On June 27, 2019, some of the leading Senators in Congress submitted a Bill – S. 2012 to restore local control over the deployment of 5G and abolish FCC regulations. 

The Bill S. 2012 – Restoring Local Control Over Public Infrastructure Act of 2019 was submitted by Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and is cosponsored by some of the leading Democrat Senators in Congress: Senator Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.), Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Ben Cardin (D-Md.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.).

The Bill aims to abolish 3 the following regulatory actions adopted by the Federal Communication Commission and declares then as having “no force or effect”. Following a

  1. The –  “Accelerating Wireline Broadband Deployment by Removing Barriers to Infrastructure Investment and Accelerating Wireless Broadband Deployment by Removing Barriers to Infrastructure Investment’’ adopted by the Commission on August 2, 2018 (FCC 18–111). 
  2. The ‘‘Declaratory Ruling and Third Report and Order in the matter of Accelerating Wireless Broadband Deployment by Removing Barriers to Infrastructure Investment and Accelerating Wireline Broadband Deployment by Removing Barriers to Infrastructure Investment’’ adopted by the Commission on September 26, 2018 (FCC 18–133).
  3. The rule adopted by the Commission titled ‘‘Accelerating Wireless and Wireline Broadband Deployment by Removing Barriers to Infrastructure Investment’’ (83 Fed. Reg. 51867 (October 15, 2018)).

The Bill is The bill is supported by the U.S. Conference of Mayors, National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors, American Public Power Association, Communications Workers of America, National Association of Counties, League of California Cities and American Public Works Association.

Rep. Eshoo (D-CA) submitted on January 14, 2019 a House Bill – H.R.  530 Accelerating Broadband Development by Empowering Local Communities Act of 2019 which overturns the FCC’s ruling FCC 18–111 & 83 Fed. Reg. 51867 . Hence, the Senate Bill is wider and overturns also the Sept. 26 ruling FCC 18–133

While these bills are very much welcomed they still do not address the most important issue – the health effects of this technology. When will a Congressman will introduce a bill to overturn Section 704 of the Telecommunication Act of 1996 and or to amend it to clarify that ‘Environmental Considerations’ do not include ‘Health’ considerations. 

IMPORTANT – TO ANYONE WHO WORKS WITH MUNICIPALITIES ON ORDINANCES

Please be aware that according to Next Century Cities analysis of compliance with the Sept. 26 FCC Regulations, titled Summary of Final FCC Small Cell Order municipalities should insert a clause into their agreement with a carrier or infrastructure provider that voids the agreement or requiring  its modification, in the event of a regulatory change (including the overturning of the Order). 

Following is the exact text from the document: 

If a city enters into an agreement with a carrier and then the Order is overturned, is the city stuck with the agreement?
The answer in general is yes. No city is required to enter into any agreement with a
carrier or infrastructure provider. If a city does so voluntarily, it will almost certainly be
held to the terms of the agreement by a court. However, a city might be able to resolve
this problem by including in the agreement a clause voiding the agreement or requiring
its modification, in the event of a regulatory change (including the overturning of the
Order). Many types of telecommunications agreements contain such regulatory change
clauses because parties recognize that the wording or scope of specific provisions in the
agreement has been dictated by the then-existing telecommunications regulatory
scheme, and should be changed if the regulations change.

 

On June 13, Oregon Senate, in a unanimous vote passed SB 283, school wireless safety bill which directs Oregon’s Health Authority to Review INDEPENDENTLY FUNDED studies (ie – excluding wireless industry funded studies) on the health effects of wireless technology radiaiton and especially of Wi-Fi networks used in schools. The Bill is expected to pass the vote in the House.

.Senate Chamber Convenes 06/13/2019 04:00 PM – Jun 13th, 2019). 

The effort to pass the bill is led by David Morrison. David has been working to expose the absurdity of using of Wi-Fi in schools since 2011 when he submitted a lawsuit against Portland Public Schools for forcing involuntary exposure to radiation from powerful Wi-Fi in schools. The Press Release regarding the vote is Following. 

PRESS Here for an article “School Wireless Safety Bill Passes State Senate” published June 14. 

