      Is 5G harmful for our health?

      Every time there is a technical innovation or updation, with it sprouts plenty of controversy too. Firstly, what is 5G?  This can be defined as the fifth generation of mobile technology. It's picking up currency across the globe and brings the advantages of faster browsing, streaming, increased
       download speeds and better connectivity. It seems the perfect update for our data hungry society.
      While many organisations claim that 5G will not affect health, some experts beg to differ. Here's what they are saying.

      Electromagnetic field or EMF is a field of energy that is produced due to electromagnetic radiation. Radio frequency EMF (RF-EMF) exposure for the average person is majorly from handheld devices like cell phones and tablets besides cell phone base stations, medical applications, and TV antennas.

      You might ask what harm this does. One of the key effects us that it causes heating. When one gets exposed to high doses of RF-EMFs, this will  increase the temperature of the exposed tissues resulting in burns and other damage. Mobile devices in general only transmit RF-EMFs at low levels. Should this be a cause for worry? The ongoing debate has been again restored by the arrival of 5G.

      Would RF-EMF's cause cancer?

      In 2011, 30 international scientists, who were on the working group of the International Agency for Research on Cancer held a meeting to assess and discuss if people ran the risk of developing cancer due to exposure to RF-EMFs. Small studies supported the premise of this leading to acoustic neuroma but the proof was not enough to conclude on other types of cancer.

      WHO states that till date, no adverse health effects from low level, long term exposure to radiofrequency or power frequency fields have been confirmed.
