Why Will 5G Radiation Be Dangerous?
The current portion of the frequency spectrum employed by 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE (what we currently have) is crowded, and may not be able to support the sheer quantity of devices coming online a day. This means that 5G will utilize millimeter waves, which haven’t been utilized in the past. The greater the frequencies the shorter the wavelengths. These wavelengths are more dangerous.
Further on in this article, we will cover a little more on millimeter wavelengths. The army uses them to disperse crowds, Ouch!
The shorter wavelengths also don’t travel as far or through objects. this suggests that 5G would require many thousands of small cell towers to compensate. You will probably see small microcell towers on street signs, light poles, on the edges of buildings, on homes, and almost anywhere else the telecom companies can legally place them. Not only will it have a way length higher that has a higher frequency, shorter wavelength sort of electromagnetic wave, but it will also even be in much closer proximity, increasing our exposure and therefore the danger. 4G LTE networks, simply use the resources to identify cell towers that are close to our homes.
Accordingly, this may likely be near impossible in the longer term with the sheer proliferation of 5G cell towers. Let’s talk slightly a bit about what 5G really is, so we can better understand why it would be exponentially more dangerous than our current 3G and 4G wireless.
Why is there a requirement For 5G?
So, if you’ve had a cellphone for quite a few years as I have, then you almost certainly are familiar with the numerous generations of wireless technology. 5G doesn’t represent 5 GHz, it stands for the 5th Generation of telecom wireless. 1G was the primary generation and essentially just allowed for analog voice between callers within the 1990s. 2G, which is referred to because the second generation allowed data to be sent within the sort of simple text messages. 3G allowed for high-speed internet through faster data transfer.
This gave us a connection to the online and opened a whole new world for smartphones. 4g expanded on this, allowing significantly faster data transfer. This allowed us to watch Netflix practically in the center of nowhere and made it possible to scroll endlessly through social media. Because of the stress of faster speeds, it had been realized that the 4G networks couldn’t continue the stress of recent day technology. Artificial intelligence is controlling more things from vehicles that are hitting the roads to other network demands.
The current network we have is not fast enough to meet these demands.
5G Radiation Danger
What we all know is that the deployment of 5G, or fifth-generation cellular technology, constitutes an enormous experiment on the health of all species. Because MMWs(Milli Meter Wave) are weaker than microwaves, they are predominantly absorbed by the skin, meaning their distribution is sort of focused there. Your skin contains capillaries and nerve endings, The millimeter-wave biofeedback, and bioeffects could even be transmitted through molecular mechanisms by the skin or through the nervous system.
5G will use high band frequencies, or millimeter waves, which can affect the eyes, the testes, the skin, the peripheral systems of your nervous and sweat glands.’ ‘Millimeter waves can also make some pathogens immune to antibiotics.
What Experts Are Saying About 5G Radiation
Along with the research, hundreds of letters have been sent by scientists, doctors, and researchers, to organizations around the world calling for a halt to the rollout of 5g. A group of over 250 scientists from around the world in 2017 wrote and published a declaration called the “5G Appeal” asking for a moratorium on the building of 5G infrastructure. This was a follow-up to a previous letter sent to the United Nations with a similar request.
The Information War Over 5G
It should not come at all as a surprise to you that telecommunication companies, cell phone manufacturers, or just the technology sector as a whole do not want you to know just how powerful 5G will be.
They don’t want you to fully understand the radiation from 5G and what will likely be far beyond anything we can currently understand or comprehend. Just know, that this will likely be an information war between those companies and industries, and the parents, scientists, and researchers who feel that this will likely be a true danger.
We Are In A 5G World. Protect Yourself.
How To Protect Yourself (And Your Family)From 5G Radiation
So, when we talk about the dangers of 5G, and how we can protect ourselves, we have to approach it from a bit of a holistic approach. This is mostly because it will be so pervasive in our everyday lives. So, we need to talk about how to protect our homes from the smaller, more common, cell towers that are being built, we need to protect ourselves from our cell phones that will be communicating with these towers, etc.
1. Use Distance To Your Advantage
There is something called the inverse-square law of physics, and it’s a super important concept to understand when we’re talking about protecting ourselves from EMF radiation. Essentially what this law states, is that as we double our distance from a source of radiation (including EMF radiation like 5G) we quarter our exposure to it.
