While telecom companies are moving full speed ahead to put up millions of small cell towers for their new 5G (fifth generation) cellular communication system in the United States, the public is waking up to the fact that 5G has not been proven safe for human health.
The health concerns actually go far beyond the 5G cell towers that are being placed approximately every 500 feet on the streets of America’s urban areas. It has now been revealed that 20,000 satellites will be soon put into orbit around the Earth to broadcast 5G microwave radiation over every square foot of ground on our planet.
As has been discussed in my previous articles about the 5G cellular microwave communication system, it will be much faster than the current 3G and 4G systems. However, it will use a much higher frequency range in the electromagnetic energy spectrum. These frequencies in the gigahertz spectrum have not been used for public communication. And these millimeter frequencies have not been tested for safety.
5G Phased Array Antennas will Shoot Beams of Radiation at People and Equipment
The 5G communication system will use phased array antennas, which will shoot beams of microwaves at 5G phones and other equipment containing 5G capabilities such as new computers, automobiles, and Wi-Fi hubs.
The beams of microwave radiation will follow a person who is holding a 5G phone or who is moving with one of these phones on his or her body. These beams of radiation have to be strong enough to penetrate walls and human flesh such as hands and heads, because you won’t know the direction from which the microwave beam is coming.
The beams of non-ionizing microwave radiation used by this technology also have to be strong enough to pass through the bodies of other people who might happen to walk between a person using a phone and the tower that is beaming the microwave signal at them.
5G smartphones will broadcast and receive microwave signals that are 10 times stronger than the current 4G smartphones. Wi-Fi systems using 5G will use microwave signals that are 150 times stronger than a 4G phone.
Don’t Worry – the FCC Says it’s Safe
Despite the lack of testing to prove that 5G is safe, telecom companies and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) are in agreement that no one should worry about health effects of 5G.
Their advice to the American public is based on assumptions that were made in 1998.
But, the research at that time was questionable because it only examined health concerns related to the heating effect of the microwave radiation.
Background on 5G and other Radio Frequency Health Risks
This article will look at some of the newest information about microwave radiation risks and the concerns that are being raised by those who have been studying this form of non-ionizing radiation.
For those who are new to this topic, you may wish to read some of my previous articles about health concerns related to radio frequency pollution to obtain background information about 5G and other wireless communication systems such as Wi-Fi.

Radiation from 2G and 3G Cellular Systems is Associated with Cancer in Male Rats
In a ten-year study of rats and mice conducted by the National Toxicology Project (NTP), government scientists in collaboration with non-government scientists concluded that there is “clear evidence” of an association between microwave radiation exposure from what is known as the second generation (2G) and third-generation (3G) cell phone systems and the formation of cancer in the hearts of male rats.
2G and 3G are still being used for cell phone voice calls and text messaging.
NTP scientists use a four-level rating system for describing the degree of association between exposure and harm to health. Their rating system indicates clear evidence (highest association with harm), some evidence, equivocal evidence, and no evidence of association (lowest).
Their November 2018 final report found that there was clear association between exposure to 2G and 3G microwave frequency radiation with the formation of cancer in rats.
These government scientists won’t say that radiation from 2G and 3G cellular technology “causes” cancer in rats or in humans.
To those of us on the outside of scientific laboratories, it sure looks like exposure causes cancer and numerous other serious illnesses. (See my previous articles for details.)
I base my conclusion on thousands of research articles that have been published over the last several decades and the conclusions reached by hundreds of physicians and scientists, which clearly show serious risk to human beings when we are exposed to non-ionizing radiation from cellular systems.
When the NTP began their study 10 years ago, 5G did not exist. Thus, NTP scientists made it very clear in their report published in November of 2018 that their findings say nothing about the safety or risks of 5G or Wi-Fi systems.
So, here we are at the end of 2018 with 5G radio frequency radiation systems being installed in many cities across America, and no one has studied the safety of this new technology.
If there is clear evidence that microwave radiation exposure from 2G and 3G is associated with rat cancer, then this should be a bright red flag that should alert us to the potential risk from the newest 5G cellular system.
I must wonder if we will have to wait ten more years while government scientists study 5G and Wi-Fi before they conclude that there is clear evidence of risk from these systems. Based on the potential of microwave radiation in 2G and 3G systems to cause harm, there is no reason to assume that the millimeter microwave radiation used in 5G will be safe.
