EVENT – THE RIGHT TO HEALTH – STOP 5G – SEGOVIA, SPAIN 16 JUNE 2018
“The risks to health from non-ionizing electromagnetic fields are controversial.
However, the scientific evidence that indicates grave dangers continues to grow: increase in the risk of cancer, infertility, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, electrohypersensitivity…
In recent years we have seen accusations by citizens groups and by scientists, researchers and experts (independent of industry) about conflicts of interest of the committees that decide on the permitted levels to which the entire population is exposed.
According to many experts more and more research points to the necessity to upgrade the classification of radio frequency radiation as a carcinogen to 2A or even to 1.
(Mobile telephony, WiFi, cordless telephones…) This together with evidence of important non-thermal biological effects reinforces the need to apply the precautionary principle in relation to lowering the levels of exposure, with special attention to the most vulnerable groups such as children.
In contrast, the march toward 5G technology involves a radical increase of levels of electromagnetic pollution. Therefore 180 doctors and scientists from 36 countries have written a letter to the European Union demanding a moratorium on its implementation.
Meanwhile the industry tries to make its message about lack of harm prevail through large investments in the media and in ill-concealed lobbying.
We think this at least merits a profound public debate.
Therefore with Saturday’s program we wish to give voice to the point of view of scientists and independent experts with the hope of stimulating a look that is critical as well as scientific that expands the tools that we have as a society to invest in a healthful technology.” Arthur Firstenburg cellphonetaskforce

Wireless radiation and man-made electromagnetic radiation cause harmful biological effects in humans and living beings. We are being increasingly exposed to more and more man-made radiation, electropollution, in our homes, schools, towns, cities, parks, hospitals, from mobile/smart phones, telecommunication masts & antennae, wi-fi, wireless devices, powerlines and pylons. In addition, utility companies are currently rolling out Smart Meter programme and installing them outside and inside our homes, putting everyone, especially children, at higher risk of health problems. Plans are also in place for 5th generation communications 5G which may have even more dangerous consequences for health and the natural environment.
So-called safety standards do exist for radio frequency radiation emissions, but these standards are only based on thermal heating effects. That is to say they only consider these exposures to be harmful if they heat tissue. But these safety standards – which were set decades ago and have not been updated since the significant rise in wireless technology – do not protect us from adverse biological effects which are thought to be the precursor to serious diseases. Scientists have already raised the alarm regarding this issue.
The BioInitiative Report informs us that exposure to wireless and electromagnetic radiation ‘can alter and damage genes, trigger epigenetic changes to gene expression and cause de novo mutations that prevent genetic recovery and healing mechanisms. These exposures may interfere with normal cardiac and brain function; alter circadian rhythms that regulate sleep, healing, and hormone balance; impair short-term memory, concentration, learning and behavior; provoke aberrant immune, allergic and inflammatory responses in tissues; alter brain metabolism; increase risks for reproductive failure (damage sperm and increase miscarriage risk); and cause cells to produce stress proteins’.
There are already thousands of studies and continuing research showing clear dangers of the damaging effects on our bodies to this radiation. These studies show the link between electromagnetic exposure and health concerns, including headaches, tinnitus, joint and limb pain, heart palpitations, concentration and memory problems, inflammation, free-radical damage, DNA damage, neural damage, Alzheimer’s, cancers, increase in childhood cancers and brain tumours, and electromagnetic-hypersensitivity (EHS). Many people in Ireland and worldwide are already sick and presenting with distressing, debilitating symptoms associated with wireless and electromagnetic radiation. Millions of people across the world are suffering with EHS, and the numbers are increasing.
International Doctors’ Appeal Freiburg 2012 – In 2002, more than 1,000 doctors signed the Freiburg Appeal calling on support and demanding precaution with regard to wireless radiation. 10 years later, in 2012, with rapidly increasing radiation being introduced in our society, they relaunched this appeal, calling on physicians, scientists and governments around the world to heed the warnings.
In May 2015 the International EMF Scientist Appeal was sent to 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. To date 225 scientists from 41 nations have signed the 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.
