The 5G radiation is bad for human health.

There is no evidence that 5G signals can adversely affect human health.

There is no evidence that 5G signals can adversely affect human health.All mobiles phones “operate in the radiofrequency range of the electromagnetic spectrum, from several hundred MHz to several GHz, to enable wireless phone calls and data transfer," according to the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), a global organization tasked with protecting the public and the environment from radiation. Like radios, TVs and microwaves, mobile networks do emit non-ionizing radiation at levels that are not harmful to human health, experts maintain.

The World Health Organization (WHO) also maintains that "unlike ionizing radiation such as X-rays or gamma rays," the electromagnetic fields created by mobile networks can "neither break chemical bonds nor cause ionization in the human body."

"A large number of studies have been performed over the last two decades to assess whether mobile phones pose a potential health risk. To date, no adverse health effects have been established as being caused by mobile phone use," the WHO states.
