The title of this paper, “Radiofrequency Radiation and Cancer: A Review,” is misleading because this is not a literature review. Rather, this is an opinion piece written by David Grimes, a science writer and physicist who has served as a paid spokesperson for the telecommunications industry.
Following is a link to an “informational video” he recorded for Vodafone UK:
Vodafone UK News Centre. “5G and health: Everything you need to know.” Video (2:23). April 24, 2020. https://newscentre.vodafone.co.uk/5g/5g-and-health-everything-you-need-to-know/
The Grimes paper rehashes arguments I have heard for more than a decade. It reflects the perspective of some physical scientists and engineers since the 1980’s that only ionizing radiation is harmful due to photon energy. Their position is that radiofrequency radiation (RFR), or non-ionizing radiation, is harmless unless its intensity exceeds a certain heating threshold, and the only plausible mechanism for harm from RFR is acute heating. These scientists employ a common industry strategy to manufacture doubt about the science by dismissing thousands of peer-reviewed RFR studies published since the 1980’s with the claim that these studies are not methodologically sound or have not been replicated.
Grimes implies that anyone concerned about health effects from 5G or RFR is a conspiracy theorist.
It is indeed unfortunate that many people distrust science and believe in conspiracy theories. However, distrust in government and the proliferation of conspiracy theories may be attributable to a history of governmental failure to regulate environmental toxins and protect public and environmental health instead of industry profits …..
