The National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) stands with the Ukrainian people. We continue to monitor the situation in Ukraine with concern for the safety of the population and the nation’s nuclear power stations. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is part of the United Nations and is the international center for cooperation with the Member States worldwide to promote the safe, secure and peaceful use of nuclear technologies. IAEA’s website and twitter feed are excellent sources for updates regarding the status of radiological conditions in Ukraine.

Fact check: No evidence 5G networks have ‘enormous impact’ on immune system
Dr. Bushberg & other experts say that, while more research is needed, there is no evidence 5G has an adverse effect on the immune system.
[Read in USA TODAY: Fact check: Claim about 5G and immune system is unproven (usatoday.com)].
Dr. Bushberg writes article on NCRP for IEEE Newsletter (see page 8).
