190 Scientists from 39 Nations Appeal to U.N. to Protect Humans and Wildlife from Electromagnetic Fields and Wireless Technology
Exposure standards to radiofrequencies (used in wireless technology – including mobile phones, cordless phones, tablets, wireless baby monitors and so forth) are based on the outdated and ludicrous notion that it needs to heat tissue before it is considered a danger.
There are many more effects on health than merely heating the tissues.
These scientists have published over 2000 peer-reviewed research papers on the biological or health effects of non-ionizing radiation (this is the level of radiation on the electromagnetic spectrum that includes our household wiring [ELF extra low frequency] and wireless technology [RF – radiofrequencies]).
This is too much evidence for the authorities to ignore.
“Radiowave sickness” has been recognised for decades and Dave Stetzer points out that “chronic fatigue… fibromyalgia or ADD/ADHD [if] you look at the symptoms of radiowave sickness; they overlap.”♦
In a recent interview with Michael Bevington ♦ (from ES-UK) he said that, “by the 1960s, in Russia and in Poland – who also did a large amount of research – they’d established what it was. They broke it down to three different categories and they looked particularly at the cardiovascular effects from the heart, but also on the central nervous system, and also on the brain, and the effects that it had on cognition, memory loss, [and] that type of thing.”
“Screen dermatitis” was studied in the 1970s by Prof Olle Johansson. ♦
In the last few years, Prof Emeritus Martin Pall has made the link between EMF exposure and the effect it has on cells, causing calcium to flood into them, and resulting in apoptosis (programmed cell death). ♦
In his talk (below) Dr Martin Blank says the following:
Before Edison’s lightbulb, there was very little electromagnetic radiation in our environment. The levels today are very many times higher than natural background levels and are growing rapidly because of all the new devices that emit this radiation.
An example that a lot of us have in our pockets right now is the cell phone. One study shows that as cell phone usage has spread widely, the incidence of fatal brain cancer in younger people has more than tripled. We are putting cellular antennas on residential buildings, and on top of hospitals, where people are trying to get well. Wireless utility meters, and cell towers, are blanketing our neighborhoods with radiation.
It’s particularly frightening that radiation from our telecommunication and powerline technology is damaging the DNA in our cells. It is clear to many biologists that this can account for the rising cancer rates.
Future generations – OUR CHILDREN – ARE AT RISK.
These biologists and scientists are not being heard on the committees that set safety standards. The BIOLOGICAL facts are being ignored, and as a result, the safety limits are much too high. THEY ARE NOT PROTECTIVE!

I spoke with Prof Olle Johansson, from Sweden’s Karolinska Institute for the 2015 Environmental Sensitivities Symposium about this very topic. Here’s what he had to say:
We are taking a big chance for the future…
Not to be forgotten, of course, both power frequent magnetic fields as well as radio frequent fields are cancer classified by the World Health Organisation as possible carcinogens.
They shouldn’t do that if they were sure it was safe, because they do have a class four… If they were really sure, they would have put it there, but they didn’t. They put it in the Category 2B instead.
Right now there is huge debate all over that people want to move it further up to 2A or even 1 for the category for proven carcinogenic compounds and exposures….
[Exposure standards] should go down to the real safe levels, then we need to lower them one million, million, million times. That’s a one with 18 zeroes behind it, then we are down to natural background levels. ♦
What to do?
1) View the petition here – as well as the signatories.
2) Write to members of Parliament – let them know.
3) Reduce your own exposure – read here for tips.
4) Spread the word – get your Why Fry in Wi-Fi? T-shirt or Hoodie here.
5) Spread the word – share this post (url: http://ecohealthsolutions.com.au/blog/emf-scientists/)
6) Write to manufacturers of phones, routers, and more – to let them know you want wired options.