Wi-Fi in schools is also my personal soft spot and I was inspired by David’s lawsuit in 2011 and it pushed me to submit my lawsuit in Israel to remove Wi-Fi from schools and to install wired networks instead, a lawsuit that led to the first limitations on Wi-Fi in schools worldwide. I have submitted a testimony in support of the SB 283, Press Here to read the Testimony Submission of Dafna Tachover from We Are The Evidence to the Oregon’s Senate Health Committee in support of SB 283.

Recently, the Oregon Education Association – the union that represents 44,000 teachers across in  published a report about the crisis of out of control behavior of students. Oregon KGW8 followed with an article: Classrooms in Crisis: Verbal, physical, sometimes violent outbursts plaguing Oregon classroomsThose of us who know the scientific evidence on the adverse effects of wireless have no doubt that the Wi-Fi in the classes and cell towers in/near schools are a major contributor to this problem if not the main cause. 

An  excellent article was published by the Epoch Times about the the adverse health effects of Wi-Fi in Schools  Wi-Fi in Schools: Experimenting With The Next Generation. 

The Press Release of David Morrison:

Today, June 13, 2019, the Oregon State Senate, in a unanimous vote, passed SB 283, which directs the Oregon Health Authority to review independently-funded scientific studies of the health effects of exposure to microwave radiation, particularly exposure that results from use of wireless network technologies in schools. The bill also directs the Oregon Department of Education to develop recommendations to schools in this state for practices and alternative technologies that reduce students’ exposure to microwave radiation that Oregon Health Authority report identifies as harmful.

The bill is expected to also pass in the House, following compelling testimony from the Chair of the Health Committee, Sen. Laurie Monnes-Anderson. Monnes-Anderson has championed this issue for many years while facing ridicule and disrespect from other legislators.

The issue has come to the fore as reports of cancer clusters in schools near cell towers and using wireless microwave technology, as faculty and students increasingly report being stricken with microwave sickness in schools, at alarming rates.

It will be interesting to see how Portland handles the imminent threat of 5G, as more and more constituents become educated about EMF radiation and its chilling effects.

In July of 2011 a parent of a child in Portland Public Schools sued the school board for forcing involuntary exposure to radiation from powerful wifi routers in schools. Willamette Week, a small local paper mocked the concerned parent in at least two print articles. Article 1; Article 2

Why The Issue of Wi-Fi in Schools is Important

The use of Wi-Fi in schools is outrageous – we have many thousands of studies proving the harms of wireless radiation and about 150 studies proving the harms of Wi-Fi and/or the Wi-Fi frequency and we know that children are particularly sensitive to this radiation. Unfortunately we not only have the scientific evidence but also the human evidence in the form of many children who have become sick from the Wi-Fi. Nevertheless, not only we are not using basic precautionary principles in regard to the use of Wi-Fi in schools but instead schools have become the most saturated environment in terms of exposure to wireless and Wi-Fi.

This is even more unacceptable considering the Federal Government $30 million NTP study showed that wireless radiation is causing cancer and BREAKS THE DNA. In fact, the first study that showed that this radiation can break the DNA in the brain (1995) was done on the 2.45 GHz frequency used for Wi-Fi.

Moreover, we are forcing this radiation on children even though, most schools insurance policy do not ensure for wireless radiation health effects and specifically exclude the coverage. Further,  although Wi-Fi was classified in 2011 as a 2B Carcinogen (possible carcinogen) by the World Health Organizations and although in some states including Oregon generally possible/potential carcinogens are not allowed to be used in schools. Nevertheless Wi-Fi is forced on the children. 

KEEP WORKING, CHANGE IS HAPPENING

Written by: Martine Vriens, Director of International Legal Affairs for We Are The Evidence

On 30 January, 2019, an Italian Court in the city of Monza, Italy ruled that the Acoustic Neuroma brain tumor of an airport employee was caused by exposure to the radiation from a cell phone he used for over 10 years for his work. The court determined that the tumor has permanently incapacitated him, and ruled it to be an occupational disease. PRESS HERE for the Court’s Decision.

This is the fourth case in which the courts in Italy determined that an Acoustic Neuroma type brain tumor was caused by a cell phone, and the fifth court to make such ruling as in the first case the court decision was appealed and later confirmed by Italy’s Supreme Court. A Summary of the four cases is in the bottom of this article. 

The importance of the decision is not only that it’s another Italian Court decision that establishes the link between brain tumors and exposure to Radio-Frequency/Microwave Radiation that is emitted from cell phones, but also by recognizing that if the exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR) was necessary for the purposes of work, the Acoustic Neuroma tumor may be considered an Occupational Disease.

