5-G technology is coming or is already here in some areas of the US. Are you prepared for the potential consequences? Do you even know what the consequences could be?


“5-G Apocalypse” is a full-length video that aired on March 23, 2019 on YouTube. This 1-hour:17-minute documentary by Sacha Stone exposes the 5G existential threat to humanity in a way we never imagined possible. It discloses facts and potential consequences of 5-G and other forms of dirty electromagnetic fields. However, I don’t believe in the military conspiracy theory promoted in this video. But the other information presented is intriguing and eye-opening.



Dirty EMFs

Dirty electromagnetic fields are erratic spikes and surges of electrical energy traveling along power lines and building wiring where only standard 50/60-Hertz AC electricity should be. Dirty EMFs are damaging to cellular health.


Devices that continuously emit dirty EMF radiation include devices that we depend on daily – cellphones and cellphone towers, Wi-Fi routers and modems, baby monitors, and “smart” devices of all kinds in our home.


“1-G” was the first generation of wireless that allowed voice transmissions. “2-G” was the second generation that allowed both talk and text. “3-G” allowed the basic Internet. “4-G” allows our current use of the Internet. Now, there will be “5-G”, which will encompass high-density information transfer.


Amazingly, there has been no biological testing to prove that 5-G is safe. The FCC assumes that it will be safe. However, it’s interesting to reflect on what has been considered “safe’ in the past:

  • Physicians used to recommend Camel cigarettes to patients. How did that work out?
  • The American Dental Association (ADA) and the FDA continue to state that mercury amalgam fillings are safe in humans. How is that working out?
  • Monsanto and the FDA have approved the widespread use of RoundUp and glyphosate on farmers’ crops all over the US. How is that continuing to work out?



Effects of Dirty EMFs

Science has proven that continuous exposure to dirty electromagnetic fields will damage the DNA in our critical microbiome. Our microbiome in the gut, the brain, and other areas of the body are essential for normal bodily function. Exposure to continuous dirty EMFs is like a takedown of the operating system in human beings.


In addition to our healthy microbiome, there are thousands of peer-reviewed articles that prove continuous exposure to dirty EMFs will damage our human cells. In a paper published in 2018, researchers proved that daily exposure to EMFs emitted by cellphones will cause brain and heart cancer in rats.[1]


Martin Prall, PhD, is professor emeritus of biochemistry and basic medical sciences at Washington State University. He states in this video that the primary danger of EMFs is that they create mitochondrial damage, which is a significant driver in all forms of chronic disease. EMFs do this by damaging the normal function of calcium channeling in mitochondria. That will lead to excessive free-radical production in the mitochondria. Excessive free-radical production can lead to DNA damage, dysfunctional mitochondria, and the creation of systemic chronic inflammation. All these effects will have the potential to create chronic diseases throughout the body.


Damage to the body’s tissues from EMFs is cumulative over time. For the most part, a person may not feel anything wrong for months, years, or even decades. Sadly, children are at the greatest risk since their tissues are in the early stages of development. Also, their exposures begin much earlier (even in utero) and continue throughout life unless the daily dirty EMF exposure is eliminated or greatly reduced.


Our body is also an electrical communicator. One means for our body’s cells to communicate with one another is to use specific electrical levels and frequencies. Dirty EMFs in our environment can interfere with this electrial communication and thereby decrease our body’s ability to stay healthy.


Some of the harmful effects of dirty EMFs include:

  • Alzheimer’s
  • Anxiety
  • Autism
  • Brain fog
  • Burning sensations
  • Cancer
  • Depressed immune function
  • Depression
  • Dizziness and vertigo
  • Eye problems
  • Fertility problems
  • Frequent illnesses
  • Heart problems
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Insomnia
  • Memory loss



Protect Yourself

You could reduce your exposure to dirty EMFs by avoiding devices that emit them. You also could insulate your home, remove WiFi and replace it with hard-wired connections, and use various “filters” in your home to remove dirty EMFs from the wiring in your home. But, as soon as you walk outside or visit a neighbor or fly in an airplane, you will be exposed.


In my opinion, you also might want to consider repairing the mitochondria in your body that may have been damaged by external dirty EMFs. One way I do this is to use a Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Full Body Mat daily. Daily PEMF Therapy may be able to offset and repair the damage caused by those environmental dirty EMFs on my cells.


