There’s a lot of information and misinformation being reported about health risks from exposure to 5G technology. So if you can only remember one thing about 5G and health risks, this would be it:
The telecom industry has provided NO scientific evidence that 5G is safe.
If you can remember two things:
So, parents horrified about 5G towers near their kids’ schools is appropriate. In fact, parents horrified about ANY cell towers (or antennas) near their kids’ schools is appropriate because health experts including the American Academy of Pediatrics have warned that children are more affected by exposure to wireless radiation than adults.
Residents in the suburban Los Angeles community of Lakewood say they are “horrified” by the thought of 5G network tower installations. At a community meeting, residents spoke out about 5G health concerns, saying that 5G is not proven safe.
“I’m horrified, to be honest with you,” Lakewood resident Christina Rich said via CBSLA. “I don’t want a cell tower anywhere near our house. They don’t belong in the neighborhoods. They haven’t been proven to be safe.”
Christina was far from alone in her concern over the controversial 5G network.
Monica Draghichi, another concerned parent, said she’s worried that about the density of the towers around schools.
“I’m concerned about the distance to my kids, to the schools in our community and the overall effects and lack of regulation around it,” she said.
Lakewood isn’t the first California community to be up in arms over 5G technology. In fact, parents at a Ripon, California elementary school forced Sprint to remove a single 5G tower they claimed was causing an uptick in childhood cancer. Sprint’s concession to remove the tower served as one of the larger victories over 5G in the United States. In Rhode Island, telecommunication companies are installing 5G towers without public consent.
