Before approving 5G base stations, local officials need to consider the abundance of independent scientific studies showing its serious health effects (Can You Hear Me Yet?, Jan. 11). More than 31,000 people have signed an international appeal at to the United Nations, the World Health Organization, the European Union, the Council of Europe and the governments of all nations to stop 5G on earth and in space.

The petition notes: “Despite widespread denial, the evidence that radio frequency radiation is harmful to life is already overwhelming. The accumulated clinical evidence of sick and injured human beings, experimental evidence of damage to DNA, cells and organ systems in a wide variety of plants and animals, and epidemiological evidence that the major diseases of modern civilization — cancer, heart disease and diabetes — are in large part caused by electromagnetic pollution, forms a literature base of well over 10,000 peer-reviewed studies.”

Everyone is being harmed with no legal recourse due to the lifting of all regulations on the telecommunications industry by the Federal Communications Commission in 1998. All plant and animal life on earth stands to be devastated by pulsed fields from at least 20,000 satellites being launched without our consent to blanket the globe and the atmosphere.

Without access to our intended 7.83 Shumann Resonance, which has been called Mother Earth’s natural heartbeat (see the documentary Resonance — Beings of Frequency), we will not be able to experience the health that is our birthright.
