Letter: Would rather throw my cell phone in the river

Would rather throw my cell phone in the river

Re: “Majority want better cell service”, and “Cell tower opponents need tinfoil hats”, (Citizen, Feb. 3)

I take extreme offence to both these letters written to the editor. I am one of the opponents and apparently the wearer of said tinfoil hat.

I have been in the health care field for 30 years. I am a retired critical care nurse. Between COVID and now this nonsense I am reading, you obviously know nothing about the health ramifications of a 5G cell tower being built, let alone being 200 metres from my door. I suggest you do some research on your own about the effects of 5G cell towers and the real true effects of this on our health and our children’s health.

Even if God said that there will be no harm brought to anyone from these 5G cell towers, I wouldn’t want to even take a minute chance to find out what it “could” do years done the road. By then it would be too late. Would you want to gamble with your health? Or would you rather your reception on your cell phone work better? I would rather throw my cell phone in the river and jump in the poop swamp beside me you spoke of than have that cell tower go up here.

If you believe what the government tells you about the safety of the cell towers because they “care” about you, I can’t help you. Do not write about something you know nothing about.
