Faster 5G wireless networks are here. And that’s going to be great for our communications needs and the economy. But: “Will you be willing to risk your life in order to have better connections and faster speeds?”
That question comes from a U.S. article entitled, “Hundreds Of Respected Scientists Sound The Alarm About Health Effects As 5G Networks Go Up Nationwide.”
According to the article the thrust of the scare is that: (1) we are “constantly being bombarded” by electromagnetic radiation that “is not good for us”; (2) 5G towers will be so powerful and close together “it will essentially be like living in a closed radiation chamber 24 hours a day”; (3) “our bodies are essentially magnets for 5G radiation”; and (4) some male rats exposed to a different type of radiofrequency radiation had an increased rate of heart tumours…
Well, 5G devices are much less intense than microwave ovens and the worst thing a microwave oven could to do you (if you were inside one) would be to boil you away. All that need be said is that if you notice your skin bubbling while talking on your 5G device, turn it off.
