Cell Tower Radiation Facts & 5G Unknowns

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Cell phone towers dot the landscape every so many hundred or thousand feet in most places, especially along interstate highways and on higher or hill-top locations.  Because there is such a demand for cell phone service—more cell phones now than the total global population—more and more technology means of providing service have to be implemented.  However, cell towers cost around $150,000 each to erect.  Consequently, cell providers want less expensive ‘infrastructure’ to be able to provide faster and ‘better’ service, therefore, the introduction of “5G”, which no one knows what that “generation of service” will do to humans, wildlife and the environment.

One of the more resolute EMR/RF/cell phone radiation researchers is Lloyd Burrell of Royan Poitou Charentes, France, in the European Union.  Lloyd does an exceptional job of researching, providing a newsletter and also interviewing other researchers on his weekly Internet show, which can be accessed at ElectricSense and lloyd@electricsense.com.

Recently Lloyd produced an extremely informative document about “Cell Tower Radiation & Cancer, The Facts” wherein he listed 17 References and/or citations from scientific journals pointing out connections between cell towers and cancer.  I’ve taken the liberty to reproduce those References below, as they point to apparent health hazards that are ‘overlooked’ in favor of implementing cell phone and tech services.

If the research below indicates problems, especially cancer, what can we expect from 5G?  No one really knows!

Currently, 5G is being “trial run” at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea where it is being used to deal with wild boar that roam the countryside and pose threats to those frequenting Winter Olympic venues.

Fortune Magazine published a report by Bloomberg News about how 5G was being used to ward off the porcine pests who roam the mountainous region around the Games with fast-acting systems that shoot rays…”  What?  That should not come as a surprise, as the military has used 5G as “weaponized frequencies.”

In the online article “5G Weaponized Frequencies: A Ground Based Web System”

Barbara Johnson, an electrical engineer and star wars tactician, discusses 5G weaponized frequencies and the dangers of this unproven and untested energy field that will engulf much of the US.  She examines the unavoidable health risks associated with 5G and questions why our government is all too eager to roll this out throwing caution to the wind. Unlike conventional wireless technology, the 5G ground based web system generates an energy “field” vs. a wave transmission despite the fact many refer to this as millimeter wave technology. Fields are constant and create a grid like topography, whereas waves do not. Waves can be cancelled whereas fields can not without creating an equal but opposite field – so what’s gained or negated?

Within the above website, there’s a most informative video, which I cannot embed into this article, but certainly hope readers will access and watch.  You will understand a lot more than you probably do about 5G.  Around 20 minutes on that video timeline, you will hear about some studies done on 5G by a few countries which now are questioning rolling out 5G.  Learn the differences between frequencies and fields.

One of the cautions I think that needs to be offered is that 5G and much of the high tech devices and services being forced upon society will wind up being similar to that of nuclear science and nuclear fission:  ‘Science’ introduced and implemented a horrendously destructive technology which cannot be neutralized and becomes a death sentence when it gets out of control or experiences an ‘accident’ [1].

What happens when a nuclear power plant blows?  Does anyone think Fukushima has been made safe [2]?  What did they have to do to Chernobyl?


Who will be the guardians of those radioactive sites for thousands of years?

Buyer and High Tech Consumers Beware!

What everyone really has to understand and process is this:  Any product, service or device that sends and/or receives voice, data, photos or other information uses MICROWAVES to do so, which means you are subject to radiofrequency radiation and non-thermal wave radiation.  That means such appliances as your smart TV, refrigerator, iPhone, and utility company AMI Smart Meters pump out frequencies you may not want to have penetrating your body and brain.

We’ve read above about cell phone tower exposures, but nothing is being said about 5G health and safety issues.

Researchers acknowledge that 5G will penetrate the skin, but how deeply, no one can say as that depends upon an individual’s immediate exposure!  5G is known to be able to cause cataracts.  However, there’s emerging information that 5G may have a role in Ocular Melanoma [3, 4].

Desiree Jaworski, executive director of the Center for Safer Wireless, a nonprofit organization that educates the public about the potential hazards of wireless radiation, said 5G signals will be harder for people to avoid.

“Right now, you don’t have to live next to a cell tower. If you’re concerned about it, you can move away,” she said. “But once they have these [5G] cell antennas everywhere, you won’t be able to do that.” 


Realistically, we have to ask will 5G prove there will be no place to run to and/or be safe or free from microwave radiation penetrations, especially since 5G towers legally will be able to be placed on poles outside your front doors or windows.

However, the answer will depend upon who wants to buy into, accept and use—or those who reject—5G and all the high tech conveniences it powers.  Ultimately, consumers probably will learn–maybe too late—their smart gadgets are depriving them of their life energy forces.  Will technology be worth that?

Singularity [5]!  That’s a new meme buzz word.  Are you familiar with what it represents?
