Mill Valley CA blocks 5G

Bay Area city blocks 5G deployments over cancer concerns

The Bay Area may be the center of the global technology industry, but that hasn’t stopped one wealthy enclave from protecting itself from the future.

The city council of Mill Valley, a small town located just a few miles north of San Francisco, voted unanimously late last week to effectively block deployments of small-cell 5G wireless towers in the city’s residential areas.

Through an urgency ordinance, which allows the city council to immediately enact regulations that affect the health and safety of the community, the restrictions and prohibitions will be put into force immediately for all future applications to site 5G telecommunications equipment in the city. Applications for commercial districts are permitted under the passed ordinance.

The ordinance was driven by community concerns over the health effects of 5G wireless antennas. According to the city, it received 145 pieces of correspondence from citizens voicing opposition to the technology, compared to just five letters in support of it — a ratio of 29 to 1. While that may not sound like much, the city’s population is roughly 14,000, indicating that about 1% of the population had voiced an opinion on the matter.

Blocks on 5G deployments are nothing new for Marin County, where other cities including San Anselmo and Ross have passed similar ordinances designed to thwart 5G expansion efforts over health concerns.

These restrictions on small cell site deployments could complicate 5G’s upcoming nationwide rollout. While 5G standards have yet to be standardized, one model that has broad traction in the telecommunications industry is to use so-called “small cell” antennas to increase bandwidth and connection quality while reducing infrastructure and power costs. Smaller antennas are easier to install and will be loss obtrusive, reducing the concerns of urban preservationists to unsightly tower masts that have long plagued the deployment of 4G antennas in communities across the United States.

Perhaps most importantly, these small cells emit less radiation, since they are not designed to provide as wide of coverage as traditional cell sites. The telecom industry has long vociferously denied a link between antennas and health outcomes, although California’s Department of Public Health has issued warnings about potential health effects of personal cell phone antennas. Reduced radiation emissions from 5G antennas compared to 4G antennas would presumably further reduce any health effects of this technology.

Restrictions like Mill Valley’s will make it nearly impossible to deploy 5G in a timely manner. As one industry representative told me in an interview a few months ago, “It takes 18 months to get the permit to deploy, and 2 hours to install.” Multiplied by the hundreds of sites required to cover a reasonably-sized urban neighborhood, and the 5G rollout goes beyond daunting to well-near impossible.

While health concerns have bubbled in various municipalities, those concerns are not shared globally. China, through companies like Huawei, is investing billions of dollars to design and build 5G infrastructure, in hopes of stealing the industry crown from the United States, which is the market leader in 4G technologies.

Those competitive concerns have increasingly been a priority at the FCC, where chairman Ajit Pai  and his fellow Republican commissioners have pushed hard to overcome local concerns around health and historical preservation. The commission voted earlier this year on new siting rules that would accelerate 5G adoption.

Mill Valley’s ordinance is designed to frustrate those efforts, while remaining within the letter of federal law, which preempts local ordinances. Mill Valley’s mayor has said that the city will look to create a final ordinance over the next year.

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.

*could frequency clusters (like in hospitals) see more virus deaths due to lowered immunity?

Connectivity is the next tobacco or asbestos.

If you think 5G, wifi and cell phones are a great technological boon to society… think how great cigarettes were when they first came out and how everyone thought it was so cool to smoke…. took years before they killed off smokers and litigation prevailed to save the rest of us. Watch what the UN is proposing to investigate….  this is scary, but the population is so brainwashed and addicted to connectivity it may come too late for those who have been continually exposed and will find their body’s will react with disease as they age.

German review on dangers of WiFi

From: The English translation of the review “Biological and pathological effects of 2.45 GHz radiation on cells, fertility, brain, and behavior” by Isabel Wilke, published as a supplement in the German journal ‘umwelt-medizin-gesellschaft 1/2018’. It is the largest systematic review on WiFi up to now. It documents more than 100 studies confirming harmful effects of the 2.45 GHz carrier frequency and its pulsed WiFi variant.  The review was commissioned by diagnose:funk. This review is particularly explosive, as WiFi is to be installed everywhere, including for “digital education” in kindergartens and schools. The work of I. Wilke confirms the results of the review of Naziroglu/Akman, which was published in the Springer Reference in the year 2014 and the new Review of M. Pall (2018).

In the summary of the review by I. Wilke it says: “Current exposure limits and SAR values do not protect from health risks associated with Wi-Fi radiation. The adverse effects on learning, attention, and behavior serve as a basis for educational institutions of all age groups to forgo the use of Wi-Fi applications. Due to cytotoxic effects, Wi-Fi technologies are not suitable for hospitals and telemedicine. Wi-Fi technologies should not be used in bedrooms, work spaces, common lounges, hospital rooms, lecture halls, classrooms, and public transport. The possible risks associated with Wi-Fi radiation could be avoided by testing alternative technologies at other frequency bands like optical VLC/Li-Fi technologies (visible light communication). When Wi-Fi cannot be avoided as a transition solution, the ALARA principle must be applied: no continuous transmission, instead Wi-Fi networks that can be turned off and feature dynamic power management.”

