Effects of 5G on Pacemakers
Hi all, I'm quite concerned about the effects 5G will have on our pacemakers. If you have read all the conspiracy theories about 5G, they are rolling it out here in Australia and most parts of the world, while we are all in lockdown, towers are going up all over the place and as the schools are empty they are out putting it in... (this is actually happening, countries like Switzerland, Belgium etc are banning it till they study the health effects)
I had my pacemaker checked yesterday and asked my technician if Medtronic had done any studies on the effects and he said no not that he is aware.
Ill tell you why Im concerned. I have had pacemakers since 1975 and in 1996 we travelled around Australia in a combie with my kids 2 and 4 years old... only a few months prior to our travels I had my pacemaker upgraded to a dual chamber - you beaut latest technology etc... In those days we had the big Nokia brick like phones...
So out in the remote areas of Oz there was no signal we didnt even have 2G i dont think or maybe thats what we had... so every time we would come into a town on our travels at about 5-10 kms out of town, I would get stabbed in the chest /pacemaker area with a piercing pain (like when you touch someone with static electricity and you get the piercing shock) and I would catch my breath (pacemaker would mode switch), and then we realized it was the radio/mobile phone towers. Hubby would be the spotter and call out there it is and the mobile phone would come on line. The other thing that happened now and then was I seemed to get piercing pain when someone was on a mobile phone near me, it was if the signal went via my pacemaker first. When we got back to the city it just happened all the time.
Some of you older pacemaker people might remember if you turned your battery operated radio off the station you could hear your pacemaker beating/ticking, just like when the phone would ring in the car and your could hear do do da doo before it rang, kinda like dial up internet noise.
Anyway everyone thought i was completely nuts.. my specialist called me crazy, medtronic shrugged their shoulders. Then a few years on everyone started believing me, studies where done and the new pacemakers where insulated against this type of interference. My specialist was amazing and went out of his way to prove i wasnt nuts.. I also have what he calls a spagetti factory of wires still left in my heart which could of been causing the conduction of waves and making it even more pronounced for me.
So this is why i worry about 5G.. the gigs it puts out is going to be god knows how much more powerful than anything we have now. We are even warned now not to put phones in our top pockets over our pacemakers or use that side to talk on the phone... Mmmmhmmm makes you wonder doesnt it.
Has anyone done any research or have any articles on it that you can share. Ive started searching the internet but not coming up with much yet.
This is a post from 2015 covering off what I just explained... 9 years after it was happening to me
