Wireless wake-up call | Jeromy Johnson | TEDxBerkeley

Translator: Hélène Vernet
Reviewer: Rhonda Jacobs I’d like to begin
by asking a few questions. Who knows if they have a wireless
smart meter on their home? Okay. And who has their smartphone
in their pocket right now? Great. And who’s read the fine prints
in your owner’s manual that says that the smartphone should never
be within about an inch of the body? (Laughter) So today, I’m going to speak to
why we can no longer assume that our wireless technology is safe. Technology has allowed us many benefits. It has connected us
to people and to places, and it has brought us convenience that few could have imagined
just 10 years ago. It’s also brought us
tremendous economic benefits. If we can look at how technology
has increased in our lives in just the last eight years … It started with the iPhone, and then tablet computing, ubiquitous Wi-Fi, the smart meter and the smart home, and wearable tech, and now the Internet of Things. If we could imagine how this would look,
it would actually look like this: This is an artist’s rendition of what
Wi-Fi in our public spaces looks like. We could actually hear
what microwave radiation sounds like with a device like this. So if anybody would like to hear
what their smartphone or their smartwatch sounds like, come and see me at the end
and I can show you. But how does this affect our bodies? That’s the question I want to ask because this exponential rise
in microwave radiation can have effects, and that’s what scientists and medical
doctors around the world are now saying, especially when it comes to children, because they’re going to be
affected by this their entire lives. But today, I also want
to share a few solutions. I want to give everyone here
things that you can do in your own lives in order to reduce this type of exposure. So I actually got into this topic
about five years ago. Before then, I was a young
technology enthusiast. I always used my smartphone and Wi-Fi. I’ve worked in Silicon Valley and have
a master’s degree in engineering. So if anyone had told me that wireless
technology could have health effects, I would have thought they’re crazy. So if you’re thinking that
right now, I can relate. But this all changed for me
over the period of about one week. I started to experience headaches, ringing in the ears, insomnia, and a fatigue and brain fog
that I’d never experienced before. And I shared this
with a colleague at work, and she said the exact same thing
happened to her husband when a wireless smart meter
was installed in their home. So I went home that evening
and I checked downstairs, and sure enough, we had
a bank of wireless smart meters installed right below our bedroom
in San Francisco. So this started me on a journey to learn as much about this topic
as I possibly could. I now have a website about this, and I’m contacted by people
all around the world, every day, who are experiencing
the exact same things. It can be when they have
a wireless smart meter installed, or a new Wi-Fi router, or even a cell tower placed
across the street from their home. These are the common symptoms
that people start to experience. This is actually from a published paper on the health effects
of wireless smart meters. So, just here in the Bay Area, I’m in touch with dozens of people
who’ve had their lives changed by this: medical doctors, high school principals, teachers and students, IT professionals, and even entrepreneurs. These are people who had a normal life, and then over a short period of time,
went to where they could no longer work, where they could
no longer go to an office. Some of them actually
have had to move out of their homes because they can’t be in an environment
which is normal now for most people. I’ve been in touch with people
around the world who’ve become homeless
because of this. There are many people
that’s actually happened to. And, unfortunately, I know of people
who’ve actually taken their lives because there’s essentially
no place they can go, and this is something
that society does not yet recognize. My own life has been
tremendously changed by this. After that first exposure
to wireless smart meters, now I can no longer be in an environment
with strong Wi-Fi for very long. So I can’t go to my work
the way I used to be able to. Most environments are now
essentially toxic to me. So even finding a safe place to live
has become very difficult. Imagine not being able
to live in an apartment building where everyone has Wi-Fi, or to be able to live
next to a cell tower. This is actually a proposed
cell tower here in Berkeley. The residents have actually
stopped it for now, but most churches and most schools
now have cell towers on them. And so it exposes the people around them and of course the students
who go to those schools. This is a cell tower in San Francisco: that brown thimble on top
of the telephone pole is a cell tower. And these are being placed
every couple of blocks. So you could have an amazing home, and then one week, a company can come and put
a cell tower right outside your window. So this is something that’s happening
throughout the Bay Area, and it’s going to be happening
throughout the United States. So it makes it so that people like myself
have a hard time finding a place to live, but it also is ratcheting up
the exposure of the entire population. So you might be asking, perhaps some people
are being injured by this, but if you’re not feeling it,
it’s probably not that big of a deal. I think that’s a very common experience. But it’s not as simple as saying that just a few unfortunate people
are being affected by this. Because what the science shows
is that we’re all affected on some level, whether we can feel it or not. And the reason is because essentially,
our bodies are electric. Every cell in our body communicates
using tiny electric signals. It’s how our nervous system operates. So to think that we could
put an exponential amount of microwave radiation
into our environment and not feel effects, is simply false. To illustrate this, I actually
had many friends come to me when I started to experience
this, and they would say, “Jeromy, are you sure you aren’t
making this up in your head?” and I thought this too myself,
at the beginning. But then, a year or two later,
they would come to me and they’d say, “You won’t believe it, but now I’m feeling
pain in my arm when I use my cell phone, or when I put it to the head, or when a new Wi-Fi router is installed.” So this is something where
