William Rea, MD, Founder & Director of the Environmental Health Center, past President of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine "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."
Martin Blank, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics, Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons, Author of the BioInitiative Report’s section on Stress Proteins "Cells in the body react to EMFs as potentially harmful, just like to other environmental toxins, including heavy metals and toxic chemicals. The scientific evidence tells us that our safety standards are inadequate, and that we must protect ourselves from exposure."
Samuel Milham MD, MPH Medical epidemiologist in occupational epidemiology. First scientist to report increased leukemia and other cancers in electrical workers and to demonstrate that the childhood age peak in leukemia emerged in conjunction with the spread of residential electrification.
“Very recently, new research is suggesting that nearly all the human plagues which emerged in the twentieth century, like common acute lymphoblastic leukemia in children, female breast cancer, malignant melanoma and asthma, can be tied to some facet of our use of electricity. There is an urgent need for governments and individuals to take steps to minimize community and personal EMF exposures.”
Martin Halper, EPA Director of Analysis & Support "I have never seen a set of epidemiological studies that remotely approached the weight of evidence we are seeing with ELF electromagnetic fields."
B. Blake Levitt, Former New York Times award winning journalist and author of the definitive Electromagnetic Fields "So much more is known about EMFs then just a decade ago…it is a potentially titanic problem ...prudent avoidance is exactly what the term says: reduce your EMF exposure as much as you can without inconveniencing yourself unduly or unsafely."
David Carpenter, MD, Public Health Physician Professor, Environmental Health Sciences, Director, Institute for Health and the Environment, School of Public Health, graduate of the Harvard School of Medicine, University of Albany, SUNY, Co-Editor, The BioInitiative Report
"The fields associated with electricity are commonly called “extremely low frequency” fields (ELF), while those used in communication and microwave ovens are called “radiofrequency” (RF) fields.
Studies of people have shown that both ELF and RF exposures result in an increased risk of cancer, and that this occurs at intensities that are too low to cause tissue heating. Unfortunately, all of our exposure standards are based on the false assumption that there are no hazardous effects at intensities that do not cause tissue heating. Based on the existing science, many public health experts believe it is possible we will face an epidemic of cancers in the future resulting from uncontrolled use of cell phones and increased population exposure to WiFi and other wireless devices.
