  1. 5G and small cell tower installation has been protested all over the world by doctors, scientists, environmental groups and more. On March 22, the FCC voted to exclude installations of 5G equipment from the National Environmental Protection Act and the National Historic Preservation Act. These laws require federal agencies to evaluate and minimize the impact of new development on the environment and historic properties. Samsung will be selling indoor 5G routers very soon. Communities that don’t want small cell towers installed everywhere shouldn’t be forced to accept them.
    Unfortunately “The Race for 5G” allows The Telecom Industry (aka Big Wireless) to install small cell towers in front of homes and pretty much everywhere else despite the fact that decades of research has already proven that exposure to all sources of wireless WiFi radiation is harmful to people, pets, nature, and wildlife. This includes 5G millimeter waves.
    All over the world there are community leaders, elected officials, and government employees also ignoring “The Precautionary Principle” and welcoming small cell towers.
