£11bn smart meter plans 'risk fiasco'

MPs warn only energy suppliers will benefit

Consumers will benefit from smart meters only if they understand the opportunity to reduce their energy bills and change their behaviour. So far the evidence on whether they will do so has been inconclusive. Otherwise, the only people who will benefit are the energy suppliers.

How Much Sense do Ecological/Medical Limit Values for Protecting Human Health from Environmental Harm Make?

http://www.heraldrsias.org/online/2011/1/195/


A call for Biologically based exposure standard limits

January 17, 2012

How Much Sense do Ecological/Medical Limit Values for Protecting Human Health from Environmental Harm Make?

Originally published in Russian (2011)

By Dr Karl Hecht

Berlin, Germany

This paper was originally published in 2011 in the Russian Journal Vestnik by Dr. Hecht in order to encourage the members of the Russian section of the International Academy of Sciences, ''to engage in united activities against the pollution of the environment by toxins, radiation, and noise, and to demand limit values, that are not set for individual harmful agents, but based on the complex effects of toxins, radiation and noise.''

Abstract

Over the past 50 years, a rapid increase in chemical harmful agents (toxins) for the environment in air, soil, water, and food, as well as environmental pollution by noise and microwaves (electrosmog) has been noted worldwide. The limit values set for individual harmful agents to protect the public health in different countries are critically evaluated. The conclusion is reached that these limit values do not always offer the necessary protection of human health because industry and politics alike often follow the principle of putting economy before health. Therefore, realistic, scientifically based limit values ought to be strenuously pursued in order to achieve a protection against environmentally caused diseases.

UW scientist Dr. Henry Lai never set out to link cell phones to cancer, but his work and efforts to discredit him, suggest that he was on to something. Ironically, with funding for independent research virtually nonexistent, we may never know for sure.
