Prof. Paul Ben Ishai  together with Tracey-Lee Dorny from South Africa explain how  radiofrequency energy and 5G can lead to numerous health and environmental issues in this recorded interview.

Communities are being told that it is necessary to build “small cell” towers in neighborhoods in order to offer 5G, a new technology that will connect the Internet of Things (IoT). At every level of government, new legislation aims to streamline (meaning force) the installation of these 5G “small cell” antennas in public rights-of-way.

5G will increase ambient levels of wireless radiofrequency radiation. Peer-reviewed research has demonstrated a myriad of adverse effects from wireless radiofrequency radiation including increased brain cancer, DNA damage, oxidative stress, immune dysfunction,  altered brain development, damaged reproduction, sleep changes, hyperactivity, and memory damage. (RESEARCH HERE)

Thousands of doctors and scientists are calling to halt 5G because of the increase in radiofrequency radiation- a new kind of environmental pollution. (DOCTORS & SCIENTISTS HERE, Read and download letter from Dr. Davis on the health and environmental effects of 5G)

Wireless companies warn investors of risks but neglect to inform consumers and neighbors living near towers.

Crown Castle (a company building small cell infrastructure throughout the USA) has a statement in their 2016 10-K Annual Report that says:

“If radio frequency emissions from wireless handsets or equipment on our wireless infrastructure are demonstrated to cause negative health effects, potential future claims could adversely affect our operations, costs, or revenues… We currently do not maintain any significant insurance with respect to these matters.”

Read the warnings from Wireless companies.

No one is monitoring radiation exposures from these cell installations and many cell towers are in violation of the radiation limits.

Although several countries have regular monitoring of wireless radiation limits, the US does not.  The Wall Street Journal did an investigative report in 2014 examining over 5,000 cell antennas sites and found that 1 in 10 sites violated the rules during safety audits for carriers and local municipalities “underscoring a safety lapse,” yet the FCC has issued just two citations to cell carriers since 1996 because “the FCC says it lacks resources to monitor each antenna.” A CBS Atlanta investigation also found radiation excesses up to 400 percent of the limit close up to the antennas on rooftop posing serious health risks especially to any worker coming on the roof.

The American Academy of Pediatrics is one of many medical organizations calling to reduce children’s exposure.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), our largest organization of children’s doctors, has repeatedly written to the US  government that current regulations on cellular radiation are outdated and non-protective for children and pregnant women. They recommend parents learn how to reduce children’s cell phone radiation exposure.

The American Academy of Pediatrics webpage on Cell Towers states:

“An Egyptian study confirmed concerns that living nearby mobile phone base stations increased the risk of developing:

  • Headaches
  • Memory problems
  • Dizziness
  • Depression
  • Sleep problems”

5G’s higher frequencies are absorbed into the skin.

Physicists found that the higher millimeter frequencies intended for 5G use are preferentially absorbed into the sweat duct at much higher rates than other organ tissues. Read two published studies “The Modeling of the Absorbance of the Sub-THz Radiation by Human Skin.” The human skin as a sub-THz receiver – Does 5G pose a danger to it or not? Paul Ben-Ishai, PhD Lecture. 

Cumulative daily radiation exposure to wireless radiation is associated with serious health effects.

5G and 4G cell towers near our homes means constant exposure day and night. You cannot turn a cell tower off.

The public is unaware that peer-reviewed, published science indicates that exposures to wireless radiation can cause cancer,  alter brain development, and damage sperm. Cell tower radiation is also associated with headaches, hormone changes, memory problems, and sleep problems.

A review paper on 5G published in Environmental Research concludes that the current scientific evidence supports the conclusion that mobile phone and wireless radiofrequency radiation (RFR) is cancer-causing. Most people are also unaware that wireless technology was never tested for long-term safety decades ago when the technology was first introduced. Children are more vulnerable to this radiation and that the accumulated scientific evidence shows harmful effects.

Many countries have more protective cell tower radiation limits compared to the USA.

Countries such as China, India, Poland, Russia, Italy, and Switzerland have far more protective and stricter radiation limits than do we in the United States. According to industry reports, these countries’ more protective radiation limits will not allow the full deployment of 5G because the increased 5G radiation would exceed these governments allowable levels of radiation. The Report “The impact of RF-EMF exposure limits stricter than the ICNIRP or IEEE guidelines on 4G and 5G mobile network deployment” reviews how 5G deployment is “constrained” by these countries’ limits. In addition, these stricter exposure limits are also considered problematic for the full rollout of 4G LTE.  as detailed in a GSMA report.
