Much more must be learned about using 5G safely

In 1995 when we were still using a simple cell phone technology, the FCC set some safety regulations on the radiation tolerances using heat exposure to the brain when held against the head as the benchmark.

Fast forward 25 years to today, the wireless phones became smaller and more powerful at each development stage, shifting us from verbal communications to a multimedia tool now called a “mobile device,” holding as much memory as a computer. Usage grew exponentially to where the radiation level is now up five times as great as it was in the 1995 test. The FCC safety standards have not changed one iota since then.

So, knowing that, science is now showing us that our children are overexposed to radio frequencies that are 2xs higher in their brain and 10xs higher in the bone marrow of the skull, compared to the 1995 test.

It is not that we should be against this wonderful technology and its many benefits, but it must be done in a safe way. Protecting ourselves and our families is paramount. We must learn for ourselves about the hazards of this emerging technology. As stated in an opinion piece in Scientific American Magazine, research is showing us that there is no reason to believe 5G is safe. So please be cautious and learn as much as you can about the technology and look for ways to minimize the radiation levels in your home and neighborhood. — Ray Cesca, Oak Brook
