While the topic is heavily debated, 5G technology is being installed in the United States but the UK is upholding a ban on the expanded telecommunications service. Studies out of India, Israel, and Germany show that 5G towers and infrastructure are harmful and will increase the health risks to human, animals, and agriculture. Reports from the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) contradict these findings and insist that 5G is safe. The people of Bristol UK oppose 5G and it is likely that others will jump on the bandwagon as independent studies continue to surface.
What Is 5G?
5G (fifth generation) is another spectrum of radiation energy and is an expanded version of the internet, phone, and telecommunications services. Currently, more of the United States utilize 4G or 3G technology, which replaced 2G and analog, and 5G is already tested in specific metro areas.
5G will use up to 28GHz (powerful radio frequencies) and promises to increase connection speeds and make them faster. This can be beneficial for businesses or the self-employed who rely on their fast phone service for business; everyone will benefit from faster telecommunications.
The debate starts with the need for new 5G capable cell towers to be installed and in closer proximity to one another, which will ensure that promised speeds can be reached. This means normally where homes and schools would be apart from large cell phone towers, with 5G, towers will be telephone poles, the tops of elementary, junior and high schools (close to daycares), and other large buildings.
The Dangers Of 5G
Studies show that 5G will be detrimental to the health and wellbeing of those close to towers and those utilizing the cell service from radio frequency (RF) radiation exposures.
Representatives from 170 countries, which include: scientists, doctors, environmental organizations, and private citizens are calling for the immediate suspension of 5G tower installation via a petition “International Appeal: Stop 5G on Earth and Space”. This document includes almost 100,000 names.
Reports from those who signed this petition insist that there is evidence of damage to DNA, cells, and organs of plants and animals. They say that cases of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes will dramatically rise due to the “electromagnetic pollution” that 5G will create.

Why Brussels Is Already Banning 5G
Brussels states the pilot projects that have been launched, and subsequent tests, do not meet the radiation safety standards that have been imposed on the UK. Due to these standards, Minister Celine Femault said:
“I cannot welcome such technology if the radiation standards, which must protect the citizen, are not respected, 5G or not. The people of Brussels are not guinea pigs whose health I can sell at a profit. We cannot leave anything to doubt.”
Regardless of the benefits of 5G, the Minister has decided the benefits do not outweigh the risks and she refuses to make an exception to the standards that are in place.
Telecommunications companies are known to have strong lobbyists and with that comes money. While smaller countries are able to stave off those who fund these programs, countries like the United States allow legislation to be influenced by heavily funded lobbyists. In order to get a true reading on the risks of 5G, detrimental studies must surface in order to overturn the already begun advancement of this technology. Targets of having 5G available to 85% of the US, by the first half of the 2020-2030 decade, are in full effect.
Supporting these efforts are cell phone manufactures who are beginning to roll out upgraded models that use 5G technology. The cell phones currently used cannot work off 5G, however, new phones have been designed and developed and are already starting to hit the market. The production of faster phones is a hot sale for cell phone companies who stand to make billions off upgraded phone sales.
While Brussels has been able to ward off the installation of 5G infrastructure, the United States only seems to be ramping up the production of 5G cell towers and communications systems. Time will tell if Brussels was correct with not allowing the 5G technology because of grave concerns or if the United States are the victors in the battle.
