Appeal to U.N. to protect humans from wireless technology

International Scientists Appeal to U.N. to Protect Humans and Wildlife from Electromagnetic Fields and Wireless Technology

WHO’s conflicting stance on risk needs strengthening, says 190 scientists

On May 11, 2015, 190 scientists from 39 nations submitted an appeal to the United Nations, UN member states and the World Health Organization (WHO), requesting they adopt more protective exposure guidelines for electromagnetic fields (EMF) and wireless technology in the face of increasing evidence of risk. These exposures are a rapidly growing form of environmental pollution worldwide.

The “International EMF Scientist Appeal” asks the Secretary General and UN affiliated bodies to encourage precautionary measures, to limit EMF exposures, and to educate the public about health risks, particularly to children and pregnant women.

The Appeal highlights WHO’s conflicting positions about EMF risk. WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classified Radiofrequency radiation as a Group 2B “Possible Carcinogen” in 2011, and Extremely Low Frequency fields in 2001. Nonetheless, WHO continues to ignore its own agency’s recommendations and favors guidelines recommended by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). These guidelines, developed by a self-selected group of industry insiders, have long been criticized as non-protective.

The Appeal calls on the UN to strengthen its advisories on EMF risk for humans and to assess the potential impact on wildlife and other living organisms under the auspices of the UN Environmental Programme, in line with the science demonstrating risk, thereby resolving this inconsistency.

Martin Blank, PhD, of Columbia University, says, “International exposure guidelines for electromagnetic fields must be strengthened to reflect the reality of their impact on our bodies, especially on our DNA. The time to deal with the harmful biological and health effects is long overdue. We must reduce exposure by establishing more protective guidelines.”

Joel Moskowitz, PhD, of University of California, Berkeley, says, “ICNIRP guidelines set exposure standards for high-intensity, short-term, tissue-heating thresholds. These do not protect us from the low-intensity, chronic exposures common today. Scientists signing the Appeal request that the UN and member nations protect the global human population and wildlife from EMF exposures.”

    In what way does the Victorian Govt, the electricity distribution companies and
    ARPANSA differ from FIFA ?

    • Ben Walker says:

      Anonymous, based on recent news regarding the arrest of corrupt FIFA officials, I can certainly tell you how in what way these entities that you mention are quite alike.

    When a person cannot do anything about removing a stinking piece of apparatus from their premises that they just do not want and which is transmitting what they know or solemnly believe to be harmful microwave radiation through their premises, there is something seriously wrong with this Nation.

    Victorians are being threatened every bit now as they were during the rollout phase. All Victorians are being held to ransom by the state Government. The threat to cut off your power may not be audible to the naked ear but it is still being spoken. The choices being offered by the State Government to every single Victorian are to either accept the radiation or lose your power. Make no mistake, all Victorians are being threatened. What sort of mongrel cruel government is this that would hold a whole population to ransom by holding such a big stick over them in this manner ? Cruel cruel cruel nation that we have become.

    • Vinnie says:

      Well said, Jaidyn, you have absolutely nailed it!

      Freedom has become an illusion. They are forcing smart meters on people, spraying our air with who-knows-what chemicals, putting fluoride in our water supply, forcing vaccinations.

      The people are the Government the other one is a corporation. You aren’t be threatened by the true Government, the people. The stick they are holding is not that big, it was at the start, but they have made many mistakes. As for cutting people’s power off, the retailer would be in breach of the contract they have with you and therefore would be in a bit of trouble.
      They have more to worry about than you. Try a Royal Commission and has any corruption taken place. What about prison time and losing their homes, money, jobs and everything else. Next time they wield this big stick you might try wielding your own. Find penalties in the Crimes Act. Bullying carries penalties even psychological bullying. Threats, intimidation and coercion all carry penalties.
      I assume you have a transmitter and want it off your property. We do have to find a way to achieve this.

      • Peter says:

        There is a transmitter on my neighbor’s property and I want it removed. We also MUST find a way to achieve this.

        • Anonymous says:

          Peter, how do you change the minds of lazy selfish people? Maybe in the near future anyone that has a possible cancer causing device on their property should be held liable if the device is harming others, much like second hand smoke. I am sure that the lazy masses would sit up and take notice if they were told they had to pay for your home to be shielded or they were liable for any harm. If proven that the radiation from smart devices is entering your home and harming you then they would be liable.

