A number of organisations, including EMFscientist, 5Gappeal and Cornish group Villagers Against Masts (VAM) have raised numerous health and environmental concerns after it was confirmed that 5G trials will take place in Cornwall and Cumbria.
Jane Harvey, founding member of VAM, told us “It is interesting seeing different reactions. Some people simply won’t want to engage in the conversation about mobile devices and safety since we have been made to become addicted to them”
“Since researching the health effects, I have a real concern over masts, but also Wi-Fi and the looming 5g technology. 5g is not good at all. Unfortunately Cornwall and Cumbria have been chosen to trial 5g in rural areas. The US has seen 5g rolling out in many places, impacting human health, wildlife and the environment.
“5g requires closer connectivity, a mast every 10-20 houses. So, imagine the countryside dotted with these. Also, once they get permission for one mast on an AONB, a precedent is set and it would be very tricky to stop more.”
Jane Harvey continued “5g is a weapons grade frequency. There is no knowing the future implications for us – we are the guinea pigs. Over 200 scientists from 38 countries around the world have signed a petition to put on hold the 5g roll out. Thousands of scientists have published papers showing evidence of the harm 5g will cause.
We, as humans will have to cope with the on-going 2g, 3g, 4g and then the super strong 5g. The wavelength itself is smaller, 1mm. This is the difference, it is absorbed into our bodies and affects us at a molecular level.
Central government are very pro-masts and pro 5g. We must ask why this is.
