5G TRAILS

What do experts say on health hazard concerns
Siddharth Rai

The trial runs of the fifth-generation of wireless networks for mobile broadband, commonly known as 5G, have started in India, promising benefits of ultra-fast connectivity and low latency. However, 5G and its rollout have sparked a debate in India over the fears on health concerns. There are even some conspiracy theories that have tried to link it up with the coronavirus among other things.

The debate picked up after actor Juhi Chawla filed a petition in the Delhi High Court against technology up-gradation in India. Juhi Chawla filed a lawsuit against the 5G rollout stating that the radiation emitted will be extremely harmful and injurious to the health and safety of the people. The actor said that she is not against the implementation of technological advancements, but radiation emitted while using wireless devices is one of the most prominent health concerns among the users. Her statement further adds that there is sufficient reason to believe that the radiation is extremely harmful and injurious to the health and safety of the people.

The Debate

A private television channel recently conducted a debate over the impact of 5G and the health hazard concerns associated with it. The panel of experts discussed various aspects of the 5G trials in India.

What is My Stereo's Gender?

Readers will recall, distressingly, that I have tried their patience on just about every topic that marginally relates to audio.

As soon as he was out of the woods, he grabbed a 5-gallon bucket and started picking up trash. He’s now notched more than 650 near-consecutive days of service, picked up thousands of pounds of garbage, and earlier this year, finally declared Eaton clean (for the moment). His work garnered widespread praise, including a shout-out from youth climate activist Greta Thunberg. But McGregor is just getting started.
