Frightening Frequencies: The Dangers of 5G & What You Can Do About Them
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 noticable 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 things 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. 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
Furthermore, 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?

Take action
In the meantime, we as individuals must do everything we can to protect ourselves. Here’s what you can do:
Understand EMFs and their behaviours
Use EMF metres to measure, mark and avoid hotspots
Whenever possible, limit your exposure: use a headset or speaker mode while talking on a cellphone.
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.
Carry shungite crystals to protect from radiation
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. Get active with them here.
Do as the Hawaiians have done and threaten smart meter and 5G tech installers with liability. You can learn how to do that here.
Spread the word! Share this article with everyone you know
Even if the policy drivers and governments aren’t doing their due diligence, at least we can say we’re doing ours.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Dear You and Yours and Which. I have sent you stuff before to which you did not respond,  presumably because of government censorship.
So,   I challenge you to expose the true dangers of the serious health risks of the proposed use of 5G and the dangers of smart meters.
The government propaganda in promoting the smart meter is huge and so will be promotion of 5G because the corporate giants with unlimited money want 5G. So now is your chance to prove that you also are not controlled. As supposed advocates of consumer protection, what you do with these facts will show to people like me if you are controlled or true consumer protectionists.

I tried to expose this ten years ago and more. We knew about exposure to shortwave radiation in the 1970s when I was in the Royal Signals.

In the good old days of the1960s, we used the 20Ghz UHF (ultra high frequency) band for communications between aircraft and ground stations. All the ground antenna installations were surrounded by high steel and barbed wire fencing, large boards warned of the possibility of radiation burns. UHF is microwave radiation, line of sight. We knew the dangers then, so why is it OK now to use even more dangerous frequencies? The government is encouraging people to have smart meters fitted! How do they work? Every smart meter transmits information over similar frequencies used for mobile phones. Not sure of the range of these things, but I may have heard 30 metres. The excuse used to dispel worries about smartmeters is that the power is minute. Think about that for a moment, on housing estates where houses are close together you might get 4, 6, 8 or 10 smartmeters overlapping, and how about blocks of flats? Radiation from several smartmeters all at once plus you mobile phones, computers, tablets and all these new gizmos to link every thing in house wirelessly, and your output multiplied umpteen times by others, oh, and cars now have multiple devices all broadcasting signals, Satnavs, in car phones and entertainment all buzzing around the country. Driverless car in greater numbers will add to the microwave smog, a health hazard worse than asbestos.
