TAKE-AWAY MESSAGES (from the press release)
- ICBE-EMF scientists report that exposure limits for radio frequency (or wireless) radiation set by ICNIRP and the FCC are based on invalid assumptions and outdated science,; and are not protective of human health and wildlife.
- ICBE-EMF calls for an independent assessment of the effects and risks of radio frequency radiation based on scientific evidence from peer-reviewed studies conducted over the past 25 years. The aim of this assessment would be to establish health-protective exposure standards for workers and the public.
- The public should be informed of the health risks of wireless radiation and encouraged to take precautions to minimize exposures, especially for children, pregnant women and people who are electromagnetically hypersensitive.
- ICBE-EMF calls for an immediate moratorium on further rollout of 5G wireless technologies until safety is demonstrated, and not simply assumed.
In the late-1990s, the FCC and ICNIRP adopted radiofrequency radiation (RFR) exposure limits to protect the public and workers from adverse efects of RFR. These limits were based on results from behavioral studies conducted in the 1980s involving 40–60-minute exposures in 5 monkeys and 8 rats, and then applying arbitrary safety factors to an apparent threshold specifc absorption rate (SAR) of 4W/kg.
The limits were also based on two major assumptions: any biological effects were due to excessive tissue heating and no efects would occur below the putative threshold SAR, as well as twelve assumptions that were not specified by either the FCC or ICNIRP. In this paper, we show how the past 25 years of extensive research on RFR demonstrates that the assumptions underlying the FCC’s and ICNIRP’s exposure limits are invalid and continue to present a public health harm.