    • Anonymous says:

      Man has always been cruel and it has become more evident now. People don’t care because the consequences have not kicked in yet and when they do they will ignore it. They think this is survival but its not. Apathy does not save your life. People are lazy and mean and selfish and some people are even happy that my family has suffered, they take great delight in this.
      Look up the crimes act and find penalties. Did the smart meter installer trespass on your property? Did you have a sign up? You need to put everything in writing for starters and send it registered mail. Try and find out the name of the installer this person will be the first person that will be held responsible for any harm.

    Some symptoms of radiation exposure are:

    Chronic fatigue
    Hyperactivity
    Waking up between 3:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m.
    After intense dreams: teeth grinding or tossing
    Sweating without being really warm, especially at night
    “Sleeping” or tingling hands and feet
    Cramps in the feet or calves (can also be magnesium deficiency)
    Stiffness or stiff legs when standing
    Urge to urinate with little urine produced
    Hyperventilation
    Shortness of breath
    Palpitations
    Cramped feeling that radiates from chest to shoulders and jaw
    High blood pressure
    Rigid (usually) left shoulder
    A tingling sensation in stomach and chest

    biological effects including:

    Sperm damage
    DNA breaks
    Increased glucose in the brain
    Weakened bones
    Genetic stress
    Immune system dysfunction
    Effects on unborn children
    More worrying is the link between these exposures and a long list of diseases such as:

    Alzheimer’s disease
    Autism
    Brain Tumors
    Breast cancer
    Brain cancer

    Hope is on the horizon regarding affordable solar batteries. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-05-21/powerwall-solar-batteries-to-transform-electricity-industry/6488230. Those who get in early will probably benefit more than those who have to wait to try to afford one. I say this because the report states that AGL has already started to see how they can profit from this.

    In 2013 i sent an email to enquiries@cancervic.org.au. This is what i asked.
    I am writing to ask you if your organization is doing anything about the forced installation of wireless smart meters in Victoria. Cigarettes are required to carry a warning, why aren’t possibly carcinogenic smart meters required to carry a warning.
    This is the reply,
    Thank you for taking the time to contact us.
    Due to the high volume of emails, we are unfortunately unable to answer all enquiries individually.
    However, the website link below will provide you a resource that will assist with your enquiry and our position and I have discovered that Smart Meters per se are not on the World Health Organization 2B list, but EMF electromagnetic radiation (eg, mobile phones) are. Please feel free to browse the link below.
    So mobile phones are on the list but not smart meters.
    Cigarettes are not on the known human carcinogen list per se either, it is Tobacco smoking.
    The link they provided did not contain any information about cancervic’s position on smart meters at all. This is the link,

  6. Sue says:

    I don’t mind the transmission of electricity through a wire or through a cable but when these rapacious greedy and evil men want to transmit their $H1T through my body, then that my friends is a very different story.

    • Stephen Athorn says:

      Nobody should be allowed to have a monopoly on the air and nobody should be allowed to trespass and violate the air on anybody else’s private property.

      • Sue says:

        Yeah, and especially so when the source of violation has been placed on a neighboring private property of some other person with the perpetrator of the violation standing at a distance. There’s something clearly not right about this.

    • Hammer Mann says:

      I agree with you Sue.

  7. sdjm says:

    Well, this is a step in the right direction by those scientists, in any case. Whether they are actually heard is another story but the time for action is overdue!

  8. Anonymous says:

    Why appeal to the UN? They should be demanding that the environment be cleaned up and these corporations should be made to foot the bill. If we don’t demand action and only ask, then they have already won. I would not believe anything the WHO says now or in the future. The WHO is just made up of humans. These people are not any smarter than the average person.
    Appeals are requests. We all have a right to live in a clean and safe environment. .

  9. Tez says:

    The UN….a toothless tiger if ever there was one.

    • Jurgen says:

      Well if you research the UN’s “agendas” you will find something about a sustainability agenda that many people believe is the reason why smart meters are being pushed out into the world. In other words we have an appeal to protect humans from wireless technology being made to those who may be the very perpetrators of this violation of human life. You have to ask whether population reduction is part of the sustainability agenda.

