European Parliament: 5G Health Effects and Environmental Impacts

Over the last decades, novel wireless communication technologies, such as mobile telephones, cellular networks and Wi-Fi, have been developed at unparalleled speed. However, 5G, along with 3G and 4G, may also pose threats to human health and the environment. This article outlines the two STOA studies presented to the EU Parliament, which take stock of our present understanding of the impacts of 5G on health and the environment.

Planetary electromagnetic pollution: it is time to assess its impact

At a time when environmental health scientists tackle serious global issues such as climate change and chemical toxicants in public health, there is an urgent need to address so-called electrosmog. A genuine evidence-based approach to the risk assessment and regulation of anthropogenic electromagnetic fields will help the health of us all, as well as that of our planetary home.

Radiofrequency radiation injures trees around mobile phone base stations

Statistical analysis demonstrated that electromagnetic radiation from mobile phone masts is harmful for trees. These results are consistent with the fact that damage afflicted on trees by mobile phone towers usually start on one side, extending to the whole tree over time.

Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields on Insects

This report on high voltage, mobile communications and WLAN came to the conclusion that, in addition to pesticides and the loss of habitats, mobile communications radiation also has negative effects on insects and is therefore another factor in weakening the insect world.

ELECTROSMOG – The Health Effects of Microwave Pollution

ELECTROSMOG – The Health Effects of Microwave Pollution

This book was written by Dr Susan Pockett to explain how the telecommunications industry and the military have combined to blanket the world with electromagnetic waves of a sort that have never before been seen on planet Earth. Life evolved in the complete absence of these waves, so this development has become a serious bio-hazard.”
