American concerns, opposition, legislation, litigation, and warnings regarding the installment of 5G technology increase every day (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7). This being the case it’s not surprising that telecom companies don’t want to provide as many details to the public or the feds anymore about where they are installing it. Telecom companies have also provided NO scientific evidence that 5G is safe. Many doctors and scientists say it isn’t (see 1, 2, 3, 4). Illness has been reported where it’s already been installed (see 1, 2, 3).
American Academy of Pediatrics and other health experts warn that children are more susceptible to harm caused by exposure to all sources of wireless radiation. In fact, no “safe” level of wireless radiation exposure has been determined for kids or pregnant women.
Some Carmel, IN residents are so concerned about 5G that they urged their city council to take action – and they did.
The Carmel City Council approved a resolution Monday asking state lawmakers, the Federal Communications Commission and Congress to limit 5G technology deployment in Indiana until the health effects are fully understood.
[…]Over the past two city council meetings, several residents have addressed the council, asking it to take action to halt 5G deployment. Many said they’re worried about the long-term health impacts it will have on their children. The city’s cable and telecommunications commission also urged city councilors to take some sort of action.
Research on the health effects of the equipment has been somewhat inconsistent. The World Health Organization and International Agency for Research on Cancer have classified all radio frequencies, including those used in cellular networks, as possibly carcinogenic to humans. Additionally, a decade-long study by the National Toxicology Program found that exposure to radio frequency radiation used by 2G and 3G technologies is associated with “clear evidence” of cancerous tumors in male rats.
Councilor Tony Green, who sponsored the resolution, said the city doesn’t want to halt innovation or limit connectivity.
“Just after hearing some of the concerns, (we) wanted to make some sort of statement that those concerns need to be looked into,” he said.
The state and FCC have passed laws and regulations that limit local governments’ abilities to hamper the deployment of 5G in an effort to ensure the technology is accessible.
[…]“We are asking to limit 5G technology until—this is a very broad statement—’scientific evidence conclusively establishes that this technology poses no health risk to humans,’” she said.
Kudos to Carmel, IN residents and council members for taking a step in the right direction.
