"Unlike some countries, we do not believe we should spend the next couple of years studying what 5G should be, how it should operate, and how to allocate spectrum, based on those assumptions... Turning innovators loose is far preferable to expecting committees and regulators to define the future. We won't wait for the standards to be first developed in the sometimes arduous standards-setting process or in a government-led activity. Instead, we will make ample spectrum available..."
The public has been lulled into thinking wireless technologies are friendly and benign. Nothing could be further from the truth. When serious adverse effects from 5G are experienced by athletes and visitors in South Korea, how will they identify the source?
Microwave sickness/electromagnetic sensitivity
When radar was first invented, some radar workers became ill. The effects were called "microwave sickness". These symptoms were similar to what occurred when the first experiments with electricity took place.
In a 1998 California survey, 3.2% respondents reported being very sensitive or allergic to electromagnetic radiation at 1998 exposure levels. International surveys have found rising numbers of people reporting EMS. Electromagnetic sensitivity was recognized by the U.S. Access Board in 2002, commissioning a 2005 report  to provide safer buildings and better access for those with EMS or MCS (multiple chemical sensitivities). In 2017, the California legislature provided disabled accommodation for people with EMS and set aside time for EMS witnesses to testify.
Exposure-related health problems include:
heart-rhythm disturbances; nausea and vomiting; seizures; fainting; dizziness; clicking, buzzing or ringing in the ears; pain; inability to sleep and sleep disruption; memory loss; concentration difficulties; migraines and headaches; mood disorders including depression, suicidal thoughts, agitation, anxiety; urination urgency; eye or ear pain; nosebleeds; bleeding from the ears; internal bleeding; skin problems; flu-like symptoms; weakness; chest pressure; and other serious medical problems.
Today, radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMF) exposure levels have increased exponentially, to 1 quintillion times natural background levels according to researcher Olle Johansson. Many people suffer effects from this exposure but don't know the source due to industry political pressure, media silence, and regulatory-agency corruption.
In 2012, the Austrian Medical Association (-AK) released "Guideline of the Austrian Medical Association for the diagnosis and treatment of EMF-related health problems and illnesses (EMF syndrome)" to aid fellow physicians. It included exposure-limit recommendations 10 million times lower than current FCC and Health Canada exposure limits. In 2016 the European Academy of Environmental Medicine (EUROPAEM) expanded that report , emphasizing that exposure reduction is critically important.
