How safe is the new 5G technology that is being rolled out world wide? As awareness grows regarding the health problems caused by Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation, I get asked that question a lot.
5G technology is not safe, it is RF Radiation. This “non-ionizing” radiation is linked to things like sleep deprivation, tinnitus, cancer, exasperated diabetes, DNA damage (especially in infants and fetuses) and male infertility. And 5G uses much higher frequencies of RF Radiation than previous technology generations which experts predict will only increase its harmful health effects. (See letters from 250 scientists discussing the health problems caused by 5G.)
2G, 3G and 4G uses between 1 GHz to 5 GHz frequencies. 5G uses much higher frequencies, between 24 GHz to 90 GHz. To give you a comparison, check out this Wikipedia article about the US Army’s microwave crowd control weapon that disperses crowds by heating up people’s skin fusing a frequency within the 5G range, 95 GHz.
(Briefly, before we get into the meat of this article I would like to make one note. Especially as 5G technology rolls out and is implemented, but even now with all of the RF Radiation (such as Dirty Electricity, Bluetooth, WiFi, Smart Meter & Cellphone) we are exposed to right now, it is important to go through your home and make some adjustments to protect yourself and your family from these radiation dangers. In other words there are ways where you can keep your gadgets but reduce the RF Radiation and Dirty Electricity down to safe levels. I have descriptions and links to items that help you do this on the Recommended Protections page of this website. I highly recommend you check that page out.)
5G Radiation Safety Issues
5G starts rolling out in 2019. Verizon, AT&T, Sprint have promised 5G devices for the first half of 2019, while T-Mobile says a nationwide network will launch in 2020, but network availability will be limited in 2019, and Apple’s iPhone may not support it until 2020. What this means is we will soon start to see 5G “mini cell stations” popping up all over the place, ultimately every 2 to 8 houses. Yes you read that correctly, every 2 to 8 houses is the long term plan. I will explain why.
First, take a moment if you would and watch this short video from CNBC. This will make the things that I am going to be explaining to you make a lot more sense.
You will notice that in the video it talks about 5G being a “software defined network”, meaning which basically means that it will be operating more on the cloud than previous technologies. This means that processing power, bandwidth and data will be more centralized and shared, kind of like everyone storing files in Google Drive, only on a much larger scale. The move is towards everything being transferred wireless, rather than through wires. This will be possible because 5G uses dramatically higher frequencies than previous technologies. The shorter the wavelength, the higher the frequency, and the more data it can carry.
The Need For More Towers = More Radiation
However the shorter the wavelength also means the shorter distance the wave will travel and the more objects (like a house, a tree or rain) will block the signal. 5G won’t be that exciting if every time you walk around a tree, or a person walks between you and the nearest cell tower, you lose your signal. That would completely ruin the new “enhanced experience” 5G is promised to deliver.
So this is why with 5G the plan is to install “mini cell stations” every 2 to 8 houses depending on how many obstacles (houses, trees, rain etc.) they have in the neighborhood. This means including the mini cell stations there will be 200 times as many cell towers as we have currently. This is why in the video they talk about the “cost” of building out the infrastructure being the biggest obstacle in the 5G roll out. The biggest portion of this cost is the unbelievable volume of mini cell stations that they will have to have to make this a workable technology that has good cellular reception. All of these mini cell towers will be bathing our society in 5G RF Radiation.
In the meantime our cellphones will also use 3G and 4G, so that our conversations can continue as they install the needed infrastructure. So even when the new 5G cellphones come out, it will take a while, possibly years, before your phone actually can use 5G. Our cellphones used 3G for quite a while after 4G cellphones came out, while the infrastructure was catching up. And the cell towers, including the mini cell stations, will have to also emit lower cell frequencies (1.9 GHz to 2.4 GHz) such as 4G uses now, so that signal can get into homes without being blocked by walls. This means 5G roll out will cause us to be exposed to a lot more of the 4G RF Radiation frequencies than we are exposed to now also.
Self Driving Cars
5G is the technology that is going to make “self driving cars” a reality. Can you imagine how many mini cell stations a 5G self driving car would have to have to make sure that it never lost signal in a crowded city? What if you were riding in a self driving car in a rain storm? Rain blocks 5G signal. This is why they will need so many mini cell stations all over the place. (And why they will still need 4G as a backup system.) You can see why it will be a while before you can take a long road trip through the countryside using 5G.
