Even though many in the scientific community are loudly warning about the potential health effects that 5G technology could have on the general population, Verizon and AT&T are starting to put up their 5G networks in major cities all across the nation. Today, the total number of cell phones exceeds the entire population of the world, and the big cell phone companies are making a crazy amount of money providing service to all of those phones. And now that the next generation of cell phone technology has arrived, millions of cell phone users are looking forward to better connections and faster speeds than ever before. In fact, President Trump says that 5G networks will be up to 100 times faster than the current 4G networks we are using right now:
5G will be as much as 100 times faster than the current 4G cellular networks. It will transform the way our citizens work, learn, communicate and travel. It will make American farms more productive, American manufacturing more competitive and American health care better and more accessible. Basically, it covers almost everything, when you get right down to it. Pretty amazing.
And just as 4G networks paved the way for smartphones and all of the exciting breakthroughs — they made possible so many things — this will be more secure and resilient. 5G networks will also create astonishing and really thrilling new opportunities for our people—opportunities that we've never even thought we had a possibility of looking at.
Sounds great, right?
But in order to achieve such vastly superior performance, 5G networks will use technology that is completely different from 4G networks.
5G waves are "ultrahigh frequency" and "ultrahigh intensity", but they are also easily absorbed by objects such as buildings and trees. So although cell towers will be much, much smaller, but they will also have to be much, much closer together than before. According to CBS News, it is estimated that the big cell phone companies will be putting up at least 300,000 of these small towers, and it has been projected that it will cost hundreds of billions of dollars to fully set up the 5G network nationwide.
Needless to say, there is a tremendous amount of money at stake, and the big cell phone companies are trying very hard to assure everyone that 5G technology is completely safe.
But is it?
Today, there is a growing body of scientific evidence that indicates that the electromagnetic radiation that we are constantly being bombarded with is not good for us. Hundreds of scientists that are engaged in research in this area have signed the "International EMF Scientist Appeal," and this is how that document begins:
We are scientists engaged in the study of biological and health effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF). Based upon peer-reviewed, published research, we have serious concerns regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices. These include—but are not limited to—radiofrequency radiation (RFR) emitting devices, such as cellular and cordless phones and their base stations, Wi-Fi, broadcast antennas, smart meters and baby monitors as well as electric devices and infrastructures used in the delivery of electricity that generate extremely low frequency electromagnetic field (ELF EMF).
In the next paragraph, we are told that "cancer risk," "genetic damages," "functional changes of the reproductive system" and "neurological disorders" are some of the health risks that have been discovered by the scientific research that has been conducted so far:
Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plant and animal life.
And remember, 5G technology is going to take all of this to an entirely new level.
Because the 5G towers are going to be so powerful and so close together, it will essentially be like living in a closed radiation chamber 24 hours a day.
Over in Israel, one scientist has discovered that the surface of the human body actually draws in 5G radiation "like an antenna":
What's further disturbing about 5G radiation is how the human body responds to and processes it. Dr. Ben-Ishai from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem discovered as part of a recent investigation that human skin acts as a type of receptor for 5G radiation, drawing it in like an antenna.
"This kind of technology, which is in many of our homes, actually interacts with human skin and eyes," writes Arjun Walia for Collective Evolution about the study.
"... human sweat ducts act like a number of helical antennas when exposed to these wavelengths that are put out by the devices that employ 5G technology," he adds.
In other words, our bodies are essentially magnets for 5G radiation.
So will it be worth it?
Will you be willing to risk your life in order to have better connections and faster speeds?
Sure, your phone will be more useful than ever before, but there is also the possibility that you could get cancer. Even the American Cancer Society acknowledges the risk:
A recent large study by the US National Toxicology Program (NTP) exposed large groups of lab rats and mice to RF energy over their entire bodies for about 9 hours a day, starting before birth and continuing for up to 2 years (which is the equivalent of about 70 years for humans, according to NTP scientists). The study found an increased risk of tumors called malignant schwannomas of the heart in male rats exposed to RF radiation, as well as possible increased risks of certain types of tumors in the brain and adrenal glands.
Of course all previous studies have been done on existing cell phone technology.
No studies have been done on the health effects of our new ultra-powerful 5G technology, and this has many scientists extremely concerned.
Dr. Martin Pall, a Ph.D. and professor emeritus of biochemistry and basic medical sciences at Washington State University, says that rolling out 5G without any safety testing whatsoever "has got to be about the stupidest idea anyone has had in the history of the world."
Unfortunately, there is no organized opposition, and 5G networks are going up all over the country right now.
So it won't be too long before you are being bombarded by "ultrahigh frequency" and "ultrahigh intensity" cell phone radiation wherever you go, and most people won't even realize what is happening.
And if you do get sick, the cell phone companies sure aren't going to pay the bill.
