Workshop on non-ionizing radiation from wireless technology - CEST2019

- Organization of a special thematic Workshop “The Non Ionizing radiation from Wireless technology: A 21 Century Revolution or a Global pollution and Health hazard”.


To Medical Professionals, other Healthcare Professionals, Educators and Organized Parent Organizations,

We have the pleasure and honor to invite you to the special thematic Workshop organized on 5th of September, 15:00-19:00, in the framework of the 16th International Conference on Environmental Science and Technology (CEST2019) from 4 to 7 September in Rhodes. The workshop is titled:

“The Non Ionizing radiation from Wireless technology: A 21 Century Revolution or a Global pollution and Health hazard”

The aim of this thematic Workshop is to inform the scientific world about the “state of the art” of a complex issue of public health and environment of universal scope that causes scientific controversy and a real challenge especially for the medical world. The scientific evidence of severe health effects from the geometrically increasing exposure of the entire population, and in particular children, to, among others, possibly carcinogenic radiation (IARC 2011), is constantly emerging. Experts in the field, medical doctors and other scientists will analyze/evaluate scientific data by 2019. They will address open questions about heath impacts in the long term, with focus on cancer, neurological effects especially on the brain, effects on DNA, reproductive system, and related mechanisms of this largely uncontrolled technology. Fetus and childhood till adolescence will be in focus, due to their special vulnerability and increased exposure.

Moderators of the session are Dr. Stella Canna Mihaelidou, Chair of the Cyprus Committee for the Environment and Children’s Health, Expert on Health and Environment, Dr. Piero Lercher, responsible for Environmental Health at the Vienna Doctor’s Chamber, a specialist in preventive, occupational and environmental medicine, and Dr Theodoros Metsis Mechanical Engineer Electrical and Environmental expert in electrosmoke. The Research Director at Ramazzini Institute’s Cancer Center, Dr Fiorella Belpoggi, is expected to present her recent research, which is crucial for the re-evaluation of EMF/RF from carcinogen 2B to 2A up to class 1 human carcinogen. At the end, good practices will be presented on how to reduce home and school exposure. Supporting material will be distributed. The agenda of the session is attached. If you wish to have a few minutes intervention please inform us by 20/7/2019.

CEST Organizing Committee has decided to apply a special registration fee of 100 Euros for attending the workshop. Certificates of participation will be given to all the workshop delegates. Please contact us at to register.

Press Release

“The Non Ionizing radiation from Wireless technology: A 21 Century Revolution or a Global pollution and Health hazard” 

Wireless technology is fast evolving whilst potential health Impacts of the emitted  non ionizing radiation ((Electromagnetic Fields/Radiofrequencies)  include carcinogenicity (class 2b IARC 2011), developmental neurotoxicity, effects on DNA, on fertility, hypersensitivity and other serious effects well documented in peer reviewed studies. What is the present level of documented scientific evidence? How children in particular are affected? How humanity can get the maximum benefits of this technology in harmony with Health and Environmental protection? It is clear responsibility of the scientific community to communicate the state of the art of  serious risks so that science based policies, preventive actions  and  new safety standards can be promoted. The aim of this session is to cover holistically many different aspects of the problem by gathering knowledge and expertise from physicians, public health specialists, epidemiologists, toxicologists, chemists, radiation experts, engineers and environmental scientists in the following scientific areas:

1.   Human Exposure and  Health  Adverse Effects- Vulnerability of  Children, and risks for  future generations
2.    Environmental impact in other forms of life in the planet and the ecosystem.
3.    Potential synergies with toxic chemicals
4.    Hazards from closed related new emerging technologies e.g. 5G 
5.    Prevention, International Policies, Guidelines and Actions for Public Health
