March 2020 Briefing document for the Members and staff of the European Parliament, prepared by the EPRS – European Parliamentary Research Service, authored by Miroslava Karaboytcheva and titled “Effects of 5G wireless communication on human health” is an interesting read…

Few quotes from the document should make anyone interested in reading the full 11 pages of the document (emphasis added DL).

  • “Questions remain unanswered as to what 5G actually is, what it is for, whether it has impacts on human health and environment, whether it is secure, whether it offers good value for money or whether anyone will be prepared to pay for it.”
  • “As an alternative, according to some experts, fibre optics would be more secure, safe and offer higher speed than 5G. However, fibre optics are not wireless.”
  • “Considering the huge estimated investment, the mobile telecommunications industry needs to convince governments of 5G’s economic and social benefits and perform widespread marketing campaigns. ‘It suits the industry if policy-makers believe that there is a race between nations to be the first to launch 5G services”
  • “The EU telecommunications industry continues to state that the weight of evidence regarding harm from EMF exposures is inconclusive
  • “A certain divergence exists among scientists on the potential negative effects of EMF exposure and 5G. Experts rarely possess complementary backgrounds in both physics or engineering and medicine, therefore more complete scientific expertise could be achieved by combining research teams experienced in all relevant disciplines”
  • “One key problem is the unusual propagation phenomena, especially controlling and measuring radio frequency EMF exposure with Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) at millimetre wave frequencies for the handset and the base station
  • “Various studies suggest that 5G would affect the health of humans, plants, animals, insects, and microbes – and as 5G is an untested technology, a cautious approach would be prudent
  • “according to the IEMFA, a need to measure real potential exposure to 5G and update the safety limits of such exposure does exist. The alliance calls for more ICNIRP, NTP, Ramazziniresearch and scientific consent along these lines. It maintains that scientists with experience of long research into EMF health effects should be included in the SCENIHR
  • The European Commission has not yet conducted studies on the potential health risks of the 5G technology

Time will show whether the European Parliament will use advice of this briefing document…
