Impact of 5G technology on human and animal health

Question for written answer E-001204/2020
to the Commission
Rule 138
Pascal Arimont (PPE)

While 5G networks will certainly offer a much faster internet connection, many are wondering whether the technology poses a health risk. The radiation from 5G mobile phones might be harmful for animals and birds too; for example, high-frequency electromagnetic waves are said to alter insects’ body temperatures and impair their ability to orient themselves.

However, real-life studies in this area – also addressing the network densification that will accompany 5G’s deployment – are lacking.
