How the Mobile Communication Industry Deals with Science as Illustrated by ICNIRP versus NTP

The development of mobile communication technologies starting with 1G up to now 5G is a success story rarely heard of previously. It has only been possible because industry experts in charge of the technology assumed that radiofrequency (RF) radiation and its modulations – similar to visible light – are biologically harmless. They believed in safety limits that reliably protect people only from the acute thermal effects of RF radiation inherent in the system. Biological effects below the safety limits were categorically ruled out because their existence allegedly contradicted the laws of physics.


The Finnish Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK) says goodbye to a scientist, who valued ethics and morals more highly than his scientific career

The Finnish Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK) closed down Professor Dariusz Leszczynski’s research division in 2012. The obvious reason of this decision is to make clear to the public that mobile phone radiation does not harm human health and that, therefore, the further investigation of its biological effects can be stopped.
