Understanding the origins of radio in telecommunications
Radio refers to the entire network of masts that can pick up and transmit a signal, allowing users to make phone calls, surf the web and exchange files from your smartphone. This is also what we refer to as mobile networks.
These masts mainly form the radio network and transmit 3G, 4G and soon 5G communications.
Radio: technology that can spark controversy
The controversy surrounding mobile telephony is certainly one of the most important issues when people are asked about technological risks or the degree of trust placed in public authorities, experts and health authorities.
However, despite more than a decade of scientific publications and reports on radio frequencies and more than half a century of electromagnetic fields, the voices of associations and ordinary citizens are increasingly being heard, denouncing a risk that is feared, or even felt, but which is yet to be determined. Health concerns are frequently foregrounded with untold amounts of scientific data.

Each and every one of us must listen carefully to one another. What’s more it is our role to calmly communicate the facts rather than spreading doubt. With this in mind, we drafted the special report in an endeavour to provide objective and scientific data and spark a fully transparent debate that showcases additional expertise.
