Hello, my name is Frank Clegg and I have spent over 40 Years in the technology sector. My most recent position as President of Microsoft Canada. In my career I have seen the tremendous benefit that technology can provide. I have also seen the potential harm if technology is not implemented correctly and I believe that our current implementation of 5g technology is not safe. That is why I co-founded Canadians For Safe Technology and why I joined the advisory group of the Business Health Trust. I am especially concerned about our current implementation of wireless 5g technology.
The more research I do the more experts I talk to the more concerned I become.
Now there are no doubts that there are benefits like autonomous vehicles and increased data download speeds at the same time I think there is potential harm. I think its important we understand that 5G is not just an incremental number on our cel-phones. In fact 231 scientists from 41 nations around the world have formally written to the United Nations, its member nations, and the World Health Organisation over the planned rollout of 5G technology especially for vulnerable populations like children, pregnant women and environmentally sensitive. They have been joined by state legislatures and Federal regulators who have asked the FCC for evidence that there is no harm from the rollout of 5G technology.
There is no doubt that all the companies involved in the rollout are well-meaning. However, their focus is on being first to market, getting new products into the market as efficiently and as quickly as they can. Iam am not aware of any research by my industry or any related industry that deal at all with the healt effect of wireless technology. Here are some important facts about 5G:
[ 2:00 MIN ]
5G technology has not been tested. I am not aware of a single study that shows 5G technology is safe.
5G … As a wireless technology gives off radiofrequency radiation which is absorbed by the human body and accumulates in the human body. One segment of 5G technology is millimetre waves; millimetre waves are used by the US and Israeli governments in their active denial systems which are used for crowd control. What they do is provide a very painful reaction in the skin and organs of the body.
We have no idea what the impacts will be to human health if that type of millimetre technology is used and we are exposed to it 24 hours a day seven days a week.
There are significant proven health effects from wireless technology and wireles devices. These include:
- Heart palpitations
All caused by exposure to wireless devices and the radiation coming from them
More serious symptoms and conditions include:
- Heart Arrythmia
- Numbness and Tingling
- Permanent DNA Damage
Mental health is also impacted:
- Mood swings
- Emotional instability
In fact all of these health factors and medical conditions have risen exponentially over the last 30 years and hundreds of studies show proof of biological harm from wireless devices.
Most recently in 2018 the National Institute of Health’s Toxicology program released the findings of a $14 million, 25 year study that show clear evidence of harm and permanent DNA damage. This study several months later was verified by the prestigious Ramazini Institute of Italy which found the same results.
Now you may ask how a product with this potential harm could be released to the market, to the public for public use? The way the process works is that the FCC regulates all wireless devices and products associated with them. Unfortunatley the FCC is made up of former Telecom executives, lawyers and engineers – It does not have any doctors and scientists – which you would expect to be involved with the regulation of potentially harmfull products.
[4:36 min] In fact the FCC guidlelines are 20 years out of date, without any major, significant improvement. countries such as China, Russia, Italy and Switzerland have guidelines which are 100 times safer for their citizens. The FCC guidelines are based on small, short term, infrequent exposure. They do not worry about the cumulative effects of multiple devices. They don’t measure or monitor our exposure 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And they have shown no special consideration for children, pregnant women or people who have shown environmental sensitivity to wireless radiation.
In addition to the concerns about the guidelines there is no oversight by the FCC and in fact the Telecommunications industry is self policing. So what we are left with is almost a wild west scenario where the regulations and the guidelines are significantly lacking and the industry is left to its own accord to roll out this technology to the marketplace.
In addition to the concerns about the FCC guidelines themselves The Federal Communications Act of 1996 prohibits any Telecommunications company from being sued for the health and safety of its products. In other words there is no liability to the Telecoms industry for the health and safety of their products.
Just last week the re-insurer Swiss Rea came up with their annual forecast and the specifically came up with 5g technology as an upcoming, insurable health concern, globally, over the next three years. There is also mounting evidence to show that the Telecomms industry knew about the potential impacts of RF radiation years ago. In fact we are beginning to see from my industry some of the behaviour we saw from the Tobacco industry over the last few decades.
The Telecoms industry has over 500 lobyists working in Washington D.C. every day protecting the industry. Together all of these issues I have referenced plus a general lack of awareness among the general public have led us into the situation where we are today.
So.. Where are we today?
Today we have a significant amout of exposure in our homes, businesses, schools and public places we go to. Cisco has recently announced and predicted that by 2030 there will be 500 Billion inter-connected wireless devices in the world. Thats equivalent to 60 devices per person. Many States and governments around the world are debating and legislating the rollout of 5g technology. Unfortunatly what we are seeing at the federal and state level is the fast-tracking of legislation to support the rollout of 5G infrastructure.
Unfortunately this legislation seems to be taking away all individual rights, and the rights of towns, counties and cities and passing more power to the Telecommunication companies.
We believe this is a historic and precedent setting powershift from the individual, local and state level to an industry. In fact many communities in the US and around the world are passing moratoriums preventing the rollout of 5G technology until it is proven safe.
5G will impact you personally.
There are signs which show the requirement for small cell 5G antennas as close as every third house in the neighborhood and could be as close as every 500 feet in public areas.
The impact of that level of radiation at that frequency at that level of intensity and power, 24 hours a day, seven days a week is unpecedented and is not understood.
I have spent the last 5 years of my life and had the opportunity to speak with experts on a world wide basis who have spent their careers studying the effect of wireless radiation and devices. I have also had the opportunity to meet with some of the great minds in the technology sector who have helped create these products in our daily lives which are of tremendous benefit to us. I am convinced there are safer alternatives available which could give us the best of both worlds. Technology which can give us tremendous technology but technology which is safe.
There is no incentive to provide the funding to research and look for safer alternatives, so that is why it is up to us to encourage that investment, that can be by:
- asking our legislatures to pass the necessary legislation
- encouraging the industry to do it
- or by us directly by advocating change in the industry to provide safer technology which still provides tremendous benefit.
We cant do this all on our own we need your help
Here is what you can do: The most important thing is to get educated – we can provide a little bit of an overview and some of the science which shows there is potential harm but now you have to take the initiative. There are some tremendous websites.
- Canadians for safe technology
- The Environmental Health Trust
- The physicians for safe technology
We encourage you to spread the word, share this information, share the video with friends and family, co-workers. With legislatures at the federal, state and local level. In your local school boards. All can have an impact if they choose to engage.
Ultimately you knowledge is your power and your power is in your hands.
I fundamentally believe that we can have the best of both worlds – Access to the technology – the tremendous benefits it provides but in a safe manner. We are advocates for safe technology not no technology.
I thank you for your time.