The 5G world that they want to bring in will be one where everything that can be online and smart, will be. Wireless 5G internet will be everywhere, in almost everything that we do. Smartphone capabilities will be greatly increased. Literally everything we can do on any computer will be able to be done on our phones. Even hologram phone calls will be a possibility.
5G Radiation Everywhere
Even though this all sounds like I am giving you a 5G sales pitch, I am not. I am merely trying to demonstrate for you how if and when they bring in the 5G world that they want to create, we literally will be bathing in 5G RF Radiation in levels no human being alive today has ever experienced before. We have not even experienced this much radiation with 4G, even if you live in a 4G WiFi filled home 24/7. 5G will be that but on steroids because it will be using 10 to 40 times the frequency of our current RF Radiation. It will be using 10 to 40 times the frequency that our microwave ovens use to cook our food.
5G Radiation Health Problems
Joel M. Moskowitz, Ph.D., a professor from the University of California, Berkeley, wrote an article entitled “5G Wireless Technology: Is 5G Harmful to Our Health?”, (see Scientific Studies) that discusses the health problems unique to 5G RF Radiation. Remember 5G will use between about 24 GHz and 90 GHz RF Radiation frequencies.
At first he talks about how 5G technology will transfer data in bursts and spikes that will heat up human skin. Even within the UN safety limitations the study found that “The results also show that the peak-to-average ratio of 1,000 tolerated by the International Council on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection guidelines may lead to permanent tissue damage after even short exposures, highlighting the importance of revisiting existing exposure guidelines.”
Also WiFi has a very negative effect on male sperm cells. Not only can it lead to male infertility in some cases, but it can damage the DNA so that if the man is able to reproduce, the damaged DNA will be passed on to offspring and they may not be able to reproduce. They may carry the infertility in other words.
He references another study by Russell CL, that talks about how since we all have been exposed to so much RF Radiation for so long now, that future studies will be much more difficult because we no longer have any groups to study (as a controlled group) that have not already been exposed to large amounts of RF Radiation. One of the main method’s in scientific study is to test one group with a certain exposure, and one without. We no longer have any without.
Next, he discusses studies by Betzalel N, Ben Ishai P, Feldman Y. In the highlights of the study he lists the following:
- The sweat duct is regarded as a helical antenna in the sub-THz band, reflectance depends on perspiration.
- We outline the background for non-thermal effects based on the structure of sweat ducts.
- We have introduced a realistic skin EM model and found the expected SAR for the 5G standard.
This next part is important enough that I am going to quote a few paragraphs of professor Moskowitz’s abstract, then I will summarize. I apologize for the long quotation as it is scientific and complicated to understand:
“In the interaction of microwave radiation and human beings, the skin is traditionally considered as just an absorbing sponge stratum filled with water. In previous works, we showed that this view is flawed when we demonstrated that the coiled portion of the sweat duct in upper skin layer is regarded as a helical antenna in the sub-THz band.
Experimentally we showed that the reflectance of the human skin in the sub-THz region depends on the intensity of perspiration, i.e. sweat duct’s conductivity, and correlates with levels of human stress (physical, mental and emotional). Later on, we detected circular dichroism in the reflectance from the skin, a signature of the axial mode of a helical antenna. The full ramifications of what these findings represent in the human condition are still unclear.
We also revealed correlation of electrocardiography (ECG) parameters to the sub-THz reflection coefficient of human skin. In a recent work, we developed a unique simulation tool of human skin, taking into account the skin multi-layer structure together with the helical segment of the sweat duct embedded in it. The presence of the sweat duct led to a high specific absorption rate (SAR) of the skin in extremely high frequency band.
In this paper, we summarize the physical evidence for this phenomenon and consider its implication for the future exploitation of the electromagnetic spectrum by wireless communication. Starting from July 2016 the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has adopted new rules for wireless broadband operations above 24 GHz (5 G). This trend of exploitation is predicted to expand to higher frequencies in the sub-THz region. One must consider the implications of human immersion in the electromagnetic noise, caused by devices working at the very same frequencies as those, to which the sweat duct (as a helical antenna) is most attuned.
We are raising a warning flag against the unrestricted use of sub-THz technologies for communication, before the possible consequences for public health are explored.”
So basically in summary what he is saying is that in this study they showed that the “coiled portion of the sweat duct” in the upper skin layer acts as a “helical antenna in the sub-THz band”. This basically means that some of the frequencies that 5G use is the same as used by our body, particularly our skin in this example. And so the coiled portion of our sweat ducts act as helical antennas or receivers to some of these 5G signals, which can do a variety of damage to our skin and bodies. This I believe is part of how the US Military microwave weapon “Active Denial System” is able to heat up the skin.
