Selected Quotations from Scientists Who Signed the International EMF Scientist Appeal

We asked some experts to provide us with a statement in response to the following question:
“What do you want the world to know about the importance of this appeal?”

“It is immoral that the regulatory standards electromagnetic fields (EMF) used in cellular communication are inadequate and pose a serious health risk. The amount of harm from radio frequency EMF exposure to the brain is inestimable.Children are at higher risk, than professional workers.’

Professor Yury Grigoryev, MD, Chairman of Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection; Member, International Advisory Committee for the WHO "EMF and Health" Program. Moscow, Russia.

Les effets nocifs des champs électromagnétiques, quelle que soit leur fréquence, sont maintenant scientifiquement établis. Les femmes enceintes (le fœtus) et les enfants et adolescents sont particulièrement vulnérables. L’OMS a reconnu les effets possiblement cancérigènes des champs électromagnétiques; cette action doit être prolongée par la reconnaissance de l’électrohypersensibilité comme affection à part entière entrant dans le cadre nosologique de l’intolérance environnementale idiopathique qu’elle a individualisé. C’est ce que propose le colloque international organisé le 18 mai à l’Académie Royale de Médecine de Belgique.

The harmful effects of electromagnetic fields, regardless of their frequencies, are now scientifically settled. Pregnant women (the fetus) and children and adolescents are particularly vulnerable. WHO has recognized the possibly carcinogenic effects of electromagnetic fields; its policy program should now be urgently extended to the recognition of electrohypersensitivity as a full affection entering the nosologic framework of Idiopathic Environmental Intolerance. This is what the international congress held on the 18th of May, 2015 at the Royal Belgian Academy of Medicine proposes.

“Active mobile phone handsets have a dramatic impact on the behavior of honeybees by inducing the worker piping signal, triggering the swarming process, the sign of a disturbed bee colony. Signals from mobile phones and masts (i.e., cell towers) could also be contributing to the decline of honeybees around the world. I am calling on the international scientific community for more research in this field and for protection of this crucial pollinator."
