5G Technology is Considered a Global Health Risk by Some Scientists

Over 180 scientists and doctors in almost 40 countries are warning the world about 5G health risks. "Resolution 1815 of the Council of Europe" spells it out quite concisely:

"We, the undersigned scientists, recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation, 5G, until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry. 5G will substantially increase exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields... and has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment."

With download speeds up to 20 to 30 times faster than 4G, 5G promises a new world, including becoming the foundation for self-driving cars while also causing a long list of potential health risks. "5G Cancer" is actually a thing. The cities of Brussels and Geneva have even blocked trials and banned upgrades to 5G out of this concern.

The difference between 4G and 5G in terms of gigahertz, the unit of alternating current or electromagnetic waves that affect the transmission speeds of devices, is significant. 5G technology promises radio millimeter bands in the 30 to 300 GHz range, while 4G tops out at around 6GHz. When applied to video latency, this translates to speeds up to 60 to 120 times faster.

Before 2G, 3G, and 4G, radio frequencies were benign. Sadly, once the concept of wireless "G" technology was initiated, we began exposing the global public to frequencies akin to microwaves at 1 billion cycles per second.

In fact, 5G could essentially be cancerous. Many scientists understand that the electromagnetic radiation leaking through the doors of our microwave ovens are carcinogenic, and therefore, can cause cancer. Most of these scientists also believe that these waves are mutagenic, meaning they change the DNA structure of living beings. The launch of 5G will be similar to turning on your microwave, opening its door, and leaving it on for the rest of your life. There's good reason why hundreds of scientists are taking action against the wireless industry.

For the past ten years, 5G technology has been in development. Originally planned as a layer atop 3G and 4G, 5G is fast becoming a world of its own. Every cell tower in your neighborhood emits radio frequency radiation. By 2021, every city will have 5G towers and cell stations. These devices will be on the top or side of millions of buildings throughout the world. The wireless industry is not just building an infrastructure that provides faster downloads; it's building a global microwave oven.
