In response to the rumors of "5G radiation", in the latest industry forum, operators have come up with test data:
By comparing the electromagnetic radiation (EMF) tests of 3G, 4G, WiFi and 5G signals, it is found that the electromagnetic radiation levels of all mobile communication technologies including 5G are similar and far below the safety limit.
The report also tested 5G millimeter waves in an indoor environment and found that even in the 5G millimeter wave band, the electromagnetic radiation level is similar to that of 3G, 4G and WiFi, and is lower than the International Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection Committee standard.
At the meeting, the operator called on peers to increase popular science propaganda to prevent people from being misled by rumors.
With the 5G scale commercial approaching, a wave of 5G radiation rumors first spread in Europe, and even the phenomenon of organizationally blocking 5G construction.
Recently, the technology media Wired reported that there is a group in Europe called “Stop5G” that has produced a series of sensational “5G radiation” rumors, such as hundreds of birds mysterious near a 5G tower in the Netherlands. Death and widespread use of the Internet have caused people to panic about the upcoming 5G.
This report also believes that some 5G radiation rumors are "conspiracy theory", pointing out that the purpose behind the rumor communication organization can be far from being concerned with health.
British operator EE took the lead in commercial 5G in the UK on May 30, and became the victim of this wave of 5G radiation rumors.
In the UK, a “Stop 5G UK” organization with 13,000 members is spreading 5G radiation rumors through social media and calling on residents to stop 5G construction.
To this end, the operators did not blindly endure, but launched a "positive just" propaganda.
On the EE official website, the operator pointed out that since the launch of the mobile network in the 1980s, all wireless technologies have been launched under strict radio radiation regulations. For decades, many independent scientific expert groups and governments around the world have been launched. Institutions, standards organizations, and health authorities have conducted extensive research and regular review of these wireless signals, including 2G, 3G, 4G, WiFi, and the current 5G mid-band and millimeter-wave bands, and have reached the same scientific conclusions --- - No negative effects on human health were observed.
EE said that it is hoped that the public will recognize the difference between electromagnetic radiation and ionizing radiation.
The radiation range is divided by frequency, from low to high, with radio waves, microwaves, infrared rays, visible light, ultraviolet rays, X-rays, and gamma rays.
Mobile communication uses a frequency range of 300MHz to 300GHz. The current 5G frequency range is 450MHz to 53GHz. Its frequency and photon energy are far lower than infrared, visible light and ultraviolet rays from the sun. It is non-ionizing radiation and will not cause human health. hurt.
What is really harmful is that ionizing radiation, such as alpha rays, beta rays, and gamma rays, because of its high energy, destroys, breaks molecular bonds, changes cell structure, and causes disease.
Vodafone UK, another UK operator, plans to commercialize 5G in August, and they are also plagued by 5G radiation rumors.
Recently, Vodafone UK's chief technology officer publicly stated at a 5G press conference that 5G base station radiation will not affect human health.
He pointed out that indoor Wi-Fi has been deployed for many years, we have not found any health problems, and the 5G band currently used is close to or lower than the Wi-Fi band, of course, there will be no problem. Even in the future 5G millimeter wave band, there is no possibility of affecting human health problems.
From the European case, the 5G radiation rumor has become a roadblock for 5G construction. China has issued 5G licenses, and the 5G construction boom is about to open. The industry should increase popular science propaganda early to eliminate people's one-sided understanding of 5G electromagnetic radiation.
