As reported by Radiation Research

The Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection is calling for the release of new EMF hazard warning signs for mobile phones, wireless devices and other EMF sources. This action follows the release of a published paper by Professor Oleg Grigoriev and ex-deputy minister of communication, Dr Prof Yuri Zubarev.

News coverage such as “Due to low control over the safety of mobile phones, Russians risk their health” showcased the Russian expert warnings and public health opinions. The article featured numerous scientific and public health experts warning of the health impacts of cell phone radiation and our of date radiation compliance tests which allow excessive radiation. 

Professor Oleg Grigoriev is the Chairman for the Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, Dr.Sc. (radiobiology), Ph.D. (radiobiology & hygiene of non-ionizing radiation) Laureate of Prize of the Russian Federation Government (for science and technology, Chairman, Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, Member, Scientific Consul for Radiobiology of Russian Academy of Science, Member, IAC of the WHO EMF project

Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection  Resolutions to Protect Individuals from Wireless Radiation 


Official Recommendations: The Russian Federation specifically advises that those under the age of 18 should not use a mobile phone at all, recommends low- emission phones; and requires the following: on-device labelling notifying users that it is a source of RF-EMF, user guide information advising that ‘‘it is a source of harmful RF-EMF exposure’’ and the inclusion of courses in schools regarding mobile phones use and RF-EMF exposure issues. “Thus, for the first time in the human history, children using mobile telecommunications along with the adult population are included into the health risk group due to the RF EMF exposure….In children, the amount of so-called stem cells is larger than in adults and the stem cells were shown to be the most sensitive to RF EMF exposure….It is reasonable to set limits on mobile telecommunications use by children and adolescents, including ban on all types of advertisement of mobile telecommunications for children.”
