It Ain't Rocket Science

I don't have to be a rocket scientist to comprehend that 1800 scientific studies is a lot more than 0 and a lot more than "not enough." And I don't have to be a rocket scientist to realize when experts who used to say it's urgent to reduce to a maximum limit of 1000 are now saying we better aim for something more like 3 or 6 that, "Houston, we have a problem."

An amazing compilation of science and conclusions from 29 of the world's top electromagnetic radiation scientists: a new report by the BioInitiative Working Group 2012. At its website , you'll find many options for reading the Report or summaries and sections of it. I started by reading the Conclusions section (the clickable alongside my post here). The Report says that evidence for risks to health has substantially increased since 2007 from electromagnetic fields and wireless technologies (radiofrequency radiation). The Report reviews over 1800 new scientific studies. [Note: 1800 is not a typo, so when anyone claims there are no scientific studies ... and that number is only mentioning the "new" ones.]

The Report is not at all only about brain cancer, and not at all only about cell phones. There are sections about Autism, Fertility, Fetal Exposure, Alzheimer's Disease and other neurological effects, plus many other relevant topics. Any and all powered devices or networks that communicate with something else without the use of wires are using floods of electrically-generated unnatural electromagnetic radiation waves to carry and distribute digital signals and information throughout all your indoor and outdoor airspaces (whether or not you or anyone else is actively using a device or network). These communications don't happen by magic ... they happen because in the 21st century your air is densely filled with this unnatural radiation ... always ... everywhere.

Please notice that the Report often mentions cordless phones in the same breath as cell phones.

“There is a consistent pattern of increased risk for glioma (a malignant brain tumor) and acoustic neuroma with use of mobile and cordless phones” says Lennart Hardell, MD at Orebro University, Sweden. “Epidemiological evidence shows that radiofrequency should be classified as a human carcinogen. The existing FCC/IEEE and ICNIRP public safety limits and reference levels are not adequate to protect public health.”

If you referred to The BioInitiative Report 2007 for their recommendation for maximum exposure limit of 1000 microwatts per meter-squared, it's my understanding that the revised recommendation in the 2012 Report is 3 to 6 microwatts per meter-squared. [Again, there's no typo: it was 1000, and now it's 3 to 6.] There is also a paragraph: "Safety standards for sensitive populations will more likely need to be set at lower levels than for healthy adult populations. Sensitive populations include the developing fetus, the infant, children, the elderly, those with pre-existing chronic diseases, and those with developed electrical sensitivity (EHS)."