In referring to another study done by Nasim I, Kim S., he points out that most of the studies that have been done have solely focused on the up-link portion of the wireless signal. The study points out that we are also exposed in a very significant way to the other half of the equation which is the “down-link” portion. In other words even if we are not using our cellphones we are being exposed to all of the signals from everyone else sending and receiving calls, as well as the WiFi signal transmitted by the various cell towers (and in the future the mini cell stations). The point here is that any problems they have identified really are multiples of what the studies have found.
In this article he goes over many other studies and discusses the findings of each. Again you can find this article on the “Scientific Studies” page of this website.
In the below video I talk more about what makes 5G more dangerous than 4G. It is a short video but very much worth watching.
5G Frequencies Same As Military Weapons
When 5G comes out the radiation we will all be exposing ourselves to will be much more dangerous radiation. 5G radiation is an ultra high intense, ultra high frequency type of RF Radiation compared to any of the earlier versions of wireless technology we have been exposed to. Barry Trower, a British physicist, says that he has a list of various microwave frequencies that he used to use in the military that would cause specific neurological and biological harm to people. The military uses these waves in torturing prisoners of war to get them to reveal information.
He also said that he saw the military use certain microwave frequencies on specific groups of people, such as protesters, to cause harm to them, or to make them sick. He said it was a great weapon because people did not know that weapons were being used on them. All they knew was they were getting the symptoms, sick or cancer or whatever. Barry says that many of the frequencies that he saw the military use are some of the same frequencies used in 5G.
Most World Scientists Oppose 5G
According to Barry Trower, the leading scientists from 40 different countries have spoken out against 5G being rolled out. They have done hundreds of studies and written “thousands” of papers, all peer reviewed, showing the negative effects of RF Radiation and the dangers of the frequencies used in 5G. But the 15 trillion dollar cellular industry is not just deaf to the concerns of the scientists. He says that they pay off government scientists to produce inaccurate tests with the results they want to have.
Soon the governments of the world will be broadcasting 5G cellular waves from satellites all over the world. In Barry’s words “there will be no safe place to be”. It is Barry’s opinion, based on the fact that the concerns of all these scientists being blatantly ignored, that the main purpose behind 5G is “mass genocide”. I do not know if Barry is correct in guessing their intent, but Barry says that he cannot come up with any other reason for something that will be so massively deadly on a global scale. The video of the interview where Barry discusses these things is this YouTube video.
Below is a video of an interview of Barry where he discusses his credentials and the exact harm WiFi causes on the human body. His message in this video is totally based on his life’s work as a physicist specializing in microwave weapons. This is what I believe is the most important video of Barry’s to watch.
It is concerning to say the least hearing Barry Trower talking about the effect of regular WiFi RF Radiation on the DNA of eggs in women’s ovaries, especially as young infants.
So we have our cellphones with us almost all the time. Some people sleep with them. Cellphones are literally our biggest source of RF Radiation simply because we keep them so close to our person 24/7. In my article “How To Protect Yourself From Cellphone Radiation” I go into detail on the best ways to protect yourself from cellphone radiation. Imagine how much worse the effect of this will be once everyone has 5G cellphones emitting these more intense higher frequencies.
Most cell phones put off right around 1.9 GHz to the 2.45 GHz. Microwave ovens operate using 2.45 GHz. When 5G cellphones come out, they will still be using the 2 GHz to 2.4 GHz of 3G & 4G, when 5G signals are not available. But when they are 5G will use between 24 GHz and 90 GHz. I hear some people on the internet claim up to 300 GHz which is the top of the microwave spectrum, but I have not been able to verify that yet. I have heard though that some devices might use higher than the 90 GHz, but no specific numbers have been cited.
Here is a very informative article by Microwave News discussing how much more vulnerable children are to RF Radiation than adults. It is very much worth reading. It is “Children and Cell Phones: Time To Start Talking Sense“. It is focused more on the SAR reading, which has to do with the heating or thermal effect of RF Radiation. But the most dangerous effects of RF Radiation are actually the non-thermal effects. See more scientific studies and articles at the Scientific Studies page of this website.
