All cell towers emit Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation. There are literally hundreds of peer reviewed scientific studies from around the world that have linked this “non-ionizing” form of electromagnetic radiation to things like cancer, DNA damage (especially in infants and fetuses), and infertility. And Kevin Mottus of the US Brain Tumor Association says that within the radio frequency portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, the higher the frequency, the more dangerous the radiation is.
With RF Radiation, how close the source is to our physical bodies is more important than the power level (or wattage) of the radiation. RF Radiation dissipates with distance. In other words, a low powered exposure right next to someone, is more dangerous than a more powerful exposure a long ways away. Also the longer the exposure time is, the more dangerous it is. 5G will be the worst of both worlds. We will have more sources around us, and closer to us. And they will be more powerful and continuous emissions. (Related article “5G Health Risks Debunked – Get The Facts!“)
(Before we get into the rest of this article I just want to mention one thing. Many people that come to this site are also interested in emergency preparedness. If you are interested in this subject you might want to check out EmergencyPrepGuy.com. It has really good information on all types of emergency preparation.)
Mini 5G Cell Tower In Your Home
Many people do not realize that they already have a mini cell tower emitting high levels of RF Radiation in their homes and offices right now. We call them WiFi routers. (If you have a 5G wireless router emitting the 60 GHz frequency, then you have a 5G mini cell tower in your home.)
Just like a cell tower, a WiFi router emits at full power 24 hours a day 7 days a week, or as long as you have it turned on. It’s range includes your entire home and beyond. It’s radiation is the exact same RF Radiation that a cell tower emits, or that your microwave oven uses to cook your food.
For example, my WiFi router is a Netgear 5 GHz router that emits both at the 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequencies. A microwave oven uses 2.45 GHz frequency to cook food. The new 5G WiFi routers that are available now use the 60 GHz, 5 GHz and the 2.4 GHz frequencies. That is a lot of RF Radiation we are exposing our selves and our families to.
It is possible to protect yourself from the RF Radiation emitted by the mini cell tower in your home we call your WiFi router. By far the best way to protect yourself is to hard wire your home with Ethernet cables (preferably “low emf Ethernet cables”). Then you can turn off the WiFi completely so that your router does not emit any RF Radiation.
But if you have to have a WiFi router, here are two ways to protect against its radiation. The first is to use technology to neutralize the harmful effects of the radiation. And the second is to put your WiFi router in a box (called a router guard) to reduce the amount of RF Radiation it emits. Let’s talk briefly about these two methods and then we will talk more about 5G.
Neutralizing The Radiation
Believe it or not there is a scientific way to change the RF Radiation in your home to a more natural less harmful form. There is a company called Aulterra out of north Idaho (check them out here at: Aulterra.com) that has produced a way to do this that has a lot of amazing science behind it.
I go over all of the science in my article entitled “Aulterra EMF Neutralizer Products Review“, but I will go over a little of it here for you. Kim Dandurand developed this technology in 1996 when he was engaged in a major environmental cleanup project where this technology was used to neutralize chemical and radioactive waste from landfill sites.
He then funded a bunch of studies to see if these same paramagnetic minerals would neutralize RF Radiation. What he learned was that they do 2 things. First they decrease the intensity of the radiation. And second they neutralize the effects of electromagnetic radiation rendering it harmless to human DNA.
Basically, the way I understand it, the paramagnetic minerals within the Aulterra products form a magnetic field that changes the man-made waves emitted by WiFi devices into a more natural form. This reduces the damage they cause by about 95%.
The products Aulterra produces reduce the intensity and the damaging affect of RF Radiation. The below is a video of a man getting a blood test done two different ways as a comparison. The first was done after him talking on his cellphone. And then the second test was done after him talking on the cellphone with the Aulterra Neutralizer on his cellphone.
The “5G Hype” has been going on now for a few years. However 2019 and 2020 are the years that cellular carriers begin the process of rolling it all out. Verizon, AT&T and Sprint have all started installation of their networks, though widespread availability is still several years away. 5G is starting to get a foot-hold as 5G cell towers start to get installed in a dozen or so cities across the US.
5G is a technology that uses most of the microwave portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. In that range the radio waves are shorter in length, travel shorter distances, get obstructed much more easily, but can carry much more data. It is this more data part that has attracted the technology industry to 5G. More data means more capabilities.
Similar to how download speeds increased significantly when we switched from the 3G to 4G cellular networks. 5G promises to dramatically increase download speeds. Instead of taking hours to download a movie it can happen in just a minute or two. And this opens up the possibility of things like self driving cars, holograms and connecting every electronic device to the network.
