The list grows to 28 cell phones dangerous to health either withdrawn or updated in France after control of regulatory exceedances of the exposure level (SAR).
➡️ Update in April of the EssentialB HeYou 40 and 60 sold by Boulanger
➡️ Only the Razer Phone 2 withdrawn in France and Denmark
➡️ Since October 2019 the French Government has still not withdrawn the more than 250 models placed on the market before June 2017 as recommended by ANSES
To date, 28 different models of cell phones dangerous to the health of users have been either withdrawn from the French market or have had their Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) updated by software. Among the latest tested with a SAR trunk “non-compliant” we find the smartphone Nokia 7 Plus (SAR 3.48 W/kg) and Sony XPERIA 5 (2.64 W/kg). The manufacturer HMD GLOBAL OY (Nokia) received a financial penalty of 7 500 euros. And very recently in March and April 2021 two smartphones sold by the distributor Boulanger (EssentielB HeYou 60 and 40) with a SAR trunk and limbs “at risk” respectively of 2.86 W/kg and 5.26 W/kg for the HeYou 60 was sanctioned for exceeding regulatory thresholds.
(….This is the second Italian appeal judgment in favour of a worker after the Brescia judgment in 2010, which concluded with the confirmation of the Supreme Court in 2012, case of Marcolini v. INAIL.
In this case, the Court of Bergamo had rejected the application in first instance.
A landmark judgment that will have international repercussions
The Romeo v. INAIL case is therefore historic. It is the first in world judicial history to have had two consecutive judgments in favour of the plaintiff. It is also historic because of the principles underlying this decision and particularly because it is written about the conflicts of interest of certain experts close to the mobile phone industry.
Conflicts of interest and the role of the ICNIRP pinpointed by the Tribunal
Indeed, the Tribunal recognizes that telephone industry-funded scientists, or members of the ICNIRP, are less reliable than independent scientists: ….)
Thank you for relaying it as widely as possible.
The Phonegate Alert Team To learn more on the same subject:
In a joint letter, Environmental Health Trust (EHT) and Phonegate Alert (AP) called on congressional leaders to end the failure of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to provide appropriate ways to test cellphones and to recall the millions of devices that French government and other independent assessments find emitting excessive levels of radiation.The letter included a report, “Background and facts documenting Phonegate,” detailing numerous serious shortcomings of the FCC.
The entire Phonegate Alert team wishes you and your loved ones all the best for 2020!
Thanks to your growing support, the year is starting off well with a consultation meeting scheduled for January 7th between the organisations that signed our open letter and representatives of the Ministry of Economy and Finance, the General Directorate of Enterprises and the DGCCRF.
Precautions to be taken by the holders of electronic implants (cardiac pacemakers, insulin pumps, neurostimulators …) concerning in particular the distance between the radio equipment and the implant (15 centimeters in the case of the strongest sources of exposure like the mobile phones).
B. – Information on the behaviors to be adopted to reduce exposure to radiation emitted by radio equipment
. Use the radio equipment in good reception conditions to reduce the amount of radiation received.
. Use a hands-free kit or loudspeaker, if suitable for radio equipment.
. Make reasonable use of radio equipment such as mobile phones, by children and teenagers, for example by avoiding nocturnal calls and by limiting the frequency and duration of calls.
. Keep radio equipment away from pregnant women’s belly.
. Keep radio equipment away from the lower abdomen of teenagers.
In July 2019 (updated in September 2019), the French Public Health Agency “Santé Publique France“, together with the Francim cancer registries, the Hospices Civils de Lyon and the Institut National du Cancer, published national estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in metropolitan France between 1990 and 2018. These are based on the modeling of observed incidence data (new cases) until 2015 by cancer registries, supplemented by projections until 2018.
Volume 1 of the report is devoted to solid tumors (27 tumors and 22 subtypes). Between 1990 and 2018, the overall incidence rate of solid tumors remained relatively stable in men and continued to increase in women. At the same time, the annual number of new cases of glioblastoma with histological confirmation (one of the most aggressive types of brain cancer) has increased fourfold and more for both sexes.
In 20 years, the number of glioblastomas multiplied by 4, affecting all ages
Santé Publique France estimates that there will be 3,481 new cases of these glioblastomas in metropolitan France in 2018, 58% of them in men. There were only 823 in 1990….
