World-Renowned Scientist Explains Why the “Race to 5G” is an Albatross and a Mirage

By B.N. Frank

5G is so controversial that it has become the subject of several “Dilbert” cartoons.  Cities AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums on deployment due to biological, environmental, and safety risks.

Since 2017, doctors and scientists have asked for 5G moratoriums on Earth and in space (see 1, 2).  Yet proponents continue to talk about the need to “win” the “Race to 5G”.  It doesn’t have to make sense.  There’s A LOT of money riding on it.

Thanks to Dr. Devra Davis for explaining why the world would be a safer place if everyone just walked away from this despicable and disastrous business venture.

Why The Race To 5G Is A Mirage

By Dr. Devra Davis


  • Former national finance minister, Lou Jiwei warned last month that existing 5G technology in China is immature and quite expensive.
  • The next stimulus package should contain billions of dollars to produce, distribute, install, build out, maintain and monitor municipal fiber-optic broadband cable around the nation.
  • Until and unless a much safer, more cost-effective and less-energy intensive system can be produced, we should revise plans for continued expansion of the 5G albatross.

Why The Race To 5G Is A Mirage

You may have heard that we are locked in a technology battle with China over commercializing 5G. That conflict turns out to be more hype than happening, designed to whet American appetites for competition and pave the way for more subsidies to the global multi-trillion dollar telecom industry.

Former national finance minister, Lou Jiwei warned last month that existing 5G technology in China is immature and quite expensive. Increased electricity costs to fuel 5G in 2019, he recently warned look to be 10 times the profit of China Telecom — one of three state telecom companies of China.

Not missing a beat or a chance for tapping heavy government subsidies, a China Telecom official, speaking at a Groupe Speciale Mobile Association seminar in Beijing last month, called for the government to directly underwrite telecom electricity costs. He minced no words voicing his fear that without this support 5G could prove a colossal failure.

“The existing 5G technology is very immature. Hundreds of billions of investment have been deployed, and the operating cost is extremely high. No application scenarios can be found, and it is difficult to digest the cost in the future,” Jiwei warned last month in a speech that has been independently confirmed.

The majority of scientists worldwide are opposed 5G deployment until studies determine that it’s safe.  Of course there is already research that has determined that it’s NOT safe and exposure health risks ARE NOT isolated to 5G.  Last year, the World Health Organization warned that high levels of Electromagnetic Fields (aka “Electrosmog”) could cause health issues in a significant percentage of the population.

High speed internet is achievable, safer and more secure with a wired internet connection (see 1, 2).  This has never not been true.  5G simply isn’t worth the risks or the price tag.
