Why we should be Concerned about 5G
Reports at an international conference as long ago as 2017 raised concerns about 5G technology. Israeli researchers presented studies revealing the same electromagnetic frequencies used for crowd control weapons, form the foundations of 5G networks. This 5G network will tie together more than 50 billion devices as part of the Internet of Things.
Cause for concerns about 5G
Current investigations of wireless frequencies in the millimeter and sub-millimeter range confirm these waves interact directly with human skin, specifically sweat glands. Dr. Ben-Ishai of the Department of Physics, Hebrew University, Israel recently detailed how human sweat-ducts act like an array of helical antennas when exposed to these wavelengths.
Further research recommended before rollout of 5G
Amidst concerns about 5G, Scientists caution against rolling out technologies using these frequencies; pending research into the human health effects. In depth research is needed to ensure the public and environment are protected. This clearly isn’t or hasn’t been done as they are already creeping into towns and cities.
Unlike large cell-phone towers, new 5G transmitters are small and easily attached to lamp posts, buildings, traffic lights, street corners. Concerns about 5G transmitters are justified, as there is no limit to where they can and will be put. Already being rolled out in some US states, they are causing huge problems for EHS sufferers. It may be decades before we see the real effect this raise in exposure rates has on the general public. We cannot let this be the new silent unrealised danger such as cigarettes were in the past.
Current advice is inadequate
Current safety advice is to switch from WiFi and hard wire your computing equipment where possible, rather than using WiFi, and to turn it off at night. When 5G is rolled out this safety advice will prove useless with no way to block out the constant bombardment.