      • Hammer Mann says:

        Those who do not support Human Life and the Sanctity of Human Life and the Sanctity of Human Life are MURDERERS and no better than Hitler and Mussolini and other mad-men like Napoleon Bonaparte, none of them GREAT MEN but all Murderers as well as Joseph Goebbels, Himmler and the rest of their ilk.

      • icouldahad says:

        Jurgen, you are 100% correct. I actually read an old doc from the UN and they were requesting technology be made available so they could gather energy usage from every country down to individual usage. If I ever find that doc again I’ll be sure to post a link.
        I also know that the UN was supposed to be in charge of the ‘smart grid’ so they could ‘redistribute’ – how very Marxist of them – energy from A1 countries to those poor people the UN intentionally keeps poor by denying them the ability to build cheap, coal plants for electricity.
        All the problems in the world originate from the UN’s Agenda 21, from ‘smart’ tech to GMOs to multiculturalism to planning overlays, etc. The world would be a much better place if the UN was shut down.

  10. Paul says:

    What’s the bet that this initiative will be quietly swept under the mat? If it were then there’d be no way to ‘dumb down’ the population.

    I asked a cancer organization to explain why smart transmitter radiation is on the possible carcinogen list. What i asked is, if the argument is,smart transmitters are outside and only transmit for a short time, why then are they even on this list? They wouldn’t answer my question. Its a simple question, but i never got an answer.
    This is a question we should all be asking of ARPANSA. Meters don’t transmit information only communication devices do this. I think we have all established that they are not meters. I would like an answer to my question, but i suspect i will never get it from the WHO or anyone else.

    • Happy Dissenter says:

      Anonymous, you would think the cancer place would be pushing for strategies to save people. What a shame. There are the odd doctors/ scientists who speak out about EMFs and EMRs but many are silent. I find this very disappointing.

      • Anonymous says:

        Happy Dissenter, this is more than disappointing, it is shocking. This cancer organization I emailed was overseas. They have quite a bit of information on smart meters. This organization was actually helpful unlike my response from the Cancer council of Victoria.
        I also emailed interstate Cancer Councils they were also helpful, but not the Victorian Cancer Council. Why is it that the Cancer Councils interstate went out of the way to assist me with any information they could obtain, they even offered to keep me updated.
        I have emailed the Council Cancer in Victoria only a few months ago they never responded. I also emailed then over a year ago, took a while to even get a reply. The reply I got made me quite angry. I still have this letter. The interstate Cancer Councils replied straight away.

        • Paul says:

          The answer is that Victoria has government-sanctioned smart meters.

          • Anonymous says:

            Paul i knew the answer when i got my reply. I also sent an email to an interstate environmental organization that deals with radiation. I got a reply straight away. When i sent an email back and told this man that i lived in Victoria, I never got a reply at all. It’s not just Victoria. If i mention that i live in Victoria, i usually don’t get a reply.

      • Anonymous says:

        Yes, you would think that with all the suffering cancer patients and their families endure. That all precautions would be put in place to prevent suffering. Having had numerous family members that have died of cancer and suffered with cancer, I was very angry at the reply I got from the Cancer Council of Victoria.
        One of my friends died two years ago from cancer. He was a single father and he left his two young boys behind. The cancer killed him quite quickly. He was still young and now he is in the cold hard ground, his sons have no father and the mother is not in the picture. My friend should have lived long enough to see his boys grow into men. Maybe the Cancer Council of Victoria should remember that cancer doesn’t just harm the sufferer, but all those around the sufferer.

      • Hammer Mann says:

        To Happy Dissenter,
        Those people and or Doctors of Medicine who don’t speak out are disobeying their Hippocratic Oath and are sham Medical Doctors as well as cowards of the worst kind.

    • Hammer Mann says:

      I allege that ARPANSA’s so called SCIENTISTS are corrupt as they will never give me a straight answer.
      These so-called scientists at ARPANSA are in the pay of an I allege to be corrupt Victorian Government, and I allege they don’t give a RAT’s ARSE about your health or your welfare at all. I further allege that all of these so-called ARPANSA Scientists are not worth the name of SCIENTISTS and are a bunch of self-seeking Sissies too Gutless to admit the Truth that these dopy so-called Smart Electric A.M.I Machines and the N.B.N Radio receiving towers here in Victoria and Australia wide and Microwave Baby Monitors have been and still are ruining peoples and animals and all of LIFE’s way of Life !
      A Pox on all of you at ARPANSA.
