We do not know the possible health effects from 5G phone network says expert. Professor Dariusz Leszczynski says the effect of radiation from mobile networks is not understood. We are ignorant about about this but are blindly plowing ahead in order for big companies to make money. This is extremely short-sighted. Damage could be a painful sunburn all over your body.

More research needed potential health effects 5G mobile phone technology rolled Australia, international expert says.
high-speed mobile phone network operational Australia 2020, offering 50 times bandwidth currently available 4G networks, allowing users download equivalent three television episodes second.
Telstra announced last year would run world-first test technology visitors 2018 Commonwealth Games Gold Coast.
International radio frequency expert Professor Dariusz Leszczynski, University Helsinki, public lecture Griffith University Brisbane Thursday night lack understanding health effects.
"We radiation penetrates skin deep," Professor Leszczynski said.
"We faintest idea normal-functioning skin affected."
Australia's radiation safety government body, Australian Radiation Protection Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA), backed calls examine country's current radiation safety standards changed 5G rollout.
Research published agency's website said 5G technology penetrate skin depth millimetres.
ARPANSA assistant director Dr Ken Karipidis said research needed.
"At frequencies 5G operating, RF electromagnetic energy does penetrate further surface skin," Dr Karapidis said.
"Adverse health effects expected, current Australian Standard accounts these.
"Nevertheless, further research area required, particularly effects skin eyes."
Radio frequency emissions possible carcinogen
Professor Leszczynski one 30 experts international World Health Organisation research team 2011 classified radio frequency emissions possible carcinogen.
ARPANSA said Australian Radiofrequency Standard, based international guidelines, protected community harm.
Professor Leszczynski said examining health impacts technology rolled good enough.
"It appears having deja vu early 980s thought low-power emitting technology would safe, problems," he said.
"Thirty years later appears possibly carcinogenic."
ARPANSA said would individual university research labs pick agency's recommendations research 5G frequencies.
A Telstra spokesman said company ensured wireless networks comply Australian electromagnetic energy (EME) safety standards.
"We rely expert advice number national international health authorities, including ARPANSA World Health Organisation," spokesman said.
"Research EME, mobile phones health going many years.
" frequencies used 5G used radio frequency applications satellite radar decades … 5G wireless networks designed efficient minimise EME."
