5G wireless technology is gradually making its way across the world and while many governments and telcos say that radiofrequency waves have no effect on human health, new and emerging studies are saying otherwise.

Impacts Of 5G On Human Health.

Electromagnetic Radiation

An electromagnetic field (EMF) is a field of energy that results from electromagnetic radiation, a form of energy that occurs as a result of the flow of electricity. Electric fields exist wherever there are power lines or outlets, whether the electricity is switched on or not. Magnetic fields are created only when electric currents flow. Together, these produce EMFs.

Electromagnetic radiation exists as a spectrum of different wavelengths and frequencies, which are measured in hertz (Hz). This term denotes the number of cycles per second.

Power lines operate between 50 and 60 Hz, which is at the lower end of the spectrum. These low-frequency waves, together with radio waves, microwaves, infrared radiation, and some of the ultraviolet spectrum,which take us into the megahertz (MHz), GHz, and terahertz spectra which make up what is known as nonionizing radiation.

Above this lie the petahertz and exahertz spectra, which include X-rays and gamma rays. These are types of ionizing radiation, which mean that they carry sufficient energy to break apart molecules and cause significant damage to the human body.

Radiofrequency EMFs (RF-EMFs) include all wavelengths from 30 kilohertz to 300 GHz. For the general public, exposure to RF-EMFs is mostly from handheld devices, such as cell phones and tablets, as well as from cell phone base stations, medical applications, and TV antennas.

The most well-established biological effect of RF-EMFs is heating.High doses of RF-EMFs can lead to a rise in the temperature of the exposed tissues, leading to burns and other damage. But heating also causes gene mutations and damage to the DNA in cells besides causing other cellular malfunctions.

But mobile devices emit RF-EMFs at low levels. But low RF-EMFs over times still causes cellular damage.
