Wireless Tech Health Hazards
What you don't know can harm you.
Wireless Radiation 101
What You Need To Know
(This document will best be viewed on your computer.)
Digital and wireless technology has changed our lives with many benefits. Unfortunately wireless devices have been allowed to proliferate our world without proper regulation, outdated safety standards and ignoring an evidence base, dating back to the 70s, showing harm. Our use exposes us to incessant wireless technology radiation that have scientists, doctors, professors and health care professionals issuing warnings about their health hazards. Cell Biophysicist Dr. Martin Blank reported, “mobile phones are damaging the living cells in our bodies and killing many of us prematurely... We have created something that is harming us, and it is getting out of control.” He also states, “we are all part of a biological experiment without our informed consent.”
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is the gov't dept responsible for the safety standards for wireless technology radiation. The problem is, as with many gov't departments, their members are not elected but appointed and have worked for Big Wireless. Conflict of interest. Another example of "profit over people." They've also been running on 30 year old safety standards that were based on faulty science to begin with. Would you fly in a plane with 30 year old safety standards? They used a jello mold as a model of the human brain, completely ignoring the bioelectric nature of the brain. They have ignored every safety study published around the world that shows harm, including the gov'ts own documents and studies listed below.
A Harvard Ethics Review was even published by Norm Alster Captured Agency: How the Federal Communications Commission Is Dominated by the Industries It Presumably Regulates.
In February 2019, human rights attorney Dafna Tachover of Children's Health Defense filed a lawsuit against the corrupt FCC. Why didn't the old corporate media tell you about the results?
WE THE PEOPLE WON THIS LAWSUIT
Here is an outline of the events and links for the documents.
-the lawsuit was filed Feb 2020 by Children's Health Defense in the 9th circuit US Court where it was transferred to the DC circuit and joined by a similar lawsuit launched by the Environmental Health Trust and Consumers for Safe Cell Phones (some lawyers for the other plaintiffs changed)
-the judge seeing several of the same lawsuit asked all to file jointly, which was not preferred
-our advocacy group supplied several car loads of only the top evidence, 11,000 pages
-the FCC’s answer was that they still saw no evidence to change their guidelines!
-Children’s Health Defense, shocked, countered with, “fine, show us evidence that it does NOT cause harm, studies that you did not fund"
-the FCC’s reply was that they simply did not have to, they are the FCC
-this was so arrogant even the judge was quoted as saying to the FCC, “I am inclined to rule against you”
-August 13, 2021 the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit published its decision
-the court ruled that the FCC failed to consider the non-thermal and non-cancer evidence regarding the adverse health effects of wireless technology
-it was ruled that “the case be remanded to the commission to provide a reasoned explanation for its determination that its guidelines adequately protect against harmful effects of exposure to radiofrequency radiation…”
-according to the Court’s decision, the FCC failed to provide evidence to support its decision to not look at the non-cancer causing, non-thermal adverse health effects and that it failed to respond to the “extensive evidence” that was filed with the docket the FCC had opened and ignored
-the Court stated that the FCC’s failure undermines the Commission’s conclusions regarding even the adequacy of their testing procedures and conclusions about the long term exposure health implications of wireless technology that is now unprecedented
-the Court also stated that they found the FCC’s decision to ignore the submitted evidence to their docket was “arbitrary and capricious” in its failure to respond
-The Court’s decision continued to say, “the FCC completely failed to acknowledge, let alone respond to, comments concerning the impact of RF radiation on the environment… the record contains substantive evidence of potential environmental harms.”
-Children’s Health Defense chairman and attorney Robert F Kennedy Jr stated that “the Court’s decision exposes the FCC and FDA as captive agencies that have abandoned their duty to protect public health in favor of a single-minded crusade to increase telecom industry profits.”
-So far, the FCC has yet to change anything

This is the Children’s Health Defense statement-
This is the Court’s Decision-
This is the Court’s Judgment-
A New Hampshire state commission independently studied the evidence and voted to replace WiFi in schools with a wired connection for better health. They gave wireless tech health warnings to pregnant women and more concerns.
The evidence base is clear with tens of thousands of studies to pull from and also here ORSAA Database (Oceanic Radiofrequency Scientific Advisory Association). The link to cancer is clear, as well as to inflammation and damage to nearly all systems in the body, animals, insects and our environment. Most of what is written here is an oversimplification of this issue as an introduction. Please note that if one study is utilized on a clickable link, there are hundreds of other peer reviewed studies as well that have confirmed those findings (please see the evidence base portals at the end of this document.)
