Although 5G technology brings faster transmission speeds, the 5G wavelengths are short and only have a range of about 1,000 feet. Comparatively 4G range is about 10 miles. This means that 5G technology requires the installation of thousands more cell towers, mid cell towers, pico cells and metro cells for what the cell industry calls “network densification”. Our concern is the complete saturation of our environment with an intense increase in electromagnetic radiation and the effect on wildlife, plants and the health of our citizens, especially children.
This means that the telecommunication companies would be adding a substantial and
intense level of electromagnetic radiation to our environment which is already saturated with electromagnetic pollution. A cohort study, which follows groups of people forward in time, has never been completed examining the dangers of the cumulative radio frequency and microwave radiation on human beings (radios, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, cellular, smart meters, etc).
In fact, fiber optic cable is not only extremely safe, vastly more secure, requires much less energy, and transmits data literally thousands of times faster and at infinitely greater distances than any current wireless technology like 4G and 5G. Learn more about fiber optics here.
In your smart phone's manual (you may have to look it up on the manufacturer's website) there is a warning that explicitly states that you must not put the phone to your head or keep it on your body so as to avoid exceeding the unit's radiation exposure limits. As well, a recent independent investigation has revealed that the iPhone 7 measured over the legal safety limit and more than double what Apple reported to federal regulators from its own testing.
Prohibits local jurisdictions from considering perceived health effects when opposing a proposed wireless installation (5G or otherwise).
As well, the South Carolina Bill H4262 "Small Wireless Facilities Deployment Act", in the Senate as of 4/2020, if passed, would prohibit local municipalities from opposing or regulating the telecommunications deployment of 5G technology.
