The Wireless Elephant in the Room

An overview of the rapidly emerging public health issue from cell phones, wireless devices and wireless infrastructure— and how the growth in these technologies is a little understood driver of poor health outcomes and costs. “The Wireless Elephant in the Room” was written by Camilla Rees, MBA, Senior Policy Advisor, National Institute for Science, Law […]

Phone Booths Replaced by New WiFi Kiosks in NYC Are Dangerous Radiating Hotspots

“Free super fast Wi-Fi. And that’s just the beginning.” The beginning of what, one may ask? You’ve probably seen them popping up all over New York City’s sidewalks – tall, sleek, modern kiosks where old-school phone booths used to exist. But this is no mere parking meter upgrade. This is LinkNYC – a new $200 million […]

Risks of School WiFi Exposure

This dosimetry chart characterizes the wireless radiation exposure to children in a middle school. Key points to understand about WiFi in schools from this example are: WiFi exposure varied from room to room and also within class periods. WiFi should not be thought of as a benign, static background energy as instead it is a […]

World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer Classifies Cell Phone & WiFi Radiation as A Possible Carcinogen

The WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified radiofrequency (RF) from cell phones and wireless technologies as a Group 2B ‘Possible Human Carcinogen’ in 2011. This was an important step for a highly regarded international scientific body to recognize the potential risks to human health posed by wireless technologies. Countries around the globe […]

Real Estate Survey: Neighborhood Antennas—Do They Impact Buyers Interest?

Given the growing proliferation of electromagnetic fields, in our homes, offices, schools and public places, as well as media coverage on the topic and mushrooming activism, many people, and especially real estate brokers, investors and lawyers, want to keep an eye on the public’s level of awareness about the risks. They are concerned for what […]

Protecting The Children

For Parents to Know 1. We are fundamentally electromagnetic. 2. Man-made frequencies from wireless devices and cell phones are biologically disruptive Radiofrequency Radiation (RF). 3. FCC exposure guidelines ignore a large body of science showing risk from this radiation and the guidelines are not protective as they only protect from one form of risk—the heating […]

33 Recommendations for the Federal Communications Commission

The National Institute for Science, Law and Public Policy (“NISLAPP”) has reviewed steps being taken in over two-dozen countries today to encourage and empower citizens to live with and use wireless technologies more safety. Based on this review, we present here 33 steps the FCC might consider taking, or encourage manufacturers to take, in order […]

U.S. $25mm Study Indicates Tumor Risk from Cell Phone Radiation, Reinforcing Epidemiology Studies

National Toxicology Program (NTP) Rodent Research Study In 1999, a Rodent Research Study on Radio-Frequency Radiation was recommended to the National Toxicology Program by the FDA. It was begun in the National Toxicology Program of the NIH, an interagency program housed in the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. RF exposures to rats began in […]

REPORT: Health Implications of Long-term Exposure to Electrosmog, K. Hecht

Health Implications of Long-Term Exposure to Electrosmog by Prof. Dr. med. Karl Hecht (English edition August 2016) is an excellent overview of the science showing risks from wireless technologies issued by the Competence Initiative for the Protection of Humanity, the Environment and Democracy in Germany. It is the sixth in a series of extremely thoughtful […]

All interested parties are encouraged to sign the Care2 EMF Petition to Congress. The Petition is calling on Congress to mandate the FCC revise its exposure guidelines to be in line with the biological science showing risk at much lower levels than present exposures; to return rights to state and local governments to limit antennas […]
