In the flyer for the upcoming November 16
EUROPEAN ELECTROSMOG PROTEST in Brussels Professor Olle Johansson states:
Governments and health protection agencies usually hide behind out-of-date “official guidelines” that were drawn up when it was thought that the only way that living organisms could be harmed by electromagnetic radiation was if it was sufficiently strong to cause significant acute heating. And in fluidfilled plastic dolls! This is totally false! There has been countless papers in scientific journals over several decades that show very clearly that there are non-thermal biological effects (some of them extremely harmful) of electromagnetic fields that are well below the official safety guidelines.
The protest is organized by StopUMTS.be, and their points sound very familiar:
WE PROTEST <-> THE EMF-EXPOSURE AT CURRENT LEVELS IS A THREAT TO PUBLIC HEALTH
WE PROTEST <-> THE EU-CONFERENCE ON EMF & HEALTH (HELD AT 16 &17 NOV.) LACKS SCIENTISTS WITH OPPOSING VIEWS
Their 5 demands for all European countries should be OUR demands here in the U.S., which are based on the Precautionary Principle, out of respect for people's human rights to be protected from harm:
1. THE BIOINITIATIVE LIMIT OF 0.6 V/M
2. WHITE ZONES: NO CELL PHONES< WIFI AND DECT_WIRELESS PHONES IN PLACES WITH CHILDREN OR ELDERLY (SCHOOLS< HOSPITALS< CHURCHES,...)
3. RECOGNITION OF ELECTROHYPERSENSITIVITY AS A FUNCTIONAL IMPAIRMENT (as in Sweden)
4. NO 4G/LTE/WIMAX (transmitter masts or antennas)
5. NO "SMART" WIRELESS ENERGY METERS
Good work, StopUMTS.be! This worldwide movement can only grow as more people wake up to the reality and risks of further wireless explosion in their living and working areas.
