Community members all over the city of Los Angeles are not notified about 5G cell towers being installed in front of their homes. No testing has been done to ensure the safety of radio frequency radiation emitted from this equipment. There is no government oversight to ensure that radio frequency radiation levels stay below current FCC guidelines, which only protect us from heating and burning. Yet thousands of peer-reviewed scientific studies have shown biological effects like DNA, cell and sperm damage at levels well below current FCC guidelines. Future plans include putting these transmitters on poles every 5-10 homes. A solution to understand is that this technology can be achieved and made possible through fiber optics hard wired connections to our homes for much faster and more reliable services. We are fellow community members spreading the word, to stop and change this. Especially in light of the President signing the 'Secure 5G and Beyond Act of 2020" on March 23rd!!

 

Why does this need to stop? 

- In 2018 the $30 million US government National Toxicology Program (NTP) found:  ’CLEAR EVIDENCE of carcinogenic activity (the highest evidence) for wireless, radio frequency radiation, whole body exposure in rats. Link:

- International Association of Fire Fighters and LA Fire Fighters Union: ‘Cell towers cause brain cancer, lymphoma, leukemia, double DNA strand breaks, neurological illness, increased blood pressure and disorients our fire fighters so  they can’t do their job’ - ‘NO cell towers on or near our stations! We can communicate just fine with Sheriffs, LAPD and emergency services. Link:

- 2011 Studies conducted on populations living near cell towers concluded ‘even a year of operation of a powerful base transmitting station for mobile communication reportedly resulted in a dramatic increase of cancer incidence among population living nearby’. Link:

Decrease in property value: according to a Realtor Magazine article, survey shows 94% of homebuyers will NOT purchase a home near a cell transmitter due to health effects! Link:

PLEASE take the time to learn about this, take a stand, sign the petition and stop these mega corporations from doing what they want in our communities!! Reaching our emergency services has NEVER been an issue, internet downloads have never been an issue. Even in light of our current situation, with everyone working/schooling from home, internet access and speeds have not changed.
