There was testimony given in front of the Michigan House Energy Policy Committee in October by Dr. Sharon Goldberg who said "Wireless radiation has biological effects. Period. This is no longer a subject for debate when you look at PubMed and the peer-review literature. These effects are seen in all life forms; plants, animals, insects, microbes. In humans we have clear evidence of cancer now; there is no question." This video for us geeks has gone viral, and I have seen it rebroadcasted in several newscasts. For instance, see this: https://youtu.be/H_f9gpg4t6c.
But really, is 5G really bad for our health to the extent Dr. Goldberg says it is? Wouldn't this be the biggest cover-up of the century if what she says is true? I began to wonder this to myself, as I've watched this recent level of hysteria around this issue.
Here's What I Found Out:
First off, there have been cellular health risks concerns expressed for decades. So I think by now we should have plenty of evidence one way or the other. The Internet is full of claims that we have a significant risk to our health from cellular radiation. That YouTube video above sites a bunch of websites, but when I caroused them, I saw no conclusive evidence presented. So I decided to look for more opinions and came upon this article: 5g Wireless Rekindles Fight Over Cellular Health- Rsks.
As opposed to these other websites, this article is very credible and conclusively sites this statement from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention: "There is no scientific evidence that provides a definite answer to that question."
The article continues, “The FCC, the FDA, the World Health Organization, the American Cancer Society and numerous other international and US organizations and health experts continue to say that the scientific evidence shows no known health risk to humans due to the RF energy emitted by antennas or cell phones,” said the CTIA, the wireless industry’s biggest policy and lobbying group.
“The evidence includes analysis of official federal brain tumor statistics showing that since the introduction of cell phones in the mid-1980s, the rate of brain tumors in the United States has decreased."
So obviously we all must weight what the evidence is and make a decision whether or not we should allow 5G to come into our communities. I for one am in complete support of 5G based on what I've read and learned in my brief investigation.
Oh, and by the way, after this testimony given by Dr. Goldberg, 15 Michigan legislators voted to SUPPORT the bills allowing the building of 5G Small Cell Towers in that state. What's this tell you? They must have all come to the same conclusion as I have.
