What can we do about cancer-causing RF Radiation, following NTP study results?

What can we do? A major form of electrosmog pollution has been named a carcinogen by the National Toxicology Program, National Institute of Health, USA.

Electrosmog pollution in the form of cell phone radiation, is now officially associated with the development of cancer, according to  the results of a $25 million dollar National Toxicology Program (NTP) study released May 27th, 2016.  The Center for Electrosmog Prevention points out this type of non-ionizing radiation is the same as microwave radiofrequency (rf) radiation, the kind emitted by cell towers, wifi, smart utility meters, “smart” parking meters, home security systems, baby monitors, solar systems, wifi-enabled computers, and other wireless devices. Microwave rf radiation is harmful to living beings regardless of its source. In 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO) categorized non-ionizing (rf radiation) as a Class 2b Carcinogen (possible carcinogens),  along with DDT and other toxic substances. WHO scientists called for it to be on a higher list of known carcinogens but WHO appeared to cave in to pressure from industry, which seeks to portray it as safe. We must limit, not expand, public exposure to rf radiation. Current federal (FCC) guidelines for non-ionizing radiation are based on obsolete industry studies, allowing levels of non-ionizing radiation to be 3 million times higher than those recommended by independent scientists and experts.

An immediate moratorium must occur on expansion or building of more cell towers, installation of smart utility and parking meters, wifi in medical facilities and other public places, solar farms in residential areas, and marketing of rf radiation-emitting devices without prominent warning labels. Cell towers with close proximity to residential areas and commercial facilities must be eliminated. Safe, non-hazardous telephone landlines must be retained, and use of cell phones greatly reduced. Plans to expand any and all types of wireless communications and smart grid infrastructure must be halted.

Non-ionizing radiation has long been known to be hazardous to living beings, according to the findings of thousands of non-industry studies over the past six decades. Scientists and physicians concerned about these hazards have been ignored by the federal government, which has given its ear to the interests of telecommunications and utility companies, instead. As a result, the entire US population has been exposed to unsafe wireless devices and products, forced to endure exposure and illness resulting from public wifi, cell towers, and smart utility meters, and the extensive use of cell phones, impacting both the user and those with ”second-hand exposures”, to name but a few highly prevalent sources.

What can we do?

Individuals can take the following actions to reduce electrosmog pollution:

  • call your local utility to opt-out from their wireless smart utility meters (if it is wireless, opt-out)
  • stop using your cell phone except in emergencies and then, use on speaker phone or safer air-tube headsets
  • use corded landline phones at work and home (not cordless phones, which emit rf radiation equal to cell phones
  • use wired Internet access, not wifi, in schools, medical facilities, offices, and homes – available from local cable (fiber-optic) or telephone landline companies
  • switch the settings on your computers to wired Internet access (or it will still seek wifi)
  • do not use wireless devices in your home (eliminate wireless: home security systems, baby monitors, and other wireless devices)
  • disable blue tooth in your vehicle
  • stop using the microwave oven (emits microwave radiation throughout home even with properly working seals)
  • measure electrosmog pollution with a meter to accomplish safer levels where you live and work (example is Cornet Electrosmog ED88T Meter)
  • ask your neighbors to switch to wired electric meters and Internet (no smart meters or wifi)
  • contact your local school board and district officials to establish the policy of no use of cell phones, wifi, cell towers, or antennas on school district property
  • contact local businesses to request wired not wireless in public places
  • contact elected officials to educate them about the dangers of electrosmog pollution

Business owners can take the following steps to reduce electrosmog pollution

  • eliminate wifi from your place of business (switch to safer, more secure wired Internet access from your local cable or landline company)
  • provide all employees with corded landlines and establish company policy to use these except in emergency
  • do not allow cell towers on your property

Center for Electrosmog Prevention is a 501c3 nonprofit based in La Mesa, California, USA which seeks to reduce electrosmog pollution caused by electromagnetic radiation, including non-ionizing radiation and other sources of electromagnetic frequencies (EMF’s).

Study Results:

“Cell Phones

The National Toxicology Program has been conducting experiments in rats and mice on potential health hazards from cell phone radiofrequency radiation. NTP released a report on some important study findings on May 27, 2016.

Here are some key points about the cell phone study:

  1. The nomination for NTP to study cell phone radiofrequency radiation was made by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
  2. These are the largest, most complex studies ever conducted by NTP. The cost of the studies is $25 million.
  3. For the studies, rats and mice were exposed to frequencies and modulations currently used in cellular communications in the United States. The rodents were exposed for 10-minute on, 10-minute off increments, totaling just over 9 hours a day from before birth through 2 years of age.
  4. NTP found low incidences of tumors in the brains and hearts of male rats, but not in female rats. Studies in mice are continuing.
  5. NTP has provided these findings to its federal regulatory partners to enable them to have the latest information for public health guidance about safe ways to use cellular telephones and other radiofrequency radiation emitting devices.
  6. Likewise, NTP is providing the findings to the public. A report has been posted at http://dx.doi.org/10.1101/055699. The report is titled, “Report of Partial Findings From the National Toxicology Program Carcinogenesis Studies of Cell Phone Radiofrequency Radiation in Hsd: Sprague Dawley SD Rats (Whole Body Exposure).”
  7. The complete results from all the rat and mice studies will be available for peer review and public comment by the end of 2017.
  8. Previous human, observational data collected in earlier, large-scale population-based studies have found limited evidence of an increased risk for developing cancer from cell phone use.
  9. The FDA’s website provides a couple of steps people can take to minimize radiation exposure when using cell phones, including reducing the amount of time spent using a cell phone and using speaker mode or a headset to place more distance between one’s head and the cell phone. More information on cell phone safety is available on the FDA’s website.‎‎ ‎”
