According to a 2014 Wall Street Journal article, 1 in 10 U.S. cell/grid towers violated RF radiation rules and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) didn’t have enough employees to monitor or correct this.
More from RF Safe:
1 – According to 6 engineers who examined more than 5,000 sites, “one in 10 sites violated the rules”. In 2014, that was approx. 30,000.
2 – Cell tower carriers were not being held accountable for the health risk caused by unsafe cell phone tower installation.
3 – The FCC said it lacked resources to monitor each antenna.
4 – Since 1996, The FCC had issued 2 citations for safety violations.
5 – One engineer demonstrated to a WSJ journalist how common it was to find cell phone towers in violation of federal safety standards.
6 – An FCC guideline written after the rules were adopted noted studies showing “relatively low levels” of RF radiation can cause:
- certain changes in the immune system
- neurological effects
- behavioral effects
- other health issues, including cancer.
7 – In 2011, The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) began studying this after the World Health Organization categorized RF radiation as a possible carcinogen.
8 – Many insurers will not insure against health risk from cell phone radiation.
Since 2014 countless more cell towers and antennas have been installed next to American homes, hospitals, schools, etc. Some Americans are sick of and apparently sick from this (see 1, 2, 3, 4). For many years firefighter unions have been opposed to cell towers and antennas being installed at their stations due to health and safety risks. Unfortunately, the FCC has been a corrupt and “captured agency for decades. During the Trump administration, lawsuits have been filed against them for NOT protecting the public from unsafe levels of radiation as well as 5G on Earth (see 1, 2, 3,
