US Senator Blumenthal Raises Concerns on 5G Wireless Technology Health Risks at Senate Hearing



mr. chairman thank you for having this hearing we've heard from a lot of witnesses from you today and others previously about the very important potential of 5g technology it promises to bring us a new era of connectivity with internet speeds as much as five times faster than what we have today with much lower latency and that's all a good thing but 5g as you well know also uses higher frequency waves that don't travel as far and will rely on a network of hundreds of thousands potentially millions of small cell sites and the question then is are there any health implication a nice Public Safety implication to those additional sites that are likely be located close to homes schools workplaces and closer and closer to the ground correct correct senator yes so in December of 2018 I sent a letter to FCC Commissioner Khare asking him to site for me recent scientific studies demonstrating the safety of this technology what research has been done where has it been published and compiled he has actually failed to do so and just echo the general statements of the FDA which shares regulatory responsibility for cell phones with the FCC if you go to the FDA website pretty unsatisfactory there basically is a cursory and superficial citation to existing scientific data saying quote the FDA has urged the cell phone industry to take a number of steps including support additional research on possible biological effects radio frequency fields for the type of signal emitted by cell phone I believe that Americans deserve to know what the health effects are not to prejudge what scientific studies may show and they deserve also a commitment to do the research on outstanding questions so my question for for you particularly mr. Gillan and mr. Perry 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 Thank You senator I think thank you for your focus on the issue safety is paramount and as you alluded to we rely on the expert agency x' we rely on the findings of the FDA and others as to the requirements to keep all of us safe there are no industry back studies to my knowledge right now happy to visit with you as to what opportunities you think there needs to be more studies and we're always for more science we also rely on what the scientists tell us so essentially the answer my question how much money 0 I can only follow up with you senator to my knowledge there's no active studies being backed by industry today anybody else know of industry commitments to to back research funded support it to ascertain scientifically the health fete senator I'm not aware either but I do know that with small sales especially you're going to have lower power levels and of course as from a carrier perspective you want to be able to manage interference so that that interference is the lowest interference possible so I would I would think that some of the studies or some of that information could be utilized in in looking at the health consequences but no I'm not aware of any no there really is no research ongoing we're kind of flying blind here so far as health and safety is concerned Thank You mr. chairman

  1. So, the FCC and other Government Agencies Have NO NEGATIVE INFORMATION AND CAN NOT GIVE INFORMATION AS TO THE SAFETY OF 5G.
    THE REASON THEY DO NOT HAVE ANY STUDIES ON THE DANGERS AND PROBLEMS, IS THEY CAN NOT BE CHARGED WITH LYING TO CONGRESS OR THE CITIZENS.
    SINCE WHEN ARE THE TAX PAYERS FUNDING PRIVATE INDUSTRY FOR PROFIT WITHOUT FIRST HAVING PROOF THAT THE TECHNOLOGY IS SAFE AND HAS A CLEAN BILL OF HEALTH?

  2. WHy fund research to tell us what we already know? Non-ionising radiation causes zero harm to humans.

  3. This is a great video, it's a massive experiment on the whole human race.

  4. Surely the military have done research into 5G given they use it as a weapon?

  5. https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/569600/response/1376068/attach/html/4/686271%20P%20Traynor%20Response.pdf.html

  6. These sociopaths! They won't even answer a senators' question. At least a child looks/feels guilty when they've been caught out!!

  7. Mr. Gillen: "Safety is paramount… There are no industry-backed studies to my knowledge right now [on safety]." Bit of a contradiction there!!

  8. The lady behind the senator constantly fiddling with her smartphone while he raises a huge important question on the safety of wireless technology… oh the irony, has she even taken in and listened to any of the concerns being raised? Most people are now addicted to this technology, a jump in the speed of downloads seems to be the be all and end all above safety issues. We're doomed.

  9. I don't just oppose 5G, I oppose 4G… 3G… 2G and 1G!_ Studies have NEVER concluded this technology is safe, so why do governments continue to allow it? I have never owned a cellphone. I should not have MY health damaged just so that selfish people can feed their addiction to flooding their bodies with microwaves!

  10. Me Gillen looks like the most unhealthy person which tells me he could care less about his health so he’s not going to care about others.

  11. Cell phone technology has been widely distributed for 10 years. Where are the bodies?

  12. Aluminum siding on your house can reduce signal strength.

  13. Thank you senator

  14. Thank you Senator Blumenthal for showing courage, sharp wisdom and serious concern for your country ! Please keep up your good work !

  15. The FDA is no good and hasn't been for decades. Same with the FCC. they lied right to his face. They know it's dangerous just like the President does. They're BANKING on it.

  16. Billions of dollars and no dollars for independent risk studies?!

  17. Can’t we all just destroy the towers they put up? I mean.. there are MANY of us. It doesn’t make sense to support 5g AT ALL. I don’t know how anyone is arguing this.

  18. Blumenthal gets MONEY from CTIA , this hack is on their side; follow the money.

  19. Well… Mr. Gillen stutters after being asked a question, and is very fidgety with his hands. Body cues tell a lot. Pay attention to the language he uses such as, "committed to safety", in a desperate attempt to save face. Fortunately for us he conceded, by saying, "There are no industry back studies to my knowledge right now." The solid truth really comes out in this video about 5G and wireless… If the industry is afraid and wary of funding research about safety and health risks about wireless technologies then they already know the truth. Also, the elites are being exposed to this wireless radiation. They should do something about it themselves if they care about their health.

  20. Bloomingdale is a thief of better men's valor a liar a coward a traitor and a jew who wont call out omar for antisemitic acts call him out shout him down run him out of politics fuck him

  21. What a loon! Really?
    Fake news!!!
    Is this CNN?

  22. 5G is unnecessary, not worth the cost and possibly very dangerous for ones health

  23. He said 5 times faster and they agreed with him. They don’t even know what they are pushing

  24. When you test a weapon, you don’t test for safety. G5 is a weapon.

  25. Isn't this guys that said something about a space threats?

  26. i like this senator!!!

  27. Thank you Mr. Blumenthal! We need to push the whole congressional people to find out the risk of 5G to human and environment. And what about the smart meter, invasive and dangerous technology on our homes without our consent, introducing the risk of fires and explosions ( SM has not surge), duty electricity, in home spying, health harm, bills skyrocketing?…
    Many people aren't aware that their home already has the SM or the risk that Smart killers are about.

  28. Why have research and studies when you can use human beings and other animals as the guinea pigs. It's capitalism, money is all that matters.

  29. It will NOT increase anything?? It is a weaponized tool to destroy lives…nothing more…

  30. If there is corporate profits at stake, nothing the public says will matter. People are about to discover how low they rate…..plus if it creates more health issues, then Big Pharma, Inc gets to collect more also.
