Citizens for Safe Technology
Empowering the public to protect children
and nature from unsafe wireless technologies.
Cell Phone Action Kit
This Cell Phone "Action Kit" offers an essential collection of pro-active ways to become informed about mobile phone technology in our society. Strategies for safer use are needed -- changes in thinking and behaviour we all need to acknowledge and act upon if we are to lessen current and future impacts of cell phone use.

for concluding that radiation from cellular and cordless phones is a probable human carcinogen
From the Abstract in the journal Pathophysiology:
"Many nations, phone manufacturers, and expert groups, advise prevention in light of these concerns by taking the simple precaution of 'distance' to minimize exposures to the brain and body. We note than brain cancer is the proverbial 'tip of the iceberg'; the rest of the body is also showing effects other than cancers."
The full text of the article mentions the view about changing classification of RF-EMF (electromagetic radiation from wireless devices) to a "probable human carcinogen".

Cell Phone Use May Increase Their Risk of ADHD
Excerpts in an April 2, 2013 Press Release from Joel M. Moskowitz, Ph.D., School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley:
A new study finds that children who use cell phones who are exposed to lead are at greater risk of developing Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder than lead-exposed children who do not use cell phones much or at all.
"... preventing the use of mobile phones in children may be one measure to keep children from developing ADHD symptoms ..."

"Cell phone radiation is definitely being talked about more and more, but it's not as if there is widespread awareness on the issue. And even if there is some awareness, there is little to no appreciation of the magnitude of the dangers.
"So what about Bluetooth and more importantly Bluetooth radiation? Now these really are unchartered waters. Most people when they go out looking for a Bluetooth headset have no concept of the radiation issue . . .

The Cell Phone Problem: Cell Phone Health Effects Issued - Environment and Human Health Inc.
A major new report was published today by Environment and Human Health, Inc. regarding cell phone technology, exposure, and health effects.
This comprehensive report reviews the science on health risks due to cell phone technology and issues policy recommendations in addition to precautionary health recommendations for individuals. The review captures what we know, as well as what we don't know, regarding the health effects of cell phone radiation. The report provides a strong rationale for . . .
(1) adoption of precautionary legislation at the Federal, state and local levels;
(2) the need for public information campaigns to promote safer cell phone use, and
(3) independently-funded scientific research to develop safer cell phone technology.
A documentary on cell phones and the potential negative health effects ("Kickstarter" includes full length interviews)
"I'm Kevin Kunze the director and editor of Reconnect, a documentary on the potential negative health effects from cell phone radiation, the proposed policies regarding safer use, and the mainstream media's portrayal of the issue.
"I've been working on this film for nearly two years interviewing doctors, politicians, cancer patients, and representatives from the cell phone industry. Although we're nearly finished with the film there is still a lot that needs to be done, including: filming additional b-roll, motion graphics, composing an original score, color correction, sound mixing, licensing footage, submitting to film festivals, and creating an interactive website. Take a minute to watch our trailer and see how far we've come.

"Although, we've had several offers from different companies that want to buy our footage, they've always come with unusual exceptions such as we want to make this film but not about cancer. In order to maintain the documentary's integrity and independent funding, we're asking for your help.
"In return, we're doing something no other documentary has done before. We're giving you complete access to all of our unedited interviews filmed for the movie. These interviews include the co-founder of Apple, experts from the World Health Organization, National Cancer Institute, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Environmental Working Group, and much more. Each day of our Kickstarter campaign we'll upload a new full length video so check back to follow our progress . . .
"But this film can't just talk about the urgency of the problem, it needs to move people and inspire them to take action. Globally, there are 6 billion cell phones in use right now - yet there has been very little research about the long-term health effects of this technology on our brains and bodies. But the independent research that has been done tell us we need to be more precautious about cell phone radiation.
"Our goal is to capture the public's attention while delivering a powerful message about what the science is showing us and what we can do to use our cell phones safer. Although our ambitions and ideas have grown working on this documentary, we need your help in order to complete this film. We're trying to raise $25,000. This is the minimum amount of money for us be able to complete the film.
Many in the film industry have suggested that we set a high goal such as $50,000 or $100,000 in order to make the film as professionally executed as possible. While we hope to raise more than our goal, we realize that unless we raise the full amount we won't get a penny . . .

Stop Smart Meters Australia
"Are you hypersensitive to electromagnetic radiation from sources such as smart meters and mobile phones?
"Has your health been affected following the installation of smart meters?
"The prospect of a state-wide wireless smart meter grid, casting an additional blanket of electromagnetic pollution over much of Victoria, is a daunting prospect for those people already suffering from electro-hypersensitivity (EHS). Unfortunately the number of Victorians displaying symptoms related to EHS seems to have increased dramatically since the commencement of the smart meter rollout in Victorian homes and small businesses.
"While authorities are in a state of denial (or choose to heartlessly ignore the suffering of such people in the name of profit and 'progress'), Stop Smart Meters Australia has decided to establish a Health Register to demonstrate to skeptics and deniers that the number of people in Victoria experiencing debilitating electromagnetic field (EMF) related health problems and illnesses is not rare and goes far beyond a 'handful' of people.
"If you are one of these people, and would like to be on our register, please email us at email@example.com and provide us with your name, phone and email contact, as well as the suburb/town in which you live.
ALL YOUR DETAILS WILL BE KEPT COMPLETELY CONFIDENTIAL AND UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL YOUR DETAILS BE SHARED WITH A THIRD PARTY WITHOUT YOUR EXPLICIT CONSENT.
"This register will also enable Stop Smart Meters Australia to contact you if we feel there is an important reason to do so in order to reach our goal to halt the forced installation of smart meters in Victorian homes and small businesses, and restore human rights to Victorians . . .
AAEM Recommendations Regarding Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Exposure
These recommendations by AAEM, just released on 7/14/12, will take the world by storm. AAEM recommends that patients with a broad range of medical conditions avoid sources of EMF and RF radiation, especially smart meters on patients' homes and on neighbors' homes, nearby.
"These AAEM recommendations may be useful for accommodation requests.
"Print the recommendations below and take to your doctor, immediately! If you have one of these medical conditions, your physician may wish to issue a request for accommodation letter on your behalf, which you may send to the utility to request to have smart meters removed from your home and the homes of your neighbors, without fees. If the utility refuses, you may then consider filing a discrimination complaint with the federal gov't or you may consider seeking a disability rights attorney to discuss filing a potential discrimination lawsuit.
"Learn more at How to File an Accommodation Letter / Discrimination Complaint Associated with RF Radiation from Smart Meters. Disability law clinics are available for free consultations in some areas.

There are many, many informational materials available online on the issue of EMF and RF, and it is almost impossible to keep up with the news. Therefore, this collection is a work in progress. With this understanding, feel free to share these in whole or in part:
