Live updates: Anti-5G protest takes place in Bristol city centre
Ian Usher, Mark Simmons and Lucy Harper are all concerned about the environmental and health risks of the new 5G mobile data network being run out across the UK. If you do an internet search on 5G you will most likely find the dispute between the UK and US about whether or not to use Chinese Huawei hardware in the new network but the real debate is whether or not the network is needed at all. It would consume enormous amounts of electrical energy because of the higher intensity waves used which have to be boosted to go through walls etc. where fibre optic cables would be much more suitable. But it is with health risks that all three are most concerned and they explain this technology has simply not been tested for its affect on living tissue which, from lower power waves, is already known to damage to living cells.
The group supply some of the best links to published research about the health risks of 5G (5G Coverage Checker) (Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe) Article on Exposure of Insects to Radio-Frequency Electromagnetic Fields from 2 to 120GHz Zothansiama et al Impact of radiofrequency radiation on DNA damage and antioxidants in peripheral blood lymphocytes of humans residing in the vicinity of mobile phone base stations. Electromagn Biol Med. 2017; 36: 295-305. 2005; 60: 838-839 Pall, M. Electromagnetic fields act via activation of voltage-gated calcium channels to produce beneficial or adverse effects.

Amirah Cole and Ornella Sabine from Save the M32 Maples join us with an incredible tale of a gang of paid vandals who have been cutting down mature maple trees on Lower Ashley Road for a private developer. There is a 24 hour watch now on the trees, two of which were chopped down on New Year's Eve
