The French health and environmental agency, ANSES, published on Tuesday, April 20 an opinion and a draft report on aspects of possible health risks of exposure to 5G. This report has been put for a period of six weeks in public consultation to allow scientists, health professionals, experts and organizations to give their opinion, comments and proposals on the report.
You have until Tuesday, June 1, 2021 to participate.
To allow international participation on this global public health issue, we have asked ANSES to translate the opinion into English. According to their answer, it should be available soon. And on our side, we have just set up an English working report with the professional translation tool Deepl. It can be downloaded hereAP2019SA0006_Rapport_5G_consultation - english
