Wireless communication radiation and health – the honest science

Dr Dimitris J. Panagopoulos is a world authority on the biological and health effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) including radiofrequency (wireless communication – wireless comms) radiation. He is a biophysicist who has conducted extensive experiments and published as a first or sole author more than 40 influential, peer-reviewed scientific papers on the topic.

And his first book has just been released.

Called ‘Electromagnetic Fields of Wireless Communications: Biological and Health Effects’, the book includes cutting-edge knowledge on the effects of man-made EMFs on living systems and contains chapters written by Panagopoulos and other leading experts in the field such as Yakymenko (Ukraine), Miller (Canada), Jagetia (India), De Iuliis (Australia), Belpomme (France), Irigaray (Belgium), Balmori (Spain), and Mohammed (Egypt), among others.

The book answers questions like:

  • what should be the exposure limits for wireless-comms radiation?

  • do international radiation standards protect us?

  • what are the consequences of 5G radiation?

  • why does man-made radiation harm the body when natural radiation doesn’t?

  • what part of a wireless-comms signal causes the biological damage?

  • is Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) a good indicator of biological effects? (no)

  • can wireless-comms radiation break chemical bonds even though it is non-ionizing? (yes)

  • what can scientists do better in the future?

Panagopoulos points out the massive global increase in exposure to wireless-comms radiation and the fact that this radiation differs from that found in nature. ‘Therefore, living organisms are not expected to have natural defenses against anthropogenic EMFs,’ he says.

Whereas ‘Natural EMFs are necessary for maintaining the health and wellbeing of all living organisms on Earth’, Dr Panagopoulos says that ‘man-made EMFs have been found to produce a great number of adverse biological and health effects. These include changes in key cellular functions; oxidative stress; DNA and protein damage; cell death; infertility; cancer; effects on the immune system; changes in human/animal physiology, such as brain activity; pathological symptoms referred to as electro-hypersensitivity (EHS) etc.’

The book addresses the issue of how much radiation should be allowed for human exposure and whether existing radiation standards protect us.

‘Although the majority of peer-reviewed published studies (more than 60%–70%) indicate effects of purely ELF man-made EMFs for field intensities down to less than a few V/m or a few μT, or of pulsed/modulated RF/wireless-comms EMFs for RF intensities down to less than 1 μW/cm2 even for short-term exposures … health authorities responsible for setting exposure guidelines in most countries have adopted limits that are thousands (and even millions, in some cases) of times higher…’, Panagopoulos writes.

The book also covers topics such as:

  • the biological effects of wireless-comms radiation, including effects on DNA, reproduction, brain activity and cancer

  • electromagnetic hypersensitivity

  • the effects of wireless-comms radiation on wildlife

  • and how does wireless-comms radiation cause this damage.

According to Panagopoulos, ‘this book will have served its purpose if it contributes toward a “real and honest science” … A science that is applicable to life and works for the benefit of humanity, not for its destruction or enslavement. A science that increases awareness on the safety of our natural environment and our planet Earth, which is in great danger because of the uncontrolled expansion of human technology and the unrestricted use of the natural resources.’
