How Do 5G Cell Towers Work? – A Helpful Guide!

The new “Fifth Generation” (5G) cell towers are starting to dot our cities and towns. With promises of much faster data download speeds the 5G roll-out is in high gear.

What makes 5G cell towers work so much faster is the much higher frequencies they use. The shorter wave lengths of the 5G frequencies will allow upload and download speeds in excess of ten times the current speed of 4G. These 5G “millimeter” waves don’t travel as far and get obstructed by objects easier, which is why they will need a mini 5G cell tower every 2 to 8 houses. (Related article “5G Health Risks Debunked – Get The Facts!“)

While that all sounds great and exciting, at what cost to our health will this new technology come? There are literally hundreds of scientific studies linking 1G, 2G, 3G & 4G to things like cancer, DNA damage (especially in infants and fetuses), and infertility. And experts say that 5G promises even worse.

(Before we get into the guts of this article I would like to mention one thing. Most people do not realize how harmful Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation (like 5G) is, and how much of it we are exposed to already every day in our homes. To learn simple ways to protect yourself from this harmful radiation please see our “WiFi Radiation Protection Items” article.)

These 5G cell towers will be completely different than previous technologies. They are much more advanced and use much higher and more intense frequencies. The millimeter wave frequencies that they use will be able to carry much larger amounts (massive amounts) of data but will have more trouble going through obstacles such as walls, trees and even rain.

Whenever I talk to anyone about 5G they are always very excited about the technological possibilities that it will add to our lives. But they usually seem equally concernerned about potencial health threats the technology may pose. As we get into this article we are going to go into depth into both of these areas regarding 5G. Let’s get started!

5G Cell Towers – More Advanced

5G Cell Tower 15G cell towers are much more advanced, and function differently than do previous cellular network generations. In fact 4th generation cell towers will not transmit 5G signals. New 5G transmitters will have to be placed on the old 3G and 4G cell towers.

And because the 5G frequencies are so much higher that previous generations, the wave lengths are a lot shorter. These shorter (millimeter length) waves, carry more data but do not do as well at moving through obstacles such as walls, trees and rain. Because of this we will have to have these 5G mini cell towers every 2 to 8 houses, depending on the frequencies they are transmitting and the obstacles in the way.

The image above left is of a neighborhood light pole converted into a 5G mini cell tower. They will be also be on the tops of buildings and even street signs. If you live in one of the larger cities where 5G is already beginning to be rolled out, you may already have these all around you.

Why 5G Needs More Cell Towers

To understand this I will need to explain to you a bit about what a cellular signal is, and a bit more about it . Simply put a cell signal is electricity moving through the air. For example we are all familiar with how electricity moves through the power lines in our home. This electricity has a frequency of about 60 Hz (Fun fact: 1 GHz is equal to 1 billion Hz). As electricity reaches a high enough frequency to be come airborne, we call it a “radio wave”, which is a form of what we call “electromagnetic radiation”.

What Is Frequency?

Radio Wave FrequencyA radio wave travels similar to how we see the water on a pond ripple when we throw a stone into it. We measure the “length” of radio waves from the top of one wave, to the top of the next wave. (See image on the left.) Frequency has an inverse relation ship with wave length. The shorter the wave length, the higher the frequency. So just to re-state this for clarity, the shorter the distance between the top of one wave to the top of the next wave, the higher the frequency is said to be.

Frequency affects some very important characteristics about the radio wave. The longer the length of the wave, the more stable it is, the farther it travels and the less obstacles interfere with it. The shorter the wave length the more data it can carry, the shorter distance it can travel, the less stable it is and the more obstacles interfere with it. Below we will talk about how having more cell towers corrects this problem. But first we need to understand more about the electromagnetic spectrum. Please take a quick look at the below chart:

Electromagnetic SpectrumAs you can see in the above chart, in the lower part of the electromagnetic spectrum are things like radio waves and microwaves. At the top end of the spectrum are things like x-rays and gamma rays. The “Radio Frequency” portion of the electromagnetic spectrum includes both the Radio waves and Microwaves part of the spectrum.

