Part 2: Experts Voice Their Views on Risks of EMFs

Top scientists from around the world share their concerns about EMF pollution and the potential health risks involved from exposure.

“Non-ionizing radiation (NIR) absorption by the population increased many times in the last few decades. The health effects of this will show a dramatic impact in the near future. Therefore effective precautionary procedures should urgently be adopted aiming to reduce NIR exposure and to reduce its health risks, in line with the IARC 2002 and 2011 recommendations that NIR is a possible human carcinogen”.

Alvaro Augusto de Salles, PhD., Professor, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul – UFRGS, Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil.

“Our studies show that exposure to electromagnetic fields with intensity lower than the ICNIRP exposure guidelines can produce biological effects. Thus, on a precautionary basis, before we understand the detailed mechanisms, we should adopt protective standards for the ubiquitous and increasing electromagnetic fields in occupational and public environments.”

Dr. Wenjun Sun, Director of Institute of Environmental Medicine, Bioelectromagnetics Key Laboratory, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, Hangzhou, China. 

“Our research finds that periodic, pulsed electromagnetic fields used for wireless communication reduce vegetative bioregulation activity.  Continued exposure to WiFi in Germany has deleterious effects on the cardiovascular system.  “We must reduce the spread and utilization of these systems.”

Lebrecht von Klitzing, PhD. Medical Physicist, Institute of Environmental Physics, DE 36466 Wiesenthal, Germany

“Wireless technology has driven most new high-tech products and has been a key factor in everyday domestic and commercial life. Still no serious efforts have been made by authorities to look seriously without bias at the health effects especially for heavy users, children, and pregnant women. Our research points out the necessity for precautionary measures and new safety limits given the complexity of the signals (with modulation and pulses) unlike any other radiation on earth.”

“The debate about the effect of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) on human health is a growing concern of the 21st century. On the basis of scientific evidence, there is no question that EMF emissions from several devices like cell phones, cellular antennas, and microwave ovens, have a causative effect on the brain and reproductive organs. “
