ed ora si ricarica la batteria via Wifi ...!

E' in fase di esame da parte del FCC (Ente USA per le radiazioni) alcuni dispositivi che servono per ricaricare le batterie senza fili.
Qui c'è una presentazione di un tipo.

Ovviamente la società produttrice chiede l'approvazione con riferimento ai limiti ICNIRP che si basano solo sugli effetti termici.

Sono state espresse le contestazioni solite anche se sono al solito ignorate.
Vedremo come andrà a finire.

Israele: il Ministro della Salute avverte pericolosità nell'uso dell' iPad da parte di bambini epilettici


Questa notizia ha fatto scalpore:  il Ministro israeliano della salute manda fuori un segnalazione di attenzione rivolta ai genitori di bambini epilettici per casi di disfunzione dei dispositivi (pacemaker) che hanno sotto la pelle per il trattamento della epilessia, dovuti all'uso (lungo ?) dell'iPad.

L'importatore si attacca alla frase di warning che - immagino a caratteri stampa  micro - indica di non sottoporre a campi elettromagnetici il dispositivo ! ...

Eppoi si dice che il Wifi non fa male !

 

 
 

Israeli Ministry of Health to doctors: Warn epilepsy patients from ipads
*Google translation is not good for this article, it is manually corrected.
Following Smallah's request, the Ministry of Health ordered sellers in Israel to pass the information to all doctors. The European manufacturer Cybronics, issued a letter clarifying to keep patients away from the iPad.  A mother to an epileptic patient from center of the country, noticed unfamiliar symptoms of her son after playing on the iPad. In his body was implanted Vagal pacemaker to treat epilepsy. Unsuccessful attempts to obtain information about the relationship between the iPad and the pacemaker, led the mother to the company that makes the pacemaker abroad, where she was explained what was not known to doctors and to the Ministry of Health in Israel - The iPad runs the pacemaker unnecessarily disrupting its regular activities. "What bothers me is that they did not inform this to us before the transplantation. Do you think we would have implanted a pacemaker - that was not designed to save lives - to the boy, if we had known that he would have to stay away from the iPad for all of his life ?"

Sh., mother of 14 -year-old epileptic patient from the center of the country is angry.  On the one hand, she knows now that tablets and maybe even smartphones, could possibly disrupt the pacemaker activity implanted in the body of her son.  On the other hand she can not tell him to stay away from these devices permanently.
"Even without this, it's not  easy to be a mother of a child with epilepsy, or in general, a child who is not like others - it is not easy to be", says Sh' to Smallah" So now he has also to stay away from devices that have become in recent years an integral part of all our lives? "

T, an epileptic who suffers from severe seizures. Three months ago his parents were convinced to implant Vagal pacemaker in his body. This is a device with one purpose - to improve the quality of life of patients with epilepsy. It is implanted in the underarm area and transmits electrical pulses through the electrode in the left vagus nerve in the neck and from there to the brain.

According to Sh., two months after surgery, her son played with the iPad for about two hours and suddenly the pacemaker was turned on unnecessarily, causing his voice to shake for about a minute and he coughed and felt strangled. The phenomenon repeated itself several times. Only as he left the iPad , the pacemaker relaxed.
When the parents of T' turned to his attending physician, she said that she did not know of a connection between the use of the iPad and disruption to the operation of the pacemaker. If she had known it, she would have informed them about such a basic detail. Even in ' Sigma ', the company which markets the pacemaker in Israel, they  were unmoved .
"The CEO laughed at me at first, he told me it's crap, that there is no connection between the iPad and the pacemaker" recalls Sh' her first conversation with  'Sigma '.  'When I told him that I checked online and found a warning of the manufacturer from using iPads next to transplant pacemakers patients, he immediately determined that there is no connection between the two pacemakers and said it is impossible that there is something I know and his company does not know."

When the parents of T' realized that nobody in the country is aware of the impact of the iPad on their son's pacemaker, and nobody cares, they conducted a home experiment by themselves.
Because they knew the pacemaker was turned on by a magnet, they decided to bring the iPad to another device powered by a magnet - Compass.
"Once we did it, the compass went crazy. We realized immediately, that this is exactly what is happening in T's body as he approached to the iPad ," says Sh'. 

