Don’t worry, 5G is entirely safe say international radiation experts

Article | March 16, 2020

Yes, 5G is here and it’s making internet speeds faster and more reliable around the world. It’s also causing a few people to panic about radiation levels. And whether it causes the coronavirus, but that’s another story. Thankfully, the international regulator for radiation levels has given it the all-clear. The International Commission on Non‐Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) is a Germany-based scientific body assessing health risks of radio broadcasts. It has called for new guidelines on 5G but says that the even the most high-frequency 5G waves are far below the threshold for anything that would cause us harm.
