In 2007, former Vice President Dick Cheney was so worried that someone would try to murder him by hacking his wireless pacemaker that he had the antenna turned off (see 1, 2). He wasn’t wrong to worry. Over the years, the potential for pacemaker hacking has been reported by many experts. In 2017, the FDA recalled almost ½ million pacemakers due to hacking concerns.
It makes NO sense that the FDA continues to approve wireless medical devices and doctors continue to prescribe them. Electromagnetic Interference(EMI) seems to be a possibility with cell phone radiation – even the FDA says so. Even a maker of wireless toothbrushes say so.
Now that 5G small cell technology is being forced on communities worldwide despite NO SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE THAT IT IS SAFE and plenty of research that says it isn’t (see 1, 2, 3, 4) it seems reasonable that people with pacemakers and everyone else should be concerned.
5G cell phone antennas are coming to Pensacola, wireless companies like AT&T and Verizon said this will bring faster internet to the area.
But this has raised concerned with many people living in Pensacola.
Jeff Morris, Pensacola resident, said his main concern is his own health.
“I have a pacemaker and I know that I am not supposed to be anywhere close to high radio frequency equipment of any kind,” said Morris.
Cell phone towers emit radio frequency radiation.
Dr. Natalia Hernandez, Cardiac Electorophysiologist with Baptist Health said there is not enough research to support that 5G or any cell phones tower frequencies impact pacemakers.
“At this point we don’t have enough data to suggest that there is a negative impact, as with new technology we’ll just have to keep an eye on it and see how it involves in the future,” said Hernandez.
Wow. I wonder how many of Dr. Hernandez’s patients will be comforted by her “keep an eye on it” approach. Thank God not all doctors feel that way:
5G is an untested application of a technology that we know is harmful; we know it from the science. In academics, this is called human subjects research. – Dr. Sharon Goldberg
