Mobile phone radiation can weaken brain performance
Switzerland Created: 20 Jul 2018
Swiss researchers have confirmed the potentially damaging impact of the frequent use of mobile phones among adolescents.

A study found that the so called figural memory performance – the ability to remember abstract forms – can deteriorate if the brain is often subjected to high frequency electromagnetic fields, according to the Tropical and Public Health Institute.

The research included more than 700 teenagers from German-speaking Switzerland over 12 months for the first large-scale study of its kind, the institute said in a statement on Thursday.

The results are in line with findings from a 2015 study among more than 400 teenagers, the scientists say.

The latest study found evidence that radiation has had a significant impact on the right half of the brain - where the figural memory is located -, among adolescents who hold the phone to their right ear when making a call.

Sending text messages or surfing the internet has had no noticeable impact, according to the scientists.

However, more research is needed to determine the significance of the research and to exclude other factors, they added.

The study was carried out in cooperation with a European Union research programme, Geronimo, and was co-funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.

Swiss Council of States rejects rise to radiation limits
Switzerland Created: 14 Dec 2016
The Swiss Council of States has voted against a motion to raise the upper limit on radiation transmissions from mobile radio antennas.

The motion, which was approved by the National Council in June, was rejected by the state council by a margin of 20 to 19. Under the bill, radio antennas would be authorised to transmit a higher level of radiation in a bid to increase their capacity.

The Swiss telecommunications association Asut warned that rejecting the bill would lead to the need for thousands of new transmissions towers to keep pace with the growing demand for mobile internet.

The campaign against the bill was based on health concerns raised by residents. By contrast, Federal Councillor Doris Leuthard argued that 90 percent of radiation exposure comes from terminals, rather than antennas, and cited WHO guidelines that higher radiation levels were within safe limits, according to Neue Zuercher Zeiting.

What the WHO knew about microwaves and health in 1973
Switzerland Created: 17 Apr 2016
Microwave radio frequencies have been known for several decades as being toxic! WHO mandated 60 scientists and issued a 40 reports book showing this toxicity back in 1974. It is called:

Biologic Effects and Health Hazards of Microwave Radiation - WHO
International Symposium Research Agreement No. 05-609-04 - 1974

It is very symptomatic that this document does not show on the WHO website today, isn't it?

And why is the WHO denying this information now?
Could the WHO now be classed as a criminal organization, because of the health risk, harm and early death that they are responsible for?

One glance at this map and you'll realize we can't leave reductionist physicists (ICNIRP) in charge
Switzerland Created: 28 Mar 2016
You don't even have to understand it - just marvel at its wonderful complexity - and you'll instantly realize that ICNIRP neither can or will ever get something like exposure guidelines right. And that may be the whole point. Their reductionist ideas are just too - reduced! Well, that and the fact that their guidelines don't discriminate between the dead or alive.
Their brilliant idea is: throw enough energy at something, and it WILL eventually heat up.
Come on... Every housewife knows that already...

WHO admits that Cell Phones cause Cancer (2011)
Switzerland Created: 1 Feb 2016
After years of denial from the cell phone companies and related scientists, linking mobile phones to cancer, the WHO has announced that it has now classified cellphones as a possible carcinogen, similar to lead, DDT and vehicle exhaust.

Petition: World Health Organization: to recognize electromagnetic and chemical hypersensitivities as real diseases.
Switzerland Created: 13 Nov 2015
Why this is important
Following the fifth Paris Appeal congress, which took place on the 18th of May, 2015, the attending European, American and Canadian scientists unanimously decided to create a working group and to write a Common International Declaration to request an official recognition of these new diseases and of their sanitary consequences worldwide.
The declaration calls upon national and international bodies and institutions and particularly the WHO, for taking urgently their responsibility for recognizing electrohypersensitivity and multiple chemical sensitivity as real diseases, including them in the International Classification of Diseases.

This International Declaration also asks national and international institutions to adopt simple precautionary measures of prevention, to inform populations and requires the appointment of real independent expert groups to evaluate these sanitary risks in total scientific objectivity, which is not the case today.

