Health hazard: 5G exposure may cause cancer, infertility and developmental defects

A research report presented to the European Parliament back in July 2021 concluded that radiofrequency (RF) radiation, emitted by 5G technology networks at 450 to 6000 megahertz, may cause cancer, infertility and developmental defects in embryos, fetuses and newborns.

The study titled “Health Impact of 5G” used PubMed and electric and magnetic fields (EMF) portal database. It found 950 papers on the carcinogenicity of RF-EMF in humans and 2,834 papers on the reproductive and developmental studies. (Related: 5G poses health risks; humans must limit exposure to EMF, RF.)

The results show positive associations between exposure to RF radiation from wireless phones and both glioma (also known as a tumor of the brain) and acoustic neuroma. There was also sufficient evidence of adverse effects on the fertility of men and limited evidence of adverse effects on fertility in women, as well as developmental effects in the offspring of mothers who were heavy users of mobile phones during pregnancy.

Several papers also found higher exposure to RF in buildings located close to cell towers and antennas.

In a study conducted in 2012 and published in the Journal of Environmental Engineering and Landscape Management, researchers investigated RF power density levels from antennas 35 meters away from a 10-story apartment building and transmitting antennas were approximately at the same height as the sixth floor. They found that the highest RF is on floors five to seven, and that RF was three times higher on the sixth-floor balcony than the third-floor balcony. The RF power density on the sixth floor was about 15 times the RF measures on the first floor.


A 2019 study published in Oncology Letters also found that apartments with high RF exposure had outdoor areas as close as six meters from cell antennas. In contrast, the low-exposure apartments’ balconies were at least 40 meters away from cell antennas. Having found that both properties had good mobile reception, they concluded that “installation of base stations to risky places cannot be justified using the good reception requirement argument.”

Moreover, studies were also able to prove that outdoor levels of RF are increasing from the densification of wireless networks due to mobile phone base stations. According to a 2022 research, positioning antennas should be “as far as possible from the general public” like in high elevation locations or remote areas.

A study published just this year in the World Academy of Sciences Journal measured levels of RFR from 5G in the city of Columbia, South Carolina. It concluded that the highest exposure areas were due to two reasons. First, cell phone base antennas on top of high-rise buildings provide good cell coverage reaching far away, but creating elevated exposure to the RF-EMF at the immediate vicinity; and second, cell phone base station antennas installed on top of utility poles have placed the radiation source closer to humans walking on street level.

Scientists, telecom exec call for moratorium on 5G

Experts and even a telecom industry executive have called for a moratorium on 5G.

“In the current circumstances, it seems that the scientific experts in the field are very clear about the serious problems we are facing and have expressed this through important appeals. However, the media, the responsible organizations and the governments are not transmitting this crucial information to the population, who remain uninformed. For these reasons, the current situation will probably end in a crisis,” a group of researchers concluded in a recent study.

Martin Bouygues, CEO of French telecom firm Bouygues, also appealed to the government to postpone auctions for 5G frequencies, citing the ongoing Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and public mistrust of the technology.

According to Nexus, France is planning on auctioning 5G frequencies to telecom companies at the end of the summer. However, Bouygues thinks that bidding should be pushed back to the end of the year at the earliest.

“We need to push back the auction date simply because the economic world today is not the same as it was early March when the terms of the auction were set,” Bouygues told Le Figaro back in May, adding that holding a bidding war while France recovers “with difficulty from a terrible human health and economic health nightmare” is “not the priority of the country.”
