Re: European Manifesto – Urgent Appeal
The link at the bottom of this email will give you access to the European Manifesto as drawn up by the European Citizens Initiative (ECI). The ECI is a group of 23 organisations from 14 European countries seeking new regulations that will reduce Electromagnetic/Radiofrequency Radiation (EMR) to a level that truly protects public health as well as that of all living things.
Electromagnetic/Radiofrequency Radiation (EMR) is emitted mainly from mobile phones, masts/towers/antennae, cordless phones, wireless utility meters/smart meters, all things wireless (Wi-Fi) including wireless baby monitors and all ‘smart’ devices.
The current EMR safety guidelines refer only to the thermal and short-term effects, but many concerned scientists have been striving to highlight the fact that non-thermal EMR emissions are producing very significant effects on our health. The BioInitiative Report 2012, which includes a total of 3,800 research studies, provides evidence of these damaging and life threatening bioeffects.
At the basis of the thermal paradigm is a claim that there is no viable biological mechanism for the action of weak non-thermal fields on human tissue. In 2015 Dr. Martin Pall (Professor Emeritus, Washington State University) established that such a mechanism exists. Dr Pall’s findings have been peer reviewed by experts in the field and have been conclusively tested many times.
Electrohypersensitivity (EHS) is a new environmental/functional impairment that has emerged from living in an environment laden with extreme levels of EMR. EHS manifests itself through multiple and diverse symptoms. The link between EMR and many modern health issues such as obesity, diabetes, chronic fatigue, cancer, early dementia, autism, DNA damage, infertility etc has already been established by independent scientists. Children are particularly vulnerable as they absorb more radiation than adults and will be exposed to more radiation over their lifetime.
It is estimated that 22 million people are suffering from EHS symptoms across Europe, including hundreds, possibly thousands in Ireland. Symptoms can be debilitating and disabling and are usually experienced through severe headaches, burning sensations, nausea, dizziness, memory/concentration lapses, joint and muscle pain, chronic fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, eye problems, mood changes and the extremely stressful ‘microwave hearing’ i.e. the auditory perception of radio–frequency fields. Many sufferers, along with their medical advisors are unaware that these symptoms are related to EMR.
Some EHS sufferers are forced to give up employment, some cannot stay in their homes or alternatively cannot leave their homes. Daily and social activities such as shopping, visiting family/public services and using public transport become arduous tasks or even impossible. The seemingly unstoppable installation of innumerable Telecom/Wi-Fi systems has resulted in some sufferers having to shield themselves and their homes with radiation blocking materials.
The Precautionary Principle, as recommended by the European Parliamentary Assembly (Resolution 1815) (2011) has been ignored.
The debate must now heat up and become public before it is too late. We now ask you if you would please support the Appeal of the European Citizens Initiative by signing our European Manifesto.
This request is now urgent in light of the findings of the World Health Organisation’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), Monograph 102 Part 2 which classified EMR as a Group 2B (possible) carcinogen: http://monographs.iarc.fr/ENG/Monographs/vol102/mono102.pdf
Also, the National Toxicology Program (USA) (2016) has clearly demonstrated links between exposure to EMR and a higher risk of glioma brain cancer and Schwannoma cancer of the heart. http://biorxiv.org/content/early/2016/06/23/055699
Finally, the European Commission proposal (2016) 589/Fi-en will see every possible space in our environment blanketed in EMR. Everyone will be exposed and everyone is potentially at risk:
