Health issues related to electromagnetic radiation exposure and chemical exposure

  • EMFacts Consultancy, founded in 1994 by Don Maisch, has produced a wide range of reports and papers dealing with various health issues related to human exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation.

    This website was established in 1997 as an independent source of information on the possible health and safety issues arising from human exposure to Electromagnetic Energy (EME).

    This consists of both 50 and 60 Hertz (Hz) Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) from our use of electricity and Radio-frequency/Microwave (RF/MW) Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) from telecommunications.

    This site is designed to be utilized as a resource by individuals, groups, organisations and communities who are trying to empower themselves by gaining a better understanding of the complex issues involved with this important environmental issue.

    EMFacts Consultancy also offers a range of advisory services.

Forthcoming book: Mobile Communications and Children’s Health

In 2014, two members of the Russian National Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (RNCNIRP) published, in Russian, a book titled Mobile Communications and Children’s Health

There now is a translation is progress and it is hoped that an authorized translation will be completed early in the New Year. It is planned (depending on funding) that printed copies will be available in Europe and Australia.

In the meantime here is a partial introduction and table of contents.

So stay tuned for this one…… SNIP

ACEBR’s annual spin: Science and Wireless 2016

The Australian Centre for Electromagnetic Bioeffects Research (ACEBR) will be hosting Science and Wireless 2016 at RMIT University this November.

22 Nov 2016
Time: 04:00 PM-07:00 PM

The focus of this year’s event will be a keynote presentation on ‘Radiofrequency radiation applications in treatment of Alzheimer’s disease’ followed by a brief review of ICNIRP exposure guidelines and 5G standards.

A facilitated Q&A panel discussion with the ACEBR Chief Investigators and guest presenters will provide opportunities for open discussion on the topics, followed by informal conversations during the poster session over drinks and light snacks. SNIP……

Nerve Disrupting Frequencies Radiating from “Smart” Meters

NOTE: In my previous papers and submissions on the negative health impacts of smart meters I took the position that the worst case is when a smart meter is on the external wall next to a bedhead. See a sample of case histories here. One of my recommendations was, if all else fails in avoiding the installation of a smart meter – insure, at least, that it is placed well away from sleeping areas to reduce exposure. In one of the homes I have surveyed they took that advice and had the house wiring altered to have the smart meter placed on the garage wall which was separate from the house.

The following Youtube presentation backs all this up….SNIP

Health Risks Associated with Smart Meter Wireless Emissions

Posted on October 2, 2016b by K.T. Weaver, SkyVision Solutions


Article Key Points

There is a “reasonable basis” for concern regarding health risks associated with smart meter wireless emissions.
It is “unreasonable” to involuntarily and chronically expose consumers to the electromagnetic energy emitted by smart meters.

Over the past three years at this website I have detailed a number of concerns related to utility smart meters including financial costs, privacy invasions, cyber threats, and the increased risk of fires as compared with analog meters. Another concern relates to health risks associated with wireless emissions.

Based upon my technical review conducted over two years ago, I created a web page that documented support for the assertion that adverse health impacts could be expected due to exposure to wireless emissions from utility smart meters….. SNIP

Monsanto and the EPA, a loving embrace????

From the Huffington Post

Upcoming EPA Meetings on Safety of Monsanto Weed Killer Drawing Scrutiny
By Carey Giliam

Bayer better be paying attention to this.

The German company’s intended $66 billion acquisition of Monsanto Co. comes amid growing concern over the future of the company’s top-selling weed killer, a chemical called glyphosate that Monsanto introduced to the world 40 years ago as the active ingredient in its Roundup herbicide. Monsanto reaps billions of dollars annually, roughly a third of its sales, from those products.
So it’s no small matter that in mid-October the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) plans to spend four days holding public meetings with a scientific advisory panel on the topic of whether or not glyphosate can cause cancer. The idea of shining a public spotlight on this mounting concern about the world’s most widely used herbicide has not set well with Monsanto and the rest of the industry that profits from glyphosate products like Roundup. Agrichemical interests have gone so far as to tell the EPA that the meetings should not be held at all, and have said that if they are, many of the world’s top scientists should be excluded from participating.
The industry clearly does not welcome the public scrutiny the meetings bring, but it should be satisfied that the EPA has made it clear it has no intention of contradicting Monsanto’s claims of glyphosate’s safety. After all, in a Sept. 12 report issued to the public, the EPA offered a 227-page evaluation of glyphosate’s cancer-causing potential that ended with a “proposed” conclusion that glyphosate was ‘”not likely to be carcinogenic to human’ at doses relevant to human health risk assessment.” All of this before the meetings are held.

  • Welcome

    "Listen to both sides and you will be enlightened; heed only one side and you will be blinded. We are facing a big knowledge gap in evaluating EMF health risk at this stage. This is the reason why there is no satisfactory and generally acceptable EMF standard around the world. I think an international EMF exposure standard might only be established on the principle of science and democracy, on the principle of mutual understanding and to reach unanimity through consultation." - Opening remarks by Professor Huai Chiang at the 3rd International EMF Seminar in China, 13-17 October 2003.
