A new group, Physicians for Safe Technology, has formed to educate on the health issues associated with digital and wireless technologies. Their vision is a world where technology serves our needs without undermining our physical, psychsocial or environmental health. The PST website at https://mdsafetech.wordpress.com/ provides an excellent additional resource on EMF issues.
EMF Research is an independent research resource into electromagnetic fields (EMF) for public education purposes, focused primarily on Radiofrequency EMF (RF-EMF) and Extremely-Low Frequency (ELF-EMF) fields. This is an excellent resource/research website with links to EMF Portal. Use arrow tabs to navigate. The link below takes you to the EMF Research page of wildlife studies
In ART & WILDERNESS are the preservation of EARTH. In this short smART meter animated film, is ART, telling it like it really is. Just over 4 minutes. Enjoy, I suppose. Pass it on, definitely. Director’s Notes: Our cartoon exposing the truth about Smart Meters is now done and YOU are among the first to
In 2016 the European Academy of Environmental Medicine (EUROPAEM) published their Guidelines for the Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment of EMF-Related Health Problems and Illnesses. From the abstract: It seems necessary now to take “new exposures” like electromagnetic fields (EMF) into account. Physicians are increasingly confronted with health problems from unidentified causes. Studies, empirical observations, and
Irradiated, an excellent resource from Wireless Action, is a comprehensive compilation and analysis of the literature on radiofrequency fields and the negative biological impacts of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (particularly radiofrequency fields) on biological organisms. It is available here as a pdf and also at the Wireless Action website with other good links: https://wirelessaction.wordpress.com/irradiated/
This 2016 slide presentation by Dr. Martin Pall was presented to the FCC and is part of their docket 13-84. It is an excellent yet often technical summary of one likely source of causation for the impacts of low-level EMF exposures on human health.
Steve Weller from Australia has put together probably the most comprehensive slide presentation on electromagnetic hypersensitivity we have seen. Dated 2015, it covers causes, symptoms, mechanisms, history and more. Excellent graphics as well.
Former USFWS research expert Albert Manville has just written an excellent detailed summary of how wildlife is impacted by RFR. The Manville paper is here.
On July 14th the FCC met and gave expected approval to fifth generation (5G) wireless technologies by opening up for development with minimal restrictions, higher frequency bandwidths know as millimeter waves. Millimeter waves (only millimeters between frequency peaks) can cram in a lot of data and energy in a short space but have minimal penetration.
Olga Sheean a former employee of the World Health Organization in Geneva and now a resident of Vancouver, has written a wonderfully articulate and passionate letter to Gregor Robertson, Mayor of that city, about electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) and the dangers of WiFi proliferation. An excerpt follows and the complete letter can be read here. Our
The following comments are from Dr. Joel Moskowitz, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Family and Community Health, School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley and posted on his website at: http://www.saferemr.com/ . The entire report is linked here. Thirty of 540 (5.5%), or one in 18 male rats exposed to cell phone radiation developed cancer. No
The cell phone cancer controversy will never be the same again. Today Microwave News released an exclusive story http://microwavenews.com/news-center/ntp-cancer-results on the upcoming announcement that rats in a National Toxicology Program study exposed to cell phone radiation developed tumors of the brain and heart. This is the same radio frequency radiation the World Health Organization classified
Your smart meter isn’t necessarily safe or healthy: Maine lives are at risk from the noncancer effects of smart meter-induced radiofrequency radiation. Portland Press Herald: Maine Voices: Read this 3/28/16 opinion piece by Ed Friedman
Environmental Health Trust is the only nonprofit in the world today that both carries out high-level critical research on controllable environmental health hazards like microwave radiation and works directly with local communities, teachers, parents and students as well as policy makers to understand and mitigate these hazards through research, education and advocacy. EHT has just
Speaking of research references another great source is the EMF-Portal in Germany: http://www.emf-portal.de/motivation.php?l=e The internet information platform EMF-Portal of the RWTH Aachen University summarizes systematically scientific research data on the effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF). Interested citizens, decision makers and opinion leaders, such as doctors, lawyers and politicians, can find all the information in both
A big problem even from people who believe RFR causes health effects is common use of the phrase ‘no evidence of health risk is not the same as saying they are safe [whether smart meters or cell phones].’ While the phrase on its face is obviously true, in the case and context of RFR exposure
A February 7, 2014 letter from the Department of the Interior (of which US Fish & Wildlife Service is a part) to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (part of the Department of Commerce) notes: The placement and operation of communication towers, including un-guyed, unlit, monopole or lattice-designed structures, impact protected migratory birds in two
On June 22, 2015 the Commonwealth Club of California hosted an Expert Forum on Children & Cell Phones/WiFi. The event was organized in large part by http://electromagnetichealth.org/ and the Environmental Health Trust http://ehtrust.org/ . This was the fifth presentation on RF/EMF the Club has offered and besides effects on children, the June program had presentations
In 2011 India’s Ministry of Environment and Forest released their Report on Possible Impacts of Communication Towers on Wildlife Including Birds and Bees. The Ministry reviewed 919 studies and while their mandate was to report back on birds and bees, the report touches on other wildlife as well. The study is here. The histogram excerpted
This important review covers experimental data on oxidative effects of low-intensity radiofrequency radiation (RFR) in living cells. Analysis of the currently available peer-reviewed scientific literature reveals molecular effects induced by low-intensity RFR in living cells; this includes significant activation of key pathways generating reactive oxygen species (ROS), activation of peroxidation, oxidative damage of DNA and
