Robert O. Becker MD once said that, “The greatest polluting element in the Earth’s environment is the proliferation of electromagnetic fields.” Becker was an orthopedic surgeon, a researcher in electrophysiology, electromedicine and one of the most influential figures in the area of anti-EMF activism.
Becker challenged the position of the US Government since the mid-20th century, that non-ionizing radiation poses no health risks. Cellphones and WiFi were released onto the market with little to no testing to enable the US to have a jump on this technology. It created a lot of wealth for a lot of people but the costs to our health may not be known for another 20 years.
This story is being repeated by the Trump Administration with the fifth generation of wireless technology (“5G”), which requires that an area be completely saturated with harmful millimeter wave radiation, in order to implement driverless cars and the whole Internet of Things.
