Have you ever used mobile data or a mobile broadband on your tablet or smartphone? The terms 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G are often used in this context. But what exactly do these abbreviations mean? Which frequencies do the individual mobile phone communications standards use? And what is the difference between them?
Bee deaths and cell phone radiation – is there a direct connection?
Bees produce honey that is popular with both young and old. But that is not all: as pollinator insects, they are especially important for our ecosystem. They guarantee us a large number of foods and are responsible for good harvests as well as ecological biodiversity. However, the bee population is in danger: 90 % of the bee colonies disappeared in the USA in 2007. In Europe, 53 % of the bees have died in the last ten years. Could the ever-increasing expansion of the mobile phone network have contributed to this? This question will be in our focus below. For this purpose, we will look at selected aspects of the bee´s physical constitution and behavior. In addition, we will give an overview of the study situation and consider the influence of the new 5G mobile phone network on the bee.
The latest Bikom survey deals with the acceptance of 5G cell towers by Germans. The 5th generation of mobile communications (5G) not only provides high speeds and low delays with regard to data transmission. New frequencies and an enormous upgrade of the transmission towers are planned as well. No need to worry, network operators assure the public. They are already advertising the new technology. Smartphone manufacturers intend to release devices compatible with the new standard later this year. What do users think about the topic? After all, numerous scientific studies have documented health risks from the 2nd, 3rd and 4th generation mobile communications and have already taken a critical view of 5G. Indeed, they have even warned against expansion. According to the Bitkom survey of 5G cell towers published on 20 April 2020, Germans are concerned about the topic. We’ll give you an overview of the most significant survey results.
A recent 5G review of international scientists has documented health damages caused by WiFi and mobile phone radiation of the 5th generation (5G). The Journal Toxicology Letters, Volume 323 published the systematic review in the May issue. Diagnose-Funk also presented it in the ElektrosmogReport (1/2020). What distinguishes the publications and, in particular, the 5G review? We take a look at the research results in an overview.
New Safe 5G Act in the USA − On Monday, 23 March 2020, the President of the USA signed the “Secure 5G and Beyond Act of 2020”. Among other things, it requires the development of a strategy to ensure and maximize the security of the next-generation (5G) mobile telecommunications infrastructure and systems in the United States. What developments is the government’s legislative announcement based upon? To answer the question, we provide an overview below of previous regulations of radiation protection limits in the USA and the current discourse in science and research on this topic.
On 31 May 2011, the committee of the WHO cancer organization, the IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer), decided that electromagnetic fields (EMF) are ”potentially carcinogenic” to humans. This classification means that, according to the IARC, there is limited evidence of carcinogenic effects of radiofrequency magnetic fields on humans. Now the WHO wants to reclassify the EMF risk for our health. Since modern technology developments are constantly growing, this is imperative.
The new mobile phone standard 5G is in the starting blocks. It is already available in China, South Korea and the USA. There are also test projects for 5G in Germany. These include the first closed networks in the port of Hamburg, in Darmstadt and downtown Berlin as well as test networks in Munich and Aldenhoven. Doubts about the new technology and its harmlessness to health are growing steadily. The most important questions on the subject are therefore answered below.
Is the health of your family at risk from the expansion of the 5th generation of cellular networks? This question is critically discussed in the media and research. In our article, we would like to help you clearly understand the most important questions about 5G & health.
- What is 5G and why we need to talk about it?
- Are there any health risks we need to aware of?
- What can you do about 5G?
