5G and Health – Why People Think it is Dangerous
Some have been claiming that 5G radiation is dangerous for health, with all kinds of side effects, and even death. What are the effects of 5G wireless communication? Is it harmful? What are the dangers and health risks? Can it lead to cancer? Many people ask themselves these questions.
5G is the latest technology within wireless network. It is transmitting data between devices, like mobile phones. The energy used is called electromagnetic radiation. If you compare it to regular wireless networks, the 5G technology uses higher frequencies than the common ones today. This is why many people have been concerned of its dangerous effects for life and health.
Studies on 5G and Health by the European Union
There are limited studies made on 5G, and until recently, certain experts and governments have been trying to calm people down, rather than sharing their concerns. Nevertheless, recently, the European Parlament (EU) published a study, that was done in July 2021, where one has looked at the health impact of 5G, and wether it is dangerous in any way.
“Since 2011 a great number of studies have been performed, both epidemiological and experimental. The present review addresses the current knowledge regarding both carcinogenic and reproductive/developmental hazards of RF as exploited by 5G. There are various in vivo experimental and epidemiological studies on RF at a lower frequency range (450 to 6000 MHz), which also includes the frequencies used in previous generations’ broadband cellular networks, but very few (and inadequate) on the higher frequency range (24 to 100 GHz, centimetre/MMW).”
Looking at the facts, the European Parlament draws the following conclusions:
- ”Cancer: FR1 (450 to 6 000 MHz): EMF are probably carcinogenic for humans, in particular related to gliomas and acoustic neuromas; FR2 (24 to 100 GHz): no adequate studies were performed on the higher frequencies;
- Reproductive developmental effects: FR1 (450 to 6 000 MHz): these frequencies clearly affect male fertility and possibly female fertility too. They may have possible adverse effects on the development of embryos, foetuses and newborns; FR2 (24 to 100 GHz): no adequate studies were performed on non-thermal effects of the higher frequencies.”

Engineers Worried for How Dangerous 5G is
An engineer that I know, told me how he had been working with the development of 3G and 4G. He now shared his concerns with the development of 5G. I asked him if other people that work in the industry, are as worried as he is. “Oh yes, it is sickening”, he replied. He said that there are several people that have been working with this, that are greatly concerned for how 5G affects health, with such high frequencies.
Now when the EU published their study, I can see that his great concerns were valid. Another engineer, Kalle Hellberg, a former worker for the Swedish telecom company Ericsson, in a similar way admits:
“It is time to acknowledge what we who have been messing with this have known all along, that the massive expansion of wireless technology is completely reprehensible from a health point of view and should never have happened.”.
He too is pointing to the report from the EU, and are worried for the great health dangers this is leading to.
Unfortunately, the media is not writing much about the study on 5G and health by the European Union. (I have not seen anything at least). For me, it is concerning when both experts that have been long in the field + the EU is sharing the concerns for how 5G radiation can be dangerous. You can draw your own conclusions.
