The potential dangers of 5G are very real. Here’s what you need to know
By Jody McCutcheon
As the old saying goes, give us an inch and inevitably we’ll want a mile. And certainly, this sentiment is true with technology.
Who doesn’t want faster, bigger (or smaller), more efficient? Take wireless mobile telecommunications. Our current broadband cellular network platform, 4G (or fourth generation), allows us to transmit data faster than 3G and everything that preceded. We can access information faster now than ever before in history. What more could we want? Oh, yes, transmission speeds powerful enough to accommodate the (rather horrifying) so-called Internet of Things. Which brings us to 5G.
Until now, mobile broadband networks have been designed to meet the needs of people. But 5G has been created with machines’ needs in mind, offering low-latency, high-efficiency data transfer. It achieves this by breaking data down into smaller packages, allowing for faster transmission times. Whereas 4G has a fifty-millisecond delay, 5G data transfer will offer a mere one-millisecond delay–we humans won’t notice the difference, but it will permit machines to achieve near-seamless communication. Which in itself may open a whole Pandora’s box of trouble for us – and our planet.
More bandwidth – more dangers of 5G
Let’s start with some basic background on 5G technology. Faster processing speeds require more bandwidth, yet our current frequency bandwidths are quickly becoming saturated. The idea behind 5G is to use untapped bandwidth of the extremely high-frequency millimeter wave (MMW), between 30GHz and 300GHz, in addition to some lower and mid-range frequencies.
High-frequency MMWs travel a short distance. Furthermore, they don’t travel well through buildings and tend to be absorbed by rain and plants, leading to signal interference. Thus, the necessary infrastructure would require many smaller, barely noticeable cell towers situated closer together, with more input and output ports than there are on the much larger, easier to see 4G towers. This would likely result in wireless antennas every few feet, on every lamp post and utility pole in your neighbourhood.
Here are some numbers to put the dangers of 5G into perspective: as of 2015, there were 308,000 wireless antennas on cell towers and buildings. That’s double the 2002 number. Yet 5G would require exponentially more, smaller ones, placed much closer together, with each emitting bursts of radiofrequency radiation (RFR)–granted, at levels much lower than that of today’s 4G cell towers–that will be much harder to avoid because these towers will be ubiquitous. If we could see the RFR, it would look like a smog that’s everywhere, all the time.
Serious health concerns
First, it’s important to know that in 2011, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classified RFR as a potential 2B carcinogen and specified that the use of mobile phones could lead to specific forms of brain tumors.
Many studies have associated low-level RFR exposure with a litany of health effects, including:
- DNA single and double-strand breaks (which leads to cancer)
- oxidative damage (which leads to tissue deterioration and premature ageing)
- disruption of cell metabolism
- increased blood-brain barrier permeability
- melatonin reduction (leading to insomnia and increasing cancer risks)
- disruption of brain glucose metabolism
- generation of stress proteins (leading to myriad diseases)
As mentioned, the new 5G technology utilizes higher-frequency MMW bands, which give off the same dose of radiation as airport scanners. The effects of this radiation on public health have yet to undergo the rigours of long-term testing. Adoption of 5G will mean more signals carrying more energy through the high-frequency spectrum, with more transmitters located closer to people’s homes and workplaces–basically a lot more (and more potent) RFR flying around us – and our environment. It’s no wonder that apprehension exists over potential risks, to both human and environmental health.
Perhaps the strongest concern involves adverse effects of MMWs on human skin. This letter to the Federal Communications Commission, from Dr Yael Stein of Jerusalem’s Hebrew University, outlines the main points. Over ninety percent of microwave radiation is absorbed by the epidermis and dermis layers, so human skin basically acts as an absorbing sponge for microwave radiation. Disquieting as this may sound, it’s generally considered acceptable so long as the violating wavelengths are greater than the skin layer’s dimensions. But MMW’s violate this condition.
Furthermore, the sweat ducts in the skin’s upper layer act like helical antennas, which are specialized antennas constructed specifically to respond to electromagnetic fields. With millions of sweat ducts, and 5G’s increased RFR needs, it stands to reason that our bodies will become far more conductive to this radiation. The full ramifications of this fact are presently unclear, especially for more vulnerable members of the public (e.g., babies, pregnant women, the elderly), but this technology
What’s more, MMWs may cause our pain receptors to flare up in recognition of the waves as damaging stimuli. Consider that the US Department of Defense already uses a crowd-dispersal method called the Active Denial System, in which MMWs are directed at crowds to make their skin feel like it’s burning, and also has the ability to basically microwave populations to death from afar with this technology if they choose to do so. And the telecommunications industry wants to fill our atmosphere with MMWs?
5G harms animals, most of all
Unfortunately, innocent animals have already been the victims of testing to see MMW’s effects on living cells. Extrapolating the results from animal testing to humans isn’t straightforward, but the results nonetheless raise some serious red flags. Perhaps most significantly, a US National Toxicology Program study noted that male rats exposed to RFR for nine hours a day over two years developed rare forms of tumours in the brain and heart, and rats of both sexes developed DNA damage.