Acoustic Neuroma, also known as Vestibular Schwannoma is a tumor which develops on the main nerve leading from the inner ear to the brain. This nerve influences balance and hearing, and pressure from an acoustic neuroma can cause hearing loss, ringing in the ear, and unsteadiness. Occasionally, it can interfere with brain functioning. It is a schwannoma type of tumor which means it develops on the Schwann cells covering the nerve.

 

It is important to mention that in the National Toxicology Program study of the US Federal government, the tumors that were found to be caused by exposure to cell phones’ radiation are schwannoma type tumors.tumor

The Case

From 1994 to 2010, an airport employee was exposed at his work to high levels of Radio-Frequency and Microwave radiation from a variety of antennas and high-frequency equipment: altitude signal repeaters, weather radars, satellite antennas, and airplane equipment.

In addition, for the purpose of the coordination of tasks which were part of his job in the office, he had to use a lot of Electromagnetic frequencies and radiation emitting devices such as mobile phones, two PCs that were always on, and signal repeaters (GSM and DECT).

Several times the employee and his colleagues reported to the employer that the levels of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and radiation were high and requested that the EMFs and radiation be measured, but they were ignored.

The employee used a Siemens DECT phone, a Nokia and later a Samsung cell phone for more than four hours a day, with phone sessions of up to 45 minutes consecutively and on the left side of his head. In 2010, he was diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma.

In 2011, the employee was declared to be permanently unfit for work and his disability was determined to be 68%. In 2014, he applied to INAIL (the Italian Center for Occupational Diseases) asking that his tumor be recognized as an Occupational Disease. The employee claimed that there is a casual link between his exposure to radiation in his work and the acoustic neuroma tumor he suffered, and hence his disease should be recognized as an occupational disease.

The CTU, a collaboration of experts and technical advisers assigned to evaluate the case, conducted research into the disease and its risk factors. In reducing the criteria for the causal link assessment, the CTU stated that the worker had been exposed to high-frequency EMR for a considerable number of hours per day for over 10 years.

The CTU concluded that the development of the left auditory nerve neuroma is related to his work. They based their determination on the duration of exposure, the type of devices he used, the type of pathology, and the review of the literature. They determined that the evidence is sufficient for a causal link, even in the absence of clear conclusive scientific evidence.

The CTU also refereed to a similar decision by the Court of Brescia, in which several studies between 2005 and 2009 were quoted. In three of the studies that were quoted, the risk of Neuroma had increased considerably, while according to another study the risk was considered to be low but present.

The CTU concluded that the tumor caused a reduction in the employee’s psycho and physical integrity.

Summary of Previous Italian Court Decisions

First Decision: Brescia Court. December 10, 2009, affirmed by Italy’s Supreme Court on October 12, 2012

The Supreme Court of Italy has affirmed a ruling that granted worker’s compensation to a businessman who developed a tumor after using a cell phone for 12 years. Marcolini, a financial manager at an industrial plant in Brescia in northern Italy, used cell and cordless phones for five-to-six hours a day for 12 years. He was diagnosed as having a benign tumor on the trigeminal nerve, which controls facial muscles and sensations. The court ignored industry funded studies and declared them to be biased and preferred Prof. Lennart Hardel’s expert opinion.

Second Decision: Ivrea Court. March 30, 2017

The Court of Ivrea recognized a causal link between inappropriate use of a mobile phone and a brain tumor. Roberto Romeo, 57, used his mobile for three to four hours of each working day for 15 years. He was diagnosed in 2010. His Acoustic Nerve had to be removed.” A medical expert estimated the damage to Romeo at 23 per cent of his bodily function, prompting the judge to make a compensation award of 500 euros per month to be paid by INAIL, a national insurance program covering workplace accidents. Newsweek mistakenly reported this case as the first decision while it was already the second. 

Third Decision: Florence Court: April 2017

The court ordered Inail (National Institute for Accident Insurance at Work) to compensate a salesperson who developed Acoustic Neuroma. A worker used the phone for 2-3 hours a day for 10 years. The experts opinion was that there is a high probability of connection between cell phone use and malignant tumors. The Court of Florence recognized the connection between the use of the cell phone and the onset of an acute nerve disease.

