diagnose:funk is the environmental
and consumer organization
for protection against electrosmog
and for environmentally friendly
wireless technology.


Our motto: using technology sensibly

diagnose:funk is a leading environmental and consumer protection organization that campaigns for environmentally friendly wireless technology and protection from electrosmog. Our aim is to raise awareness of the health and environmental dangers of electromagnetic fields from cell phones, smartphones, mobile phone antennas, WLAN, DECT and other sources of electrosmog. Digitalization is changing all areas of life, which is why we also provide information about the psychosocial effects of digital media, especially on children and young people, about the effects of so-called „digital education“ and environmental destruction caused by the energy and resource consumption of digital devices. We want to persuade politicians and users to rethink and promote sustainable solutions for the future.

We want an environmentally friendly and  sustainable technology

With our expertise and research work, we provide you with the knowledge you need to make informed decisions, rethink your habits and practice a more conscious use of wireless technology. We also actively promote more environmentally-friendly alternatives and look for solutions that protect both your health and our environment.

The diagnose:funk team always strives to provide you with the latest findings and to bring about change. We support you as a responsible consumer in your quest for a clean and healthy environment. Be part of our movement and contribute to change. Together we can shape a future where technology and environmental protection go hand-in-hand.

Materials in the store

In our online store you will find all our materials, including brochures, flyers and DVDs on the issue of insects and EMFs. You may order printed materials with a donation of any amount. Some documents are also available to download free of charge.


The EMF:data database provides an overview of research in the field of non-ionizing radiation emitted by mobile phone stations, Smartphones, tablet PCs, WLAN routers, DECT telephones and other applications.


This page provides information about electrohypersensitivity (EHS). It provides suggestions for self-help and gives an overview of the current state of research and treatment. Experts in science, health, consumer protection and EHS share their knowledge and experience here.


This initiative promotes safer personal use of digital media by children and young people and provides support to parents, schools, network experts and institutions.

About diagnose:funk Germany

Diagnose-Funk e.V. is a non-profit organization founded in 2009. Our aim is to support the public in the safe and conscious use of digital media. As a recognized association, we offer comprehensive and scientifically based information to help protect families and employees from electromagnetic fields and radiation. We demand and promote ideas for minimizing radiation, including the complete expansion of fibre optics and light as a wireless transmission technology.

Our focus is particularly on exposure to cell phones and microwave radiation from cordless phones, WLAN, Bluetooth and other sources, which can be detected in almost every household through radio frequency measurements. This affects almost everyone in Germany, especially in urban areas. We give practical tips on how you can reduce your risk of radiation exposure, such as using a wired hands-free kit when using a cell phone, avoiding WLAN networks and switching off radiating devices at night.

More and more people are experiencing the impacts of microwave radiation. Many people complain about health problems and reduced well-being. For this reason, we launched the information platform www.diagnose-ehs.org in 2021. We invite you to visit this page! Under the title „Helping people to help themselves,“ people who are electro-hypersensitive will find customized information and numerous tips. We hope that this information will make your everyday life easier.

Science-based documentation of the study situation

The health risks posed by non-ionizing radiation affect all users. Despite the fact that evidence from studies is now clear, the industry denies them. The telecom industry is worth billions. diagnose:funk researches studies conducted independently of the telecom industry. Our experts warn against trivialization and refer to our study database www.emfdata.org, which contains hundreds of studies, discussed by biologists that demonstrate risks. We publish the specialist journal ElektrosmogReport. In the last two years, EU authorities, including the EU Parliament’s Committee on Technology Assessment (STOA) and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), have confirmed the risks and called for a precautionary policy and risk prevention. The German Bundestag also documented the studies in its report on technology assessment (2023). In our Compass on the study situation, you can find source-based information on the existing research and the fierce controversy surrounding it.

In 2011, the World Health Organization classified mobile phone radiation as possibly carcinogenic. As a precaution, the Federal Office for Radiation Protection recommends the use of cable connections instead of radio for WLAN and Internet connections.
