Bioinitiative Report 2007
The BioInitiative Report 2007 is one of the most important joint reports on EMF affects on health, and on the inadequacy of present safety standards. This report has been written by an international group of scientists, researchers and public health policy professionals to document the scientific evidence on electromagnetic fields. This comprehensive report is the current prime document for evidence-based legislation related to tightened health and safety regulations. www.bioInitiative.org
“The evidence for risks from prolonged cell phone and cordless phone use is quite strong when you look at people who have used these devices for 10 years or longer, and when they are used mainly on one side of the head. Recent studies that do not report increased risk of brain tumors and acoustic neuromas have not looked at heavy users, use over ten years or longer, and do not look at the part of the brain which would reasonably have exposure to produce a tumor.”
Lennart Hardell, MD, PhD Professor at University Hospital, Orebro, Sweden.
World-renowned expert on the safety of wireless, radiofrequency and microwave radiation.
“Cells in the body react to EMFs as potentially harmful, just like to other environmental toxins, including heavy metals and toxic chemicals. The DNA in living cells recognizes electromagnetic fields at very low levels of exposure; and produces a biochemical stress response. The scientific evidence tells us that our safety standards are inadequate, and that we must protect ourselves from exposure to EMF due to power lines, cell phones and the like, or risk the known consequences. The science is very strong and we should sit up and pay attention.”
Martin Blank, PhD Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons
“The basics of life are becoming increasingly inaccessible to a growing percentage of the world’s population. I strongly advise all governments to take the issue of electromagnetic health hazards seriously and to take action while there is still time.
Olle Johansson, Ph.D. Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden
“Based on the existing science, many public health experts believe it is possible we will face an epidemic of cancers in the future resulting from uncontrolled use of cell phones and increased population exposure to WiFi and other wireless devices.”
David Carpenter, MD Director, Institute for Health and the Environment, School of Public Health, University of Albany
“Electromagnetic radiation is a very serious human and environmental health issue that needs immediate attention by Congress. The BioInitiative Report is a major milestone in understanding the health risks from wireless technology.”