What happens to T' when the pacemaker reacts like this to closeness to the iPad?
"The Pacemaker works at regular time intervals, as soon as the patient feels an epileptic seizure coming, he deliberately turns the pacemaker on, and it increases the rate of electric pulses the pacemaker sends to his brain and their intensity. The situation becomes, that regardless of seizures he receives electrical pulses. Let's just say that if there was no pacemaker and he was suffering from severe epileptic attack, we'd give him medicine, for example , Valium. Imagine if we give him this drug more often than necessarily ? It certainly would have affected him.
So we believe this is the case with electrical pulses."  Sh' added that her son felt ill also after running the pacemaker,  "He had nausea and sore throat. We do not know how many times the pacemaker was turned on without control, but once we noticed the phenomenon, I counted at least five times it was turned on for two hours, not to mention that an unnecessary activation of the pacemaker shortens battery life and battery replacement in such cases is done by surgery, which definitely harms the purpose of improving the patient 's quality of life."

Sh., who believes in the importance of sharing of such information, was not satisfied only with approaching to the marketing company, and to the manufacturer abroad. She also turned  to Smallah.
Following a request of Smalla from the Ministry of Health, the marketer passed guidelines to all physicians who treat with the same pacemaker in the country, so that they will inform their patients about the need to stay away from tablets.
"Cybronics" company published a letter following the incident, sharpening to its customers around the world, that the iPad may disrupt the activity of the pacemaker.
In the letter, adressed to "all interested parties", Sh's case is described and her complaint about unnecessary activations of the pacemaker, near the ipad device.
'Cybronics announced that although they warned in its provisions and instructions from all devices emitting electromagnetic radiation, the doctors and the agents who sell the pacemaker need to sharpen to patients the explanation about what devices are involved, because the public is not necessarily aware of the electromagnetic radiation emitted by many devices.

Ministry of Health's response:

The Ministry of Health contacted Sigma to clarify the matter.
It turns out, that the manufacturer's instructions to the doctor and the patient (in user manual) state, as is generally accepted, that environment with strong electromagnetic radiation may affect the pacemaker.   However, even the manufacturer of a consumer device that emits electromagnetic radiation has full responsibility to warn its users from such phenomena.
There are differences between different manufacturers of devices with electromagnetic radiation and therefore the pacemaker manufacturer required in his own guidelines - to keep them off the chest at distance of 8 inches (20 centimeters).

Based on guidance from the Ministry of Health, marketer of the Vagal pacemaker passed clearer focused message in addition to the general message to all doctors who treat with it.
Doron Debbie, CEO of Sigma, which markets the pacemaker in the country, said in response:

1)  I would like to say that indeed we received a complaint from the mother who contacted us directly. She claimed, that when the child held the ipad  more than two hours in a row on the abdomen ( lying on your back and probably just adjacent to the pacemaker ), it seemed that after long time of use, the iPad turned the pacemaker on (in addition to its random normal operation) and the child reacted as sometimes he responds when the pacemaker is working.

2)  In the manufacturer's instructions for the doctor and patient, it has always been written (as is common with electrical pacemakers in general and not just our pacemaker) that a strong electromagnetic environment may affect the pacemaker. However, the manufacturer of the device that emits electromagnetic radiation has full responsibility to warn its users from these and other phenomenas, Cybronics (Vagal pacemaker manufacturer) cannot check all consumer products in the world that has any magnetic field.

3) We have not received any written complaint of the doctors caring for the child , and when we asked them the doctors told us they had not seen it, but that this was a subjective claim of the mother.
4) We recommended that the mother take her son to the doctor and we started immediately  complaints procedures in front of the pacemaker's manufacturer.
5) Even if the mother's complaint was indeed correct and involuntary (or programmed) activation of the pacemaker happened, there is no immediate danger (according to the manufacturer) to the patient or to the pacemaker (the pacemaker anyway is powered in regular programming every few minutes).

6) According to the manufacturer's instructions (appear in the Bulletin of the pacemaker), in the case of running the pacemaker because of an electromagnetic field, the pacemaker returns to its normal operating format immediately when removing it from the field.

7) I never told the mother that there was no connection between the pacemaker and specific devices (as she claimed ). We clarified to the mother, that we have not received such complaints so far and that we do not know every specific problem between the pacemaker and the iPad device. However, we reminded to the mom, that there exists a general warning for each device which emits electromagnetic radiation, and we offered her to avoid using the device adjacent or close to the pacemaker until checking the complaint. Her answer was that she did not intend to prevent her child from playing on his iPad.
8) We have never received a similar complaint from a patient or a doctor in Israel so far.

9) Following the request of the mother, we immediately turned overseas to the manufacturer, the manufacturer asked us for all pacemaker data and other data for a thorough examination of the pacemaker.

