Presentati i risultati della ricerca del National Toxicology Program (USA): si evidenziano modifiche al DNA

... 'seconde' anticipazioni dei risultati del più grande e costoso progetto di ricerca finanziato sulla evidenzi azione degli effetti delle RF sulla salute, sono stati presentati giorni fa ad un congresso scientifico.

La sperimentazione è stata eseguita su topi e ratti ed, in sintesi, sono stati accertati dei danni cromosomici e danni al DNA ... e essi concludono che:  " la esposizione a RF ha il potenziale per indurre danni misurabili del DNA sotto certe condizioni di esposizione ..." 

I lavori saranno pubblicati completamente ad inizi 2018. Il progetto era stato richiesto e finanziato da FDA (Ministero per Alimentazione e Medicina americano) nel 1999.

Si va verso una sempre maggiore chiarezza !
Ora WHO cambierà la propria impostazione ?  oppure ICNIRP (che continua a spergiurare che gli effetti sono solo quelli termici) riuscirà a tenere bloccato il WHO ?!

Scientists from the National Toxicology Program presented their data on the genotoxicity of cell phone radiation in rats and mice at the annual meeting of the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society held in Raleigh, North Carolina from September 9-13, 2017.

Male and female rats and mice were exposed to 2G cell phone radiation, either CDMA or GSM, for 18 hours per day in 10 minute intervals. The rats were exposed to cell phone radiation at 1.5, 3, or 6 W/kg specific absorption rate (SAR) for 19 weeks from gestation day 5. The mice were exposed to radiation at 2.5, 5, or 10 W/kg SAR for 13 weeks from postnatal day 5.

DNA damage was assessed in three brain regions, in liver cells and in blood leukocytes using the comet assay. Chromosomal damage was assessed in peripheral blood erythrocytes using the micronucleus assay. 

DNA damage was significantly increased:

  • in the frontal cortex of male mice from either CDMA or GSM cell phone radiation exposure, 
  • in peripheral leukocytes of female mice from CDMA exposure, and
  • in the hippocampus of male rats from CDMA exposure.
There were no significant increases in micronucleated red blood cells in rats or mice. 

The authors concluded that, "exposure to RFR [radio frequency radiation] has the potential to induce measurable DNA damage under certain exposure conditions."

The NTP is scheduled to publish a complete report about its cell phone radiation studies in early 2018. The FDA called for this research in 1999.

Here is the abstract for this presentation.

Cosa dicono le società delle telefonia e le assicurazioni sui rischi associati allo utilizzo delle radiofrequenze ?

Vi allego un documento molto interessante ed utile:

ci sono le dichiarazioni che alcune società della telefonia e non, come anche quelle assicurative internazionali, che dicono ai propri investitori sui pericoli (per loro ovviamente, ovvero per la redditività delle loro azioni) provenienti dallo esito negativo di sentenze della magistratura e dalla futura evidenzi azione scientifica degli effetti delle radiofrequenze sulla salute umana.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/x2s6drw2mz13q2t/Telecom-10-K-Liability-and-Insurance-Companies-Slides-EHT-6-2016.pdf?dl=0



si dice :

... nessuna assicurazione che futuri studi correlino i telefoni agli effetti sulla salute
...se le posizioni di WHO subiranno delle modifiche sono prevedibili modiche delle legislazioni nazionali
...se la sensazione di rischio sarà sostanziato ...
... noi non assicuriamo le aziende per questi rischi ...  (diverse le grandi cmpagnie di assicurazioni che ribadiscono la loro decisione di stare lontano dalla telefonia ! )
...siamo impegnati in diversi procedimenti giudiziali ...
... con il forte incremento della esposizione alle RF una relazione con la salute è stato stabilito per cui si apre le porte a rivendizaioni legali con conseguenti forti perdite ...

Associazione USA su Tumore al Cervello condanna la 5G

L'associazione californiana sul Tumore al Cervello ha condannato la approvazione di una legge che implementa la telefonia 5G.

Ricorda anche come le votazioni nel parlamento californiano hanno dimostrato uno scarso vantaggio numerico e molti astenuti.

In particolare sostiene il dubbio della incongruità secondo cui i vigili del fuoco hanno ottenuto che lo loro stazioni non abbiano ripetitori di telefonia, mentre si accetta che chi abita di fronte ad una stazione dei vigili del fuoco può avere una bella antenna ?!





The Calif. Brain Tumor Assn. condemned passage of a bill Sept. 14 that allows proliferation of cell towers for the new 4G and 5G cellphone transmitting devices.
The Calif. Assembly voted 46-16 with 17 abstentions and the Senate voted 22-10 with 18 abstentions for a bill that forces local communities to lease their land to telecom companies for the new generation of cell towers that are needed every 5-10 houses according to some estimates. It now goes before Gov. Jerry Brown who could veto or not veto it.

