A total of ten products designed to allegedly protect wearers from 5G mobile networks were emitting ionizing radiation.


The Dutch Authority for Nuclear Safety and Radiation Protection (ANVS) has announced that it found radioactive 10 products claiming to protect people from the 5G network.

“Due to the potential health risk they pose, these consumer products containing radioactive materials are therefore prohibited by law. Ionizing radiation can damage tissue and DNA and can cause, for example, a red skin.”

The list of radioactive goods, published on the ANVS’s website, includes sleeping masks, bracelets, and necklaces. A “Magnetix Wellness” bracelet designed for kids was also on the list.

The ANVS said that it sent warnings to local merchants informing them that selling radioactive goods was forbidden and must be halted. It has also urged those who bought radioactive goods to keep them in safe places until they will be returned or confiscated.

Radioactive products are likely to cause considerable harm if worn for a long period and have no positive effects, researchers say.

According to the World Health Organization, the 5G technology is safe and does not differ much from 3G or 4G. It has also refuted claims that 5G damages human DNA.

After the global pandemic outbreak, many people have linked 5G towers with COVID.
