I keep reading on facebook that 5g is not safe and will harm plant and animal life. Can anyone refer me to any scientific papers to put my mind at rest.

@Pondlife Must be true is you read it on Facebook then and no government in the world would allow 5G in their country, oh wait a minute.

@Pondlife I've not heard that one before. I've only heard the scaremongering racist xenophobia about the Chinese.
Anyway, the real danger to animal and plant life is the "elephant in the room" that no one dares mention - namely an all consuming 9 billion human population and no recognition or debate about it.

The World Health Organisation has stated that there is no evidence to convince experts that using mobile devices and masts pose any health risks - this includes 5G.
You can find out more about how we’re committed to providing a safe and responsible mobile network.

But in response to your answer: I have read that there have not been any tests to establish safe levels of 5g as regards the telecoms industry. Therefore the World Health Organisation have not had safety studies to look at. There is no evidence either way as no studies have been undertaken. As I said initially - can someone point me in the direction of studies that show 5g is safe for animals and plants please - I really want to feel reassured but so far I don't.

@Pondlife This is just a public forum and your wanting an answer that at present this public forum can not answer.

Lots of research has been done, and the World Health Organisation has found that no health risks have been established from exposure to the low-level radio signals used for mobile communications – this includes 5G.
We deploy all mobile technologies in strict adherence to the limits set by the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection, as recognised by the UK Government.
