Potential Health Risks of 5G Wireless Technology

Potential Health Risks of 5G Wireless Technology

Dr. Lorrin Pang will be discussing the new 5G wireless technology that is being deployed across the nation. It promises to increase download speeds and better access to high-speed wireless internet services. However, the new technology relies on many small transceivers located much closer together than today’s cell towers.

Since these signals must be powerful enough to penetrate walls, they easily penetrate our bodies as well, which may prove unhealthy. While we know that exposure to high levels of electromagnetic radiation can cause health problems, including cancer, little testing has been done to determine the possible health impacts of these increasingly pervasive signals passing through the air…and our bodies. The effects of this radiation on public health have yet to undergo the rigors of long-term testing.

Adoption of 5G will mean more signals carrying more energy through the high-frequency spectrum, with more transmitters located closer to people’s homes and workplaces–basically a lot more (and more potent) radio frequency radiation flying around us. It’s no wonder that apprehension exists over potential risks, to both human and environmental health.


Dr. Lorrin Pang will discuss how 5G wireless technology differs from present-day cell towers and detail potential health risks he believes may be associated with it. Please join us!
