Announcement:

The 16th International Conference on Environmental Science and Technology (CEST2019) will commence in Rhodes during the 4th and 7th of September 2019, and a topic on the Impacts of Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Radiation (EMF/RF) on Health will be included in the agenda of the Conference for the first time. The description of the thematic area on EMF/RF follows:  

“The Non Ionizing radiation from Wireless technology: A 21 Century Revolution or a Global pollution and Health hazard”

 


Wireless technology  is fast evolving whilst potential health Impacts of the emitted  non ionizing radiation ((Electromagnetic Fields/Radiofrequencies)  include carcinogenicity (class 2b IARC 2011), developmental neurotoxicity, effects on DNA, on fertility, hypersensitivity and other serious effects well documented in peer reviewed studies. What is the present level of documented scientific evidence? How children in particular are affected? How humanity can get the maximum benefits of this technology in harmony with Health and Environmental protection? It is clear responsibility of the scientific community to communicate the state of the art of  serious risks so that science based policies, preventive actions  and  new safety standards can be promoted. The aim of this session is to cover holistically many different aspects of the problem by gathering knowledge and expertise from physicians, public health specialists, epidemiologists, toxicologists, chemists, radiation experts, engineers and environmental scientists in the following scientific areas:

1.   Human Exposure and  Health  Adverse Effects- Vulnerability of  Children, and risks for future generations
2.    Environmental impact in other forms of life in the planet and the ecosystem.
3.    Potential synergies with toxic chemicals
4.    Hazards from closed related new emerging technologies e.g 5G 
5.    Prevention, International Policies, Guidelines and Actions for Public Health


Conveners:
- Dr Stella Canna Michaelidou, Expert on Environment and Health,    President of the Cyprus Committee on Children’s Environment and Health
- Dr Piero Lercher  responsible on Environmental Health at the Vienna Doctor’s Chamber, specialist in preventive, occupational and environmental medicine