A report by the European Parliament titled: 5G Deployment – State of Play in Europe, USA and Asia, published in April 2019, addresses  health concerns. 

The report states: 

“Significant concern is emerging over the possible impact on health and safety arising from potentially much higher exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation arising from 5G. Increased exposure may result not only from the use of much higher frequencies in 5G but also from the potential for the aggregation of different signals, their dynamic nature, and the complex interference effects that may result, especially in dense urban areas.

The 5G radio emission fields are quite different to those of previous generations because of their complex beamformed transmissions in both directions – from base station to handset and for the return. Although fields are highly focused by beams, they vary rapidly with time and movement and so are unpredictable, as the signal levels and patterns interact as a closed loop system. This has yet to be mapped reliably for real situations, outside the laboratory.

While the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) issues guidelines for limiting exposure to electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields (EMF), and EU member states are subject to Council Recommendation 1999/519/EC which follows ICNIRP guidelines, the problem is that currently it is not possible to accurately simulate or measure 5G emissions in the real world.”

This report is joined by other positive developments in Europe in regard to 5G including the announcement of the City of Brussels that it halts 5G deployment due to health concerns.  In Germany, the advocacy orgaanization Diagnose Funk was able to get over 54,000 signatures to its petition against 5G, exceeding the quorum required to force a hearing in Parliament.

In 2014, I wrote a sentiment “When Priests commit suicide” a year after the death of my German friend, pastor and Electro–Sensitivity advocate, Carsten Häublein. Carsten committed suicide by jumping into a freezing cold river, because he could no longer tolerate the pain of the “fire” 4G.  

 

I have posted this sentiment on Valentine’s day every year since on a day “love” is being celebrated, as his death is a reminder of the unloving nature of our society. 5 years have passed and his memory and the memory of the many others who committed suicide since because of becoming sick from wireless, have been with me every day of my work. This year I decided to add some comments. The comments are following the sentiment.

 

 

The Sentiment From 2014:

When Priests Commit Suicide – In the Loving Memory of Carsten Häublein

A year ago, on February 14th, a day dedicated to love, I got a heartbreaking message which reflects most the unloving nature of our society. I was informed that my friend, Carsten Häublein, a German priest who suffered from EHS for 10 years, could no longer take the pain of the ‘Fire’ 4G LTE, which burned inside his head, and he committed suicide. 

 

My sadness was profound and on that same day I wrote a post but I did not publish it. His death was too overwhelming and I needed more time to digest it and understand what it meant for me, what impact should it have on my life and what his death says about the world and society when priests commit suicide.

 

Carsten first contacted me 10 months before he committed suicide and we kept in touch and had long conversations, he even spoke Hebrew. He worked tirelessly to help hundreds of people who suffer from EHS while trying to survive himself and living in inhumane conditions in his car in the woods.

 

 

In one of our calls I tried to convince him to give an interview and he refused. He explained that he gave interviews in the past and as a result he and others who tried to fight local cell phone antennas were persecuted “the way the Jews were persecuted by the Nazis”. No German would have said these words lightly, especially not to a Jew, and living with EHS for 4 years, I agree that the comparison is inevitable and no Jew would have said it lightly either.

 

His exact day of death is unknown, sometime between 11th to the 14th of February, 2013.  He committed suicide by jumping into a freezing river. His body was found a few days later. He sat by the river for a few days prior to his death, and one day a person asked him if everything was OK. Why, when for 10 years he said that no, nothing is OK, didn’t anyone do something? Why now, when millions are screaming including children, is anyone still doing nothing?

 

This is what I wrote the day I heard about Carsten’s suicide: 

 

“I have been sitting all day staring at the computer, saying and thinking again and again “not Carsten…No”. I did not know what to do with myself. I feel sorrow that I cannot contain. It is evening now, and I just cannot smile, I cannot be consoled. I am deeply sad about Carsten but it hurts even more to comprehend the kind of world and society I live in. We learned nothing from the Holocaust. 

 

When mothers who are trying to protect their children are arrested and indicted for refusing the installation of wireless meters in their homes, instead of those who manufacture and distribute them, something is very wrong in society. When judges, doctors, engineers are forced to leave their homes, families and careers and become refugees in the woods in the freezing winter, something is very wrong in society. 

