Crony Deal Between Telecom Giants and Feds to Radiate Your Home

November 1, 2018

State and local government shut out. Health risks ignored. Action Alert!

Telecom companies are preparing to unleash the next wave of wireless technology in neighborhoods across the nation, deployed block by block. The telecoms industry, with an assist by the federal government, is barring the ability of local governments to manage how the new technologies get installed. We must speak out to prevent telecom giants and their government cronies from taking away our rights and threatening our health.

Telecom companies are installing the infrastructure needed for “5G” networks, which are up to 1,000 times faster than the current 4G networks. Setting up 5G networks requires “small cells” to be placed on streetlights and utility poles throughout neighborhoods and cities. These “small cells” include antennas, power supplies, electric meters, switches, bundles of cables, and boxes—all strapped to the poles. Some have refrigerator-sized containers on the ground. These cells are supposed to be placed every 500 feet along residential streets and through commercial districts.

Homeowners worry that the small cells are unattractive and will affect property values. Even more disturbing are the health concerns. Small cells emit microwave radiation and essentially function as cell towers. Placing these units every 500 feet means that communities will be bathed in radiation. We’ve written before about the health implications of over-exposure to microwaves. Microwave radiation can negatively affect mitochondrial function, cause cell damage and DNA breaks, accelerates aging, and puts us at a higher risk for chronic disease. A recent study from the National Toxicology Program showed rats exposed to cell phone radiation at the federally allowable level had an increased risk for brain and heart tumors. Animal studies have demonstrated the health dangers of the radio frequencies used by 5G, including: arrhythmias in frogs, immune system effects in healthy mice, lens opacity (linked with cataracts) in rats, and more.

Traditional cell towers are bad enough—which, by the way, the federal government has prevented the public from opposing based on environmental or health concerns. Now telecom companies want to put a small cell tower right in your front yard, and your neighbor’s yard, and all over the town or city. It will be impossible to escape exposure to the radiation emitted by small cells. Any health concerns there are now about exposure to microwave radiation will only intensify with 5G.

It’s no surprise, then, that many communities are fighting back, but the telecom giants and the feds continue to threaten local autonomy.

Telecom companies are working with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to steamroll local governments into kowtowing to whatever industry says it needs. The FCC recently approved rules that limit the fees local governments can charge telecom companies for use of public utilities and property. Other rules already on the books have “streamlined” small cell deployment by reducing the time cities and counties have to review applications. The agency is studying how they could limit cities’ requirements on the look and design of small cells. Ajit Pai, the FCC commissioner and a former attorney for Verizon, also created a committee (mostly of wireless industry representatives) to develop model codes that cities can adopt to speed the approval of small cells and reduce costs to industry.

It will be an even harder uphill battle if local governments want to reject 5G tech altogether. Municipalities in many states are preempted by state laws that limit local regulation of wireless facilities. More often, though, people simply are not aware of the dangers of widespread exposure to microwave radiation, and see the advent of 5G networks as a good thing.

Congress is also getting in on the action—on the side of telecom firms. A number of bills in the House and Senate would make it easier and less costly for small cells to be installed on federal land, exempting the technology from environmental reviews. The sponsors of these bills are among the top lawmakers who have received the most money from the likes of AT&T and Verizon.

This is unacceptable. Special interests are using the power of the federal government to ignore local laws and endanger our health. We must not let them get away with it.

Action Alert! Write to Congress and the FCC, telling them to stop throttling the ability of local governments to control whether and how 5G networks fit into their communities and that the federal government should study the health effects of 5G networks. Please send your message immediately.

    Yes, soft kill. Atlanta, Ga has been infiltrated by the Rotchild and Rockefeller foundation for those resilient cities.

      The American Cancer Society is a tool, a propaganda machine for the fraudulent cancer business. But as far as credibility, they are right there with the FDA & USDA.

      There are thousands of studies available regarding the harmful effects of ELF.

      Today the incidence of cancer is 1/3 people. In the 60’s it was 1/16 people.

      These multinational companies contribute to destroy people’s health and our environment with the help of their partners in DC.

