Arthur Firstenberg teaches us about porphyrins

What are porphyrins?

Porphyrins are one of life’s basic buildings, without which we couldn’t breathe, nor could plants grow and produce oxygen. They are an indication of how at our core our biology is electrical. Arthur Firstenberg devotes a chapter of The Invisible Rainbow to explain these vital, metal-binding molecules. The standard biochemistry view is that our body’s molecules are freely moving around and colliding with each other in our cells, but in reality they behave more like crystals, mostly anchored to cellular membranes where they transport ions of oxygen and nutrients to each other. Those that bind to iron atoms produce heme, which is the primary component of hemoglobin, the red pigment that gives red blood cells its color. It is this pigment that actually gives hemoglobin its semi-conducting abilities, which enables it to transport oxygen through the blood.

What is porphyria?

Porphyria is a group of blood conditions where the body has a problem with creating heme. The disfunction may happen because you are genetically prone to make less of the needed porphyrin enzymes, or because of an environmental toxin that disrupts the process. This can also prompt the body to create an overabundance of porphyrins that causes more disarray in the normal production line. The porphyrins deposit themselves in different parts of the body, creating disease that corresponds to the particular point of disruption and where these molecules get deposited. For instance, if the precursors get deposited in the skin, the person will experience mild to severe rash and light sensitivity. If they get bottlenecked in the nervous system, the symptoms could appear indistinguishable from fibromyalgia or MS. Other symptoms range all the way from abdominal pain, liver disfunction, seizures, hallucinations, difficulty breathing and heart irregularities.

The disfunction of our porphyrins, seems to be at the center of a large constellation of illnesses, perhaps at the center of this current pandemic. Some doctors and researchers are going in this direction, as Dr. Weingart briefly mentions in his summary of the situation in this online webinar back in April of 2020. And there have been studies investigating this biological mechanism of the heme-porphyrin pathway.

“Could this be a porphyria type disease…” — Dr. Scott Weingarten

“Severe cases of COVID-19 are comparable to acute porphyria. On the other hand, the geographical distribution of severe cases of COVID-19 is directly associated to how fresh or polluted the air is.” — Zamd M et al., An unorthodox pathophysiology of severe cases of COVID-19 the weak heme hypothesis.

This focus on an illness pathway that is an integral part of porphyria seems to be a step towards thinking outside of the infectious model that some of the ICU doctors were calling for early on in the pandemic. Yes, there were some, such as Dr. Marco Garrone of Italy, and Dr. Cameron Kyle Sidell at Brooklyn Hospital, and others in Dr. Scott Weingarten’s roundtable discussions. But in broaching the involvement of porphyria, it appears that we might have to think outside of the standard understanding of porphyria and its etiology as well, which is normally thought of as simply a genetic disease. We must look at external factors that exacerbate this condition. What might have changed in our environment?

“The enzymes of the heme pathway are among the most sensitive elements of the body to environmental toxins.” — Arthur Firstenberg, The Invisible Rainbow

The Soviets had a much more intensive and some would say a more nuanced research program than the US into the effects of microwaves on the human body. They could see early on effects that could be described as porphyria. knew early on that sub-thermal levels of radiation were creating biological effects, that included effects on our immune system. And they could see that these effects were down at the electron level, which was causing all sorts of blood disorders, similar to those that would happen with porphyria.

A 1977 study by N.P. Zalyubovskaya titled, Biological Effect of Millimeter Waves, looked at the effect on rats and mice from millimeter radio waves of 5-8 mm, or 50-80 GHz, which encompasses the higher spectrum of the newer licensed frequencies of 5G, and the unlicensed, meaning no need for a license, frequency of 60 GHz. They beamed these waves at a power density of 1 mw/cm(2) which is at the upper level of the US safety guideline.

What they found has great bearing to what is happening today. The millimeter waves were creating disorders of the blood due to an alteration of the bone marrow, which led to ‘suppression of energy exchange’ and ‘changes occurring in the electron transport chain,’ all of which seemed to be at the root of the larger systemic effects. Though we are often given reassurances by government and industry that millimeter waves will not penetrate beyond human skin, it appeared that inflammation and de-myelinization around nerve fibers of the skin were just the beginning of disfunction throughout the body, with cell death and tissue deterioration in the myocardium, liver, kidney, and spleen.

