Forskere og leger fra 37 land krever at 5G-utbyggingen stanses

En pressemelding av det alvorlige slaget ble sendt ut kloden rundt i går. Den kommer nesten ikke til å bli lagt merke til – til tross for at dens innhold er vel så akutt som klimakrisen. Kanskje du i det minste kan videresende den til lokalavisa der du bor?

Her får du først pressemeldingen som fulgte med – i min oversettelse. Selve erklæringen og listen over undertegnere finner du nedenfor – nå (fra 21.9.2017) også med lenke til norsk tekst: 

Mer enn 180 forskere og leger fra 37 land sendte onsdag 13. september en  erklæring til ledelsen i EU-kommisjonen der de ber om stans i økningen av master til den planlagte 5G-utbyggingen. Bekymringer over helsevirkningene fra sterkere strålingseksponering gjelder blant annet mulige nevrologiske virkninger, ufruktbarhet og kreft.

“Trådløsnæringen forsøker å utplassere teknologi som kan ha visse meget konkrete utilsiktede skadevirkninger,” forklarer en av organisatorene bak henvendelsen, legen og forskeren Lennart Hardell, MD, PhD, professor ved Avdeling for onkologi, Fakultetet for medisin og helse, Örebro Universitet, Örebro, Sverige. “Vitenskapelige studier fra langt tilbake såvel som mange nyere studier påviser konsekvent skadelige virkninger på mennesker når de trådløse produktene testes på skikkelig måte og under betingelser som likner på virkelige situasjoner. Når vi alt finner helsefare ved slike nivåer, er vi meget bekymret over at det økte eksponeringsnivået fra 5G-strålingen vil føre til tragisk, uopprettelig skade.”

5G-utbyggingen, som er planlagt for å ta unna større mengder data raskere gjennom trådløse nettoverføring, kommer til å kreve at det bygges master for hvert tiende til tyvende hus i bystrøk.

I brevet til den Europeiske Kommisjon skriver forskerne:

Vi som har undertegnet, mer enn 180 forskere og leger fra 35 land, anbefaler stans i utrullingen av femte generasjon, 5G, for telekommunikasjon inntil mulige farer for menneskers helse og for miljøet har blir fullt ut undersøkt av forskere som er uavhengige fra næringen.”

Forskeren Joel Moskowitz, PhD, University of California, Berkeley offentlig helse, forklarer:

Fagfellevurdert forskning har dokumenterter at næringen har påvirket studier av helsevirkninger fra strålingen fra trådløs kommunikasjon. Vi insisterer på at at 5G må stanses inntil forskning som er uavhengig fra næringen kan ble utført for å sikre folkehelsen.”

Moskowitz var en av rådgiverne bak en tidligere appell, the International EMF Scientist Appeal, et bønneskrift levert til Forente Nasjoner og Verdens Helseorganisasjon i 2015. Denne appellen er nå signert av mer enn 230 forskere fra 41 land. Alle av dem har publisert fagfellevurdert forskning om biologiske eller helsemessige virkninger av elektromagnetiske felt (EMF).

Siden Appellen ble publisert, har verdens største $25 millioners studie blitt utført av USAs the Det Nasjonale Toksikologi- Programmet.  Det framviser statistisk signifikant vekst i forekomstenen av hjerne- og hjertekreft blant dyr som ble eksponert for mobilstråling svakere enn internasjonale retningslinjer. Dette støtter opp under studier som viser en sammenheng mellom mennesker og mobilstråling og hjernesvulst, slik det er blitt påvist i en rekke mange fagfellevurderte forskningsstudier.

Appellen og erklæringen som kom denne uka peker på fagfolkenes bekymringer knyttet til eksponering for radiofrekvent stråling som omfatter …

“ … økt risiko for kreft, cellestress, økning av skadelige frie radikaler, genetiske skader, strukturelle og funksjonelle endringer av reproduksjonssystemet, mangler i læreevne og hukommelse, nevrologiske forstyrrelser og negative virkninger på menneskers generelle velvære. Skadevirkningene rammer langt videre enn menneskeheten, siden der er stigende belegg for skadevirkninger på såvel plante- og dyreliv.

