Thanks to the so-called PISA* (OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment) survey, in Sweden we now know: student scores in maths, reading comprehension and natural sciences are plummeting. The results are prompting rage in Swedish schools. Something is wrong.

France: The Law on Electromagnetic Waves in 5 Questions

Posted by seumasach on January 25, 2014

It looks like death by a thousand cuts for the cell-phone industry but that will not be enough to prevent a public health catastrophe already well under way

For cell phones, manufacturers will have to recommend use of hand-free kits. All advertising targeting children under 14 will be banned. Regarding children, the initial proposed bill of the ecologists aimed to ban Wi-Fi in all establishments for those under 6. But the Government voted an amendment restraining this measure to those under 3, that is, to childcare facilities. It will thus not concern nursery schools.

Ukrainian study confirms oxidative stress from mobile radiation exposure

Posted by seumasach on December 14, 2013

OVERPRODUCTION OF FREE RADICAL SPECIES IN EMBRYONAL CELLS EXPOSED TO LOW INTENSITY RADIOFREQUENCY RADIATION

Experimental Oncology

2013

Aim: Long-term exposure of humans to low intensity radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMR) leads to a statistically significant increase in tumor incidence. Mechanisms of such the effects are unclear, but features of oxidative stress in living cells under RF-EMR exposure were previously reported. Our study aims to assess a production of initial free radical species, which lead to oxidative stress in the cell. Materials and Methods: Embryos of Japanese quails were exposed in ovo to extremely low intensity RF-EMR of GSM 900 MHz (0.25 μW/cm2) during 158–360 h discontinuously (48 c — ON, 12 c — OFF) before and in the initial stages of development. The levels of superoxide (O2·-), nitrogen oxide (NO·), thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS), 8-oxo-2’-deoxyguanosine (8-oxo-dG) and antioxidant enzymes’ activities were assessed in cells/tissues of 38-h, 5- and 10-day RF-EMR exposed and unexposed embryos. Results: The exposure resulted in a significant persistent overproduction of superoxide and nitrogen oxide in embryo cells during all period of analyses. As a result, significantly increased levels of TBARS and 8-oxo- dG followed by significantly decreased levels of superoxide dismutase and catalase activities were developed in the exposed embryo cells. Conclusion: Exposure of developing quail embryos to extremely low intensity RF-EMR of GSM 900 MHz during at least one hundred and fifty-eight hours leads to a significant overproduction of free radicals/reactive oxygen species and oxidative dam- age of DNA in embryo cells. These oxidative changes may lead to pathologies up to oncogenic transformation of cells. Key Words: non-ionizing radiation, reactive oxygen species, superoxide, nitrogen oxide, 8-oxo-2’-deoxyguanosine, carcinogenesis.

Long-term exposure to microwave radiation provokes cancer growth: evidences from radars and mobile communication systems

Posted by seumasach on July 27, 2013

June 2011

Abstract

In this review we discuss alarming epidemiological and experimental data on possible carcinogenic effects of long term exposure to low intensity microwave (MW) radiation. Recently, a number of reports revealed that under certain conditions the irradiation by low intensity MW can substantially induce cancer progression in humans and in animal models. The carcinogenic effect of MW irradiation is typically manifested after long term (up to 10 years and more) exposure. Nevertheless, even a year of operation of a powerful base transmitting station for mobile communication reportedly resulted in a dramatic increase of cancer incidence among population living nearby. In addition, model studies in rodents unveiled a significant increase in carcinogenesis after 17-24 months of MW exposure both in tumor-prone and intact animals. To that, such metabolic changes, as overproduction of reactive oxygen species, 8-hydroxi-2-deoxyguanosine formation, or ornithine decarboxylase activation under exposure to low intensity MW confirm a stress impact of this factor on living cells. We also address the issue of standards for assessment of biological effects of irradiation. It is now becoming increasingly evident that assessment of biological effects of non-ionizing radiation based on physical (thermal) approach used in recommendations of current regulatory bodies, including the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) Guidelines, requires urgent reevaluation. We conclude that recent data strongly point to the need for re-elaboration of the current safety limits for non-ionizing radiation using recently obtained knowledge. We also emphasize that the everyday exposure of both occupational and general public to MW radiation should be regulated based on a precautionary principles which imply maximum restriction of excessive exposure.

Doctors not convinced of ‘safe radiation’

Posted by seumasach on July 25, 2013

[Can you imagine the London Times publishing an article like this? The lobby may have the media here stitched up but, alas, they can't control everything in this globalized, multipolar world. India is in the the vanguard in dealing with this greatest public health issue of our time.]

Times of India

17th July, 2013

KOLKATA: Top city doctors and researchers don’t share the confidence of cellular operators or even government officials that there is no health hazards associated with mobile towers. They believe that stricter radiation norms need to be enforced and the industry needs to fund research on the subject.

European Citizens’ Initiative: Application of the Precautionary Principle for Electromagnetic Waves

Soon, Application of the Precautionary Principle for Electromagnetic Waves?
by Stéphanie Sanchez, Basta Mag, 5 July 2013 (translation by Meris Michaels). See original document in French here.

What can we do to get the European authorities to seriously look into the issue of application of the precautionary principle regarding electromagnetic waves? Several organizations and groups decided to launch a “European Citizens’ Initiative” (ECI), which would allow, with one million signatures from seven different countries, to put pressure on the European Commission. Stéphane Sanchez, from the French association “Sans Onde”, participated at the end of June in the setting up of a support committee for this Initiative.