The frequency of Radio waves go from about where electricity becomes airborne up to approximately 1 GHz. Microwaves go from about 1 GHz up to 300 GHz. 2G, 3G and 4G cellular networks operate between about 1 GHz and 6 GHZ frequencies. I have read some estimates where they expect 5G to operate between 24 GHz and 90 GHz frequencies, and others that estimate 5G will go as high as the top of the Microwave range which is 300 GHz frequency. Different systems will work on slightly different frequencies so that they do not interfere with each other, but they will be in those ranges.

Solving 5G Unreliability

5g City ImageSo depending on the frequency of the signal each particular cellular provider chooses to operate its network on, will depend on how close they will need the mini 5G cell towers to be. The higher the frequency they use, the more things like rain, walls and a tree will disrupt the cellular signal.

So let’s say you are out walking through a park talking on your 5G cell phone, and as you walk past a tree you lose your cell signal. (4G signal would go through the tree better.) The cellular carrier will have to have your cell phone automatically grab the signal from another 5G mini cell tower fast enough so that you don’t have your conversation interrupted.

Highly advanced electronic equipment both in the 5G mini cell tower and cell phone make this possible. And a very sophisticated algorithm will be constantly routing and re-routing the most reliable cell towers to connect you to. And like I said we will never know any of this is going on. We will just be talking on our cell phones as we have always been able to. That is if there is enough cell towers in line of site for our phones to connect to.

What 5G Cell Towers Look Like

There are a lot of different looks coming out for the 5G mini cell towers. The two images below are fitted directly on top of a street light pole. You might have to look close to see it. It looks just like an extension of the pole. Soon these will be on most street light poles. The goal is to get them between every two to eight homes depending on the frequency of the equipment used and how many obstructions are in the area.

What 5G Cell Towers Look Like5G Cell Tower Next To SchoolThe second image above is a close up of a similar looking one they just put up right near a school building. Look at how close it is to the school! I have not gotten into it yet but later in this article I am going to get into why 5G is so dangerous and what scientific studies there are out now about the subject. If this is a topic that you are interested in I list links to many of the hundreds of peer reviewed scientific studies on the “Scientific Studies” page of this website.

5G Cell Tower On wood Power Pole5G Cell Tower Under ViewOkay the two images above are another style. You can see them on either side of this wooden power pole and the extension from the metal street light. This type is quite common in many parts of the country. It seems with this style they are going for functionality rather than aesthetics lol! These are not to aesthetically pleasing in my opinion.

5G Cell Tower Pine Tree 5G Cell Tower Cactus 5G Cell Tower Palm Tree

Here are some pictures of how companies are dressing up 5G cell towers to look like a pine tree, palm tree and a cactus. The idea here is to be more aesthetically pleasing.

What Devices Will Connect Via 5G?

Self Driving CarThe plan for 5G is for it to be “the internet of all things”. An easier question to answer might be what things do they not want to connect to the 5G network? I think a fair statement would be if there is a way to connect something to 5G, that will be the goal.

Both electronic devices outside of the home as well inside the home they hope to have on the 5G network. By outside the home we think of cell towers, electronic billboards, public trains and buses, as well as self driving cars (see above left image).

By inside the home we are talking about thermostats, AI devices like Alexa, baby monitors, sprinkler systems, light switches, electrical outlets, security systems, WiFi routers, and even things like microwave ovens, dish washing machines and clothes washers and dryers.

Is 5G Radiation Dangerous?

Well simply put the short answer is yes. But I don’t want you to take my word for it, especially without some explanation and proof. So I will now get into looking at whether or not 5G Radiation is harmful, how this relates to RF Radiation in general, and what evidence there is for all of this.

Radio Frequency (RF) Dangers

First lets talk about RF Radiation basics, what it is and why it is dangerous. Radio Frequency Radiation includes the “Radio waves” and the “Microwaves” sections of the electromagnetic spectrum chart above towards the beginning of this article. It takes in from the bottom of the electromagnetic spectrum up to about the 300 GHz frequency. According to Kevin Mottus, President of the US Brain Tumor Association, within the radio frequency portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, the higher the frequency the more dangerous the radiation is to living organisms.

