National Yunlin University of Science and Technology conducted a study of electromagnetic emissions by 4G and 5G base stations.
The study involved 34 sites in the north, south and east of Taiwan, as well as the outlying islands, that had 4G and 5G installations, said Kuo Wen-chung (郭文中), a professor of computer science and information engineering at the university.
“The sites were chosen because they accommodate devices and antennas installed by a majority of telecoms, and the results we obtained from the sites would best represent all base stations,”
“We found that the highest NIEA value detected was only about 0.039 percent of the reference values stipulated by the ICNIRP and the EPA, which are close to those of European countries and the US. The average of the highest values detected was 0.0125 percent of the reference values,” Kuo said.
Researchers measured non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation (NIEA) based on the rules stipulated by the EPA.
The results show that a base station is even safer than a microwave oven and an electric razor.