The researchers noted that the increased risk to the rats was relatively small; but if these findings translate to humans, the widespread increase in cellphone use could have a significant impact on populations. Thus the NTP study served to renew the debate about the potential harmful effects of cellphones on human health. Not only that, it caused a significant shift in the American Cancer Society’s understanding of radiation and cancer, and sparked them to state that our ignorance of RFR’s impact on human health could be compared to our previous obliviousness to the connection between smoking and lung cancer.
Other animal research worldwide illustrates how microwave radiation in general and MMW’s in particular can damage the eyes and immune system, cell growth rate, even bacterial resistance. An experiment at the Medical Research Institute of Kanazawa Medical University showed that 60GHz millimeter-wave antennas produce thermal injuries in rabbit eyes, with thermal effects reaching below the eye’s surface.
This study, meanwhile, suggests low-level MMW’s caused lens opacity–a precursor to cataracts–in rats’ eyes. A Chinese study demonstrated that eight hours’ of microwave radiation damaged rabbits’ lens epithelial cells. A Pakistani study concluded that exposure to mobile phone EMF prevented chicken embryo retinal cells from properly differentiating.
This Russian study revealed that exposing healthy mice to low-intensity, extremely high-frequency electromagnetic radiation severely compromised their immune systems. And a 2016 Armenian study concluded that low-intensity MMW’s not only depressed the growth of E. coli and other bacteria, but also changed certain properties and activity levels of the cells. The same Armenian study noted that MMW interaction with bacteria could lead to antibiotic resistance – distressing news, considering immunity to bacteria is already compromised due to the overuse of antibiotics.
Finally, this study and this one make the most worrying observations of all. They state that various animal studies show a significant effect of microwaves in the 5G frequency range on mammals, avian species, and insect pollinators such as honey bees. These frequencies interfere with the migratory and nesting patterns of birds, as well as their reproductive habits, and kill off the insects they need to eat to survive. There even appears to be a negative impact on plant life in the vicinity of cellphone towers, to the point where there are notable decreases in fruit and other crop yields.
Again, if these findings translate to humans, our rampant cellphone use would likely cause profound, adverse health effects; an increase in MMW’s as more bandwidth is introduced could further complicate the matter.
What’s important to note here is that the danger of 5G technology can not only have a profound impact on human health, but on the health of all living organisms it touches, including plants, as we shall see in more detail, below.
The dangers of 5G extends to the planet, too
Equally disturbing, 5G technology puts environmental health at risk in a number of ways.
First, MMWs may pose a serious threat to plant health. This 2010 study showed that the leaves of aspen seedlings exposed to RFR exhibited symptoms of necrosis, while other studies state that EMF frequencies have found physiological and morphological changes, in plants, as well as increased micronuclei formation, altered growth and adverse cell characteristics, such as thinner cell walls and smaller mitochondria. Plant irradiation is bad news for the planet’s flora, but it’s bad news for us, too: it could contaminate our food supply.
Secondly, the 5G infrastructure poses a serious threat to our planet’s atmosphere. Network implementation will require the deployment of many, short-lifespan satellites via suborbital rockets propelled by hydrocarbon rocket engines. According to this 2010 California study, launching these rockets will vomit enough black carbon into the atmosphere to pollute global atmospheric conditions, affecting distribution of ozone and temperature. Worse, solid-state rocket exhaust contains chlorine, an ozone-destroying chemical. Additionally, beaming 5G down from space will interfere with our planet’s Schumann Resonance, the frequency naturally emitted from the Earth, which regulates the circadian rhythms of all living things. How can any government seriously concerned about climate change allow for this?
Thirdly, 5G will potentially threaten entire natural ecosystems. According to several reports over the last two decades–some of which are summarized here–low-level, non-ionizing microwave radiation affects insect, bird and bee health. It drives birds from their nests and causes plume deterioration, locomotion problems, reduced survivorship and death. Bee populations suffer from reduced egg-laying abilities of Queen bees and smaller colony sizes. Insects die off, meaning amphibians, birds and reptiles starve.
More evidence of ecosystem disruption comes from this 2012 meta-study, which indicates that 593 of 919 research studies suggest that RFR adversely affects plants, animals and humans.
It bears repeating: 5G is bad news for all living creatures and the planet we share.
Beware the propaganda deluge
Despite being fully aware of all these unsettling results, threats and concerns, the US corporatocracy continues to maintain a gung-ho attitude about 5G. The Mobile Now Act was passed in 2016, and many US states have since gone ahead with 5G plans. The telecom industry’s biggest players have basically co-opted government powers to enforce their 5G agenda, with companies like AT&T and Qualcomm having begun live testing. And despite research showing serious threats to humans and the planet, the FCC Chairman announced intentions to open low-, mid- and high-frequency spectrums, without even mentioning a single word about the dangers.
They’re going to sell this to us as ‘faster browsing speeds’ – but the truth is, you’ll barely even notice the difference. They’re going to call anyone who protests against 5G a ‘Luddite’ or ‘technophobe’ or a ‘conspiracy theorist’ – despite the tens of thousands of peer reviewed studies that demonstrate clearly how damaging 5G is. Recently, information about 5G and groups protesting its roll out have been censored; wiped off the internet.