when people have more of an exposure, more people are being affected. And it’s not just headaches and insomnia, it’s much more serious things such as: infertility, DNA damage,
and eventually cancer. This is what the research
is starting to show. And you don’t have to take my word for it. I encourage you to start
researching this for yourselves. If you simply Google “EMF research,”
this is a screenshot of what you’ll find. The World Health Organization
is the first link there, and they actually, in 2011,
came out and said this wireless technology
is possibly carcinogenic. Now there are scientists around the world
that say it’s most likely carcinogenic. The third link there
is actually my own website. It’s there because the last five years, I’ve gathered research
from around the world that shows that we now
have enough evidence to at least take precaution
when it comes to this technology. So, isn’t this regulated? And this is one of the most
interesting things I’ve found: The Federal Communications Commission is who is supposed
to be regulating wireless technology. But if you look at the regulations,
they’re almost 20 years old. So that means our most advanced technology is using science
that’s at least 20 years old. But not only that, they’re based
on a concept which is nearly 50 years old, which says if microwave
radiation does not heat us, then it can’t possibly hurt us. But there are now hundreds of studies
that show that this is false. So how is it that we have
a regulatory body that’s not protecting the public? Well, like many public health
issues in our country, you end up having industry
influencing the regulatory body, and that’s what’s happening here. So you have a revolving door between the wireless lobby
and the FCC Commission. So that’s what’s happening. Plus, the science is heavily
influenced by industry funding. This is a study by Dr. Henry Lai. He looked at 326 studies based on the biological effects
of cell phone radiation. He found that about half of the studies
showed effects and half didn’t. That’s pretty normal for this type of research. But what he found that was interesting was that if you looked
at who funded the studies, 70% of the independent
studies showed effects, and only 32% of the industry-funded
studies showed effects. So you see that there’s an influence
in money on this topic, just like many other topics. Tobacco is another one where essentially
the industry funded science that was going to show
their products were safe. So, that’s the bad news. And now, I want to share some good news, and that is that
there are solutions for this. We are going to have to have the industry
start to create safer products, but there are ways that we can
both protect ourselves and move industry forward. So one of the primary things we can do
is to move towards fiber optics because this is a way
that we can make our homes safer, our businesses and our schools. So fiber optics are safe, they’re secure, and they’re one of the fastest
things we can use. Another way we can go is to design
products which are safer. So currently we have product designers
and engineers working together, but we could bring in biophysicists
and biologists to work together to create products that don’t just emit
right underneath the FCC regulations, but emit the least amount of any type
of electromagnetic fields as possible. If smart meters had been designed
to use either fiber optics or to emit just once or twice a day rather than the 10,000 times they do emit, then I wouldn’t be standing here today, and thousands upon thousands
of people around the world would not have been
injured by smart meters. So what are some things
that all of us can do? This is one of the most important things
because everyone wants to know how to essentially protect
themselves and their families. So, the first thing is to make sure
we use our cell phones wisely. I mentioned that you don’t want
to put the cell phone within about an inch of the body. The industry is telling us this now. So make sure you use speakerphone, get an air-tube headset;
and when it’s on the body, make sure that you put it
on airplane mode when it’s either in the pocket
or sometimes in the bra. And when it comes to kids, we don’t want
to have kids use cell phones. But if they must, then please,
teach them how use these wisely. We can wire our homes. Most people don’t need
Wi-Fi in their home. So move towards Ethernets,
move towards fiber optics. And if you must have Wi-Fi,
make sure you turn it off at night. You can get a simple timer
so you don’t even have to think about it. When it comes to kids, we want to reduce their exposures
as much as possible. So if they use an iPad, put all of the data on the iPad,
and then turn the Wi-Fi off. In schools, I simply do not think we need
to have Wi-Fi in schools because we’re filling those classroom
with microwave radiation. We can have amazing technology,
but it can be wired. And this is where I think
we’re going to have to go. When it comes to the smart meter
and the smart home, I recommend you to opt out. I’ve had wealthy early-adopting
families contact me who went all in on the smart home, and they ended up getting sick
within a few months. So this is something
that affects families, and I just recommend
that you don’t go down this path because it’s a technology we do not need. And one of the last solutions
I want to get today is to create a safe place to sleep. Because this is one
of the most important things. Because this is
when your body rejuvenates, and it’s when you can make sure
that everything’s off. So turn off all your wireless
devices, unplug things. If you have a baby monitor, I actually recommend that you turn
that off, especially at night. I just do not recommend those for kids. And if you do these things, I know many people
who’ve ended up sleeping better; they are much clearer during the day, and their fatigue is much less. So this is something I recommend
everyone can do. So in conclusion, I want to say that this
is a problem that we can solve. There are tremendous people
around the world working on this right now. And I believe we’re coming
to a tipping point where enough people realize
that this is an important topic, and that there are solutions. So I recommend that you share this
with the people who are closest to you. Because if enough people
wake up to this issue, then industry will start
creating safe technology. And once they do that, our entire society can move
towards a healthier future. Thank you. (Applause)

