Subject: Invitation to Live Event- Pittsfield Cell Tower Order

Register For Our LIVE Event: A Conversation With Pittsfield Families About the Emergency Cease and Desist for Verizon Cell Tower by the Pittsfield Board of Health 

Soon after a large cell tower was powered up in the City of Pittsfield Massachusetts, residents living near the tower reported health issues. They took the issue to the Board of Health. The Board investigated the issue for over a year and determined that there was credible evidence that the radiation emission from the cell tower was linked to the health effects in the residents. 

Join us for a live conversation with several Pittsfield residents to discuss the order and next steps for the community. We will record the event.

Event: The Pittsfield MA Cell Tower Order 
Time: Thursday at 10 a.m Eastern
Newly Published Science From the Environment and Cancer Foundation
The study "Measurements of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, including 5G, in the city of Columbia, South Carolina, USA" published in the World Academy of Sciences Journal found the high RF exposure readings were registered close to cell phone base station antennas mounted on top of utility poles, street lamps or traffic lights. 

The study "Very high radiofrequency radiation at Skeppsbron in Stockholm, Sweden from mobile phone base station antennas positioned close to pedestrians' heads" published in Environmental Research concluded that "antennas should be positioned as far as possible from the general public." 

The study Electromagnetic hypersensitivity close to mobile phone base stations – a case study in Stockholm, Sweden published in Reviews on Environmental Health presented the case of a woman who developed a series of health problems after moving to an office with high EMF exposure. The symptoms were compared with published scientific studies showing detrimental effects from EMFs on humans, animals and biological material.
