What is 5G?

5th generation wireless technology is a term used to describe the next level of telecommunication hardware for the purpose of increasing the transmission speed of data across cellphones, computers, and other “internet of things” devices (e.g., robots, automated cars, “smart televisions”, gaming consoles)1. The telecom industry has invested tremendous resources into the ever expanding range of intensified EMF, one reason being that if there are 5G networks then people will “need 5G smart-phones”. As recent polls have shown, nearly 95% of the adult American population owns a cellphone, which in itself demonstrates a very large potential market.2

The key difference between 5G technology and previous telecommunication frequencies (3G, 4G, 4G LTE) is that unlike prior networks, 5G will work off of the transmission of millimeter waves (MMWs) instead of currently used microwaves. 5G frequencies are considered “extremely high frequencies” and are in the frequency range of 30 to 300 gigahertz (GHz). In other words, MMWs are longer than infrared waves or x-rays, but are shorter and more intense than microwaves or radio waves3. To put this in perspective, current 4G networks use frequencies of 6 GHz.4 The supposed purpose of 5G, as stated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the telecommunications industry (i.e., Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, etc.) is that 5G will facilitate the extremely fast transfer of data from one device to another. Another reason is that current microwave networks are already used up, and therefore MMWs are a wavelength that is “unused”.

However, since MMWs do not travel far, do not travel through buildings well, or use the atmosphere as a means to travel long distances like radio waves, the industry plans on investing over $56 billion dollars to install 5G antennas on nearly every single city block5. Some sources say the industry plans on installing up to 800,000 new towers – or “smart cells” as they are called - across the United States.6

Interestingly enough, MMWs have so far have only been used in weapons systems for the military. In the last ten to twenty years, contractors for the Pentagon have published data regarding weapons that involve the use of MMWs in the range of 95 GHz that can cause a person’s skin to feel a burning sensation, as if “they’ve stepped in front of a blazing oven, but without killing them”. These non-lethal weapons have been dubbed “heat rays”.7

The primary concern with the roll out of 5G networks is that the frequencies will literally saturate residential and workplace areas in MMWs. The consistent and chronic saturation of wireless radiation, even at levels low as that used in cellphones, have been linked to heart problems and increased risks of cancer. Furthermore, the health risks regarding 5G networks have not been properly addressed by the FCC, as the FCC recently allowed telecom companies the use of wavelength bands between 28 to 47 GHz, as well as some bands above 95 GHz, without even considering the industry to submit proper safety studies.8

The three main countries currently involved in the roll out of 5G networks are South Korea, China, and the United States.9

Human Health Concerns

In May 2011, the World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields between the range of 30 Khz (kilo hertz) and 300 GHz as “possibly carcinogenic to humans” (Group 2B). Other substances that are classified in this same group include lead, the herbicide 2,4-D, and ethylbenzene. The IARC supports their decision from multiple studies investigating the connection between wireless cellphone use and the incident rate of aggressive brain cancer.1

As noted by the Wyoming based organization Environmental Health Trust led by Dr. Devra Davis, PhD.,

Published peer reviewed science already indicates that the current wireless technologies of 2G, 3G and 4G – in use today with our cell phones, computers and wearable tech – creates radiofrequency exposures which poses a serious health risk to humans, animals and the environment. Scientists are cautioning that before rolling out 5G, research on human health effects urgently needs to be done first to ensure the public and environment are protected. [sic]2

In December of 2015, an appeal signed by 215 scientists and doctors from 41 countries – published in the European Journal of Oncology – called for a moratorium on the roll out of 5G radiation, citing obvious concerns relating to human health. They write that,

[p. 180-181] Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plant and animal life. [sic]3

Less than two years following the first petition, another appeal was signed by over 180 scientists and doctors from 36 countries to once again recommend a moratorium on the development of 5G infrastructure within Europe. They cite that the installation of 5G frequencies is a direct violation of numerous international treaties, including the Precautionary Principal4, Resolution 1815 (Council of Europe 2011)5, and The Nuremburg Code (1949)6. They also cite that the currently enacted safety guidelines regulating wireless frequencies – as set by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) – are designed to protect the private sector. They explain that

