Doctors call for delaying deployment of 5G due to health risks | NTD
5G-5th generation technology promises faster download speeds and conveniences that most of us have never dreamed of. But we'll also be blanketed with a new type of radiation called “millimeter waves.” Health experts are warning about the rising risks with a 5G rollout.
Frank Clegg Former President of Microsoft Canada: “It’s not been made clear to the public that 5G won’t just be another number and a letter on your cell phone. It requires an entirely new infrastructure of thousands of small cellular antennas to be erected throughout the cities where it’s going to be installed.”
What would 5G infrastructure look like? Small cell antennas could be placed as close as every 3rd hydro pole.
Scientists from 42 countries are now warning their governments about the emerging health problems associated with wireless radiation, and Canadian doctors and scientists have added their voices.
Dr. Riina Bray: “the most prevalent symptoms include headache, fatigue, decreased ability to concentrate, tinnitus, irritability, and insomnia. Impacts on the heart and nervous system are also of concern.”
Dr. Riina Bray has been working at the Provincial Environmental Health Clinic for 15 years, and seen the number of people suffering adverse effects from electromagnetic exposure rising.
Dr. Riina Bray: “we predict that the number of people who develop the symptoms I just mentioned will rise in the places where 5G is first installed.”
Dr. Magda Havas is internationally recognized for her research on the biological effects of electromagnetic pollution. She said that at high intensities these waves cause intense heat and pain because sweat glands on the surface of our skin act like mini antennas.
Dr. Magda Havas, professor and researcher: "at lower intensities scientists are predicting damage to eyes, loss of insect populations, which are already declining, antibiotic resistance in bacteria, and physiological effects on the nervous system and the immune system.”
Radiation from radio frequencies is classed in the same category of carcinogens as a lead.
One advisor to the World Health Organization said there's enough evidence that if they were to re-evaluate radio frequency radiation...
Dr. Anthony Miller: "it would be placed Class One, human carcinogen, the government could not possibly ignore that.”
Some say the scientific debate about the health effects of microwave radiation is over. But the question remains: Can we afford to take this risk?
Medical doctors are requesting delayed deployment until testing can be conducted on the long-term biological effects of 5G technology.