 

Due to the study situation, the Cypriot and Austrian medical associations are calling for WLAN in a joint appeal:  “Decision makers especially in Education and the Health Sector need to be aware of risks and safe alternatives of the Technology, must consider adequately Health concerns, children’s vulnerability and support safe environment in schools, day-care and paediatric units. They must promote age related rational application of digital technology and not allow at schools, particular at preschool, kindergarten and elementary schools wireless networks and opt for wired connections.”

Can your car make you sick?

This is a great article. Part of it is recreated below. Read more to learn what to do and what it can cause.

Sources of EMF Radiation In Cars

  1. The Battery – Most car batteries are a form of DC power, and do not typically emit EMF Radiation consistent with AC power. However, they often will emit a powerful temporary field of DC voltage when changing currents, such as when the vehicle first starts. People that are especially EMF sensitive (suffer from EHS) are likely to respond to this.
  2. Vehicle Relay Switches – Many operations in the vehicle will cause these relay switches to fire, such as pressing the break, turning on the hazard lights, flipping a turn signal, etc. These relay switches create magnetic field radiation.
  3. Vehicle Computer Systems – These should be self explanatory. Any type of computer system will emit a large amount of EMF radiation. Both the on board computer that controls the media system, as well as engine compartment computers will emit radiation.
  4. Electric Engines – Most vehicles have small electric engines that control things like windows and wiper blades that will emit a small amount of radiation.
  5. Alternator – The vehicle alternator is one of the largest sources of EMF radiation. Most commonly found in the far side of the engine compartment, the alternator creates dirty electricity and EMF radiation as it alters the electrical waves to fit the needs of the vehicle.
  6. Key-less Entry Systems and Start Systems – Many new vehicles now no longer require a key, but instead rely on radio waves from the remote control key, and a push button to start the vehicle. These more advanced systems utilize both radio waves, and Bluetooth radiation  to control these systems, both of which emit EMF radiation.
  7. On Board Wifi – Wifi creates an enormous amount of radiation (read more about that here). Many vehicles are now coming equipped with Wifi routers built in so that families can be connected without having to rely on cell towers. This is EXTREMELY harmful as it produces an enormous amount of harmful radiation in very close proximity.
  8. Alarm Systems – Also utilizing radio waves, these alarm systems produce EMF radiation.

 

 

New film on wireless radiation

RT America released the film Wi-Fi Refugees today and it is being viewed by millions all over the world on their live stream. It is a 52-minute documentary on what wireless radiation is, what it does to our bodies and our planet, and what life is like for the increasing number of citizens becoming ill from it. Several Massachusetts residents are interviewed in the film:

  • The clown, Jonathan Mirin, and his wife, Godlieve Richard who portrays the physician in their play Innocenzo, are from Shelburne, MA.
  • Ida Paredo is from Hopkinton and she shares what happened to her health after seven “smart” meters were installed on her condo wall.
  • Patricia Burke is from Millis and we see her helping Pamela Steinberg from Worcester measure the EMFs in her home, and learn how Pam has to protect herself from wireless signals coming from outside her home.
  • Patricia also joins me at Ashland High School where we measure the radiation from wi-fi systems which students and staff are exposed to daily in schools throughout the Commonwealth. We also discuss how other countries protect their citizens but in America the FCC is pushing more wireless into our society with 5G, even though the current U.S. National Toxicology Program study shows it causes DNA damage, brain and heart tumors.

I have cc:d each of these courageous MA residents if you would like to reach out to them directly with questions or comments.

 

I hope you will watch Wi-Fi Refugees with your loved ones so we can all learn together and do what we can to implement technology best practices in our homes, our towns and our society at large.

 

Technology is here to stay, so the message is not “no technology” but rather “safe technology”. This can be achieved through hard-wired Ethernet/fiber optic connections, by keeping mobile devices primarily in airplane mode, moving wireless infrastructure away from homes/schools/medical facilities, and encouraging industry to bring biologically safe mobile technology to market before we install any new infrastructure.

 

Massachusetts is to be commended for leading the nation with seven bills to begin examining the health impact of wireless radiation. Hopefully we can be the catalyst to help our nation turn the tide on this invisible ubiquitous toxin. Please include this submission as testimony for:

  1. S.1268 Resolve creating a special commission to examine the health impacts of electromagnetic fields
  2. S.1864 An Act relative to utilities, smart meters, and ratepayers’ rights
  3. S.107 An Act relative to disclosure of radiofrequency notifications
  4. S.108 An Act relative to the safe use of handheld devices by children
  5. H.2030 An Act relative to best management practices for wireless in schools and public institutions of higher education
  6. S.2079 An Act reducing non-ionizing radiation exposure in schools
  7. S.2080 An Act increasing medical awareness and insurance coverage of non-ionizing radiation injury and reliance upon credible independent medical research

The best video on EMF and DNA damage

Great video on how EMFs especially from cell phones and Wifi disrupt DNA. It also describes the restrictions France has on Wifi in schools and talkes about the coming 5G in the USA where our gov’t has put a law in front of Congress to prohibit local governments from restricting this technology. Basically we are having it forced upon us without any recourse.

