SAFE MA BROADBAND AND ELECTRIC
The following written testimony was provided, additional to spoken testimony, in 2021 for bills that were killed.
Massachusetts needs to insure modern electricity and communications are safe.
RECORD SHOWS SUBSTANTIAL HARM
Substantial evidence exists in the research record that radiofrequency emissions from electricity and wireless communications cause biological changes such as increased oxidation (ROS) leading to downstream effects including calcium release, mitochondrial, DNA, and neuronal damage.
Effects are found from exposures from wireless and near electricity. The FCC even recognized in [Order 19-126], which denied biological effects and was just overturned by court order, that electric fields can cause instant “neural stimulation effects” unrelated to heating and that current guidelines fail to provide protection (328).

The following was provided to MA legislators in a 2021 hearing, yet the bill was killed.

SUPPORTING STRONG STANDS FOR THE PEOPLE AND EVERYONE
By Kirstin Beatty
Updated 21 July 2021, 6 April, 14 September 2022
Note: The article originally here has been moved and can be found here.
When you examine the civil rights movement, there wasn’t talk among the African-American community of letting the legislators form a commission to discuss how to dole out civil rights. The civil rights movement went ahead and said we want decent health care, transportation, and housing – equal treatment.
I’m upset that the movement in Massachusetts for safer electronics and communications has failed to unite with similarly strong demands, from our personal to our group choices. What can we expect when lacking a strong stand?
