The claims and conspiracy theories surrounding the launch of 5G networks have been shocking. In the most extreme cases, people linking the technology with the coronavirus pandemic have torched mobile phone masts and assaulted engineers.
In an attempt to get to the bottom of it, VICE speaks to Dr David Robert Grimes, a cancer researcher and physicist at the University of Oxford, to find out if there are any grounds for these claims and to hear his explanation of the symptoms some people are attributing to the rollout of 5G.
We also meet people protesting against the implementation of the new generation of cellular networks to hear the ways that they claim it is negatively impacting their lives.
