Telecom presents 5G to President Trump: “No need for fiber to homes,” the rep explains. 5G uses fiber to the pole and then goes wirelessly the rest of the way. What he doesn’t mention is that by melding the fiber network (that we paid for) with the wireless infrastructure, they become an unregulated service. Win/win for Telecom. Lose/lose for us.
Top 10 Facts About Cell Phones and Wi-Fi
1. All cell phones and wireless devices emit radiation.
2. Our brains and bodies are penetrated by this radiation.
3. Cell phones and wireless devices emit radiation constantly, even when you are not talking or using the phone.
4. Every wireless device has fine print instructions buried in its user manual that specify a distance between the device and user that should not be surpassed.
For example, most cell phone manuals state the phone should be held at specified distance (often around 5/8th of an inch) from the body. If you look in the user manual for your DECT cordless home phone, wireless laptop or printer, it will state that the device should be at least 20 cm (approximately 8 inches) away from the body to prevent “exceeding FCC radiation exposure limits”. These instructions are in the user manuals because cell phones and wireless devices are tested for user radiation exposures at those specific distances.
In other words, if you are using a laptop on your lap, you are exposing yourself to untested radiation emissions that could exceed the radiation levels our government regulations presently allow. When you use a device closer than the manufacturer’s distance instructions, you risk exposing yourself to radiation levels that our federal government understands can cause sterility, brain damage and tissue damage. Learn more about the fine print warnings on various devices here.
5. These fine print instructions DO NOT protect you from all health effects.
6. Research shows low levels of this radiation impact the brain and reproductive system.
7. Radiation emitted by cell phones and wireless is officially linked to cancer.
8.The evidence linking wireless radiation to cancer has significantly increased since 2011.
In 2016, a major US government study found cell phone radiation caused increased cancers (brain and heart nerve) in rats exposed at low levels for two years. The results were stunning because the cancers the rats developed are the same type humans are developing after long term cell phone use.
Furthermore, since 2011, new research studies have been published linking wireless radiation to cancer. CERENAT (a case control national study in France) again showed a statistically significant association between glioma (brain cancer) and long-erm cell phone use. Another study (which replicated previous study results) showed that RF acted as a tumor promoter. The study details in its conclusion how, “Numbers of tumors of the lungs and livers in exposed animals were significantly higher than in sham-exposed controls. In addition, lymphomas were also found to be significantly elevated by exposure.”
In light of this published science, several World Health Organization experts are stating that the evidence has now substantially increased. Dr. Anthony B. Miller has testified as to the increased evidence, and he and colleagues have written several published papers detailing their opinion. Dr. Hardell states that wireless “should be regarded as human carcinogen requiring urgent revision of current exposure guidelines.”
9. Solutions exist: Hundreds of scientists worldwide recommend taking precautions to reduce exposures to wireless devices because of the serious risk these devices pose to public health.
10. Government regulations are outdated and antiquated.
In the United States, the last review for radio frequency limits was in 1996, and the reality is that these are limits are based on research from the 1980s. Many countries are using guidelines developed by the IEEE or ICNIRP—guidelines that have remained unchanged for decades. Those guidelines do not consider the more current science showing harm.Regulations are antiquated because they have not kept pace with the manner in which consumers use devices—usage has changed considerably since 1996. For example, the regulations only consider one radiating device at a time and do not account for a residence, classroom, or workplace, healthcare, retail, recreational and other venues filled with multiple devices. The regulations do not consider that people carry their cell phones tightly in a front pocket of jeans or in a bra. They do not consider that laptops would be placed on laps by schoolchildren in the classroom. Regulations did not consider research that looked at long-term exposures to children or medically compromised individuals. Guidelines were set by only considering the impact to a full-grown man.
Final Bonus Fact: No safe level of this radiation has been identified.
Scientific studies have not been done to develop a “safe level” of exposure. The latest science clearly shows that biological effects could occur at non-thermal (non-heating) levels. Science also shows that children and the developing pregnancy are far more vulnerable to these damaging effects. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) did not do research necessary to define a safe level that the public can be exposed to without harmful effects.
In a 2015 study (replicating prior scientific findings linking RF to cancer promotion), the researchers state, “Since many of the tumor-promoting effects in our study were seen at low to moderate exposure levels (0.04 and 0.4 W/kg SAR), thus well below exposure limits for the users of mobile phones, further studies are warranted to investigate the underlying mechanisms.” and “We hypothesize that these tumor-promoting effects may be caused by metabolic changes due to exposure. Our findings may help to understand the repeatedly reported increased incidences of brain tumors in heavy users of mobile phones.”
No medical organization has determined a “safe level” of this radiation for long-term exposure to children.

