Another Congressperson Questions FCC and FDA About 5G Technology Health Impacts. When Will Yours?

By B.N. Frank

In February, Telecom Industry executives told Senator Richard Blumenthal that they had no scientific evidence that 5G is safe, even though there IS scientific evidence that it’s harmful.

Earlier this month, there was a press conference from the White House about forced 5G small cell installation and the U.S. needing to win the controversial “Race for 5G.”  There was no reference to the testimony provided by the Telecom Industry in February.  There was little reference to widespread increasing 5G opposition.  (See 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10).

5G installation is continuing in the U.S. despite all issues identified with it by a growing number of credible sources including a former national security director

Thanks to Environmental Health Trust for reporting about Rep Peter A. DeFazio (D-OR) who is now also asking questions about 5G:

On April 15, Rep. Peter A. DeFazio (D-OR), House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman, wrote a letter to FCC Chairman Pai and acting FDA Commissioner Sharpless inquiring about the status of the government’s research into the potential health effects of radiofrequency (RF) radiation and its relation to the FCC’s guidelines for safe human RF exposure levels, in light of the  Commission push to rollout 5G technology and over 800,000 new antenna installations in the United States.

Rep. DeFazio pointed out that although the Commission sought comment on whether its RF safety guidelines should be reassessed in 2013, no further action has been taken and the guidelines have not been updated since their implementation in 1996.

The letter asks for  details on the health-related studies conducted and what efforts have been taken by the agencies to educate and inform the public about its RF/5G technology research.

From the National Law Review, April 30, 2019

Previously, in 2018, US Senator Blumenthal and U.S. Representative Anna G. Eshoo sent a letter to FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr seeking answers regarding potential health risks posed by new 5G wireless technology. A few months later, at a Senate hearing, Blumenthal criticized Carr for failing to provide answers, and instead sending a statement that just echoes, “the general statements of the FDA, which shares regulatory responsibility for cell phones with the FCC.”  In the February 2019 hearing, Blumenthal decried the FDA’s statements as “pretty unsatisfactory.”

“I believe the American people deserve to know what the health effects are…We are flying blind here on health and safety”.

– Senator Richard Blumenthal

Rep. Peter A. DeFazio’s  letter indicates a growing awareness among policymakers of the health impact of 5G. Coast to coast communities are calling for a halt or to slow down the deployment of 5G and so called “small” cells near homes. Read a list of Cities more protective ordinances here.

The U.S. Day of Action Against 5G is on May 15.  Even if you can’t make it, be sure to contact your state and federal legislators and demand that they represent you and your concerns about 5G.
