When we consider whether or not 5G could be harmful to our health, it may be helpful to know a few facts of which we are certain. 5G will operate in the millimeter microwave (MMW) range of the electromagnetic field (EMF) spectrum. That's technical but means the bandwidth is 24 - 30 GHz (gigahertz), a wavelength associated with non-ionizing radiation (NIR). Ionizing radiation (IR) includes high-energy x-rays and gamma rays which can be deadly. Because NIR includes visible light and infrared light, scientists previously did not worry as much about this type of radiation. But studies conducted within the last decade have demonstrated that continuous exposure--like what is associated with WiFi and cell phones--can be just as harmful over time.
On January 13, 2022, the United States Supreme Court struck down the Biden Administration's mandate which required employees of large businesses to be vaccinated against COVID or undergo weekly testing and wearing of a mask indoors while working. The court said the administration overstepped its authority when they imposed an Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) vaccine-or-test rule on U.S. businesses with at least 100 employees. Unfortunately, in a related 5-4 ruling the court voted to deprive healthcare professionals of their right to choose and is forcing them to comply with medical system mandates or lose their job.

The electromagnetic field (EMF) is the spectrum of energy governing electricity and magnetism. It turns out that electricity and magnets are related to each other. Part of the EMF spectrum covers radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet light, x-rays, and gamma rays. Gamma rays and x-rays are ionizing radiation (IR) and the rest are categorized as non-ionizing radiation (NIR). IR is the most dangerous to health. IR has enough energy to knock electrons out of the orbit of atoms. This creates an ion which becomes a positively or negatively charged particle. This means the ion is unbalanced and out of harmony with itself. It will seek to repair its status by stealing an electron or two from somewhere else. These ions are also known as free radicals. IR can convert water in the nucleus into the free radical hydoxyl (OH). A certain number of free radicals are necessary in the body, but when we get too many at once, they can cause havoc and harm. IR can also break the covalent bonds in the DNA helix, causing mutations.
