Normally we don’t write posts about things we are advocating for or against, but this is important for you to be aware of. Utilities are putting up 5G radiofrequency units on poles throughout the world and even President Trump wants to see it rolled out all over the USA. While you may think this will help your connectivity, it has been shown not to be that beneficial over 4G and there are numerous safer alternatives to supply service in remote areas. We don’t need an ugly group of hundred-pound units on the top of every so many poles on our street. Plus the radio-frequencies have proven to have a negative effect on not only our health but the health of nearby trees, birds and bees.
Currently, 5G technology is effective only over short distances and doesn’t penetrate through solids—requiring numerous antennae with unobstructed paths between transmitters and receivers. Wireless antennas emit microwaves – non-ionizing radiofrequency radiation – and essentially function as cell towers. Each installation can have over a thousand antennas that are transmitting simultaneously. They increase electromagnetic radiation near homes. Property values drop after a cell tower is built near homes and this ugly units will do nothing for curb appeal. Health effects to people and animals include:
- Increased Wireless Exposure– Since this new standard will require extensive towers, Users will be subjected to more cell tower radiation as it will be nearly impossible to escape wireless radiation as more wireless-enabled devices will appear on the market.
- Increased Number of Electromagnetic-Sensitivity (ES) Cases – ES is the condition in which people develop intolerances to radiation from wireless technology devices such as cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi, smart meters and antennas. Symptoms range from tingling and headaches to sleep disturbances, nausea and memory problems. With the increased radiation associated with 5G, we can expect to see a drastic uptick in the number ES cases. For more information on EHS go to www.safehelpsyou.org
- Negative Environmental Impacts– Wildlife is expected to be affected by the introduction of widespread 5G. It is theorized that the navigation of birds and insects (especially bees) will be disrupted and more research is required to explore the exact repercussions of Wi-Fi radiation on our environmental surrounding. According to a study by Wageningen University in the Netherlands, radio frequency signals could very well be responsible for the diseased trees, which exhibited bark tears, bleeding and leaves prematurely dying. Trees with closest proximity to Wi-Fi networks suffered from telltale indicators of radiation sickness, including a “lead-like shine” on their leaves, which is caused by the deterioration of outer-cell layers — leading to premature death of the foliage.

We believe the responsible course of action is to defer 5G deployment until the full biological and environmental effects are understood. To protect our health, more research must be undertaken. Additionally, there should always be an option to opt-out from 5G technology from devices like appliances and cars—ensuring the safety of those with electromagnetic-sensitivities, the elderly and the young. – the AntiAgingLady
.During the recent years over 240 scientists from more than 40 countries have expressed their “serious concerns” , via EMF Scientists Appeal, regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices – already before the additional 5G roll-out. The over 240 scientists refer to the fact that ”numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines”. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plants and animals.As of March 31 2019, 229 scientists and medical doctors have signed the appeal. The 5G Appeal is still open for endorsement for scientists (PhD, professor) or medical doctors (MD. Please contact professor em. Rainer Nyberg or ass. professor Lennart Hardell. (Contact.)
