“Halt the 5G rollout” journal of epidemiology and community health article on children and 5G

Article Calls to Halt 5G

“In assessing causal evidence in environmental epidemiology, Bradford Hill himself pointed out that ‘the whole picture matters;’ he argued against prioritizing any subset of his famous nine criteria for causation. One’s overall assessment of the likelihood that an exposure causes a health condition should take into account a wide variety of evidence, including ‘biological plausibility’. After reviewing the evidence cited above, the writer, an experienced physician-epidemiologist, is convinced that RF-EMFs may well have serious human health effects.” 

-John William Frank of Usher Institute, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health entitled “Electromagnetic fields, 5G and health: what about the precautionary principle?”

A new publication in the entitled “Electromagnetic fields, 5G and health: what about the precautionary principle?” by John William Frank of Usher InstituteUniversity of EdinburghEdinburgh, UK concludes that “one cannot dismiss the growing health concerns about RF-EMFs, especially in an era when higher population levels of exposure are occurring widely, due to the spatially dense transmitters which 5G systems require” and Frank ” echoes the calls of others for a moratorium on the further roll-out of 5G systems globally.”

The article identifies four “relevant sources of scientific uncertainty and concern”:

  • lack of clarity about precisely what technology is included in 5G;
  • a rapidly accumulating body of laboratory studies documenting disruptive in vitro and in vivo effects of RF-EMFs—but one with many gaps in it;
  • an almost total lack (as yet) of high-quality epidemiological studies of adverse human health effects from 5G EMF exposure specifically, but rapidly emerging epidemiological evidence of such effects from past generations of RF-EMF exposure;
  • persistent allegations that some national telecommunications regulatory authorities do not base their RF-EMF safety policies on the latest science, related to unmanaged conflicts of interest.
