There is no evidence that 5G networks are harmful to health.
The World Health Organization says 5G mobile networks are safe, and not fundamentally different from existing 3G and 4G signals.
Mobile networks use non-ionising radio waves that do not damage DNA.
Despite this, there have been attacks on transmitters by people who believe they are harmful.
The products identified included an “Energy Armor” sleeping mask, bracelet and necklace.
A bracelet for children, branded Magnetix Wellness, was also found to be emitting radiation.
