The Environment and Cancer Research Foundation (ECRF) in Sweden has reported a case study of a woman who developed debilitating symptoms after a 5G base station was installed near her apartment. This was the third such case documented by the researchers. Symptoms included headache, cognitive dysfunction, extreme fatigue, anxiety, and disorders of urinary function and the skin.
The woman reported that her symptoms quickly resolved when she relocated to another apartment not near a 5G base station, only to return within 24 hours of returning to her own apartment. The woman’s dog also showed signs of ill health after the 5G installation. Reportedly, the dog contracted diarrhea soon after the 5G antenna was installed, which disappeared during the retreat to the other apartment with no 5G but returned when they moved back to her own apartment.
Despite the exposure being well below guidelines recommended by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), the researchers say there are significant problems with how health effects from RF radiation are weighed.
