Unethical experiment in Umeå
Debate Articles. (2018-12-07) Do not risk public health in Umeå. There is no research on health effects of 5G. A drug would never be approved without prior testing of the drug in clinical trials. Therefore, there is a good reason to call the introduction of 5G in Umeå for a giant, unethical experiment with humans, writes a group of researchers.

Once upon a time, canary birds were used in mines to detect whether there were poisonous gases in the mining areas. Canary birds were used this way until the mid-1950s before they were replaced by modern technology. Now the introduction of the new generation mobile radiation, 5G, is planned in Umeå.
The first university hospital and the university with 5G in Europe will be introduced without the risks to man and the environment of technology being investigated. Over 180 scientists and doctors from 36 countries require 5G to be stopped.
On September 13, 2017, they sent a joint appeal to the EU Commission, inviting the EU to wait for the expansion of 5G until the risks to health and the environment are investigated. The researchers warn of the letter of serious health risks, including neurological effects, infertility and cancer due to. the greatly increasing microwave radiation that 5G entails (www.5gappeal.eu). 5G is being developed before ensuring that there are harmful consequences for human health or the environment. There is no research on health effects of 5G. A drug would never be approved without prior testing of the drug in clinical trials. There is therefore a good reason to call the introduction of 5G in Umeå for a giant, unethical experiment with people that contravenes the Nuremberg Convention.
No one has asked if patients, hospital staff, students and teachers are willing to participate. Pregnant women, fetuses, toddlers, schoolchildren, sick patients and the aged … all become subjects without their consent and without information about the health risks from existing radiation already known which hundreds of researchers have been warned about for several years. In the 5G appeal, health hazards of wireless technologies (2G, 3G, 4G, Wifi etc.) are shown in the form of “… increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase of harmful free radicals, genetic damage, structural and functional changes in the reproductive system, learning and memory problems, neurological disorders and negative effects on public well-being. The damage extends far beyond humans, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects for both plants and animals. ”
Extensive research has also shown that microwave radiation from wireless technology can cause sleep disorders, abnormal fatigue, numbness, anxiety, concentration problems and more. However, most people who suffer from this are diagnosed with “mental ill health” by their doctor. The economic and technical benefits of 5G must be weighed against the health risks that may exist. Until this is done, 5G should be stopped.
Do not risk the health of the population in Umeå!
