a letter to President Biden expressing the urgent need to evaluate the human health and environmental impact of 5G and the proliferation of wireless networks. They call for reducing wireless exposures, an awareness campaign, the development of protective wireless safety limits, addressing occupational exposures an update to the CDC and EPA website pages that downplay the science and an action plan to minimize the health effects of technology to children. The letter addresses the lack of accountability in the US government in regards to non ionizing radiation as the EPA was defunded in 1996.
The letter to President Biden makes 12 recommendations and was accompanied by a scientific briefing on the health and environmental effects of 5G that has been send to policymakers worldwide. In 2019 US medical professionals sent a letter to President Trump calling for urgent action on 5G and wireless networks.
Before the election Biden did state “There is a lot of debate in the scientific community of whether or not 5G does what you are saying. It should be studied thoroughly…” @CBSNews

Letter to President Biden April 2021
Health and Environmental Effects of 5G
The letter states, “5G requires hundreds of thousands of new so-called “small” cell towers and billions of new wireless devices, which will use massive amounts of energy in their production, operation, and disposal. 5G antennas are referred to as “hungry, hungry hippos” and “a battery vampire.” Numerous reports have documented the exponentially increased use of energy by 5G and 4G densification and the Internet of Things. Streaming with wireless results in higher greenhouse gas emissions compared to safer, faster, and more secure corded/wired fiber-optic connections. While there may be improvements in energy efficiency for new devices individually, these gains are completely lost in the increases in total demand that will take place with the proliferation of games, videos, other streaming services, and the continued generation of highly addictive apps.”
In France over 500 scientists and professors called to boycott 5G due to the skyrocketing energy consumption of 5G documented in numerous reports stating that “5G is accelerating the destruction of the planet. And not just because of global warming: the mining required to manufacture new technological gadgets has, in some parts of the world, dramatic consequences. In addition to the damage to ecosystems, they are men, women and children working in mines without protection, with rudimentary tools, for a pittance, sometimes under paramilitary or mafia control.”
Over 600 cities in Italy have passed resolutions to halt 5G until safety research has been completed adding to numerous cities around the world. In the United States, the New Hampshire Commission to Study the Environmental and Health Effects of Evolving 5G Technology has released its final report recommending reducing public exposure to radio frequency radiation, measuring RF radiation levels and replacing Wi-Fi with wired (not Wi-Fi) devices. Resolutions to halt 5G have been passed by Hawaii County, Farragut Tennessee, Coconut Creek Florida, and Easton Connecticut. Cities such as Los Altos,Petaluma, Mill Valley, and San Diego County California have adopted policies to restrict 5G small cells near homes. Oregon passed a Bill to study Wi-Fi health effects. Hundreds of scientists and thousands of doctors are calling to halt 5G and reduce exposure to people and the environment.
