This is an excellent article by Devra Davis on 5G.
While we have limited control over what happens with 5G, we can take steps to reduce our RF exposure in and around our home, including getting a smart meter guard to reduce RF radiation from smart meters.
New Swiss Re Report Dubs 5G “Next Asbestos”
Looks like the 5G network — touted as the next coming for the tech sector — could well share the fate of the Segway, that over-hyped, over-promised revolution in motorized personal transport that did not materialize. To the disappointment of many savvy Segway investors and inventor Dean Kamen, the gigantic motorized scooter ended up as a niche market for business, medical and military security programs, and tour groups unafraid to appear slothful.
Not surprisingly, insurance for operating the machine required special provisions, especially after the very public pratfalls of President George H.W. Bush and journalist Piers Morgan, and the tragic death in 2010 of Segway’s newest owner, James W. Heselden, after driving off a cliff.
In 1997, after attending briefings about the looming disasters posed by superstorms from global climate change at the Kyoto conference, Mutual of Omaha and Metropolitan Life Insurance refused to cover warming-related damage. Now the secondary insurance market is explicitly refusing to insure against damages from 5G and other electromagnetic fields (EMF), fearing the technology that has yet to be built could potentially wreak as much havoc for their industry as asbestos did more than three decades earlierwhen it bankrupted several corporations.
In response to the growing unease of the insurance industry and pending lawsuits from more than 100 cities, companies are pouring millions intolobbying for 5G which will bring higher radiation levels to our front yards. In the U.S. the telecom industry is one of the most generous bi-partisan supporters of Congress and has the full support of Senators John Thune and Brian Schatz who have reintroduced federal streamlining legislationstripping local authority about the placement of 800 thousand new antennas, while some state legislation transfers liability from corporations to the government.
