Recommendations and Precautions oft he Federal Office for Radiation Protection for Mobile Phone Calls

-         In situations, where it is possible to use a build-in phone, it is preferable to the mobile phone or the cordless phone

-         Keep the phone calls with the mobile as short as possible – to keep the health risk low

-         Avoid using the mobile phone when the phone indicates bad reception, if used: it would send with a much higher strength to compensate the bad reception. Avoid using it in a car because the body of the car creates a bad connection.

-         Use a mobile phone with a low SAR-rate (under 0,6W/kg)

-         Use SMS instead of calling, because you avoid having it at head level

-         Use a head-set. The intensity of the fields gets reduced with the distance to the antenna. By using a head-set you keep a distance between your head and the antenna and have therefore less radiation.

Strictly no mobile phones for children. As they are smaller they have higher resonant frequencies. No mobile phones near to children specially when the phones have no protection for radiation. Absolutely no mobile phones near to pregnant woman. (5 meter distance to mobile phones is recommended). Limited use of mobile phones for elderly and ill people.

Be aware that cordless phones have the same bad radiation as mobile phones and reduce the use of them. Have the basic station of the cordless phone minimum 5 meters away from any bed or chair. Use protection ampoules for phone and basic station.

Be aware of the stress factor for your heart when you spend some time in areas with wifi (WLAN) where people use internet access, like in pubs, airports, some restaurants…..

Have minimum 8 meters distance to a satellite dish – better more.

Digital receivers need a box with protection ampoules or you need to keep minimum 4 meters distance not to risk your health.

It affects us mostly when we are exposed for some hours to an electric outlet – the recommendation from the ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) advices (I quote)”to have a minimum distance of some 30cms to any electric appliances when in use.” Protect yourself, do not sleep next to a plug.

If you want to learn testing for yourself come to one of my testing seminars. In a 3-hours seminar you learn to test for food, medication and radiation.

Protection ampoules and boxes filled with 2 or 4 ampoules are available in the shop. 

Court in France decided: Woman gets compensation for harm of electrosmog - € 8oo per month

Electomagnetic hypersenstivity to mobile and wifi is 'serious handicap', French court rules

French court rules that woman is unable to work due to the debilitating effect of mobile and wifi waves and should receive €800 per month in adult handicap welfare, in legal first that could lead to many more claims.

A French court has ruled that electromagnetic hypersensitivity to mobile and wifi waves is a "serious handicap", setting a legal precedent that lawyers say could lead to "thousands" of claims.

Although the condition is not officially recognised in France, a Toulouse court in charge of disability related disputes ruled that Marine Richard, 39, a former script writer and radio documentary director, displayed “irrefutable clinical signs” of suffering from a syndrome linked to electromagnetic waves.

Ms Richard, , has “85 per cent functional impairment” due to her condition meaning she cannot work, making her able to an adult handicap allowance of around €800 (£588) per month for three years, which could be renewed, the court decided.

The July ruling went unnoticed at the time but was unearthed on Wednesday by AFP.

“This judicial recognition is a major first in France,” said Etienne Cendrier, spokesman for Robin des Toits (Robin Roofs), an association that raises awareness over health issues linked to wireless technologies.

Ms Richard, who has been living as a recluse in the mountains of Ariège, southwestern France, to escape the waves she says have made her life hell, described the ruling as "a breakthrough".

She currently lives in a restored barn with no electricity or running water and no road leading to the property.

Sweden is the only country in the world to recognise electromagnetic hypersensitivity, or EHS, as a functional impairment. Sufferers complain of terrible headaches and dizziness making it hard to think or speak clearly. They say their symptoms are brought on when they come into contact with mobile, wireless phone, or wireless internet waves.

Alice Terrasse, Ms Richard’s lawyer, said the ruling was an historic first in France and could lead to legal action from the “thousands of people concerned by this but who have not gone to the courts until today”.

"They are very isolated, have very little contact (with the outside world), and for them the procedures (to seek financial or legal aid) are extremely complicated,” she said.

Mr Cendrier from Robin des Toits said that the court ruling showed that “justice, as is often the case, is ahead of politicians”, which he accused of “protecting industrial players”.

Ms Richard said she hoped the ruling would lead to the maximum legal limits of such electromagnetic waves being reduced. “We know how to make much less polluting technologies. That said, it’s a political choice,” she said.

A French law passed in January merely called for a report early next year on the issue.
