In Germany, researchers studied 1000 residents who lived in close proximity to two cell phone towers for about 10 years. According to the study, during the last five years of the observations, researchers discovered neighbors living within 400 meters of the cell towers were diagnosed with cancer at a rate that was three times higher than those who lived much further away.
“This study raises concerns that simply living close to a cell tower will pose threats to human health. Governments need to take measures to reduce exposures from cell tower emissions. Cell towers should not be near schools, hospitals or people’s homes. Public health agencies need to educate the public on how to reduce exposure from all sources of wireless radiofrequency radiation- be it from cell towers or cell phones or Wi-Fi in schools,” said Dr. David Carpenter, former Dean of the School of Public Health and the University of Albany.
According to Dr. Joel Moskowitz, a public health professor at the University of California, the increase in mini-cell towers across towns and cities is only part of the concern. Dr. Moskowitz says the lower frequency millimeter waves used in 5G could cause major skin, eye, and nervous system problems.
“The deployment of 5G, or fifth generation cellular technology, constitutes a massive experiment on the health of all species… Because MMWs are weaker than microwaves, they are predominantly absorbed by the skin, meaning their distribution is quite focused there. Since skin contains capillaries and nerve endings, MMW bio-effects may be transmitted through molecular mechanisms by the skin or through the nervous system,” said Dr. Moskowitz.
Dr. Moskowitz is not alone in his concern about 5G.
Dr. Yael Stein from Jerusalem’s Hebrew University recently wrote a letter to the Federal Communications Commission outlining his major concerns about 5G, MMV and how it could impact human skin. You can read Dr Stein statements in the following link.
Even, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, which depends directly from the World Health Organization, has a consistent paper published where it classifies radiofrequency and electromagnetic fields as a potential menace for health.
The 5G technology uses frequencies from 2.5Ghz to 300Ghz. This means that the range of the waves is shorter, therefore antennas must be placed even closer each other than the current 3G/4G networks, which operate in range of frequency much lower.
The fact on frequency for this kind of network, is related to speed, the higher the frequency, the higher the speed of transmission. As well, the higher the frequency, the shorter the range. That's why new 5G technology deployment will increase the number of antennas out there.
The fact, crucially is, that those antennas will be cause more damage to our body system, as they are closer and as they emit higher frequency waves.
