When it comes to 5G wireless technology, and wireless technology in general, doctors and scientists have been raising concerns for many years, calling for safety testing that is independent of industry-sponsored studies. You would think that safety testing for any technology that’s poised to roll out and be used by humanity at such a large scale would be subject to appropriate safety testing. Unfortunately, wireless technology has not been subjected to this type of testing, which is why many people are becoming more and more concerned. This is evident on a global level. For example, a large portion of the Swiss population has now been exposed to 5G, and thousands of people recently showed up on the Swiss House of Parliament in Bern to protest. You can read more about that here.
This is also why why a number of doctors, scientists and advocates have sent a National 5G Resolution letter to President Trump, requesting a moratorium on 5G technology until the potential hazards for human health and the environment have been investigated appropriately by scientists independent from the telecom industry.
The Need For Safety Testing
Dr. Martin L. Pall, PhD and Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University wrote a report whose title says it all: “5G: Great risk for EU, U.S. and International Health! Compelling Evidence for Eight Distinct Types of Great Harm Caused by Electromagnetic Field(EMF) Exposures and the Mechanism that Causes Them.” In his report he bluntly stated the following:
“Putting in tens of millions of 5G antennae without a single biological test of safety has got to be about the stupidest idea anyone has had in the history of the world.”
And he’s clearly not alone in his opinion. As the Environmental Health Trust Points out,
The 5G Resolution was developed during the first three-day US medical conference fully dedicated to this topic, Electromagnetic Fields Conference on Diagnosis and Treatment, which convened in Scotts Valley, California in September. (Watch videos from the conference here.)
The letter references the published scientific studies demonstrating harm to human health, bees, trees and the environment from current wireless technology and posits that 5G will both increase exposure and add in new technology never safety-tested for long-term exposure.
“We join with the thousands of doctors, scientists and health care providers worldwide who have recently issued appeals for urgent action on 5G to protect public health and call for a moratorium on 5G and any further wireless antenna densification until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from the wireless industry.”
“The children are our future. The scientific evidence has been clear for decades and now.”
“America has an opportunity to lead the way,” said Toril H. Jelter, MD, a pediatrician who presented at the EMF Conference with case studies on children she has treated who have dramatically improved after reducing wireless exposures. “It is my impression that health effects of wireless radiation go misdiagnosed and underdiagnosed for years. Parents, teachers and physicians need to know that hardwiring internet, phone and TV is a healthier option for our children.”
According to the 5G Resolution:
- The FCC has stated that 800,000 antenna sites will be required to fully deploy 5G in the United States, with global deployments expected to reach almost 5 million by 2021.
- New wireless antennas are rapidly being installed on streetlights and utility poles directly in front of homes and schools.
- 5G will dramatically increase the general public’s daily exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF), in addition to the emissions from 2G, 3G, 4G wireless infrastructure already in place.
- 5G was not premarket safety tested.
- Research shows biological effects from levels of wireless exposures presently allowed.
- Research on 5G emissions shows serious impacts to humans, bees, trees and wildlife.
The Electromagnetic Safety Alliance and Environmental Health Trust coordinated gathering signatories for the 5G Resolution, and both organizations also presented at the 2019 EMF Conference.

Is it really fair for governments and big industry to roll our products and services on the human population without any safety testing? How rigorous is the approval process? Human history is full of examples we should be learning. DDT is one example, tobacco is another one, and there are a number of substances today, like glyphosate, for example, that have been approved for use despite a large cry and publications from many scientists indicating that it’s harmful. Are we seeing the same thing with 5G? Is the rollout of 5G another example of corruption within our federal health regulatory agencies and their close ties with big business?
This is why it’s important for us to keep talking about and sharing this kind of information. With awareness comes action, with action comes change. In the meantime, if you’d like to reduce your exposure, there are a number of steps you can take. Here are 10 steps you can take to reduce your exposure to wireless radiation at home.
