EMF Health Effects Study Released

Everyone always asks me – whether they’re skeptics or not – where can I read peer-reviewed, published studies about EMF health effects? “Are there really studies linking magnetic fields and radio frequency radiation to cancer?”  Well… this is it!  Here is a big dose of reality for all the naysayers.

EMF Health Effects – BioInitiative Report 2012

EMF Health Effects – BioInitiative Report 2012

This excerpt from the updated BioIniative Website:

“PUBLICATION DATE:  December 31, 2012

WHERE: The BioInitiative 2012 Report will be published at www.bioinitiative.org.  Free download.

WHAT IS IT:   A report by 29 independent scientists and health experts from around the world* about possible risks from wireless technologies and electromagnetic fields.  It updates the BioInitiative 2007 Report.

WHAT IT COVERS:  The science, public health, public policy and global response to the growing health issue of chronic exposure to electromagnetic fields and radiofrequency radiation in the daily life of billions of people around the world.  Covers brain tumor risks from cell phones, damage to DNA and genes, effects on memory, learning, behavior, attention; sleep disruption and cancer and neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s disease.  Effects on sperm  and miscarriage (fertility and reproduction), effects of wireless on the brain development of the fetus and infant, and effects of wireless classrooms on children and adolescents is addressed. Mechanisms for biological action and public health responses in other countries are discussed.  Therapeutic use of very low intensity EMF and RFR are addressed.

WHAT IS NEW: This update covers about 1800 new studies reporting bioeffects and adverse health effects of electromagnetic fields (powerlines, electrical wiring, appliances and hand-held devices) – and wireless technologies (cell and cordless phones, cell towers, WI-FI, wireless laptops, wireless routers, baby monitors, surveillance systems, wireless utility meters (‘smart meters’), etc.

*The BioInitiative 2012 Report has been prepared by 29 authors from ten countries*,  ten holding medical degrees (MDs), 21 PhDs, and three MsC, MA or MPHs.  Among the authors are three former presidents of the Bioelectromagnetics Society, and five full members of BEMS.  One distinguished author is the Chair of the Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation.   Another is a Senior Advisor to the European Environmental Agency.”

EMF Health Effects

I encourage everyone to read this culmination of up-to-date, peer-reviewed, published studies linking EMF and RF to a broad array of health problems. With all these studies it is overdue for our regulatory agencies to take note and get serious about more stringent, enforceable exposure limits! If you buy organic food or worry about air or water quality… perhaps this report will make you equally concerned about the electrosmog we are blanketed in every day.
