'This is very sad and no-one is looking in the right places nor asking the right questions. Nine students from the University of Bristol (UK) committed suicide during the past two years. Bristol University is blaming the students themselves, arguing they suffered ‘mental health problems’. One student was on campus for just 3 weeks and others were third and final years students.
Similarly, York University (UK) also had a suicide cluster of 5 students within a one year period in 2016. Of course, there are many explanations for why student suicides are on the increase and the narrative below is peddled by all the mainstream media outlets(2). “A report by the university in May revealed that half of all ambulances called out to the University of York were for incidents of self-harm or suicide attempts. The proportion of emergency calls of this kind had been growing year on year. The rising costs of higher education and a more difficult labour market post-graduation have both been cited as to blame for the rise in depression.”
What if the university administrators and mainstream media pundits are wrong? What if the cause or causes of these suicides lie elsewhere? If we merely focus on one cause and it’s the wrong cause it means that nothing has changed and even more unfortunate events will unfold in the coming years.
Clearly, there are huge problems in student safety and well-being at some British universities. Statistics from the UK ONS(3) (Office of National Statistics) show that student suicide rates in England and Wales have risen by over 50 per cent since 2007. Thirty years ago I was a student in several UK universities from 1988 – 1995 and I cannot re-call a single suicide incident by anyone (staff included). Something has drastically changed in those intervening years and one issue that has no mention anywhere is internet connectivity, particularly student exposure patterns to pulsed microwave radiation. My interest in these issues piqued when I found out that Bristol University has its own closed 5G network.
Bristol University has world renowned expertise in the prediction and modelling of microwave radiation. It employs researchers and PhD students to carry out its work and has numerous research contracts with the UK government, other research institutes and of course, the telecommunications industries such as Nokia etc. It has a research lab with very expensive antenna test suites and software programme centres.'
