ICNIRP (INTERNATIONAL COMMISSION for NON-IONIZING RADIATION PROTECTION)
A supposed absence of “consistency” and “established effects”.
A typical phrase in ICNIRP’s justification for rejecting the thousands of studies showing sub-thermal adverse effects is that there is “no consistent evidence of adverse … effects” . Thus, if a few studies, perhaps sponsored by industry show no effects, these negative findings are held by ICNIRP to outweigh all the positive findings by independent scientists. Another word based on similar reasoning is “established”.
Thus ICNIRP states that “Restrictions on the effects of exposure are based on established health effects” , although it is not often made clear how studies would provide the “established” effects necessary for instituting biological guidelines compared with heating safety levels, despite the fact that many scientists would accept that many sub-heating effects are now very well “established”..