Now Bluetooth is becoming more and more common nowadays. It is not just seen in the wireless headsets or earbuds of people walking through the grocery stores looking like they are talking to themselves. Electronic devices in homes are coming out that communicate with each other like “Alexa” and “Echos”, and a variety of other “AI” or “Smart” devices. These devices communicate with each other using Bluetooth most often.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology designed for sharing voice, data, or other files between devices. In these cases both devices emit Bluetooth WiFi in order to transfer this information. Bluetooth uses the exact same frequency that the microwave oven uses, although at a much less wattage, which is 2.45 GHz. The power level is different, but the RF Radiation is the exact same. When 5G comes out
They even use Bluetooth now in many baby monitors when the monitor needs to connect to other devices. Most parents would not be caught dead sticking their infant inches away from their microwave oven while they are cooking dinner. Yet they will stick a baby monitor or an Alexa on the night stand right next to their child’s head that emits the exact same radiation. You can’t really blame most parents though because most have never heard these things.
And there are some homes now that have multiple smart devices, such as thermostats, switches, baby monitors, control boxes etc. all through out the house that all communicate with each other and with their cellphones, via Bluetooth. These people are literally exposed to multiple sources of Bluetooth twenty four hours a day seven days a week. Crazy.
WiFi is a part of every day life nowadays. As Barry Trower talked about schools have it now and so do every office and almost every home. And the problem is that very few people have heard of the risks. Most of us have heard that cellphones might cause cancer, but very few know that WiFi is the exact same RF Radiation, only more constant and at a higher frequency.
(As shown in the above video, a Wifi Router Guard is a device that can shield you from WiFi radiation.) Most WiFi routers now use the 2.4 GHz frequency. However 5 GHz frequency routers are coming out and starting to get popular. Because the 5 GHz routers have a tougher time going through walls because of the higher frequency, most 5 GHz routers have multiple bands, and still use the 2.4 GHz band as well. This way if your device trying to access WiFi can get good signal with the 5 GHZ, it will use that and have the faster speed. But if it can the device will automatically just grab the 2.4 GHz band and still have good speed internet access.
The problem with the lower microwave frequencies from the 1 GHz to the 2.45 GHz is that there are getting to be so many devices using those same bands that they are starting to cause interference with each other. With all of the new technologies the tech companies want to roll out, everything from self driving cars, to hologram phone conversations, there will be too much interference using the commonly used frequencies.
Plus at the higher frequencies much more data can be carried by the radio waves. So these higher frequencies are needed to make these new technologies function as desired. Never mind anyone’s health.
They plan on coming out with a 60 GHz WiFi Router. This will have much faster download speeds, but walls will be a problem. So they will still use the 2.4 GHz band as well so that devices can still get the signal further distances away from the router. But people in the same room as the router will be exposed to 60 GHz, which is going to be very harmful.
Protect Your Family From RF Radiation Guide
In closing I just want to talk for a bit about a guide that I put together that will help you go through your home and step by step reduce each RF Radiation emission back down to safe levels, so that your family’s health will be protected. Doing this is extremely important now, but will be even more critical the farther we get into the 5G roll out. To read this guide just click on this link “The Protect Your Family From RF Radiation Guide“. The guide is written and has a bunch of videos.
In this guide I film myself going room by room through a home that I selected, and test each room and circuit for both RF Radiation and Dirty Electricity. Then I tell you exactly what I would do to correct each issue. There are a few more serious issues with this home which is why I selected it. So in those cases the home owners will need to get an electrician to find and fix the problems. So for those issues I describe the approach I would take to narrow down the problem and show it to the electrician. And then I show you how to test and make sure the electrician actually corrected the problem.
Most homes however will not need an electrician. I just wanted a more extreme case as an example. My home is an older home, but has new electrical wiring. So my home was pretty normal. It was really easy. I tested it in about 45 minutes. And the corrections I had to make took maybe another 30. There were a few protection items that I had to buy. So for the dirty electricity, for example, I tested first so that I knew how many filters I needed. Then I ordered the filters and installed them a week or so later when they arrived.
Most homes can be tested in one to two hours, depending on its size. But then it is usually a fairly quick fix as well, but could take longer as well. Again, most homes don’t need electrical work to solve the problem. But some will. For example I know of a home that had one circuit with really bad dirty electricity reading. It ended up they had a grounding problem on that circuit that it took an electrician to solve. Once corrected the rest was easy.
The nice thing about this guide is that I show you how to go through your house room by room and test everything. Then I show you the corrections as well, and explain them. I put this guide together because I wish I would have had something like that with everything I needed to know all in one place, when I was first learning about this stuff. It would have saved me a lot of time and research. So I hope it is helpful. If it is helpful please share it with any friends and family that you may have that or of a like mind.
