Final Report by New Hampshire State Offers 15 Recommendations Around 5G Safety
The message was clear and heard.
Health advocates declared their concerns over 5G technology asking for an investigation into potential repercussions to public health and biodiversity.
This week, the same group of citizens called it a victory. Claims by “federal regulatory agencies that 5G technology is not harmful” were challenged “by thousands of peer-reviewed studies documenting deleterious health effects associated with cellphone radiation exposure.“ It ended with New Hampshire’s State commission releasing a majority acknowledgment that further steps should be taken.
Delayed by the COVID-19, but not forgotten, The State of New Hampshire's "Commission to Study the Environmental and Health Effects of Evolving 5G Technology" recently released its final report. Among a list of concerns associated with RF electromagnetic field effects was acknowledging that residents want seamless connectivity.
But don't fear, there is hope in finding a balance between the benefits of technology and citizens' right to health, and the report marks a crucial step forward.
15 recommendations resulted in —15 precautions to public safety in an era of speedy connections.
This statewide acknowledgment is a win for advocacy groups, already taking individual protections as the state makes these recommendations available to policymakers.
Top Five New Hampshire State Recommendations from their report:
1.State agencies should include on their websites information and warnings about radiofrequency (RF) microwave radiation from all sources, including 5G small cells installed on public rights-of-way and specific warnings concerning newborns and young children, and pregnant women.
2. New wireless antennae should be set back from residences, businesses, and schools.
3. Schools and public libraries should migrate away from wireless connections to hardwired or optical connections.
4. A statewide policy should encourage the deployment of internally wired connections and optical wireless to serve all commercial and public properties statewide.
5. States should engage agencies with appropriate scientific expertise within ecology to develop RF radiation safety limits for the protection of trees, plants, birds, insects, and pollinators.
Recommendations may not be direct solutions, but it is in important acknowledgment predicated on a desire to build forward.
This report paves the road for cooperative measures forward. If you are reading this, your next step is clear. Request the establishment of a 5G commission locally. Diligence is heard. The need is now.
