    From Eileen O’Connor, Radiation Research Trust:

    Please forward the following message to all your contacts.

    EU MEP”™s Elizabeth Lynne, Kathy Sinnott and Carl Schlyter have tabled a written Declaration no. 47/2009 on the risks of exposure to electromagnetic fields resulting from the use of wireless technology. The Declaration will be open for MEPs to sign on 21.4.2009. Authors of current Written Declarations receive an updated signatories list from e-mailbox ‘ Déclarations écrites ‘ on Monday afternoon in Strasbourg, Wednesday morning in Brussels and on Friday morning after the sessions. An updated signatories list during the EU sessions can be provided individually upon request. No updating of the signatories list will take place between sessions.

    The Radiation Research Trust would like to thank fellow trustee Liz Lynne MEP and her colleagues Kathy Sinnott and Carl Schlyter for submitting this very important written Declaration and urge you to encourage your MEP”™s to support the important Declaration.

    WRITTEN DECLARATION

    pursuant to Rule 116 of the Rules of Procedure

    by Elizabeth Lynne, Kathy Sinnott and Carl Schlyter

    on the risks of exposure to electromagnetic fields resulting from the use of wireless technology

    Lapse date: 7.5.2009
    0047/2009

    Written declaration on the risks of exposure to electromagnetic fields resulting from the use of wireless technology

    The European Parliament,

    ”“ having regard to Rule 116 of its Rules of Procedure,

    A whereas there is considerable public concern about health risks linked to exposure to electromagnetic fields resulting from the use of radio antennas, mobile telephones, cordless phones and Wi-Fi devices,

    B. whereas there is evidence that increased exposure to wireless technology in homes and schools can in certain circumstances produce biological effects below the levels laid down in the current EMF radiation exposure guidelines,

    1. Calls on the Commission and the Member States to facilitate further research into the risks to human health posed by the use of such equipment, so that Member States can adopt legislation on the basis of reliable data;

    2. Calls on the Member States to adopt the Liechtenstein legislation which sets an exposure limit of 0.6 V/m for mobile phone transmission antennas in sensitive areas such as homes, schools and workplaces;

    3. Calls on the Member States to produce information to make the public aware of the possible health risks of exposure to EMF radiation;

    4. Calls for independently funded research into electrohypersensitivity, which is recognised as a disability in Sweden;

    5. Calls on the Commission and the Member States to consider promoting wired technologies for data communication instead of radio or microwave wireless technologies;

    6. Instructs its President to forward this declaration, together with the names of the signatories, to the Council.

    Kind Regards,
