“Sensitivity to electromagnetic radiation is the emerging health problem of the 21st century. It is imperative that health professionals, governments, schools and parents learn more about it. The risks to human health are significant“.
Martin Blank, PhD

“The body’s cells react to electromagnetic fields as potentially harmful, as they do to other environmental toxins, including heavy metals and toxic chemicals. The DNA of living cells recognises electromagnetic fields at very low levels of exposure; and produces a biochemical stress response. Scientific evidence tells us that our safety standards are inadequate and that we must protect ourselves from EMF exposure. This exposure is from power lines, mobile phones and the like, or risk the known consequences. The science is very sound and we should sit up and take notice.
Olle Johansson, Ph. D.
Associate Professor, Unit of Experimental Dermatology, Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden; Author of the Immune System section of the BioInitiative Report
“It is clear that several biological alterations, including modulation of the immune system, are present in electrohypersensitive individuals. The widespread indifference, indifference and lack of sincere respect for the plight of these people must stop. It is clear that something serious has happened and is happening. All aspects of electrohypersensitive people’s lives are at stake, including the ability to work productively in society, have healthy relationships and find safe and permanent housing.
The basic elements of life are increasingly inaccessible to a growing percentage of the world’s population. I strongly encourage all governments to take the issue of electromagnetic health hazards seriously and to act while there is still time. There is too great a risk that the ever-increasing RF-based communications technologies pose a real danger to humans, especially because of their exponential, continuous and uncontrolled growth. Governments must act decisively to protect public health. This action would be by changing exposure standards to be biologically based, communicating the results of independent science on this issue and aggressively investigating the links to a multitude of associated medical conditions.

Electromagnetic fields are massless packets of energy, and visible light is what we know best. X-rays are also electromagnetic fields, but they are more energetic than visible light. Our concern is with those electromagnetic fields that are less energetic than visible light, including those associated with electricity and those used for communications and in microwave ovens. Fields associated with electricity are commonly referred to as “extremely low frequency” (ELF) fields. While those used in communications and microwave ovens are called “radio frequency” (RF) fields. Studies in people have shown that both ELF and RF exposure increase the risk of cancer. This occurs at intensities too low to cause tissue heating.
Unfortunately, all of our exposure standards are based on the false assumption that there are no hazardous effects at intensities that do not cause tissue heating. Based on existing science, many public health experts believe that we may face an epidemic of cancers in the future. This epidemic would be a result of uncontrolled mobile phone use and increased exposure of the population to WiFi and other wireless devices. Therefore, it is important that all of us, and especially children, restrict the use of mobile phones, limit exposure to background levels of Wi-Fi. In addition, government and industry need to find ways to allow the use of wireless devices without such a high risk of serious illness. We need to educate decision-makers that “business as usual” is unacceptable. “The importance of this public health issue cannot be underestimated”.

“Radiofrequency radiation and other forms of electromagnetic pollution are harmful in orders of magnitude well below existing guidelines. Science is one of the tools society uses to decide health policy. In the case of telecommunications equipment, such as mobile phones, wireless networks, mobile phone antennas, PDAs and portable phones, science is being ignored. The current guidelines need to be urgently re-examined by the government and scaled down to reflect the state of science. An emerging public health crisis is looming and time is of the essence.

“Electromagnetic radiation is a very serious human health and environmental problem that needs immediate Congressional attention. The BioInitiative Report is an important milestone in understanding the health risks of wireless technology. Every responsible elected official owes it to their constituents to learn and act on its findings and policy recommendations.”
B. Blake Levitt

