Scientists For Wired Technology is a member organization that seeks to make effective, lasting changes to federal, state and local laws, regulations and practices that will protect people of all ages, and all living organisms from the hazards of continuous exposures to Radio-Frequency Microwave radiation (RF/MW radiation), which is a manmade toxic agent that causes systemic biological damages at levels many thousands of times lower than current U.S. RF/MW radiation exposure guidelines.

A 2011 article in IEEE Spectrum says that for the World Heath Organization, a working group of 31 scientists from 14 countries reviewed the latest research and classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields — from any source — as Group 2B, “possibly carcinogenic to humans based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer.” Citing Studies completed from 2011 to 2018, Dr. Lennart Hardell and other members from that committee are calling to change RF Microwave radiation to Group 1 — a definite human carcinogen.
Governor Brown vetoed California’s 2017 Small Cell Bill (Senate Bill 649), so, fortunately, all California cities retained their authority to regulate the operations of cell phone towers to protect residents’ constitutionally-guaranteed rights to privacy and safety. The last CA Cell Tower bill to pass was Assembly Bill 57 in 2015, which granted an exemption to fire stations because the Firefighter’s Unions entered substantial evidence into the public record that cell towers on or near fire stations caused brain abnormalities in every firefighter examined.
We need to halt this ill-advised Wireless-only project and enter into a public process that delivers the least intrusive means to get the fastest, most reliable and energy-efficient Internet access (Wireline fiber-optic service to our homes — without data caps) and to put any new Wireless antennas much farther away from our homes. Cell phone towers installed close to homes significantly reduces property values. A peer-reviewed study published in the 2005 Appraisal Journal, said homes near cell phone towers are devalued 20% to 25%.
