“Let the world go through another two decades, I am sure embryos would already have a Facebook and Whatsapp account” a fun statement once given in a reality show. But to our horror, now this is fearfully turning true. Following are the Health Hazards Of 4G and 5G Networks:
A lot has been said about how the cell phone usage harms and puts us at risk of various diseases. But the much talked about 5G before the launch itself comes with a lot of warnings and cautions to health. Harmful effects of radio frequency radiations have been a concern since the 1980s. The time when the mobile phones first hit the market.
Though we all are super happy with 4G but there is no end to our greed ..eh? With a supersonic promising wireless connection, people are eagerly waiting for 5G to launch as fast as its speed is! But what remained unanticipated were the health hazards of 4G and 5G networks.
LA Times suggests that the super-fast 5G technology will dramatically increase the number of transmitters sending signals to cellphones. Plus a host of new Internet-enabled devices, including smart appliances and autonomous vehicles. And the move to the new technology comes after unsettling findings from a long-awaited federal government study of the cancer risk from cell phone use.
NTP Reports on health hazards of 4G and 5G networks
National Toxicology Program researchers released preliminary data in May that showed small increases in tumors in male rats exposed to cell phone radiation.
The rats were exposed to nine hours of radiation daily, in 10-minutes-on, 10-minutes-off intervals, over their whole bodies for two years. The researchers found increased incidences of rare brain and heart tumors starting at about the federally allowable level of cellphone radiation for brain exposure, with greater incidences at about two and four times those levels.
Extrapolating the results to humans will give complicated and puzzling findings. Why, for instance, did only male rats show increased tumor rates and not females? Final results will be out by the end of this year.
“I don’t think it’s clear that there are health risks, but it’s also not clear that there are no health risks,” said Leeka Kheifets, who is an epidemiology professor at UCLA’s Fielding School of Public Health who has studied the health effects of cellphone use.
The National Toxicology Program study “was just an indicator that more and better research is needed,” she said.
The prospect of more transmitters emitting radio frequency radiation has alarmed us about its effects on humans.
Well people, I can’t say stop using the phone altogether, however one can always limit for one’s own benefit.