Man-made environmental electromagnetic fields (EMFs), across a range of frequencies, are a serious environmental problem. Yet most environmentalists know little about it, perhaps because the subject has been the province of physicists and engineers for so long. Biologists have lost touch with the fundamental inclusion of electromagnetism in the biological paradigm. All living cells, and indeed all living things, regardless of genus or species, are coherent dynamic electrical systems totally dependent on bioelectricity for the most basic metabolic processes of life. It turns out that most living things are fantastically sensitive to small EMF exposures. Living cells interpret such exposures as part of our normal cellular activities (think heartbeat, brain waves, cell division itself, etc.).
The problem is, man-made electromagnetic exposures are not “normal”. They are artificial artefacts, with unusual intensities, signalling characteristics, pulse patterns and waveforms, which do not exist in nature. And they can misdirect cells in many ways. All aspects of the ecosystem can be affected, including all living species of animals, humans, plants and even micro-organisms in water and soil. We are already seeing problems in sentinel species such as birds, bats and bees. Wildlife is known to leave areas when mobile phone towers are placed.
Radio Frequency Radiation (RF), the part of the electromagnetic spectrum used today in everything wireless, is a known immune system suppressor, among other things. RF is a form of energy pollution of the air and should be understood as such. Humans are not the only species affected. The health of our planet may be endangered by this new environmental concern, on top of all the others. Citizens must call on the government to fund proper research and take the industry’s influence out of the dialogue. We ignore this at our own risk.

“There is no doubt that electromagnetic fields have a major effect on neurological functioning. They slow down our brain waves and affect our long-term mental clarity. We should minimise exposures as much as possible to optimise neurotransmitter levels and prevent health deterioration.“
Abraham R. Liboff, PhD

“The key point about electromagnetic pollution that the public needs to realise is that the intensity need not be great for a biological interaction to occur. There is now considerable evidence that extremely weak signals can have physiological consequences. These interactive intensities are approximately 1000 times smaller than the threshold values previously estimated by otherwise well-informed theorists. Those who, in their vainglorious approach to science, rejected all evidence to the contrary as inconsistent with their grand calculations. These flawed threshold estimates have yet to be corrected, both by regulators and the media.”
The general problem with environmental electromagnetism is much deeper, not only concerning power line frequencies, but also in the radio frequency range covered by mobile phones. Here, the public’s continued exposure to electromagnetic radiation is largely related to money. Indeed, the tens of billions of dollars in sales found in the mobile phone industry make it mandatory for corporate leaders to instinctively deny any hint of danger.
There may be hope for the future, knowing that weakly intense electromagnetic interactions can be used for both good and ill. The fact that such fields are biologically effective also implies the likelihood of medical applications, something that is happening now. As this happens, I believe it will make us more aware of how our bodies react to electromagnetism. What should be even clearer to all concerned is that there is reason to be very, very careful about environmental electromagnetic fields.

Professor at Orebro University Hospital, Sweden. World-renowned expert on mobile phones, cordless phones, brain tumours and the safety of wireless radiofrequency and microwave radiation. He is co-author of the section of the BioInitiative Report on brain tumours by Dr. Hardell
“The evidence for the risks of prolonged use of mobile phones and cordless phones is quite strong when you look at people who have used these devices for 10 years or more, and when they are used primarily on one side of the head. Recent studies that report an increased risk of brain tumours and acoustic neuromas have not looked at regular users, use for 10 years or more, and do not look at the part of the brain that would reasonably be exposed to produce a tumour.”

(www.icems.eu)
“Standards for human exposure to radiofrequency radiation for personal wireless communications devices, and for environmental exposure to wireless transmitters, are set by national governments to guide the use of wireless communications devices and for wireless transmitters. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Communications Commission are responsible for setting these standards. The Wireless Technology Impacts Council considers these exposure standards to be inadequate. They are based on the effects of warming and are not adapted to the low-level cumulative exposure conditions in which the public now lives. These standards are also designed for short-term acute exposure conditions. And they do not recognise the medical evidence that points to increased risks and real harms resulting from chronic, intermittent exposure. Federal and state public health agencies are not officially addressing what many concerned scientists and physicians now see as an emerging public health problem. There are no health surveillance or corrective response systems in place to advise citizens about exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR). As wireless technology evolves, background environmental levels increase, creating electrical pollution conditions that become pervasive and more invasive. We strongly encourage consumers, manufacturers, utility providers and legislators to reduce, eliminate and mitigate EMR exposure conditions and to support bio-based standards.”

