Akademierna i humaniora och vetenskaper i Kanada – om hälsoriskerna med elektromagnetiska fält

Jag vet inte vilken betydelse denna föreningar har i samhället, de tycks mest tro att det är de termiska effekterna som har betydelse för ohälsan, men jag kan läsa följa intressanta: ”Vissa människor är oroliga för att en uppsättning av symptom, som har kallats ”RFR syndrom ”eller” mikrovågsstrålning sjukdom, ”kan bero på långvarig lågintensiv exponering för RF-fält. Vid granskning av litteraturen, har panelen inte hitta klara vetenskapliga bevis att stödja förekomsten av ett sådant syndrom. Det finns dock bevis för att vissa människor kan kunna känna när de utsätts för RF-fält.
Vilka är konsekvenserna för Safety Code 6 av panelens vetenskapliga granskning av den aktuella tillgängliga uppgifter om biologiska effekter och de potentiella negativa hälsoeffekter av exponering för radiofrekventa fält? I synnerhet bör fenomenet icke-termiska effekter vara beaktas i Safety Code 6?

Här en länk till originalrapporten

Biologiska effekter kan förekomma vid icke-termiska exponeringsnivåer. Eftersom det finns tillräckliga bevis för att dra slutsatsen att sådana biologiska effekter är förknippade med negativa hälsoeffekter effekter, observerade den potentiella betydelsen av biologiska effekter på icke-termiska exponeringsnivåer
kräver ett förtydligande innan icke-termiska effekter bedöms ingå i Safety Code 6.
Panelen konstaterade att medan gränsvärden för huvud, hals och bål som anges i säkerhet Kod 6 gäller även för ögat, föreslår Safety Code 6 som ännu lägre exponering för ögat är önskvärd. På grund av de unika fysiologiska egenskaper i ögat, rekommenderar panelen att en lägre gränsvärde fastställas. Även om de tillgängliga uppgifterna är otillräckliga för att definiera en exakt gräns lokal exponering för ögat, föreslår panelen att gränsvärdet som anges i
Safety Code 6 för huvud, hals och bål (inklusive ögat) hos allmänheten kan också vara tillämpas för lokala exponeringar mot ögon RF arbetare. Panelen rekommenderar också att nya information genereras i tid för att bättre definiera gränsvärden för ögat.
Vilken forskning behövs för att bättre förstå de potentiella hälsoeffekter för

Vilken forskning behövs för att bättre förstå de potentiella hälsokonsekvenser för icke termiska effekter? Efter sin granskning av tillgängliga vetenskapliga litteraturen, har panelen slutsatsen att ytterligare forskning behövs om de potentiella hälsoeffekterna av RF-fält. Även exponeringar RF-fält kan orsaka vissa biologiska effekter är mer forskning behövs också för att förstå hur dessa förändringar inträffar. Ytterligare forskning behövs också för att undersöka om vissa befolkning undergrupper som barn är mer känsliga för effekterna av exponering för RF-fält.
Fortsatta studier av exponerade befolkningsgrupper ger de primära medel för direkt
bedöma de potentiella effekterna av RF-fält på människors hälsa. Eftersom mobiltelefoner och liknande anordningar, har varit i bruk under en relativt kort tidsperiod, ytterligare observation av exponerade populationer krävs för att undersöka potentiella negativa hälsoeffekter på grund av långvarig exponering för
RF-fält. Adekvat exponeringsbedömningen kommer att vara avgörande för framgången för sådana undersökningar.

Forskningsläget och Dariusz Leszczynskis intryck från Monte Verità

Har gjort en Googleöversättning av Dariusz Leszczynski intressanta och viktiga reflektion över konferensen i Monte Veritá

Länk till Dariusz Leszczynskis artikel

Citat: ”Den 2: a Monte Verita var en välorganiserad möte med representativ grupp av forskare, men slutresultatet känns ganska smalt. Återigen vetenskapliga insamling av Bioelectromagnetics forskare har visat att inte bara forskningen inte utvecklas på grund av brist på finansiering, utan snarare på grund av bristen på nya idéer. I ett enda  ord, det är – stagnation.

Tack vare Niels Kuster hade jag möjlighet att delta i den 2: a Monte Verita möte. Jag presenterade det en översikt över de proteomik studier som utförts hittills. Min presentation jag slutade i  en mycket pessimistisk ton. Jag citerade fragment av e-postmeddelandet som beskriver RF-EMF forskning. Noten jag fått från min kollega, en framstående proteomik forskare.

E-mejl från  kollega: ”—- EMF forskningen är det mest oortodoxa forskningsområde jag någonsin har sett hittills. Människor alltid göra samma sak och kommer alltid att få pengar för att göra samma sak att få samma resultat. Real surrealistisk forskning

Jag börjar inse att det är ett hårt jobb att få innovativa metoder i fältet. Men jag tror du håller på att gå — ”

Jag tror att detta citat ganska väl beskriver det aktuella läget för forskningen om RF-EMF. Detta tillstånd har tyvärr väl återspeglas i de föredragningar och diskussioner som hölls den 2: a Monte Verita möte.

Här är några iakttagelser från mötet. På något sätt är detta en sammanfattande översikt av vad som hände i Monte Verita. På grund av min ”specialitet”, gäller mina kommentarer  RF-EMF.

