California 5G cell tower may cause cancer in school kids — ‘Small cell’ antenna pops up in New Bern with plenty of warning signs

Editor’s note: In the summer of 2018, this newspaper featured a nine-part series on the potential adverse health effects of 5G.  This article by Michael Snyder describes problems in California, which many attribute to dramatic increases in wireless radiation.

This ‘small cell’ was recently installed on a utility pole along Neuse Blvd. in New Bern.

CALIFORNIA – Could this be one of the reasons why cancer rates are steadily rising all over the world?

The radiation that we are constantly being bombarded with by the cell phone industry is one of the greatest environmental scandals in history, and yet the environmental movement is almost completely silent about this crisis.

As you will see below, scientific study after scientific study has linked cell phone use to cancer, and yet nothing is being done.

Instead, the big cell phone corporations are about to roll out their ultra-powerful 5G network nationwide, and that is just going to make this health crisis much worse.

Perhaps you are skeptical that cell phone radiation is a major threat? Well, if your kid developed a life-threatening case of cancer your attitude would probably change quite quickly.

In northern California, parents are fighting like mad to have a cell phone tower removed after a fourth child at a single elementary school was diagnosed with cancer.

The towers are spread throughout the community, but it’s this particular one that parents say needs to go.

“We had a doctor tell us that it’s 100 percent environmental, the kind of tumor that he has,” said Monica Ferrulli.

So far the school district is not budging. Perhaps it has something to do with the $2,000 a month that they are getting from the phone company.

One day, future generations are going to look back in horror at how self-destructive we were!  All the science tells us that cell phone radiation is dangerous, and yet we just can’t help ourselves.

Researchers at the National Toxicology Program, a federal inter-agency group under the National Institutes of Health, tested 3,000 rats and mice of both sexes for two years—the largest investigation of radio frequency radiation and cancer in rodents ever undertaken in the U.S.

European investigators at the Ramazzini Institute in Italy were similarly ambitious; in their recent study they investigated radio frequency effects in nearly 2,500 rats from the fetal stage until death.

Also noteworthy is that the studies evaluated radiation exposures in different ways. The National Toxicology Program looked at “near-field” exposures, which approximate how people are dosed while using cell phones.

Ramazzini researchers looked at “far-field” exposures, which approximate the wireless RF radiation that bombards us from sources all around us, including wireless devices such as tablet and laptop computers. Yet they generated comparable results:

Male rats in both studies (but not mice or female animals) developed schwannomas of the heart at statistically higher rates than control animals that were not exposed.

And a few years ago, a “study of studies” that was headed up by Igor Yakymenko caused quite a commotion in the scientific community:

Yakymenko’s meta-study — basically a study of hundreds of other studies — reveals many findings of previous researchers into how radio frequency from your phone can damage DNA.

That damage can add up over time and cause a variety of health problems, like cancer, headaches, fatigue and even skin problems.

For example, using your phone for just 20 minutes a day for five years increased the risk for one type of brain tumor threefold, and using the phone an hour a day for four years upped the risk of some tumors three to five times, Yakymenko said.

And other studies have come up with similar results.

In 2011, the International Agency for Research on Cancer officially classified radio frequency radiation as a “possible carcinogen.” This came a year after the international Interphone study found that people who used a cell phone for 10 years were 40 percent more likely to develop brain tumors.

The risk was 400 percent higher among those who started using phones before the age of 20.

Decade-long cell phone users were also more likely to develop parotid gland tumors and 300 percent more likely to develop acoustic nerve tumors.

Are you starting to get the picture?

The science is exceedingly clear, but we just keep on ignoring it.

And now the new 5G network is being rolled out. This network is going to be much faster and much more powerful than current networks.

But in order for the 5G network to function properly, the towers must be much, much closer together than our current 4G towers. So over the coming years the big cell phone companies are going to put up hundreds of thousands of little towers all over the country, and when they are done there will literally be one on just about every single street corner in heavily populated areas.

If you live in a major city, the truth is that there won’t be anywhere you will be able to go to escape the radiation.

And already cancer rates are completely and totally out of control.  If you live in the United States, there is a 1 in 3 chance that you will get cancer during your lifetime. If you are a man, the odds are closer to 1 in 2.

And what are those rates going to look like for the young people of today after they have been constantly exposed to cell phone radiation for their entire lives?

According to one recent poll by the Pew Research Center, 45 percent of all American teens admit that they are on the Internet “almost constantly.”

Jean Twenge, who writes for The Atlantic magazine, calls this the most crucial question of our age:

“Have smartphones destroyed a generation?”

In the end, the cancer industry is just going to keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger. Fast-approaching 5G has the potential to foment a health crisis unlike anything that we have ever witnessed in all of U.S. history, but according to federal law local communities are banned from considering health concerns when deciding whether or not to put up cell towers.

The ban is outlined in a small section of the Telecommunications Act, based on science from 1996 — back when we were still talking on cellphones that looked like bricks.

If cities do consider health, cell companies can sue them. The big phone companies spend enormous amounts of money to make sure that things go their way in Washington.

So people will continue to get sick and die, and most people will never even understand why it is happening.