“According to the BioInitiative Report: A Case for a Biologically Based Public Exposure Standard for Electromagnetic Fields. From electrical and electronic appliances, power lines, and wireless devices such as mobile phones, cordless phones, mobile antennas, transmission and broadcast towers, we live in an invisible fog. We live in an invisible fog of electromagnetic fields that thirty years of science, including more than 2,000 peer-reviewed studies, show exposes us to serious health risks, such as increased cases of Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer, Lou Gehrig’s disease, immune system hypersensitivity to electromagnetic fields, and altered brain function and DNA. The public must make politicians and public officials aware of the need to update the decades-old EMF public health standards. This report tells us how.”

The United States spends more than $2 trillion annually on health care, about 78% of which comes from people with chronic diseases. Without adequately exploring and understanding what factors, including EMF/RF, contribute to the imbalances taking place in people’s bodies in the first place. After reading the BioInitiative Report, it should come as no surprise to policy makers, given the increasing levels of EMF/RF exposure in our environment, that nearly 50% of Americans are now living with a chronic disease. I weep for the people who suffer needlessly from these diseases AND I am hopeful that our government leaders will be more aware of the role that electromagnetic factors play in disease. In addition to the costs of medical care and the erosion of quality of life as well as productivity in the United States.

“All indications are that mobile phones cause brain tumours, salivary gland tumours and eye cancer. However, because the mobile phone industry provides a substantial portion of research funding, this reality is hidden from the general public. The Interphone study, a 13-country research project substantially funded by the mobile phone industry, has consistently shown that the use of a mobile phone protects the user from the risk of brain tumour. Need I say more? It is time for fully independent studies to be funded by those government agencies whose charter is based on protecting their citizens. So that the truth about the health hazards of highly harmful microwave radiation becomes clear and well known.”

“The current radio frequency radiation safety policy in the United States does not protect the public. There are currently more than 260 million wireless subscribers in the United States. This is a demand that drives the continued construction of antenna sites, in residential and commercial neighbourhoods, including near schools, day care and senior centres, and in the workplace. The January 2008 report issued by the National Academy of Sciences committee tasked with examining the needs and gaps in research on the biological effects of exposure to these antennas. This report notes that research studies to date do not adequately represent the reality of exposure. Specifically, the studies:
1) They assume a single antenna, rather than typical arrangements of a minimum of four to six antennas per site, thus underestimating exposure intensities.
2) They do not belong to the commonly used multi-element base station antennas, so multiple frequency exposures are not taken into account.
3) They lack multi-height models for men, women and children of various ages for use in characterising Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) distributions for mobile phone, wireless computer and base station exposures and….
4) It does not take into account the absorption effects of exposures from the various RF emitting devices to which the public is often exposed simultaneously.
At this time, a federal research strategy is urgently needed to address these serious deficiencies in the science on which our government bases health policy.

The Venice Resolution, initiated by the International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety (ICEMS) on 6 June 2008, and currently signed by nearly 50 peer-reviewed scientists worldwide, states in part: “We are compelled to confirm the existence of non-thermal effects of electromagnetic fields on living matter, which appear to occur at all levels of research, from molecular to epidemiological. Recent epidemiological evidence is stronger than before. We recognise the growing public health problem known as electrohypersensitivity. We strongly recommend limited use of mobile phones and similar devices by young children and adolescents. And we call on governments to apply the Precautionary Principle as an interim measure, pending the development of more biologically relevant exposure standards”.
Professor Jacqueline McGlade
Executive Director, Advisor to the European Environment Agency for European Union countries under the European Commission
“There are many examples of non-compliance with the Precautionary Principle in the past. These have led to serious and very often irreversible damage to both health and the environment. Appropriate, preventive and proportionate actions taken today, to avoid plausible and potentially serious threats to health from electromagnetic fields, are likely to be considered as prudent and wise from future perspectives“.

