|National Councillor Thomas Hardegger hands over a|
measuring device for mobile radiation to his colleague
Radiation is difficult for most people to grasp, because you cannot see, hear or smell it. This is one of the reasons why there is little awareness of the health risks of this radiation. National Councillor Thomas Hardegger is therefore of the opinion that measuring instruments will make a contribution to raising awareness because they make the invisible mobile radiation audible. This allows unrecognized radio transmitters such as mobile phone antennas, WLAN devices, cell phones and cordless phones to be located and suitable protective measures to be taken. It is important to Hardegger that the measuring instruments in the hands of his colleagues also trigger important questions and discussions about precautionary risk limitation.
Thomas Hardegger introduced the idea with the measuring devices to the "Dachverband Elektrosmog Schweiz und Liechtenstein", the umbrella organization for electrosmog Switzerland and Liechtenstein. The organization quickly found a solution for the implementation. There are now a large number of new devices available on loan, which today were handed to the members of the parliamentary group and other parliamentarians. After use, the devices can be passed on easily.
