5G technology is being implemented in all major cities in the United States with promises of a faster and better internet. “It’s going to be data that’s faster and more of it, but it also enables the connection of more devices to the network,” says Jonathan Adelstein of the Wireless Infrastructure Association. The new technology is called “4G on steroids” in the wireless industry but the new technology could bring some health issues
Professor Martin Pall, who holds a physics degree from Johns Hopkins University and a Ph.D. in biochemistry and genetics at the California Institute of technologies, is pretty concerned about radiations from cell phones that he doesn’t even use a phone. His house is equipped with a computer, mouse, and keyboard, all of which are connected through wire and he even wears a special EMF resistant fabric. “I’ve got both the life sciences and the physics,” says Pall. “It’s the way in which these two interact, which is crucial for understanding how EMF impacts the cells of our bodies.”
According to scientific studies, these could create neuropsychiatric effects, reproductive problems, sleeplessness, headaches, etc.. This isn’t just the concern of one scientist, but various activist groups are talking about the situation around the globe. The U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences; a working group under the World Health Organization (the International Agency for Research on Cancer), and the European Commission Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks— which studied cell phones in particular has linked EMFs to childhood leukaemia.
Even though, Cell phone industry states that there is nothing to be worried off; after going through various case files the Food and Drug Administration recently told congress “the current safety limits for cell phone radiation remain acceptable for protecting the public health.” FDA has also asked the cell phone industry to support new researchers regarding cell phone safety. The 5G deployment is going in full throttle without further studies.
