    FCC: 98 Scientific Experts Demand Stronger Regulation of Cellphone Radiation

    From Joel Moskowitz:

    Press Release

    Of the more than 950 submissions to the FCC regarding its outmoded, 18-year-old cell phone radiation regulations, almost all call for stronger regulation. Most cite research that finds cell phone radiation harmful to humans.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Joel M. Moskowitz, Ph.D., PRLog (Press Release)- Aug. 4, 2014 – BERKELEY, Calif. — In response to the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) request for input regarding its radiofrequency radiation regulations adopted in 1996, more than 950 individuals and organizations submitted thousands of testimonials, research papers and scientific publications. Almost all of these submissions supported the need for stronger cell phone radiation regulations.

    The submissions included four resolutions signed by scientific experts who have published research on wireless radiation and health in scientific journals. These resolutions call on governments to issue stronger regulations on wireless radiation, especially cell phone radiation … (Part III: Why We Need Stronger Cell Phone Radiation Regulations–98 Scientific Experts Who Signed Resolutions”).

    With the exception of submissions from wireless industry corporations and associations, virtually all of the submissions to the FCC including those from various government agencies demand that the Federal government strengthen cell phone regulations to protect public health in the 21st century.

    … the wireless industry has lobbied to weaken the Federal cell phone radiation standards to correspond to those established by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), a self-appointed, non-profit organization consisting of 13 voting members.

    I have posted to my Electromagnetic Radiation Safety web site a list of key submissions to the FCC that reflect the industry position as well as the experts’ testimony (“Part I: Why We Need Stronger Cell Phone Radiation Regulations–Key Testimony Submitted to the FCC”)

    links to published research papers, monographs and reports on wireless radiation and health that can be downloaded from the FCC’s website (“Part II: Why We Need Stronger Cell Phone Radiation Regulations–Key Research Papers Submitted to the FCC”).
