5G Roll out in Australia despite Global Health Concerns – Wifi Pollution.Uncategorized
There is a new technology in town in our fast paced every growing technology driven society; 5G. Being sold to you as faster, more efficient, a ‘technological breakthrough.’ However, there is one small issue… There have been no investigations published into exposure safety in human beings amid global safety concerns.
5G is much faster than 4G. To carry this enormous amount of data in the same time frame as the 4G network, 5 G will be using high frequency radio waves of 30 GHz – 300 GHz which increases the speed & intensity of the signal (and radiation exposure). To put this in relative perspective 4G is < 6GHz.
In April 2018, the International Society for Doctors in Environment petitioned for a stop to the 5G roll out stating in their report on the matter:
“… specific preliminary evidence showed the exposure to frequencies over 30GHz could alter gene expression, stimulate cell proliferation, alter the functions of cell membrane and neuro – muscular systems and are able to modulate the synthesis of proteins involved in inflammatory and immunologic processes, with possible systemic effects.
WOW. The scary part about this is that the telecom companies can roll this out on your doorstep without asking for your consent.
As it stands, I usually carry my phone with me everywhere, this little device that constantly emits but I’m thinking twice after the World Health Organisation listed radio frequency from mobile phone use as a ‘2B classification human carcinogen’ (possible cancer causing agent, 2011). Since the 2011 2B classification, even more evidence is accumulating with links to cancer onset, neurological diseases & reproductive challenges. Yikes.
Some of the most commonly used sources of radiofrequency radiation include: Wifi routers, laptops, tablets , microwaves, MRI’s , Cell phone base stations, cordless telephones.
If a company installed a device emitting more radiation that has been considered safe to human beings directly outside your home wouldn’t you like to be notified of it’s potential risks and the fact that it had been installed?
If this technology could potentially affect fertility (men & women), threaten agriculture, food production (by killing bees, birds and livestock), cause neurological disturbances in kids and increase cancer risk .. If this device was right outside your bedroom window emitting possibly unsafe levels of radiation you would have a right to be informed. Right? Not according to telecom companies.
The global concern alone expressed by scientists, researchers, political figures should be enough to immediately halt the roll out. But it hasn’t.
Unfortunately, with the recent roll out of 5G in Australia & the suspect crocodilian loopholes around citizens being consulted, we apparently have no choice (Telecommunications Act 1996) . Let’s get informed Australia. Together. Lecture by Professor Marin Pall.
5G is quite possibly not the big technological advancement we are being sold.
There are 3 issues here
- Possible health impacts: Direct family & community health risks identified globally and there has been ZERO community consultation about it. This is being rolled out under our noses.
- The evidence suggesting 5G is harmful to the environment, and human health.
- Telecommunications Authorities not disclosing the lack of evidence about long term health risks + letting this go ahead with the plan to install these boxes outside our doorsteps.
5G is perhaps one of the most irresponsible global health human health experiments of our time. With limited and sketchy data to support it’s safety, and no long term studies available, realistically rolling out 5G at this point is a hazardous human health experiment. We are effectively becoming guinea pigs. Families/communities need to be informed and aware of what is unfolding under their noses & are at the very least entitled to the basic liberty of community consultation and choice.

Global leaders are already taking charge with Brussels stopping it’s 5G roll out, but why isn’t the rest of the global community following suit?
In the Netherlands, over 150 birds died suddenly after a 5G mast was installed beside their park. Veterinary assessments concluded that the birds were in good condition before they suddenly passed away. Article here
In Switzerland in 2017, a herd of cows collapsed in a ravine that had nearby 5G testing.
Brussels have halted their plans to move forward with the 5G technology with Environment minister Celine Fremault saying :
“I cannot welcome such technology if the radiation standards, which must protect the citizen, are not respected, 5G or not.. The people of Brussels are not guinea pigs whose health I can sell at a profit. We cannot leave anything to doubt,”
The telecom, wireless industries feeding us the old adage that the lower wattage at high frequency doesn’t harm is ignoring public concern and dismissing the fact that the radiation exposure of 5G networks is higher than global experts are comfortable with.
Sydney, this is happening outside our doorsteps. Are you a ryde resident? Well – This has been rolled out under our noses with Ryde Mayor Jerome Laxale saying in Jan 2019
“Under the telecommunications act it’s basically open-slather for these companies to install these small cell devices in the suburbs,It is a notification process, rather than a consultation process.” – Abc News January 2019
“However, unlike the larger towers that generally require council or planning approval, the small cell boxes can be placed on power poles without any approval process under the Federal telecommunications act.” – Abc news, January 2019
So we aren’t asking you we’re telling you citizens of Ryde.
Basically, communities have no say, some don’t even know it’s happening. There has been no community consultation into the matter, despite global health concerns. Residents must be informed about their civil liberties being completely bypassed.
Where to go from here: What can you do?
What can we do to limit our exposure & protect our families?
- Engage with your Community: Start a conversation with your local community. Stay aware, as a collective.
- Sign The Petition
- Protective measures at home: Turn off your wifi routers as often as possible, especially at night when your family & loved ones are getting some sleep.
- Turn off your phone, or Airoplane mode as often as possible.
Until we know more.
Keep your devices OFF your body. Please don’t put them in your pockets, especially around reproductive organs or your skull. 3G, 4G still – phones are still emitting radiation.
Nicole Bijlsma Naturopathic researcher and boss babe presenting modern environmental research in Australia, has a lot to say about electromagnetic radiation, and how you can limit your exposure in Nicole’s Building Biology article on Electromagnetic fields.
One of the most simple & effective tips of Nicole’s is to put cell phones & devices into Flight mode when using & turn off your wifi router at night.
If we’re not careful this could be a doozy Australia.
There is no doubt that electromagnetic radiation can affect our health in general, but HOW MUCH? & Why more? Is a speedier internet connection really worth it considering the potential risks this poses? The new 5G roll out is taking radiation to a whole new level, it’s invisible, constant, and it’s inside our bedrooms.
Stay conscious everyone.
I’m all for technololgy and efficiency, but technology that has been classified as ecologically safe after independent testing, and after that an informed & consenting public.
Until we know more…
