    Leszczynski: 1) Summary of the forthcoming Opening Lecture at the EMF Symposium in Mainz, Germany, 2) 5G health issues marginalised

    Excerpt

    From Dariusz Leszczynski’s blog, Between a Rock and a Hard PlaceExcerpt: Wireless Communication Technology and Health: From 1G to 5G and beyond What we know. What we do not know. What we should know. In early 70’s and 80’s, the first generation (1G) of mobile phones and cell tower networks were deployed without prior testing for human health safety. It was assumed that the emitted low power is harmless. However, decades later, in 2011, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiation emitted by cell phones and cell towers, by then already 3rd and 4th generation (3G and 4G), as a possible human carcinogen (category 2B). Since the 2011 classification, a number of research studies was published that not only strengthened the evidence for the 2B classification but provided data suggesting that the IARC classification could be upgraded to the level of a probable human carcinogen (category 2A). SNIP Currently, the new generation of wireless communication, the 5G, is being rapidly deployed. The 5G will introduce new radiation, the millimeter-waves, that was also not tested for human health hazard. Studies on biological and health effects of the millimeter-waves are scarce….SNIP

    Online free summit on 5G

    From the conference website:You may have heard of 5G, it stands for fifth-generation cellular wireless. In a February 2019 US Senate hearing, the wireless industry was forced to admit they have no safety studies on 5G, and don’t plan to do any. Meanwhile, there are thousands of independent studies concluding that wireless radiation causes biological harm. Despite this, the wireless industry is working with government to deploy 5G — it’s a global, for-profit, human experiment… without our consent.What does it mean? Millions of “small” cell towers will be added to every block (which is a serious privacy concern). Each tower emitting radiation at levels known to cause cancer, sterility, DNA damage and other harm… especially to our children, who are most at risk…SNIP

    International Symposium: Biological Effects of Wireless Technology, Mainz, Germany, October 2019

    An international symposium, titled; “Technical progress or progressive irresponsibility? Biological Effects of Wireless Technology” has been organised by a number of European organisations, a partial listing includes:

    The Competence Initiative for the Protection of Humans, the Environmental and Consumer Organization for the Protection against Electromagnetic Radiation, the European Academy of Environmental Medicine (EUROPAEM), Pandora – the Foundation for Independent Research, the Association of Building Biology and other partners. The event is sponsored by Stiftung für Kinder, Freiburg and Auerbach Stiftung, Tettnang. It will take place on October 4. – 6., 2019 at the Electoral Palace Mainz.

    Excerpts from the symposium announcement (detailed schedule of the symposium will be announced later):

    Cell phones, Smartphones, Tablets … Smart Home … Smart City … Internet of Things … The digital transformation of our society is expected to continue with the new 5G standard, largely through mobile and wireless communication. As a result, radiation exposure due to mobile and wireless communication technologies, their infrastructure and applications will increase enormously.

    What health risks are involved? What are the possible consequences for particular groups at risk, especially children and adolescents?…SNIP

    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.

    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.
