Message from the Newly-Created Association "Alerte Phonegate"

Phonegate* : First international actions of the association "Alerte Phonegate"
Press release, 23 March 2018

Our action has now taken form with the creation of an association governed by the law of 1901, called « Alerte Phonegate » and whose notice was published in the Journal officiel des associations et fondations d'entreprises (Official Journal for Associations and Business Foundations) of March 10, 2018.

The purpose of the new organization is to establish, both in France and Europe as well as internationally, a network of individuals, organizations and communities fighting for the recognition, protection and defense of the health of users of mobile phones within the framework, inter alia, of the health and industrial scandal called “Phonegate”.

The constitutive General Assembly has appointed as Founding President, Dr Marc Arazi, who is proud of this vote of confidence, “...thanks to the many qualified individuals and organizations who have already agreed to actively participate in the important work ahead to alert international institutions and propose appropriate measures to protect the health of more than 6 billion mobile phone users.”

While the first two interventions of Alerte Phonegate are intended for the United States, in reality they concern all of us, so much are public health issues cross-linked today.

The first concerns the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), located in Washington DC (USA), which on March 22, 2018, held an important public meeting. With our U.S. partner, the Environmental Health Trust, we have written to the Chairman of the FCC, Mr. Ajit Pai, to share with him in detail the results of the tests conducted by the National Frequencies Agency (ANFR) and the report of the National Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES) published in July 2016.

With the President of the EHT, Dr. Devra Davis, we are asking the FCC to urgently establish new measurement protocols for thresholds of exposure to radiofrequency radiation emitted by mobile phones in contact with the body. We hope to convince the U.S. agency to use its effective international influence to send a strong signal to both regulators and manufacturers. It is high time to put an end to the “Far West” which prevails to the detriment of the health of mobile phone users.

The second action is intended for the scientific authors of the report on exposure to the radiofrequency radiation of mobile phones on rats and mice published on February 2, 2018 by the U.S. National Toxicology Program. We have already submitted our comments for the Peer Review. Dr. Marc Arazi will be in Durham, North Carolina on March 27 to comment in person on his analysis of the results and especially on some of the remarks of one of the authors of the study, John Bucher. Dr Annie J. Sasco, physician and epidemiologist, former Director of the Unit of Epidemiology for Cancer Prevention at the International Agency for Research on Cancer - World Health Organization (IARC-WHO) will also be there and present in person her comments.
