Are 5G Towers Really More Dangerous?

[Electric Sense]Are 5G towers more dangerous than the previous cell towers? What can we do? In this guest post, Lois Cadwallader explores the dangers and what we can do individually and collectively to protect ourselves.
Are 5G towers more dangerous than what? 2G? 3G? 4G?
Since the shelf life of 2G has pretty much expired, and there is already a phase-out program for 3G, so we’ll limit this discussion to 4G and 5G cell towers.
Just so that we understand what we are talking about, the “tower” is the structure upon which the antennas are attached. The antennas that transmit and receive are the real culprit here. But cell tower is the popular term, so I’ll go with that.
Why are cell tower antennas the real culprit?
Because they receive and transmit a form of electromagnetic field called radio frequency radiation or microwave radiation.
Thousands of studies link radio frequency radiation of the type emitted by cell towers to many serious and chronic diseases including:
  • cancer (see article on cell tower radiation cancer link)
  • brain tumors
  • chronic fatigue
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • breast cancer
  • depression
  • various childhood cancers
  • depression
  • autism
  • heart disease
  • infertility
  • miscarriage and suicide
  • and more….
The World Health Organization has classified cell tower type radiation exposures as a ‘possible Class 2B carcinogen’.
In many ways cell towers are an invisible danger—despite literally towering over some neighborhoods it’s as if many people don’t see them.
But neither 4G nor 5G cell towers have been proven safe and there have been no long-term studies on any of this technology.
Yet, there are specific reasons for heightened concern over 5G towers because some of the technology involved is quite different from the previous generation. Read More
