The Epoch Times has just posted an interesting article regarding the microwave syndrome and some pretty amazing ways to prevent it. Check out the main ideas below.
It must have been quite unexpected for Andrew Molnar to find himself caught up in local political activism. He and his wife, Marie, are now champions for the cause of ensuring that their beloved town and city of Ithaca, New York, have control over the placement of wireless facilities within their jurisdictions. Their journey began about four years ago when they went on a hike at Cornell University’s Cornell Plantations park and both experienced nasty headaches.
“We looked around, and there was this huge new cell tower about 100 yards from us,” Mr. Molnar, a Cornell graduate, told The Epoch Times.
“We got out of the area, and within about 10 minutes, we both felt totally better again.”
The Molnars are among millions of Americans who suffer from electromagnetic sensitivity, commonly referred to as microwave syndrome. People with this condition may experience symptoms such as dizziness, insomnia, pain, and changes in mood and memory when they are exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from power sources and wireless signals emitted by phones, cell towers, and new small cells.
5G and small cells
Recently, wireless facilities, including small cells, have been appearing frequently in residential and commercial areas. Two types of wireless facilities exist: cell towers, also known as macro cells, which can reach up to 200 feet in height, have up to 20 antennae, and cover a wide radius of several miles; and small cells, which are much smaller, relay signals, and cover a more limited range of a few hundred yards up to about 2 miles.
Small cells are the backbones of the 5G network
During the 5G rollout, small cells were quickly installed to maintain connections as 5G signals have a higher upper frequency and require antennae at closer proximities. These small cells can be found on lamp posts and utility poles along the sidewalk, and some people have discovered them outside their homes.
Although small cells emit 5G signals, they also emit 3G and 4G signals which have been shown to be harmful. This means that people are exposed to denser and stronger wireless radiation, potentially increasing health risks. Numerous papers have documented the adverse health effects of these signals on residents.
Dr. Lennart Hardell, a retired oncologist from Orebro University Hospital in Sweden, has released three case studies (pdf) that feature individuals living near newly installed 5G small cells or base stations.
One of the core objectives of Verizon in 2020 was to request a master license from the city of Ithaca to prevent the installation of redundant cell towers. Mr. and Mrs. Molnar first became aware of this initiative after returning from Europe in 2019, when they observed people signing a petition to stop the approval. “That’s when we heard about it,” Mr. Molnar stated.
