    "The 5G Health Hazard That Isn’t

    How one scientist and his inaccurate chart led to unwarranted fears of wireless technology
    ...

    Like many affluent school districts at the time, Broward was considering laptops and wireless networks for its classrooms and 250,000 students...The district asked Bill P. Curry, a consultant and physicist, to study the matter. The technology, he reported back, was 'likely to be a serious health hazard.' He summarized his most troubling evidence in a large graph labeled “Microwave Absorption in Brain Tissue (Grey Matter).”...

    The chart showed the dose of radiation received by the brain as rising from left to right, with the increasing frequency of the wireless signal. The slope was gentle at first, but when the line reached the wireless frequencies associated with computer networking, it shot straight up, indicating a dangerous level of exposure...

    To no small degree, the blossoming anxiety over the professed health risks of 5G technology can be traced to ...[this] single scientist and a single chart...

    Except that Dr. Curry and his graph got it wrong.

    According to experts on the biological effects of electromagnetic radiation, radio waves become safer at higher frequencies, not more dangerous. (Extremely high-frequency energies, such as X-rays, behave differently and do pose a health risk.)

    In his research, Dr. Curry looked at studies on how radio waves affect tissues isolated in the lab, and misinterpreted the results as applying to cells deep inside the human body. His analysis failed to recognize the protective effect of human skin. At higher radio frequencies, the skin acts as a barrier, shielding the internal organs, including the brain, from exposure...


    Dr. Curry’s flawed reports were amplified by alarmist websites, prompted articles linking cellphones to brain cancer and served as evidence in lawsuits urging the removal of wireless classroom technology. In time, echoes of his reports fed Russian news sites noted for stoking misinformation about 5G technology. What began as a simple graph became a case study in how bad science can take root and flourish..."
