As society strives for progress, seeks innovation, and continues to advance step by step to reach its highest potential.
It is critical to realize that your environment is changing without your permission.
Our team at Einstein Brain are strong believers that technological advancement is incredibly beneficial to humans. Technology has improved our lives in several meaningful ways.
It’s changed the way we interact with each other; it has allowed us to connect with lost friends in different parts of the world, it has changed the way business is done, the way we communicate, the way we keep in touch, it’s also made our lives easier, simpler, faster, better, and even more fun.
It wasn’t that long ago that emails or text messages didn’t exist! So yes, technology is progress and progress is great however how safe is it if its negative consequences are often overlooked?
The demand for a futuristic world is increasing at a concerning pace and it has risen questions among top experts and professionals. Technology has never been spoken of in this large scale as it’s been now. And then you have 5G.
If there is one thing Covid-19 has done, was to accelerate the need for faster and more advanced technology. – Home offices, online meetings, innovation, and fast-speed communication.
We are walking towards a fully technologic digital era.
Since the World Health Organisation issued a report classifying radio-frequency, electromagnetic fields radiation as "possibly carcinogenic" to humans back in 2011, little has changed when we talk prevention or understanding for its health effects and risks.
The world on the other hand, technologically speaking, has changed drastically especially due to the 5G implementation.
EMF radiation and radio-frequency radiation is emitted by every wi-fi device such as smartphones, laptops, desktops, wireless headphones, etc…
Did you know?
Since 2019 we are exposed 350 times more to man-made electromagnetic fields and their harmful effects than in 2005...
The expectations are that this number will double (700 times) or even triple (1000 times) in the near future!
Why? – Well, that is due to the heavy implementation of 5G, and note that the network technology is being rolled out and installed somewhere as you read this article.
What is 5G?
5G is the fifth generation of cellular networks, is faster connectivity speeds, ultra-low latency, and greater bandwidth.
Let’s look at the evolution of the mobile technology:
This new technology runs on the same radio frequencies that are currently being used for your smartphone, on Wi-Fi networks and in satellite communications, but it enables technology to go a lot further.
Beyond being able to download a full-length HD movie to your phone in seconds (even from a crowded stadium), 5G is really about connecting things everywhere – reliably, without lag – so people can measure, understand and manage things in real time.
It all seems great right? But do you spot the problem? How can all that happen? - Through low frequency non-ionising radiation!
When is 5G expected to be fully implemented?
Well, that depends in the countries and how developed they are. If we look at the UK as an example, 5G officially arrived in the UK at the end of May 2019, though only two networks – EE and Vodafone – initially offered 5G plans ..
We're still a long way of full coverage, with most providers currently targeting 2022 as the year the whole of the UK should be able to access 5G on its network.
Why is 5G different to previous Networks and why is it raising concerns?
5G technology is up to 100 times faster than 4G technology, and just like it’s creating never-seen-before opportunities for people and businesses; it’s also causing incredibly negative never-seen-before health effects among population.
As with previous cellular technologies, 5G networks rely on signals carried by radio waves - part of the electromagnetic spectrum - transmitted between an antenna or mast and your phone.
We're surrounded by electromagnetic radiation all the time - from television and radio signals, as well as from a whole range of technologies, including mobile phones, and from natural sources such as sunlight.
5G uses higher frequency waves than earlier mobile networks, allowing more devices to have access to the internet at the same time and at faster speeds.
These waves travel shorter distances through urban spaces, so 5G networks require more transmitter masts than previous technologies, positioned closer to ground level.
What does this mean? - The answer is simple = An increased radiation exposure
If 5G was to be allocated or integrated in the Electromagnetic Spectrum, this is where it would be:
High radiation exposure is a known factor for the development of certain types of cancer.
5G is thought to be the leading causing factor of cancer in the near future.
Even though industry big tech corporation funded studies on EMF and 5G have not found "conclusive and strong" scientific evidence to support claims related to the negative and harmful effects caused by wireless technology radiation and 5G, it’s important to keep in mind the report issued by The World Health Organisation in 2011 classifying EMF Radiation as “possibly carcinogenic”.
