What Small Cell Tower Legislation and Sh*t Have In Common

My former husband had a saying:
"Just because ten-thousand flies eat sh*t doesn't mean you should."
I was reminded of this recently when someone mentioned that other states (besides Michigan) were passing small cell tower infrastructure legislation.

Just because other states have passed similar forms of cookie-cutter legislation that benefits telecommunications companies at the expense of the citizens of the state, doesn't mean we should

But "we" did. 

And by "expense" I mean not only monetarily, but we also pay with our health because wireless technology has repeatedly been proven harmful to humans and the environment.  

The law reads:
SAY WHAT?!?  

The People of Michigan did NOT enact Public Acts 365 and 366 (formerly SB 637 and 894).

The people of Michigan, for the most part, didn't even KNOW about SB 637 and 894 thanks to our public media that apparently didn't think a law that strips the citizens of their rights to health, safety, and welfare was newsworthy enough for headlines.  Or that stripping local authorities of revenue and control of public right of way space was newsworthy enough either.

However, it was included at the bottom of an article about a rapist and child custody case.  Not exactly where most people would look for an announcement of groundbreaking legislation with extensive ramifications.

The people of Michigan did not enact these small cell tower laws.  The 2018 Michigan House of Representatives, Senators and Governor enacted them, and thereby gave telecom companies the right to install their equipment just about anywhere in public right of ways without our knowledge or consent.  

AND with NO safety testing.
"This is about radiation, and people need to understand that..."
"Scientists state that wireless radiation is a human carcinogen. Governments have no proof of safety and the peer reviewed published literature has substantial evidence of harm."
So just because other states also passed similar legislation, and just because other states are not looking at a repeal to these horrible laws, doesn't mean we shouldn't.

To protect the health, safety, and welfare of the people of Michigan, we must repeal these laws and place a moratorium on further installations of small cell towers until safe levels of pulsed modulated non-ionizing wireless radiation have been established for long-term exposure at non-thermal levels by qualified experts with absolutely NO conflicts of interest.  

Which means NOT the FCC (Federal Communications Commission).

I love this quote...

“In a herd of deer, we need some super-sensitive ones. They are the ones that will hear that teeniest little crack, or smell the one or two molecules of scent from the mountain lion that’s stalking them. Their job is to use their hyper-sensitivity to alert the whole group.” 
~ Peter Levine


I found it in this excellent article by Patricia Burke: EHS, ADA, FCC and 5G — Time for a Reboot 

Too bad humanity is taking so dang long to realize that the same applies to us. We have sensitive ones in regards to exposure to non-ionizing wireless radiation at non-thermal levels. And still, for the most part, we are being ignored...

Fake Science



"Yes, what you can do is that you can create fake science that essentially imagines that the agent that you depend on, has no health effects whatsoever. If you look back in time, there was what I would call it heat war in the past, there wasn’t only a Cold War, there was a heat war. What this means is that the nations of the East, the Eastern Bloc, said that this radiation is dangerous, and they adopted standards at thousand times lower than the United States.

"By contrast, in the United States the mentality was there's so much money to be made, we will have very high standards. In other words, there’s no effect beyond what happens in the microwave oven. And this will allow us to deploy unlimited amounts of systems."

~ Dr. Paul Heroux

5G: Increasing Possibilities Exponentially




US Senator Blumenthal Raises Concerns on 5G Wireless Technology Health Risks at United States Senate Hearing

"We're kind of... flying blind here, as far as health and safety is concerned."

Actually... not "blind" when you take into consideration the studies that have been done using millimeter waves and wireless microwave radio frequency radiation:


And that is just a small fraction of studies done showing biological effects from wireless microwave radio frequency radiation.  There are literally thousands...

So we're not kind of flying blind here.

What IS happening is the Federal Communications Commission and the Food and Drug Administration, those who are supposed to protect public health and public safety, are blatantly disregarding the evidence of harm.  

There's no question that the "possibility" of harm exists with wireless radiofrequency radiation.  5G infrastructure with perhaps hundreds of thousands of new small cell towers installed just about everywhere, including in front of our homes, increases that "possibility" exponentially.

