New health hazards uncovered around 5G mobile network

New health hazards uncovered around 5G mobile network image

A group of scientists and doctors is renewing its campaign to delay the roll-out of the new 5G mobile (cell) phone network after new studies have revealed more potential health hazards.

The 230 scientists from around the world say the electro-magnetic fields generated by the 5G (fifth-generation) network can increase the risk of cancer, affect fertility, and cause neurological disorders, such as learning and memory problems, and even Alzheimer's disease.

The group—called the 5G Appeal—is asking the European Union to halt the development of the new network until independent studies, not funded by the mobile phone industry, can evaluate the impact of the technology on human health, and especially on infants and young children. The group had previously appealed to the United Nations and governments to encourage the World Health Organization (WHO) to "exert strong leadership in fostering the development of more protective EMF guidelines."

The scientists are especially worried about the 5G radiation because it is effective only across short distances, which means more masts will need to be installed—possibly one for every 12 houses in urban areas—that will "massively" increase exposure to EMFs.

They launched their campaign in 2015 but have renewed their calls for a moratorium on the 5G network roll-out following the publication of a new report from the National Toxicology Program (NTP). NTP researchers discovered "statistically significant" increases in the rates of brain and heart cancers in animals exposed to EMF levels that are well below the current safe limits. They have also noted that EMFs are harming animal and plant life.