 

But when priests commit suicide, an act which is contradictory to the core of their being, then it means hope is completely lost and with it our most basic values as a humane society. 

 

Today I lost any shred of hope I had in humanity, because when priests commit suicide and cannot see light amidst all the darkness, there is no hope”. 

 

My last conversation with Carsten was difficult. I felt he were at the end of his rope. Following the conversation I contacted another German friend, but apparently no one could help, even in the woods he could not escape the tormenting 4G anymore.

 

Carsten asked that the poem Von guten Mächten wunderbar geborgen“ or “By Loving Forces Silently Surrounded”, be read in his funeral. The poem was written by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German pastor and a writer whofought the Nazis to protect the Jews and just like Carsten, his life is a testament of “commitment to justice on behalf of those who face implacable evil”. He was executed just before the war ended. Following is a partial translation of the poem[i]

 

By gracious powers so wonderfully sheltered,
and confidently waiting, come what may,
we know that God is with us night and morning,
and never fails to greet us each new day.

 

Yet is this heart by its old foe tormented,
still evil days bring burdens hard to bear;
O give our frightened souls the sure salvation
for which, O Lord, you taught us to prepare.

 

And when this cup you give is filled to brimming,
with bitter sorrow, hard to understand,
we take it thankfully and without trembling,
out of so good and so beloved a hand.

 

Yet when again in this same world you give us
the joy we had, the brightness of your sun,
we shall remember all the days we lived through,
and our whole life shall then be yours alone.

 

Anna Frank wrote that “Despite it all, I believe that people are really good at heart”. I don’t. The end of Anna Frank’s story just as Carsten’s, is all the proof I need.

 

I signed my post last year with the word “Shattered”. I still am, every day, thinking about Carsten and the society that murdered him.

5 Years Later – Valentine’s Day 2019

 

Five years passed since I wrote this post and six since Carsten died (murdered really). Unfortunately, our society is still unloving. Many more adults and at least one child have committed suicide since as a result of becoming sick with Electro-Sensitivity / Microwave Sickness. 

 

Suffering: Jenny Fry was found dead after apparently developing an allergy to Wi-FiIn 2015  Jenny Fry, a 15 year old from the UK could no longer tolerate the pain from the Wi-Fi in her school and the cruel indifference of the school personnel to her suffering and hung herself from a tree. 

 

I cannot imagine the horror of her mother when she found her. I learned that a social worker who was sent to the home told Jenny’s mother that Jenny has died because she (the mother) had put the unreasonable idea into Jenny’s head that Wi-Fi was harming her.   

In the past few years I have been contacted by so many on the verge of committing suicide including many teenagers. This is not surprising – the lives of those who have become sick from wireless are a living hell.

 

Those of us who are already sick from the wireless are experiencing the tormenting pain of wireless day and night. Escaping wireless and the pain is becoming increasingly impossible; we have to endure the ignorance of medical professionals; to endure the disregard of policy makers; to endure the refusal to accommodate our needs because of the cognitive dissonance of an addicted society.

 

For many the breaking point is the rejection of family members and friends. When people develop cancer they get sympathy and are cared for by their loved ones who go into great length to accommodate them. Sadly, many of us who have developed Microwave Sickness are not receiving such sympathy and care despite the debilitating nature of the condition and situation. Microwave Sickness is too uncomfortable for those around us. No wonder so many of us have contemplated committing suicide.

 

With 5G being deployed, the situation is becoming even more dire. There is really no home or even a place safe for us to be and sleep. The number of desperate calls I get from adults and children is rapidly growing. This drawing by a 10 y/o child whose life has been affected by his mother’s sickness from wireless, is a chilling but accurate portray of this living hell and desperation. 

 

Carsten death and the suffering of so many and especially of children, have been the wind beneath the wings of my work. Working in the ‘belly of the beast”, my personal pain from the wireless has been easier to handle than the pain from seeing  the unloving nature of humans.

 

When I was told that it will take many dead bodies to awaken society, I didn’t want to believe it. I wanted to believe that humans are smarter, that we learned from the past. Unfortunately, it seems that I was wrong. I ask myself how many more dead bodies will ​it ​take with wireless. ​
 
 
I am even more shattered today, 6 years later.

