Even more shocking is that the farmers all have experienced these panic attacks from their cows several times before, for the lasts few months. However, these kinds of mysterious events only seem to occur around the small town called Stitswerd.
It was speculated that a raptor bird might have caused the panic attack, however, this can’t be true since it happened at 5 dairy farms simultaneously. A veterinarian has been consulted as well, but she couldn’t find an explanation either. Another possibility is that an earthquake scared the cows, but none of the farmers felt anything themselves. Besides, cows in Groningen should be used to earthquakes due to the regular gas drilling in the province (which is progressively destructive to the land and houses of Groningen by the way, damn fossil fuels!).
The most logical conclusion is that the panic attacks are caused by the recent testing of 5G Wi-Fi in the North of Groningen, exactly were Stitswerd is located! Groningen is the first flat land region where they are testing 5G. Other places are Finland and South-Korea, but there they are testing in urban regions. 5G is being tested on urban and flat land because on flat land there are no obstacles to influence the network signals. Additionally, 5G can be used for self-driving agricultural machinery and to moderate the farming soil and such.
5G is way better than 4G in the aspects of network speed and capacity.
However, one can logically conclude that the dangerous side effects of 5G are greater as well, although this has not been proven yet. Wireless devices give off electromagnetic radiation in a low gigahertz frequency (aka EMF). This radiation is considered potentially dangerous to people. Depending on the level and length of exposure, health risks can range from insomnia and headaches to tumours. Mention that most of us are exposed to EMF continuously, day and night, from multiple sources; cell phones, Wi-Fi routers, PC’s, cell towers, Power Lines, and more.
Cows in Groningen are less used to EMF because they live in the most remote region of The Netherlands, so they might feel the harmful effects better than most of us. It is also possible that cows, in general, are more sensitive to EMF than humans, just like how some animals can feel stormy weather coming before a single raindrop has hit the ground. One could also imagine that a sudden boost of EMF, with the 5G testing, hits the cows hard and scares them or even causes instant headaches. Keep in mind that these cows might have never been exposed to much EMF at all; they live around the small town Stitswerd, which inhabits just over a hundred people.
These speculations have not been confirmed by the promoters of the 5G Wi-Fi testing in Groningen, in fact, any possible harmful effects are not even mentioned. (The group of promoters includes: KPN, het Economic Board Groningen, het Agentschap Telecom, Vodafone, Ericsson, TNO, Huawei, de Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, SURF en de Hanzehogeschool Groningen)
Whether these speculations are right or wrong, fact remains that EMF is dangerous for humans (and cows), so what can we do to reduce exposure? Simply turning off your Wi-Fi router, PC and cell phone sounds like the obvious solution, but then you’re still affected by EMF from other people’s devices, not to mention the cell towers and power lines everywhere. Besides, you can’t read this article without the use of your PC.
Here are things you can do to reduce EMF exposure:
– Remove electronics from your bedroom.
You hopefully spend a good 8 hours per night in your bedroom, so by removing as much electronic devices as possible, the length of exposure is reduced significantly.
– Distance yourself from EMF sources.
The closer you are to a Wi-Fi router or any other source of EMF the stronger the exposure is. Place your router far away from your lazy chair and you’re already well on your way.
– Spend less time in front of electronics.
Like it or not, your PC, TV, and cell phone emit EMF as well. Try to reduce long-time exposure.
– Turn off electronics when possible.
When you’re done watching TV, turn it off. At night, turn off your Wi-Fi router as well, maybe ask your neighbour to do the same.
– Shield yourself and your house.
There are several ways to shield yourself and your house from EMF, with EMF reflectors or absorbers for instance. And you could use an EMF blocking case for your cell phone.
– Wear a crystal necklace or place crystals around your house.
Black Tourmaline, Shungite, and Orgonite are the best crystals you can use to eliminate EMF from your surroundings. These crystals basically turn negative energy (from EMF) into positive energy and are therefore actually healthy for you. Shungite is more of a neutralizer, but has many other health benefits as well. Himalayan salt lamps are also great for blocking EMF.
Even better than reducing exposure to EMF would be to replace Wi-Fi with a safer wireless internet system. And surprisingly enough there is: Li-Fi is a wireless system that uses light to send and receive information. Li-Fi is faster, safer, and more energy-efficient than Wi-Fi. And there is no EMF emission at all! A disadvantage of Li-Fi is that it can not be used in the dark since it uses visible light to transport information. Also, light can not go through walls, so Li-Fi can’t either. But an extra station would fix this problem. The aim, for now, is to use Wi-Fi and Li-Fi and to make use of the advantages of both. Last but not least, the question remains: Should we be concerned about the probable implementation of 5G Wi-Fi in the near future? Share your thoughts in the comments!
