The Dangers of 5G

By now, most of us are used to hearing about advancements in mobile communication technologies. In particular, we have progressed through several generations of such technologies since the 1970s – from 1G, or first generation, to 4G – and most of us have been hearing about upcoming 5G mobile communication technology for some time now. Promising though it may sound, however, 5G mobile communication technology could be the most serious human health hazard to arise in decades; read on to learn more.

A Brief History of Mobile Communication Technologies

Mobile communication technologies have evolved through the years as follows:

  • 1970s to 1980s – 1G – 2Kbps speed
  • 1990 to 2004 – 2G – 64Kbps speed
  • 2004 to 2010 – 3G – 2Mbps speed
  • Now – 4G – 1Gbps speed
  • By 2020 – 5G – More than 1Gbps

Unbeknownst to most people, 5G technologies have been under development for several years already. In fact, many government defense agencies have developed the technology for things like crowd control. The U.S. military has employed millimeter waves, or MMWs, which are used in 5G, to develop crowd dispersal guns. Known as Active Denial Systems, they pelt people with MMWs that make their bodies feel like they are on fire.

Additionally, live testing of 5G technologies has been underway for some time. From AT&T to Charter to private companies like Oracle, Sprint and HTC, many organizations have been experimenting with 5G in preparation of it potentially “going live” as early as 2020.

4G vs. 5G

Some of the top differences between 4G and 5G technologies include:

  • Speeds – 4G technology tops out at bandwidths of around 6GHz while 5G relies on bands in the 30 to 300GHz range. When applied to video latency, this translates into speeds that are 60 to 120 times faster than 4G.
  • Absorption – While 4G MMWs travel on the surface of the skin, 5G MMWs have been shown to be absorbed into the dermis and epidermis of the skin, which then rises in temperature.
  • Towers – Current 4G cell towers stand around 90 feet tall and contain around 12 antenna ports. 5G towers, or bases, are only around 4 feet tall and contain upwards of 100 ports.
  • Transmission times – 5G technology breaks data down and sends it in smaller sizes. As a result, it offers significantly reduced transmission times. With 5G, there is only a 1 millisecond delay versus a 50-millisecond delay with 4G.
  • Radiation emission – While 4G continuously emits radiation, 5G offers “radiation on demand,” which implies that it should be safer. However, smart devices continuously send out beacons even when not in use.
  • Beamforming versus blanketing – 4G technology essentially emits a “blanket” of radiation. 5G technology, on the other hand, uses beamforming – also known as phased array – to pinpoint connections. However, multiple beams work together to produce a concentrated focus that actually results in more radiation.

Because 5G towers will broadcast higher frequency signals, which dissipate more quickly, many more towers will be needed. In fact, rather than towers, 5G will mostly be broadcast via small bases that are expected to be mounted on everything from traffic lights to people’s homes. As a result, we will all be far closer to these antennas than we ever were before – and on a pretty much ongoing basis.

Studies Highlight Dangers of 5G Technology

Thus far, thousands of studies have linked wireless radio frequency radiation exposure to a number of health risks, including:

  • oxidative damage
  • disruption of brain glucose metabolism
  • DNA single- and double-strand breaks
  • increased blood-brain barrier permeability
  • disruption of cellular metabolism
  • generation of stress proteins
  • melatonin reduction

Studies have also shown potential links between this type of radiation and the following conditions:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • cancer
  • chronic fatigue
  • miscarriage
  • infertility
  • brain tumors
  • depression
  • autism
  • heart disease

Potential Dangers of Upcoming 5G Wireless Technology

As numerous studies have shown, upcoming 5G technology poses a variety of serious risks to the health and safety of everyone on our planet. These include:

  1. Eye Health – A 1994 study showed that low-level radiation exposure caused lens opacity in rats’ eyes – a precursor to cataracts.
  2. Skin Health – Studies have shown that the body’s 2 to 4 million sweat ducts become more conductive when exposed to MMWs. As a result, more than 90 percent of the power is absorbed into the epidermis and dermis of the skin.
  3. Cellular Growth – A 2016 Armenian study examined the effects of MMWs on E. coli and other bacteria. The study showed that such exposure stunted the growth of these bacteria while affecting their properties and the activities of their cells. Could the same effects apply to human cells?
  4. Heart Health – A 1992 study out of Russia showed that exposure to MMWs in the 53 to 78GHz range impacted heart rate variability in rats, which can be an indication of stress
  5. Bacterial Resistance – The 2016 Armenian study also showed that exposure to MMWs appears to alter bacteria’s sensitivity to biologically active chemicals like antibiotics. This could potentially result in an increase in antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which could pose severe health risks for the human population.
  6. The Atmosphere – To make 5G a reality, a new type of hydrocarbon rocket engine is required to launch satellites into space. Because these satellites have much shorter lifespans than previous ones, many additional deployments will be needed. These new rockets emit black carbon that could impact global atmospheric circulation as well as the distribution of temperatures and ozone across the world.
  7. Plants – MMWs that are used in 5G technology are highly susceptible to absorption by plants and rain. Thus far, it is unclear how this will impact things like the safety of food on our planet.
  8. The Ecosystem – Since around the year 2000, when advancements in wireless transmission technologies really escalated, studies have shown that many birds are abandoning their nests and exhibiting other unusual behavior. Similarly, bees that are exposed to MMWs may suffer from reduced egg-laying capabilities among other issues. These types of things can have unpredictable and irreversible effects on Earth’s ecosystem.

