DO YOU KNOW ?

WHAT SAFETY LEVELS THE INDUSTRY USE?

NONE

THEY ONLY FOLLOW GUIDELINES

KNOWN AS I.C.N.I.R.P

icnirp
ICNIRP
  • ICNIRP Guidelines only protect your body from cooking. We all know before heating takes place, many biological changes have already happened.
  • ICNIRP only cover short term exposure.
  • They are only guidelines, they are not law. No one knows the safe levels of radiation
slide5

DIFFERENT COUNTRIES USE DIFFERENT GUIDELINES

TORONTO 6 UNITS

RUSSIA 10 UNITS

POLAND 100 UNITS

US RESEARCH BASE 100 UNITS

INTERNATIONAL COMMISSION 450 UNITS

NRPB FOR BRITAIN (HPA) 450 UNITS

(Recently adopted)

Recent EU-funded project, undertaken by twelve institutions from seven European countries, published its Final Report in November 2004.

Known as The REFLEX Project

Researchers discovered, damage to DNA - both single-strand and double-strand breaks after exposing human, rat and mouse cells to GSM mobile phone systems levels of radiation within the ICNIRP guidelines.

DID YOU KNOW ?

IN OCTOBER 2002 A TEAM OF GERMAN PHYSICIANS, AFTER SEEING A DRAMATIC RISE IN SEVERE AND CHRONIC DISEASES, SET UP THE FREIBURGER APPEAL FOR ACTION TO BE TAKEN. IT HAS SUBSEQUENTLY BEEN ENDORSED BY OVER 6500 PRACTIONERS

IN BRITAIN A GROUP OF 30

DOCTORS FROM CROSBY IN

LIVERPOOL HAVE STARTED A

SIMILAR CAMPAIGN

slide9
FINLAND: HELSINKI APPEAL 2005
  • Calls on the European Parliament to act promptly for the adoption of new safety standards in the European Union. Doctors and researchers, feel concern about the Precautionary Principle not being applied to electromagnetic fields. They want ICNIRP to be rejected.
slide10
Irish Doctors Environmental Association believe that a sub-group of the population are sensitive to electro-magnetic radiation.
  • Sweden now medically recognise that some people are electro-sensitive to this form of radiation . They now have a medical register of 285,000 people and California has 700,000. If the same % applies to the UK, we will have over 2 million people affected.

  • A recent German study (Nov 2004) conducted over 10 years by a team of medical doctors, has discovered a threefold increase in cancer up to 400m from a mast after five years exposure. Compared to people living further away.

A study Kaplan Medical Centre, Israel (April 2004) has discovered a fourfold increase in cancer within 350m after long term exposure to a phone mast and a TENFOLD increase specifically in women.

slide21
Five other mobile phone mast studies have found significant health effects such as headaches, dizziness, depression, fatigue, sleep disorder, difficulty in concentration and cardiovascular problems.
  • Santini et all (Paris) 2002
  • Netherlands Ministries of Economic Affairs (TNO)
  • The microwave syndrome – Further Aspect of a Spanish Study – Oberfeld Gerd, International Conference in Kos, Greece 2004
  • Dr Oberfeld, Salzburg May 2005 – brainwaves changed significantly measured by EEG, group of people exposed 80 metres from a mast.
  • Bamberg, Germany Evaluation of 356 people – DECT, telephones and masts versus level of power flux density. April 2005

  • A planning Inspectorate, George Baird, rejected an appeal from Orange to put a 15m mast 100m from a Primary School in Tameside. The reason for refusal refers to concern about the effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields. He acknowledged that such fears are relevant to his decision.
  • A spokesman from Orange said “Planning guidance means the decision maker is entitled to weigh public concerns as part of the process”.

Legal distinction between -:

“Health effects” and “Health Concerns”

Nick Raynesford, slipped the words “and concerns” into the amended PPG8 on 23rd August 2001

Health effects are a matter for the Department of Health.

Health Concerns are legally a planning issue and one which has to be taken into account by the Decision maker.

  • In Scotland and Ireland every mast has to go through the full planning process.
  • England has a special set of planning laws to help the development of the mobile phone industry.