This drawing is disturbing, but sadly it is an accurate perception of the wireless world by a 10 y/o child from Illinois. His mother developed Microwave Sickness / Electro-Sensitvity, from exposure to wireless radiation.  She has been suffering disabling symptoms from exposure to wireless devices and infrastructure. Her suffering has been having a tremendous impact on him and on the family’s life. Unfortunately, he has been experiencing how societal addiction makes people, like those in his own family, reluctant to see what is so clearly in front of their eyes – the harms of wireless technology. Not only are the social implications featured in his drawing, but the devastating health effects and people’s complete disregard to the suffering of others.

I asked this brilliant child to describe to me the drawing and he wrote:  

“My mom and me drew this while Daddy was at work. We are dealing with all this radiation, just trying to go anywhere is painful for my mom. It makes me feel so sad that no one knows! No one knows about what is happening to them! We tell our family and friends but many of them don’t believe us. We’ve been to a lot of doctors and the only thing that works is when she gets away from the radiation. My wish for the world is that people wake up to what is being done to them, and realize that this is a known carcinogen.”

 

 

On February 6, for the first time health effects of 5G and wireless were mentioned in Senate Commerce Committee Meeting on 5G. The Senate Commerce Committee is the Committee entrusted in overseeing the FCC. 

I was there with less than a handful of us on July 14, 2016 when the FCC announced 5G. The same week we started our efforts to educate Congress about 5G and wireless health effects. Whenever a 5G meeting/hearing was held, we were trying to get the members of the Committee to ask even just one question about the health effects. Yesterday, February 6, two and a half years later, it finally happened.

I got a call an advocates who attended the Senate Commerce Committee meeting and he was excited to tell me that Senator Blumenthal made a comment about the health effects.

In the hearing titled Winning the Race to 5G and the Next Era of Technology Innovation in the United States Senator Blumenthal  asked, “are there any health implications? Are there any safety implications?” to the millions of the small cells that are likely to be located “close to homes, schools work places and closer and closer to the ground” . 

He mentioned  the letter that he had sent to the FCC in December, 2018 asking Commissioner Carr from the FCC to cite him the research on which the FCC relied upon to guarantee the public that 5G is safe. While we still do not have a copy of the FCC’s response, apparently according to Blumenthal, Commissioner Carr “Essentially has failed to do so” and said he referred him to the FDA. In regard to the FDA website Blumenthal said: “if you go to the FDA website, pretty unsatisfactory, there is basically a cursory and superficial citations” and mocked the statement on its website saying that the FDA encourages industry to conduct research and it was on cell phones not 5G. Then he said: “I believe the American people deserve to know what the health effects are.”

Blumenthal also said: “We are flying blind here on health and safety”. That is though inaccurate.  We know that the harms of non-thermal levels of RF/Microwave radiation are proven. We have more than ample scientific evidence and unfortunately also the Human Evidence which is in epidemic scale as the 5G Appeal states. We are flying blind but, to a definite greater disaster.

Since the FCC and the FDA didn’t provide answers he followed the FDA recommendation and asked industry – panelists “how much money has the industry provided for independent research on biological effects? Shouldn’t we scientifically ascertain the health effects? ” One of the panelists replied, “we rely on the expert agencies. There are no industry backed studies underway.  This new infrastructure is designed to be low powered, low interference.”    

So the FDA relies on industry and industry relies on the FDA…how long will this mockery of the American people will continue?

Senator Wicker (R-MISS) who is the new Chairman of the Committee (replaced Sen. Thune (R-SD)) summarized the hearing by mentioning the need to protect privacy but in response to Blumenthal’s comments on health Wicker read a quote from the National Cancer Institute, saying the research shows there is no consistent evidence that non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation increases cancer risk. I wonder why he didn’t mention the Government’s own study, the NTP study the biggest and most expensive study on this issue which found CLEAR EVIDENCE of cancer and DNA damage. 

Interestingly, the FCC did not appear in front of the Committee only industry was there. It is unusual. Considering the bad media the FCC has been getting following the House Commerce Committee accusing the FCC of Colluding with Industry and considering the municipalities lawsuit could it be that the Senate Commerce Committee (or industry which likely was involved in arranging this hearing) thought the FCC presence will contaminate the efforts to push 5G? 