5G Wireless: A Dangerous ‘Experiment on Humanity’



Bravo to RT for doing this important 5G story!
"Is there a catch?"
"There is. Just a small one. It might kill you... This is an experiment on humanity and that this should be called a crime under international law... Science shows that this causes DNA damage, cancer, among other things..."
Dr. Sharon Goldberg:
"Wireless radiation has biological effects. Period. This is no longer a subject for debate when you look at PubMed and the peer-review literature. These effects are seen in all life forms; plants, animals, insects, microbes. In humans we have clear evidence of cancer now. There is no question. We have evidence of DNA damage, cardiomyopathy, which is the precursor of congestive heart failure, neuropsychiatric effects..."

Michele Greenstein:
"There's going to be a cell tower in front of every few houses..."

Dr. David Carpenter:
"There's been no safety testing of 5G.  The reason I think that it's dangerous is that there isn't any specific information to 5G, but we know that radiofrequency radiation of 3G and 4G are associated with a whole variety of different human health effects.  Everyone is going to be exposed to radiofrequency radiation more continuously and at higher intensities, and that's going to cause more human disease."

Michele Greenstein:
"And the fact is the government is completely not jumping on the ball because of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 which says that no state or local government can regulate the placement of any cell towers regardless of environmental effects.  That has really laid the groundwork for this toxic infrastructure...  And the FCC, which has no health expertise itself, is completely captured by the wireless industry..."
"You know who hasn't been fooled?  The insurance companies.  They are not selling any product liability policies that cover cell phone radiation..." 

Video description:
"Scientists, environmental groups, doctors and citizens around the world are appealing to all governments to halt telecommunications companies’ deployment of 5G (fifth generation) wireless networks, which they call 'an experiment on humanity and the environment that is defined as a crime under international law.' Research has shown that wireless radiation can cause DNA damage, neuropsychiatric effects and other health problems. RT America’s Michele Greenstein joins Rick Sanchez to discuss."

David Carpenter, MD
Director, Institute for Health and the Environment
University of Albany, NY

Professor David Carpenter, MD is a world renowned public health expert, including the issue of electromagnetic fields and wireless radiation. He is currently the Director of the Institute for Health and Environment, in the University of Albany, a collaborating center for the World Health Organization. He is also a Professor of Environmental Health Sciences within the School of Public Health at the University at Albany.

Previously, he was Chairman of the Neurobiology Department of Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute at the Defense Nuclear Agency in Washington, DC. He was also the Director of Wadsworth Center for Laboratories and Research of the New York State Department of Health, the third largest public health laboratory in the US after NIH and CDC.

He holds several research positions including at the National Institutes of Mental Health. Dr. Carpenter’s research initially was basic neurobiology, and more recently has primarily been the study of human disease resulting from exposure to environmental contaminants including non-ionizing radiation.

Dr Carpenter is a Harvard trained physician and researcher. He is author of more than 350 scientific papers; has edited five books; and he is the Editor in Chief of two scientific journals.


Prof. Carpenter’s work on Non-Ionizing radiation started when he arrived in Albany in 1980 as the Director of the Wadsworth Laboratories of the New York State Department of Health, he was given the responsibility of administering a program to determine whether there were adverse human health effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs), initiated because of concern of hazards from high voltage powerlines. A 5 million dollar research program was begun, and when finished in 1987 the program concluded that while there were effects of EMFs on many organ systems, a particular concern was an increased incidence of leukemia in children living in home with elevated magnetic fields. After that time Dr. Carpenter became for the spokesperson for New York State on issues related to EMFs. He has continued to evaluate research in this area, and has edited two books and written several review articles on the subject. He testified before the President’s Cancer Panel in 2009 on human health effects of both power line and radiofrequency EMFs from a variety of sources, particularly from cell phones. He is the Co-Editor of the Bioinitiative Report (www.bioinitiative.org), published first in 2007 and revised in 2012. This is a comprehensive review of the effects of EMFs.

