Wireless Technologies Cause Harm to Children and Adults, Legislators and Journalists Are Told
Canada Created: 2 Jul 2009
Today The National Institute for Science, Law, and Public Policy (”NISLAPP”) mailed a report on the health hazards of wireless technologies to Governors, Members of Congress, President Obama and his Administration, as well as to thousands of health and environmental journalists.

Legislators and journalists are being urged to learn about the health consequences of microwave radiation exposure from cell phones, neighborhood antennas, wireless networks, wireless routers, DECT portable phones, and the potential health consequences of further chronic exposures from wireless broadband and new wireless utility technologies. The National Institute for Science, Law and Public Policy is encouraging all to become engaged with this important public health issue impacting adults and children, as well as animals and nature.

Co-authored by Dr. Magda Havas, Assoc. Professor of Environmental and Resource Studies at Trent
University in Canada, and Camilla Rees, Founder of www.ElectromagneticHealth.org, “Public Health SOS: The Shadow Side of the Wireless Revolution” reviews the independent science on the health hazards of wireless radiation and offers recommendations to the public on how to live more safely in a wireless world. It answers 110 questions posed by the audience at the Commonwealth Club of California, the nation’s oldest and largest public affairs forum, at an event co-organized by Wide Angle Health, LLC, Citizens for Health and the American Academy of Environmental Medicine.

Globally, public health officials and health advocacy groups are increasingly concerned about
symptoms people are associating with rising levels of indoor and outdoor microwave radiation, known
as ‘electrosmog’, including sometimes debilitating symptoms experienced near cell phone towers
(http://sn.im/kt6pe). In addition, they are troubled by the impact this radiation may be having on
children, who are more vulnerable. Schools increasingly use wireless networks to access the internet,
instead of hard-wired connections, and many schools are being paid to place cell phone towers and
antennas on school property. Several countries, but not the United States, recommend limited cell
phone access for children, including Germany, Russia, India, Belgium, and Finland. Last month France
banned cell phones in primary schools (http://sn.im/ktfa2).

There is concern, as well, about involuntary, chronic radiation exposure in workplaces, and also that
home equity values can drop precipitously if a cell phone tower is erected nearby.
