Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing with information about an environmental toxin which is already causing health problems, shortening lives, and causing disability.
The environmental toxin is radiofrequency pollution.
From A.M. Best's February 14, 2013 Best's Briefing - "Emerging Technology-Based Risks"
According to the Department of Interior "the electromagnetic [radiofrequency] radiation standards used by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) continue to be based on thermal heating, a criterion now nearly 30 years out of date and inapplicable today." (http://www.saferemr.
In addition to being thermally-based and unenforced, the inadequate FCC radiofrequency radiation limits do not even address an important source of radiofrequency exposure - electrical pollution.
There are two sources of radiofrequency exposure. One is transmitted radiofrequency radiation from wireless technology. Exposures can come from personal devices, ambient sources such as antennas, WiFi, and other people's gadgets, and transmitting utility meters - also called smart meters, AMR meters, etc. I have included a series of video links below to get you a relatively quick overview of the problem. If you prefer reading material, here are a couple of links to strongly worded statements from medical professionals warning against having WiFi in schools http://wifiinschools.
Often the lack of known mechanism is cited as an objection to taking precautionary action. "Electromagnetic fields act via activation of voltage-gated calcium channels to produce beneficial or adverse effects(http://www.ncbi.nlm.
Right now sources of radiofrequency exposure are enjoying a great deal of popularity, however that does not make the danger any less, in fact it makes the societal harm much greater. Just as smoking was popular, use of asbestos was common, and lead paint was ubiquitous - things can change. Experts are calling for better safety standards (ones that actually protect against biological effects) -http://www.prlog.org/
More and more information is becoming available that highlights the dangers of radiofrequency exposure. The safety of radiofrequency radiation, utilized by all wireless devices, is seriously in question. Reputable scientists are calling for it to classified as a probable carcinogen http://www.
What can you do?
