5G became one of the biggest buzzwords for 2019. As we enter 2020, no doubt you have seen the many commercials by the various telecom companies advertising their latest technology. But what exactly is 5G?

5G is the 5th Generation of wireless network technology.

1G delivered mobile voice calls.

2G introduced digital voice.

3G brought mobile data and web browsing.

4G ushered in the era of mobile internet and video.

5G will elevate the mobile network to not only interconnect people, but also interconnect and control machines, objects, and devices. It will enhance today’s mobile broadband services and will also expand mobile networks to support a vast diversity of devices and services. It will connect new industries with improved performance and efficiency. Not only will 5G improve your cell phone connection and give you faster download times, it is also the technology that allows for driverless cars, SMART devices to “talk” to each other, and it is the technology that will control the operations of the SMART cities of the very near future. This new era will leap ahead of current wireless technology and many say it will be as transformative as the automobile and electricity. All this new technology sounds great... right? Unfortunately, there is a downside that the telecommunications industry doesn’t like to talk about.

Let’s take a closer look...

4G & 5G

5G will be added to the current 4G infrastructure. They will work in tandem together. The main advantage that 5G offers over 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) is faster speeds. Primarily because there will be more spectrum available for 5G and it uses more advanced radio technology. It will also deliver much lower latency than 4G which enables new applications in the “Internet of Things” space. 5G requires millimeter wave high frequency bands. These mm wave frequencies travel short distances and can easily be blocked by such things as buildings and trees. While 4G LTE relies upon relatively few large masts that are built miles apart, 5G will require lots of “small cells” much closer together. These mini 5G base stations will be placed approximately every 500 feet in urban areas and neighborhoods. They will be placed on top of streetlights, utility poles, and on the sides & tops of buildings. They are being placed in front of homes, parks, and schools. Recently the FCC announced plans for a $19 billion dollar fund to help carriers deploy 5G services in rural America as well.

What’s the Problem?

Published peer reviewed science already indicates that the current wireless technology of 2G, 3G, and 4G creates radio frequency exposures which pose a serious health risk to humans, animals, and the environment. Scientists are cautioning that before this 5G technology is rolled out that research on human health effects urgently needs to be completed to ensure the public and environment are protected. More than 240 scientists and doctors from 41 nations published an appeal to the United Nations to reduce public exposure and called for a moratorium on 5G; citing “established” adverse biological effects from RF radiation. The 5G standard is new and there are absolutely no studies that have looked at long term human exposure. However, the current body of research on wireless radiation provides enough data for scientists to call for the moratorium. Regulations to protect public health and safety are inadequate and outdated. Published science proves harmful health effects from exposure to RF microwave radiation. Studies show a wide range of biological effects at levels far below current FCC exposure guidelines that were established 20 years ago. Unfortunately, the Federal Communications Commission, an independent government agency created in 1934, has become a “captured” agency. The FCC is dominated by the wireless industry itself. The agency that has been given the responsibility and privilege of setting the standards and limits for wireless radiation exposure are the same people profiting from it. The agency is comprised of industry insiders, engineers, and businessmen. There are no scientists, no doctors, and no one with a biological background. These are the telecom executives that are responsible for setting the standards for our safety. The FCC has set a thermal standard only. What scientists already know and can prove is that wireless radiation can damage our cells and DNA below thermal levels. More than 10,000 studies show the effects of non-thermal radiation. The FCC standard only takes into account a thermal limit that causes acute burning. The RF exposure limits set for the United States are 100 times higher than other countries like Russia, China, Italy, and Switzerland. We basically have an agency that completely avoids the problem.

This radiation will affect everyone, and with 4G/5G installations placed in every neighborhood, Americans will not be able to escape continuous involuntary exposure in their own homes and communities. The unborn child, small children, elderly, and people with chronic illness, microwave sickness, or compromised immune systems are particularly vulnerable.

Human health is already being compromised by wireless radiation. The recent $25 million NTP, National Toxicology Program, study provides conclusive evidence that exposure to wireless radiation causes cancer. Oxidative stress, a proven result of microwave exposure is a well-established factor that can lead to cancer, non-cancer conditions, and DNA damage. Microwave sickness is a recognized medical condition in the United States and many other parts of the world.

