A basic reality: radiofrequencies interact with the immune system, and with human health in general. Interaction with the immune system yields a modified reaction to internal or external threats (cancer, but also auto-immune reactions or pathogens).
This interaction is bidirectional. In many cases, a negative effect is compensated by a positive effect. For example a cancer promotion effect is compensated by a protective effect with respect to auto-immune diseases, and vice versa.
The impact of one exposure can be offset by another: for example the impact of GSM exposure (2G) on Creutzfeldt-Jakob’s disease was offset by UMTS (3G).
This interaction is often transient. For example a cancer promotion effect following onset of an emitter disappears after some delay.
This interaction is part of a historical context more than 120 years old. It modified the immune system of our parents and grandparents (for example it affected their reaction to Poliomyelitis). Brutal suppression of all emissions, were it doable, would not have a solely positive effect on human health.
This interaction is not always in line with preconceptions: for example, on average on the long term the GSM (2G) technology yielded a strong anti-cancer effect.
This interaction is not always proportional to exposure power: The health effects of TV emitters or telephony base stations (at low power) differ from those of using a mobile phone (at high power) but are just as real. Effects on Poliomyelitis often took place hundreds of kilometers from the emitter, at very low exposure power.
Exposure to radiofrequencies displaced equilibriums of our immune system. The impact of such displacement on specific diseases may occasionally be understood quite reliably, but the overall balance is uneasy to characterize, due to compensation between positive and negative effects.
To take into account the interaction of radiofrequencies with the immune system is not to admit the toxicity of a chemical. Rather, it is a move towards a responsible management. It is an accelerator of development for optical fiber networks which will replace the now obsolete TV broadcasting, and for Li-Fi which when properly implemented is an advantageous alternative to radiofrequency communication. It is not a reaction to a short-term issue: rather, it is the recognition of an historical fact which affected successive human generations. On this basis science will progress, novel therapies will emerge largely using telecom-derived technologies, and human lifetime will increase. To take into account the interaction of radiofrequencies with the immune system is not being overwhelmend by an «all-toxic» concept of radiofrequencies: rather, it means adopting a realistic and nuanced position. It is not halting progress, but accelerating progress in the field of medicine and making telecoms enter a process of sustainable development, including constraints which other industries – such as the car industry or the nuclear power industry – are used to and which can also be sources of development and progress.
