Cell phone towers dot the landscape every so many hundred or thousand feet in most places, especially along interstate highways and on higher or hill-top locations. Because there is such a demand for cell phone service—more cell phones now than the total global population—more and more technology means of providing service have to be implemented. However, cell towers cost around $150,000 each to erect. Consequently, cell providers want less expensive ‘infrastructure’ to be able to provide faster and ‘better’ service, therefore, the introduction of “5G”, which no one knows what that “generation of service” will do to humans, wildlife and the environment.
One of the more resolute EMR/RF/cell phone radiation researchers is Lloyd Burrell of Royan Poitou Charentes, France, in the European Union. Lloyd does an exceptional job of researching, providing a newsletter and also interviewing other researchers on his weekly Internet show, which can be accessed at ElectricSense and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recently Lloyd produced an extremely informative document about “Cell Tower Radiation & Cancer, The Facts” wherein he listed 17 References and/or citations from scientific journals pointing out connections between cell towers and cancer. I’ve taken the liberty to reproduce those References below, as they point to apparent health hazards that are ‘overlooked’ in favor of implementing cell phone and tech services.
If the research below indicates problems, especially cancer, what can we expect from 5G? No one really knows!
