Conferenza internazionale su Radiofrequenze e Salute segreta ...!

Dal 9 al 12 novembre 2020 si è tenuto una conferenza virtuale sugli effetti delle radiofrequenze sulla salute umana.

Tutto all'insegna della segretezza.

Non è possibile avere la lista dei partecipanti, dei relatori , sono stati disponibili alcune presentazioni.

Si è parlato della seconda fase dello studio del NTP, ma anche di studi tossicologici su animali che sono state avviati in Giappone e Corea i cui protocolli non sono stati resi pubblici. 

I nomi riportati sono personaggi ben impegnati direttamente in ICNIRP ...

Quindi si è trattato un incontro di un 'club' di esperti ,,, a latere di un altro club = ICNIRP 

Public Shut Out of Global
RF Health Briefing

Updates from NTP, Japan, Korea & WHO

November 23, 2020

November 24, 2020

An international briefing on RF health research, known as GLORE 2020, was held online, November 9-12, featuring updates on the second phase of the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) project and the Japanese-Korean partial repeat. The WHO presented a status report on ten ongoing systematic reviews of RF health effects.

Government and industry representatives from Australia, Canada, France, Japan, Korea, New Zealand and the U.S. participated, as did an assortment of academics.

The public and the press were not invited.

GLORE, short for Global Coordination of Research and Health Policy of RF Electromagnetic Fields, holds annual reviews for member states and their guests. This year’s meeting was organized by Health Canada and Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED), formerly known as Industry Canada.

Everything about GLORE 2020 is being kept secret. “The groups organizing this meeting will not make the agenda, attendees list nor the presentations publically available,” ISED’s Josette Gallant told me by e-mail last week. (She did send her “warmest regards.”) GLORE 2020 was a “virtual” meeting held on the Microsoft Teams platform.

The press offices of both the NTP and Health Canada also declined to release any information. Jesse Saffron, an attorney with the NTP’s Office of Communications and Public Liaison, would only say that the meeting was closed. He suggested that I try under the Freedom of Information Act. (My last NTP FOIA request dragged on for more than two years.)

Microwave News has obtained a copy of the agenda (available here) as well as some of the presentations (see below).

GLORE 2020

Among the American participants from outside the government were Frank Barnes of the University of Colorado, Boulder; C.K. Chou, formerly with Motorola and now a consultant based in the San Francisco Bay area; and James Lin, the editor of Bioelectromagnetics and a past member of ICNIRP. In an e-mail exchange, Chou said that he was invited as a representative of the IEEE’s International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety (ICES) to provide an update on IEEE standards.

Also present were Australia’s Rodney Croft, the current chair of ICNIRP, and Joe Wiart, a France Telecom alumnus. Croft briefed the group on the revised ICNIRP exposure guidelines.

Though some sessions were closed in the past, GLORE meetings have never been so shrouded in secrecy. I covered one of the early GLORE meetings (the 8th, in 2004) and posted this report: “Industry Rules RF”.

 NTP RF Phase 2: “Working Out Kinks”

Michael Wyde of the U.S. NTP presented an update on his ongoing RF toxicology project. Phase 1 of the project found “clear evidence” that RF radiation can lead to malignant tumors. Phase 2 is on the search for mechanisms to explain the cancer link. The primary focus is on 3G and 4G, but “potentially” also on 5G, Wyde said.

NTP RF Phase 2

New exposure facilities, designed and built by the IT’IS Foundation in Zurich, have been installed and are in the process of being tested. “We are in the process of working out kinks and gearing up to conduct studies,” Wyde said.

 Details of the Phase 2 studies are in Wyde’s PowerPoint presentation, available here.

Japan and Korea’s “NTP Lite” Project To Begin Soon

The briefings on the Japanese-Korean partial repeat of the NTP RF study revealed that the experiment may begin within a couple of months; at least that’s the current expectation. The project has been dubbed “NTP Lite” because it will be limited to male rats exposed to CDMA cell phone radiation. The same experiment will be run in each country. There were two presentations: one by Japan’s Katsumi Imaida of Kagawa University medical school and one by Korea’s Yeon-Soon Ahn of Yonsei University.

They reported that 28-day validation studies have been completed. The Japanese group found that rats exposed to 4 W/Kg consumed less food and put on less weight during the first half of the experiment, but later recovered during the second half. Rectal probes confirmed that body temperatures did not rise by more than 1ºC.

