  • Surprised you didnt say monitors when listing out devices with electromagnetic radiation.. Fun fact monitors also cause non-ionizing radiation and with proper software and sdr you can re-compile a image from a monitor over software radio which is pretty cool meaning if your within range you can view peoples monitors no software or hacking to the other persons machine at all needed. Its called the tempest effect.

  • Devra Davis (PhD MPH, post Doc from Johns Hopkins) links several studies (found at cancerresearchideas.cancer.gov) that make a compelling case that cell phones emit enough radiation to affect breast tissue if worn close to your chest, i.e. under a bra. There seems plenty of evidence that radio signals, over time, can cause cells to mutate.

  • if I'm being honest the solution to the argument about whether 5G and WiFi are bad for you I think it relates to how the media report on radiation its a spectrum if the media reported on atomic accidents or anything relating to nuclear anything using the term Ionizing Radiation rather than saying Radiation it would make people understand the whole thing better I feel

  • An Alcatel Cell R&D expert told me the thing not to do is hand-held mobile in the car. The metal car body weakens the received signal which cranks up the transmit power, which is further increased by reflections and resonances within the car cavity, then you hold it as close to your brain as possible. Some significant warming of the brain was detected in experiments and whatever that is, it is not good! And all that on top of the driver distraction issue! The tinfoil helmet idea looks better and better.

  • you forget to mention that the size of the holes and the thickness of the mesh has a big impact on the effectiveness at *certain frequencies* the rule of thumb is that the holes should not exceed 1/10th of the wavelength size. so at 5ghz, the wavelength is 6cm long so the mesh should have holes no larger than 6mm in diameter

  • I am most certainly not fear mongering 5g, but there really hasn't been any serious research into long term effects of constant exposure to EM like that found in 5G (or other similar signals). That doesn't mean it will cause problems, it just means we don't really know. And lets not act like only ionizing EM radiation is harmful, Ultra Violet radiation is not an 'ionizing radiation', but we know quite well that it is harmful (sunburn, skin cancer, etc). What makes me scratch my head is why 5g has gotten so much attention, we have absolutely been cranking out all types of EM fields pretty much since the industrial revolution, at all sorts of wavelengths. And there has been some grumbling in the past about things like high voltage electrical cables near houses, microwave ovens, cell phones, etc; most of the fear mongering has been quite fringe. Something about 5g has really captured the public's imagination.