  1. My daughter took the wfi out of her home to protect her two little girls. She also decided to get rid of their TV. When I visit and spend the night I use the data on my IPad to watch Netflix at night. I am glad she is taking such good care of her family. She also eats organically and my granddaughters snack on fruits and vegetables instead of cookies. It is crazy how the people in the United States eat. I do not see many people caring to change their technology habits either sad to say.

  2. I also have moved to the country but now two miles away they have placed a cell tower in the town that I live in with a population of 2500 I realize they are putting these towers everywhere now I definitely get more headaches and can't sleep more than like 3 hours long story short we know where this is going and there's only one that can fix this and he will because I can tell you without him we are lost!!

  3. Ppl that have no biblical knowledge are completely unaware that Satan is the Prince of the air, airwaves. It's ALL part of the depopulation AGENDA 2021 & 2030. The 👉 Georgia Guidstones👈 in Alberta Georgia (Google👆 image) & read what has been professionally engraved on these huge stones. Look up the information for yourself. This is all part of the end of the age. We are living in the last days. The beast system is rising..

  4. governments like to sign our rights away, every time… they will not see 5G as a problem …. everything is energy, frequency and vibration said Nicola Tesla

  5. Administrations have supported technologies that are destroying the fabric of life on this planet for generations. This is not a partisan issue. This is about money/greed and more. Everyone should watch this video and think about the money trail. This about what is important in your life. Think about your children.

  6. When Googling the research on this, one must go beyond page one, as the first page is mostly propaganda. Think, does Google want contrary data to be widespread? It's a tribute to the free information society that they show it at all.

  7. My Smart Meter Was Put In Around 2012 But Never Had A Problem Untill 2017 Due To Some & Those of A Problem Just Wondering Thank You For Sharing God Bless !


  9. Im still baffled by the amount of people that do not understand the dangers of irradiating your entire living quarters with non-ionizing radiation when plenty of studies show the effects on a cellular level. It's infuriating to be called Looney when you've researched into this topic for years and are just in your assessments.