In the below video Kevin Mottus discusses before a government council why RF Radiation is so dangerous, with a specific focus on 5G:

There are literally thousands of peer reviewed scientific studies on RF Radiation linking it to things such as cancer, DNA damage (especially in infants and fetuses) and male infertility. Barrie Trower, a British physicist who spent his whole career learning about and experimenting with RF Radiation claims that he has seen multiple cases where caused crib death in infants. For links to many of these scientific studies see the “Scientific Studies” page of this website.

Again much of this RF Radiation that we are exposed to each day is emitted from wireless devices we already have in our home. To learn simple ways to protect yourself from this harmful radiation please see our “WiFi Radiation Protection Items” article.

Ionizing Vrs Non-Ionizing Radiation

The most common claim made by any government or technical website is that because Radio Frequency Radiation is “non-ionizing”, there is no possible way that it can hurt us. Ionizing Radiation is the radiation from the top half of the electromagnetic spectrum. It includes things like x-rays and gamma rays.

According to Google, ionizing radiation basically means “radiation consisting of particles, X-rays, or gamma rays with sufficient energy to cause ionization in the medium through which it passes”. In other words Ionizing Radiation heats up our bodies and our brains. Non-ionizing radiation does not, at least not in the same way.

DNA UnwindingHowever there are a lot more ways to harm the human body besides heating it up. But the tech industry and the government ignore these. Without trying to sound like I have my tin foil hat on, I think it is very interesting that this is the argument you hear from all those who have a vested interest in, or who stand to make money from 5G. Every independent (a.k.a. Non industry paid for) scientific study I have read shows very serious negative health effects.

As I mentioned above there are literally thousands of peer reviewed scientific studies on RF Radiation linking it to things such as cancer, DNA damage (especially in infants and fetuses) and male infertility. Again, for links to many of these scientific studies see the “Scientific Studies” page of this website.

RF Radiation & Crib Death

In this below video physicist Barrie Trower discusses all of the negative health effects he has witnessed in his life long study of RF Radiation. He is an expert in this field devoting his whole life to it. I highly recommend you taking just a few minutes to watch this video, especially after about the 6 minute part where he gets into the actual negative health effects he has witnessed. He talks specifically in this video with his experience with crib death caused by RF Radiation.

5G Radiation Dangers

5G Radiation is more dangerous than 4G Radiation because compared to 4G, 5G is much higher frequency with much higher intensity. What does this mean? Well first remember what Kevin Mottus, the president of the US Brain Tumor Association said. He said that within the RF Radiation portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, the higher the frequency the more dangerous the radiation is to living organisms. I explain this in a bit more detail here in this below video.

Second, 5G Radiation is more intense because the waves or so much shorter in length, there will be many more waves hitting us in the same amount of time. And the sources emitting 5G Radiation will be from a much closer proximity. 5G Radiation does not travel as far so (as we discussed above) 5G cell towers will have to be much closer than with previous cellular network generations.

Scientific studies have shown that less powerful but consistent exposure is more harmful than powerful exposure for a short period of time. Since so many towers and devices around us will be emitting 5G Radiation in such close proximity, our exposure will be more powerful and consistent. 5G will be the worst of both worlds health wise. Plus since the wavelengths are so much shorter the amount of waves hitting us from each device will be significantly increased. I hope that all made sense the way I explained that.

US Military’s “Active Denial System”

Active Denial Weapon
US Military’s “Active Denial System” Crowd Control Weapon

Microwave Radiation is electromagnetic radiation that is between about 1 GHz frequency up to about 300 GHz frequency. 2G, 3G & 4G used between 1 GHz and 6 GHz frequencies. 5G will use between 24 GHz to 90 GHz and possibly up to 300 GHz frequencies. A microwave oven cooks our food at 2.45 GHz frequency.

