RADIATION: Microwave alert

| December 2, 2020 1:00 AM

I have been researching the biological effects of microwave radiation and spoke against the rollout of 5G in the Dalton Gardens Planning & Zoning Meeting. Did you know that the “Wireless Industry admits that no safety testing has been conducted for 5G technology?” I encourage you to check this out online.

If approved, very soon “small cell towers” will be placed along our neighborhood streets and roadways, approximately every 1,000 feet, and dangerously within 20 feet of our homes. The term “small cell” only applies to the size, not the output of ionizing microwave radiation, which in most cases is equal to or even more than some of larger “macro towers.”

The risks are exponential for all of us, especially our children. Some of the early effects are flu-like symptoms, difficulty breathing, heart problems, sleep issues, learning difficulties, fatigue, with so many more to list.

The Coeur d’Alene City Council has already approved this to happen, while Dalton City Council is deciding in the next few weeks how they will proceed. For a brief 6-minute video on the topic of 5G, look up “MD Exposes Dangers of 5G Tech, Condemns Small Cell Tower Legislation.” Please get involved in your local governments and let your voice be heard.
