Ken Foster and Quirino Balzano have just published a letter in which they respond to unfounded claims on 5G, made by Martin L. Pall.
On May 26th, 2021, Martin L. Pall has published review article: ‘Millimeter (MM) wave and microwave frequency radiation produce deeply penetrating effects: the biology and the physics’
This is part 3/3 of the critical comments on Pall’s review.
- In part 2/3 was presented opinion of another very prominent EHS researcher who preferred to remain anonymous.
The letter by Foster & Balzano begins with this sentence [emphasis added]:
- A full analysis of the many factual errors, dubious claims and non sequiturs in this paper would be a big job. We comment on a few specific errors, and defer the longer discussion needed to address his biophysical theories.
At the end of discussion, Foster and Balzano write about the use of TV gossip by Pall as reliable “scientific” reference (I have written about Pall using this gossip story in his lecture). It is how Pall operates. He does scaremongering, he misrepresents science and he uses gossip, and anti-5G activists “buy” it and are duped by Pall – a really shameful conduct for a scientist:
- Pall’s final cite (75) is to a television news report about three suicides in workers in an ambulance service in East Anglia UK (Nov. 2019). “It is possible,” Pall surmises, that “EHS may play a role in the approximate two-week time period between the beginning of service of the 5G ambulance and the first suicide”. A recent search of Lexis/Nexis and Google.com found many media accounts of the suicides, both when they occurred in Nov. 2019 and when a report of the incidents was completed in May 2020 (the report itself is apparently not publicly available). These accounts focused on workplace harassment, and none mentioned concerns about “5G”. In a statement to one of us (KRF), the ambulance service states that it did not investigate 5G in connection with the suicides, and has no plans to do so in the future. (According to news reports at the time, the ambulance service was participating in trials at a test site of 5G communications systems but there is no indication that the three workers were involved.)
