David and Goliath battle in Switzerland for stop 5G rollout because of health risks

Update 13-7: Friday the CHANCE5G online platform will be launched. The initiative is funded by the Swiss Telecommunications Industry Association (ASUT) and its members, including telecom companies Sunrise, Swisscom, Cellnex as well as Ericsson and Huawei. They claim that the development of 5G is being held back by 'false conclusions and a lack of knowledge about the technology'.Update 29-2: In Switzerland, municipalities and cantons are battling against providers and the federal government that has auctioned the broadcasting licenses. The municipalities and cantons argue that the adaptive 5G antennas emit at much higher peak power so that they do not...

Doctors in Germany protest against 5G

"We demand prevention strategies to protect the population, further research and a moratorium on the expansion of 5G," says Cornelia Mästle, physician for internal medicine and cardiology from Winterbach."We have more and more patients in our practices who are hypersensitive to electrosmog," says Jörg Schmid, psychiatry and psychotherapy specialist in Stuttgart. The clinical images range from headaches, tinnitus, and concentration problems to cardiac arrhythmias. And even though a direct link between electromagnetic radiation and cancer has not yet been...

EU 5G Appeal – Scientists warn of potential serious health effects of 5G

In an appeal to the European Union, more than 180 scientists and doctors from 36 countries warn about the danger of 5G, which will lead to a massive increase in involuntary exposure to electromagnetic radiation. The scientists urge the EU to follow Resolution 1815 of the Council of Europe, asking for an independent task force to reassess the health effects."We, the undersigned scientists, recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation, 5G, for telecommunication until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry. 5G will substantially increase exposure...

Insurer Swiss Re: electromagnetic radiation highest risk category

One of the largest insurance companies of the world Swiss Reinsurance Company (Swiss Re) classifies electromagnetic radiation into the highest risk class. This category also includes endocrine disrupting chemicals.The text on p. 11 of the report: Anxiety over the potential risks related to electromagnetic fields (EMF) has risen. Studies are difficult to conduct, since time trend studies are inconsistent due to the still rather recent proliferation of wireless technology. The WHO has classified extremely low-frequency magnetic fields and radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, such as radition emitted by cell phones, as potentially carcinogenic to humans (Class 2B carcinogen). Furthermore, a recent ruling...

Radiation 5G antennas restricted: uncertainty about danger to public health

The Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs is considering national restrictions on the radiation emitted by transmission masts. The roll-out of 5G is expected to result in a proliferation of antennas, including in lampposts and bus shelters. This may pose a risk to public health.Source: Algemeen Dagblad, Peter Winterman. Translated from Dutch by JRS."5G can operate at a higher frequency. That means more capacity, but the range of an antenna is shorter. As a result, many more small transmitters will be needed, which will appear everywhere in the streetscape" Spokesperson for the Ministry of Economic AffairsA document from the Ministry...
