Letter from Associate Professor Ptáček
Letter of support for the ECI Stop(((5G))) EU Citizens' Initiative
Scientists have no interest in hindering progress. Instead, those who have the ability to notice what is happening around them will detect and demonstrate the negative effects of radiation.
All radiation has a magnetic component in addition to the electrical component. When a conductor moves, it induces an electric current. Whether it is a leaf moving in the wind, a bird or a bee. The body's electrolytes make them all conductors.
Under current exposure limits, whether ICNIRP or Czech standards, heating of tissue and the resulting physiological effects are the only things taken into account. I believe that if tissue heating occurs, it is a warning signal rather than an irrelevant signal. Human organs, of which the skin is one, are complex cellular structures which are themselves complex in structure, and are sensitive to the internal balance of the components and elements within them. But apart from humans, the same is true of all life in nature out there - viruses, bacteria, plants and animals. Plants have cells as complex as animals.
So, unless we stop the expansion of communication networks because of tissue heating, which is itself a serious phenomenon, let's postpone it for a few years and ask scientists at our universities to do experiments on how radiation exposure affects bacteria, growth and survival of cells in fungi, algae, mosses and lichens, microorganisms in soil, seeds and plants - monocots (grasses, cereals), dicots (conifers) and dicots (deciduous trees), and all kinds of animals - amphibians, crustaceans, insects, including bees and other pollinators, birds - egg hatching and subsequent development, and other experiments I'd be happy to help select.
My support for the initiative "Stop (((5G))) – Stay connected, but protected" was prompted by the fact that the birds in the park near my home have declined significantly with the increasing number of mobile phone transmitters on rooftops in Brno in recent years. Last year and this year, no ravens have moved in over the winter, whereas in the past hundreds of ravens flew in at dawn. All the maples (Acer platanoides) in the city centre have leaves with atypical red-coloured leaf margins, which they shed earlier.
Given the negative effects that radiation already has today, we should not allow even higher frequencies, without conducting detailed experiments, from the molecular to the organ level. Let us not accept that new communication networks are allowed to be built irreversibly without testing.
