The East Idaho News reported on Nov 14, 2019, that the National Park Service is seeking public comment on a proposal to install about 500 indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi networks and cell towers throughout Yellowstone National Park’s developed areas for park visitors and employees. An SF Chronicle article Oct 20, 2019 notes this is part of a push to “modernize” the nations campgrounds. The article states, “The heart of the proposal is to hand some campground operations over to concessionaires and modernize them. The Sierra Club opposes that and said that concessionaires could transform national parks into “profit centers.” Sequoia National Park is also getting its first cell tower, however, not everyone is pleased.

Firefighters are the first responders in emergencies. Every community depends upon their strength, bravery and clear quick thinking to protect lives and property. What happened when first responder cell towers were placed on fire stations to facilitate communications between police and medical personnel? Within a week of installation many firefighters developed unusual symptoms of headaches, fatigue, insomnia, memory loss, confusion, nausea and weakness. After a time, firefighters in stations with adjacent cell towers were found to have forgotten CPR or became lost responding to a

The first reported injury of 5G in a news report comes from Switzerland, where 5G has been launched in 102 locations. The weekly French-language Swiss magazine L’Illustré interviewed people living in Geneva after the 5G rollout with alarming details of illness. In their article, With 5G, We Feel Like Guinea Pigs, posted July 18, 2019, they report neighbors met to discuss their many common symptoms and many unanswered questions.

What is the diagnosis, doctor? The onset of strange symptoms, in a strange country, in the middle of the night led the author to more than a diagnosis of microwave illness. After suffering months of unexplained nausea, insomnia, ringing in the ears, fatigue and body aches she consulted with a German doctor to help her figure out what was happening. In her journey to find her own health she learned about the secrecy of government agencies and how evidence of health effects are suppressed. Her diary reads like Anne Frank. Chilling and a warning to us all. The last part of the book is devoted to valuable DYI measures to protect your home and family. In the age of wireless this book is a necessary read. Her story is reminiscent of other peoples journey’s into microwave illness and chronic electrohypersensitivity. All EMFd Up (Electromagnetic Fields): My Journey Through Wireless Radiation Poisoning and How You Can Protect Yourself. (2019) by Anne Mills is a good read.

On June 27, 2019 Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced SB 2012, ‘‘Restoring Local Control Over Public Infrastructure Act of 2019’’, a senate companion bill to Congresswoman Anna Eshoo’s HR530, which would similarly repeal FCC rules that limit state and local government control over telecom infrastructure. The bill is cosponsored by Charles Schumer (N.Y.), Michael Bennet (Colo.), Kamala D. Harris (Calif.), Ron Wyden (Ore.), Ben Cardin (Md.) and Richard Blumenthal (Conn.). The bill is supported by the U.S. Conference of Mayors, National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors, American Public Power Association, Communications Workers of America, National Association of Counties, League of California Cities and American Public Works Association.

The City of Berkeley won another round, but not the last, against Big Telecom in the 5 year battle to provide simple safety warnings at cell phone point of purchase, informing consumers of potential harms from carrying these devices against the body. It is the same FCC mandated warning buried deep in the manufacturers cell phone manual. On July 1, 2019, after many appeals, the Ninth Circuit Federal Appeals Court upheld Berkeley’s 2015 cell phone “right to know” law, requiring cell phone retailers to post or hand out a warning to consumers at the point of sale. The original 2015 lawsuit has yet to be heard, however, as industry continues to work the appeals court.

The First Major Medical Conference in U.S. for Healthcare Professionals
The first major medical scientific conference for health care providers discussing the health effects of electromagnetic radiation will be held in a retreat center in Scotts Valley, California September 6-8, 2019. Experts from around the world will focus on different aspects of wireless radiofrequency radiation (RFR) from a variety of sources, including cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi Routers. The mechanisms of harm will be presented as well as basic science and epidemiologic studies related to adverse health effects of RFR, including cancer, reproductive harm, neurologic harm and electrosensitivity. This will be particularly useful to physicians and other health professionals who have not yet had the opportunity to hear directly from experts who have witnessed the health impacts of wireless technology and treated patients for these conditions. Speakers will present their perspectives based on scientific evidence.
The conference was originally initiated and inspired by William J. Rea MD (1935-2018), a pioneer in the evaluation and treatment of electrosensitivity. After Dr. Rea’s passing in August of 2018, a commitment was made to produce the conference in partnership with the leading practitioners and organizations that have been working globally to provide credible research, education and awareness in the area of exposure to cell phone and other wireless radiation.

The 5G technology rollout, like a runaway train, is being pushed onto US cities and counties who are loosing even more local control over small cell tower placement with higher untested frequencies. This is happening internationally as well. There continues to be no consideration for health effects, environmental effects, radiation monitoring or privacy concerns. The new U.S. FCC 5G Fast Plan forces cities to use only an administrative permit with multiple antennas being approved at once and only 10 feet from homes. Local control is being crushed. Despite shiny promises of faster internet and seamless instantaneous connection to support so called “Smart Cities”, there are glaring downsides not discussed by industry. While the past U.S. President vocally supported the rollout of 5G and then 6G, offering for a brief time to nationalize the 5G network, some experts think 5G may be unrealistic in the near future. In addition, no 5G safety testing has been done. People around the United States first mobilized on May 15, 2019 to protest this overreach of the FCC, now regarded as another corporate captured agency. After the first successful International 5G protest January 25, 2020, the STOP 5G International Organization planned the next Worldwide STOP 5G Protest on April 25, 2020. Now with the rapid approval and deployment of 5G in space, attention has shifted to protest 5G in Space with actions starting in March 2021.
