Hello BOOMers! As they say, only death and taxes are certain! So make sure to peer review. I'll add the good points here.
- Remember AGAIN, at ANY frequency if the energy is high enough it can hurt you at least with tissue heating, which can lead to other complications or maybe indirectly to cancer. That's why all transmissions are limited to very low energy that can do nothing.
- Long exposure to sun light's UV-A and UV-B, although not ionizing but because of sheer volume and higher frequency and energy, causes tanning and sun burn. Those cause side effects that can lead to cancer, like accelerated aging of skin cells.
- 5G wireless range is pretty short, see MKBHD's video:
- I'm hearing from a bunch of people that 5G effects the oxygen level in air or body for some reason?! HOW?! oxygen molecule (O2) is non-polarized, so no electrical imbalance in it to interact with EM waves. H2O in microwave oven interacts with 2.4GHz because it is polarized. Which hoax paper talked about this nonsense?! Just because people yell wrong things doesn't make them right! unless there is a very legitimate test report... SHOW ME!
- one more good point: light shining on plants can break molecules and store light energy in plants through photosynthesis. So... can light at lower frequency ionize? Now I'm not familiar with how plants work, but I can assume light does it indirectly. For example, visible light can generate electricity through a solar-cell and that electricity can be used to break water molecules into gasses. You can do all sort of magic with electricity like run a Tesla Coil! So light energy at any frequency can be processed to do other things, but at lower than UV frequencies can't directly break molecules.

Way how UV-A (and B to some extend, but cannot penetrate into skin so much) cause mutations is indirect but does involve ionizing and photo-activation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the cells. ROS are diffusing in the cells and cause oxidative stress damaging DNA and proteins. The point as that ionizing effect depends on the molecule. Photosynthesis: electrons in some molecules can be excited so the jump to an other energy level until they jump back and emit light. Chlorophyll in plants and also photosensitive proteins in the eye have excitable delocalized electrons that are channeled away by the chemical complex. Photosynthesis converts to chemical energy, the eye use the electrons to create signal to the brain. In some sense this is a catalyzed ionization. I think most of the points you make in the video is correct, It was very entertaining and educational. What you did not mention was the secondary effects electromagnetic fields could have that do not manifest in breaking molecules through ionization or heat is its potential interaction with electric currents in the body through induced magnetism. By electric currents I mean membrane polarization in neurons or other ionic gradients. Such an effect could cause electric noise in the brain or modify cell migration or the way how cells interact. What we know is that strong electromagnetic field can cause nausea and dizziness. The long-term effect of low but constant exposure is still under investigation but no ground-breaking evidence has been found against the radio waves yet. The regulatory thresholds for exposure is far below the known dangerous level just because of precaution.

The main problem with 5G wasn’t that it was going to split the dna because of its high energy levels; rather, I was more focused on what properties these waves would have. For example, microwaves have less energy than light, but we all know they are notorious for creating carcinogens in food. 5G very much can create microwaves which is more worrisome

Debunked? Sounds like you're at the apex of a Dunning-Kruger effect curve. While you may know a lot about electricity you seem to be lacking in study on the human body. Please don't talk about things you haven't fully researched. There are greater than 600 studies published by NCBI alone which prove your ignorance. You need to play catchup - we like you a lot and you're the guru of zap but when you have no evidence it's time to shut your trap.

To put it plainly, is the radio antenna/dish warming you up? No, then you are fine, if yes, first check if you aren't standing in the sun or close to another heat source. If you aren't, stand a meter or two further away from the antenna/dish and stop hugging it.

Thanks Electroboom. Easily the best explanation of the basic physics I have come across.
The reason for the paranoia is bound up with the real problem of the government not representing majority interests. But the rejection of science is a distorted response to the failure of workers to overcome this problem. Struggle will decide our fate.

Natural evolution =/= getting cancer. Both animals and humans can get cancer, we are all made out of the same stuff like DNA. Natural Evolution, such as something changing over generations to better adapt to its environment is not cancer.

I would advise anyone who reads this comment to check out 3blue1brown's video about most published research being wrong. Anyhow, let's continue to the comment.
Let's analyze this situation from an unbiased perspective. What are we trying to accomplish with 5G? Better bandwidth. What are we causing because of it? Well, we're irradiating our whole planet. This isn't something that should be addressed in such a silly and non-serious manner, this will affect all human beings that aren't sealed in a faraday cage. This is also new technology with little scientific data. We can't dismiss it's potential dangers by just saying "oh yeah it doesn't cause cancer and it won't cook you alive". Our brains can detect EM radiation. They emit EM radiation.
Now use your brains and think about that. This needs to be more thoroughly researched.

Try getting a signal through a few walls or a tree. 5G sucks over rated. And then you the tax payer will pay for all the repeater sites for the up keep of the grid. Stupid. Everyone is going to be poor and can't afford service when the stock market crashes. Stupid.