Essentially what this means is that the damage that EMF radiation causes, exponentially decreases as we move further away from it. So for example, even the difference between holding a cell phone against your head, or out in front of you on speakerphone is monumental protection from that radiation.
As 5G (or 5th generation of cellular networks) continues to roll out in major cities, you’ll find it is all but unavoidable. Not only your cell phone will be connected, but eventually nearly all the technology around us, including our home routers. So, the most important way we can protect ourselves from 5G is to get as much distance from these devices as possible.
Here are some simple ways you can do that:
• At night, be sure you don’t keep your phone with you, especially under your pillow or right on your nightstand. Our phones are one of our greatest EMF exposure risks, and as 5G continues to be rolled out, keeping our phones away from our bodies when we’re sleeping is one of the smartest things we can do.
• Keep your phone off of your body. Whether you put it in your pocket, in your bra, or anywhere else on your body, you’ll be much better off keeping it in your backpack, purse, briefcase, or somewhere else. If you can’t give this up, be sure to get a quality EMF protection case, and be sure the protective side is facing your body
• Instead of holding your phone up to your head when you’re talking, consider either using the speakerphone or getting a pair of air tube headphones to talk with. This will keep your phone away from your head, and reduce your radiation exposure.
• Keep your router out of rooms you sleep or spend time in. Although it won’t be an immediate change, 5G will be so fast, that many homes will opt to use it for their primary internet connection. Keeping this router as far away from you as possible is one of the best things you can do. We’ll talk more about this later.
What To Keep In Mind:
Whenever you can get distance from a source of EMF radiation, you are protecting yourself. This will be especially true as 5G continues to advance forward and becomes more and more available in various cities.
Protect Your Home From 5G
Alright, now it’s time to talk a little bit about our home, our sanctuary, the place we sleep and relax and spend time with family. Now, it may not be the first place you think of when it comes to the dangers of 5G, but I can assure you (especially if you live in a large city) that you will eventually almost certainly have a 5G cell tower very close to your home.
How 5G Will Infiltrate Your Home
5G will require the use of new bandwidths not currently used by 4G LTE. Although these frequencies provide the speed that this new network wants, they are extremely poor at traveling long distances or penetrating physical barriers like homes, trees, buildings, mountains, etc. So, whereas our current network works mostly off of large cell towers spaced fairly far apart, 5G will utilize hundreds of thousands of small, extremely powerful, small-site relays and towers.
So, instead of a large structure, they made look like a tree, you’ll see small devices on street signs, telephone poles, sides of buildings, and just about anywhere else they can get away with putting them. This means that our previous step, gaining distance from 5G for protection, will become harder and harder as more infrastructure is built and implemented.
What this means for your home, is that this will be difficult to keep out.
The next thing that we have to think about when it comes to our homes and 5G, is all of the 5G connected devices that we’ll have inside. Part of the reason that we as a society are moving towards 5G, is that we have so many more smart devices than we ever have had in the past. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network that allows devices to communicate with us, with each other, and with the Internet.
These devices are crowding the current frequencies, and 5G is an attempt to relieve that. So, you should expect that not only your phone will be connected, but your smart meter, your router, and many of your home appliances as well.
So, one of the best things we can do to protect our homes from 5G, or just EMF radiation in general, is to try to be wise about which devices we are bringing into our homes. Do you really need a smart fridge, a smart microwave, or a smart toaster?
Okay, so maybe not all of those will be a thing, but you get the point. Just think through whether the increased radiation exposure is worth the convenience that these new devices will bring.
Protecting Your Bed From 5G
Sleep is such an important part of recovery, so it’s extremely important that we protect our bed and our bedroom from EMF radiation. However, in this book, I want to talk about a product that is becoming more and more popular, and I think will be in even greater demand as 5G becomes more present in our lives, and that is an EMF protection canopy.
You can probably imagine what this is. Essentially, it is a large canopy that hangs over your entire bed. The canopy is made from a material that is capable of attenuating almost 100% of EMF radiation.
I’ve had people tell me they’ve never slept better after purchasing one, and I can understand why. When you’re sleeping inside, as long as you didn’t foolishly bring your phone, tablet, or laptop with you, you should be exposed to virtually no EMF radiation whatsoever. So, regardless of what is inside of your home, or outside, you’ll be completely protected when you sleep. This is especially important when we think about protecting our bodies from 5G coming from small cell towers right outside our homes.
