Warn Olympic Athletes and Public at Pyeongchang of “5G” Microwave Radiation Experiment

We, the undersigned citizens of the world, ask the International Olympic Committee to protect the health of athletes and the public at the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang. The world’s athletes and the public at the Olympic Games are unwitting guinea pigs in a launch of “5G” microwave radiation technology.

Why is this important?

The new 5G technology has not passed any government safety testing. There is indisputable scientific evidence that “low-level” microwave radiation can harm human health.

Action Requested:

We urge you to halt the “5G” deployment and warn both the public and athletes of this reckless and insidious experiment. We especially urge an alert to athletes who were provided "5G" enabled devices such as mobile phones and computer tablets. These devices use a harmful new “5G” beamed technology that focuses radiation from cell towers directly to the user’s device.

A product warning alert about “5G” microwave radiation will inform athletes and the public of the danger and advise them what to do if they experience immediate symptoms. It will also allow athletes to determine whether they wish to use these new “5G” electronic devices.

Additional Background:

As some of our planet’s finest young athletes, as well as residents, and visitors, gather in Pyeongchang for the Olympic Games, there is an insidious corporate experiment playing out.

Korea Telecom, together with Ericsson and Intel, are using the Olympic Games to launch the 5G network, without any government safety testing. No one knows how this new 5G-microwave radiation technology will impact the delicate bioelectrical systems of human beings, plants, and animals.

5G includes higher millimeter wave frequencies never used before for Internet and communications technology. 5G also uses phased array and beam-forming technologies making these higher millimeter wave frequencies yet more potent.

Instead of heeding the cautions of internationally respected scientists, these corporate entities are recklessly pushing to increase radiation exposure even more --- putting all humanity and the environment at risk.

At the Olympic Games, unsuspecting athletes and the public have become guinea pigs for 5G phased array, microwave radiation technology. Athletes have been provided with special 5G-enabled tablets and mobile devices using a new beam-forming technology that focuses radiation from cell towers directly to the user’s device. Athletes and visitors could experience reactions such as nausea, dizziness, nosebleeds, cardiac problems, chest and head pressure, seizures, stabbing pains, and many other symptoms. More disturbing is that we already know that exposure to wireless radiation could result in harmful effects that may not surface until years later.

What is happening in Korea demonstrates a reckless disregard for the health and safety of the Olympic athletes and the public. It blatantly disregards decades of research on non-ionizing radiation, and the recent warning of over 230 peer-reviewed published scientists from 42 countries to the United Nations and to the World Health Organization urging for more caution and greater measures to protect the public from non-ionizing radiation - the kind used in all our wireless technologies and 5G.

Last year, 180 scientists, including two South Korean researchers, called upon the European Union to halt the roll-out of 5G until “potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry.”

We think that all Olympic attendees have the right to protect themselves from this serious invisible threat to their health. We demand that a product warning alert about the risks of 5G radiation exposure be immediately sent out to athletes and to everyone attending the Olympic Games.
