13 Habits to Protect Yourself from The Dangers of 5G Radiation
Electromagnetic fields (often referred to as EMFs) are an essential part of the physical world. Electric and magnetic fields occur naturally within our bodies in association with nerve and muscle activity. We also experience the natural magnetic field of the earth and natural electric fields in the atmosphere.
While these natural EMFs are essential to your well-being and life, in general, EMFs from man-made sources—electric currents and voltages from the power system—contribute to pollution that is harmful to you. You are exposed to these harmful EMFs from a wide range of sources including your TV, Wi-Fi, small and large appliances, cell phone radiation, and even the electric meter on your house.

You can’t see EMFs, but if the radiation from EMFs were light, it would look like your world was brightly illuminated even at night—like Times Square times 10. And that light would come through your windows, your walls, your ceilings, and just about every crevice in your home. It would even shine through your bones. If you could hear EMFs, the sound would be similar to a loud tapping noise, as if someone were constantly knocking on your door or other hard surfaces.
Why You Should Be Concerned About 5G Radiation
EMFs, like cell phone radiation, impact our bodies at a cellular level. Science has shown a number of negative effects, including cell membrane damage, loss of calcium ions, and DNA damage. All of this damage on a cellular level has repercussions on your health. In fact, there is even a term for these symptoms—electrical sensitivity. More importantly, we are starting to see that long-term exposure to EMFs has been linked to significant diseases.
The 5G roll-out occurring across the United States and the entire world is largely untested. In the United States, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) share regulatory responsibility for the industry, yet neither has performed safety testing on 5G. Some experts have called 5G a “massive health experiment” that will have “disastrous results.”
According to studies, here are some of the potential serious risks associated with EMFs and 5G radiation:
Increased risk of neurogenerative disease. These include diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). One meta-analysis showed that occupational exposure to ELF-EMF was significantly associated with increased risk of ALS. Another study showed a connection between occupational exposure to above-average levels of EMFs and higher mortality rates from ALS.
Increased cancer risk. EMF exposure has been considered a possible carcinogen with links to leukemia in children, brain cancer, and other cancers. Since 2016, 400 new independent scientific studies on EMFs have shown the link between harmful EMF and 5G radiation and cancer.
Decreased fertility. Both in vivo and in vitro studies show that EMF exposure alters cellular homeostasis, endocrine function, reproductive function, and fetal development. As far back as 2008, a small study at Cleveland Clinic showed that using a cell phone decreases the semen quality in men by decreasing the sperm count, motility, viability, and normal morphology. A larger 2014 study at the University of Exeter showed that normal sperm movement fell by 8 percent when sperm were exposed to cell phone radiation. In fact, male fertility in the Western world has been falling at a rate of 2 percent per year. And a landmark study showed a 59 percent reduction in Western sperm counts from 1973 to 2011. Over time, this could lead to mass depopulation. Women are also at risk. Birth rates among American women have been falling for decades but took a sharp downward turn beginning around 2010, 3 years after the first iPhone was released. In 2016, the fertility rate in the United States had dropped to only 62 live births per every 1,000 women.
Increased rates of depression and suicide. Since the early 2000s, studies have shown that severe depression and suicide rates increased among people living within 150 meters of high-voltage power lines.
Increased blood glucose in diabetics. A 2008 study showed that EMFs contribute to elevated blood sugar in diabetics and prediabetics. The study concluded that up to 60 million diabetics worldwide may be affected. In addition, EMFs may account for higher plasma glucose levels and thus contribute to the misdiagnosis of diabetes.
Increased risk of heart disease. Radiation is a known risk factor for heart disease. It has also been noted by scientists that, at greater EMF strengths or shorter exposures, the body’s ability to develop compensation mechanisms is reduced, so there is the potential for heart-related effect increases.
Additional Risks Associated with EMFs and 5G
EMFs have the potential to exacerbate existing health problems in some people. Some of the conditions that EMFs are known to cause include:
Decreased mental performance
Insomnia and sleep disturbances
Tinnitus (ringing in ears)
Stress, irritability, feeling “wired”
Rashes or hives
My Solutions For Lowering Your EMF Pollution Exposure
There are many reasons why some people develop Electrical Sensitivity due to EMFs – from exposure to cell phone radiation to poor nutrition and everything in between. Even if you don’t suffer symptoms of Electrical Sensitivity, here are some ways you can mitigate EMF pollution to improve your health and vitality:
Buy an EMF protection cell phone case. Cell phones have become necessary for so many of us. They give us freedom while keeping us connected to work, home, family and the world. But, every time you hold your cell phone to your ear, you are absorbing over 50% of the cell phone radiation it transmits. I like Pong cases for cell phones and tablets. The company has a very informative website where you can learn more about cell phone EMFs. There are many others, so do your own research and try the products that speak to your needs and lifestyle. Even with an EMF protector on your phone, I recommend texting and using a headset when you must speak on it. Better yet, use a landline when possible. These are all great ways to reduce your exposure to cell phone radiation.
