Re: Micro-cell transmitters concern some residents (Gazette, Oct. 21)
Every time I hear of the electromagnetic hypersensitivity theory I remember a case in South Africa where people claimed they were getting sick from a radio tower – that had not been turned on yet. They were psychosomatic. An old Russian maxim states the mind can have a conversation with the body that results in death.
As for the Highlands, there is cellular service (some transmitters are in View Royal and on Finlayson Arm), WiFi is everywhere in the form of routers in homes and probably smart meters.
ll have similar frequencies to the high end of cellular. The low end of cellular is closer to frequencies used by radios on Capital Regional District and municipal utility equipment. I’m concerned for the children who may not get treatment for an actual illness because their caregivers falsely blame radio signals.
If the scare-mongers don’t want the fill-in service that micro-cells provide in the treed topograhy here, many people elsewhere would be happy to take it. One has really helped me.
