5G network 'not proven to be safe', says leading scientist image

A leading scientist has warned that the safety of the new 5G cellphone network has not been proven—and it could pose a threat to the health of millions of people exposed to the powerful EMF (electromagnetic field) levels from phones and masts.

Joel M Moskowitz, a director at the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley, is calling for a halt to the roll-out of the new network until independent research establishes its safety.

"Since 5G is a new technology, there is no research on health effects, so we are 'flying blind'," he said. He says there is "considerable evidence" about the dangers from the early 2G and 3G technology, but a lack of government funding has limited independent research into the 4G networks, even though they were introduced 10 years ago.

"We are seeing increases in certain types of head and neck tumors in tumor registries, which may be at least partially attributable to the proliferation of cell phone radiation," he says. The increases are consistent with results from case-control studies of tumor risk in people who constantly use their cell phones.

Dr Moskovitch has been researching the impact of wireless radiation on health after he co-authored a research paper that concluded that longterm users of cell phones were at greater risk of developing brain tumors. He runs an electromagnetic radiation safety website ( and is an unpaid adviser to the international EMF Scientist Appeal—which includes 250 scientists calling for a moratorium on the roll-out of the 5G network—and Physicians for Safe Technology.