CBTA said, "The burning question Gov. Brown should be asking himself as he makes a decision that could change California forever is this: If we exempt fire stations to protect firefighters, why are we allowing cell towers throughout neighborhoods, in front of preschools, schools, hidden in church steeples, on lampposts, utility poles and on most public buildings if these are too dangerous for fire stations?"
Ellie Marks
Ellen Marks, Executive Director, California Brain Tumor Association
CBTA noted that the League of California Cities said the bill “unnecessarily and unconstitutionally strips local authority over public property and shuts out public input and local discretion by eliminating consideration of the aesthetic and environmental impacts of ‘small cells.’”
Senator Ben HuesoSenator Ben Hueso
The bill, the League said, represents “a major shift in telecommunications policy and law by requiring local governments to lease out the public’s property, cap how much cities can lease this space out for, eliminate the ability for cities to negotiate public benefits, the public’s input and full discretionary review in all communities of the state except for areas in coastal zones and historic districts, for the installation of “small cell” wireless equipment.”
Equipment Is Not “Small”
It further said, “Despite the wireless industry’s claim that the equipment would be ‘small’ in their attempt to justify this special permitting and price arrangement solely for their industry, the bill would allow for antennas as large as six cubic feet, equipment boxes totaling 35 cubic feet (larger than previous bill version of 21 cubic feet), with no size or quantity limitations for the following equipment: electric meters, pedestals, concealment elements, demarcation boxes, grounding equipment, power transfer switches, and cutoff switches.”
CBTA said 300 state cities have expressed strong opposition to SB 649, a bill designed to “fast track” the permitting of wireless and small cell telecommunications facilities in local communities. Mayors of six of California's largest cities have sent the AT&T-initiated bill’s sponsor, Senator Ben Hueso, a letter opposing the measure, said CBTA.
Said CBTA: “In spite of the telecom industry and SB 649’s sponsors selling this bill to underserved communities as a way to provide them the needed access to better wireless capabilities, The Greenlining Institute  http://greenlining.org has come out in opposition stating, “Under SB 649, it is likely that providers will focus any service improvements on high-income areas. SB 649 in no way guarantees that low-income communities and communities of color will gain increased access to advanced communications services.”
CBTA Cites Studies
CBTA, headed by executive director Ellen Marks, issued a press release that cited several studies pointing to the dangers of pulsed, electro-magnetic radiation.
DNA damage in those living close to a cell tower was documented in a new study by Electromagnetic Biol Med. 2017 Aug 4:1-11: “Impact of radiofrequency radiation on DNA damage and antioxidants in peripheral blood lymphocytes of humans residing in the vicinity of mobile phone base stations.”

 “All of the recorded radiofrequency radiation (RFR) power density values in this study were well below the Federal Communication Commission’s maximum permissible exposure limits in the U.S. for the general population,” said Joel Moskowitz, Ph.D., University of Calif. Berkeley School of Public Health.
The study, said CBTA, follows on the heels of the major $25 million study recently released by the U.S. National Toxicology Program of the National Institutes of Health that found increased incidences of brain cancer, malignant tumors of the heart and DNA damage in laboratory animals from exposure levels the FCC considers "safe.”
The American Cancer Society’s statement on the significance of this new study was cited: “The NTP report linking radiofrequency radiation (RFR) to two types of cancer marks a paradigm shift in our understanding of radiation and cancer risk. The findings are unexpected; we wouldn’t reasonably expect non-ionizing radiation to cause these tumors.” 
Firefighters Exempted on “Health Grounds"
Firefighters received an exemption in SB 649 based upon potential harm to firefighters as evidenced by a 17-year history, beginning in 2000, when a small fire dept. sued Nextel for health damages related to neurological impairment after towers were activated next to their stations.
The Int’l Assn. of Firefighters in 2004 called for an extensive study of the effects that cell towers have on those in firehouses. Link:  health grounds. 
INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF FIRE FIGHTERS
DIVISION OF OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH, SAFETY AND MEDICINE 
Position on the Health Effects from Radio Frequency/Microwave (RF/MW) Radiation in Fire Department Facilities from Base Stations for Antennas and Towers for the Conduction of Cell Phone Transmissions 
The International Association of Fire Fighters’ position on locating cell towers commercial wireless infrastructure on fire department facilities, as adopted by its membership in August 2004 (1), is that the IAFF oppose the use of fire stations as base stations for towers and/or antennas for the conduction of cell phone transmissions until a study with the highest scientific merit and integrity on health effects of exposure to low-intensity RF/MW radiation is conducted and it is proven that such sitings are not hazardous to the health of our members.
Study Showed Health Effects
Medical writer Susan Foster described the symptoms suffered by these firefighters, some beginning the day the tower was activated just sevden feet from their living quarters. 
The men suffered from headache, insomnia, brain fog, getting lost in the same town they grew up in, sometimes forgetting protocol in routine medical procedures, mood swings and infertility.
In 2004 a SPECT brain pilot study was conducted on California firefighters who had lived in the shadow of a tower for over five years. SPECT is an imaging process that uncovers brain patterns. 
The study, conducted by Gunnar Heuser, MD, PhD, found brain abnormalities in all six men, including delayed reaction time, lack of impulse control, and cognitive impairment.
IAFF Demanded Moratorium
As a result, Resolution 15, a collaborative expert/firefighter effort calling for further study and a moratorium on placing cell towers on fire stations throughout the US and Canada, was passed by the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) in Boston in 2004 by 80 percent. Cell tower health concerns were posted on the IAFF website.

