Following is an extract from the article on the presentation by Dr. Marc Arazi, President, Phonegate Alert Association, France.
Dr. Marc Arazi is a medical doctor and radiation health activist. His 2016 enquiries and subsequent legal action led to the release of French government documents in 2017 which list cell phones that generate radiation levels in excess of legal thresholds. The radiation levels noted by the government in 2015 revealed that radiation levels from nine out of 10 cell phone manufacturers were as much as three times statutory guidelines.
In a peer review of the U.S. National Toxicology Program’s draft cancer report published in May 2016 Arazi noted:
In July 2016, the French National Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES) published an important report entitled, “Exposure to Radiofrequencies and Child Health”. This report brought to light information hitherto unknown to the public, namely that 9 out of 10 mobile phones tested in 2015 by the French National Frequencies Agency (ANFR) in contact with the body showed a SAR level higher than 2W/kg and one out of 4, a SAR level higher than 4 W/kg…
In June 2017, following several legal actions by Arazi and others, the ANFR was forced to publish preliminary partial results of tests on 379 mobile phones selected from stores between 2012 and 2016. These results reveal that leading mobile phones sold in France as well as Europe exceed the regulatory thresholds for the Standard Absorption Rate (SAR) for the trunk and extremities of the
human body valid within Europe.
Six months ago in a press release, Dr. Arazi explained, “On March 8, 2018, the Agency revealed on the same DATA site the complete reports (but not the original ones) of 442 cell phones tested until 2017. These results show that the leading mobile phones sold in France as well as Europe exceed the regulatory thresholds for the SAR trunk and extremities valid within Europe. All this was made possible by inappropriate regulation that allowed mobile phones to be tested at a distance of 15 to 25 mm from the skin.”
The resultant health scandal was dubbed PhoneGate by French journalist Pierre Le Hir of Le Monde and resulted in the establishment of the the non-governmental organization called PhoneGate Alert in March of this year. Arazi is also a co-founder of a French commercial company which provides financial services to healthcare professionals.
To view Araziʼs full presentation visit:
Just why a citizen, a professional in the field of medicine should find it difficult to obtain information about health-related issues from his government remains problematical. There can only be one reason why a government would withhold information. France, like most other governments and the United Nations, has another agenda. That agenda is formulated by corporations pursuing profit and governments failing to implement the socalled Precautionary Principle which calls for discretion by policy-makers to justify difficult decisions relating to electromagnetic radiation to control the population.
There is a catch in Europe’s approach to the Precautionary Principle. According to the Journal of the European Union there are two very big “IFs. “The precautionary principle is detailed in Article 191 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). It relates to an approach to risk management whereby if there is the possibility that a given policy or action might cause harm to the public or the environment and if there is still no scientific consensus on the issue, the policy or action in question should not be pursued. Once more scientific information becomes available, the situation should be reviewed.”
Against what Arazi calls “An industrial scandal on a planetary scale”, France’s hesitation to make information available to Arazi and his colleagues at Alerte PhoneGate could be interpreted as being cautious because there “is still no scientific consensus” about the dangers of electromagnetic radiation from cell phones in particular. In addition to the failure to implement the Precautionary Principle in France, there is a global push for wireless technology. While IARC is holding the line against declaring wireless technology dangerous to human beings it is acting as an agency of the World Health Organization, which, in turn is a subsidiary of the United Nations – a voluntary, unelected body founded under the influence of Rockefeller family interests.
Simultaneously, the United Nations, through it’s subsidiary agency, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) is promoting the rollout of wireless technology, including AI and 5G, around the world. Logically, the U.N. is delaying acceptance of wireless dangers while promoting its deployment.
The U.N’s International Telecommunications Union claims that “ consumer demands are shaping the development of mobile broadband services.’ The ITU has created an international specification called IMT-2020, noting that 5G trials and pre-commercial activities already underway.
The IMT standard is intended to :
• “transport a huge amount of data much faster, reliably connecting an extremely large
number of devices and processing very high volumes of data with minimal delay 5G is
expected to connect people, things, data, applications, transport systems and cities in
smart networked communication environments;
• “5G is expected to support applications such as smart homes and buildings, smart
cities, 3D video, work and play in the cloud, remote medical surgery, virtual and
augmented reality, and massive machine-to-machine communications for industry
automation and self-driving cars. 3G and 4G networks currently face challenges in
supporting these services.
• Due to its sheer scale and scope, “5G is expected to accelerate the achievement of all
17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), from affordable and clean energy to zero
A second difficulty facing Arazi and PhoneGate Alert is the issue of corporate lobbying of politicians and governmental bodies. According to the Sunday Times, a company operating in both France and Ireland, for example, Cube Infrastructure Managers (CIM) fronted by Granahan McCourt was revealed to be the host of a dinner meeting with Ireland’s Minister for Communications and four of his officials in Manhattan’s Club 21.
The friendly relationship between the minister and Granahan McCourt led to his resignation 11 October.
“We are assembling a team of specialized lawyers and jurists to identify the judicial means to launch legal actions on a large scale in France, Europe and internationally,”explained Arazi. “in order to force the public authorities to act. We are also launching group actions to enable each affected consumer to be heard and have his or her damages remedied.
Arazi claims that there are 300 million world-wide persons who are victims to radiation overexposure from smartphone radiation. “We are one of the rare associations to fight, in a free and independent way, with no financial or corporate interests, to ensure the defense of citizens and not to cede to the power of big multinationals which decide that they can make the rules and favor the dominance of their devices over our health and that of our children – and this without being accountable to anyone, protected by regulations made to measure.”
In August of this year PhoneGate called for the withdrawal of most cell phones on the market. PhoneGate said, “The recall of more than 250 of the best-selling mobile phone models on the French market, which must either be withdrawn from the market by a procedure of free exchange or their software or hardware must be updated by the manufacturer.” Should governments agree it would dramatic economic consequences on a global scale.