The US Military has a crowd control weapon called the “Active Denial System” that disperses crowds by heating up the hair follicle pores in people’s skin (see image on the above left). It makes people feel like their skin is burning and is painful enough to make a crowd disperse. It does not really send out a red beam as shown in the image. That is just to illustrate that the RF Radiation can be aimed and sent in a certain direction. The Active Denial System uses RF Radiation at the 95 GHz frequency.

5G Millimeter Wave Airport Body Scanners

5G Millimeter Wave Airport Body ScannerAirport body scanners use 5G Radiation between 24 and 30 GHz frequencies currently. The exposure is the most dangerous to those who are exposed to it the most such as frequent flyers and especially the TSA workers who run them. There has been a very high cancer rate among TSA workers who work near the scanners. At least that is what many of TSA unions are claiming. See this time article entitled: “Did Airport Scanners Give Boston TSA Agents Cancer?“.

In this below video it is of a TSA worker who was perfectly healthy when she started working at the airport, but she was assigned to work next to one of these millimeter wave body scanners. She soon started feeling sick and started getting a variety of symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, and dizziness at times. She also felt like her coordination was impaired and had feelings of almost fainting.

Later symptoms that started about 18 months after working there were things like joint pain. She could tell something was going on with her brain and nervous system. She had many co-workers, 28 of them, who all came down with cancer. Many would be on chemotherapy while still working during the day. These body scanners give us a bit of insight into what negative health these frequencies can cause. It is an interesting video and worth watching.

Okay now I want to get into some scientific studies. Some tell me this part is boring, but it is the most important part. This is the proof that cell phone radiation causes disease.

RF Radiation Scientific Studies

Temporal LobeAggressive Brain Tumors Tell a Story: On the website there is an article entitled “Aggressive Brain Tumors on the Rise in England“. In this article they talk about how Alasdair Philips, an independent researcher based in Scotland, and three of his colleagues wrote a research article entitled “Brain Tumours: Rise in Glioblastoma Multiforme Incidence in England 1995–2015 Suggests an Adverse Environmental or Lifestyle Factor” where they show from their studies that the incidence of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the deadliest type of brain tumor, more than doubled in England between 1995 and 2015.  In the article they state:

“During that time, the number of cases of GBM rose from 983 to 2,531. “We found a sustained and highly significant increase in GBM throughout the 21 years and across all ages,” said Alasdair Philips, the lead author of the study, which has just been released online by the peer-reviewed, open access, Journal of Environmental and Public Health. 

“The incidence rate of GBM, the most aggressive and quickly fatal brain tumor, is rising dramatically in England while the rates for lower grade tumors have decreased, masking this dramatic trend in the overall data,” Philips told Microwave News from his home in Beeswing in southern Scotland, not far from the English border.

Philips provided the graph below which shows how the total number of malignant brain tumors (black line) has remained fairly steady, concealing the increase in GBM (red line).”

Brain Tumor Graph

“What’s Causing the Rise of GBM? Philips and coworkers do not know what is causing the increase in GBM, but they reject improved diagnosis because these tumors are generally fatal and are very rarely missed. “We suggest that widespread environmental or lifestyle factors may be responsible,” they write.

One possible factor is the widespread use of cell phones. “When we looked at the incidence of GBM tumors we found an even more dramatic rise in frontal and temporal regions of the brain. This raises the suspicion that mobile phone use may be promoting gliomas.” Philips told us (see figure below). “Indeed, our findings support previous work by Lennart Hardell’s group in Sweden.””

2nd RF Radiation Brain Tumor Image

Dangers Living Near A Cell Tower: In the German study published in April 2004 entitled “The Influence of Being Physically Near to a Cell Phone Transmission Mast on the Incidence of Cancer“, 5 scientists studied the occurrence of cancer in people living close to a cell tower and people who did not. They said “the aim of our study was to examine whether people living close to cellular transmitter antennas were exposed to a heightened risk of taking ill with malignant tumors.”

They studied almost 1,000 patients between the years 1994 and 2004. In their summary they state that:

“The result of the study shows that the proportion of newly developing cancer cases was significantly higher among those patients who had lived during the past ten years at a distance of up to 400 meters from the cellular transmitter site, which has been in operation since 1993, compared to those patients living further away, and that the patients fell ill on average 8 years earlier.