10) Despite this, to the best of our knowledge, following recent widespread use of Apple's iPad and similar devices, the manufacturer intends to refine and focus his message soon for doctors and patients.

11) After receiving a formal response from the manufacturer, we sent a clearer focus in addition to the existing general message to all physicians who treat patients with Vagal pacemaker and through them to the patients, with the following formulation:

"Magnets that are found in several tablets and covers,  such as Apple iPad ® products, may be strong enough to cause in certain conditions casual / temporary turn on of the Vagal stimulus. Patients transplanted with
Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) pacemaker, should use with reasonable care around devices that create a strong electric or magnetic field, and keep away from those instruments at least 15 inches from the area in the body, where the pacemaker is implanted."

12) We intend to refine the message in a more detailed way,  in conjunction with the manufacturer and the Ministry of Health, in more channels to doctors and patients (there are hundreds of such patients in Israel). Also the manufacturer intends to update the official guidelines for physicians and patients around the world soon, and to mention in the guidelines specifically also " iPad devices."
13) From an investigation we conducted with the doctor who examined the patient close to the event , there was no change in the parameters of pacemaker programming as a result of the incident. According to doctor, the prescribed measurements carried out in the clinic, were tested and found negative.
14) Please note the pacemaker has U.S. FDA and European CE approval for more than 15 years. It is sold in more than 90 countries in the world, and more than 100,000 pacemakers were already implanted in the world.  Dozens of medical studies have been published in the world, showing high safety and high efficacy for drug-resistant epilepsy using the pacemaker.

In sperimentazione avanzata in USA nuove linee telefoniche su fibra ottica


Bella notizia (di tanto in tanto ci sono per fortuna) dagli USA.

La FCC (ente supremo che governa sulle comunicazioni) sta avviando una fase di sperimentazione di utilizzo la fibra ottica  come mezzo di comunicazione telefonica con caratteristiche avanzate, come la trasmissione di video (conferenze) ed altre cose.

Questo in alternativa alla ormai riconosciuta obsoleta rete basata su fili di rame. Si riporta che oltre un terzo di americani non usano più i telefoni fissi ma solo i cellulari.

Se realizzata nel futuro vorrebbe dire minore incremento dello elettrosmog ...

The FCC is ‘beta testing’ a next-gen telephone network

By Brian Fung, Updated: January 30 at 1:17 pm

Federal regulators have taken their first major step in accelerating the country's move toward high-capacity, fiber optic phone networks. In a unanimous vote Thursday, the Federal Communications Commission approved a program of trials designed to study the effects of shifting consumers onto next-generation infrastructure that will be able to carry advanced services like HD voice calls and video.
The trials will be set up in select places around the country by participating carriers as a prelude to a much larger transition that will have the nation's phone calls routed using the same Internet Protocol that powers the Web. The move led some at the FCC to draw comparisons to a sexier industry, software development.
"Sandbox thinking is very popular among start-ups in Silicon Valley, but why not put it to use in Washington?" said FCC commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel. "Testing big ideas in a small way is a good way to understand the consequences of our policy choices and the impact on consumers before unleashing them on the world at large."
Among the announced projects so far are an experiment to see whether emergency communications will be disrupted by the IP transition, and how the new networks might help deliver high-speed broadband to rural America. Other studies will examine how to assign new phone numbers in an "all-IP" world. And phone companies themselves are being encouraged to submit their own proposals before a deadline of Feb. 20. The FCC plans to evaluate those submissions and approve or reject them in its May open meeting.
Another commissioner, Ajit Pai, called the plan a necessary "beta test" before the country can consider switching off the old telephone network later this decade.
U.S. consumers are gradually abandoning the old, copper-based phone network for other services already. More than a third of adults use cellphones as their only form of phone service, up from just 5 percent a decade ago. Because federal regulations require phone companies to maintain the plain, old telephone system even as they continue building out advanced networks, many in the industry argue that the arrangement imposes costs and holds back investment in the future.
Meanwhile, consumer advocates caution that moving too quickly to an IP-based phone network could leave some Americans behind.
"We want to make sure that this is an upgrade for everybody, not an upgrade for some and a downgrade for others," said Harold Feld, senior vice president at the public interest group Public Knowledge.

C'è una scuola che smantella il wifi

a Civitanova Marche una scuola decide di smantellare il wi-fi e di tornare al cavo per proteggere la salute degli studenti.
Ecco una vera applicazione del principio di precauzione.
Vorremmo vedere migliaia di foto come questa in tutta Italia.

