I just found this article from the South Rivers Bulletin, August 1991, under the headline, ‘1G to be replaced’.
‘Two-G [2G] is being rolled out in Australia with no public consultation! A nuclear-medicine resource stated that 2G will result in a massive increase in cancer and other diseases from the absorption of wireless radiation. Everybody who uses 2G will get brain tumours within five years. The output from hand-held mobile phones and base stations will result in headaches, dizziness, and an inability to think logically about things scientific.
‘Science America in July had that all new computers, sound systems, refrigerators, cassette players, car radios, toasters, taxis, radio stations, TV stations, hospitals, police stations, jaffle irons, and automatic garage doors will be emitting perilous amounts of electromagnetic radiation [EMR] and 2G would exacerbate those effects.
‘Local physicians advise that everyone should limit their exposure to these appliances to a few seconds only each day. Children and teens are at the greatest risk of EMR damage of 2G. It is claimed that millions of them will have the disease “Screentimus” within the decade.
‘At least five people including a vet and a retired radiographer have signed a document opposing the rollout of 2G technology. Hawaii recently halted the upgrade of 2G citing the dangers of the salt spray from the huge surf carrying EMR to mainland USA.
‘What to do? Attend the protest rally at the silver-winged Telstra Tower at the corner of Ewingsdale Road and Bayshore Drive in Byron on Saturday.
‘A World Health Organisation spokesperson predicted there would be millions of deaths from mobile phones because 2G would have a new application called “texting, which is like a personal telegram,’’’ she said,
‘When drivers use their phones and drive cars, death rates from accidents will increase alarmingly.’’’
My cat was only 15 when it died six years ago and I am sure it was due to 3G. Now I am worrying about the ramifications of the 2022 8G rollout.
