The ongoing deployment of the 5th generation of the wireless communication technology (5G) is being met with a great enthusiasm by the telecommunication industry and national governments and the majority of the general public. However, there is also resistance from the part of the population in various locations around the globe. The opposition towards deployment of the 5G is caused by the uncertainty whether radiation emitted by the 5G networks and devices will have any effects on human health and environmental impact on fauna and flora.
This November, I will be lecturing for the first time in New Zealand. In my lectures I will present the current scientific knowledge as well as the current lack of scientific research on the biological and health effects of the 5G millimeter-waves. I will also present the evidence, and the reasoning, for the invocation of the Precautionary Principle and for the temporary moratorium on 5G deployment, while awaiting for the much needed scientific research on millimeter-waves.