Som väntat var DNA-skador och genotoxicitet av RF-EMF en av huvudfrågorna för mötet. Utmärkt, som alltid, var föreläsning av Primo Schär (Schweiz). Det fanns två intressanta kommentarer i hans tal. Först skulle det vara möjligt att vissa forskare finner DNA-skador som induceras av RF, medan andra inte gör det, kan de båda sidorna ha rätt?  Kan vi dra fel slutsatser för att titta på de RF effekter. Mening, är det möjligt att den primära ”skada” sker någon annanstans och den ibland observerade DNA ”skada” är en biprodukt, som inte alltid sker, av den ursprungliga skadan?

Den andra kommentaren var att när DNA ”skada” observeras det att det inte automatiskt innebär att RF är genotoxiskt. DNA-skador uppstår i cellerna spontant och repareras av celler. Frågan är om ”RF-inducerad skada” förblir oreparerade eller det repareras tusentals liknande DNA-strängbrott som förekommer spontant i celler varje dag. Kort sagt – DNA-sträng- brott betyder inte ännu att det inducerande medlet är genotoxiskt. Vi vet inte vad som är öde ”DNA-skador” observerats i vissa studier – är den reparerad eller är den bestående i ytterligare generationer av celler. Med tanke på effektiviteten hos mekanismerna DNA-reparation i celler kan man misstänka att ”RF-inducerad DNA-skada” kan repareras … Vi vet inte.

Jim Weaver (USA) var förespråkare för en ny metod. I sitt yttrande söker RF effekter med sådana komplexa system som hela djur eller till och med hela celler är svårt när vi inte vet vilka mekanismer som ger RF effekter. Han föreslog att börja med enkla system och göra dem mer komplicerad allt eftersom nya kunskapen skapas – det in silico strategi. Men jag är inte säker på om, i nuvarande skede av kunskap om RF effekter är Bioelectromagnetics redo för in silico strategi. Till exempel använder in silico tillvägagångssätt är det möjligt att göra människolikt byggda enkla biologiska membran, utsätta dem och se hur de reagerar på RF. Därefter vet svaret hos enkla biologiskt membran, skulle det vara möjligt att göra systemet mer ”komplex” och bestämma hur den ytterligare komplexiteten påverkade responsen till RF och så vidare och så vidare, att göra systemet mer och mer komplexa.

Problemet är vilka enkla system skulle vara lämpliga att starta forskning med. Vi vet inte var molekyler absorberar RF i celler och vad som händer med dem efter absorptionen av RF. När människan bygga även den enkla biologiska membran, måste vi bestämma vilken typ av lipider och i vilka proportioner ska användas, vilka strukturella proteiner, vilka funktionella proteiner. I situation när vi inte vet alls där RF absorberas är det möjligt att göra in silico-system som inte kommer att svara på alla till RF. Och om systemet inte svarar – vi vet inte hur man ska ändra den så att den svarar. In silico idé är frestande men när vi inte har någon startpunkt, molekyl kandidat för det första absorptionssteget av RF, kan utmaningen inte bli mindre än när man exponera hela cellen för RF.

Buzz av både spänning och skepsis framkallades genom uppvisande av Boris Pasche (USA). Han använder specifika RF-frekvenser för behandling av cancer. Som framgår tycks terapin att påverka och ökar patienternas överlevnadstid och även kan bota vissa typer av cancer. Emellertid i diskussionen presenterade oro för att den energi som deponeras i vävnader är mycket liten. Om så låg energi skulle bekräftas att påverka biologiska system skulle det vara ett stort genombrott som skulle kräva en översyn av nuvarande paradigm. Dosimetri experter var mycket skeptisk och om Boris inte skulle ha stöd från de observerade patientdata överlevnad, från ”hetta diskussion” man kunde förvänta sig att ”korsfästas”. För nu är det inte hände. Ny forskning med bra dosimetri stöd planeras, både in vitro och in vivo, för att bekräfta förekomsten av effekter.

I samband med de effekter som inducerats med endast vissa RF-frekvenser, observerade av Boris Pasche och även av Igor Belyaev (Slovakien och Ryssland) och Carl Blackman (USA), hade jag en intressant fikarast prata med Zhengping Xu (Kina). Hans poäng var: kan det vara så att genom att göra ”perfekt jämn dosimetri” av exponering kammare som används i in vitro-studier kan vi förlora effekter som kan observeras i ”inte så perfekt i sin enhetlighet” exponering kammare? Att när exponeringskammaren perfekt inställd kan det ställas in på ”fel” parametern (er)? Vi vet inte ännu vad ”riktiga” parametrarna för radiofrekvensexponering är. Detta för tankarna till den studie av David de Pomerai. Använda ofullkomliga exponeringskammare han såg effekter. När kammaren gjordes perfekt trimmad av Motorola ingenjörer effekten försvann. Kan det vara så att vi skulle kunna trimma vår exponering kammare till felaktiga parametrar och har problem att se effekter. Sådan perfekt inställning finns inte i verkliga livet exponeringar när vi lägger telefonen till vårt huvud. Något att tänka på …

Tidigare, då undersökningar av eventuella hälsoeffekter var i sin början, började forskarna titta på hjärncancer. Det fanns inga experimentella data tyder på att hjärnan cancer skulle vara resultatet av exponeringarna. Det var snarare tanken att när vi sätter strålningskälla till vår huvud, hjärna utsatt och ”hjärnan + strålning = cancer”. Nu är när de hitta cancer visat sig vara svårt ny ”mode” är visas. Om ”strålning + hjärna ≠ cancer” då kan vara, ”strålning + hjärna = neurodegeneration”? Vi återigen inte har övertygande vetenskap att backa upp detta begrepp, men det ser ut som mer och mer forskningsinsatser går i denna riktning.