Scientists who said vaping was safe were paid by the e-cigarette firms! (Comments below, this is serious!)
Switzerland Created: 31 Aug 2015
Hi all.
Try to change the Scenario: Imagine it is the harm of the Wireless Microwave Radiation which affects all on this website they (WHO) had actually woken up to!
Well No Such Luck as YET, Sorry ! Even if the IARC/WHO has classified EMR as a 2b carcinogenic agent! The WHO still skate around it, the ghost of Repacholi? I have no idea, fact is they do all they can to resist, like taking years to publish results, skewing results etc. I wonder WHY?
Is it because the Telecoms Industry is SUCH a BIG Donor to the WHO?
But if you look it through the links you will find the Similarities where the WHO still persists to try to tell us, the One Is harmful, but OURS is Fine and full of Vitamins! Like just what the Doctor ordered!
How come??
Could it be because the "Scientists" want a Fat Pension like their "Picture bride" Repacholi?

I am putting this as a Topic in our MV Forum and Please if you have comments give it a go.
Best regards. Agnes

This is NOT the first time, and I am sure it will not be the last time, the WHO is in the "Limelight" for negligence!
Switzerland Created: 19 Jul 2015
In 2007 the WHO were slammed for ignoring evidence when developing "evidence based guidelines":

"When developing "evidence-based" guidelines, the World Health Organization routinely forgets one key ingredient: evidence.
That is the verdict from a study published in The lancet online Tuesday.
The medical journal's criticism of WHO could shock many in the global health community, as one of WHO's main jobs is to produce guidelines on everything from fighting the spread of bird flu and malaria control to enacting anti-tobacco legislation.

"This is a pretty seismic event," lancet editor Dr. Richard Horton, who was not involved in the research for the article.
"It undermines the very purpose of WHO."

We have known for a Very Long Time that the WHO is totally Unfit for the role they are suposed to play, Now others see it too!
Switzerland Created: 9 Jul 2015
WHO Health chiefs attacked. (By Editor: This is about the Ebola crisis, but exactly the same goes for the much more serious, Long Term and Life Changing Health Threat by the Wireless Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation Industry, which pollution irradiate the planets people as well as the rest of All LIVING THINGS 24/7/365.
The WHO people are so deep in the pocket of the Industry´s, that they even Dis-regard and lie about the cancer classification by the EMF Radiation their own Cancer Institution "IARC" reluctantly had to conclude in 2011.

Now it seems they are equally UNFIT on most other subjects as well.
In the meantime have decided to Re-name them W-I-HO (Namely "World Industry Health Organization"!

But to the article:
"The World Health Organization is unfit to deal with global emergencies, according to a review in the wake of the ebola crisis.
A panel led by Dame Barbara Stocking, former head of Oxfam GB, found issues with the structure of the WHO and its actions.
The epidemic, which began in West Africa in December 2013 and killed 11000 was not declared a public health emergency by WHO until August 2014.

The independent report said that the WHO lacked a “culture of rapid decision-making” and was not protective enough, calling for leadership changes. It said: “The world simply cannot afford another period of Inaction until the next health crisis.”
The WHO said it had already moved forward with some of the recommendations."

Well, We have seen how the Institution is totally on the "Industries" payroll, be it Pharma or EMF and now we ould very much want to know How and With What they have "MOVED WITH Recommendations!
Don´t get your hopes up to early though!

BUT be Vigilant, and if possible write to the WHO and ASK: WHICH STEPS HAVE BEEN TAKEN!"
After all, We are the people who pay their wages, They are supposed to work for OUR BENEFIT!!!

Radio Frequency fields: Environmental Health Criteria Monograph
Switzerland Created: 6 Dec 2014
Consultation on the scientific review for the upcoming WHO Environmental Health Criteria - The consultation is open until 15 December 2014.

The World Health Organization is undertaking a health risk assessment of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, to be published as a monograph in the Environmental Health Criteria Series. This publication will complement the monographs on static fields (2006) and extremely low frequency fields (2007), and will update the monograph on radiofrequency fields (1993).

The draft chapters of this document which contain the scientific content are now open for technical consultation by RF experts. We are seeking comments on the accuracy and completeness of the information contained in these chapters. Please note that the literature searches have been done up to December 2012 (in a few instances to December 2013), so the more recent studies are currently not yet included. While the searches and chapters will be updated before finalization of the document, any suggestions for inclusion of peer reviewed studies are welcomed.

The process used in developing the chapters is described in Appendix X. Note that the chapters 1, 13 and 14 which will provide a summary, health risk assessment and protective measures are not available for this consultation. The drawing of conclusions from the literature and the drafting of these chapters is the remit of a formal Task Group that will be convened by WHO at a later stage in the process.
