The Copenhagen Resolution
The Copenhagen Resolution 65 was passed at the conference “The Shadow Side of Wireless Society” in Copenhagen, Denmark on October 9th, 2010. It is based on previous international appeals, resolutions and the Bioinitiative Report from Medical Doctors and Scientists who state the need for prevention of damage to public health from the exposure to radiation from Wireless Technology. It makes the following demands:
- A considerable lowering of guidelines and exposure to wireless microwave radiation, to a biologically based precautionary level, with a peak-level maximum of 0.6 V/m as recommended by the BioInitiative report. (The 2012 BioInitiative recommended a reduction to “0.3 nanowatts to 0.6 nanowatts per square centimeter as a reasonable, precautionary action level for chronic exposure to pulsed RFR.”)
- Information and official warnings for the general public, regarding the health risks from wireless microwave radiation – with emphasis on increased risks for pregnant women and children.
- Warning labels on wireless radiation emitting products and a determination by the producers to design such products to emit as little radiation as possible, and emit radiation only when necessary.
- Restrict and discourage children`s access to, and use of wireless radiation emitting products.
- Electro Hyper Sensitivity must be officially recognized as a functional impairment.
- Enable and respect local community influence on the location of wireless base stations and a full disclosure of all existing and planned wireless base-station locations.
- Minimize wireless radiation exposure in public spaces occupied by vulnerable groups, like schools, day care facilities and public transport.
- Establish White-Zones: low-radiation communities where Electro-hypersensitive people can live as well as providing financial support for shielding from wireless radiation in existing homes.
- Promote health safe alternatives to wireless technology.
- Independent research must be undertaken.
