A Trojan horse?

  • HOWE

Chris Joseph’s recent letter responded to the issue of Wi-Fi and the health challenges that I mentioned in My Turn (“There is always more to know about Lyme disease”) on May 17. There was reference to a World Health Organization (WHO) article written in 2006 when radio frequency technology was at 3G level. Much has changed since then.

I would like to share some information from the nonprofit WirelessEducation.com:

Our world’s scientists are indicating today’s electrosmog is bringing the worst public health crisis technologically advanced nations have ever seen.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) $25 million National Toxicology Program study concluded cellphone radio frequency radiation is a clear carcinogen.

All wireless technology uses radio frequency radiation to carry our data packets back and forth, and it was never safety tested before being brought to market.

Even the IEEE, which helped form the untested thermal-based FCC public radiation exposure limits in the 1990s, is conceding wireless technology is hazardous at the non-thermal level. See their cancer article in the September/October 2018 issue of IEEE Microwave Magazine.

The effects of wireless radiation exposures are cumulative. Serious harm is happening now with current exposures, some of which is already becoming irreversible.

The industry’s push for more wireless infrastructure to enable 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT) “is absolutely insane.” Yet the industry remains intent on being first to market with 5G and the Internet of Things.

Public policy will take time to catch up to the science — it could be decades — but the harm is happening right now, so we cannot afford to wait for new laws to protect us.

We are bio-electrical beings and this constant exposure to microwave radiation pulses is hampering our cell-to-cell electrical signaling and causing a cascade of detrimental health effects. Quite simply, we are not built to stand this kind of man-made radiation assault.

It is imperative that we all come up to speed quickly and open this conversation with others before the industry puts toxic 5G antennas inside our neighborhoods, every two to 12 houses outside our bedrooms. They’ve already quietly begun these “small cell” installations in a lot of communities and people are already getting sick without knowing why.

As a Harvard report indicates, very few know wireless technology is hazardous as the credible science showing harm has been suppressed from the public in big tobacco fashion. We’re not yet getting this information from mainstream media, which has conflicts of interest with industry advertising revenue. The industry keeps pushing the convenience and economic opportunity of wireless with no information on the serious risks so we, and our legislators, keep buying into “smart” technology.

Yet, with a little education, folks begin to connect the dots as to why they or their children don’t sleep well anymore, why they have skin rashes/tingling, headaches, nosebleeds, ringing in the ears, irregular heartbeats, fatigue, brain fog, memory loss, anxiety, depression, behavior issues, etc.

We are very lucky today to have not only the NTP study and expert talks to share, but the award-winning film “Generation Zapped.”

Many are thrilled to discover their health issues disappear or go way down when they choose to reduce wireless radiation exposures.

What we don’t feel in the short-term though, is that cumulative exposure is mounting and can cause DNA damage, neurological issues, adult and child cancers, early onset Alzheimer’s, infertility, autism and more.

Future harm can be avoided with safe hard-wired devices indoors, and infrastructure that brings cable/copper/fiber-optics to the premises instead of wireless radiation antennas mounted outside or in sky-based satellites. When we’re on the go, we can learn to use mobile devices sparingly, away from our bodies in active mode, and in airplane mode when not in use.

Let’s all do what we can from where we are to shift from reliance on toxic wireless technology to building safer hard-wired infrastructure. Let’s share information on how to use today’s mobile technology more safely until industry brings biologically safe mobile technology to market. Microsoft’s Frank Clegg assures us the industry can do better, if given a nudge.

We need to educate others, and quickly, else we’ll all have 5G cell towers in the public access way right outside our homes pulsing radiation at us 24/7.
