Our kids can't escape advertising - What should be done?

The team Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Our children are being exposed to an average of 46 ads for unhealthy products every day (27 junk food, 12 alcohol, and seven gambling).

These things are the leading causes of cancer, obesity, diabetes, mental illness and many social harms.

Should our Government be doing more to protect our children from this advertising? What should be done?

Sign Our Petition To Stop The Roll Out Of 5G in Whangarei

Jim from Central Whangarei

Wireless industry representatives admit they have done no health & safety studies on fifth generation wireless technology (5G) & globally, insurance groups are refusing to insure health claims made against 5G technologies. Lloyds of London has put it in the same category as asbestos.
Dr Robin Kelly, a GP based on Auckland’s North Shore said this of 5G: “From the expanding peer-reviewed literature, it is clear to me that living tissue can be affected adversely by these frequencies. The roll out of 5G should be postponed until high quality independent health safety testing is carried out. All governments should act now, as public safety must be their priority.”

Dr Heather Guy, a GP based in Kamo, Whangarei wrote: "As a GP I see the effects of EMF sensitivity in my patients. And as a mother I am very concerned about the biological effects of 5G. Already there is plausible evidence for significant harm from existing technologies and to use untested 5G technology is frightening."
We, the Whangarei community, have an active petition addressed to the Mayor & Councillors of the Whangarei District Council online at: www.change.org...
to urge local government to ban 5G technology.

Sign it & join STOP 5G WHANGAREI on Facebook.
Independent media report that moratoriums on 5G deployment are being achieved by citizens who are lobbying politicians at local & central government level. There is a faster, far safer alternative & the momentum for SafeG tech is building, - investing in fiber-optic cabling.
