- Crisis deepens at PHE, AGNIR, the ICNIRP and the WHO
The small clique of regulators at PHE, AGNIR,ICNIRP and the WHO is becoming
increasingly discredited scientifically. They still try to cling to
their fringe minority viewpoint that the only microwave, radio and ELF exposure is heating.
This may maximise the wireless industry’s profits,
but it is destroying life – human, animal and plant.
This Newsletter brings further news of the
continued failure of these groups to fulfil their role
in safeguarding the public.
- PHE’s and AGNIR’s “inaccurate” report: failure to safeguard the public
PHE’s AGNIR 2012 report (not peer-reviewed)
was discredited by a comprehensive peer reviewed
study in 2016 pointing out its many
inaccuracies. PHE and the UK government now
appear liable for giving unsafe advice based on
this invalidated report. Critics argue that the AGNIR 2012 report must be retracted.
- Conflict of interests by PHE, AGNIR and ICNIRP: time to replace WHO RF group
The fact that some members of PHE are also
members of AGNIR and WHO’s ICNIRP raises
serious issues of conflict of interests, where this
small clique, with a single and minority viewpoint,
both sets and also evaluates and then approves
ICNIRP’s heating limits.
- See inside for a new WHO group composed of majority experts.
- Majority international experts confront minority WHO and ICNIRP clique
Leading international experts have written to the
United Nations and the WHO requesting up-todate
and much higher scientific standards to
safeguard public health and counterbalance
wireless industry pressures. Some experts met
WHO officials in Geneva on March 3 2017.
- To the ‘World Harm Organization’:
“You have failed us utterly”
See inside for news of Olga Sheean’s powerful
challenge to Margaret Chan, the director-general
of the WHO, and Emilie van Deventer, the leader
of the WHO’s EMF Project. She asks, for
instance: “Are you committed to forever debating
the science, siding with industry and postponing
action, or are you committed to protecting our
health? How can we trust an organization that
rejects the science, dismisses the epidemic of
microwave sickness, and supports the very
industry that’s causing such widespread harm?”
And some good news!
- There has been excellent TV and media
reports on EHS people in the UK (see inside).
- UK courts, unlike the UK government, have
been recognising more and more people with EHS, even if under different names.
- More advanced scientific nations are taking action. Paris has rejected ICNIRP’s cooking
limits, reducing its limit to 5 V/m. Cyprus has banned WiFi from kindergartens, like France,
and halted its use in elementary schools.
