Is 5G Radiation Dangerous?

5G Network And Health Risks

2020 will be the year society launches a 5th generation network system. This 5G system will require approximately 750,000 new cellular towers to be installed in the United States as well as launching 20,000 satellites. 

These satellites will help with the globalization of the network and will use the same type of phased array antennas that will be used by the ground-based 5G systems.This means that they will send tightly focused beams of intense microwave radiation at each specific 5G device that is on the Earth and each device will send a beam of radiation back to the satellite.


Science, Studies, And 5G

Over 240 scientists from 41 different Nations are concerned about health risks that 5G radio frequencies pose and have given warnings to the FCC and CDC in regards to human health and the development of 5G.

Radio frequency radiation emitted by 2G and 3G cell phones is associated with increased risk for tumors in rats, but the implications for humans are less clear, according to a final report from the National Toxicology Program (NTP). For male rats, the 10-year study found clear evidence of an association with cell phone radiation and malignant schwannomas (heart tumors) and some evidence for malignant gliomas in brains and pheochromocytomas in adrenal glands. For female rats and for mice, the evidence was equivocal. The rats involved in the study but not introduced to radiation showed no signs of any tumors. This study did not measure radiation exposure associated with 5G or WiFi networks. 

Without dosimetric determination or study of the possible health effects, scientists are urging for more studies before the rollout of 5G. Unfortunately, telecommunication companies are pushing faster for the rollout of this new network system, disregarding concerns of many scientists around the world.

Radio Frequencies and Radiation (EMF)

Electromagnetic fields (EMF) are generated in the vicinity of power lines, mobile phones, mobile phone towers, broadcast towers and similar transmitters. Whether or not EMF can harm human health is a controversial issue. 

1G, 2G, 3G and 4G use between 1 and 5 gigahertz frequency, 5G uses between 24 and 90 gigahertz frequency. 5G radiation is best to be compared with that of a microwave oven. Yes, that death box machine that poses many health concerns emitting enough radiation to scramble living cells, including DNA.The Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association has said in a statement that radiofrequency energy from networks such as 5G “has not been shown to cause health problems, according to the consensus of the international scientific community.” The FCC has determined what it calls safe levels of emissions, and says that technology that complies with its standards can’t be prohibited. Although many government studies claim these frequencies to be safe, regulations from the FCC are decades old and continue to be degraded and ignored.

If it is safe, then why are scientists urging for further studies on the risks of environmental and health concerns?

Hmmm, something smells fishy!


Money Talks

In January 2017, President Donald Trump appointed Ajit Pai, a former lawyer for Verizon Communications, to the position of Director of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Pai has advocated for the weakening of state and local regulations regarding the deployment 5G.

With 5G being a global network, telecommunication companies are pushing development faster and faster in this competitive market.

In 2018, FCC commissioner, Brendan Carr, announced a plan to streamline the environmental review process for 5G infrastructure, claiming it could cut costs for the telecommunications companies by as much as 80%.

With development well underway and testbeds already live across the world, 5G networks are expected to launch across the world by 2020, working alongside existing 3G and 4G technology to provide speedier connections that stay online no matter where you are.