  • The World Health Organization has already classified radio frequency radiation as a possible Class 2B carcinogen.
  • Telecoms admit they do not know if their wireless technology is safe and warn that their revenues could be negatively impacted by health claims. Insurance companies will not insure telecoms against liability for exposure related health claims or other damages.

Taxpayers may be forced to bail out telecoms in the future class action lawsuits. The telecom industry and the commissioners of the FCC are rushing to deploy the next generation of wireless before these issues have been addressed. The “race” to be the first in 5G technology is one not worth winning if the cost exceeds the benefits. There are more than 1,000 scientific studies conducted by independent researchers from around the world concerning the biological effects of RF radiation.

Low level or non-ionizing wireless radio frequency exposure has been attributed to a long list of adverse biological effects:

  • DNA single and double stand breaks and mutations
  • Oxidative damage/Mitochondrial damage
  • Disruption of cell metabolism
  • Increased blood brain barrier permeability
  • Melatonin reduction
  • Disruption to brain glucose metabolism
  • Generation of stress proteins 

Symptoms from exposure to low level non-ionizing radiation can include:

  • Sleep disturbances/insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Depression and mood disorders
  • Tiredness and fatigue
  • Lack of concentration/ADHD
  • Changes in memory and cognition
  • Heart arrythmias and palpitations
  • Dizziness 
  • Irritability
  • Anxiety and restlessness
  • Tinnitus
  • Nose bleeds
  • Loss of appetite/nausea
  • Skin burning, itching, and tingling
  • Sperm changes, infertility, and miscarriage

These symptoms can be brought about by exposure to many wireless devices and the exposure is cumulative:

  • Microwave ovens
  • Smart meters
  • Bluetooth devices
  • Computers
  • Cell phones
  • MRIs
  • Cell towers in proximity to your environment

Even with the myriad of documented adverse health effects and potential disastrous effects to our environment, the 5G deployment is moving ahead. Imagine living 24 hours a day in a full body back scanner at the airport. This is what our environment will be like when 5G small cells are placed every 500 feet in our neighborhoods. The back scanners use the same mm wave technology. It is also the same technology that is used for crowd control by the military. The Active Denial System uses mm wave frequencies to disperse crowds by causing a burning, stinging sensation to the skin. Along with these uses, 5G will also provide the technology to collect and share data and provide for 24 hours surveillance. Is this the type of technology we want in our communities? 

Once these “small cells” are in place and turned on, there will be nowhere to escape. It will no longer be an option. You and your family will be exposed to radiation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Any smart device you have will be connected and monitored. Along with the small cells that we can visualize in our environment, there have also been an estimated 20,000 5G satellites deployed into space so that every square inch of Earth is covered. Unlike other hazardous exposures, radiation cannot be seen, cannot be detected by smell, and often cannot be felt. But make no mistake, it is an ever-present danger that needs to be considered. Each and every exposure is cumulative and causing harm.

“Putting in tens of millions of 5G antennae without a single biological test of safety has got to be about the stupidest idea anyone has had in the history of the world.” ~Dr. Martin Pall, Biochemist~

The Schuman Resonance and our Magnetic Earth

We must remember that we are “beings of frequency.” The Schuman Resonance or frequency, which is 7.83hz, is considered the heartbeat of the Earth. “The Pulse of Life Itself.”  Humans are tuned to the resonant vibration of Earth. We vibrate at a frequency that ranges from 5-10hz. Studies have shown that people emitting a frequency closer to 7.83hz are more at peace and healthier. When we are in sync with the Earth’s natural vibration the body is able to heal and have increased vitality. This pulse or frequency has been shown to be identical to the alpha waves of the human brain, which controls our creativity, our performance, our stress and anxiety levels, and affects our immune system. Humans are not the only ones affected by electromagnetic fields. A diverse array of animal life relies upon the Earth’s magnetic field for navigation, breeding, feeding, migration, and survival. Biologists have discovered that wireless electromagnetic radiation disturbs internal magneto-receptors used for navigation as well as disrupting other complex cellular and biological processes in mammals, birds, fish, insects, trees, plants, seeds, and bacteria with profound impacts on the natural environment. Researchers are now attributing Radio Frequency Radiation from cellular telecommunications to be a contributing cause of bee “colony collapse disorder,” insect disappearance, and a decrease in the bird population. Radiation from cell towers and SMART meters has also been shown to negatively impact trees and plant life.

