U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal grilled wireless industry representatives, who admitted the industry has done ZERO health & safety studies on 5G technology. Meanwhile, dozens of independent studies indicates that 5G is a risk to all biological life.
[WASHINGTON, DC]— During today’s Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee hearing on the future of 5G wireless technology and their impact on the American people and economy, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) raised concerns with the lack of any scientific research and data on the technology’s potential health risks.
Blumenthal blasted the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)—government agencies jointly-responsible for ensuring that cellphone technologies are safe to use—for failing to conduct any research into the safety of 5G technology, and instead, engaging in bureaucratic finger-pointing and deferring to industry.
In December 2018, Blumenthal and U.S. Representative Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) sent a letter to FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr seeking answers regarding potential health risks posed by new 5G wireless technology. At today’s hearing, Blumenthal criticized Carr for failing to provide answers, and instead, just echoing, “the general statements of the FDA, which shares regulatory responsibility for cell phones with the FCC.” Blumenthal also decried the FDA’s statements as “pretty unsatisfactory.” A PDF of Carr’s complete response is available here.
During an exchange with wireless industry representatives, Blumenthal asked them whether they have supported research on the safety of 5G technology and potential links between radiofrequency and cancer, and the industry representatives conceded they have not.
If you go to the FDA website, there basically is a cursory and superficial citation to existing scientific data saying ‘The FDA has urged the cell phone industry to take a number of steps, including support additional research on possible biological effects of radio frequency fields for the type of signals emitted by cell phones.’ I believe that Americans deserve to know what the health effects are, not to pre-judge what scientific studies may show, and they also deserve a commitment to do the research on outstanding questions.”
“So my question for you: How much money has the industry committed to supporting additional independent research—I stress independent—research? Is that independent research ongoing? Has any been completed? Where can consumers look for it? And we’re talking about research on the biological effects of this new technology.”
At the end of the exchange, Blumenthal concluded,
So there really is no research ongoing. We’re kind of flying blind here, as far as health and safety is concerned.”
In November 2018, the National Toxicology Program released the final results of the longest and most expensive study to date on cellphones and cancer. Those studies found “some evidence” of a link to cancer, at least in male rats. However, the study only focused on the risks associated with 2G and 3G cell phones.
The latest 5G wireless technology relies on the deployment of many more new antennas and transmitters that are clustered lower to the ground and closer to homes and schools. There has been even more limited research with respect to the health ramifications of 5G technology, and the FCC has thus far failed to adequately explain how they have determined 5G is safe.

The VAXXED team interviewed a mother in Long Beach, California, who is a nurse and was pro-vaccine. She explains that all her children were up-to-date on their vaccines before she gave her daughter the Gardasil vaccine at age 16.
As a nurse, she routinely gave vaccines to patients at work, and never questioned these vaccines. She states that she was never taught about their side effects.
So when she heard that Gardasil was a vaccine to prevent cancer, and that her daughter needed to have it before she became sexually active, she did not hesitate to have her daughter come in to the office where she worked, where she herself administered the first vaccine.
After that first vaccine, her daughter was always tired, and they thought maybe she had “mono.” Her body ached all the time, and she had difficulty walking long distances. Prior to the vaccine, her daughter was healthy and active.
Her mother did not associate these symptoms with the vaccine, however. She attributed it to a poor diet and a busy lifestyle.
Because of her daughter’s fear of vaccines, she decided to bring the second Gardasil vaccine home and give it to her daughter in their home.
Soon after the second vaccine, her daughter was diagnosed with leukemia. 10 months later, she was dead.
I want to share my story because it is very important.
This vaccine is horrible. I don’t know if I wouldn’t have given it to her if she would still be here.
And I feel really responsible because I gave it to her physically…
I just thought I was doing what was right to protect my daughter from cancer, and she got cancer!
I tried to protect her…

In our September 18th debate for Spectrum TV, Kaiser’s Chief of Pediatrics, Dr. Robert Riewerts, parroted Pharma’s popular canard that the Gardasil vaccine has eliminated cervical cancer in Australia—the first country to mandate the jab. This is false.
… Gardasil actually increases the risk of cervical cancer by a terrifying 44.6% among women who were exposed to HPV infection prior to vaccination.
Slide 1: Table 17 from Merck’s own clinical studies.