Now we will have to see who will be the next member of the Committee who will do the right thing and speak the truth

A Full Transcript of Blumenthal’s Comeents:

Mr. Blumenthal:
Mr. Chairman, thank you for having this hearing. We’ve heard from a lot of witnesses, from you today and others previousy, about the very important potential of 5G technology. It promises to bring us a new era of connectivity with Internet speeds as much as five times faster than what we have today, with much lower latency. And that’s all a good thing, but 5G, as you well know, also uses higher frequency waves that don’t travel as far and will rely on a network of hundreds of thousands — potentially millions — of small cell sites. And the question then is: are there any health implications, any public safety implications, to those additional sites that are likely to be located close to homes, schools, workplaces, and closer and closer to the ground? Correct?
 
Mr. Gillen:
Correct, Senator. Yes.
 
Mr. Blumenthal:
So, in December of 2018, I sent a letter to FCC Commissioner Carr asking him to cite for me recent scientific studies demonstrating the safety of this technology: what research has been done, where has it been published and compiled. He has, (inaudible), failed to do so and just echoed the general statements of the FDA — which shares regulatory responsibility for cell phones with the FCC. If you go to the FDA website, pretty unsatisfactory. There basically is a cursory and superficial citation to existing scientific data saying, quote, “The FDA has urged the cell phone industry to take a number of steps, including support additional research on possible biological effects of radiofrequency fields for the type of signal emitted by cell phone.” I believe that Americans deserve to know what the health effects are, not to prejudge what scientific studies may show, and they deserve also a commitment to do the research on the outstanding question. So my question for… for you, particularly, Mr. Gillen, and Mr. Berry: how much money has the industry committed to supporting additional independent research? I stress independent research. Is that independent research ongoing? Has any been completed? Where can consumers look for it? And we’re talking about research on the biological effects of this new technology.
 
Mr. Gillen:
Thank you, Senator. And I thank you for your focus on the issue. Safety is paramount. And as you alluded to, we rely on the expert agencies, rely on the findings of the FDA and others, as to the requirements to keep all of us safe. There are no industry-backed studies, to my knowledge right now. I’m happy to visit with you as to what opportunities you think there needs to be more studies. And we’re always for more science. We also rely on what the scientists tell us.
 
Mr. Blumenthal:
So essentially, the answer to my question how much money: zero.
 
Mr. Gillen:
I can certainly follow up with you, Senator. To my knowledge there’s no active studies being backed by industry today.
 
Mr. Blumenthal:
Anybody else know of industry commitments to back research, fund it, support it, to ascertain, scientifically, the health effects?
 
Mr. Berry:
Senator, I’m not aware either. But I do know that with small cells, especially, you’re going to have lower power levels. And of course, as from a carrier perspective you want to be able to manage interference so that that interference is the lowest interference possible. So I would… I would think that some of those studies, or some of that information, could be utilized in… in looking at the health consequences. But no, I’m not aware of any….
 
Mr. Blumenthal:
So there really is no research ongoing. We’re kind of flying blind here — so far as health and safety is concerned. Thank you, Mr. Chairman.

KEEP WORKING, CHANGE IS HAPPENING.

In December 2018, the Spanish High Court ratified a court decision determining that the adverse health effects suffered by an employee of the Spanish telecom company Endesa, were caused by his exposure to electromagnetic fields and radiation in his workplace.  

Joaquín Sanz, a senior technician, is the first worker to obtain a judgment in Spain that classifies Electro-Sensitivity as an occupational injury.

The judge determined that the symptoms experienced by Mr. Sanz are a result of central nervous system and limbic system dysfunction caused by his exposure to the high and low electromagnetic frequencies to which he was exposed in his workplace, including exposure to Wi-Fi and cell towers.   

The court determined that Mr. Sanz’s symptoms, which began in 2009, including headaches, tinnitus, muscle pain, asthenia and lack of concentration, were caused by and manifested when he was exposed to electromagnetic fields and radiation in his workplace. The court recognized that his sickness was caused by levels of exposures which are considered “safe”. Clearly they are not.

This is not the first court decision in Spain that recognized Electro-Sensitivity/Microwave Sickness, but it is the first that recognizes it as an occupational injury. 

In 2016, the Superior Court of Justice of Madrid determined that telecommunications engineer Ricardo de Francisco was suffering from Electro-Sensitivity and as a result unable to work. The other electrosensitivity case recognized by the Spanish Courts involved a Professor at the University of Murcia.
