The twenty-first century is marked with exponentially increasing development of technologiesthat provide wireless communications. To the pollution of the atmosphere with radio and TVsignals, not only satellite communications but also any varieties of the Wi-Fi networks are added.By 2010 in the USA, 285 million mobile phone subscribers have been registered (for a little bitmore than 300 million inhabitants). The estimate for the world is more than 5 billion mobilephone users at approximately 7 billion people living on this planet. Approximately 2 years ago,the International Agency of Research on Cancer (IARC) classified the electromagnetic fieldsused in mobile communication as a possible cancerogene. This paper discusses the potentialhealth hazard and lack of scientific assessment and regulatory actions in protection of the life onthe planet

How nuclear apologists mislead the world over radiation

Soon after the Fukushima accident last month, I stated publicly that anuclear event of this size and catastrophic potential could present a medical problem of very large dimensions. Events have proven this observation to be true despite the nuclear industry’s campaign about the “minimal” health effects of so-called low-level radiation. That billions of its dollars are at stake if the Fukushima event causes the “nuclear renaissance” to slow down appears to be evident from the industry’s attacks on its critics, even in the face of an unresolved and escalating disaster at the reactor complex at Fukushima.

ICNIRP Moves To Protect The Cell Phone Industry

The below analysis from Cindy Sage raises the question of why has ICNIRP (and IEMFP who does the risk assessments for ICNIRP) moved to release its risk cell phone assessment before the Interphone report is published. It would have seemed better to have waited until Interphone was published and then include that in the risk assessment. This is typical for ICNIRP and works out to be a tremendous gift to the cell phone industry. I wonder how much of a ‘hidden hand’ the cell phone industry had in the writing of this report, especially seeing how the power industry was earlier directly involved in the drafting of a power-frequency risk assessment.
