The (US) National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) both describe electro magnetic fields (EMFs) as hazardous substances. Information on their web sites about the danger, is very weak, but at least they admit there is a problem. The information from NIEHS only covers low frequency EMFs from wiring and electrical devices.
Where these organizations are really letting the public down is their failure to warn workers and citizens about the great dangers of electro magnetic radiation (EMR) from antennas and wireless devices. Antennas and wireless devices are widely used in the workplace and there is good scientific evidence to believe that they will harm a large amount of the population over a length of time. Why are these important health and safety organizations ignoring clear and convincing evidence that show EMR is causing terrible harm to health?
