Canadian Doctors and Former Microsoft Canada President Warn About Grave Health Risks of 5G

The telecom industry has provided no scientific evidence that 5G is safe and there is research that already proves it isn’t (see 1, 2).  Because of this, some government leaders have already declared moratoriums on installation (see 1, 2, 3).

Additional warnings about 5G have come from a variety of sources including:

  1. Meteorologists who fear that 5G frequencies will greatly reduce their ability to accurately predict the weather.
  2. Utility companies fear that 5G will interfere with their already problematic Smart Grids and Smart Meters.
  3. Security experts fear cyberattacks on the easily hacked 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies could lead to catastrophic consequences (see 1, 2).

Unfortunately, this hasn’t stopped 5G installation everywhere – including in Canada – despite publicized opposition from doctors, scientists, and former Microsoft Canada president, Frank Clegg.

If the telecom industry won’t even defend 5G, shouldn’t we be concerned about anyone who does?

Looking Forward to 5G? You’d Better Have an Unlimited Data Plan

5G Speed Tests in Australia

There’s been a lot of excitement about 5G technology coming to the iPhone next year, but despite all of the hype, we’ve been a bit skeptical about how much this is going to matter to the average iPhone user, especially in the short term. Put simply, do you really need your iPhone to be able to transfer data at gigabit speeds?

However, there’s also a dark side to 5G that many users probably haven’t thought about: being able to move data at faster speeds means that you’ll potentially use a lot more of it.

In a new report for CNET, Daniel Van Boom took a closer look at just exactly what the impact of this will be, after conducting a series of tests in the parts of Sydney, Australia where Telstra currently offers solid 5G service.

Van Boom reported that 5G was fast — really fast. On his test device, which was an LG V50 ThinQ, he was able to download a 2.04 GB game in 54 seconds, as compared to the almost six minutes that it would have taken on his office broadband. A 1h 43m movie took 92 seconds. 5G Speed tests showed download speeds pushing close to 500 Mbps, much faster than many smartphones can achieve even over the fastest Wi-Fi connections — for example, even Apple’s 2018 iPhones typically top out at around 400 Mbps over Wi-Fi.

The Problem

The problem, however is that these kinds of speeds will suck through your data plan like a firehose. Van Boom noted that after only 25 minutes, after running several speed tests, including downloading two movies from Netflix and a game, he got a text message telling him that he’d used 50% of his 20 GB data allotment. While 20 GB “isn’t an unusually small amount” in Australia, it’s actually quite high compared to plans that are typically available in North America.

In fact, even so-called “unlimited” plans come with a catch — they won’t charge you for using more data, but you’ll typically find yourself slowed down to speeds below 1 mbps once you exceed the cap, meaning that you’d quickly lose the benefits of 5G in a pretty painful way — it would be like switching from a Bugatti to a bicycle.

While the problem isn’t entirely a new one — some of us can remember how LTE required higher data caps in much the same way, the speeds offered by full 5G coverage are orders of magnitude higher than not only LTE, but than what most typical home broadband networks will provide, so it’s going to be even more tempting to download large videos and games when you’re on the go rather than waiting until you get home, and to make matters worse, there’s a very good chance that most public Wi-Fi hotspots, while free of data caps, aren’t going to offer even a fraction of the performance that 5G will.

Your Mileage May Vary

Not surprisingly, however, 5G is going to have its growing pains, and while Van Boom’s stats showed how fast it will be at optimal speeds, he found quite a bit of variation, and the range of 5G is much more limited than typical LTE networks, so it won’t be hard to find yourself in an area of poor coverage simply by walking a single city block. Still, even the slowest speeds that Van Boom encountered in his travels came in at around 50 Mbps, which beat out typical LTE speeds in Australia, and most real-world LTE performance on U.S. carriers as well.

Although we can hope that the faster speeds offered by 5G may prompt the carriers to offer higher data caps, we’re really not holding our breath, especially in light of the fact that AT&T is already talking about charging more for higher 5G speeds.

With 5G rollouts happening at a similarly slow pace in the U.S., there’s a good chance that coverage is going to be spotty even in major urban areas, and mostly non-existent outside of them — current estimates suggest that only 14 million Americans will have access to 5G at all by the end of 2020. So while by all reports Apple will be offering 5G in at least some of its iPhones next year, it’s unclear how much of a selling feature this will really be for most users.

5G looks like it’s the next best thing in tech, but it’s really a Trojan horse for harming humanity

Many so-called “experts” are claiming that it’ll be a huge step forward for innovation in everything from manufacturing and transportation, to medicine and beyond. But in reality, 5G technology represents an existential threat to humanity – a “phony war” on the people who inhabit this planet we call Earth, and all in the name of “progress.”