We Are BioElectric Beings
Our hearts are electric, our brains are electric and every cell in our body communicates with electrical impulses and voltage gated cell membranes that are extremely sensitive to signals from their environment. This is why we use an Electroencephalogram (EEG) to monitor the electrical activity of the brain, or an Electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG) to monitor the electrical activity of the heart. It’s really just common sense that the Electromagnetic waves from wireless technology radiation that penetrate our body cause disruption within our own body. We are now at the point of overwhelming evidence base as well, despite the wireless industry’s best attempts to fool us.
Industry will always tell you their products are safe (lead, asbestos, thalidomide, glyphosate, cigarettes, opioids).
We are smarter than that now.
The International EMF Scientist Appeal urgently calls upon the United Nations, the WHO, UNEP and the UN Member States for greater health protection on wireless exposure. In a letter to the UN Human Rights Advisory Committee, 2019, it states that ““Wireless communication technologies are rapidly becoming an integral part of every economic sector. But there is a rapidly growing body of scientific evidence of harm to people, plants, animals, and microbes caused by exposure to these technologies. It is our opinion that adverse health consequences of chronic and involuntary exposure of people to non-ionizing electromagnetic field sources are being ignored by national and international health organizations despite our repeated inquiries as well as inquiries made by many other concerned scientists, medical doctors and advocates. This constitutes a clear violation of human rights, as defined by the United Nations.”
The ground-breaking Bioinitiative Report (2007 and 2012) is a comprehensive review of a set of 3000 specific studies on biological effects caused by wireless technology. It was prepared by the world’s leading scientists and public health professionals and they conclude, “Bio-effects can also occur from just minutes of exposure(emphasis added) to mobile phone masts (cell towers), WiFi, and wireless “smart” utility meters that produce whole body exposure.” The cited effects on fertility, effects on the fetus, behavioural problems in children, leukemia and childhood cancers, genotoxicity, stress proteins, immune function problems, autism and alzheimer’s disease links, brain tumors and acoustic neuromas, and 44 more pages of biological effects found in just a sampling of a few thousand studies.
The Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly has been calling for “better prevention of environment-related health hazards” and exposing the need for dramatic reduction of EMF exposure. In Section 8 “The Assembly recommends that the member states of the Council of Europe:
...take all reasonable measures to reduce exposure to electromagnetic fields, especially to radio frequencies from mobile phones, and particularly the exposure to children and young people
...consider the scientific basis for the present standards on exposure to electromagnetic fields set by the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection, which have serious limitations, and apply ALARA principles, covering both thermal effects and the athermic or biological effects of electromagnetic emissions or radiation
...put in place information and awareness-raising campaigns on the risks of potentially harmful long-term biological effects on the environment and on human health, especially targeting children, teenagers and young people of reproductive age
...set preventive thresholds for levels of long-term exposure to microwaves in all indoor areas, in accordance with the precautionary principle, not exceeding 0.6 volts per metre, and in the medium term to reduce it to 0.2 volts per metre
...undertake appropriate risk-assessment procedures for all new types of device prior to licensing
...introduce clear labelling indicating the presence of microwaves or electromagnetic fields, the transmitting power or the specific absorption rate (SAR) of the device and any health risks connected with its use
...raise awareness on potential health risks of DECT wireless telephones, baby monitors and other domestic appliances which emit continuous pulse waves, if all electrical equipment is left permanently on standby, and recommend the use of wired, fixed telephones at home or, failing that, models which do not permanently emit pulse waves…” They go on to request regulations for children, locations of towers, warnings on devices, town planning and so much more.
In 2011, The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) at the World Health Organization (WHO) classified Radiofrequency Radiation from wireless tech as a 2B (possible) human carcinogen. Newer research calls for reclassification as a 2A (probable) carcinogen, or Group 1 (known) carcinogen. One of the biggest studies our government funded to prove wireless is safe, actually proved the opposite. The National Toxicology Program (NTP) Study done through the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences was released in 2017 showing harm and after results were released, an 11 expert panel review was ordered. Their 2018 results concurred and then concluded the original results were understated and called for the WHO to change their classification to a more dangerous carcinogenic effect.
