The high price we pay for being connected
We modern humans, like to be connected with our loved ones wherever we might be. Our life is chock full of modern gadgets to make this possible. Then you add some more devices to make your life complete. We end up being completely surrounded by it day and night.
The many human inventions
I am talking about your desktop, laptop, and cellphones. Don’t forget the microwave oven in the kitchen and the couple of TVs you will probably have in your house. Include your Wi-Fi routers, Bluetooth devices, and the Smart Meter.
All of this sends out electromagnetic fields (EMFs) which can disrupt cells, damage your DNA and to top it off, contribute to oxidative stress. We normally forget to consider things like hairdryers, electronic shavers, compact fluorescent lamps, and induction cookers, but it all adds up.
It has become so normal that we forget that a hundred years ago and even 50 years ago, most of these modern gadgets did not form part of our life.
The existing studies do not all agree, and long-term data is not available yet. That kind of data will take 50 years to develop. Still, there is already a lot of data to consider, which will make you wonder if we are going in the right direction.
Your brain does not like EMFs, it is as simple as that. People report having headaches, fatigue, difficulty concentrating and often depressions. One hears already that the new generation, let us call them the smartphone generation, has a lower life expectancy than the previous one. That is worrying, to say the least.
EMF can disrupt your hormones and cause thyroid levels to change. This can lead to unexplained weight gain. People will find it more difficult to have a good night’s rest. What It can also affect are the fertility levels in men and women.
The warning of the World Health Organization
The World Health Organization had put out a warning that EMFs are a possible carcinogenic to humans. However, the WHO has taken this warning off of their website yet we still have concerns. Our concerns about EMF are duplicated in multiple studies as reported in the National Institute of Health website.
You might still doubt that all the EMFs that the modern human surrounds itself with is really dangerous. The companies making all these modern products are not really interested in any negative effects being made available to the general public. That would negatively affect their sales, right?
Just think about what has happened in the past. There are so many examples of things kept hidden for a long time, only to then finally, many years later, come to light. By that time the damage is done. Do you want to run that risk?
More and more people will suffer from Electro-Magnetic Hyper-Sensitivity. Have a look at this YouTube video.
Nature shows the disturbing effects of EMF
As the media, governments, and companies are not informing the public and there are no 50 years of studies, we should simply take a look at nature and see how it is coping with EMFs. Does there exist evidence that the fauna and flora suffer adverse effects of too much EMF? Consider the honey bees.
We all know by now that if the honey bee disappears, we as a race will also disappear. Balderdash you say, this cannot be possible. Consider that 90% of worlds wild plants and over 30% of the food crops we eat, exists because of these tireless little insects.
What happens to our honey bees
Every day, there are fewer and fewer bees, and one of the problems they encounter is the heavy pesticide spraying, worldwide. Have you heard of CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder)? This is something new and had never been observed in nature before. Over a third of all colonies in the U.S. have ceased to exist.
That means that the total number of hives in the country is the lowest in 50 years. When you think that in the year 2015, Americans would consume 550-600 million pounds of honey, one wonders where the honey will come from if we don’t have the bees.
As I said before, one of the factors for the disappearance of the bees is because of pesticide and genetically modified crops. Also, include the loss of habitat. Now, we must consider another possible contributor to the demise of our honey bees, the influence of EMF radiation.
A worrying study on beehives
In 2011, they conducted a study of EMFs on bees in India. They chose 6 Colonies for this study and constantly monitored over a period of 10 days. They exposed three beehives to EMF radiation, 10 minutes per day, by placing cell phones in the hives while they left the other three hives alone.
The researchers were observing the activity to see if they could detect a difference in the bee’s flight patterns and behavior. The queen’s productivity was also taken into account.
Sadly, after this 10 days of observation, a big difference was recorded. None of the bees in the EMF-exposed colonies returned home. The queen bee also showed disturbing behavior. She would only lay 100 eggs a day compared to 350 she produced before the exposure period.
In Switzerland (2017), independent researcher Daniel Favre amplified the already-present ambient EMF and focused it on test colonies. In less than an hour, the bees got agitated, making a piping signal with their wings. That is a higher-frequency sound they make when they are in swarming mode.
When he returned a week later and repeated the experiment, furious honey bees attacked him. It is obvious that this so useful insect is affected by EMF. What are we doing to our world?
