The scientific panel of the Roccaraso Congress on Electromagnetic Fields and Public Health Standards recognises that there exists an extensive body of evidence in the international, peer reviewed literature indicating that
(1) Exposure to ELF magnetic fields and RF/MW fields (particularly ELF amplitude and pulse-modulated) of non-thermal intensity can cause adverse health effects such as increased incidence of cancer, neurolgical, cardiac and reproductive disturbances.
(2) These effects are consistent with experimental findings in tissue cultures, animals and humans compiled over the last forty years, including endocrinological and immunological effects, induction of oncogenes and proto-oncogenes, and altered integrity of cells.
This evidence urgently calls for:
1. Involvement of local and/or regional authorities in the development of Base-station siting strategies and plans, that involve the commercial operators, local residents and achieves a mean public exposure level of 100 µW/m² (0,2 volt/metro), and a quality target of maximum exposure of local residents not exceeding 1 mW/m² (0,6 volt/metro).
2. Information be made available for consumers about exposure levels under normal conditions of usage of all radiating equipment, particularly mobile phones and their ear-pieces.
We recommend the establishment of an industrially independent Commission in Italy: · To collect epidemiological data from cell phone users and from populations in the vicinity of Base-stations.
· To study the real exposures from cell phones and ear pieces to aquire the information necessary to ensure adequate protection of cell phone users.