The current ICNIRP ”safety guidelines” are obsolete. All proofs of harm mentioned above arise although the radiation is below the ICNIRP “safety guidelines”. Therefore new safety standards are necessary. The reason for the misleading guidelines is that “conflict of interest of ICNIRP members due to their relationships with telecommunications or electric companies undermine the impartiality that should govern the regulation of Public Exposure Standards for non-ionizing radiation...To evaluate cancer risks it is necessary to include scientists with competence in medicine, especially oncology.”
The current ICNIRP/WHO guidelines for EMF are based on the obsolete hypothesis that ”The critical effect of RF-EMF exposure relevant to human health and safety is heating of exposed tissue.” However, scientists have proven that many different kinds of illnesses and harms are caused without heating (”non-thermal effect”) at radiation levels well below ICNIRP guidelines. [sic]7

In 2018, the National Toxicology Program of the National Institute of Health published a 25 million dollar series of laboratory experiments that clearly showed brain and heart cancers in rats exposed to EMF levels of less than 1 GHz for less than 10 hours a day. Although tumor associations were clearly linked in male subjects, the association was not so clear in females, thereby leading the authors to conclude that the results were not entirely conclusive. Regardless, this study only highlights the need for regulation, as humans – including at the start of fetal development – are more likely exposed to much higher EMF levels 24 hours a day. According to the concluding statement,

[p. 163] Under the conditions of this 2-year whole-body exposure study, there was some evidence of carcinogenic activity of GSM [global System for Mobile Communication]-modulated cell phone RFR [Radio Frequency Radiation] at 900 MHz in male … Sprague Dawley (SD) rats based on the incidences of malignant schwannoma in the heart. The incidences of adenoma or carcinoma (combined) in the prostate gland, malignant glioma and benign ormalignant granular cell tumors in the brain, adenoma of the pars distalis in the pituitary gland, pheochromocytoma (benign, malignant, or complex combined) in the adrenal medulla, and pancreatic islet cell adenoma or carcinoma (combined) may have been related to cell phone RFR exposure. … Increases in non-neoplastic lesions in the heart, brain, and prostate gland of male rats, and of the heart, thyroid gland, and adrenal gland in female rats occurred with exposures to GSM cell phone RFR at 900 MHz. Increases in non-neoplastic lesions of the heart, brain, and prostate gland occurred in males, and of the brain in females exposed to CDMA [Code Division Multiple Access] cell phone RFR at 900 MHz.8

In corroboration with the NTP study, the Ramazzini Institute of Italy published a similar study that exposed rats to 1.8 GHz. They report that,

The [Ramazzini Institute] findings on far field exposure to RFR [radiofrequency radiation] are consistent with and reinforce the results of the [The National Toxicology Program] study on near field exposure, as both reported an increase in the incidence of tumors of the brain and heart in RFR-exposed Sprague-Dawley rats. These tumors are of the same histotype of those observed in some epidemiological studies on cell phone users. These experimental studies provide sufficient evidence to call for the re-evaluation of IARC conclusions regarding the carcinogenic potential of RFR in humans. [sic]9

Various health concerns related to EMF pollution have also been documented in numerous other studies, including:

Furthermore, there are multiple studies showing a clear link between chronic exposure to EMF fields and declining fertility functions. Considering the effects EMF has on our cells and the ability to break and alter DNA strands, this would make sense. A pair of researchers from South Korea explain that,

Through in vitro and in vivo studies, EMF exposure was found to alter the reproductive endocrine hormones, gonadal function, embryonic development, pregnancy, and fetal development … These effects were different according to the frequency, duration of exposure, and strength of EMFs. Humans in modern society cannot avoid various kinds of EMFs during household and occupational activities, but should be aware of the biological hazard of EMFs. The effort to avoid EMF exposure and techniques to protect or relieve EMF radiation are required to preserve our reproductive potential. [sic]18

These concerns have also been voiced by a two professors from the Jawaharlal Nehru University School of Environmental Science of New Delhi, India. They explain in a 2012 paper that there