In the decreased activity of enzymes ‘participating in the processes of tissue respiration,’ the scientists particularly focused on ‘cytochromixidase activity which was decreased by 37%’ in the livers. Cytochrome oxidase is the specific oxidizing porphyrin complex which brings electrons from the food we eat to the oxygen we breathe in order to catalyze the energy needed to perform our bodily functions. Since a deficiency in this enzyme has been widely implicated in the neurological and cardiac symptoms of porphyria, along with cytochrome c, the heme-containing enzymes of respiration, these Soviet studies are demonstrating biological effects from radio frequency radiation that seem to be very much aligned to the underlying pathways of porphyria, perhaps exacerbating it for those who are born with the genetic disposition, and creating acquired porphyria among the general population.

It also seemed very much aligned with what front line doctors were witnessing at the height of the Covid pandemic, baffled by what they called ‘happy hypoxic patients,’ the likes of which they had never seen. People were presenting with hypoxemia which seemed, as Dr. Kyle-Sidell conveyed, not due to a weakness in the lungs, but some still mysterious inability of the body to utilize oxygen. They were dealing with Dr. Mandel White’s soldiers again, as Arthur Firstenberg describes in Chapter , and so many of the other nervous and cardiac signals among early electrical workers, but this time on a hyper acute level.

To give another example of a study of millimeter waves, a 1978 study by N.P. Zalyubovskaya and R.I. Kiselev titled, Effects of Radio Waves of a Millimeter Frequency on the Body of Man and Animals, followed workers who dealt with ultra-high frequency generators, with emissions well below today’s general safety standards. Along with excessive blood clotting, they found that the workers had significant disturbances to the immune system compared to the control group. There was a considerable increase of microbes in the workers’ mouths, a decrease in the protective bactericidal action of the skin, and various immune markers in the blood lowered by a half, as well as a decrease in erythrocytes, the red blood cells containing hemoglobin which are essential for transport and exchange of O2 and CO 2 between the lungs and other tissues.

These effects were illustrated more dramatically when studying the same types of exposure upon mice. Upon exposure to a typhoid culture, the resistance to infection was lowered by 40% in the irradiated animals. Vaccinated and irradiated mice also showed less antibody formation than the controls. Some three weeks after radiation antibody differences were not observed, but the susceptibility to infection was said to increase by 20% and more. Shrinkage of internal organs, irritation of the lymph system, and changes to the adrenal system, and the ability of the body to respond to disturbances, were also observed.

And these were straight frequencies that the Soviet scientists beamed at their subjects, without any pulse modulations, as is the case in the real world today, which many scientists believe are the much more biologically active emissions. Could it be that this brave new world of the 4th Industrial Revolution that relies intrinsically on dense radiofrequency signals, in addition to disrupting our ability to utilize oxygen, is also prone to enhance infectious disease?

(Hospitals, as Arthur Firstenberg points out, are some of our most highly irradiated environments. As patients get hooked up to multiple wireless machines checking their vitals, and helping them to breathe, could it be that their illness is getting exacerbated even more as they spend more and more time in these highly technological places that are supposed to be our places of healing? Right now it seems you cannot even buy a thermometer without a wireless FCC # to it.)

It is interesting to note that the Soviets have had shielded rooms in their hospitals so that patients could have a speedier recovery. They had an understanding of humans as electrical beings, and acknowledged what they called microwave sickness or radio wave disease. Much of this seems to have been overshadowed in recent years by their adoption of cell phones and all of the various races in technology and in warfare. And yet the Russians still have a much lower exposure standard for the general public, by 1000 times, a standard based on the extent of their early research.

The world renowned and beloved head scientist Yuri Grigoriev tried to share their understanding and the breadth of their studies. In 2012 he and other Russian scientists and officials issued a warning to the world calling for global coordination in setting worldwide standards based on human health.

“Man conquered the Black Plague, but he has created new problems – EMF pollution.”