Dr. Joel Moskowitz, director of the School of Public Health at University of Berkeley, California summarizes the NTP study, “...the NTP published its FDA sponsored study admitting CLEAR EVIDENCE that wireless technology is causing cancer and breaks the DNA. This is a very inconvenient truth to the government that allowed this uncontrolled proliferation of wireless technology including forcing it on children in schools and now forcing 5G intense antennas in front of people’s homes and children's windows. Instead of warning the public the report tries to downplay the public health risk - clearly pressure by the government to do so. This is not a democracy - when government officials are afraid to speak the truth and forced to say things against their better judgement.”
The important thing to note about this study is that it’s the largest long term study of low level RF, and it used 2G radiation at non-thermal levels. Industry funded studies tend to use high level, thermal effects only and the FCC standards only cite thermal effects yet there are global studies of low level non-thermal hazards. Considering the NTP study showed clear evidence of harm at 2G low level, non-thermal wireless radiation, why are we rolling out 5G which is more complex signalling and places multiple small cells every three houses and at the level of a second storey bedroom? The industry will tell you these small cells have a lower power output, but the fact that they are closer, sometimes within 4 feet of your window, proximity is unforgiving and people are hitting their threshold faster and getting sick. More information on measurements can be found at the end of this section. According to Building Biologist and EMF Specialist, Oram Miller, “Building Biology recommends RF levels of one hundred thousand to one million times less than the FCC.”
Gov't Documents Show Health Hazards
In 2018, The Ramazzini Institute study from Italy actually verified the NTP’s findings at even lower non-thermal RF intensities. They also found brain tumors and schwannomas in both male and female rats. This shows effects are reproducible, however, the FCC, FDA, and industry continue to ignore the data.
Studies showing harm date back to the 1930’s onward and have been compiled by the US Navy, US Air Force, NASA, US Military and US gov’t as early as the 1970s. The first cell phone was made in the early 1970’s, and made commercially available in 1983. However, in 1975 in Navy Scientist Allan Frey concluded in his study Neural function and behavior that microwave (wireless) radiation breaks the blood brain barrier and has adverse behavioural effects that are caused by the modulation of the waves and not by the carrier wave. This pulsating modulation of the frequencies is actually what makes your cell phone and wifi more hazardous than your microwave oven. In the early 1970s Allan Frey’s studies were funded by the Office of Naval Research and the American army because of the expanding use of radars by the U.S. military at that time. The rats and frogs he tested on back then reacted to smaller doses of radiation than the massive doses our current cell phones radiate.
These findings have been confirmed again and again in studies since including, Brain Research Journal, Oscar, 1977, Journal of Radiation & Environmental BioPhysics, Merritt, 1978, Neurosurgeon Dr. Leif Salford, 1993, discovered that cell phone radiation damaged the blood brain barrier at much lower levels than your cell phone currently, making most wireless emitting devices today complete health hazards with the exponential increase in wireless radiation. In fact, by 2008, he actually used microwave radiation to break the blood-brain barrier of his patients in order to give them chemotherapy (chemotherapeutic agents do not penetrate the blood brain barrier normally). He summarized his findings about breaking the blood-brain barrier in this video.
A key concept to understanding the health hazards of wireless technology radiation (also known as electromagnetic radiation (EMR) or microwave and millimeter wave radiation, and radiofrequency radiation) is that it’s man-made non-ionizing radiation and there is clear evidence of the documented harmful health effects. Ionizing radiation such as x-rays are known to immediately break DNA strands. However, non-ionizing radiation has been shown creating single and double strand DNA breakage at lower than thermal levels with just a little more exposure. At one time X-Rays were not thought to be harmful and they used x-ray fluorosopes to measure feet in shoe stores, until salesmen developed cancers and eventually x-rays were proven harmful. How long will it take for regulating gov’t departments to do their job?
We all love our technology but we are calling for safer technology. You don’t have to access the internet wirelessly, fiber optic cable is faster, more secure and safer for health because it doesn’t use pulsating, modulating wireless radiation. According to neuroscientist and professor Dr. Olle Johansson, as of 2018, in most areas where people are living, wireless radiation is about a quintillion times greater (that’s a 1 with eighteen zeros after it) than the natural background electromagnetic fields nature intended for our bodies and all biology on this planet to evolve within.
Dr. William Rea, founder and director of the Dallas Environmental Health Center and past president of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, has explained, “Sensitivity to electromagnetic radiation is the emerging health problem of the 21st century. It is imperative health practitioners, governments, schools and parents learn more about it. The human health stakes are significant.” More and more people are hitting their threshold in our ElectroSmog environment and getting sick.
The evidence of harm is clear (please see evidence databases and websites below). The claims of the wireless industry that it is safe, are simply false. Some of the main mechanisms for harm are that it has been proven to break the blood brain barrier (at levels even lower than a cell phone) leaving the brain unprotected from foreign substances and setting up a cascade of degeneration, creating many specific types of cancers, harm to every system in the body and creating DNA damage through oxidative stress. Stated simply, oxidative stress creates inflammation and DNA damage, the state from which all disease starts and progresses from. Essentially, wireless technology creates so much oxidative stress that it predisposes one to develop the disease of their genetic destiny decades sooner than they ever would have before due. Remember, genetics loads the gun, environment pulls the trigger.
Economic interests have always interfered with public health (lead, asbestos, thalidomide, glyphosate, cigarettes). The fact remains that this wireless technology radiation is the biggest change to our environment and many scientists and doctors are calling it the biggest health crisis happening right under our noses. In 2018, Dr. James Ziobron in Michigan stated that in 22 years of practice, in the last 4-5 years 89% of his patients have some issue with electro-pollution and feel better having turned off the wireless on all devices in their houses. It’s important to note that ElectroSmog poisoning affects everyone differently at their weakest link and different thresholds. Peer reviewed studies show everyone is affected, you may just be blaming something else.

The cumulative wireless technology radiation or ElectroSmog that we are living in, is a massive environmental stressor and trigger factor for every disease. Dr. Martin Blank, who was a leading researcher in Bioelectromagnetics at Columbia University notes, “cells in the body react to EMFs as potentially harmful. DNA in living cells produce a biochemical stress response,” and that is just the beginning. Countries are beginning to take the precautionary principle with wireless technology. In January 2019, an Italian court ordered the government (Ministries of the Environment and Education) to launch a campaign to advise the public of the health risks from mobile and cordless phones. Environmental Health Trust lists over twenty countries that have explicit health advice to the public to lower cell phone radiation exposure.
Beyond the ElectroSmog at ground level in our environment, currently there are plans to launch more than 60,000 satellites into low orbit to beam wireless radiation around the globe, despite its health effects, despite meteorologists warning they will no longer be able to predict the weather and save lives, despite the warning of astronomers regarding the loss of enjoying and exploring the night sky or even NASA’s concerns about space junk and these satellites making launches difficult. The International 5G Space Appeal has over 3,300 pages of hundreds of thousands of signatures from doctors, health professionals and concerned citizens in over 200 countries. It states- “We the undersigned scientists, doctors, environmental organizations and citizens from 216 nations and rising, that urgently call for a halt to the deployment of the 5G (fifth generation) wireless network, including 5G from space satellites. 5G will massively increase exposure to radio frequency (RF) radiation on top of the 2G, 3G and 4G networks for telecommunications already in place. RF radiation has been proven harmful for humans and the environment. The deployment of 5G constitutes an experiment on humanity and the environment that is defined as a crime under international law.”
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is in charge of allotting frequency spectrum and allegedly establishing wireless safety regulations in the US. It is also important to note that international EMF exposure guidelines are very controversial and there are zero standards for the cumulative man-made ElectroSmog in our environment that penetrates our bodies everyday. In 2014, The Department of Interior declared the FCC standards for cell phone radiation are “out of date and inapplicable” as they do not adequately protect life. In fact, the FCC has not changed its standards for wireless radiation since 1996 (that were developed from 1991 data) and also still does not take into consideration the considerable non-thermal health effects or even long term low level exposure. What did your cell phone look like in 1996? How many people had “smart phones” and devices constantly downloading video and connected to towers? ““Would you want to fly in an airplane with 24-year-old safety standards?” asked Dr. Devra Davis, president of the Environmental Health Trust. Dr. Paul Heroux of McGill University Faculty of Medicine in Montreal, QC, Canada is a professor of Epidemiology, Biostatistics & Occupational Health and teaches courses in Toxicology and the Health Effects of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR). His work shows clear, drastic effects on cancer cells at 500 times below the current FCC guidelines. Dr. Heroux comments that “the evidence is so strong that you can be certain that the standards used by the FCC to manage health effects are wrong.” The change in our environment from this exponential increase of wireless radiation since 1996 is monumental and ignored by the FCC. Do you think this demonstrates interest in protecting public health?
