Devra Davis’s fantastic rebuttal to Board’s NY Times latest “hit piece” on 5g. 

The Miseducation of America on 5G: The New York Times Gets It Spectacularly Wrong 

July  22nd, 2019 | Devra Davis | The Medium 
“When William J. Broad, a Pulitzer-Prize winning New York Times science writer, strangely mangles information on the dangers of 5G, this plays right into the hands of those determined to advance this never-tested technology without serious examination of its long-term impact on human health and the environment.
The recent headline of the NYTimes trumpeted 5G as the “health hazard that isn’t.” Not so fast. A close examination of claims in that article indicates that it is time for a reset on the march to the latest wireless technology as the consequences could not be more monumental.
Ten Corrections to William J. Broad’s
“The 5G Health Hazard That Isn’t” New York Times July 16, 2019
Issued by Devra Davis, PhD, MPH, President, Theodora Scarato, MSW, Executive Director, Environmental Health Trust.
Also, here is EHT’s detailed critique of Broad.”

Superb overview of the converging streams of political and vested interests re 5G and the ever expanding public awareness and pushback. Included are Trump’s policies around Huawei/China, surveillance capitalism, and many other elements all tied together in a clear narrative that is well worth reading and sharing widely. 

What is 5G and why do we care?

July 18th, 2019 | Timothy Schoechle 
“The term ‘5G’ denotes the 5th generation of wireless cellular telecom technology that is still
being defined. Over the past four decades, the wireless industry has introduced a new generation
of their cellular phone technology roughly every 10 years. Today’s cellular networks support
2G, 3G, and 4G. 4G, though not yet fully built out, was given the nickname, LTE for “long term
evolution”. 5G does not exist yet, except partially in a few trials, but plans are for it to be
somewhat different insofar as it will not replace 4G, but will add to it. 5G will be a short-range
companion to 4G LTE that uses new, much higher previously unused frequency bands that are
capable of faster data transfer and shortened latency delay in response time for realtime
applications. The longer-range 4G LTE will continue to provide voice service and will manage
links to 5G devices.”
Unraveling the rather complex relationship and spin around 4g and 5g. 

Is 5G the Problem? Or Is ‘Antenna Densification’?  

July 22nd, 2019 | Camilla Rees | Electromagnetic Health Blog
Some believe the rush to hype 5G even before 5G technologies are fully developed or standardized is a trojan horse, that effectively brings 4G closer to homes without the difficulty and cost of obtaining permissions required for cell towers, while at the same time staking claim to muni ‘real estate’ for 5G later on if and when the 5G network is built out in a given location.

“For now, the sheer number of radiating antennas being installed in close proximity to homes should be alarming to us all. So, too, should the fact that there exists far superior and much safer communications technology that is not being deployed (Fiber To The Premises, or FTTP), as described last year in National Institute for Science, Law and Public Policy’s ‘Re-Inventing Wires: The Future of Landlines and Networks’.

And, finally, of great concern is the fact that the U.S. government has known for well over a half a century that Radio Frequency Radiation emitted by wireless antennas and devices is linked to many diseases, including cancer, and including from their own research. Yet it has enabled the growth of the wireless industry to its present multi-trillion dollar size, and is now facilitating 4G/5G antenna densification, greatly escalating biological and health risks to humans, animals and Nature, while, importantly, eliminating local government control.”