Så langt pressemeldingen (som du f.eks. finner HER på svensk). Hvordan står det så til med 5G-utrullingen her til lands? Vi kan regne med at det er omtrent som i USA og i Sverige, det vil si at den for lengst er under forberedelse:

For siden de gjeldende norske grenseverdiene ikke overskrides og forskriften sier at slik stråling ikke er farlig så lenge «god praksis» er fulgt, mens «god praksis» defineres som å holde seg under grenseverdiene, er det jo ingen fare, så da er det bare å kjøre på.

Hvem føler seg kallet til å gripe inn og stanse dette? HOD? Telenor-sjefen? Legestanden? Noen som har barn og barnebarn?

Miljøbevegelsen sover. Journalister flest har ikke kunnskapen de trenger for å forstå hva det handler om, og gjør heller narr av «tinnfoliehattene». Statens strålevern sitter der i sin egen verden med fortidas briller på og har tilrettelagt for at 5G-utrullingen ikke skal møte motstand. Så derfra kan vi ikke vente oss noen hjelp. Motstanden vil såvisst heller ikke komme fra de el-overfølsomme, for de har nok med sitt.

Fins det noen der ute med tid og ressurser til å sette i gang noe?

Scientists warn of potential serious health effects of 5G

September 11, 2017

We the undersigned, more than 170 scientists from 36 countries, recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation, 5G, for telecommunication until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry. 5G will substantially increase exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) on top of the 2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, etc. for telecommunications already in place. RF-EMF has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment.

(Note: Blue links below are references.)

5G leads to massive increase of mandatory exposure to wireless radiation

5G technology is effective only over short distance. It is poorly transmitted through solid material. Many new antennas will be required and full-scale implementation will result in antennas every 10 to 12 houses in urban areas, thus massively increasing mandatory exposure.

With ”the ever more extensive use of wireless technologies, nobody can avoid to be exposed. Because on top of the increased number of 5G-transmitters (even within housing, shops and in hospitals) according to estimates, 10 to 20 billion connections (to refrigerators, washing machines, surveillance cameras, self-driving cars and buses, etc.) will be parts of the Internet of Things. All these together can cause a substantial increase in the total, long term RF-EMF exposure to all EU citizens.

Harmful effects of RF-EMF exposure are already proven

Over 220 scientists from more than 40 countries have expressed their “serious concerns” regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices already before the additional 5G roll-out. They refer to the fact that ”numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines”. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plants and animals.

After the scientists’ appeal was written in 2015 additional research has convincingly confirmed serious health risks from RF-EMF fields from wireless technology. The world’s largest study (25 million US dollar) National Toxicology Program (NTP), shows statistically significant increase in the incidence of brain and heart cancer in animals exposed to EMF below the ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) guidelines followed by most countries. These results support results in human epidemiological studies on RF radiation and brain tumour risk. A large number of peer-reviewed scientific reports demonstrate harm to human health from EMFs.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the cancer agency of the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2011 concluded that EMFs of frequencies 30 KHz – 300 GHz are possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B). However, new studies like the NTP study mentioned above and several epidemiological investigations including the latest studies on mobile phone use and brain cancer risks confirm that RF-EMF radiation is carcinogenic to humans.

The EUROPA EM-EMF Guideline 2016 states that ”there is strong evidence that long-term exposure to certain EMFs is a risk factor for diseases such as certain cancers, Alzheimer’s disease, and male infertility…Common EHS (electromagnetic hypersensitivity) symptoms include headaches, concentration difficulties, sleep problems, depression, lack of energy, fatigue, and flu-like symptoms.”

An increasing part of the European population is affected by ill health symptoms that have for many years been linked to exposure to EMF and wireless radiation in the scientific literature. The International Scientific Declaration on EHS & multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS), Brussels 2015, declares that: «In view of our present scientific knowledge, we thereby stress all national and international bodies and institutions…to recognize EHS and MCS as true medical conditions which acting as sentinel diseases may create a major public health concern in years to come worldwide i.e. in all the countries implementing unrestricted use of electromagnetic field-based wireless technologies and marketed chemical substances… Inaction is a cost to society and is not an option anymore… we unanimously acknowledge this serious hazard to public health…that major primary prevention measures are adopted and prioritized, to face this worldwide pan-epidemic in perspective.» 

