" Experts call for a reduction of wave exposure

Following a roundtable on RF initiated by the Ministry of Health in collaboration with the Ministry of Sustainable Development and the State Secretariat for Strategic Studies and development of the digital economy, an operational committee the subject has been established .

COPIC. His mission? Study the feasibility of lowering exposure to electromagnetic waves emitted by mobile phone masts while maintaining quality coverage. COPIC  has published its report on the results obtained on 16 experimental areas .
A low level of exposure

Modeling implemented by experts calculated an exposure level several hundred million points ( facades, buildings , ground surfaces) . It shows that 99% of the modeled exposure levels are below 2.7 volts per meter (V / m ), while the regulatory limits for the frequencies used by mobile phones are between 40 V / m and 61 V / m.

In addition , experts point out that in 20% of cases , the antennas are not the main source of exposure. Other sources such as databases cordless phone, the FM radio transmitters , wireless multiservice boxes (see figure below ) ...

Different areas of electromagnetic waves

Figure: Different areas of electromagnetic waves. Source : Report of COPIC. 3 times more antennas to reduce exposures

For each study area, the most exposed point (PPE) where levels are significantly higher than the average for the area have been identified. The studies show that treatment of these PPE (engineering change or location) would reduce exposure by maintaining a satisfactory coverage. Furthermore, it should be at least multiplied by three the number of antennas sites to restore the original coverage while maintaining a lower to 0.6 V / m in frontage and ground level exposure.  The exhibition will be greatest with 4G

Finally, a simulation of the impact of the antenna deployment 4G public exposure has confirmed an increase in exposure, with an average increase in exposure façade and ground approximately 50%. For example, the study Paris (14th arrondissement) area , the average exposure increased from 0.6 V / m to 0.9 V / m, which is still largely below the regulatory limits
From Nancy de Méritens
Septieme Factory

Jean Heches and I, we produced and directed a documentary about the manipulation of science, by the mobile phone industry, known as "product defence strategy". We have produced this documentary with our own personal financing. It took us more than two years to complete it.

Now we are launching a fund-raising campaign to finance an english version (with voice over, and english commentary) to distribute the movie worldwide. it will be access through Internet, and in DVD version.
We have started on a french crowd-funding website. The crowd-funding campaign has 3000 € as first aim (to be sure to reach it), but our total need is 10,000 €.

You can help us by spreading the information in your network. We also need to find partners to relay the distribution of the DVDs in foreign countries, as it will be more convenient and less expensive to have local associations that will distribute the DVDs... So any form of partnership and help are welcome.

We are planning to have the english version ready by the end of January.

You will find all information, and an english trailer of the documentary following this link.


If you need any additional information, we will be happy to answer.

Thank you in advance

School Wi Fi Report from Israel by Veronique  Domshlak

I would like to share with you the fight I led in order to turn off Wi-Fi networks in Haifa schools.


My awareness to the subject was raised by a TV report on channel 10, about WiFi in schools, at the start of October 2013.  This report caused me to check the subject and understand that there is resistance to the subject in leading research centers in the world. At the start, I checked Haifa municipality policy on the subject. I found that Haifa municipality in principle resists installing WiFi in schools. Despite that, it was decided to make an experiment in several schools in the city.  I found that Alon school (where my son learns) is one of the only 4 elementary schools in the city where WiFi networks have been operating in a frame of research since 2012. In addition, Alon school is one of 3 schools in Haifa, where the experiment was widened to digital books pilot study, and for this purpose, more wireless computers were entered in the schools.  My feeling was that they have decided to run an experiment at the expense of our children, without informing us!   I checked also Ministry of Education's position, and I found that in the last executive form (July 2013), it was written:  4.1- wired network installation should be preferred in schools. On the other hand, in the next section, 4.2 it was written that in cases where a problem exists to install wired network only, it is possible to install wireless network.


I understood that the Ministry of Education published inconclusive guidelines on purpose. On one hand, the Ministry is trying to be seen as a body that takes care of the children, and on the other hand, the Ministry leaves holes in its guidelines, in order to put quickly the WiFi in maximum classrooms and to set facts before the high court decision (that is expected during the next days). !

At this stage, I approached Alon school's principal in order to find out about the subject. I tried to understand if she was aware of the risks. I emphasized, that I am not against progress, and that distributing wired computers would enable progress without the unnecessary irradiation of the children and school team. I explained also the differences between using a router in your private house vs. in the classrooms:

1) Inside the house each person can decide whether to use WiFi or not. The radiation is not imposed.

2) In the house the option of wireless can be turned on in the router, and in all the computers, only according to the need and not during all the time.

3) In the house there are usually only 2-3 computers and not 30-40 that look for the router (and more 30-40 cell phones and two especially strong routers).

4) There is compulsory education law, this law forces the children to be in schools 5-8 hours aday, they have nowhere to run away. Again, forcing radiation on them. 

(it would be noted that the feeling was, that in all her first responses, the school principal was guided by Haifa municipality and by the Ministry of Education).  