UN Staff Member: 5G Is War on Humanity



Claire Edwards, UN staff member, addresses UN Secretary General:
Mr. Secretary General, UN staff have repeatedly been told that they are the most important resource of this organization.  Since December 2015, the staff here at the Vienna International Center have been exposed to off-the-scale electromagnetic radiation (EMR) from WiFi and mobile phone boosters installed on very low ceilings throughout the buildings.  
Current public exposure levels are at least one quintillion (1,000,000,000,000,000,000) - that's eighteen zeros - one quintillion times above natural background radiation, according to Professor Olle Johansson of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.  
The highly dangerous biological effects of EMFs have been documented by thousands of studies since 1932, indicating that we may be facing a global health catastrophe orders of magnitude worse than those caused by tobacco and cigarettes.  
Mr. Secretary General, on the basis of the precautionary principle I urge you to have these EMF-emitting devices removed immediately from these buildings, and to call a halt to any roll-out of 5G at UN duty stations, because 5G is designed to deliver concentrated and focused electromagnetic radiation in excess of 100 times current levels, in the same way as do directed energy weapons.  
In line with the UN guiding principles on business and human rights - to protect, respect, and remedy - 5G technologies must be subjected to an independent health and safety assessment before they are launched anywhere in the world.  
There is currently an international appeal signed by 237 EMF scientists from 41 nations, urging the UN and particularly the WHO to exert strong leadership in fostering the development of more protective EMF guidelines, encouraging precautionary measures and educating the public about the considerable health risks, particularly the risks to children and fetal development.  
Mr. Secretary General, I think we have a unique opportunity here at the UN office at Vienna.  Since our medical records are digitized, you have the choice on the possibility of releasing data on a closed population exposed to off-the-scale levels of electromagnetic radiation in a metal-walled building, which exacerbates the situation, to establish if there have already been abnormal health consequences for the UN staff here, in the last 28 months.  I urge you to do so, and stop any roll-out of 5G immediately.  
Thank you.

"Cell Phones Cause Cancer" - Jimmy Gonzalez, Attorney (1972 - 2014)



"Cell phones cause cancer. That's what numerous doctors and scientists from all around the world have been warning us about for years... I for one happen to KNOW that cell phones DO cause cancer..."

Jimmy Gonzalez developed cancers and tumors in three places related to his cell phone use:
  • His left hand where he held his cell phone during use
  • The left side of his head where he placed his cell phone when in use
  • His lower chest where he stored his cell phone when not in use

From the video description:
Jimmy Gonzalez's testimony to the Pembroke Pines Commission resulted in the passing of a Resolution to raise awareness on the health risks of cell phone radiation. 
Learn more about the state of science on cell phone radiation at The Environmental Health Trust. Several cities and countries are taking action to raise awareness about how people can protect themselves.  
Please see the full list at Database Of Worldwide Policies On Cell Phones, Wireless And Health (EHTrust.org).  Jimmy Gonzalez' words will save lives.

But only if we listen and act upon the information Jimmy and others have shared. Information is useless unless it's used.

History shows us that sometimes government agencies are not the first to act when it comes to protecting the health and safety of the public. So if you are waiting for some kind of "official" announcement, well, please listen to Jimmy again.

Regarding teens and adolescents using cell phones...

Malignant brain tumors are the most common cause of cancer deaths in adolescents and young adults aged 15-39, and are the most common cancer occurring in 15-19 year-olds.  
Fifteen to 19 year-olds were born between 1998/1999 and 2002/2003.  In 2002, a little over 60% of Americans used a cellphone (Pew Research Center). That means today's adolescents more than likely grew up with parents that used a cellphone and perhaps became early users themselves. 

Currently 100% of people between the ages of 18 and 29 in the U.S. own a cellphone (see Pew Research Center link above).  And now malignant brain tumors are the most common cause of cancer deaths in that age group. 

In 2012 I bought my first cell phone. Less than a year later I had to stop putting it to my ear because of constant burning pain I felt when I did. Perhaps I'm one of the "lucky" ones, to feel the pain.  Though I don't think luck had anything to do with it, and I'm not the only one that feels electromagnetic fields.  There are many others.  We are the evidence that wireless technology can and does cause harm.  Jimmy tried to tell us this before he died.

My wish for 2019:

It will be the year of massive awareness of wireless radiation health effects,  along with massive mitigation, correction, retraction, repayment, reorganization, and elimination regarding wireless technology and high electromagnetic fields (EMFs), (according to Building Biologist standards), which includes but is not limited to: "smart" meters, transmitting utility meters, 5G small cell towers, mega cell towers, WiFi in schools, and "dirty electricity". 

Safe levels of wireless radiation need to be determined and strictly followed and enforced in public areas.  For the health of it! For our children, and our children's children's children. 

It is time to stop this EMF freight-train and put 'er in reverse... 




...and begin reducing our exposure.
