By now, you may have seen articles on Facebook or alternative health websites about 5G network speeds. The gist: 5G is a dangerous escalation of traditional cellular technology, one packed with higher energy radiation that delivers potential damaging effects on human beings. Some 5G pundits contend that the new network generates radiofrequency radiation that can damage DNA and lead to cancer; cause oxidative damage that can cause premature aging; disrupt cell metabolism; and potentially lead to other diseases through the generation of stress proteins. Some articles cite research studies and opinions by reputable organizations like the World Health Organization.
There have been multiple people protesting the accountability of 5G in causing health problems. There were several protests, most of which was promoted through multiple Facebook pages.
The protesters claim the coming omnipresence of such waves in the environment will lead to a wide series of harmful effects including memory loss, miscarriage, obesity, autism, ADHD and asthma, although provide little evidence to support these claims.
“100 times more radiation, 100 times more harm!” one sign said. Anyone digging into that flyer further will find information like this:
Every Death Tower Surpasses Bio-initiative Safety Standards.
With the GQ EMF-390, you can see the dangers before your very eyes. You’ll see who is getting dosed, and you’ll be able to discover the hidden dangers lurking in your home.
The EMF-390 detects Electric fields, Magnetic fields, and RF radiation.
These Death Towers are not Safe, and you must act now to Protect Yourself and Your Loved ones.
But the reality is that 5G is just as harmful as the Wi-Fi at your house, the current 4G and 3G before that, the Television signal all around your city as well as radio signals. The Food and Drug Administration and the FCC say there’s nothing to be worried about. Most studies haven’t found a link between radio frequency signals from cell phones or cell towers and disease, the agencies say. But in 2011, the World Health Organization said cell phones might -and that’s a big might- cause some brain cancers, leaving open the possibility that a link exists between cancer and cell phone radiation.
Dr. Steven Novella, an assistant professor of neurology at Yale and the editor of Science-Based Medicine, understands that people generally get concerned about radiation. “Using the term radiation is misleading because people think of nuclear weapons—they think of ionizing radiation that can absolutely cause damage. It can kill cells. It can cause DNA mutations.” But since non-ionizing radiation doesn’t cause DNA damage or tissue damage, Novella says that most concern about cell phone RFR is misplaced. “There’s no known mechanism for most forms of non-ionizing radiation to even have a biological effect,” he says.
Something you should worry about:
The high-frequency 24Ghz bands that some upcoming fast 5G will be used to produce top speeds are quite close to the 23.8Ghz area that meteorologists use to measure water in the atmosphere. This is because tower equipment may not be precise enough to not interfere with the lower bands when power is pushed higher than -20-decibel watts per 200 megahertz. When amplified to these power levels for maximum coverage, the signal can become noisier and get in the way more.
With a little imagination, it’s easy to see the kind of problems that can come from not being able to accurately measure the weather. As predictions suffer, people in severe weather conditions may not have the best information to decide. Staffing for crews that respond to weather conditions on roadways may not have the resources in place as quickly with a less accurate prediction.
Only time will tell the exact impact of the interference, but the major impact on mobile users might be a reduction in signal strength in the faster, high-frequency bands. Hopefully, carriers will work to make sure their equipment does as little damage to measurements as possible.
