1) One of the many problems associated with 5G is that some of the frequencies the telecoms want to use could interfere with weather forecasting. This is a major topic in a conference occurring over the next couple of weeks.

“Prominent scientists have already rung the alarm bells on the debut of 5G wireless networks, which promise customers faster internet speeds. The worry is that the rollout could inadvertently throw off weather forecasting, they say, because 5G networks are planning to use a frequency band very close to the one satellites use to observe water vapor. That interference could cost lives and fortunes when it comes to preparing for disastrous weather events….
Negotiations begin on Monday, October 28th, and will run through November 22nd. It’ll also tackle the growing demand for radio spectrum used to provide internet connection to “moving targets” like planes and ships. The last conference in 2015 was marked with tough debates on which frequencies to earmark for drones….
Still, even if less stringent interference limits are adopted in Egypt, the worst-case scenarios that meteorologists are worried about won’t come about immediately. 5G hasn’t been widely deployed because the technology and infrastructure to make good on its promises just aren’t there yet. But that tech is slowly being built up, and more developments loom on the horizon. “In the future, we’re going to have 6G, we’re going to have all sorts of people chasing a spectrum,” English says. That’s one reason why experts are placing a lot of weight on this 5G decision in Egypt. The outcome of this battle, English says, will be an early signal of how much world leaders value science and could show whether they will be willing to protect their science in the future.”
2) Dr. Ronald Kostoff has written a paper that explains some of the shortfalls of studies that have been done, e.g. many do not take into consideration the pulsing and modulating signals used in wireless devices which would mean more adverse effects. He also provides info about studies, many done years ago, about the biological effects of exposure to milliwaves, like those that are associated with 5G technology. The report itself is only 13 pages long. The rest is documentation and bibliography. A very interesting read and one that should be kept for reference.
ADVERSE EFFECTS OF WIRELESS RADIATION
“This monograph identifies adverse effects of wireless radiation as reported in the premier biomedical literature. It shows that most of the reported laboratory experiments are not designed to elicit the more severe adverse effects reflective of the real-life operating environment in which wireless radiation is embedded. Many do not include pulsing and modulation of the carrier signal, and most do not account for synergistic effects of other toxic stimuli acting in concert with the wireless radiation. It also presents evidence that the nascent 5G mobile networking technology will affect not only the skin and eyes, as commonly believed, but will have systemic adverse effects as well. The monograph includes a substantial bibliography of papers that present these adverse effects, and shows that what has been reported is the tip of the iceberg of the full spectrum of potential adverse effects from wireless radiation.”
” The common ‘wisdom’ being presented in the literature and on the media is that, if there are adverse impacts resulting from 5G, the main impacts will be focused on near-surface phenomena, such as skin cancer, cataracts, and other skin conditions. However,there is evidence that biological responses to millimeterwave irradiation can be initiated within the skin, and the subsequent systemic signaling in the skin can result in physiological effects on the nervous system, heart, and immune system [Russel, 2018].” pg. 10
3) Apple is planning to introduce new cell phone that will have both 4G and 5G technology.
Apple plans to ship 80 million 5G phones in 2020 – report
“Although Apple’s entry into the 5G handset market will come after that of its rivals, the iPhone maker expects to make a splash next year, according to a new report by Nikkei.
Sources told the outlet that Apple has set aggressive sales targets for its premium smartphone models in 2020, with plans to ship 80 million 5G iPhones.
According to a separate Bloomberg report, the iPhone maker aims to ship 200 million handsets next year, and introduce four new models that could include both 4G and 5G devices, though plans have not been finalized….
Commercial 5G networks are still in their infancy in most countries, including the U.S. where service remains restricted to select parts of major cities and more widespread 5G coverage isn’t expected until 2020. Still, multiple 5G handsets are available in the U.S., like models from Samsung, LG, Motorola, and One Plus, though it appears adoption so far has been limited.”

“But what we need above all is critical citizens, who can spot the difference between technical progress and consumer foolishness: citizens who, as both voters and consumers, remember that democracy once meant rule of the people, not ruling the people.” Dr. Karl Hecht
