La Nokia paga 250000 $ per un tumore alle ossa, in Brasile


UNa corte del lavoro brasiliana ha condannato la Nokia al pagamento di 250000 $ ad un tecnico che ha lavorato per 15 anni nella manutenzione delle antenne di telefonia e che ha sviluppato per questo un raro tipo di cancro alle ossa.

Assunto nel 1986 nel 2002 ha accusato dolori alla coscia con diagnosi finale di un raro tipo di sarcoma. E' andato in pensione per invalidità a 37 anni dopo diversi interventi chirurgici .
3 suoi colleghi avevano accusato lo stesso tipo di cancro e sono  morti giovani.

Dopo un primo (solito) giudizio negativo sul nesso causale, grazie alla classificazione IARC ed ad un'analisi della letteratura, il secondo giudizio ha ritenuto la Nokia in difetto di non aver informato sulla pericolosità e messo in condizione I lavoratori di lavorare in sicurezza.



Brazil: NOKIA SHOULD PAY R $ 250 THOUSAND WORKER WHO HAD RARE
CANCER
MRE, Feb 1, 2015 (Google translation)

The Seventh Chamber of the Paraná Regional Labor Court
(TRT-PR) determined payment of compensation to a Curitiba
technician who worked for fifteen years in the maintenance of
telephone towers and developed a rare type of bone cancer. The
antennas were not turned off during the execution of the service.

The company Nokia Solutions and Networks in Brazil
Telecommunications Ltd., formerly Siemens SA, will pay $
250,000 in damages plus annuity corresponding to 50% of final
salary. The decision can still be appealed.
The coach was admitted by the company in August 1986 and for
over 15 years conducted testing services, repairs and
installations in the signal transmission towers of the
company. In 2002, a tumor was found in the worker's right
thigh, which was diagnosed with chondrosarcoma, a rare type of
bone cancer. He underwent several surgeries, but ended retired
due to disability, age 37. Three other co-workers developed
the same type of cancer and died aged 28, 39 and 45 years.
The technical filed a lawsuit against the company at the 15th
Curitiba Court claiming that their health problems could have
been caused by direct contact with the electromagnetic waves
radiated by phone towers.
In the opinion of the judge of first instance was not in the
record sufficient evidence to establish a causal link between
the type of work and the disease, since cancer can have
multiple causes, such as diet and medications, among other
factors.
The worker appealed, arguing that the International Agency for
Research on Cancer (IARC), linked to the World Health
Organization classifies exposure to electromagnetic fields as
possibly carcinogenic to humans.
In their analysis, the judges gave the Seventh Class reason
the employee, noting that an expert report presented
information from the medical literature linking
electromagnetic radiation with cellular and genetic phenomena
that promote cancer. They also understood that the company was
wrong to omit as the prevention and monitoring of risks, in
addition to not have done exposure control of radiation worker.
"Considering the fact or evidence together, it considers that
the work activities developed by the author contributed to the
development of their disease (concausa), leaving configured
concausalidade link. Resta set the guilt of the defendant,
given that not arranged for the work to be developed without
risk to the health of your employee "it said judgment which
ordered the company to pay a lifetime monthly pension plus
punitive damages.

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 !

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

health.

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.

gli studenti brasiliani verranno 'tracciati' con un GPS!

http://www.mainfatti.it/GPS/GPS-in-divise-studenti-Brasile-fra-tracciamento-ed-elettrosmog_043182033.htm


da matti !

non è tanto il ricevitore del segnale GPS (che TUTTI subiscono) che incorporato nel distintivo sarà, immagino, portato alla altezza del cuore, ma penso alla trasmissione (continua?) del segnale sul posizionamento della persona ...!
