The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is supposed to protect Americans by regulating the Telecom Industry. They have a long history of catering to the industry instead. Current FCC Chairman, Ajit Pai, describes this as “not being heavy handed.”
Other government agencies as well as doctors, elected officials, and scientists have taken issue with many of their decisions (see 1, 2, 3, 4). It’s even caused dissension within the agency. Now the City of Boston is also making a stink.
From 5G Crisis:
The City of Boston recently submitted a comment to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) outlining flaws with the agency’s 1996 wireless radiation safety limits. The City urged the Commission to reevaluate and update its limits to reflect how wireless technologies are being used and deployed today.
“Boston believes that the concerns of the public are real and that the Commission has done a disservice to itself, local government, consumers, and even the wireless industry in failing to understand and respond to the broadly shared mistrust of the safety of RF emissions.
The public does not believe that the FCC’s RF exposure standards are safe nor based on science. They cite that the standards were first established by the Commission more than twenty-four year ago. Standards that were established at a time when very few consumers had cell phones, let alone the mini wireless computers that the majority of consumers carry today. They were established in an era of 1 and 2 G deployment, not the 5G and beyond that the nation can expect in the years to come. Early tests and reports focused either on handset emissions in proximity to a user’s head or macro cell tower deployment. None of these tests contemplated the street-level deployment we see today as a result of SWFs in the public rights-of-way. And, despite the changes in the number and type of RF devices and the proximity to individuals, the FCC simply reaffirmed its decade old standards in its December 2019 Order.”

The World Health Organization, American Academy of Pediatrics (see 1, 2) and other health experts and scientists have been warning about cell phone and wireless radiation exposure for many years. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also warned about it in 1984. Exposure can lead to increased cancer risk and MUCH MORE. No “safe” level of wireless radiation has even been scientifically determined for children or pregnant women.
