Oliver Dowding, a farmer from Somerset and the spokesman for the Green Party for agriculture in the South West, said that NHS ‘will not be able to cope’ if 5G wireless technology is deployed across the UK. He added that there is nothing wrong with existing 4G phone signals.
He said: “Society does not need it and it will cost the country a fortune.
“With 450,000 people nationally who are electro-sensitive, 5G is going to exaggerate and exacerbate this problem hugely, and the NHS will not be able to cope.
“People won't be able to cope, and then will start asking what was it all in aid of?”
Several councils have previously voiced out their concerns on the possible effects of 5G on health and the environment. Councils in Frome, Glastonbury, Shepton Mallet and Street have already objected to the installation of 5G masts in their area while Brussels, Belgium’s capital city, has moved to block it.
Amber, from Shepton Mallet, said: “I am personally thrilled that Shepton Mallet has been successful at blocking this technology - at least for the time being.
“5G has no place on our streets, homes and in our lives.”
