Last November, the city of Appleton, WI passed a 5G Resolution entitled “Small Cell Wireless Equipment,” which acknowledges constituent concerns about 5G. According to Wisconsin Safe Tech, an environmental group behind the passage of the bill, 5G has not been proven safe for humans or the environment.
In addition, Appleton Mayor Timothy Hanna and the city urge the state and federal governments to initiate independent, scientifically reliable studies relating to the health effects of small cells and 5G technology.
The resolution also calls for the development of installation guidelines for 5G that will protect the health and welfare of the public.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., of the Children’s Health Defense, was cited by the Wisconsin Safe Tech group as saying, “Many people assume that 5G stands for 5000 MHz, the number they see on their internet connection. This 5G is something entirely different, and could have almost unimaginably devastating impacts on our health and environment.”
Wisconsin Safe Tech claims there are thousands of independent studies published on the health effects of wireless radiation relating to many maladies, both severe and minor. These health effects include but are not limited to cancer in children and adults, DNA damage, infertility and miscarriages, headaches, memory, and cognitive impairment, anxiety/depression, fatigue and nausea.
Two of these examinations were completed in 2018; the first was the National Toxicology Program Study, which claimed “clear evidence” of cancer, heart and DNA damage, plus fetal effects from cell phone radiation. The second was the Ramazzini Institute Study on cell tower radiation, which tested cell tower radiation at levels below the NTP research and lower than FCC requirements; the analysis found increases in schwannomas (i.e., tumors) of the heart in male rats and low birth weights.