Claims that mobile phones pose no health hazards are supported solely by Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) limits, safety standards that have been written by the telecommunications industries decades ago based on studies they themselves funded. They have made the erroneous assumption that the only harm that could come from RF emissions from mobile phones would be thermal or heating action, since such non-thermal fields cannot have biological effects. The late Dr. Ross Adey refuted this three decades ago by demonstrating that very similar RF fields, with certain carrier and modulation frequencies that had insufficient energy to produce any heating, could cause the release of calcium ions from cells. Since then, numerous research reports have confirmed that non-thermal fields from mobile phones, tower transmitters, power lines and other man-made sources can significantly affect various tissues and physiological functions.
We are constantly bathed in an ever-increasing sea of radiation from exposure to all of the above. In addition to household appliances, computers, Bluetooth devices, wifi installations and over 2,000 communications satellites in outer space, we are being beamed with signals to GPS receivers. New WiMax transmitters on mobile phone towers, which have a range of up to two square miles, compared to 300 feet for wifi, will soon turn core North America into one big electromagnetic hotspot. Children are more affected because their brains are still developing and their skulls are thinner.
A two-minute phone call can disrupt a child’s brain function for an hour. This is why some countries ban their sale or advise against their use by children under 18. Conversely, this is the segment of the population that is currently the target of a $2 billion US advertising campaign. And it sees “tweens” (children between the ages of 8 and 12) as the next big market for mobile phones. Firefly and Barbie mobile phones for 6-8 year olds are also being promoted.
In general, there is no apparent cumulative effect, and talking on a mobile phone for just one hour a day for ten years can add up to 10,000 watts of radiation. That’s ten times more than sticking your head in a microwave oven. Pregnant women may also be at greater risk. According to one study, children born to mothers who used a mobile phone only two or three times a day during pregnancy showed dramatically increased levels of hyperactivity, as well as other emotional and behavioural problems. For the 30% of children who had also used a mobile phone by the age of 7, the incidence of behavioural problems was up to 80% higher! It is debatable whether ontogeny (embryonic development) recapitulates phylogeny, but it is clear that lower life forms are much more sensitive. If you place the positive electrode of a 1.5 volt battery in the Pacific Ocean in San Francisco and the negative electrode in San Diego, sharks in the middle of these cities can detect the few billionths of a volt electric field. Electromagnetic fields have also been implicated in the recent massive but mysterious disappearance of bee colonies, essential for the pollination of more than 90 commercial crops. As Albert Einstein warned, “if the bee were to disappear from the surface of the globe, man would have only four years to live”.
Finally, all life on Earth has evolved under the influence of solar radiation and geomagnetic forces, which we have learned not only to adapt to but also, in some cases, even to use. The health of all living systems (ranging from a cell, tissue, organ or person to a family, organisation or nation) depends on good communication, good communication both within and outside the environment. All communication in the body eventually takes place through very subtle electromagnetic signals between cells. This is being disrupted by artificial electro-pollution to which we have not had time to adapt. As Alvin Toffler emphasised in Future Shock, too much change in too little time means severe stress due to adaptive failure. The adverse effects of electromagnetic pollution may take decades to become apparent, although some, such as carcinogenicity, are already beginning to be visible.
This gigantic experiment on our children and grandchildren could result in massive damage to mind and body. With the potential to produce a disaster of unprecedented proportions, unless adequate precautions are implemented immediately. At the same time, it must be acknowledged that the new electromagnetic therapies have been shown to benefit stress-related disorders ranging from anxiety, depression and insomnia to arthritis, migraines and tension headaches. As demonstrated in Bioelectromagnetic Medicine, they can be much safer and more effective than drugs, so we should avoid being overzealous.

“Very recently, new research has shown that almost all of the human plagues that emerged during the 20th century, such as common acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in children, female breast cancer, malignant melanoma and asthma, can be linked in some way to our use of electricity.

