Who Is SAM?
Meet SAM, aka the
Specific Anthropomorphic Mannequin
SAM is a plastic dummy used by the telecommunications industry across the world to test the heating effects of 5G wireless radiation of mobile phones.
Safety testing for 5G phones is performed on a dummy called SAM!
How the test works
The SAM plastic head is filled with a liquid to see if it heats up one degree within a 6-minute call (sometimes 30 minutes). If it doesn’t heat up by 1 degree then it is deemed safe, and given the tick of approval.
1. The dummy is meant to represent us aka the average human, except that there is nothing average about SAM.
2. SAM’s head (which is what is being tested) is based on a 100kg, six-foot tall adult male military recruit. Does that describe you? We didn’t think so.
3. Only 3% of the population fit the stereotype of SAM.
What sort of “safety” oversight only protects 3% of the population?