In the years 1999-2004, i.e. after five years’ operation of the transmitting installation, the relative risk of getting cancer had trebled (which means it tripled) for the residents of the area in the proximity of the installation compared to the inhabitants of Naila outside the area.”

5G Radiation Scientific Studies

5G Internet Dangers5G studies are already coming to surface, but just in the last few years. However hundreds of scientists who have studied the dangers of previous cellular network generations (like 4G) are warning about the massive increase in serious health problems they say 5G will absolutely cause. There are a group of over 180 doctors and scientists from around the world who are actively writing letters to government agencies calling for them to put a stop to the roll out of 5G because of the many catastrophic health problems they foresee.

On the website (at the time of this writing) there is a video on their home page about a group of scientists speaking before the Massachusetts State House Of Representatives on the health dangers of cell phones and 5G. I have included this video so that you can watch it below this paragraph. It is very interesting and enlightening. I highly recommend you taking a moment to watch this.

In the video scientists talk about exposure to RF Radiation from WiFi devices such as cell phones cause things like brain and breast cancer, male and female infertility, impairment to childhood development, and DNA Damage (especially in infants and fetuses), negative health effects on the eye, brain and central nervous system, cardiovascular effects and electromagnetic sensitivity.

Also on they have an article entitled “Small Cells, Mini Cell Towers, Wireless Facilities And Health: Letters From Scientists On The Health Risk Of 5G“. I realize that is a long title lol. But in this article they have many links to letters written by the over 180 doctors and scientists from around the world calling on various government agencies to stop the roll out of 5G. I will give you several examples of these letters below.

5G Letters From Scientists

ehtrust websiteFirst, there is a letter from 18 scientists who are experts in this field, to “The Honorable Edmund G. Brown, JR.”, the governor of the State Of California in 2017 when this letter was written.

I am going to quote only two letters in their entirety (neither is long) only because I know many reading this article may not take the time to click on the link and go read some of these letters for themselves. And this is very important stuff for people to read and understand. the first letter is more general giving you the flavor of their intent and the second gets more into science and the problems they expect.

Okay here is the letter dated “September 19, 2017”. For an actual link to this letter on the website click on this link: “Letter by 18 Doctors & Scientists to California Gov.“. It reads:

Dear Gov. Brown:

SB 649 is on your desk awaiting your decision, and we respectfully urge a veto. This bill denies citizens and local governments the right to a voice as to where 50,000 or more new cell towers, spaced every two to ten homes, will soon be placed. Telecom will be erecting towers in the rights-of-way, and placing them on utility poles and lampposts in front of our homes, schools, places of worship and businesses. There will be no escaping the cell towers or the radiation emitted from them. SB 649 fails to mandate monitoring of radiation levels from these cell towers at a time when the FCC is closing their regional monitoring offices. A failure to monitor is a failure to regulate. 

SB 649 has passed through the Senate and Assembly despite opposition from the cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Jose as well as 297 other cities, the Teamsters, AARP, Environmental Working Group, Environmental Health Trust, Communications Workers of America, the League of Cities, California Brain Tumor Association, a host of environmental and justice groups, and leaders of 47 out of 58 California counties.

There is a substantial body of evidence that this technology is harmful to humans and the environment. The 5G millimeter wave is known to heat the eyes, skin and testes, and the ubiquitous placement of these towers will expose California’s population 24/7. Of particular concern are the most vulnerable among us — the unborn, children, the infirm, the elderly and the disabled. It is also expected that populations of bees and birds will drastically decline.

Ironically, the strongest among us, the firefighters, received an exemption from SB 649. After years of their stations being targeted for cell tower placement, SPECT brain scan testing among a group of California firefighters revealed abnormalities that included cognitive impairment. This translated to firefighters occasionally getting lost while driving their emergency equipment through the streets in the same town they grew up in. Infertility and miscarriages plagued the department. Perhaps most shocking of all, the cell tower near the station was measured at 1/1000th of the allowed limit set by the FCC.