On Dec 4, 2019, the FCC officially made its position statement and declined to update these 1996 standards despite evidence, attempts from scientists and advocacy groups demanding it. The FCC was appointed by Congress in 1996 to regulate the health and safety of the wireless industry, however, the FCC is not a health agency and the 1996 guidelines were incomplete, incorrect and already obsolete. In 2012, the general accountability office in Congress reported that the FCC did not review its guidelines since 1996 (which were actually set from 1991 studies). In 2013 the FCC opened a docket for public comment and on Dec 4, 2019 that docket was closed and contrary to the contents and evidence base in it, the FCC announced there is no evidence wireless radiation is harmful and there’s no need for reviewing their safety guidelines from 1996.
In response to the FCC’s decision that their outdated 1996 safety standards are still protective, Robert Kennedy Jr. as chairman of The Children’s Health Defense (CHD) and his team, submitted a lawsuit over this arrogant disregard for the health of our children, ourselves and this planet.
The CHD press release explains this “provides a rare opportunity to sue the FCC and expose its disregard for public health that has been causing so many injuries and deaths, including among children. We will be representing the many children who have been injured. This is the opportunity we have been waiting for; a successful lawsuit on this will be a game changer.”
Another lawsuit was also filed by the Environmental Health Trust, “The FCC decision flies in the face of mounting scientific evidence demonstrating harm from RF radiation and runs counter to the science-based decisions of other governments that have devoted major resources to evaluating new evidence on the issue and have taken steps to curtail exposures as a result of their findings.” Every public health disaster starts with economic interests favored over scientific evidence.
As updated in the beginning of this document, WE THE PEOPLE WON THAT LAWSUIT as the federal court judges admitted "extensive evidence of harm" and charged the FCC with updating safety standards... they have yet to do so. This is being appealed.
It is also of worthy note to understand how the wireless industry downplays the health hazards of wireless technology radiation. One of the misconceptions spread by the wireless industry is that “there is no mechanism by which non-thermal levels of RF/Microwave radiation emitted by wireless technology can cause harm.” There are tens of thousands of studies globally that show harm. Even a small sampling of a meta-analysis (in 93 out of 100 studies) found that oxidative stress, a well-established mechanism that leads to cancer, other health problems, and DNA damage, is a primary mechanism involved in the adverse effects of wireless microwave radiation.
A brief history lesson in legislation illustrates the following chain of events. Lloyds of London and Swiss Re Insurance companies refused to insure the wireless industry due to known health effects of wireless technology radiation, leaving the industry to make sure they did not get sued for these health effects. Swiss Re even called 5G a high impact liability risk. Wireless companies may tell their shareholders there are health risks but the public will never hear about it. TMOBILE voices concerns about health risks In its annual Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) 10-K filing, "Our business could be adversely affected by findings of product liability for health or safety risks from wireless devices and transmission equipment, as well as by changes to regulations or radio frequency emission standards." Please refer to page 18 in the document.
The 1996 Telecom Act was a wireless industry lobbied legislation that transferred the power to regulate health and safety of wireless communications from the FDA and EPA to the FCC who takes their cue from the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, who do not have any health professionals on staff and have decades of their own studies of the harm of wireless tech, but swept it under the rug to set their standards). However the FCC is a frequency auctioning commission, also with not one health professional. Section 704 of this Act took away our right to protest the placement of any wireless infrastructure based on environmental effects (this includes health effects). There are dozens of municipalities in the U.S. who have been sued by the wireless industry for attempting to raise the health issue when dealing with placement of cell towers and infrastructure. Not only does this violate our 1st and 5th amendment rights, this places preference to industry rolling out their infrastructure with no discussion of health effects. Essentially the FCC is a captured agency as detailed in a Harvard Ethics review by Norm Alster in Captured Agency: How the Federal Communications Commission Is Dominated by the Industries It Presumably Regulates. The current chairman Ajit Pai is an ex-Verizon lawyer, previous Chairman Tom Wheeler was head of the wireless lobby association for over ten years, both showing major conflict of interest.