— Professor Yury Grigoriev, Chairman of Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, a member of Int. Advisory Committee of WHO “EMF and Health”

“We need correct control and assessment of electromagnetic pollution. There are currently a lot of new frequencies containing modulation and no one knows the results which could be a serious problem.”

— Professor Oleg Grigoriev, Deputy Chairman, Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection

They released a report that was to help the world set safer guidelines. “The Russian standards are supported by science as a result of extensive research and take into account the dangers of non-thermal exposure. The standards are also backed by the Russian Ministry of Health and are a small fraction of what is allowed by ICNIRP and the IEEE which is currently adopted in many counties.”

Today the Russian health authorities still exhibit greater awareness by issuing guidelines for home learning to encourage children to do their studies on wired electronics. This kind of understanding and one could say, respect, for our relationship with electricity and wireless radiation, is non-existent in the United States, which has proceeded with barely any overview of these technologies. In fact it does precisely the opposite and installs industrial strength wireless systems in all its schools, and always opts for the wireless short cut when trying to bridge the digital divide, which many point out was artificially created by powerful business lobbies which influenced policy in the wireless direction, when a state-owned fiberoptic system was always the best way to go. One could read the work of Timothy Schoechle to get an understanding of this history. The entity that approves and licenses the use of these frequencies in the US is the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), an agency staffed with engineers and former industry lawyers and lobbyists, which had taken over approval of these technologies from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), when it was poised to deliver more restrictive guidelines back in the 1990s.

Perhaps because it was a communist country, with no commercial lobbies, the Soviets had a more free science system, with more science based guidelines. The military of course was allowed exemption. So one can understand the skepticism of scientists and politicians on the other side of the Cold War. And yet In the US everybody had to abide by the military’s needs, and the science itself was distorted or swept under the rug altogether so as to justify the levels allowed. And now that the technology has been commercialized, and popularized, everyone has a stake in what amounts to a perpetual lie, and an industry-fueled race for perpetual upgrades. Everything proceeds as if there is no science showing any warnings.

In early 2020 some cities of the world were further ahead. A meticulous investigation by building biologist Paul Doyon outlines that there were 10,000 5G antennas in Wuhan, and perhaps 10s of 1000s more that had been in the planning to be completed by 2020. For comparison there was about 10,000 in all of the US at the time. Wuhan was apparently racing to be at the forefront of 5G and all of the Internet of Things technologies, with its AI run facial recognition systems, smart highways and self driving cars. Wuhan is the city that the Eric Schmidt committee want to build in New York and all over the country.

This advanced stage of technology adoption is also true of Northern Italy, which was very much ahead of Europe in 5G technology, according to Doyon. And they also shared another major environmental problem with Wuhan, and that was the incredibly bad air pollution. Troubles with asthma and severe respiratory problems commonly overloaded their hospitals every winter. There have been studies indicating a high association of Covid-19 with long term exposure to air pollution in northern Italy and other locations throughout the world.

Which gets us back to a very important point about porphyria and the disruption of the electron transport chain that Arthur Firstenberg makes, and that is that these immune suppression effects, as well as the bottleneck and disruption of the mitochondrial and ETC disfunction, is not connected solely to electricity, but is intrinsically linked to heavy metal poisoning. While wireless radiation has been shown to obstruct one part of the porphyrin pathway, the heme containing porphyrins from completing the final stage of extracting energy from the food we eat, heavy metals will obstruct the earlier stages of metabolism, by binding with the porphyrins that are meant to bind with iron in the actual production of heme. Heme is that all important component that transports oxygen and helps in the detoxification pathway. So by obstructing the production of heme, we are obstructing the body’s ability to detoxify.

These disruptive heavy metal poisons can come from industrial occupational exposures, but also from everyday exposures to such things as pesticides, mercury in tooth fillings, cigarettes, polluted air and water, or vaccines, which are designed to stimulate the immune system through their heavy metal adjuvants. One sign of this poisoning is a dark red color to the urine, as the heavy metal poisoned porphyrins are excreted, as has likewise been described as one of the possible symptoms of electrical illness.

