Wireless Industry Confesses: ‘No Studies Show 5G Is Safe’

Written by humansarefree.com

Last week, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal grilled wireless industry representatives, who admitted the industry has done ZERO health & safety studies on 5G technology. Meanwhile, dozens of independent studies indicates that 5G is a risk to all biological life.

During today’s Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee hearing on the future of 5G wireless technology and their impact on the American people and economy, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) raised concerns with the lack of any scientific research and data on the technology’s potential health risks.

Blumenthal blasted the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) — government agencies jointly-responsible for ensuring that cellphone technologies are safe to use — for failing to conduct any research into the safety of 5G technology, and instead, engaging in bureaucratic finger-pointing and deferring to industry.

No Studies Show 5g Is Safe

In December 2018, Blumenthal and U.S. Representative Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) sent a letter to FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr seeking answers regarding potential health risks posed by new 5G wireless technology.

At today’s hearing, Blumenthal criticized Carr for failing to provide answers, and instead, just echoing, “the general statements of the FDA, which shares regulatory responsibility for cell phones with the FCC.”  Blumenthal also decried the FDA’s statements as “pretty unsatisfactory.”  A PDF of Carr’s complete response is available here.

During an exchange with wireless industry representatives, Blumenthal asked them whether they have supported research on the safety of 5G technology and potential links between radiofrequency and cancer, and the industry representatives conceded they have not.

Blumenthal stated:

“If you go to the FDA website, there basically is a cursory and superficial citation to existing scientific data saying ‘The FDA has urged the cell phone industry to take a number of steps, including support additional research on possible biological effects of radio frequency fields for the type of signals emitted by cell phones.’

“I believe that Americans deserve to know what the health effects are, not to pre-judge what scientific studies may show, and they also deserve a commitment to do the research on outstanding questions.”

“So my question for you: How much money has the industry committed to supporting additional independent research — I stress independent — research? Is that independent research ongoing? Has any been completed? Where can consumers look for it? And we’re talking about research on the biological effects of this new technology.”

At the end of the exchange, Blumenthal concluded,

“So there really is no research ongoing. We’re kind of flying blind here, as far as health and safety is concerned.”

In November 2018, the National Toxicology Program released the final results of the longest and most expensive study to date on cellphones and cancer. Those studies found “some evidence” of a link to cancer, at least in male rats. However, the study only focused on the risks associated with 2G and 3G cell phones.

The latest 5G wireless technology relies on the deployment of many more new antennas and transmitters that are clustered lower to the ground and closer to homes and schools. There has been even more limited research with respect to the health ramifications of 5G technology, and the FCC has thus far failed to adequately explain how they have determined 5G is safe.

    I must admit I find it hard to believe if there are known effects from 5G that ‘is a risk to all biological life’, why are people promoting the use of technology that will kill themselves as well as everyone else? Are we to assume 5G is being used to kill ALL life on Earth? Is that credible?

      It feels like the (elon musk) spaceX starlink satellite network currently in progress at a rate of 60 per fortnight is something that should be scrutinised.

      Andy Rowlands – you have witnessed the authoritarian dissemination of false information in relation to AGW. You understand UN Agenda 21/30
      Historically, feudal overlords established their position by means of aggression, deception and planning.
      How can anyone think that the requirements for authoritarianism has ever changed.

          Many thanks Brian – will take a look.
          A quick search bought many documents !
          The concern is oversight and transparency? once mandated who is held to account for any fallout. As with the digital ID that gates foundation is pushing and the fallibility that all technology falls prey to i.e. personal security, identity theft, unknown future abuses and so forth which is by no means a closed book as fraud and identity theft are ongoing & at the same pace as technological advancement. Why should trust be placed into these corporate technocracies who fail continually to circumvent said frauds and theft – they demonstrate incompetence at the highest level by their inability to resolve these basic technical issues like chip and pin fraud.
          What recourse would a digitally tattoo’d human have with these biologically embedded systems advocates? What is the full extent of this technology and how does it integrate with 5G. What is the extent of the control group testing and where has the control group comparison been made for any of the previous modes of EM communications.
          As Dr Shiva pointed out in his video – it is a top down process and we should do as we are told – for our own good apparently!

    There is a little bit of misunderstanding with regards 5G. The US version of 5G is based in a higher frequency range, as we are all being told. The Huawei version of 5G was to be based on the same frequency range that 4G is, making it easier and cheaper to deploy while admittedly, not delivering the data bandwidth that the US version was going to. It was this difference of frequencies used that was in part behind the US push against Huawei in Europe since it would probably not integrate with the untested US system. Not implying that 4G was necessarily well tested either.