SCIENTISTS AND DOCTORS WARN OF POSSIBLE SERIOUS HEALTH EFFECTS OF 5G NETWORKS
Scientist Appeal for 5G Moratorium
September 13, 2017
We, the undersigned, more than 180 scientists and doctor from 36 countries, recommend a moratorium on deployment of the fifth generation of telecommunications, 5G, until potential hazards to human health and environment have been investigated by independent industry scientists. 5G will dramatically increase the exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) od radio-frequency (RF) regard to the 2G, 3G, 4G, wifi, etc, already existing. The EMF of RF have demonstrated to be harmful to humans and environment.
5G WILL DRAMATICALLY INCREASE THE EXPOSURE TO ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS
5G technology is effective only at short distance. It is poorly transmitted through solid material. Many new antennas will be requiered and large-scale deployment will result in antennas every 10 to 12 houses in urban areas, thus massively increasing the mandatory exposure.
With the ever-increasing use of wireless technologies, no one can avoid exposure. Because it adds an increasing number of 5G transmitters (including within homes, businesses and hospitals) with an estimated 10 to 20 billion connections (fridges, washing machines, security cameras, automobiles and buses) that will be part of the “Internet of things”. All this factors can cause a substantial increase in total long-term exposure to European Union citizens.
Harmful effects of the exposure to EMF of RF are tested
More than 230 scientists from more than 40 countries have expressed their serious concerns regarding the omnipresent and growing exposure to EMF generated by electrical and wireless devices before the launch of 5G. They refer to the fact that numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affect living organisms at levels far below national and international guidelines.
Effects include increased risk of cancer, cellular stress, increased harmful free radicals, genetic damage, structural ans functional changes in the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders and negative impacts on the general well-being of humans. The damages go beyond the human race, as there is increasing evidence of harmful effects to both animals and plants.
After the scientists’ appeal was written in 2015, additional research has convincingly confirmed serious health risks of the EMF of RF of wireless technology. The world’s largest study carried out by National Toxicology Programme (NTP) of the United States (25 million dollars), shows a statistically significant increase in the incidence of brain and heart in animals exposed to EMF below ICNIRP (International Commission of non-ionizing Radiation Protection) criteria, followed by most countries. These results support the results in human epidemiological studies of radiofrequency radiation and brain tumor risk. A large number of peer-reviwed scientific papers demonstrate harm to human health because of EMF.
International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the cancer agency of the World Health Organization (WHO), concluded that EMF of frequencies from 30 Khz to 300 Ghz are possibly carcinogenic to human (Group 2B). However, new studies such as the NTP study previously mentioned and several epidemiologic investigations, including the latest studies on mobile phone use and brain cancer risks, confirm that EMF of RF radiation is carcinogenic for human beings.
The 2016 EUROPAEM Guide on EMF stablishes that exist strong evidence that long-term exposure to certain EMF is a risk factor for diseases such as certain types of cancer, Alzheimer, male infertility… Commom symptoms of electromagnetic hypersensitive (EHS) include headaches, concentration difficulties, sleep problems, depression, lack of energy, fatigue and flu-like symptoms.
A growing proportion of the European population is affected by health problems that for many years have been related to the exposure to EMF and wireless radiation in the scientific literature.
The International Scientific Statement on EHS and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), Brussels 2015, declares that: Based on our current scientifc knowledge, in this way, we insist on all national and international organizations and institutions, in particular the World Health Organization (WHO), to recognize EHS and MCS as true medical conditions, which, acting as sentinel diseases, may create a major public health poblem in the coming years throughout the world, that is to say, in all countries that apply the unlimited use of technologies based on wireless EMF commercialised chemical substances…
Inaction is a cost to society and cannot go on being an option… We unanimously recognize this serious danger to public health that urgently requires the recognition of this condition at all international levels… and, above all, that important primary prevention measures be adopted and priorized to face this global pan-epidemic in perspective.