Multiple voices of well-known people warn of EMF
As Dr. Tom O’ Brian puts it, like it or not, we are all now living and dying in a digital world. That is how his newsletter started. He and many other people I get newsletters from have told me of the upcoming 5G Summit. I have put information on my Recommendation page where you can sign up for free.
It seems we need better, more, and faster of everything. Something typical in our modern world. Time is money, right? But have you ever thought about the health consequences this might have?
Companies are only too happy to get big contracts, stuffing their pockets. That our health flies out of the window, does not seem to be of interest or concern to them. They will keep any side effects of their inventions secret as long as possible, less it harms their business. We are not told about the serious health risks, nor our fundamental rights, and basic freedoms. What is it coming to?
Who are the initiators of the 5G Summit?
Josh del Sol, activist and filmmaker, and Sayer Ji, co-founder of GreenMedInfo have teamed together to create this much-needed event. The 5G Crisis: Awareness and Accountability. You really should not miss this, as your health and that of your loved ones depend on this knowledge.
Do you know that, in the future, every couple of houses will have 5G installations and that 5G transmitters will be on street lights every few hundred meters? All this without informing us of the dangers or our agreeing to this? These transmitters will emit microwave and millimeter-wave frequencies 24/7 and all the days of the year. Do you want that?
There are so many things happening in this world that sometimes it is getting too much. Many people will think, just let me live my life without too much hassle, please. They close their eyes and ears, but these problems will not disappear when they choose to ignore them. More probably they will be affected by it, and it will catch them unaware.
Do not let that happen to yourself and your family. Be informed about what is happening as much as is possible, and on as many levels as possible.
Below my photo on the right side, you will see a widget “Save the Planet.” This is a link to bUnited, an organization dedicated to combining our buying power to influence companies to be more environmentally conscious. You can read about them and join if it resonates with you. Sadly, COVID-19 affected this worldwide organization in such a way that they had to close. Hopefully, they can reemerge again in the future.
Do not miss the 5G Summit! Inform yourself about the consequences, as no studies on safety have been done, are presently being done, or are planned for the future. What is happening to humanity is a scandal, with far-reaching consequences we cannot understand.
Before you leave, hop over to Recommendations It is a special page I have made for you with a collection of things you might find interesting.

Here is one of the posts I wrote on radiation and its danger. You might like to read this.
This a really important post but I fear that due to our modern needs we might find it very difficult to let go of these devices producing these negative effects on our health. I think the best we can do is to limit our usage of these electronic devices because it is going to be very difficult to remove them from the society.
They are a part of our everyday lives and we have become accustomed to making use of them. It is going to be really difficult. We can also help to create awareness of the dangers of too much gadgets. This can help people become aware of what they use and maybe they would be encouraged to limit its usage.
Good Morning Jay,
Nice to see you again. Thank you for your comment.
Of course, it would be good to reduce the use of all these modern gadgets. The problem is that with 5G you cannot escape anymore. Even without having the internet in your home you would be exposed to the EMF like it or not. And that is what I strongly dislike, you cannot choose anymore.
That is why one has to listen to this 5G Summit, to be fully informed about its dangers.
Wow! This is a wake up call article. I can totally relate and agree. Come to think of it that 20,30,40 or 50 decades ago many of our technologies today never existed and yet people lived a healthy fulfilling life and have survived chores and communications without such innovations. Fast forward today, there are many so called makes life easier inventions but the price to pay out weighs the pros but still being neglicted. And tha’s the sad truth. I admit am guilty too.
Glad there are summits like this that will educate people about awareness and accountability.
Good Morning Gillian,
Thank you for visiting my website and leaving a comment. I hope you downloaded your free PDF? Tulip widget.
I think this 5G Summit is an absolute must. We have to be aware of what is happening in our world instead of being taken for a ride. Too many things are being kept secret and the normal burger has no clue.
I have 4G but unplug everything at night. With 5G there is no escape anymore and that is the worrying part. You cannot choose anymore and are obliged to accept this by force. I do not like that.
While others are blind to this and would rather prefer a faster internet speed rather than care for the world, I must say that with our modern technology especially in the field of communication, we should take advantage but keep our morals intact. We now have a faster internet with our 4G so I think it’s not yet time for 5G especially if that kind of signal can harm the ecosystem of this world.
