Health matters, especially during a pandemic. Yet, Rutland’s downtown and students’ homes are being outfitted with 4G/5G antennas by VTel. Other Vermont towns are also in line for telecom’s Trojan Horse.

What’s so concerning about even more of telecom’s antennas surrounding us from inside our steeples, houses, silos and light poles? After all, we have antennas, too, such as cilia — the antennas of our cells, and the sweat duct’s helical antenna. That is the problem.

Our natural antennas are impacted by the man-made, pulsed, electromagnetic waves radiating from aptly named cellular and Wi-Fi antennas. The man-made signals change our natural cellular processes.

Experts, such as Dr. Martin Pall, Washington State professor of biochemistry and medical science, are scrambling to wake us up to the facts.

Viruses replicate more rapidly when hit with this unnatural pulsation and radiation. Immunity is lowered. Respiratory illnesses intensify. Those are each gateways for COVID-19. Telecom’s radio waves also increase the likelihood of other psychological, cognitive and physical suffering, including dying from pneumonia.

Is this what we want for our children, for ourselves?

We have better options. For example, students who are already expected to park in hot-spot parking lots to download their assignments could just as easily (and safely) download from a fiber-optic-cable station.

Faster, more reliable and secure Fiber-to-the-Premises (FTTP) could be offered at less long-term cost and vastly less energy consumption. There simply is no justification for choosing to expose Vermonters to wireless radiation. None.

Despite these facts, Gov. Phil Scott has empowered Microsoft Corp.’s massive deployment of less reliable and less secure radio wave antennas across Vermont. Our airwaves and scenery will be canvassed with digital clutter — even blimps and electrosmog. That is the governor’s vision for Vermont. Is that ours?

School boards and other leaders need to hear from us. They assume we consent if we are silent. I firmly believe Vermont can, and should, do better, and the time is now.

The VTel antennae in Rutland are 4G.

Rutland is installing 5G. " We're delivering free wired and wireless Internet to kids without Internet wherever we can. In Rutland, we took it a step further by implementing an immediate upgrade, using our 5G spectrum, to ensure students of Rutland who may not have access to Internet could receive some of the fastest unlimited wireless Internet in America.

Easton CT just voted to stop the expansion of 5G until independent and comprehensive testing can be done. Has everyone noticed that the Covid hotspots correspond with the place 5G is being rolled out first? Wuhan, Princess Cruises ( first with 5g) , Italy, NYC, could it be that the 5G is affecting the recipients ability to fight off covid? Shouldn't we find out before subjecting VT to it?
