This is in response to Dr Tracy Chandler’s recent article
about 5G which expressed concerns that 5G could be damaging to our health.
In my anaesthetic training we covered physics and electromagnetic spectrum. Non-ionising radiation is of the type that does not have any known health effects. This includes radios, microwaves, computers, and cellphones. These things are lower on the wavelength spectrum than visible light….ergo visible light has more of a potential to harm. Higher on the spectrum, with much sorter wavelengths are sunlight, x-rays, and the very short wavelengths involved in nuclear medicine.
So, in reality, we are constantly surrounded by a lot of electromagnetic frequencies from sunlight, radios, electricity and so on. It’s inescapable…so much so that the static we hear in between radio stations is the distant traces of electromagnetic frequencies from outer space. Here is a diagram that shows the various frequencies.
As a health professional I would not use a Stuff article as a credible source to open a discussion. The link Dr Chandler provides as evidence for the relationship between cellphones and cancer is nothing more than a collection of presentations and newspaper articles based on suppositions and wishful thinking for those prone to conspiracy theories.
The World Health Organisation states that Electomagentic Frequency Sensitivity is nothing more than an imaginary disease, as was proved by blinded studies. 5G was not used as crowd control. The frequency used was much shorter and powerful, more so than a microwave.