Good Morning Gomer,
That is where the problem lies. We have no say in this, 5G is here already. In 2018 there was a test with 5G in Holland and hundreds of birds fell died from the sky.
Many cities have it, like Malaga, the province capital. If you unplug everything it will not help anymore as 5G will surround you day and night. Some months ago we bought a personal protection gadget which we wear around our necks.

During the last few months, I’ve been shutting down every single electronic device when I go to sleep including my WiFi, mobile phone, TV, laptop, etc.
Since then, I have realized that I am sleeping much better and I wake up much more rested than before… Also, I have noticed that I have more clarity during the day and I am definitely experiencing way fewer headaches.
EMFs definitely disrupt our natural state of being.
Good Morning Harry,
Thank you for your visit and comment. Nice to see you again.
We also unplug everything and it does help with better sleeping. The problem with 5G is that you have no control anymore, unplug or not 5G is ever-present. We have not given our consent, it is being put onto us if we like it or not. That is why attending this 5G Summit is so important. To be informed is the first step on the road of change.
Interesting article, and I enjoyed reading it.
I’m honestly not sure if I buy into technology being a cause for bees dying (or other eco issues). Pesticides, cutting down trees, destroying natural habitats, etc … to me, that makes sense.
I’m not trying to start a debate, I just can’t wrap my head around technology (EMFs) being the reason.
Good afternoon Lokhi,
Thank you for visiting my website and leaving a comment. I hope you downloaded your free PDF? Tulip widget.
I can understand you find it difficult to wrap your head around the concept that EMF can be harmful to bees. Slowly but surely one starts hearing more on the dangers of radiation on the media so that is good. For both my websites I have written quite a few posts on the dangers of radiation. By now, after investigating myself I am more than convinced it is unnatural and putting a strain on our bodies.
5G will only make it worse as just unplugging at night will not make your home radiation-free anymore. I hope you will look at the 5G Summit as it will surely be an eyeopener.
Thank you for this valuable writing. It was very useful to me.
You see, the fact that these disturbing effects of EMF are caused by the fact that the human body possesses a natural EMF protection mechanism that tries to reduce or nullify the damaging effects of EMF’s whenever the need arises.
But for a person to be able to successfully cancel out all these EMFs around him, he has to be exposed to an ideal EMF-less (not to mention free from any other EMFs) environment.
Good afternoon Zoltan,
Thank you for your visit and for your comment. I hope you downloaded your free PDF, Tulip widget.
It is getting more difficult by the day to remain healthy. So many dangerous things surround us and we even eat, drink, or breathe it. To think we have a wonderful immune system which could cope with most. The problem is that we do not treat it well. Wrong foods, wrong environment and we are the creators, so sad.
Well, that was terrifying! I’ve heard concerns about Wi-Fi and 5G before, but what EMF does to beehives is truly frightening. So many things are affecting our bees, but with this added in, it will be even harder to save them.
We have a 1/5 of an acre on our farm dedicated to a meditation labyrinth/pollinator garden, but we have talked about putting in more, and even adding some beehives someday. It doesn’t feel like enough, with already over 1/3 of our bees missing, but we have to start somewhere.
Thank you for bringing this important topic to a greater awareness.
Good Morning Christine,
Thank you for your comment. I hope you downloaded your free PDF? Tulip widget.
That sounds absolutely lovely to have part of your farm dedicated to a meditation labyrinth/pollinator garden. I live on an organic farm in the south of Spain, so I feel for things like that. It is so sad that we are killing our bees. The consequences are terrible.
On this website, I have more bee posts. I am happy that the closest 5G tower is 1km away, and the property has tall trees.
We really do live in scary times Taetske and I agree with you that the companies don’t really care what damage their new products might do. But to be fair if we the people are not legislating for new products to be tested and proven safe then it really is our fault. We can no longer stop this danger by not participating with the new technology as you have stated that they are going to install it whether you want it or not. Sadly, I don’t see this changing soon.
Great article. Thanks.
Good Morning Lily,
On one side people are not told the truth and on the other side often people do not really care. It needs time and dedication to investigate. When you find opposing information, you have to make up your own mind and decide what to believe. This is a process not everybody is willing to go through. It is easier to ignore the whole thing.