Waves- "Everyone is exposed and on a very large scale"

While the National Safety Agency recommended to reduce exposure to electromagnetic waves BFMTV.com interviewed a member of the ANSES on the dangers of these waves .
 
Interview by Magali RanginThe 15/10/2013 at 20:52Updated on 15/10/2013 at 20:55

The national health agency  Tuesday recommended to reduce exposure to electromagnetic waves, mainly mobile phones, mainly mobile phones, even if the available scientific evidence does not establish a proven impact on health.
We interviewed Olivier Merkel , Head of the Evaluation Unit of the risk of physical agents.
Is the risk posed by electromagnetic fields growing?In the case of radio frequencies and devices that emit electromagnetic radiation, the intrinsic hazard of mobile phones is not proven. We know that radio frequencies have an effect on living organisms. What worries us and led to some recommendations of caution is that today, everyone is exposed and on a very large scale.
That is exposed to radiation from a mobile phone or a relay antenna is the same signal.
What will change is the exposure. When you have a mobile phone to your ear, you are exposed to a hundred times more than the environment.

Are mobile phones now more or less safe than previous generations?Devices evolve. SAR values ​​displayed are public. We can see that the mean values ​​change more or less. Phones found with low SAR. But there are still phones with high SAR .
But that is changing, especially , it is the behavior. Today, they are used to download over flow and therefore more exposure, but are used less ear. It also has over Wifi box it was 10 years at home. 
The exposure may be less important for some people, but more permanent . Hence our recommendations.

The subject is controversial among scientists?There actually are different views on the subject.  This is due to the fact that the risk levels are relatively low. And the uncertainty surrounding the realization of such epidemiological studies are still relatively high. The ANSES worked on all publications available.
Was put around the table to discuss all of these publications, experts differing opinions.
Ultimately the issue of brain tumors was confirmed the classification of IARC in 2011, possibly carcinogenic radiofrequency related to mobile phone use.
In light of all of the studies we reviewed, we can not exclude that there is a low risk. We could have a 20% increase in some cases of malignant brain tumors, such as gliomas, for larger users and long-term (over 10 years). But again , exposure situations evolve. In the early 2000s, a major user was someone who used his phone a little more than 30 minutes per day

French House passes bill to limit health risks from phones

Friday 24 January 2014 | 09:32 CET | News
France’s National Assembly has passed a compromise bill to limit exposure to electromagnetic emissions from cellular base stations and personal devices, despite opposition from conservative party UMP and telecom operators, reports La Tribune. The bill tabled by the Green Party a year ago, and drafted with the government and ruling socialist party, was described by environment minister Philippe Martin as a ‘first response’ to concerns about emissions. It will now go to the Senate.
The bill attempts to replace the so-called precautionary principle with the ‘sobriety principle’, given the general consensus that it is impossible to completely exclude the potential health risks, according to the Greens. The bill, which received unanimous support from the left, calls for several levels of consultation before equipment is installed and better information about sources of emissions. Operators would be given a 6 month deadline to reduce the emissions of “atypical” base stations where exposure is over 6 V/m, compared to the national average of 1 V/m.
It forbids advertising for tablets to under 14 year-olds, as was already the case for mobile phones, and advertising for handsets sold without an earpiece. If passed, operators will have to supply child-sized earphones if asked for them. Phones are by far the biggest source of emissions, according to national health security agency ANSES, which recommends using an earpiece to divide exposure to the brain by a fact of at least 10. The text also requires the government to co commission a study on electro-hypersensitivity, a condition affecting some people.
The UMP’s Laure de La Radiere denounced the bill as offering a “declinist vision of society”, which went against innovation and job creation. She also said that less densely populated areas of the country would be penalised in their access to fast broadband.
 
