5G and COVID-19: Feeding the “Invisible Enemy”

According to Dr. Martin Pall, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University, “Putting in tens of millions of 5G antennae without a single biological test of safety has got to be about the stupidest idea anyone has had in the history of the world.” 

When COVID-19 came to our shores, a flurry of videos appeared blaming electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs), specifically 5G, for the virus.

In response, according to the April 24, 2020 edition of The New Yorker, citizens burned or destroyed more than 20 5G cell phone towers in England. Clearly, 5G does not cause COVID-19. The issue is not whether EMF causes COVID-19, but whether it facilitates the spread of the virus, or other viruses for that matter. So, let’s examine the biological evidence.

The first barrier against the invasion of viruses is the cell plasma membrane. Each cell membrane has openings that allow movement of substances in and out.  Voltage gated calcium channels facilitate communication within the cell and between the cell and its surrounding environment. The voltage determines the number of calcium ions going through the channel, thereby regulating activities in the cell. Think of a cell as a city surrounded by a wall interacting with the surrounding countryside via different types of waterways. The channels have gates that control the inflow and outflow of materials through the wall to regulate a variety of processes within the city. Now imagine that those gates open and close via electric motors. This is one way to think about voltage gated calcium channels. (VGCCs)

VGCCs) are normally closed, but when subjected to minute voltages they open, allowing the higher concentrations of calcium outside the cells to enter the cells through the channel. Calcium channel blockers block VGCCs. For example, some calcium channel blockers reduce the calcium flow that excites the heart muscle. This reduces the force of contraction, reducing blood pressure.

The authors of a 2009 article in Cell write, “Calcium ions play a role in almost every step in the virus replication cycle.” Calcium is essential for virus entry, replication, and release from cells. Calcium channels are the route by which viruses enter the cell. One of the strategies viruses use is to open (activate) voltage gated calcium channels. This facilitates the infection process while increasing the likelihood of viral spread and the death of the host cells.  Scientists have known for some time that calcium channel blockers exhibit antiviral properties. Since the 1980s verapamil, a calcium channel blocker has been known to inhibit influenza A virus infectivity.

A May 12th, 2020, article in Cureus by Dr Isaac Solaimanzadeh demonstrates the effectiveness of calcium channel blockers in treating COVID-19. He retrospectively reviewed outcomes with elderly COVID-19 patients, 24 of whom had been given one of two calcium channel blockers (CCB), nifedipine or amlodipine, and 41 of whom were not. In the CCB patients, 12 survived (50%) and 12 (50%) did not. In the non CCB patients six survived (14.6%) and 35 (85.4%) did not (P<.01; p=0.0036). Four percent of the first group required intubation while 39 percent of the second required it (P<.01; p=0.0026).

Calcium channel blockers were significantly associated with improved mortality and a decreased risk for mechanical ventilation in these patients. They reduced viral load by restricting entry of calcium into the cells.

What could this possibly have to do with EMF? Quite a bit.  

Dr. Martin Pall states that over 20,000 scientific publications have reported substantial biological effects from EMF exposures well within current safety standards. These effects include male and female infertility; lowered melatonin/sleep disruption; cardiac changes; and diverse neuropsychiatric effects. They are primarily caused by activation of voltage gated calcium channels. Calcium channel blockers reduce these effects. He is the first to provide a comprehensive biological explanation how nonthermal EMFs, heretofore presumed to contain insufficient energy to affect cells, produce these effects. When an informed public demands it, extensive recalibration for safe industry standards will be required.

To summarize, both viruses and EMFs activate voltage gated calcium channels, facilitating viral entry into human cells. Calcium channel blockers inhibit this process. EMF avoidance may do the same. Interestingly, according to the CDC the number of people who tested positive for the flu virus in 2019 had never been higher. EMF levels have never been higher. Researcher need to quantify the extent to which EMFs contribute to viral spread. 

Activated calcium channels also activate something called potassium channels, causing inflammation. The much maligned drug hydroxychloroquine reduces inflammation caused by those channels. Inflammation is what kills COVID-19 patients.

A 5G future will allow mankind to download movies in just seconds instead of minutes. Meanwhile, EMFs, including 5G, may already be contributing to the spread of COVID-19 and the flu. Our species is promoting this throughout the world, and in Nevada City.
