The age old battle of mobiles,tablets and masts are bad for our health is still a healthy topic.For years on end it’s been argued that this technology is bad for our health causing cancer and so on only recently we have had a report saying too much time on such devices can cause Autism.Below is an interesting argument which some 190 scientists have made an appeal regarding this topic.
WHO’s conflicting stance on risk needs strengthening, say 190 scientists
190 scientists from 39 nations submitted an appeal to the United Nations, UN member states and the World Health Organization (WHO) requesting they adopt more protective exposure guidelines for electromagnetic fields (EMF) and wireless technology in the face of increasing evidence of risk. These exposures are a rapidly growing form of environmental pollution worldwide.
Martin Blank, PhD, of Columbia University, says, “International exposure guidelines for electromagnetic fields must be strengthened to reflect the reality of their impact on our bodies, especially on our DNA. The time to deal with the harmful biological and health effects is long overdue. We must reduce exposure by establishing more protective guidelines.”
And Joel Moskowitz, PhD, of University of California, Berkeley, says, “ICNIRP guidelines set exposure standards for high-intensity, short-term, tissue-heating thresholds. These do not protect us from the low-intensity, chronic exposures common today. Scientists signing the Appealrequest that the UN and member nations protect the global human population and wildlife from EMF exposures.”
You decide folks. Source