We know every disaster movie begins with scientists who are blowing the whistle, but nobody is listening. In today’s world, more people now understand that many gov’t departments have put corporate interest above our health. In the past, public health disasters have always seen economic interests ignore scientific evidence. We have the power to awaken each other and call for safer technology to protect ourselves, children, family, community and all biology on our planet that is affected by wireless technology radiation.
You can measure these EMFs in your environment and learn how to mitigate them and practice wireless hygiene in our section for the Wireless Hygiene Action Plan Starter! All you require is an EMF meter that measures electric, magnetic and radiofrequency wireless radiation. They are affordable and easy to learn, often utilizing sound and color (green, orange, red being the most dangerous) readings to help you protect yourself and your children in all your environments.
The Institute of Building Biology, concerned with healthy buildings for sustainable living, offers the safer indoor environment standards most focused on health studies. The international standards vary considerably and have not been updated in decades and were inappropriate to begin with not taking into account non-thermal and cumulative effects. For an eye-opening read into your devices “legal fine-print” warnings click here. Did you know that all devices will tell you to not touch them and keep them at least 5mm-15mm away from direct contact, essentially ridiculous and impossible for the actual use of the device.
KEY POINTS FOR MEASURING RF EMF
Remember, Radiofrequency (RF) EMF of our wireless devices is only one of the offending EMFs (electric fields, magnetic fields, dirty electricity, RF). Understand that these guidelines were set by ICNIRP in 1991 and put into the 1996 Telecom Act by the FCC. They do not use pulsed modulated waveforms like our devices, they do not hold the phone on the body, they do not use long term exposure the way we use our devices always around us, they only measured thermal effects and do not take into consideration the non-thermal biological hazards, nor do they account for long term exposure and cumulative ElectroSmog.
Taken from Building Biology EMF Specialist Oram Miller’s PDF Presentation on EMFs….
-FCC’s safe exposure guidelines for cell phones are listed at 1.0 milliWatts/centimeter squared (mW/cm2)
-Yet that translates to 10 million microWatts/meter squared (uW/m2), the units the rest of the world uses
-Other countries recommend lower RF safe exposure levels than the US
-Building Biology recommends RF levels of one hundred thousand to one million times less than FCC (10-100 uW/m2 or 0.000, 0.000,001-1mW/cm2)
Wireless radiation cannot be seen or heard until you have one of these meters and you begin to understand the ElectroSmog is out of control everywhere. Taking steps to reduce your exposure is crucial for the health of you and your family. Make your home a sanctuary from this pollution. You and your children will feel better!
Our hope with these educational resources is to educate and awaken people for you to make informed choices when it comes to the current landscape of wireless technology. It’s also our hope to inspire young minds and the current tech sector to work on safer technological advancements. We’re pretty sure that if you were given the choice between faster downloads and faster cancers, or asking for the development of safer tech, you would make the right decision for the future of our children and all life on this planet.
GLOSSARY: For the understanding of this issue, let’s review some key definitions.
-1G,2G,3G,4G,5G- development of the generation (G) of wireless networks. 2G allowed voice calls and some texting to be first transmitted using wireless technology radiation. 3G allowed mobile phones, computers & various electronic devices to access the internet wirelessly. 4G brought higher speeds and power density allowing us to stream videos and more. 5G generation of wireless networks is a more complicated concept that allows faster speeds and more power density and the ability to connect any device or object that has a wireless technology radiation antenna (called the misnomer of “SMART” devices) to the internet, which will now be called the “internet of things” (IoT). The intent is to allow everything in our house, school, home, office or public space to communicate with each other in a convenient and yet health hazardous ElectroSmog.
-Electromagnetic Waves/Electromagnetic Fields- invisible waveforms of different frequencies that move at the speed of light. There are natural EMF such as light and man made, non-native (nnEMF) that emits from cell phones, WiFi, Bluetooth, radio waves, radar etc.
-Electromagnetic Spectrum- charts man-made and natural frequency groups for types of radiation.
-ElectroSmog- a term used to describe the effect of environmental pollution that is the thick, invisible amount of wireless technology radiation that is actually surrounding our body and is a quintillion times (that’s a 1 with eighteen zeros following it) more than what nature intended for us to exist in.
