'City council chambers and local officials in the US are facing the outcry of residents frightened by the next generation 5G wireless communications which by all accounts, will be taking over neighborhoods soon.
A resident in Montgomery County, Maryland raised her voice to ask local officials “Why can’t we do a real health assessment here and find out what the real health risks are — to our children?” at a public meeting held at the county .
What are the risks? More to the point what is 5G?
What is 5G?
The 5th generation wireless systems (5G) are new network technologies designed to make your cell phone and similar wireless devices become super-duper powerful and fast.
Scheduled to be deployed from 2018 and made commercially available in 2020  we are told 5G is expected to support at least 100 billion devices and up to 100 times faster than current 4G technology. (4G is already about 10 times faster than 3G).
The 5G tech will employ low-(0.6 GHz - 3.7 GHz), mid-(3.7 – 24 GHz), and high-band frequencies (24 GHz and higher). The “high-band” frequencies largely consist of millimeter waves (MMWs), a type of electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths within 1- 10 millimeters and frequencies ranging from 30 to 300 GHz.
Health Hazards from Cell Phone Technology “Beyond Measure”
Cell phones operate essentially by sending and receiving radiofrequency radiation from their antennas to a nearby cell tower.
Thousands of independent studies link Radiofrequency radiation exposures from cell phones to a number of very serious diseases such as; Cancer , Infertility , Cardiovascular Diseases , Birth defects , Memory Problems , Sleep Disorders  and so on.
5G Technology Comes With Increased RF Radiation Exposure
These millimeter waves (MMWs) as used by the 5G network can transmit large amounts of data within a short period of time. But over short distances and also, the other big issue is that the signal is poorly transmitted through solid materials.
This means massive transmission of MMW will be needed.
Many new antennas will be needed. We are told full-scale implementation may require at least one antenna for every 10 to 12 houses in urban areas.'
