Ten years ago, out of concern for the health of their fellow man, doctors warned their colleagues, the public and those responsible for health care and politics about electrosmog with a petition called the ‘Freiburger Appeal’. Their appeal, that urgently warned against the dangers of wireless transmission radiation (electrosmog) has been translated into many languages and has since then been supported by more than 1,000 doctors and world-wide more than 36,000 signatories.
Doctors of the „Kompetenzinitiative zum Schutz von Mensch, Umwelt und Demokratie e.V.“ (Competence Initiative for the Protection of Humanity, Environment and Democracy) have once again renewed their efforts with an ‘International Doctor’s Appeal’ because they observed an increase in symptoms in relation to ever increasing closer proximity to the burden of wireless transmissions of the telecommunications industry, cordless phones, W-LAN, Wi-Fi and directional transmitters. Some of the symptoms observed are:
- Difficulty initiating and maintaining sleep
- Chronic fatigue
- Hypertensive crisis and arrhythmias
- Concentration and memory problems
- Learning and behavioral disorders, and
- in children an even more frequent occurrence of ADHD
Symptoms of electrosmog are not only to be fought – the cause must be addressed
For this reason, the authors of the appeal refer to the seemingly uncontrollable wide-scale exposure of the population to technologically produced electromagnetic fields, as the largest human experiment in our history. What long-term and irreversible effects that this electrosmog exposure may still proof to have had on our and other species, is today not yet foreseeable…
It is just our initial findings and premonitions that lead to some of these effects being investigated and to the repeated public warnings by those who see the effects electrosmog is having on us. The Freiburger Appeal demand from policymakers that precautionary measures are taken immediately.
Bedroom radiation assessments should be compulsory and covered by health insurance benefits.
Especially the issue of blood pressure and cardiac arrhythmias derailments are a cause of great concern for physicians because this group of patients and the use of drugs for them has increased enormously in recent years.
The same is true for our little ones. Daycare centers, pre-school and education institutions are sounding the alarm that the occurrence of ADHD is increasing from year to year. Pediatricians complain that at night the children are not achieving the all-important rest phases in their sleep. Parents are encouraged to create irritation-free conditions in the children’s sleeping environment.
Also in the alternative and complementary medical schools, a home and bedroom assessment for electrosmog is prescribed to investigate the possible effects of electromagnetic pollution. Protection of a home or bedroom against electrosmog is now quick and easily accomplish using quality and high performance products.
It is not the question whether or not in today’s world radiation protection makes sense … it has become necessary!
Already 300 doctors and 150 working in medical professions have signed the “Freiburger Appeal”, the first signatories include among many doctors who have been known for their criticism in Germany, such as Prof. Franz Adlkofer, Dr. Horst Eger internationally renowned physicians and scientists like Olle Johansson, Professor of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institute (Stockholm, Sweden). Gerd Oberfeld, MD., Environmental medicine at the regional government of Salzburg and Speaker for Environmental Medicine of the Medical Association Salzburg and the Austrian Medical Association (Austria). Claudio Gomez-Perretta, MD., director of the Centro de Investigación ‘at the University Hospital La Fe (Valencia, Spain), Yury Grigoriev, Professor, Chairman of the’ Russian National Committee protection against non-ionizing radiation (Moscow). Professor Dominique Belpomme, Professor of Oncology at the University of Paris Descartes (Paris, France), Joel M. Moskowitz, Ph.D., director of the Center for Family and Community Health, School of Public Health ‘of the University of California (Berkeley, USA), Andrew A. Marino, Prof. Ph.D., JD, professor at the’ Department of Neurology LSU Health Sciences Center ‘, Shreveport (Los Angeles, USA) Alvaro Augusto de Salles A., Ph.D., professor at the ‘Electrical Engineering Department’ at the University of Rio Grande do Sul (Porto Alegre, Brazil).
For the German federal government, Kühling Wilfried, Prof. Dr.-Ing., Chairman of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Association for the Environment and Nature Conservation Germany (BUND) and the Scientific Advisory Board of Dt. Society for Environmental and Human Toxicology (DGUHT eV) signed the petition.
