Impossible to accurately assess the risk of 5G to human health
Approaching the issue from a scientific perspective only, but mindful of the parliament’s duty to care for the wellbeing of EU citizens, a series of eminent speakers reviewed the now very extensive literature looking at the health outcomes of 2, 3 and 4G both in humans and in animals. From this they concluded that there was evidence that exposure to EMR (electromagnetic radiation) was implicated in humans some cancers, in the reduction of male fertility and in developmental delays in offspring of women who were heavy users of mobile phones in pregnancy. In animal studies it certainly appears that the sensory capacities of animals are impacted by EMR.
While this is obviously of concern what concerned them a great deal more was that the scientific literature available on the much more powerful 5G is virtually non existent. So it is all but impossible to assess with any accuracy the risk to human, animal or environmental health that 5G might pose. Recognising that stopping the march of 5G at this stage is impossible, their urgent call is for a great deal more independently funded research into possible outcomes of the 5G roll out and into ways of minimising its effects on human, animal and environmental health.

Unexplained symptoms? Sensitivity to foods, chemicals or electrical products could be the cause. Reactions can vary from headaches, joint pain, stuffy/runny nose, bloating, exhaustion and wheezing, to skin rashes, mood swings, hyperactivity or depression. There are things you can do to take control of your illness to do to improve your general health and immune system:
Rule out underlying illnesses. Many symptoms of chemical and food intolerance are similar to those of other illnesses. Excluding major illness should set your mind at ease even if no specific diagnosis can be made. Some people find their illness exacerbated by conditions such as enzyme deficiency; leaky gut; parasitic, viral or yeast infections. Excluding major illness should set your mind at ease even if no specific diagnosis can be made.
Nutrition. Individuals suffering from hypersensitivity, exhaustion or general poor health may find they have an underlying nutritional problem which is hindering recovery: Malnutrition (vitamin or mineral deficiency) can be caused by an inadequate diet and by ill health. Enzyme deficiency, leaky gut and parasitic, viral or yeast infections such as Candida, can all affect levels of food and chemical intolerance. Hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) will exacerbate exhaustion. Most of these problems can be easily resolved. Tests can sometimes be carried out via your GP, or you may need to consult a qualified dietician or nutritionist.
Food Sensitivity/Intolerance. Food intolerance is not the same as a true food allergy. Some hypersensitive people find they develop intolerances to many foods. Sensitivity symptoms can be similar to those of MCS, so sufferers may be unaware that they also have food intolerance. Equally individuals may confuse chemical reactions with food sensitivity symptoms. Once sensitivities have been identified, it is possible to minimise further intolerances through eating foods on a carefully planned Rotation Diet. Alleviating food sensitivities should take pressure off the immune system and reduce the severity of any chemical allergies. More information is given in the section of our website entitled 'Food Intolerance'.
Chemical and Environmental Triggers. If you know your body has become hypersensitive to chemicals, light, noise or electricity you need to take steps to reduce the triggers. Some people with multiple food intolerance may find they are also sensitive to environmental allergies. Any steps you can take to reduce allergic reactions will take a significant load off your immune system; reducing chemical sensitivities is also likely to reduce food intolerance reactions.
Toxicity. Chemical and food intolerance, environmental pollution, stress, lifestyle and diet can all raise levels of toxicity in the body and increase the likelihood of illness. To reduce toxic levels in the liver and stimulate the lymph system, consider gentle exercise, massage, baths with Epsom salts, dry skin brushing, complementary or herbal therapies.
Geopathic Stress (GS). Anyone with a long history of poor health should question whether his or her home is built on an area affected by geopathic stress. Geopathic Stress is a phrase used to describe several types of low level, natural radiation above 8 hertz. If you suffer from electrical sensitivity you are especially likely to be geopathicallystressed. GS doe not directly cause illness, but can place an additional burden on the immune system. Remedies are as simple as moving beds or chairs to unaffected parts of the room. Get more tips.

The new EMF/5G Health summit 2.0. Have you developed EMF hypersensitivity out of the blue, reacting negatively to all things electrical? Are you conscious about the continued roll-out of 5G, satellite-driven EMFs and even smart appliances in your home? The new EMF/5G Health Summit 2.0 is an entry point for the most up-to-date information. The summit may answer questions such as 'What physical symptoms are caused by 5G radiation and EMFs?' 'Are EMFs affecting my mental health?' and 'How do I determine that my symptoms are related?'.
