"The gigahertz RF frequencies Google is using are close to terahertz frequencies, known to “unzip” DNA. These are very powerful frequencies. This will affect all living beings. The most vulnerable to DNA damage will be babies in utero, children and teenagers, who are going through rapid developmental changes at the cellular level."

Google’s secretive Project Loon has a launch on Jan. 1 across the U.S. These will be cell towers in the sky across America. There have been no public hearings, and very little public awareness except in the tech world. No local or state permits have been granted. Most seriously, there has been no discussion on health impacts from this universal and increased radiation exposure, and there is no informed consent from the public.
Google has requested permission from the FCC, but apparently this is a mere technicality. Nowhere in Google’s FCC license application is any mention of RF emissions levels or FCC compliance. In fact, there isn’t much information in their redacted application. However, the frequencies they do list cause very serious problems for all living things. RF — radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation — was declared a possible carcinogen in 2011, and more recent research indicates it should be reclassified as a definite carcinogen. RF also damages DNA by a variety of mechanisms.
In addition, the gigahertz RF frequencies Google is using are close to terahertz frequencies, known to “unzip” DNA. These are very powerful frequencies. This will affect all living beings. The most vulnerable to DNA damage will be babies in utero, children and teenagers, who are going through rapid developmental changes at the cellular level.
Radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation has a wide range of health impacts. This year, over 200 scientists sent a letter to the United Nations and the World Health Organization warning about the public health hazards, and the Health Committee of the Canadian Parliament held three days of hearings, with a subsequent article in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. In 2011, the Austrian Medical Association issued guidelines for treating EMF-related diseases.
The Santa Clara Medical Society Alliance Foundation just hosted a symposium on wireless radiation and public health risks in Mountain View.
Scientists and medical professionals internationally are warning the public about wireless radiation. Expect much increased cancers, tumors, developmental problems and birth defects for those who survive. Miscarriages and stillbirths will soar, as will neurological disease, dementia and deaths.
The hush-hush nature and speeded-up application for license, as well as Google’s connections to government, make the extent of this project and its goals questionable. Former British Secret Service microwave expert Barrie Trower warns that the frequencies used for Wi-Fi, including in schools, are the same frequencies used in microwave weapons developed by the military and used at least since 1959. The government is well aware of the harmful effects. They cause neurological and physiological damage. They cause infertility. Trower warns that wireless radiation is the new thalidomide, far surpassing it in toxicity.
Project Censored discussed the use of electromagnetic weapons during the Gulf War in a 2006 report. As part of its secretive psyops program, the U.S. broadcast frequencies that caused mass surrender by Iraqi soldiers. Iraqi War veteran and investigative journalist Will Thomas has written about frequency weapons. “Poppers” in Iraq caused serious effects including incapacitation and violent behavior. Who is guarding the henhouse?
Google’s Loon program has no transparency and provides universal coverage with no place to escape. What a powerful weapon in the hands of the government allied with a powerful corporation. This is truly full-spectrum dominance. Brains and ambition are a dangerous combination. Google’s recent move to sanitize information in Google searches shows it does not advocate for freedom of information or true democracy.
Unlike zoning codes which may prohibit cell towers from parks and scenic easements, and near schools, hospital, rest homes, day care centers and residential areas, these cell towers in the sky will blanket everything, everywhere. The Department of the Interior warned in 2014 about impacts to birds from cell tower radiation. The government of India published a report saying the impacts to humans were well known and showing the impacts to bees, birds and wildlife. Other countries have taken action to toughen standards and warn about the impacts.
How can Americans be so ignorant?
Our government has conducted many experiments on the public. Most weren’t discovered until decades later. The feds blew up a nuclear reactor 1965 in Nevada to test the effect on Los Angeles. Biologicals were released over San Francisco, resulting in at least one death. Hanford’s green runs and continuing leakage is causing widespread damage. Plutonium was fed to children. Smallpox-contaminated blankets were given to Native Americans by the U.S. government. Mycoplasmas were tested on prisons and nursing homes in Texas, and the military used live anthrax in Germany this year.
Law and morality mean nothing. The School of the Americas in Fort Benning, Georgia, has trained Latin American death squads and teaches torture. Roughly 90 percent of the victims of U.S. drone strikes are not terrorists. Everyone is experimental fodder and acceptable collateral damage in the eyes of this government and its allied corporations. We are all “bug splats.”
The lower frequencies included in Google’s FCC application include those used by MRI machines. Those RF frequencies cause protons in our bodies to become radio transmitters, “for the acquisition of anatomical images.” Google will provide surveillance opportunities across the entire U.S.
This is a very dangerous program with extremely damaging, even incapacitating capabilities, and the complete extent is unknown. It endangers all of us to the core of our existence. Project Loon must be stopped now before it is deployed anywhere.
