We are celebrating the undoubted positive aspects linked to the use of this amazing new technology, to be applied in many different and heterogeneous fields of application, nevertheless we know that the introduction of fifth generation mobile telephony will give rise to new scenarios of exposure of the population to radio frequency electromagnetic fields that will be emitted in frequency bands (694-790 MHz, 3.6-3.8 GHz and 26.5-27.5 GHz) very different from those currently used for mobile telephony (from 800 MHz to 2.6 GHz).

Without prejudice to the impact of great innovation, utility and profit on a large scale (the auction, for example, will bring the State 6.4 billion euros in 4 years), some considerations on the possible harmful effects of 5G on primary health and the environment must be made.

In fact, studies published on the subject certainly do not tell us anything in relation to the impact and risks in the medium to long term, limiting themselves to a disclaimer ” available data does not suggest particular problems for the health of the population connected to the introduction of 5G” – therefore not in terms of certainty or robust probability of its harmlessness – only in the short term (see 5G electromagnetic emissions and health risks by Alessandro Polichetti – Centro Nazionale per la Protezione dalle Radiazioni e Fisica Computazionale, Istituto Superiore di Sanità, Rome).

This certainly stems from the fact that the frequencies that will be used for 5G have been the subject of fewer studies than those used by current telecommunications and broadcasting technologies.

Therefore, it is first and foremost essential that the introduction of this technology is accompanied by careful monitoring of exposure levels (as is already the case with current mobile phone technologies) and that research on possible long-term effects continues, possibly increasing.
