The Netherlands: Testing Of 5G Wi-Fi Troubles Cows. Should We Be Concerned Too?

Testing Of 5G Wi-Fi Troubles Cows. Should We Be Concerned Too?
letsraiseawareness.org, 16 February 2017

5 Dutch dairy farmers in Stitswerd, Groningen, witnessed a mystery on Saturday, January 28. Several hundreds of cows from the 5 dairy farmers simultaneously started running riot without a clear cause. The cows bumped into each other and the fences of their cowshed. One of the farmers said that their behavior really looked like agony, so it was not just a moment of frustration for the cows, it was really a life or death situation.

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).
