Information on the injunction suit of Mobilcom Austria against Dr. Oberfeld
On June 23, the first trial in the case mobilkom austria against Dr. Gerd Oberfeld took place at the Salzburg district court. The reason for the suit is a cancer study by Dr. Oberfeld, expert in environmental medicine, published at the end of January. He sees a direct connection between a significantly increased cancer incidence of residents with a near C-Network mobile base station. Mobilkom Austria has submitted evidences at court, which contradict the existence of a C-Network station. The next trial shall take place on November 4, 2008. The regional government of Steiermark has removed the study on the controversial site in Hausmannstätten from its webserver. http://www.live-pr.com, http://www.heise.de (German only) "It is about more than only the "false" study", DI Christian Laqué, Head of the technical department at T-Mobile Austria, commented on the ongoing trial against the Salzburg expert in environmental medicine. Therefore "a withdrawal of the Hausmannstätten study, where mobile radio is blamed to be the cause of cancer, is indispensable. http://www.pr-inside.com (German only) "With more accurate and more diligent research Dr. Oberfeld had rapidly could find out, that there never was a C-Network station in Hausmannstätten", says Maximilian Maier, management director of Form Mobilkommunikation. "Hearsay and assumptions are not sufficient for scientific work", he emphasizes and refers to the serious evidences submitted by mobilkom austria, such as the detailed historic records of the post and telegraphy administration, the declarations in lieu of an oath made by competent contemporary witnesses as well as the official chronology of the site (kind of protocol book). http://www.fmk.at (German only) In a press information of 25/06/2008, FMK reports that at the district court Salzburg on June 23, 2008, Dr. Gerd Oberfeld had not presented substantial evidence that there had been a C-Network station in Hausmannstätten which he had made responsible for cancer incidences. FMK has published on internet a chronology on the case of Dr. Oberfeld accomplished by an aerial view of Hausmannstätten in 1989. http://www.fmk.at (German only)
Consumer Advice Center NRW: More and more mobile phones near the radiation limit
The consumer advice center of NRW found out within the context of an examination of the self-commitment of mobile network providers that nearly every third mobile phone respects the radiation criteria of the environmental label Blue Angel (SAR value = 0,6 W/kg). But the center criticizes that an increasing number of mobile phones has a high SAR value. The consumer advice center of NRW therefore asks the mobile phone manufacturers to use all possibilities to reduce the SAR values. Furthermore, radiaton reduced devices should be given prominence: for example by labelling with the Blue Angel. http://www.vz-nrw.de (German only)
Study: RFID chips can interfere with medical devices
Radio frequency identification chips (RFID) used to track and trace products could cause critical care medical devices such as pacemakers and ventilators to fail, Dutch researchers said on Tuesday. Electromagnetic interference from the chips caused 22 problems that could endanger patients, ranging from completely stopping syringe pumps to switching off ventilators, said Erik Jan van Lieshout, a critical care physician at the Academic Medical Centre at the University of Amsterdam. http://www.reuters.com Bibliography: Electromagnetic Interference >From Radio Frequency Identification Inducing Potentially Hazardous Incidents in Critical Care Medical Equipment. van der Togt et al., JAMA. 2008;299(24):2884-2890, http://jama.ama-assn.org (Study Abstract)

Deletrious effect of UMTS on DNA – data valid?
Professor Alexander Lerchl of Jacobs-University in Bremen presented a scientific comment on the study of Schwarz et al. (2008):
"Radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (UMTS, 1,950 MHz) induce
genotoxic effects in vitro in human fibroblasts but not in lymphocytes".
In this study, the authors had reported about a significant increase of
DNA strand breaks after UMTS exposure far below the legal limits. Lerchl
describes the inconsistencies and statistical faults that he has found
during the review of the data published.
From the abstract: A meta-analysis of reported data was conducted to obtain a quantitative estimate (with 95% confidence intervals) of genotoxicity in RF-radiation-exposed cells compared with sham-exposed/unexposed control cells. The overall data indicated that (1) the difference between RF-radiation-exposed and sham-/unexposed controls as well as the effect size or standardized mean difference due to RF-radiation exposure was small with very few exceptions; (2) at certain RF radiation exposure conditions, there were statistically significant increases in genotoxicity for some end points; and (3) the mean indices for chromosomal aberrations and micronuclei in RF-radiation-exposed and sham-/unexposed controls were within the spontaneous levels reported in the historical database. Considerable evidence for publication bias was found in the meta-analysis.

Australian Researcher on Brain Tumor Risk of long-time Mobile Phone Use
Interphone researcher Professor Bruce Armstrong of the University of
Sydney School of Public Health has expressed concern over the tumor risks
associated with the long-term use of mobile phones. "I think the
evidence that is accumulating is pointing towards an effect of mobile
phones on tumors," told in the Australian current affairs show "TodayTonight".
Armstrong is leading the Australian component of the Interphone project.

AUVA denies harmlessness of mobile radio
In a press release of 28/04/2008, Allgemeine Unfallversicherungsanstalt
in Österreich (AUVA) (General Insurance Company in Austria) reacts
with indignation to the press information of the Scientific Radio Council
(Wissenschaftlicher Beirat Funk, WBF) of 23/04/2008 about the harmlessness
of intensive mobile phone use. The AUVA-expert Dipl.-Ing. Dr. Hamid Molla-Djafari
and Univ.-Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Mosgöller of Medizinische Universität
Wien answer: "If there have not been shown deleterious effects so
far, that does not mean that there are none." AUVA refers in this
context again to the ATHEM-project, intiated by itself, that to their
own opinion has found new scientific results of best quality being relevant
for the risk evaluation of intensive mobile phone use. AUVA press release
Review of the Swiss decree on the protection against non-ionizing radiation: physical closeness to mobile antennae
In a decision of November 6, 2007, the Swiss Federal Court dealt with
the question when nearby mobile radio antennae are part of a station to
be examined and have to be considered with regard to the respect of limits.
With a review of the decree on the protection against non-ionizing radiation
(Verordnung über den Schutz vor nichtionisierender Strahlung, NISV)
the request of the Federal Court shall be realized. The aim of the review
is to establish the existing experience in the decree on the protection
against non-ionizing radiation (NISV) and to see at the same time that
it is made clear which antennae belong to which station, independently
from the time sequence they were approved in. However, the limits of the
NISV will not be changed. The audit has now been launched. http://www.bafu.admin.ch
