 pigsKiller Virus Takes Emotional Toll on Pig Farmers

Last Christmas was one farmer Greg Lear would rather forget. “Yeah, some merry Christmas,” he said of the December 19th 2013 call from his farm manager with news that all the sows, or breeding females, were throwing up and many had diarrhea. The sows survived, but within 96 hours “we probably had 500 little pigs that were dead,” said Lear. As fate would have it, the Spencer, Iowa, farm he helps run was next in line to be hit by a virus that’s killed several million piglets across the country in the last 12 months. Rising pork prices have more than offset the financial damage, but the unknowns about the disease have farmers fretting that the worst is yet to come.

Cell company turns on new 4G service across Iowa

Algona, Atlantic, Charles City, Clinton, Creston, Emmetsburg, Estherville, Fairfield, Newton, Spencer, Spirit Lake, Storm Lake and Washington customers will have access to the new faster service. …… the speeds are up to 10 times faster than 3G, similar to the speed of a cable Internet connection. To access the faster network, customers must have a 4G smartphone, tablet or hotspot. The company said it plans to continue expanding the service to another 3,800 cities by the end of the year.

Series of Antennae

In order to make the latest handsets capable of receiving the full bandwidth power of 4G networks, smartphone manufacturers are equipping them with a series of antennae in one handset. According to health experts, his further intensifies the risks of being exposed to more radiation; hence increasing the possibility of carcinogenic and other attacks.

Porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED), a serious and highly contagious swine disease, is characterized by severe diarrhea and dehydration in suckling piglets. The etiologic agent, porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV), is an enveloped, single-stranded RNA virus (family Coronaviridae, order Nidovirales). The viral disease was discovered in the United Kingdom in 1971 and subsequently reported in many swine-producing countries in Europe and Asia (1,2). Although most sow herds previously had received CV777-based inactivated vaccine, a large-scale outbreak of PED has been associated with high rates of illness and death in suckling piglets in China since late 2010, resulting in substantial economic losses.

Increase in local electromagnetic radiation in China since late 2010

Maybe having live streaming YouTube video bandwidth to everybody’s phones wasn’t such a good idea? How much electromagnetic energy can we pulse through everybody and into the environment? Oh well, denial runs deep, very deep
