What are the safety concerns about 5G?

No independent safety testing on full 5G frequency spectrum – there is still large scientific uncertainty as to whether there are potential serious health effects.

Over 240 scientists, many of whom are biophysicists, are warning of serious potential health effects of 5G- they are asking for the roll-out to come to an immediate halt.

ICNIPR (International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection) is a committee of 13 self-appointed representatives that sets internationally adopted safety limits for exposure to Electromagnetic Fields – these safety limits are being challenged by over 240 scientists, may of whom, biophysicists.

Low-level EMF exposure has been shown to cause cumulative damage to biological tissue, not immediate; this means it degrades the biological and homeostatic functions over time which could lead to a plethora of diseases and conditions that is hard to trace back to radiation as the cause.

Children are at most risk from EMF radiation exposure – this is due to their biological development stage of body’s tissues.

5g health safety research

‘From a Harvard Law Today 2011 article on a lecture given by Dr Franz Adlkofer to Harvard Law School: ‘In his lecture, “Protection Against Radiation is in Conflict with Science”, Adlkofer discussed the difficulties he and other scientists face when presenting research on the carcinogenic effects of electromagnetic fields emanating from cell phones. He also discussed the institutional corruption which he says obstructs their research … “The practices of institutional corruption in the area of wireless communication are of enormous concern,” said Adlkofer, … “Based on the unjustified trivializing reports distributed by the mass media by order and on account of the wireless communication industry, the general public cannot understand that its future wellbeing and health may be at stake. The people even distrust those scientists who warn. In democracies, it is a basic principle that above power, and its owners, are laws, rules, and regulations. Since in the area of wireless communication this principle has been severely violated it is in the interest of a democratic society to insist on its compliance.” Article:(https://today.law.harvard.edu/at-center-for-ethics-event-cell-phone-radiation-and-institutional-corruption-addressed-video/)

The three scientists’ appeals:

2015: The ‘EMF Appeal’ was sent to the UN, WHO, UNEP and all UN member states, requesting a lowering of current EMF guidelines and standards, stating that current standards are not biologically protective. The 206 signatories of the appeal were not just random scientists, they all had peer reviewed, published scientific papers (over two thousand papers collectively) on the biological effects of EMFs.  https://www.emfscientist.org/index.php/emf-scientist-appeal.

2017: the ‘5G Appeal’, this time addressed to the European Commission, warning of ‘potential serious health effects of 5G‘ and recommending a moratorium.

2018: ‘The EMF Call’, to the UN and WHO: ‘ICNIRP’s opinion and guidelines are unscientific and protect industry, not public health‘ It warned that the ICNIRP international guidelines on RF radiation (mobile phone radiation) are not protective and endanger people. ICNIRP guidelines are the guidelines the British Parliament references.

2. ‘THE EMF CALL’ APPEAL:  ‘ICNIRP’s opinion and guidelines are unscientific and protect industry, not public health.’ (ICNERP GUIDELINES, JULY 2018: https://www.icnirp.org/cms/upload/consultation_upload/ICNIRP_RF_Guidelines_PCD_Appendix_A_2018_07_11.pdf) ‘In order to protect the public and the environment from the known harmful effects from electromagnetic fields (EMF) we ask the United Nations, the World Health Organization and all governments not to accept the ICNIRP guidelines. They are not protective, rather they pose a serious risk to human health and the environment since they allow harmful exposure to the world population, including the most vulnerable, under the unscientific pretext that they are “protective”.

Qualitative and quantative changes of the blood and bone marrow composition and changes of the conditioned reflex activity, tissue respiration, activity of enzymes participating in the processes of tissue respiration and nucleic metabolism. The degree of unfavourable effect of millimetre waves depended on the duration of the radiation and individual characteristics of the organism.
