There is no significant scientific research avaliable that has a direct cause of illness or cancer from 5G or any other RF exposure related to smartphones. If people are worried about the effects of RF they should reduce how much they use smart phones. Most countries do not see a risk associated with the RF in smartphones. The FCC and the WHO have limits in place that are stictly enforced to ensure the safety of the users of these devices. Even though 5G towers will be much more frequent then the older 4G towers, they will run at a lower power and will not increase the RF exposure by a significant amount.
- Many Health agencies have not found any adverse effects of 5G on health however some scientists are warning against the safety of 5G.
- The FCC has a limit on how much RF energy is allowed to be in an area and many places have adopted that limit; however, some countries and cities have a much lower limit on it in favor of being safe rather than sorry.
- Some groups are calling for a complete shutdown of the rollout of 5G in Europe, however the European Union thinks that is too drastic.
- Although many experiments have been conducted about RF energy, very few are directly related to safety and are at similar frequency as 5G.
- 5G uses very similar frequencies as the current 3G and 4G networks, so there is not as much of a difference.
- The best way to reduce the RF energy is to stay away from using a cell phone since that is when the user gets hit with the most RF energy.
- Many conspiracy theories are thinking that 5G is making you sick.
- There is no evidence of this claim
- A study on the effects of 5G on zebrafish did not show any negative results.
- Zebrafish are often used for human-like testing as they respond to radiation in a similar way
- 5G is currently in the category "possibly carcinogenic" which is the same category as coffee and pickled vegetables.
- Most people are worried about the fact that there are going to be towers every few blocks instead of every few miles,
but this allows them to run at a lower power and therefore have a smaller radius of high energy radiation.
- You only receive a higher than allowed dose of radiation if you are very close to the transponder.
- "When it comes to 5G and COVID-19, the evidence is crystal clear. There's absolutely nothing to these conspiracy theories."
- "most experts say more quality research is needed"
- The FCC has had regulations in place for many years and makes sure any devices in use near or close to the body must follow the regulations.
- They do not believe any scientific work shows that RF exposure causes cancer or other illnesses.
- "Consumers should remember that all wireless devices are certified"
- There are many ways to reduce RF exposure:
- Don't use wireless devices as much.
- Use a speakerphone instead of putting the device to your head.
- Text instead of calling people.
- Phones are tested at their maximum power level, they usually operate at a much lower level
- Pacemakers could be interfered with if they are near to a wireless device, this is the only significant risk the FCC identified under normal use.
- The limits the FCC sets have a significant safety buffer before it would actually harm anyone.
- "there is no consistent or credible scientific evidence of health problems caused by the exposure to radio frequency energy emitted by cell phones"
