Session 16 - The Non Ionizing radiation from Wireless technology: A 21 Century Revolution or a Global pollution and Health hazard

[CEST2019_00970] Electromagnetic radiation including G5 frequencies, health effects summary and policy recommendations
by Stein Y.

5G millimeter wave technology offers advantages: "smart" homes, "smart" cities and autonomic automobiles. The price: a rise of 30-100% in exposure to electromagnetic radiation near citizens' homes and higher exposure levels inside homes. Scientists have declared current exposure levels not relevant to protect against health effects.1 Pregnant women, babies and children should be protected from chronic exposure of public source in the private home against their will.

[CEST2019_00338] What can we do about Smartphone-addiction – or the dream of a wireless - free digital detox Island?
by Lercher P., Canna Michaelidou S., Prokakis K., Stavrou A., Carlo G.L., Mosgoeller W.

Since the introduction of wireless technology, digital devices penetrated all strata of the society. Even children use mobile phones regularly and excessively long. Excessive use may be associated with behavioral changes and symptoms of addiction. We analyzed the available literature and define the fields to respond to the association of "screen time" and altered social behavior. There is academic discussion whether the problematic use of smartphones really fulfils all criteria for the diagnosis "Addiction".

[CEST2019_00345] On the Mechanism of RF-EMF-Exposure associated DNA damage and long term risks
by Mosgoeller W., Kundi M.

Exposure to radio frequent electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) as emitted by mobile phones, can damage the cellular DNA. During the ATHEM in vitro research program we confirmed 1) genotoxic effects under some but not all conditions, 2) a latency period from start of exposure to first incidence, and 3) the role DNA repair. In human volunteers we found exposure associated genotoxic and cytotoxic effects in mucosal cells. The volunteers’ report on little or heavy mobile phone use and the findings in the individuals’ cell samples, point towards an accumulation of RF-EMF induced effects over time.

[CEST2019_00331] New Aspects on Prevention, International Policies and Actions for Public Health of Electro Magnetic Field (EMF) related Health Problems
by Lercher P.

New wireless technologies have been introduced to mankind without any certainty about potentially adverse effects, raising new challenges for medicine, public health and society. Meanwhile in almost every area of life, EMF exposure occurs. Various studies, empirical observations and patient reports clearly indicate interactions between EMF exposure and health problems. There is strong evidence that particularly long-term exposure to certain EMFs is a risk factor for diseases.

[CEST2019_00209] Telecommunication signals can cause biological effects: Our 20 years' studies in living systems
by Margaritis L.H.

The big bang of telecommunication applications that started a few decades ago has caused gradually an enormous increase of the electromagnetic pollution (smog) in the environment, the work place and home as well as the personal surrounding of every person. The daily use by people of wireless communication devices has increased exponentially, rising concerns regarding its potential health hazards.

[CEST2019_00048] Wireless Technology, the dangers beyond the sparkle
by Metsis T.

The paper presents briefly studies of various effects on people following the frenzy pace of the 21st century revealing various diseases, including cancer, autoimmune, autistic symptoms and other neurodegenerative syndromes as the international scientific society repeatedly confirms. It also deals with studies and health data in communities “keeping safe distance from electricity plus high-tech facilities” with different social connectivity that show to enjoy an impressive immunity record and exceptional health statistics compared to the former group.

[CEST2019_00057] Final results regarding Sprague-Dawley rats exposed from prenatal life until natural death to mobile phone radiofrequency field representative of a 1.8 GHz GSM base station environmental emission: report regarding mean body weight and heart and brai...
by Belpoggi F., Falcioni L., Vornoli A., Mandrioli D.

The Ramazzini Institute (RI) performed a life-span carcinogenic study on Sprague-Dawley rats to evaluate the carcinogenic effects of RFR in the situation of far field, reproducing the environmental exposure to RFR generated by 1.8 GHz GSM antenna of the radio base stations of mobile phone. Animals were exposed from prenatal life until natural death to a 1.8 GHz GSM far field of 0, 5, 25, 50 V/m with a whole-body exposure for 19 h/day. In 2018, we reported the final results regarding brain and heart tumors.

[CEST2019_00078] The adverse Health effects of non ionizing radiation on foetus and child: Is it a mythos or a scientifically evident global public health challenge
by Canna Michaelidou St.

Exposure to EMF/RF is continuous, multiple, exponentially growing, affecting entire population actively and passively. Children because of wireless-enabled devices are continuously exposed. Potential health Impacts include oxidative stress, carcinogenicity, developmental neurotoxicity, effects on DNA, on fertility, Hypersensitivity, Cognitive impairments in learning and memory etc, well documented in peer reviewed studies and occurring at levels well below ICNIRP/Rec1999/519/EC limits.
