Let There Be Lawsuits! Insurance Underwriters Have Refused to Cover The Tech Industry for 20 Years.
By B.N. Frank
A November 11, 2018 article from Global Research provides more details about the eventual inevitable: “Radiation From Mobile Phones Can Cause Cancer? Insurance Underwriters Refuse Industry Cover, Legal Cases Underway.”
Activist Post also has reported about insurance companies not covering exposure from digital, electronic, and wireless devices and infrastructure. This Global Research article is worth sharing because writer Graham Vanbergen provides a timeline as well as references crucial information including an article from The Observer published in 1999 that stated: “Lloyd’s underwriters refuse to insure mobile phone manufacturers against the risk of damage to users’ health.”
OMG! 20 years ago?!
That article was unequivocally clear. The insurers had: “fears mobile phones will be linked to illnesses such as cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.” Twenty years ago, the industry already knew their business models were a risk to the general public, especially because insurers were already refusing to cover their biggest liabilities. And as TruePublica reported yesterday in Dieselgate to Phonegate – the news was was very much kept under wraps by the industry.
After years of contradictory industry led evidence, in February 2015, Lloyds of London, one of the largest insurers in the world, finally made its position absolutely clear with regards to exposure to non-ionizing radiation. In acknowledgement to clarification, this response was received on Feb. 18 2015, from CFC Underwriting LTD, London, UK agent for Lloyd’s – published in an article by RFSafe.
“‘The Electromagnetic Fields Exclusion (Exclusion 32) is a General Insurance Exclusion and is applied across the market as standard. The purpose of the exclusion is to exclude cover for illnesses caused by continuous long-term non-ionising radiation exposure i.e. through mobile phone usage.”

So for 20 years now, insurance companies have chosen NOT to cover wireless radiation exposure risks. However, for at least some of this time, cell phone companies have been warning their shareholders – but not the public – that they may eventually be held liable for causing harm.
Mr. Vanbergen included more detailed information about the very hyped and very harmful 5G campaign as well as “electromagnetic radiation emitted from Smart Meters (AMR, AMI, PLC), from Home Area Network devices and appliances (including thermostats), from Wi-Fi transmitters, from wireless devices in schools, offices, and homes, and from wireless sensors and wireless-connected fire alarms.”
Activist Post and many others have reported about harm from exposure to these sources too.
Wrapping it up, the article also referenced examples of current and past cell phone lawsuits and then circled back to 5G:
The first 5G ready smartphones are due to be rolled out later this year irrespective of the known dangers and the general public’s mandatory exposure to it.
It’s unfortunate that lawsuits may be the only way to stop 5G and other forced harmful technology campaigns in the U.S. and everywhere else. Gateshead, England residents won a 5G lawsuit last year. However, they suffered tremendously while it had been installed in their community.
