startling report of Bioinitiative Review


STUDY: Risks have been played down

HEALTH risks from mobile phone masts and wireless technology are being played down, experts say.

A review published yesterday concludes the electromagnetic impulses the masts transmit can affect the immune system and neurological functions.

This includes memory and sleep patterns, causing brain tumours, cancers and Alzheimer’s.

It says the radiation can have an impact on fertility and metabolism and can cause depression and fatigue.

And there is “little doubt” that exposure causes childhood leukemia, it adds.

Environmental consultant Cindy Sage, one of the authors of the Bioinitiative Review, said: “We think the risks have been downplayed.

“The trend in increasing reports of electrosensitivity is too big to overlook.”

Although the study contains no new science, it is hoped bringing all the evidence on emissions together will force governments to act.

Historic move in Asia and Middle East

In the first move of its kind, the Taiwanese government will dismantle 1,500 mobile phone masts by the end of this year amid fears that radiation from them may damage health. Studies have revealed worrying levels of symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, nausea and dizziness in people living near masts. And the Israeli Knesset has agreed that cellular antennae should no longer be placed in living quarters, including on balconies. Four Israeli cities have banned the erection of any more small antennae for wireless hot spots.
