Questions Raised About 5G Health Risks Months Before Sacramento Launches Service
According to the National Cancer Institute,
“A limited number of studies have shown some evidence of statistical association of cell phone use and brain tumor risks.”
The City of Sacramento partnered with Verizon to offer 5G. A spokesperson told CBS13 the City of Sacramento currently has six active 5G sites- all are on SMUD utility poles:
- 1731 E Street / 18th St., Sacramento, CA | map
- 1619 E Street / 17th St., Sacramento, CA | map
- 421 14TH Street / Democracy Alley, Sacramento, CA | map
- 2330 Q Street / 24th St., Sacramento, CA | map
- 2019 21ST Street / Tomato Alley, Sacramento, CA | map

Sacramento issued a statement to CBS13:
“Sacramento continues its emergence as a leader and innovator and will be the first scaled commercial practical implementation of 5G in the nation. It is this type of innovation that will enable residents to experience gigabit speeds that were previously only available via costly fiber. Technologies like 5G promise to revolutionize the daily lives of people. The City plays an important role and is actively working to streamline the development processes and effectively and efficiently pave the way for innovators like Verizon to implement technologies that will drive economic vitality, decrease the digital divide, serve our diverse communities, and forward the mission of the City for all.
Some cities, including Santa Rosa, have put their 5G plans on hold to prevent health hazards from occurring.
