EM radiation is a real concern for people.

Just because you don't immediately feel sick from something doesn't mean it isn't doing you harm. Think lead in the water, thalidamide, smoking, and all kinds of things we thought were safe until observed effects made people decide otherwise.

Initially the tiny amount of microwave radiation (in comparison to the cooking device) that comes from phones to me sounded like it couldn't do any harm. The frequencies are far lower than the harmful x-ray and gamma radiation. But I had to have a second look when people actually had to give up killer-cash paying jobs in order to be away from this wifi. It often seems to be someone who has been exposed to large doses in the past who who get sensitive to the radiation later. They even get sensitive to electricity that run in the wires!

Instead of something that doesn't kill you making you stronger, it seems that when its intense enough, it makes you weaker.

Check out wearetheevidence.org. And if you think these people gave up their jobs in order to get free money with some kind of insurrance fraud, then I guess you have never had the opportunity to live without a job and be paid. It's not nice. Living without paid work makes one feel worthless. Imagine giving up cryptocurrencies, internet, and a near six-figure salary and live like you're in the 19th century. I really want this to be a hoax but this feeling doesn't convince me.

I use a headset while speaking on cellular phone. I expose myself to Wifi all of the time and I live in cell coverage. Maybe I should get rid of my cellphone.

I think the warning could also refer to some harmful chemicals used, but unfortunately the warning is almost useless because it does not state the chemicals and risk.

EM radiation is not per se harmful for people. It depends on the power, frequency, distance to the source/antenna and energy / time exposure. Normal cell phone and wifi em should be completely harmless for people.

Sabine Hossenfelder: All you need to know to understand 5G

I agree it should be completely harmless for people but for me evidence trumps reasoning here. Anything with lower frequency than light in reasoning should be safe.
The 5G is indeed a lower frequency than visible light. It uses too little power to heat you up, so it shouldn't cause any harm. It seems to me that light would be the best option for saftey as that's part of the natural environment but even visible light can harm us.

It comes down to how do you know what is true. The ancient Greeks thought we should be able to just reason out the physics without experiments: Apriori. The introduction of experiments and the development of the scientific method, involves testing things. Experiment and repeated experiments. Here we have users who are sick from it. It's being rolled out without any studies done previously. Why the rush?
