EMF and 5G Microwave Radiation – What is it?

The 5G Appeal group of experts point out that as a result of ”the ever more extensive use of wireless technologies,” nobody can avoid to be exposed to radio frequency electromagnetic frequency (RF-EMF) radiation. There will be vastly increased number of transmitters rolled out because of the new 5G technology in industrial and residential areas, shops, hospitals and wherever else humans are present. According to estimates, ”10 to 20 billion connections” such as to refrigerators, washing machines, surveillance cameras, self-driving cars, buses, and innumerable other devices, will be part of the Internet of Things. These countless myriad sources of electromagnetic radiation will with certainty cause a substantial increase in the total, long term RF-EMF exposure to all EU citizens.

During the recent years over 240 scientists from more than 40 countries have expressed their “serious concerns”, via EMF Scientists Appeal, regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to radiation generated by electric and wireless devices. The scientists refer to the fact that even without the 5G technology, ”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 plants and animals.

Scientists and doctors call for a moratorium on the roll-out of 5G in the European Union – this appeal against 5G was made in 2017 – 5G will substantially increase exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields RF-EMF that has been proven to be harmful to humans and other species. This means that radio frequency electromagnetic fields, and in particular 5G, are a threat to the planetary ecosystems, the biosphere that sustains and maintains all life on Earth.

As of May 18, 2020, 377 scientists and medical doctors have signed the appeal.

The appeal was submitted in September 2017 to the European Commission.

What is 5G

5G signifies “5th generation” wireless technology. It is said to provide faster and higher transmission capacity. It includes Internet of Things (IoT), driverless cars, and faster video streaming.

5G will massively increase the microwave and millimeter wave radiation in our environment. It will also use new frequencies that have not been evaluated as to safety by experts who independent from the industry.

5G will include the higher millimeter wave frequencies, previously used for crowd control for instance. The millimeter waves do not travel easily through buildings so 5G will require millions of new “small cell” antennas.

The wireless telecom industry intend to outfit nearly every lamp post or utility post around all countries with these wireless small cell antennas beaming hazardous radiation next to, or into our homes, schools, work places, literally everywhere, all day, every day.

5G radiation will be sent from advanced antennas, so called phased arrays that transmit the microwaves and/or millimeter waves in narrow bands, a technology originally developed for military purposes. This will massively increase the exposure to radiation in those beams. There will be nowhere we can hide from this radiation.

The massive increase of radiation has been researched in a scientific paper published in 2017. This study points out “Our results show that 5G downlink Radio Frequency fields generate significantly higher power density and specific absorption rate than a current cellular system.” As a result of these findings a larger phased antenna is used or when a user moves closer to the Access Points (transmitters), the Power Density value becomes a major health concern. More research about the health effects of 5G is required before it is deployed on the basis of the current inadequate Radio Frequency emission standards.

A substantial and convincing amount of scientific studies show many adverse health effects and health hazards from radiofrequency or microwave radiation.

No evaluation of health effects nor of effects on the wildlife and the environment has been undertaken. There is no research showing safety neither from 5G alone, nor from the combined exposure to 5G + already existing radiation from GSM, 3G, WiFi, 4G and other forms of radio frequency electromagnetic fields RF-EMF.

This is why the 5G Appeal was launched.