Avoid body contact with your cell phone and computer. In addition to buying a phone or tablet case to reduce EMF exposure, try not to have bodily contact with your phone, tablet or laptop. Most cell phone manufacturers recommend keeping at least 10mm of space between you and your phone. Avoid putting your phone in your pocket or your sports bra! And don’t sleep with your cell phone next to your bed. If you must keep your phone next to you at night – for example, if you use the alarm feature on you phone – be sure to keep it at least 6 feet away. Definitely don’t put your laptop on your lap if you are trying to get pregnant.
Get grounded. You have probably heard the term “earthing.” If you haven’t, it is an easy way to create health in many ways, including detoxing from EMF exposure. You simply put your bare feet on the ground and allow them to soak up the Earth’s negatively-charged electrons. These electrons can help remove anything from heavy metals, to air pollution, to trans fats and can also reduce inflammation, which is the underlying cause of so many diseases today such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and autoimmune conditions. The Earth’s electrons act like a magnetic mop, cleaning up positively-charged, inflammation-causing electrons and creating balance in your personal electrical circuitry. Practicing Earthing regularly if you live in a big city, can pose some challenges, but there are special conductive devices that you can use, even while you sleep. You can find these products by searching the term grounding products for humans.
Use healing crystals. All crystals have energy, and many can give your own energy field a boost. If crystals and gemstones appeal to you, there are many that can help mitigate the effects of EMF exposure. For more information, click here. You can also ask to be protected by Divine Love.
Create a low-EMF sanctuary. Most homes have wireless Internet. If you live in NYC, or any city for that matter, you probably have 20 or so individual wireless networks in range of your computer. To reduce EMF pollution in your home and your neighborhood, turn off your Wi-Fi whenever you are not using it. Simply put your wireless router on a power strip. When you get up from your computer for a while, and especially when you go to bed, just turn it off. When you want to get online in the morning, simply hit the power strip button.
Remove smart meters. These don’t save you energy and are constantly emitting erratic, high intensity pulses. Some meters pulse up to 190,000 times per day. That is essentially all day every day! And these pulses can travel up to 2 miles. Research also shows that in many communities where there are wireless smart meters, residents complain of symptoms that did not exist prior to smart meters being installed. In fact, the residents often didn’t know that smart meters had been installed. Some of the symptoms include: headaches, insomnia, fatigue, hearing loss/tinnitus, heart palpitations, weakened immune function, irritability, and decreased cognitive function.
Protect your home. Over the past 2 years a huge number of 5G towers were installed across the entire country. They are now activated in just about every U.S. neighborhood (unless you live near certain airports). Disconnecting your home WiFi does not guarantee you are not still being bathed in 5G radiation, especially if your neighbors have an antenna on their roof! But it’s a good start. In addition, you may want to add EMF blockers, such as copper mesh, to the exterior of your home and add others inside near your WiFi router and any router boosters you may have. There are many commercially available EMF protection devices on the market. Do your research to find the best one for you and trust your inner wisdom when making decisions. Also, remember that your beliefs matter. If you believe something is protecting your health, then it probably is!
The 5G—Corona Virus Connection
Over 2 years ago I stated that the symptoms of COVID-19 were the same as radiation sickness and that the worst cases were in areas that have the highest levels of 5G wireless technology—including Wuhan, China where 5G was activated on October 31, 2019, as well as New York City, Seattle, Southern California, and others—compared to cities and states that did not have 5G infrastructure at that time.
This paper from May 2020 detailed the statistically significant correlation between mortality from SARS-CoV-2 and intensity of radiofrequency radiation in 31 countries. The molecular, cellular, physiological, behavioral, and psychological effects of Wireless Communication Radiation (WCR) are explained in-depth in this large body of peer reviewed literature from October 2021.
During the past 2 years, 5G infrastructure was massively expanded across the country. To put 5G radiation in perspective, it’s notable that the natural level of radiation we have evolved to tolerate is in the range of 0.000001-0.00000000001µW/m2 (strength of radiation in watts per square meter). According to experts, the only place we could now find radiation this low is in a cave! By comparison the FCC recommendation for human exposure to wireless radiation is 10,000,000 µW/m2. Add on top of that the increased frequency of radiation with 5G wireless networks that operate at 60 GHz and higher (up to 100 GHz!). That’s a pretty big difference from what we have evolved to tolerate!
So, it goes without saying that if you are living in an area with 5G towers and streetlights all around you, you are at increased risk adverse health events, including COVID-19.