So, although there are plenty of other ways that you can protect your bedroom from EMF radiation, nothing is likely to be as complete as trying one of these canopies. Be extra sure that you don’t bring any EMF-emitting devices inside though.
Your Cell Phone and 5G
Alright, now let’s spend a little bit of time talking specifically about how 5G will increase the danger of your cell phone, which if you’ve read this far, might be a bit obvious. Modern smartphones are one of the largest drivers of the need for a 5G network. Now that most smartphones are really just mini-computers, they require high speeds and a large bandwidth to maintain the speeds that we’ve come to expect. However, as files get larger, and current frequencies become more crowded, our phones will feel slower and slower.
So, although the new 5G network infrastructure will allow for all kinds of things like IoT, autonomous driving, etc. it is mainly needed to support an ever-growing cellular network. Your cell phone will communicate with these small cell towers in different ways than it currently does, constantly reconnecting to the nearest small cell site. This constant swapping between connections is believed to force your phone to emit even more radiation. Not only that, but the packets of data being sent and received will be considerably larger.
So, instead, let’s talk about ways we can protect our bodies from the 5G connection of our cell phones.
1. Distance – We already talked about why distance is so important to protect yourself, especially from 5G, so I won’t double up by talking about it again here.
2. Cell Signal – This one is extremely important with respect to 5G. When your phone has a poor connection, it actually increases its power level to try to find or maintain a connection during a phone call, which results in much higher levels of radiation. Some studies actually estimate that a phone could emit as much as 1000 times more radiation if it is at 1 bar or less. With the influx of 5G, this danger could be significantly greater.
3. Many cell phones emit a burst of radiation when a call is connected since it takes much more power to establish a call than it does to maintain it. So, whether you are making a phone call, or answering one, wait about a second after connecting before you put the phone to your head.
4. Use Airplane Mode – One of the most underutilized features of your cellphone is airplane mode. Although this won’t eliminate all of the radiation the phone is emitting, it will vastly reduce it by eliminating the cell connection. Your phone emits radiation even when you’re not using it because it maintains its connection to the nearest tower. On top of that, apps are updating, emails are being downloaded, texts are received, etc. All of that data requires radio frequency transmissions, resulting in EMF radiation emissions.
5. Get an Air Tube Headset – One of my absolute favorite EMF protection products, air tube headphones work much like normal headphones, except the upper portion emits no magnetic radiation at all. Instead, the speaker is about halfway down the cable, and it sends the sound through a literal tube of air to your ears. This utilizes the distance principle to protect your brain. So, when you’re making a phone call on your cell phone, you can use this instead of holding it up to your head.
6. Get an EMF Protection Case – I think with more and more people wanting to be protected from 5G, that these cases will be even more popular. They work just like you’d think, protecting the user from some, if not most, of the radiation emitted from the device.
5G Cell Towers – What They Are, How They Work, and Why It Matters.
Alright, first let’s just have a conversation about what 5G towers are, how they work, and why they are different than what we see now. So, your phone currently (almost for sure) is connected to a 4G network, which stands for the 4th generation of cellular networks. In order for it to be connected to that network, it must be using radiofrequency waves to communicate with a nearby cell tower.
You’ve likely seen these cell towers around town, on the side of a mountain, or maybe disguised as a tree. These towers, now sometimes called macro cell towers, are large structures capable of supporting many devices, on a wide spectrum of frequencies, over a large distance.
However, these towers are not at all capable of supporting the coming 5G network. That is for two reasons primarily, first of all, they are only capable of transmitting on a specific part of the radio spectrum (we’ll go in-depth on this topic in the section below). Second, the spectrum required for 5G is not particularly good at traveling large distances or penetrating things like trees and buildings.
Now, you may be asking yourself, “If 5G frequencies are so bad at penetrating buildings, traveling long distances, and aren’t supported by current cellular infrastructure, why do we need them?” Well, we’ll get into this later, but the short answer is, 5G is faster, much faster.