The table shows that Gardasil actually increases the risk of cervical cancer by a terrifying 44.6% among women who were exposed to HPV infection prior to vaccination. If anyone ever bullies you to take Gardasil, look up “Gardasil Vaccine Insert” on your cell phone to see all of the adverse events and show them this table. [From original BLA. Study 013 CSR.

The House of Representatives Standing Committee on Communications and the Arts has commenced a parliament-first inquiry into 5G network technology.
The announcement follows months of public outcry from concerned citizens and community action groups over the rollout of 5G in Australia.
5G refers to the fifth generation of mobile technology, in line with the International Mobile Telecommunications-2020 (IMT-2020) Standard of the International Telecommunications Union and the associated releases of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP).
According to the official page, the committee will conduct research to:
- Investigate the capability, capacity and deployment of 5G;
- Understand the application of 5G, including use cases for enterprise and government.
Chairing the reviewing committee is Nationals MP Dr David Gillespie, alongside Deputy Chair, Labor MP Ed Husic and six committee members.
Interestingly, matters relating to national security are out of scope for this national inquiry.
In a media release, Dr Gillespie said “5G will transform the way we live and work, and provide opportunities for family life, industry and commerce” and the committee “want to hear about the opportunities and challenges of 5G”.
However, no date has been set for the committee to report back to the public.
The Australian government is also yet to formally respond to the announcement.
GOVERNMENT ON THE ROPES
Communications Minister, Paul Fletcher, has assured Telstra that it is “backing high-speed 5G mobile network rollout plans” amid signs of a community backlash against the technology.
The government has promised a ‘stronger public stance’ over the technology’s safety.
Fletcher, who has been exposed as a former Director of telecommunications giant Optus, has met with executives for a demonstration of the high-speed 5G mobile networks several weeks ago, as the $42.6 billion telco continues to build the new infrastructure across the country.
A spokesman for Mr Fletcher declined to comment on the minister’s meeting with Telstra but said “the agency played an important role in providing authoritative advice to government and the community on matters of electromagnetic energy safety”.
This comes as growing groups of concerned citizens ramp up a campaign, which includes protests, council complaints, online petitions and flyers, against 5G technology and electromagnetic energy (EME) and radiation.
These national community action groups have formed to share information relating to 5G and to take action by hosting local events to connect with like-minded citizens.
The groups have staged protests in recent months across the country and have scheduled a number of protests and forums to oppose the rollout.
The government has been criticised for acting in the interests of telcos by some anti-5G groups, who are concerned the technology could lead to infertility and cancers.
A judge has refused to ‘gag’ an-anti 5G lighting campaigner, ruling the issue SHOULD be debated.
Mark Steele claims 5G kills babies and causes cancer, and believes it’s secretly being used in Gateshead.
The council denies this and applied for an injunction to limit what the 57-year-old could even post online about 5G.
But Recorder Nolan QC said he refused to ‘gag’ him, adding: “The public have a right to know.”
Outside the court, protesters – some dressed like World War One soldiers – used microphones to air their 5G concerns.
Inside the court, a packed gallery – including a small child – heard claims Steele had harassed an array of council staff and councillors.
It heard Steele accused one worker of “crimes against humanity” for their involvement with the lights.
One was branded a “murdering c***” while another, repairing a streetlight, was called a “baby killer”, the court was told.
“I said do you know [the lights] are capable of killing babies,” Steele recalled in his evidence on Thursday.
He claims that worker, like several of the alleged harassment victims, “laughed” at him.
And speaking after the Newcastle County Court hearing, Steele said he’s aware he’s been ridiculed at times for his beliefs.
These, the court heard, include claims 5G is linked to birds and bees dying across Gateshead.
“I don’t blame anyone for laughing,” he told ChronicleLive.
“I’m an expert in this particular field and I find it unbelievable and I don’t expect anyone not find it nonsensical.
“But this is happening.”
But now Steele has offered an olive branch to Gateshead Council, urging bosses to sit down and discuss the issue with him.
The council has strenuously denied secretly using 5G – most notably in an infamous viral Facebook post.
And despite not being ‘gagged’, the judge did impose three conditions on Steele as part of a watered down two-year injunction.
During the hearing, Steel had denied the council’s claim his behaviour had gone over the top.
Outside, he said he had “acted proportionally”.