“Electromagnetic fields…reduce the activity of cytochromes, and there is evidence that they do so in the simplest of possible ways: by exerting a force that alters the speed of the electrons being transported along the chain of cytochromes to oxygen.” —Arthur Firstenberg, The Invisible Rainbow, pg. 156

All of this points to a negative synergistic relationship between electromagnetic radiation and heavy metal poisoning. Between what they call electrical sensitivity and multiple chemical sensitivity. This could be simply because the more metal one has in one’s body, the more electricity can have an effect on you, the more your body acts like an antenna, and the more the activity of the ETC can get slowed or disrupted. There are several theories for how this occurs. One theory was that it was the force of EMF which was competing with the chemical forces of our metabolism. Another related theory was that the iron atoms in the porphyrin containing enzymes were set into deviating motion by the oscillating electric fields, interfering with their ability to transport electrons. Either way, it was as Arthur Firstenberg describes it, “like rain on a campfire,” dousing “the flames of metabolism.”

‘A slow asphyxiation’

Arthur Firstenberg describes what was happening to the soldiers, starting from the US Civil War, with the mysterious epidemics of heart disease, and to the workers who were being exposed to high levels of radiofrequency radiation, and eventually to all of us as our world became electrified and we adopted these technologies into our day to day lives, as a kind of ‘slow asphyxiation.’

What was commonly acknowledged as electrical sickness, or neurasthenia, in the 19th century, came to be called by many other names into the 20th. Soldier’s heart, irritable heart, effort syndrome, anxiety disorder, chronic fatigue syndrome, myalgic encephalomyelitis, chemical and electrical sensitivity, all of which is slowly beginning to be understood as porphyria-related, which was already known as ‘the little imitator,’ because it can affect so many different organs and mimic yet so many other conditions.

Arthur Firstenberg writes of Dr. William E. Morton, a professor of occupational and environmental medicine at Oregon Health Sciences University, who ran a clinic for ‘puzzling illnesses,’ and discovered many of these correlations in the 1990s. He widened the understanding of porphyria as not only sensitivity to sulfa drugs, as was the common understanding during purer times. The post-war petroleum chemical revolution introduced 1000s of synthetic chemicals into everyday life, and perhaps 1000s more triggers for chemical sensitivities. Morton believed porphyria had become more common, with perhaps up to 10% of the population being affected. Though for most it would take the form of a chronic disease with mild systems.

Firstenberg points out that it can also be the underpinning of what we always assumed were life-style related illnesses, such as diabetes or heart disease, which were practically non-existent in the days before electrification. One can see such co-relations spelled out in Samuel Milham’s work, as well as in Arthur Firstenberg’s charts in the Invisible Rainbow, co-relating heart disease mortality with a state’s level of electrification. This would make sense as these are problems to do with metabolism, and strangely, these are also the co-morbidities that we are told puts us at much greater risk with Covid-19.

Because of all these inter-relationships and what appear to be exogenous factors, many ES and MCS sufferers criticize the use of the word ‘sensitivity’ in describing something they consider more accurately termed, ‘poisoning.’ As his practice focused on occupational hazards, it would seem that Dr. Morton would have agreed. If that is the case, then porphyria must likewise be, more often than not, due to poisoning. And if there is a relationship between Covid 19 and porphyria—as some are investigating—then so must Covid, and methods of detox must be looked into.

“These patients continually gulped air not because they were neurotic, but because they really could not get enough of it. You might as well have put them in an atmosphere that contained only 15 percent oxygen instead of 21 percent, or transported hem to an altitude of 15,000 feet. Their chests hurt, and their hearts beat fast, not because of panic, but because they craved air. And their hearts craved oxygen, not because their coronary arteries were blocked, but because their cells could not fully utilize the air they were breathing.” — Arthur Firstenberg, The Invisible Rainbow, discussing “soldier’s heart,” pg. 189

“It is as if 10s of 1000s of my fellow New Yorkers are on a plane at 30,000 feet and the cabin pressure is slowly being let out…I have never been a mountain climber… but I suspect that the patients I am seeing in front of me look most like as if a person was dropped off on the top of Mount Everest without time to acclimate…

“I fear…that the method that we program the ventilator, one based on a notion of respiratory failure as opposed to oxygen failure…is actually doing more harm than good.”