We need to ask: why such a willingness to embrace another new technology – even though it carries serious risks and brings spurious benefits? Why not heed the lessons learned from killer products like asbestos, tobacco and leaded gasoline?
Because a tiny percentage of people will gain an awful lot of money, is one reason. And because companies and governments will be given unprecedented amounts of power over civilians is the other.
All isn’t doom and gloom, though. At least one US politician is maintaining some level-headedness: in October, California Governor Jerry Brown stopped legislation that would have allowed the telecom industry to inundate the state with mini-towers. Brown’s bold actions have permitted localities a say in where and how many cell towers are placed.
The state of Hawaii has stopped 5G and smart meters by collectively threatening to charge every person who installed such meters with liability for any health problems residents may suffer. Moreover, 180 scientists have started a petition to warn of the dangers of 5G, especially its potential health effects. Maybe these actions will afford more time for additional studies and data collection. Just as importantly, maybe they’ll cause other politicians and figureheads to reflect on what they’ve been pushing for.
In the meantime, we as individuals must do everything we can to protect ourselves against the dangers of 5G. Here’s what you can do:
- Understand EMFs and their behaviours. Unfortunately, most commercial radiation detectors can only check for 4G and 3G, though.
- Plant trees. Tons of trees. Trees block 5G signals.
- Protect yourself with an EMF Shield to mark and protect you from hotspots. Try a patented product that neutralizes the harmful effects of mobile phones and other EMF emitting devices on humans.
- Whenever possible, limit your exposure: use an anti-radiation headset or speaker mode while talking on a cellphone.
- Spread the word! These stickers are a great way to embed the dangers of 5G in the public consciousness.
- Learn more. This network has tons of great information and ideas on how to protect yourself.
- Just refuse to use 5G phones and devices. Full stop. And discourage those you know from doing so.
- Refuse to buy anything ‘smart’ – ‘smart’ appliances, ‘smart’ heaters, etc.
- Some believe that carrying shungite crystals can offer some protection from radiation – not too sure about this one, though it can’t hurt, I suppose.
- No matter what, do NOT get a smart meter – these put high levels of 5G radiation right in your home
- Join the growing numbers of dissenters against the dangers of 5G. Get active with them here.
- Do as the Hawaiians have done and threaten smart meter and 5G tech installers with liability and class action lawsuits. You can learn how to do that here.
- Spread the word! Please share this article with everyone you know, Print out these posters, below and slip them into people’s mailboxes. Post them on street lights.
Even if the policy drivers and governments aren’t doing their due diligence, at least we can say we’re doing ours.

93 thoughts on “Frightening Frequencies: The Dangers of 5G”
In his book EMF*D, about 5G, Wi-Fi and Cell Phones, Dr Joseph Mercola included this article as a web reference, which is how I found your site! Having found your site, I’ve read many more interesting articles, which I’d give a ‘like’ to if I could from my WordPress account and follow this blog accordingly.
Thanks for the info, we didn’t know that! Happy to follow your blog, looks cool!
It’s too late to post my comment, but I think it might help others.
The problem about cellular phone technology were the Electro Magnetic Field (EMF) or Electro Magnetic Radiation (EMR).
The telecommunications industry is so powerful because most people wanted wireless technology and we could not prevent them from deploying 5G on earth and in the sky.
It also scares me BUT we must think about how we can avoid and survive the EMF/EMR from not entering our body.
This is the source of EMF/EMR
After seeing that lightning is the natural source of EMF, it came to my mind the tall building.
I saw lightning strike a coconut three and on the nearby building, the surge damage all the appliances that were plugged into the AC socket.
On tall buildings they install lightning arrestor with copper wire running down to the ground. It protects all electronic equipment from power surges.
I imagined that if I am the tall building, how can I protect myself from EMF/EMR from cellular phone towers and cellular phones.
I am now over 67 years of age. On June 2010, I was diagnosed with T2 diabetes. From 2010 – 2012, it was very difficult for me to manage my diabetes.
In 2012, I saw videos in YouTube about grounding/earthing. I made research for it and tested it in my body.
A lot of the videos I watched on YouTube were already missing.
It was awesome. My symptoms have cleared up even when I eat a lot and my blood sugar is skyrocketing. I tried to eat what my teenaged girls eat and I don’t feel dizzy.
Then I found Dr. Magda Havas video about live blood analysis and dirty electricity (EMF)
I thought that the increase in blood sugar is only caused by the food we eat, which is why our red blood cells are coagulated….
Coagulated blood may increase our blood pressure because the red blood cells stick to one another.
I continued my research and saw this video…
The following video shows a coagulated blood becomes normal after 45 minutes of connecting our body to the ground.
Another proof from Adelaide Australia about earthing…
I was so eager to learn more and I found out that the free electron that was in the earth causes our blood plasma to be charge with negative ion and because of that both sides of our red blood cells, the convex and the concave side became negatively charge and those that stick each other separate normally. it’s like a magnet, like poles repel each other but unlike poles attract each other.
