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.

Cell Phone Radiation Boosts Cancer Rates in Animals

From Microwave News

U.S. Government Expected To Advise Public of Tumor Risk
The cell phone cancer controversy will never be the same again.

The U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) is expected to issue a public announcement that cell phone radiation presents a cancer risk for humans. The move comes soon after its recently completed study showed statistically significant increases in cancer among rats that had been exposed to GSM or CDMA signals for two-years.

Discussions are currently underway among federal agencies on how to inform the public about the new findings. NTP senior managers believe that these results should be released as soon as possible because just about everyone is exposed to wireless radiation all the time and therefore everyone is potentially at risk.

Stop Untested Microwave Radiation of Children’s Brains and Eyes EHT Scientists Urge Google

Excerpt

From the Environmental Health Trust

Excerpt

Scientific imaging shows how children absorb radiation from Smartphones in Virtual reality cardboard positions.

Environmental Health Trust (EHT) scientists are calling on Google to stop the spread into schools of wireless virtual reality system Global Expeditions Pioneer Program where middle-school children hold a cell phone encased in a cardboard box in front of their eyes to take virtual expeditions to Mars, the moon, and other special places.

“Two-way microwave radiation transceivers, in the form of Smartphones, should not be used directly in front of children’s eyes and brains,” cautions University of Utah Distinguished Prof. Om Gandhi, who is one of the original developers of testing to evaluate wireless radiation from cellphones and is a Senior Advisor to EHT.

Prof. Gandhi added, “We have never tested microwave radiating devices directly in front of the young developing eye. The absence of proof of harm at this point does not mean that we have evidence of safety.”

Cindy Sage, the Bioinitiative reports co-editor on smart phone virtual shopping

From Cindy Sage. A letter sent to the New York Times:

Dear New York Times people,

I have received your gift of a Google Cardboard viewer thanking me for being a loyal subscriber to the Times.

What a hilarious debacle in the name of ‘gifting’ and thanking your customers. I read and respect the NY Times, but this is a real mistake in judgment.

What you didn’t tell me is that this is a distinct health hazard to the very loyal subscribers like myself whom you are trying to thank with this gift. This would not be approvable under any Institutional Review Board as a scientific experiment on humans, without informed consent from them for exposing them to a classified Possible Human Carcinogen (WHO IARC Group 2B). No IRB would or could approve it.

Putting a cell phone at your forehead is ridiculously risky. Where are the health warnings?

Please see www.bioinitiative.org or any of the other 1000 or so scientific studies
on the risks of cell phone radiation.

Thanks but no thanks. Looking for the quick demise of this ill-conceived customer relations program.

Cindy Sage, MA

Ebay / Myer’s new virtual reality shopping store ignores possible eye damage to the user

In a world’s first partnership between Ebay and Myer’s department store a virtual reality shopping mall now allows the user to access to thousands of items simply by downloading the eBay Virtual Reality Department Store app on their smart phone. What is also required is a foldout smart phone holder headset (called SHOPTICALS) for your phone which allows you to place the phone immediately in front of your eyes and start shopping.

As clearly seen, this places the smart phone about 2 inches from the user’s eyes, which will be exposing the eyes to the phone’s light and microwave emissions when using the headset. This should be of concern to both Ebay and Myer, not only because it might harm their customers but also because of the existing evidence (below) that their technology poses a possible risk of eye damage to the user. If this turns out to be the case it exposes these corporations to a class-action litigation risk.

It is a disgrace that so many of the myriad of new devices being marketed are developed and sold without the slightest consideration of possible long term harm other than thermal (see last message).

EMR Aware Newsletter now available online

From the folks at the EMR Aware Newsletter

Excerpt

May – June 2016

This free occasional newsletter is published by EMR Aware, a group of concerned citizens based in Northern NSW Australia. It is intended to help provide up-to-date information on the health, environmental and social impacts of modern electro-technologies. This is done in the pubic interest to assist a fair and balanced discussion of the topics at hand. Particular attention is given to content that may not otherwise be made available or openly acknowledged by industry and their government regulators.

We invite readers to consider the scientific evidence and trending opinion on this page and throughout prior editions of our newsletter. There seems little doubt a tobacco-style cover-up of the adverse effects of EMR is underway by those reliant upon its profitability or surveillance potential. You can help reddress this situation by forwarding the link to this web page to as many interested persons and organisations as possible. Anyone wishing to receive our newsletter regularly do so by sending an email with the word “subscribe”. Thank you for visiting.

  • 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.
