    Dariusz Leszczynski: Statement of Finland’s Sitra on the 5G deployment


    Sitra (Finnish: Suomen itsenäisyyden juhlarahasto), the Finnish Innovation Fund, is an independent public foundation which operates directly under the supervision of the Finnish Parliament (Wikipedia link).

    In response to the request from the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Finland, Sitra has prepared a short statement concerning auction of the 26 GHz spectrum in Finland. The link to the Finnish language version of the statement is here https://www.sitra.fi/artikkelit/sitran-lausunto-26-ghz-taajuusalueen-huutokaupasta/. (down below is the Google translation of the statement).

    Sitra”s statement was prepared by non-experts in the health and environmental effects of EMF. Thus, there is no information or discussion as to what opinion on the possible radiation effects on human health and environment is more plausible. However, the statement ends with a very clear message:

    “”If the necessary research data is not available, it must be obtained before making a decision””

    Research data on the health and environmental effects of 5G-emitted millimeter-waves (including 26 GHz band) is extremely limited. Scientific information is absolutely insufficient to make educated and science based decisions concerning human health policy and environment protecting policy.

    The missing scientific data, as Sitra recommends, must be obtained before the decision on the full-blown deployment of the 5G technology is made.
