(NaturalHealth365) A new 5th generation wireless telecommunication system has been approved by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC), and its purpose is to help bring about the “Internet of Things” – a sort of technological wonderland featuring cars that drive themselves; refrigerators that re-order their own contents; and lightning-quick movie downloads.
However, this wireless utopia has an underreported fatal flaw. According to applied physicist Ronald M. Powell, PhD, the new network would “irradiate everyone.” Discover the truth about the pending bombardment of wireless radiation – and how it will affect human health. (not to mention all other living organisms.)
Huge 5G wireless infrastructure will generate a massive increase in microwave radiation
Instituting the ‘Internet of Things’ will involve the development of “Smart Cities” – manifested by an immense wireless sensor network of cell antennas mounted on utility poles, homes and businesses. Experts say that the network will require each of the major wireless carriers to install up to a million new base stations.
As a result, we know that the levels of microwave radiation will soar.
There is already serious concern among natural health experts and safety advocates about the adverse effects of the existing wireless network. Adding to the unease is the fact that the 5G network uses frequencies – from 24 to 100 GHz and higher – that have never been tested or even utilized before.
Understandably, natural health experts protest there has been insufficient study of the potential impact on human health. Do you think the FCC share their concerns? The short answer is: No.
In fact, the FCC is rushing to embrace the new technology, with former FCC chairman Tom Wheeler calling its adoption a “national priority.”
Electro-sensitivity already affects millions
The syndrome of electro-sensitivity to microwaves was first identified in 1971 by Russian researchers, who dubbed it “microwave sickness.” Now known as electro-sensitivity, the disorder is officially recognized by the World Health Organization, which reports that 3.5 to 5 percent of all people suffer electro-sensitivity when close to wireless or cell phone transmitters.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration acknowledges the existence of electro-sensitivity, with a 1981 report listing a constellation of linked symptoms that include headaches, eyestrain, fatigue, dizziness, nervous tension, mental depression, memory impairment, pulling sensations in the scalp and hair, muscle pain, heart palpitations, breathing difficulties and increased perspiration of extremities.
Many people first become aware of their electro-sensitivity after the installation of a “smart” meter or Wi-Fi hotspot in or near their home. In some instances, the condition is so severe that sufferers liken it to “torture, every minute of the day” and report that it has caused loss of health, employment and homes.
Radiofrequency microwave radiation is now classified as a 2B carcinogen
Scientific literature contains ample evidence of non-thermal cellular damage from wireless radiation, and wireless critics point to a number of demonstrably adverse effects – including oxidative damage, DNA and nerve cell damage, reduction of melatonin and mitochondrial disruption.
Now, many scientists and medical health professionals are speaking out.
Scientists for Wired Technology – a group dedicated to changing laws in order to protect all living creatures from radiation – maintains that radiofrequency microwave radiation is a “man-made, toxic agent that causes biological harm.”
In 2011, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified radiofrequency as a 2B carcinogen, meaning it is “possibly carcinogenic” to humans. This is the same category in which the IARC places lead and DDT.
In 2016, the National Institutes of Health’s National Toxicology Program released its “NTP Toxicology and Carcinogenicity Cell Phone Radiation Study,” a $25 million research project that spanned ten years.
The report demonstrated conclusively that there was a harmful effect from cell phone radiation – and that radiofrequency radiation caused a statistically significant increase in two different types of brain tumors in rats. The two forms of tumors were the same types that were shown to increase in human studies examining cell phone use.
And, cancer is not the only threat from microwave radiation. Other research has demonstrated adverse effects on the endocrine, immune, reproductive, cardiac and nervous systems.
“Millimeter waves” – which affect all living creatures – constitute the newest threat
The pending 5G network will use high frequency “millimeter waves.” Researchers are finding that millimeter waves can penetrate the skin surface and affect nerve signaling – and have profound effects on all biological systems, including cells, bacteria, yeast, animals and humans.
Animal studies have shown that millimeter waves can cause arrhythmias, heart rate variability and disturbances of DNA-protein interactions.
And, over 1,000 different studies with 14 different antibiotics show that exposure to millimeter waves can affects the sensitivity of the S. aureus bacterium to antibiotics. In light of the growing threat of antibiotic resistance, this is a truly alarming finding
Finally, extremely high-frequency millimeter waves decreased the capacity of the immune system by suppressing the infection-fighting activity of neutrophils.
Geneticist Dr. Mae-Wan Ho – who maintains that pollution from wireless technologies is a major health issue – once likened the effects of ever-present radiation to being immersed in “a sea of microwaves.”
With the advent of 5G technology, this ‘sea’ is threatening to engulf all of us.
