The 5G network is the newest connection technology on hype and is currently available in many regions in the United States, while slowly making its way to other regions that are still currently operating at the standard 3G and 4G network speed. The 5G network speed obviously seems like a significant improvement and a giant step for mankind in the field of telecommunications, however, there are essential details that may have been omitted while explaining how efficient and convenient this tech development would be. This concern is largely related to our health. What are the health risks and effects of the 5G network? Is the 5G network dangerous to health?
The term 5G is used to describe the 5th Generation of mobile networks in telecommunications, beyond the renowned 4G mobile network. The 5G network exists as a supporting network for the Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Even though the EPA and CDC initially confirmed the safety of the 5G network, the biological effects of the 5G are debatable and there are claims of health risks that are connected to the wireless technology in the long term.
The launch of the 5G network is massive, comprising of ground-based and space-based installments. There will be thousands of 5G transmission points which would permit significantly higher levels of electromagnetic force (EMF) than currently experienced. There are already numerous proofs of the harmful effects of radio frequencies even before the 5G wireless technology.
Possible health risks of 5G network
There are concerns about the possible increase in the rate of cancer. It is already a fact that the current overuse of mobile technology exposes one to cancer due to its accompanying radiation. Having 5G cell installments at various city points will greatly increase the risk of cancer as well as autoimmune responses. Other contending health issues connected to the 5G radiation includes:
- Reproductive impairments
- Damages to the DNA
- Alteration of the heart rhythm
- Chronic stress and fatigue
- Altered metabolism
- Cardiovascular problems
- Increased free radicals in the body
- Neurological issues
- Depression and increased anxiety
- Autoimmune disorder
- Altered stem cell development
- Risk of obesity and diabetes due to altered metabolism
- Cognitive impairment
These conditions can either be acute or chronic, depending on various factors such as age, closeness to radiation points, levels of exposure and others. Their problems are not just peculiar to humans alone but also to wildlife and the general environment as well as the microbial space.
How to reduce exposure to 5G radiation
The convenience of a fast WIFI and optimum signals can be really great however, safety is of utmost importance and the safety of lives should be the main priority even in the development of science. The best ways to reduce exposures to these harmful radio waves are:
- Reduce the amount of time spent on mobile devices
- Reduce the use of smart appliances which require this technology in order to function
- Purchase EMF blocking gears to reduce radiation absorbed in the body
- Ensure that the residential area is not located close to any transmission point
