www.bioinitiative.org "The BioInitiative Report is a major milestone in understanding the health risks from wireless technology. Every responsible elected official owes it to his or her constituents to learn and act on its findings and policy recommendations." - Whitney North Seymour, Jr. Former New York State Senator & Former United States Attorney, SDNY; Co-Founder, Natural Resources Defense Council An international working group of scientists, researchers and public health policy professionals (The BioInitiative Working Group) has raised serious health concerns about the adequacy of existing public limits that regulate how much EMF is allowable from power lines, cell phones, and many other sources of EMF exposure in daily life .
The Report documents increased EMF health risks for childhood leukemia, and for adult cancers and neurological diseases including breast cancer and Alzheimerís disease. EMF exposure is likely responsible for hundreds of new cases of childhood leukemia every year.
There is sufficient scientific evidence now to set new public safety limits for power line EMF at levels nearly a thousand times lower than currently exist. Action is warranted to avoid exposures to cell and cordless phones that are linked to brain tumors and acoustic neuromas.
Even wireless exposures at everyday levels have been linked to many kinds of health impacts and sleep disruption. These findings are particularly important for children, as children are generally more sensitive to damage from environmental toxins.