The FCC voted to move forward with 5G, an extremely dangerous technology. Read Chairman Wheelers comments about the Spectrum Frontiers Proceeding (https://www.fcc.gov/document/remarks-chairman-wheeler-future-wireless). This would put 5G transmitters on power and light poles throughout communities across the United States with the aim of creating enough saturation of very high frequency microwave radiation that fiber optic level connectivity is available wirelessly everywhere.
Thank you to all who contacted the FCC Commissioners in opposition. While we figure out the best ways in which to move forward, please help to raise awareness of the National Toxicology Program results showing that wireless radiation is carcinogenic and breaks DNA.
We need everyone to educate their Congresspeople and opponents in the election about the dangers of wireless radiation. We also need everyone to file comments in opposition to 5G in the relevant dockets. The FDA is supposed to put out warnings in light of the National Toxicology Program results showing that wireless radiation is carcinogenic and breaks DNA. They are dragging their feet. Please write them as well.
Background and Contact Information Please take a moment to contact the FCC Commissioners BEFORE their vote on July 14 in opposition to the rollout of 5G. A template letter is below, please take a moment personalize it briefly with your experience to give it greater impact.

Please send a copy of your letter to your U.S. Representative and Senators and the relevant committees (listed below).
Ultimately, it is Congress that decided to give sole responsibility for wireless promotion and safety to an industry dominated agency. It is essential that they hear from you. Only they can give authority for health back to the EPA, which has tried in the past to protect the public. Congress defunded EPA and removed its authority to protect the public from wireless radiation to stop it (http://www.stopglobalwifi.org/documents/PressReleaseDec2015.pdf).

Dear FCC Commissioners,
Spectrum Frontiers Proceeding is being represented as an unqualified good, but it is not. It will do great harm to human health and the environment.
Please vote “no” to the Spectrum Frontiers Proceeding. There has been no NEPA review of the environmental and human health impacts of moving forward with 5G. The FCC has put the cart before the horse in promulgating rules for 5G without first studying the safety of 5G for humans and the environment. There is consensus within the scientific community that the existing FCC limits for wireless radiation do not protect the population from biological effects (www.EMFscientist.org)
The National Toxicology Program recently release results showing that radiofrequency radiation (RFR) can indeed both break DNA and cause cancer (http://www.saferemr.com/2016/05/national-toxicology-progam-finds-cell.html and http://microwavenews.com/news-center/ntp-nyt). Furthermore, the literature on RFR in the very high frequency bands required for 5G document DNA breakages, serious cellular resonance effects, and other detrimental metabolic effects (http://www.bioinitiative.org/report/wp-content/uploads/pdfs/sec15_2012_Evidence_Disruption_Modulation.pdf and http://www.stopglobalwifi/documents/2001_kositsky_et_al._-_ussr_review.pdf).
Non-industry funded studies have consistently found links between RFR and various negative biological effects (www.bioinitiative.org). They include serious neurological, cardiac, and metabolic effects, as well as DNA breakage which can lead to cancer and genetic defects (http://www.mainecoalitiontostopsmartmeters.org/?p=1469).
Studies, including the National Toxicology Program studies, have shown wireless to be a dangerous technology and 5G, according to Chairman Wheeler’s own comments, is an infrastructure intensive technology. So, invest in safe, wired infrastructure instead of spending a lot of money to saturate entire communities with hazardous radiation. The “cool” factor is not worth the peril.
Please see “Wireless Technology Violates Human Rights” (http://www.electricalpollution.com/documents/WirelessViolatesHumanRights2016.pdf) for more information about the very serious ways in which wireless technology violates human rights.
Don’t vote to unleash a dangerous environmental pollutant on your friends, family, and, indeed, the whole country. Vote to protect your family, friends, and the country – vote “no” on Spectrum Frontiers. Be on the right side of history.

