First Aid Courses
The UK Parliament held a Westminster Hall Debate on the safety of 5G following Glastonbury Town Council’s resolution to oppose the roll-out of 5G under the Precautionary Principle. Glastonbury’s historic motion read: This council has a social responsibility to protect the public and environment from exposure to harm, albeit unpredictable in the current state of scientific knowledge, and therefore opposes the roll-out of 5G in the Parish of Glastonbury – based on the precautionary principle – until further information is revealed from a newly convened 5G advisory committee (working group). Having declared the intention to convene a working group to support the Councillors in their understanding of the implications of 5G technology, members of the public with an interest and/or expertise in the subject are being invited to apply to join the group.
A presentation given by Dr Mallery-Blythe in July this year on the health implications for 5G and other EMF forms of pollution:
