Hypersensitivity to the waves produced by mobile phones becomes a new cause of permanent disability.

 

Spain, September 2011 - This has been ruled by the Labour Court to declare Madrid 24 permanent incapacitation of a college professor who suffered from chronic fatigue and environmental and electromagnetic hypersensitivity. The ruling is unique in this regard and made a precedent for future conditions related to hypersensitivity to these waves. The verdict was issued on 23 May and gave the teacher 100% of his base salary, which amounted to 1640.80 euros.

 

Team Assessment of the Social Security disability (EVI), recognized in clinical diagnosis: chronic fatigue syndrome, coeliac disease, fibromyalgia syndrome and environmental electromagnetic hypersensitivity, yet they dismissed the patient's disability.

 

The Labour Court in Madrid again puts into question the criteria for the granting of this degree by the provincial leadership of the national institute, and recognizes the rights of the applicant stating that presents enormous problems for the performance of their tasks " with appropriate level of professionalism and performance. "

 

Legal Medical Group would like to echo this statement pioneer in the defense of those who are entitled to a permanent disability pension, and upholds the spirit of not giving any circumstances for lost, when there is sufficient medical and legal basis. Legal Medical Group is a pioneer in the defense of those who apply for disability, accident or illness, advising them from a technical point of view, medical and legal since 1978.

The Evidence connecting Mobile Phone EMF Exposure and Male Infertility

by Brian Stein (RRT and EM Man) and Alasdair Philips (Powerwatch), 22 August 2011

Data from around the world indicate that about 35% of women and 45% of men are sub-fertile (about 7% of women and men are effectively infertile) [1,2]. Though most men believe infertility is due to “female issues”, the truth is that male infertility plays a role in about 50% of cases of failing to conceive after one year.

Sperm counts in men worldwide have declined by half over the past 50 years and are continuing to fall, according to a number of studies. A 2011 Finnish study of the sperm counts of 858 young men in three birth-year cohorts from the 1970s to the 1980s concluded: “These simultaneous and rapidly occurring adverse trends suggest that the underlying causes are environmental and, as such, preventable.” The decrease could be due to environmental chemicals affecting early testicular development and/or to the increased EMF exposure from cell phones. Lifestyle factors are likely to be having a significant impact. The more recently a male was born then the lower their sperm count is likely to be when they reach 20 [3]

Cell Phone Use May Reduce Male Fertility

Cell Phone Use May Reduce Male Fertility, Austrian-Canadian Study Suggests

ScienceDaily (May 19, 2011) - Men who have been diagnosed with poor sperm quality and who are trying to have children should limit their cell phone use, a new study suggests. Researchers in Austria and Canada have found that while cell phone use appears to increase the level of testosterone circulating in the body, it may also lead to low sperm quality and a decrease in fertility.

Effects of the exposure to mobile phones on male reproduction: a review of the literature

Abstract
The use of mobile phones is now widespread. A great debate is going on about the possible damage that the radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMR) emitted by mobile phones exerts on different organs and apparatuses. Aim of this article was to review the existing literature exploring the effects of RF- EMR on the male reproductive function in experimental animals and human beings. Studies on the experimental animals have been conducted in rats, mice, and rabbits using a similar design based upon mobile phone radiofrequency exposure for a variable length of time. Altogether the results of these studies show that RF-EMR decreases sperm count and motility, and increases the oxidative stress. In human beings, two different experimental approaches have been followed, one has explored the effects of RF-EMR directly on spermatozoa and the other has evaluated the sperm parameters in men using or not mobile phones. The results show that human spermatozoa exposed to RF-EMR have decreased motility, morphometric abnormalities, and increased oxidative stress, whereas men using mobile phones have decreased sperm concentration, motility (particularly the rapid progressive one), normal morphology, and viability. These abnormalities seem to be directly related with the length of mobile phone use.
