Few days ago two review articles on 5G millimeter-waves were published by scientists from Australia.

The articles in question appeared in the Journal of Exposure Science & Environmental Epidemiology, published by the prestigious British NATURE:

  1. ‘5G mobile networks and health – a state-of-the-science review of the research into low-level RF fields above 6 GHz.’ by Ken Karipidis, Rohan Mate, David Urban, Rick Tinker & Andrew Wood
  2. Meta-analysis of in vitro and in vivo studies of the biological effects of low-level millimetre waves.’ by Andrew Wood, Rohan Mate & Ken Karipidis

Australia’s ARPANSA has published a news story, on March 17, 2021, about both reviews and… boasted that the reviews are “World-first reviews into 5G radio waves”.

There is no doubt that in science being “the first” is important. Any scientist interviewed by a journalist gets a question “is this the first?”. However, it is good to be first but it is better to check beforehand that indeed something is “the first”.

ARPANSA claim of the “world-first reviews into 5G radio waves” is incorrect, and laughable. A simple check on PubMed database shows that in 2019 and 2020 were published reviews on 5G millimeter waves:…SNIP
