Firefighters in California counties from San Francisco to Sacramento to Los Angeles, have reported severe neurological damage, headaches, insomnia, memory problems and confusion after 5G towers were installed outside their stations. When tested, they were found to have brain abnormalities and measurable neurological deficits and firefighters have now filed to be exempt from the California law that would enforce the installment of 5G towers near their places of work.
When their fire stations were relocated away from 5G transmitters, firefighters claimed their symptoms stopped. More shocking (no pun intended) was that the radiation levels measured were just 1-2/1,000th the FCC’s allowable “safe” limits for non-ionizing radiation. In other words, the FCC considers radiation levels 1,000 times higher than those which debilitated strapping firemen to be safe!
Like the current generation of cellphone technology, 5G has not been adequately tested to determine its impact on health but following the lead of former FCC chairman Tom Wheeler, who eschewed safety testing in favor of economic growth, the industry in the US is moving quickly to establish primacy.
Because the millimeter wave frequencies used in 5G do not travel far, towers will need to be built every 1,000 feet (305 m), necessitating “millions and millions” of towers, according to an exultant Wheeler, to blanket every corner of the Earth in a toxic electrosmog that will enable driverless cars and the Internet of Things.
It’s worth re-telling here the little-known story of John Patterson, who was a senior telecommunications officer for Telstra in Australia, responsible for the deployment of thousands of towers. When he discovered that these towers are capable of emitting microwave radiation 50,000 times the legal limit, he wrote a report to his seniors – and was promptly fired. In order to get the word out, he says he took his friend’s tank and destroyed 8 tower sites and served 20 months in jail. He says he doesn’t regret it because, “People need to know my story.”
