The new global wireless standard 5G is the 5th generation mobile network. World Health Organization (WHO) says this latest technology used in mobile phone networks does not have any adverse health effects. The radio signals produced by 5G are fundamentally the same as 4G and 3G networks.
Despite this, several products such as sleeping masks, bracelet bands, and necklaces are being sold to people to protect themselves from 5G radio signals.
But as per the Dutch Authority for Nuclear Safety and Radiation Protection (ANVS), these people might be harming their health.
The authority has urged people not to use these products
It issued a warning about 10 consumer products that they found continuously emitting ionizing radiation. Authority warned that these products could cause harm with long-term wear. It also includes the Magnetix wellness branded Smiley Kids bracelet with negative ions. The other products identified were an “Energy Armor” sleeping mask, Quantum Pendant, and others, and necklace.
The sale of these products is banned now
Though the level of radiation emitted by these products is low, continuous exposure over time could prove harmful to human health. The ANVS has now published a list of the products identified as radioactive and has prohibited the sale of these products in the Netherlands.