[p. 2-3] … are many sources of EMF in our environment and this non-ionizing radiation interacts with the human body. Use of electronic household items and cell phones are reported to decrease fertility potential in men by decreasing sperm count, motility, viability, inducing pathological changes in sperm and testes morphology, and so on (...). In accordance with this, several authors (...) focused mainly on the male reproduction patterns. ... Spermatogenesis is a complex process and it is influenced by many genes and hormones. It takes place in the testis, which may be exposed to various microwave frequencies which are currently in use (...). Among various factors of infertility, oxidative stress has become the main focus of interest as a potential cause of male infertility (...). Male infertility is commonly associated with high rates of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) damage in the spermatozoa and such damage is correlated with a wide range of adverse clinical outcomes. Several studies, especially at power frequency 50/60 Hz magnetic field have found an association of exposure to human health, with emphasis on a range of clinical conditions including childhood leukemia, brain tumours, genotoxicity and neurodegenerative disease, infertility, birth defects, increased risk of miscarriage, childhood morbidity and de novo mutations (...). Sperm DNA damage is therefore regarded as a potential risk factor to the development of normal human embryos leading to impaired embryonic development. 19

In addition to human health concerns, several researcher teams have shown a direct link between EMF pollution and ecological harm, especially in the case of pollinating species such as the honeybees.20 21 22 23

Response of the Private Sector

In light of the depth of scientific literature briefly presented thus far, perhaps the most convincing piece of evidence does not come from what most consider as “authoritative sources”, but rather from those who stand to suffer significant capital loss, such as the insurance industry. For example, Lloyds of London - an insurance market made up of specialists underwriting more than 50 leading insurance companies – issued a 2010 risk report on the insurance of electromagnetic fields. In their report they note that

[p. 16] Many comparisons can be drawn between EMF and asbestos, and it is useful to look at the history of asbestos and the implications for the insurance industry to see what could happen with mobile phones if they prove to be harmful.
[p. 20] With regards to the implication to insurance, as the current scientific evidence stands, it is unlikely that insurers will be liable for compensation for bodily injury on product liability policies. However, as asbestos has shown, new scientific developments coupled with a small number of key legal cases can change the situation very rapidly.1

As the report noted, these “scientific developments” only took several years, as Lloyds of London began making amendments to their insurance policies. By February 18th, 2015, Lloyds of London’s UK agent – CFC Underwriting LTD. - issued a change of policy regarding compensation from EMF pollution.2 As they explain in their exclusion policy,

[p. 6] We will not
  1. make any payments on your behalf for any claim, or
  2. incur any costs or expenses, or
  3. reimburse you for any loss, damage, legal expenses, fees of costs sustained by you, or
  4. pay any medical expenses:
    … [p. 7] [Exclusion] 32. Electromagnetic Fields
directly or indirectly arising out of, resulting from or contributed to by electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic radiation, electromagnetism, radio waves or noise. 3

As CFC Underwriting explains regarding their recent policy change, they note that Exclusion 32 is a

General Insurance Exclusion and is applied across the market as standard. The purpose of the exclusion is to exclude cover for illnesses caused by continuous long-term non-ionising radiation exposure i.e. through mobile phone usage. (ibid).

Lloyds of London is not the only insurance company to re-write policies regarding damages from EMF pollution, as many insurance companies all around the world have redefined their definitions what constitutes damages from pollution. As Environmental Health Trust details in their report, insurance companies that have defined EMF as a form of pollution include4:

As a direct result of insurance companies refusing to insure EMF damage caused by the cellphone and telecommunication companies, companies like Verizon have issued warnings to investors – as early as 2014 – on the risks of their business.

