Dear Public Health England
My request is with regard to the proposed 'rollout' of the next generation of 5G microwave wireless technology, and the impact/ramifications in terms of public health & safety implications
What studies/research (if any) have to date been carried out, to determine the risks/ health/implications over the long term to both human health, and indeed, the environment as a whole, to the rollout of this (highly controversial) technology?. This, i understand is a 'Class 1 Radiation,' with a 24-90 Gigahertz frequency, as opposed to the 1-5Gigahertz currently used by 2/3/4G technology. Claims would appear to suggest the installation of L.E.D street lights, these with 5G 'arrays' atop, and small 'cell stations' placed perhaps every two to eight homes in urban area's, due to the use of shorter 'millimeter waves' used by the 5G technology. This 'technology' is (i understand) a 'military grade' system. The city of Brussels, (among others) has been one of the first to recently announced it is not permitting the technology, Somewhat ironic, with the city containing both the European Commission and NATO HQ!. My overall impression suggests public awareness is very limited/lacking in this regard, with local/public authorities compounding the issue by claiming to have little or no information, which, based on the scale & risk to public health of this enterprise is frankly astounding.
Thank you for your help in this matter. I look forward to your reply.
