Abstract

The deployment of the fifth generation (5G) networks will escalate the installation of high frequency base stations. In last years, we see a growing concern in masses regarding potential health hazards linked with 5G deployment and radio frequency emitted by these stations. Several communities are actively working on agenda towards stopping the 5G roll out. It becomes fundamentally important to scientifically address these concerns. In this paper, the health risks incorporated with 5G are discussed critically in the light of scientific work and debunk these tittle-tattles where required. We confute scientifically the '5G appeal' which is the biggest group demanding moratorium on the deployment of 5G. Moreover, we discuss effects of 5G on health, its implications on privacy, pandemics, ecosystem and role of world health organization in fighting these narratives. Finally, we provide future direction to negate these false claims linked with 5G.
