The Introduction of 5G and the rising EMF problems.


Recent Google searches tell me that 5G testing in Australia has already taken place in Melbourne and Sydney and will be trialled over the two weeks that the Commonwealth Games are taking place on the Gold Coast in 2018.

Personally, I am already planning my getaway from the coast during that time – partly for traffic reasons and partly for the 5G testing. I believe that the testing phase is when we would feel/be impacted by the effects of these unstable frequencies the most.

“it turns out that most living things are fantastically sensitive to vanishingly small EMF exposures. The problem is man-made electromagnetic exposures aren’t normal”. – B.Blake Levitt, award-winning journalist and editor of Cell Towers: Wireless Convenience? Or Environmental Hazard?

It is estimated that Electrohypersensitivity (EHS) is a much more common problem that people realise and many are still oblivious to the source of their problems. For 8 million Australians who are mild to moderate EHS and the 0.7% who are severely EHS (of which I am one) the problem is extensive as we in the western world are drowning in these waves. The US is slowly starting to recognise EHS, as is Europe and Russia has gone as far as building shielded rooms in hospitals for EHS patients. Most cases of EHS go undiagnosed, however, as EHS has not officially been awarded a ‘medical diagnosis’ status. Therefore, most cases are simply ignored or medical personnel simply does not know what to do about it as they are not receiving training to deal with these issues.

If it is not medically recognised, does it mean it is all in people’s heads? Definitely not. Even Apple says of its iPhone 6: “To reduce exposure to RF energy, use a hands-free option, such as the built-in speakerphone, the supplied headphones, or other similar accessories. Carry iPhone at least 5mm away from your body to ensure exposure levels remain, at or below the as-tested levels. Cases with metal parts may change the RF performance of the device, including its compliance with RF exposure guidelines, in a manner that has not been tested or certified.”

So, Apple is advising that we don’t carry an iPhone in our pocket or touching your skin or holding the phone against your ear – especially not in your bra.

“Delay is the deadliest form of denial.” – C. Northcote Parkinson

Over the past twenty years, major insurance underwriters Lloyd’s of London and Swiss Re, have refused to cover industry for health damages from smart meters, mobile phones and other wireless devices. Zurich Financial Services excludes liability related to EMFs under its general insurance policy for corporate liability. (1)

In Australia, risks of dangers from EMF is classified as an ‘emergent risk’ - a category that was once used by asbestos, lead, DDT and chloroform.

Interestingly in 2013, CSIRO worker, Dr Alexander McDonald was awarded financial compensation for his disability caused by wireless signal tests. Even though EHS is not a recognised ‘medical condition’ here in Australia, the Administrative Appeals Tribunal of Australia approved his compensation due to EHS.

Very telling for times to come.


Thermal effects can be measured to determine how much damage can occur to cells on exposure to EMF fields. However, what is often overlooked or simply not recognised, are the non-thermal effects.

Many scientists have found numerous non-thermal, biological effects from using mobile phones:

  1. After twenty minutes of use, double strands of DNA break into fragments. If the body’s repair systems can’t keep up with these breaks, cancer and birth defects can result.
  2. Cancer rates increase, especially when people begin using mobile phones as children and when anyone uses one for thirty minutes or more per day. The risk of tumours also increases significantly with over ten years of cell phone use.
  3. After two hours of use, the blood-brain barrier begins to leak, allowing neurotoxins in food, air or water to affect the brain and nerves, eventually leading to brain cell death.
  4. For digital cell phone users who began using a cell phone as teenagers or younger, the increased risk of brain cancer is 420%.
  5. Prenatal exposure to cell phones results in emotional and hyperactive problems in children around the time they reach school age.
  6. Exposure to electromagnetic fields activates voltage-gated calcium channels. This leads to increased calcium levels within cells, which leads to the production of a series of compounds including peroxynitrite. Peroxynitrite is at the root of most inflammatory diseases, including neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases, migraines and allergies. (2)

One of the pioneers of this research was Dr Milton Zaret, in the 1950s. Dr Zaret was an ophthalmologist who explored the risks to the eye from microwave radiation. He theorised the existence of microwave cataracts – a clouding of the eye caused by microwave radiation. Unlike normal cataracts, which form toward the front of the eye, Zaret explained that microwave cataracts form on the posterior capsule at the rear of the eye (because microwave radiation can reach through the eye). These cataracts could develop from chronic low levels of MW exposure, not just from strong exposures. Sadly, Zaret lost his military funding to investigate this issue further. (3)


The most common symptoms of EHS/wifi exposure can be headaches, depression, light-sensitivity, muscle and joint pain, fatigue, dehydration, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, ringing in the ears, high blood pressure, nausea, rashes and sleeping difficulty.  Wifi signals can activate the ‘cell-suicide’ response. Having a wifi router on your desk gives you about the same amount of radiation that you would get thirty metres of less from a typical cellular antenna.