Vad enkelt skrämde mig var att den ökända danska kohorten tittar på neurodegeneration och uppenbarligen nya ”vetenskapliga” studien är under tryckning. Resultatet är, naturligtvis, att det inte finns någon effekt mobiltelefon strålning på neurodegenerering. Jag undrar hur det är möjligt att pseudo vetenskap från den danska kohorten passerar genom peer-review. Är recensioner så förblindad av storleken, eller är de helt enkelt inkompetent eller har de intressekonflikt? Något är allvarligt fel. Som jag skrev vid flera tillfällen, är exponeringsdata i danska kohort inte bara icke existerande, men det är helt enkelt fel. Här är länken till mitt brev publicerades i British Medical Journal som förklarar brutto fel exponering bevis i de danska Cohort data och det gäller för alla danska kohort publikationer ”Re: Användning av mobiltelefoner och risken för hjärntumörer: uppdatering av danska kohortstudie ”.

Bristen på bevis för RF cancer-länk och en del bevis för neurodegeneration-länk presenterades av Meike Mevissen (Schweiz). Hennes genomgång och analys av de publicerade hittills studier genuttryck visade att gener kopplade till cancer verkar inte vara mycket påverkas av RF-exponeringen, medan vissa gener kopplade till neurodegeneration är. Det är fortfarande för svag bevis eftersom endast mycket få studier avrättades och tillgängliga för denna analys. Men denna väg bör fortsätta – screening först och göra hypotes nästa.

Den high-throughput screening av gener, proteiner och metaboliter verkar vara ett stort problem inom Bioelectromagnetics. Vi har inte mekanism genom vilken RF kan påverka celler, men vi ser för effekter som en ”blind person” skulle göra. Försöker allt vad som är möjligt inom räckhåll. Men eftersom det finns tusentals gener, miljontals proteiner och många metaboliter det kan ta lång tid innan vi analyserar dem alla. Det finns dock metoder som tillåter high-throughput screening och hitta vad gener, proteiner och metaboliter reagerar till RF. Med denna kunskap är det möjligt att bygga kunskapsbaserade hypoteser och avgöra vad fysiologiska processer i celler kan påverkas och testa dem. Det dock verkar vara en handfull inflytelserika forskare som starkt motsätter sig användningen av high-throughput screening. Detta ses i forskningsresultaten. Till exempel under de senaste 10 åren publicerades bara 12 proteomik studier. Sex av dem var från min forskargrupp. Det visar att mycket få grupper gör proteomik. Den främsta orsaken är att det är dyrt. Och när forskningsanslag granskas av motståndare high-throughput screening resultatet är förutsägbar … Hur är det möjligt att användningen av high-throughput screening metoder är väl möjligt i klinisk eller farmakologisk forskning men Bioelectromagnetics är tabu? Vid några tillfällen fick jag höra en gång av en framstående universitet vetenskapsman och sedan en framstående industri vetenskapsman, att problemet är följande: med high-throughput screening är alltid möjligt att hitta svarande gener eller proteiner. Om sådan information, innan det bekräftas av ytterligare studier, grips av nyhetsmedia kommer det att orsaka catchy rubriker och problem för industrin. Slutsats från dessa pseudo-vetenskapsmän var – gör inte high-throughput screening.

Vetenskapliga konferenser är inte bara att lyssna på presentationer eller för att titta på affischerna, men för många, de är främst evenemang där är möjligt att diskutera ansikte mot ansikte med andra forskare. Under en av kaffepauserna hade jag en  intressant diskussion med Myles Capstik (Schweiz). Det visade sig att vi båda var frustrerade över den vetenskapliga kvaliteten i många (om inte de flesta) av djurförsök. Problemet är att forskarna använder för få djur. Det är ofta möjligt att lyssna på vetenskapliga presentationer där experiment utfördes på endast 4-6 djur. Använda så få djur som möjligt, för att sänka kostnaderna, men teoretiskt, tillräckligt för att hävda ”statistisk signifikans”. Vad än värre är att bygga en analys på svaren från 4-6 djur som vissa forskare hävdar att de har visat att djur inte svarar och att det direkt visar att människor är säkra (!). Det är en helt felaktig uppfattning. För det första, generalisera resultaten från en  så liten djurgrupp är inte möjlig. För det andra, om djuren inte svarar på låga exponeringar nivå av RF betyder det inte att människor inte kommer att svara. Detta är ovetenskapligt.

I slutet av konferensen anordnades grupparbete där forskare delades in i flera grupper och bad att komma med idéer för fortsatt forskning. Resultatet blev ”inget nytt under himlen”. Samma ämnen samma frågor någon önskar nya metoder. Bara upprepa och upprepa och upprepa, till leda av samma saker (Monte Verità rekommendationer).

Men det var ett intressant uttalande från Wolfgang Kainz (USA). Förutom att presentera sin forskargrupps idéer lade han också fram i en  separat bild, vilka hans personliga idéer är. Och det var en överraskning. Det första uttalandet från Wolfgang var att: ”EMF kan påverka biologiska system på icke-termisk nivå”. Detta i sig är en långtgående uttalande, särskilt när uttalad sitter bredvid Bernard Veyret (Frankrike) tidigare under 12 år med ICNIRP och medförfattare som ständigt uttalade mantrat att endast termiska effekter induceras av RF. Bernard kommenterade inte detta ”icke-termisk” var en överraskning. Det fanns också en annan inte så förvånande uttalande från Wolfgang att ”dagens säkerhetsnivå tycks skydda allmänheten”.

