US Navy's electronic warfare training to put humans and animals at risk of harm


EMF radiation

(NaturalNews) The American military is planning to conduct intense electromagnetic warfare training exercises in a primitive forest area of Washington state this fall despite a lack of proper evidence showing that such exercises are safe. According to Truthout, the U.S. Navy will fly 36 jets at 1,200 feet above the Olympic National Forest, potentially for 16 hours a day and for 260 days, putting animal and human populations at serious risk.

Part of the plan involves erecting 15 mobile ground units within the park that will blast electromagnetic radiation (EMR) signals to supersonic Growler warplanes, a war games exercise that the Navy initially tried to hide from the public. Now that the cat's out of the bag, the Navy is claiming that the exercises are not a threat, though the military arm has provided absolutely no evidence to back this claim.

Even so, Dean Millett, the district ranger for the Pacific district of the Olympic National Forest, has issued a draft notice agreeing with the Navy's unsubstantiated claim of "no significant impact" to people or animals. This decision has cleared the way for the exercises to proceed, even though previous military and other scientific documents show that electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) can cause cellular DNA damage, leading to cancer and infertility.

"We know the claims that you only have to worry about heating effects are false," stated Dr. Martin Pall, a professor emeritus of biochemistry and medical sciences at Washington State University, to Truthout about the Navy's claims that its EMF exercises are safe because they won't emit thermal/heating effects. "All the assurances of safety are based on that assumption. So this whole thing is of great concern."

US Navy deliberately ignoring science showing EMF dangers, lying to public

Pall's understanding of EMF radiation is extensive. He published his own paper citing 24 separate studies showing that EMFs are not only dangerous but distinctly misrepresented by the official safety standards for their use. The idea that the only thing people have to worry about is the heating aspect of EMFs is inherently false, he says.

Reams of published science reveal that EMFs are harmful even at non-thermal levels, and that their biological effects are highly concerning. In fact, regular exposure to EMFs even from common consumer products like wireless routers and mobile phones is damaging to humans, leading to conditions like leukemia and infertility.

"This has been going on for years, and people have been assured of safety based on these things and it is absolute nonsense," said Pall. "So we have a situation now where most people in the world are exposed to microwave frequency radiation based on scientific studies that have no scientific merit."

What this means regarding the Navy's planned experiments is that both animals and humans living nearby will face health threats from an arm of the government that is supposed to protect them. The Navy's own published science contradicts what it's claiming about the training exercises, and those entrusted with rooting this out are instead concealing it.

"What the Navy is doing we have no idea because they don't tell us... but from what little they have told us, they are using a lot of pulse fields in wavelengths that are damaging to us, to biological organisms," added Pall. "They give us not one iota of evidence of what biological effects are produced by those fields, and don't even tell us what fields they are using. You only find empty statements of 'don't worry about these things.'"