The protocols for the two-year exposure study are nearing completion, in consultation with the project’s seven-member international advisory committee, which includes Wiart and Wyde, as well as Michael Repacholi. The committee held its second meeting —on Zoom— last month.


RF Systematic Reviews in Environment International

WHO’s Emilie van Deventer offered the following details on the ten systematic reviews on RF health, commissioned by the WHO last year:

• They will be published in a special issue of the Elsevier journal Environment International. The timing is not known, but no earlier than late 2022.

• There were on average three proposals for each of the topics under review, except for heating, which failed to attract any bids in the first round and received only two in the second. See tally on slide below; the x/y numbers in the applications column are those for which there were two rounds of requests for proposals.

• Human cancer studies was the most competitive review with nine proposals.

• van Deventer has appointed a chair, as yet unnamed, for the “Task Group” which will prepare a revision of the RF Environmental Health Criteria (EHC) monograph. The other panel members have not been selected.


van Deventer’s complete PowerPoint presentation is here. She did not respond to a request for comment.

Russia: confronto tra sistema regolatorio delle frequenze per il 5G tra Russia e Mondo

Documento importante prodotto dal Russian National and International Regulatory Framework for Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields 

... che è l'alternativa all ICNIRP ...

con autore il Prof GRIGORIEV ed altri.


 Lo scopo dello studio è quello di effettuare un'analisi comparativa degli standard dei campi elettromagnetici della gamma di radiofrequenza stabiliti per la popolazione, degli approcci alla definizione delle normative sui campi elettromagnetici adottate dai diversi paesi e dalle organizzazioni internazionali

Conclusioni. È stata rilevata una significativa discrepanza nei valori dei limiti dei campi elettromagnetici delle radiofrequenze adottati nei diversi paesi, nello status giuridico dei documenti normativi e nell'ambito della loro regolamentazione. Le differenze nella metodologia di sviluppo, adozione e approvazione delle norme sui campi elettromagnetici, così come nel loro status giuridico, non consentono di adottare le norme sui campi elettromagnetici concordate.

5G penetrazione sotto pelle ridotta, ma pericolosa

Segnalo questo articolo scinetifico pubblicato dalla rivista della associazione di ingnegneri elettronici più grande del Mondo : la IEEE. 

S. Kim and I. Nasim, “Human Electromagnetic Field Exposure in 5G at 28 GHz,” in IEEE Consumer Electronics Magazine, vol. 9, no. 6, pp. 41-48, 1 Nov. 2020, doi: 10.1109/MCE.2019.2956223

"Il SAR è inversamente proporzionale alla profondità di penetrazione, e quindi una penetrazione più bassa che si verifica a 5G produce un assorbimento maggiore".

"L'esempio mostrato in Figura 4 presenta una misurazione del SAR introdotto sulla pelle umana alla distanza di 10 cm da un trasmettitore in un uplink. Esso mostra chiaramente uno scenario in cui la convinzione attuale non è valida; il fatto che un campo elettromagnetico ad alta frequenza non possa penetrare in profondità nella pelle umana non significa che non sia pericoloso. In particolare, sebbene la penetrazione sia limitata solo alla superficie della pelle, il SAR (illustrato come mappa termica nella Figura 4) può essere più alto all'interno dell'area concentrata, il che può causare problemi di salute successivi come il riscaldamento della pelle".

"In questo articolo, il primo caso studio ha dimostrato quanto l'esposizione ai campi elettromagnetici è causata in un sistema a 5G rispetto a 4G e 3.9G".

il Health Council Olandese conclude il suo rapporto raccomandando al governo un approccio cauto verso il 5G


Un comitato consultivo del Consiglio per la salute dei Paesi Bassi raccomanda un "approccio cauto" all'esposizione alle radiazioni 5G.

Il comitato consiglia inoltre di non utilizzare la banda di frequenza a 26 GHz (onde millimetriche) "fino a quando non sono stati studiati i potenziali rischi per la salute".

Il nuovo rapporto consultivo, 5G e salute, è stato originariamente pubblicato a settembre con un sommario esecutivo in inglese.

Qui c'è l'intero documento di 131 pagg e che riporta ben 807 riferimenti 



5G: nel telefono cellulare si stanno inserendo dei 'radar' per captare se c'è vicino il corpo umano per cercare di ridurre gli effetti ?!