Kombinationen av dessa två uttalanden från Wolfgang, framkallade några kommentarer från publiken. Först motsatte Denis Henshaw (UK) tanken att säkerhetsnormerna skyddar från Elf exponering när det finns bevis för att barnleukemi framkallas på de nivåer som tillåts av gränsvärdena. Wolfgang motsatte sig inte Denis ‘kommentar. Den andra kommentaren var från mig (Dariusz Leszczynski, Australien). Jag förklarade att om Wolfgang håller med om att det finns icke-termiska effekter och ICNIRP säkerhetsnormer är inställd på att skydda bara från termiska effekter vet vi inte alls om de nuvarande säkerhetsnormerna tillräckligt skydda allmänheten. De säkerhetsnormer skyddar inte från de icke-termiska effekter. Wolfgang motsatte sig inte mitt uttalande.”

Världsaktion mot strålningen den 21 april 2012

Världsaktion mot strålning den 21 april 2012

EMR-aktionsdag – 21 april 2012

Uppdragsbeskrivning

Den världsomspännande EMR-aktionsdagen ska i linje med Earth Day 2012 skydda naturen och dess invånares liv och hälsa mot artificiell elektromagnetisk strålning (EMR). Med denna strävan kommer människor runt hela jorden att sluta upp för att minska skadorna från EMR och skapa ett hälsosammare liv för alla.

Artificiell EMR är den enda hälsorisk som når varje kvadratcentimeter av jordytan i varje ögonblick, och skadar människor, djur, insekter och växtlighet. Elektromagnetisk nedsmutsning har införts av militära och industriella interessen, med förödande effekter på folkhälsa, miljö och socialt välbefinnande. Från mikrovågs- (MW) och radiofrekvent (RF) strålning till lågfrekventa (ELF) fält, är de bidragande strålningskällorna:

  • så kallade ‘smarta’ elnät och elmätare
  • trådlöst internet  (wi-fi), wi-max och tillhörande infrastruktur
  • mobiltelefoner och deras infrastruktur, antenner på master, hustak och på dolda platser
  • trådlösa telefoner och deras sändare
  • läckage från mikrovågsugnar
  • baby-vakter och barnleksaker med radioteknik
  • medicinsk utrustning med radioteknik
  • RFID-chips i männskor, djur, konsumentprodukter, ID- och kredit-kort
  • elektromagnetiska vapensystem
  • TV, radio- och satellit-sändningar
  • radar och sonar
  • elnätet med tillhörande utrustning, och bredband över elnätet (BPL)
  • lysrör och lågenergilampor (CFL)

Trots att vissa artificiella EMR-källor marknadsförs som ‘gröna’ ger samtliga upphov till skadliga biologiska effekter och hälsoeffekter. Effekterna förvärras av långvarig exponering och när de kombineras med ytterligare EMR_källor, kemiska gifter eller metaller. Mikrovågsstrålningen i stadsmiljö kan vara upp till en biljon gånger högre än de naturliga bakgrundsnivåerna.

Allt liv är till sin natur elektromagnetiskt. Från den symbiotiska balansen i naturens ekosystem till hälsan i våra egna celler och organ – i synnerhet hjärnan och hjärtat – levande system är beroende av ostörd elektrisk signalering. Alla varelser får en känlsa av välmående av jordens egen Schumann-resonans och andra naturliga fält som nu dränks i artificiell EMR.

Både forskare och experter i politik och juridik, som gått igenom tusentals forskningsstudier, varnar för omedelbara och långsiktiga hälsorisker och uppmanar till minimerad exponering. EMR-aktionsdagen tillhandahåller kunskap och information om strålningskällor, hälsoeffekter och lösningar för behövande grupper och individer.

Skadlig EMR innefattar också joniserande strålning från kärnkraftverk och kärnvapen. Vi uppmanar till reducering av all sådan exponering, även medicinska tester, behandlingar och avfall.

EMR-aktionsdagen föreslår nya alternativ för säkrare och lägre energikonsumtion: fast uppkoppling och fiberoptik i hem, skolor och på arbetsplatser, avskärmande material, säkra lågstrålande zoner och andra EMR-fria lösningar. Vi övertygar människor om att minimera EMR-exponeringen och återuppta kontakten med sin egen biorytm. Vi strävar efter att genom våra juridiska, artistiska och kreativa ansträngningar befria mänskligheten, försvara allmänhetens säkerhet och återställa den elektromagnetiska harmonin på jorden.

Vi fokuserar på lösningar som är bra för alla. För en aktuell lista på våra initiativ, särskilda lösningar och konkreta mål, klicka här.

Österrikiska läkare vill diagnostisera elöverkänslighet, samt skydda dem från elektromagnetiska strålning enligt Europarådets rekomendationer

Guideline av den österrikiska Medical Association För diagnos och behandling av EMFrelated hälsoproblem och sjukdomar (EMF syndrom) Consensus papper av österrikiska Medical Associations EMF Working Group (AG-EMF)
Antagen vid mötet för miljömedicin tjänstemän i Regional Medical
Föreningens och den österrikiska Medical Association den 3 mars 2012 i Wien.

Inledning

Det har skett en kraftig ökning av ospecifika, ofta stress-hälsorelaterade problem som allt fler läkare presenterar som komplexa differentialdiagnos.

En orsak som hittills har fått liten uppmärksamhet är den ökade exponeringen av elektrosmog i hemmet, på arbetet och under fritiden, som förekommer vid sidan av kronisk stress både i privatlivet och arbetslivet. Den kan samverka med ett övrig levnadssituation som kronisk stress som kan leda till utbrändhet.

Hur kan läkare bevaka denna utveckling?

