    This is a conspiracy theory based on faulty understanding of science. 5G is no real difference from your current cell phone. If you put your cell phone to your ear this will be a bigger issue than the introduction of 5G. I would be more concerned about your microwave oven.

    I believe a bigger risk is when and individual goes over 50 MPH on the freeway

    Yes radio waves of high enough magnitude can cause problems but the FCC has studied the issue and established limits. There is nothing unique about the frequencies used by 5G.

    Any discussion regarding 5G health problems is off topic for this forum.

    Why Particularly 5g cells cause cancer? any harmful element init..... do you know. Actually mobiles and internet signal omit some radiations it harmful to our health we all know Its a general thing. But now mobile is part of living so we can't omit. Plz, share the reason for 5g cells if it is really dangerous there may be a chance to avoid that particular 5g cell products.

    Like the Flat Earth people.
    Anything they don't understand is a conspiracy.


    it’s not clear if cell phones cause cancer. Most studies done in the lab have supported the idea that Radio Frequency (RF) waves do not cause DNA damage.

    Most any attorney will tell you that everything causes cancer, and he will be glad to sue them for you.

    interesting but lacking in "tested" science to support its conclusions.
    Then again isn't that always the case? Think "Roundup" or baby powder or the Corvair?

    5G radiation is non-ionizing (like a microwave), meaning it does not cause cellular damage to organisms. It is also directional, meaning there will be less radiation than current 4G networks.

    If you are willing to eat something after microwaving it, you should have no issue with 5G.
