Wireless radiation

Political and industrial conflict of interests

Conflict of Interests

Does the telecom industry tell the truth about wireless technology and harm?

Of course not. Too much money is involved. The telecom industry has much more money than the tobacco industry would ever have imagined.

You will be surprised on how much influence the telecom industry has on politics.

You will be surprised to hear how much money is spent to pay influential persons, leaders, and scientists concerning political interests.

You will be surprised to see that the telecom industri has got the power and leadership on all important political issues concerning wireless radiation, even concerning health effects and “safety limits”.

Is the telecom industry objective concerning heath effects and “safety limits”? Of course not.

WHO and IARC are now both funded by the telecon industry and together with ICNIRP they want to review cancer and 5G.

WHO’s Cancer Research Agency to Assess 5G Health Risks — But Not Until 2025

5 Jan 2023

CHD By Suzanne Burdick, Ph.D.

“The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer will participate in a project to assess the health risks of exposure to 5G technologies, but critics accused the agency of ignoring already existing evidence and suggested the results could be tainted by industry partners.”


” Nilsson emphasized that in view of the influential corporate economic interests involved, it is necessary that any risk assessment be performed by scientists that have no ties to the telecom sector or telecom-affiliated corporations.

“However, the IARC is unfortunately no longer a guarantee for such objectivity,” she said, adding:

“The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is by far the largest single voluntary funder of the IARC and such funding probably comes with strings attached.

“Further, IARC’s head of the radiation department, Joachim Schüz, is a well-known risk-denier, in spite of growing evidence to the contrary, who has produced a seriously biased report for the EU-Commission and flawed studies on brain tumor risks from cellphones, funded by telecom companies, such as the Danish Cohort and the Cefalo study.”


“… Nilsson told The Defender the project “looks like a greenwashing project for the rollout of 5G to the benefit of the major corporate stakeholders.”

For instance, Nilsson pointed out, some of SEAWave’s consortia partners — such as Telecom Paris and ITIS — are “of concern” for potentially receiving sponsor funding from 5G stakeholders.”




ICNIRP connections in the new WHO and IARC review on cancer and RF exposure


The WHO task force group to review cancer and RF exposure (and 5G)

“Eleven of the 21 people have a current or former association with ICNIRP. Most of the other individuals have published or presented papers defending the ICNIRP limits for RF exposure.”

Not a single one of the 250 EMF scientists who signed the  International EMF Scientist Appeal was selected by the WHO for the Task group. Neither of these researchers was selected to work with the  ten research overviews that the working group will consider. The signatories of the International EMF Scientist Appeal have more than 2,000 EMF publications listed in the EMF-Portal archive.”

It appears that WHO has biased the selection of task force and research review participants to ensure that the forthcoming WHO health risk monograph on RF will support ICNIRP’s lax exposure limits for RF, which fail to protect humans and other species from chronic exposure to low levels of radio frequency radiation. It’s no wonder that much of the public distrusts the WHO if this is how the agency is going to continue to “improve its handling of conflicts of interest and strengthen public trust and transparency.”

Telecom industry advisors for Japan, Korea NTP Repeat

The American NTP study found clear evidense on cancer in male rats. Now the telecom industry in Janan and Korea is making their own study concerning RF exposure


Japanese-Korean “validation study”

Advisors for Japan, Korea NTP Repeat


“This is the list of members who receive money from or who comes directly from the telecom industry:


As appears from the list of members of the Japan-Korea  International Advisory Committee, 8 out of 10 have a connection to ICNIRP or the telecommunications industry :

  • Alexander Lerchl , Prof. Dr. at Jacobs University (private), Germany. Over a number of years, industry spokesperson and, among other things, known to persecute other researchers. In both 2015 and 2020, he lost a libel lawsuit, an attempt to sweep the EU’s 20 million with false accusations. large REFLEX studio from 2004 under the carpet. Was dropped from the WHO’s IARC expert panel in 2011 due to his association with industry and his general behavior.

