STAMFORD REJECTS 5G TOWER PROPOSAL AFTER PRESENTATION BY SCIENCE, POLICY AND LAW EXPERTS ON HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENT IMPACTS

November 29, 2023

5G

In a huge win for wireless safety in Connecticut, the Stamford Board of Representatives rejected a proposal that would have proliferated 5G/4G “small” cell antennas into neighborhoods.

Here is the story.

An industry-friendly proposal was poised to allow wireless antennas in front of homes and schools. EHT experts, along with colleagues with expertise in law, policy, and health, were invited to present to the Board of Representatives Land Use Committee. On October 18th, the expert panel shared critical information on the health and environmental impacts of wireless proliferation. 

We also presented on the need for federal accountability and protective policy.  

That evening, after hours of deliberation, the committee voted against the proposal that would proliferate 5G and “small” cell antennas.

A few weeks later, the full Board joined the Committee and voted “no” on the proposal. 

EHT was grateful for the opportunity to share critical health and safety information. We know land-use decisions made in Stamford on the 5G buildout will reverberate statewide and far beyond.

The fact is that a growing body of scientific evidence links cellular radio-frequency radiation to a broad range of harmful effects, including cancer, memory damage, DNA/genetic damage, and impacts on brain development, the endocrine system, thyroid function, and reproduction. Studies have found radio-frequency radiation to be harmful to animals and trees. Government limits are outdated and do not protect humans or wildlife. 

Please share the video of expert testimony and these news stories with your decision-makers.

The European Union prioritises economics over health in the rollout of radiofrequency technologies

The fifth generation of radiofrequency communication, 5G, is currently being rolled out worldwide. Since September 2017, the EU 5G Appeal has been sent six times to the EU, requesting a moratorium on the rollout of 5G. This article reviews the 5G Appeal and the EU’s subsequent replies, including the extensive cover letter sent to the EU in September 2021, requesting stricter guidelines for exposures to radiofrequency radiation (RFR).

5G Expose

Through this Exposé, you will learn from independent scientists and experts about what is known and not known about health risks from 5G and the planned roll-out of millimeter wave technology. This is probably the most under-estimated and most ignored factor affecting human health at the moment.
