190 Wetenschappers doen appel aan de V.N. (2)
Op de website van het EMF scientists appeal worden er, ter ondersteuning van dit appeal, diverse quotes gegeven van een aantal EMF-experts.
Uit deze reacties blijkt dat de urgentie van ingrijpen erg hoog is. Zo ook de grote en diverse schadelijke gevolgen voor de gezondheid.

“Man-made electromagnetic fields impact all living organisms, acting first on the unit membrane. We must reduce our dependence on 'wireless' technologies, reduce the numbers of masts (i.e., cell towers), of Wi-Fi apparatus, of cordless phones and so on, and clearly indicate, in public spaces, the intensity of the ambient electromagnetic field.”
Prof. Marie-Claire Cammaerts, PhD., Free University of Brussels, Faculty of Science, Belgium.

"Non-ionizing radiation (NIR) absorption by the population increased many times in the last few decades. The health effects of this will show a dramatic impact in the near future. Therefore effective precautionary procedures should urgently be adopted aiming to reduce NIR exposure and to reduce its health risks, in line with the IARC 2002 and 2011 recommendations that NIR is a possible human carcinogen".
Alvaro Augusto de Salles, PhD., Professor, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul – UFRGS, Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil.
“Electromagnetic fields from power and telecommunications systems, as they are present in our everyday environment, have biological and human health impacts that have not been officially acknowledged. The effects of these fields have simply not been taken seriously enough.”
Paul Héroux, PhD, Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health McGill University Medicine, Montreal Canada,
“U.S. regulatory standards and international guidelines only control for short-term heating of tissue. The standards do not protect us from the low-intensity, chronic exposures to electromagnetic fields (EMF) that are common today. The scientists who signed the Appeal request that the UN and member nations protect the global human population, and animal and plant life from EMF exposures.
There has been strong support from the international scientific community for the Appeal, even among those who believe that scientists should not take public policy positions. Some have taken personal risks to sign the Appeal because this is a public health issue that affects everyone now, as well as future generations.
The scientists who have signed the Appeal have published more than 2,000 peer-reviewed research papers on electromagnetic fields.”
