5G technology has been making a lot of noise lately, and it’s surrounded by controversy. It’s unfortunate when claims made about the safety of 5G technology, and wireless technology in general are done so without any supporting evidence because it simply furthers the idea that there are no safety concerns when it comes its potential impact on human health. There seems to be a lingering idea out there that 5G technology is completely safe and poses no threat to human health, and any information that does suggest and provide evidence for the claim seems to be constantly brushed off by the mainstream media.
For example, an article written in Forbes states “Fortunately, science already tells us that 5G almost certainly poses no danger to humans. Unless you value unfounded conspiracies over bona fide science.” This is a confusing statement, and in the eyes of many it seems to be false because there are countless amounts of doctors and scientists who have been publishing peer-reviewed science regarding the potential health impacts of 5G technology, as well as the wireless technology currently employed that predates 5G.
For example, A study published in 2019 in Frontiers in Public Health is one of many that raises concerns about 5G technology. It points out that “novel 5G technology is being rolled out in several densely populated cities, although potential chronic health or environmental impacts have not been evaluated and are not being followed.” It goes on to emphasize that the range and magnitude of potential impacts of 5G technologies are under-researched, although important biological outcomes have been reported with millimeter wavelength exposure.”
