We are a volunteer-run national organisation advocating for the health and wellbeing of our communities, children, future generations and the natural world through common sense principles around the use and implementation of wireless technology in Ireland.
There is a vast amount of independent peer-reviewed scientific research that shows a strong link between many modern diseases and our exponentially increasing exposure to non-ionizing RF radiation from wireless devices (cell towers, mobile phones, Wifi, smart metres, etc)—yet with a multi-billion dollar tech industry in favour of low safety standards and low regulations, we as communities need to advocate for safety standards that protect our communities and children.
Ill health or diseases that have been linked to RF non-ionizing radiation include, but are not limited to cancer, Alzheimer’s, auto-immune conditions, mitochondrial dysfunction, ADHD, hormonal imbalance, autism, and infertility. Some symptoms that have been link to such: decreased immune function, headaches, insomnia, and miscarriages.
We, as a concerned group of people in Ireland, strongly advocate for use of the precautionary principle in protecting public health by halting any implementation of wireless technology including 5G and smart meters until more independent peer-reviewed research confirms or denies the link.
In Ireland our safety standards for RF radiation are 21 years old and are based on industry-fed research that only takes into account the thermal effects of radiation. To protect our communities, children, and natural world we need to update these standards to acknowledge the vast body of data regarding the very real health effects of non-ionizing RF radiation that is growing every year. We are advocating for policy that puts the health of our communities, children, and the future generations as the main priority in societal ‘progress’. For the truest wealth is the health of our communities.
WHAT ARE OUR CONCERNS?
The safety standards by ComReg are 21 years old and are only based on a limited body of industry research from the 1950s and looked at heating effects only.
With the growing independent research connecting many serious health effects from our unavoidable exposure to RF radiation from 2G, 3G, 4G, and WiFi,our communities and especially our children do not need another cocktail of non-ionizing radiation.
There has been no research or safety studies on 5G alone, nor from the combined exposure to 5G and already existing RF radiation from 2G, 3G, 4G and WiFi. If 5G is installed it will be working alongside all the previous generations of wireless technology.
No environmental evaluation or assessment from 5G has been undertaken.
5G will massively increase the man-made broadband microwave and millimeter wave radiation in our environment—affecting all forms of Life.
5G will include new & untested frequencies high millimeter wave frequencies (MMW) not evaluated by scientists for their safety for public health and previously only used in the military. The millimeter waves do not travel easily through buildings or trees; thus, 5G infrastructure will require thousands of new “small cell” antennas to be installed throughout Ireland. In urban areas, there will be a small cell antenna every 3-8 houses (roughly every 100-250 metres).
Safety standards in America are 6x stronger than that of Ireland, and in Russia 1000x stronger!
