Join Fight to Stop Dangerous 5G Infrastructure

The nationwide rollout of 5G wireless communication might be good for driverless cars and “smart” homes, but research suggests it may be bad for America’s health. Now, concerned communities are banding together to demand that Congress stop the build-out of 5G infrastructure. 

A 2018 study by the National Toxicology Program of the National Institutes of Health confirmed that prolonged exposure to microwave radiation can cause oxidative stress that can lead to cancer. Another 2018 study, conducted by the Ramazzini Institute, in Italy, showed similar biological effects from exposure to radiation from cell towers. 

These studies build on a large and growing body of published, independent, peer-reviewed research showing the biological harm from RF microwave radiation, says Patti Wood, co-founder and co-director of Grassroots Environmental Education, a nonprofit environmental health organization based in Port Washington, New York.

As local governments can do little to stop the industry-funded race to roll out 5G, Wood suggests that concerned citizens join Americans for Responsible Technology, a collaboration of grassroots organizations that are working together to stop the wireless build-out at the federal level.
