There is still no consensus among experts regarding the security and the effects of 5G mobile networks on health. While some insist on the absolute harmlessness of 5G, others report the effects of radio frequency radiation on health, citing various studies as evidence. Among the latter are specialists from the University of Oregon, who have proved the existence of 5G effects on living organisms. However, there is no particular reason to panic.
I mean, look at these questions people ask on the internet, and I also included a conspiracy theory to spice it up:
5G technology: Is it bad for our health?
Does 5G pose health risks?
Is 5G Dangerous or Harmful To Our Health?
We Have No Reason to Believe 5G Is Safe
People are saying coronavirus is a cover up for 5G
So, let’s go back to our topic and find out the recent developments about it. Researchers at the Oregon State University conducted a study that revealed some effect of 5G mobile networks on living organisms. However, the experimenters themselves admit that this radio frequency radiation is not as harmful as it seems to many.

The health effects of 5G mobile networks are not worrisome
Researchers conducted an experiment using zebrafish embryos. They are often used to detect the effects of various environmental influences on biological systems. Since fish and humans are characterized by similar development processes and they are similar at the genomic level, this means that the results of the study can be applied to humans.
During the experiment, the animals were exposed to radio waves at a frequency of 3.5GHz for two days, used in fifth-generation networks. As a result, the researchers did not find a significant effect on mortality, embryo development, or their response to light. There was only a recorded minor change in tests aimed at measuring the response of embryos to sudden sound.
Further research will be devoted to studying the effects of 5G on the same zebrafish that were used in the first experiment to learn about the possible effects on development from embryos to adults. Researchers would also like to evaluate the effect of higher frequencies on zebrafish. Now, scientists are sure that there is no particular reason for panic regarding fifth-generation networks.
