Abstract:

During recent years exposure to harmful Radiofrequency (RF) radiation has increased considerably. One reason is the implementation of the fifth generation, 5G, for wireless communication. There are no studies showing that 5G radiation exposure is not harmful to human health and the environment and that the limits by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) accepted by most countries are adequately protective for real life exposure situations. On the contrary, new case reports indicate development of the microwave syndrome in persons exposed to 5G although the radiation is far below these ICNIRP limits. ICNIRP is a self-appointed, industryfriendly and scientifically biased organization and its limits are supported by the telecommunications industry. The Scientific Committee on Health, Environmental and Emerging Risks (SCHEER) at the EU Commission has recently evaluated risks of RF radiation thereby recommending adoption of the highly controversial view by ICNIRP that protection only against biological effects caused by heating is sufficient. All non-thermal effects are dismissed although the evidence for these effects is substantial and convincing. The EU Commission has proposed a regulation called the Gigabit Infrastructure Act (GIA) that will facilitate deployment of 5G millimeter technology. This will favor the telecom industry, while the public will be exposed to increasing levels of RF radiation the combined effects of which have never been studied. GIA and SCHEER pave the way for much denser 5G infrastructure technology, mainly millimeter wave technology in the frequency range 26 GHz and higher, which can be anticipated to constitute a health hazard.
