Danger from Electromagnetic Fields - The Lancet

J.B. Sibbison - U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 1990

"It was reported in 1990 that the draft EPA document was changed to remove the initial recommendation to classify lower frequency EMF as a "probable" human carcinogen and RF as a "possible" human carcinogen. Part of the rationale at the EPA for dealing with industrial pollutants and cancer links was that "We don't want to scare the public."

"The article in The Lancet was written by someone claiming to be the "public relations man" at the EPA."

Kit Weaver

"Government officials in Washington tend to play down or even suppress news linking industrial pollutants to cancer. When I was a public relations man at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), their rationale, as explained to me, was always the same: "We don't want to scare the public". In consequence, the average citizen must usually rely for such information on leaks to the press or the enterprise of investigative reporters. Paul Brodeur of the New Yorker magazine, for one, has been calling to public attention the association between cancer and electromagnetic fields from power lines. . .

Radiofrequency/Microwave Radiation Biological Effects and Safety Standards: A Review

STILL HOT (1988) - U.S. Air Force Declassified Information

Scott M. Bolen, Rome Laboratory, Air Force Material Command, Griffis Air Force Base, New York


"The study of human exposure to radiofrequency/microwave radiation has been the subject of widespread investigation and analysis. It is known that electromagnetic radiation has a biological effect on human tissue. An attempt has been made by researchers to quantify the effects of radiation on the human body and to set guidelines for safe exposure levels. A review of the pertinent findings is present along with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) recommended safety standard (C95.1-1982) and the United States Air Force permissible exposure limit for RF/MW radiation (AFOSH Standard 161-9, 12 February 1987).

"An overview of research that was conducted in the Soviet union and Eastern Europe is also included in this report. . . .

Electrosmog in the Environment (Switzerland)

Swiss Agency for the Environment, Forests and Landscape (SAEFL) June 2005

"Electricity supply systems, electrical appliances and a wide range of transmitters for various wireless applications generate non-ionising radiation (commonly referred to as "electrosmog")  that can be harmful to our health, depending on its intensity. With its Ordinance relating to Protection from Non-Ionising Radiation, the Federal Council introduced a legal instrument to protect the population against the harmful effects of electrosmog. 

"This publication describes the main sources of electrosmog, assesses the associated risks, identifies existing gaps in research and suggests ways in which we can reduce our own level of exposure."

26+ years later and here we are, still questioning whether or not this very technology even exists! Just IMAGINE how far more advanced things are today . . .

"Released in 2000, Public Exposure is the first - and still definitive - independently produced investigative report on this key issue, the human health dangers of Radio Frequency Radiation (RFR) from cell phones & cell towers... and what we can do to protect ourselves.

"Broadcast on LinkTV and in constant use by community groups and concerned citizens around the world, with thousands of DVD copies sold, we now make the authorized one-hour version of Public Exposure available on-line for the first time. DVD copies are available for purchase here:  http://www.eon3.net/emr_protection/docs/public_exposure.html

The Effect of Microwaves on the Central Nervous System "STILL HOT"

1965- Translated from the German for Research and Scientific Laboratory Ford Motor Company W. Bergman

The author wishes to thank the Management of the Research and Scientific Laboratory of Ford Motor Company for undertaking translation and printing of this paper.

Abstract (1965)

The autonomic nervous system is affected by the microwaves of the centimetre wavelength band. These waved affect circulation, respiration, temperature control, water balance, albumin and sugar concentration in the cerebro-spinal fluid, hydrogen ion concentration, EEG, GSR, sleep, conscious awareness, etc. Depending on the applied dosage, these waves stimulate the sympathetic or parasympathetic system. Very small dosages produce analgesic effects; however very large dosages are fatal. An undamped or modulated frequency is more effective than damped waves. The biological effects of these waves results from the resonance absorption in the ganglia. There are indications that only higher harmonics, and not the fundamental frequency, produce biological effects. The shielding of the test subject by metal screens increases these effects; however, magnetic fields remove them. Higher harmonics producing these biological effects have physical properties which are similar to those of the bio-electrical energy generated by the human body. The mechanism of hypothesis is explained by the transmission of this energy.

Electromagnetic Fields from Mobile Phones: Health Effect on Children and Teenagers


This Resolution was approved by members of the Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (RNCNIRP) at its Committee session on 3 March 2011. The Resolution evolved from scientific statements adopted by RNCNIRP in 2001, 2004, 2007, 2008 and 2009, taking into account contemporary views and actual scientific data. The Resolution represents a viewpoint of the professional scientific community and is meant for public dissemination, for the consumers of the mobile telecommunications services, as well as for the legislative and executive authorities who develop and implement health protection, environmental, communication, scientific and safety policies.