I have discussed PEMF Therapy in various articles in the past. Here are some links to my articles, where I also cite various peer-reviewed medical papers on the subject. HERE, HERE, HERE.


The Full Body Mat that I have selected over all of those in the marketplace is the mat imported from Germany and supplied by PureWave. This mat has the ability to filter out 50 Hertz to 60 Hertz damaging frequencies and to produce pulsed harmonic waves with no voltage spikes.

PEMF & Mitochondria
My Study of N=1

PEMF & Mitochondria





Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy may be a game-changer when it comes to the health of our mitochondria.

PEMFs are low-frequency, pulsating magnetic fields with wavelengths that can completely penetrate the body.  They are supportive to the body’s natural functions. PEMFs are different from dirty electromagnetic fields (EMFs), sometimes called “electro-smog”.

Dirty EMFs are constant and are contaminated with very high frequency, short-wavelength surges, all of which are damaging to cellular health. Some sources of dirty EMFs are power lines, metal plumbing, and wireless communication devices.

Mitochondria are organelles inside the cytoplasm of all the cells in our body except red blood cells. These mitochondria have various roles, one of which is the creation of energy so that our cells can function. Just as a flashlight requires fresh and strong batteries to shine its light brightly, so do our cells require healthy and peak-performing mitochondria to create the energy for our cells to do their jobs efficiently.


Creation of Energy

Most of the energy for our body is created in the mitochondria. Energy is produced through a biological process called the “Electron Transport Chain” (ETC). Electrons are transferred through the ETC in steps – starting with a protein complex called Complex 1 and then progressing to Complexes II, III and IV. The process ends with Complex V, where energy is produced in the form of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate).

If damage occurs in any of these Complexes, then there is dysfunction in the mitochondria. Dysfunctional mitochondria could lead to decreased ability for a cell to do what it was designed to do. Ultimately, chronic disease would be the result of dysfunctional mitochondria.


My Study of N=1

There is some evidence that PEMF therapy may improve the health of mitochondria.[1],[2] However, based on my search of PubMed, there has never been a study to demonstrate that damage to the ETC in mitochondria could be repaired by PEMF therapy.

One challenge has been that there was no non-invasive test to determine the health of the ETC in mitochondria – until now. A recently commercialized, non-invasive test for mitochondrial dysfunction is called MitoSwab Plus. I wrote about this test HERE.

I set out to do my own human research.

My wife was my test subject to study the effects of a PEMF Mat. While there are many PEMF devices in the marketplace today, some are not as “clean” and “biologic” as others. I chose the PureWave Full Body Therapy System

While I am reporting the results of only one person, I believe I had control of all potential “confounding factors”. The only change in my wife’s daily routine over the course of my continuing study was her sleeping on the PureWave PEMF Mat every night.

This PEMF mat has a shape and feel of a soft yoga mat. I placed the mat under the mattress-cover on our bed. The mat is controlled by a timer that turns itself on for a 24-minute session just after my wife goes to bed and then turns itself on for another 24-mintue session just before she wakes.

To begin, I tested her mitochondrial function at the start of this experiment and repeated the test 4 weeks later using the MitoSwab Plus test. The Lab results were impressive.



The baseline data at the start of my Study showed that her mitochondria-per-cell from the sample that was taken were overproducing mitochondria. The test also documented deficiencies in Complex I and Complex III. The overproduction of mitochondria was to compensate for her deficiencies in both complexes. I performed a second MitoSwab Plus test at the 4-week mark.

The results from the 4-week mitochondria test reported a significant decrease in the overproduction of mitochondria and significant improvements in both Complex I and Complex III.

I will continue to test my wife’s mitochondria over the next couple of months for more confirmation of improved mitochondrial function. However, these are only the results from one individual. I did not have any control group.


My Next Step

My next step will be to design a Protocol for a double-blind, randomized controlled trial to study the effects of the PureWave PEMF Mat on the health of the electron transport chain in mitochondria. Then, I will present it to an Institutional Review Board to get the ball rolling.

To prove the PureWave PEMF Mat is repairing the ETC in dysfunctional mitochondria, my Protocol will consist of a control group and an experimental group. The control group would lay on a mat that was not generating a magnetic field, and the experimental group would lay on a mat that was producing PEMFs. MitoSwab Plus testing would be performed at the beginning and at the end of the study period.

My goal at the completion of the study is to prove a causal relationship between PEMF therapy and the repair of dysfunctional mitochondria.
