5G May be Hazardous to Your Health

Way back when, the tobacco companies were forced to put a label on cigarette packs saying “Warning: Smoking may be hazardous to your health.”

Eventually the language was strengthened to say, “Warning: The Surgeon General has determined that smoking is hazardous to your health.”

Of course, this happened after countless deaths were determined to be related to smoking.

Ironically (or NOT) the tobacco companies survived and are still flourishing today.  (they’re in the marijuana business)

But what’s behind the curtain with the over-hyped 5G technology…and why should you be concerned?

Let’s start with… According to experts with the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSMA), all the hype surrounding 5G is misleading.

Over a million new cell towers will have to be erected to make 5G work as intended.

The downside of this (and what they don’t want you to know) is this influx of cell towers will emit short wavelength microwaves and will bombard homes with significant amounts of radiation.

Not Good.

In other words, the over-hype of 5G is downplaying human health risks.

Maybe it’s time the Surgeon General issues a warning label for Cell Phones.

Despite the claims about how soon 5G takes over, the PR groups leave out several very important facts:

  • 5G won’t become a reality for consumers unless mobile operators upgrade their networks with 5G gear made by companies such as Finland’s Nokia or China’s Huawei. (Hint! Hint!)
  • The 5G networks are “in the early stages” and will only be compatible with select smart phones in the coming years.
  • These 5G compatible phones will be expensive and will rely on 4G networks to get going. 
  • 5G technology utilizes higher-frequency MMW bands, which give off the same dose of radiation as airport scanners.


Same as airport scanners?


Are the health risks of 5G worth a few more milliseconds of data retrieval?

Enquiring minds want to know.

And turn your phone off when you’re not using it.
