EMR - The Next Big Public Health Crisis
At Earthing Oz an important aspect of our mission is to add value through education.
As part of our mission, we are committed to raising public awareness of the dangers and increasing scientific evidence of the harmful biological effects of EMF (Electro Magnetic Fields) / EMR (Electro Magnetic Radiation).
History provides many examples of harmful, man-made ‘innovations’. After DDT, thalidomide, lead, tobacco and asbestos, Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) is the next big public health crisis.
As Donna Fisher quips in her excellent book, Silent Fields - The Growing Cancer Cluster Story:
There was 'something in the food', there was 'something in the water',
there was 'something in the cigarettes', and now there is 'something in the air'.
Erin Brockovich was about water in a small town.
Jeffrey Wigand was about smoking which people choose to do.
Donna Fisher, Earthing Oz and many others are about EMR which affects billions of people worldwide.
RED ALERT: Independent non-industry funded scientists are describing our over-exposure to EMR as the BIGGEST health crisis our planet and its inhabitants have ever faced.
Experts Appeal to the UN to Deal with the Emerging Public Health Crisis Posed by the Wireless Revolution
On 11th May 2015, over 190 scientists from 38 nations submitted an appeal to the United Nations, UN member states and the World Health Organization (WHO) requesting they adopt more protective exposure guidelines for electromagnetic fields (EMF) and wireless technology in the face of increasing evidence of risk. These exposures are a rapidly growing form of environmental pollution worldwide. The scientists who have signed the Appeal have collectively published over 2,000 peer-reviewed research papers on the biological or health effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation (EMR), part of the EMF spectrum that includes Extremely Low Frequency fields (ELF) used for electricity, or Radio Frequency Radiation (RFR) used for wireless communications.
Listen to Dr. Martin Blank's three minute video below announcing the Appeal. Dr Blank has had over 30 years of experience conducting EMF research at Columbia University and is past president of the International Bioelectromagnetics Society. In his own words, Dr. Blank gives a compelling explanation of the major health crisis we are now facing due to increasing levels of environmental pollution from growing and expanding EMF sources.
- address the emerging public health crisis related to cell phones, wireless devices, wireless utility meters and wireless infrastructure in neighborhoods; and
- urge that the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) initiate an assessment of alternatives to current exposure standards and practices that could substantially lower human exposures to non-ionizing radiation.
