What Is a Safe Distance from a 5G Tower?
For years, studies have shown the health risks of cell phone and wireless radiation. As early as 2011, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified RF electromagnetic fields (EMFs) as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” Now we are experiencing the fast rollout of 5G technology. One of the most significant differences of 5G is that it operates on 30 GHz to 300 GHz, also known as the millimeter band or millimeter wave (MM wave). This higher frequency doesn’t travel as far as lower frequencies, so it requires many smaller cell phone towers.
How does this new technology affect human health?
The Dangers of 5G and MM Waves
A research study in 2021 found that millimeter wave electromagnetic fields had a penetrating effect on the human body, impacting the brain, where it produces EEG changes and other neurological and neuropsychiatric variations. It was also found to increase electromagnetic hypersensitivity as well as produce changes to cardiac activity and ulcers. Scientists concluded that “any initial effects on rollout of 5G are likely to be dwarfed by effects of any full-fledged 5G system communicating with billions of devices.” They pointed out that the effects of “massive amounts of pulsed EMF communication” would be amplified by electromagnetic hypersensitivity.
Are 5G Towers Dangerous?
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) estimates that more than 800,000 5G antennas will need to be installed throughout the U.S. There are now several studies that discovered the harmful effects of 5G towers due to RF radiation.
How Much Radiation Do 5G Towers Give Off?
Miniature base stations using small 5G cells radiate less than one watt of power, compared to 200 watts from a macro base station. However, hundreds of thousands of “mini towers” means greater 5G tower radiation exposure.
Protect Yourself from 5G Radiation
What is a safe distance from a 5G tower? It is difficult to know. For traditional cell phone towers, research has shown many serious health effects within 400 meters (approximately 1,300 feet) from a cell tower. These effects include headaches, sleep disturbances, heart arrhythmia, cancer, dizziness, fatigue, anxiety, memory loss, mood changes and much more. The 5G mini-towers will soon be nearly everywhere—on streetlights, on the sides and tops of buildings and elsewhere.
Can you protect yourself from the radiation from 5G towers? Yes, you can. EMF Harmony offers advanced 5G EMF protection to neutralize harmful EMF radiation while supporting optimal health. Our proprietary technology has been successfully used in Europe for more than 20 years.
