Health Effects of Cellphone & Cell Tower Radiation: Implications for 5G

Health Effects of Cellphone & Cell Tower Radiation: Implications for 5G - Webinar presented by Dr. Joel Moscowitz, Director, Center for Family and Community Health, School of Public Health, UC Berkeley, 3 November 2021 (82 min.)

Excellent presentation! About a thousand people, including from some 40 countries, registered for the Webinar presented by Dr. Joel Moscowitz on 3 November 2021.
In 2020, the telecom industry spent $108 million on lobbying at the federal level in the U.S. In 2017, there were 400 million subscriber connections. By the same year, the U.S. had 273 smartphones in use. A majority of children under 12 years of age are smartphone users. About half of children aged 2 or younger have used smartphones. By 2020, there were 417,000 cell antenna sites in the U.S. For the 5G rollout, 800,000 new cell antenna sites will be needed over the next 6 years.

A review of cell phone use and tumor risk by Choi, Dr. Moscowitz et al, published in 2020, indicated that “cellular phone use with cumulative call time more than 1000 h [17 minutes per day over 10 years] statistically significantly increased the risk of tumors”. There have been reports of an increase in brain tumor incidence in 11 countries, including France, and also in the U.S.

Dr. Moscowitz ended his presentation with the words: “We are guinea pigs in a massive technological experiment that threatens our health. Our government must fund the research needed to determine a safe level of wireless radiation exposure and strengthen the FCC’s radiofrequency exposure limits. In the meantime, the government should impose a moratorium on technologies that increase our wireless radiation exposure to new forms of wireless radiation like 5G.”