It’s also critical for a better judgment to keep in mind that non-industry funded independent laboratories have, in fact, found critical information supporting these claims and yet, they have been either silenced or intimidated and in most cases, scientists lost their funding.
This raised the question – Does funding matter? Especially when there is an extremely profitable conflict of interests… We will let you answer that question to yourself.
“Possibly carcinogenic”? EMF Radiation has been put in this category just as eating pickled vegetables and using talcum powder which later, was discovered to be hazardous to humans.
Many scientists believe EMF radiation to be “The Next Asbestos” …
If you consider Asbestos as an example:
- Asbestos was widely used during the 20th century until the 1970s when public recognition of the health hazards of asbestos dust led to its prohibition in mainstream construction and fireproofing in most countries.
Did you know?
- The first documented death related to asbestos was in 1906. The first diagnosis of asbestosis was made in the UK in 1924.
Occurrence of Pulmonary Fibrosis & Other Pulmonary Affections in Asbestos Workers was presented to Parliament on 24 March 1930. It concluded that the development of asbestosis was irrefutably linked to the prolonged inhalation of asbestos dust, and included the first health study of asbestos workers, which found that 66% of those employed for 20 years or more suffered from asbestosis.
Despite this, and in part because the consequences of exposure can take decades to arise, at least 100,000 people are thought to die each year from diseases related to asbestos exposure.
This fact alone is alarming when compared to EMF Radiation. Mobile phones and other wireless technologic devices have only been around for less than 50 years. With asbestos, industries pushed back halting the usage of asbestos for another 50 years. How far will we go with wireless devices?
A toxicology report released in 2018 by the US Department of Health, and pointed to by those expressing safety concerns, found that male rats exposed to high doses of radio frequency radiation developed a type of cancerous tumour in the heart.
For this study, rats' whole bodies were exposed to radiation from mobile phones for nine hours a day every day for two years, starting before they were born.
Did you know?
- A group of scientists and doctors wrote to the EU calling for the rollout of 5G to be halted?
Should we be worried about 5G transmitter masts?
5G technology requires a lot of new base stations - these are the masts that transmit and receive mobile phone signals. More new base stations equal more radiation exposure.
According to existing implementation plans, about 50 base stations are required per square kilometre. If 5G base stations are covered nationwide in China for instance, 9.6 million x 50=480 million base stations are required.
What symptoms can you experience when exposed to EMF Radiation?
Electromagnetic Fields radiation can take a huge toll on the human body and symptoms vary from short to long-term depending on how frequent and how exposed you are to EMF Radiation.
If you live in a city, please know that your exposure is above the healthy levels, and I hate to repeat myself: That is now. Wait for 5G rollout to be fully implemented.
Short-term considered symptoms are often overlooked at as people often don't associate them with EMF exposure such as headaches, stress, fatigue, difficulty in concentration, sleep disturbance or insomnia, brain fog, dizziness and memory loss, depression, etc.
Long-Term considered symptoms, unfortunately and on the contrary, when spotted are often "too late" to prevent, such as cancer, brain tumours, cardiovascular diseases, electromagnetic hypersensitivity, organ and tissue damage, infertility, DNA alterations, Alzheimer, etc)
The following chart (taken from a study conducted by Dr. Magda Havas) illustrates symptoms experienced by people in relation to their proximity to cellular phone base stations or Base Transceiver Station (BTS). This is a study performed prior to the invention of 5G. You’ve seen above how many new base stations are required for 5G to work at its full capacity. Keep in mind all the facts learned throughout this article when taking conclusions.
It is clear, that the bigger the proximity to base stations, the bigger the health issues are, and as previously mentioned, 5G requires a lot more new bases stations nationwide.
It’s irresponsible to choose to deny and not to see the ugly truth behind our comfortable, technologically supported life.
So, what can you do? - Firstly, educate yourself! Do research, understand 5G and how it can affect your health.
