WHAT IS 5G?
5G refers to the “5th generation” wireless technology. Its intended purpose is to provide faster and higher capacity data transmissions to carry the massive amount of data that will be generated from the Internet of Things (IoT) and for faster video streaming. That said, no one is yet clear about how 5G will be achieved, so at present, it is being used more as a marketing term than a reality.
What is clear is that 5g will include the higher Millimeter Wave frequencies never before used for public Internet and communications technology. These waves do not travel easily through buildings so will require millions of new cell towers. The wireless telecom industry is aggressively seeking to outfit nearly every lamppost and utility post around the country with a wireless “small cell” antenna potentially beaming hazardous radiation next to, or into our homes, 24/7.
In light of the robust and ever growing independent science, showing adverse health effects from radio frequency microwave radiation, the densification of our neighborhoods with 5G-infrastructure may prove to be a very ill-conceived idea.
WHAT IS THE INTERNET OF THINGS?
The Internet of Things (IoT), as being marketed and sold to the public, is a vision of wirelessly connecting every “thing” possible to the Internet – all machines, appliances, objects, and devices. In addition, the IoT will include Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR), robots, and “enhanced humans” (humans with some form of technology implanted or integrated into their biology to “enhance” human characteristics or capabilities.) IoT sensors and surveillance cameras will pepper our communities as well. New cyber physical systems of the IoT will render all objects “smart” – i.e. connected to the Cloud – thus enabling pervasive machine-to-machine and machine-to-human communications.
Some of the IoT products currently being manufactured include driverless cars, clothing, toasters, coffee makers, even diapers, and pacifiers for babies will be made “smart”. There will be “smart” mattresses (with “infidelity detection systems”), “smart” toothbrushes to record and notify you how well you are brushing your teeth, WiFi connected pills to transmit data to your physician, and the IoT even “promises” sex-bots, bluetooth tampons, and baby pods mothers can insert to serenade their unborn baby.

Every IoT “thing”, including robots, sensors, surveillance cameras, and AR, will generate personal usage-data, which will be mined, stored, and can be used by government, law enforcement, and industry.
Every IoT “thing”, including robots, sensors, surveillance cameras, and AR, will also irradiate our homes and communities 24/7 with hazardous frequencies of pulsed microwave radiation.
