Small Cells, Cell Towers, Wireless Facilities and Health

Letters From Experts on The Impact of Wireless Antennas on Public Health 

 

Many people ask “What scientific research has been done on the radiation from small cell wireless facilities? What is the current scientific opinion of the scientists who are studying the issue?”  

The answer is that the scientists studying the health effects of 5G and wireless radiation are deeply concerned and are calling for a halt to the rollout of 5G and a halt to increasing radiofrequency radiation exposures to the public.

Please see on this page a short list of letters from expert scientists, doctors and public health experts sent to government officials regarding the issue of streamlining small cells in neighborhoods. In these letters scientists share the research supporting their opinion that wireless exposure to the public should be minimized and the deployment of small cell antennas into neighborhoods should be halted.

Many of these letters were written in response to the FCC’s Spectrum Frontiers and state bills such as California’s SB 649 that are streaming small cell deployment. (See a list of these US State Bills.)

Watch a Best Best & Krieger LLP webinar covering CA SB 649, and “what localities should be doing now to protect their interests — at the local, regional, state and federal levels.”

Webinar walks us through much of the legal infrastructure pertaining to cell siting both at the state and federal levels. Although this webinar focuses particularly on California and SB 649, there is much that can be applied to other states.
