Scanzano Jonico is going to be the first city without 5G technology. Following the Major's decision, no infrastructures shall be installed and no test on 5G shall be authorized.
The decision has been taken on the basis of a number of documents, for example, the EU resolutions that in 2009 and 2011 certified "electromagnetic field sensitivity" as a handicap. The ordinance goes on quoting the studies by Rea 1991, Havas 2006 e 2010, McCarty 2001, on the possibility to diagnose this condition in some individuals. Last but not least, quoting the TAR of Lazio sentence (n.d.r.: Regional Court of Administration) that asks for "information campaigns aimed to reduce risks for health and environment linked to improper use of electronic/telephonic devices".
"This being said wants to pinpoint the fact that 2/3/4G connections were unsafe, but 5G will be even unsafer for human health if compared to previous G standards (according to the Major's statement and ordinance).
A short extract of the ordinance (ndr: original photo following the link above, I can translate all the document for the interested ones)
5G uses microwaves at higher radiofrequencies thant previous connection standards, aka as "millimetric waveleghts", that imply two main things:
1: higher amount of transmitted energy to radiofrequency receivers (such as human skin, bone, tissues in general;
2: less penetration of the radiowaves throught walls and solid barriers in general, thus leading to a necessity of installing multiple beacon repeaters for 5G in order to cover all the area.
Millimetric wavelengths seem to be the source of the fear of 5G as a serious health concern. Many groups born on the Net state that the tests run by some companies (Vodafone, Wind-3…) are not legitimate. Scanzano Jonico adopted the same idea, thus replying to this "menace" with the previously quoted ordinance.
It'll be now necessary to understand whether other municipalities will follow the same path or if the public interest in 5G will prevail.
On the other hand, as stated in the ordinance,
"5G radio frequencies are widely unexplored, with a complete lack of preliminary study about health and environmental damage that could derive"
The irony of this fact is similar to the question "which came first, the egg or the chicken": how do we get to now that 5G is dangerous if we do not allow its experimentation?