5G Part Of Electromagnetic Spectrum
In the chart below you see what is called the “electromagnetic spectrum”. Both the “Radio waves” and “Microwaves” sections of the below chart are part of what is called the Radio Frequency (RF) portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. So microwaves are just a higher frequency radio wave. And remember that within the RF Radiation part of the electromagnetic spectrum, the higher the frequency the more dangerous the waves are to living organisms. (This is not the case in the infrared and visible light portions of the spectrum.)
In the above image it shows that the “Radio waves” section of the spectrum is wider than the “Microwaves” section. This is actually not an accurate depiction. Radio waves go from around 3 KHz (0.000003 GHz) to about 1 GHz, while Microwaves go from around 1 GHz all the way up to 300 GHz.
The “Radio waves” part of the above chart include things like sonar and AM & FM radio. The Microwaves part of the chart includes US Military crowd control weapons, microwave ovens, airport scanners, and the 1G, 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G cellular networks. 1G, 2G, 3G, 4G uses between 1 GHz and 6 GHz, whereas 5G is expected to use from around 24 GHz all the way up to 300 GHz.
5G’s “Non- Ionizing” Radiation
When you read articles on the internet about 5G health risks it really depends who wrote the article as to what opinion they give. It is really kind of sad. The most common theme that you hear from any technology or government website is that since Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation is a “non ionizing” form of electromagnetic radiation, there is no way it could be harmful to us.
For example there is a current article on the website HowToGeek.com which is a prime example of what I am talking about. It would almost be funny, if it were not so sad. In this article its author states: “It’s easy to find claims online that the greater frequency of 5G alone constitutes a risk. RadiationHealthRisks.com observes that “1G, 2G, 3G and 4G use between 1 to 5 gigahertz frequency.
5G uses between 24 to 90 gigahertz frequency,” and then asserts that “Within the RF Radiation portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, the higher the frequency, the more dangerous it is to living organisms.” But asserting that the higher frequency is more dangerous is just that—an assertion, and there’s little real science to stand behind it. 5G remains non-ionizing in nature.” (As you can see in this statement they even quote us here at RadiationHealthRisks.com).
It is totally amazing to me how writers like this present themselves as experts. In the above quoted article they say “It sounds worrisome, but let’s take a look at the actual science” and then the author only uses one example of a scientific study, and skews what they actually found. In another quote from this article it reads “and there’s little real science to stand behind it”. They make this statement ignoring the hundreds and hundreds of very easy to find peer reviewed studies by unbiased scientists that show massive health problems resulting from “non-Ionizing” RF Radiation. They pretend to be the authority, but they are not giving correct information.
I list links to many of these studies on the scientific studies page of this website. I had a link to the scientific studies page of this website in the same article HowToGeek.com took their quote from. But they apparently did not bother to go there. They either have an agenda and are purposely trying to mislead, or they were just not very thorough in their research for their article. If you are interested in this subject I highly recommend you going to the scientific studies page of this website and research out this topic for yourself!
U.S. Military’s 5G “Active Denial System”
This link is an article about the US Military’s Microwave crowd control weapon called the “Active Denial System”. It disperses crowds by heating up their skins. It uses the 95 GHz 5G frequency to do this. This frequency is well below the 300 GHz frequency some 5G devices may use. And all of these RF Radiation frequencies are “non-ionizing”. The power level of this system is much higher, but it utilizes a frequency within the 5G range.
How Dangerous Is 5G Radiation?
5G Radiation is a high frequency form of Microwave radiation. A microwave oven cooks your food using the 2.45 GHz frequency. 5G frequencies are expected to range from about 24 GHz up to about 300 GHz. As mentioned earlier Kevin Mottus of the US Brain Tumor Association says that within the radio frequency portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, which includes the 5G microwave range, the higher the frequency, the more dangerous the radiation is to living organisms.
In the below video is an expert in Microwave radiation and its health effects named Dr. Barrie Trower. Dr. Trower spent his whole career studying and learning about the biological effects of Microwave radiation. He is a British Physicist and began his career working with this radiation in the British Royal Navy and in the British Secret Service. There he learned about how it could be used as a weapon and what health affects it had in those scenarios. Later he became a professor and spent his life teaching and studying Microwave radiation. Barrie gets into the meat of Microwave health effects starting at about the 6 minute mark in the video.
5G and You
There’s no doubt 5G will change our physical and virtual landscape. However, it’s clear this technology comes with major health concerns too. The wave of the future may also mean a wave of new cancers, illnesses, and disabilities.
More research and studies need to be completed before the entire 5G rollout is complete. The potential health consequences associated with the 5G infrastructure is too great to ignore. If you can, stay in contact with your government and advocate for local control over where 5G mini cell towers are located. We must approach this new technology with respect and caution.”
