5G pollution
Erasmo Venosi, Il Corriere Nazionale, 7 May 2024

A dutiful application of the Principle of Responsibility, Precautionary and Good Policy should have led the Public Defender to change the limits of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation only as a result of a rigorous verification of the effects of 5G technology…

Letter to Italian officials


Microwave news reports, on March 13, 2024, the International Commission on the Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields sent a letter to Italian public officials critical of the new law it passed on December 30, 2023, increasing the Italian radiofrequency radiation human exposure limits. For over two decades, Italy has had a lower exposure threshold. ICBE-EMF expressed support in this letter for the 6×6 Network, a collaborative Italian advocacy group, composed of scientists, physicians, advocacy groups and citizens, who have organized in opposition to oppose the new law.

U.S. NTP Quits RF
Promised Studies on Mechanisms Never Done

The U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) has closed down its RF radiation research program. Indeed, it appears that work effectively stopped some time ago.

Ushuaia prohibits the installation of 5G antennas in the city; joins three other national municipalities

Like Commune of Lechmann (Santa Fe), Azul (Buenos Aires) and Capilla del Monte (Córdoba), they will not enable the installation of antennas until they have precise information that the radiation from 5G antennas does not affect the health of the inhabitants of those communes; In the world, 5G has 1.6 billion users

Why did NIH abruptly halt research on the harms of cell phone radiation?

by Devra Davis, Opinion Contributor – 02/01/24 8:00 AM ET

In a shocking reversal, the National Toxicology Program (NTP) of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences has quietly disclosed that it will stop studying the biological or environmental impacts of cell phone radiofrequency radiation.


Brain Tumor Rates Are Rising in the US: The Role of Cell Phone & Cordless Phone.

Head and neck tumors associated with cell phone use have increased in the U.S. since 2000

Electromagnetic Radiation Safety, Feb 1, 2024

Since the year 2000, the U.S. has experienced significant increases in the age-adjusted incidence rates of four head and neck tumors associated with cell phone use, including the most serious malignant brain tumor (glioblastoma), a non-malignant tumor on the outer covering of the brain (meningioma) and cancers of the salivary and thyroid glands. Among youth less than 20 years of age, nonmalignant meningioma and thyroid cancer significantly increased.


Article by Microwave News: Paul Brodeur, Microwave Pioneer. dies at age 92 on August 17, 2023.

In the summer of 2012, Paul Brodeur sent me an email that began, “Don’t forget that when I croak, you’re supposed to give some credit to me as the original microwave pioneer.” I came across it in my files after learning that Brodeur had died on August 2nd at the age of 92. It was among his many letters, notes and clippings I had stashed away over the last 50 years…

In this article, Dr. James C Lin agrees with the findings made by ICBE-EMF in its October 2022 peer reviewed scientific paper entitled:  “Scientific evidence invalidates health assumptions underlying the FCC and ICNIRP exposure limit determinations for radiofrequency radiation: implications for 5G


Cell phone radiation exposure limits and engineering solutions

Published: April 4, 2023

Summary Statement
This paper details six low-cost engineering fixes that could dramatically reduce cellphone radiation. The paper also discusses seven blind spots in the way we have set emissions standards for cellphones. Those blind spots suggest that current standards are inadequate and that no one can be assured that cellphones on the market today are safe.

James C. Lin’s new paper “Carcinogenesis from chronic exposure to radio-frequency radiation” October 31, 2022

Lin is one of the world’s most renowned scientists who has studied the effects of radio frequency (RF) radiation, and a distinguished former member of the two organizations that created the RF exposure limits, the International Commission on Nonionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), challenges the validity of these safety limits.