[p. 19] We are subject to a substantial amount of litigation … our wireless business also faces personal injury and consumer class action lawsuits relating to alleged health effects of wireless phones or radio frequency transmitters, and class action lawsuits that challenge marketing practices and disclosures relating to alleged adverse health effects of handheld wireless phones. We may incur significant expenses in defending these lawsuits. In addition, we may be required to pay significant awards or settlements.5

Verizon isn’t the only one. Once again, as Environmental Health Trust notes, the following telecom companies have issued similar warnings to their investors. This list includes:

Local and International 5G Opposition

If you have read this paper this far and feel a sense of helplessness, then inform yourself of the others all around the world who have not stood idle, and have demanded the halting of 5G technology in their communities. For example, the city of Brussels, Belgium in April 2019 stopped the roll out of 5G amid unanswered health concerns. According to an article published in the Brussels Times,

In July, the government concluded an agreement with three telecom operators to relax the strict radiation standards in Brussels. But according to the Region, it is now impossible to estimate the radiation from the antennas required for the service.

“I cannot welcome such technology if the radiation standards, which must protect the citizen, are not respected, 5G or not,” Environment minister Céline Fremault (CDH) told Bruzz. “The people of Brussels are not guinea pigs whose health I can sell at a profit. We cannot leave anything to doubt,” she added. [sic]1

Brussels is not the only city in the world to voice their concerns. On July 20th, 2018, the city of Segovia, Spain formed a human chain link protest across the city shortly following presentations from international scientists on the dangers of 5G.2

Municipalities across Italy, including Florence3, Rome4 and Rocca di Papa5, have all issued moratoriums on 5G installation.

In Russia, the Ministry of Defense has refused to use 5G frequencies amid health concerns.6

In Switzerland, officials of Geneva, Neuchatel, and Vaud have refused to issue 5G permits until safety studies have been done.7

In addition, there are numerous petitions being formed and signed all throughout the world calling for the suspension of 5G, including in the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, and Germany.

In America, the city of Sebastopol, California forced Verizon to withdraw the construction of smart cell towers. Many other cities in California, including San Anselmo, San Rafael, Fairfax, Mill Valley, and Sievers are attempting to pass ordinances that prohibit the construction of 5G infrastructure.8 There are also reports that cities in Ohio, including Bexley, Columbus, Delaware, Westerville and Whitehall are taking legal actions to halt the construction of 5G infrastructure.9 In Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the mayor suspended the installation of 5G smart cells amid numerous complaints from residents.10

In the city of Hallandale Beach, local Floridian Carolina Lavayen managed to convince city commissioners to pass a resolution attempting to force the state legislature to investigate the health effects related to 5G infrastructure.11 Likewise, the village of Greendale, Wisconsin, has also passed a resolution calling for the federal government to allow the local municipality control over the installation of 5G.12

In the state of New Hampshire, House Bill 522 was filed on June 6th, 2019, attempting to establish a commission to “study the environmental and health effects of evolving 5G technology”. As rightfully demanded in the bill,

  1. Why the insurance industry recognized wireless radiation as a leading risk and has placed exclusions in their policies not covering damages caused by the pathological properties of electromagnetic radiation?
  2. Why do cell phone manufacturers have in the legal section within the devise saying keep the phone at least 5 mm from the body?
  3. Why have 1,000s of peer-reviewed studies, including the recently published U.S. Toxicology Program 16-year $30 million study, that are showing a wide-range of statistically significant DNA damage, brain and heart tumors, infertility, and so many other ailments, been ignored by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC)?
  4. Why are the FCC-sanctioned guidelines for public exposure to wireless radiation based only on the thermal effect on the temperature of the skin and do not account for the non-thermal, non-ionizing, biological effects of wireless radiation?
  5. Why are the FCC radiofrequency exposure limits set for the United States 100 times higher than countries like Russia, China, Italy, Switzerland, and most of Eastern Europe?
  6. Why did the World Health Organization (WHO) signify that wireless radiation is a Group B Possible Carcinogenic to Humans category, a group that includes lead, thalidomide, and others, and why are some experts who sat on the WHO committee in 2011 now calling for it be placed in the Group 1, which are known carcinogens, and why is such information being ignored by the FCC?
  7. Why have more than 220 of the worlds leading scientists signed an appeal to the WHO and the United Nations to protect public health from wireless radiation and nothing has been done?
  8. Why have the cumulative biological damaging effects of ever-growing numbers of pulse signals riding on the back of the electromagnetic sine waves not been explored, especially as the world embraces the Internet of Things, meaning all devices being connected by electromagnetic waves, and the exploration of the number of such pulse signals that will be created by implementation of 5G technology? [sic]

