Indagine online su MCS e EHS

La Drsa  P Gibson della J. Madison University (USA) che da anni si interessa sia di MCS che di EHS chiede alle donne con età 65 o sup. di partecipare ad una indagine sulle condizioni di vita e di salute che si basa su un questionario online :

Perché non mettete il telefono li' !


C'è un articolo del Daily Mail
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-3781953/Why-men-NEVER-phone-pocket-Study-shows-prolonged-exposure-radiation-steadily-destroys-sperm.html
che riprende le recenti pubblicazioni sugli effetti delle radiofrequenze sulla fertilità maschile.

Sta avendo una certa eco ...

Articolo importante che conferma gli effetti delle radiofrequenze sulla fertilità maschile

Questa review di ricercatori australiani

http://www.reproduction-online.org/content/early/2016/09/06/REP-16-0126
è molto importante perchè di 27 studi investiganti gli effetti di  RF sulla riproduttibilità maschile, sono riportati conseguenze negative in  ben 21 !  
Di questi, 11 su 15 studi riportano un sensibile calo della motilità degli spermatozoi, 7 su 7 riportano alti livelli di specie chimiche ossidate reattive, 4 di 5 studi che hanno dimostrato danni sul DNA .  Inoltre   in 6 su 6 studi si è rilevato un calo di antiossidanti 

Questi risultati, questa review dovrebbe portare a reazioni immediate delle pubbliche autorità ad attivare il principio di precauzione. 

Mobile phone usage has become an integral part of our lives. However, the effects of the radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMR) emitted by these devices on biological systems and specifically the reproductive systems are currently under active debate. A fundamental hindrance to the current debate is that there is no clear mechanism of how such non-ionising radiation influences biological systems. Therefore, we explored the documented impacts of RF-EMR on the male reproductive system and considered any common observations that could provide insights on a potential mechanism. 

Among a total of 27 studies investigating the effects of RF-EMR on the male reproductive system, negative consequences of exposure were reported in 21. Within these 21 studies, 11 of the 15 that investigated sperm motility reported significant declines, 7 of 7 that measured the production of reactive oxygen species documented elevated levels and 4 of 5 studies that probed for DNA damage highlighted increased damage, due to RF-EMR exposure. Associated with this, RF-EMR treatment reduced antioxidant levels in 6 of 6 studies that studied this phenomenon, while consequences of RF-EMR were successfully ameliorated with the supplementation of antioxidants in all 3 studies that carried out these experiments. 

In light of this, we envisage a two-step mechanism whereby RF-EMR is able to induce mitochondrial dysfunction leading to elevated ROS production. 

A continued focus on research which aims to shed light on the biological effects of RF-EMR will allow us to test and assess this proposed mechanism in a variety of cell types.

smart meter dell'ENEL

A quanto pare anche l'ENEL  - pur avendo in Italia il sistema PLC di trasmissione dati, ovvero sul filo di rame -  vuole passare agli smartmeter con la possibilità di avere i consumi praticamente online.

Qui c'è riferimento ad una diatriba tra ENEL ed altre aziende che si contendono le informazioni acquisite dai contatori. ... ahimé ...

Nuovo Report della University di Vienna e Fondo di sicurezza sociale austriaco


E' stato appena ufficializzato il secondo report, per ora in tedesco, la versione in inglese arriverà a breve.

Il focus è sugli effetti non termici delle radiofrequenze .
Qui sotto c'è una sintesi non ufficiale prodotta da Katharina Gustavs.

Research Report ATHEM-2
Investigation of Nonthermal Effects of Electromagnetic Fields in the Cell Phone Frequency Range
A Joint Project of the Austrian Workers' Compensation Board (AUVA – Allgemeine Unfallversicherungsanstalt) and the Medical University of Vienna (MUW – Medizinische Universität Wien)
2016 – AUVA Report No. 70

Abstract translated by Katharina Gustavs (25 August 2016)
The ATHEM-2 Project on the Investigation of Nonthermal Effects of Electromagnetic Fields in the Cell Phone Frequency Range is a follow-up study of the ATHEM-1 Project (2002-2008). 
Cell phones transmit and receive radio-frequency electromagnetic fields (RF EMF). Anybody who uses cell phones is exposed to these fields. The ATHEM-2 Project studied not only cognitive effects, but also if and how RF EMF exposures change cells of the human body. One main area of the study focused on laboratory tests of cellular mechanisms of possible genotoxic effects. To ensure quality assurance, the planned tests were reviewed by external experts prior to the start of the project. All tests were carried out as “double blind” experiments. During exposure and during the processing of test samples, neither the volunteer subjects nor the scientists carrying out the experiments knew the actual exposure conditions.
During the human experiments, the buccal mucosa of the volunteer subjects was exposed for two-hour periods on five consecutive days. The nonexposed opposite buccal mucosa served as a control. During the exposure, effects on cognitive performance were examined. The exposure shortened the reaction time, while the error rate increased. For more complex processes such as memory tests, both reaction time and error rate increased during exposure. Two and three weeks, respectively, after the HF EMF exposure, buccal mucosa cells were sampled and analyzed. Minor genotoxic and cytotoxic effects were found, pointing to an accumulation of exposure effects.
The in vitro laboratory tests regarding genotoxicity confirmed that there are cells that are more sensitive to RF electromagnetic fields and others that are less sensitive. The existence of a latency period (time from the start of exposure until the onset of effects) was also confirmed. As a cellular mechanism, it was observed that RF EMF exposure oxidizes the DNA and thus can make DNA more fragile. In cells exposed to additional stress, the RF EMF exposure increased the DNA breakage rate. We observed cells that activate specific cellular repair mechanisms during RF EMF exposure. This finding on the one hand confirms that DNA damage has occurred and on the other hand supports the assumption that the damage can be repaired. DNA changes that were triggered in this manner disappear after ca. two hours. 
None of the effects that were observed allow any conclusions to be made about direct harmful health effects. However, they constitute a potential risk for exposed persons. Simple precautionary measures taken by the user can reduce the exposure and can therefore minimize this risk. Specific precautionary measures include, among other things, not carrying a cell phone on the body but in a purse or handbag and—during a call—using the speakerphone or a headset.

ancora sul Li-Fi



qui c'è un articolo che fa il punto su questa tecnologia, che è alternava al wifi
http://www.slideshare.net/shwrvppt/li-fi-tch

ci si pone ancora il dubbio se ci possono essere delle contro-indicazioni .


Io sono dell'avviso che si dovrebbe puntare sulle tecnologie alternative e cercare delle 'alleanze' con loro. E' una strategia che può dare un minimo di visibilità alle associazioni no-wifi con possibilità di avere supporti per poter 'fare' qualcosa!  altrimenti ...

E' impensabile tornare al mondo prima del 'tutto connesso'. Quindi vanno proposti sistemi alternativi, come ad es. il PLC power line communication [senza stare a disquisire sulla 'dirty electricity'... ]