Dave’s Story

I was apprised of your site on the internet and this contact address in your goal to maybe create safe havens for EMF sensitive people. I sincerely hope this can come to pass, but at my age it will most likely be too late for me personally, but at least others to come after me that are younger may not have to go through as much as what I have had to.

I think a big part of my EMF sensitivity is from 35 years of working around very intense electromagnetic fields at the John F. Kennedy Space Center in ground communications here in Florida. Most especially after about 1980 when a lot of computers were installed everywhere out there. I have found that digital electronics are far worse for making people EMF sensitive than are the old analog fields. Presently I cannot go on long trips because I cannot stay in motels because of chemicals used to clean the rooms and chemicals used in washing blankets and sheets such as scented detergents and fabric softeners, etc. Also in most  motels you get rooms with televisions, wi-fi, and even small electrical substations right on the other side of bedroom walls, along with some walls fronting on drink machines and icemakers. All of these put out strong EM Fields. I had a camper van that I used for a couple of trips, but it is now ruined because the area where I live here in Florida is full of mold, and now even though my van doesn’t leak, it’s now full of mold and makes me sick to sleep in it.

The other problem with travel is that after about a hundred miles or so of driving under high tension power lines either across the highway at intervals of parallel to it, my EMF sensitivity gets far worse with severe sharp pains in my head when next to or driving under these lines. The more exposure there is, the worse it gets, so that I eventually have to get off the highway and stay some where to recuperate. Then when I get back on the highway it starts all over again. So as a consequence I am confined mostly to this area where I live and cannot travel any more than about 75 miles from home. To make matters even worse, eating out in restaurants with allergies to all foods and on a strict rotation diet becomes a near impossibility when traveling unless I eat only pre-packaged junk from convenience stores that I know the exact ingredients of. (Believe it or not that is safer than restaurants in most cases, but of course maybe not as nutritious.

The Bioinitiative Report

In 2007, this report had been written by 14 (fourteen) scientists, public health and public policy experts to document the scientific evidence on electromagnetic fields. Another dozen outside reviewers had looked at and refined the Report. The most recent report was in 2012 (see below).

The purpose of this report was to assess scientific evidence on health impacts from electromagnetic radiation below current public exposure limits and evaluate what changes in these limits are warranted now to reduce possible public health risks in the future. Not everything is known yet about this subject; but what is clear is that the existing public safety standards limiting these radiation levels in nearly every country of the world look to be thousands of times too lenient.Changes are needed. New approaches are needed to educate decision-makers and the public about sources of exposure and to find alternatives that do not pose the same level of possible health risks, while there is still time to make changes.

Their findings back then included:

  • The effects of long-term exposure to wireless technologies including emissions from cell phones and other personal devices, and from whole-body exposure to RF transmissions from cell towers and antennas is simply not known yet with certainty. However, the body of evidence at hand suggests that bioeffects and health impacts can and do occur at exquisitely low exposure levels: levels that can be thousands of times below public safety limits.
The report goes on to implicate wi-fi radiation in brain tumors, childhood leukemia, and possibly other cancers and neurological diseases.  Children were noted to be particularly vulnerable.
  • These effects can reasonably be presumed to result in adverse health effects and disease with chronic and uncontrolled exposures, and children may be particularly vulnerable. The young are also largely unable to remove themselves from such environments. Second-hand radiation, like second-hand smoke is an issue of public health concern based on the evidence at hand.

 Bioinitiative Report 2012 http://www.bioinitiative.org/table-of-contents/

Summary of the results:
  • Bioeffects are clearly established and occur at very low levels of exposure to electromagnetic fields and radiofrequency radiation. Bioeffects can occur in the first few minutes at levels associated with cell and cordless phone use. Bioeffects can also occur from just minutes of exposure to mobile phone masts (cell towers), WI-FI, and wireless utility ‘smart’ meters that produce whole-body exposure. Chronic base station level exposures can result in illness.
  • Many of these bioeffects can reasonably be presumed to result in adverse health effects if the exposures are prolonged or chronic. This is because they interfere with normal body processes (disrupt homeostasis), prevent the body from healing damaged DNA, produce immune system imbalances, metabolic disruption and lower resilience to disease across multiple pathways. Essential body processes can eventually be disabled by incessant external stresses (from system-wide electrophysiological interference) and lead to pervasive impairment of metabolic and reproductive functions.
  •  Many disrupted physiological processes and impaired behaviors in people with ASDs closely resemble those related to biological and health effects of EMF/RFR exposure. Biomarkers and indicators of disease and their clinical symptoms have striking similarities.
