A letter to the Polish Ministry of Health

For attention of Mr Adam Bodnar – Rzecznik Praw Obywatelskich

Dear Łukasz Szumowski,

I was shocked to learn that the Polish Ministry of Health has sanctioned an increase in the permitted levels of electromagnetic microwave radiation in Poland. This, in full knowledge of the fact that electromagnetic microwave radiation is a known carcinogen whose dangers to the well-being of man, animals, birds and insects is recognised in more than ten thousand independent peer reviewed scientific documents from scientists based all over the world.

Sanctioning an increase in existing ‘known to be harmful’ radiation levels goes directly against the Precautionary Principle enshrined in European law and recognised by all EU member states. What’s more, this is being done to Polish citizens with grossly inadequate time being apportioned for public consultation, and therefore “without public consent”.

The Polish public share, with all other EU States ‘the right to informed consent’ as enshrined in UN Law. By proposing to push through this Act with grossly inadequate consultation, you are standing against fundamental democratic principles and a significant number of globally recognised International Conventions respecting fundamental human rights.

The exposure of citizens, and indeed the full spectrum of the natural environment, to non ionised pulsed high-frequency radiation, such as that being directed by 5G, constitutes a breach of Human Rights. Turning your back on public concerns and supporting the telecommunication industry’s rush to introduce 5G microwave irradiation – with absolutely no health checks being carried out into its safety – is a fundamental act of injustice that will not stand-up in a bona fide court of law.

We therefore urge you to rethink your actions before taking any further steps. Aside from Polish citizens, tens of thousands of tourists from all over the World take great pleasure in visiting your Country each year. This will cease once such visitors become informed that permitted radiation levels in Poland have been allowed to far exceed genuine independent scientific guidelines.

We most urgently call upon you to place the health and safety of your constituency before the demands of an industry intent upon mass marketing an untested technology, internationally recognised for its capacity to be an acute danger to public health.
