A long story comes to an end

The legal dispute before the Hanseatic Higher Regional Court of Bremen against Alexander Lerchl, Professor of Biology and Ethics at the private Jacobs University in Bremen, was about the final clarification of the question of whether he can prove his allegation – constantly repeated since 2008 – that the results of the REFLEX Study funded by the EU Commission from 2000 to 2004 are falsified. The finding that mobile phone radiation can damage genes in isolated human cells obviously exceeded his ability to understand. To lend credibility to his claim he accused Elisabeth Kratochvil of falsification, a technical assistant at the Medical University of Vienna (MUV) who had contributed significantly to the REFLEX results. His aim was twofold. On the one hand, he wanted to prevent the REFLEX follow-up study, which had been highly rated by the EU Commission’s experts, from also being funded. In this he was successful. On the other hand, he wanted to have the REFLEX papers withdrawn from the scientific literature. In this he failed. He could not convince the editors of the journals in which they had been published with his allegation of falsification. They noticed his intention and were not willing to be misused for the purposes of a lobbyist of the mobile phone industry, as he was already known at that time.


How the Mobile Communication Industry Deals with Science as Illustrated by ICNIRP versus NTP

The development of mobile communication technologies starting with 1G up to now 5G is a success story rarely heard of previously. It has only been possible because industry experts in charge of the technology assumed that radiofrequency (RF) radiation and its modulations – similar to visible light – are biologically harmless. They believed in safety limits that reliably protect people only from the acute thermal effects of RF radiation inherent in the system. Biological effects below the safety limits were categorically ruled out because their existence allegedly contradicted the laws of physics.


News from the NTP Study

In May 2016, after a considerable delay, first results were published of a study by the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) on the effects of long-term exposure of rats to mobile phone radiation. They confirmed what the mobile phone industry and its mercenaries in science have disputed as preposterous to reason until today: that a carcinogenic potential is inherent to mobile phone radiation. The authors of the NTP study openly admit that they themselves were surprised by this outcome of their research on mobile phone radiation.


Electrosensitivity: as experienced by an electrosensitive person and assessed by scientists

On February 13, 2013, the body of Carsten Häublein a former pastor from Ammertal, was recovered from the river Schlei in Schleswig-Holstein (Germany). From the available evidence, it was concluded that he had taken his own life. After seven years of suffering whenever he was exposed to mobile communication radiation (RF-EMF), he obviously had lost the courage to continue this way of life.


Report from the Science and Wireless 2015

Professor Dariusz Leszczynski, with the support from the Pandora Foundation and the Kompetenzinitiative, took part in the BioEM2015 in Asilomar, California, USA, and in the Science and Wireless 2015 in Melbourne, Australia. In his report from the BioEM2015 he criticizes mainly the lack of research with humans, which is imperative to find evidence of health risks from radiofrequency radiation, and the inability of science to find common ground when discussing controversial issues.
