As Big Telco companies rush blindly forward rolling out faster, better, smarter 5G radio-frequency technology, more voices are being raised about the health hazards this brave new untested world allegedly brings.
At stake is a possible $12.4 TRILLION income stream – make that a flood- that will benefit international telecommunications corporations that envision “a transformational step change that will make it a general-purpose technology (GPT)” out of 5G.
If you missed the memo, 5G stands for 5th Generation wifi service used by cell phones and other “smart” devices that can send and receive signals tuned to specific wavelengths (frequencies). Major telecom corporations are installing hardware capable of handling 5G, whether local communities want it or not.
In April 2019, some Swiss cantonal governments blocked issuing permits for new antennas or put a halt to new 5G development. “But the telecoms bought the 5G licenses from the federal government,” reported a consumer watchdog organization called Take Back Your Power. The telcos also repurposed existing antennas to support 5G.
What’s wrong with 5G, you ask?
The International Association of Firefighters has been warning about the dangers of 5G on fire stations after multiple firefighters developed health problems. Dr. Gunnar Heuser performed a pilot study on firefighters at a station with cell towers and concluded:
“These firefighters developed symptoms. The symptoms included problems with memory, problems with intermittent confusion, problems with weakness.”
Radiation experts explain that 5G is bad mojo because of recent studies and information link this “non-ionizing” radiation with cancer, infertility, and DNA damage – especially in babies and the unborn.
The problem has to do with the crazy-high bandwidth that 5G uses:
“Remember within the Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, the higher the frequency the more dangerous it is to living organisms.”
The consuming public has been told by the Big Telcos that the new 5G tech ranges between 24-90 GHz RF Radiation frequencies and may go as high as 300 GHz – the upper limit of the microwave frequency range. Compare that to prior cellular generations that emitted from 1-6 GHz frequencies.
5G frequencies have shorter wavelengths so more of them radiate outward than slower, longer waves. This means that many more “ultra-high frequency” 5G waves strike our bodies in the same amount of time as 4G, 3G, 2G or 1G.
Couple that with a saturation effect in the works that will compensate for signal unreliability introduced by the shorter 5G millimeter waves (MMV) that – get this – don’t travel as far as previous generations by increasing the current number of cell towers and adding “mini cell towers” to boot. 3G and 4G will have to be emitted to cover up for the deficiencies of 5G.
If the major telecommunications providers get their way (as they seem to be doing), the landscape will be littered with cell towers – not a pretty sight.
The American Cancer Society (ACS) quotes the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as saying that 5G is “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”
You read that right. And that conclusion was based on a single study that linked cell phone use with a brain tumor.
The fact is that, for reasons unknown, the American healthcare industry seems unconcerned that blasting 5G radiation might not be good for humans and other living things. Certainly, the telcos don’t give a hoot about consumer safety. Their mission is to show profits for their shareholders.
The ACS really copped out when they stated matter-of-factly that “it is very unlikely that living in a house with a smart meter increases risk of cancer.” Based on what evidence? According to the ACS, testing 5G safety is beyond human reach:
“It would be nearly impossible to conduct a study to prove or disprove a link between living in a house with smart meters and cancer because people have so many sources of exposure to RF and the level of exposure from this source is so small.”
Sure. Believe that if you want. But scientists know how to set up controlled conditions to test a single variable at a time. You’d think the folks over at the ACS would know that. Is that why we don’t have a cure for cancer after decades of expensive research?
With trillions of dollars riding on successful 5G deployment, its sponsors aren’t interested in testing its safety on the general public. Unfortunately, they are the only ones available to test this proprietary radiation technology. How many injured plaintiffs will it take to shut down 5G until it has been tested and approved for human consumption?
Only time will tell.
