Why are people afraid of 5G technology

The developers of the fifth generation of mobile communication promise the world a technological breakthrough. However, 5G technology has a mass of opponents. In 2019-2020, numerous protests against the installation of 5G towers took place in the United States, Switzerland and Cyprus. And in the midst of the Coronavirus epidemic in Britain, disgruntled citizens even began burning the towers, suspecting that they were somehow connected with the spread of the disease.

What is 5G?

For the average consumer, switching to fifth-generation mobile communications means increasing the average data transfer volume to 1-2 Gbit/s and the maximum to 70 Gbit/s. While 3G technology was enough to provide voice communication, and 4G - for mobile Internet, 5G technology is designed not only for comfortable consumption of online content, but also for the full use of all the possibilities of the Internet. Due to the transition to the new frequencies can be implemented a full virtual reality and the so-called "tactile Internet".

5G is a telecommunication standard for millimeter frequencies (for example, in the USA 28 GHz, 37 GHz and 39 GHz frequencies have been allowed to be used since 2016). This involves changing the density of cell towers - they must be placed every 100-200 meters, i.e. as often as lampposts. However, the 5G tower is more compact than a normal tower - the equipment fits in a small box that can be placed almost anywhere.

5G technology can hurt humanity

The electromagnetic radiation frequencies used in 5G technology are close in some respects to those used in microwave ovens as well as in military microwave guns. Accordingly, they have the potential to have a negative impact on organisms and, in particular, on living organisms.

Unfortunately, there is no link between medical control in the development of technologies, as is the case with the introduction of new drugs. The telecommunications giants themselves, for obvious reasons, are not too interested in financing serious research that could reveal the harm 5G to living organisms. Therefore, one has to rely on data collected by Stop5G activists in different countries.

First of all, they talk about the possible negative impact of electromagnetic radiation on animals that use electromagnetic pulses to coordinate in space and communicate with each other - mainly birds or insects. In the Netherlands, for example, a local population of starlings became extinct after the appearance of the 5G towers.

According to the Swiss edition of ProNature, millimeter waves raise insect body temperatures. Electromagnetic waves have long been used in agriculture to scare away pests. There is evidence that 5G irradiation also increases the temperature of the human body. Dr. Martin Poll from the University of Washington concluded that pulsed electromagnetic field 5G has a devastating effect on the brain and heart. Other researchers even talk about damage from DNA radiation in the human body, which can cause cancer.

There is another serious threat. It can't be ruled out that 5G towers can be used for psychic effects on people. It could be useful to the government, for example, when it comes to riot control.

5G and the coronavirus

Protests against 5G technology intensified in the spring of 2020. In England, against the backdrop of the COVID-19 epidemic, cell phone towers were set on fire. Such incidents took place in Birmingham, Liverpool, Mercyside and Melling.  Wuhan, where the coronavirus epidemic began, is one of the most advanced telecommunications cities in China. At the very end of 2019, China Telecom launched a 5G network in Wuhan, installing 10 thousand base stations in the streets. The version that COVID-19 and 5G technologies are connected with each other is defended by popular in England boxer Amir Khan. The British department responsible for digital communications, however, officially responded that there is no connection between the spread of coronavirus and electromagnetic radiation.

Opponents of the conspiracy theory point out that in Iran, where communication technology is low, the figures for Coronavirus infection are also very high.  So the observed statistical correlation between the communication technology used and COVID-19 outbreaks is most likely due to the high population density in developed megacities. However, there is also a feedback. Cities where telecommunication networks are better developed give authorities more opportunities to establish total quarantine, introduce electronic passes and use drones to defeat the virus.
