(BALTIMORE – April 28, 2020) – Ten days ago, a Facebook post began gaining widespread attention. A Baltimore man, BrotherMooco Bamn, reported off-the-chart radiation readings on Mosher Street in West Baltimore.
The clip raises questions about 5G in the community. It is entitled, “Ok I we need some damm answers Jack young”. While experts suggest that 5G is no threat to people, environmentalists, activists, conspiracy theorists and others are not buying it.
In Ohio, for example, Jessica Rauscher decided to take a stand. Unimpressed with the phenomenal possibilities of 5G technology – one that allows downloads of movies in seconds, Rauscher is highly concerned about the effects of 5G on people. In short, she wants 5G cell towers totally banned in Ohio.
Hence, she launched a petition on Change.org.
Here’s her reasoning: There are scientists who affirm “[n]umerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plant and animal life.”
In a recent column in The New Yorker, “The Dangerous Coronavirus Conspiracy Theories Targeting 5G Technology, Bill Gates, and a World of Fear”, Amy Davidson Sorkin writes about the current nexus between 5G and COVID-19. To say the least, it’s not making an already tenuous situation any better.
“Over Easter weekend, arsonists set more than twenty 5G cellular towers in the United Kingdom on fire—forming a pattern of bunny-eared infernos that points to one of the many conspiracy theories surrounding the spread of the novel coronavirus. The basic idea is that 5G, a new generation of wireless communication, is responsible for the coronavirus crisis, and the idea has spread rapidly. ”
So, while some, like Trevor Noah, view 5G as a much-needed technological advancement, there are a lot of questions that need answers before the world is fully accepting 5G technology.
