Petition in Delhi High Court against 5G technology

Petition in Delhi High Court against 5G technology

  • Juhi Chawla has moved the Delhi High Court seeking a scientific study on any adverse effects of radio-frequency radiation emitted by cellular telecommunications using 5G technology before its official rollout in the country.
  • 5G is the next generation of mobile broadband that will eventually replace, or at least augment 4G LTE connection.

Features and benefits of the 5G technology:

  • It operates in the millimeter-wave spectrum (30-300 GHz) which has the advantage of sending large amounts of data at very high speeds.
  • It operates in 3 bands, namely low, mid and high-frequency spectrum.
  • Its reduced latency will support new applications that leverage the power of 5G, the Internet of Things (IoT), and artificial intelligence.
  • Increased capacity on 5G networks can minimize the impact of load spikes, like those that take place during sporting events and news events.

Potential health risks from 5G

  • To date, and after much research performed, no adverse health effect has been causally linked with exposure to wireless technologies.
  • Tissue heating is the main mechanism of interaction between radiofrequency fields and the human body.
  • Radiofrequency exposure levels from current technologies result in negligible temperature rise in the human body.
  • As the frequency increases, there is less penetration into the body tissues and absorption of the energy becomes more confined to the surface of the body (skin and eye).
  • Provided that the overall exposure remains below international guidelines, no consequences for public health are anticipated.
