The Science Behind the Campaign

Many people are not aware of the harmful effects of radio-frequency waves (RF) and their role in cancer and other serious medical conditions.

The fact that radiofrequency radiation was designated as a Group 2b carcinogen in 2011 by the International Agency for Research on Cancer based on increased incidence of certain types of brain tumours in heavier users of mobile phones was not communicated to the public. At this point, although there was clear human epidemiological evidence for the carcinogenicity of RF, there was a concern that the animal data required for a higher carcinogenic designation was insufficient. Therefore further animal studies were executed.

A 10-year $30 million dollar study from the National Toxicology Program (NTP) funded by the U.S. government, which analysed the effect of mobile phone radiation concluded ‘clear evidence’ of carcinogenesis.

Shortly following this, the highly esteemed Ramazzini Institute corroborated these findings by demonstrating the same types of tumours in response to much lower intensity base station type exposures Together, these two very large scale animal studies confirm the human epidemiological data already demonstrating carcinogenesis and as a result multiple independent experts and teams of experts have made clear that RF should now be designated as a Group 1 ‘known human carcinogen’.

The Scientific Committee on Health, Environmental and Emerging Risks (SCHEER) which provides scientific advice to the European Commission regarding public health, issued a statement identifying 5G impact as “high,” and that “the lack of clear evidence…of exposure guidelines to 5G technology leaves open the possibility of unintended biological consequences.”

“One aspect, for example, that is not well understood today is the unpredictable propagation patterns that could result in unacceptable levels of human exposure to electromagnetic radiation… Increasing long-term R&D efforts on 5G is essential to understand multiple propagation unknowns (e.g. measuring and controlling RF EMF exposure with MIMO at mmWave frequencies).”

The results of this study and International Commission of Non Ionization Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) reports showed the people who spend more than 50 minutes a day using a cell phone could have early dementia or other thermal damage due to the burning of glucose in the brain.
