There’s no evidence 5G is going to harm our health, so let’s stop worrying about it

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Hype continues to surround the roll-out of 5G technology in Australia and across the world.

    While there is promise of faster network speeds, and talk of exciting technologies like driverless cars, there’s also a growing movement to stop the implementation of 5G due to concerns about the effects it may have on our health.

    But the scientific evidence we’ve got assures us there’s no reason to worry. The radio frequencies powering 5G will be well below the exposure limits known to cause harm.
