5G is Coming: What You Should Know
Filed under: EMF Energy
Whether we approve or not, 5G telecommunications companies forge ahead with expansion of 5G coverage. Consumers continue to demand ever-increasing cellular technology, and current frequency bandwidths are saturated due to use… Hence, the installation of 5G cell stations and wireless antennas, creating a dense network throughout towns and cities.
But of course, we have our concerns. The World Health Organization has previously classified wireless radiation as a possible Class 2B carcinogen, and the National Toxicology Program has concluded that these electromagnetic fields (EMFs) can be a causative factor in cancer cases. Thousands of scientific studies have linked wireless radiation to a range of biological effects, such as changes in DNA, oxidative damage, disruption of cell metabolism, increased permeability of the blood brain barrier, and more.
So, what type of health problems concern us, specifically, with regard to increasing EMFs?
Effects on the skin. Recent studies have indicated that our sweat ducts become more conductive when exposed to wireless radiation, and that over 90 percent of 60GHz waves are absorbed through the skin.
Effects on eyes. One 1994 linked microwave radiation to cataracts in rats, while others have demonstrated links to damaged lens epithelial cells.
Effects on immune system. A 2002 demonstrated lower immunity in rats who were exposed to microwave radiation.
Effects on the heart. Certain frequencies have been scientifically linked to heart arrhythmias and heart rate variability (an indicator of stress).
Changes to cell growth. One 2016 sought to mimic the environment created by 5G networks, and found that cell growth rates of bacteria were depressed. Other properties and activities of the cells were also altered.
Changes in bacterial resistance. The above study also pointed to increasing bacterial resistance to antibiotics, after exposure to radiation.
The above effects are just a few of the scientific community’s concerns about 5G radiation, as relating to the human body and our health. Other concerns include absorption by plants, possibly tainting our food supply, and other potentially negative effects on our atmosphere and ecosystem.
