Ripon, CA — As 5G technology begins to roll out across the country, it is being met by a massive wave of resistance over concerns that it can cause health problems. While 5G is still relatively new, concerns over 4G and older technology still persist as well. A school in California has taken things to the next level and removed a cell tower from their campus after several students and teachers were diagnosed with cancer.

Since 2016, four students and three teachers have been diagnosed with different forms of cancer at Ripon Elementary. Also, two smaller children — too young to attend school — who live near the school tower, have been treated for a malignant tumor and leukemia, and a 22-year-old former student has recently undergone surgery for a brain tumor.

“I think it is admirable,” Monica Ferrulli, a parent of one of the children with cancer said. “I was actually very hopeful at first but after going to school district meetings I had lost a lot of hope. We have eliminated one factor that could cause the students to be unsafe.”

Ferrulli’s son, who attends Ripon elementary, spent two years trying to get the district to remove the tower after her son was diagnosed with brain cancer.

According to the Modesto Bee:

Various studies have concluded the electromagnetic fields created by cell towers can cause cancer. The American Academy of Pediatrics has advised parents to limit their children’s use of cell phones.

The school district and Sprint have cited independent tests showing the tower met safety standards. Parents have said it’s possible the different pediatric cancer cases near the school site could be tied to another cause.

According to Ferrulli, the school district has collected samples to test the soil and water at Weston.

On the website for Ripon Unified School District, administrators noted that Sprint is complying with their request, saying, “Sprint has turned off the cell tower at Weston Elementary School and is moving forward with leasing, permitting and deploying a new site.”
