Scientists have confirmed the effects of 5G on health. But don't worry

There is still no consensus among experts regarding the security of fifth-generation mobile networks. While some insist on the absolute harmlessness of 5G, others report on the health effects of radio frequency radiation, 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 for panic.

Employees at the University of Oregon conducted a study that nevertheless revealed some effect of fifth-generation networks on living organisms. However, the experimenters themselves admit that this radio frequency radiation is not as harmful as it seems to many.

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 emission at a frequency of 3.5 GHz 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.
