Viral infections and radiation sickness exhibit similar symptoms. China and Italy, where the most coronavirus cases are being detected, have lead the way in 5G tower installations. Few countries across the globe have banned 5G towers. Could coronavirus be misdiagnosed as radiation exposure from our need for high-speed Internet? We’ve outlined key facts and information for you here, but as always, we encourage you to do your own research into this topic.
A petition on Change.org, signed by approximately 50,000 people is asking for the halt of 5G towers in the U.S. Currently, 21 U.S. cities have had 5G towers installed. Overall, there are more than 400 petition search results worldwide with hundreds of thousands of signatures to stop 5G. Scientific authorities and people across the globe have come out against 5G.

Radiation sickness is illness and symptoms resulting from excessive exposure to ionizing radiation. There are two main types of radiation: nonionizing and ionizing.
- Nonionizing radiation comes in the form of light, radio waves, microwaves and radar. These forms usually don’t cause tissue damage.
- Ionizing radiation causes immediate effects on human tissue. X-rays, gamma rays, and particle bombardment (neutron beam, electron beam, protons, mesons, and others) give off ionizing radiation. This type of radiation is used for medical testing and treatment. It is also used in industrial and manufacturing purposes, weapons and weapons development, and more.
5G wireless technology is a form of non-ionizing radiation. Non-ionizing radiation is relatively low-energy radiation that doesn’t have enough energy to ionize atoms or molecules. It’s located at the low end of the electromagnetic spectrum. Although considered less dangerous than ionizing radiation, overexposure to non-ionizing radiation can cause health issues. 5G is a cellular technology that requires the installation of 800,000 or more new cell antenna sites in the U.S. close to where we live, work and play, according to Scientific American.
Cell phones emit radiofrequency radiation (radio waves), a form of non-ionizing radiation, from their antennas. Parts of the body nearest to the antenna can absorb this energy, according to Cancer.gov. Over time, the number of cell phone calls per day, the length of each call, and the amount of time people use cell phones have increased.
Radiation exposure can cause low white blood cell counts, which increases the risk for infections. Many things affect how radiation therapy affects the immune system, such as: The total radiation dose.
Mayo Clinic cites symptoms of radiation sickness as:
- Weakness, fatigue, fainting, confusion.
- Bleeding from the nose, mouth, gums, and rectum.
- Bruising, skin burns, open sores on the skin, sloughing of skin.
- Diarrhea, bloody stool.
- Hair loss.
- Inflammation of exposed areas (redness, tenderness, swelling, bleeding).
Symptoms of viral infection include:
- Fever and chills.
- A runny or stuffy nose.
- Cough, sore throat, or hoarseness.
- Headache, or pain and pressure around your eyes.
- Muscle aches and joint pain.
- Shortness of breath or wheezing.
- Abdominal pain, cramps, and diarrhea.
- Nausea, vomiting, or loss of appetite.
More than 500 studies have found harmful biologic or health effects from exposure to RFR at intensities too low to cause significant heating, according to Scientific American in an article entitled “We have no reason to believe 5G is safe.”
Citing this large body of research, more than 240 scientists who have published peer-reviewed research on the biologic and health effects of nonionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF) signed the International EMF Scientist Appeal, which calls for stronger exposure limits. The appeal makes the following assertions:
“Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plant and animal life.”
The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified RFR as “possibly carcinogenic to humans” in 2011. Last year, a $30 million study conducted by the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) found “clear evidence” that two years of exposure to cell phone RFR increased cancer in male rats and damaged DNA in rats and mice of both sexes. The Ramazzini Institute in Italy replicated the key finding of the NTP using a different carrier frequency and much weaker exposure to cell phone radiation over the life of the rats.
Nonetheless, without conducting a formal risk assessment or a systematic review of the research on RFR health effects, the FDA recently reaffirmed the FCC’s 1996 exposure limits in a letter to the FCC, stating that the agency had “concluded that no changes to the current standards are warranted at this time,” and that “NTP’s experimental findings should not be applied to human cell phone usage.” The letter stated that “the available scientific evidence to date does not support adverse health effects in humans due to exposures at or under the current limits.”
5G pundits contend that the new 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.
One of a group of proteins that help protect cells from stresses such as heat, cold, and low amounts of oxygen or glucose (sugar). Stress proteins help other proteins function in normal cells and may be present at high levels in cancer cells. Blocking the activity of a stress protein called HSP90 is being studied in the treatment of cancer, according to Cancer.gov.
In fact, Wuhan was one of the initial 16 cities selected to trial 5G back in 2018. Wuhan City, the capital of Hubei, is expected to have 10,000 5G base stations by the end of 2019. China Unicom will begin testing 5G network in 16 cities including Beijing, Tianjin, Qingdao, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Wuhan, Guiyang, Chengdu, Shenzhen, Fuzhou, Zhengzhou, and Shenyang. China Mobile will conduct external field test and set up more than a hundred 5G base stations in each of the following five cities: Hangzhou, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Suzhou, and Wuhan.
These 21 cities have access to the 5G network: Atlanta; Austin, Texas; Charlotte, N.C.; Dallas; Houston; Indianapolis; Jacksonville, Fla.; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; Louisville, Ky.; Nashville, Tenn.; New Orleans; New York City; Oklahoma City; Orlando, Fla.; Raleigh, N.C.; San Antonio; San Diego; San Francisco; San Jose, Calif.; and Waco, Texas, according to CNN.com.
NPR reported that only a few other countries — Japan, Australia and New Zealand — have barred Huawei 5G deals; many world powers remain undecided. American officials cast the race to 5G as a quintessential national security competition, rather than a commercial one.
In July 2019, Reuters reported Italy’s biggest phone group Telecom Italia (TIM) and rival Vodafone agreed on Friday to merge their mobile tower infrastructure and to jointly roll out 5G in Italy. Telecom Italia (TIM) has already deployed pre-standard “5G” in Rome and Turin and recently added Naples. TIM will further extend 5G service to another six Italian cities, including Milan, Bologna, Verona, Florence, Matera, and Bari. That will also include 30 tourist destinations, 50 industrial districts, and 30 specific projects for big businesses, with speeds of up to 2G b/sec. TIM plans to cover 120 Italian cities within two years, or 22% of the population, it said in a statement.
