[Press release] Users warned about 3 French mobile phone models from 3 manufacturers by Alert Phone Gate – December 05, 2019

(click on photos to enlarge)

Dear supporters,

We warn against 3 mobile phones of the brands BlackBerry, Doro and Selecline. We ask the French public authorities to withdraw the RTTE versions from the market as soon as possible.

Indeed, these manufacturers have deliberately continued to sell their products on the French market in complete legality, knowing that they are potentially putting their customers’ health at risk. The question also obviously arises at European level. Our press release:   https://www.phonegatealert.org/en/press-release-users-warned-about-3-french-mobile-phone-models-from-3-manufacturers

Thank you for helping us to denounce these actions and to relay our alert as widely as possible.

Mobile telephony and public health – Is Switzerland an absent subscriber? – Alert Phone Gate – November 03, 2019

https://www.phonegatealert.org/en/mobile-telephony-and-public-health-is-switzerland-an-absent-subscriber?

Called upon in the context of the Phonegate industrial and health scandal by Léon Warnier, Swiss Phonegate Alert Coordinator, the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (SFOPH) initially declared itself incompetent. After a cascading referral to different authorities, the FOPH claims to be unaware of which office is responsible for protecting the health of smartphone users!…

https://www.phonegatealert.org/en/mobile-telephony-and-public-health-is-switzerland-an-absent-subscriber?

The situation is Kafkaesque:

  1. The FOPH declared itself incompetent and referred the matter back to OFCOM.
  2. OFCOM declared itself incompetent and referred the matter back to ESTI.
  3. The ESTI declared itself incompetent and declared the FOPH competent.
  4. The FOPH claims to be unaware of which office is competent in this case.

French ministerial announcements – an important step in our actions to protect the health of mobile phone users by Alert Phone Gate – October 25, 2019

French ministerial announcements: an important step in our actions to protect the health of mobile phone users

In a joint statement published today, the French ministries of Health, Ecology and Economy announced several proposals for action to strengthen health protection for mobile phone users in France and Europe. These are in the context of the recommendations made on 21 October 2019 by the French health & safety agency in its report entitled “Mobile phones worn close to the body and health”, and the mobilization actions of our association following the revelation in July 2016 by Dr Marc Arazi of the Phonegate industrial and health scandal.

For our President:

“This is undoubtedly another victory for our association and for all the partner organisations, independent scientists, lawyers who are members of the Consortium, journalists who work in France and abroad to protect the health of the 5 billion mobile phone users”.

However, we regret the lack of consultation with the associations that are fighting this fight. We reiterate our call for a meeting with the ministers concerned. To this end, we will take an initiative in the coming days.

ANSES recommendations call upon the public authorities and industry to face their health responsibilities – Anses Experts Report re Mobile Phones Worn Close to the Body and Health – Alert Phone Gate – October 21, 2019

The French National Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES) has just made public the first part of its expert group report entitled “Mobile phones close to the body and health“, dated July 2019. For Dr. Marc Arazi, who launched the alert on the Phonegate scandal in July 2016:

“This is undoubtedly a great step forward and a tremendous recognition for our international alert action. The public and industrial authorities are now faced with their responsibilities and must inform mobile phone users of the health risks involved.”

This had been expected since the end of 2017, following our appeal to the public authorities and the request made by the General Directorate of Health (Ministry for Solidarity and Health) and the Directorate of Risk Prevention (Ministry for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition) to ANSES to be informed of the health risks for adults and children exposed to specific absorption rate (SAR) levels of more than 2 W/kg (European legal limit).

In the next few days, we are going to analyze this 128-page report with the members of our international scientific committee.

Our initial reaction, however, to the recommendations of ANSES is positive. Here is the conclusion of the report signed by the Director General of ANSES, Roger Genet: ….

Apple’s iPhone: widespread deception over the real SAR levels by Alerte Phone Gate – September 10, 2019

(click on photo to enlarge)

We asked Dr. Arazi, President of Phonegate Alert, to review in detail the revelations made on August 21, 2019 by journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner Sam Roe in the Chicago Tribune and to place them in the overall context of the international Phonegate scandal. We start with the results of Apple’s iPhones, then in a next article we will discuss the results of the Korean manufacturer Samsung.

Get your signs ready and let’s make our voices heard.  And keep your signs for the next Action Day.

If there is no rally being organized in your area, please consider having a table at libraries, rec. centres, and summer markets where you can hand out material and talk with people about this. Or hold a coffee meeting with friends and neighbours, show them the “Soccer Mom” video [Local Soccer Mom Versus Multi Billion 5G Industry – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6M7YFI0I9kI]. This must be a grassroots issue because the governments are silent on the issue and the media is muzzled.