 
France will ban Wi-Fi in kindergartens as a precautiongoogle translation
EFE. PARISThe bill also includes French deputies limiting wifi in schoolsThe proposal also includes a ban on the advertising of mobile phones is directed to children under 14 years01/24/2014 at 06:01

The French deputies Thursday began debating a bill, supported by the Government, which among other things prohibit the installation of wifi in reception centers for children under three years, such as kindergartens, and limited use in schools as a precaution .
The wifi can only be turned on maternal education and primary schools' educational activities when warranted ", implying that they will have to be equipped with a device which allows easily shutdown, said Minister of Digital Economy, Fleur Pellerin .
In an interview published Thursday by "Le Parisien" Pellerin said it makes no sense to install wifi in centers that care for children under three years.
One of the most controversial points of the legislation, drafted by Rep. Laurence Abeille environmentalist , and endorsed by the Ministers of Digital Economy and Ecology, Philippe Martin , is setting a framework for the deployment of antennas for mobile phones and other telecommunications services .
Specifically, "the principle of moderation," which identifies three types of obligations for operators when installing your antenna is introduced : consultation and information from neighbors , transparency and "the re- absorption of outliers where emissions are above average."
The National Agency for Sanitary Safety (Anses) will identify black spots in terms of emissions ( it is estimated that a thousand in France , where there are 120,000 antennas), study how to control and verify that companies act to correct them.
The legislative proposal includes banning advertising of mobile phones can lead to under 14 and sets standards for the information that must be provided to purchasers of the waves they generate.
In parallel, campaigns to promote the use of hands-free devices and avoid possible long have the phone close to the head by potential hazards are expected .
The French Telecommunications Federation (FFT ) , speaking through its CEO , Jean -Marie Danjou , expressed its willingness to improve information and transparency, but criticized the way operators is presented .
"The work carried out in France for three years show that the level of exposure is 100 times lower than the standard of the World Health Organization (WHO ) ," said Danjou , who warned of the problems of the "principle of moderation" for his indefinite.
The industry representative stressed that, according ANSES, there is no proven risk in so-called blackheads and that - for lack of a formal demonstration of the increased uncertainty relates to the use of prolonged cell glued tohead.
Pellerin considered that investments in the sector are necessary because there is strong demand , but justified this regulation because the industry can not be the " Wild West " .
He also noted that fourth generation mobile , the antenna array emits less than 3G. Therefore, "when only a 4G network, that can be a factor in lower emissions ."
 
 
The Assembly adopted a compromise text on electromagnetic waves23 Jan 2014 9:47
The Assembly debated Thursday of a bill of compromise with the government for limiting exposure to electromagnetic waves, which is opposed by the UMP and telecom companies. Thomas Samson
  
A year after a "first-class burial" in the eyes of environmentalists, the Assembly on Thursday passed a bill compromise to limit exposure to electromagnetic waves , despite the opposition of the UMP and businesses telecoms.This environmentalist text , the result of a year of work with the Socialists and the government appears to be a " constructive compromise " and " first response " to concerns about the waves , praised the Minister of Ecology, Philippe Martin. It will now be considered in the Senate.The purpose of the bill is set in stone the principle of " simplicity " in wave exposure from mobile phones, wifi and antennas, not a "precautionary principle" cases as proposed environmentalists there one year. According to them, scientific studies "will all agree that we can not completely exclude the risk of" adverse effects on health.While relations between Socialists and EELV were shaken in recent months, government and MPs PS had to heart to insist on the "promise kept" not to abandon this project .Philippe Martin stressed the idea of ​​" balance rather than against industrial and environmental dimensions", in unison with the Minister to Digital Economy .A year after his warnings against " irrational fears " related to waves , Fleur Pellerin assured that " balance " proposal did not prevent " a real ambition ."Wifi banned in nurseries
Unanimously supported the left, the bill provides, among other consultation at various levels during the installation of radio equipment and better information on emission sources.It prohibits advertising for tablets for less than 14 years (at the risk of a fine of € 75,000 ) , as is already the case for mobile phones, and advertising for mobile phones sold without headsets. Operators must also offer kits compatible with the size of children's ears if the buyer requests it.The main source of exposure effect , according to the National Safety Agency ( handles ) , mobile phone and "far". Anses calls in general to "limit exposure of the population," especially heavy users and children, whose skull is thinner . The use of a headset divided exposure by at least a factor 10 .The text also requests the Government to report on the electro- hypersensitivity , these people intolerant to electromagnetic fields.UMP spoke against such "no health justification well established" and " penalize the less dense areas of the territory in access to high speed ."
Questions about the impact of the deployment of 4G
Contrary to the "clash of simplification" and possible source of litigation, this text provides in addition a "declinist vision of society" , going against  "digital innovation", yet one sector " job provider", argued Laure de La Raudière (UMP), entrepreneur.Several major professional organizations in the digital had felt that the text would " raise irrational fears , tensions and disputes around the networks and mobile digital services and wireless ."Questions arise regularly on the impact of waves on health, in particular with the deployment of 4G.Edits have been made in meeting local procedures for the antennas installation.MEPs finally banned the installation of wifi boxes in daycare , but not in the mother as desired by environmentalists schools.Committee , members had extended the ban to kindergartens, but they came back on this provision during the meeting at the request of the government.Such a ban " would be a real obstacle to the development of digital technology in primary schools at a time when it is a priority," said Philippe Martin .It would also send a " signal anxiety " families, most of whom receive many wifi signals in their home, has he added.
 
