5G wireless service has just been launched by Verizon in the first 4 cities on the planet: Sacramento, California, Houston, Texas, Indianapolis, Indiana, and Los Angeles, California. Verizon launched it on October 1, offering free 5G to users for three months.
Sacramento’s 5G saturated locations are visible on this map, in the light red circular patches.
Soon, dozens of other American cities will be saturated with 5G frequencies, when AT&T launches its network.
The AT&T network also set to launch in late 2018, will happen in 23 metropolitan areas, many of them in the south: Atlanta, Georgia, Austin, Texas, Bridgeport, Connecticut, Boston, Massachusetts, Fresno, California, Buffalo, New York, Chicago, Illinois, Greenville, South Carolina, Houston, Texas again, Indianapolis, Indiana again, Los Angeles, California again, Sacramento, California again, San Diego, California, San Francisco, California, Hartford, Connecticut, San Antonio, Texas, New Orleans, Louisiana, Tulsa, Oklahoma, Louisville, Memphis, and Nashville, Tennessee, Oklahoma City, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Here’s some basic info to know about exactly what 5G is.
As 5G is rolled out, the cell towers we normally see are going to be replaced with smaller cells, closer to our heads on buildings and short poles, emitting higher frequencies than the current cell towers. These little cells will be on poles everywhere if people allow this to come to fruition.
These small, white, seemingly plastic encased cells emitting higher frequencies closer to our heads are being spotted now on the streets of these cities.
Current 4G WiFi operates generally under 1 gigahertz (GHz), according to Verizon, but that doesn’t seem to be accurate because regular WiFi usually runs on 2.45 GHz.
5G runs on millimeter waves, a spectrum of frequency much higher. It will be on millimeter-length wavelengths between 30 and 300 gigahertz (GHz).
Verizon’s current 4-city deployment of 5G runs between 28 and 39 GHz, according to them.
The thing about 5G is, different carriers are going to run their 5G on different frequency bands, and they will rise in frequency, until our WifFi, our phones and computers suddenly run on frequencies as high as 60 GHz.
When 5G reaches 60 GHz frequencies, it is believed that this will really, really cause people health problems.
WiFi at 2.45 GHz is already known to cause a litany of health problems, and it’s thought to be linked to the infertility crisis currently hitting America and countries all over the world. WiFi is connected to cancer, infertility, birth defects, sleep disorders, memory problems, cardiovascular diseases, infertility, and more. That’s a whole other body of research.
This article is obviously written from the perspective that our health is no sacrifice for the ability to have Internet that is faster. For all the people who may suffer from health problems, and their families now being saturated with the frequencies, this article series from Edge Canopy is going to put the research in one place with solid sources.
To begin examining potential health problems from 5G, firefighters in San Francisco exposed to early trials of it experienced health problems.
Even local news articles from Sacramento admitted it could cause health problems. According to Sacramento CBS:
“Sacramento will be the first city in the country to get 5G cell service later this summer, but health concerns are now being raised about the equipment.
5G uses high frequency waves and is supposed to be 100 times faster than the current cell phone service. However, the 5G waves don’t travel as far as current wireless frequencies so instead of large cell phone tower equipment spread far apart, the 5G requires small cell sites closer together.”
“Firefighters in San Francisco have reported memory problems and confusion after the 5G equipment was installed outside of fire stations. The firefighters claim the symptoms stopped when they relocated to stations without equipment nearby.”
People suspect the 5G frequencies will cause problems having to do with oxygen. It was said by Joe Imbriano, an activist and researcher from Fullerton, California that when 5G reaches the frequency band of 60 GHz, the ability for a person’s blood hemoglobin to bind with oxygen will be damaged.
Researching his claims, they start to add up although it is difficult to confirm the thing about oxygen and hemoglobin. This article from an accredited website about radio frequencies called “Everything RF” is titled “Why is the 60 GHz Band not good for long-range communications?”
It reports that oxygen does in fact absorb 60 GHz frequencies at an extreme level, representing a spike of absorption ability, when you see how different frequencies on the millimeter spectrum interact with oxygen. However, the graph is talking about high altitudes and the atmosphere. One would assume 5G interacts with oxygen in a similar way at our altitude.
So Joe Imbriano was correct to say 60 GHz 5G will be absorbed by oxygen in an intense way.
Doesn’t that mean, just by common sense that the oxygen in our bodies, the oxygen we breathe and depend on would be saturated with 60 GHz frequencies? Doesn’t that mean our bodies will conduct the 5G like antennas?
Furthermore, wouldn’t our bodies acting as potent antennae for 60 GHz frequencies cause us all kinds of health problems? Where would we even escape to get away from them, if they saturate all major cities with this?
5G’s likely ill health effects can be divided into several categories.
An Israeli study led by Dr. Yuri D Feldman on 5G frequencies found that they cause human sweat ducts to behave strangely. The study reports that human sweat ducts act as an array of very small, helix-shaped antennas when exposed to millimeter waves. That implies the human body could be even more conductive of it.