[vid] Indian Govt puts stringent mobile radiation norms into force The new regulations regarding radiation emissions from cellular towers and mobile phones come into effect from today, making India one among the few countries in the world to have stringent Electromagnetic Frequency Radiation Standards. In the interest of public health, the Indian standards are now 10 times more stringent than over 90 per cent of the countries. The EMF exposure limit for Base Station Emissions has been lowered to one tenth of the existing level.
[2009 EW] For those gifted to see the energy around towers Before a tower is gifted I see dark to black shape clouds hanging around the boxes attached to the towers. I’ve seen various shape devices and see this dark matter usually on the outer side of them. Sometimes I see it come and go and what looks like a thick rod shooting up above the tower. All this dark matter seems to pulsate and fluctuate but it’s constantly there. Once I gift the tower I have seen from 10 to minutes later those dark clouds seem to be gone and in there place I see white energy similar in shape to the previous dark matter. Sometimes above the tower I see a little pink mixed in the the new white energy.
[pdf 2009] Observations from a Psychotherapy Practice on Mobile Telecommunications and DECT Telephones by Dr. med. Christine Aschermann Later several patients were diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia or multiple chemical sensitivity syndrome (MCS). In several others, there was a persistent Epstein Barr virus infection, the so-called glandular fever. However, it did not present in its classic form, but rather in its chronic form that often is not detected by the doctors.”
“Cell Tower Infrastructure”
“This seems to me to be rather excessive. Watts = Volts x Amps Therefore, 240 volts x’s 800 amps = 192 Kilowatts per hour x’s 3 phase = 576 KWH. Transmitters at microwave frequencies normal only require a max of 1.0 watt, not kilo watts. If this is true then there is covert agenda going on. This type of supply and fusing system will be mega expensive. I don’t know what to say, except run for the hills. Power is a square law, i.e. Amps (squared) x’s Resistance in ohms. So if you double the voltage you square the power. Nasty.”–Electrical engineer
‘What Are ‘Death Towers?’—Don Croft
Every standing tower in the world, pretty much, can be seen by energy sensitives and psychics to give off very dense, destructive dead Orgone radiation–the energy of death and decay. Ordinary communication transmitters, even the huge microwave transmitters, only gave off a little bit of that energy, if any, and all radio and TV towers were drafted into the HAARP network in recent years, so they’re death transmitters. The difference between HAARP and your neighbourhood death tower is that HAARP shoots the DOR up into the atmosphere and the neighbourhood towers direct it down at the surrounding population. High tension power lines, even though they’re known to kill people with cancer if they live too close, also only give off a little bit of DOR. That’s why I call them ‘death towers.’ Most folks call them ‘cellphone towers’ but in fact any rational person understands that even primary cell transmitters require no more power than your apartment or house does, so the bundle of massive cables that run from the fortified blockhouses to the towers’ death energy producing panels, rods, drums and dishes should be suspect.

Mind Control Now ‘On The Air’, Sept. 25, 2004
ELF Towers by Don Croft & Ken Adachi The whole damn dumb show was supposed to go down in late 99, but they didn’t get people’s guns, that big final obstacle to fascism. That’s when they hit upon these ELF towers. Tested them in Ventura, Africa, and the Sudan. They had GWEN operational in ’92, but it did entire counties and would affect their own people, who have body suits they were (lined with lead-impregnated kevlar- which blocks elf and piggyback freqs.). So they found out that the little towers, by the tens of thousands, they could literally aim any energy like a gun to a single home, a given range area, and so forth.

 Security Experts’ ‘Suicides’ Called Into Question — European Media Probe Dangers of Secret Surveillance Systems in March of 2005, Costas Tsalikidis, a 38-year-old software engineer for Vodaphone in Greece had just discovered a highly sophisticated bug embedded in the company’s mobile network. The spyware eavesdropped on the prime minister’s and other top officials’ cell phone calls; it even monitored the car phone of Greece’s secret service chief. Others bugged included civil rights activists, the head of Greece’s “Stop the War” coalition, journalists and Arab businessmen based in Athens. All the wiretapping began about two months before the Olympics were hosted by Greece in August 2004, according to a subsequent investigation by the Greek authorities.
Tsalikidis, according to friends and family, was excited about his work and was looking forward to marrying his longtime girlfriend. But on March 9, 2005, his elderly mother found him hanging from a white rope tied to pipes outside of his apartment bathroom. His limp feet dangled a mere three inches above the floor. His death was ruled a suicide. The next day, Vodaphone’s top executive in Greece reported to the prime minister that unknown outsiders had illicitly eavesdropped on top government officials. Before making his report, however, the CEO had the spyware destroyed, even though this destroyed the evidence as well.
— the Vodaphone eavesdropping was transmitted in real time via four antennae located near the U.S. embassy in Athens, according to an 11-month Greek government investigation. Some of these transmissions were sent to a phone in Laurel, Md., near America’s National Security Agency.
— according to Ta Nea, a Greek newspaper, Vodaphone’s CEO privately told the Greek government that the bugging culprits were “U.S. agents.” Because Greece’s prime minister feared domestic protests and a diplomatic war with the United States, he ordered the Vodafone CEO to withhold this conclusion from his own authorities investigating the case
TETRA, power lines & Cell phone
Live and Extremely Dangerous by Professor Denis Henshaw He estimates that power lines notch up the following grim tally each year: eight cases of childhood leukaemia, 14 cases of skin cancer, up to 400 cases of lung cancer, several thousand cases of illnesses associated with air pollution ( such as respiratory disease, allergies and aggravated asthma), 9,000 cases of depression and 60 suicides. The vast majority of these cases, he says, are caused by electrical effects, not by the magnetic fields that were under investigation by the NRPB. “These are figures comparable to the number killed on roads” But road deaths are spread throughout the country, while only one in 50 of the population lives under power lines. So the rate of casualty here is 50 times greater than the risk of being on the road.”….People who accuse you of scaremongering are those who don’t want the truth to come out. The utility companies can never admit in public that there is an effect, because that would be admitting liability.”
