The National Frequency Agency (ANFR) of France has added radio frequency radiation measurement equipment to three locations in Paris. The ANFR says that these sensors have been operational since November 13 and are placed about 100 meters from 5G antennas, taking measurements periodically for a duration of 6 minutes, “at different times of the day and night “. The Cities of Marseille and Nantes already have these measuring sensors in place.

According to news coverage in CNET France ANFR installs sensors in Paris to assess the health impact of 5G the systems are designed by the EXEM laboratory and analyze the bands from 80 MHz up to 6 GHz, which also includes FM radio, Wi-Fi and TNT.

Members of the public can see the data online as it is published in the Observatoire des Ondes, which is accessible from the ANFR website.

France has several policies in place that reduce radiofrequency radiation in schools, educate the public on how to reduce radiofrequency radiation and measure radiofrequency radiation. A 2019 Order recommends phones be labeled to inform people how to reduce cell phone radiation with speakerphone and “Keep radio equipment away from the belly of pregnant women, and away from the lower abdomen of adolescents.”

After finding hundreds of cell phones exceed regulatory limits when tested in body contact positions- a scandel called Phonegate- , the Ministers called on the European Commission to strengthen the premarket test requirements for new mobile phones by ensuring cell phone radiation SAR tests be carried out in positions of (body) contact with the device, and not at 5 mm as is currently the requirement. 2019 Press Release

Worldwide numerous countries have programs to regularly monitor radio frequency radiation (RFR) levels in the environment and ensure the information is publicly posted for the public. These countries include France, Greece, Turkey, India, Israel, French Polynesia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Tunisia, Switzerland, Bahrain and Iceland. However the United States government terminated their wireless RFR field measurement program decades ago and the USA has no federal agency with a funded mandate that measures nor monitors RFR levels and the health and environmental effects of wireless from cell tower RFR.

Over 600 cities in Italy have passed resolutions to halt 5G, as have cities throughout Europe, such as Trafford, United Kingdom, Lille, France, Ormidia, Cyprus, Balchik, Bulgaria. The Pancyprian Medical Association and Cyprus National Committee on the Environment and Child Health sent Parliament their position paper “The Risks to Public Health from the Use of the 5G Network.” Bermuda has halted 5G pending a report on safety. Switzerland’s report on 5G health effects resulted in the Parliament’s refusal to loosen their radiation limits despite heavy industry lobbying efforts. The Netherlands issued a 5G report that recommended measuring radiation levels and also recommended against using the 26 GHz frequency band for 5G “for as long as the potential health risks have not been investigated.”

In the United States, the New Hampshire Commission to Study the Environmental and Health Effects of Evolving 5G Technology has released its final report recommending reducing public exposure to radio frequency radiation, measuring RF radiation levels and replacing Wi-Fi with wireless devices. Resolutions to halt 5G have been passed by Hawaii County, Farragut Tennessee, Coconut Creek Florida, and Easton Connecticut. Cities such as Los Altos,Petaluma, Mill Valley, and San Diego County California have adopted policies to restrict 5G small cells near homes. Oregon passed a Bill to study Wi-Fi health effects.

Hundreds of scientists and thousands of doctors are calling to halt 5G and reduce exposure to people and the environment.
