EMR Legal Archive

Sheryl Ubelacker, The Globe and Mail (Toronto), May 11, 2015 Wireless devices such as smartphones and tablets have certainly made staying in touch and plugging into the digital world easier and more convenient. But the increasingly ubiquitous nature of the technology is also raising concerns about possible adverse health effects from exposure to the electromagnetic radio-frequency waves that these devices emit. Worries about exposure to EM-RF fields were recently raised before the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Health, which heard three days of submissions from international medical experts, advocacy groups and industry players. The all-party committee will now prepare a report on [&hellip

  Most parents would be concerned if their children had significant exposure to lead, chloroform, gasoline fumes, or the pesticide DDT.  The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IRIC), part of the United Nations’ World Health Organization (WHO), classifies these and more than 250 other agents as Class 2B Carcinogens – possibly carcinogenic to humans.  Another entry on that same list is radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF/EMF).  The main sources of RF/EMF are radios, televisions, microwave ovens, cell phones, and Wi-Fi devices. http://www.forbes.com/sites/robertszczerba/2015/01/13/study-suggests-wi-fi-exposure-more-dangerous-to-kids-than-previously-thought/#comment_reply A few days after the article was published, significant changes were made.

UK Organizations associated with the International EMF Alliance Two new papers posted on the Wifi in Schools site.  http://wifiinschools.org.uk 1. We would like the IARC classification of radio frequency electromagnetic fields as a Group 2B possibly carcinogenic to humans to be mentioned in all information about wireless devices passed on to schools, organizations and government departments, as well as in published or communicated information about each technology, e.g. Wi-Fi and smart meters. Including the 2B classification in information about wireless devices allows people to make informed choices. Organisations have legal responsibilities to provide safe environments and to not harm children, [&hellip

In 1994, the US Air Force published a 32-page report titled: “Radiofrequency/Microwave Radiation Biological Effects and Safety Standards: A Review,” authored by Scott M. Bolen. The supervising agency was Rome Laboratory at Griffiss Air Force Base in New York. Read and download the complete 32-page report here: USAF Report 1994 Biological-Effects . To this day, many if not most governmental agencies and scientists in North America and abroad maintain the position that RF and microwave radiation are only damaging to the human body at power densities high enough to cause a heating effect (a so-called “thermal effect”), like a microwave oven. The position, while [&hellip

http://www.utc.wa.gov/consumers/Pages/ComplaintSubmitted.aspx would be our version of the Public Service Commission? I lodged a complaint in no uncertain terms using this language: This is a formal complaint against the installation of smart meters on  my home including water and electric. They are proven to damage health–the World Health Organization calls them a Class 2B Carcinogen in the same class as lead, diesel, chloroform, and HIV. They are a proven surveillance tool http://blog.sfgate.com/energy/2013/06/20/is-your-smart-meter-spying-on-you/ They can be easily hacked and also have caused 1000 house fires. They send personal data to third parties: insurance companies, manufacturers, and corporations. They are proven to save no energy, the [&hellip
