What is 5G and how does
this technology affect me?
This will be an experiment that
will affect billions of people.
To start, be careful not to confuse 5G Fifth Generation Technology with the 5Gigahertz (GHz) frequencies used in wireless devices. Some devices state they are 5G, but at this point in time it is meant to be 5GHz frequency of transmission. 5G technology uses much higher frequencies (10-300GHZ) and is still in planning stages. See also What’s the Difference Between 5G and 5GHz Wi-Fi?.
5G technology is different than prior 2G, 3G or 4G technology in the following ways:
Frequencies: 4G uses several different frequencies from 750MHz to about 2,400-5,000 MHz(2.4 GHz to 5 GHz- typical Wi Fi and cell phone)- 5G (proposed 5th generation) uses10GHz to 300GHz
Wavelengths: 4G electromagnetic wavelengths are inches to feet long, 5G frequencies are in centimeters to millimeters
Depth of Skin and Body Absorption: 4G microwave radiation (2.4GHz and 5 GHz) passes through bodies and the energy is absorbed by anything that contains water (can’t cook dry rice in a microwave oven) while 5G (5th Generation) penetrates only the outer layers of the skin in humans
Distance Radiation Travels: 4G can travel dozens of miles in a line of sight and if poles are placed high. In experiments 5G can travel a few miles but is easily blocked by objects, trees and plants thus poles are planned for every 300 feet in “Smart Cities”..
Mechanisms of Harm: 4G emissions can cause oxidation of tissues (93 of 100 studies), 5G radiation can have its effect through heat (tissue destruction), and at low power levels through signaling of skin structures that can affect metabolism, the nervous system, the endocrine system, the reproductive system (declassified military studies).
Amount of Testing Done: 4G technology has been tested by the military and by international scientists with an abundance of studies showing broad harm to animals, humans, plants, insects. 5G technology has been studied by some in the military showing broad harm and some newer studies are showing damage to insects, tissue burns and overheating with streaming of data, but there has been no safety testing of 5G before it is rolled out.
