5G Opposition Increases in the Pacific Northwest. Telecom Industry Has Still Provided No Evidence that 5G is Safe.

In February, Telecom Industry executives gave congressional testimony that they cannot provide any scientific evidence that 5G is safe.

What they didn’t say is that there is research that has already proven that 5G is harmful.  That’s why opposition to 5G continues to increase in the U.S. and around the world.  Here are excerpts from a recent news story from KNKX:


Activists are asking city or county governments of at least seven Pacific Northwest communities to defy the federal government. They want to stop the deployment of next-generation 5G cellular service.

But the Federal Communications Commission and Trump administration have made the speedy rollout of faster wireless networks a national priority. City officials find themselves pulled in multiple directions with their options becoming more limited by federal preemption with each passing season.

The cross-currents were on display at the most recent public forum — open mic night, basically — of the Eugene City Council. The public comments there could have just as well been heard at council or commission chambers from Bellingham, Port Angeles and Gig Harbor in Washington, to Portland, Corvallis, and Ashland in Oregon.

I want to say first the 5G situation is a nightmare and an emergency,” said Eugene resident Sabrina Siegel when her name was called Tuesday. “You are really dragging your feet on it.”


“It is foolish and irresponsible to allow the rollout of 5G with no definite evidence of the safety of this technology,” Philip Anderson, another Eugene resident, told the council members.

“The members of the City Council would have complete authority to pass a moratorium halting the further placement of 5G small cells throughout Eugene,” resident Becky Bruckner asserted, citing “anti-commandeering doctrine.”

Siegel, Anderson, Bruckner, and others objected to the antennas going in atop power poles and street lights about every six blocks in Eugene. Wireless company contractors are hard at work in other Northwest cities too, in preparation for 5G service to become operational next year.

Council members said federal law doesn’t allow for the permitting moratorium requested by the 5G opponents.

The millimeter wave frequencies used for 5G carry way more data than current generation cell service, but the radio waves don’t travel as far. So, wireless carriers need to deploy thousands more of these new, small cell transmitter antennas.

The objectors raise a myriad of health concerns to what one local group dubbed as “electrosmog.”

“I’ve changed my opinion on this,” Joshua Korn, an alternative medicine online merchant, testified facetiously in Eugene. “Now I fully support 5G because I want more cancer, more disrupted sleep, more adrenal problems, more reproductive problems, more birth defects, more compromised immune systems.”

Right on, Joshua.

Despite 5G proponents insistence that everybody wants 5G, there’s at least one U.S. city which installed it and few have signed up for it:  Sacramento, CA.

From CBS Sacramento:

Research suggests that nearly six months later, fewer than one-tenth of one percent of people living in single-family homes here have signed up for the service. The study concedes that while multi-family dwellings could boost the percentage, it was not possible to determine the number of subscribers in a large apartment and condominium complexes.

The research revealed that the 273 small 5G cell sites installed by Verizon under an agreement with the city of Sacramento cover less than six percent of residential addresses in the seven zip codes analyzed — and of those eligible addresses, fewer than half have signed on with Verizon.

Other issues associated with 5G installation include cybersecurity risks, privacy violations, property value reduction, and weather forecasting accuracy.

It’s not only 5G that’s a problem.  There is research that proves all sources of cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation is harmful.

Exposure is especially harmful to children.  Our pets are also affected by exposure.  Wildlife and nature are affected by exposure too.