Writing for GreenMedInfo, Claire Edwards, a former editor and trainer in intercultural writing for the United Nations (U.N.), warns that 5G might end up being the straw that breaks the camel’s back in terms of the state of public health. Electro-hypersensitivity (EHS), she says, could soon become a global pandemic as a result of 5G implementation, with people developing severe health symptoms that inhibit their ability to live normal lives.

This “advanced” technology, Edwards warns, involves the use of special “laser-like beams of electromagnetic radiation,” or EMR, that are basically blasted “from banks of thousands of tiny antennas” installed all over the place, typically on towers and poles located within just a couple hundred feet of one another.

While she still worked for the U.N., Edwards tried to warn her superiors about the dangers of 5G EMR, only to have these petitions fall on deaf ears. This prompted her to contact the U.N. Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, who then pushed the World Health Organization (WHO) to take a closer look into the matter – though this ended up being a dead end as well.

Elon Musk is planning to launch 4,425 5G satellites in to Earth’s orbit THIS JUNE

Edwards worries particularly about 5G implementation in space, as existing space law is so woefully inadequate that countries all around the world, including the U.S., will likely blanket the atmosphere in 5G equipment, turning our entire planet into an EMR hell.

Elon Musk of Tesla fame is one such purveyor of 5G technology who’s planning to launch an astounding 4,425 5G satellites in to Earth’s orbit by June 2019. This means that, in a matter of just a few months, 5G will be everywhere and completely inescapable.

“There are no legal limits on exposure to EMR,” Edwards writes.

“Conveniently for the telecommunications industry, there are only non-legally enforceable guidelines such as those produced by the grandly named International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection, which turns out to be like the Wizard of Oz, just a tiny little NGO in Germany that appoints its own members, none of whom is a medical doctor or environmental expert.”

Edwards sees 5G implementation as eventually leading to a “catastrophe for all life in Earth” in the form of “the last great extinction.” She likens it to a “biological experiment” representing the “most heinous manifestation of hubris and greed in human history.”

There’s already evidence to suggest that 5G implementation in a few select cities across the United States, including in Sacramento, California, is causing health problems for people who live near 5G equipment. At firehouses where 5G equipment was installed, for instance, firefighters are reporting things like memory problems and confusion.

Some people are also reporting reproductive issues like miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as nosebleeds and insomnia, all stemming from the presence of 5G transmitters.

Edwards encourages folks to sign The Stop 5G Appeal if they care about protecting people, animals, insects, and the planet from this impending 5G assault.

“Our newspapers are now casually popularizing the meme that human extinction would be a good thing, but when the question becomes not rhetorical but real, when it’s your life, your child, your community, your environment that is under immediate threat, can you really subscribe to such a suggestion?” Edwards asks.

5G: The Communications Key to Autonomous Driving

As more self-driving cars hit the road in the coming years, sophisticated communications systems will rely on a fast, reliable network that’s capable of being a data superhighway.

Self-driving or autonomous cars are a hot topic, but the road to autonomous driving is curvy and complicated. It’s full of blind turns as engineers, automakers, regulators and data scientists map out a radically different future for automobiles.

That future is fast approaching. In January, the BMW Group, Intel and Mobileye said a fleet of about 40 of their autonomous test vehicles will be on roads by the second half of 2017.  Intel already has a fleet of vehicles roaming the streets of Chandler, Ariz., as well as autonomous driving garages or “labs on wheels” operating in Germany, Oregon and California.

And those test vehicles will help each other learn.

Often when thinking about a self-driving car, it’s easy to consider it a singular thing — like the occasional driverless Google research car on the highway. It’s a cool car out there, but it has seemingly nothing to do with the driving experience of anyone else on the road.

But as more autonomous cars come on the scene, that notion of singularity will change. Autonomous cars cannot exist in vacuum — the more cars on the road, the more developed, safe and sophisticated the autonomous infrastructure will become.

“Autonomous cars require us to consider many things previously thought impossible,” said Kevin Hattendorf, a director of product marketing in Intel’s Automated Driving Group (ADG). “And a lot of it hinges on a strong communications system.”

While each car is an individual vehicle, it will actually become part of a complex ecosystem where communication — how cars talk to other cars, to road-side infrastructure, the network and finally data centers — is key.

Unlocking the true potential of automated driving requires a reliable, robust and pervasive wireless network. Hattendorf said these requirements are the basis of 5G networks, which are expected to become available starting in 2020, but trails are already underway.

