La rete delle associazioni italiane in lotta contro l’elettrosmog e in difesa della salute pubblica sempre più minacciata dall’ubiquitario elettrosmog, invita tutti i cittadini consapevoli dei pericoli della radiofrequenze ad aderire alla proposta dell’associazione belga Beperk de Straling (‘Limit the radiation’) a scrivere al Parlamento Europeo di fermare “l‘approvazione dei protocolli per la connettività wireless delle automobili, che immergerà gli esseri umani a radiazioni da radiofrequenza, in modo pressoché ubiquitario“, come ripetere la giornalista Francesca Romana Orlando dell’Associazione AMICA. “E’ stata preparata una lettera che vi invito a sottoscrivere per chiedere al Parlamento Europeo di non votare l’autorizzazione di questa tecnologia. La trovate in allegato. Le adesioni, con il nome della vostra associazione ed eventualmente anche i contatti, devono arrivare entro Sabato sera, 13 Aprile a email@example.com.”
La lettera, in alternativa, può anche essere mandata direttamente ai membri del Parlamento Europeo (CLICCA QUI PER TROVARE GLI INDIRIZZI). Di seguito il testo della lettera in lingua inglese. Dei gravi rischi derivabili dalle cosiddette Smart Road previste dal 5G, ne abbiamo già parlato dando notizia di un’inquietante episodio occorso nei giorni scorsi ad una donna gravemente elettrosensibile sull’Autostrada Roma-Fiumicino. Cosa succederà se la prossima generazione di automobili sarà solo in versione Wi-Fi e per una guida senza conducente?
Health risks of connected cars
Dear member of the European Parliament,
Next week you will vote on the communication standard to be used for connected cars.
In this context, we would like to draw your attention to the significant health risks of connected cars and connected road infrastructure.
Thousands of scientific studies that have accumulated since more than 60 years point to negative effects on human health of this type of radiation: cancer, neurological effects and diseases, effects on sleep, effects on fertility and child development, effects on memory and cognition, etc.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer officially classified this type of radiation as a class 2B carcinogen, that is ‘potentially carcinogenic’, in 2011 already.
New alarming studies have been published since then and especially in 2018, two new scientific studies bring us very close to the final proof that this radiation causes cancer: the large scale NTP-study by the US government and the Ramazzini study in Italy.
We do not understand at all how it is even possible to think about the possibility of integrating radiation emitting antennas into each vehicle and putting new antennas along our roads. This will massively increase exposures to radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation. The health risks of European citizens will increase enormously and it is possible that there will be a significant impact on rates of cancer and other diseases.
It is clear that it is preposterous to say that connected cars will save lives.
Estimates show that about 3% of the population, children included, suffers from EHS, electrohypersensitivity. These people are extremely sensitive to the effects of electromagnetic radiation and suffer from numerous symptoms when they are exposed: debilitating headaches, heart rhythm disturbances, ‘brain fog’, general unwellness, problems with concentration and memory, insomnia etc. Because of ever increasing use of wireless technology, the lives of these people are becoming increasingly difficult and constricted. Their suffering is enormous, because it becomes harder every day to escape the radiation exposure.
If in the future all cars will be ‘connected’ and wifi or 5G-antennes will be placed in every car, this will be an unimaginable disaster for people with EHS, who will not be able anymore to transport themselves by car. Public transport is not an option either, because of the presence of smartphones.
Connected cars and connected roads will be an assault on our fundamental rights as European citizens. Our right to health, our right to free movement.
We are in a similar scenario as with asbestos and tobacco and the same mistakes are being made.
We would like to urge the European Parliament not to blindly rush into new technological developments, just because the telecommunications and automotive industry is pushing for it. The European Parliament should take the necessary time to thoroughly think about the health implications of the choices that will be made, and to explore innovative alternative technological possibilities that do not jeopardize our health and wellbeing. Minimizing exposures should be an important, of not the most important, criterion.
Thank you for your attention.
