5G


Comments

For about a century now, we're exposed to electricity and electrosmog of a larger variety of sources, since the internet of things has arrived. Smart technology may have its benefits for faster virtual highway traffic, but we need to pay attention to the effect of 5G on our nervous system. It's even more important in The Netherlands, where density of population is equal to the density of smart technology, and cell towers. Evidence of no harm done by this technology is needed much.