Intel’s GO In-Vehicle Development Platforms for Automated Driving, the first 5G-ready platform for the auto industry, is designed for automakers eager to develop and test a wide range of use cases and applications ahead of 2020.

What is 5G?

Simply put, 5G is the next “G” or “Generation” of wireless networks. It will let more data move at higher speeds with lower latency and ultra-reliability, and it will be essential in supporting the billions of connected devices —everything from smart buildings to internet-connected wineries.

“The big difference with 5G is that when you start to talk about “autonomy” and factories, cars and hospitals thinking for themselves, they will rely on split-second connectivity to do so – with no room for error,” said Aicha Evans is senior vice president and general manager of the Communication and Devices Group at Intel Corporation, in February just ahead of Mobile World Congress.

Autonomous cars, said Hattendorf, will crunch through terabytes of data per car, every day. They rely on a slew of sensors — cameras, lidar and radar — that identify information about the environment around the vehicle. Cameras might see a person, for example, but radar can sense depth, recognizing the difference between a real human and, say, a cardboard cutout of a person.

The whole system must work in tandem, and each piece requires a significant amount of compute power and data synthesization. The accumulated collected data enables them to absorb and learn from aggregated experiences and environments.

“All this data is then collected and sent to the data center,” said Hattendorf. The data center intakes all the data and, using deep learning and machine learning protocols and tools, creates the instruction set that is then communicated to the vehicles, teaching them what’s what in the world around them and what should be done, how the cars should react.  Cars start to recognize and differentiate moving objects — a human, a dog, a ball rolling in the street — because they’ve learned from aggregate experiences.

That learning also helps cars understand when an anomaly occurs. If, say, a giraffe starts walking across the street, the car can recognize the anomaly, send the information back to the data center, which can then create a new set of rules.

There are many data-hungry steps along the way. The car requires an in-vehicle compute platform that can respond in real time with an in-vehicle human-machine interface (HMI). It needs a way to connect to other vehicles, to communicate ‘hey, I’ve learned this, you should learn it too’ as well as sending information to the cloud, or data center, where the information can help cars understand everything from upcoming stoplight and recent collision to running dog and galloping giraffe.

How Do We Avoid the Dog?

So much data bouncing around will require a sophisticated communications network that can handle it all. That’s where 5G comes in.

Prakash Kartha, responsible for Strategic Marketing for Connected Cars, said 5G is like the data superhighway for autonomous cars. Current LTE networks, he said, are incapable of handling the job.

It’s a hard thing to think about so much data traveling at massive speeds, so Kartha broke it down.

“Think about a pipe,” he said. “You can have a pipe that’s thin and long, or you can have a pipe that’s thick and short.” Smaller amounts of data can fit through the long pipe, but it’ll take longer to travel. He said if more data is traveling at a much higher frequency via a wider, shorter pipe, more stuff gets through the pipe, but the range will be shorter.

For the car navigating the streets, real-time data (captured via sensors) will dictate operations through the in-vehicle compute platform.

But for long-term learning, said Kartha, cars will upload and download information intermittently in opportunistic bursts and data showers — while at a gas station, parking lot, intersections or at home. That’s when a car will be able to upload huge amounts of data.

Many cars out there in the world are already collecting data over LTE — think Ubers, Google cars, or BMWs.

“But ask yourself — do you have the same connectivity experience today in an LTE-connected car that you have on an iPhone? Now consider the data needs of autonomous driving. The LTE network today is not usable for handling that kind of data,” said Kartha, who works with teams developing new millimeter wave technology that will allow big bursts of data to be transferred quickly.

This is where 5G comes in and it doesn’t stop there. When sensors lack line of sight, or during adverse weather conditions, lower frequency 5G radios will provide, said Kartha, “an added blanket of protection” by communicating (reliably and fast) with nearby vehicles and road-side infrastructure.

What Happens in the Cloud?

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich recently said each autonomous car is expected to generate up 4,000 GB of data per day, every day — that’s the data equivalent of almost 3,000 people. Add to that the estimated 50 billion other “things” expected to be wirelessly connected by 2020 — the “cloud” is going to be overloaded, right?

No, said Hattendorf, quick to point out there’s no single world cloud — but instead data centers will come in different shapes and sizes.

“Companies will have different strategies,” he said. “Some will say, ‘You know what? The data that we collect is going to be so important, I’m going to own it. I’m not going to outsource anything so I’m going to build my own data center.’”

Other companies might have data centers distributed geographically while others, he said, might tap into capabilities provided by a third-party data center.

Regardless, these data centers will need the 5G network to move data, analyze it, create algorithms and send those learnings back to the car.

While widespread adoption of self-driving cars is a ways out, construction of the data superhighway is well underway.