The Precautionary Principle (UNESCO) was adopted by the European Unions in 2005: “When human activities can lead into a morally unacceptable danger, scientifically possible but uncertain, measures must be taken to avoid or decrease that danger”. Resolution 1815 (Council of Europe, 2011): “Take all reasonable measures to reduce exposure to EMF, especially to radio frequencies emitted by mobile phones, and in particular the exposure in children and youth, for whom the risk of head tumors appears to be higher… The Assembly recommended the application of the ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable), that is, the level as low as reasonably possible, taking into account not only the thermal effects, but aslo the athermal (non-thermal) or biological effects of the emission or radiation of EMF” and “improve the risk evaluation criteria and the quality of the assessment by creating a standard risk scale”. The Nuremberg Medical Code of Ethics (1949) applies to experiments on human beings, thus it includes the deployment of 5G with the new exposure to EMF of RF.
All these experiments must be designed and based “on the results obtained through previous experimentation with animals and the full knowledge of the natural history of the disease or problem under study, so that the anticipated results justify the experiment (…) No experiment should be performed when there is a priori reason to suppose that death or irreparable injury can occur, except, perhaps, in experiments in which medical researchers are also experiment subjects” (Nuremberg Code points 3 and 5). Published scientific studies show that there is “a priori reason to suppose” real health risks. The European Environment Agency (EEA) is warning about “the risk of radiation from everyday devices”, despite radiation bein below WHO/ ICNIRP standards. The EEA also concludes: “There are numerous examples in the past that, because of not using the precautionary principle, led to serious, and often irreversible, damage to health and environment… Harmful exposures could be spread before there is “categorical” evidence from long-term exposures, as well as a biological underestanding (mechanism) of the harm they can cause”.
“Safety Guidelines” protect industry, not health
The current ICNIRP “safety guidelines” are outdated. All the evidence of damage, mentioned above, arises even if the radiation falls below these ICNIRP “safety guidelines”. Therefore, new safety regulations are necessary. The reason of the deceitful guidelines is that “the conflict of interests of ICNIRP members, due to their relationships with the telecommunications or electricity industries, undermine the impartiality that the regulation of the Public Exposure Standards should govern for non-ionizing radiation… To evaluate cancer risks it is necessary to include scientists with competence in medicine, especially in oncology”.
The current ICNIRP/ WHO guidelines for EMF are based on the outdated hypothesis that “the fundamental effect os exposure to radio-frequency electromagnetic fields of relevance to human health and safety is the heating of exposed tissue”. However, scientists have shown that many different types of illnesses and harmful effects occur without heating (non-thermal effect) at radiation levels well below ICNIRP guidelines.
We urge the European Union:
1) Take all reasonable measures to stop the expansion of the radio-frequency electromagnetic fields of the 5G until independent scientits can ensure that 5G and the total radiation levels caused by RF EMF (5G together with 2G, , 3G, 4G and wifi) will not be harmful to the European Union citizens, especially babies, children and pregnant women, as well as to the environment.
2) Recommend that all EU countries, especially their radiation safety agencies, follow Resolution 1815 and inform citizens, including medical and educational professionals, about the health risks arising from radiation of the RF EMF, how and why to avoid wireless communication, particularly in/ near nurseries, schools, homes, workplaces, hospitals and senior centers.
3) Appoint immediately, without industry influence, a European Union EMF and health working group of independent and truly impartial scientists, without conflicts of interests, to reassess health risks and:
a) Decide on new safe “maximun total exposure standards” for all wireless communications within the EU.
b) Study the total and cumulative exposure that affects EU citizenship.
c) Create standards that are required and applied in the EU on how to avoid a exposure that exceeds the new EU “maximum total exposure standards” related to all kind of EMF to protect citizenship, especially babies, children and pregnant women.
4) Prevent the wireless and telecommunications industry, through their lobbying organizations, from persuading European officials to make decisions about
5) Favour and implement wired digital telecommunications instead of wireless.
We expect a response from you, at the latest on 31 October 2017, to the first two signatories on what measures they will take to protect EU inhabitants against RF EMF and especially 5G radiation. This appeal and its response will be available to the public.
