Hoe electromagnetische straling je ziek kan maken – Professor Olle Johansson

Associate professor, The Experimental Dermatology Unit, Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden The body of evidence on EMF requires a new approach to protection of public health; the growth and development of the fetus, and of children; and argues for strong preventative actions.

These conclusions are built upon prior scientific and public health reports documenting the following:

1) Low-intensity (non-thermal) bioeffects and adverse health effects are demonstrated at levels significantly below existing exposure standards.

2) ICNIRP and IEEE/FCC public safety limits are inadequate and obsolete with respect to prolonged, low-intensity exposures.

3) New, biologically-based public exposure standards are urgently needed to protect public health world-wide.

4) It is not in the public interest to wait.

“In my presentation I will hint at the historic background of electricity and electromagnetic fields, how suspicions early arose that such fields and signals could have negative health effects, and how it lead to today’s public discussion all over the world. I will also touch upon the functional impairment electrohypersensitivity, and which laws and regulations that guide us regarding such a disability. I will go into more depth about the scientific research results regarding adverse health effects of electromagnetic fields, and the urgent need for completely independent research projects to be be inaugurated immediately to ensure our public health. These projects must be entirely independent of all types of commercial interests; public health can not have a price-tag! It is also of paramount importance that scientists involved in such projects must be free of any carrier considerations and that the funding needed is covered to 100%, not 99% or less. This is the clear responsibility of the democratically elected body of every country”.
