5G millimeter waves: A silent menace?

One of our customer support specialists recently chatted with a lovely lady that shared something interesting.

Here's what she said:

... ... ...

"I'm so excited to get this because I really have old versions of iPhone cause I'm scared to death of the 5G. I did finally get a new phone because those old phones don't work that well."

... ... ...

This was a great comment that I believe it's worth discussing.

As you may know, 5G is a technology that helps our phones communicate.

Just like 2G, 3G, and 4G, use radiation frequencies to transmit voice and data. 

And there's one difference between generations:

The newer the generation...

The more data your phone can transmit.

This means higher efficiency and options

(For example, you couldn't connect to the Internet if you had a 4G phone and were underground)

But, like everything, there's a price to pay with new technology.

In 5G's case, this means increased radiation emission.

See, 5G uses a broader range of radiation frequencies...

And it specifically uses what's called high-band frequencies (also known as millimeter waves). 

Now here's where things get tricky: 

Millimeter waves haven't been used in mobile communications before 5G.

This means we don't know their long-term effects.

But, we can make a few guesses.

Now, please keep in mind that what I'll share below is just scientific speculation.

Research is still being conducted.

So, we don't have a clear picture of how millimeter waves and 5G can affect us.

With that said, here are the facts:

We know that the skin absorbs millimeter waves a lot.

So some scientists wonder if these 5G frequencies can cause skin issues long-term.

Makes sense right?

It's like the sun.

The more you're exposed to it...

The more likely you are to develop skin cancer.

So something similar can happen with 5G frequencies.

Or how about this:

RF radiation, including millimeter waves from 5G, can warm our bodies. 

And since the skin absorbs millimeter waves...

There's a chance 5G devices can increase skin temperature...

And cause thermal discomfort if we use them for long enough. 

(Especially if you hold your devices close to your body.)

So 5G devices can increase body temperature...

Even by a little.

"OK, but is a small increase in temperature that big of a deal?"

Great question.

Consider this:

The average normal body temperature is around 98.6°F (37°C).

Yet, a temperature over 100.4°F (38°C) often means you have a fever.

So, a tiny 2% increase in your body's temperature means fever.

Now, imagine using a device that can increase your body's temperature...

And imagine using it for 2, 4, 6, 8, or even 10 hours daily.

What do you think will happen to your body?

This question bugged me many years ago.

And I decided to find out.

So I tested to see what would happen after spending just 30 minutes on the phone.

I've shared the images before, but they're worth seeing again

So take a look below:

The first set of pics shows my head's temperature spike with just my Blackberry at the time.The second set, is my head's temperature with a Bodywell chip


Interesting, right?

My head's temperature spiked by 2 Celcius after just 30 minutes.

And this was with a Blackberry that used 3G.

Imagine how much the temperature would spike with one of the latest iPhones that use 5G.

Please remember:

Our bodies are finely tuned to manage temperature.

But when this delicate balance is constantly disturbed?

It can lead to sweating, rapid pulse, dizziness, fatigue, and headaches...

And even mess up with our concentration, memory, and decision-making skills.

So, if you ask me, I think the lady mentioned at the beginning is right to be worried about 5G.


We still need more research on the topic of 5G.

Anyone who disputes this, they rely on emotions, not cold-hard facts.

But based on what we know about radiation and its long-term effects...

It's smart to be careful with 5G devices.

Some choose to shy away from them completely.

And that's OK.

But we think that technology like 5G can also be helpful in our daily lives.

This is why our focus on Bodywell is to allow you to keep using today's devices...

While giving you peace of mind.

As you may know, our solutions have been shown to reduce radiation absorption by up to 80%

This is high enough to keep using your phone, laptop, tablet, and other devices...

While minimizing radiation exposure.

With that said:

You might wonder which of our solutions is the best for you.

Here's what I currently recommend:

  • Our 6-pack. Great option for anyone who uses their phone a lot (whether it's 5G or not) You get 6 Bodywell chips to use on your devices... while leaving you with enough to share with your kids, grandkids, and loved ones. Plus, if you get it today, you can save up to $300 (getting 6 chips separately would cost you $599.94 vs the $299.94 of the pack)
  • Our 3-pack. You might not need 6 chips and that's OK. You can get 3 chips instead. This way you can stick one to your phone and have a couple to share with your significant other or kid. Getting it today will save you $105, than if you bought 3 chips separately 
  • Our Biocard Pro. Keeping it next to you makes sure you absorb less radiation not just from phones... but any device in the area. It's great if you already have one of our other solutions... and are looking for the next step to protect yourself or your loved ones from radiation. It also easily slips into pockets, wallets, or bags... making it the most versatile solution we currently have. (Just please keep in mind that it might be a bit over some people's budgets so I recommend starting with our chips instead)
