RadioFrequency (RF) radiation is also referred to as cell phone radiation, microwave radiation, and wireless radiation. No matter what you call it – research has determined it’s biologically and environmentally harmful. It can cause “Microwave Sickness” (also referred to as Electromagnetic Sensitivity) which is a medically recognized condition that seems to have affected American embassy workers in China and Cuba (see 1, 2).
In 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified RF as “possibly carcinogenic” and in the same category as chloroform, engine exhaust, and lead. American Academy of Pediatrics and other health experts have been warning for many years that children are more vulnerable to exposure. More research on RF has been released since 2011 and many scientists (including at the WHO) believe that this should be considered.
Thanks to Microwave News for providing more details:
The WHO has relaunched its call for three of the ten systematic reviews of RF–health impacts it originally sought last fall:
1) Cancer (animal studies)
2) Adverse reproductive outcomes (animal & in vitro studies)
3) Effect of exposure to heat from any source on pain, burns, cataract and heat-related illnesses.
These calls have been reopened because the WHO did not “receive proposals that fulfilled all the qualifications and skills required, and in particular sufficient experience and expertise in conducting systematic reviews,” Emilie van Deventer told Microwave News.
Proposals are due by February 7.
The WHO has apparently selected the teams for the other seven RF reviews. No word yet on who they are.
There is still no “safe” level of RF that has been scientifically determined for kids or pregnant women.