— Dr. Cameron Kyle Sidell

Treating his patients as one would for heavy metal poisoning worked for 1950s porphyrinologist Henry Peters, who found that the presence of zinc in his patients’ urine (and not the blood) co-related more with their porphyria symptoms than the levels of the actual excreted porphyrins. Though zinc is considered a beneficial mineral and immune booster, Firstenberg tells us, it is also very easy to have an overload, especially for those who are prone to porphyrin deficiencies. And so Peters tried chelation therapy to reduce the load and achieved success, with his patients remaining symptom free for several years. (pg. 154)

Traditional treatments for porphyria include, strangely, periodic phlebotomies, and the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine. Hydroxychloroquine has also been used off label to treat rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, as has chelation therapy. Chelation therapy was found, serendipitously, to improve heart disease, and to be helpful with cancer and chronic fatigue syndrome, and lupus.

When you consider studies that have found that the malaria parasite is also dependent on heavy metals all of these interconnections begin to make a bit more sense. Perhaps the secret of success of antivirals like quinine or hydroxychloroquine in treating malaria is that they eliminate the heavy metals upon which the microorganisms depend, and in effect are acting as chelators.

There are also natural chelators, such as garlic and vitamin C, that will not deplete the beneficial minerals. There was a good record of success in China treating Covid with intravenous Vitamin C, a known anti-oxidant and natural type of chelator. It was heartening to hear that New York City hospitals had also begun to try this, though not at the levels the Chinese protocol recommended.

“It is unlawful under the FTC Act, 15 U.S.C Sec. 41 et seq. to advertise that a product or service can prevent, treat, or cure human disease unless you possess competent and reliable scientific evidence, including, when appropriate, well-controlled human clinical studies.” FCC Warning to Dr. Brownstein

There were reports from a small naturopath clinic in Michigan of 100% success with high doses of Vitamins A, C, D, and iodine. For those with lung problems nebulizing hydrogen peroxide and iodine. As well as intravenous Vitamin C, and ozone therapy for those patients with more serious illness. The small naturapath clinics using these kinds of modalities seemed to be having more success than the large state of the art hospitals, who were rushing patients onto ventilators. But the ongoing war between allopathic and naturopathic medicine would never allow such cheap treatments to be given serious consideration.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations raided Allure Medical for an alleged “federal violation.” Eric Seals, Detroit Free Press. According to SRQ Magazine, Allure Medical was offering high-dose intravenous vitamin C therapy to front-line employees who are at risk of contracting the virus and to existing COVID-19 patients. April 23, 2020

(“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.” —Dr. Arnold Relman, former chief editor for the New England Journal of Medicine, 2002.

Dr. Didier Raoult, a celebrated French virologist published a study early on showing thousands of patients treated successfully with a combination of hydroxychloroquine and antibiotic azithromyacin. Dr. Vladimir Zelenko added zinc to his protocol, and was able to lessen the hydroxychloroquine dose, treating over a thousand patients in his family practice successfully, with one death of an individual who presented at a late stage of illness. Dr. Zelenko abruptly retired from practice in an unceremonial video in May of 2020, after giving many interviews of his promising therapy, which he said he put together simply after researching the medical literature. His website still offers tele consultations and the actual protocol

Fortunately Dr. Brownstein is still practicing and has started compiling his important work and patient experience in more formal way.

The ozone therapy that he uses for severe cases is another modality that is viewed with great distrust by mainstream medicine. The caution is understandable as ozone, a naturally occurring gas in the upper layer of the atmosphere, is known to be very toxic if inhaled, and it would seem a heightened exposure to oxygen should very well create an overload of free radicals. But if done correctly it seems a paradoxical effect occurs, as an Italian study from the 1990s notes, that can actually “stimulate the increase of cellular anti-oxidant enzymes, eventually inhibiting the oxidative stress.”

Dr. Mahendran Ponnuturai, a cardiologist who runs a wellness clinic in Malaysia and India, states that ozone therapy increases the amount of available oxygen 300x. It improves and enhances the ability to transport oxygen to the entire cellular system, and improves the performance of all organs of the body by improving the tissue perfusion of oxygen.

