‘Unscientific’ anti-5G poster banned by ASA


The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has banned a poster that made alarmist statements that 5G networks pose a threat to public health, ruling the claims could not be supported by scientific evidence.

5G rollouts have been greeted by resistance in some communities who fear the health implications caused by more powerful, denser networks. However these fears are not supported by academic studies and there have been instances of disinformation and fake news.
