And when I say “they will buy anything”, I mean both financially and believing nonsense.
It’s bad enough that conspiracy “theory” pinheads believe and spew nonsense. There are hilarious stories of people separating fools from their money. Remember the fools who bought Faraday cages to “protect their wi-fi”?
But it’s worse when the unscrupulous people don’t care if they hurt people. This might be worse than when companies in China used lead paint and melanine in products.
The Dutch authority for nuclear safety and radiation protection (ANVS) issued a warning about ten products it found gave off harmful ionising radiation.
It urged people not to use the products, which could cause harm with long-term wear.
There is no evidence that 5G networks are harmful to health.

“Don’t wear it any more, put it away safely and wait for the return instructions,” the ANVS said in a statement.
“The sellers in the Netherlands known to the ANVS have been told that the sale is prohibited and must be stopped immediately, and that they must inform their customers about this.”
Conspiracy theories have fuelled a market of “anti-5G” devices that are typically found to have no effect.
In May 2020, the UK’s Trading Standards sought to halt sales of a £339 USB stick that claimed to offer “protection” from 5G.