The lack of international and national health policies to protect persons with self-declared electromagnetic hypersensitivity


26 October 2022

Dariusz Leszczynski


Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), known also as an idiopathic environmental intolerance attributed to electromagnetic fields (IEI-EMF) or a microwave sickness, is not considered by the World Health Organization (WHO) as being caused by the exposures to electromagnetic fields (EMF). EHS is not recognized as a disease anywhere in the world. Some studies have roughly estimated that 1–10% of the population might experience some form of EHS. However, because of the lack of diagnostic criteria for EHS, these estimates might be either under- or over-estimates. Because the vast majority of human population is exposed to EMF, the possibility of developing EHS from the EMF is a substantial public health issue that should be dealt with globally, even if the individual risk of developing EHS might be small. The WHO recognizes that the symptoms experienced by the EHS persons might be severe and might significantly hamper everyday life. However, after a broad analysis of international and national documents, there seems to be currently no effort to develop health policies for the dealing with EHS, no matter what causes it. National governments, follow the opinions of the WHO and the EMF safety standards setting organizations, the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers – International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety (IEEE-ICES), are not developing any practical health policy advisories for self-declared EHS sufferers. However, symptoms experienced by the self-declared EHS persons affect their well-being and, according to the Constitution of the WHO, are a health problem. Hence, independently of what causes EHS symptoms, this admitted well-being-impairment should be dealt with globally by developing an uniform health policy. Furthermore, WHO, ICNIRP and IEEE-ICES should be advocating and supporting research that would generate a reliable scientific evidence on what are the possible cause(s) of EHS. Without such research there is not possible to develop diagnostic methods as well as any possible mitigation approaches. There is an urgent need for the WHO to advocate for the national governments to urgently develop a comprehensive and common EHS health policy.

World Health Organization, radiofrequency radiation and health - a hard nut to crack

2017 Pub Med.

By Lennart Hardell
Department of Oncology, Faculty of Medicine and Health, Sweden.

“The biophysicist Michael Repacholi from Australia was the first chairman of ICNIRP in 1992.

Repacholi was during 1996-2006 the leader of the WHO department of electromagnetic radiation, the WHO
EMF project.

Michael Repacholi immediately set up a close collaboration
between WHO and ICNIRP (being head of both organizations)
inviting the electric, telecom and military industries to meetings. He also arranged for large part of the WHO EMF project to be financed by the telecommunication industry’s lobbying
organisations; GSM Association and Mobile Manufacturers
Forum, now called Mobile & Wireless Forum.

Michael Repacholi acted like a representative for the telecom industry while responsible for the EMF health effects
department at the WHO. Since he left WHO in 2006 he has
been involved in industry propaganda video interviews with
GSM Association and Hydro Quebec where he clearly speaks in favor of the telecommunications and the power industries, respectively.
Michael Repacholi is still the Chairman emeritus at ICNIRP and has propagated during almost 20 years worldwide the ‘only thermal effect’ paradigm of health risks from RF-EMF exposure, ignoring the abundant evidence for nonthermal effects or cancer risks.
Repacholi recruited Emilie van Deventer to the WHO EMF Project in 2000. She is the current project manager at WHO for the EMF project. She has been a long time
member of the industry dominated organization Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). IEEE is the
world’s most powerful federation of engineers. The members are or have been employed in companies or organizations that are producers or users of technologies that depend on radiation frequencies, such as power companies, the telecom and the military industry. IEEE has prioritized international
lobbying efforts for decades especially aimed at the WHO.

Van Deventer is an electrical engineer. She has no formal
or earlier knowledge in medicine, epidemiology or biology, so it is surprising that she was selected for such an important position at the WHO.”

WHO uses the telecom industry and their funds on science concerning health effects


The documentary reveals that the WHO made research funded by the telecom industry “Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research (MTHR).

David Cogggan, chief scientist at the MTHR, admits that it gives a conflict of interest.

Please watch 41 minutes in the documentary.

Swisscom (telecom industry) writes

Swisscom (telecom industry) 2003: 

“The influence of electrosmog on the human body is a known problem. The health risk from mobile radio transmitters, handys and DECT telephones has been an explosive subject among the general public at least since the enormous breakthrough in mobile radio technology in the 1990s.” 

“ …When, for example, human blood cells are irradiated with electromagnetic fields, clear damage to hereditary material has been demonstrated and there have been indications of an increased cancer risk”. 

“ … These findings indicate that the genotoxic effect of electromagnetic radiation is elicited via a non-thermal pathway. Moreover aneuploidy is to be considered as a known phenomenon in the increase of cancer risk.”
