The purpose of this group is to discuss what we can do to protect our families and communities against the dangers of 5G Technology.
The wireless radiation emitted from the mass deployment of this 5G technology (known as "small cell antennas") will have adverse effects on health, safety, privacy, and property rights. In addition, the preemption of local government authority and the public's right to litigate will hurt New Jerseyans. The 5G transmitters being installed emit microwaves and essentially function as a cell tower operating at 30GHz to 300GHz. These transmitters are being installed in the rights-of-way in close proximity to people's bedrooms, and children's schools. The radiation exposure from these transmitters is continuous, cannot be turned off, and increases the dose emitted by cell phone towers.
None of the maximum exposure limits purported to be safe are biologically based. They are based on thermal dosimetry, a process that measures the effects of radiation on the temperature of the water inside a "head phantom" (dummy head). Using thermal dosimetry, any level of RF radiation not capable of raising the temperature of a thermometer in the head phantom is deemed safe for humans because it cannot ionize water molecules. This "conclusion", however, is based on thermal heating and deliberately misses what happens non-thermally or sub-thermally. This is something scientists today can show and prove can damage cells and DNA leading to cancer and other pathologies far below the 1986 and 1993 standards.
With respect to privacy rights, the boost 5G will give to facilitating more intrusions into civil liberties is astronomical. The collection and processing of Big Data through existing and new devices connected to the Internet-of-Things will allow telecoms ever more access to private information.
