Commonly Cited Parallels to the Hazards of
Wireless Telecommunications Infrastructure


  • Asbestos, Knob-and-tube wiring, Leaded gas, DDT, Glyphosate, Smoking & Driving

  • We desperately need speed limits, seatbelts and airbags"-like regulations for . . . Close Proximity

Electromagnetic Spectrum

Natural Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) and . . .

RF-EMR = unnatural, manmade, xenobiotic, pulsed, data-modulated,
Radio-Frequency Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation exposures

Natural EMF

  • All life adapted to regular, smooth waves

  • Gamma Waves: filtered out by atmosphere

  • Schumann Waves: Earth's pulse @ 7.83 Hz

  • Sun: visible light at 430,000,000–750,000,000 MHz (plus Infrared and Ultraviolet)

Atmospheric Absorption of Electromagnetic Waves

Unlike the two slides ago, the higher frequencies are to the left

Unnatural EMF

  • For 125 years, man introduced unnatural, irregular, choppy, pulsed waves at ever-increasing levels

  • Radio/Television: analog signals through the air

  • Early Telecom: digital, pulsed signals through wires

  • Telecom Now: digital, pulsed signals through the air

Digital, Pulsed Waves are Toxic Hazards

  • Our cells understand smooth,
    analog waves
    in naturally-occurring
    frequencies: the earth's magnetic field
    and the sun's IR/Visible/UV light

  • Our cells don't understand modulated,
    choppy, pulsed, data-carrying waves
    unnaturally-occurring frequencies:
    i.e. always-on 3G/4G/5G & Wi-Fi frequencies


One simple equation: c = f × λ

  • c = 300,000,000 meters/sec = 671,000,000 miles/hr

  • f = Frequency: repetitions per second (Hz)

  • λ = Wavelength: distance between peaks of a wave

RF-EMR is Electrical Power Sprayed Through the Air

  • The power density of RF-EMR falls off by the square of the distance
  • Each line represents a spray of pulses (bullets) — thousands per second

What was the "Behavioral Disruption?"

  • Rats and Monkeys were irradiated with RF-EMR exposures at higher and higher doses, until . . .

  • The lab animals became unresponsive: they could no longer seek and eat their food

  • After the animals were this significantly maimed, the scientists then . . .

  • Stuck a thermometer up their butts and measured the animals' core body temperature.

The truth: Lots of disruption of biology happens on the way to heating: cell membranes leak, proteins vibrate/distort, leading to all kinds of errors.

RF-EMR Exposures Are Xenobiotic

Xenobiotics are synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and
industrial pollutants that are not found in nature.

  • All living things evolved with Earth's Schumann Resonance (7.83 Hz) and IR/Visible/UV Light

  • We have NO natural defenses against xenobiotic RF-EMR exposures

  • Our tissues, cell membranes and DNA are antennas for RF-EMR

  • Simple blood tests pre- and post-exposure to RF-EMR show immediate adverse effects

DNA Acts as an Antenna

How much RF-EMR can we withstand?

Not 10,000,000 µW/m² . . . forever . . . as the FCC opines, but . . .

No Hazard Slight Hazard Severe Hazard Extreme Hazard
< 0.1 µW/m² 0.1 to 10 µW/m² 10 to 1,000 µW/m² > 1,000 µW/m²
Sources: Bionitiative & Building-Biology Institute
  • µW/m² = millionths of a Watt per square meter

  • Power Flux Density (PFD) = electrical power that flows through a square area

  • PFD measures only the rate of electrical power, NOT the total electrical power delivered

  • Must multiply rate × time of exposure → as µW-seconds/m² or µJoules/m²

  • The FCC RF-EMR exposure guidelines are not based on the time of exposure, which is scientifically unsound, as explained here: RF Microwave Radiation Counter

Total Power = Rate × Time

  • You don't pay for just Watts (a rate of power)
  • You pay for kiloWatt-hours (rate × the time you use it)

Total Power Poison = Rate × Time

Modulation: pulsed data, packed onto carrier waves

  • Power Flux Density = µW/m² or microWatts per square meter

    • RF-EMR-Scale = 1 µW/m² = 10−6 = 0.000001 Watts

    • Human Cell-Scale = 50 milli-electron-Volts = 8 × 10−21 = 0.000000000000000000008 Watt-Seconds (i.e. Joules)

    • FCC Guideline-Scale = 10,000,000 µW/m² = 101 = 10 Watts

  • This difference is 22 orders of magnitude vs. Human Cell-Scale

  • Inexplicably, the FCC and the Wireless Industry considers only heating power, which is a rate of power and NOT the Total RF-EMR exposure over time.

Problems with Wireless Radiation & Kids

Children absorb twice as much RF/MW Radiation as do adults.

The American Academy of Pediatrics states "Current FCC [RF-EMR] standards do not account for the unique vulnerability and use patterns specific to pregnant women and children. It is essential that any new standard for cell phones or other wireless devices be based on protecting the youngest and most vulnerable populations to ensure they are safeguarded throughout their lifetimes."
  • Children's skulls and bones are thinner
  • Children's brains and bodies have higher water content
  • Children's cells are dividing and differentiating faster

US Govt. Agencies Knew All Along

The Environnmental Protection Agency Knew There Were RF Radiation Hazards
"This . . . should not be overlooked . . . impact by wireless communications technology on a child's educational process, i.e. by affecting learning ability. [It] stems from recent studies involving short-term exposures that demonstrated subtle effects on brain functions, produced by low-intensity, pulse-modulated radiofrequency radiation . . . even a slight degree of impairment of learning ability over years of exposure . . . may negatively affect the quality of life that could be achieved by these individuals when adults.""
Quote from Norbert Hankin, PhD, Envioronmental Scientist, EPA, 1994

"The FCC’s exposure standards are seriously flawed. FCC rules do not address the issues of long-term, chronic exposure to radiofrequency radiation."
Quote from FCC Docket ET 93-62, November 9, 1993.

1968 Public Health Service Act 90-602

1969 National Environmental Protection Act 91-190

U.S. Code § 4321: Purpose: "to declare a national policy which will encourage productive and enjoyable harmony between man and his environment; to promote efforts which will prevent or eliminate damage to the environment and biosphere and stimulate the health and welfare of man; to enrich the understanding of the ecological systems and natural resources important to the Nation; and to establish a Council on Environmental Quality."

8/9/19 DC Circuit Ruling That Vacated FCC 18-30

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit unanimously vacated the FCC order that would have exempted 800,000 Close Proximity Microwave Radiation Antennas (CPMRAs) from environmental review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and mandated that an Environmental Assessment for the full program be completed.

DC Circuit: "We hold that the Order’s deregulation of small cells is arbitrary and capricious because its public-interest analysis did not meet the standard of reasoned decisionmaking . . . The scale of the deployment the FCC seeks to facilitate, particularly given its exemption of small cells that require new construction, makes it impossible on this record to credit the claim that small cell deregulation will ‘leave little to no environmental footprint . . . The Commission also failed to assess . . . the cumulative harms from densification."

10/1/19 DC Circuit Ruled &Vacated parts of FCC 17-166

FCC Commissioner Rosenworcel: "Today’s court decision vacates the FCC’s unlawful effort to block states and localities from protecting an open internet for their citizens. From small towns to big cities, from state houses to governors’ executive actions, states and localities have been stepping in because the FCC shirked its duties. In addition, the court took the agency to task for disregarding its duty to consider how its decision threatens public safety, Lifeline service, and broadband infrastructure."

FCC RF-EMR Exposure Guideline is Not Protective

"Although we are congressionally chartered we are not government funded and must rely on contracts, grants, and the sale of publications to fund our work. We have not updated our radiofrequency radiation (RF-EMR) effects reports [since 1986] because of the lack of funding."
2013 Quote from James Cassata, National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP) Executive Director

We Can No Longer Pretend

. . . The Emperor (FCC's RF-EMR Maximum Permissible Exposure Guideline) Has No Clothes.

SAR Lacks Scientific Reliability

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is only a very crude guesstimate

  • SAR is based on average power, not peak power

  • SAR does not consider effects of the spikes in pulsed signals

  • SAR is based on heating of a gel in a plastic, adult-sized Standard Anthropomorphic Mannequin head — all current SAR ratings would fail if conducted on child-sized SAM heads

SAR is Meaningless

Why We Need to Look Beyond SAR

  • SAR is not a relevant measure: it provides an overly-simplistic model that does not model the complex operations of biologic organisms.

  • SAR is a misnomer: it is literally a "rate" of power delivery, averaged over a mass of tissue (kg). It does not calculate total power delivered over time. The very units of SAR evidence its nonsense.

  • SAR is unreliable: it is the many discrete, erratic spikes of power from wireless signals which affects our cells, not whether or not the spikes of power might heat up some gel in a SAM head.

"So, what's the message from all of this? We tested the hypothesis that [radio-frequency] radiation could not cause health effects and we feel that that hypothesis has now been disproved because these results clearly show that that [radio-frequency] radiation (RF-EMR) can cause adverse health effects. . ."

". . . The finding of increases of [cancers] in rats exposed to the RF-EMR provides consistency with the epidemiological reports of increases of gliomas and acoustic neuromas, which are tumors of Shwann cells among humans exposed to RF-EMR. Those were the findings that provided the basis for the [May 2011] International Agency for Research on Cancer evaluation, because the same cells that became cancerous in rats are the cells that have been reported to develop into tumors in [human] epidemiological studies . . ."

". . . The incidence of tumors is not the measurement of risk alone. Risk is determined from both the dosimetry, which is the absorbed power [multiplied by] time [of exposure], versus the tumor response . . . because of the large number of [exposed human] users worldwide, even a small increase in risk at exposure propensities that may be close to what humans experience, could result in a large number of people developing a RF-radiation-induced tumor with long-term exposure."

The American Cancer Society Concurs

"This [5/27/16] report from the National Toxicology Program (NTP) is good science. The NTP report linking radiofrequency radiation (RF-EMR) to two types of cancer marks a paradigm shift in our understanding of [wireless] radiation and cancer risk. The findings are unexpected; we wouldn't reasonably expect non-ionizing RF-EMR to cause these tumors: [Gliomas and Schwannomas] . . . "
Quote from Otis W. Brawley, MD, Chief Medical Officer, American Cancer Society,
regarding the NTP Carcinogenesis Studies of Radiofrequency Radiation

The American Cancer Society Concurs

". . . This is a striking example of why serious study is so important in evaluating cancer risk. It's interesting to note that early studies on the link between lung cancer and smoking had similar resistance, since theoretical arguments at the time suggested that there could not be a link . . . "
Quote from Otis W. Brawley, MD, Chief Medical Officer, American Cancer Society,
regarding the NTP Carcinogenesis Studies of Radiofrequency Radiation

The American Cancer Society Concurs

" . . . the association with gliomas and acoustic neuromas had been suspected from human epidemiology studies. The second cancer, called a schwannoma, is an extremely rare tumor in humans and animals, reducing the possibility that this is a chance finding . . . importantly, the study found a 'dose/response' effect: the higher the dose, the larger the effect, [which is] a key sign"
