This week, I sat slack-jawed and shocked in my bed as I read my friend Dr. Joseph Mercola's new book about 5g dangers, EMF*D: 5G, Wi-Fi & Cell Phones: Hidden Harms & How To Protect Yourself.
The hazards of electronic pollution may once have been the stuff of science fiction, but now we know they're all too real, and with the advent of 5G ultra-wideband technology, the danger is greater than ever.
The dangers of electromagnetic fields are real – and I just had to get Dr. Mercola on this podcast to talk about exactly what they are and how you can protect yourself. He's one of the world's foremost authorities on alternative health, and in this latest title, he has mined the scientific literature to offer a radical new understanding of how electromagnetic fields impact your body and mind.
In this first-of-its-kind guide, he reveals:
• What EMFs (electromagnetic fields) actually are, where you find them in your daily life, and how they affect you
• The toll that EMFs have been proven to take in conditions such as cancer, heart disease, and neuropsychiatric illnesses
• Why you've been largely kept in the dark about this threat to your health
• How you can actually repair the damage done by EMFs at a cellular level
• Practical strategies to protect yourself and your loved ones from EMFs at home, at work, and out in the world
The coming 5G technology will be pervasive and powerful. It will also be one of the largest public health experiments in history, with no way of opting out. That's why you need to listen to Dr. Mercola. Now.
During this discussion, you'll discover:
-Why Dr. Mercola wrote this new book…7:26
- Mitochondrial dysfunction is really one of the primary ways we age and develop chronic illness
- Three years ago realized EMFs were one of the primary ways our mitochondria are damaged and very few people were warning the public about that
- Written 14 books but this is his last one for 5-10 years as he has a new strategy for creating content
-Dr. Mercola's new strategy for creating content…9:22
- Ben played a major part. Took three years to write Boundless and it had 3000 references.
- Another factor was conversation with Dave Asprey in a private party with JJ Virgin at Mindshare. He recommended a book by Ryan Holiday Perennial Seller which helped Dr. Mercola understand how to write a classic book that will be read for decades requires many years to create and many many drafts of the book as the first few drafts are typically terrible.
- So rather than write more books Dr. Mercola is going to be writing scientific reviews for journals. It has been about twenty years since he published in the science journals and thought it was about time to start up again.
-Oh yeah? What are those resources?…12:30
- One is Tyler Lebaron, one of the sharpest scientists, humble, brilliant chemist, biochemist and knows molecular biology well.
- The big one is RSS feeds (really simple syndication), which is essentially an easy way to stay up to date with your favorite websites, such as blogs or online magazines or PubMed which is really important
- RSS feeds were how Dr. Mercola was able to find and write about so much great content in the early days of his site. In 2005 he used an RSS reader called Google Reader but they shut it down six years ago.
- Would not use it now though even if it was up because Google is evil on steroids.
- Alternatives to Google
- Meta.org RSS Feed search for PubMed lets you follow as many search terms so you don’t have to go to Pub Med every day and do individual searches for them
- There has been a trend towards open access and now nearly 1/3 articles on PubMed are now free to read
- If you or someone you know has academic credentials at a university you can typically get free access
- 25-page paper with 200 references on blood flow restriction (BFR). It isn’t published yet but I can give your listeners a 25-page consumer summary with videos and if they want can send the review paper after it is published in BFR.Mercola.com
-Why the public does not accept that EMF is a serious danger to their health…22:00
- In 2011, the WHO labels cell phones as a class 2B carcinogen
- 2018, NTP study shows that cell phones are clearly class I carcinogen
- Cellphones are the cigarettes of the 21st century
- Kills you slowly
- Companies knew it killed customers (as do cell phone companies)
- Same PR agencies discredit researchers (creating doubt and controversy among the public)
- Convenient and useful
- Invisible Captured media
- Captured federal regulatory agencies
- FCC started 6 BILLION dollar program to spread 5G to rural areas
- EMF is unavoidable (unlike cigarette smoke, which you can mitigate somewhat)
-What 5G is exactly, and why would folks want it in the first place…32:15
- 100X faster than 4G. Most don’t need it now
- Possible commercials use that need high bandwidth like self-driving cars
- SpaceX rollout
- There have been zero safety studies on the effects of 5G
- As we start 2020 implementation is not widespread. Companies like AT&T lie and say it is 5G and it isn’t
- Go to browser on phone and go to fast.com and hit enter unless > 500 megs per second it is NOT 5G
- Fiber optic cable is the best alternative to 5G
- It's essentially a giant public health experiment
-How to mitigate NAD damage from EMF and how can we increase it in our bodies…47:25
- Limit exposure to EMF
- Exercise and intermittent fasting increase NAMPT by 30%
- Precursors and Chris Shade’s new liposomal NMN
- Quicksilver NAD+
- James Clement out of Gainesville will help us figure this out with his new mass spect to measure NAD+ Read here
- The Switch book by James Clement; discusses cycling between mTOR inhibition and activation
- Ketone Aid
- Water and Wellness hydrogen tablets
-How to activate the NRF2 pathway…1:03:21
- Polyphenols like broccoli glucoraphanin and moringa but don’t recommend these xenohormetics
- Steamed nettle has many of the same biochemical qualities as moringa
- Favorite is molecular hydrogen
-Why magnesium is a good supplement and the best forms to take…1:06:30
- Best form is ionic magnesium not attached to anything and that would be molecular hydrogen
- Other favorites threonate, malate, and citrate
- Calm magnesium citrate…Canna CalMag
- Hydroxyl free radicals
- MAG SRT
-Technologies that can repair the damage caused by EMF…1:11:36
- Don’t rely on harmonizers; false sense of security
- First order of priority is to measure and lower exposure
- Carnosine is my new passion and the topic of the second review
- Even experts in carnivore like Paul Saladino haven’t deeply studied this
- ACIM Mitochondrial rescue
- Ground every day but not the way you do
- BGF podcast w/ Clint Ober
- Dave Stetzer
- Dirty Electricity filter
- Acousticom 2 RF detector and EMF meter
