REGARDING the article in the Highway Mail dated 15th June edition about the City stating that “Cell masts not a health risk”, the city is either ignorant, misinformed or deliberately putting out false information.
The following articles are but a fraction of the growing body of scientific evidence about the environmental and health risks of electromagnetic fields and warnings about 5G.
The journalist reports that the municipality states that there are “no proven health risks…. according to the WHO”.
However, the WHO’s recommendation is that the electromagnetic fields produced by mobile phones are classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer as possibly carcinogenic to humans. The WHO is purportedly increasing carcinogenic classification of wireless radiation this year
Experts at Italy’s Ramazzini Institute say radiofrequency (RF) radiation from cell phones should be classified as a “probable” human carcinogen rather than a “possible” carcinogen (see links below).
Furthermore, the city claims to have been briefed by the industry. That’s like asking the tobacco companies view about their product’s link to disease and ignoring the medical evidence. Here are some thoughts and studies on the cell phone companies’ disinformation:
How the Wireless Industry Convinced the Public Cell phones Are Safe and Cherry-Picked Research on Risks.
How Big Wireless Made Us Think That Cell Phones Are Safe: A Special Investigation: The disinformation campaign—and massive radiation increase—behind the 5G rollout.
A new investigation explores how big wireless companies used the same playbook as oil and tobacco to deceive the public and create the appearance of scientific uncertainty while making people think that cell phones are safer than independent science suggests
And here are some of the latest studies that give lie to the city’s contention that there are no proven health risks:
World’s Largest Animal Study On Cell Tower Radiation Confirms Cancer Link
Scientists call on the World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer to re-evaluate the carcinogenicity of cell phone radiation after the Ramazzini Institute and US government studies report finding the same unusual cancers.

Human chain across Segovia to Stop 5G
Everyone is invited to participate. Please forward this to all your media contacts.
On Saturday, June 16, 2018, a human chain will be formed across the city of Segovia, Spain. This event will occur after a day of presentations by scientists from Spain, France, Canada, and the United States. Following this event, on June 17, there will be a day of conversation, round tables, and workshops. https://www.stop5g.electroyquimicosensibles.org/

Brain Tumours Double, Prompt Warning on Cell phones
A recent study revealed a rise in glioblastoma multiforme, an aggressive brain tumour, in England from 1995 to 2015.
Incidence rates more than doubled from 2.4 to 5 per 100,000 people during the study period, an increase the study authors say cannot be fully explained by random chance or improvement in diagnostic techniques and is “most likely” due to cell phones.
Two government-funded studies conducted by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) found “clear evidence” that exposure to cell phone radiation led to heart tumours in male rates, along with “some evidence” that it caused brain tumours in rats 15 newpapers on electromagnetic fields and biology or health https://www.saferemr.com/
We support the DA’s call for the city to conduct an independent study into the health effects of cell towers, their impact on the environment and on property values before any further masts are erected or installed.
