Swiss anti-5G groups have announced their intention to launch a popular initiative to limit radiation from mobile communications technology.
The Federal Chancellery has approved the launch of an initiative titled “For a health conscious and energy-efficient mobile communications”, according to the Federal Gazette published on Tuesday. The text of the initiative requests that the limit values set by the Ordinance on Protection against Non-Ionizing Radiation should not be increased.
The text wants a clear separation between indoor and outdoor use of mobile telephone and internet services. This means the power of the transmitters should be lowered so that electromagnetic radiation does not enter homes. Indoors, data would be transmitted by fiber-optic or coaxial cables and not by electromagnetic waves.