“The balance of evidence suggests that childhood leukaemia is associated with exposure to power frequency EMFs either during early life or pregnancy.” – Dr Michael Kundi

It’s not just childhood leukaemia that is associated with EMF, adults are affected too. In 1997, Gilles Theriault of McGill University in Canada published the results of a study in which he’d found that people who lived within 50 – 100 metres of a high-voltage powerline in Taiwan had double the expected rate of leukaemia. In 1985, the people most susceptible to these fields were electronics technicians, electricians, radio and telegraph operators, radio operators, welders, aluminium reduction workers and motion picture projectionists. (3) Today, we can add computer programmers, hairdressers, TV producers, office workers, cleaners, sewing machine operators, teachers, welders and any profession requiring the use of a mobile phone or computer.


The 5G roll-out was announced in June 2016, and these untested frequencies include the ‘never-before-released-millimetre-wave’ frequency (mmw). This is microwave radiation.

MMWs are the shortest, fastest, highest intensity wavelengths within the microwave spectrum. These are the same waves used in airport scanners where high incidences of cancers are found in Trans Security Administration workers who operate them. MMW are unique in that insects (such as bees), plants, human skin and eyes are especially impacted by them. MMWs have NOT yet been tested for safety by ANY agency.

The plan is to eventually place them on every light and electricity pole in every neighbourhood.

Scientists have discovered that our skin, our largest organ, responds to 5G and that our sweat ducts can act as antennas and receive signals. Experts in the field expect a jump in melanoma rates around the nation.

Former US Government physicist, Dr Ron Powell points out that 5G “would irradiate everyone, including the most vulnerable, to harm from radiofrequency radiation: pregnant women, unborn children, young children, the elderly, the disabled and the chronically ill.

Only two months before this announcement, the US National Toxicology Program study concluded that microwave radiation causes DNA breaks and cancers of the brain and heart. lawyers state;

 The Looming Health Risks of 5G Technology

Mobile Now Act suggests that the United States government, including both the Senate and Federal Communications Commission, plans to expand 5G mobile broadband throughout the country. While many parties are focused on the potential advantages that 5G speed will provide for technology and communications, there are many experts who are already beginning to predict that the implementation of 5G technology throughout the country will pose greater health risks than wireless technology already does.

New York University Study

In 2015, analysts at New York University argued in a report for revised safety metrics based on body temperature opposed to standard power density. 5G networks, however, will be built around standard power density, which threatens both individual health and the environment. Because future devices using 5G will operate on a spectrum with different qualities than today’s wireless broadband, researchers behind the study also express the dire need for the Federal Communications Commission to review and adjust its policies accordingly. One of the rules that researchers articulated must be updated is that the current Federal Communications Commission standards do not specify limits above 100 GHz, which wireless networks will inevitably use as technology continues to improve.

Massey University Study

New York University is not the only centre arguing for changes in current safety standards regarding the potential threat of 5G. Massey University in New Zealand is in the process of conducting an investigation, “Analyzing Harmful Electromagnetic Exposure Due to Future Millimeter Wave Transmissions,” to reveal exactly what negative impact 5G will have on human health. The principal investigator behind the program has expressed the potential impact that the study could have including required structural changes if 5G is proven to have adverse health consequences. The likely danger by 5G is that network changes will require an increase in the number of wireless transmitters used. Early announcements of the study also suggest that 5G might bring our country dangerously close to exceeding the defined limits for power density, which could very well threaten the health of individuals to a degree not yet seen. Cell Phone Cancer could continue to become a more common occurrence.”

It is certainly interesting that these lawyers are warning about increased cases of cancer due to 5G.

Attached is an interesting YouTube video that talks about the research associated with 5G and what we can expect to see. Even if you only watch the first 10 minutes, it gives a good idea about the research that has been done.
