Fifth-generation conspiracy theorists obsessed with the idea that next-generation wireless technology will bombard them with deadly radiation have settled on a brilliant plan: wear necklaces…also bombard them with radiation.
Recently, the Netherlands Authority for Nuclear Safety and Radiation Protection (ANVS) Issue a warning Tests revealed ionizing radiation emitted from 10 separate products of “negative ions” The Guardian reported They are used by some people who hold anti-5G beliefs in hopes that it will protect them from the supposed negative health effects of exposure to 5G towers. The products are sometimes also referred to as “quantum suspensions”. The leaflet has been opened warning owners of the listed products to immediately store them safely and await instructions for return or disposal, as well as any other “negative ion” products they may have.
The levels of ionizing radiation detected are low, according to ANVS, and the risk is “very small,” but it is potentially harmful to anyone who wears the products for an extended period of time (as one might think it is necessary to protect them from a 5G rollout). ANVS specifically mentioned ‘red skin’ as a possible symptom of prolonged exposure. Sellers have been instructed that the products are prohibited by Dutch law and should stop wearing them immediatelyANVS said it may follow, or “criminal or administrative action” may follow.
“Exposure to ionizing radiation may cause adverse health effects,” the ANVS said, according to the Guardian. “Due to the potential health risks they pose, these consumer products containing radioactive materials are prohibited by law. Ionizing radiation can damage tissue and DNA and can cause skin redness for example. Only low levels of radiation have been measured on these specific products.” .
“However, a person who wears a product of this type for an extended period (a year, 24 hours a day) can expose himself to a level of radiation that exceeds the strict skin exposure limit applied in HollandThe agency added. “To avoid any risk, ANVS calls on owners of these items not to wear them from now on.”
Warning applies to Energy Armor sleep masks, black and white necklaces, and super black bracelets; Magnetix bracelets, necklaces and bracelets; The “quantum necklace” mentioned above; The Basic Nero badge. According to the Guardian, one of the manufacturers declares that they “use pure minerals and volcanic ash extracted from the ground”, asking a question about … what are the minerals.
as Scientific American In 2019, conspiracy theorists weren’t the only ones to believe that 5G could pose some kind of risk to humans; Some scientists have concerns that federal regulations regarding exposure to non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF) are based on outdated research and need to be stricter. However, two extensive research reviews Published by Australian scholars Earlier this year, it was concluded that there is little scientific evidence of 5G’s impact on human health. the World Health Organization Its website states, “So far, after much research, no adverse health effects have been linked to exposure to wireless technologies,” although it is conducting a health risk assessment over the entire radio frequency band including 5G for release soon.
Unsubstantiated speculation that 5G cell towers are responsible for health conditions ranging from autism to cancer and covid-19, or that they transmit deceptive signals for mind control, are among the myriad conspiracy theories circulating Practically unchecked On social media in the past few years (so companies like Facebook social networking site And Twitter I’m sick of bad press and I took action against some of the biggest offenders). One of the most popular layouts Both of these sites In January 2021, a purported 5G nanochip secretly added to vaccines against the coronavirus actually depicted a diagram of the electronics inside a guitar pedal. While whoever originally posted it clearly meant it as a joke, many users on those sites seem to have taken it seriously.
UK police blamed a series of fires In dungeons and death threats against telecommunications engineers All year 2020 the supporters of 5G. a leg A huge car exploded in Nashville, Tennessee, At Christmas last year, he killed himself, injured eight others, and caused extensive property damage, initially expected to be related to 5G theories, given the proximity of the explosion to an AT&T building. While the perpetrator Anthony Quinn Warner was known to believe in many conspiracy theories, the FBI finished later They were unable to find any evidence of 5G or any other ideological grudge that motivated the attack.
Like almost any conspiracy theory, the fifth generation has attracted a group of enthusiasts seeking to turn the naivety of believers into hard cash. It is incredibly common for alternative health products to be manufactured on the marginal side of the spectrum, which are often loosely regulated at best, using a little worried For the safety of consumers.
“5G conspiracy theories fit into a long tradition of paranoia about the horror that will befall us through new technology,” said Mike Rothschild, conspiracy theorist and author of The storm is upon us, to Gizmodo via Twitter DM. “Before 5G, conspiracy theories about ‘poisoning Wi-Fi’ and ‘electromagnetic sensitivity’ from smart meters were causing rashes of mysterious and ever-changing symptoms, or microwaves making you sterile, or cell phones causing you brain cancer.”
Rothschild added, “Scammers take advantage of the public’s lack of basic scientific knowledge and fear of new technology to sell worthless products to ‘counter’ its effects, often using buzzwords like ‘quantum’ or ‘ionizer’ to sound scientific and complex.”
