[b]Comcast bringing gigabit Internet to Charleston in biggest rollout of ultra-fast service yet[/b] (March. 2018)

"Philadelphia-based Comcast is launching ultra-fast gigabit Internet service in Charleston next month." (April or May 2018)

IDK if this increases the amount of positively charged ions or not. Most likely it does because the shorter wavelengths would generate more turbulence. (Think of a go cart going hairpin turns to get a mental picture. The sharper the turn the more force there is. Thus, the ions or electrons would sail off at a higher speed.)

To qualify as THE city in the US out of several hundred with the highest flu like temperature readings (which indicate a microbial infection of some sort) is worth looking at to discover why it is happening.

Or you could ask me.  chuckle.gif  rim shot tinfoil.gif Tinfoil: it's the new black!

"Charleston is the country’s sickest city, according to Kinsa. Nearly 42,000 residents have reported flu-like symptoms....That is according to weekly rankings from Kinsa, the manufacturer of smart thermometers that monitors the spreading of flu-like illness in real time."

Reported November 30 2018: "Three percent of all Americans are currently sick, according to Kinsa. That averages to about 9.8 million people — a 54 percent increase from 2017. https://www.thedailytimes.com/news/tenne...aa8e3.html

Last year saw a 40 year record smashed for flu deaths. Does a 54% increase in fevers thus far give us an early warning for what is coming?   shocked.gif

Is this a "sponsored" article?

Quote:Tennessee is one of the sickest states in the country, with 3.6 percent of the population experiencing flu-like symptoms, according to Kinsa, a public health company with a line of smart thermometers that use an app.

Kinsa’s data, as of Friday, shows Blount County has around 3.8 percent of the population reporting flu-like illnesses — a 30.7 percent increase over illness indicated this time last year.

But flu-like symptoms do not mean the flu virus is the cause. So far, Blount County has not experienced a surge in flu illnesses.

How long have they been collecting data this way? You do realize data is going to change depending on how they collect it.

AFAIK it's not a sponsored article, at least not what I posted.

An over abundance of positively charged ions from electronics will promote any kind of virus or bacteria. We have focused on the flu, but they are all part of the picture.

Point is, this is not scientific information. When was this app launched? How many years have they collected information? If the answer is 2 - 4 years the percentages of increase doesn't mean much. Any calibration of measuring instruments or methods will cause a change in results.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Science by its nature happens to be one of the last sources for valid information because it takes a long time to carry out and publish peer review science. Often science decides to study something based on the anecdotal as it's first step.

It's worthwhile to take note of the anecdotal. In this case there are also 8,000 studies that reveal detrimental effects of 5G, WiFi, microwave ovens and Smart 'Beaters.' Thus it is not so surprising when the CDC announces a 40-year record for flu related deaths this past season,, topping the previous high by 25%.

IOW, there is scientific evidence already. It has been largely ignored. The same thing happened with research on nitric oxide (NO.) NO was selected by Science magazine as the Molecule of the Year. Three researchers were granted the Nobel Prize with their discovery that NO relaxes blood vessels. More than 10,000 peer review articles were published on it as early as 1998, including the use of the amino acids arginine and citrulline for their abilities to lower blood pressure due to their effect on NO.

the number of studies could be over 30,000 now.

Yet you'll barely find ANY doctors who prescribe either arginine or citrulline for patients with high blood pressure.

Our choices can be to wait on research to protect us or to look for earlier warnings. We do this already. There are no studies that warn of the dangers of resting your hand on a hot stove, for example.

Sometimes science discovers new stuff. Most often they confirm what some already knew. In another example, there are many recorded instances of how citrus, pine needles, and other botanicals reversed scurvy long before Dr. James Lind published his work in 1753. It's interesting to note that the proof was based on just two patients who ate citrus for six days. Ten others ate or drank other stuff and saw no relief. It took about 50 years for the British Navy to fully accept his finding.

Let me close by saying that I'm not the first person to sound the alarm about electronics. Far from it. The basis of a lot of my knowledge came from my first day in high school chemistry, namely that opposites attract while similarly charged ions repel. From that it wasn't too difficult to note that if there is an over abundance of one type of charge or another, it will affect our biology and the biology of all living things.

We absorb ions through our skin, eyes and mouth. It's sensible to believe that the properties of those ions can mess up our functionality if there are too many of one or the other. Today, there are too many positive ions in the air and in us. 5G will further tilt the scale and do so at an accelerated rate. The specific areas where it is turned on will suffer the most and in catastrophic ways with great rapidity. Since we are already probably near the breaking point, 5G's final straw is likely to cause the collapse of civilizations.

I'm sorry, but I don't think it's sensible to believe that.

Fair enough. I truly appreciate your clarity. You speak for millions or billions of people who likely feel much the same way if they are aware of the issue.

When the air is measured for positive and negative ions in enclosed areas, there are usually more positive than negative ions present. The over abundance is due to the constant and/or pulsing electronics in those environments.

Combine that data with the thousands of studies that reveal to us that the excess does cause a wide variety of pathologies in lab animals and they impair plant growth. In animals there is a negative effect on hormones, such as excessive adrenaline production (a doubling in six weeks!) to DNA damage. ATP activity (our primary energy source) is dramatically reduced. The cilia are also greatly sowed or turned off.

If slowed and stopped cilia were the only downside, it would be catastrophic. For example, in gestation cilia pathologies result in horrific physiologic ans anatomical changes. Beards on girls and the heart located on the wrong side of the body, which has serious health consequences, are just two.

Slowed cilia in the rest of us produces indigestion, bronchial congestion which leads to COPD, sinus trouble, glaucoma and impaired spinal fluid movement that produces bacterial infections in the spine. Recent research indicates that scoliosis of the spine is produced by a bacterial infection.

Again those are just some of the cilia effects. Damaged DNA isn't so great either.

So the more positively charged ions we absorb does affect our society as a whole, especially since in the US, at least, the collective health of Americans is already mediocre at best with 50% of adults taking prescription drugs (often multiple prescription drugs) and 30% of teens also taking one or more long term. Drugs are not indicated unless there is a problem one is trying to avoid. So by definition half of American adults  do not have good health. Many have truly mediocre health.

When a person is already compromised in some way, it often doesn't take much more to cripple them further or even kill them. If you were to come to America and spent a half-hour people-watching, you'd see the evidence loud and clear: the shoppers are often really fat, grey, tired, and 'zipless.' They are already wounded which means it won't take much more to turn them into invalids.

Folks around here wear parkas when the temperature gets down to 55 degrees. I've been here 19 years yet barely wear a thin windbreaker when it is 35 so it's not acclimatizing - they are sick due to low ATP. I also barely eat and have dropped 70 pounds while increasing my ability to withstand the cold and heat. In the last three days, I've eaten two meals, for example - bowls of cereal!

How did an entire society lose their ability to handle temperature changes?

It might be due to "forgetting" or rather losing the skill to dress appropriately

If that's really the case then you're the anomaly or your windbreaker is NASA grade damned.gif

chuckle.gif Haha!! You've been peeking, haven't you? Just yesterday, I was headed to the post office to deliver a few orders. Got to the car before I realized the packages were still inside. The name below average genius wasn't just a joke...it's a fair description.  tinfoil.gif

As a state SC continues to lead the nation in fevers according to Kinsa's data:

Kinsa reported 4.3 percent of South Carolina’s population are experiencing flu-like symptoms. To put that number into perspective, that’s nearly 176,000 people. This represents an 89 percent increase over this time last year."

Getting snowed in probably won't help them shed the title next week either. Staying indoors is associated with a higher flu risk.