Dr. Robert Rowen has compiled his experiences of trying to help Sierra Leoneans with the Ebola crisis, and has recorded that the few surviving patients had in fact received ozone, though this was not publicly advertised, and word of any positive outcome through this modality was not welcome.

Another treatment that is being received with skepticism has come out of Madagascar, where President Rajoelina has announced a potential cure based on indigenous herbs and on Artemisia, a plant imported from China in the 1970s to treat malaria. Traditional Chinese Medicine scientist Tu Youyou had uncovered the plant when she was on a quest to develop an effective drug for the parasitic disease.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is tuyouyou.jpg
Tu Youyou receives the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2015 for her discoveries concerning a novel therapy against Malaria, using artemisia.

It is quite a mythological story. She and her team pored through Ancient Medicine texts, and found inspiration from Ge Hong, a Chinese Daoist of the 4th century, who had written many medical books. In ‘Small Books on Emergency Aid,’ they discovered sweet wormwood, also known as artemisia annua, where it was listed as a remedy for fever and malaria-type symptoms.

The kind of artemesia that grows in China is special, as it contains artemisinin. Tu Youyou created formulations based on the extract which are said to be the most effective anti-malaria drugs available. She was also able to develop it into a remedy for lupus erythematosus. At the age of 84 she won the Nobel prize in 2015 for Physiology or Medicine.

Strangely that same year another

Drs. Henry Lai and Narendha Singh of Washington State University have also been working with this extract in very promising cancer research for over a decade. It is somewhat serendipitous because before this work these scientists were some of the most important researchers in radio frequency radiation. In the mid 1990s, on the eve of the great Telecommunications Act of 1996, said to be the most lobbied bill in history, they had discovered that microwaves, precisely of the type that was to be used with cell phones, will create single and double strand DNA breaks, which we know can alter biological functions and eventually lead to cancer. Their work was subsequently ‘wargamed’ by Motorola, and when their findings started being replicated by others all funding for microwave research dried up. Drs. Lai and Singh subsequently concentrated on cancer research, and have been working on a cancer treatment that is based on the verysame anti-malarial and anti-lupus plant that is now being touted by the President of Madagascar as a cure for Covid-19.

Could this be a ‘sensitized chelation’ strategy?

There is a surprising premise by which Lai and Singh’s method is said to work, which is that because cancer cells are iron rich and need more iron to reproduce, by tagging the artemisinin with more iron, or by simply adding iron, they hyper sensitize the cancer cells to the effects of artemisin. Perhaps Lai and Singh’s method of combining iron with artemisinin is instructive for the understanding of the workings of the current zinc/hydroxychloroquine strategy in the fight against Covid-19.

The current thinking is that hydroxychloroquine is what opens up the zinc channel allowing the zinc to enter the cell, which then blocks the ability of the virus to replicate itself. One can’t help wondering, keeping in mind the work by Henry Peters, and his discovery of zinc as a heavy metal toxin in his porphyria patients, could it be that zinc is pairing with hydroxychloroquine not as a viral obstruction so much as a sort of sensitized chelation strategy, the kind that Lai and Singh seem to have developed, though they themselves may not describe it that way. That is to say zinc is sensitizing the poisoned cells even more, so that the poisoned cells can be more easily eliminated from the system, with less harm to the healthy cells, and less toxic side effects. And that is why the use of zinc can allow for a lower dosage of hydroxychloroquine, as in Dr. Zelenko’s protocol compared to that of Dr. Didier Raoult’s, which foregoes zinc. This could mean that the illness had a great deal more to do with heavy metal poisoning, combined with microwave sickness. You might not even need a pathogen to present with a SARS like illness, but at the very least it could make you more susceptible to one.

Mysterious ‘long haulers’

A heart breaking article from a young science writer for the Atlantic has compiled a profile of nine so-called ‘long haulers’ who have been suffering with unidentifiable symptoms their doctors have not been able to put their finger on, and in many cases not even been able to obtain a test for, but which they themselves are sure is Covid-19.

In the second paragraph he describes a young 32 year old lady’s symptoms: “Over the next few days, she developed a cough, chest pain, aching joints, and a prickling sensation on her skin. After a week of bed rest, she started improving. But on day 12, every old symptom returned, amplified and with reinforcements: She spiked an intermittent fever, lost her sense of taste and smell, and struggled to breathe.”