I was thinking why EMF or Electro Magnetic Field that carried electrons, when hits our skin makes our blood plasma positively charge and causes blood coagulation in our red blood cell and why the electron from the ground when enters our body it charges our body with negative ions and make us alkaline.
The answer it came to my mind is the frequency of EMF wave. Our skin has acid mantle ( https://tinyurl.com/2ptz7ynf ) and when high frequency EMF hits our skin, the acid mantle is disturbed and perhaps push into the inner part of our body and makes us acidic or positively charge.
BUT, if we are connected to the ground like tall building, the emf will not enter our body but it is discharge to the ground.
My conclusion so as not to be affected by EMF from MMW and others like mouse, keyboards and other household appliances, I lay a #14 copper wire from the grounding rod buried 10 feet to the ground to my computer table, to my bed, to our dining room and other places that I stay most of the time. I bought 925 silver necklace and connect a soft speaker wire to the #12 stranded wire using a crocodile clip into my neck.
With the help of GOD, I have been using it for almost 11 years now and I am fine even though my normal blood glucose is 200 mg/dL but I have no symptoms. Sometimes it reached to 360mg/dL.
My son and two daughters are also grounded/earthed most of the time. About two years ago my youngest daughter complained about pain in her eye because she had astigmatism. When I check the grounding cable in her bed, it was cut. I connected it again and everything was back to normal.
In countries where the wall outlet is grounded (https://tinyurl.com/2h6b7et2) you can connect a speaker wire BUT make sure nothing is connected to neutral and hot sockets.
There are many videos in youtube about grounding/earthing. Watch them to learn more.
Thanks for the useful info!

I’m paying $1400 a month for an apartment I can no longer live in. I can’t live there because of the cell tower placed in close proximity in late Dec 2019. Being in my home gives me headaches (which just started with the tower) and major ADHD. Killer on the concentration. I have a meter and I am never able to escape cell phone currents. The problem is rampant in the city I live in since 5g already majorly rolled out (based on measurements I am taking). Major eye problems too which resolve when I leave the city. Cataract like effects and stabbing pains too. Other issues too – gone once I can get away from cell towers – although I can see it is getting harder and harder to escape, even in rural areas. I consider myself to be a refugee already.
Thanks for sharing your story, Tina! That’s terrifying. It seems the only way out is through direct citizen action and lawsuits. Surely your neighbours feel the same symptoms? Maybe you could gather together to fight this?
5G is big business at the cost of whatever or whoever. Capitalism is an extreme form of greed. This country is built on unethical practices from theft, murder and slavery to abortion, alcohol and tobacco products. This current pandemic is only one example of what Capitalist are involved in. Before anyone gets to the bottom of this one, the next diabolical plan is in place. The American people have lost control of this country to mad scientists and crooks.
Unfortunately, couldn’t agree more, Robert 🙁
Question for anyone?
I am pleased that all of you have zero- in on health issues. There is another concern that 5G will increase the capacity for surveillance and collecting data on all of us. Any thoughts on this issue?
Secondly, how does one find a local group/task force that helps each other to organize and support the subject on the awareness of the exposures of 5G?
Looking forward to your thoughts and ideas.
Yes, increased surveillance is a serious issue. I personally think the best way forward is to slip flyers under people’s doors – ones like this https://www.facebook.com/Stop5GFlorida/photos/pcb.2244108899193567/2244106572527133/?type=3&theater. I will put them in the article, too.
Hope that helps?
“Some believe that carrying shungite crystals can offer some protection from radiation” Wow!
‘Some’. Who? And they ‘believe’ this? Or do ‘they’ actually know, with any basis/references for this, and test results showing how much protection (using maybe the kind of ‘good quality radiation detectors’ mentioned above?) Tnx!
Hi Henry! Here is some info https://emfacademy.com/shungite-complete-honest-guide/ Hope that helps? Personally, I think it can probably help block EMFs from say, 1 phone, but is useless if you live near a mast tower
The movie bird box on Netflix is about 5G. The end says are near. Be ready
Dr. Devra Davis has been doing research for over 10 years on the dangers of EMF’s, her sight is ehtrust.org. She has traveled the globe informing the public of the evidence of harm. Also, she has a lot of information on 5G as well. We absolutely do not want 5G until their has been tests proving it is safe. Please use wired ethernet connections and research and research. In 2004 LA firefighters had 2G cell towers removed because of damage to their brains. Now cell towers are not allowed next to any fire stations there, because they had strong lobby. We need to lobby for ourselves, be informed and inform others.
Thanks for this great info and your comments Deborah!
Excellent. As a medical researcher over 20 years much of the info above was known to me.
When a friends 18 yr old don developed brain cancer i asked does he use a cell phone. Dad said all the time. The cancer was on the side where he used his phone. Just one of many examples.
I will explore the skin connection.
As a nutritional expert there are done nutrients that help the body fight radiation and improve immune function.
First most importantly we should fight for legislation requiring warning on all children under 18. Especially those under 10. When the cells are replicating faster they are most sensitive. Similar to the known effects as chemo.