    As a retired Communications Engineer I have studied these issues for more than 32 years. First, the idea that radio frequency energy, at the levels used by cell towers, can harm our health has not been proven. In nearly every study there is no clear evidence either way. Second, It has been my experience that people don’t want the infrastructure that makes our cell phones, internet, television and emergency radio equipment possible located where they can see it. We’ve had to make communications towers look like trees or flag poles in order to get permission to install the infrastructure so these people can enjoy their technology.
    The real fear for me is the ability 5G will extend to entities who like to spy on us. The amount of information that can be pushed along 5G networks is more than enough to wet the appetite of large corporations or government.

      You’ve missed more than 20,000 peer-reviewed published studies that provide evidence of a wide range of negative effects of non-ionizing EMR at non-thermal exposure levels. You’ve probably heard the adage, “Never expect a person to understand issues when his job depends on his not understanding them.” That would fit you. Furthermore, unless you search for this information deliberately, you won’t see it. The news media fail to report any more than muffled hints at major studies demonstrating negative impacts. Have you even heard that radiofrequency radiation is a Class 2B carcinogen, and there are scientists who think it should be Class 1? A few of my friends heard once years back about it being 2B, and then never heard about it again. They scoff at me, but you can check this. An industry insider was outed at the IARC, and the evidence could finally be examined and judged. I recommend the Bioinitiative Report for more information on the biological effects of EMR. There are literally millions of people worldwide suffering from debilitating effects from the current levels of exposures. I hear of people getting metal implants (tooth or other structural) and suddenly unable to tolerate current levels. But their plight hardly ever reaches the public.

        It is my experience that those who go looking for trouble will find it, whether real or imagined!

        A direct quote from the American Cancer Society:

        “Do cellular phone towers cause cancer?
        Some people have expressed concern that living, working, or going to school near a cell phone tower might increase the risk of cancer or other health problems. At this time, there is very little evidence to support this idea. In theory, there are some important points that would argue against cellular phone towers being able to cause cancer.

        First, the energy level of radiofrequency (RF) waves is relatively low, especially when compared with the types of radiation that are known to increase cancer risk, such as gamma rays, x-rays, and ultraviolet (UV) light. The energy of RF waves given off by cell phone towers is not enough to break chemical bonds in DNA molecules, which is how these stronger forms of radiation may lead to cancer.

        A second issue has to do with wavelength. RF waves have long wavelengths, which can only be concentrated to about an inch or two in size. This makes it unlikely that the energy from RF waves could be concentrated enough to affect individual cells in the body.

        Third, even if RF waves were somehow able to affect cells in the body at higher doses, the level of RF waves present at ground level is very low – well below the recommended limits. Levels of energy from RF waves near cell phone towers are not significantly different from the background levels of RF radiation in urban areas from other sources, such as radio and television broadcast stations.”

        Pat Ormsby, excellent response. I might add that the studies showing no threat to human or animal health were funded by, you guessed it, the telecomm industry! No conflict of interest there, hmmm?

    • Paul Michael says:

      YES it has been proven. nnemf is very harmful to us. https://www.emfacts.com/2018/08/martin-palls-book-on-5g-is-available-online/

      Let me share a small anecdote with this audience. A few months ago, at bedtime, I turned my phone off before going to bed, but left it charging on the wall outlet. The outlet was on the bar at the kitchen. For some reason, we had left a single Russet potato on the counter, and I decided to lean the phone on it while it charged. No reason for it. It just happen to be there and I felt like leaning it on the potato. The next morning, I went to turn the phone on and was horrified when I removed it from the potato. The spot that was touching the phone had been liquefied. Literally liquefied. It looked like a bruise with liquid under the skin. This was while the phone was off. The phone was not even warm to the touch, so I ruled out heat. My only conclusion is that the phone continued to emit EMF while off and that the potato’s cells suffered localized cell damage. I can only imagine what those huge antennas do to us while they transmit data 24 hours per day.

      You’re only drinking the Kool-Aid they allow you. All you need to is look up the old studies. This stuff has been known for 100 years. No, 5G hasn’t been around for 100 years (some might try to “debunk” me for saying 100 years). The entire concept of discovering health effects from EMF has been around for some time. It just get worse as they up the power, frequency, amplitude, etc.

    Deborah Traveras has a link on the web site “Stop the Crime” which fully explains just how deadly the 5G waves are going to be for all life on our planet. I highly recommend listening to her link on the “Stop the Crime” web site.

    5G will devestate humanity. Spread the science of the health risks https://www.emfacts.com/2018/08/martin-palls-book-on-5g-is-available-online/