Precautions

The Precautionary Principle (UNESCO) was adopted by EU 2005: When human activities may lead to morally unacceptable harm that is scientifically plausible but uncertain, actions shall be taken to avoid or diminish that harm.

Resolution 1815 (Council of Europe, 2011): ”Take all reasonable measures to reduce exposure to electromagnetic fields, especially to radio frequencies from mobile phones, and particularly the exposure to children and young people who seem to be most at risk from head tumours…Assembly strongly recommends that the ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) principle is applied, covering both the so-called thermal effects and the athermic [non-thermal] or biological effects of electromagnetic emissions or radiation” and to ”improve risk-assessment standards and quality”.

The Nuremberg code (1949) applies to all experiments on humans, thus including the roll-out of 5G with new, higher RF-EMF exposure. All such experiments: ”should be based on previous knowledge (e.g., an expectation derived from animal experiments) that justifies the experiment. No experiment should be conducted, where there is an a priori reason to believe that death or disabling injury will occur; except, perhaps, in those experiments where the experimental physicians also serve as subjects.” (Nuremberg code pts 3-5). Already published scientific studies show that there is ”a priori reason to believe” in real health hazards.

The European Environment Agency (EEA) is warning for ”Radiation risk from everyday devices» in spite of the radiation being below the WHO/ICNIRP standards. EEA also concludes: ”There are many examples of the failure to use the precautionary principle in the past, which have resulted in serious and often irreversible damage to health and environments…harmful exposures can be widespread before there is both ‘convincing’ evidence of harm from long-term exposures, and biological understanding [mechanism] of how that harm is caused.”

Safety guidelines” protect industry not health

The current ICNIRP ”safety guidelines” are obsolete. All proofs of harm mentioned above arise although the radiation is below the ICNIRP «safety guidelines». Therefore new safety standards are necessary. The reason for the misleading guidelines is that conflict of interest of ICNIRP members due to their relationships with telecommunications or electric companies undermine the impartiality that should govern the regulation of Public Exposure Standards for non-ionizing radiation…To evaluate cancer risks it is necessary to include scientists with competence in medicine, especially oncology.”

The current ICNIRP/WHO guidelines for EMF are based on the obsolete hypothesis that The critical effect of RF-EMF exposure relevant to human health and safety is heating of exposed tissue.” However, scientists have proven that many different kinds of illnesses and harms are caused without heating (”non-thermal effect”) at radiation levels well below ICNIRP guidelines.

We urge EU:

1) To take all reasonable measures to halt the 5G RF-EMF expansion until independent scientists can assure that 5G and the total radiation levels caused by RF-EMF (5G together with 2G, 3G, 4G, and WiFi) will not be harmful for EU-citizens, especially infants, children and pregnant women, as well as the environment.

2) To recommend that all EU countries, especially their radiation safety agencies, follow Resolution 1815 and inform citizens, including, teachers and physicians, about health risks from RF-EMF radiation, how and why to avoid wireless communication, particularly in/near e.g., daycare centers, schools, homes, workplaces, hospitals and elderly care.

3) To appoint immediately, without industry influence, an EU task force of independent, truly impartial EMFandhealth scientists with no conflicts of interest1 to re-evaluate the health risks and:

a) To decide about new, safe “maximum total exposure standards” for all wireless communication within EU.

b) To study the total and cumulative exposure affecting EU-citizens.

c) To create rules that will be prescribed/enforced within the EU about how to avoid exposure exceeding new EU ”maximum total exposure standards” concerning all kinds of EMFs in order to protect citizens, especially infants, children and pregnant women.

4) To prevent the wireless/telecom industry through its lobbying organizations from persuading EU-officials to make decisions about further propagation of RF radiation including 5G in Europe.

5) To favor and implement wired digital telecommunication instead of wireless.

We expect an answer from you no later than October 31, 2017 to the two first mentioned signatories about what measures you will take to protect the EU-inhabitants against RF-EMF and especially 5G radiation. This appeal and your response will be publicly available.
