5G exposure may cause cancer, infertility and developmental defects

A research report presented to the European Parliament back
in July 2021 concluded that radiofrequency (RF) radiation,
emitted by 5G technology networks at 450 to 6000 megahertz,
may cause cancer (https://bit.ly/3yEfG2X), infertility and
developmental defects in embryos, fetuses and newborns.
The study titled "Health Impact of 5G" (https://bit.ly/3T4JApz)
used PubMed and electric and magnetic fields (EMF) portal
database. It found 950 papers on the carcinogenicity of RF-EMF
in humans and 2,834 papers on the reproductive and developmental
studies. (Related: 5G poses health risks; humans must limit exposure
to EMF, RF.)
The results show positive associations between exposure to RF
radiation from wireless phones and both glioma (also known as
a tumor of the brain) and acoustic neuroma. There was also sufficient
evidence of adverse effects on the fertility of men and limited
evidence of adverse effects on fertility in women, as well as
developmental effects in the offspring of mothers who were heavy
users of mobile phones during pregnancy.
In a study conducted in 2012 (https://bit.ly/3T7fx0c) and published
in the Journal of Environmental Engineering and Landscape
Management, researchers investigated RF power density levels from
antennas 35 meters away from a 10-story apartment building and
transmitting antennas were approximately at the same height as the
sixth floor. They found that the highest RF is on floors five
to seven, and that RF was three times higher on the sixth-floor
balcony than the third-floor balcony. The RF power density on the
sixth floor was about 15 times the RF measures on the first floor
(https://bit.ly/3T2RmQA).
A 2019 study published in Oncology Letters also found that apartments
with high RF exposure had outdoor areas as close as six meters from
cell antennas. In contrast, the low-exposure apartments balconies
were at least 40 meters away from cell antennas. Having found that
both properties had good mobile reception, they concluded that
"installation of base stations to risky places cannot be justified
using the good reception requirement argument."
Moreover, studies were also able to prove that outdoor levels of RF
are increasing from the densification of wireless networks due
to mobile phone base stations. According to a 2022 research
(https://bit.ly/3T5HOV6), positioning antennas should be "as far
as possible from the general public" like in high elevation locations
or remote areas.
A study published just this year in the World Academy of Sciences
Journal measured levels of RFR from 5G in the city of Columbia,
South Carolina. It concluded that the highest exposure areas were
due to two reasons. First, cell phone base antennas on top
of high-rise buildings provide good cell coverage reaching far away,
but creating elevated exposure to the RF-EMF at the immediate
vicinity; and second, cell phone base station antennas installed on
top of utility poles have placed the radiation source closer to
humans walking on street level.
"In the current circumstances, it seems that the scientific experts
in the field are very clear about the serious problems we are facing
and have expressed this through important appeals. However, the
media, the responsible organizations and the governments are not
transmitting this crucial information to the population, who remain
uninformed. For these reasons, the current situation will probably
end in a crisis," a group of researchers concluded in a recent study
(https://bit.ly/3g3A5bj).
Martin Bouygues, CEO of French telecom firm Bouygues, also
appealed to the government to postpone (https://bit.ly/3MwVc21)
auctions for 5G frequencies, citing the ongoing Wuhan coronavirus
(COVID-19) pandemic and public mistrust of the technology.
According to Nexus, France is planning on auctioning 5G frequencies
to telecom companies at the end of the summer. However, Bouygues
thinks that bidding should be pushed back to the end of the year
at the earliest.
"We need to push back the auction date simply because the economic
world today is not the same as it was early March when the terms
of the auction were set," Bouygues told Le Figaro back in May, adding
that holding a bidding war while France recovers "with difficulty
from a terrible human health and economic health nightmare" is
"not the priority of the country."
