    5G is bullshit. What we have now may already cause cancer. I don't really want to find out how much worse 5G is gonna be.

          I've heard that 5G as it stands now sets our weather tech back 10-20 years, having something to do with the spectrums of radio in use. Our super Doppler radar won't be as effective for that reason.

                                                          5g will be the end of us
                                                          We can't handle that much radiations.
                                                          By doing that we will se surrounded by radiations all the time no matter how close your devices are..that surely goona affect the upcoming generation severely.
                                                          Let’s start with some basic background on 5G technology. Faster processing speeds require more bandwidth, yet our current frequency bandwidths are quickly becoming saturated. The idea behind 5G is to use untapped bandwidth of the extremely high-frequency millimeter wave (MMW), between 30GHz and 300GHz, in addition to some lower and mid-range frequencies.

                                                          High-frequency MMWs travel a short distance. Furthermore, they don’t travel well through buildings and tend to be absorbed by rain and plants, leading to signal interference. Thus, the necessary infrastructure would require many smaller, barely noticeable cell towers situated closer together, with more input and output ports than there are on the much larger, easier to see 4G towers. This would likely result in wireless antennas every few feet, on every lamp post and utility pole in your neighbourhood.

                                                          Here are some numbers to put the dangers of 5G into perspective: as of 2015, there were 308,000 wireless antennas on cell towers and buildings. That’s double the 2002 number. Yet 5G would require exponentially more, smaller ones, placed much closer together, with each emitting bursts of radiofrequency radiation (RFR)–granted, at levels much lower than that of today’s 4G cell towers–that will be much harder to avoid because these towers will be ubiquitous. If we could see the RFR, it would look like a smog that’s everywhere, all the time.

Obama has style class and a wife who loves him so he hates him too... TRUMP is a true white caucasian from America.. he's not American, an American person would NEVER turn on their military and shake hands with a foreign leader or sleep with a foreign lady.
