Is 5G revolution a potential threat to humanity?
The new revolutionary technology is coming. Let's think what it has in store for us.
The letter G in the name of the next standard for mobile communications is an abbreviation for "generation". That being said, 5G is the fifth generation of mobile networks. It's 3x faster than 4G, but the biggest difference is how quickly signals are sent to and from devices. And while some of us are hyped by the thought of the revolutionary progress 5G will bring, the others are raising concerns about possible health risks tied to this.
Let's start with the basics, exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) is not something new and has been studied for years.
According to IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer), all radio frequencies are classified as B2 or "possibly carcinogenic". In 1996 WHO (World Health Organisation) established the International EMF Project that studies the possible health effects EMF has on humans in order to develop new standards limiting EMF exposure. Disturbing discoveries were made within the framework of this project: network generates radiofrequency radiation that can damage DNA and lead to cancer; cause oxidative damage that can cause premature aging; disrupt cell metabolism; and potentially lead to other diseases through the generation of stress proteins.
The radiation exposure limits have been developed by the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) in the late 1990's and don't take into account that these new higher frequencies are not able to spread as far due to the obstacles such as buildings and this system will have to use a dense network of fixed antennas outdoors every 300 meters, as well as systems inside buildings and structures. This alone will increase our exposure to EMF.
Back in September 2017 the 5G appeal prepared by hundreds of scientists and doctors was submitted to the European Commission.
The appeal is declaring that 5G will substantially increase exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) on top of the existing 2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, etc. Because we have no laws in place that genuinely protect humanity a question still remains: is there a way to protect yourself from EMF exposure?
The truth is, in the modern age, all electronic devices like computers, tablets and cell phones emit EMF. To avoid it completely would be a hard task to pursue and even impossible. However, you can mitigate the risks and decrease the exposure level.
You just need to follow these simple rules:

- Reduce the amount of sources, i.e. devices around you
- Reduce the time of exposure
- Increase your distance from the devices
- Use wired accessories like headphones at least
- Use RF safe phone cases like Waves Protect
And while 4 out of 5 is completely on you we can help you with one. Each phone case has an internal layer of special Waves Protect material that redirects the radiation away from your head and body. The opened part in the top allows you to stay online, so Waves Protect does not interfere with the GSM/CDMA, WI-FI or GPS signal reception.