In fact, 5G networks could be as much, or more than, 100 times faster than your 4G. That has implications not only for your Netflix downloads but also for the future of things like artificial intelligence, autonomous driving, machine learning, and much more. So, getting back on topic, 5G is not able to utilize any of the current 4G infrastructures that have been developed over the last decade or so. Instead, these networks will require an entirely new armada of what are called “small cell sites.”
What Are 5G Cell Towers (Small Cells)?
You may actually have already seen small cells if you live in a larger city that has started rolling out 5G infrastructure. However, you may not even realize that you saw one. That is because 5G small cells are both extremely small and inconspicuous. Usually located on light or electrical poles, the sides of buildings, under manhole covers, or just about anywhere else you could fit a backpack-sized box, 5G small cells will eventually be just about everywhere. Take a look at the comparison below, showing a typical 4G tower, as well as a 5G small cell attached to a light pole. Why
How To Locate 5G Cell Towers Near You
This isn’t as straightforward as it is with the current towers that support 3G and 4G LTE. With those current towers, you can basically just look at them, and know that they are cell towers. Usually, they are quite large, quite obvious, and surrounded by a bit of chainlink fencing. If you get up close, you’ll find signs warning you about excessive radiofrequency radiation. Sometimes they’ll be disguised as trees or something else, but if you look at them you’ll know pretty quickly that they aren’t a tree.
Now, with 5G towers, you have to really be paying attention, for a few reasons:
1. They don’t all look the same. Different carriers are installing different equipment.
2. Since 5G small cell towers are so small, they are extremely easy to disguise or cover, so there may be one there without you really even knowing it.
3. They are deliberately hiding them. Vodafone, an enormous telecom company plans to hide many of its 5G cell towers under manhole covers. You’ll also hear about how many telecom companies are hiding their towers on top of buildings, inside of trees, on lamp poles, and many other places that you wouldn’t expect.
5G Network Health Risks Video
Last Updated by: Shield Your Body
- October 26, 2020
5G is a type of EMF radiation. The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has designated this type of EMF as a Class 2B carcinogen. And other research has demonstrated that EMF is genotoxic, which means it can destroy your DNA.
In 2018, the US National Toxicology Program released the results from a $30 million study finding “clear evidence” that exposure to cell phone radiation increased the incidence of cancer and genetic damage in mice.
With 5G, anywhere you go, radiation will follow.
So, when we consider the health and safety risks of 5G for children, heightened exposure is the key cause for concern. If, as we’ve seen above, children absorb more radiation, are more susceptible to health effects due to their developing bodies, and will have increased cumulative exposure across their lifetimes, when we multiply this with the vastly amplified exposure of 5G the threat becomes very real.
Some Things To Keep In Mind:
The biggest difference is that 5G employs millimeter waves for the first time in addition to the
microwaves used in older cellular technologies (2G, 3G, and 4G).
And, because 5G has limited reach, it requires cell antennas every 100 to 200 meters, which exposes many people to millimeter-wave radiation.
Some are particularly concerned about the millimeter waves of 5G. Millimeter waves are absorbed within a few millimeters of human skin and in the surface layers of the cornea, which could lead to health issues.
Here’s how one researcher summarized the health problems associated with millimeter waves:
“Short-term exposure can have adverse physiological effects on the peripheral nervous system, the immune system, and the cardiovascular system. The research suggests that long-term exposure may pose health risks to the skin (e.g., melanoma), the eyes (e.g., ocular melanoma), and the testes (e.g., sterility).”
The Army Uses Millimeter, Why?
Millimeter waves are utilized by the U.S. Army in crowd dispersal guns called Active Denial Systems. Dr. Paul Ben-Ishai pointed to research that was commissioned by the U.S. Army to find out why people ran away when the beam touched them. “If you are unlucky enough to be standing there when it hits you, you will feel like your body is on fire.” The U.S. Department of Defense explains how: “The sensation dissipates when the target moves out of the beam. The sensation is intense enough to cause a nearly instantaneous reflex action of the target to flee the beam.”
Due to the increase in the radio frequency level and the number of cell towers needed for full functionalities of the 5G cellular network, the radiation levels are significantly affected, and this calls for concerns regarding our health.
But we should not lose sight of the great things we can achieve with this 5G network. The future applications of 5G are in Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, and also the as fast machine-to-machine interactions.
Once again we have put technology before health.
