What is 5G?
5G stands for fifth generation mobile phone services. 5G will not only utilize current 3G and 4G wireless frequencies already in use but also add higher frequency — submillimeter and millimeter waves — in order to transmit more data. (Source)
This new mobile network will require millions of small cell antennas to be placed on lampposts and utility poles approximately every 100 m or 6 – 10 houses. This will result in involuntary exposure to wireless radiation for everyone 24/7, whether you use the service or not.
Wireless antennas emit microwaves — non-ionizing radiofrequency (RF) radiation — and essentially function as cell towers. Each small cell can have over a thousand antennas that are transmitting simultaneously.
Peer reviewed, published science indicates that cumulative daily RF radiation exposure can increase cancer risk, alter brain development, damage DNA, and damage sperm. Most people are unaware that wireless technology was never tested for long-term safety, that children are more vulnerable and that the accumulated scientific evidence indicates harm.
Meanwhile, large telecom companies like Bell, Rogers, and Telus are rushing to install new “small cell antennas” – the foundation for 5G – as quickly as possible.
There is no scientific evidence to support any claim of safety for 5G.
You have the right to know if this technology is safe before it is installed where you live.
What do Experts Say?
The World Health Organization (WHO) classified wireless radiation as being possibly carcinogenic in 2011, putting it in the same category as lead and DDT. A recent ten-year, $30-million dollar government study by the U.S. National Toxicology Program showed “clear evidence” of an increased risk of cancer from exposure to wireless radiation. The NTP study and several others since 2011 warrant an upgrade from potentially carcinogenic to “carcinogenic to humans”.
Miller, A.B., Environmental Research, 2018
"We recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation, 5G, for telecommunication until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry...[Radiofrequency radiation] has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment."
