Cell Towers & Fires

A jam-packed PDF with vital, credible, and strategic info that is both footnoted and linked regarding telecom fires and ratepayers already having paid for future-proof fiber. A great resource to share -- especially with elected officials and agencies. 

Emailing a .pdf and/or sharing the .pdf online (full screen) during a Zoom will generate maximum visual and lobbying impact. When printing as a handout, orient the layout to landscape/horizontal.

Thanks to Susan Foster and eyemind concepts; “Works of Arc” for this great resource.

Swisscom AG patent filed 2003 “When … human blood cells are irradiatead with electromagnetic fields, clear damages to hereditary material has been demonstrated and there have been indications of an increased cancer risk … These findings indicate that the genotoxic effect of electromagnetic radiation is elicited via a non-thermal pathway.”
