Hazards of Wireless Technologies, 5G, and the IoT
Presentation at Dwight Foster Public Library in Fort Atkinson on March 3
Advertisements abound regarding the launch of 5G cellular service, the Internet of Things (IoT), and “smart” appliances and gadgets; however, research shows there’s a price to pay for wireless technologies of all kinds. There are proven negative effects on the health of humans, animals, plants, and the environment in general from radiation from wireless frequencies now saturating our atmosphere.
In addition to the direct health impacts of radiofrequency (RF) radiation, small cells, 5G, and IoT will require massive amounts of energy to send the vast amounts of data that industries hope to collect. 4G systems already use 23 times more energy than wired systems to transmit the same data, and 5G systems are expected to consume far more energy. The IoT will transform items that previously did not continuously consume energy into chronic energy consumers in order to transmit their data, greatly increasing energy production requirements and impacting climate change.
Catherine Kleiber, independent researcher and author from Waterloo, Wisconsin, will give a presentation on Tuesday, March 3, at 6:30 p.m., based on the research behind concerns raised by physicians, scientists and citizens from around the globe about the exponential increase in use of wireless technologies. This presentation will be held in the Community Room of Dwight Foster Public Library, 209 Merchants Ave, Fort Atkinson, WI, with doors opening at 6:15 p.m. The public is invited to attend and there will be opportunity for a question and answer session following the presentation. Admission is free and light refreshments will be served.
Kleiber has a background in zoology and molecular biology and is webmaster of www.electricalpollution.com. She has been raising awareness and educating about radiofrequency sickness (a.k.a. microwave sickness) since 2001 when she realized her health problems, previously diagnosed as chronic fatigue syndrome, were actually caused by environmental RF exposure from “dirty” electricity.
Since then she has worked to raise awareness about the serious adverse health effects RF radiation is already having for many people, as well as steps people can take to minimize their RF exposure, resulting in improved health for most people. She is also working to raise awareness about the grave environmental consequences of radiation from wireless technology, as well as the contribution its ravenous energy consumption is making to climate change.
