LONDON, England (PNN) - February 3, 2020 - There are fears that increased levels of radiation in the Fascist United Kingdom, as 5G coverage spreads across the country could seriously impact human fertility levels.
The rollout of the high-speed network, which was launched in Britain in May last year, has sparked protests from those who believe higher levels of electro-magnetic radiation (EMR) in the atmosphere are dangerous, and that 5G's potential health effects need to be tested.
A letter presented to Downing Street last week urged Prime Minister Boris Johnson to open an inquiry into "establishing the true impact of wireless communication systems on the health of the (F)UK population".
"We are extremely concerned by the vulnerability of our young and very young people to the harmful effects of pulsed RF radiation," read the letter, which was handed over along with two petitions, one of which was signed by 268 physicians and scientists.
"Study upon study is showing that this non-ionizing radiation is causing oxidative DNA damage in cellular systems and this may be particularly harmful to the reproductive system of young boys, adolescents and young men."
Sperm counts among British men have fallen by 29% in the last decade. Multiple international studies have found a link between increased mobile phone use and a drop in both the quantity and quality of sperm.
A 2016 review by the Society for Reproduction and Fertility reported that of 27 studies investigating the effects of mobile phone EMR on the male reproductive system, 21 resulted in negative consequences of exposure.
In a 2018 article called Wi-Fi is an Important Threat to Human Health, which was published in the journal Environmental Research, Dr. Martin Pall from Washington State University cites a 1997 experiment with chilling results.
Two pairs of young mice were placed into cages with different levels of exposure to a functioning antenna, although the exposure levels at both sites were well within safety guidelines.
The pair in the cage with a higher exposure level produced one litter of smaller than normal babies, a second litter with fewer than normal babies, and demonstrated infertility or very low fertility from this point on.
The pair exposed to a lower level of EMR produced four litters with fewer numbers of babies each time, before they became completely infertile.
"In both groups, the mating and possible subsequent gestation for the fifth possible litter were performed under conditions of no EMF exposure, but the fertility effects were not reversed; therefore fertility effects may become irreversible, suggesting a similar pattern to the brain related effects of [EMR]," Dr. Pall wrote.
Dr. Chris Newton, director of the Center for Immuno-Metabolism, Microbiome and Bio-Energetic Research and one of the protesters who presented the petitions to the prime minister, says such studies are alarming and don't bode well for human fertility rates.
"One has to go along the path of biological studies, animal studies and trends," he said.
"We cannot do human studies for obvious reasons. From a biological/in-vitro/ex-vivo perspective, there are cellular systems that are damaged by radio frequency EMR at power levels (much) below the limits set by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection. One of these is DNA. It is possible that germline mutation could arise in response to the level of radiation to which we are already exposed,” said Newton. "We really don't know what future exposure will be, but when the new standard is rolled out it will certainly not go down. Animal studies are alarming, particularly [the 1997 mice experiment]."
He's calling for more studies into EMR's health effects, which he says can probably affect women's fertility as well as men.
"What we have to hold in mind is that never before in the history of mankind (as far as we know) have we been exposed to such relatively high levels of unnatural RF [radio frequency] radiation."
Professor Olle Johansson from the Department of Neuroscience at Sweden's Karolinska Institute has predicted mass infertility among humans "within five generations" or 150 years into the future.
"We are playing with the most precious item you have, namely your own children," he said in an interview in 2013.
The following year the World Health Organization stated, “No adverse health effects have been established as being caused by mobile phone use.”
However, WHO has classified all radio frequency radiation as "possibly carcinogenic" because of non-conclusive findings that indicate exposure could cause cancer in humans.
