Could there be a link between the Coronavirus and 5G?
Researcher and building biologist Paul Doyon has just spent the last 18 months in China. He’s written a brilliant article laying out the evidence. And how you can protect yourself—an EMF based protection strategy. Warning: this is a heavy science based article with nearly 100 references to studies—neither Paul or myself want to be accused of fear-mongering.
Countries Not Implementing or Trialing 5G (or only trialing 5G on a very limited basis) Have Lesser Cases of COVID-19
Belgium, for example, on the other hand — which had decided not to even trial 5G, let alone implement it, due to radiation concerns — had only one case, who recovered, (when I originally wrote this article) but now has had 267 (March 11, 2020) cases, mainly due to people with the virus coming back from Italy, and no deaths.
If one takes the time to look at the countries with the most COVID-19 cases going down to the countries with the least, and the countries implementing 5G, to those trialing it, to those having not even trialed it, one will definitely notice a trend aligned with not only the number of COVID-19 cases, but most likely also the severity of cases.

The number of millennials with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease is surging, report finds
Between 2013 and 2017, early-onset dementia and Alzheimer’s diagnoses increased by 83% among commercially insured Americans aged 30 to 44, according to a report released by the health care insurer. That age group includes the oldest millennials.
Overall, early-onset diagnoses increased by 200% among commercially insured Americans between ages 30 to 64. That included a 50% jump among those 45 to 54 and by 40% for those aged 55 to 64.
The average patient was diagnosed at age 49.
“The results of this report are concerning, especially the increase in early-onset dementia and Alzheimer’s disease among younger people,” Dr. Richard Snyder, chief medical officer for Independence Blue Cross, said in a statement.
What is happening, and why?
Since 5G is a new technology, there is no research on health effects, so we are “flying blind” to quote a U.S. senator. However, we have considerable evidence about the harmful effects of 2G and 3G. Little is known the effects of exposure to 4G, a 10-year-old technology, because governments have been remiss in funding this research. Meanwhile, we are seeing increases in certain types of head and neck tumors in tumor registries, which may be at least partially attributable to the proliferation of cell phone radiation. These increases are consistent with results from case-control studies of tumor risk in heavy cell phone users.
The latest cellular technology, 5G, will employ millimeter waves for the first time in addition to microwaves that have been in use for older cellular technologies, 2G through 4G. Given limited reach, 5G will require cell antennas every 100 to 200 meters, exposing many people to millimeter wave radiation. 5G also employs new technologies (e.g., active antennas capable of beam-forming; phased arrays; massive multiple inputs and outputs, known as massive MIMO) which pose unique challenges for measuring exposures.
Millimeter waves are mostly absorbed within a few millimeters of human skin and in the surface layers of the cornea. Short-term exposure can have adverse physiological effects in the peripheral nervous system, the immune system and the cardiovascular system. The research suggests that long-term exposure may pose health risks to the skin (e.g., melanoma), the eyes (e.g., ocular melanoma) and the testes (e.g., sterility).
Enact the “Cell Phone Right-to-Know” Law in Your Community!
Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court let stand the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision to uphold the City of Berkeley, California’s “Cell Phone Right-to-Know” law. This law requires mobile phone retailers to warn consumers at the point of sale that carrying mobile phones in pockets and bras could present radiation health risks.
Today, send this sample municipal law to your town, city or county elected officials:
SAMPLE CELL PHONE RIGHT-TO-KNOW LAW
The (town, city or county) of ______________ requires that you be provided the following notice:
“To assure safety, the Federal Government requires that cell phones meet radio-frequency (RF) exposure guidelines. If you carry or use your phone in a pants or shirt pocket or tucked into a bra when the phone is ON and connected to a wireless network, you may exceed the federal safety guidelines for exposure to RF radiation.
Refer to the instructions in your phone or user manual for information about how to use your phone safely.”
