UPDATE: Read also this Compilation of blog posts on incompetence and harm caused by Martin Pall
It is difficult, when surfing internet, to not to stumble on many outlandish ‘fake science‘ opinions disseminated by Martin Pall, Professor Emeritus from the Washington State University. Reading this stuff is like reading propaganda from some ‘guru of a doomsday sect‘.
While proposing scientific hypotheses around the importance of calcium fluxes is what scientists do, Martin Pall goes further, far further, into and beyond the twilight zone…
Because, who in their right mind, and with straight face, can listen and accept and seriously disseminate such musings (this, one of many similar, is a quote from blog that disseminates Pall’s “fake science” https://fourfoldhealing.com/blogs/news/massive-predicted-effects-of-5g):
“…[Martin Pall’s] six worst nightmares is that 5G will produce widespread in most cases universal or near-universal impact of the following types (and each of these needs to be considered in detail, based on the available evidence):
- A rapid and irreversible crash in human reproduction to close to zero, based mainly but not solely on the impacts on male reproduction.
- A rapid (albeit somewhat slower than in 1) crash in our collective brain function produced by massive impacts on human brain structure and function.
- Very early-onset Alzheimer’s dementia also caused by the human brain impact seen in 2.
- Autism and ADHD caused primarily by perinatal 4G/5G exposures
- Massive deterioration in the human gene pool, caused by the DNA effects in human sperm and possibly also on human eggs.
- Widespread sudden cardiac death in all age ranges caused by the EMF impacts on the pacemaker cells in the sino-atrial node of the heart.
According to Pall’s ‘fake science‘ musings, the 5G is already responsible for:
- suicides of ambulance staff in UK
- fires in South Korea
- outbreak of coronavirus in Wuhan
- …and many other “effects”
But when Pall was asked to elaborate and justify some of these claims he could not… and here are quotes from a recent news story:
On suicides of ambulance staff:
“…One of Pall’s claims that elicited audible gasps from the crowd was when he shared that a British ambulance company had started using 5G on one ambulance and, shortly after, three ambulance crew members died by suicide.
But look into the case and you’ll find that the three men who did in fact die over 11 days in November appear to have lived half-an-hour to an hour-and-a-half away from each other. What’s more, the 5G “connected ambulance” being tested in the region is still in the works, with only a series of demonstrations so far showing that ultrasounds could be done remotely in the field. While Pall couched his comments by saying he couldn’t say for sure if 5G was to blame for the deaths (leaving out any mention of previous mental health issues or the men’s apparently toxic work environment), he said he believed it “could” have contributed…”
On fires in South Korea:
“…Pall also claimed that 5G services that were turned on about two days before the South Korean Goseong Fire of 2019 somehow contributed to its severity. The cause of that fire is still unknown but appears to have been a high-voltage power line that fell due to wind. (Wildfires are also getting worse globally due to climate change and forest management practices….”
So, be ready, years 2023-2025 are fast approaching (sarcasm).
While the validity of the VGCC and calcium-fluxes hypothesis proposed by Pall can be debated scientifically, it is clear that the rest of Pall’s claims is a haphazard collection of “effects”, happening right now around the world, coincidentally at the time when the 5G deployment just begun.
Martin Pall is missing one, very important quality that is of paramount importance for a real scientist.
Martin Pall does not understand that correlation does not automatically mean causation.
Martin Pall does not understand that molecular signals in cells can cause large variety of effects but not all of them are happening at the same time. Thus generation of e.g. free radicals does not automatically mean that every effect they might cause will happen simultaneously. Claim of free radical causing particular effect at the particular time needs experimental proof – not guilty until proven guilty.
Martin Pall should remember that not everything that is happening now is caused, or even remotely linked, with 5G, no matter how ‘flashy‘ it would look in a lecture slide.
