Appendix 2Potential Harmfulness of Radio Waves

The potential dangers of waves emitted by electronic devices (particularly telephones, modems and relay masts) are the subject of renewed study in Europe and there appears to be growing evidence of their biological impact.

Electromagnetic hypersensitivity, related to exposure to waves, has been officially recognized by the Swedish Ministry of Health. If some people are affected by waves to the point of having to withdraw from all normal social and professional life, this potential resonance of human cells should bring an end to the increasing exposure of individuals, particularly children, to the low frequency waves emitted by electronic devices.

The European “Interphone” study, financed by industry and the European Commission, has demonstrated a link between excessive daily use of cell phones and the risk of developing brain cancer. “The Bioinitiative Report”, published in 2007 and reprinted in 2014, analyzed over 1,800 studies establishing the effects of waves on health. According to the researchers who carried out this work, waves can have an impact, particularly on DNA, cancer, behavioral problems, autism and fertility.

French Professor Dominique Belpomme has alerted the public authorities to the risks connected to exposure to waves. It is worth recalling that all of these studies and theories are based on data from before 2010, a time when our exposure was 150 times lower than today. This is why it is recommended that earpieces ...
