The Dangers of 5G to Children’s Health

[SkyVision Solutions Editor’s Note:  Smart Grid Awareness primarily discusses health and security risks related to implementation of costly electric grid modernization efforts.  Even more risky will be implementation of so-called 5G technology, which in theory would eventually include utility smart meters and every Internet-enabled device on the planet.]

By the Children’s Health Defense Team

Mobile and wireless technologies are a ubiquitous feature of modern life.  Most U.S. adults own smartphones, a growing proportion are “smartphone-only” Internet users and over a fourth report being online “almost constantly.”  As for children, a 2014 survey of high-income nations reported that almost seven in ten children used a mobile phone, and two-thirds of those had a smartphone, usually by age 10.  As described by Nielsen, it is now as common to see “a kid with a smartphone in their hand” as it was to see “a kid playing with a yo-yo in the years before the digital age.”

The enthusiasm with which the public has embraced each new mobile and wireless technology—most of which have never undergone any appropriate safety testing or standards development—suggests that consumers rarely stop to consider the health implications of the infrastructure shoring up their ability to browse, stream and download anytime and “on the go.”  Consumers are not entirely to blame for their lack of awareness—it is not easy to disentangle the technologies’ health risks in the face of the telecommunications industry’s steady and calculated disinformation efforts and a captured Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that “follows the script of fabulously wealthy, bullying, billion-dollar beneficiaries of wireless.”

“… powerful 5G (fifth-generation) networks and technology are about to subject everyone, on a continuous basis, to unprecedented forms and amounts of mandatory irradiation—without prior study of the potential health impact or any assurance of safety.

Now, however, a global 5G “frenzy” is upon us and is coming into full force.  The rollout of “blazing fast” 5G technology will “dramatically increase the number of transmitters sending signals to cellphones and a host of new Internet-enabled devices.”  The time is ripe for greater grassroots awareness of the undisclosed tradeoffs between convenience and 5G’s potentially catastrophic health effects.  Far from a simple “next-gen” upgrade, powerful 5G (fifth-generation) networks and technology are about to subject everyone, on a continuous basis, to unprecedented forms and amounts of what retired U.S. government physicist Dr. Ronald Powell calls “mandatory irradiation”—without “prior study of the potential health impact” or any assurance of safety.  Considering that young people (with their smaller body mass and developing brains) are particularly vulnerable to radiation, the Environmental Health Trust has termed 5G “the next great unknown experiment on our children”—and the entire human population.

The town facing a ‘humanitarian crisis caused by the radiation from state-of-the-art street lamps’: Residents have endured insomnia, nose bleeds and even stillbirths, one local claims

Note, I and some of our readers have been watching these lamps here in NZ. They came & changed all the bulbs very recently in the Horowhenua, and I heard Whanganui as well. Have heard reports of kids being ill following that in Whanganui at least. I have heard also that some of them have cameras. These are lamps featured in the smart city (agenda 21) models & will link to the incoming 5G.  Supposed to assist with traffic flow, parking etc among other things. That’s the ostensible rationale for their existence. Locally, feedback suggests it is control of dimming & brightening the lights. They are certainly now way brighter. Watch out for them in your neighbourhood.

From dailymail.co.uk

  • Mark Steele is aware of three women who lost babies since lights were installed
  • One local resident gave birth to a deformed child that survived just three hours
  • Research suggests light transmitters prevent healthy cell and gene expression
  • Such radiation has been linked to cancer, insomnia and mental-health disorders
  • Past research found Wi-Fi radiation increases the risk of miscarriages by 50% 
  • Gateshead council firmly denies ever having used 5G technology in lighting

Radiation given off by state-of-the-art street lamps is wreaking havoc on the residents of Gateshead, according to local Mark Steele.

He said people living in the area are experiencing symptoms of insomnia, nose bleeds and several women have even endured the horror of stillbirths since the introduction of LED lamps that he believes emit 5G radiation.

In his circle alone, Mr Steele, 58, is aware of three women have lost their children since the lights were installed in September 2016, with one giving birth to a deformed child that survived just three hours.

Mr Steele, who was part of the IEEE, which claims to be ‘the world’s largest technical professional organisation dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity’, said: ‘We are seeing babies dying in the womb as these transmitters are situated outside people’s bedroom windows. It’s a humanitarian crisis.’

