“Flying Blind” with 5G

January 2, 2020
Category: 5G

Scientists are speaking out about the dangers of 5G, but government agencies are showing no signs of listening. Action Alert!

Over the past months, we’ve been documenting the issues surrounding the launch of 5G networks. As we edge closer and closer to a wider rollout of this technology, more information is coming to light demonstrating the negative impact on human health that could result, not to mention the damage to wildlife and the environment. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is paving the way for this rollout and is apparently too beholden to the telecoms industry to care that we’re being used as guinea pigs in this experiment.

The latest outrage in this story is the recent announcement from the FCC that they will reaffirm the radio frequency radiation exposure limits that were adopted in the 1990s, based on research from the 1980s. These were derived from behavioral changes in rats exposed to microwave radiation and were established to protect humans from short-term heating risks from radiation exposure. Yet the peer-reviewed research since then has found harmful health effects from much lower radiation exposure.

Further, the FCC exposure limits only limit the intensity, or the frequency, of the carrier waves, but ignore other aspects. An expert in Scientific American writes, “Along with the patterning and duration of exposures, certain characteristics of the signal (e.g., pulsing, polarization) increase the biologic and health impacts of the exposure. New exposure limits are needed which account for these differential effects.”

Echoing these concerns, a group of hundreds of scientists from around the world recently sent a letter to the United Nations and the World Health Organization warning of “serious concerns regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices.” The scientists explain that EMF “affects living organisms at levels well below most international guidelines,” causing increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in free radicals, genetic damage, changes to the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, and neurological disorders.

Others have pointed to 10,000 peer-reviewed studies demonstrating an array of negative health effects from EMF exposure, including: altered metabolism, cancer, cardiovascular disease, DNA damage, impaired sperm function, cognitive impairment, neurological damage, and many more.

Aside from turning a blind eye to the numerous health implications of launching 5G on a wide scale, recall, too, that the FCC is undermining local democracy so towns and cities have less of a say over how the technology gets installed. This is what happens when the person in charge of the FCC, Ajit Pai, is an ex-telecoms executive.

It is a scandal that the government is allowing the telecoms industry to use us as guinea pigs in this 5G experiment. The most knowledgeable minds in the world are warning us of the dangers, but the government isn’t giving us any signs that they have a clue.

Action Alert! Write to Congress and tell them to halt 5G until it is proven safe. Please send your message immediately.

    Please do not expose our fragile environment and our bodies to radiation that has not been tested enough.

  3. JEAN PUBLIEE says:

    THERE ARE SERIOUS CONCERNS ABOUT HUMAN HEALTH DAMAGE FRM 5G. WE SHOUDL WAIT AND SEE HOW IT AFFECTS THE CHINESE PUBLIC WHERE IT IS USED MASSIVELY. LET THEM DIE FIRST IF IT KILLS.

  4. Ted Yuhl says:

    Please do not release 5g without further study.

  5. Wendy King says:

    There is no proof that 5G technologies are safe for humans. It is unacceptable to place, often with no public hearings or opportunities for comments and/or protest, 5G technologies on either public or private land. That placement of 5G technologies on public land, or on private property (which amounts to a taking of private property) should be stopped, until this technology has been fully vetted by third-party investigators, and a report of their findings released to the public.

  6. Dianne Vogt says:

    5G is a danger to humanity. Please outlaw it’s use.

  7. Mary Britt says:

    I believe that science and studies show that 5G is not in the best interest of Humans. I have seen too many studies of problems of lower G in containment that leaves me to believe that we are stressing ourselves needlessly. There are ways to make these waves beneficial instead of detrimental. Find the ways that this can be done before too many people are hurt needlessly.

  8. Jessica Rollins says:

    Halt 5G until it is proven safe.

  9. maria pflug says:

    My experiences with EMW in the service US Army in Viet Nam are currently biased against the use of 5G as it is harmful to humans and animals. It causes many illnesses both mental and physical. Have we done any research on the current onslaught of mental illnesses that cause Autism and Mental madness that result in random shootings and the rise of anti-social actions? What is responsible for the current increase in Parkinson’s Disease?

  10. George Bentley says:

    radio wave radiation has been proven to have negative health consequences. this new wavelength will require transmitters everywhere, each of which will emit considerable power. The negative consequences on this have been studied and affirmed. This must be brought to a halt until an impartial evaluation– and by that criterion one that is not funded by those who would profit– can give a true assessment of the risks.

  11. Why play Russian Roulette with the Entire population of the world ? Why not inviestigate first and then release this technology into the world ?
    Isn’t that the way its supposed to be ? Isn’t that why the FCC was created?

  12. Ann Pane says:

    I do not understand how all the risks associated with 5g can just be ignored by all those in charge, then again, with them it is all about the money. Follow the money.

  13. Nikolajs Belikoff-Strads says:

    Research demonstrates that exposure to 3g and 4g radiation causes tumors in a rat model. Why aren’t there any human trials to follow this up? Implementing 5g without adequate safety studies in a human population is a breach of consent.

  14. Hei says:

    The problems are:
    Governments love to improve their budgets and election coffers with telecom cash.
    Most politicians are ignorant about this (as well as many other) problem(s).
    Some ‘rulers’ may want to employ 5G for their own purpose: For mass control, as weapon – nothing more convenient than densely positioned weapons disguised as civilian / private sector technology. Should people ever rise up against this or other governments, they just need to turn up the heat and people will either run or else.

    Since the proud City of San Diego (which prides itself to become the 1st large ‘smart’ city) rolled out its initial wave of 5G antennas incl. surveillance cameras in our (and most other, but not the wealthier) neighborhood(s), I have experienced symptoms of EMF sensitivity and can tell you that this is extremely compromising. I also have seen bees die in numbers, ways, and places as I haven’t observed before (I know how to observe, and am also a trained biologist). I am heart broken to imagine how smaller life forms incl. plants (and our microbiomes!) are being impacted.

