What’s wrong with 5G and telecom hype?

Notes from Dr. Devra Davis and Americans For Responsible Technology during a zoom meeting 4/15/20 on 5G. (some slides from presentation below)

First, the telecom companies have been charging you different fees on your phone/telecom bill for years with the reasoning that they will use these funds to expand fiberoptic systems to reach more remote areas. Because of this they have amassed funds from customers that have not been used because they haven’t done this expansion. Now they are going to use the funds to expand 5G without your consent and using the funds that you paid into for a completely different purpose. Throughout the world telecom companies have disclaimers and warnings on wireless devices (see chart below) and have restricted frequency levels that have proven to cause harm. Even warnings from telecom companies to their shareholders have indicate that they cannot be insured for suits brought from people being harmed by these frequencies. Several telecom company executives in other countries have resigned rather than be personally liable in such a lawsuit. Do the insurers know the risks that we are not privy to?

So what’s wrong with 5G besides the fact that the infrastructure will have to be overwhelming because these frequencies are short range and therefore require hundreds or thousands or units on poles and structures vs. one cell tower?  These units will also require higher usage of electricity putting our grid system in overload. The 5G hazard is just an upgrade from the hazards we are already receiving from 3G and 4G through our cell phones, WiFi, smart meters and smart houses. The 5G frequencies were actually developed years ago as a weapon to induce pain, although if used sparingly it can actually treat chronic pain. Did you know the airports scanners are a form of 5G and are used to detect explosives?

The big hazard to the body is that the frequencies from 5G are absorbed through our skin and eyes and detrimentally effect our cells. Our sweat glands resonate with these frequencies creating dis-ease in the body. 5G affects cell growth repair so if the person is older or has some sort of immune-compromised illness they will likely be more affected*. The frequencies also disrupt the body’s ability to maintain antioxidant and glutathione levels when they are within 80 meters of the 5G unit, and also alter cell membranes, changes gene expressions and alter our cell death cycle and bacteria growth.

Japan, the USA and Canada have the highest allowable levels of RF exposure in the world. What do the other countries know that we aren’t being told? According to the Environmental Health Trust publication 5G uses frequencies from low to high band currently sub 6GHz. These have proven to cause cancer, but other risks to our health can include DNA , brain/memory, and sperm/reproductive damage, not to mention the extreme environmental risks to insects and trees.  5G is poised to be the undoing of personal freedoms, human biological sustenance, and the health of the planet. With 5G being launched agressively without need for local zoning approval during the pandemic, we all need to take our heads out of the sand and take a stand against this Orwellian technology.

MA Smart Meter Hearling Update Sept. 2019

Smart Meter Hearing Update

Thanks so much to those who sent in testimony for the three Massachusetts utility smart meter bills!

(If you haven’t had a chance, there’s still time and every voice counts — here’s the template to make it easy.)

Yesterday nine constituents testified before the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy. We hope to have video to share soon.

Some highlights:

  • The legislators heard personal experiences, the science, and what other states and countries are already doing to protect their citizens.
  • They also heard details on National Grid’s fraudulent smart grid pilot program in Worcester, MA.
  • Senate Chair Michael Barrett stopped to ask good questions about the science.
  • We laid out solutions and handed both the House and Senate Chairs the roadmap to safe, sustainable technology: the policy book Reinventing Wires: The Future of Landlines and Networks.
  • Industry representatives were in the hearing chamber so we got to educate them too; they chose not to testify.

We are so grateful for the tireless work of our world scientists, health care professionals, educators, advocates — and a growing number of public servants tuning into the wireless radiation issue. We know it is on your shoulders we stand as we work together to move the needle toward safe technology.

The public policy process in Massachusetts is a long one — this session goes until December 2020 but perhaps our legislators will move more swiftly now that New Hampshire and Oregon have passed wireless radiation bills into law.

The Next Bills: October 7

We just found out the Massachusetts Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure has scheduled two more of our bills for public hearing:

Monday, October 7, 1-4 p.m.
Massachusetts State House, Gardner Auditorium

Senator Julian Cyr’s S. 129 and S. 130 seek, respectively, to:

  • Form a special commission to research the impact of electromagnetic (EMR) and radiofrequency (RFR) radiation on consumer protection, public health, and technology
  • Emulate the Berkeley, CA ordinance to notify the public of the fine print radiation warnings

I’ll create a template soon and ask for testimonies to be sent in again. If folks can make arrangements to testify in person too, these are perhaps our two strongest bills this session.

Smart Meters Banned in NM cities

Today we won a victory in the fight against radiation in New Mexico. The Public Regulation Commission has denied PNM’s application for Smart Meters. “The plan presented in the Application does not provide a net public benefit and it does not promote the public interest,” wrote the Commission.

The Commission accepted the Hearing Examiner’s recommended decision without alteration. It ruled that:

• PNM did not demonstrate that smart meters will save money.
• PNM did not demonstrate that smart meters will produce energy efficiency.
• PNM did not show that customers want smart meters.
• PNM did not evaluate alternatives.
• PNM did not say how it would protect customer data privacy.
• Cybersecurity issues need to be addressed.
• 125 good, high-paying jobs would be lost.
• Proposed opt-out fees were unreasonable.
• There was insufficient public input.
• There was insufficient response by PNM to public objections.

EVIDENCE ABOUT HEALTH EFFECTS was discussed at length. “Customers who have strong feelings about the
health effects of the meters should be allowed to protect their stated health concerns without a
prohibitively high cost.”

The decision goes on to state: “The conditions of the portion of the population who believe they are
electromagnetically sensitive deserve acknowledgment and consideration as decisions are made
regarding the implementation of an AMI Project. Accommodations could include reasonable
opt-out provisions and fees and perhaps the selection of technologies that minimize the impacts
on such people. Such accommodations may be desirable to minimize health risks to customers
and address the needs and preferences of PNM’s customers. These are issues that can and should
be addressed in a public input process of the sort PNM stated in its 2012 Report that it would
conduct before bringing a smart meter proposal to the Commission for approval.”

The decision means there will not be smart meters in the near future in New Mexico’s metropolitan areas: Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Las Vegas, Clayton, Ruidoso, Tularosa, Alamogordo, Silver City, Lordsburg and Deming.
