#174 / 5G Wireless Coming Soon
Why is this man smiling? If he had read the "Special Investigation" published in the April 23, 2018, edition of The Nation ("How Big Wireless Made Us Think That Cell Phones Are Safe"), our smiling friend might be looking a bit more concerned.
Mark Hertsgaard and Mark Dowie tell us how "Big Wireless" has conspired to hide the significant dangers of using wireless cell phones. And, they say, the coming "5G rollout" will expose us all to "massively increasing radiation."
Being concerned about the health impacts of wireless radiation and cell phone use is not, as it turns out, just for kooky citizens who testify at multiple meetings of City Councils and Boards of Supervisors.
It is, like, a real thing! Read the article, and you may decide to pay more attention to that thing you're holding up to your ear, and to the ever more extensive deployment of wireless broadcast equipment, which the 5G rollout requires:
Some say there is no problem. Well, maybe not. Dowie and Hertsgaard aren't trying to prove the scientific argument in any definitive way, but their article is convincing, to me, anyway, that we should be applying a little bit more of that "precautionary principle" before we increase the power and coverage of wireless radiation.
