5G networks will use the same frequencies as pain-inflicting crowd control weapons
woensdag, 19 april 2017 - Dossier: Algemeen

19 april 2017

Israeli research studies presented at an international conference reveal that the same electromagnetic
frequencies used for crowd control weapons form the foundation of the latest network – branded as 5G
– that will tie together more than 50 billion devices as part of the Internet of Things. Current investigations
of wireless frequencies in the millimeter and submillimeter range confirm that these waves interact directly
with human skin, specifically the sweat glands. Dr. Ben-Ishai of the Department of Physics, Hebrew University,
Israel recently detailed how human sweat ducts act like an array of helical antennas when exposed to
these wavelengths. Scientists cautioned that before rolling out 5G technologies that use these frequencies,
research on human health effects needed to be done first to ensure the public and environment are protected.


Dr. Davis notes “This work shows that the same parts of the human skin that allow us to sweat also respond
to 5G radiation much like an antenna that can receive signals. We need the potential adverse health impacts
of 5G to be seriously evaluated before we blanket our children, ourselves and the environment with this

Research studies from the Dielectric Spectroscopy Laboratory of the Department of Applied Physics,
Hebrew University of Jerusalem, headed by Dr. Yuri Feldman, indicate that millimeter and submillimeter
waves may lead to preferential layer absorption. The number of sweat ducts within human skin varies from
two million to four million. The researchers pointed to replicated peer research of these biological effects in
laboratory research conducted in other countries and considered this mechanism of action well proven.

Today’s cellular and Wi-Fi networks rely on microwaves – a type of electromagnetic radiation
utilizing frequencies up to 6 gigahertz (GHz) in order to wirelessly transmit voice or data. However, 5 G
applications will require unlocking of new spectrum bands in higher frequency ranges above 6 GHz to
100 GHz and beyond, utilizing submillimeter and millimeter waves – to allow ultra-high rates of data to
be transmitted in the same amount of time as compared with previous deployments of microwave


For years, the U.S., Russian and Chinese defense agencies have been developing weapons that
rely on the capability of this electromagnetic technology to induce unpleasant burning sensations on the
skin as a form of crowd control. Millimeter waves are utilized by the U.S. Army in crowd dispersal guns
called Active Denial Systems. Dr. Paul Ben-Ishai pointed to research that was commissioned by the U.S.
Army to find out why people ran away when the beam touched them. “If you are unlucky enough to be
standing there when it hits you, you will feel like your body is on fire.” The U.S. Department of Defense
explains how: “The sensation dissipates when the target moves out of the beam. The sensation is
intense enough to cause a nearly instantaneous reflex action of the target to flee the beam.”

The conference at the Israel Institute for Advanced Studies at Hebrew University (IIAS) was
organized in cooperation with the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS)
and the Environmental Health Trust (EHT).

Verizon just announced that 5G networks will be tested in 11 U.S. cities. 5G Networks will involve the
deployment of millions of antennas nationwide, thousands in each city, because millimeter waves
cannot easily travel through buildings or other obstacles. Proposed installations have led to public outcry
in residential areas where homeowners do not want antennas mounted at their yards or near schools.


“There is an urgent need to evaluate 5G health effects now before millions are exposed. We need to know
if 5G increases the risk of skin diseases such as melanoma or other skin cancers,” stated Ron Melnick,
the National Institutes of Health scientist, now retired, who led the design of the National Toxicology Program
study on cell phone radiofrequency radiation.

Dariusz Leszczynski, PhD, Chief Editor of Radiation and Health, stated that the international organization –
called ICNIRP – developing recommendations for public exposure limits of these higher frequencies was
planning to classify all the skin in the human body as belonging to the limbs rather than to the head or
torso. Leszczynski cautioned that, “If you classify skin as limbs – no matter where the skin is – you are
permitted to expose it more than otherwise.”

“The use of sub-terahertz (Millimeter wave) communications technology (cell phones, Wi-Fi, network
transmission antennas) could cause humans to feel physical pain via nociceptors, ” stated Dr.
Yael Stein, MD, who wrote a letter to the Federal Communications Commission about 5G
Spectrum Frontiers.
