Petition to the WHO/IARC: Move Radio Frequency Radiation from Class 2b to Class 1: Carcinogen

The attached Joint Statement will be delivered to WHO/IARC, the United Nations, & the White House preceding delivery of the class 1 petition (reference said petition here) to those same sources.  [The petition, "IARC, WHO:  Move Radio Frequency Radiation from Class 2b to Class 1 has nearly 5,000 signatures to date.  Please sign it if you have not already done so.]

We respectfully request your signature & organization's signature on a Joint Statement (notice attached) that has been endorsed by Oncologist Lennart Hardell.

Dr. Lennart Hardell highly recommends that each NGO & EMF Organization sign this Joint Statement to further the effort to get WHO/IARC to act on the scientific findings & classify RF/EMF radiation as a class 1 carcinogen.

Notice his endorsement here:

"In May 2011 IARC at WHO classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) as ‘possible human carcinogen’ Group 2B. The scientific evidence has been strengthened after that and using the so called Hill viewpoints, initially established in the 1960’s on smoking and lung cancer, RF-EMF may now be considered to cause human cancer. Thus, I endorse the initiative by many NGOs to ask IARC for re-evaluation of the cancer classification of RF-EMF. This is important not the least in view of most people exposed to RF-EMF."

All who wish to support this, please email back your organization's name & contact information & it will be added to the Joint Statement prior to it's delivery.

Again, thank you so much for your support in this worthwhile endeavor to protect the public, especially our precious children.

Sincerely,

We, the undersigned organizations, wholeheartedly support the scientific findings of a connection between cancer and RF/EMF radiation. For the sanctity of human life, especially our children, we respectfully demand that:

•WHO/IARC immediately acknowledge the scientific findings that RF/EMF radiation is a class 1 carcinogen, and conduct the appropriate scientific review within IARC to move it from it's current class 2B to class 1, known carcinogen.

•As is the policy of the WHO with Smoking/Cancer related issues, we ask that the WHO and IARC not permit any conflicts of interests amongst the scientists, doctors, policy making/administrating officials, or anyone serving in any other capacity determining classifications of carcinogenicity and policy decisions regarding EMFs and Cancer.

•Specifically we ask that any scientist, doctor, policy making/administrating official, or anyone serving in any capacity in WHO and IARC not have had in the past, have now, or in the future will receive any monetary compensation from the wireless industry or any company that produces products that emit or receive RF radiation or benefit from such products or companies - in the form of research grants, consulting fees or any other form of compensation including payments to any relative
of the scientist or colleague in close association.

•We ask that these conflicts be vehemently policed and monitored to maintain the integrity of the classifications, assure absolute transparency and ensure safety of the public.

“Glioma and acoustic neuroma are caused by RF-EMF emissions from wireless phones. According to the IARC Preamble (54), the classification should be group 1, i.e., “the agent is carcinogenic to humans,” and urgent revision of current guidelines for exposure is needed…Because of the widespread use of wireless technology, even a small risk increase would have serious public consequences.”
