With the rate technology is changing, I think we should take this opportunity to not only look at the benefits of 5G network but any possible effects as well. We all know the internet needed in our society today. It's hard to imagine life without it. Just when we think it is as powerful as it can be, we find out we haven't even come close to what technology is capable of. What are the dangers of 5G network and what can we do to protect ourselves?
Take the internet for example…
We are currently using 4G (4th generation) wireless network with speeds 10x faster than our previous network. 4G speeds have opened the door for amazing new technology and convenience. We have been using 4G since 2010.
Back then, faster broadbands were a major concern because that equaled more exposure to radiation. This was said to have negative effects on your health .
Ready or not! It's coming and soon ...
The idea of having data speeds up to 100x faster than we currently have sounded amazing! Especially for those of us who remember dial-up internet.
5G has been tested by entrepreneurs who developed tools that will run specifically with its service.
5G opens up many possibilities for our future generation but at what cost?
This next generation of wireless technology and the internet is possibly coming with a high price and I do not mean financially…
I'm referring to the health risk we could see from such powerful radiation. Consumers from all over the world are concerned with the rollout of 5G service.
Do you remember what I mentioned previously in this article about 4G?
Higher risk of health concerns…
In a matter of just a few months, we will have 5G radiation everywhere! We will be exposed even if we are not using it.
In order for 5G to happen, small cell stations will be placed in our neighborhoods, on buildings, streets and light poles.
5G cell towers are more dangerous than other cell towers for two main reasons. First, compared to earlier versions, 5G is ultra high frequency and ultra high intensity. Second, since the shorter length millimeter waves (MMV) used in 5G do not travel as far (or through objects), with our current number of cell towers the cell signal will not be reliable. To compensate many more mini cell towers must be installed. It is estimated that they will need a mini cell tower every 2 to 8 houses. This will greatly increase our RF Radiation exposure.
According to studies, scientist, government officials and medical professionals, the effects of 5G hasn't been effectively tested and researched, so we don't know the extent of this next-generation technology.
Old School Telecommunications Act
In 1996, the telecommunications act was passed and just celebrated its 23rd birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAW THAT ISN'T EVEN RELEVANT TODAY!
To read the telecommunications act click the link below, https://www.fcc.gov/general/telecommunications-act-1996
In a nutshell, the telecommunications act says, regardless of health effects 5G may have on us, we can't stop it from happening.
It's about time the telecommunications act gets a little update.
The internet was very different in 1996: Amazon.com was barely a year old and was just an online bookstore. Larry Page and Sergey Brin were still graduate students at Stanford working on a project that would become Google. Mark Zuckerberg was 12 years old and in junior high school.
Are we a part of a “dangerous experiment on humanity” or are these allegations people are so concerned with bogus and “in our heads”?
I guess we will have to ride it out and see what happens because 5G is happening.
Another big concern is Wifi. Wifi is practically in every home and business.
The problem with WiFi router is that they blast at their highest power all of the time 24/7.
Numerous studies have linked Radiation to some major health issues. Cancer is the most commonly mentioned. Radiation is also linked to DNA damage , especially in fetuses, and sterility in men.
UGH! But what can we do? We need it! We have to have it!
What can we do?
Our main mission here at Optimized Life is helping people take control over their health . In this case, other people seem to have control. However, there are ways we can do something to help ourselves and our family.
The truth is, we need Wifi, the internet, and the latest technology. It's hard in today's world to get away from using it.
I appreciate technology. I use it personally and will continue to use it.
My only debate is that we deserve to be informed and this technology should be properly and effectively tested before exposing us to the possibilities of negative effects. The public should be aware of ALL aspects, not just the positive ones.
- Set your wifi router to turn off while you are asleep. In our home, ours automatically turns off between the hours of 10 pm-8 am.
- Hands-free talking - Keep your phone away from your face and your body.
- Moderation - Only use it when you need it. When you do not need it, turn it off. Radiation can not be emitted when phones off.
- Invest in WIFI protection - This is a good idea to do for all of the reasons talked about in this article. We do not know what the full outcome will be on our health but we can do our part to make sure we are protected as much as possible. There are a few different products on the market that can help you protect yourself and your family against harmful radiation.
