Consumer Reports issues cell phone safety recommendations

Consumer Reports (CR) published an article today entitled, "Does Cell-Phone Radiation Cause Cancer?"

In the article, CR advises cell phone users take safety precautions, government strengthen cell phone radiation regulations, and manufacturers prominently display "steps that cell-phone users can take to reduce exposure to cell-phone radiation."

CR discusses the positions of the International EMF Scientist Appeal, the Berkeley cell phone ordinance, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the FDA and the FCC on cell phone cancer risks.

After a review of the animal and human studies, CR has issued precautionary health warnings about cell phone use and makes several policy recommendations to the Federal Communications Commission and to cell phone manufacturers:

• "The Federal Communications Commission's cell-phone radiation test is based on the devices' possible effect on large adults, though research suggests that children's thinner skulls mean they may absorb more radiation.

• Consumer Reports agrees with concerns raised by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Government Accountability Office about the tests, and thinks that new tests should be developed that take into account the potential vulnerability of children.

• We think that cell-phone manufacturers should prominently display advice on steps that cell-phone users can take to reduce exposure to cell-phone radiation."

A summary of the article is available on my Electromagnetic Radiation web site along with summaries of CR's past coverage about the health risks from cell phone use at

First US Public School District Limits Wi-Fi Radiation Exposure to Students and Staff

Ashland, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/28/2015 -- Based on its own review of the matter, the Ashland Public School District is reducing wireless radiation exposures to children by instituting district wide "best practices for mobile devices". Spurred by parent Cecelia Doucette's concerns about the lack of safety data on Wi-Fi and children, the district investigated the issue and developed a policy to substantially reduce wireless exposures to students and staff. Doucette not only brought the issue to the district's attention, but then also worked with state legislatures who introduced two bills concerning electromagnetic radiation this session. The Environmental Health Trust submitted written testimony on MA Senate Bill 1222 after expert scientists presented information on wireless health risks at a briefing at the Massachusetts State House in June 2015.
Brain on Fire
EHS in Australia

The implications of non-linear biological oscillations on human electrophysiology for electrohypersensitivity (EHS) and multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS)
Electrohypersensitivity can be caused by successive assaults on human bioelectrochemical dynamics from exogenous electromagnetic fields (EMF) and RFR or a single acute exposure. Once sensitized, further exposures are widely reported to cause reactivity to lower and lower intensities of EMF/RFR, at which point thousand-fold lower levels can cause adverse health impacts to the electrosensitive person

Electromagnetic hypersensitivity - an increasing challenge to the medical profession.

It seems necessary to give an International Classification of Diseases to EHS to get it accepted as EMF-related health problems. The increasing exposure to RF-EMF in schools is of great concern and needs better attention. Longer-term health effects are unknown. Parents, teachers, and school boards have the responsibility to protect children from unnecessary exposure.

A must read for everyone with children in schools & everyone responsible for children in schools.

Is the Professor a Clown?
Perhaps Prof emeritus Shapiro should argue the science with 190 scientists worldwide that have come together to appeal the World Health Organization for stricter RF-radiation guidelines.
Many Smart Meter Victims


Petition - Utility companies around the country are fast moving forward with smart meter installations despite mounting evidence and national court actions related to adverse health effects, rate increases, privacy violations, hacking, and fires.
"It seemed somewhat suspicious that DTE has been trying to rush through the meter changes, and they wouldn't show up to talk to the public," she said in a text message after the forum.
Calls to ban wifi in schools based on cancer risk

To replace existing wireless networks whenever possible with networks that emit less radiation at schools, preschools, hospitals, nursing homes, and other public facilities.
The school Board measured radiation from WiFi and other devices and discovered microwaves strong enough to cause reproductive damage.

Cell Phone Technology Disrupts Brain Activity

RT - September 15, 2015 - A new study is claiming that cellphone usage disrupts electrical activity in the brain.

The Israeli Ministry of Health (MoH) recommendations are published in the .... health risks and policy changes needed to reduce those risks.

Expert Panel Discussion on Children and Wireless For Parents – June 10, 2015

There are eight videos in total.  They are not long, but they provide very important information.
'It was a horrible time and it slowly dawned on me that I had probably caused my own cancer by keeping my phone in my bra,' she said.
Simply stated, a worldwide health crisis is emerging and is becoming a hallmark of the 21st Century.  The international biomedical research community is trying to warn us; but, as a society, we are not yet listening.  I hope that this message will help to change that.
Or will it be much more dangerous and the object of hackers?
