(Krakow, Poland) At the Third International Forum on Protection from Electromagnetic Environmental Pollution [24 September 2018] three scientists speaking the city’s Hall of Sessions told the international audience of the threat posed by modern microwave based technology to human life amide and environment of political and corporate corruption. Krakow remains the only municipality on the planet to protect it’s citizens from the dangers of electromagnetic radiation pollution.
Following is an extract from the article on the presentation by Prof. Olle Johansson, neuroscientist, formerly of the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden:
Due in large part to the relentless work of Johansson and the Swedish Association for the ElectroSensitive, Sweden is the only country in the world to recognize electrosensitivity as a functional impairment.
According to Johansson, “In Sweden, impairments are viewed from the point of the environment. No human being is in itself impaired, there are instead shortcomings in the environment that cause the impairment (as the lack of ramps for the person in a wheelchair or rooms electrosanitized for the person with electro-hypersensitivity). This environment-related impairment view, furthermore, means that even though one does not have a scientifically-based complete explanation for the impairment electrohypersensitivity, and in contrast to disagreements in the scientific society, the person with electrohypersensitivity shall always be met in a respectful way and with all necessary support with the goal to eliminate the impairment. This implies that the person with electrohypersensitivity shall have the opportunity to live and work in an electrosanitized environment.”
Johansson’s appearance on the podium at Krakow added a sense of gravitas to the proceedings. He is the only speaker to be invited to address the Forum for a second time. “From the current vast scientific literature, it is obvious we must proceed with caution before immersing the citizens in more and more artificial electromagnetic fields,” he said, “We may, as a matter of fact, already be gravely endangering our current as well as coming generations. To not act today, may prove a disaster tomorrow, and such lack of action may again result in the classical ‘late lessons from early warnings’.“
“I, as a scientist, am not here to promote convenience or economic growth, but only ‘to serve and protect’ human health, as well as to directly protect other animals, plants and bacteria.”
He listed the following lessons from science:
• Use of cell phones decrease the semen quality in men by decreasing the sperm count,
motility, viability, and normal morphology. The decrease in sperm parameters was
dependent on the duration of daily exposure to cell phones and independent of the initial
• A progressive decrease in the number of newborns per diem was observed, which
ended in irreversible infertility.
• Exposure of pregnant women to mobile phone significantly
increase fetal and neonatal heart rate, and significantly decreased the cardiac output.
• After 45 min of exposure to pulsed 2450 MHz micro-waves (2 microseconds pulses,
500 pps, 1 mW/cm2, average whole body SAR 0.6 W/kg), rats showed retarded
learning while performing in the radial-arm maze to obtain food rewards, indicating a
deficit in spatial “working memory” function. … These data indicate that both cholinergic
and endogenous opioid neurotransmitter systems in the brain are involved in the
microwave-induced spatial memory deficit.
• The present findings suggest that Wi-Fi exposure may exert gender-related alterations
on neural activity associated with the amount of attentional resources engaged during a
linguistic test adjusted to induce working memory.
• EMFs disturb immune function through stimulation of various allergic and inflammatory
responses, as well as effects on tissue repair processes. Such disturbances increase
the risks for various diseases, including cancer.
Response to electromagnetic radiation is not only affecting human beings. All of nature is affected. ”These responses occur very soon after exposure, strongly suggesting that they are the direct consequence of application of radiofrequency fields and their similarities to wound responses strongly suggests that this radiation is perceived by plants as an injurious stimulus,” said Johansson.”Even bacteria are affected leading to resistance to antibiotics, he said, adding, ”These responses occur very soon after exposure, strongly suggesting that they are the direct consequence of application of radiofrequency fields and their similarities to wound responses strongly suggests that this radiation is perceived by plants as an injurious stimulus.”
The solution to the proliferation is, according to Johansson, based on The London Resolution, published by the science journal Elsevier in 2009. “Based on the (UN) Precautionary Principle, children and vulnerable groups (such as people with epilepsy and heart conditions) should not be exposed to a risk of harm”, Said Johansson, “Thus we propose that children under 16 should use mobile phones and cordless phones for emergency calls only. No Wi-fi, WiMax or other forms of wireless networking are placed in homes, schools or public areas or promoted for use thereof.”
