CONCORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On Sunday, January 12, 2020, from 2-5 p.m., Concord Safe Technology, in collaboration with The EMR Network, will host an Expert Panel, "Wireless Technology in Our Midst: How Wi-Fi, Smart Meters, Cell Antennas and 4G/5G 'Antenna Densification' Present Risks to Health, Privacy, Security and the Planet" at the Willard Elementary School, 185 Powder Mill Road in Concord. Admission is free.
The objective is to educate local citizens and governing boards in Concord, MA about the little understood health and privacy risks, and other unintended consequences from:
- placing radiating wireless routers in Concord’s new middle school and new children’s room at the Concord Free Public Library;
- placing radiating wireless "smart" meters on homes;
- placing radiating cellular antennas on municipal infrastructure in residential neighborhoods;
- risks from 4G/5G "antenna densification", expected to present significantly greater health and mental health risks from higher frequencies, greater intensity of pulsations, closer proximity of small cell antennas, and from new indoor exposures from the Internet of Things (IoT).
Virginia Hines, Director of The EMR Network says,
"The public deserves the full truth about wireless radiation, including the well-established cancer and neurological risks, and a range of other serious health, privacy, security and planetary consequences."
