    AOCRP-5 and its Groundhog Day Approach to radiofrequency health science

    The Australasian Radiation Protection Society (ARPS) is hosting the 5th Asian and Oceanic IRPA Regional Congress on Radiation Protection – AOCRP5- in Melbourne, Australia during 20 – 23 May 2018. Too bad the term “radiation protection” is a misnomer which really means defining “protection” strictly in accordance with ICNIRP’s time-worn orthodoxy. Dare I say a “Procrustean Approach” in which “protection” is limited to immediate and hazardous radiofrequency/microwave radiation of the intensity to cause thermal biological damage. The same old line endlessly repeated and somewhat reminiscent of the movie Groundhog Day where the same day just keeps on repeating itself over and over and over…..At least in the movie some things were slowly learned by the main character Phil Connors – but not so with the folks at ARPS, IRPA and ICNIRP…..

    Upcoming web conference on the impacts of EMR on wildlife

    From the conference web page:

    WELCOME TO THE EKLIPSE WEB CONFERENCE REGISTRATION
    The impacts of artificial Electromagnetic Radiations on wildlife
    (flora and fauna)

    What is this conference about?

    EMR are used in many different ways, with uses expanding in terms of the range of frequencies and the volume of transmissions. An important issue is to explore how current use of EMR can affect biodiversity and ecosystem services (such as pollination and pest control). Better understanding and awareness of environmental risks from EMR can lead to the development, promotion and implementation of adequate and timely policy solutions.

    We are inviting you to join a wide range of experts from different disciplines as well as policy makers and practitioners for an international discussion of the current knowledge on the effects of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) on wildlife. The aim is to highlight current state of the art in this field, to identify knowledge gaps related to the impacts on different taxonomic groups and ecosystems, and to discuss the technical aspects and methodologies used in current studies.

    Full links to Dariusz Leszczynski’s latest Australian lecture tour

    In August 2017 Dariusz Leszczynski had a lecture tour in Australia and his recorded talks are well worth a viewing. They are a welcome change from the usual spin and denials put out by ACEBR and ARPANSA who cannot, and dare not, see beyond ICNIRP’s dogma.

    Global Expansion of the Wireless: The 5G dive into the great unknown

    Excerpt

    by Adj. Prof. Dariusz Leszczynski, University of Helsinki, Finland

    In 2011, I was one of the 30 invited experts who classified radiation emitted by the wireless communication devices (WCD) as possible human carcinogen. Since that time several new studies have been published and the current scientific evidence suggests that the radiation emitted by the current WCD could be re-classified as probable human carcinogen. This evidence of health risk indicates that the current safety limits are insufficient to protect all users of the WCD. SNIP

    Parent’s success in stopping WiFI installation at Australian school

    The following was written by a mother who took action to inform her child’s school on EMR health issues specific to children. This action resulted in the school enacting an EMR precautionary policy.

    Don

    ***************

    Excerpt:

    An Australian mum has been successful in preventing installation of WiFi at her child’s school and has worked with the school in drafting EMR precautionary measures by requesting compliance with the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and Article 9: Accessibility from the Conventions on the Rights of the Disabled to accommodate her child’s functional impairment.

    She stated “My child has a sensitivity to EMR, specifically WiFi and Bluetooth elicit symptoms.” The school environment was very good already, to change that by installing WiFi would exclude the child’s access to the school. The first step she took was to register a compliment/complaint/ feedback form on the Dept of Education’s website she said. “I requested help to find a WiFi- free high school and stated my child’s health complaints and symptoms. Rather than sending an email which could get “lost” in the system, I chose to use the education department’s processes for registering my complaint regarding accessibility to schools.” Around the same time, the child’s school initiated the WiFi installation discussion again. This quickly led to further conversations with the school and district education officers covering both accessibility issues……

    Here we go again: Science and Wireless Spin 2015

    Playing to the well-worn retro tune of ‘thermoregulatory effects only’ the usual band of thermalists are hosting another so called Science and Wireless conference in Melbourne this year. And to top it all off we have the panel discussion chaired by none other than the eminent Professor Michael Repacholi. Expect the usual whirling dervish spin from this group. Why don’t they ever invite people such as Lennart Hardell to present? The answer to that is obvious.

    Oh! And as for the topic of electrosensitivity expect the answer to be that its all just a psychosomatic disorder by needlessly worrying people.

    Nothing new here….just more Procrustean bullshit.

    Professor Martin Pall’s research on non-thermal bio-effects

    From Peter Tomkinson

    Your readers should be aware of the research reported by Professor Martin L. Pall formerly of Washington State University? He has demonstrated that without temperature change, through the Voltage Gate Calcium Channel (VGCC) it is possible for electrical energy to alter the intracellular calcium levels with potentially devastating health effects.

    In particular this occurs across the plasma membrane and demonstrates clearly that electrical effects can and do activate Ca2+ meaning that chemical effects result directly from electrical stimulus. Ca2+ levels within cells apparently play a critical role in human health, plants too it seems (same mechanism although 2 instead of the 4 that humans have).

    Professor Pall noted that it has been known and accepted for more than 40 years that Pulsed Fields are more Bio-Active than non-pulsed and his study showed that pulsed electrical energy does affect cells in non-thermal conditions. So much for the fraudulent claims of regulators and the industry.

    ALL our WiFi, Cellphones, Cordless DECT telephones, Radio Baby monitors, Smart Meters and the like have a very real potential to do massive and possibly irreversible harm to biological entities such as humans.

    Aust. Conference: Wireless Devices: Risk, Regulation, Compliance and Liability

    This conference takes place at the University of New South Wales (Australia) on 14 October 2015. There is a good line up of speakers (below). Unfortunately I will not be able to attend but I highly recommend attending for those who can make it. With the rapid roll-out of WiFi, smart meters, NBN towers, The Internet of Things, etc., etc., based on suspect health science (Hi Dr. Karl), the legal implications are a potential “Pandora’s Box” for the industry and government. An event not to be missed!

    ICNIRP continues with its Procrustean Approach…keep it on thermal effects only and ignore the rest

    The charade continues….
    ICNIRP/WHO Workshop “A closer look at the thresholds of thermal damage”, 26-28 May 2015

    Scope: In view of updating the guidance on limiting exposure to high frequency (HF) fields, ICNIRP will review the current scientific knowledge on the thresholds of thermal damage. The current workshop will revisit the ICNIRP 1998 concept, namely that the health relevant increase of body core temperature is approximately 1° C and a whole-body exposure with an average SAR of 4 W/kg result in a core temperature increase of less than 1°C within 30 min. Details of this concept as well as thresholds for partial/local body exposures are subjects to review. SNIP