Earlier this week Gateshead council put out a Facebook post encouraging people to ignore ‘conspiracy theories’ about the dangers of 5G radiation, adding ‘there is no scientific basis or credible evidence for any of these scare stories’.

In a Facebook post yesterday, Gateshead Council dismissed concerns over the borough's street lights as 'entirely false conspiracy theories' with 'no scientific basis or credible evidence'

In a Facebook post yesterday, Gateshead Council dismissed concerns over the borough’s street lights as ‘entirely false conspiracy theories’ with ‘no scientific basis or credible evidence’

According to Professor Ulrich Warnke, from the University of Saarland, EMF radiation, which is given out by light transmitters, causes disruption to the body’s nitrogen monoxide system, which keeps cells healthy and controls gene expression.

The European Academy for Environmental Medicine (EUROPAEM) – EMF working group notes such radiation has been linked to cancer, insomnia and mental-health disorders.

UK telecoms regulator Ofcom reportedly plans to launch 5G services, such as lamps and cell towers, throughout Britain by 2020. There are rumours Gateshead is taking part in a ‘secret Government trial’ by rolling out the technology in the borough before then.

‘Such miscarriages didn’t occur before the lamps appeared’ 

Mr Steele said: ‘We’ve got people bleeding from the nose in my locality.

‘We’ve got people who can’t sleep from neurological disorders.

‘What about the poor women across Gatehead who are losing babies at nearly full term?

‘What about the children who will develop cancer from this 5G roll out?’

‘Microwave radiation increases miscarriages. These didn’t occur before the lamps appeared.’

Mr Steele claims EMF’s damaging effects are evident in the loss of wildlife from his local area.

While driving around Gateshead, which Mr Steele claims has more than 37,000 EMF-emitting lamps, he said: ‘[There are] no small birds in [the] surrounding trees.

‘The sparrows have been annihilated; they’ve wiped out the flying insects.’

Gateshead Council denies ‘completely false’ claims 

In a Facebook post, which has been shared more than 1,200 times, Gateshead Council announced yesterday: ‘Street lights will not induce miscarriages in pregnant women, or cause insomnia, or nosebleeds, and they are not killing all the birds and insects.’

The post adds the borough is not taking part in ‘secret Government trials’ before 5G is rolled out nationwide.

It adds the council has been advised by Public Health England, which reviewed guidance issued by bodies including the World Health Organization, and confirmed the technology carries no health risks.

The post urges people share the statement with those ‘badly frightened’ by the claims and ends with ‘the more people who understand that they are completely false, the better’.

Despite Gateshead council’s claim that they are not using 5G, Mr Steele said: ‘The transmitter operates at 868 – 870 MHz. That is a specific 5G spectrum.

‘The increase in transmitters even if they did operate at 2G – 3G, as the council have stated, would make them 5G’.

Does science support EMF’s risks? 

Previous studies have linked such radiation to ‘internal stress’, which may lead to genetic damage that can cause expectant mothers to miscarry.

Those exposed to the highest levels of EMF radiation are 48 per cent more likely to lose their baby than women exposed to the lowest amounts, according to a 2017 study by the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends MF radiation, to which everyone is exposed to to some extent, be studied for its effect on pregnancies.

The WHO classifies EMF as a ‘possible human carcinogen’ but does not consider electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) a condition. EHS is a claimed sensitivity to EMF, leading to headache, fatigue and stress.

Commenting on the matter, The Parliamentary Assembly from the Council of Europe, said: ‘Waiting for high levels of scientific and clinical proof before taking action to prevent well-known risks can lead to very high health and economic costs, as was the case with asbestos, leaded petrol and tobacco.’

What is being done about it? 

Researchers from a network known as EMF Scientists, which includes doctors from the University of Columbia, are appealing to the UN to encourage the WHO to develop stricter EMF guidelines, while also educating the public on the risks.

In January 2015, the French parliament adopted a comprehensive law that protects the general public from excessive exposure to electromagnetic waves.

Among other things, the legislation has banned Wi-Fi in nurseries for children under three years old. It also requires primary schools teaching children under 11 to only turn Wi-Fi on when it is being used for specific lessons.

As of February 2016, 220 scientists from 42 countries have signed an international Appeal, directed to the UN and WHO, calling for protection from EMF exposure.

According to EUROPAEM, the only treatment for EMF-related illnesses is to eliminate or reduce the radiation source.
