5g network danger
What are risks of 5g? With the beginning of the fifth generation networks operating in some countries around the world, rumors and accusations began to appear through the media that they were unsafe and caused serious diseases.
This came in the recent period after the spread of a video of dead birds in the Netherlands and the claim that the cause of death was the fifth generation networks, but in fact it came different after much investigation about their death due to contamination of their food sources.
Nevertheless, after the truth was clarified, the question continued about the side effects caused by electromagnetic waves, and whether they have anything to do with serious diseases?
There are many factors to answer this question, such as knowing the bandwidth and the energy used in the waves of these networks. And by limping to clarify the meaning.
risks of 5g
Electromagnetic waves, with their higher frequencies and energy, are more energetic and tend to collide with the objects they encounter in contrast to the lower frequencies, which are less energetic and pass through most bodies without those collisions.
Therefore, we find that high-frequency waves are more dangerous to humans, because when they are higher than a certain frequency and with sufficient energy, they collide with DNA and cause changes that may harm the body and raise the rate of cancer.
The closest example to this phenomenon is what ultraviolet rays cause to human skin when exposed for a long time without protection, causing redness and inflammation to the skin, this redness is a product of the effect of ultraviolet rays on the DNA.
But electromagnetic waves in general are densely scattered all around us. Besides mobile phone networks and Wi-Fi, we find radio and television networks, microwaves – X-ray machines, and even sunlight and electric lamps.
All of these things emit electromagnetic waves, some of which may be harmful and others may be safe or less harmful.

But if the electromagnetic waves are currently spread in this dense form. Why all this fear of fifth generation networks?
The answer lies in the bandwidth of the networks, including the fourth generation networks, which depend on low frequencies between 400 MHz and 6 GHz, as well as communication towers that are at a far distance and with a low density, and thus they operate within the safe frequency range in addition to being not widespread.
But with the advent of 5G technologies that reach the used frequencies of up to 60 GHz, these high frequencies need a dense spread of the number of towers, connection points and coverage in addition to higher energy, but according to the research conducted so far, it is still within the safe space and completely far from the danger area.
According to this research, all frequencies up to 300 terahertz (that is, pre-ultraviolet rays) are safe for humans and do not cause cancer, but there are some who question the reliability of this research and that it is funded and biased towards telecommunications companies, but there are many independent research institutes. Reputed that agreed with the results of this research.
