Dangers of 5G: A Saskatoon Case Study

The Dangers of 5G: A Call for Greater Attention to Health Risks

In the age of rapid technological advancements, it is crucial that we pay close attention to the potential health risks associated with new technologies. The recent presentation by Joel M. Moskowitz, a professor at UC Berkeley, shed light on the dangers of 5G technology during a session with Mayor Clark and City Councillors in Saskatoon. Through it all, it was evident that further examination and proactive measures are necessary to ensure the well-being of Saskatoon’s residents.

Understanding the Concerns

Joel M. Moskowitz’s presentation centered around the lack of safety proof provided by the trillion-dollar telecommunications industry regarding wireless microwave radiation. While the City Council seems eager to embrace the telecom industry and view it as a pathway to modernity, it is important to acknowledge the potential risks involved. Once cell towers are erected, they are unlikely to be voluntarily removed, making it essential for the City Council to take proactive steps to safeguard the health and welfare of its residents.

The Research on Wireless Radiation

Every day, research studies conducted worldwide highlight the harmful effects of wireless radiation. The installation of cell towers and the subsequent increase in microwave radiation have been linked to ecological damage, impacting flying insects, small birds, and trees in addition to human health. This raises concerns about the long-term consequences of unchecked wireless radiation expansion in Saskatoon.

Joel M. Moskowitz, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Family and Community Health at UC Berkeley, has extensively studied the effects of radio frequency radiation (RFR) and other electromagnetic fields on human health. Research conducted from 1990 to July 2023 has consistently shown significant effects from exposure to RFR and extremely low frequency (ELF) and static electromagnetic fields (EMF). Studies reveal that such exposure can result in oxidative effects, DNA damage, and affect genetic, neurological, and reproductive systems.

The Call for Action

In light of the growing body of scientific evidence, it is essential for the City Council to demand proof of safety and thoroughly evaluate the potential negative impacts of further wireless radiation expansion within Saskatoon. Mr. Moskowitz’s statements regarding the preponderance of research findings further emphasize the need for caution and the inclusion of unbiased information in public consultations.

As Saskatoon strives to become a modern city, it is crucial that the potential health risks of 5G technology and wireless microwave radiation are given due consideration. By demanding proof of safety and thoroughly evaluating the research findings, the City Council can take proactive measures to protect the well-being of its residents. It is up to us, as a society, to strike a balance between technological advancement and the health concerns of our communities.

Remember, staying informed and engaged is the key to shaping a future that is both modern and safe.
