APPLE Must Withdraw its iPhone 12 from the Entire European Market

APPLE must withdraw its iPhone 12 from the entire European market
By : Phonegate Team • 3 Oct 2023

The NGO Phonegate Alert and the first signatory organizations ask the national and European authorities to withdraw the iPhone 12 everywhere in Europe and that the current owners be compensated by Apple.

More than three years after its launch on the European market, the National Frequency Agency (ANFR) announced that Apple’s iPhone 12 5G (model A2403) exceeded the authorized limit of the specific absorption rate (SAR) by more than 40% (5.74 W/kg instead of 4 W/kg) and requested its temporary ban.

The Federal Mobility Group invited me to conduct a webinar about the health effects of radiofrequency radiation including 5G, the latest cellphone technology, on September 11, 2023.

The FMG is a chartered organization in the executive branch of the federal government of the U.S. It has representatives from more than 45 departments and agencies including the military. Its mission is to identify challenges in the deployment of secure mobile technology, develop solutions, and share best practices.

The webinar features the path-breaking work of the International Commission on the Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields (ICBE-EMF) to catalyze the widespread support within the scientific community for the adoption of stronger regulatory standards to protect humans and wildlife from the harm due to our ever-increasing exposure to wireless radiation.


Why Manmade Electromagnetic Fields are the Most Damaging

Dr. Dimitris Panagopoulos recently edited and coauthored the book "Electromagnetic Fields of Wireless Communications: Biological and Health Effects". The book reflects contributions from experts in biological and health effects of Radio Frequency (RF)/Microwave and Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) used in wireless communications (WC) and other technological applications.

Dr. Dimitris Panagopoulos 
It’s one of many fallacious arguments often used by those ignorant of the bioeffects of artificial electromagnetic fields (EMFs) – and those who don’t want the public to discover them.

They claim manmade EMFs (also called Electromagnetic Radiation or EMR) are harmless because they are not powerful enough to cause DNA breaks as does ionizing radiation such as from radon gas, x-rays orgamma radiation. Even the World Health Organization states that the only proven health effects of manmade non-ionizing radiation is heating from acute exposure of high levels of radiofrequencies (RF) or nerve and muscle stimulation and central nervous system cell excitability by domestic EMFs (50/60 Hz also called extremely low frequency - ELF) radiation.

Neurosurgeon Warns Patients about Dangers of Wireless Radiation

The wife of Hillel Baldwin , a McGill University-trained neurosurgeon, became seriously ill five years ago. Epidemiologist Samuel Milham referred the Arizona-based couple to a local expert in electromagnetic field (EMF) detection and mitigation, Paul Harding of Total EMF Solutions. His wife is doing much better since they rid their home of wireless devices emitting possibly carcinogenic microwave radiation , but she is still electrohypersensitive today.

Switzerland Blindly Trusts Apple

iPhone sales stop in France – What does it mean for Swiss users?
Switzerland blindly trusts Apple

While Apple in France had to stop selling an older iPhone model due to excessive radiation levels, in Switzerland they don't even know who would be responsible for such controls. Green National Councilor Marionna Schlatter is outraged.

The announcement from the French radiation regulatory authority sent waves far beyond the country's borders. Last week  it announced that the iPhone 12 had failed a check to ensure compliance with radiation limits. The so-called SAR value, which indicates how much radiation a device emits, was higher than permitted when there was direct physical contact or when the cell phone was in the pocket.

Radiation levels too high

In the worst case scenario, manufacturer Apple is threatened with a definitive ban on this smartphone model. Since there is an agreement with the EU, Switzerland would have to support such a measure.

This time Apple got it: According to a test by the Agence Nationale des Fréquences (ANFR) in France, the iPhone 12 emits too much radiation. The supervisory authority has now called on the US technology group to “use all available means to quickly remedy this situation”.

iPhone 15 overheating issue makes it 'too hot to touch', owners say

iPhone 15 overheating issue makes it 'too hot to touch', owners say
by Anthony Cuthbertson, independent.co.uk, 27 September 2023

Apple iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro Max both reportedly reaching high temperatures

The newly-released iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro Max are suffering from overheating issues, according to owners.

The flagship Apple phones are reportedly reaching temperatures as high as 47C, with some users claiming that the handsets become too hot to touch while not using a case.

“My iPhone 15 Pro Max is almost too hot to touch while fast charging right now,” 9to5Mac reporter Ian Zelbo wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“I thought people were overexaggerating but no this isn’t great. Interestingly, if I’m holding it, the left side rail and a little of the back on the left side is what is the hottest by far... lines up perfectly with the logic board.”

Phone Radiation: Letter by Prof. Tom Butler to the Editor, Irish Examiner

Excellent letter to the Editor on cell phone radiation by Prof. Tom Butler - Irish Examiner, 25 Sept. 2023.

Phone radiation

The article published in last Saturday’s business section on the Apple iPhone 12 is materially and factually incorrect. It states, regarding mobile phones: “According to the WHO, no adverse health effects have been established as being caused by them.”

In 2011, the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), classified radiofrequency radiation as a Group 2B carcinogen and “possibly carcinogenic to humans”. This classification was based on evidence to 2011 of an increased risk of glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer, associated with mobile phone use. Experimental and epidemiological research since 2011 corroborated and extended this finding and many scientists now believe, based on recent “clear evidence”, that radiofrequency radiation should be reclassified as a Group 2A probable or a Group 1 carcinogen along with cigarettes. It must be noted that the WHO unequivocally expresses
concerns about the health risks to children from exposure to radiofrequency radiation, including that emitted by mobile phones.

Switzerland: Smart Meter as a Major Health Hazard: Referendum Possible

Press release from the Swiss Association for Protection against Radiation (Verein Schutz vor Strahlung) concerning smart meters and the upcoming debate (week of 25 September) on this issue in the National Council of the Swiss Parliament.

Referendum possible
Smartmeter as a major health hazard

Schutz-vor-strahlung, Zurich, September 22, 2023 - translation by DeepL

With the Energy and Electricity Supply Act (also known as the "Mantelerlass"), the parliament wants to accelerate the introduction of renewable energies. The association Schutz-vor-Strahlung is considering the launch of a referendum against the law. This law provides for the obligation to install digital electricity meters and controls, so-called smart meters, in all private households.
In most cases, these devices are associated with health risks and are in conflict with data protection. Another goal in introducing smart meters, combined with flexible electricity tariffs, would be to bring about a change in behavior among the population. Any possibility of controlling household appliances from the outside is an invasion of privacy.

Next week, the National Council will finish debating the remaining differences in the Electricity “Mantelerlass” (revision of the Energy and Electricity Supply Act). The association Schutz-vor-Strahlung vehemently criticizes the planned bill. This is because it stipulates that the Federal Council must oblige all electricity producers and consumers to install a digital electricity meter and a control unit. These devices are smart meters, which, according to the decree, must be installed in every Swiss household.
