EASTON, Conn. (WTNH) — “The town of Easton has decided to stop its 5G wireless technology rollout.
Until research and testing show its safe for humans and the environment, a 5G cease and desist resolution was unanimously approved by the town on May 7. The American Academy of Pediatrics and hundreds of medical and scientific experts have advised the federal communication commission to test the long-term safety of 5G technology.
Easton is the first town in Connecticut to ban 5G.”
“People have been on lockdown for the past 2 months, but one freight train that has not been halted by Covid-19 is the fast and furious installation of 4G/5G small cells across the state, including in residential neighborhoods. However, one small town in Fairfield County, Easton, recently decided to put the brakes on the 5G rollout. On May 7, 2020, the Easton Board of Selectmen unanimously approved a 5G cease and desist resolution “until such technologies have been proven safe to human health and the environment through independent research and testing.”
The resolution cited that the Federal Communications Commission has not updated its Radio Frequency (RF) radiation guidelines since 1996 and lacked long-term safety testing of the new 5G wireless technology, despite being advised to do so by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the U.S. General Accounting Office, and hundreds of medical and scientific experts around the world. RF radiation is classified as a Class 2B carcinogen (possible cancer causing agent) according to the World Health Organization.
On February 6, 2019, during a Senate hearing of the Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, Senator Richard Blumenthal determined that the telecommunication companies did not conduct any research to give Americans the assurance that proposed 5th Generation infrastructure would be harmless. There are thousands of peer reviewed studies indicating harmful effects to flora, fauna, humans and atmosphere. Most notably, the U.S. National Toxicology Program in November of 2018 published an extensive $30 million study, spanning 10 years, which clearly indicated harm ranging from heart schwannomas, brain tumors, cancer and other maladies from exposure to RF radiation.”
