In my column published on the Washington Times Community pages, I proposed “The Round-Table Initiative” on cell phones and health and explained the reasons for my initiative. I concluded my column by saying:
“…It is time to stop squabbling who is better expert in reviewing and interpreting science. It is time to reach consensus what the scientific evidence tells us. It is time to agree on international scale whether and how the Precautionary Principle should be implemented. It is time to stop misleading and confusing the general public...”
Here is the first, very general, draft of the proposal. More details will come later, after consultations with ICNIRP, BioInitiative, MMF, WHO and individual scientists.
The Round-Table Initiative
- To review the available scientific evidence
- To determine whether the current safety standards are sufficient to protect all users
- To determine whether the implementation of the Precautionary Principle is justified
- The Round Table Initiative should be executed under the auspices of the WHO (not the WHO EMF-Project that in opinions of many is inert and “discredited”)
- The three major players should be invited:
- ICNIRP – International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection
- the BioInitiative
- Mobile Manufacturers Forum
- The debate of The Round-Table Initiative should be moderated by a person, known for impartiality and agreed upon by all three major players;
- The moderator should be also the person acceptable for the major players as the go-between-mediator in case the debate reaches impasse.
