May/June issue): (Repacholi wanted to provoke comments - I hope

Principle Now Revoked
June 5, 2003 - The World Health Organization has decided
not to invoke
the precautionary principle for electromagnetic fields (EMFs),
Michael Repacholi has told Microwave News.

its workshop on the precautionary principle that there is

A proposal from the IEEE's International Committee on Electromagnetic
Safety to relax the limits for mobile phone radiation has
come in for
criticism. The May/June issue explains why.
Exposure to power-frequency magnetic fields at work increased
prostate cancer among utility workers.
The U.K. government has announced an $8 million long-term
study of the
possible health effects of radiation from TETRA digital radios,
police throughout the country will soon be using.
In the U.K., Dr. David de Pomerai of the University of Nottingham
shown that very weak microwave radiation can change the shape
proteins, prompting them to clump together or form long strands
fibrils. De Pomerai argues that these changes in turn trigger
production of heat shock proteins, previously reported by
his and other labs.

Exposure to microwave radiation enhances the aggregation

albumin in vitro in a time- and temperature-dependent manner.
Microwave radiation also promotes amyloid fibril formation

Limited denaturation of cellular proteins could explain our
observation that modest heat-shock responses are induced by
exposure in Caenorhabditis elegans. We also show that heat-shock
responses both to heat and microwaves are suppressed after
interference ablating heat-shock factor function.

fear over police masts
A Cornish MP is urging the government to carry out an investigation
the effects new communication masts may have on people's health.
More than 200 masts planned for the West Country are part
of a national
network which will improve radio links for the emergency services.
But there has been widespread opposition to the proposed
sites in Devon and Cornwall.
Residents say they are concerned that the microwave communication
is not safe.
Opposition has been so widespread that the network, due to
and Cornwall this month, is now facing severe delays.
North Cornwall MP Paul Tyler said that he was concerned about
that about 200 police had reported sick in trials of the new
He has asked Home Secretary David Blunkett to reveal the
medical data which proves they are safe.
He said: "I have been concerned for some time about
the possible effects
from the masts on local residents.
"If it's having an effect on the officers, it may well
be having an
effect on the public too."
Police say the masts pose no known risks to human health
and will be in
place by 2005.
Chief Inspector Denis Calver, the officer in charge of the
Cornwall, said the force had been surprised by the public's
He said: "There was no opposition to the first mobile
phone masts and
this system works in very much the same sort of way.
"We don't like being in conflict with the public and
sometimes there is
misinformation and misunderstanding."
He added: "There are some very extremist and unproven
the impact of radiation on people, but the overwhelming weight
scientific evidence refutes that."

ES Symptoms - Like Evidence required
I am from Australia.
I suffer from:-
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
All the above (though at different stages) was initailly
exposure to a mobile phone base station antenna over a duration
minutes. I was within 6 - 8 meters most of the time of the
a very short while I was closer. And later trying to work
(with computers & on phone calls for long hours &
with mobile phones in
My current ES Symptoms vary.
I am affected by:-
CRT Computer Monitor's
The earpeice of a standard telephone
22kV & above power lines
Typical symptoms are:-
Pressure pain throughout head, particularly around the temple
Tingling sensation all over head
Dizzy & spaced out feeling
slight balance defect
Headpain (unlike normal headache)
can't think clearly
There is also sometimes labarinyth symptoms.
Can anybody who has similar symptoms or anybody who has research
duplicates or can explain these symptoms please e-mail me.
I would be
VERY PLEASED to hear from you. I am in the process of a health
possible court action & need all the evidence I can get.
I've been told
to see a pychirchirst also, so I need good hard evidence that
ES is not
an immaginary pych illness.
PLEASE E-MAIL ME: My future depends upon it. I had to give
up my work
some years ago due to my symptoms.
Thanking you kindly.
