We started with 1G which brought us voice only, 2G brought us text, then 3G brought us data and video calling, 4G is the current generation which brought us HD video and gaming services. The newest generation is 5G, and the 5G network will increase speed and do a whole lot of other cool new things. But do we really need faster? Is what we have ever going to be sufficient or will we always come out with something newer? Well duh, the answer is yes. However, people are not looking at the long-term effects of this radio frequency radiation? Dr. Gabriel Cousens joins us today and he has been studying this topic exactly. Here he lies out in a blog some of the potential health concerns associated with the 5G network:
- DNA single and double-strand breaks (which leads to cancer)
- Oxidative damage (which leads to tissue deterioration and premature ageing)
- Disruption of cell metabolism
- Increased blood-brain barrier permeability
- Melatonin reduction (leading to insomnia and increasing cancer risks)
- Disruption of brain glucose metabolism
- Generation of stress proteins (leading to myriad diseases)
Dr. Cousens spoke about this same topic a few episodes back, you can find it here.
DeWone Bennett also joins us today to talk about parental anxiety and paranoia. Along with all the technology advances like the 5G network, we have also advanced ways to keep watch on our houses, track other people’s locations, etc. When it comes to parents doing this to kids, it can mean a whole different upbringing than someone who was born 20+ years ago. Kids are so much more easily caught doing something by their parents. This makes parents feel even MORE anxious and paranoid about their child’s behaviors. DeWone talks all about this and how to not be a paranoid and anxious parent.
