What does the 5GNetwork and a Non-Lethal Weapon developed by the military have in common? The Department of Defense has developed a non-lethal crowd control device called the Active Denial System (ADS). The ADS works by firing a high-powered beam of 95 GHz waves at a target—that is, millimeter wavelengths.
5G is the latest wireless system that telecommunications companies are trying to implement to service wireless communication. It’s designed to allow faster downloads of more data. It uses the from 1GHz up to 95 GHz bands, also known as millimetre wave (mmW) spectrum. 5G, which comes from the term 5th generation, is designed to work in conjunction with what former CIA head David Petraeus called the Internet of Things or IoT.
Dr. Paul Heroux, Faculty of Medicine, Director of Occupational Health Program within the Department of Epidemiology, Statistics and Occupational Health at Mc Gill university, discusses industry responsibility and influence on deploying wireless technology. Lloyds of London nor Swiss Re will underwrite a liability policy for electromagnetic radiation, setting up an environment ripe for a Class Action Lawsuit.He points out the link between wireless technology and cancer, warning that we need to be cleaning up and reducing our exposure to wireless radiation not adding new frequencies and infrastructure. He notes that every American at one time needed a chicken in every pot but wireless radiation is a bad idea and we need fiberoptic on every home.
Federal regulations protect the public only from the thermal (i.e., heating) risk due to short-term exposure to high intensity, cell tower radiation. The Federal regulations ignore the hundreds of studies that find harmful bio-effects from long-term exposure to non-thermal levels of cell phone radiation. The Telecommunications Act of 1996 does not allow communities to stop the siting of cell towers for health reasons. Nevertheless, landlords may be liable for any harm caused by cell phone radiation emitted by towers situated on their property. Localities need to organize and change the Federal law to protect public health and wildlife from exposure to microwave radiation emitted by mobile phone base stations.
As of March 10, 2019, www.antennasearch.com, an industry website, reports 712,000 cell towers and 1.98 million cell antennas in the U.S. We cannot verify the accuracy of these data because the FCC only collects data on certain types of cell towers.
Following are some resources regarding the health effects of exposure to cell tower radiation. I will occasionally update this page.
