5G broadband

The dangers of 5G

5G is being sold to us as enabling high speed internet, super quick download speeds, 'smart' devices including smart cities, smart cars etc and the 'Internet of Things' (ie where all products are connected wirelessly to the internet). In practice, this means that exposure to EM radiation will increase exponentially

To date there have been over 10,000 peer related studies showing that radio frequency radiation (RF) and electromagnetic (EM) radiation is harmful to life. (see powerwatch.org.uk and www.ehtrust.org for a list of studies).
Studies assessing cancer and wireless radiation are particularly disturbing. The World Health Organisation's (W.H.O) International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified microwave radiation from ALL wireless devices as a possible human cause of cancer in 2011.

At the moment, most people in Ireland can access 4G (4th Generation) broadband cellular network technology. Exposure to EM radiation is bad enough as things stand, but in the Dublin Docklands, Dungarvan, Gorey, Clonmel and Roscommon, 5G technology is being or soon will be tested, followed eventually by the rest of the country.

The implementation of 5G means that exposure to EM radiation will increase exponentially as 5G technology makes use of ultra high frequency radiation. It also means that many thousands of small cell antennas will be built everywhere, including beside houses and schools, as is already happening across the United States (although they are being bitterly opposed). Recently more than 230 scientists and doctors from more than 40 countries have warned of the dangers of 5G and in an appeal to the E.U. have recommended a moratorium on its’ implementation. (https://www.5gappeal.eu/scientists-and-doctors-warn-of-potential-...f-5g/).

In addition, 5G uses millimetre wave technology which operates on the same frequency band as the U.S. military uses for crowd control (people feel as if their skin is burning). It is no wonder then, that UN staff member Claire Edwards called this technology a 'War on Humanity'.
