P-04-553 A full and independent investigation in to the health risks of wireless and mobile phone technologies in Wales including all schools
We call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to conduct a full and independent investigation in to the effects of Electro Magnetic Fields created and emitted by wireless technologies, phone masts, mobile phones and other frequency emitters and domestic appliances on the health and general well being of humans and the natural world. There is now an enormous body of evidence demonstrating that the bombardment of modern traffic in electro magnetic fields can be harmful, causing DNA and cellular damage, having an impact on immune function and causing an increased risk of cancer and a loss of fertility - with children being especially susceptible to these threats.
The Council of Europe, World Health Organization, International Agency for UK Trades Union Congress (TUC), European Environment Agency, International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety and the Russian, German and Israeli governments are all asking for these health risks to be addressed and for practical measures such as hard wiring in schools to be introduced instead of Wi Fi. The Welsh Government could also lead in this area and protect the future health of all Welsh citizens by conducting their own independent research as well as consulting with independent organisations such as Powerwatch and WiFiinschools who provide a vast amount of research and strongly advise that the precautionary principle be followed.
