“Sprint is moving fast on the road to 5G and we are thrilled to announce the first 5G smartphone with the innovative team at LG,” John Saw, Sprint’s chief technology officer, said in a press release. “LG has done tremendous work developing technical designs that enable us to be among the first movers in mobile 5G.

    Everyone knows Big Tobacco lied about cigarettes.

    Big Oil lied about climate change.

    This is the third leg of the stool: How Big Wireless is using the same exact playbook to deceive the public and create the appearance of scientific uncertainty, making people think 5G is safer than independent science suggests.

    Despite the fact that the wireless industry’s own scientists privately warned decades ago there were “serious questions” about wireless radiation’s links to cancer and genetic damage.
