Oregon for Safer Technology (OST) is a grassroots public-interest group advocating the need for biologically-safe digital technology in our homes, schools, and workplaces. Our hundreds of hours of research over the last 3 years, from sources worldwide, confirms that radio frequency radiation (RFR) from wireless technologies is harmful to us and all life forms.
Why be concerned about exposure to RFR?
The U.S. National Toxicology Program report of 2018 confirmed that RFR exposure can cause cancer. Furthermore, many people unknowingly suffer from electro-sensitivity (“microwave sickness”) with ailments such as insomnia, fatigue, poor memory, anxiety, tinnitus, heart palpitations, cold extremities, joint pain, reproductive problems, and more.
Who isn’t concerned with climate change?
TELECOM, which is aggressively pushing their 5G agenda on us. 5G requires a serious increase in our energy burden. As reported in the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Spectrum article, “5G’s Waveform is a Battery Vampire” . . . “A lurking threat behind the promise of 5G’s delivering 1,000 times as much data as today’s networks is that 5G could also consume 1,000 times as much energy.”
How will 5G harm bees, trees, and birds?
The Environmental Health Trust (ehtrust.org) reports that insects and birds are dying at an alarming rate from exposure to RFR. Tree canopies are damaged by this exposure, and tree removal is often required.
Why get involved?
