5G is almost here, but at what cost? People are excited about the arrival of 5G technology but many scientists are sounding the alarm over the impending human health disaster that is about to unfold. 5G network frequency generates higher electromagnetic radiation (EMR) that can contaminate the human DNA leading to cancer and other health issues. In 2011, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) designated EMR as a Class 2B carcinogen. Exposure to this kind of radiation affects the rates of DNA mutation and repair. In other words, EMR is genotoxic or poisonous to your genes.
For a 5G network, hundreds of wireless antennas are to be placed in various neighborhoods, cities, and towns as 5G transmitters are of lower power. The unprecedented assembly of 5G towers means naked exposure of all living organisms to radiation. This higher frequency is dangerous to living organisms.
In 2017, 180 scientists and doctors from 35 countries had published an open letter stating the dangers of 5G on human health. Almost three years down the line in February 2020, Switzerland, a country that was supposed to be the leader in the rollout of 5G technology, placed an indefinite freeze on the use of its new network because of the health concerns raised by the lawmakers and its citizens.
The rollout of 5G promises an exciting new world that will bring endless possibilities to technological advancements. But when the question of its safety is raised the investors of 5G technology brushes these concerns under the carpet. When 5G is eventually launched it is going to be the first test of its safety measures on human health.
There are various risks associated with the coming of 5G on human health. They have been studied by some of the leading scientists and they are listed below:
Constant exposure to 5G can cause the following effects on human health: Damage to bone marrow, swelling, loss of hair, depression, decrease in alertness, and can even lead to death.
Dr. Barrie Trower who has spent his career studying and learning about the biological effects of Microwave radiation has very strong words regarding the dangerous effects of 5G. According to him, short-wave microwaves such as 5G, also known as millimeter waves, can cause severe damage to the brain and nerves in humans.
People who discredit the negative effects of 5G would state that Radiofrequency (RF) radiation frequency falls under the ‘non-ionizing’ category. The US military uses a non-lethal, directed-energy weapon to disperse crowds called the Active Denial System. It disperses the crowd by heating up their skins. This system uses a 95 GHz frequency which is considerably lower than the 300 GHz frequency that 5G devices use but this frequency is enough for people to feel that their skin is heating up.
In general, radiation does one major thing to human beings and animals – it destroys our DNA, either by forcing the DNA to mutate or by killing specific groups of cells, all of which lead to cancer. One of the main concerns of 5G technology is that it requires hundreds of small cell towers to be posted around a city in order for it to work. These receptors will be so ubiquitous, that the residents’ exposure to EMR would increase dramatically. In short, wherever you go with 5G, radiation would follow you faithfully
