Breaking News: International Scientists Appeal to the United Nations
to Protect Humans and Wildlife from Wireless Technology
May 11, 2015
Scientists from 39 nations and who have authored 2,000 peer-reviewed papers on the health and biological effects of non-ionizing radiation are calling for immediate action to protect humans and wildlife. In a letter to the UN, they say that wireless devices pose risks of cancer, genetic damage, changes in reproductive system, and learning and memory deficits.
“Putting it bluntly they are damaging the living cells in our bodies and killing many of us prematurely,” said Dr. Martin Blank, from the Department of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics at Columbia University.
“The levels today are very many times higher than natural background levels, and are growing rapidly because of all the new devices that emit this radiation.”
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.
“U.S. regulatory standards and international guidelines only control for short-term heating of tissue. The standards do not protect us from the low-intensity, chronic exposures to electromagnetic fields (EMF) that are common today. The scientists who signed the Appeal request that the UN and member nations protect the global human population, and animal and plant life from EMF exposures.
There has been strong support from the international scientific community for the Appeal, even among those who believe that scientists should not take public policy positions. Some have taken personal risks to sign the Appeal because this is a public health issue that affects everyone now, as well as future generations."-Joel Moskowitz, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Family and Community Health, School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley, USA