Den österrikiska Medical Association har utvecklat en riktlinje för differentiell diagnos och eventuell behandling av ospecifika stressrelaterade hälsoproblem associerad med elektrosmog. Dess kärnelement är en patient enkät bestående av en allmän bedömning av stress-symtom och en särskild bedömning av elektrosmog exponering.

Utvärderingen av enkäten är tänkt som en vägledningen och stöd i att diagnostisera och behandla EMF-relaterad hälsa problem.

Bakgrund

Många blir alltmer exponeras, i olika grader, för att en kombination av låg
och högfrekventa elektriska fält (EF), magnetiska fält (MF) och elektromagnetiska fält (EMF) av olika signalmönster, intensitet och tekniska tillämpningar under varierande tidsperioder, i dagligt tal benämnt elektrosmog. Läkare är ofta konfronteras med ospecifika besvär utan att tydligt identifierbara orsaker (Huss och Röösli 2006). Det har misstänkt att miljöförhållanden såsom ökad exponering av befolkningen radiovågor, som utgår t ex från trådlösa telefoner, mobiltelefoner basstationer, mobiltelefoner, GPRS, UMTS, datakort för bärbara datorer och bärbara datorer och trådlöst LAN (WLAN), men även exponering för elektriska och magnetiska fält som härrör från kraftledningar, apparater och utrustning, kan spela en kausal roll (Blake Levitt och Lai 2010). För den medicinska yrke, väcker nya utmaningar i diagnos och behandling. En central fråga för den kausala tilldelning av symtom är bedömningen av variationen i hälsoproblem beroende på tid och plats, vilket är särskilt relevant för miljö orsaker såsom exponering för elektromagnetiska fält.

I Österrike byggs just nu ut den fjärde generationens mobiltelefoni (LTE), som samt smart mätning (för el, gas och vatten förbrukning), vilket resulterar i ytterligare exponering för elektromagnetiska fält av befolkningen.

Ny radioteknik och tillämpningar har införts utan säkerhet om deras hälsoeffekter. Denna  nya miljöfaktor kan ge upphov till nya frågeställningar inom medicinen. Till exempel frågor av så kallade icke-termiska effekter och potentiella långtidseffekter av låg dos exponering har knappast undersökts före införandet. Vissa patienter misstänker ett samband mellan exponering för elektromagnetiska fält och deras hälsoproblem. Dessutom måste läkare
konfronteras med allt fler hälsoproblem med oidentifierade orsaker. Att ta fram en evidensbaserad behandlingsstrategi i detta sammanhang är en utmaning för dessa differentiell diagnos.
I Österrike finns inga demokratiskt legitimerade begränsningar för att skydda den allmänna befolkningen från exponering för elektromagnetiska fält.

Rekommendationerna från WHO, som sammanställts av Internationella kommissionen för icke-joniserande strålning (ICNIRP 1998), är baserat på en termisk modell. Dessa rekommendationer antogs av EU i dess
Rådets rekommendation av den 1999 (EU-Ratsempfehlung 1999) och av Österrike i sin pre-standard ÖVE / ÖNORM E 8850:2006 02 01 (ÖNORM 2006) utan att ta hänsyn konto långfristiga icke-termiska effekter.

I augusti 2007 publicerade BioInitiative, en internationell expertgrupp, en
omfattande rapport efterlyser förebyggande åtgärder som grundar sig mot exponering för elektromagnetiska fält på tillgängliga vetenskapliga bevis (BioInitiative 2007). Följaktligen, den europeiska Miljöbyrån jämförts elektrosmog andra miljörisker som asbest eller bensen (EES 2007).

I april 2009, en så kallad resolution från Europaparlamentet för en översyn av EMF gränser i EU-rådets rekommendation från 1999 som var baserad på
riktlinjer ICNIRP, med hänvisning till BioInitiative rapport (EU Parlamentet
2009). I maj 2011 antog Europarådets parlamentariska församling för Europa
rapporten ”potentiella farorna med elektromagnetiska fält och deras inverkan på miljön ”(PACE 2011). I betänkandet krävs ett antal åtgärder för att skydda
människor och miljön, i synnerhet från högfrekventa elektromagnetiska fält.
En av rekommendationerna är att ”vidta alla rimliga åtgärder för att minska exponeringen för elektromagnetiska fält, särskilt för radiofrekvenser från mobiltelefoner och särskilt exponering till barn och ungdomar som verkar vara mest i riskzonen för hjärntumörer ”.

Även i maj 2011 en expertgrupp vid Internationella byrån för forskning om
Cancer, ett organ inom WHO, klassificeras radiofrekventa elektromagnetiska fält som möjligen cancerframkallande (grupp 2B) för människor (IARC 2011).

En representativ telefonundersökning (n = 2048, ålder> 14 år) som genomfördes under 2004 Schweiz gav en frekvens av 5% (95% Cl 4-6%) för ett själv beror- ”Diagnos” av elöverkänslighet (Schreier et al. 2006).
I en annan undersökning som genomfördes i Schweiz år 2001, tillskriven 394 svarande specifika hälsoproblem till EMF-exponering. Bland annat följande symtom rapporterades som förekommer ofta: sömnproblem (58%), huvudvärk (41%), nervositet (19%), trötthet (18%) och koncentrationssvårigheter (16%). Den svarande noterat mobilbasstationer (74%), mobiltelefoner (36%), sladdlösa telefoner (29%) och högspänningsledningar (27%) som orsaker. Två tredjedelar av respondenterna hade vidtagit åtgärder för att minska sina symtom, den vanligaste åtgärden är att undvika exponering. Anmärkningsvärt hade endast 13% har hört deras läkare (Röösli et al. 2004). Medan en undersökning från 2006 av Regel et al. beskrivs inga exponeringsdata effekter, två provokation studier om exponering av ”elöverkänsliga” individer och kontrollpersoner till mobil
telefon basstationer signaler (GSM, UMTS eller båda) fann en signifikant minskning av välbefinnande

Efter UMTS exponering i enskilda rapporteringen känsligheten (Zwamborn et al. 2003, Eltiti et al. 2007). Analys av tillgängliga data om exponering av människor som lever nära mobiltelefon basstationer har gett tydliga indikationer för negativa hälsoeffekter effekter (Santini et al. 2002, Navarro et al. 2003, Hutter et al. 2006, Abdel-Rassoul et al. 2007, Blettner et al. 2008).

