An excerpt from the article:
International Doctor’s Appeal 2012 - 10 Years after Freiburg Appeal: Wireless radiation poses a health risk. Physicians demand precaution now. More than 1000 physicians signed the “Freiburg Appeal” in 2002. It was translated into many languages. As many as 36,000 people from all over the world support its warning about the dangers of wireless radiation.
Today-ten years later-we as physicians call again on the international community. We are deeply concerned. Despite all warnings, more and more new wireless technologies are introduced into our lives: cell phone networks, TETRA, LTE, cordless phones, Wi-Fi, baby monitors, wireless meters, digital radio and TV, and many others. All of these wireless technologies overload the biophysical pathways of cell communication in living systems with increasing layers and densities of electromagnetic fields.
Human, animal, and plant life is controlled by naturally occurring electromagnetic fields (EMF) and signals. Technical fields and frequencies can interfere profoundly with the biological processes of cell communication and cell metabolism. Initially, the self-healing power of living beings will compensate for imbalances through finely tuned control mechanisms. Prolonged electromagnetic stress, however, may lead to a chronic lack of energy and resulting diseases. The consequences of this fundamental impairment of self-regulation have repeatedly been demonstrated in scientific studies:
Clumping of red blood cells, increased permeability of the protective blood-brain barrier, changes in brain wave activity and heart rhythm, unbalanced release of neurotransmitters and hormones (especially the increase in stress hormones), immune system impairment, damage to the genetic material, lowered fertility, to name only a few of the best known examples.
Oxidative cell stress-a major cause of many diseases-has been shown to be the main effect mechanism of radiation exposure.
As physicians, we currently observe a worrisome rise in mental health problems such as depression, burnout syndrome as well as sleep, anxiety, and panic disorders. This also applies to a multitude of other diseases: stroke (also in children and even in fetuses in the womb), degenerative neurological disorders (e.g. dementia, epilepsy, brain tumors), headaches, autism, learning disorders, concentration problems, behavioral disorders, allergies, skin problems, pain syndromes, susceptibility to infections, high blood pressure, metabolic disorders, multi-system disorders, and cancer, to name only the most prominent and most frequent symptoms and disorders. More and more frequently, we also observe a clear pattern of temporal and spatial relationships between the onset of these symptoms and disorders and the start of a radiation exposure, e.g. in the vicinity of a newly installed cell tower, heavy cell phone use, or the use of a DECT cordless phone, wireless Internet router, or other wireless technology in the home, in a neighbor’s home, or at work.
Children and adolescents especially and increasingly display addictive behavior in the use of their cell phones and other online devices. According to the latest scientific evidence, they are also the most vulnerable. The number of those who suffer from electromagnetic hypersensitivity is steadily growing. Electrosensitive individuals can develop severe symptoms immediately or even several hours after the exposure to technical electromagnetic fields and frequencies. As physicians we welcome that Sweden has recognized electromagnetic hypersensitivity as a functional impairment and has provided protected zones for affected people. We would also like to point out and emphasize that the European Parliament has called on its member states “to follow the example of Sweden” and that U.S. State Governors have raised public awareness about the consequences of electromagnetic hypersensitivity.
The initiative of the Austrian Medical Association, which has released a guideline for the diagnosis and treatment of electrosensitive individuals, hopefully will also catch on in other countries. Our medical observations have been confirmed by scientific findings. Adverse effects of electromagnetic fields and the fundamental impairment of biological control mechanisms well below current exposure limits have been demonstrated, and in some instances, for decades...
