The FCC protects industry – not people!

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is NOT a health protection organization. The FCC is a corporation listed on Dun and Bradstreet (like ALL the so-called ‘government agencies’) and is headquartered in WASHINGTON DC. The employees of the FCC DO NOT work for the American people!!!! Their job is NOT to protect Americans from harmful Smart Meters and/or other wireless technology. The job of the FCC is to give cover (plausible deniability) and credibility to the wireless industry and protect them from lawsuits.

The following, directly from the FCC website, is a good example of ‘word crafting’ aka propaganda. Spin words and phrases are used ad nauseum. However, the first sentence tells it all.

Current Exposure Limits from the FCC web site:
“While there is no federally developed national standard for safe levels of exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy, many federal agencies have addressed this important issue. In addition to the Federal Communications Commission, federal health and safety agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have been actively involved in monitoring and investigating issues related to RF exposure. For example, the FDA has issued guidelines for safe RF emission levels from microwave ovens, and it continues to monitor exposure issues related to the use of certain RF devices such as cellular telephones. NIOSH conducts investigations and health hazard assessments related to occupational RF exposure.” Continue reading

BioInitiative 2012 exposes the dangers of EMF

A RATIONALE FOR BIOLOGICALLY-BASED EXPOSURE STANDARDS FOR LOW-INTENSITY ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION

The BioInitiative 2012 Report was prepared by 29 authors from ten countries, ten holding medical degrees (MDs), 21 PhDs, and three MsC, MA or MPHs. Among the authors were three former presidents of the Bioelectromagnetics Society, and five full members of BEMS. One distinguiished author was the Chair of the Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation. Another is a Senior Advisor to the European Environmental Agency.

PUBLICATION DATE: December 31, 2012

WHAT IS IT: A report by 29 independent scientists and health experts from around the world about possible risks from wireless technologies and electromagnetic fields. It updates the BioInitiative 2007 Report.

WHAT IT COVERS: The science, public health, public policy and global response to the growing health issue of chronic exposure to electromagnetic fields and radiofrequency radiation in the daily life of billions of people around the world. Covers brain tumor risks from cell phones, damage to DNA and genes, effects on memory, learning, behavior, attention, sleep disruption and cancer and neurological diseases like Alzheimers. Effects on sperm and miscarriage (fertility and reproduction), effects of wireless on the brain development of the fetus and infant, and effects of wireless classrooms on children and adolescents is addressed. Mechanisms for biological action and public health responses in other countries are discussed. Therapeutic use of very low intensity EMF and RFR are addressed.

WHAT IS NEW: This update covers about 1800 new studies reporting bioeffects and adverse health effect of electromagnetic fields (power lines, electrical wiring, appliances and hand-held devices) – and wireless technologies (cell and cordless phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi, wireless laptops, wireless routers, baby monitors, surveillance systems, wireless utility meters (smart meters), etc.
