Experts continue to warn of the dangers of 5G, but the dangers of electromagnetic radiation (EMF) exposure go far beyond 5G. Action Alert!
As our friends at ANH-International point out, a new consensus statement has been released to reflect the concerns of medical and scientific experts and practitioners around the world on the acute and chronic health effects from EMF. In the statement, more than 3,500 medical doctors call for a moratorium on 5G, wireless smart meters, and other new sources of EMF emissions. This echoes what ANH and others have been saying for some time now. But the truth is that EMF emissions that could be affecting human health are ubiquitous in our environment, most likely including our homes and offices.
We’ve written a number of articles over the years detailing the dangers from 5G, the next generation of wireless technology. The concerns are tied to the fact that the deployment of 5G networks necessitate the placement of many “small cell” towers to create a network, since 5G utilizes millimeter wavelengths that are more easily blocked by physical objects like trees and buildings. This will increase our exposure to the EMF emitted from these “small cells,” which has experts around the world concerned about possible human health effects.
Others are sounding the alarm about another source of exposure to EMF: “dirty” electricity, or electrical pollution. Dirty electricity is a form of EMF that is generated by electronic devices that, when they operate, convert AC power to DC, creating high-frequency voltage spikes that flow back into the power grid, piggy-back on existing electrical wiring, and radiate into the environment. Sources of dirty electricity include: smart meters, LED lights, light dimmer switches, wireless technology, computers, solar panels, video game consoles, phone chargers, and even kitchen appliances.
The type of EMF exposure caused by dirty electricity is at a lower frequency on the electromagnetic spectrum than that from 5G, which relies on millimeter waves (this site has a visual of where 5G is on the spectrum compared to other sources of EMF). So while dirty electricity may not present the same health concerns as 5G networks, they are still a source of EMF exposure that may cause problems for some people, particularly those who are sensitive to EMF.
Research conducted on schools situated near cell towers have shown the potential health effects of dirty electricity. A study in three Minnesota schools found that reducing dirty electricity by 90 percent improved teacher health (reduced headaches, general weakness, asthma, depression, anxiety, and skin irritation) and student behavior. A study on a school in La Quinta, California demonstrated similar results. In both studies the results were achieved by installing filters that short out high frequencies and reduce transients on electrical wiring.
There are some measures that can be taken to protect your home from dirty electricity. As mentioned above, special filters can be bought to reduce dirty electricity (such as this one). But the best way to eliminate or reduce dirty electricity is to eliminate the sources, or at the very least to unplug them when they are not in use.
We can also call on elected officials to halt 5G expansion, which will otherwise dramatically increase our exposure to EMF, until it is proven safe for human and environmental health.
Action Alert! Write to Congress and tell them to halt 5G until it is proven safe. Please send your message immediately. By sending this message, you will also be supporting our petition to ungag doctors so that they can share with patients the benefits of supplements and natural treatments for COVID.
