Recent news and developments

“Based on our ongoing evaluation of this issue, the totality of the available scientific evidence continues to not support adverse health effects in humans caused by exposures at or under the current radiofrequency energy exposure limits.”

“Recent surveys have indicated that RF exposures from base stations and wireless technologies in publicly accessible areas (including schools and hospitals) are normally thousands of times below international standards . . . From all evidence accumulated so far, no adverse short- or long-term health effects have been shown to occur from the RF signals produced by base stations.”

“… although many studies have examined the potential health effects of non-ionizing radiation from radar, microwave ovens, cell phones, and other sources, there is currently no consistent evidence that non-ionizing radiation increases cancer risk in humans.”

Is 5G Safe?

“5G conspiracy theories are everywhere, but you don’t need to worry. Here are the details of why 5G is safe.”

I’m the scientist who sets the global guidelines on 5G safety. Take it from me: 5G doesn’t cause cancer or spread COVID-19.

“The science is really straightforward — there’s simply no solid evidence that anything other than a small amount of body heating may result from exposure to 5G radiofrequency fields,” he says.

No, 5G didn’t cause the coronavirus pandemic

Influencers and Russia have linked the virus sweeping the globe to the new, super-fast wireless technology. They’re wrong.

No, 5G Does Not Cause Coronavirus

…if you spend more than five minutes online, you’ll find someone shouting that 5G is the real cause of people’s illnesses. Simply put, these claims are factually false.

Smartphone radiation is not causing health issues, scientists say

The best-quality studies of radiofrequency radiation consistently show no evidence of negative health effects.

British politicians said the conspiracy theory and the violent acts it was causing were unacceptable.

Your 5G Phone Won’t Hurt You. But Russia Wants You To Think Otherwise.

Over the years, plenty of careful science has scrutinized wireless technology for potential health risks. Virtually all the data contradict the dire alarms, according to public officials, including those at the World Health Organization.

The 5G Health Hazard That Isn’t

How one scientist and his inaccurate chart led to unwarranted fears of wireless technology.

Some say 5G will cause cancer, but here’s why scientists say we do not need to worry

So radiation can be scary and deadly, but according to so many reputable organizations, we just don’t have good evidence cellphone radiation is causing us harm. 

Radiation from cellphones is not hazardous to your health, government scientists say

If you spend a lot of time on your mobile phone, you’ll be happy to learn that your habit isn’t hazardous to your health, according to a new government safety report. 

No, Mobile Phones Still Won’t Give You Brain Cancer

Like all previous incarnations of this tale, the real truth is that the evidence has been overblown and there is nothing to worry about.  

Do Cell Phones Cause Cancer?

The argument that cell phones cause cancer lacks biological plausibility because the energy contained in the waves is too low to cause damage.

How Worried Should You Be About The Health Risks Of 5G?

…everything we know about 5G networks tells us that there’s no reason to be alarmed. After all, there are many technologies we use every day with a substantially higher measurable risk. And as Dr. Novella says, “With 5G the hazard is low—but non-zero—and the actual risk appears to be zero. We’ve picked up no signal in the real world.” 

Comprehensive US cell phone safety study inches toward publication

The vast majority of cell phone safety research indicates there’s no problem with regular exposure to the radio-frequency radiation that cell phones use to communicate with towers.

Australian radiation safety agency fires back at 5G health fearmongering

5G is fine, ARPANSA has said, and a single study does not make for scientific consensus.

FCC Says 5G Doesn’t Pose New Cellphone-Radiation Threats

Agency maintains existing limits on radiation exposure from cellphones, network equipment

Don’t Fall Prey to Scaremongering about 5G

Activists cite low-quality studies in arguing radio-frequency radiation is dangerous, but the weight of evidence shows no risk

Worried About 5G’s Health Effects? Don’t Be

concerns over the potential health impacts of 5G are overblown.


No, there’s no evidence that cell phones give you cancer

In summary, the FDA said that there’s “no consistent pattern” to link radiofrequency radiation, or RFR, to tumors or cancer.


Cellphones don’t cause cancer, FDA says

The agency reviewed 125 studies published over the past decade and found that none of them showed that localized radio frequency radiation exposure could lead to adverse effects.


Everything you need to know about 5G conspiracy theories

…according to experts in the scientific and medical community, as well as the World Health Organization, 5G isn’t going to be a serious threat to our health.


5G—Don’t Worry About It

For technological advancement, 5G is a highly desirable enabling technology.