There are different types of cataracts caused by microwaves. They cause scarring on the inside of the lens – instead of the more common type on the outside of the lens. Per book written in 1977.
Since i use lasers in performing tattoo removal i only use lasers over 400nm because they are non ionizing.
Other drs have recommended air tube headsets for cell phones. Im going to look into them.

Nutrient density is do important. I say save your life with your fork and knife.

No 5G in the world from gopal das belgium ypres
no 5G in the world save the planet now for it is to late
Separate the sheep from the goats. Restaurants have smoking and non smoking sections. They should have emitter and non emitter sections.
So the evil global elite will kill all their customers by giving them cancer within next decade and nobody will be left to serve them..
Well, if you’re thinking along those lines, AI will be taking over many, many, many jobs soon….we humans may soon be obsolete anyway!
I’m sorry, but all the linked sources are articles just as radical as this article (look below for “pbs.org”). These articles propagate unnecessary fear throughout society just for monetary gain of these media agencies who are desperate for a single view of the article. The ideas challenged in this article are fundamental to year 10 science; ionising and non-ionising radiation. The “electromagnetic waves” that are so called dangerous exist in nature at high amounts, as noise. All we do is manipulate the wave, allowing you to send information as 0’s and 1’s at the speed of light (the fastest known speed).
This is because of E=hv, which means that the higher the frequency of the wave, the more energy is transferred per wave. Visible light is in the middle of this spectrum, while UV rays from the sun are on the dangerous side, and radio waves are on the opposite side (i.e. THE SAFER SIDE).
In extremely high amounts these waves can cause damage, but that is if you talk on the phone for hours every day with the phone next to your head, which is pretty unhealthy and who does that…
The title of the PBS article has a somewhat clickbait title. This is a direct quote from the first PBS Article:
“All this really does is provide a couple of answers but raise even more questions. ”
Next time use some source with “.edu” in them. That shows legitimate academic research.
P.S. If you were graded on your sources by a proper teacher for this article, you wouldn’t pass.
You say “In extremely high amounts these waves can cause damage, but that is if you talk on the phone for hours every day with the phone next to your head, which is pretty unhealthy and who does that…” Well, the thing is, in offices with dozens of computers, or in apartments with thousands of wifi routers, mobile phones, laptops, smart TVs, smart meters and smart appliances all packed within short distances of each other (as is the case in most densely populated cities), we are talking about a hell of a lot of radiation, no?
To protect ourselves from this inadequately studied technology we need to stop them from deploying 5G by contacting our towns and telling them to not allow the wireless carriers from installing base stations everywhere and therefore inundating us with these MMWs
YES! Take action with your local politicians!
its ridiculous how many of you do not even say one word about the legitimacy of this article, any one checked out what they are using as source?
the sources are hyperlinked in the text
And they’re all not proven or backed up at all. Most of the articles say the opposite of what this one says.
Yes – because they are funded by the phone industry! But even they admit the technology has zero proof of being safe https://takebackyourpower.net/senate-hearing-wireless-industry-confesses-no-studies-showing-5g-safety/
Can someone list here in this comment section any ongoing RFR 5G protest groups here in the states or anywhere else in the world… that concerned citizens may join them and help stop this silent danger. By the way I agree with the article except for ‘shungite crystals’ to protect from radiation which is very silly and does not work. I am telling folks to disable all wifi and never use wifi in their invironment. Also to literally throw away the microwave… and concerning the smart meter see if you can opt out of the smart meter with your electric company and have them install the old analog system instead. Oh the biggie… switch to a landline phone (but still use the speaker phone button on the landline phone because it too emits EMF frequencies though not RFR frequencies they are both bad for our health). Just totally turn OFF your cell phone and keep in car for emergencies ONLY! I got a cheap one for my car for only $15.oo a month with consumer cellular. I also bought an RFR meter and an EMF meter to measure my invironment so I would know where the hot spots are that are so high that I may fix the problems such as the suggestions I mentioned earlier. Oh… if you live near a power line OR a cell phone tower that is really close… simply… you need to move. That is way to much EMF pollution near you and will eventually make you sick. It is a matter of time. If you move to the country make sure before you buy a piece of property to have both these meters with you… to check the area… both the RF and the EMF meters. I got both mine on amazon. I highly recommend the RF Accoustimeter and the EMF Meterk meter (I think that is how you spell them). Hope these suggestions helps folks. I know because those 2 meters educated me on these things. Amazing meters. It is a must to have them… else it is like the blind leading the blind. They clearly show you how bad or not so bad your environment is. The RF meter or RFR (radio frequency radiation) checks things like power lines near you, house wiring in your walls, appliances in your home such as blow driers, electric can openers, and the heavier duty wiring in your walls for your washer dryer and washing machine… also old refrigerators are really bad I found and clock radios. AS for the EMF (electromagnetic field and or frequencies) meter you can test your cell phone (you can get a shield case for that), smart meter, cell phone towers, microwaves and wifi devices… which are REALLY bad for you. Hope this helps.