“The children in my locality are bleeding from the nose – they are suffering from this technology,” claimed the Percy Gardens inventor.
In court, he claimed a series of boffins – including some at the prestigious Harvard University – now support his 5G fears.
Gateshead Council previously dismissed them as “entirely false”.
The conditions prohibit him from breaking harassment laws and limit who he can film.
The interim order imposed in July was much tougher – restricting what he could post on Facebook.
Imposing the new order, Recorder Nolan warned him: “I’m not going to give you a gagging order – I’m just going to ask you to behave yourself.”
“We don’t know how these conspiracy stories start, but we are happy to report that this is exactly what these are,” they wrote in a Facebook statement in April.
“These tales are completely untrue and you should ignore them.
“Please be assured that there is no scientific basis or credible evidence for any of these scare stories about street lights causing cancer and other illnesses.”
Science or not, Recorder Nolan said Steele had put a “tremendous amount of research” into the 5G debate and that his voice should be allowed to be heard.
“It is an area which I can accept there is an area of public concern,” he added.
“And the public have a right to know – this is a free country.”

Thousands of people protested in the Swiss capital Bern Saturday over the roll-out of a 5G wireless technology across the country, which they fear could damage people’s health.
The protesters, many carrying placards, gathered in front of the Swiss parliament building, in a bid to stop the construction of more 5G-compatible antennae.
“The fact that so many people turned out today is a strong sign against the uncontrolled introduction of 5G,” said Tamlin Schibler Ulmann, co-president of Frequencia, the group that organised the rally.
The tiny principality of Monaco became the first country in Europe to inaugurate a 5G mobile phone network in July based on technology from Chinese firm Huawei, which is seen by the US as a major security risk.
But critics in Switzerland argue that the electromagnetic radiation the new system emits poses unprecedented health and environmental risks compared to previous generations of mobile technology.
Online petitions have helped persuade several Swiss cantons — in Geneva, Vaud, Fribourg and Neuchatel — to postpone the construction of antennae as a precaution.
The Swiss Federation of Doctors (FMH) has also argued for a cautious approach to the new technology.
Opponents of the new technology are trying to gather the 100,000 signatures they need to force a referendum on imposing a moratorium on the technology until its risks can be properly assessed.
In February, Switzerland attributed 5G frequencies to three major operators, Swisscom, Sunrise and Salt, and the operators have been pushing the cutting-edge technology in television advertisements and on billboards.
By early July, 334 antennae stations for 5G were operational across the country, authorities have told AFP.
There are several studies on the health impacts of the new technology underway, including one by the World Health Organization, which has told AFP it had begun “conducting a risk assessment of health outcomes from radiofrequency fields exposure”.
A group of experts was also appointed by the Swiss government last year to probe the risks involved with introducing 5G, and their findings should be published by the end of the year.
According to research scientist Stephanie Seneff, PhD, autism – which she calls “the most pressing disease in the world today” – could affect 50 percent of the children born in the United States by the year 2025. And, although many in the corporately-controlled scientific community roll their eyes at such a warning, Dr. Seneff believes that glyphosate has a lot to do with the problem.
To arrive at her chilling prediction, Dr. Seneff reports that she merely extended the exponential curve that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has employed in their research on rates of autism spectrum disorder over the past three decades. In 2014, the CDC released data on the prevalence of autism in the United States, reporting that the condition affects one in 68 children.
Dr. Seneff maintains that skyrocketing autism rates are linked with glyphosate, the toxic herbicide in Monsanto’s Roundup. In addition to autism, Dr. Seneff reports that glyphosate has been linked to a plethora of diseases and conditions, including ADHD, food allergies, asthma, leaky gut, IBD, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, heart disease and cancer. Glyphosate’s effect on human health, says Dr. Seneff, is nothing short of “devastating.”
Don’t miss the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour, when Jonathan Landsman and Dr. Seneff expose the ugly truth about glyphosate – like you’ve never heard before and why the chemical companies desperately want to hide this truth.
Glyphosate is a “sleeper” toxin that is much more dangerous than originally believed
Glyphosate, which has been classified as a “probable carcinogen” by the World Health Organization (WHO), was originally developed as a heavy metal chelation agent, intended to clear pipes. It was then patented as an anti-microbial agent – before eventually being employed as a weed-killer.