Here are 2 reasons why:
5G depletes oxygen. Oxygen molecules have shared electrons. When we breathe in oxygen, the electrons bind to our hemoglobin, which distributes the oxygen to our red blood cells and ultimately to our vital organs. Oxygen molecules oscillate at a frequency of 60 GHz. Remember, 5G wireless networks operate at 60 GHz and higher (up to 100 GHz!). When 5G is transmitted, atmospheric oxygen absorbs the 5G radiation. When this happens, the oxygen’s electrons are altered making them unable to bind to hemoglobin, which means oxygen cannot be carried to your cells. The end result is oxygen deprivation at the level of the mitochondria.
This is also what happens in severe COVID-19. Other similarities between 5G radiation and COVID-19 symptoms include:
1) Changes to the blood. Some changes to blood include increased clotting time, reduced hemoglobin that can lead to hypoxia, pulmonary embolism, and stroke.
2) Oxidative stress. Oxidate stress increases free radical damage and can deplete glutathione levels.
3) Disruption of the immune system. 5G has the ability to both suppress the immune system and overstimulate it. When immune system suppression occurs, T lymphocytes decrease. When the immune system is hyperactivated, the result is inflammation, cytokine storms, and more.
4) Increased intracellular calcium. This can increase your risk of contracting viruses, as well as cause inflammation, blood coagulation and thrombosis.
5) Cardiac changes. Cardiac changes from 5G include palpitations, arrythmias, myocarditis, even heart failure.
5G radiation awakens latent viruses. Viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens are always in your body. Usually your immune system is working to keep them in check. 5G radiation excites viruses and bacteria making your immune system’s job harder. In addition, the COVID-19 shots contain heavy metals such as graphene oxide and nanotechnologies. These literally turn your body into a 5G router making it more likely that whatever latent viruses you have will be activated in the presence of 5G. I believe this is one reason why people who have taken the shots are falling ill with COVID-19 now.
6 More Ways to Protect Yourself from 5G
1. Take magnesium. EMFs activate the voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) in the outer membranes of your cells. It has been shown that effects of EMFs are reduced by calcium-channel blockers. Magnesium is a natural calcium-channel blocker. If you are deficient in magnesium, as many people are, you could feel increased effects from EMFs. Be sure to take enough magnesium to help protect your cells.
2. Use Zeolite. Zeolite is a natural mineral that binds to heavy metals and radioactive material in the gastrointestinal tract and helps remove them from your body. While this will most likely not protect you directly from EMFs, it can help detox the effects from the COVID shots if you have taken them, and may make you less sensitive to 5G radiation.
3. Eat foods to increase Nrf2. Studies show that Nrf2 promotes DNA repair and detoxification of superoxide, which is generated after exposure to radiation. The Mediterranean and Okinawan diets are said to promote Nrf2. Be sure to eat foods high in phytochemicals and try to include the following types of foods in your diet: Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower); foods high in antioxidants such as bright yellow, red and purple fruits and vegetables; foods high in Omega-3 fatty acids (salmon, krill, sardines, tuna, flax, walnuts); carotenoids (carrots, squash); onions and garlic for the sulfur compounds; aromatic green herbs (basil, rosemary, thyme, oregano).
4. Support your thyroid. Even if you do not have thyroid disease, it’s a good idea to support your thyroid if you are exposed to 5G radiation. The best way to do this is to supplement with iodine. I recommend Lugol’s solution 2%. Take 2-12 drops/day. Or, try super saturated potassium iodide (SSKI), which you can find online at available from Morgellons’s Direct and many other websites. If you have thyroid problems, be sure to work with your doctor to find the right dose.
5. Build healthy red blood cells. To keep your red blood cells and hemoglobin healthy takes a multi-pronged approach. I suggest a good multi-vitamin with adequate levels of vitamins A, C, E, B12, folic acid, copper and iron. Eating red meat, especially organ meat, is another way to get iron if you don’t like to take it in supplement form. Eggs, chicken, and leafy green vegetables are also good. You may also want to take chlorophyl, a super greens supplement, or drink green juice. There are many available. Daily exercise for 30 minutes will also help keep your red blood cells healthy. It’s also a good idea to reduce alcohol consumption or cut it out altogether.
6. Drink alkaline water. Maintaining the proper PH in your body has many benefits. Drinking alkaline water (sometimes called hydrogen water) is an easy way to rebalance your body’s PH. Alkaline water has been shown to neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative stress by activating the Nrf2 pathways. It can also help detoxify acidic waste build-up due to medications, processed foods, and environmental pollution. The main components of alkaline water are magnesium, potassium, calcium and sodium. Alkaline water ionizers can be very expensive. However, you can create your own alkaline water at home by adding baking soda, PH drops, or lemon juice to purified water. While drinking alkaline water will not replace the need for a healthy diet, it can be a good to add to your health routine. Of course, staying optimally hydrated by simply drinking (and eating) enough pure water every day will help keep your body in an alkaline state.
