For some people, the convenience 5G promises under the provisor that it will make life easier could be good – if it wouldn’t affect our health so badly.
5G technology can perform functions practically on auto-pilot – with almost no human intervention necessary. But wait, there’s more. The possibilities are endless with artificial intelligence’s ability to work autonomously and connect to any piece of machinery that carries an antenna and microchip. The opportunities of this new technology are exhilarating, with capabilities to monitor any number of people with their health, fitness, medication regime and monitoring of vitals (BP, blood sugar, sleep). Not only that, but 5G technology also has wider agricultural utilisation in assisting farmers in tracking their livestock’s health, their sleep patterns, as well as aerial monitoring of temperature and growing conditions, all from their tablet or smart phone.1, 2
5G stands for 5th generation, an updated network of mobile wireless communication technology that will be rolled out extensively from 2020 onward to accommodate the large growth in data and connectivity of today’s modern society.3 5G promises the ‘better-faster-longer’ adage of better connectivity; faster streaming and downloads; greater network speeds; and very low latency (response time) over the network.4
With global demands for this new technology at an all-time high, concerns regarding the safety of 5G technology remain to be fully elucidated. These concerns include the unknown and unexplored effects on:
These are just a few of the concerns raised by this new technology, of which may be advancing at a rate faster than our legislation, privacy laws and spyware are able to keep up with.
Why different frequencies?
Radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic radiation (EMR) is the transfer of energy by radio waves. RF EMR lies in the frequency range between 3 kilohertz (kHz) to 300 gigahertz (GHz). RF EMR is non-ionising radiation, meaning that it has insufficient energy to break chemical bonds or remove electrons (ionisation).9 Both natural and artificial sources emit RF EMF – the sun and earth emit low levels, whilst microwaves, radars, mobile phones, wireless networks (WIFI and cordless phones) and radio and TV broadcasting emit EMFs.
In order to carry out this increase in data and connectivity, there will be millions of small cell antennas mounted on existing structures and installed every 50-250m to ensure better coverage, particularly in high-density populations/areas. Also appearing will be MIMO (multiple in multiple out) antennas – with many antenna connections for sending and receiving greater amounts of data simultaneously.
What do we really know about EMFs?
EMF radiation exposure has been researched for decades, with inconclusive results on its genotoxic and carcinogenic effects.11 Given the growing rate of people becoming sensitive to EMFs is increasing over time10 – with incidences estimated to be from 1.5% of the population of Sweden, to 13.3% of the population in Taiwan being affected 12 – we must take into consideration the combined additive effect on one’s system with this constant exposure to low-level EMFs.
Several studies have concluded that the molecular effects of non-ionising radiation on the body include: an increase of oxidative stress13, and thus significant activation of key pathways generating reactive oxidative species 6, 13 which may damage DNA 6, 13 and affect sperm quality 14 with the major site of intracellular ROS generation observed after RF-EMR exposure being the mitochondria.14
Like it or not, this technology has and will become a permanent feature in our lives, with the technological advances now a necessity in order to keep up with our global alliances. However, we can utilise strategies to remain informed and provide protection for ourselves, friends, families and the wider communities in which we live.
Our first port of call is to identify sources of RF-EMF in our immediate environment and reduce our exposure to them. Some common household radiation-emitting devices include WIFI routers, smart meter and electrical boxes, mobile phones, tablet devices and computers, Bluetooth technology, and microwave ovens.
Personal EMF protection device – which is based on natural laws and principles would be the number one way to help your body cope.
We trust the Blushield devices, which work by emitting millions of natural scalar frequencies for a few seconds every 30 seconds. Scalar energy is found in nature and is, therefore, a frequency that our body has evolved with and can understand. Our body resonates with the scalar frequency. This is called sympathetic resonance.
The body naturally is drawn to Blushield’s natural scalar frequencies and thereby it can ignore or over-ride the artificial man-made electromagnetic frequencies of EMF. Our bodies can protect themselves on a cellular level.
There are many passive devices such as stickers and pendants, but they are not as strong as they don’t emit scalar energy.
Blushield uses power via an electrical socket or a battery to actively release scalar energy to ensure it is strong enough to combat the powerful man-made EMF.
Curcumin (Curcuma longa) – Is there anything curcumin can’t do? A well-established antioxidant 16 and anti-inflammatory herb17 humble turmeric and it’s active curcuminoids have been found to significantly reduce the damaging expression of cells exposed to EMF radiation.18
Green tea (Camellia sinensis) – The high content of antioxidants and polyphenols, specifically catechins, in green tea have been studied widely for the protective effects on cellular function to reduce oxidative stress,19 reduce DNA damage caused by UV radiation20 and provide neuronal protection against a broad range of toxic and nervous agents.21
N-acetylcysteine (NAC) – An antioxidant and precursor to glutathione, NAC is a go-to for reducing oxidative stress, improving antioxidant mechanisms and mitochondrial support. A rat study found that administration of NAC before high dose irradiation protected from radiation-induced
cellular and DNA damage.22
Ginkgo biloba – Recovery workers from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site were treated with 40mg ginkgo TDS for 2 months, showing the markers of chromosomal damage from irradiation were reduced to control levels on the first day of the end of the treatment. The benefits persisted for over a year, showing ongoing protective effects of ginkgo23
Rats exposed to prolonged exposure to mobile phone radiation demonstrated that radiation stimulated degenerative changes in the brain, inducing neuronal structural alterations. Those that were given ginkgo were found to have had minimal changes in comparison to control groups.25
Korean ginseng (Panax ginseng) – Ginseng has been shown in several studies to have protective effects from radiation exposure.26 In mice exposed to radiation, ginseng demonstrated neuroprotective benefits to the hippocampus, via the maintenance of calcium homeostasis by preventing impairment of intracellular calcium levels in the hippocampus.27
The radioprotective efficacy of ginseng was studied in the testicular enzymes of mice, concluding that ginseng markedly reduced lipid peroxidation and altered acid and alkaline phosphatases, protecting from the harmful effects of radiation and reducing oxidative stress.28
The constant omnipresence of radiation exposure from various devices, WIFI, Bluetooth and emissions from cell towers is now the norm. Whilst we are aware of the potential impacts of this technology on health at a cellular level, we can be encouraged to provide some natural solutions in order to enhance our body’s innate protective measures and enhance cell health. And hope that our bodies will adjust over the next few generations without weakening our immune systems to a point of no return.