A study on that particularly feared 5G frequency of 60 GHz, referenced by the Center for Public Integrity concluded that “more than 90% of the transmitted (MMWs) power is absorbed in the epidermis and dermis layer.” It’s not going to be good for the skin, it would appear.
A study from 1992 reported that frequencies in the higher 5G spectrum, ranging from 53-78GHz impacted the heart rate variability in rats. In other words, higher spectrum 5G could probably cause heart arrhythmia in humans. Another Russian study on frogs whose skin was exposed to these millimeter waves found that they cause heart arrhythmia.
In 1994, a study was carried out in Poland to determine whether or not millimeter radiation impacted the eye’s transmission of light through its lens. They found that low level millimeter wave radiation produced lens opacity in rats: associated with cataracts forming.
So 5G could cause human beings to develop eye problems and cataracts, it would seem. This one is difficult to find a copy of, although the academic citation for it can be found at “Chernyakov, GM and Korochkin, VL and Babenko, AP and Bigdai E. Reactions of biological systems of various complexity to the action of low-level EHF radiation No Title. Millim Waves Med Biol. 1989; 1: 141–167.”
In addition, a Japanese experiment was conducted to see whether or not the feared 60 GHz frequency band could cause ocular problems. It found that “millimeter-wave antennas can cause thermal injuries of varying types of levels. The thermal effects induced by millimeter waves can apparently penetrate below the surface of the eye.”
This one is also difficult to find, but can be found at the academic citation “Kojima M, Hanazawa M, Yamashiro Y, Sasaki H, Watanabe S, Taki M, Suzuki Y, Hirata A, Kamimura Y, Sasaki K. ACUTE OCULAR INJURIES CAUSED BY 60-GHZ MILLIMETER-WAVE EXPOSURE. Health Phys [Internet]. 2009 [cited 2018 Mar 19]; 97: 212–8. doi: 10.1097/HP.0b013e3181abaa57.”
A 2002 Russian study that set out to explore the effects of 42 GHz frequencies determined that when healthy mice were exposed to them, they had a drastic reduction of activity with cells involved with immunity: about 50%.
In other words, 42 GHz frequencies, close to the middle of the 5G spectrum, cause mice to suffer from immune system problems.
They concluded: “the whole-body exposure of healthy mice to low-intensity EHF EMR has a profound effect on the indices of nonspecific immunity.”
A detailed, complex looking but not impossible to understand study was published in 2010, about the very same frequencies Verizon is currently deploying: directly in the middle of the current Verizon 5G spectrum at 35 GHz.
The study was titled “Protein Changes in Macrophages Induced by Plasma From Rats Exposed to 35 GHz Milimeter Waves.” Guess what, it came from Texas based US Air Force Research Laboratories, and associated entities.
The study reads: “In agreement with this, prior studies conducted by our laboratory showed intravascular aggregation of leukocytes and upregulation of genes associated with immune cell recruitment and activation in the skin of rats at 6 and 24 h after exposure to 35 GHz MMWs at 75 mW/cm2until colonic temperature reached 41–428C [Millenbaugh et al., 2008]. Previous investigations also indicate that sustained MMW exposure can cause heating of internal tissues, presumably due to thermal conduction, and effects inperipheral blood cells and tissues distal to the initial siteof energy absorption.
A series of experiments performed in rats demonstrated that exposure to 35 GHz MMWs at 75 mW/cm2 for approximately 44–80 min produced elevations in skin and colonic temperatures and changes in heart rate, respiration rate, and blood pressure, with eventual circulatory collapse [Frei et al.,1995; Kalns et al., 2000; Millenbaugh et al., 2006].
In addition, increased levels of the oxidative stress marker, 3-nitrotyrosine (3-NT), were detected in peripheral blood lymphocytes and neutrophils of rats exposed to 35 GHz MMWs at 75 mW/cm2 for 44–60 min until body core temperature reached 41–428C [Kalns et al.,2000]. Based on these results, we hypothesized that 35 GHz MMWs can elicit the release of biologically active mediators into the systemic circulation leading todownstream responses in cells and tissues.The ability to elicit effects in immune cells has also been observed for other MMW frequencies”
So the exact frequencies Verizon just unleashed are known by even the US military, to cause an increase of proteins associated with inflammation, oxidative stress, and energy metabolism. Heating of internal tissues, that’s what the US military institutions admit 5G will cause.
This is quite solid cursory evidence that 5G will cause health problems.
Let’s back away from the research real quick and think about this with some common sense. We’re composed of water and oxygen, and we breathe oxygen. Oxygen is all around us. It shouldn’t take much more scientific information to suspect that frequencies known to be extremely interactive with oxygen would cause health problems in mammals, or even other life forms.
They bill it as being a revolution in technology, but those risks simply seem to outweigh the benefits.
According to GreenMedInfo, who published a very well sourced article about 5G, 180 scientists and doctors have called for a moratorium on 5G, understanding it will be hazardous to human health.
At this point, it doesn’t look like anyone is going to stop it. Now, all we can do is write articles like this, and hand them out to whoever cares on the street.
Sacramento is saturated with 5G now, and for the first three months people can use it for free: but nothing good is ever free.
