And the Chinese can use the new technology for espionage
Although experts and scientists warn of the health consequences of electromagnetic waves from the cellular network, the 5G network project is being pushed ahead. That means: more antennas and more high-frequency radiation. There is also a warning of espionage by China.
Telecoms have started converting transmission masts to make them suitable for 5G. But what are the dangers?
5G is an abbreviation that means “fifth generation”. It is a new cellular standard using frequencies of 6GHz. This should enable data rates of up to 10 Gbit / s. This means: even faster data transmission for all mobile devices connected to the network. 5G is said to be up to a thousand times faster than 4G. The Swedish telecommunications company Ericsson expects that by 2024 over 40 percent of the world’s population will use 5G technology.
Risk of cancer and brain damage from 5G
In order to make these frequencies usable across the board, the cellular network must be expanded more closely. That means: more radio antennas, and more electromagnetic waves. Health hazards for humans cannot be ruled out because there have not yet been sufficient studies. But all over the world there are researchers and doctors who warn of damage to health.
Around 250 scientists from different countries had already signed a petition to the United Nations (UN) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The experts warn that “cell phones and cordless telephones […] and radio antennas” can increase the risk of cancer due to the electromagnetic field (EMF) generated by the radio waves.
According to the scientists’ assessment: “The effects include an increased risk of cancer, cellular stress, an increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damage, structural and functional changes in the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders and negative effects on general well-being of the human.“
There are still no studies on the effects of the 5G network. However, studies with 2G, 3G and 4G networks have already shown that electromagnetic fields can leave clear traces in the human body. These include psycho-stress, sperm and testicular damage, neuropsychiatric effects, changes in electrical activity in the brain, and cellular DNA damage.
If such effects can already be determined with 2G to 4G networks, how should it be with the 5G network, which is again significantly stronger?
It is to be expected that 5G will lead to a massive increase in forced exposure to radio radiation.
The effects are not only limited to humans, but also to animals and plants. In short: In urban areas, the entire ecosystem could be invisibly influenced. The cities can keep their poison, but let us at least try to keep it out of rural areas – and this is where the real resistance to 5G is strongest.
