As a computer oriented business, we love advancements and innovations in technology, but when the health of our customers is at stake - it is our duty to inform you of the risks.
5G is the term used to describe the next-generation of mobile networks beyond the 4G LTE mobile networks commonly used today. 5G is intended to be the technology that allows the Internet of Things (IOT) to exist and tie all internet connected devices together.
Currently there is no standard for 5G networks in place and it will be a combination of a variety of frequencies and modulations. Industry is developing exactly what 5G will be as the standard has not been set yet. It is assumed that 5G networks will not become commercially available until 2020 but several cities across the globe, including the US and of course Canada, are rolling out 5G in test areas now.
A first glance at US government websites such as the CDC and EPA could lead you to believe that this radiation is safe. >> Yet over 240 scientists and doctors from 41 nations who have published research in the field have appealed to the United Nations calling for urgent action to reduce these ever growing wireless exposures and they wrote the FCC for a moratorium on the roll-out of 5G, citing the serious risks to human health and the environment. Many of these scientists have proven that the radiation waves transmitted from these towers WILL cause cancer, tumours and even change the structure of our DNA.
Since 5G does not have a long range, there will be towers put up every few meters, making the escape from their waves virtually impossible while strolling the city. However, there are ways to minimize the risks.
Now, we're not saying that you need to throw away all your mobile devices. Our goal is always to encourage a balanced, healthy life. One of the things that can do damage to your health is this kind of EMF radiation, but there are ways to lessen the damage and protect yourself.
Even though 5G is not fully rolled out in Calgary - yet - many home routers already have 5G built in. By default, the 5G wifi in your router will be on. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND TURNING IT OFF. Routers come equipped with both 5G and 2.4G wifi signals and since 5G has such a short range and doesn't pass through walls very well, it is not commonly used at home. If you are unsure of how to disable the 5G on your router, we would be glad to help. Simply schedule a tech to swing by and health-optimize your home network.
Not sure how to disable it? We can come do this for you right away so you can get a better nights sleep. While we are at it, we can also health optimize your network and computers to make sure you and your machine stay healthy and free of security threats!
