"Children and Mobile Phones: The Health of the Following Generations is in Danger": Russian National Committee of Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection - 2008 Report

Please read and share widely this extract from the 2008 report.

"The members of the Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection emphasize ultimate urgency to defend children’s health from the influence of the EMF of the mobile communication systems. We appeal to the government authorities, to the entire society to pay closest attention to this coming threat and to take adequate measures in order to prevent negative consequences to the future generation’s health."

Russian National Committee of Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection - 2008 report 

Russian National Committee of Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (RNCNIRP) have accepted an important decision on the theme “mobile communication and children`s health” (the text of the decision is enclosed).  The members of the committee give a prediction of possible illnesses, the possibility of which can be high for children, using modern mobile phones.  This decision is based on the results of fundamental researches of biological influence of electromagnetic field, which has been held in Russia during the 40 years and considers the modern data. RNCNIRP considers that the manufacturers should inform the customers about the possible risk for children`s health from using the mobile phone. The point of view of the RNCNIRP is supported by the members of the members of Committees of health protection of both chambers of Russian Parliament.

The members  of RCNIRP  conduct  continuous  activity in  the  area  of mobile  telecommunication  EMF safety.

New Science Reveals Young Brains Deranged by Cellphone Radiation Exposure

Cellphones driving modern humans to the brink of insanity? New science reveals young brains DERANGED by cellphone radiation exposure
by Mike Adamsnaturalnews.com, 15 December 2017

(Natural News) It’s fairly obvious to most intelligent people that modern society is going insane. It’s especially true among today’s hyper-connected youth who seem to be truly deranged and mentally ill, hyperventilating over every issue imaginable such as “net neutrality” or the election of Donald Trump. The lunacy of modern society has never been more extreme, and many of us who observe all this are wondering is there a common cause behind the insanity?

As it turns out, the mass poisoning of human brains with cellphone radiation has only been going on for a generation or so. It may be the common cause behind the insanity, and California health authorities have just confirmed this possibility by issuing new warnings about the adverse brain effects of cellphone radiation exposure.

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- A vast majority (67 percent) of U.S. parents of 5-to-18-year-olds describe their children as addicted to electronic devices. That's according to a new national survey conducted in October by GBA Strategies and unGlue, the uniquely collaborative screen-time management solution for parents and kids. The survey examines parents' experiences managing their families' screen time. The data, gleaned through interviews with 394 parents nationwide, sheds light on both children's screen-time habits and parental attitudes toward those habits.

"This data tells a story not just about the excessive screen time kids are being exposed to, but the toll that improperly managed screen time can take on kids and families," says Alon Shwartz, co-founder of unGlue. "The study confirms the conclusion many of us have come to anecdotally about the challenges parents face trying to foster participation in non-screen-related activities and carve out quality family time in their homes."

SHREWSBURY --- The general public is aware of the well documented dangers of tobacco products, drugs, and alcohol, but what about cell phones? That was the central question at the screening and discussion of the documentary, “Generation Zapped,” at the Shrewsbury Public Library on Thursday, December 7. The event was held by Wireless Education, a non-profit dedicated to providing information to parents and consumers so they can make conscious decisions about how they use WiFi technology.

The event was led by Wireless Education Communications Director Cece Doucette. Before taking on her current role, Doucette was the president of the Ashland Education Foundation as well as a grant coordinator for Ashland Public Schools.

“I personally ran seven campaigns to get technology into our schools,” said Doucette.

Measurements of Radiofrequency Radiation with a Body-Borne Exposimeter in Swedish Schools with Wi-Fi

Lena K. Hedendahl, Michael Carlberg, Tarmo Koppel, Lennart Hardell. Measurements of Radiofrequency Radiation with a Body-Borne Exposimeter in Swedish Schools with Wi-Fi. Front. Public Health, 20 November 2017 | https://doi.org/10.3389/fpubh.2017.00279

Introduction: Wireless access to the Internet is now commonly used in schools. Many schools give each student their own laptop and utilize the laptops and wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) connection for educational purposes. Most children also bring their own mobile phones to school. Since children are obliged by law to attend school, a safe environment is important. Lately, it has been discussed if radiofrequency (RF) radiation can have long-term adverse effects on children’s health.

  • The California Department of Health released advice to minimize cell phone radiation exposure 
  • Radiation from the devices has been linked to cancer and infertility
  • Children's developing brains may be particularly vulnerable
  • Exposure risks are highest when cell phones have fewer bars of service or are downloading or streaming media



The California Department of Health warned that people need to keep their cell phones several feet away from them to reduce radiation exposure and health risks.

California released guidance for reducing exposure to cell phone radiation on Thursday, amid mounting evidence that cell phone use may be linked to cancer, attention, mental health and reproductive health issues.

California's New Cell Phone Warnings Make National News

California's new cell phone warnings make national news tonight

Tonight CBS Evening News will run a story on California's new cell phone warnings.

Although California's new cell phone warnings underplay the state of the science, many people consider this action by the largest state public health department to be a significant development in response to the efforts of wireless safety advocates to pressure our government to notify the public about the health risks from exposure to cell phone radiation.

The Division of Environmental and Occupational Disease Control in CDPH originally drafted these warnings in 2009, but despite the consensus of the Division to publish the warnings that year, CDPH refused to release them. The Division updated the warnings several times over the next eight years, but CDPH continued to suppress them until now.

[Press release] Phonegate : Warnings from the California Department of Public Health

[Press release] Phonegate: Warnings from the California Department of Public Health
by Marc Arazi, arazi.fr, 15 December 2017

Another fight for transparency of the health risks associated with the use of the cell phone has been waged since 2009 on the other side of the Atlantic, in California, the world’s sixth economic power. This battle has obliged the California Department of Public Health to make public through a press release a series of important recommendations for all users of smartphones. 
(Read the San Francisco Chronicle article explaining the actions led by Dr. Joel Moscowitz.)

Hulot can do better…

These recommendations which come a few days after the announcement in France of a campaign for the six proper uses of cell phones launched by Nicolas Hulot, Minister for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition, and the ban on cell phones in schools and colleges by Jean-Michel Blanquer, Minister for National Education, show to what extent this subject is important, particularly for young persons and children.

Electronic Waste Study Finds $65 Billion in Raw Materials Discarded in Just One Year
by David Leestma, EcoWatch, 
14 December 2017

The amount of electronic waste around the world grew to a record 45 million tons in 2016, according to a United Nations-backed study released on Wednesday.

To put that in perspective, the weight of last year's e-waste was equivalent to about 4,500 Eiffel Towers, according to the study by the UN university, the International Telecommunication Union and the International Solid Waste Association. The amount of e-waste—defined as anything with a plug or a battery—rose by eight percent since 2014, the time of the last assessment.

The study also found that raw materials thrown out as e-waste—metals such as gold, silver, copper, platinum and palladium— were worth $64.61 billion in 2016. But despite this economic incentive, only 8.9 million tons of e-waste were recovered.

  • Magnetic field (MF) non-ionizing radiation is also given off by power lines
  • Pregnant women exposed to the highest levels are 48% more likely to miscarry
  • Some 24.2% of such women miscarry versus 10.4% with the lowest exposure
  • MF radiation, which everyone is exposed to, has previously been linked to cancer
  • Miscarriages affect between 15 and 20 percent of pregnancies in the US 

Wi-fi and cellphones increase pregnant women's risk of suffering a miscarriage by nearly 50 percent, new research reveals.

Magnetic field (MF) non-ionizing radiation, which is also given off by power lines and cell towers, has been found in past studies to put a stress on the body, leading to genetic damage that can cause pregnant women to miscarry.
