5G in the Philippines - BAD idea!?

Smart and Ericsson to rollout 5G in the Philippines by 2019

Smart and Globe are coming under increasing pressure from the Filipino government to be more proactive on 5G

Filipino telco Smart Communications has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with international tech giant Ericsson, to deploy the first 5G pilot network in the Philippines. Under the terms of the agreement, the pair will deploy a 5G test network in Luzon, the country's biggest and most populous island, by early 2019.


This is a potentially devastating development for all of us.


Questions Raised About 5G Health Risks Months Before Sacramento Launches Service


Firefighters in San Francisco have reported memory problems and confusion after the 5G equipment was installed outside of fire stations. The firefighters claim the symptoms stopped when they relocated to stations without equipment nearby.

The wireless industry told CBS13 that decades of research shows no known health risk from this type of energy. In fact, a spokesperson says the occurrence of brain tumors in the United States has actually gone down since cell phones were introduced.

“The safety of cellphone consumers is important to CTIA and the wireless industry. We follow the guidance of the experts when it comes to antennas and health effects. Following numerous scientific studies conducted over several decades, the FCC, the FDA, the World Health Organization, the American Cancer Society and numerous other international and U.S. organizations and health experts continue to say that the scientific evidence shows no known health risk to humans due to the RF energy emitted by antennas and cellphones. The evidence includes analysis of official federal brain tumor statistics showing that since the introduction of cellphones in the mid-1980s, the rate of brain tumors in the United States has decreased.”


    The Duterte government should take a deeper look into this and halt the 5G project until it is proven safe to the public,
    which is very unlikely because even wi-fi tech has damaging effects.
