Cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation are sources of Electromagnetic Radiation. Electromagnetic Radiation creates pollution sometimes referred to as “Electrosmog”. It’s NOT the EPA’s job to protect us from this. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is supposed to do that by regulating the telecom industry. Instead, they’ve been catering to the telecom industry for many years.
There have been lawsuits filed against The FCC for not protecting the public from exposure (see 1, 2) and forcing widespread 5G installation (see 1, 2, 3, 4) despite NO scientific evidence that it’s safe. American Academy of Pediatrics and other health experts have been warning for many years that children are more vulnerable to harm from exposure. In fact, there is still NO “safe” level of wireless radiation that has been scientifically determined for kids or pregnant women.
There is research – including from the American government – which has determined that exposure to cell phone and WiFi radiation is biologically harmful. Some of it has influenced scientists to change their cell phone habits. Thanks to Environmental Health Trust for reporting about this.
US Federal Agency: Scientists Reduce Cell Phone Radiation
NIH National Toxicology Program Scientists State They Reduce Cell Phone Radiation Exposure US Federal Agency Updates Their Webpage With New Information Summary: The National Toxicology Program of the National Institutes of Health Environmental Health Sciences has updated their webpage on cell phone radiation to state that their scientists reduce cell phone radiation exposure.In November 2019 the National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) National Toxicology Program (NTP) webpage on the 30 million dollar animal study on cell phone radiation was updated with new FAQs. One of the posted questions was about whether the scientists have changed their personal use of cell phones. When the webpage was first posted in 2019, this page stated that scientists were more aware of usage but “really haven’t changed their habits.”The lack of clarity of the 2019 NTP website statement prompted Theodora Scarato, Executive Director of Environmental Health Trust, to contact the NTP for clarification on January 7, 2010. Two days later, on January 10, 2020 the NTP updated their webpage to state that in fact yes, NTP scientists were reducing exposure to cell phone radiation by reducing overall time on cell phones and using speakerphone place a distance between their body and the phone.Note: She still has not received an answer to her emails. This is now the current text on NIH NTP website:Q: Have NTP scientists changed their cell phone use or what they recommend to their families? A: NTP scientists have become more aware of their usage and follow the FDA’s tips for reducing exposure to cell phone RFR:
- Reduce the amount of time spent using your cell phone, and
- Use the speaker mode or a headset to place more distance between your head and the cell phone.
