5G Health Concerns -- Cell towers are being placed every 2-10 houses. 2500 in Denver

Scientific American article: ‘We Have No Reason to Believe 5G is Safe’, more than 500 peer-reviewed published studies by scientists and doctors have reported harmful biologic health effects from exposure to earlier versions of RFR, including 4G, 3G, etc. They include cancer, damage to DNA, memory, brain development, sperm/reproduction, synergistic effects, headaches and oxidative stress. Damage extends to plant and animal life.

International scientists, who have published more than 2000 papers and letters on RFR in professional journals, signed an International Appeal calling for Protection from Non-ionizing Electromagnetic Field Exposure.

The FCC has not conducted studies on the biological safety of 5G, but instead, ruled that 5G is safe based on research done on the heating effects of RFR in the 1980s. The FDA approved the FCC’s ruling.

Harvard published article: "Industry has a soup-to-nuts stranglehold on the FCC that extends from its well-placed campaign spending in Congress through its control of the FCC's Congressional oversight committees to its persistent Agency Lobbying"