Baserat på vetenskapliga litteraturen om interaktioner av EMF med biologiska system, flera mekanismer av interaktion är möjliga. En trolig mekanism på
intracellulära och intercellulär nivå, till exempel, är växelverkan via bildningen av fria radikaler eller oxidativ och nitrosative stress (Friedmann et al. 2007, Simko 2007, Pall 2007, Bedard och Krause 2007, Pacher et al. 2007, Desai et al. 2009). Den kretsar kring den ökade bildningen av peroxinitrit (ONOO) från en reaktion av kväve kolmonoxid (NO) med superoxid (O2-). På grund av sin relativt lång halveringstid, peroxynitrit skadar ett stort antal viktiga metaboliska processer och celler komponenter.

Detta tillvägagångssätt kan tjäna som en rimlig förklaring till många av de hälsoproblem, symptom och deras progression observeras i samband med exponering för elektromagnetiska fält. Det finns ökande tecken på att EMF syndrom (EMF) bör räknas till Multisystem sjukdomar (Pall 2007) såsom kronisk trötthetssyndrom (CFS), multipel Kemisk känslighet (MCS), fibromyalgi (FM) och Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
(PTSD).

I Sverige är EMF syndrom betecknas som elöverkänslighet (EHS),
betraktas som en fysisk funktionsnedsättning och redovisas som ett funktionshinder. Med hänvisning till FN: s resolution 48/96, bilaga, av den 20 december 1993 (UN 1993), lokala myndigheter bevilja stöd till personer med EHS. Anställda med EHS har rätt till stöd från sina arbetsgivare så att de kan arbeta trots denna försämring. Några sjukhus i Sverige ger rum med lågt EMF-exponering.

Det österrikiska läkarförbundet anser att det är deras plikt och deras uppdrag att ge medlemmar av den medicinska professionen en sammanställning av det aktuella läget i vetenskaplig och politisk debatt ur ett medicinskt perspektiv och med särskild rekommendationer till åtgärder enligt dessa första riktlinjen. Riktlinjen kan endast förbättras genom förslag, kritik och ändringar. På grund av den snabba utvecklingen av olika tekniker, rekommenderar läkarna att den basala riktlinjen  måste  anpassas kontinuerligt. Vi inbjuder därför alla läkare att skicka bidrag till nästa upplaga av riktlinjer till följande e-postadress: post@aerztekammer.at

Vad skall man tänka på när man hanterar patienter och EMF

När det gäller ospecifika hälsoproblem (se patienten frågeformulär) för vilka ingen klart identifierbar orsak kan hittas, bör exponering för elektromagnetiska fält i princip tas i betraktande som en potentiell orsak, särskilt om patienten misstänker att den kan vara orsaken.
Så här gör du om EMF-relaterade hälsoproblem misstänks

Guideline of the Austrian Medical Association ( ) for the diagnosis and treatment of EMFrelated health problems and illnesses (EMF syndrome) Consensus paper of the Austrian Medical Association’s EMF Working Group ( AG-EMF) Adopted at the meeting of environmental medicine officers of the Regional Medical
Association´s and the Austrian Medical Association on 3rd March 2012 in Vienna.
Introduction There has been a sharp rise in unspecific, often stress-associated health problems that increasingly present physicians with the challenge of complex differential diagnosis.

A cause that has been accorded little attention so far is increasing electrosmog
exposure at home, at work and during leisure activities, occurring in addition to
chronic stress in personal and working life. It correlates with an overall situation of
chronic stress that can lead to burnout.

How can physicians respond to this development?
The Austrian Medical Association has developed a guideline for differential
diagnosis and potential treatment of unspecific stress-related health problems
associated with electrosmog. Its core element is a patient questionnaire consisting of
a general assessment of stress symptoms and a specific assessment of electrosmog
exposure. The guideline is intended as an aid in diagnosing and treating EMF-related health problems.