Leggendo un recente articolo su una rivista molto tecnica  che ha smontato iPhone12 per analizzare la presenza delle nuove aggiuntive antenne per il 5G e quindi simulare il loro impatto sulla testa, sulla mano sul corpo dell'utente ... 

pur nella complessità dell'articolo è per me ben lampante come è molto ben chiaro ai produttori che stanno mettendo in commercio una 'gran brutta bestia' attraverso il quale passa una grande energia finalizzata al beamforming sia nella stazione radiobase che nel singolo telefono.

Le loro conclusioni 

Essendo profondamente coinvolto in ogni aspetto del lancio del 5G, in particolare il design RF, Qualcomm continuerà a occuparsi del controllo della potenza RF per le antenne con assorbitori non intenzionali nelle vicinanze. Una rapida ricerca di brevetti ha rivelato un'applicazione pubblicata di recente intitolata "Radar for Detecting Human Body Part". Questa applicazione pubblicata di recente rivela l'approccio suggerito dallo smontaggio di SystemPlus: 

radar per rilevare la vicinanza a una parte del corpo umano per consentire all'apparecchiatura di determinare se è sicuro trasmettere un segnale RF.

Attacchi 'misteriosi' ai diplomatici USA: sono più di uno o due ... CIA ha tenuto secretato ... gli effetti si chiamano elettrosensibilità  

Si sta rendendo noto l'efficacia delle azioni di offesa contro le ambasciate (e famiglie) americane in Cina, come anche a Cuba, ma che fanno ricordare il primo caso a Mosca di decenni fa, grazie a 'cannoni' che emettono radiofrequenze.  

 Mark Lenzi e sua moglie avevano vertigini, problemi di sonno e mal di testa, ei loro figli si svegliavano con il naso sanguinante - sintomi che pensavano potessero derivare dallo smog a Guangzhou, in Cina, dove il signor Lenzi lavorava per il Dipartimento di Stato. Ma l'inquinamento atmosferico non poteva spiegare la sua improvvisa perdita di memoria, compresi i nomi dimenticati degli strumenti di lavoro.

Quello che nel 2018 era iniziato come strani suoni e sintomi tra più di una dozzina di funzionari americani e i loro familiari in Cina si è trasformato in un mistero diplomatico che abbraccia più paesi e che coinvolge speculazioni su armi segrete ad alta tecnologia e attacchi stranieri.

Una delle domande più grandi è se i funzionari dell'amministrazione Trump credano che Lenzi e altri diplomatici in Cina abbiano sperimentato la stessa misteriosa afflizione di dozzine di diplomatici e spie presso l'ambasciata americana a Cuba nel 2016 e nel 2017, che divenne nota come L'Avana. Sindrome. I dipendenti americani nei due paesi hanno riferito di aver sentito suoni strani, seguiti da mal di testa, vertigini, visione offuscata e perdita di memoria.

Al solito hanno targato come disturbo psicologico da stress ... ma un centro medico incaricato ha refertato che c'è stato un danno al cervello da fonte esterna.  

U.S. Diplomats and Spies Battle Trump Administration Over Suspected Attacks

American officials in China, Cuba and Russia say U.S. agencies are concealing the true extent of the episodes, leaving colleagues vulnerable to hostile actions abroad.

By Ana SwansonEdward Wong and Julian E. Barnes, New York Times, Oct. 19, 2020

WASHINGTON — The strange sound came at night: a crack like a marble striking the floor of the apartment above them.

Mark Lenzi and his wife had lightheadedness, sleep issues and headaches, and their children were waking up with bloody noses — symptoms they thought might be from the smog in Guangzhou, China, where Mr. Lenzi worked for the State Department. But air pollution could not explain his sudden memory loss, including forgetting names of work tools.

What began as strange sounds and symptoms among more than a dozen American officials and their family members in China in 2018 has turned into a diplomatic mystery spanning multiple countries and involving speculation about secret high-tech weapons and foreign attacks.

One of the biggest questions centers on whether Trump administration officials believe that Mr. Lenzi and other diplomats in China experienced the same mysterious affliction as dozens of diplomats and spies at the American Embassy in Cuba in 2016 and 2017, which came to be known as Havana Syndrome. American employees in the two countries reported hearing strange sounds, followed by headaches, dizziness, blurred vision and memory loss.

But the government’s treatment of the episodes has been radically different. The State Department, which oversaw the cases, has produced inconsistent assessments of patients and events, ignored outside medical diagnoses and withheld basic information from Congress, a New York Times investigation found.

