People Are Buying “Radioactive” Jewelry to Protect Themselves From 5G

The Netherlands Authority for Nuclear Safety and Radiation Protection (ANVS) recently banned the sale of various so-called “anti-radiation” and “anti 5G” wearables that turned out to contain radioactive materials.

From pendants like the Quantum anti-5G to bracelets and even sleep masks, the internet is full of accessories that can allegedly protect wearers from 5G technology. While we currently have no scientific evidence that 5G is harmful to human health, or even that this sort of accessory can shield wearers from 5G signal, there are plenty of people willing to spend their money on them, just to be safe. After all, what’s the worse that can happen? You just end up with a useless product like those anti-5G USB sticks we featured a while back, right? Well, no. Apparently, by wearing this kind of jewelry, you can actually expose your body to demonstrably-harmful levels of radiation.

“Ionizing radiation can damage tissues and DNA,” ANVS explained in a press release. “The amount of radiation measured in the tested products is low. However, in the case of prolonged and continuous use, it can exceed the legal limit of skin exposure to radiation”

The problem is that products tested by the Dutch authority are designed to be worn constantly, and are in very close contact with the skin, which makes them more dangerous. Although many of these accessories are described as “anti-radiation”, they appear to have the opposite effect, exposing wearers to radiation.

Often misleadingly promoted as “negative ion” items with several health benefits, these anti-5G and anti-radiation accessories usually contain things like volcanic ash, titanium, tourmaline, zeolite, germanium and monazite sand, and naturally occurring radioactive elements, such as uranium and thorium.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 5G technology emits non-ionizing waves that, unlike radioactive materials, don’t damage DNA. They also don’t cause Covid, as some early-pandemic conspiracy theories claimed.
