Abstract

From Toxins to Towers: A Primer on the Science of Wireless Health Effects

EMF Biological and Health Effects

Wireless technology has become a dominant form of communication in our society, with human health exposure guidelines largely set by engineers looking at heat effects. Biological and health effects of electromagnetic frequencies have been reported at levels far below the safety thresholds in the scientific literature, however, and are under-recognized by the medical community. This talk will provide a brief overview of how non-ionizing radiation used in wireless devices can affect biological systems and thereby our health, highlighting some key research studies.
