The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection or ICNIRP purports to be ‘an independent organization, providing scientific advice and guidance on the health and environmental effects of non-ionizing radiation (NIR) to protect people and the environment from detrimental NIR exposure’. But are they an independent body? And is their advice to be trusted?
A new ‘EMF Call’ has just been issued by 244 scientists who maintain that the new ICNIRP Guidelines published on July 11th this year may protect against ‘acute thermal effects from very short and intense exposure’ but do not protect against ‘harmful effects from low-intensity and long-term exposure, such as cancer, reproductive harm, or effects on the nervous system’. They also maintain that ‘ICNIRP is not independent of industry ties as it claims. Its opinions are not objective, not representative of the body of scientific evidence, but are biased in favor of industry.’
