Letters from the US Congress to the FCC asking for documentation of 5G safety

May 16, 2019


Letters from the US Congress asking for documentation of safety in regards to the 5G rollout and questions about cell phone radiation. 

Letter from Rep DeFazio and Rep Suozzi Letter to  the FCC on Chicago Tribune Study – 9/13/19  

Letter from Senator Richard Blumenthal (Connecticut) and Rep Anna G. Eshoo (California) to the FCC 12/2018

Letter from Rep Thomas Suozzi (New York) to the FCC 4/2019

Letter from Rep. Peter A. DeFazio (Oregon) to the FCC 4/2019

Letter from Senator James F. Gaughran (New York)  July 23, 2019 

  • “My constituents are concerned that until they can be sure that living in close proximity to cell antennas will not cause adverse health effects, we would like to see these “small cells” shut down and removed from our neighborhoods. We are also concerned with the long-term 24/7 exposure to 2G, 3G, and 4G that are currently in our neighborhoods. They are especially concerned with the more vulnerable populations such as children, fetus in the womb, and the immune compromised.”

Letter from Representative Andy Kim (New Jersey) to the FCC 4/2019

US FCC Chairman Pai’s Response to Members of Congress Regarding the Potential Impact of 5G Deployment on RF Exposure

FCC Chairman Pai has a dedicated FCC webpage on 5G safety with all of  his letters responding to Congress.

Letter from the FCC to Senator Richard Blumenthal (Connecticut) and Rep Anna G. Eshoo (California) 

Letter from the FCC to Rep Thomas Suozzi (New York) 

Letter from the FCC to Rep. Peter A. DeFazio (Oregon) 

Letter from the FCC to  Representative Andy Kim (New Jersey)

In a 2019 US Senate hearing on 5G where Blumenthal asks industry representatives about any research on the human health impact of 5G wireless technology and was told that industry is not supporting such research.

“I believe the American people deserve to know what the health effects are…We are flying blind here on health and safety”.

– Senator Richard Blumenthal

Scientific analyses show industry funding can and does influence research on radio frequency radiation. Please take the time to review each of these  studies and to review the documentation provided by experts. This webpage has published citations on the influence of industry and vested interests (scroll down). Please also be aware of these investigative reports on industry influence which summarize the issue:

Informative Investigative News Stories  over the Years

Investigate Europe’s Two Part Investigation on 5G: 5G The Mass Experiment (Part 1) and  How Much is  Safe? Finances Effect Research (Part 2) This must read  report in 2019 covers the 5G rollout and the history of industry influenced research on EMFS.

“At least three studies over the years have documented that there is often a link between conclusions of studies and the source of the money that paid for the research. Science funded by industry is less likely to find health risks than studies paid for by institutions or authorities….Studies which are solely financed by industry are likely to be biased” – Investigate Europe, 2019 Investigate Europe alleges the existence of an “ICNIRP cartel.” The journalists identified a group of fourteen scientists who either helped create, or defend, the EMF exposure guidelines disseminated by ICNIRP, a non- governmental organization (NGO) based in Germany. ICNIRP’s self-selected members argue that the thousands of peer-reviewed studies that have found harmful biologic or health effects from chronic exposure to non-thermal levels of EMF are insufficient to warrant stronger safety guidelines.  “The ICNIRP Cartel: Who’s Who in the EMF Research World,” an interactive graphic developed by Investigate Europe (German ICNIRP Cartel). Dr. Moskowitz PDF of ICNIRP Cartel Is the industry aware of the health effects?  Yes. For example, the  2000 Ecolog report commissioned by T-Mobile and Deutsche Telecom MobilNet GmbH describes the the science showing biological effects from cell phone radiation including gene toxicity, cellular processes, effects on the immune system, central nervous system, hormone systems and connections with cancer and infertility. The report states that:

  • “Given the results of the present epidemiological studies, it can be concluded that electromagnetic fields with frequencies in the mobile telecommunications range do play a role in the development of cancer.” “Impairment of cognitive functions was found in animal experiments at power flux densities of 2W/m2. In humans, there are indications that brain functions are influenced by fields such as they occur when using a mobile telephone.” “An epidemiological study of children who had been exposed to pulsed high frequency fields, found a decrease in the capability to concentrate and an increase in reaction times.” “Effects of high frequency electromagnetic fields on the central nervous system are proven for intensities well below the current guidelines.
