Australia's 5G Future Debunking 5G Fears
5G is coming, and we should be excited, not afraid. A recent article, by renowned scientist and triple-j presenter Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, discusses the scientific research indicating that 5G is safe for humans.
In the article Dr Karl illustrates that, due to its position on the electromagnetic spectrum, it is non-ionising and therefore not a threat to human health. He also explains how 5G is in-fact an amazing innovation that has the potential to improve the quality of life of many Australians.
