The FCC states that we cannot stop this 5G rollout based on health concerns.
However, the FCC has admitted it has not conducted any safety studies on 5G and the current safety guidelines are based on a 1996 study.

Other cities (and countries) are starting to say no to 5G small cell towers until testing can be done with respect to health concerns.

Sprint has turned off a cell phone tower at a Ripon elementary school that parents suspect was the cause of cancer cases among students and teachers. Four students and three teachers at Weston (enrollment of 416 students) have been diagnosed with different forms of cancer since 2016.

I'm from Pleasanton. It is bad enough that NIMBYs have contributed to spotty cell coverage here in Pleasanton that could put people at risk if they can't contact emergency services due to poor coverage.

Now we have this fear mongering from "ConcernedCitizen". Of course there have been numerous studies showing that this technology is safe.

Stop the fear mongering.

There is a lot of data on the internet. Not all of it is fact based. If you would like some facts please go to Several cities in Central Contra Costa County are moving forward. I encourage you to participate in the democratic process. Let your representatives know you would like to see improved wireless services in your community.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
