A Home Should Be a Haven: 5G Radiation Awareness

by Gail Thomas

Many popular health experts write about reducing the dangers of electromagnetic radiation (EMR). With the ever-growinguse of all things wireless, EMR can be fairly hard to avoid, but there are healthy steps that can be taken, such as careful use of cell phones and Wi-Fi. But with Fifth Generation wireless, or 5G, slowly cropping up in major cities, not just in the U.S. but all over the world, precautions are more necessary than ever.

The primary place where sleep and healing take place is in the home. 5G will require a massive expansion of wireless antennas from large macro towers that are located at greater distances, to millions of closely spaced small antennas that will permeate all commercial areas, but more importantly, residential areas. In fact, these 5G small cells would be placed around the height of a bedroom window outside most homes. Many people do not want cell towers in front of their house.

There can be significant impact on personal health. The Environmental Health Trust, Physicians for Safe Technology,and Building Biology Institute are some of the many organizations that have been raising awareness of the truth about 5G wireless.

In February, Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut addressed the U.S. Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee on 5G and its health and public safety implications. He describes the rollout of 5G prior to safety testing as “flying blind.”

Even before 5G came into the picture, the National Toxicology Program, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, has conducted toxicology studies to help clarify potential health hazards, including cancer risk, from radio frequency radiation exposure from cell phones. Clear evidence of tumors was found.

Yet with the increase of 5G electro smog, which uses millimeter waves (mmW) at higher frequencies than previous wireless generations, even more subtle biological symptoms could occur, which chip away at health over time. “Since skin contains capillaries and nerve endings, mmW bio-effects may be transmitted through molecular mechanisms by the skin or through the nervous system,” says Dr. Joel Moskowitz, a public health professor at the University of California, Berkeley.

The impact of 5G will be an exponential increase in the amount of radio frequency radiation in the environment. Because of the robust number of antennas needed on existing 4G towers, utility poles, street lights and other new or existing structures, greater amounts of radiation will soon encroach upon private residences where rest and healing take place, especially during sleep. At this time, no independent 5G safety studies are available to ensure the public that there is no health risk involved.

No safety studies are being planned before the roll out of this technology. It’s being advertised and marketed for super fast speeds, but nothing is being said about how that will be delivered. Many people will wake up to find small cells in their neighborhoods, near schools and parks, and will simply have to live with it whether they desire the service or not.

A place to rejuvenate and recover from the stresses of life is essential to a healthy lifestyle. That luxury stands to be taken away from all citizens with the forthcoming rollout of 5G infrastructure in cities and towns, near schools, parks and homes. Knowing the truth about 5G is the first step in maintaining a sanctuary within the home.
