New Hampshire State Commission on 5G Report Documents Scientific Evidence and Recommends Reducing Exposure
The New Hampshire Commission to Study the Environmental and Health Effects of Evolving 5G Technology issued its final report to New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu on Friday, concluding that safety assurances for 5G have “come into question because of the thousands of peer-reviewed studies documenting deleterious health effects associated with cellphone radiation exposure.” 

The majority of the commission voted to support 15 recommendations to the New Hampshire governor.

Recommendations include: 
  • Support an independent study of 5G health effects.
  • Reduce public exposure to cell phones, wireless devices, and Wi-Fi in schools and libraries.
  • Ensure cell network infrastructure antenna setbacks from schools and homes
  • Measure levels of cell network radiation.
  • Establish wireless radiation limits to protect trees and insects.
  • Establish more sophisticated measurement protocols to include high data rates.
  • Require software changes to reduce radiation exposure into the body
  • Establish wireless radiation-free zones.
  • Call on the U.S. Federal Communications Commission to do an environmental assessment on the impact of 5G and wireless infrastructure expansion.
The FCC is a Captured Agency

The report referred to the FCC as a “captured agency with undue industry influence,” and cited the Harvard Press Book Captured Agency: How the Federal Communications Commission is Dominated by the Industries it Presumably Regulates, which compares the wireless industry to the tobacco industry. 

Protect the Environment

The 5G report recommends U.S. federal agencies coordinate “to protect people, wildlife, and the environment from harmful levels of radiation” and states "until there is federal action, New Hampshire should take the initiative to protect its environment."

Scientists Testified. The FCC and FDA Did Not.

Testimony was presented to the commission by numerous experts, including the US National Toxicology Program scientists Dr. Michael Wyde and Dr. John Bucher (PPT) who conducted the large-scale studies on cell phone radiation. The NTP study found clear evidence of brain cancer and DNA damage in animals exposed to cell phone radiation.

During the Oct. 31, 2019, meeting with NTP scientists, New Hampshire Commissioner Denise Ricciardi asked, "Your study was designed to test nonheating damage. You found damage so doesn’t that mean that FCC assumption that only heating can cause damage is incorrect and no longer accurate? Would you agree?" 

Dr. Wyde responded, "A lot of people believe unless you heat tissues, you won’t see health effects with RF. This study disproves that as we did not have overheating but we did see damage.

The FCC and FDA did not respond to the commission’s request for testimony, and the FDA did not fully answer the commission's questions. The National Cancer Institute told the commission that it does not make recommendations or issue guidelines and is not aware of any federal agency mandated to ensure wireless signals are safe for trees, plants, insects or birds. 
"The scientific research can no longer be ignored. We must reduce our wireless exposure. I commend the state of New Hampshire for taking the time to generate such an important and historic document,” said Devra Davis PhD, MPH, president of Environmental Health Trust.

Davis has published research documenting the scientific evidence indicating wireless is a human carcinogen and recently published a paper on cell phone radiation and colon cancer. She is one of the hundreds of scientists signing onto the Appeal to Halt 5G referenced by the New Hampshire Commission.

"This report should be required reading for all elected officials and community planners," she said. 

Davis pointed out that the New Hampshire Commission’s investigations confirmed the inadequacy of FCC limits to protect health just as the EHT et. al., v. FCC legal appeal claims.
