The conference was held in the Room 1B of the Legislative Office Building in Hartford at 11 a.m. Monday morning.

Senator Blumenthal  was joined by Paul Salisbury and Blake Levitt to discuss the possible cancers risks by 5G wireless technology

The latest wireless technology relies on new antennas and transmitters that are clustered lower to the ground and closer to homes and schools.

Despite early evidence of possible cancer risks posed by some wireless frequencies, the Federal Communications Commission has thus far refused to investigate.
