5G is coming, and people are worried. Well, should we be?
To answer that question, we need to know what studies have been done on the safety of microwave-frequency digital radio transmissions.
We need to look at WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G, and 4G studies, as well!
After all, much of the concern about 5G is based on the results of those studies.
It turns out that there ARE a ton of studies out there that indicate that yes, it looks bad.
Of course, there is also the SAR “heating effect” argument, which is part of the problem as we’ll see…
Now, as bad as this stuff sounds, the fact is we need more studies – or rather, a thorough, long-term study with control groups, the proper consideration of other toxins, and so on.
In short, we need a continuation of the studies mentioned in these papers. At the moment, that seems unlikely to happen.
So, there you have it: Why I don’t like to use and be saturated in WiFi, Bluetooth, and cell phone signals!

And there you have it.
I can tell you from beeing a Ham radio operator we have less to worry about from WIFI and 5G from them non ionizing radiation then we do when we run our 1500 watt power amplifiers. i have had my wifi actually in my bedroom for the past 15 yrs and nothing has happened to me. i also have my ham station in my room and measure radiation in my room quit frequently and i have very low radiation in my room or house.
I’m a ham, too, and from what I’ve read, I am actually more worried about Wifi and 5G and the like than from analog signals at HF with an outside antenna – even at high powers. Part of the problem seems to be the kind of pulsed modulation of digital high-bandwidth transmissions, as opposed to more “gentle” analog voice transmissions. Also, as a ham you only transmit rarely, as opposed to your wifi router, smartphone etc.
Also, maybe you don’t notice anything, but 1) there are many people who seem to be more sensitive to it and 2) we have no clue about the long-term consequences. You might be interested in this TED talk from a Silicon Valley guy who talks about his own sensitivity and how he needed to come to terms with it because he couldn’t believe it at first: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0NEaPTu9oI