Background
Many people are increasingly exposed, to various degrees, to a combination of low
and high frequency electric fields (EF), magnetic fields (MF) and electromagnetic
fields (EMF) of different signal patterns, intensities and technical applications for
varying periods of time, colloquially referred to as electrosmog.
Physicians are often confronted with unspecific complaints without clearly
identifiable causes (Huss and Röösli 2006). It has been suspected that environmental
conditions such as increasing exposure of the population to radio waves, emanating
e.g. from cordless phones, mobile phone base stations, cell phones, GPRS, UMTS,
data cards for laptop and notebook computers and wireless LAN (WLAN), but also
exposure to electric and magnetic fields emanating from power lines, devices and
equipment, may play a causal role (Blake Levitt and Lai 2010). For the medical
profession, this raises new challenges in diagnosis and treatment. A central issue for
the causal attribution of symptoms is the assessment of variation in health problems
depending on time and location, which is particularly relevant for environmental
causes such as EMF exposure.
Austria is currently rolling out the fourth generation of mobile telephony (LTE), as
well as smart metering (for electricity, gas and water consumption), resulting in
additional EMF exposure of the population.
New radio technologies and applications have been introduced without certainty
about their health effects, raising new challenges for medicine. For instance, the
issues of so-called non-thermal effects and potential long-term effects of low-dose
exposure were hardly investigated at all prior to introduction. Some patients suspect
a link between EMF exposure and their health problems. Moreover, physicians are
increasingly confronted with health problems with unidentified causes. Pursuing an
evidence-based treatment strategy in this context is a challenge for differential
diagnosis.
In Austria, there are no democratically legitimized limits to protect the general
population from EMF exposure. The recommendations of the WHO, compiled by the
International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP 1998), are
based on a thermal model. These recommendations were adopted by the EU in its
Council Recommendation of 1999 (EU-Ratsempfehlung 1999) and by Austria in its
pre-standard ÖVE/ÖNORM E 8850:2006 02 01 (ÖNORM 2006) without taking into
account long-term non-thermal effects.
In August 2007, the BioInitiative, an international group of experts, published a
comprehensive report calling for preventive measures against EMF exposure based
on the scientific evidence available (BioInitiative 2007). Consequently, the European
Environment Agency compared electrosmog to other environmental hazards such as
asbestos or benzene (EEA 2007).
In April 2009, a resolution of the European Parliament called for a review of the EMF
limits in the EU Council Recommendation of 1999, which was based on the
guidelines of the ICNIRP, with reference to the BioInitiative Report (EU Parliament
2009).
In May 2011, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopted the
report “The potential dangers of electromagnetic fields and their effect on the
environment” (PACE 2011). The report calls for a number of measures to protect
humans and the environment, especially from high-frequency electromagnetic fields.
One of the recommendations is to “take all reasonable measures to reduce exposure
to electromagnetic fields, especially to radio frequencies from mobile phones, and
particularly the exposure to children and young people who seem to be most at risk
from head tumours”.
Also in May 2011, a group of experts at the International Agency for Research on
Cancer, an agency of the WHO, classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as
possibly carcinogenic (Group 2B) for humans (IARC 2011).

A representative telephone survey (n=2048, age >14 years) carried out in 2004 in
Switzerland yielded a frequency of 5% (95% CI 4-6%) for a self-attributed
“diagnosis” of electrosensitivity (Schreier et al. 2006).
In another survey carried out in Switzerland, in 2001, 394 respondents attributed
specific health problems to EMF exposure. Among others, the following symptoms
were reported as occurring frequently: sleep problems (58%), headaches (41%),
nervousness (19%), fatigue (18%) and difficulty concentrating (16%). The respondents listed mobile phone base stations (74%), cell phones (36%), cordless phones (29%) and high-voltage lines (27%) as causes. Two thirds of respondents had taken measures to reduce their symptoms, the most frequent measure being to avoid exposure.

Remarkably, only 13% had consulted their physicians (Röösli et al. 2004).
While a 2006 study by Regel et al. described no exposure effects, two provocation
studies on exposure of “electrosensitive” individuals and control subjects to mobile
phone base station signals (GSM, UMTS or both) found a significant decline in wellbeing after UMTS exposure in the individuals reporting sensitivity (Zwamborn et al. 2003, Eltiti et al. 2007). Analysis of the data available on exposure of people living
near mobile phone base stations has yielded clear indications of adverse health
effects (Santini et al. 2002, Navarro et al. 2003, Hutter et al. 2006, Abdel-Rassoul et al.
2007, Blettner et al. 2008).
Based on the scientific literature on interactions of EMF with biological systems,
several mechanisms of interaction are possible. A plausible mechanism at the
intracellular and intercellular level, for instance, is interaction via the formation of
free radicals or oxidative and nitrosative stress (Friedmann et al. 2007, Simkó 2007,
Pall 2007, Bedard and Krause 2007, Pacher et al. 2007, Desai et al. 2009). It centres on
the increased formation of peroxynitrite (ONOO-) from a reaction of nitrogen
monoxide (NO) with superoxide (O2-). Due to its relatively long half-life,
peroxynitrite damages a large number of essential metabolic processes and cell
components.
This approach can serve as a plausible explanation of many of the health problems,
symptoms and their progression observed in the context of EMF exposure. There are
increasing indications that EMF syndrome (EMFS) should be counted among multisystem disorders (Pall 2007) such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Multiple
Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), fibromyalgia (FM) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
(PTSD).
In Sweden, EMF syndrome is designated as electrohypersensitivity (EHS),
considered a physical impairment and recognized as a disability. With reference to
UN Resolution 48/96, Annex, of 20 December 1993 (UN 1993), local governments
grant support to individuals with EHS. Employees with EHS have a right to support
from their employers so as to enable them to work despite this impairment. Some
hospitals in Sweden provide rooms with low EMF exposure.

The Austrian Medical Association considers it its duty and its mission to provide
members of the medical profession with a compilation of the current state of the
scientific and political debate from a medical perspective and with specific
recommendations for action in this first guideline. The guideline can only be
improved by suggestions, criticism and amendments. Due to the rapid development
of various technologies, the recommendations need to be adapted on an ongoing
basis. We therefore invite all medical professionals to send contributions to the next
edition of the guideline to the following email address: post@aerztekammer.at
What to keep in mind when dealing with patients and EMF
In the case of unspecific health problems (see patient questionnaire) for which no
clearly identifiable cause can be found, EMF exposure should in principle be taken
into consideration as a potential cause, especially if the patient suspects that it may
be the cause.

