5G conspiracy theorists obsessed with the idea that the next generation of wireless technology will bombard them with deadly radiation have come up with a brilliant plan: wear necklaces that… also bombard them with radiation.
The Authority for Nuclear Safety and Radiation Protection (ANVS) recently gave a warning that tests had detected ionizing radiation emitted by 10 individual “negative ion” products, which Guardian reported: are being used by some people with anti-5G views in the hopes that it will protect them from the alleged negative health effects of exposure to 5G towers. The products are sometimes referred to as ‘quantum pendants’. The bulletin was opened by immediately warning owners of the listed products to store them in a safe place and await instructions for return or disposal, as well as any other “negative ion” products they may have in their possession.
The levels of ionizing radiation detected are low and the risk ‘very small’, according to the ANVS, but they are potentially harmful to anyone who wears the products for extended periods of time (as one might if they felt it was necessary to protect them) from the rollout of 5G). The ANVS specifically cited “red skin” as a possible symptom of long-term exposure. Sellers have been instructed that the products are prohibited under Dutch law and that they must stop wearing them immediately or face “criminal or administrative action,” the ANVS announcement said.
“Exposure to ionizing radiation can cause adverse health effects,” the ANVS said, according to the Guardian. “Due to the potential health risk they pose, these consumer products containing radioactive materials are therefore prohibited by law. Ionizing radiation can damage tissue and DNA and can cause red skin, for example. Only low radiation levels have been measured on these specific products.”
“However, someone who wears such a product for an extended period of time (one year, 24 hours a day) may expose themselves to radiation levels exceeding the strict skin exposure limit set in the The Netherlandsthe agency added. “To avoid any risk, the ANVS calls on owners of such items not to wear them in the future.”
The warning applies to Energy Armor sleep masks, black and white necklaces and black super bracelets; Magnetix bracelets, necklaces and bracelets; the aforementioned “Quantum Pendant”; and the Basic Nero bracelet. According to the Guardian, one of the manufacturers advertises that they use “pure minerals and volcanic ash extracted from the earth,” raising the question of which minerals.
if Scientific American pointed out: in 2019, it’s not just conspiracy theorists who believe that 5G could potentially pose a danger to humans; some scientists worry that federal regulations regarding exposure to non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF) are based on outdated research and need to be tightened. However, two large-scale research reviews released by Australian scientists concluded earlier this year that there was no substantial scientific evidence that 5G has an impact on human health. The World Health Organisation states on its website that “To date, and after much research, no adverse health effect is causally related to exposure to wireless technologies,” although it is conducting a health risk assessment of the entire radio frequency range, including 5G, which will be released soon.
The unfounded speculation that 5G cell towers are responsible for health problems ranging from autism to cancer and Covid-19, or otherwise transmit devious mind control signals, is one of the myriad conspiracy theories circulating. almost uncontrolled on social media sites in recent years (until companies like facebook and Twitter got tired of the bad press and action taken against some of the worst culprits). A scheme that went viral both sites in January 2021, allegedly an image of a 5G-enabled nanochip secretly added to coronavirus vaccines actually showed a diagram of the electronics in a guitar pedal. While whoever originally posted it clearly meant it as a joke, many users on those sites seem to have taken it seriously.
British police charged a series of arson attacks at cell towers and death threats against telecom engineers in 2020 on 5G conspirators. A man who a huge car bomb detonated in Nashville, Tennessee, over Christmas last year, killing himself, injuring eight others and causing massive property damage, it was initially speculated that it was linked to 5G theories, given its proximity to an AT&T building. While it was known that perpetrator Anthony Quinn Warner believed in numerous conspiracy theories, the FBI has… later concluded they could find no evidence that 5G or any other specific ideological grudge motivated the attack.
Like virtually any conspiracy theory, the 5G theory has attracted a string of scammers looking to turn the gullibility of believers into hard cash. It is incredibly common for alternative health products on the fringe of the spectrum, which are often loosely regulated at best, to be manufactured with little care for consumer safety.
“5G conspiracy theories fit into a long tradition of paranoia about the horrors that will be inflicted on us by new technology,” Mike Rothschild, a conspiracy theorist researcher and author of The Storm Is Upon Us, told Gizmodo via Twitter DM. “Before 5G, it was conspiracy theories about ‘Wi-Fi poisoning’ and ‘electromagnetic sensitivity’ from smart meters that caused a burst of vague and ever-changing symptoms, or microwaves that made you sterile, or cell phones that gave you brain cancer.”
“Scammers are taking advantage of the public’s lack of basic science and fear of new technology to sell crappy products to ‘counterfeit’ their effects, often using woo buzzwords like ‘quantum’ or ‘ionized’ to convey scientific and complex sound,” Rothschild added.
