      Hi Marques
      Has there been any talk regarding our health...I've not looked into it however having all these nodes around us with the exposure to the 5G waves, is it/will it be safe?

      @Daddymooch people are so ignorant to think all this increased radiation won't affect them. How are people so lacking in curiosity or intelligence! I'm glad you've don't the research- keep spreading the facts.

      Definitely not go try to get access to scientific literature on the effects radio towers 3g and 4g and the effects it’s had on male fertility. 5g is 10x stronger and more damaging.

    What really annoys me is I how sprint only sells the oneplus 7 pro 5G, and not the 4G LTE version. It starts at 840$ and 5G isn't even available in my area. I wish I could just switch to T-Mobile but my whole family is on sprint and it's more convenient. It's lame that they expect me to pay 170$ more for an option that isn't even available near me.

    What about the extreme radiation, why did 5G never go thru normal testing as it relates to public health. IT'S NOT GOOD FOR US HOMEY

  • TpT16
    TpT16 3 дні тому

    tl;dr 5g wont give living things cancer because the waves dont carry enough energy to actually cause cancer(thru a process called ionization, where electrons are essentially ripped from the atom)
    more explanation under

    • TpT16
      TpT16 3 дні тому

      ultraviolet rays, x-rays and gamma rays cause ionization(ripping electrons from the atom) and that can cause cancer if exposed to human cells
      on the other hand radio waves, infrared waves and visible light doesn't harm us because they don't ionize the stuff that makes up our bodies because the waves arent energetic enough to ionize our cells when in direct exposure
      and about the rays hitting us directly, the rays longer than visible light would just be absorbed as heat(infrared being the most dangerous in this case)

    • TpT16
      TpT16 3 дні тому

      the only wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation that causes *acute* cell mutation(tumour) are those that are shorter than visible light (ultraviolet rays, x-rays and gamma rays)

    physics is holding us back.. this higher frequency ranges is going to be a problem for advancement in technology. There is no way we are going to blanket the US for example with 5g nodes.. What you will see is most major cities will be under 5G and outside its still going to be at 4G. We will see probably 4G be even more efficient.. with data compression and such.. You will NOT see any more major improvements in general with 5G unless companies allow you to install a node in your own house... bu then why bother because everyone probably would have internet service at home that could be running at Fiber speeds!

    Boycott 5G. Go cook something in your microwave.. Simply put that is what millimeter waves are. These are energy directed weapon if on purpose or not. But lets face it the push for it without testing is a bad sign. They already know what the results will be. I love tech. But I'm not down with 5G. Watch! ear cancer will be on a steep increase. This is not hysteria, or exaggeration.. Look into the science behind it. Stay away from the propaganda outlets and ThemTube channels. I think this is one. All communication technicians and anyone who knows about frequencies will tell you they don't want this in their neighborhoods. The human body and millimeter waves don't get along. You made the analogy to microwaves yet missed the mark.... MICROWAVES cook. Yet you wish it was everywhere right now? Your not as quick as I took you for or you got paid to say this. At any-rate. Channel blocked. no time for stupid or sell outs.