 
INTERVIEW 
Fleur Pellerin: "It does not have to be the Wild West" Minister for the Digital Economy 
D. R. | Posted on Jan 23, 2014 7:00
 
This morning a new proposal for legislation to reduce exposure to waves will be presented by the member Laurence Bee ( EELV) .It is supported by the Minister of Ecology, Philippe Martin, and the Minister of Digital Economy, Fleur Pellerin which reveals the outline .
What is the prevailing principle in this text that you support ?FLOWER Pellerin. This text is a good synthesis of the priority investment and technological progress and the desire of some citizens in moderation electromagnetic waves. It acts that the deployment of the antennas should not be the Wild West and establishes the principle of moderation. This is a real novelty. This principle should be taken into account by the regulator and legislator. It is based on three pillars: cooperation and information to citizens, transparency and resorption outliers, those where emissions are above average.
Provide for a maximum level of emissions ?There are already thresholds and we keep. Following the report I commissioned two experts, it turns out that the principle of moderation and sobriety is more effective than new thresholds that may open endless litigation. This is what offers Laurence ABEILLE. It is better involve citizens in the installation of antennas and operators communicate better on the emission level and installation of antennas. The mayor will be the focus of consultation and may seek exposure measures in the National Frequency Agency .
What about blackheads?It will be the agency to define these sites to study how they should be treated and to check that it was done by the operators. It should cover about a thousand sites.
And in schools?Does it makes sense to put the Wi- Fi in schools that cater for children under 3 years ? No, so it solves the problem cribs. Vincent Peillon a great project to use digital technology in learning to read , and kindergartens will need Internet . But the Wi -Fi will not be lit when the educational activities warrant. That means that there will box on the Internet a simple device to easily turn off the Wi-Fi.
What is planned for mobile ?Anses* report says that mobile produce more emissions than the antennae. The text proposes to better inform buyers about radiation from mobile. There will be information campaigns encouraging them to use hands-free kits, and caution statements on advertisements.
Operators have been unreasonable because they need a law ?The investment was necessary, there was a high demand. But it does not have to be the Wild West,
I repeat.
Some fear that 4G is also dangerous ...4G equipment emits less , the network is more sober than 3G. Eventually, when there is only 4G network, it will be a less radiation. No need to fear , therefore , on the contrary .
* ANSES: National Safety Agency .
 
Waves yes, but in moderationA bill is considered today for the first time in France , to limit exposure to electromagnetic waves.Frédéric and Daniel Mouchon Rosenweg | Posted on Jan 23, 2014 7:00
"Consume with moderation." One day - Will we see this message displayed on our tablets, smartphones or Internet box ? The bill proposed by Green MP Laurence ABEILLE, presented today at the Assembly , aims to enshrine in law the principle of restraint in the population exposure to electromagnetic waves. This text , supported by the government proposes to further regulate the installation of antennas and to minimize the use of wi -fi in schools.A first draft deposited there a year , had not received government approval . The Minister for the Digital Economy , Fleur Pellerin had then warned against " irrational fears " related to the airwaves. Reluctance now forgotten since it is what we revealed exclusively, the key measures . While 102,000 antennas are deployed in France and 4G is booming , the National Agency for the Safety of Food, Environmental and Occupational summarizes the issue in the debate: "On one side these new products are favored by the population, on the other they arouse suspicion."The mobile operators take refuge, them, behind the official lack of "clear risk" to challenge any supervision. "Historically , they provided a very favorable legislation, and today there is a form of anarchy in the installation of antennas ," says co-chair of EELV group in the Assembly , François de Rugy .Anti- wave associations require the application of the precautionary principle and the creation of
"safe havens" in urban areas, protected from waves, to accommodate people electro. 
"At least a thousand French suffer from this handicap recognized in Sweden, says Green MEP Michèle Rivasi. I work so that they can be accommodated in a white area, Saint -Julien -en- Beauchene (Hautes -Alpes), to spend a few months to recharge it . "AUDIO . Electromagnetic waves: Palhares , the Ardèche village resists