In her first response the principal referred me to the new executive form of the Ministry of Education, that was published after the last high court decision. She referred also to radiation measurements and periodical safety examinations, that are done by the municipality, and she tried to calm me down that she and the teaching team did not want to endanger themselves and that the computers carts are loaded only after the school day.   I decided to check with my son and other children in his classroom, what happens in practice in the classrooms.  I understood that there were two carts in each school (in each floor a cart for the classrooms on the same floor). One was in their classroom, serving 5th grade1, 6th grade1, 2 classrooms. The second was in the warehouse and serves 4th grade1, 2, and 5th grade2. It turned out that on their floor there was no warehouse, and so they put the cart inside my son's classroom and there the computers were loaded each time when the cart was returned to them (including when the children were in the class). 


When I continued to approach the school principal:

-  I raised the problem of ignoring the loading procedure

- I tried to understand why they did not use wired internet like the Ministry of Education guided (why was it not possible?)

- I passed on information showing harm from non ionizing radiation to the reproductive system (especially sperm quality), DNA breaks, BBB penetration, EHS development, the classification of this radiation as 2B carcinogen, and more. All of these dangers are much higher for children whose brains are not developed yet, and in adolescents.  

- I passed on alternatives, including examples of distribution of wired network and cost assessments.

In addition to this:

I approached the parents of my son's classrooms, I informed them on the subject and suggested that if the wireless networks were not stopped in school, we would sign on non consent form against the participation of our children in the classrooms and we would pass it on to the school principal.

I wrote a very strong letter to several people responsible for the issue in Haifa municipality. Among the rest I was asking to check WiFi distribution in all Haifa schools thoroughly, and to pass me on a list of all schools where there are wireless networks. 

I wrote to the responsible in the Ministry of Education, Mr. Noam Koriat (following his request though the school  principal)- manager of knowledge management development and organization  from the Ministry of Education. His response does not justify its description here. I found a parent representative from Herzel school and we decided to cooperate together. I established a facebook group on the subject of WiFi in Haifa schools. I was active in other groups on facebook. I tried to understand from the parents what I could not receive from the municipality (whose responses had no grasp in reality and each response contradicted the previous one)-  in which schools in Haifa WiFi is used (so far I still don't have the full picture).


I asked help from experts (Ram Dishon, Amir Borenstein).

I got help from fights of parents in elementary schools in Tel Aviv.

I worked with the Haifa Green Party, who raised the subject of WiFi in Haifa schools to the city council already 1.5 years ago, and they brought to the situation where the general policy of Haifa municipality would be to avoid using internet wireless networks in its area.  

There was a stage when I received phone calls from my son's teacher and the school principal in attempt to calm me down, that there is no danger in using WiFi and anyway the use is everywhere. A change happened when the school principal informed Haifa municipality and the responsible on the digital books pilot in the Ministry of Education that she stopped the pilot and using computers in classrooms at all, until radiation measurements would be done in her school. Afterwards the school principal sent me a document on the communication system from Haifa municipality, that deals with the equipment standards. This document and also the future radiation measurement's meaning was not clear, because:

1) there are no definitions of what is being checked. The examinations are complicated and in practice are not done as they should be.

2) the results are meaningless because the threshold standard in Israel is 400 times higher than in Europe.

They will not convince us and will not make us want wireless internet networks in the schools where our children learn. Afterwards the school principal sent me "Appendix 2, standards book for program infrastructures" and drew my attention to the sentence "installing wired and wireless networks in classrooms and public areas in schools" This is an older version of the executive form, from 2010.

At this stage I went again to the parents and to the central parents committee chairman of the school. I updated in everything that had happened and the fact that Wi-Fi use was stopped temporarily until the radiation measurements. 


I explained why it was not right to rely on the results from this radiation measurement and that I was not ready to continue and endanger my son for one more day. I called everyone to sign on non consent form and to join the fight. I asked to understand the position of the central committee (until now their voice is not heard). I suggested a meeting together with parents from two other schools with experts. I was happy that this letter was passed on by the central committee chairman to the school principal.  Then the school principal informed me that a discussion was supposed to start soon in the municipality about using wireless networks in all four schools in the project and that meanwhile the pilot was stopped. A week afterwards (25/11 – a one and a half month after starting the fight), I was told by the school principal that it was decided in Haifa municipality to stop using wireless networks in classrooms immediately in the four schools where there is WiFi experiment. 

The digital books pilot will continue by downloading the digital books to all wireless computers for one time, (with periodical updates). The work near computers will be without using internet. Filing works will be done by DOK.

This solution is temporary until wired networks will be installed gradually in all classrooms in all schools. Regarding downloading the wireless computers, the school principal will make sure that it would be done only after 17:00, before locking the classrooms and until the father of the house comes early in the morning. In any case the download will not be done while the pupils are inside the classrooms.

The principal thanked me from the bottom of her heart for drawing her attention to the subject, because she was not aware of the danger, and I thanked her for her openness to the subject, for her cooperation, for implementing the precautionary principle and for putting the pupils health at the top of the priorities.

I hope this information will help parents and school principals who are trying to make a change.

This link  has a recording you can access.  The recording is over 8 hours long.

I think you can pull out and listen to individual testimonies as there is a list of attendees on the side of the screen that one can click on.  However it says there were 27 attendees and I only see five that are listed.  

I do not see any written transcripts available. You might want to contact Russel MacDonald 613-991-6990 x111 who is listed as the contact.
It's possible he could send you transcripts.
