A part of Breast Health Awareness Month is learning more about the “unseen dangers” of cellphone radiation. According to Dr. Andrew Weil, “Electropollution may be the most significant form of pollution human activity has produced in this century.” It is dangerous because you don’t feel it, see it or taste it but it affects you 24/7.
As of 2016, these dangers are becoming more apparent and backed by science. The United States National Toxicology Program (NTP, a part of the U.S. National Institute of Health) has just completed a $25 million multi-year study on cellphone emissions. Ironically, its original purpose was to prove that the radiation emitted by cellphones is safe. The results, however, turned out to be just the opposite.
The NIH Report
The study started in 2009 and focused on the cancer risk of hundreds of rats exposed to varying levels of cellphone radiation for nine hours a day over a 2-year period. Prior research had made the connection between long-term cellphone exposure and breast cancer and brain cancer.
The NIH study, however, is significant since it is the result of a long-term government investigation and it has found what is perhaps the strongest evidence to date on the link between cellphone use and cancer as well as its effects on the heart.
The NIH researchers found that as rodents were exposed to greater levels of radiation, the incidents of glial (brain) tumors as well as cancer of the heart nerve— both considered “rare” conditions —grew significantly. These findings correspond with other studies which have made the correlation between cellphone use and brain and breast cancer in humans.
“It actually has me concerned, and I’m an expert,” study founder Christopher Portier said in a 2016 interview for Scientific American.
What is 5G?
The NIH report proves the link to cancer for extensive and close-range 2G cellphone use, which was the norm in 2009. But 2G
doesn’t even come close to the strength of today’s cellphone frequencies as well as what is to come.
The “5G spectrum” began its trial phase in 2017 and is expected to cover 95% of both urban and rural areas in the United States by 2020. The main thing to keep in mind about 5G is that it is not just the “5th generation” of wireless signals; 5G uses frequencies in the gigahertz range (up to 86 GHz) that have never been tested for human safety.
5G cannot travel as far as previous wireless generations (2G, 3G, and 4G). This factor conveniently gives the wireless industry the justification for a massive roll-out. It has been projected that each of the four major cellphone carriers will install one million new cell towers in coming years.
5G proponents say that this roll-out is being done in the name of consumer demand for faster connection speeds as well as in preparation for “smart cities,” “smart homes” and “smart vehicles” that will be connected by the “Internet of Things.”
We all want more convenience for our stressful lives, but at what cost to health? According to past Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chair Tom Wheeler, research is simply “not necessary.” To learn more about validated research by independent scientists and the effects of EMF on your body, visit the Bio-initiative Report website.
What You Can Do
The most important thing you can do is to learn how to protect yourself and your family. Start with simple things like hard wiring your lap top and turning off your electronic devices (including wireless routers) at night. Keep cellphones and other internet or blue tooth-dependent gadgets away from your body. If you must use these devices at close range or if you are particularly electro-sensitive, consider investing in quality EMF protection. Hands down, the best technology in my opinion comes from GIA Wellness. This patented technology is based on Noise Field Technology and has been tested by independent laboratory studies that validate the reduction of “hot spots” on the brain.
Worried about that “Smart Meter” and its effect on your health? GIA Wellness has you covered.
I personally have tested hundreds of people to validate the effectiveness of this type of protection. I have used these products personally and professionally for over 10 years.
There are several organizations you can reach out to find out more about the 5 G effect on your body and on the planet, such as Whatis5g.info.
As you learn about 5G and how to protect yourself from electro-pollution of all kinds, be sure to educate others! Other blogs on this site as well as EMF emissions expert and consumer advocate Jeromy Johnson’s user-friendly website are good places to start!
Remember that it is up to YOU to investigate how to best protect yourself against this deadly toxin. In doing so, you will be moving one step closer to creating vibrant health.