He describes, “As many people reported “brain fogs” and concentration challenges as coughs or fevers. Some have experienced hallucinations, delirium, short-term memory loss, or strange vibrating sensations when they touch surfaces. Others are likely having problems with their sympathetic nervous system, which controls unconscious processes like heartbeats and breathing: They’ll be out of breath even when their oxygen level is normal, or experience what feel like heart attacks even though EKG readings and chest X-rays are clear. These symptoms wax, wane, and warp over time. “It really is a grab bag,” said Davis, who is a co-author of the Body Politic survey. “Every day you wake up and you might have a different symptom.””

By the end of the article the writer writes of ‘WOMIs—women with mysterious illnesses,’ dealing with conditions like ME/CFS, fibromyalgia, and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. They disproportionately affect women; have unclear causes, complex but debilitating symptoms, no treatments, are hard to diagnose and easy to dismiss. A large proportion of the members have chemical and electrical sensitivity and have said the symptoms of these newly ill young people sound like their own.

And though the writer reaches the understandable conclusion that we have to take this virus more seriously than we are, he seems to have inadvertently pointed to what may be a different cause to this illness, or constellation of illnesses, than the virus. In fact some of their symptoms (heart attack sensations with normal ekgs) sound just like the mysterious ‘soldier’s heart’ that Dr. Mandell Cohen was studying during WWII. Could the prickling and strange vibrating symptoms, the ‘fizzing,’ as reported by this New York Post article, the erratic heart beats, the loss of taste and smell, all point the way to something more electrical in nature?

“I have no doubt in my mind that, at the present time, the greatest polluting element in the earth’s environment is the proliferation of electromagnetic fields.” — Robert Becker

There is obviously no one clear cause or ability to prove one clear cause to this pandemic. But with so many elements at play, it would seem myopic not to consider them all as possible factors. A recent, very balanced paper by Dr. Beverly Rubik studied the literature on wireless bioeffects and Covid-19 as it unfolded in 2020, trying to ascertain if there was any kind of relationship. She notes that the CDC has stated there are 3 pillars in all disease, what is called the epidemiological triad: 1) the agent, or gene that’s gone awry; 2) the overall health of host; and 3) the environment. It seemed to her most of the attention was on the virus, with some notice of co-morbidities. But nobody was talking about the environment.

In the spring of 2020 a group of German doctors wrote an open letter to their Chancellor and ministers of the federal government, asking them to do just that. They claimed a connection between mobile phone technology, weakness of immune system and the devastating Corona virus and called for a reduction of the RF burden. 

Some doctors, such as Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, whose specialty is neurological disease, as a matter of course investigates the electromagnetic condition of his patients’ homes, particularly their bedrooms. He himself earned a Building Biologist degree in order to better understand mitigation strategies. It would make sense even to study their places of work, their typical transportation routes, and even to have a good look at any recent upgrades in technological infrastructure in their community.

Vaccine history would also be very important to know, as this could be a source of heavy metal exposure that could, in addition to increasing allergies and chemical sensitivity, also be making a person more sensitive to their electromagnetic environment. Both Italy and China were said to have embarked on hyper-immunization programs in the months prior to their Covid outbreak. Italy was just ending its lifetime compulsory vaccination program, another WHO? and Bill Gates initiative meant to counter growing vaccine hesitancy in Europe, what the WHO had declared was one of the world’s biggest health threats.

Dr. Rubik notes the papers linking 5G wireless infrastructure with initiation outbreaks in places like, South Korea, Northern Italy, New York City, Southern California, Silicon Valley, Seattle, but also noted that there was also outbreaks in places with very little wireless. But could there be other factors that no one is taking into account?

“The ionosphere is charged to an average of 300,000 volts at all times and it provides the power for the global electrical circuit that flows through every one of us. Power line radiation is very weak by the time it travels from the surface of the Earth to the ionosphere. In contrast, the thousands of planned 5G satellites will be located in the magnetosphere and will work the full power of their radiation upon it.

“You cannot contaminate the global electrical circuit with millions of full-power, pulsed, modulated electronic signals without destroying all of life.”

