This page presents an overview of the health hazards of exposure to radio-frequency electro-magnetic radiation in the microwave and millimeter wavelengths. Once you’ve seen the overview, have a look at the peer-reviewed research studies.

Testimony of Medical Doctors Against 5G Roll-Out in Michigan

Dr. Sharon Goldberg at Michigan’s 5G Small Cell Tower Legislation Hearing on October 4, 2018

“5G is not a conversation about whether or not these biological effects exist. They clearly do. 5G is a conversation about unsustainable healthcare expenditures.”
~ Sharon Goldberg, MD

Dr. Angie Colbeck at Michigan’s 5G Small Cell Tower Legislation Hearing on October 4, 2018

“There are now thousands upon thousands of studies showing the adverse health impacts [of] wireless radiation.”
~ Angie Colbeck, MD

List of Health Hazards

  • Excessive Intracellular Calcium; interference with Voltage-Gated Calcium Channels (VJCCs) seems to be the root cause of all other effects, per Martin Pall
  • Oxidative Stress and Free Radical Damage
  • Cellular DNA Damage
    • Single and Double DNA breaks
    • Oxidized Bases (HOdG)
    • Germline mutations
    • DNA Failure
    • Apoptosis (Programmed Cell Death)
  • Clear evidence of several types of Cancers, including:
    • Gliomas in the brain
    • Schwannomas in the heart
  • Increased initiation of carcinogenesis
    • increased tumor promotion and progression
    • increased tissue invasion and metastasis
  • Cardiac effects via electrical control of the Heart
    • Instantaneous Tachycardia
    • Chronic exposures often cause Bradycardia
    • Both short-term and long-term exposures cause Arhythmias
    • Heart Palpitations
    • Other effects on the heart muscle
  • Blood Pressure and Vascular effects
  • Elevated Blood Glucose, leading to Diabetes
  • Changes in Stress Proteins
  • Neurological effects
    • Major changes in brain structure seen in animals
    • Changes involving the Blood/Brain Barrier
    • Effects on Neuron Firing Rates in EEGs
    • Insomnia, Sleep Disturbances
    • Fatigue, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
    • Anxiety / Stress / Agitation / Irritability
    • Lack of Concentration / Cognitive Dysfunction
    • Learning Difficulties
    • ADD / ADHD
    • Memory Loss / Memory Dysfunction
    • Very Early Onset Alzheimer’s and other Dementias: we are seeing people age 30 developing Alzheimer’s and young people developing “digital dementia”
    • Parkinson’s
    • Autism
    • Brain Inflammation
  • Neuropsychiatric effects
    • Behavioural Disorders
    • Social Anxiety
    • Panic Disorder
    • Bipolar Disorder
    • Depression, Major Depressive Disorder
    • Anger, Violent Outbursts
    • Suicide
  • Endocrine (Hormone) effects
    • EMR appears to impact every single hormone system in the body, both steroid and non-steroid hormones
    • EMR can produce either increased or decreased hormone activity, depending on conditions
  • Disrupted Immune Function
  • Reproductive and Infertility Effects
    • Lowered Sperm Count, Motility, Quality
    • Lowered number of Follicles (Eggs)
    • Changes in Structure of Testes and Ovaries
    • Increased Miscarriage / Spontaneous Abortion
    • Lowered levels of each of the 3 sex hormones
    • Lowered Libido

INCIRP “safety guidelines” do not protect public health. We are already seeing plummeting fertility in developed countries.

Biological Effects from RF Radiation at Low-Intensity Exposure, based on the BioInitiative 2012 Report, and the Implications for Smart Meters and Smart Appliances

Full 16-Page Report by Ronald M. Powell, PhD

The Biological Effects Chart, [below], has been produced using data from a massive new review of the medical research literature on the biological effects of electromagnetic fields. That review is called the BioInitiative 2012 Report. <2> The purpose of the Biological Effects Chart is to show the radiofrequency (RF) exposure levels at which biological effects were found in 67 studies from the RF Color Charts of the BioInitiative 2012 Report, and then to compare those exposure levels to the following:

(1) current FCC Maximum Permitted Exposure (MPE) limits that govern Smart Meters and Smart Appliances in the United States

(2) new biologically based RF exposure limits proposed in the BioInitiative 2012 Report

(3) calculated RF exposure levels produced by a single Smart Meter at various distances

(4) calculated RF exposure levels produced by a single Smart Appliance at various distances

This comparison is based on RF exposure levels expressed as the RF power density (RF power per unit area). This comparison does not address other potentially important factors such as carrier continuity (continuous versus pulsed radiation) and modulation technique (the method used to impress information on the carrier), among others. The purpose is to identify what biological effects arise from exposure to RF power density levels like those produced by Smart Meters and Smart Appliances.

This comparison indicates the following:

(1) The current FCC Maximum Permitted Exposure (MPE) limits are so high that they provide no protection for the public from the biological effects found in any of the 67 studies.

(2) New biologically based RF exposure limits proposed in the BioInitiative 2012 Report are 1 million times lower than current FCC limits and would protect against the biological effects found in nearly all of the 67 studies.

(3) A single Smart Meter on a home can produce RF exposure levels that caused the biological effects found in either most or many of the 67 studies, depending on the distance from the Smart Meter.

(4) A single Smart Appliance in the home can produce RF exposure levels that caused the biological effects found in nearly half or fewer of the 67 studies, depending on the distance from the Smart Appliance. Multiple Smart Appliances in a home multiply the total exposure.

(5) A single Smart Meter on a nearest neighbor’s home can produce RF exposure levels that caused the biological effects found in many of the 67 studies. A given home may have one to eight nearest neighbors, each with a Smart Meter, multiplying the total exposure in the given home.

Other observations:

(1) Most biological effects of RF exposure cannot be sensed by human beings. Examples are the onset of cancer, DNA damage, and fertility effects. One category of effects that can often be sensed includes neurological effects on sleep, memory, learning, and behavior.

(2) Unborn and very young children may be more affected by RF exposure than adults.