    A 24/7 exposure will also ruin many people’s lives.

    As a side note: my EMF sensitivity has changed my behavior: I can’t visit neighborhood cafes or restaurants any more (eventually they all may have to close when more people become symptomatic) or walk our dogs in the neighborhood where we previously connected with other people. It definitely impacts our family life and our marriage and we actually will need to move as soon as we can.

    Although I now know that I am clearly EMF sensitive, this radiation (also 3G, 4G) affect every single organism. Even though most people don’t feel it (yet) it ‘curls their blood’ just as it seems to do with mine. It has also impacted my eye sight so that I now need reading glasses (this happened within weeks!). Check for videos on ‘live blood microscopy, smart meter, or cell phone’).

    In my view this, together with the climate engineering assaults (learn about this at the site GeoengineeringWatch) will quite rapidly finish off our biosphere. From ozone layer to soil fertility. Everything and everybody is/will be negatively impacted, even though most will remain ignorant about the causes of their health deterioration.

  15. Karl Hamann says:

    5G is dangerous to human health, and environmentally unsafe! DO not continue the rollout!

  16. Halt 5G implementation! We want this to be proven safe first. We are not guinea pigs. Please don’t put money before our health, the health of wildlife and the environment.

  17. M. Ross Baldwin says:

    ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIO FREQUENCY EXPOSURE DOES REPRESENT AN IDENTIFIED THREAT TO MOST ANIMAL ORGANIZIMS.
    REGULATORY STEPS SHOULD BE TAKEN NOW TO SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE ENVIRONMENTAL AND SPECIFICALLY AT 5G USER EXPOSURE LEVELS. FOR ECONOMIC AND AND HEALTH REASONS THIS IS BETTER DONE NOW BEFORE WIDE AREA INTRODUCTION OF SERVICES.

  18. I beg all government officials who have the power to VOTE to STOP the advancement of 5G towers/technology due to the SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN,life-threatening side effects of the EMF’s they emit.

  19. Roberta Waddell says:

    What exactly is EMF? Nowhere do you define it.

  20. David Miller says:

    Please do some research on this to update the studies completed in the 80’s. 5G sounds great, unless it harms people, wildlife and vegetation.

  21. Laura DePonte says:

    Please declare a moratorium on the roll out of 5G technology, smart meters and any technology “upgrades” that will expose us to unprecedented high levels of EMF, RF, etc., until we have extensive independent studies that expose any negative health effects to human adults, children and babies, as well as to wildlife, our environment, and all our sensitive ecosystems.
    We cannot afford to walk into this technology blindly just because it will bring in trillions in profit for the telcom industry and anyone else who stands to profit from it.
    The conflict of interest factor MUST be taken into consideration as well: Ajit Pai, head of the FCC, is an ex telcoms executive. It also seems that many of our elected officials are in the pocket of same (telcom industry), and have no idea about, nor any interest in, the potential harmful effects of the massive exposure that all of life on Earth will be subjected to when and if this technology and its future permutations are rolled out all over our planet, from land and from sky…
    Our children, ourselves, our world should NOT be used as an experimental ground for 5G. Our bodies, our tissues, our cells will not be able to acclimate to this sort of exposure. More, in this case, is NOT better. A moratorium is in order.

  22. Thomas D Sherman says:

    if untested don’t do it.

  23. Susan Deemer says:

    There is a lot of evidence for negative health effects being caused by EMF exposure. Please halt 5G technology until it is proven safe.

  24. Steve Naidamast says:

    “It is a scandal that the government is allowing the telecoms industry to use us as guinea pigs in this 5G experiment.”

    Oh I wouldn’t worry about this. The rats that are trying to fry this Earth with microwave radiation will be fired along with us…

  25. Robert stern says:

    Please put a stop to 5G roll out until it is proven to be safe. Health concerns should take precedence over business interests.

  26. Teresa Dietze says:

    As a health care practitioner I am beginning to see more and more clients who have been compromised by EMF exposure. Please research carefully and objectively before allowing yet another thing that will damage public health.

  27. Jack Campbell says:

    Depopulation

  28. James Johnson says:

    EMF is unregulated and currently ubiquitous. Very difficult to protect oneself and a myriad of health problems long term that are not acknowledged. Just another in an array of toxins that humans must deal with. And we get no help from our govt agencies that are suppose to provide for the common good, not protect the monied interests. C’mon

  29. Bob Hatcher says:

    The upper ranges of 5G is like having a LASER beam into our ears because with frequencies with that short of a wavelength it is a beam of focused energy. I am aware of that as I worked in a enclosed area working with Microwave from 14 to 90 Ghz. This is not a beam high overhead from transmission tower to transmission tower. It is pointing to your cell phone which you then put against your head and chat away. Follow the money and cut it off at the knees. Hospitals need to get ready for unusual health issues caused by this focused energy.

  30. Lawrence Plagman says:

    This will affect you and your children, unless, you think you are immune? Which you are not.

  31. Dan Quixoté says:

    As an RF (radiofrequency) guy since ’83, with decades in the cellular industry, who was a major player in tech stds from USB and Bluetooth and wireless charging on forward, I wish I could do & help more. I’ve done work for top names in the cellular industry. My employers have paid for studies and lobbying to dupe the government and the public into thinking RF above 400MHz isn’t hurting them, despite what we and our colleagues have been alerting them to for so many years. DM me if you think I could help – I’ve kept correspondence records for decades, and have helped local entities keep tower incursions out.
