Summary of the ICNIRP/WHO Workshop and EHS Science and Wireless session 11-11-2014

My name is Steven Weller, I hold a science degree in biochemistry and microbiology. I attended the recent ICNIRP workshop held in Wollongong as an EMERG committee member. The Electromagnetic Energy Reference Group (EMERG) was established by ARPANSA to enable input from the community and other stakeholders on issues relating to electromagnetic radiation(EMR) and health. Below is a synopsis of the meetings I attended and includes my own personal opinions.

[The bottom line:]
"... The meeting facilitator Professor Ray Kemp, asked the audience to raise their hand if they felt the Australian RF standard did not provide sufficient protection. I observed a considerable show of hands. This is a clear indication that there is a lack of trust between the public and the so called experts. If this workshop was meant to build trust with academics and the public it most certainly failed. The same “world scientific consensus” spin doctors keep appearing and saying all is okay. Those highly qualified scientists who disagree with this view are not invited to speak ...

It must be understood that ICNIRP is an NGO and has no accountability to the public. WHO has also been tainted in the past by industry interference with the Tobacco science debacle. It would appear history is repeating itself again with vested interests, radio frequencies and health."
