John Mack - Newtown Supervisor
Residents Discuss 5G Technology Safety

The safety of 5G cellular technology was discussed at the March 22, 2021, Meet Mack Monday Zoom meeting. A resident asked prior to the meeting: "Is 5G a topic that has been or will be discussed by Newtown Zoning or other? Are 5G emitters/masts allowed to be close to schools?"

The discussion focused on the 5G antennas on top of the Newtown Artesian Water tower located less than 500 feet from Goodnoe Elementary School and many nearby homes.

In this 15-minute excerpt from the discussion, a resident living nearby the tower claims the 5G radiation from this source has caused medical problems for her and her children. The discussion also covers what the township can do to mitigate this problem and a new FCC rule that would make it even worse (see embedded article below)!

Mack's Newtown Voice · 5G Technology Safety Discussion

"We Have No Reason to Believe 5G Is Safe," says Joel M. Moskowitz, PhD, director of the Center for Family and Community Health in the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley. That is the title of his opinion piece published on the Scientific American blog.

"The latest cellular technology, 5G, will employ millimeter waves for the first time in addition to microwaves that have been in use for older cellular technologies, 2G through 4G," says Dr. Moskowitz. "Given limited reach [1,000 feet], 5G will require cell antennas every 100 to 200 meters, exposing many people to millimeter wave radiation."
