For decades, U.S. agencies have followed a policy that no threshold of radiation exposure is risk-free. Decades of research supports this on both ionizing and non-ionizing (cell phone and wireless WiFi) radiation.
Insurance companies have caught on and it has affected the way they do business.
But who cares, right? The “Race for 5G” and the implementation of “Smart Cities” in the U.S. is basically allowing the Telecom Industry (aka Big Wireless) to install harmful radiation emitting 4G and 5G small cell towers and other wireless infrastructure both above ground and below in residential yards, public rights of ways, etc.
Many elected officials and government employees seem to be sold on doing this because they keep introducing, pushing and passing federal legislation that prevents municipalities from stopping installation. This is happening despite widespread scientific opposition, municipal government and citizen protest, lawsuits threatened and filed by various organizations, and health effects (on pets and people) already being reported where it’s been installed.
Activist Post reported about wireless infrastructure being installed underground almost 3 years ago.
Awareness continues to increase surrounding the health dangers of Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) emanating from our daily gadgets, as well as from the rise of the Smart Grid.
So what happens when your entire city becomes one giant WiFi signal?
Telecom giant Virgin Media has been given the green light to begin doing just that. Coverage will be enabled by “discreet street furniture” and the “UK’s first Smart Pavement.”
Gregor McNeil, Managing Director of Consumer at Virgin Media said: “Not only is this the first time we’ve built metropolitan WiFi directly from our street cabinets, it is also the UK’s first deployment of a WiFi connected pavement. It is literally public WiFi under your feet. We want to build more networks like this across the UK and encourage more forward thinking councils just like Chesham to get in touch.” (additional emphasis added)
Even if you don’t believe having a permanent WiFi signal radiating across the city under your feet is a danger to your health, another aspect of pervasive WiFi may be of concern: privacy and surveillance.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is not a health or environmental agency. Their job is to regulate the Telecom Industry (Big Wireless) and protect the public which they hadn’t been doing anyway long before the ridiculous “Race for 5G”and the marketing of “Smart Cities.” It’s only getting worse and The EPA now seems to be encouraging this as well.
If this concerns you, it’s time to get involved.
