Officials issue product alert and say ‘quantum pendants’ could damage DNA with prolonged use.
People who wear “anti-5G” pendants to “protect” themselves from radio frequencies emitted by phone masts have been told by the Dutch nuclear authority that their necklaces are dangerously radioactive.
Owners of “quantum pendants” and other “negative ion” jewellery have been advised to store them away, as they have been found to continuously emit ionising radiation.
The product alert was issued by the Dutch authority for nuclear safety and radiation protection (ANVS) in relation to 10 products.
“Exposure to ionising radiation can cause adverse health effects,” the safety agency said. “Due to the potential health risk they pose, these consumer products containing radioactive materials are therefore prohibited by law. Ionising radiation can damage tissue and DNA and can cause, for example, a red skin. Only low levels of radiation have been measured on these specific products.
“However, someone who wears a product of this kind for a prolonged period (a year, 24 hours a day) could expose themselves to a level of radiation that exceeds the stringent limit for skin exposure that applies in the Netherlands. To avoid any risk, the ANVS calls on owners of such items not to wear them from now on.”
The products identified included an “Energy Armor” sleeping mask, bracelet and necklace.
The bracelet for children, branded Magnetix Wellness, was also found to be emitting radiation:
As governments across the world have started to establish the infrastructure for fast 5G internet, a range of groups have emerged voicing fears over the health effects of mobile telephony.
The concerns vary from questioning the level of research that has been done into the impact of radio frequencies and close proximity to masts, to allegations that 5G is the cause of anything from headaches to immunodeficiencies.
The World Health Organization has said that 5G is safe and that there is nothing fundamentally different about the physical characteristics of the radio signals produced by 5G compared with those produced by 3G and 4G.
Despite this, an industry suggesting that certain types of jewellery, including one product mentioned in the Dutch alert that claims to “utilise pure minerals and volcanic ash that are extracted from the Earth,” has burgeoned.
Last year, 15 EU member states called on the European Commission to address a spate of conspiracy theories that had led to arson attacks against telecommunications masts.
5G: Cause for concern?
While it might seem as though everyone you know owns or uses a digital device — smartphone, car, laptop or smartwatch — not a week goes by when mobile phone radiation fears are not reflected in the mainstream news cycle.
Around 250 scientists from around the world signed a petition recently to the United Nations and World Health Organization outlining their concerns that “cellular and cordless phones [2G, 3G and 4G networks] … and broadcast antennas,” amongst other radio frequency emitting devices, may produce cancer risks due to the electromagnetic field (EMF) radio waves they produce.
The appeal outlined: “Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive systems, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans.”
Living organisms at all levels, the scientists added, are affected by exposure to electromagnetic fields produced by smartphone devices and transmission towers.
“Damage is not limited to humans as there is growing evidence of harmful effects in both plant and animal life.”
Numerous controlled scientific studies of 2G, 3G and 4G technologies have shown that stress, sperm and testicular damage, neuropsychiatric effects, including changes to electrical activity in the brain, cellular DNA damage and calcium overload can all occur in humans as a result of exposure to EMFs.
Sarah Drießen, of the Research Center for Electromagnetic Environmental Compatibility at Germany’s University of Aachen, points to a study from the US which shows a clear connection between strong radiofrequency fields of existing radio standards and cancer in rats.
“If high-frequency fields in the millimeter wave range (30-100 GHz) are used for 5G, there are far-less studies on those than for the known mobile radio frequencies,” the researcher said.
Tests in mice exposed to EMFs for nine hours a day over a two-year period also experienced changes in their nervous system, including the brain, heart and testes. Increased cell death was also reported. One needs to bear in mind 5G technologies did not exist at the time this research was conducted.
Some researchers argue exposure of young children to emitting devices is much more damaging due to their smaller skulls and skull thickness and the increased exposure to their brains.
Despite this, the World Health Organization’s International EMF Project, which investigates the health effects of electromagnetic fields on humans, argues there are “no major public health risks [that] have emerged from several decades of EMF research.”
