5G : The Next Generation of Wireless Communication

Radiation and Implications for Our Health and the Environment

What is 5G?

5G is the fifth generation of wireless communication infrastructure, which is radically different from previous generations of wireless (2G, 3G, and 4G LTE), and plans are to install it worldwide beginning 2019-2020.  5G will utilize a wide spectrum of frequencies ranging from microwaves to millimeter waves.   Plans are to blanket the whole earth with a plethora of new antennas and satellites in earth orbit to provide wireless radiation everywhere and enable everything to be connected to the internet--the IoT—internet of things, including self-driving vehicles.  It is a major increase in the bandwidth and type of wireless radiation to which all of us and the entire biosphere will be exposed, without consideration of  the risks to life on earth, our health, the environment, and without our consent.

Because 5G signals do not travel very far, plans are to install 5G antennas approximately every 60 to 300 meters everywhere, including in residential areas.  This will significantly increase our wireless radiation exposure.  These waves are also digital, meaning that they are pulsed on and off rapidly.  No living thing can adapt to such irregular signals, such that 5G will be a ongoing  provocation and an  unmitigated stressor to all life on earth, with no clear understanding of the long-term effects.

No Safety Studies

In a hearing at the US Senate in February, 2019, senior telecom executives admitted they have not done any safety testing on 5G, nor do they plan to do any. Currently, there are over two dozen cities in the U.S. and countless cities abroad that already have 5G, yet there is no scientific evidence to support any claim of safety for it.

What related research does show is cause for alarm. Thousands of independent studies indicate adverse health effects from wireless radiation in these frequencies. These range from cancer and sterility to DNA damage.   The US government’s human exposure guidelines have not been updated in more than 20 years, while radiation from communication devices--cell phones, cordless phones, WiFi routers, tablets, and wireless baby monitors, among other consumer products, has increased exponentially in that time.  Moreover, “radio sickness” has been well known for decades with respect to radar and other specialized technologies.  

What 5G Will Enable

The 5G agenda is vast.  It includes 200 billion transmitting objects, according to estimates, that will be part of the IoT by 2020, with one trillion transmitting objects coming online a few years later.  5G is meant to usher in more robotics, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, and self-driving vehicles.

5G base stations and 5G devices will have multiple antennas in phased arrays that work together to emit focused, steerable, pencil-thin, intense beams that are forever changing direction with user demand for signals.  Each 5G phone will function like a mini cell tower, containing dozens of tiny antennas working together to track and aim a narrowly focused beam to search and connect with the nearest antenna. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the US has adopted rules that permit these beams to be as high as 20 watts, which is 10 times more than levels currently allowed on cell phones. 

Scientific Evidence of Harm

Numerous studies on microwave and millimeter wave radiation have shown a range of biological effects, indicating that 5G may produce more harmful effects that previous generations of wireless. Greater than 10,000 peer-reviewed scientific studies conducted by independent researchers worldwide demonstrate the harmful biological effects of wireless radiation. Because of their developmental stages, fetuses in mothers’ wombs and children are much more susceptible. In addition, wireless radiation effects are cumulative, putting children at greater risk.  Documented biological effects include the following:  

  • Detrimental effects on fetal and newborn development
  • Detrimental effects on young children
  • Brain tumors and acoustic neuromas
  • DNA damage and altered gene expression
  • Neurological effects and cognitive impairment
  • Impaired sperm function and quality; fertility problems
  • Learning and memory deficits
  • Behavioral and performance changes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Altered metabolism


One mechanism of action that explains the enormous expanse of biological effects was proposed by Martin Pall, PhD.  He demonstrated that voltage-gated calcium channels in cell membranes are disrupted by wireless radiation,  resulting in increased intracellular calcium, an important internal biological signal, which affects numerous biochemical reactions inside our cells.   Scientific research also suggests that an increase in frequencies, with 5G, may worsen harmful effects.

Question the Real Purpose of 5G 

The multi-trillion dollar wireless telecom industry wields massive lobbying power and formidable public influence through pervasive, propagandistic advertising and media presence promoting 5G, and has influenced governments around the world. 

In the Information Age, data, and especially its rapid delivery, drives the economy. 5G is being touted as the next industrial revolution, when, in fact, it amounts to greater surveillance, in which intimate details of our lives will be tracked, recorded and sold to other industries, irradiating us all the while. There is also a race among nations to roll out 5G to not only boost the economy, but for those countries to rule the world via technocracy.  

Earth Blanketed in 5G Radiation

In addition to millions of new base stations and antennas to be deployed worldwide on the land, 5G involves launching at least 20,000 satellites into lower earth orbit, which will blast earth with 5G frequencies to make a worldwide wireless web (wwww) of radiation.  Companies to launch these satellites include Elon Musk’s SpaceX, OneWeb, and Amazon. Hundred of these satellites have already been launched, with more on the way. The direct radiation from these satellites, combined with their contamination of our ionosphere, along with pollution of the global electrical circuit may be catastrophic for all life on earth.  5G threatens to provoke serious, irreversible effects on humans and damage to all ecosystems. 

Proposed Solution for a Safe 5G

We must take immediate measures now to stop the proliferation of wireless 5G in order to protect our health, the well-being of our future generations, and indeed, all life on earth.  One solution is to build a completely wired 5G using optical fiber over which light signals will traverse.  This involves no wireless radiation whatsoever, and is completely safe.

How is the Intensity of EMF Radiation Measured?

The intensity is measured as power density, which is defined as power per unit area. It is expressed in Watts per square meter (W/m2) or as power ratio in decibels (dBm).

Governmentally Approved Safe Limits of Exposure

In adopting the most recent RF exposure guidelines, the FCC consulted with the EPA, FDA, OSHA and NIOSH, and obtained their support for the guidelines that the FCC is using.
