On March 27, 2019, global telecommunications provider Sprint turned off one of its new 5G cell phone towers after a shocking rise of reported cancer cases in the vicinity. The telco plans to move the cell tower to another site.
Parents of students enrolled in Weston Elementary School, part of the Ripon Unified School District in California’s San Joaquin County, have maintained for years that the powerful radio frequency (RF) transceiver, capable of sending and receiving high-frequency signals – radiation – was directly responsible for multiple cancer cases among students and staff.
What is 5G exactly? Mercola explains:
“5G technology relies primarily on the bandwidth of the millimeter wave (MMW), which is primarily between 30 gigahertz (GHz) and 300GHz, known to penetrate 1 to 2 millimeters of human skin tissue.”
MMW has been associated with numerous potential health problems, among them:
- Eye damage
- Impact on heart rate variability (an indicator of stress)
- Suppressed immune function
- Depressed growth and increased antibiotic resistance in bacteria
Three county teachers and four school children have been diagnosed medically with different kinds of cancer in the past three years. But there’s more to this story:
“Two preschool-age children have been diagnosed with a malignant tumor and leukemia. Another family claims that their 22-year-old son who attended the school had a brain tumor surgically removed.”
The first case reported was Kyle Prime who was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2016 when he was 10 years old. His father Joe said of the experience:
“It’s one of the hardest things that I’ve been through.”
The second case was diagnosed five months later. Mason Ferrulli passed the now-shuttered 5G cell tower each day as he walked to and from Weston Elementary. His mother Monica said a doctor had called the type of tumor Mason had was “100 percent environmental” and not caused by a genetic defect. The grieving mother said, “It’s indescribable, it’s really tough.”
Two additional Weston Elementary students were diagnosed with cancer in 2019, prompting Joe Prime to observe:
“It just seems like coincidence is no longer a reason for all this illness.”
Prime echoed the sentiments of many Americans when he said that “Kids shouldn’t be guinea pigs and we shouldn’t be taking chances with the children’s lives.”
The school district had paid for radiation tests on the 5G installation and residents were assured that all was well and within federal standards. But some parents, still unsure, hired an outside consultant to re-measure the radiation levels in the area.
Electromagnetic radiation specialist Eric Windheim said:
“I wouldn’t send my kids there at all, it absolutely is dangerous. Children are still developing and their cells are still being divided. It’s the worst possible time in their life to be exposed.”
Windheim revealed how much stronger and wider-reaching is the radiative power from 5G as compared to a regular WiFi signal:
“Instead of only going 300 yards like regular Wi-Fi, Y-Max can go 30 miles.”
Local parents got no action from Sprint until they complained in March 2019 that their school district received a $2,000 monthly kickback to permit the tower from the telco giant. Prime commented:
“It’s a real disappointment that it’s taking moms of sick children and dads of sick children to come out and say something needs to be done.”
Monica Ferrulli was one of the Ripon school district parents who lobbied for the removal of the Sprint 5G tower for two years. She described her transformation during the official process:
“I was actually very hopeful at first, but after going to school district meetings, I had lost a lot of hope.”
Ferrulli called the recent shut-down of Sprint’s irradiation tower “admirable” and said, “We have eliminated one factor that could cause the students to be unsafe.”
Mason Ferrulli had numerous brain cancer treatments two years ago and his condition had gone into remission. He has relapsed recently and is undergoing a new series of brain cancer treatments. His mom shared her and the other parent’s commitment to the rest of their community:
“There’s a lot of kids that we love that still go to the school, so we are fighting for them.”
Acknowledging the potential threat to health and safety posed by cell phone radiation, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) advises parents to “limit their children’s use of cell phones.”
Speaking for the AAP, Jennifer A. Lowry, M.D., FAACT, FAAP, and chair of the AAP Council on Environmental Health Executive Committee educated parents about cell phones:
“They’re not toys. They have radiation that is emitted from them and the more we can keep it off the body and use (the phone) in other ways, it will be safer.”
If one little cell phone is that dangerous, is it so hard to imagine that a monstrous, non-stop, 30-mile blanket of unseen 5G radiation could cause cancers?
You can bet your bottom dollar that we’ll all be hearing more horror stories about victims of 5G, the untested radiation technology that the federal government is sweeping across the nation – unless we put a stop to it by letting our elected representatives know it’s not okay to gamble with (and profit from) the health and well-being of entire communities, much less defenseless and vulnerable little children within them.
