leavening bread thousands of years ago. But as a child of the '80s, I grew up on processed white bread so soft it practically made chewing unnecessary.

As an adult I've had to part ways with the bread of my childhood. I could no longer digest the commercially processed stuff, but, unfortunately, most of the whole grain loaves I picked up from the bakery weren't any easier on my stomach. Then I found sourdough.

Solar Geo-Engineering Studies Planned to Curb Climate Change

Scientists in developing nations plan to step up research into dimming sunshine to curb climate change, hoping to judge if a man made chemical sunshade would be less risky than a harmful rise in global temperatures.

Solar geo-engineering studies would be helped by a new $400,000 fund from the Open Philanthropy Project, a foundation backed by Dustin Moskovitz, a co-founder of Facebook, and his wife, Cari Tuna, they wrote. "The fund could help scientists in developing nations study regional impacts of solar geo-engineering such as on droughts, floods or monsoons," said Andy Parker, a co-author and project director of the Solar Radiation Management Governance Initiative.

New Studies Link Cell Phone Radiation with Cancer

Researchers call for greater caution, but skeptics say the evidence from rat studies is not convincing

Does cell phone radiation cause cancer? New studies show a correlation in lab rats, but the evidence may not resolve ongoing debates over causality or whether any effects arise in people. The ionizing radiation given off by sources such as x-ray machines and the sun boosts cancer risk by shredding molecules in the body. But the non-ionizing radio-frequency (RF) radiation that cell phones and other wireless devices emit has just one known biological effect: an ability to heat tissue by exciting its molecules.

YouTube deletes entire Health Ranger video channel; deletes over 1700 videos in latest politically motivated censorship purge

In the latest gross violation of free speech committed by radical left-wing tech giants, YouTube has now deleted the entire Health Ranger video channel, wiping out over 1,700 videos covering everything from nutrition, natural medicine, history...

Over the last two weeks, YouTube has been on a censorship rampage that's apparently run by the SPLC , a radical left-wing hate group that despises Christianity, the Second Amendment and patriots in particular. Hundreds of prominent conservative video channels have been targeted for termination by YouTube, leading many independent media leaders like myself to call for government regulation of YouTube to protect free speech and end the tyranny.

Sonora cracks down on homeless campsites; police vow to work with residents;

Disabled U.S. Army veteran Benjamin Barnow is one of about 14 homeless people living off the south side of Stockton Road in Sonora who received a notice from the city they had five days to move due to the Sonora's camping ordinance.

Those interested in donating to placing a waste container at homeless camps may contact Mark Dyken at the Jamestown Family Resource Center at (209) 984-4704.

Dissecting Thin Mints Girl Scout Cookies {It Isn't Pretty!}

There is no denying that Girl Scout Cookies are delicious but when you find out what's actually in them, you might think twice about eating them ever again.

I used to be a Girl Scout and if I knew what I know now about food and nutrition, I would have boycotted selling them until the ingredients changed. We all know cookies are cookies and they are a treat that isn't meant to be "healthy." But, the cookies I like to eat have basic ingredients - flour, sugar, butter or coconut oil, baking soda and eggs. If you've been to any grocery store lately, you'll see that there are tons of options that are just that. So, why is it that the Girl Scouts get little girls to hawk these cookies year after year that are filled with artificial and questionable ingredients?

Something In The Water

Maybe your first glass of tap water in Reykjavík had the fine bouquet of a batch of rotten eggs, or the masking scent of a match struck in closed quarters. Maybe it was the stench of the Yellowstone caldera on an afternoon picnic at Old Faithful.

Icelanders are incredibly proud of their water. According to a recent OECD study, a full 97% of the country's population is satisfied with the water quality. I've been encouraged multiple times by locals to go drink water straight from streams in the countryside, because "you can do that here." (Where 'there' is, and what you can or can't do there, is always politely left unsaid.) Based on the way Icelanders talk about their water, you might think it best suited for washing stains of ambrosia and nectar off of cherubs' bums. And in all fairness, the pride is well placed. I have yet to encounter Icelandic water that tastes anything other than watery. So far, so good.

The West's dramatic wildfire season, explained - High Country News

The West is burning, and there's no relief in sight. More than 80 large wildfires are raging in an area covering more than 1.4 million acres, primarily in California, Montana, and Oregon, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.

California has declared a state of emergency as wildfires burn outside Los Angeles and threaten giant sequoias in Yosemite National Park. In Oregon, the Eagle Creek fire is tearing through the scenic Columbia River Gorge. Seattle, Boise, and Denver are socked in under a haze of smoky air and ash that experts predict could linger until the first snowfall in the mountains.
