Prof. Butler Review of the Health Risks of 5G & Policy Implications

Professor Tom Butler published another review on the science on RF radiation health effects this review is focusedd on 5G: “Review of the Health Risks of Radiofrequency Radiation Employed in 5G Technology and the Implications for UK Policy-making.” 

Prof. Butker writes that the aim of this review is to provide a critical review of the findings on the health risks posed by 5G technologies. It also provides evidence that the processes by which policy decisions
have been made concerning the protection of public health may be significantly flawed, as the “overwhelming
body of scientific evidence appears to have been ignored by relevant government departments and agencies in
arriving at decisions about the introduction of 5G”. His conclusion is that the UK government  “failed in its duty to identify, assess, and mitigate the risks posed by RFR-based technologies” and in its duty to protect public health. 

Another article was recently published by Prof. Butler – a meta-analysis scientific review “On the Clear Evidence of the Risks to Children from Smartphone and WiFi Radio Frequency Radiation“. 

Recently, as a result of Prof. Butler complaint against New-York Times, the Irish Press ombudsman rebuked the Times for its false and misleading reports on 5G safety in violation of Ireland’s Truth and Accuracy in Journalism Standards. Children’s Health Defense submitted a case against the FCC for its failure to regulate guidelines that are protective of public health and especially children – Among the petitioners are parents of children who have been injured by cell phones, wi-fi in schools and cell towers.