Classic. Don’t know what they’re talking about, don’t trust anyone, don’t even want to try and understand the changing world. Why should they all stop using WiFi? Because you’re scared it’s gonna hurt you? You’re scared that a wave type less dangerous than visible light is going to hurt you, and you’re scared that micro waves contained inside a microwave are also going to hurt you, which are also less harmful than visible light (by the way can you give an example of visible light harming you? No. Skin cancer is caused by UV light, which is more harmful than visible light, and that barely does anything unless it’s in high doses). For 5G to harm you it would need to be beamed at your head, with almost impossible amounts of power to even start to harm you. You also clearly don’t know what to believe as you’re reading this on a device that will emit radio waves itself. WiFi isn’t even the same technology as 5G so you really haven’t got a clue about what you’re worried about.
Actually 5G doesn’t work on the same frequency as WiFi – it works on the same frequency as microwave radiation.
Disclosure: Mind Commerce (https://mindcommerce.com/) is a market research company and we publish reports about 5G. For more info, see: https://mindcommerce.com/report-tag/5g/ We are not healthcare professionals, scientific researchers, or experts in electromagnetic energy.
Would like to start by stating that in addition to many, MANY more antennas (practically everywhere, but mostly within a metro area), there will also be a need for 5G Smart Antennas (more info here: https://mindcommerce.com/reports/5g-smart-antenna-market/).
There is no point in sugar-coating it. 5G is like a runaway train, so it’s going to happen.
Perhaps like many of you, we are not aware of any substantive, independent testing about the health effects it may cause. We believe there has been some testing regarding high energy millimeter wave (mmWave) radio frequency (RF) propagation, which doesn’t look good for living things. However, 5G New Radio (NR) uses low energy RF. The problem may be (if there is any problem) long term exposure to 5GNR.
Again, we are in the business of telling people about the merits of 5G, so don’t take this as hypocritical. We don’t know any more about the potential ill health effects than anyone else in lieu of testing. Sadly, it would likely have to be long-term testing to be conclusive.
One guideline to consider, even more so with 5G than ever before, would be to limit the exposure of directed energy towards you head and vital organs. In other words, use a headset, which is a good hands-free safety idea anyway. This is just using good judgement regarding any wireless technology.
As a side note, we see most of the applications and services being data-oriented with 5G. However, Voice over 5G (Vo5G) will be integrated with many next generation apps such as Virtual Reality (VR). The distinction is that the user interface (UI) will likely be wearable technology (e.g. a VR headset) and the 5GNR signal will be beamed to a smartphone (or some other device) and then relayed to the UI via some other wireless signal, most likely WiFi.
We have written extensively about how we see 5G being used (such as Vo5G: https://mindcommerce.com/reports/vo5g-market/), but like others in the information and communications technology industry, admittedly know very little about the potential health concerns of 5G

The “many studies” link provided leads to an article that states the opposite of what is being presented here. It states that the research so far that claims damage via RF has NOT been falsifiable and or replicated and therefore inadmissible scientifically. The only point in this pages favor is that the article recommend further study… a far cry from concrete scientific evidence for the claims made!
I am currently vacationing in Maui and I saw a 5G tower here. I recognized it because one just came in Rocklin California where I live.
Do you know if those EMF absorbing shields to stick on devices and routers are actually any good? Do they even work?
Hi Heidi! All you can really do is get a radiation counter (they start at around $120) and check for yourself: https://fave.co/2PaHW4N
these are for nuclear radiation, mobile phone work by radio waves you need a radio frequency meter that works up to 10 giga hertz..
Hi Heidi… yes some are. I tested (with my Acoustimeter RF meter) a cell phone shield that REALLY worked! It is sold by a company called vest tech… VestTech.com you put it on your phone. For wifi you can put faraday cages over them but that does not reduce it much… so the best is to use only ethernet on your computer (and not wifi) and of course in the software you need to disable the wifi… else it will continue to stream into your home. Also on your phone use only data not wifi though data still produces RF… just try NOT to use your phone (turn off at night… or as much as you can) and don’t have it near you and keep it far away from you at night where you sleep. The vest tech helps a lot but it is still receiving frequencies from the cell phone towers… but then again even if you don’t have a cell phone those frequencies still go into homes especially the closer they are to the home… even without a cell phone. Also I bought an RF shield bed canopy for over my bed that works really well. I tested it again with my Acoustimeter RF meter and found no reading at all underneath the canopy. Amazing! The canopy looks like a mosquito net (and it is see through like a thin gauze) but is different because it is made with copper and silver (and cotton) threads woven together. Air can still pass through but barely… so I place a quiet HoneyWell stand fan on the other side of the canopy so I get plenty of air to sleep at night. This RF shield canopy is made in the UK. Oh another thing… place your bed away from a wall that has higher voltage wiring in the walls like from a dryer or washing machine or an old refrigerator on the other side of the wall. EMF (electromagnetic frequencies) are emitted from those appliances to… their pretty bad. Different frequency but still bad for you. If you live under or close to a power line… move! Both the EMF and the RF are bad for you. IF you can buy both those meters the EMF meter and the RF meter… they will help you tweek your environment and make it safer. If you are not sure what meter does what… you can learn more online… about those 2 frequencies… so you know how to use them… or what to point them at. Basically to simplify things… the RF meter I use check ‘wireless’ devices like cell phones and wifi. The EMF meter I use to check ‘wired’ devices like appliances. house wiring and power lines. Hope this helps! 🙂
and through out your microwave oven, they work on the same frequency as WiFi and emit enough radiation to disrupt the WiFi signal
VESTTECH.Com works with cellphones. I tested it with my RF meter. Works well! Also RF shield canopy from the UK works really well blocking RF. I tested that too with my RF meter… it totally stopped all RF over my bed. There is also RF shield paint and RF shield curtains… but those are really expensive. I just invested in the canopy though expensive it was less than having my room painted by that company out of Switzerland I think. I forgot their name. The only way you know if something works is by testing it with an RF meter… the Acoustimeter is the best RF meter. I also bought an EMF meter for the wired stuff. I recommend that everyone buy both those meters… for the wired (EMF meter) and wireless (RF meter). I think the EMF meter is from a company called Meterk… I think… it works really well.
