5G is the extension to 4G LTE, the technology and frequencies used in all modern cell phones. 4G like it’s predecessors 3G and 2G, use longer wavelengths, and lower frequencies allowing them to pass through objects and travel longer distances easier. The longer distance and penetration however come at a cost of slower data rates and an aging infrastructure that was never designed for “always on” and streaming connectivity.
The next evolution of cellular technology, 5G allows for faster data speeds of up to 10Gbps vs the 100Mbps maximum on 4G. This fast data rate comes at a sever disadvantage. The higher frequencies needed have poor range and require antennas on almost ever street.
Studies have already shown negative health effects from exposure to cell phone radiation which would already increase with 5G exposure.
- Mobile Phone Base Station Tower Settings Adjacent to School Buildings: Impact on Students’ Cognitive Health.– Students near cell phone towers expirienced impacts on motor skills, memory and attention.
- Exposure of Insects to Radio-Frequency Electromagnetic Fields from 2 to 120 GHz”- Demonstrated insects, particularly honey bees absorb higher frequencies of EMF radiation which leads to changes in insect behavior.
- The US National Toxicology Program (NTP) Study on Cell Phone Radiation– Found clear evidence of cancer, heart damage, and DNA damage in rats exposed to cell phone radiation. The study also found the same cancer type in humans exposed to cell phone use for 10 years.
- The Ramazzini Institute (RI) Study on Base Station RF– Found the same type of cancer in rats near cellular base stations as the NTP study.
The WHO has even labelled cell phone radiation as a possible carcinogen. As the truth of the damaging health and environmental effects of 5G become public, it is up to us to tell our elected officials we don’t want it in our towns, cities, and states. But this is only one side of the dangers of 5G. A cell tower on every street is a perfect way to create an omnipresent grid to see everywhere you go, everything you search, read, post and watch.
