Magnifico! Italian court orders campaign to raise awareness about cell phone and cordless phone radiation exposure risks
Thanks to the Italian citizens who fought and to Microwave News for reporting this victory:
In a joint press release, three different ministries —of Health, of Environment and of Education and Research— acknowledge that there is a need to raise public awareness on how to use mobile phones safely.
“This case has important implications not only in Italy, but worldwide,” Bertone said. “At the moment, health and safety information is contained —or, I should say, buried— in cell phone manuals. This is not good enough. If it was, the court would have agreed with the government that sufficient information is already available.”
Several decades of research have already proven that exposure to cell phones, cordless phones, and all other sources of wireless radiation is harmful to people, animals, and nature. Telecom companies have been warning shareholders – not the public – that they may eventually be held financially liable for causing harm with their products and infrastructure. Insurance companies haven’t covered cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation exposure for many years because it’s too risky.
Other governments have also been trying to educate citizens about health risks from all sources of wireless radiation exposure – especially to children – for the past decade. Isn’t it time for every country to do the same?