  10. All the thumbs down are sad ….good sound advice!!! needs to be herd ..ppl are just not listening .Thanks Jeromy for this advice xxx

  11. When I got sick 2 years ago everybody told me it is my imagination when I said it is the wi-fi router right behind my desk at work. Doc send me for every test he could think of, couldn't find anything wrong. But I was still sick! And here it is. Not my imagination after all…. And during that same time I realized that I have terrible nightmares at night when the wi-fi at home is on after we went to sleep. Now we switch it off every night, and time and again, if I am plagued by nightmares, you can bet money on it that we forgot to switch it off.

  12. Wireless will never be safe, period. This 5G smart meter rollout is happening in an awful hurry isn't it? I hope your smart meter doesn't catch your house on fire and that you never get cancer because your wireless turned the wiring in your home into a 6Ghz wireless antennae

  13. Hi Jeromy, thanks for a good informative (and calm and positive) talk. Our router is connected via fibre optic cable in the street, since this May. You mention fibre optic is good but maybe not if its still producing WiFi? Can you help clear this up for me? Thanks, Kat

  14. i bought wireless Bluetooth headphones yesterday. WOW, I CAN HEAR! AND BLOCK OUT UNWANTED NOISE!

    but, my forehead is swarmed with waves of heat i can't touch or wipe away but feels like a physical presence. When i touch my forehead it's cold but i feel like I'm roasting.

    also had a headache but i always have headaches. Except this headache is a little different.

  15. Know also that everything new tech you have in your home ( ex. Electric heater) had a microchip in it which will intensify emf's in my home. I notice my personal pH balance slipping off the charts health wise, . whenever I turned the heater on. It got so bad that I had rather freeze than use the heater. Oh fun! Not!

  16. If you talk yourself into fear, you will eventually be a nut job. That’s a fact. IF you are smart enough to really understand how energy dissipates, you know the energy drops off exponentially. It’s like holding your hand next to an 80 watt incandescent light. If it’s 1” or 3” away for ÇELL phone use, so be it. In my opinion this man has bought into fear and it’s the fear that will make you sick regardless of technology.

  17. Thank You. It’s one thing to know after research that this is dangerous but to hear someone in the industry admit it is validating. It’s our children, humanities future, that are most at risk. Weather manipulation is a close second threat.

  18. Thank you sir,right now i am being tortured with lots of vibration especially when the neighbours are playing music,it's affecting my whole body from head to toe,i need a medicine, it can really lead to suicidal,beacuse everywhere one goes to live it's the same feeling

  19. I've had the smart-meter installed almost a year ago and the weirdest thing was that there was no way to refuse this installation because the energy company kept calling and sending me letters. At one day I wasn't at home and my father let them in to just install the damn smart-meter because he had enough of them letters and phonecalls. He knew that I was trying my best to refuse this smart-meter and he also knew why I was doing that but still.

    I mean why are those energy companies soo cheeky? So rude?

    Anyway since there is a smart-meter in my house underneath my bedroom, I have these very bad headaches wich I have never had before. Actually I've never had ANY kind of headache before this. This headache feels like someone is drilling into my skull with an auger or something. The headaches last for at least 2 hours every once a month approximately. The worst thing is that painkillers (And I tried many sorts of them) won't have any effect on the headache. It feels like my brain is about to explode for 2 hours and my doctor and even the specialists don't know where this headache is coming from. Does this kind of headache sounds familiar to someone else and could this be the result of this new smart-meter?

    I could turn off the smart-meter ofcourse but it makes no sense because all my neighbours have this thing as well so…

  20. LED light bulbs are really dangerous… nobody talks about those. Why do public officials push them on us when they know they can harm us? Because they get paid by big pharma & they like us taking pharmaceutical products and paying doctors to kill us slowly.

  21. Three and a half years on and this sounds so irrelevant and simplistic, we live in a heavy soup of EMFs, 5G is EVERYWHERE and nearly 1 in 2 people in the western world WILL get cancer at some stage in their lives, game over.

