Environmental Health Trust (EHT) v. FCC
"The FCC guidelines are the basis for the '5G and wireless are safe' lie, which enables the uncontrolled proliferation of this extremely harmful technology that is responsible for widespread sickness, death and environmental harm … this case was the only way … to expose the fraud underlying [these] guidelines."
-- Dafna Tachover,
Attorney for Children's Health Defense
US Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit finds the FCC Violated Federal Law
The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled, in EHT et al. v. the FCC, that the December 2019 decision by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to retain and apply its 1996 safety limits for human exposure to wireless radiation was "arbitrary and capricious." The court held that the FCC failed to respond to "record evidence that exposure to RF radiation at levels below the Commission's current limits may cause negative health effects unrelated to cancer."
Contrary to the requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), the FCC failed to provide a reasoned explanation for its assertion that its 25-year-old guidelines adequately protect against the harmful effects of exposure to radiofrequency radiation, including 5G. A large number of individuals, organizations and scientists brought these harmful effects to the FCC's attention during the public comments period, authorized under federal law, but the FCC, without explanation, totally ignored them.

Summary and Documents
Verizon and other telecoms hide behind the FCC's claim that 5G is safe. However, the FCC has ignored the scientific evidence that 5G and other RF radiation is harmful. The Environmental Health Trust brought a consolidated (with the Children's Health Defense) lawsuit against the FCC to force them to look at the over 1,000 scientific studies showing that 5G and other RF radiation is not safe.