 It is easy to become disconnected with the Earth’s natural vibration in today’s society. Many people rarely spend time outdoors in nature. We have become saturated with technological devices that emit electromagnetic fields that interfere with our natural resonance with the planet. Wireless radiation in the MHz, GHz, and THz is literally millions, billions, and trillions times the normal frequency of Earth. You can imagine the impact that this has on our health and consciousness. A recent study indicates that the Schuman Resonance frequency of 7.83Hz can inhibit the growth of cancer cells. It also showed inhibitory effects to decrease as frequencies increased.

What can we do to protect ourselves?

  • Return to nature. Spend time outdoors. Use Grounding and Earthing techniques to reestablish your connection with the Schuman Resonance.
  • Raise your own frequency to a state of peace – using prayer and meditation.
  • Strengthen your immune system with a healthy diet, organic food, and exercise.
  • Plant trees in your yard to help block the 5G mm waves.
  • Reduce your exposure to wireless devices. Keep cell phones away from your head, out of pockets, and away from your body.
  • Use the speaker mode when talking on your phone. The greater the distance away from your body, the safer.
  • Place phones in airplane mode when not in use. Never sleep with your cell phone by your bedside.
  • Use wired connections and turn Wi-Fi off at night.
  • Purchase an EMF detector so you can measure and pinpoint areas of danger in your home and take action.
  • Get rid of cordless “deck” phones. They are more dangerous than cell phones.
  • Remove SMART meters from your home.
  • Use protective measures such as shields that can be placed on phones and computers to decrease radiation exposure.
  • Clothing and hats are available that are lined with a silver mesh to block the EMFs when in areas of increased exposure.
  • RF shielding paint is available for home use.
  • Do not allow children to spend unlimited amounts of time on wireless devices.
  • Infants and children are extremely sensitive to the risk of EMFs due to their developing brains and bodies. Even the AAP has issued a warning on this. Click Here: American Academy of Pediatrics Letter to the FCC
  • Pregnant women should take extra precautions due to the harmful effects of radiation to the developing fetus. Pregnant women in China wear protective aprons that shield the fetus all the way around.
  • Ultimately practice self-care and take control of your environment. Wireless radiation poses a real hazard to our health. We can expect 5G radiation to be more hazardous than 3G and 4G because of the higher more intense frequencies and vast amount of antennas.

Taking Action

Get involved!

Be informed and educated on this issue. Hold your government officials responsible for protecting your safety and health. Go to your community councils, local societies, and community organizations. Educate them on this technology and let them know you do not want it in your community. Schedule meetings and send emails to your local, state, and federal representatives. Let them know that this technology violates our basic Civil Rights!

  • It violates our right to maintain the safety and security of our home.
  • It violates the right to protect our family.
  • It violates our basic human right to live safely and in a healthy manner in our own home.
  • It has taken away our choice and consent in being exposed to a technology that has serious health repercussions.

Most states already have bills that allow for the 5G infrastructure to continue unimpeded. Ohio voted in favor of HB 478, “Small Cell Expansion Act.” This bill eliminated municipal control over small cell installation. Ohio HB 478 needs to be overturned!

The wireless telecom companies seem to be in control. Congress has formalized 5G deployment without public notification or consent. Local municipalities say their hands are tied in halting the small cell deployment. They cite the Telecommunications Act of 1996 which gave the FCC the power to regulate the environmental health and safety effects of wireless radiation. In Section 704 of the 1996 Telecommunications Act it specifically prohibits the discussion of environmental concerns or health concerns in the placement of cell towers. This is despite growing awareness and scientific confirmation of both environmental and health effects from exposure to cell tower radiation and all radio frequency wireless devices. Section 704 also specifically bans local and state governments from setting their own environmental standards for wireless radiation and human exposure. Section 704 must be overturned, and control given back to our local municipalities that can govern the health and safety of their residents. Cities in the United States and throughout the world are saying “No” to 5G deployment until further safety testing has been completed. Unfortunately, many people are completely unaware of this technology and the dangers it poses. We must continue to inform others and have a united voice in opposition. Recently American scientists, doctors, and healthcare practitioners sent a letter to President Trump asking for a moratorium on 5G.
