When asked about implementing 5G in 2019, Brussels’ Environment Minister, Celine Fremault was quoted saying “the people of Brussels are not guinea pigs whose health I can sell at a profit. We cannot leave anything to doubt.” Comparatively here in the United States, we are bombarded with advertisements that boast about the speed, accessibility, and necessity of 5G. Of course, unlike other countries, the United States has also embraced the digitization of our life beyond recognition. There are more cell phones in the United States than there are people, so it comes as no surprise that 5G would be an easier sell to our public. Alongside guest Devra L. Davis, we take a deeper look at why the telecom industry is manufacturing demand for 5G, as well as the overwhelming amount of research on global 5G wireless networks and how they threaten various species and ecosystems.

In conversation, Dr. Davis explains why there is so much conflicting evidence when it comes to EMF and RF exposure, possible explanations for why colorectal cancer is increasing amongst young people, how electromagnetic radiation impacts migratory species, and what tree crowns are telling us about radio frequency radiation. Dr. Davis carefully explains that the existing science on cell phone radiation and 5G is merely asking us to take adequate steps to reduce our exposure because the technology itself has yet to be proven harmless. With this in mind, we are called to partake in a thoughtful rebellion when it comes to resisting the internet of things that continues to grow around us.