We support the fire station exemption of SB 649. If the firefighters are impaired, we are all at risk. Yet this exemption protects the strongest of the strong and forces the most vulnerable among us to live with the greatest exposure. We find that unacceptable. We also find the health risks both real and deeply concerning.

In May 2016 the National Toxicology Program, part of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, released partial results of a $25,000,000 study on laboratory animals which showed a link between the RF (wireless) radiation and two types of cancer, prompting the American Cancer Society’s chief medical officer to note that the results “mark a paradigm shift in our understanding of radiation and cancer risk.’’ The NTP study also found DNA breakage in brain cells, confirming multiple studies dating back to 1994. The NTP study follows the 2011 classification by IARC, the World Health Organization’s cancer committee, of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields — including cell tower radiation — as possibly carcinogenic to humans. This puts RF radiation in the same category as DDT.

Our children are not just our progeny but the future of our state and our country. Keeping them safe must be a priority. Our homes must remain our sanctuaries. We currently have the option to turn wireless off at night, or to not use it at all. With SB 649 there is no “off” switch. Not only will SB 649 tie our hands as parents and private citizens, but this bill usurps ALL local control.

In a time that begs for strong compassionate leaders, we are turning to you to reject this bill, and work with independent health and technology experts from around the world to devise a safer solution so that we can stay connected yet protected.”

Then this letter is signed “Respectfully” by the 18 scientists. If you go here on I have linked to that article where there are many, many similar letters. Many are even more detailed and explain a lot more of the science than this one does. I was just trying to give you the flavor of this with this letter.

I am going to quote one more letter for you here. This one is an example of how many of these letters get into the actual details and science of this problem. This is a letter from Dr. Yael Stein MD to the FCC. I will quote the letter. Please read as much of it as you can. This is important. For an actual link to this article on the website click on this link: “Letter To The FCC From Dr. Yael Stein MD In Opposition To 5G Spectrum Frontiers“.

Topic: G5 millimeter wave technology (Sub Terahertz frequencies/ Sub-THz)

A group of physicists from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, together with several physicians, have researched “G5” millimeter wave technology (Sub Terahertz frequencies) and its interaction with the human body. I am a physician who participated in this research.

Human sweat glands as helical antennas:

The study of human sweat glands as helical antennas conducted by our group in Prof. Feldman’s lab, began by looking at images of the skin created by optical coherence tomography (OCT), which revealed that the tips of the sweat ducts that expel the sweat from the gland to the pore at the surface of the skin have a helical structure (Knuttel et al, 2004; Lademann, Otberg et al. 2007; Tripathi et al, 2015). This, and the fact that the dielectric permittivity of the dermis is higher than that of the epidermis, leads one to assume that, as electromagnetic entities, the sweat ducts could be regarded as imperfect helical antennas (Feldman, et al. 2008, 2009; Kawase and Hayashi, 2011; Yang, Donnan et al. 2011; Hayut et al, 2013, 2014).

The prediction of this simulation was that there would be an influence of the sweat duct on reflected signal around 90 GHz and an even increased sensitivity in higher frequencies. Proton hopping was suggested as the phenomenon that causes the conductivity inside the sweat gland. Taking into consideration a drop in the electric potential caused by the difference in the pH values between the skin surface (pH=5.5) and the dermis (pH=6.9), one can posit the existence of an electromotive force that would provide the necessary additional charge flow in the duct.

Thus, the sweat ducts possess all the required features to reveal antenna-like behavior in the extremely high frequency band (EHF band or the millimeter/submillimeter band).

These assumptions were supported by a series of computer simulations which showed that the spectral response of the ducts indeed coincides with the prediction of the antenna theory.


Computer simulations using the Finite Differences Time Domain (FDTD) method have clearly shown that sweat gland ducts are high absorption structures of mm-waves. SAR values were about one order of magnitude higher with the sweat gland ducts and highly localized to within the sweat gland ducts (Shafirstein and Moros, 2011). Temperatures computed using a bio-heat equation demonstrated that the temperature maximum was moved toward the epidermis which is populated by pain nerve fibers and heat-sensitive keratinocytes. This situation is closer to direct contact with a hot surface, indicating that exposure to high power GHz irradiation should result in a sudden acute pain response even without direct heating of the stratum corneum.

