Current efforts by the industry to roll out 5G cellular networks across the US heightened the interest in TUC radio programs. Especially what medical Doctor Devra Davis reported regarding tests commissioned by the Chicago Tribune in August 2019. Results showed that radio-frequency radiation exposure from the most popular smartphones measured higher than the legal safety limit. The way most users carry smartphones on their bodies and hold them close to their skull when they talk sends more radio-frequency radiation into their bodies than they know.

What this may mean for our children is addressed by Katie Singer at the beginning of this talk. She also lists the most energy demanding parts of the internet and how much embodied energy exists in all aspects of production and distribution.

Katie Singer is the author of An Electronic Silent Spring, Facing the Dangers and Creating Safe Limits;  and the forthcoming Our Web of Inconvenient Truths: The Internet, Energy Use, Toxic Waste and Climate Change - How on Earth Do We Shrink the Internet’s Footprint?

She was interviewed at the Jan 25 to Feb. 3, 2019, conference of the the HIPPOCRATES HEALTH INSTITUTE by Ben Zeitlin.

In 2015 Katie Singer gave a talk at the Colorado Chautauqua in Boulder. She opened with a memorable account on how human beings, like all living beings including plants function by electro chemical signals. Even at rest all cells have measurable voltage. Ever since the beginning of the electric power grid about 140 years ago, we have nearly saturated our environment with electrical and magnetic frequency fields and amplitudes that do not exist in nature. With 5G the industry is planning to exponentially increase the exposure. Are we overpowering our innate life giving electro chemical signals that keep our heart pumping and our brains functioning with these new frequency fields? This program closes with a brief excerpt of Katie Singer talk in Boulder in April, 2015.