As of June 26th, 2019, only the cities of Minneapolis, Seattle and Chicago have installed and launched limited services for 5G networks. However several other major American cities have plans to install these towers in the near future, including San Jose, Atlanta, Dallas, New Orleans, Indianapolis, San Antonio, Jacksonville, Charlotte, Las Vegas, Orlando, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, and New York.13

Summary and What You Can Do

As former FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler so bluntly put, Unlike most countries, we do not believe that we should spend the next couple of years studying what 5G should be or how it should operate.” Meanwhile, incumbent FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has claimed that the FCC places “high priority on the safety of wireless services and devices”. Ironically, the FCC has not updated their regulations on EMFs since 1996. 1

Contrary to what the FCC, EPA and private industry have to say, there is more than enough adequate peer-reviewed evidence to – at the very least – cease all current 5G emissions and all other untested wireless frequencies. These invisible emissions are a form of pollution that not only affect the human environment, but the entire biosphere in which all living organisms of the ground and air coexist. In real terms, what the industry in collaboration with regulatory agencies are doing is nothing short of gross negligence, incompetence and sinister abuse of authority. At worst, these actions should be considered a covert attempt of mass genocide.

As a result of the out dated Telecommunications Act of 1996, local municipalities are prohibited to use environmental or health concerns as a reason to interfere with the placement of cell towers. As a result, many local governments are arguing that smart cells are an “aesthetic problem” and will lower property values. The simple fact that the American people must argue in court for these radioactive cell towers – towers that are a mere ten meters away from schools, hospitals, and the bedroom window of infants - must go because they are “ugly” is nothing short of insanity. For the taxpayer funded Federal government to assume jurisdiction of the air over the lands of the American community, whilst those in positions of public office remain submissive, is not only repulsive, it is a direct abridgment of the Constitution and 10th amendment. 2

As to why the FCC and federal regulatory agencies remain silent regarding EMF pollution can only be summed up by one term: institutional corruption. This corruption is a form of high treason. The FCC is in the pockets of the telecom industry, just as the Federal Reserve is owned by the banks, the EPA in the pockets of the pesticide conglomerates, and the FDA in the pockets of the pharmaceutical cartels and food manufacturers. Their resources are stacked mightily on the infamous K street in Washington, for this is not a “partisan issue”. Both parties that call themselves “Republicans” or “Democrats” all have their coffers filled by the same check writers. And of course, the mainstream media consortium will dare not challenge the official narrative of the FCC. Moreover, in view of 5G as being an “economic stimulator”, the Trump Administration has given the telecom gangs the go ahead green light to continue unopposed with this “evolution of technology”.

When one understands the true gravity of the situation, one can either feel utterly helpless and inept, or feel a great sense of injustice, betrayal and impulse for retribution.

As members of our community, and loyal citizens of the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America, we the people must dare not stand idle while these radioactive towers are constructed near our homes, schools, hospitals, and workplaces, for under the documents we hold sacred to the life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, we the American people not only have right but an obligation to defend ourselves and our countrymen.

We must take collective action in order to resist this rampant and unrestricted pollution of EMF radiation.

  1. Inform yourselves, your loved ones, neighbors, and all acquaintances of what is happening around us.

  2. Call your local, state, federal, and city council member offices to inform them about this pollution, and demand that they fulfill their sworn obligation of serving and protecting the public.

  3. Take proper measures to avoid being exposed by unnecessary levels of EMF, measures which include but are not limited to:

4. If you are a resident of the city of Minneapolis, or state of Minnesota, here are several offices you should voice your concerns to.

3There is now an entire industry developed for the purpose of helping consumers shield or harmonize harmful EMF levels. There are also certain minerals, such as the mineral shungite mined in Russia, that have been known for years to harmonize EMF fields. The American based company EMF Blues has designed a line of affordable products known as “Crystal Catalyst Resonators” that are patented and tested to absorb and convert harmful EMF fields so that they are no longer harmful to the body. These minerals can be tested using the principals of applied kinesiology, aka basic muscle testing. https://emfblues.com/
