Benevento caution

WARNING!  EMF radiation from this PC depletes your bioenergy! Get protection for your safety!

Your body has an energy signalling system that's vital for its proper function. See Energy Systems.  You need to protect it!
Don't exposure yourself to EMFs without protection. You wouldn't expose yourself to the sun for hours - you'd get skin cancer soon enough.  EMF is invisible and every day EMF stress affects your body putting your health at risk; a wide range of symptoms result. Just read What Doctors warnEMF radiation depletes bioenergy, compromising your immune system! There is a cumulative effect. Take advantage of my website to find out more about these modern day hazards.
An amazing new protection that really works is now available with GIA Wellness. You can avoid adverse health risks and enjoy a New Generation of Wellness in an increasingly electropolluted world. Electropollution is a real environmental toxin.

Especially don't expose your child to EMFs. They have a lifetime more to bear this and the full extent of risks is not yet known!

Benevento caution - 19  September  2006

Prominent scientists warn about the human health dangers of exposure to EMF radiation and the need for adopting the Precautionary Principle.

ICEMS, the International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety, makes available on its website  www.icems.eu  both the Benevente Resolution and the Catania Resolution.  These were in a single PDF file that you should be able to open with Adobe Acrobat Reader.

The International Commission on Electromagnetic Safety, is a not-for-profit group of concerned scientists.

The resolutions are the sole perogative of the ICEMS and the signatories, however, I found that on the occasion I saw it they read as follows -

Benevento  Resolution

The International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety (ICEMS) held an international conference entitled -
"The Precautionary EMF Approach: Rationale, Legislation and Implementation",
hosted by the City of Benevento, Italy, on 22, 23 & 24 February 2006.

The meeting was dedicated to W. Ross Adey, M.D. (1922 - 2004).

The scientists at the conference endorsed and extended the 2002 Catania Resolution and resolved that:

  1. More evidence has accumulated suggesting that there are adverse health effects from occupational and public exposures to electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields, or EMF1, at current exposure levels.
    What is needed, but not yet realized, is a comprehensive, independent and transparent examination of the evidence pointing to this emerging, potential public health issue.

  2. Resources for such an assessment are grossly inadequate despite the explosive growth of technologies for wireless communications as well as the huge ongoing investment in power transmission.

  3. There is evidence that present sources of funding bias the analysis and interpretation of research findings towards rejection of evidence of possible public health risks.

  4. Arguments that weak (low intensity) EMF cannot affect biological systems do not represent the current spectrum of scientific opinion.

  5. Based on our review of the science, biological effects can occur from exposures to both extremely low frequency fields (ELF EMF) and radiation frequency fields (RF EMF).  Epidemiological and in vivo as well as in vitro experimental evidence demonstrates that exposure to some ELF EMF can increase cancer risk in children and induce other health problems in both children and adults.
    Further, there is accumulating epidemiological evidence indicating an increased brain tumor risk from long-term use of mobile phones, the first RF EMF that has started to be comprehensively studied.
    Epidemiological and laboratory studies that show increased risks for cancers and other diseases from occupational exposures to EMF cannot be ignored.  Laboratory studies on cancers and other diseases have reported that hypersensitivity to EMF may be due in part to a genetic predisposition.

  6. We encourage governments to adopt a framework of guidelines for public and occupational EMF exposure that reflect the Precautionary Principle2 -- as some nations have already done.  Precautionary strategies should be based on design and performance standards and may not necessarily define numerical thresholds because such thresholds may erroneously be interpreted as levels below which no adverse effect can occur.  These strategies should include:

6.1.  Promote alternatives to wireless communication systems, e.g., use of fibre optics and coaxial cables; design cellular phones that meet safer performance specifications, including radiating away from the head; preserve existing land line phone networks; place power lines underground in the vicinity of populated areas, only siting them in residential neighborhoods as a last resort;

6.2.  Inform the population of the potential risks of cellphone and cordless phone use. Advise consumers to limit wireless calls and use a land line for long conversations.

6.3.  Limit cell phone and cordless phone use by young children and teenagers to the lowest possible level and urgently ban telecom companies from marketing to them.

6.4.  Require manufacturers to supply hands-free kits (via speakerphones or ear phones), with each cellphone and cordless phone.

6.5.  Protect workers from EMF generating equipment, through access restrictions and EMF shielding of both individuals and physical structures.

6.6.  Plan communications antenna and tower locations to minimize human exposure.  Register mobile phone base stations with local planning agencies and use computer mapping technology to inform the public on possible exposures.
Proposals for city-wide wireless access systems (e.g. Wi-Fi, WIMAX, broadband over cable or power-line or equivalent technologies) should require public review of potential EMF exposure and, if installed, municipalities should ensure this information is available to al and updated on a timely basis.

