The Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR, of a phone shows how much energy from radio frequency waves is absorbed by body parts – head, torso, whole body, etc.
The idea is that phones can be certified as “safe”, while also allowing some sort of comparison between different phones. In reality, the whole thing is a bit of a bad joke.
Even the FCC admits SAR is a pretty useless rating!
Join me for another fascinating look inside our modern “Wireless Wonderland”!
As if all the controversy about 5G and health isn’t bad enough, now there’s a new saga: 5G vs Airplanes!
Specifically, mid-band 5G vs radar altimeters.
So, what’s the deal?
It turns out it’s utter insanity…
But then, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised!
Ah, 5G… It’s a mixture of new technologies, the most “interesting” being mmWave, or millimeter wave.
If you’re wondering if a particular phone actually HAS mmWave, good luck figuring it out.
Even worse, in most areas it’s darn near impossible to find out what flavor of 5G is being used: Is it mmWave, or not?!
Good luck with that one, too.
And to top it all off, it doesn’t really matter anyway because even official government bodies are really looking at 5G and EXISTING wireless tech, and starting to get worried…
A friend recently bought a new 5G smartphone. She was worried about the ‘5G’ part especially. Two problems:
First, there is no 5G where we live, so I just turned it off.
Second, the 5G Samsung phone only supports lower frequencies than our local 4G network – IOW, no millimeter wave!
Of course, it’s about more than just frequency. In reality, it’s about way more than just the technologies involved.
There is a hidden danger to worrying TOO MUCH about the effects of our wireless wonderland…
I finally managed to read Arthur Firstenberg’s book, The Invisible Rainbow.
The well-documented book chronicles the multitude of effects of everything from the first telegraph lines and electric lighting to modern day wireless systems. The data is plentiful and the effects are… well, not very good.
But I found myself with more questions than answers..
For example, why did 5 children get cancer at 1 school in Spain after the first digital cellular tower was turned on? What about the other schools or hospitals with antennae next to them? They were all over the world!
At the same time, it’s hard to discount the stories as just, “correlation does not equal causation”. At this point, there’s simply too much data out there to ignore it or try to explain it away.
If you’re looking for answers or solutions, this book doesn’t have any. What it does have is a fascinating look at the LONG history of the negative effects of various types of EMFs on human, plant, and animal life – over literally hundreds of years.
If you’re worried that only ‘crazy people’ think that 5G may be dangerous to your health, don’t be.
Just one week ago, a new paper was published by a well-respected epidemiologist. He reviews past studies of various wireless technologies and asks quite a few interesting questions about the safety of 5G as well as current wireless tech.
In the end, his opinion is that as with a viral outbreak, it’s better to be safe than sorry. It’s nice to see more people stepping forward and expressing their concerns based on available data.
Let’s hope more people do the same!
The latest news about 5G isn’t exactly flattering.
After dealing with nothing but hyped-up descriptions of the Technological Wonderland that awaited us, now even mainstream techie news seems to be all about bashing 5G instead of promoting it.
In short, reality sunk in.
I suspect we’ll see some rather substantial evolutionary changes in wireless service instead of the revolutionary changes we’ve been promised – and that’s not necessarily a bad thing!
Shungite is a stone that many people use to protect themselves from EMFs such as WiFi, 5G, and so on. But does it really work?
Well, it turns out that most of the information available on the internet appears to be dead wrong!
I do a few simple tests in this video to show that no, shungite does not appear to absorb EMFs – it reflects or partially blocks them only when it’s directly between the antenna and your body.
Well, okay, but there are still tons of people who swear by it! What’s going on here?
Should you keep using your shungite?
In this episode, I answer some questions and comments left on my various 5G videos – especially 5G is just the tip of the iceberg.
Since I posted that video 2 years ago, it has received almost 6000 comments. Many are informative, supportive, and heartening.
And then there are the “other” comments…
Join me for a deep dive QnA – and a bit of fun!
Given the current global situation with the virus lock down, we are all looking for answers.
Some people have suggested that 5G systems are causing the symptoms of Covid-19. But does that really fit the data?
It turns out that we can easily find several rather large holes in this theory from easily available data online.
Of course, that does not mean 5G is the greatest thing since sliced bread!
But it does mean that in the current climate, we should strive to give credit where it is due, and also place blame where it belongs.
