EM Radiation Part II – Health Risks
February 15, 2020, 3PM to 6PM at the Murphy Residence (Casa Amistad)
5G cell phone technology promises blinding speed making gaming and data transmission much faster. But according to some it also comes with potential health risks. We will begin at the beginning and explore how cell phones work and answer question such as what is the difference between non-ionizing and ionizing radiation. How do carrier waves work? Does 5G pose higher risks than already existing 4G and LTE; and how do you know what is true among all the claims about 5G? Complicating things, the World Health Organization has classified all cell phone radiation as a potential carcinogen, but wine and cured meats are also classified as potential carcinogens. What is one to think? Join as we discuss these issues and sort through all of the various claims.
