Can 5G radiation actually make you sick, harm your health, or even kill you? Is 5G dangerous? Is 5G safe? Some interesting reports have emerged - we're here to deep dive 5G connections and wavelengths, and its potential effects (or lack of effects) on your body. 5G is rolling out to smartphone users across the world offering unprecedented speeds and connectivity but there are some concerns it could have adverse effects on our health. So what does the evidence say? Will 5G make us sick -- or is it a conspiracy theory that’s getting out of hand? CNET Science Editor Jackson Ryan takes a look at the current evidence.

5G still has a LONG way to go before it hits the public, and not all the research is out yet. Still, we'd love to hear what you think! Tinfoil hat theories and all ;)

Actually 5G is more important for mobile operators as they can reduce CAPEX and OPEX due to NFV and SDN technologies, changes on the Radio Access Network are not that big.

Cell phones were linked to cancer when they first came out due to the higher power microwave frequencies of the phones back in the day. Microwave radiation will make any molecule with water oscillate creating frictional heat. Just like a microwave oven. This includes human tissue. The amount of damage done to the tissue depends on the output power and/or the length of time the tissue is exposed to the frequency. There were many cases where patient's who had developed cancer in their head had themselves linked their cellphone usage to their cancer. Citing that they had remembered feeling heat in their heads when using their cellphones. Remember those brick phones back in the day when they first came out. Those phones had power outputs of 3 to 5 watts. Depending on the environment you were in you could be exposed to the highest output level all the time if you had a weak connection. If you were a heavy user and held the phone close to your head you were most likely at risk. By comparison today's cell phones usually use less that 100 milliwatts. This is 30-50 times less power output or more. I'm not sure this is a coincidence. Having said this todays cell phones do have much less power output which means they are safer. It's a tower's antennae you don't want to be too close to. The signal strength weakens with distance so try not to be too close to one if you can avoid it.

Phones get hot for the very same reason hi-powered LED flashlights get hot, idiot. Li-ion cells heat up under high current loads. Only IONIZING radiation is harmful to organic matter. 5G/wifi/microwaves/radar don't even come close to being in those ionizing frequency bands. Science 101. Funny how you anti-5G nut-jobs were never this concerned over all the weather & airport radar stations that have been in use for well over half a century. I mean, they use the same frequencies, and emit with FAR more power.

Poorly done video CNET. You should have discussed the cellar damage 5g can cause at higher levels. The question is what do low levels do when bombarded with it constantly? We still don’t really know the long term effects of 4g.

i have mercury poisoning and realized that i get terrible migraines and tinnitis with electrical frequencies now. the reason some people are fine and others suffer is due to heavy metal intake via processed foods, cavitations in our jaws, amalgam fillings, vaccines, and our water supply. Once all these things are handled, 5g wouldnt cause as much damage, but the majority of the population is heavy metal toxic and they dont even know. I reccomend taking probiotics to help

They can stick their 5G between their butt cheeks. Who ever believe their lies needs to wake up from their fairy tale. CNET is owned by our corrupted government. Even Trumps resort located at Palm Spring wont have 5G near him. Wake up sheeple. They want to fry your brains and controlled every move you make.

Someone walked by accident in front of a radar which was being tested,,, he immediately became sterile,,, thus radiation must change genes/cromozones. Perhaps it is designed to reduce the world population.... stay away from it until clear research has been conducted by independent researchers.

I am pretty sure this does not accurately represent the opposing arguments. It actually doesn't represent the real concerns at all. You might have just as well said that beach-balls shrinking are the concern of 5g. Way to mix it up dude, go go big corp!

All research is funded and/or driven by agenda... Ergo, no such thing as truly "independent" scientific testing. Besides, even if a truly independent body found no link between 5G and adverse health effects, you anti-5G nutters would still cry foul with the same old, boring excuses and arguments.

Hi Jackson. From what you have said, radiation becomes less and less harmful as the frequency increases. Please join with us to ban 60 hertz home wiring. Those low energy waves go completely through your body while the very high energy 5G is stopped by the skin.

The precautionary principle should apply. Keep it out of the environment until it is proven safe.

I covered my wi fi with a Faraday cloth and turn it off at night as a result I'm sleeping better than I have since I purchased it. I also had a friend that used to use his cell phone a lot and last I heard he developed cancer where the iPhone set. Roll your eyes all you want but there's something to this. Before I go I read on one of these posts that Trump has prohibited 5G in his properties in Florida.

If the telecommunications industry’s plans for 5G come to fruition, no person, no animal, no bird, no insect and no plant on Earth will be able to avoid exposure, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to levels of RF radiation that are tens to hundreds of times greater than what exists today, without any possibility of escape anywhere on the planet. These 5G plans threaten to provoke serious, irreversible effects on humans and permanent damage to all of the Earth’s ecosystems. But hey, you know this already obviously! Right?

This video is utterly fraudulent. Radiation is very bad for everyone’s health. 5G is dangerous to the next level. There have been ZERO studies or science to show it is safe. In fact what has been done has shown a clear link to cancer. Non ionizing is very dangerous. The health effects are slower and more subtle but very definitely present. Don’t believe the black propaganda of this video. This video is nothing but lies and baseless assertions.
