Electromagnetic pollution: 194 scientists appeal to UN and WHO

194 scientists from 39 countries, engaged in the study of biological and health effects of electromagnetic radiation, appeal to the UN and WHO to exert strong leadership in fostering the development of more protective EMF (electromagnetic fields) guidelines.

Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national safety limits. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damage…

The scientists also argue that because the ICNIRP guidelines do not cover long-term exposure and low-intensity effects, they are insufficient to protect public health.

By not taking action, the WHO is failing to fulfill its role as the preeminent international public health agency.
