Hellbent on being the first U.S. carrier to debut the 5G mobile network
and matching smartphones, telecommunications giant Sprint is racing to
roll out this new 5G technology – this year! But, many people are
waking up to the health threats posed by this wireless technology.
carrier recently proclaimed that six US cities – Atlanta,
Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles and Washington, DC. – are “ready for
5G.” But, in its headlong rush to roll out 5G, Sprint seems only too
happy to ignore the prospect of increased EMF radiation – and the health
risks that will accompany it.
new 5G (fifth-generation) wireless networks are billed as featuring
substantial increases in data speed and capacity, in order to enable
further connection with the “Internet of Things” – a linked system of cell
phones, laptops, home appliances, security systems, cars and drones. But,
while Sprint touts “new levels of innovation and progress,” natural health
experts warn that the technology could expose us to new levels of unwanted

is debuting an advanced network technology called Massive MIMO (Large-Scale
Antenna Systems), which will power Sprint’s Gigabit LTE. Massive
MIMO will facilitate high-bandwidth applications – with Sprint boasting
that its sites are capable of delivering up to 10 times the capacity of
existing LTE systems.
customers will be able to access Massive MIMO using a 2.5 GHz band.
And, Sprint says it plans to deploy “thousands” of Massive MIMO
radios in 2019, increasing network capacity across the country.
carrier says that customers in Chicago, Dallas and Los Angeles will soon
begin experiencing 5g-like capabilities – with Atlanta, Houston and
Washington DC next in line.
course, implementing the 5G wireless technology involves adding
thousands of new cell sites to expand coverage and “densifying” the
network with more small cells to increase capacity and speed.
microwave radiation from EMFs is likely to increase exponentially,
not everyone is on board with the advent of 5G – and the hectic speed with
which it is being implemented.

5G will put our current wireless systems “on steroids”
May, Michigan state senator Patrick Colbeck (R-Canton) took to the Senate
floor to urge his colleagues to vote against a pair of bills (SR 637 and
SR 894) that would smooth the way for 5G wireless technology.
Colbeck testified that he had “serious concerns” about the potential
health risks of high-frequency wireless transmitters, cell phones, smart
meters and WiFi routers.
out that wireless radiation has been associated with cancer, neurological
problems and reproductive damage, Colbeck added that young and unborn
children are at particular risk.
to his concerns is the fact that 5g networks operate in the 24 to 90 GHz
spectrum – meaning they will utilize higher frequencies than those ever
used (or tested!) before. In fact, Colbeck says, 5G will require one
transmitter for every two to ten homes – creating an unprecedented
concentration of these devices.
Colbeck is no fearful technophobe. A former aerospace engineer, he
describes himself as an “early adopter” of new technologies.
he believes the potential risks of 5G wireless radiation are too
serious to ignore. Noting that the public health and welfare of people
must come before economics and technology, Colbeck called for an
evaluation of the health impact of 5G wireless systems.

Despite Colbeck’s testimony, the bills passed in the state Senate. They
are now headed to the House floor – where passage is expected).
confirm: Microwave radiation can damage our DNA
radiation from wireless networks has been linked to damage to fragile cell
DNA, and to damage the mitochondria – the “energy centers” of the
cells. Research has shown that radiation from wireless systems is
associated with cognitive problems, impaired fertility and cancers of the
breast, prostate, liver, lungs and skin.
bombshell 2015 study found that exposure to 3G radiation – at amounts
well below mandated limits for cell phone users – promoted the formation
of brain tumors in animals.
heart patients should be aware of the truth.
experts warn that frequencies from ‘smart’ meters can affect
myocardial function, causing irregularities that can overwork the heart
and result in fatigued cardiac function.
addition, “microwave sickness” is a real and present danger for
millions of people. Also known as electromagnetic hypersensitivity,
microwave sickness syndrome is already an acknowledged disorder.
WHO reports that 3.5 to 5 percent of the population already suffers from
the condition, in which susceptible individuals experience a wide range of
symptoms – including headache, fatigue, depression, nausea, dizziness and
sleep disorders – when in close proximity to cell phone towers, WIFI
routers and satellite TV antennas.
increased radiation from the advent of 5G systems is virtually guaranteed
to exacerbate their suffering, and to increase the number of individuals

possible, opt for old-fashioned (wired) telephone lines over cell
phones. And, when cell phone use is unavoidable, try holding it at
least an inch away from your head – and utilize speakerphone mode,
hands-free headsets or earphones.
addition, keep cell phone calls brief, text rather than call whenever
possible (or – better yet – use your landline).

noted geneticist Dr. Mae-Wan Ho famously spoke of the modern phenomenon of
being immersed in a “sea of microwaves.” The time to prevent that sea from
rising any further is now.
