A CBS news story from Sacramento about the installation of 5G small cell towers referenced complaints reported by the Sacramento firefighters.
Firefighters in Sacramento California reported neurological damage including memory problems and confusion after new generation 5G cell towers were installed outside their fire station.
The firefighters claim the symptoms stopped when they relocated to stations without equipment nearby.
News of the adverse health effects suffered by firefighters came days after a major university study into 5G wireless technology declared the rollout of wireless technology to be a “massive health experiment” that has not been properly tested by authorities.
Quote: Los Angeles County is installing cell towers on 86 fire stations near you. The radiation generated by these seven-story-high eye sores can cause debilitating health effects. Studies suggest “nearby families could get sick too,” yet the board of supervisors is erecting these toxic towers without public hearings or required studies. Fire Captain Lee Currier, Los Angeles County Firefighters Local 1014.”
In an unprecedented move as a result of concerned activists, community members, fire department unions, police department unions in Los Angeles County, and the City of Los Angeles, California roll out of hundreds of massive cell towers on fire departments sites, which would have placed the local firefighters at risk AND blanketed all of Los Angeles County with microwave RF radiation has been halted “for the time being.”
From the Firefighters Local website: “We’re not talking about driving down the freeway past a cell tower that looks like a fake tree. We’re talking about having antennas practically on top of our heads day in and day out, irradiating us with radio frequency (RF) radiation every second we’re in the stations.”
Paid for with federal tax monies, the Los Angeles RICS (Regional Interoperable Communications System) cell-tower program did not take into consideration the many health and safety risks of those who would be subjected to close range microwave irradiation.
Citing a large body of research, more than 240 scientists who have published peer-reviewed research on the biologic and health effects of nonionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF) signed the International EMF Scientist Appeal, which calls for stronger exposure limits. (Excerpted from Scientific American article, “We have no reason to believe 5G is safe” https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/we-have-no-reason-to-believe-5g-is-safe/
Per the article, the appeal makes the following assertions: “Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans.
Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plant and animal life.”
First responders, our warriors, deserve better treatment from us than to have their health destroyed in the so-called “name of progress.” But then, as always, you be the judge of that!
