      I had a friend that worked on cell towers. They have to shut them down to make them safe to work on. And if they are going to spread out a continues grid of more powerful transceivers. Moving them closer to the ground and in every direction. This does not sound healthy. Oh, and by the way, my friend is now dead from cancer. That and half the people I know have some form of cancer. My mom, me and two brothers included in that. Soon aliens will wipe us all out. Not to take over but done as a mercy killing. We have their free will. Too bad we never learned how to survive it. Reminds me of the BS story of the lemmings Mutual of Omaha did. Mite have been a BS story but everyone believed it because we could identify with it. With the only difference in the story being, we are walking off the edge because we are distracted by an incoming call we think need to have.

      I wonder what will happen if Huawei is owned and controlled by America. I believe America would promote the same Huawei technology to allies without hesitation.

      It is Fundes AND amplified by money/Investors ...this money and Investors DONT KNOW what a WEAPON AGAINST HUMAN HEALTH they support. Its always the same and yes i am worried and i will move to every place that is at least 1% More save from milimeterwaves than every other place. This will also include to live as a human without using a mobile phone. If it will be illegal in future to live without a phone and being 100% digital controlled i habe no problems to go on AS a illegal individual and i will protect myself against others that are supporting this threat just ouf the NEED OF MONEY

      In addition to speeding up games on your device - pulsed microwaves can also heat your processed poison marketed as "food."
