Our action has now taken form with the creation of an association governed by the law of
1901, called « Alerte Phonegate » and whose notice was published in the Journal officiel
des associations et fondations d’entreprises (Official Journal for Associations and Business Foundations)
of March 10, 2018.
The purpose of the new organization is to establish, both in France and Europe
as well as internationally, a network of individuals, organizations and communities fighting for the recognition,
protection and defense of the health of users of mobile phones within the framework, inter alia, of the
health and industrial scandal called “Phonegate”.
The constitutive General Assembly has appointed as Founding President, Dr. Marc Arazi, who is
proud of this vote of confidence, “…thanks to the many qualified individuals and organizations who
have already agreed to actively participate in the important work ahead to alert international
institutions and propose appropriate measures to protect the health of more than 6 billion mobile
phone users.”While the first two interventions of Alerte Phonegate are intended for the United States, in reality they concern all of us, so much are public health issues cross-linked today.
The first concerns the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), located in Washington DC
(USA), which on March 22, 2018, held an important public meeting.With our U.S. partner, the
Environmental Health Trust, we have written to the Chairman of the FCC, Mr. Ajit Pai, to share with
him in detail the results of the tests conducted by the National Frequencies Agency (ANFR) and the
report of the National Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES)
published in July 2016.
Read the letter addressed to the FCC.
With the President of the EHT, Dr. Devra Davis, we are asking the FCC to urgently establish new
measurement protocols for thresholds of exposure to radiofrequency radiation emitted by mobile
phones in contact with the body. We hope to convince the U.S. agency to use its effective
international influence to send a strong signal to both regulators and manufacturers. It is high time to
put an end to the “Far West” which prevails to the detriment of the health of mobile phone users.
The second action is intended for the scientific authors of the report on exposure to the radiofrequency
radiation of mobile phones on rats and mice published on February 2, 2018 by the U.S. National
Toxicology Program. We have already submitted our comments for the Peer Review. Dr. Marc Arazi
will be in Durham, North Carolina on March 27 to comment in person on his analysis of the results
and especially on some of the remarks of one of the authors of the study, John Bucher.
Dr Annie J Sasco, physician and epidemiologist, former Director of the Unit of Epidemiology for Cancer
Prevention at the International Agency for Research on Cancer -World Health Organization (IARC-
WHO) will also be there and present in person her comments.
