I have friends and clients who have been excited to share all that they have learned from their Fitbits. They talk about what they have learned regarding their heart rate, calorie intake and sleep patterns. I believe knowledge is good, however I also know that radio frequencies (microwaves) cause cancer. Wearing a Fitbit 24 hours a day is like sleeping with your cell phone. In May, 2011, the World Health Organization announced radio frequencies (RF) to be a class 2B carcinogen. Since then, thousands of studies have linked RF to sleep disorders, headaches, nausea, skin rashes, brain fog, and cancer. The RF inhibit the bodies production of melatonin, which disrupts your sleep patterns.
Your body heals while you sleep. Sleeping with a Fitbit, or your cell phone, is like having someone poke you with a pen all night long. The RF stimulate your cells causing an interruption in the communication between cells. RF are part of the electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs).
"EMFs work by activating what are called voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs). These are channels in the outer membrane of the cell, the plasma membrane that surrounds all our cells. When they're activated, they open up and allow calcium to flow into the cell. It's the excess calcium in the cell which is responsible for most if not all of the [biological effects]." https://www.sott.net/article/361010-Calcium-channels-free-radicals-and-the-effects-of-EMF-explained
My advice: If you want to wear a Fitbit, take it off at night, and move it away. Unplug everything near the head of your bed. If using your cell phone as an alarm clock, put it on airplane mode. Keep your cell phone away from the head of the bed. By creating a space with reduced EMFs, your body will be able to heal while you sleep.
5G means 5th Generation Wireless Network. This network will give us faster internet, but at what cost? 5G does not travel through buildings as easily as 4G (4th Generation Wireless Network). This means we will need a radio frequency (RF) transmitter every 2 to 10 houses. This amount of radio frequency has not been tested on humans. We do not know the cumulative effects of massive amounts of RF. We do know, however, that RF causes cancer. In May, 2011, the World Health Organization announced RF to be a class 2B carcinogen (cancer causing). We know that RF is dangerous, yet we are willing to allow our neighbourhoods to be inundated with it. Maybe not willingly. The majority of people do not know that this is being installed. The majority of people do not know that RF (cell phones, cell towers, Wifi, baby monitors, cordless phones, etc.) causes cancer.
Maybe it is time to open our eyes and decide whether faster internet is worth the risk to our health. Some people say, "What you don't know, won't hurt you." In this case, it might. People who have been overexposed to RF may have developed Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS). Symptoms may include; nausea, headaches, migraines, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), inability to concentrate, unexplained fatigue, insomnia, rashes, pain and aches in muscles, heart rhythm disorders, and more.
Some of us have chosen not to have Wifi in our homes, due to health concerns. Is it fair to force this RF into our homes?