Join Us in Raising Awareness About the Dangers of 5G

Because 5G technology will be such a cash cow for so many, those who are developing it don’t like to discuss or even examine its potential health risks. Given how well-documented these risks have been across so many studies, this should be highly concerning to all of us.

While most are keeping quiet, a few experts have been speaking out, including respected members of the International Agency Research on Cancer and the Global Union Against Radiation Deployment from Space, or GUARD, which submitted a letter to the FCC in September 2016 outlining the potential risks. You can join us in helping to raise awareness too – visit our website for more information. https://www.5gspaceappeal.org/the-appeal

Dangers of EMF and RF

Dangers of EMF and RF

Health Effects of EMF and RF:

Medical equipment such as x-rays emits stronger frequencies. The result is ionized radiation which can disturb atoms and molecules in our bodies which can harm us.

The vast number of technology users means we now exist in a sea of low electromagnetic fields (ELFs) and more complex higher intensity radio frequencies (RFs).

All of this has created a great deal of controversy and very serious health concerns. Scientists and researchers have conducted many assessments and studies since 1987 to determine the effects of electromagnetic fields on living organisms.

Even though the conclusions of many earlier studies showed safe exposure rates, scientists acknowledge the phenomena is a growing concern because of the massive amount of EMFs and RFs present and continuing to spread across the modern world.

Our homes and schools expose young children to wireless mobile phones, computers, and internet radiation waves every day.  A 2017 report published by the University of Toronto declared the use of smartphones or tablets before the age of two increased the risk of speech delay.

Our complex central nervous system regulates human behaviors and our ability to learn. Research has established a risk to fetal and early childhood nervous system development by EMF exposure.

A study completed in 2018 by the “National Toxicology Program on Cell Phones and Cancer” confirmed the evidence of DNA damage and cardiac tumors.

Computer screen exposure has caused eye problems such as dry eye, eyestrain, blurred vision, double vision, retinal damage, and cataracts.

Recent studies have shown a direct correlation between EMFs and cancers of the head, neck, brain, lymphoma, thyroid, kidney, liver, and parotid gland tumors.

Infertility risks increase with continued exposure to EMFs and RFs.

The cancer rates of children and teenagers are growing at an alarming rate in correlation with wireless technology. Many of the cancers of children are brain tumors and childhood leukemia.

Exploratory research in 2018 showed EMF and RF exposure may interfere with our memory and contribute to behavior issues. The research suggests constant wifi exposure may threaten other important biological processes such as cell cycles, cell signaling, DNA repair, and immune system responses.

Many people with close exposure to wireless technology describe electrosensitivity experiences. They report a variety of symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, headaches, rashes, dizziness, tinnitus, vision changes, muscle twitching, irritability, concentration impairment, depression, anxiety, and other neurological and neurobehavioral conditions.

Protect Yourself and Your Family From EMF and RF Damage:

• If you use wireless devices, turn them off when they are not in use. Even when the wireless devices are sitting idle, they are constantly sending and receiving a signal.

• EMF strength increases when the phone continually attempts to reach the service, so it is safest to avoid mobile phone use when the signal is weak.

• Hold your mobile phone away from your body, including your torso because of the danger of exposure to reproductive organs. The speakerphone option or a wired headset is safest. Distance from the electromagnetic source decreases the intensity and effect. Turn the power off before carrying the mobile phone on your body.

• Metal enclosures and metal surroundings reflect the radiation waves, so do not use your mobile phone or other wireless devices in those situations. Keep this in mind when traveling or driving. The inside environment of your automobile increases the EMF radiation.

• Text when possible, instead of talking because it will lessen your exposure.

• You can find federal government minimum distance recommendations in your mobile phone manual.

• Because many of the new gaming equipment devices, televisions, and computers emit radiation even if you leave them powered on, it is best to remove the power source entirely such as unplugging the device or removing the batteries.

• Do not charge your mobile phone or keep screens in the bedroom.

• Remember to blink and look at something different for twenty seconds away from your screen at least every twenty minutes to avoid eye damage.

• Keep electronic devices away from children as much as possible. Do not carry your phone or tablet in the baby stroller.

• If your children want to watch movies during your trip, plan ahead and download the movies before you leave, so they do not need to download them on the road.

• Because children’s brains are still developing, and their skulls are thinner, they should not talk on mobile phones.

• Whenever a child plays with a mobile phone, laptop or other electronic devices, set the Wi-Fi to OFF, the Airplane mode to ON, and Bluetooth to OFF.

Choose Wired Technology:

• For all of your home electronic accessory devices such as printers, speakers, mouse, game stations, controllers, and the internet, chose to connect with a cable rather than using the wireless version.

• Use a wired system for long phone calls and longtime use of computers or games for the least amount of exposure.

• If possible, choose a wired modem, instead of wireless. If you use a wireless modem, check with your internet provider to find out what signal distance has been set for your device. They set most to about 100 meters or 328 feet. If that distance is unnecessary in your home, ask your provider to turn the distance down to the distance required.

• Corded landline phones do not emit radiation, and are safer, so whenever possible, use your landline phone instead of your mobile phone. Cordless home phones emit EMF just as mobile phones do. They emit radiation whether they are in use or not.
