Cancer and Cell Phones | 5G Deception | Chris Moore and Dr. Devra Davis on Pittsburgh Now – WPXI

Would you set foot on an airplane whose safety standards were last updated 25 years ago? No, you wouldn’t. Yet the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) doesn’t want to update its safety rules for cell phones’ wireless radiation — written in 1996 — despite massive increases in their use and power today. Worse still, the FCC now wants to decide for your community where an antenna can be located, whether outside your home or your child’s school. The FCC wants to pass a rule that prevents local authorities from having any say over where telecoms can put their 5G cell phone antennas, including on school grounds. That means property rights are at risk and local authorities have no means to earn revenue or say where antennas may or may not be sited. Why is the FCC so bent on this decision? According to a Harvard University Law School report, the FCC is a “captured agency,” meaning that the telecom communications industry that the agency is supposed to regulate has taken over the agency. The agency is at the mercy of the telecoms. With a captured agency, the public cannot expect the FCC to look out for its interests — certainly not when it comes to the deployment of 5G. 5G may be advertised as the latest boon to mankind with its faster downloads and connection speeds, but the telecom industry has a lot more information than is made available to the public about the risks from cell phone radiation exposure. In reality, for 5G to work, it is going to have to rely on the old frequencies of 3G and 4G, which means that it is not in fact a new system. It is a layer of additional frequencies on top of the current system. 5G is an experiment. It has never been tested for its environmental or health or safety impacts. It relies on very fast frequencies that go very short distances. To get three-second downloads of movies to your wristwatch or your phone in an urban environment, you’re going to need to have an antenna every 150 feet. And with the extra layer of radiation exposure, the risks go up. The dangers of the current wireless system have been known for years. Scientific advisers to the World Health Organization warned that cell phone radiation exposure is a definite cause of cancer in humans. This is no surprise. In the largest study ever done — by the U.S. National Toxicology Program — government scientists found cell phone radiation at normal levels — not 5G, but the lower levels of 3G and 4G — can cause cancer in animals. The news was not well received by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which commissioned the study. Since the end of the NTP study, the U.S. has essentially stopped monitoring the biological and environmental effects of exposure to cell phone radiation. Most of the data now comes from Europe, where countries like Switzerland have much more stringent standards than the United States. We must listen to the results of the NTP study. If we don’t, we’re experimenting on our children and ourselves. That’s why Environmental Health Trust is calling for an independent commission to begin an evaluation around the science. Without the animal studies, the public becomes the guinea pig. The public does not question whether wireless is safe because it is accustomed to the government telling it when something is not safe — just as it came out with car seat belt recommendations 40 years ago ad continues to provide guidance on airline and vehicle safety. We need the equivalent of seat belts for wireless devices. We need a public education program starting with teachers and parents because they don’t know that they are giving a two-way microwave radiation device to their children. We must do a better job letting people know what’s buried inside the operating systems of their devices right now Would you fly in a plane using 25-year-old standards? We pride ourselves in the United States on protecting our children and ourselves. Why are we unwilling to take action to protect ourselves from wireless radiation and the telecoms that keep pushing 5G technology?
