August 31, 2007 - Serious Public Health Concerns Raised Over Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) from Powerlines and Cell Phones. (pdf) (html)

An international working group of scientists, researchers and public health policy professionals (The BioInitiative Working Group) has released its report on electromagnetic fields (EMF) and health. They document serious scientific concerns about current limits regulating how much EMF is allowable from power lines, cell phones, and many other sources of EMF exposure in daily life.

The report concludes the existing standards for public safety are inadequate to protect public health.

Warren's comment

This report is not spin, it is based on study of at least 2000 scientific reports.

The study gives all these reports and many more a voice loud enough I hope to wake up governments and those who have the power to change the standards governing the exposure of the majority of Earth's human population to radiation pollution.

Just like global warming threatens all life so does too much radiation. The danger has been reported, the need for new standards is accepted by the majority of scientists in this field.

The lobbies are working to protect industry, jobs, their quarterly financial reports. They are concerned about class action since many have no insurance coverage. It has been refused. The asbestos industry is still paying for the disease it produced

Many supporting voters can outweigh a few rich supporting lobbies and the telecom and computer industries' wish to avoid the costs and uncertainties of changing their products so they do not cause illness.

The new collective voice from the science community speaks loudly. Spread the awareness of what is being said...This is the only way to create the necessity that allows governments to create costly change
