It is time to take a good hard look at how you use your mobile phone. Deep down in the manufactures manual is an instruction to keep the phone away from your head. Depending on the manufacturer, the recommended distance could be 5 millimeters to 2.5 centimeters. Why this recommendation? This is so your phone use does not exceed the current regulatory safety limits for microwave radiation exposure to your head or body.
After months of legal action by French physician Dr. Marc Arazi, in June 2017 the National Frequency Agency of France (ANFR) revealed the 2015 test results of hundreds of cell phones. This ANFR study shows that if you use these phones like the majority of people do, touching the body, the phones significantly exceeded the government radiation exposure safety limits.
Test chart below shows the results of the study. If you do place one of these mobile phones directly in contact with your body, your exposure level to microwave radiation can be three or more times greater than the maximum Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) safety level! I would like to point out that a lot of independent scientists are saying that the SAR value, is already set far too high in the first place! (Note: There is a difference between the USA and European SAR safety limit.)
The SAR value uses a standard 25 year old male head size to set the safety limit. This is a useless test when it comes to children because they have much thinner skulls, smaller heads and the protective myelin sheath hasn't developed over their brain neurones yet. This means that any child's microwave radiation exposure is much greater than for an adult, when using a mobile phone. What level of exposure are children getting in the light of this new information?
Independent scientists are ringing alarm bells about the health effects of these devices. Watch this 3 minute video.
Why in California, did the CTIA, a wireless industry lobby group, sue the City of Berkeley for passing an ordinance that consumers be informed about the manufacturer's safety instructions to keep these devices away from your body? These safety instructions are deep down in the manufactures manuals.
The CTIA argued that the “Right To Know Ordinance” violated free speech rights. They lost their case when the judges ruled that the Ordinance was “in the public interest”. The Court concluded that barring the Berkeley law “would injure the public interest in having a free flow of accurate information.”
The city of Berkeley Mobile Phone retailers are now required to post this notice in clear view:
To assure safety, the Federal Government requires that cell phones meet radio frequency (RF) exposure guidelines. If you carry or use your phone in a pants or shirt pocket or tucked into a bra when the phone is ON and connected to a wireless network, you may exceed the federal guidelines for exposure to RF radiation. Refer to the instructions in your phone or user manual for information about how to use your phone safely.
The industry went to a lot of expense to try and stop this information being in clear view. Isn't it your right to be made fully aware of this safety requirement?
So why was there such strong industry opposition to prevent this information from being placed in plain sight?
Here you will find the fine print warnings for different devices.
Update: 18th December 2017 - California Health Officials Release Guidelines To Avoid Cellphone Radiation
Dr. Joel Moskowitz at UC Berkeley said, “Currently we’re not doing a good job in regulating radiation from these devices. In fact, we’re doing an abysmal job.”
Moskowitz says this is a long-time coming.
He’s partially responsible for bringing this information to light. He sued the Department of Public Health for refusing to release information about the dangers of cellphone radiation back in 2009.
This spring he won that case.
“People are being injured and harmed by the delay in having this information accessible to them,” Moskowitz said.
18th November 2019 - Brain cancers : 4 times more new cases of glioblastoma in 2018 according to Public Health France
Absolute duty to protect children and young people
For Dr Annie Sasco, cancer epidemiologist, former Director of Research Unit at IARC-WHO:
“The evolution of incidence and mortality rates of central nervous system tumors as a whole and especially glioblastoma over the past 30 years is of particular concern. Of course, diagnostic behaviours have evolved and play a role, especially for older people. Nevertheless, there is a real increase, even among the youngest, for whom it is likely that diagnostic modalities have changed less than among the elderly and which may therefore be linked to environmental factors and primarily to the use of mobile or wireless phones. Informing the public should make it possible not to continue on this upward trajectory, especially among young people, with an absolute duty to protect children by not allowing them to use a cellular phone and in general by protecting them from exposure to electromagnetic fields“.
