5G, the fifth generation of wireless technology. What makes it better than 4G LTE, do we really need 5G, and what about the health risks of this new technology?
4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) has been the upgraded version of 4G for a while now, 4G LTE was pretty much the first "version" of 5G. 4G LTE offers faster speeds and better security than 4G.
Per PCMag, 5G's networks will consist of small cells and could be as small as home routers. According to that article, 5G networks should not consist of large towers. The idea is, the more cells you have the more data you can get on the network.
What's worse, large cell towers here and there, or a small area with multiple cells closer to each other?
AT&T claims they're going to be the first ones to really implement this technology and offer it to their customers. According to PCMag, they believe AT&T will roll out 5G using millimeter wave technology, which can't reach very far, but is highly effective at the distances it can reach. This is why 5G networks will be placed closed to each other, and to be extremely effective and efficient, there will have to be a lot of these small cell networks around.
According to Newsmax, 5G networks will be put onto street lights, buildings, signs, pretty much anywhere possible. There still needs to be infrastructure to support all of this, but that's only half the battle of implementing 5G. ISPs like AT&T have to go not only the states, but the counties and cities, they plan to implement 5G in.
It's like fiber networks, you need to obtain approval from not just the feds and the states, but localities too.
So, how do you feel about small cell 5G networks being placed literally all over town? That's the plan here. There will no doubt be a spike in radiation in the areas where they'll implement these networks, that's just a given. If you have so many of these small cell networks in one area, radiation will increase due to the concentration of these small cell networks.
The industry wants to put this technology everywhere; from homes, to cars, to offices, to schools, to beaches, everywhere. The FCC certainly isn't standing in the way.
The Los Angeles Times ran a story on the health hazards of 5G technology. In that story, they said male rats had a slight increase of tumor growths. These rats were involved in a long term high radiation test, but it shows the risks are there. 5G will expose humans to a significant increase in radiation, especially if it's implemented in every setting of human life, like the industry plans.
In that same Los Angeles Times article, Leeka Kheifets, a epidemiology professor at UCLA, said "I don't think it's clear that there are health risks, but it's also not clear that there are no health risks."
Honestly, 5G could have been designed better, and to be honest, there isn't anything wrong with 4G LTE. 4G LTE is fast enough, the only real perk of 5G is you'll be able to use more data at a slightly faster speed than 4G LTE. Ask yourself, do you really need that? Wireless connection speed is pretty darn fast as it is.
Also, with these small cell networks everywhere, it can greatly increase the risk of cyber attacks and hacking. A bad actor could take out an entire city's network by hacking into or taking out a group of these small cell networks, and they way there are to be implemented, it won't take as much effort as a 4G network.
Alex Jones has been very passionate about noting the health hazards and other risks associated with 5G networks. He has been long time friends with Dr. Edward Group. Group founded the Global Healing Center. Group himself is warning about 5G technology, and Alex had him on Infowars to talk about it:
Infowars has really been leading the charge on warning about the health risks associated with 5G networks. Dr. Group is also on board with Alex and Infowars on the potential health risks of 5G. This isn't some wacky conspiracy folks, it's real.
Here is another Infowars report on 5G health risks, this time by Le Ann McAdoo:
Sadly, the wireless industry is too far invested in this 5G technology for it be stopped or reconsidered. The industry wants it, the government wants it, businesses want it, but do average citizens want it? It doesn't seem to be widely talked about by regular folks, that's for sure.
Hopefully the wireless industry and government recognizes these health risks and does reconsider the technology it self, but don't hold your breath on it. Big cities and the government will get it first, the rural areas will be the last to get it more than likely. Businesses, cars, and planes though? No matter where you live, this technology will find you.
