5G uses less energy and does not negatively affects the climate. 5G is more efficient than previous technologies and requires less energy than 4G.
The French agricultural research confederation centre of expertise advised, “None of the studies conducted on the topic to date have been able to establish that electromagnetic pollution is a problem for bees.”
Based on current scientific knowledge and after 30 years of research, there is no proof of health issues due to antennas if the limits are observed.
Based on current scientific information, it is not possible to establish a link between mobile telephony radiation and potential health problems.
As with any new technology, the amount of information about 5G is a lot – and some of it is potentially misleading. Our learning 5G page takes you through some of the key topics like 5G vs 4G and health and safety.
