* Catania resolution (22/9/02)

Tramčs per Klaus Rudolph (Citizens' Initiative Omega)

September 2002

The Scientists at the International Conference "State of the Research on Electromagnetic Fields - Scientific and Legal Issues", organized by ISPESL*, the University of Vienna, and the City of Catania, held in Catania (Italy) on September 13th - 14th, 2002, agree to the following:

1. Epidemiological and in vivo and in vitro experimental evidence demonstrates the existence for electromagnetic field (EMF) induced effects, some of which can be adverse to health.

2. We take exception to arguments suggesting that weak (low intensity) EMF cannot interact with tissue.

3. There are plausible mechanistic explanations for EMF-induced effects which occur below present ICNIRP and IEEE guidelines and exposure recommendations by the EU.

4. The weight of evidence calls for preventive strategies based on the precautionary principle. At times the precautionary principle may involve prudent avoidance and prudent use.

5. We are aware that there are gaps in knowledge on biological and physical effects, and health risks related to EMF, which require additional independent research.

6. The undersigned scientists agree to establish an international scientific commission to promote research for the protection of public health from EMF and to develop the scientific basis and strategies for assessment, prevention, management and communication of risk, based on the precautionary principle.

Clause (19) of the insurance policy subscribed by Airtel ( known also as VODAFONE ) excludes any legal responsibilities with regard to "personal damages, illness, disability of any type, death, mental illness, anguish , mental or physical pain, mental deterioration or mental or physical disorder or any mental or physical disability or symptoms caused or said to have been caused by or attributed to the continuous use of mobile telephones".

In this clause it is clearly recognized by the insurance companies that the radiation emitted by the mobile telephone is a BAD RISK FACTOR and are not prepared to cover in their policy YET people are expected to risk their health to make these telephone companies rich. This is totally unacceptable.

Politicians and law makers who are ultimately responsible  for this terrible state of affairs should remember that this situation can eventually cause our social security system to collapse as hospitals will not be able to cope with the demands for  treatment of the various sorts of  diseases which are now beginning to crop up due to the activities of these telephone companies.
