We know that in order to achieve high speed and stability, 5G phone networks must exploit a range of radio frequencies above 6 GHz. It is the frequency range commonly used for radars, medical and security equipment such as airport scanners. There are concerns that electromagnetic waves in this frequency range could harm human health.
But the new report by the Agency for Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety (ARPANSA) and Swinburne University of Technology, Australia now confirmed that in the low-level radio, even the waves above 6GHz is also safe enough for our biological bodies.
The report was made by surveying and re-evaluating all 138 studies and more than 100 5G wave experiments that scientists had previously conducted around the world.
“After reviewing all these studies, we don’t see any evidence that low frequency radio waves, like those used in 5G networks, pose a health risk. people, “said ARPANSA deputy director Ken Karipidis.
Studies that say harmful 5G networks are of low professional quality
To conclude, researchers at ARPANSA and Swinburne University of Technology examined all reports of genotoxicity (mutation), cell proliferation, gene expression, cell signaling, and function. Membrane function and other biological effects occur with biological bodies under exposure to 5G waves.
Although there are a handful of tests documenting some of the biological effects of low frequency waves above 6 GHz, these tests are almost impossible to replicate. Meaning that when another scientist repeated the experiment to check the previous team’s results, they found its results were incorrect.
Usually, the studies that say harmful 5G networks are studies of low professional quality, with errors in the implementation method and the control of the results is not strict.
” We recommend that the experimental design in future studies be improved, in particular, scientists [intending to point out the dangers of 5G networks] should pay attention to dose measurement and control the temperature [which cell phone waves cause to biological cells] , ”Karipidis said.
If these tests are well designed to meet the scientific standards, their results will be recognized. In addition, Karipidis said we should also carry out epidemiological studies to track the long-term [if any] impact of the 5G network on the health of the people exposed to it.
5G networks use frequency bands above 6 GHz but still in the low frequency range.
Wifi waves are more than 100 million times safer than the harmful threshold, phone waves are more than 500,000 times safer
Overall, two newly published studies are consistent with safety standards set by the International Commission for Non-Ionizing Radiation (ICNIRP) and widely applied around the world.
ARPANSA emphasizes that the types of electromagnetic waves used for wireless connections that people use are much lower than the threshold of harm to health. For example, Wi-Fi exposure is now only one-hundredth of a million harm threshold. Meanwhile, cell phone towers only emit waves 1 / 500,000 times lower than the harmful threshold.
It is not difficult to understand people with concerns about their safety in the face of new technology, the researchers said. But unlike what you can easily read on social media, all the scientific evidence gathered from hundreds of elaborate studies to date shows that 5G networks are very secure.
Even more later, the technology is improved and evaluated closely. That means 5G networks are even more secure than previous wireless phone networks like 2G networks, which have been killed by many countries.
Why are people still concerned about 5G networks?
” One of the main differences we see now is the excessive, even hysterical anxiety of many people that have been fueled by resources like social media. It’s something we don’t have. the moment the 2G came out , “ said ARPANSA director Sarah Loughran.
Information on social networks is often not well verified as scientific research done by large reputable organizations. However, they appear more pervasive and use language and conspiracy theories to create more trust in readers.
Among these, there are many misinformation about 5G networks that we see every day. Therefore, it is not difficult to explain why so many people are so concerned about this new telecommunications technology while scientists have said 5G networks are secure.
