NYC Approves More 5G on Streetlamps, Traffic Poles, and Fiber Despite Health Impacts and Technical Issues


The first 5G moratorium request from doctors and scientists was issued in 2017.  In 2018 5G technology was installed in some New York neighborhoods anyway and residents and their pets immediately started experiencing symptoms from exposure.  This was reported on social media by Dr. Naomi Wolf.

Since 2018, more health issues have been reported where 5G has been installed and turned on (see 1, 2, 3).  This is to be expected.  In February 2019 the telecom industry admitted they have NO scientific evidence that it’s safe and many doctors and scientists have been warning that it isn’t.  Engineers have also warned that base stations tend to overheat.  How not safe is that?

Regardless, misinformation about safety has been reported by many publications including the New York Times who coincidentally partnered with Verizon for a 5G Journalism Lab in 2019.  Because of reporting misinformation, one NYT reporter is now being accused of violating a truth and accuracy code by the Press Council of Ireland.  (LMAO)

In December 2019, another 5G moratorium request was submitted to President Trump.  Regardless, the American “Race for 5G” continues thanks to many of elected officials and government employees.  Now New York City has approved 5G in streetlamps, traffic poles and also fiber for 5G.

From FierceWireless:

Recently, the New York City Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications approved 10 franchise agreements with several companies to install 5G equipment on streetlamps and some traffic-light poles.


Allowing wireless equipment on its streetlamps isn’t something new for New York City. It’s been allowing this for 15 years. The effort has resulted in nearly 6,000 pole installations — with 5,000 more in the pipeline — by franchisees throughout the five boroughs.

Of course all sources of cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation – 1G through 4G – are also biologically and environmentally harmful.  Pollution from all sources of Electromagnetic Radiation (“Electrosmog”) was also a big problem before 5G.

Unfortunately, The “Race for 5G” promotes and allows for hundreds of thousands if not millions of radiation-emitting small cells to be installed anyway as well as satellites being sent into space to blast 5G at Earth.  Worldwide opposition continues to increase because of this.  In fact, some cities and countries have banned it.
