‘Anti-5G’ Pendants, Necklaces ‘Dangerously Radioactive,’ Dutch Authority Finds

So-called “anti-5G” pendants and necklaces are reportedly dangerously radioactive.

According to The Guardian, the Dutch authority for nuclear safety and radiation protection (ANVS) has released a report explaining that “anti-5G” pendants used to “protect” people from radio frequencies emitted by phone masts are “dangerously radioactive.”

Those that use such items have been told to store them away as soon as possible and await further instruction, as they have been found to continuously emit ionizing radiation.

“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,” the agency continued. “To avoid any risk, the ANVS calls on owners of such items not to wear them from now on.”

As 5G technology continues to become more widespread, fringe groups have continued to emerge, voicing concerns and fears over the health effects of the mobile tech.

“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 Guardian explains.

It has been continuously proven that 5G technology is safe and that there is nothing fundamentally different about the radio signals between 5G, 4G, and 3G.
