The human skin as a sub-THz receiver – Does 5G pose a danger to it or not?

The world is galloping towards a bright new future, or at least so industry would like us to think. The advent of 5 G promises unforetold connectivity and unparalleled integration with the virtual world (Agiwal et al., 2016). Technology will interact with almost every aspect of our daily lives (Boccardi et al., 2014), as well as expose us to rich and varied data streaming on our cellular and Wi-Fi devices. While all of this may be true it comes with a price tag. To afford such heavy data traffic we must accept an expansion in data channels (Ben Ishai et al., 2016), something that is not possible in the currently used frequency channels, and an attendant explosion in base stations (Ge et al., 2016). This is the rational to move to 5 G, a FCC standard, which will start at 28 GHz (FCC Report 16–89), soon utilize frequencies up to 60 GHz and may eventually reach the sub – Terahertz range (FCC 50–50 Report).