This phenomenon may potentially affect all humans and especially susceptible members of the public using or being exposed to communications devices in the sub-terahertz waveband.

It is advisable that the as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA) principle be adopted for uses of this technology, while a major cross‑disciplinary effort is generated to train researchers in bioelectromagnetics and provide monitoring of potential health impacts of RF‑EMF.

Summary of conclusions:

(1) Public exposure to millimeter waves, in the sub-Terahertz frequency range, is currently less common. If these devices fill the public space they will affect everyone, including the more susceptible members of the public: babies, pregnant women, the elderly, the sick and electro hypersensitive individuals.

(2) Human sweat ducts transmit and perhaps also receive electromagnetic waves that reflect the person’s emotional state, as an extension of the sympathetic nervous system that innervates sweat ducts

(3) These newly suggested physiologic and psychological functions of human sweat ducts have not yet been researched by neurophysiologists or by psychologists

(4) Computer simulations have demonstrated that sweat glands concentrate sub-terahertz waves in human skin. Humans could sense these waves as heat. The use of sub-terahertz (Millimeter wave) communications technology (cellphones, Wi Fi, antennas) could cause humans to percept physical pain via nociceptors.

(5) Potentially, if G5 WI FI is spread in the public domain we may expect more of the health effects currently seen with RF/ microwave frequencies including many more cases of hypersensitivity (EHS), as well as many new complaints of physical pain and a yet unknown variety of neurologic disturbances.

(6) It will be possible to show a causal relationship between G5 technology and these specific health effects. The affected individuals may be eligible for compensation.

Respected members of the FCC and U.S. Senate Committees,

Please protect Public Health and vote against exposure of the public to harmful G5 technology.

What Can We Do About 5G?

5G Cellphone WiFiThis is a very important question. You see it is the wireless feature of what they are trying to accomplish that causes the health problems. It needs to be wireless to be connected to moving vehicles such as self driving cars. I personally am not a fan of the whole self driving car anyway. I want to control my own safety and destiny. It is way too “big brother” for me anyway, to be totally honest.

However all of the rest of what they want to accomplish can be much more safely wired using things like EMF shielding fiber optic Ethernet cables. Signal traveling over cables like that are lightening fast and extremely reliable.

For things like smart houses and offices, all that they want to do could be done by fiber optic Ethernet cables. Connecting security systems, electronic garage doors, security computers and cameras, all of that type of stuff has no need to be wireless. For existing structures there is more cost to go back and wire these thing for sure. But that is a much safer option.

Internet Signal Over Existing Electrical Wiring – Not!

This is a very bad idea. Some people promote this as a cheap way to hard wire a building or home to prevent WiFi or RF Radiation. All you are doing is replacing cancer causing RF Radiation for cancer causing Dirty Electricity. Both are different forms of EMF (electromagnetic field) Radiation.

In this video below I test one of these systems designed to turn a wireless baby monitor into a “hard wired” safe baby monitor. Websites on the internet even today are promoting this as a inexpensive and safe alternative to wireless baby monitors. In the below video I set one of these systems up and test it with a meter and show you the extreme amount of cancer causing dirty electricity the system produces. Its a pretty good video and worth watching.

Become A WiFi Radiation Awareness Activist!

WiFi Radiation Tree HuggerThis is actually a very good and important idea. (I am only kidding with the image about hugging trees!) 5G is going to kill a lot of people. By kill lest I be accused of fear mongering, I mean it is going to give a lot of people cancer, which many will eventually die from. The roll out of 5G will put so much more of this harmful wireless signal around us that the affects scientists have measured from past wireless generations, will be magnified and multiplied.

Anything that you can do to search of scientific articles and print them off and take them to city council meetings is the kind of thing that needs to be done. Getting state representatives and senators on board with this and encouraging them to educate themselves and their colleagues is also very important.

Because they do!
