U.S. Congressman, Andy Kim (NJ), Discusses 5G Safety Issues in Letter to FCC
On March 28, 2019, U.S. Congressman Andy Kim (NJ-3), wrote a letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to expose the agency's blatant failure to asses the safety of 5G technology prior to enabling its widespread implementation.
"As you know, current regulations governing radiofrequency (RF) safety were put in place in 1996 and have not yet been reassessed for newer generation technologies. Currently, the FCC's specific absorption rate (SAR) limits only apply to devices operating at frequencies up to 6.0 GHz. However, 5G technology operates at frequencies at and exceeding 24 GHz, which requires numerous small cell sites to be densely installed close to homes, schools, and workplaces. Despite the close proximity to sensitive areas where these high-band cells will be installed, little research has been conducted to examine 5G safety."