If you refuse 5g, will you be able to use your phone? Will 4g still function after they install 5g?
That’s a great question! They may well try to phase out anything that runs on anything but 5g. But to be honest, your phone’s function is the least of your worries – even if you have no phone at all, you will be radiated by the 5G masts that will be installed all over urban areas – i mean ALL OVER. The key is for ALL of us to be aware of these dangers and to stop 5G before it happens! Once it’s in place, every man, woman, child and even animal will be subject to its harmful effects.
Well being an RF engineer…. I can tell you that I would MUCH rather be near an antenna than far away from an antenna. You have an transmitter / antenna in your pocket (cell phone) and so does every one near you.
Automatic Gain Control on your cell phones controls how much your cell phone needs to be amplified to reach the tower. The tower itself does not have to push out much power because it is not meant to. It only needs to service those around it, so if you are not in a serviced area your phone pushes out max power and so does every other phone around you. 5G actually helps reduce the overall RF radiation by turning down the AGC on every cell phone around you. That is why your phone dies when you are out of range of a tower. We don’t need less towers that would make it worse we need more towers and that is what 5G will do. So many people talking about things they have no idea what they are talking about.
That’s simply not true Mathew – 5G radiation runs on a completely different frequency to wifi. https://www.radiationhealthrisks.com/5g-cell-towers-dangerous/
That’s an absolute lie. Either you are someone who’s working for a company rolling this out or you have money invested. The proof has been exposed by former military and industry whistleblowers. Get right with God before you tell another public lie like that one where a pregnant woman may believe you! Tell the truth!
I was replying to Mr Kimball. Professor Curtis Bennett of Canada Chief, International Science Advisory Board states, “Are there actually guidelines for how long you can put a baby in a microwave?” The only test for humans was a plastic head, hollowed out at the top, filled with water. Microwave energy does NOT melt plastic. I’m sending these articles to Trump every day. New Zealand has outlawed 5G, Sweden has outlawed it and a multitude of other countries who aren’t letting greed blind them to the deadly microwave tech. What will you do? Write to thethermoguy.com. He’s an expert on the effects of microwave damage to the human body.
Dead on! You may enjoy this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pheiufl6TCA&index=9&list=PLk42xLDFRQ6HwJhBv-rSHaWIgQirozdAM
Sweden outlawed 5g? Ericsson is one of the biggest Swedish companies, and they just started rolling it out: https://www.ericsson.com/en/5g/what-is-5g
This is terrible news… 🙁
“New Zealand has outlawed 5G, Sweden has outlawed it” that’s not true at all. NZ banned Huawei from their 5g networks due to security concerns and Swedish Ericsson has launched the largest European wide 5g network
The whole Hauwei security risk is a distraction from the REAL dangers of 5G. As for Sweden, perhaps Kathryn got confused with Switzerland, where 5G is banned (as well as in Israel, Brussels (where most of the European Union employees live) and Finland is now pushing for a full ban.
MATHEW KIMBRELL, Wow really? As an RF technician working in the field OSP for over 30 years, I’m shocked and disappointed you would even say that. Yet having dealt with any RF engineers over the years always working on their CAD program never leaving their desk. In my experience, most of them would still have some idea of the problems and the inherent risks with transmitting wireless signals in that spectrum. Using millimeter waves that broadcast at frequencies between 30 and 300 gigahertz and the sheer number of small cells required to build the network, come on dude!. The so-called internet of things is just going to be used as another system of control and is not worth the health risks to the public.
So much for tin foil hats. We’ll have to get tin foil suits. LOL.
If they force me to install in my home, I will build a steel box around the installation.
Right?? It’s also worth investing in an EMF monitor
First of all, one will likely not be able to “refuse 5G” if you use a commercial cellular device.
Modern devices use Digital Signal Processors (DSP), which is electronics that determine what frequencies are available, strongest frequencies, and choose a given frequency based on signal-strength, predetermined rules, etc. Therefore, perhaps one could disable the 5GNR (New Radio – see below what NR means), but not sure if device manufacturers would support being able to disable.
