5G internet offers much faster mobile speeds, lower latency, and a lot more capacity to handle a growing number of wirelessly connected devices. And like all other new technologies, it has been the subject of health fears, although there’s no conclusive evidence that 5G waves (or other wireless communication) cause health problems. It definitely has nothing to do with the spread of the coronavirus, although there are conspiracy theories to the effect.

However, when people fear that their environment is making them sick, their concern may involve real symptoms—even if those symptoms didn’t actually come from the environment. In a brief report on the phenomenon published today, Engadget spoke with Professor Omer Van den Bergh, one of the scientists behind a 2017 paper on the subject. Van den Bergh says that people with “modern health worries” may attribute actual symptoms to “environmental causes,” despite there being no diagnosed medical issue.
