Valuable lessons: 5G Network: How It Works, and Is It Dangerous?

Along from curiosity, we are in the surprise mode too.

  1. How the 5G gonna works?
  2. What would be the downloadable speed?
  3. May be concern about the rates (expenses).
  4. How it will impact the work towards the fast pace in this fourth industrial revolution?

I too excited. But the real issue we need to think is the health problems for humans and other creatures. For instance the radiations and heat in the 5G.

  1. How the human gonna manage it?
  2. The most important question is the other living creatures around the earth. Birds etc.
  3. How the birds gonna tolerate?
  4. What are the health hazards we need to care in-order to use 5G?

If the 5G will gonna make us smarter or even faster the work do. That’s sounds very good.  Let’s know about the consequences too.

It took me a while to have a reason to write a bit about the 5G. I was started researching and reading about the most relevant article from livescience website regarding 5G and the health issues too. In this article, I would like to share the glimpse of expert views from this article.

I will paste the source link down below. I sincerely encourage you all to visit further to read the full article.

“That’s significant because it will enable new applications that are just not possible today,” said Harish Krishnaswamy, an associate professor of electrical engineering at Columbia University in New York. “Just for an example, at gigabits per second data rates, you could potentially download a movie to your phone or tablet in a matter of seconds. Those type of data rates could enable virtual reality applications or autonomous driving cars.”

“With a massive amount of antennas — tens to hundreds of antennas at each base station — you can serve many different users at the same, increasing the data rate,” Krishnaswamy said. At the Columbia high-Speed and Millimeter-wave IC (COSMIC) lab, Krishnaswamy and his team designed chips that enable both millimeter wave and  MIMO technologies. “Millimeter-wave and massive MIMO are the two biggest technologies 5G will use to deliver the higher data rates and lower latency we expect to see.”

“There’s often confusion between ionizing and non-ionizing radiation because the term radiation is used for both,” said Kenneth Foster, a professor of bioengineering at Pennsylvania State University. “All light is radiation because it is simply energy moving through space. It’s ionizing radiation that is dangerous because it can break chemical bonds.”

In 2018, the National Toxicology Program released a decade-long study that found some evidence of an increase in brain and adrenal gland tumors in male rats exposed to the RF radiation emitted by 2G and 3G cellphones, but not in mice or female rats. The animals were exposed to levels of radiation four times higher than the maximum level permitted for human exposure.

“Everyone I know, including me, is recommending more research on 5G because there’s not a lot of toxicology studies with this technology,” Foster said.

“I think 5G will have a transformational impact on our lives and enable fundamentally new things,” Krishnaswamy said. “What those types of applications will be and what that impact is, we can’t say for sure right now. It could be something that takes us by surprise and really changes something for society. If history has taught us anything, then 5G will be another example of what wireless can do for us.”


With respect.
