RF radiation from Smart Meters also 2B Carcinogen - Dr Robert Baan from IARC
maandag, 12 januari 2015 - Dossier: Voorlichting


Bron: Email from Dr Robert Baan, the principal author of the 2011 IARC Monograph on the carcinogenicity of radiofrequency radiation, in which he interprets the 2B classification of RFR as applicable to all form of RFR exposures, including Smart Meters and Wi-Fi:

Subject: EMF Class 2B Classification

Dear Dr Hudson,

Thank you for your message, which was forwarded to me, and to which I would like to respond as follows. The IARC Working Group classified “Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields” (RF-EMF) as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B). The information that formed the main basis for this evaluation was found in epidemiological studies on cell-phone use, where a slightly increased risk for glioma (amalignant form of brain cancer) and acoustic neuroma (a non-cancerous type) was reported among heavy users. There were some indications of increased cancer among radar-maintenance workers(occupational exposure), but no reliable data from studies among, e.g., people living close to base-station antennas, radio/TV towers, etc (environmental exposure). Although the key information came from mobile telephone use, the Working Group considered that the three types of exposure entail basically the same type of radiation, and decided to make an overall evaluation on RF-EMF, covering the whole radiofrequency region of the electromagnetic spectrum.In support of this, information from studies with experimental animals showed that effects on cancer incidence and cancer latency were seen with exposures to differentf requencies within the RF region.So the classification 2B, possibly carcinogenic, holds for all types of radiation within the radio frequency part of the electromagnetic spectrum, including the radiation emitted by base-station antennas, radio/TV towers, radar, Wi-Fi, smart meters, etc. An important point is the radiation level. The exposure from cellular phones (personal exposure) is substantially higher and much more focused (usually on the brain) thanexposures from radio/tv towers, antennas, or Wi-Fi. I hope this is useful. Thank you for your interest in our work.

Sincerely yours,
Robert A Baan PhDThe IARC MonographsIARC, Lyon, FRANCE