How to proceed if EMF-related health problems are suspected
The recommended approach to diagnosis and treatment is intended as an aid and
should, of course, be modified as each individual case requires.
1. History of health problems and EMF exposure
2. Examination and findings
3. Measurement of EMF exposure
4. Prevention or reduction of EMF exposure
5. Diagnosis
6. Treatment

NEW Video about EMF’s
View the video now

by Kevin Kunze
Disconnect is a documentary that exposes the truth behind the negative health effects of cell phones. Globally, 5 billion people own mobile devices but few know the potential harm they are causing. Through extensive research and interviews with the world’s leading doctors, scientists, politicians, activists, and victims; Disconnect traces the rise of a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted public health. Severe adverse health effects have been associated with long-term microwave radiation exposure from cell phones. Many doctors and scientists believe brain tumors, infertility, and breast cancer are correlated with cumulative cell phone use.

Disconnect includes interviews with neurologists, doctors, scientists, and researchers from Yale, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, UCSF, UCSD, University of Utah, SUNY, and Kaiser Permanente, along with commentary from the former Head of the Radiation Studies Program at the World Health Organization and the Director of Toxic Substances Control for California’s Environmental Protection Agency.

In addition, the documentary provides perspectives from experts who helped shape the cell phone industry including Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak, Virgin Mobile’s founder Richard Branson, cell phone inventor Martin Cooper, and the founder of one of the first telecommunication companies, which sold briefcase-size mobile phones. Disconnect examines the political realities of the telecommunication corporation through accounts from Lt. Governor of California and former San Francisco Mayor, Gavin Newsom, the former Israeli Minister of Science and Internal Affairs, Senator Mark Leno, Senator Leland Yee, and the Mayor of Portland, ME.

ELECTROSMOG PROTEST on the 16th of Nov. 2011 in Brussels
– 1 –
Dear all,
You may have once read:
A two-minute cell phone call alters a child’s brain function for one hour. But your cellphone is not the only source of microwave radiation we are exposed to. In recent years there has been an explosive increase in our exposure to microwaves from cellphone masts (2G, 3G, UMTS,…), wireless
DECT-phones, wireless DECT-baby monitors, wireless (WiFi/WLan) internet, satellites for wireless internet, etc.

In every European country the governments are allowing the (telecom)
industry to install even more and new sources of pulsed microwaves such
as from masts with 4G (LTE), WiMax and ”smart” energy meters.
There is a direct link between the current rise of chronic disorders
(Alzheimer, ADHD, fibromyalgia, CFS, insomnia, stress related disorders etc.) and the exponential rise in electrosmog during the past 10 years.

Thousands of professors, researchers and medical doctors have been
warning politicians repeatedly that the current exposure to pulsed
microwaves is a direct threat to public health and that new safety
biologically-based standards for EMF exposures are needed.
The politicians need to realise that public health is the utmost important and act accordingly. That’s why we will unite our protest!
On the 16th of Nov. citizens from throughout Europe will protest in Brussels.

We demand ”LESS ELECTROSMOG!”, we protest against:
– The EU-conference (held on the 16th and 17th of Nov.) lacks scientists
with opposing views. None of the scientists of whom their research has
proven that there are harmful health effects of pulsed microwave radiation
are invited. We for instance refer to: L. Hardell, H. Lai, M. Kundi, F. Adlkofer, G. Oberfeld, M. Havas, etc. (details of the conference:
http://www.onetec.be/EMF2011)

– The European governments and their legislations that don’t take into
account the harmful sub-thermal health effects of EMF.
– The fact that – except in Sweden and Spain – there is still no recognition of
electrohypersensitivity as a functional impairment.
– The impact of the telecom industry on research. Research sponsored by
the telecom industry finds no biological effects nine times more often than
research paid for by independent parties. Coincidence?
ELECTROSMOG PROTEST on the 16th of Nov. 2011 in Brussels

We invite everybody to join our protest!
When? On Wednesday the 16th of November 2011 from 16h until 18h30.
Where? Next to the entrance of the Charlemagne-building
(where the EU-conference on EMF and Health is being held).
Address: Wetstraat 170 (Rue de la Loi 170), 1000 Brussels, Belgium.
Contact? If you will join our protest or have questions
please send an e-mail to steven@petition-electrosmog.be
Please read (and sign) the petition at http://www.Petition-Electrosmog.be
and forward this to your family, friends and colleagues!

Thank you.

”Governments and health protection agencies usually hide behind out-ofdate
“official guidelines” that were drawn up when it was thought that the
only way that living organisms could be harmed by electromagnetic
radiation was if it was sufficiently strong to cause significant acute
heating. And in fluid-filled plastic dolls!
This is totally false! There has been countless papers in scientific journals
over several decades that show very clearly that there are non-thermal
biological effects (some of them extremely harmful) of electromagnetic
fields that are well below the official safety guidelines.”

Prof. dr. Henry Lai: ”Only 25% of studies funded by the wireless industry show some type of biological effect from microwave radiation. Independently
funded studies, however, are far more damning: 75% of those studies —
free of industry influence — show a bioeffect.”

Lloyds of London, the largest insurance company in the world in its report
”Electro-Magnetic Fields From Mobile Phones: Recent Developments”:
The issue of asbestos and its implications is widely known throughout the
insurance industry, and many comparisons can be drawn with EMF – the
initial impression that it was a ‘wonder product’ coupled with potential very long-term serious health issues not understood at the start of its use.

The danger with EMF is that, like asbestos, the exposure insurers face is
underestimated and could grow exponentially and be with us for many years.
