5G is a word used to describe the next-generation of mobile networks beyond the 2G, 3G and 4G technologies currently being used for cellular communication. There is no research showing the safety of 5G or the safety from the combined exposure of 5G and already existing radiation waves from 2G, 3G, WiFi, 4G etc. “We recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation, 5G, for telecommunication until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry...RF-EMF has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment.” — 2017 5G Scientific Appeal (signed by more than 200 scientists and doctors from 35 countries)
5 THINGS YOU MUST KNOW ABOUT 5G 1. 5G will be an extra layer added to 2G, 3G, 4G - not replacing. Technologies will be combined with current frequencies with an added higher frequency - microwaves/ millimeter wave radiation - to transmit data at super fast speeds. These types of waves have been used by the US Department of Defense in crowd control situations. 2. 5G cell antennas will be clustered and lower to the ground in populated areas such as neighborhoods, schools and public places on light poles, trash cans, bus stops and buildings. The FCC estimates millions of transmitters will be built directly in front of homes. Everywhere, 24/7. 3. Communities have lost their rights. New legislation has signed away public notice and/or opposition due to health concerns even though the FDA and FCC have not conducted any studies to ensure the safety of 5G and human health. 4. Scientists worldwide are calling for a halt to 5G roll-out. Scientific studies show many adverse health effects and health hazards from radio frequency/microwave radiation. Landmark US National Toxicology Program studies found male rats exposed to cell phone radiation for two years developed brain cancer and DNA damage. Cell phone radiation is classified as a possible human carcinogen but many experts find the evidence undeniable according to studies. 5. Some countries, especially those who carry financial responsibility of the citizens medical system, have halted or are applying precaution regarding 5G considering it to be a potential hazard for human health. The list of cites continues to grow but some include Vaud-Switzerland, Brussels-Belgium, Geneva-Switzerland, Florence-Italy, Finland, Russian Ministry of Defense, Parliament of Netherlands. U.S. cities include Portland-OR, Mill Valley-CA, Bay Area City-CA.
