“The greatest polluting element in the earth’s environment is the proliferation of electromagnetic fields. I consider that to be a far greater threat on a global scale than warming, or the increase of chemical elements in the environment.”

Wireless radiation and man-made electromagnetic radiation – radio-frequency electromagnetic fields (RF/EMF) cause harmful biological effects in humans and living things. We are being increasingly exposed to 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 replacing analog electricity and gas meters with Smart Meters which transmit information using pulsed wireless radiation. Plans are also in place for 5th generation communications 5G which experts warn will have even more dangerous consequences for health and the natural environment.
“If I asked you how much more radiation is penetrating your body today compared to ten years ago, is it twice as much, three times as much? No it’s a quintillion times more. That’s a one with eighteen zeros.”
-Olle Johansson PhD
So-called safety standards do exist for radio frequency (RF/EMF) 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 many 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 RF/EMF 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 affected and experience 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.