It’s important to recognize that portions of what many people refer to as 5G are actually the evolution of 4G through the Long Term Evolution (LTE) standard, which is funny because that would mean an evolution of Long Term Evolution, sort of like “you only YOLO once” redundancy.
Therefore, a portion of “5G”, the portion that is not 5G New Radio (5GNR) that uses millimeter wave (mmWave) radio frequencies (RF), will be around as such for quite a while.
This is because of many reasons, mostly to do with the incredible investment/network build-out required for 5GNR in terms of new antennas, many, MANY new antennas. Many of these antennas must be so-called “Smart Antennas” that beam the energy where needed most. These are used already with LTE, but they are even more necessary for 5GNR due to the very high frequency of mmWave RF propagation, which is prone to fading (losing signal over distance) and attenuation (losing signal due to being blocked by objects such as buildings, trees, etc.).
Therefore, 5GNR will not be so great for indoor penetration, urban canyons, real canyons, etc. Even some of the early 5G fixed wireless (like what Verizon is coming out with) will require relatively high-mounted antennas so as to reach above trees and other obstacles.
5G will be transmitted globally by sattellite
no it wont, why do you think they are going to need more towers, because the range is for less than even 4g.
Verizon told me that it would for a period of time but not indefinitely. Back to cord phone and answering machines.
Silent weapons for quiet wars.
Agree. But we WILL NOT be silent about these quiet wars! 😉
Ha! just ask the wives of the guys who repair the 4G towers just how destroyed their husbands are after working on even the 4G towers.. they get higher pay because it’s HAZARD PAY not because it requires more wizardry.
How many telecoms engineers and other employees of telecoms companies die early as a result of the dangers highlighted by you and many other sources?
Elspeth Nicol, the 5G network antenna’s have not been installed as yet, they are in the process of doing that now. They will only start emitting RFR after they are operational (switched on). Your theory of employees being effected from this as a result of them installing the antennas is ridiculous. Not only are they not switched on, any possible damage happens over a long term of being exposed to such antenna’s.. All those who happen to live near an antenna. Two painfully obvious reasons whyyour thinking is way off point.
ABC-7 News: LA Firefighters Halt Cell Towers on Fire Stations Due to Radiation Concerns
Firefighters Do Not Want Cell Towers On Their Schools Because of the “Hazardous” Radiation: Compare it to Cigarettes
Firefighters Living Next to Cell Towers Suffer Neurological Damage
“The fire station cell tower measured at 1/1000th to 2/1000th of the allowable FCC limit of non-ionizing radiation. That means the towers could be almost 1000 times more powerful than the level the firefighters were exposed to, and still be considered within FCC guidelines. And yet even at these levels of radiation, we found brain abnormalities and measurable neurological deficits.”
“Once cell towers were activated on or adjacent to their fire stations, they could no longer function without severe headache, inability to sleep, and foggy thinking. These are not symptoms we wish to see in our First Responders.”
Actually Frank — Elspeth Nicols comment was a question and a very good one to — Ok so you being a ‘Scientific Researcher of course are aware that RFR has not been ‘switched on’ but can I correct you — it is not going to be a case of ‘those who live near an antenna’ because everyone will live near one – it will not be an antenna as for 4G but will require much smaller boxes placed on every lamp post, in every smart meter in every house and that ‘is going to be very ‘painful’ for one obvious reason!! — and I am Not a Scientific Researcher!!
Frank what are you inferring??
none, i am now 72 and worked with microwave systems in telecommunications for over 15 years. neither myself or any of my co works have heath problems due microwave transmission.
Already man kind has found so many ways to harm ourselves , the planet and our co-habitants. 5G is our next and probably last battle. I am sure that having read any of the many disturbing reports and research studies into this will agree this must be stopped !
Stopped? Stop kidding yourself 5G has been fully developed and it’s probably going to be released in late 2018 in the US
Humanity has been forced, by the fork tongued demons, to adopt their evil, in order to survive.
Don’t keep blaming ‘Man’. Man lives with, and loves, nature and humanity. But one species….well….look at what they’ve done to wherever they stole.
The Jewish man is to blame.
Your direct truth is understood. And if satellites, drones already have “dustified” home and relocated to a dense 5G area, without income stability, climate with hail and flood taking out electric while running through body, Drones replace man with computers to “correct” and my brain/body induced with inner A.I. : teaching Electronic Radiation Frequency technology (without devices of hard technology and direct sensor nodes inside altering life completely) , we have no option but to accept that 5G exist and is not going away before humans adapt. Just to un-listenable yo most, yes?
“Our next last battle”: a good name for a article, book or even a doc about 5G technology.
Ha! So true! 😉
These are matters of grave concern. Very alarming indeed! The thing is we humans are never satisfied with anything, it’ll never be enough and that is what ‘s taken us so far. Humans the most miserable creatures. And money is the root to all evil.
Next step,… paranoia and intimacy violation.
Not good for privacy, this technology.
Not good for health, frequency are dangerous for all molecules/cell structures/ proteins /DNA,… for all living creatures. I know, … low intensity, but radiations are accumulated in time (installing cancer and mutations)
Stupid people rules.
