>>108382842>It's something like the intensity of the radio waves is absurdly higher. Earpods are already getting warnings from doctors that the wireless signal going through your brain might cause cancer. Now imagine something like 5g where you'd have a far greater amount (I forget the #, but think at least 50x at minimum) you're exposed to without the technology having been around long enough to do a proper study and the signal is constant.
5G works by using higher frequency radio waves, aye, but they aren't at any realistic risk of causing you cancer because it is fundamentally still the same shit as 4, 3, 2 and 1 G all were. Cancer is caused by ionising radiation, X-rays and Gamma rays for example, both of which are much higher energetic forms of wave than a radio wave (radio < micro < infrared < visible light < ultra violet < X-rays < gamma rays) which is why sunlight, which contains ultra-violet radiation, can cause skin cancer amongst other things.
A radio wave is far too low energy to possibly cause cancer, at the very worst it can cause minor heating of tissue (which you'd never notice and would easily handle) and even then all of the developed world mandates a maximum amount of absorbed energy from a transmitter in a phone before it can be sold in their country so this ain't an issue. Especially since it has never been shown to have any noteworthy negative side-effects.
