The Resolution represents a viewpoint of the professional scienti?c community and is meant for public dissemination, for the consumers of the mobile telecommunications services, as well as for the legislative and executive authorities who develop and implement health protection, environmental, communication, scienti?c and safety policies.
PDF Radiofrequency/Microwave Radiation and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), Don Maisch, PhD 2011
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), was established in 1965 as an agency of the World Health Organization (WHO) with a mission to develop strategies for cancer prevention and control. One of its prime roles is to evaluate and classify the carcinogenicity of chemicals and other substances (including electromagnetic radiation) through published monographs that will then be used by international and national health and regulatory agencies to protect public health. In order to block undue commercial influence in its assessment process the IARC has stipulated that in order to participate in its working groups, members must have no real or apparent conflicts of interests – meaning that they cannot be working for the affected industry. This does not eliminate the potential for commercial influence, however, as industry representatives, with an obvious bias to protect their commercial sector, can still be directly involved in IARC meetings. This is exampled by the May 24-31, 2011 IARC meeting that will be discussing the carcinogenicity of radio-frequency and microwave radiation. Other examples of the problems created by allowing industry involvement in WHO advisory groups, namely the Chernobyl Forum and the Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Task Group (2005) are examined with a warning on forgetting the hard lessons learned by the WHO from its past experience with the tobacco industry.
PDF Autoimmune Process after Long-Term Low-Level Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields, Y.G. Grigoriev, O.A. Grigoriev, A.A.Ivanov, A.M. Lyaginskaya, A.V. Merkulov, V.S. Stepanov, N.B. Shagina
Mobile Communications and Changes in Electromagnetic Conditions for the Population. Abstract—Mobile communications provides a new source of electromagnetic exposure for almost the whole population of Russia. For the first time in the history of civilization, the brain of mobile phone users is exposed to localized radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields (EMF). Base stations are a factor in the exposure of the population. Existing standards for limiting exposure do not account for the role of base sta-tions as a source of EMF and cannot guarantee the absence of adverse health effects. It has become necessary to obtain reliable information to expand databases for the development of new standards. As recommended by the World Health Organization, an additional experiment is performed under the supervision of foreign experts, which shows changes in autoimmune status in rats after long-term low-level RF EMF exposure with an incident power of 500 µW/cm2.
PDF WORLD HEALTH Urgently Needs Lower EMF Standards, International Scientists Say Olle Johansson, PhD, Karolinska Institute, Chair, Adamantia Fragopoulou, Yuri Grigoriev, Lukas Margaritas, Lloyd Morgan, Elihu Richter, and Cindy Sage, 2011
The International Electromagnetic Fields Alliance (IEMFA) today announces a new published report and scientific Consensus Statement concerning health hazards of electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Led by Olle Johansson, PhD of the Karolinska Institute, the report published by a consortium of international scientists urges global governments to adopt significantly lower human exposure standards for electromagnetic fields. The recommendations are based on the latest body of evidence in biological sciences, and the public-health implications of the unprecedented global exposures to electromagnetic fields from telecommunications and electric power technologies. The scientists recommend specific exposure limits for different frequency fields, including microwaves, used in wireless communications, and ELF electric fields and magnetic fields 2011

PDF Non-thermal effects and mechanisms of interaction between electromagnetic fields and living matter, Rome, Italy, Livio Giuliani November 2010
Protection against Non Ionizing Radiation is based on a paradigmatic assumption: “We know very well the interaction between electromagnetic fields and living organ-isms: it is a thermal interaction; thus the standards internationally accepted are adequate to protect people and workers”. This is a fairy tale. Since the 1970s the non thermal effects of electromagnetic fields on living organisms have been well known and also the non thermal mechanisms have been investigated. Nevertheless, until today, we have been condemned to listen to representatives from international institutions repeating the old refrain above. Furthermore when scientists participating in the ICEMS agreed to edit a monograph – the present one – with the aim of illustrating the non thermal mechanisms and effects due to the electromagnetic interaction with living organisms.

These fast emerging long-term effects form a wide threat for public health.

“Low dose exposure to chemicals and electromagnetic radiation from increasingly advanced electronic equipment is apparently one of the work environment risks in offices in the twenty-first century. How great the health risks are is not yet known. Researchers who want to find out are kept back by constant lack of funding. In this situation, the role of unions is important, partly with respect to demanding more adequate research in this field, partly to assert at least the principle of prudent avoidance – if they don’t dare to demand a zero-risk goal.” by Don Maisch PhD and Prof. Olle Johansson 2010

PDF “Research electromagnetic fields should find new paths forward”
Long-term exposure, but … … no knowledge, no safety standards Citizens and ecosystems are nowadays increasingly exposed to long-term growth in low- and high-frequency electromagnetic fields from an ever wider range of electrical equipment, power lines and wireless applications. The knowledge about possible health consequences of longterm effects of such fields is not available, or available only in a very limited way. This also applies to the cumulative effect of these influences. In line with this, the current standards primarily focus on the prevention of acute health effects occurring on exposure to individual fields. As a consequence, in the current situation, human beings and the natural world are not protected against possible long term health effects from a cocktail of different electromagnetic fields 2009

PDF Cell phones and brain tumors: a review including the long-term epidemiologic data
Results: The results indicate that using a cell phone for ?10 years approximately doubles the risk of being diagnosed with a brain tumor on the same (“ipsilateral”) side of the head as that preferred for cell phone use. The data achieve statistical significance for glioma and acoustic neuroma but notfor meningioma.
Conclusion: The authors conclude that there is adequate epidemiologic evidence to suggest a link between prolonged cell phone usage and the development of an ipsilateral brain tumor.

PDF The Controversy about a Possible Relationship between Mobile Phone Use and Cancer
Methodologic considerations revealed that three important conditions for epidemiologic studies to detect an increased risk are not met:
a) no evidence-based exposure metric is available;
b) the observed duration of mobile phone use is generally still too low; c) no evidence-based selection of end points among the grossly different types of neoplasias is possible because of lack of etiologic hypotheses. Concerning risk estimates, selection bias, misclassification bias, and effects of the disease on mobile phone use could have reduced estimates, and recall bias may have led to spuriously increased risks. The overall evidence speaks in favor of an increased risk, but its magnitude cannot be assessed at present because of insufficient information on long-term use.
