Invisible risks of radio frequency radiation, and the best strategies for protection

Awareness of RF radiation risk finds itself in a similar place to concussion awareness in the NFL. Years ago, when there was a generalized sense that getting a concussion in football was "not good," it was just considered part of the game and only minimal efforts were taken to reduce concussion injuries. Now, with aging players suffering very debilitating effects from repeated, undiagnosed concussions and the medical community endorsing the fact that concussions have the potential to be very damaging to player health, both the league and owners have come together to adopt new standards to mitigate the risk.

Antennas: Out of Sight, Out of Mind

The city of Phoenix, Ariz. has pretty specific ideas about what it wants cellular antennas in residential areas to look like: anatomically correct palm trees of a maximum 65-feet with 55 fronds, a leaf cluster and a maximum trunk diameter of 26 inches.

Wireless Industry Kills Cell Phone Radiation Bill

After landslide votes in both the house (83-56 in favor) and senate (21-14 in favor) of LD 1013, The Wireless Information Act's historic passage was reversed, thanks to fast, furious and aggressive lobbying by the wireless industry, who filled the halls of the State House yesterday to ensure the bills failure to be enacted, which required a final vote in the House. In a 77 - 60 vote, the bill was reversed that morning.

The Invisible Threat: Radiofrequency Radiation Risk

Decades of scientific research dating back to 1960 has determined that excessive exposure to radiofrequency radiation is hazardous to human health. In response, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the world's largest professional association for the advancement of technology, developed the first standard for human exposure limits to radiofrequency radiation in 1966.

COMMENTS OF IBEW ON FCC’s Notice of Proposed Rule Making regarding radiofrequency exposures

The FCC licensee should be responsible for ensuring our members are aware of their exposure so they can fully exercise control over their exposure. The FCC licensee should also be responsible for ensuring our member knows the unique physical boundaries at every work location so as not to exceed the referenced RF exposure limits.

Americans Beware: Nationwide Violations of FCC Radiation Limits at Wireless Antenna Sites

The EMRadiation Policy Institute (EMRPI) releases Videos revealing the FCC's failure to protect Americans from wireless radiofrequency (RF) radiation. US workers and families are at risk of overexposure to RF at hazardous levels. Hundreds of wireless industry-operated antenna sites from Maine to California have been tested by EMRPI and found to be in gross violation -- up to and in excess of 600% -- of the FCC's public exposure limits. These sites include rooftops as well as locations where the general public, including children, can gain access, and where workers are on the job.

RF/microwave exposure - more evidence that it is a universal bio-hazard

Scientific evidence is increasingly showing that RF/microwave exposure is a bio-hazard that can affect a wide range of health outcomes in humans, animals and plants

A wireless industry publication alleged that Mr. Wheeler suppressed and biased the research from the nation's largest mobile phone health research project.

The strategies allegedly used by the CTIA were similar to those employed by the Tobacco Industry for many decades to downplay the dangers of cigarette smoking. After six years of litigation by the Department of Justice, a Federal court finally found the Tobacco Industry guilty of fraud and racketeering in 2006.How long will it take before the curtain is pulled back on the Wireless Industry's longstanding strategy to co-opt the scientific community, and suppress and bias the research on the health effects of cell phone and wireless radiation?

Lost Research Opportunities - Industry Treads Water; Conflicts Abound

Five years ago we reported on what we thought was an important clue in the search for understanding the well-documented association between childhood leukemia and EMF exposure. A team based in Shanghai presented evidence that children carrying a genetic variation linked to DNA repair were four times more likely to develop leukemia than those without that genetic marker. We called the finding a "major breakthrough" and predicted, "It simply cannot be ignored."

Potential Health Risks of Distributed Antenna Systems in Encinitas Neighborhoods

The city of Encinitas is considering amending a contract allowing Crown Castle International to add additional cell transmitters to light poles around the city, including residential neighborhoods. The problem in a nutshell is the technology has exploded screaming light years ahead of the law. The Telecom law was written in 1996 and has never been amended. The way the law is written forbids any local government from discriminating the location of these transmission devices based on public health or environmental concerns.
