MAJOR REPORT ON THE EFFECTS OF EMF RADIATION AND RECOMMENDATIONSTO REDUCE EXPOSURE
This is the most comprehensive discussion on the subject we've found yet.
A major new report on EMF (electromagnetic fields), the BioInitiative Report, has been produced and published by David Carpenter and Cindy Sage. Lou Slesin, editor of the authoritative Microwave News website, greeted it this way: August 29... An international group of researchers has thrown down the gauntlet. The BioInitiative Working Group is challenging the EMF power structure to set much stricter exposure standards for power lines, cell phones, cell towers and other sources of electromagnetic radiation. "'Business as usual' is unacceptable," says David Carpenter, the director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at New York's University of Albany, on releasing the working group's extensive report. Its general conclusion is that there are many biological effects at levels that are well below current standards and that the "existing safety limits are inadequate to protect public health." Carpenter and Cindy Sage, a consultant based in Santa Barbara, California, coordinated the BioInitiative group and edited the report.
BioInitiative Report from the University of Albany, New York
"A Rationale for a Biologically-based Public Exposure Standard for Electromagnetic Fields (ELF and RF)"
Twenty scientists and researchers from around the world reviewed over 2,000 studies on EMFs. They found a link between EMFs, cancer and other health problems.
From their August 31, 2007 press release:
"An international working group of scientists, researchers and public health policy professionals (The BioInitiative Working Group) has released its report on electromagnetic fields (EMF) and health. They document serious scientific concerns about current limits regulating how much EMF is allowable from power lines, cell phones, and many other sources of EMF exposure in daily life.
"The report concludes the existing standards for public safety are inadequate to protect public health."
Among the group's key recommendations are:
a 1mG limit for homes where children and/or pregnant women live;
a "precautionary limit" of 0.1μW/cm² (0.6V/m) for RF exposures where "people live, work and go to school."
These proposed levels are on the order of 1,000 times more stringent than current limits adopted by ICNIRP (International Commission on Non- Ionizing Radiation Protection) and the IEEE's ICES (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers' International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety). All 21 sections of the report are available as free downloads from the BioInitiative website at www.bioinitiative.org. Michael Lerner, Founding Partner
Note: Many experts in the US are still on the fence, waiting for all the statistics to prove the dangers beyond a shadow of a doubt. We've been there before with smoking and other issues. Don't wait to be a statistic, protect yourself now.

“I seem to have weathered a 10-hour time change with a minimum of jet lag in both directions. While I am getting a lot less sleep per night, my energy has not flagged. My thinking is clear, and calm, not irritable. During the last 2 months I have been closely exposed to many people who have had colds and flu. In spite of being extremely busy, in spite of having taken a grueling trip to Israel and back, and in spite of having to endure a difficult and stressful home life, I have not had one day of illness since wearing the Shield. I am flabbergasted!”