6.7. Designate wireless-free zones in cities, in public buildings (schools, hospitals, residential areas) and, on public transit, to permit access by persons who are hypersensitive to EMF.

  1. ICEMS3 is willing to assist authorities in the development of an EMF research agenda.
    ICEMS encourages the development of clinical and epidemiological protocols for investigations of geographical clusters of persons with reported allergic reactions and other diseases or sensitivities to EMF, and document the effectiveness of preventive interventions.
    ICEMS encourages scientific collaboration and reviews of research findings.

We, the undersigned scientists, agree to assist in the promotion of EMF research and the development of strategies to protect public health through the wise application of the Precautionary Principle.

1  EMF in this resolution, refers to zero to 300 GHz.

2  The Precautionary Principle states -
When there are indications of possible adverse effects, though they remain uncertain, the risks from doing nothing may be far greater than the risks of taking action to control these exposures,
The Precautionary Principle shifts the burden of proof from those suspecting a risk to those who discount it.

CATANIA  Resolution

September 2002

The Scientists at the International Conference
"State of the Research on Electromagnetic Fields -Scientific and Legal Issues",
organized by ISPESL*, the University of Vienna and the City of Catania, held in Catania, Italy on 13th - 14th September 2002, agree to the following:
  1. Epidemiological and in vivo and in vitro experimental evidence demonstrates the existence of electromagnetic field (EMF) induced effects, some of which can be adverse to health.

  2. We take exception to arguments suggesting that weak (low intensity) EMF cannot interact with tissue.

  3. There are plausible mechanistic explanations for EMF-induced effects which occur below present ICNIRP and IEEE guidelines and exposure recommendations by the EU.

  4. The weight of evidence calls for preventive strategies based on the precautionary principle.  At times the precautionary principle may involve prudent avoidance and prudent use.

  5. We are aware that there are gaps in knowledge on biological and physical effects, and health risks related to EMF, which require additional independent research.

  6. The undersigned scientists agree to establish an international scientific commission to promote research for the protection of public health from EMF and to develop the scientific basis and strategies for assessment, prevention, management and communication of risk, based on the Precautionary Principle.

To see the actual resolutions that are the sole perogative of the ICEMS and the signatories, go to the IECMS website  www.icems.eu  where they are available in PDF file that can be opened with Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Here you have, once again, a significant number of credible scientists and researchers, along with representatives of the people, stressing the serious nature of human exposure to EMF radiation and highlighting that it is having an adverse effect on human health.  They strongly recommend that you take the Precautionary Principle.  Fortunately, I can assist you with that.


You have a sophisticated body electronics system that is vital to its function.  So don't allow yourself to be exposed to health risks invisibly imposed by EMF radiation from electric & magnetic fields and pulsed microwave transmission signals, which are at frequencies that disrupt your brain and cellular functions.  Cellphone and cordless phone use does carry well-established risks!  EMF stress occurs with all other electric and electronic devices, too.  There are adverse health effects - see What Doctors Warn.  Scientific studies have shown that EMF exposure has a cumulative effect, increasing over time.   Be sure to reduce the risks for your children who face a lifetime of exposure and those with poorer health conditions, they are especially at risk.  For an appreciation of this start at Child Risks.

Depletion of your body's bioenergy causes a lowered energetic capability, at a fundamental atomic level.  See Atoms & EMF.  Disturbance of it's inherent bioenergetic system results in disruptions to cellular functions and a compromised immune system.  Start at Energy Systems.  Quite simply, your body systems are no longer able to work in the way that they would if such destructive interference from EMR was not imposed on you.  To see how human energies are affected by common electronic devices see bioenergy test charts showing patterns typical of that experienced by everyone from Human Tests.

If you can't understand why the authorities are allowing you to be exposed to such risks, start at my Research page.  So-called "safety" regulations only consider thermal (tissue heating) effects, but frighteningly disregard low frequency biological effects. Strong vested interests resist change to this in spite of mounting evidence.  For your own health and safety, and sustainable wellness, you need to adopt the Precautionary Principle with some urgency to avoid the risks of the invisible hazard of EMR that do compromise your health.  You can now make use of the amazing new GIA Wellness protection available to reduce the effects of EMR, and have the chance to enjoy sustainable wellness.  See GIA Wellness Protection Products.

Find out more so you can immediately protect yourself and achieve optimal health in our increasingly electropolluted world.


Health and safety needs to be treated seriously.  Be sure to get GIA Wellness (formerly Biopro Technology) protection for others that you care about, too.  Tell others about my website and the wealth of information it provides so they can avail themselves of this and the amazing new Biopro protection against the adverse health risks of increasing exposure to EMF in our modern technological world.


Others to assist in worthwhile protection enterprise?

Do you know of any enterprising people who care about others and may like to join with me in this worthwhile undertaking of providing protection to others from this growing  EMF radiation hazard?  You'll enjoy an additional income stream, too.
