(….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.
So today, we’re asking you to send the sample municipal law (below) to your town, city or county elected officials. Let’s take advantage of this great 9th Circuit victory over the cell phone industry by enacting this same “Right-to-Know” law in thousands of communities across America. (Note: You must use the identical language contained in the City of Berkeley’s law printed below to fall within the 9th Circuit ruling.)
Kudos to Dr. Joel Moskowitz and Ellie Marks for spearheading this effort for a total of 10 years, and to Professor Lawrence Lessig who helped shape the legal arguments that beat the industry!
SAMPLE CELL PHONE RIGHT-TO-KNOW LAW
The (town, city or county) of ______________ requires that you be provided the following notice:
“To assure safety, the Federal Government requires that cell phones meet radio-frequency (RF) exposure guidelines. If you carry or use your phone in a pants or shirt pocket or tucked into a bra when the phone is ON and connected to a wireless network, you may exceed the federal safety guidelines for exposure to RF radiation.
“Refer to the instructions in your phone or user manual for information about how to use your phone safely.”
Thank you for fighting the good fight with us. Together we can win.
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….
