For 2 decades now, insurance companies have refused to cover wireless radiation exposure risk.
The Observer, published in 1999, stated: “Lloyd’s underwriters refuse to insure mobile phone manufacturers against the risk of damage to users’ health.”
Concern about the safety of mobile phones has prompted a leading Lloyd’s underwriter to refuse to insure phone manufacturers against the risk of damage to users’ health.
The move comes amid mounting concern about the industry’s influence on research into the long-term effects of using a mobile.
The London market provides insurance for everything from aircraft to footballers’ legs. But fears that mobile phones will be linked to illnesses such as cancer and Alzheimer’s disease have prompted John Fenn, of underwriting group Stirling, to refuse to cover manufacturers against the risk of being sued if mobiles turn out to cause long-term damage.
New research published last week by Bristol University scientist Dr Alan Preece showed a ‘highly significant’ effect from mobile phone signals on brain function. Some previous studies linked mobiles to increased tumours in rodents, but they have been contradicted by other research.
The Government has ordered the National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB) – responsible for monitoring radiation safety standards in everything from Sellafield to sunlight – to set up an independent group to identify possible areas for research.
Liberal Democrat MP Phil Willis, who is pressing for a fuller parliamentary debate on the issue, condemned the initiative as ‘a sop to the public and a sop to the industry’.
He said: ‘I have asked three network operators if they will give insurance against future health risk, and they have all said they cannot.’
The Federation of the Electronics Industry, which represents mobile phone manufacturers and networks, said there was no proven reason for insurers to refuse cover. Spokesman Tom Wills Sandford said: ‘I am surprised. I would be confident that there would be people who would cover that risk, because there is no scientific proof of health risk.’
But Fenn said: ‘There are people in the insurance market who close their eyes to the issue because they say there is no scientific proof of a problem. If you go back to asbestos, it “wasn’t a problem” at one time either.’ Asbestos claims helped bring the Lloyd’s market to its knees in the early 1990s.
Experts at the NRPB say they cannot give mobile phones a clean bill of health until comprehensive research has been carried out into the non-thermal effects of microwave radiation emitted by handsets.
The U.S. guidelines, testing and legislation regarding wireless devices and infrastructure are 20+ years old. They didn’t protect us much then and obviously more devices and infrastructure have been introduced since.
The U.S. government is supposed to protect the public and the environment from Big Tech. Every day their refusal to act on our behalf becomes more ridiculous and heartbreaking.
Increased sickness experienced by those living and working near cell towers and other wireless and electrical infrastructure is nothing new. Activist Virginia Farver’s son died from brain cancer in 2008. He was living in a college dorm near a cell tower when he was diagnosed. Many others didn’t fare well at that location either.
If the government is indeed working for We the People, all it needs to do is change the radio frequencies being used to transmit data and voice signals. It only requires a turn in the frequency dials.
But no, they’d rather choose to cooperate with the requirements of the corporation to destroy the brains, so that the Sheeples stay as they are.
