Regulators Spurn $25 Million US Government Study
Critics on Capitol Hill calling 5G Rollout “Boon to industry, but devastation to public health“
Breaking July 11th, 2016: In the wake of the $25 million National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences/National Toxicology Program (NIEHS/NTP) study, which found DNA damage and carcinogenic effects caused by wireless radiation, FCC Chair, Tom Wheeler, is fast tracking the 5G Spectrum rollout with a vote scheduled for July 14th.
The 5G network would carry far more data and use higher frequencies than ever used before. Wheeler recommends these new frequencies not be studied or tested for public safety, so the US may be “first out the gate”. Virtually every home or lamppost would be outfitted with a small cell tower. According to Wheeler’s June 20 remarks at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., “5G build out is going to be very infrastructure intensive, requiring a massive deployment of small cells.”
Despite industry assurance of safety, many thousands of independent, peer-reviewed studies have proven that wireless radiation is harmful. Last year, 220 scientists submitted an International Appeal to the United Nations calling for greater public protection from exposure to wireless radiation.
According to multiple surveys, at least 10% of the population has already developed electro-sensitivity. “We are currently in the midst of an epidemic,” says Dafne Tachover, CEO of “We Are The Evidence”, an advocacy group representing people who have been injured by wireless radiation.
In a Supreme Court Case in Israel, led by Tachover, evidence was presented of over 200 children who developed Electro-Sensitivity as a result of Wi-Fi in schools. These children, along with the ever-growing number of people who suffer from adverse bio-effects caused by radiation, may find their lives yet more disrupted if the FCC approves 5G.
Representatives from various EMF awareness organizations have come to Washington DC this week in an effort to educate public officials about the wealth of science showing harm from wireless radiation, and to convey the views of a growing number of people who would choose health over an “Internet of Everything.”