  22. What about holding our phones in our hands? I've had extreme pain in my right arm after using a wireless device at work for inventory. Started using it in March 2019 and pain began in June 2019. I DO carry and watch and hold my phone in my right hand since 2014. Is it dangerous to hold our phones too because this is definately not an inch from my body? Someone please answer. Thank you.

  23. Faraday cage your living quarters. Sure it's pricey, but divert your consumerist brainwashed mind and spend money on something that will truly benefit your health in every way. Mesh screening is a cheap and fantastic place to start.

  24. 5g is coming … the best thing we can do is not buy those internet plans and inform our family and friends about the dangers that come with it. If they don't make a profit, they will take it off the market.

  25. i never dropped the wire … still got a plug in my PC to access the internet. a damn shame everybody else is playing the lemming and running around with their mobiles glued to their face.

  26. Wording matters..WHO said it was "possibly carcinogenic". OK but how likely is what matters. Then he goes on to say…and now there are scientists around the world who say it's "most likely" carcinogenic. Again what matters is how many scientists say that. There are Scientists around the world who say the World is flat. But that does not mean it's flat. Why because most scientists agree the world is spherical.

  27. What a fraud this guy is. To say mitigate the negative effects. Like assuming there are. Show the science and stop the propaganda. It’s also interesting how Russia is funding this to hold back progress in the US while they promote high frequency wireless as a therapy in many spa clinics.

  28. Outstanding lecture and this is just the basic of affects of wireless technology. 5G is an entirely different level and the implications are unimaginable in such negative ways…

  29. What is the device Jeromy shows at the beginning of his talk that can demonstrate the sound of the EMFs a phone produces?

  30. If your neighbour’s gun doesn’t kill you, the close 5G cell tower will. Great governments we have. Cities & big towns are wireless cancer camps. Throw away that not so smart lethal phone & go back to wired.

  31. Now is 2019, so far it has not happend anything. New celltowers, 5G is coming, new stronger Wifi-routers, more wireless tablets in schools and so on.

  32. Thank you for getting the info out!!! I’m being harmed in the fastest growing “No Touch” Crime with criminals using 5G technology!! They have already murdered 8 women and have walked away from being convicted because the work at Shreiver Air Force Base, NASA in Houston and Geoff Brady from WBAI. They feel they are protected under a loophole that the laws haven’t caught up with!!

  33. Kinda like the Star Trek episode where society sterilized itself into near-extinction. The first world is self-exterminating itself. BTW, it's kinda ironic that they're mounting cell phone towers on churches…..its almost as if God is getting even with the godless San Francsicans.

  34. are there any experiments that have a smart meter that is sometimes on or off and the subjects reporting their experience? I would like to see the results of this. It seems like this experiment would be easy enough to conduct and pretty much answer the question

  35. Here is what WIFI/CELL Radiation affects me personally.
    — Heart Palpitations
    — Fatigue
    — Headaches
    — Insomnia
    — Tinnitus
    — Anxiety
    — Depression
    — Mood Swings
    — Emotional Instability

  36. Y all Dem alien noises in the beginning of this vid n u preaching about anti cellular propaganda, ur the FREAKIN. STIGMA to sleep depravation

  37. Look at how many people believe this nonsense. 😂 All the science proves otherwise. Keep on spreading these lies. It'll all come to light soon enough, and this purely political conspiracy will be exposed for what it is.

  38. Tell me if I'm wrong, but with fiber connection, only one person at a time can use their laptop, and smartphones don't work then. So what if in a family 3 persons want to use their device at the same time?

  39. Thank you for this. I am ill at least 4 or five times a week, in pain every day with my joints, feel like I have flu, headaches etc etc. I know it is through wifi poisoning. I am starting to use organite, I don't know if it will work but I have to try something :'(

  40. we should do everything against 5G !!!!!! instead of starting to protect ourselves…. WE SHOULD NOT ALLOW the deployment of the wireless 5G at all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  41. You're a freepin' nut, Jeromy Johnson and I'm sure I'm not the first person to tell you that. I'm not disagreeing that there are significant hazards to health posed by RF emissions, I'm saying your recommendations and conclusions are dickheaded. There seems to be something wrong with your brain but I seriously doubt it has anything to do with RF ambience.
