Cell Towers, Smart Meters and Wireless EMF Radiation
The county and city councils are approving cell towers on school sites and in neighborhoods despite the fact that a significant body of peer-reviewed research has found harmful effects from cell tower radiation. Local leadership needs to realize that the FCC never provided for the needs different exposure limits for those most vulnerable (babies, toddlers, and pre-teens). It was 1996 when the federal government created regulations in the Telecom Act that strangles local policymakers from considering the potential health dangers the needs different exposure limits. The Telecommunications Act of 1996 essentially removed the value of life and well being of the residents of an affected community in favor of money and profit and tied the hands of local officials to deny a tower based on health concerns.This does NOT excuse our local authorities from their duty to protect Idaho citizens in life and property. This means that our local authorities must get creative and assert their authority in protecting our property values for the sake of our health.
Studies worldwide confirm that exposure to EMFs can cause health problems that most medical doctors are not currently able to diagnose.
The following symptoms and conditions have been correlated to EMF exposure:

What are EMFs?
Electric and magnetic fields together are referred to as electromagnetic fields, electro- magnetic radiation, or EMF for short. Our exposure to man-made electromagnetic fields started about 130 years ago and levels are a billion times higher today. The primary EMFs we’re exposed to are:
– Stray electric current and voltage
– Dirty electricity
– Magnetic and electrical fields
– Radio frequency and microwave radiation
What Causes EMFs?
Modern electronic devices increase our exposure levels drastically. These devices include:
– Cell or cordless phones, cell towers, cell antennas, gaming controllers, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
– Energy efficient lighting, heating, ventilation, air conditioning systems & and pool pump motors
– Solar electric systems and electric car chargers
– Electric wiring, power lines, and smart meters
– Computers, laptops, and tablets
– Baby Monitors, wearable wireless devices
Government “Protective” Regulations?
Voting on the placement of cell towers,
On July 12, 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics sent a letter to the FCC Chairman in favor of the RF Review stating, “ concerns have been raised that long-term RF exposure at this level affects the brain and other tissues and may be connected to types of brain cancer, including glioma and meningioma”. The AAP noted that the World Health Organization said “mobile-phone emissions are ‘possibly carcinogenic to humans… Children, however, are not little adults and are disproportionately impacted by all environmental exposures, including cell phone radiation…. In fact, according to IARC [International Agency for Research on Cancer], when used by children, the average RF energy deposition is two times higher in the brain and 10 times higher in the bone marrow of the skull, compared with mobile phone use by adults.”
Obviously, people are using devices differently than in 1991 and at that time the public was not exposed to today’s daily 24-hour long-term low-level exposures. Close longer-term contact with devices carried on persons in pockets and as watches were not considered in the initial federal guidelines.
What is 5G?
5G antenna actively deploy highly concentrated, pulse-modulated microwave radiation in many different simultaneous wavelengths. Most people feel this immediately when microwave antennas are turned on.
People feel different than they’ve ever felt before – awake all night, buzzed, headachy, dehydrated, nauseous, beside themselves, unable to focus, with heart irregularities and skin-crawling rashes. And it only gets worse over time: physical torture and early death. And we cannot even conceive of the torture that insects, birds, and other animals feel. They die early, too, as do plants.
Is our Federal government doing anything?
The FCC is reviewing our 20 year old research on exposure limits. These standards do not protect us from the biological effects of long term low level exposures. The American Academy of Pediatrics is calling for the US to strengthen laws to protect child’s health and to fund large scale research. These protective regulations may take years to pass.
Is our State government doing anything?
The state and city leadership can not excuse themselves from the responsibility to protect the citizens considering the property rights and environmental impact are areas that are NOT restricted in the Telecom Act.
Are YOU doing anything to protect your family?
Are you trying to figure out what to do about the health issues that will arise or how to get your freedom back?
