From: Andy Hooley

Dear Jacinda Ardern,

Please can you provide all sources of information citing studies, dates and names of researchers, their qualifications and conflicts of interest that the government have used to determine that 5G wireless technology using advanced 4G and newer 5G mm waveforms will be absolutely 100% safe for each of the following categories when it is deployed in the current environment containing 2G, 3G, and 4G frequencies.

a) A lady who lives in a townhouse 50 meters from a telecommunications base station transmitting 3G and 4G frequencies that is pregnant with a developing fetus approximately 100 days old.
b) An 8 year old female child who is walking down Lambton Quay in Wellington.
c) 23 school children in a classroom each with a wireless device connected at the same time.
d) A teacher in a classroom using WiFi that has 23 students all connecting to the wireless network at the same time.
d) A 68 year old female with breast cancer living in a Wellington CBD apartment.
e) A 73 year old male with Parkinsons disease living in a rest home 100 meters from a telecommunications base station emitting 700Mhz, 1800Mhz and 2100Mhz frequencies prior to 5G being installed.

Yours faithfully,

Andy Hooley

From: Andy Hooley

Dear Jacinda Ardern,

Thank you for the information regarding my queries on 5G. Your response, I find dismissive and diverts attention away from the fact that you have no risk assessments on any scenario regarding radio frequency exposure. If the information regarding exposures to my stated scenarios does not exist, how then can you conclude that all radio frequency exposures in high urban areas does not cause any harm or other biological effect? The standard NZS2772.1:1999 that you refer to is vastly out of date and is based on biased thinking from the 1960's that laid the groundwork for all standards to dismiss non thermal effects. RF and other frequencies of EMF are very well known to cause oxidative stress which leads to a cascade of biological changes. One such link to a study here. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/omcl/20... This is just one of thousands of studies concluding non thermal effects from EMFs.

Your comment regarding there is 'no good evidence that health effects are sensitive to modulation' is factually untrue and very misguided. The National Toxicology Program in the US conducted a very thorough study with US government funding which concluded in 2018 showed CLEAR EVIDENCE of tumors in rats and mice. This is just one of many exceptional studies that prove non ionising frequencies are harmful in the technology that is installed without public consent. Link here. https://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/results/areas/...

The 5G frequencies for low band technology may well be in a similar range to current transmitters, but what you also fail to mention is that more transmitters are being installed closer to homes, schools, kindergartens and hospitals. Are you ok with having a 3G, 4G and 5G transmitter close to your home? Or beamed into a school were children spend time? You also fail to mention the power density of such transmitters and the fact that this technology is being beamed into personal spaces without consent.

I do not consent to radiation from 5G.

Yours faithfully,

Andy Hooley
