La Corte costituzionale Brasiliana impone una riduzione dei limiti di esposizione ai tralicci della alta tensione

Dopo una vertenza legale intentata da comitati di cittadini di SanPaolo contro una società elettrica , alla fine la Corte Costituzionale ha sentenziato di ridurre il limite di esposizione a 1 microTesta.

NB che in Italia c'è 10 microT con 3 microT per I nuovi impianti.

E stiamo parlando di una delle maggiori potenze economiche mondiali del grippo del BRICS, quindi ossessionate dal mito dell'incremento che PIL, anno per anno e quindi della necessità di avere le risorse sempre a minor prezzo, come la energia elettrica !

Notizia importante

The Brazilian Judiciary determined to reduce the level of electromagnetic pollution generated by

power lines to standard adopted by Swiss law (1.0 microtesla).

Two associations of residents in Sao Paulo — the largest city of Brazil — proposed the action.

The plaintiff has pleaded to not be exposed to electromagnetic fields incompatible with the human


The electromagnetic fields generated by power lines that cross these areas is 10 times greater than

the level determined by the court. The judgment of the Court of State of Sao Paulo (Tribunal de

Justica de Sao Paulo) has determined that the concessionaire of electric power reduces the

electromagnetic field generated by power lines that pass through these neighborhoods.

The decision applied the provisions of the Brazilian Federal Constitution — which declare the

protection of health and the balanced environment — and the precautionary principle contained in

the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (1992), also known as the Rio

Summit, which intended to protect the population against damage to health and the environment.

Judge Renato Nalini, who has several matters published on the protection to the environment,

pronounced the majority opinion. It recognized "the great possibility of the electromagnetic field

of low frequency to be carcinogenic agent in human beings".

The opinion, which widely examined the international research and the pioneering book on the

subject in Brazil, written by Elza Boiteux, Professor of University of Sao Paulo (Universidade de

Sao Paulo — USP) and Fernando Boiteux, concluded: "obligation of the concessionaire of electric

power in reducing the electromagnetic field of the power line to 1.0 μT (one microtesla)." Martin

Blank has participated at the public hearing to explain the risk of electromagnetic fields to human

health based on his research about this subject for over thirty years. His last published book about

is Overpowered (2014).

This judgment puts the Brazilian Judiciary at the same level of others international courts in

defense of the environment and shows the relevance of the research on the risks of

electromagnetic fields.

The concessionaire of electric power filed an appeal to the Brazilian Constitutional Court

(Supremo Tribunal Federal). The Justice Rapporteur designated a public hearing (took place on

March 6th, 7th and 8th, 2013) to consult experts on non-ionizing radiation, public health,

consumers and other interested sectors of the society.

The Brazilian Supreme Court has not decided to take the case yet.