In January of 2020 Elon Musk’s Starlink was still in beta testing phase and was set to turn on 450 of its 40,000 by February of 2020. Since then, thousands of satellites are being launched in an effort to make highspeed wireless internet accessible anywhere on the globe, with a planned 100,000 new satellites set to be positioned in the earth’s magnetosphere, which would be a 10,000 fold increase to what already exists. Arthur Firstenberg has been trying to alert the world about the massive instability this would cause, not necessarily from the power levels of the signals reaching the earth, but to the changes it would create to the global electrical circuit in which we have evolved and upon which we all depend.

The global electric circuit is the term for the course of flow of electricity through the various protective layers of our atmosphere, that mediate the flow of electrons from the solar wind and the plasma from the stars, down to the earth through thunder storms and positively charged rain, counteracted by the uranium and rocks and soil in and on the earth, that send the negatively charged ions back up again in fair weather to complete the circuit.

The most predominant stable resonance of the earth-ionosphere cavity was discovered to be 7.83 cycles per second, by scientist Winifried Otto Schumann, who calculated the resonances in 1957. This falls within the range of human brain waves, in the alpha wave range, where quiet thought and deep relaxation occurs. This correspondence of the resonance of the earth with the human brain at its optimal levels, is thought by many not to be a coincidence, but a sign that all life learned to adapt and revolve around this frequency and its harmonics.

It was also discovered in the 1970s by scientists seeking to use the earth’s atmosphere for long distance communication that radiation from our power lines was already altering the behavior of these protective belts, the value of the Schumann resonances and even our weather. The further dramatic changes that we are on the verge of, with such a large mesh network actually within the magnetosphere, emitting microwave rays in constant communication with each other and with points on the earth, has the potential to create even further havoc. Even the first launch of 28 military satellites in 1968 Firstenberg believes was a major factor in the world wide Hong Kong Flu pandemic. This is just one of a long list of examples that Arthur Firstenberg uses in his very compelling argument of the need to safeguard our heavens and our electromagnetic environment.

It remains an essential unexamined question that the activation of 400 new satellites might be an element that contributed to the spike in illness that occurred in March and April of 2020. Along with the massive increase in terrestrial towers, this change in our electrical environment might have affected us in a multiplicity of ways, as previously outlined, by interfering with our processes of oxygen metabolism, or by causing an increase in the virulence of a pathogen, and/or a decrease in the functioning of our immune system. And as more of the 100,000 satellites get activated, and our world gets more and more ‘smart,’ we can expect a corresponding degeneration of human health, which will, if history is our guide, continue to be tied solely to infectious disease.

Instead of focusing on one pieced together string of viral RNA, could it be that the illness is a multifactorial event? That the slow stifling Arthur Firstenberg described beginning with the Industrial Revolution and the electrification of the planet has become much more acute. A 2019 article published in the journal Medical Hypotheses posits just that. Citing the ‘accelerating increases in neurological deaths in the Western world,” it speculates that the increase of background electromagnetic fields over the past twenty five years has become the tipping point—“impacting upon any genetic predisposition” and “increasing multiple-interactive pollutants.” There has been an explosive development” of a wide range of chemicals in humanity’s “relentless pursuit of mastering our environment.”

“Many environmentally linked diseases often need 20 or more years to develop, so as the digital world is still a relatively new phenomenon, the possible twenty years needed for pathological effects problems of raised EMF is perhaps beginning to emerge?”

On a hopeful note, the words of Dr. Mahendran Ponnuturai ring so clearly amidst all of these speculations. He says he has come to discover that all illness boils down to two things: toxin overload and lack of oxygen. If we start thinking along these lines will it preclude the need for experimental, liability-waived vaccines, medical passports, 24/7 digital tracking, and the accelerated adoption of all things wireless, and that means smart cities and smart living, despite 1000s of studies proving biological harm from pulse-modulated electromagnetic radiation (link EMF portal)? Will it prove that all these wireless gadgets and the fantasy George Jetson way of life is not so smart after all? And it is just that, a lovely fantasy?

There are alternatives. The researchers above write, in conclusion:

“We do not wish to ‘stop the modern world’, only make it safer.”