In Cuba, the Trump administration withdrew most of its staff members from the embassy and issued a travel warning, saying U.S. diplomats had experienced “targeted attacks.” President Trump expelled 15 Cuban diplomats from Washington and started an independent review, though Cuba denied any involvement.

The administration took a softer approach with China. In May 2018, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who was the C.I.A. director during the Cuba events, told lawmakers that the medical details of one American official who had fallen ill in China were “very similar and entirely consistent” with the syndrome in Cuba. The administration evacuated more than a dozen federal employees and some of their family members.

The State Department soon retreated, labeling what happened in China as “health incidents.” While the officers in Cuba were placed on administrative leave for rehabilitation, those in China initially had to use sick days and unpaid leave, some officers and their lawyers say. And the State Department did not open an investigation into what happened in China.

The administration has said little about the events in China and played down the idea that a hostile power could be responsible. But similar episodes have been reported by senior C.I.A. officers who visited the agency’s stations overseas, according to three current and former officials and others familiar with the events.

That includes Moscow, where Marc Polymeropoulos, a C.I.A. officer who helped run clandestine operations in Russia and Europe, experienced what he believes was an attack in December 2017. Mr. Polymeropoulos, who was 48 at the time, suffered severe vertigo in his hotel room in Moscow and later developed debilitating migraine headaches that forced him to retire.

The cases involving C.I.A. officers, none of which have been publicly reported, are adding to suspicions that Russia carried out the attacks worldwide. Some senior Russia analysts in the C.I.A., officials at the State Department and outside scientists, as well as several of the victims, see Russia as the most likely culprit given its history with weapons that cause brain injuries and its interest in fracturing Washington’s relations with Beijing and Havana.

The C.I.A. director remains unconvinced, and State Department leaders say they have not settled on a cause.

Critics say disparities in how the officers were treated stemmed from diplomatic and political considerations, including the president’s desire to strengthen relations with Russia and win a trade deal with China.

China diplomats began reporting strange symptoms in spring 2018, as U.S. officials stationed there were trying to coax their Chinese counterparts into a trade deal that Mr. Trump had promised to deliver. The president was also looking to Beijing for help in clinching nuclear talks with North Korea and consistently lavished praise on Xi Jinping, China’s authoritarian leader.

According to half a dozen American officials, State Department leaders realized that pursuing a similar course of action as they had in Cuba — including evacuating missions in China — could cripple diplomatic and economic relationships.

With Cuba, Mr. Trump sought to reverse President Barack Obama’s détente. Jeffrey DeLaurentis, the chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Havana during the events, said the Trump administration’s move to withdraw staff members “dovetailed fortuitously with their objective on Cuba.”

Those who fled China have spent more than two years fighting to obtain the same benefits given to the victims in Cuba and others attacked by foreign powers. The battles have complicated their recovery and prompted government retaliation that might have permanently damaged their careers, according to interviews with more than 30 government officials, lawyers and doctors.

U.S. lawmakers have criticized what they call secrecy and inaction from the State Department and are pressing the agency to release a study it received in August from the National Academies of Sciences, which examined potential causes of the episodes.

“These injuries, and subsequent treatment by the U.S. government, have been a living nightmare for these dedicated public servants and their families,” said Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Democrat of New Hampshire. “It’s obvious how a U.S. adversary would have much to gain from the disorder, distress and division that has followed.”

Dr. David A. Relman, a Stanford University professor who is the chairman of the National Academies of Sciences committee that examined the cases, said it was “disheartening and immensely frustrating” that the State Department had refused to share the report with the public or Congress “for reasons that elude us.”

In a statement, the department said: “The safety and security of U.S. personnel, their families and U.S. citizens is our top priority. The U.S. government has not yet determined a cause or an actor.”

Mr. Lenzi said he had sued the department for disability discrimination, and the U.S. Office of Special Counsel is pursuing two investigations into the State Department’s conduct.

The Office of Special Counsel declined to comment. But in an April 23 letter viewed by The Times, special counsel officials said investigators had “found a substantial likelihood of wrongdoing” by the State Department, though the inquiry continues.

“This is a deliberate, high-level cover-up,” Mr. Lenzi said. “They have hung us out to dry.”

The situation has been complicated by the fact that American officials and scientists still debate whether the symptoms resulted from an attack.

Many diplomats, C.I.A. officers and scientists suspect a weapon producing microwave radiation damaged the victims’ brains. But some scientists and government officials argue it was a psychological illness that spread in the stressful environment of foreign missions. Some point to chemical agents, like pesticides.

The Trump administration has not clarified its view or said exactly how many people were affected.

At least 44 people in Cuba and 15 in China were evaluated or treated at the Center for Brain Injury and Repair at the University of Pennsylvania. Others went elsewhere. At least 14 Canadian citizens in Havana say they have suffered similar symptoms.

Doctors at the University of Pennsylvania declined to discuss details but dismissed the idea of a psychological illness, saying the patients they treated had sustained a brain injury from an external source.

Some senior officials at the State Department and former intelligence officers said they believed Russia played a role. The country’s intelligence operatives have seeded violence around the world, poisoning enemies in Britain and fueling assaults on U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.

During the Cold War, the Soviet Union bombarded the American Embassy in Moscow with microwaves. In a 2014 document, the National Security Agency said it had intelligence on a hostile country using a high-powered microwave weapon to “bathe a target’s living quarters in microwaves,” causing nervous system damage. The name of the country was classified, but people familiar with the document said it referred to Russia.

Several of the cases against the C.I.A. affected senior officers who were traveling overseas to discuss plans to counter Russian covert operations with partner intelligence agencies, according to two people familiar with the matter. Some C.I.A. analysts believe Moscow was trying to derail that work.

Mr. Polymeropoulos declined to discuss his experiences in Moscow, but he criticized how the U.S. government had handled its injured personnel. He is pushing the agency to allow him to go to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, the hospital that has treated some of those who were affected in Cuba.

Some top American officials insist on seeing more evidence before accusing Russia. Gina Haspel, the C.I.A. director, has acknowledged that Moscow had the intent to harm operatives, but she is not convinced it was responsible or that attacks occurred, two American officials said.

Nicole de Haay, a C.I.A. spokeswoman, said the “C.I.A.’s first priority has been and continues to be the welfare of all of our officers.”

Maria Zakharova, a Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman, has called any insinuation of Moscow’s involvement “absolutely absurd and bizarre.” A spokesman for the Russian Embassy in Washington said the purported attacks were most likely a case of “mass hysteria.”

Mr. Lenzi, who has an extensive background working in the former Soviet Union, said classified material pointed to the country that had carried out the attacks, but the State Department denied him access to the documents.

Top officials “know exactly which country” was responsible, Mr. Lenzi said, adding that it was not Cuba or China but another country “which the secretary of state and president do not want to confront.”

The first person to fall ill in China, a Commerce Department officer named Catherine Werner, who lived next door to Mr. Lenzi, experienced vomiting, nausea, headaches and dizziness for months before she was flown to the United States in April 2018.

According to a whistle-blower complaint filed by Mr. Lenzi, the State Department took action only after Ms. Werner’s visiting mother, an Air Force veteran, used a device to record high levels of microwave radiation in her daughter’s apartment. The mother also fell ill.

That May, American officials held a meeting to reassure U.S. officers in Guangzhou that Ms. Werner’s sickness appeared to be an isolated case. But Mr. Lenzi, a diplomatic security officer, wrote in a memo to the White House that his supervisor insisted on using inferior equipment to measure microwaves in Ms. Werner’s apartment, calling it a “check-the-box exercise.”

“They didn’t find anything, because they didn’t want to find anything,” Mr. Lenzi said.

He sent an email warning American diplomats in China that they might be in danger. His superiors sent a psychiatrist to evaluate him and gave him an official “letter of admonishment,” Mr. Lenzi said.

Months after he began reporting symptoms of brain injury, he and his family were medically evacuated to the University of Pennsylvania.

Other officers in China were experiencing similar symptoms. Robyn Garfield, a Commerce Department officer, was evacuated from Shanghai with his wife and two children in June 2018.

Doctors at the University of Pennsylvania told Mr. Garfield that his injuries were similar to those of Americans in Cuba, but the State Department’s medical bureau said they stemmed from a 17-year-old baseball injury, he wrote in a Facebook group for American diplomats in March 2019.

The State Department labeled only one China officer as having the “full constellation” of symptoms consistent with the Cuba cases: Ms. Werner, the first evacuee. In an internal letter, the department said 15 others in Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing had some symptoms and clinical findings “similar to those” in Cuba, but it had not determined they were suffering from “Havana syndrome.”

Doctors at the University of Pennsylvania said they did not share individual brain scans with the State Department, so the government lacked necessary information to rule out brain injuries in China.

“It seems to me and my doctors that State does not want any additional cases from China,” Mr. Garfield wrote, “regardless of the medical findings.”
