ARPANSA Are Unfit To Protect Us

Right now the 5G rollout is seriously underway in Australia.

ARPANSA Exposure Limits

ARPANSA which is the Australian Government, Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency who set the safety standard limits for exposure to radio frequency (the technology 5G use) say that the operation frequencies of the 5G network are included within the limits set by the ARPANSA safety standard.

The ARPANSA safety limits are set at 1000 µW (microwatts) per cm2, up to 300GHz. This was set in 2002 against a senate committee recommendation of 200 µW/cm2 in 2001.

Despite the fact that many other countries such as China, Russia, Bulgaria, Canada and Poland set the limit at 10 µW/cm2, Switzerland sets their safety standard even lower at 9.5 µW/cm2 and in sensitive areas at 4.25 and Austria set the safety limit even lower at .0001 µW/cm2.

When asked this on Triple J Hack, ARPANSA mouthpiece stated that the rest of the world limits are not founded in science.

He did not provide any evidence to back this claim.

In another article on the ARPANSA website Dr Karipidis admits that the higher frequencies used in 5G technology will penetrate human tissue and acknowledges that there are gaps in this knowledge that require further research, ‘ARPANSA therefore has made recommendations for areas where further studies are needed. The recommendations include research for frequencies above 6 GHz and for emerging technologies that use them like 5G.’ But they go on to say that despite gaps in the knowledge, no health effects are expected from radio frequency exposures below the limits set in the ARPANSA standard.

Industry Corruption is Rife

ARPANSA claim that they are an independent organisation. They aren’t. They receive funding from industry bodies.

The bottom line is that safety guidelines from bodies such as ARPANSA are clearly designed to protect industry, not health, as the profits from the 5G rollout are immense.

ARPANSA say that the only dangers in relation to 5G are heating the skin a very small amount and that this is not a concern.

Current safety guidelines are based on the obsolete hypothesis that heating is the only harmful effect of EMFs. As Markov and Grigoriev have stated, “Today standards do not consider the real pollution of the environment with nonionizing radiation”. Hundreds of scientists have proven that many different kinds of acute and chronic illnesses and injuries are caused without heating (“non-thermal effect”) from radiation levels far below international guidelines. Biological effects occur even at near-zero power levels.

Despite widespread denial, the evidence that radio frequency (RF) radiation is harmful to life is already overwhelming. The accumulated clinical evidence of sick and injured human beings, experimental evidence of damage to DNA, cells and organ systems in a wide variety of plants and animals, and epidemiological evidence that the major diseases of modern civilization—cancer, heart disease and diabetes—are in large part caused by electromagnetic pollution, forms a literature base of well over 10,000 peer-reviewed studies.

Information from


Regulators are deliberately excluding the scientific evidence of harm.

Stakeholders are the ones funding the research and saying 5G is safe.

Science cannot be trusted when the ones set to make a profit are the ones funding the studies.

Did you know there has been a senate inquiry here in Australia?

This was part of the findings of that senate inquiry

“It was contended that the telecommunications industry will try to influence research into electromagnetic emissions to show that there are no ill effects from its technology: If you are a researcher doing research that is being funded by industry, if you are coming up with results that are not what the company wants to hear, you will not get further funding. But if you give results that look good you tend to get further funding. So there is very much a bias to slant your research towards the person who is providing the funding. Some submissions have claimed that industry cover-ups and interference in the publication of research results, and selection bias in the choice of studies to be funded, are reasons for the failure to replicate many studies that have shown a relationship between EMR and biological and health effects.”

This is just SOME of the damning evidence within this senate inquiry.

All we are asking for is truly INDEPENDENT, totally impartial studies testing for biological safety BEFORE rolling out 5G.

We do not want to be experimented on.

Professor Martin Pall destroys ARPANSA

The following was published on the ORSAA website

Professor Emeritus Martin Pall has devoted his working lifetime to understanding the biochemistry behind many diseases that are not well understood by medicine but have a common aetiology, being chronic inflammatory conditions as a result of cells of the body being unable to deal with oxidative stress.

His feedback to a letter from ARPANSA sent to a member of the public in response to concerns around 5G safety is very technical in many places but is also very critical of ARPANSA’s lack of understanding of the science underlying the bio-effects of RF-EMF radiation and its relationship with many adverse health effects.

His conclusions is as follows:


  • With 100% consistency, ARPANSA avoids all of the strongest available science in this area.
  • With 100% consistency, ARPANSA has produced a stunningly biased document, whose positions are repeatedly and consistently contradicted by the strongest science and by large numbers of independent scientists.
  • With 100% consistency, ARPANSA has failed to protect the health and safety of the people of Australia.
  • With 100% consistency, ARPANSA has protected the economic interests of the telecommunications industry.
ARPANSA has ignored a large evidence base that challenges their position.  The scientific evidence we have collated, presented and made publicly available demonstrates that there are biological/health effects occurring at exposures well below the ARPANSA standard.  Therefore, ARPANSA’s claim that there is “no substantiated evidence that RF exposure at levels below the limits of the ARPANSA Standard causes harm to humans” is misleading.  A risk management approach should be adopted urgently for RF-EMR with ALARA as the mainstay of this plan. Wireless technology is not risk-free as implied by ARPANSA’s claim of “no established evidence of harm”. Australians need to be informed of the risks so that they can make informed decisions when it comes to the use of wireless technology, particularly with regards to more vulnerable groups such as children.

More on the correspondence between ARPANSA and Martin Pall below, originally published here

The Minister for Health (The Hon Greg Hunt MP) and the Minister for Environment (The Hon Melissa Price MP) referred a letter from a member of Stop 5G Perth and Australia wide to the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) for a response.  The letter sought information about the role of ARPANSA and the health impacts of millimetre wave (5G) technology.

ARPANSA replied in its usual vein, downplaying any possible cause for alarm.

Martin Pall PhD, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences, Washington State University, was asked by Stop 5G Perth and Australia wide to respond to ARPANSA’s (unsigned) letter.

Professor Martin Pall’s 28-page forensic analysis of ARPANSA’s letter, which includes reference to his own document on the risks of 5G and other EMF, is a chilling indictment of the competence, professionalism and independence of ARPANSA.  ARPANSA is the organisation that supposedly monitors and identifies radiation risks to Australians!

Pall notes that ARPANSA provided “not one iota of evidence that its exposure standard is based on scientific research or that it protects us from any, let alone all harmful effects nor that it protects people of all ages and health status against all known adverse effects of RF (the word they are using for microwave frequency) exposures”.  Professor Pall pointed out that by ignoring 158 bodies of evidence ARPANSA completely fails in its responsibility to protect the health of Australians.  He goes on to say that, in general, “ARPANSA makes grandiose claims that are both undocumented and found to be false or, at best highly questionable when one examines the scientific literature”.

Professor Pall raised a number of questions for ARPANSA in his response.  He asked ARPANSA to provide answers to these questions within three weeks of receiving his letter.

The public of Australia awaits ARPANSA’s response…….

ARPANSA are corrupt, outdated, in bed with industry, asleep at the wheel and are COMPLETELY unfit to protect us.
