    Wireless Industry’s Patented System to Reduce Cancer Risk from Wireless Local Networks Never Adopted

    From Joel M. Moskowitz, PRLog (Press Release) – Mar 11,, 2013

    A major telecom company patented a system to reduce “electrosmog” from wireless local networks to reduce cancer risks associated with non-thermal exposures to microwave radiation. The industry has known the risks for many years but has failed to act.


    PRLog (Press Release) – Mar. 11, 2013 – Swisscom AG, a major telecommunications provider in Switzerland, filed U.S. and international patent applications for an innovative system to reduce “electrosmog” from wireless local networks (i.e., Wi-Fi) in 2003.

    This patent application acknowledged the cancer risk from exposure to wireless radiation eight years before the WHO”™s International Agency for Research on Cancer declared that radiofrequency energy, including cell phone and Wi-Fi radiation, is a “possible carcinogen” to humans, like DDT and lead.

    Furthermore, the application acknowledged that low-intensity, non-thermal exposures to wireless radiation is genotoxic. This is critical because the current U.S. regulatory standard for wireless radiation, established in 1996, does not protect us from non-thermal exposures.
