BREAKING NEWS: New, Unprotective Wireless Radiation Exposure Guidelines Adopted by ICNIRP
The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) issued a media release yesterday, March 11th, to announce the publication of its new human exposure guidelines for non-ionizing radiation (100 KHz to 300 GHz) in the journal Health Physics. The guidelines address radio, WiFi, and Bluetooth in addition to 3G, 4G, and 5G cell phones and cell towers.
According to ICNIRP Chairman, Eric van Rongen, "We know parts of the community are concerned about the safety of 5G and we hope the updated guidelines will help put people at ease."
Dr. Joel Moskowitz, Director of the Center for Family and Community Health at the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley, believes the newly released guidelines will not put people "at ease," but will actually "increase public concerns about wireless technology." The guidelines were designed to protect the public only from short-term heating (or thermal) effects, not long-term, biological effects which have been well-documented in the scientific literature for decades. Moskowitz writes, "...ICNIRP continues to dismiss the many hundreds of peer-reviewed studies that have found biologic and health effects from exposure to low-intensity, radio frequency radiation including many human as well as animal studies. The preponderance of the research has found evidence of increased cancer incidence, oxidative stress, DNA damage, and infertility from exposure to wireless radiation."
