No evidence that 5G radiation is harmful to human health, experts say

A graphic purporting to detail health risks due to 5G-induced radiation has been published on various websites and shared hundreds of times on Facebook and Twitter. The image was shared as other hoaxes circulated claiming that COVID-19 is linked to the global rollout of 5G networks. The claim is misleading; radiation experts and health authorities maintain there is no evidence to suggest that the radiation emitted from 5G is harmful to human health.

The graphic was shared almost 100 times since it was published on Facebook here on April 10. It was posted on a Facebook page titled “We Say NO To 5G in Australia”, which has more than 18,000 followers.

The post’s caption reads: “#IDONOTCONSENTTO5G #stop5g”.

The graphic, which lists several diseases and ailments, is titled “EMF/ELF Radiation Health Risks”, which refers to extremely low frequency (ELF) electric and magnetic fields (EMF).

ELF EMF “exist wherever electricity is generated, transmitted or distributed in powerlines or cables, or used in electrical appliances,” according to the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency.

Below is a screenshot of the misleading post:

The graphic was also shared alongside similar references to 5G on Facebook here, on Twitter here and on various websites here and here.

The claim circulated as conspiracists promoted a similar theory that the COVID-19 pandemic is linked to the development of 5G, which has been rolled out around the world since 2019. The hoax resulted in 5G masts and cellular broadcasting towers being vandalised in the UK and the Netherlands.

The claim about 5G radiation is also misleading.

— Mobile phones, radiation and 5G —

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), an global organisation 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.

“A considerable amount of research has also been conducted on the relationship between RF EMF fields and other outcomes such as headaches, concentration difficulty, sleep quality, cognitive function, cardiovascular effects, etc. To date, this research has not shown any such health effects,” the ICNIRP added.

5G networks, which use higher-frequency radio waves to increase the speed of data transmission, have also been deemed safe.

“There are not any adverse health effects caused by exposure to 5G,” Rodney Croft, a professor at the University of Wollongong and an ICNIRP member, told AFP in an email on April 23. “’Radiation’ refers to both ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, and although ionizing radiation (such as from X-rays or nuclear reactions) can cause serious health effects such as cancer, non-ionizing radiation at the levels related to 5G cannot cause any health effects.”

Croft added that international regulations “restrict 5G exposures to levels” that cannot cause harm.

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.

  1. You had me following you until you quoted the WHO so now I don’t think I can trust your sourcing of information.

    • Let’s see here…….it seems that THERE WOULD BE NO “EVIDENCE OF HARM TO HUMANS” IF 5G HAS NEVER BEEN ROLLED OUT BEFORE. SHITARDS!!!

      and for the person I’m replying to, I could not find the “leave a comment” section so I opted to reply to the last comment. Sorry about that.

      Anyway…… DO THESE IDIOTS HONESTLY THINK EVERYONE BUYS INTO THEIR BULL$H!T???? I KNOW IM MUCH SMARTER THAR THAT…..THEREFORE THERE ARE MANY MILLIONS SMARTER THAT WILL NEVER BUY INTO IT EITHER!!!
      This shit just pisses me off. I don’t need my phone to be any faster OR give more options. HELL I don’t use all the options I have on my current device!! These shitards!!!!!

    • 5G radiation makes the cells in the human body
      pourius & causes peroxy nitrates to form. To say that the FCC & Ajit Pai are the authority on the health affects of 5G radiation is insane!!! Listen to an expert:

      https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=j-UEuOYOED4

      5G radiation is dangerous for humans & all living things on planet earth!!! Awaken author of this worthless article!!! You are a fool for backing the false big telecom industry narrative about how great 5G is!!! Repent from your lies & get right before YAHWEH!!!

  2. Their not sure or without a doubt that this Coronavirus could be transmitted during SEX? Well in my recollection while in the progress of enjoying sex you and your partner are only inches apart, not at least’. Is the world all stupid?

  3. Maybe we should get a court order to force the so called experts to sit and be subjected to 5G radiation for several hours every day and then see if they are telling the truth.

  4. EMF are very dengerous; devices should be used cautiously. This s true for everyone but, especially, young people. I have been harassed electromagnetically for several years , and I have tried hard to shield myself. I use a heavy metal pan and layers of heavy plastic on my head, but, steel, the bombing of electromagnetic penetrates. I have and continue to have all sorts of physical problems which the doctors refuse to accept as the consequences of EMF. This is understandable since they are completely to the darkness on the danger of EMF. I am so scared now for my brain since the perpetrator is at night constantly attaching my head. My neck and my head are painful. The reason I keep going to the doctors is to make my daughter happy since she refuses to believe in the electromagnetic harassment. I am 80 years old, and these electronic attaches have been going on since 2011. A young person especially, but old ones also, can be terrible hurt by EMF.

  5. Who’s paying you? Who’s your minder?

  6. these are not the pictures I ve seen on some studies, and a already stated, I trust nothing WHO endorses. I do understand some science. There have been studies since the 70’s with EMR revealing cellular changes

  7. And WE THE PEOPLE not the SHEEPLE can understand exactly what is happening Thank you Mother Goose for the story

  8. What a load of b……x!
    So, a handful of people who have not the vaguest idea what they’re talking about have copied this nonsense onto facebook and that, somehow, makes it true????????

    What have you been smoking, my friend? I would find another dealer if I were you.

    You “report” doesn’t even mention 5G yet it’s supposed to “prove” it harmless??
    Time you took a course in primary school where you can learn to sort reality from fairy tales.

    Blessed be

  9. Well if 4G was proven to be a cause of excessive radiation at its total radiation caused when transmitting , then imagine what 5G has at 400 x strong than 4G . Food for thought geniuses …..

  10. Let’s see here…….it seems that THERE WOULD BE NO “EVIDENCE OF HARM TO HUMANS” IF 5G HAS NEVER BEEN ROLLED OUT BEFORE. SHITARDS!!!
    What do they take us for?

    DO THESE IDIOTS HONESTLY THINK EVERYONE BUYS INTO THEIR BULL$H!T???? I KNOW IM MUCH SMARTER THAR THAT…..THEREFORE THERE ARE MANY MILLIONS SMARTER THAT WILL NEVER BUY INTO IT EITHER!!!
    This shit just pisses me off. I don’t need my phone to be any faster OR give more options. HELL I don’t use all the options I have on my current device!!

  11. Please review the research on the effect of 5 G on the electron orbits around the O2 molecule. Its disruptive to the point where hemoglobin molecule is not able to carry effectively its normal O2 load

  12. I have a question

    When can we start requiring lie-detector results before politicians/scientists/FBI/CIA/DOJ/Congress-people want to “testify” to something?

  13. One link, with hundreds of cites to SCIENCE journal reports that demonstrate effects and damage to various and multiple human body systems:
