Il cellulare può produrre esplosione al distributore di benzina

qui vi riporto un articolo di un giornale indiano in cui un rappresentante dei vigili del fuoco spiega la dinamica dei fatti che ha visto una donna indiana provocare un incendio mentre stava facendo rifornimento alla pompa di benzina:  in quell'istante il telefono cellulare, che aveva in mano, ha squillato !!!
Ustioni per oltre il 60% del corpo. 

Quindi i cellulari fanno male ... anche per effetti a brevissimo ...

Repacholi scrive anche un libro per confutare IARC

Michael Repacholi (padre putativo di Paolo Vecchia & Co.) scrive ora un libro per dire che gli studi epidemiologici che sono alla base della decisione dello IARC/WHO di classificare le radiofrequenze come POSSIBILI CANCEROGENI sono viziati alla fonte!

Peccato che ben 29 massimi esperti nel 2011  dopo una scannamento (spero solo dialettico) di 3-4 giorni sono arrivati a quella conclusione, quale compromesso alla richiesta di classificazione come PROBABILI cancerogeni ...

La associazione delle società telefoniche australiane ha immediatamente lanciato un plauso !
Mah!  chissà come mai ... e chi avrà finanziato il libro ? è  una domanda aperta ... non ho risposte ...




Book on Mobile Phone and Public Health launched
APN News, Dec 2, 2013
Mumbai : Former WHO expert on electromagnetic fields Prof. Michael Repacholi on Monday
released a book titled DSCN8822 300x194 Book on Mobile Phone and Public Health launched
“Mobile Phones and Public Health – Myths and Reality”. It covers articles of eminent scientists and doctors on concerns of public health arising from mobile towers and handsets.
Published by New Delhi based Har-Anand Publications, the book edited by Mr Ravi V.S. Prasad dispels the notion that mobile phone use causes health risks.
Prof. Repacholi, who was the Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) project coordinator for the World Health Organisation (WHO) said, high quality studies have not established that use of mobile phones or mobile towers  causes any health risks.
“From all the high quality studies that have been published and the reviews of all the studies by international and national public health authorities, it can be safely concluded that it has not been established that mobile phone use causes or is associated with any health risks,” he said at the launch of the book.
“WHO has recommended more research related to the possible effects of RF (Radio Frequency) fields on people and some studies have already been completed showing no effect of mobile phone use on human health,” he added.
Prof. Repacholi is also the former chairman of Germany-based International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) and a contributor of the book.
The book contains articles from well-known scientific writers like Prof. Vasant Natarajan, Prof. Susanta Sen, Dr. KS Parthasarathy, Dr. Jack Rowley and Dr. Bhavin Jankharia amongst others.
Mr. Ravi V.S.Prasad is the editor of this book. He holds advanced degrees in engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in USA and Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur.He is a consultant and columnist in telecommunications and information technology in India.
“Scientific studies from all over the world have failed to prove any adverse effects from use of mobile phones and towers. Their energy emissions are one-thousandth of the energy from sunlight, and so can’t impact on health.

EME Update
Mike Repacholi smallThe former head of the World Health Organization’s research on mobile phones has said the 2011 classification of wireless signals as a ‘possible carcinogen’ by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) was flawed because they relied too heavily on human population studies which are prone to bias and errors.
 “We all know the many problems associated with epidemiological [population] studies. They are prone to many biases and have serious problems assessing a person’s exposure, especially to EMF,” Dr Mike Repacholi from the University of Rome said in a recent guest blog.
 
“We are all living in a sea of EMF so it is difficult to distinguish between the exposed and control groups. Because of this, my concern is that there is an over-reliance on epidemiology studies.”
 
Because animal studies can be conducted with more precision, public health authorities should be more careful in their relative assessments of the evidence, Dr Repacholi said.
           
IARC defined the evidence in two human population studies, which included these known biases, as ‘limited’ – which automatically put mobile phones in the ‘possible’ category despite the fact that there was no consistent support from animal and cell studies.
 
“In my opinion the definition that IARC uses for this classification is flawed,” Dr Repacholi said.
 
Dr Repacholi, former leader of the WHO EMF project and Chairman Emeritus of the International Council for Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), is one of the world’s leading authorities on health and safety issues related to mobile telecommunications.
 
“If epidemiology studies show an effect but overwhelmingly the animal studies don’t, then the assessment should be that there is a problem with the epidemiology studies,” Dr Repacholi said.
 
There is also widespread misunderstanding about the ‘weight of evidence’ approach used for health risk assessments, Dr Repacholi wrote in the blog.
 
“Weight of evidence is NOT counting the number of positive and negative studies and then concluding there are more positive study results than negative, or vice versa,” Dr Repacholi said.
 
A true weight of evidence approach requires that each study, both positive and negative, be evaluated for quality, he said.
 
“Quality assessment criteria for all study types are well known and studies can be given more or less weight, where those studies that conducted experiments correctly according to these criteria are given more weight or believability in the outcome, than those deemed low quality,” Dr Repacholi said.
 
“All ‘blue-ribbon’ reviews use this approach. WHO has used this approach for over 50 years and it is a very well accepted, tried and true method for assessing health risks from any biological, chemical or physical agent.”
 
Finally, Dr Repacholi said in comparison to leading health authorities; the BioInitiative report did not conduct a proper weight of evidence assessment.

“If one assesses the quality of studies referenced in the
BioInitiative report it becomes very obvious they almost all fit into the low quality category that have not been replicated. It is very apparent that the authors of the BioInitiative report do not quote leading public health authorities such as WHO or the HPA in their review because they only want to summarise any study that supports their opinion and omit studies that don’t.”

Esempio di uso di articoli giornalistici "scientifici" falsi per dire che 'tutto va bene' !


E' il caso di un articolo giornalistico indiano di un oncologo indiano che conclude che c'è un nuovo studio del WHO che ammorbidisce le conclusione dello IARC del 2011 (radiofrequenze quali possibili cancerogeni) ...

Approfondendo,  si scopre che c'è stato solamente un aggiornamento di 'domande e risposte' nel sito del WHO sul tema di effetti sulla salute dei cellulari e delle antenne.  Qui, oltre a richiamare la classificazione del 2011 arriva a  conclusioni condivisibili :

“While an increased risk of brain tumours from the use of mobile phones is not established, the increasing use of mobile phones and the lack of data for mobile phone use over time periods longer than 15 years warrant further research of mobile phone use and brain cancer risk. In particular, with the recent popularity of mobile phone use among younger people, and therefore a potentially longer lifetime of exposure, WHO has promoted further research on this group and is currently assessing the health impact of RF fields on all studied endpoints.”

ovvero  anche se l'aumento del rischio del tumore al cervello non è stato stabilito con certezza , la mancanza di dati epidemiologici per un uso superiore a 15 anni e l'aumento dell'uso del cellulari a fasce di età sempre più basse,  WHO sollecita una ulteriore ricerca in particolare sui giovani.   Ma non dice che tutto va bene ...!!!

Ma nel frattempo il giornale ha svolto il suo compito, anche perché ciò che passa nella totalità dei lettori veloci è il TITOLO dell'articolo e non il suo contenuto

La Corte Suprema Indiana conferma la proibizione di antenne vicino a scuole ed ospedali

Recntemente la Corte Suprema dell'India ha bocciato il ricorso fatto dalle società di telefonia contro la decisione presa da organi giudiziali dello stato di Rajasthan.

Interessante che questo provvedimento è stato preso in contrasto (e bacchettando) il Governo Centrale che risulta 'bloccato' dal 2010 su questo tema !!!





JAIPUR: The Supreme Court has came down heavily on the installation of overhead mobile towers on schools buildings.
Dismissing a special leave petition filed by Cellular Operator Association of India (COAI), the division bench of Justice H L Dattu and Justice Chandramauli Prasad upheld the interim order by Rajasthan high court asking mobile companies to remove towers installed over schools and near hospitals.
"Let the children be safe. Radiation does affect them. Let the towers be removed," observed Justice Dattu.
"India is the only country where schools have overhead mobile towers. This can't be permitted,"said Justice Prasad.
Senior advocate Mukul Rohtagi said the Central government is seized of the matters and therefore, the interim order prejudices the issue. "There is no question of prejudice. We can see the seriousness of the central government with the matter being considered since 2010 and no outcome so far. But we can not allow children to suffer," the court observed.
COAI said if HC was permitted to pass such orders arbitrarily asking cellular companies to remove towers from schools and near hospitals, it will hit connectivity and consumers will be adversely affected.
Rohtagi contended that the towers have also been installed in colonies where the number of residents is much more than a few hundred students in a school and unless a uniform policy of installation is not framed by government the HC order passed last month needed to be stayed.

Il Governo Indiano lancia un programma di ricerca sugli effetti delle antenne

Il Governo ha lanciato un programma di ricerca presso un proprio Ente di ricerca  Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB) con l'obiettivo di studiare i possibili effetti delle RF sulla salute umana, alla luce di conclusioni di IARC ma anche di Boinitiative Report, contestate da altri Organismi internazionali


India: Government seeks research proposals to study mobile radiation
Economic Times (PTI), Jun 14, 2013

Government has called for research proposals to study the possible impact of electromagnetic frequency radiation on humans and living organisms.

NEW DELHI: Amid concerns over radiation from cell phone towers, government on Friday called for research proposals to study the possible impact of electromagnetic frequency radiation on humans and living organisms.

The call for proposals by the Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB) comes in the wake of conflicting reports on the impact of cell tower radiation with a section claiming that it caused illness including cancer while others saying that there was no definitive finding to support it.

The research and development would study the possible impact of electromagnetic frequency radiation exposure from mobile towers and handsets on humans, living organisms, flora and fauna, and environment.

The study, to be funded in campaign mode, is a joint initiative supported by the SERB, a statutory body under the Department of Science and Technology, and the Department of Telecommunications.

The researchers are expected to study the impact of electromagnetic frequency radiation (EMF-r) in the non-ionising band -- 300 MHz to 3 GHz -- on biota and ecology.

The researchers have been asked to focus on impact of EMF-r on any aspect --physiological, genetic, ecological, growth, development-- at any level including cellular, sub-cellular, molecular, sub-molecular in any model system including humans, plants, animals, birds, fishes and microbes.

Studies on the aspects of epidemiology, social behaviour and safety are also within the ambit of the research.

There have been reports in a section of the media about the purported ill-effects of EMF-r from cell towers and mobile handsets.

Last year, the Department of Telecommunication had lowered the permissible radiation limit for mobile towers to 0.45 watts per sq metre -- which is one-tenth of the ICNIRP guidelines -- for Indian operators.

Also, the government had made it mandatory the display of specific absorption rate (SAR) -- the amount of radio waves absorbed by the body tissue when a phone is in use-- on mobile handsets.

The rules state that cellphones can be imported and sold in India only if the SAR level is below 1.6 watts per kg (W/kg) which is below the European norms of SAR upto 2 W/kg.


Last year the BioInitiative Report 2012 (BIR-2012) on standards for electromagnetic radiation claimed that the evidence for risks to health from wireless technologies and electromagnetic fields (EMFs) has substantially increased since 2007.

The studies alleged a link between cell phone radiation and brain tumours.

However, agencies such as the World Health Organisation, UK Health Protection Agency and the International Commission on Non Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) do not support the conclusions.

Interessante strategia per opporsi ad un ripetitore

è quella che hanno approntato dei cittadini indiani  che hanno chiesto alla Corte Suprema di richiedere alla compagnia telefonica di dare dimostrazione scientifica dalla quale  risulti  con assoluta certezza che le radiofrequenze non sono dannose alla salute

Riduzione dei limiti decisi dal Governo Indiano

Il Governo Indiano ha deciso di ridurre di un fattore 10 i limiti di esposizione alle radiofrequenze emesse da stazioni radiobase.
Nell'articolo si parla di passare da ca. 60 V/m ai 6 V/m.

Notare che in questi giorni si parla che l'Italia ha limiti troppo restrittivi: l'India, con grave ritardo arriva ora ai 6 V/m ...

sabato 12 maggio 2012

Il Governo Indiano decide di ridurrere del 90% i limiti di esposizione di RF

 Il decreto è relativo alle emissioni prodotte dalle stazioni radiobase.

Comunque,
da quello che sono riuscito a capire il limite dovrebbe essere pari a 0,45 W/metroquadrato (x 900 MHz) e 0,9 W/metroquestrato per 1800 MHz.
Sono comunque valori più alti dei limiti presenti in Italia e che si vogliono ammattere ...

Infatti 0,45W/metroquadrato = 13 V/m ca
           0,9                               =  18 V/m ca.
