Op 15 mei 2012 ontving Stopumts onderstaand persbericht:


We are glad to announce the 2nd Workshop on Cell Phone/Tower Radiation Hazards and Solutions to be held on 9th July 2012 at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB) organized by Prof. Girish Kumar, Dept. of Electrical Engineering, IIT Bombay.

The first workshop was held on 20th Nov 2011 at VMCC, IIT Bombay. More than 100 people had attended the workshop including several representatives from cellular industry, doctors, researchers, concerned citizens and eminent Bollywood celebrity supporting the cause.

The objective is to create awareness of health risk associated with long term cell phone/ tower radiation exposure, harmful biological effects on plants growth, animals, bees and insects and also to explore the recent advances in this field

Interessant zijn de persoonlijke ervaringen van Prof. Kumar met draadloze technologie:

I have been working in the area of antennas for nearly three decades. During this period, I have written more than 200 papers in national and international journals and conferences and also written a book entitled ''Broadband Microstrip Antennas'' published by Artech House,USA.

In 2001, I started having strange health problems as we were always doing experiments with microwave circuits and antennas (occupational hazard) and without realizing my body was absorbing electromagnetic radiation from all these sources. Around that time mobile phones had started coming to India on a mass scale and cell towers started appearing on top of the residential buildings. I knew that sooner or later, people will start having problems due to microwave radiation.
We carried out our own research and did a lot of literature survey and found that several people around the world were getting affected. We prepared reports in an easy to understand manner and wrote to various concerned government bodies including the Department of Telecommunications, India.

In the past few years several people have contacted us complaining of health problems ranging from headache, sleep disturbance, hearing problems, memory loss, miscarriage and even cancer cases who are living close to mobile towers or are using mobile phones excessively. We have carried out radiation measurements at several places in Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Banglore, Gurgaon and others and have found a strong co-relation between high radiation levels and health problems.

I am conducting this workshop to increase awareness so that people can take preventive steps to protect themselves

Opm. Stopumts:
De workshop zou mogelijk een goede aanleiding kunnen zijn voor medewerkers van het Antennebureau, van het Kennisplatform EMV en van de Cie. EMV van de Nederlandse Gezondheidsraad om India te bezoeken.