-ES/EHS-Electromagnetic Sensitivity/Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity. When a person has reached their threshold for wireless technology radiation in their environment and is aware of their symptomology and illness presents as it relates to man-made EMF. The legal term in Microwave Sickness and it was first recognized in the NY Court of Appeals in 1982. NASA also acknowledges microwave sickness and harm from microwave radiation.
-EMF- Electromagnetic Fields that are invisible forms of energy. We are concerned with man made Electric fields, Magnetic fields and especially Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR)
-EMF (TYPES OF)- Electric Fields- household wiring, electronics, lighting, powerstrips… to your cell phone emit an electric field when turned on, measured in volts per meter.. Magnetic fields- can be created by the same man-made devices when in use, and also circuit breaker panels on the wall, transformers, motors, electronic chargers, power lines, faulty wiring and measured in milligauss. Electromagnetic/Radio Frequency/Microwave Radiation- from devices that transmit sound, text, images and video (cell phones and antennas, WiFi, bluetooth, radar, surveillance cameras, cordless phones, baby monitors…), smart meters and microwave ovens and measured many ways such as volts per meter (power) and microwatts per meter squared (intensity).
-EMF Meter- a device that consumers can use to measure the EMFs in their environment. For the beginner it is recommended to purchase a 3-in1 meter that measures electric, magnetic and RF EMF.
-FCC- The Federal Communications Commission division of the gov’t in charge of auctioning and regulating the electromagnetic spectrum of frequencies, also in charge of protecting the public from the wireless industry that it regulates. However, it is important to note that essentially the FCC is a captured agency as detailed by a Harvard Ethics review by Norm Alster in Captured Agency: How the Federal Communications Commission Is Dominated by the Industries It Presumably Regulates. (Current chairman Ajit Pai is a Verizon lawyer, previous chairman Tom Wheeler was head of the wireless lobby association for over ten years, showing major conflicts of interest.)
-Frequency- these electromagnetic waves have a frequency that oscillates a specific number of times a second, and is measured in Hertz. These are the frequencies on the electromagnetic spectrum that the FCC auctions off to the wireless industry companies.
-Hertz (Hz)- the unit of measurement of frequency
-ICNIRP- International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (also known to have ties to industry unfortunately)
-Microwaves/Millimeter Waves are EMFs on the higher part of the non-ionizing radiation spectrum of man-made frequencies (below infrared light).
-Microwave Oven- a good example of non-ionizing thermal levels of electromagnetic radiation used to heat water molecules to cook food. The frequency used is 2.45Hz. We know not to stand too close to the microwave. While there is thermal effect heating going on inside, the outside has non-thermal radiation that can be measured to reach far outside your home. This is the SAME frequency used in WiFi, with the difference being a “lower intensity” of “non-thermal” radiation and added modulation/pulsation. However, these days, in most schools, homes and public places, the amount of non-thermal radiation can be measured as the same as right outside a microwave oven door due to the cumulative effect of all our wireless gadgets!
-Modulation- a microwave carrier wave frequency is used to transmit our data on, the modulation is the different ways that data can be organized on the carrier wave. The microwave carrier wave is harmful to start, while the modulation is shown to be the most harmful element of wireless technology and most often overlooked by the wireless industry studies unfortunately.
-RF- Radio Frequency, a man made set of electromagnetic fields of frequencies in the lower part of the electromagnetic spectrum.
-Radiation- energy moving as electromagnetic waves through the air. Divided into “ionizing” (higher frequency/higher energy causing immediate biological effect through knocking an electron out of the orbit of atoms in our body) and “non-ionizing” (lower frequency/lower energy and do not cause an immediate loss of an electron).
- “The Thermal Effect” of wireless technology- wireless radiation is “non-ionizing” radiation and therefore it was first assumed that it is not harmful unless the intensity (power) creates a thermal (heating) effect on the body. This assumption was proven false 45 years ago. It still has the power to knock electrons out of an atom (oxidative stress/free radical damage/inflammation) at non-thermal levels and is based on exposure threshold. Evidence has been seen since the 1930s by the Air Force, Navy, CIA, NASA and more, showing health effects to every system in the body. However, the current guidelines set by the FCC are only based on thermal heating effects of radiation and neglect the overwhelming evidence that shows health hazards at non-thermal effects, and further still, nothing can really study the deleterious effects of the cumulative effect in our environment that we face everyday.