Said CBTA: “Through an exemption in the bill, California legislators accept the need to protect the health of firefighters, some of whom have measurable brain abnormalities following years of exposure to cell towers near their stations.  SB 649 is in effect admitting that the devices that will be located in close proximity to homes and schools are likely dangerous. “
Calif. Finance Dept. Opposes Bill
The Calif. State Department of Finance has publicly declared opposition to the bill, says CBTA, quoting the Dept.
 “While the extent of the potential mandate is unknown, Finance believes it can easily approach $1 million per year. Finance opposes this bill. While statewide uniform rules can help the expansion of new technologies, this bill goes too far by usurping city and county zoning authority for infrastructure development, and it potentially imposes reimbursable, state-mandated costs on cities and counties.”

Appello per una moratoria della installazione delle antenne 5G

E' stato predisposto un testo contenente un appello alla Comunità Europea ed alle altre istituzioni internazionali e nazionali , in più lingue tra cui l'italiano,  e firmato da oltre 180 scienziati e ricercatori italiani ed internazionali.

qui il link al documento   


L'obiettivo è chiedere un fermo dei programmi di avvio della 5G - con la installazione di un numero spropositato di NUOVE antenne che si SOMMANO  a tutte quelle esistenti, ma anche a quelle wifi - ..., senza aver verificato la effettiva pericolosità di questo ulteriore e massiccio incremento del livello di EMF che ci circonda.

5G: negli USA triplicheranno le antenne

A detta del presidente della CTIA (praticamente la Confindustria della telefonia) ha precisato che la industria del wireless triplicherà il numero di stazioni radio base nei prossimi 5 anni per implementare il 5G !




The CTIA President and former FCC member, Meredith Atwell Baker, claimed In an interview that the wireless industry will triple the number of cell towers in the US in the next few years to expedite 5G deployment, from 150,000 to 450,000 cell towers:


"It will start rolling out next year, but we'll see more commercial rollouts in 2020. But that depends on getting the rules right for these networks. We're talking about cell sites the size of pizza boxes rather than 200-foot-tall towers. The industry in the past decade has rolled out 150,000 towers, and we'll be looking to roll out 300,000 in the next few years. What we're looking for is changes in infrastructure so we can roll this out faster and at an affordable cost."

Chief wireless lobbyist on the global race to 5G

Kim Hart, Axios, 9/11/2017

Mobile World Congress Americas kicks off today in San Francisco, and on the docket is plenty of talk about 5G technology and how it will power the Internet of Things, mobile entertainment and connected cars. Ahead of the show, Axios caught up with Meredith Attwell Baker, former Commerce Department official and FCC Commissioner who is now the wireless industry's chief lobbyist in Washington.
Why it matters: The wireless industry can't seem to get it's hands on enough airwaves to power networks to handle demand by smartphone-obsessed consumers. Wireless streaming and other content-rich applications are only increasing the competition for bandwidth. 5G networks take advantage of high-frequency airwaves that don't travel as far, raising the need for twice as many cell sites to power them.
Highlights from our chat:
5G networks will be 100 times faster with no lag time: "This is the network where you will see driverless cars, remote surgery and innovative education. In terms of capital spending, our members (carriers) are ready to spend $275 billion to invest in this."
Timing of 5G network rollouts: "It will start rolling out next year, but we'll see more commercial rollouts in 2020. But that depends on getting the rules right for these networks. We're talking about cell sites the size of pizza boxes rather than 200-foot-tall towers. The industry in the past decade has rolled out 150,000 towers, and we'll be looking to roll out 300,000 in the next few years. What we're looking for is changes in infrastructure so we can roll this out faster and at an affordable cost."
International threats to U.S. leadership: "It's certainly a global race to 5G. Countries have recognized that when you are first, that gives you the advantage in innovation and investment and jobs. China is conducting 100 trials this year. South Korea and Japan are rolling out quite rapidly. We did not win the race to 3G, but we did to 4G. And that's why three-quarters of app companies are based in the U.S. So it does make a difference."

How 5G can improve rural broadband coverage: "We'll see fixed 5G wireless first. That will bring a lot of broadband to rural areas that don't have it currently."
What's next in the spectrum pipeline: "There's no pipeline. We are looking for low-band, mid-band and high-band opportunities. We need to look for win-win scenarios with government spectrum. We are encouraged to see the administration has spectrum in its budget and plans."
What about unlicensed spectrum, such as white space proposals?: "When it comes to spectrum, I talk about licensed, unlicensed and shared. To meet America's growing needs we're going to need all of it."
