On August 13, 2021, the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled in favor of Children’s Health Defense, Environmental Health Trust and Consumers For Safe Cellphones in their court cases against the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) challenging the FCC’s decision not to review its antiquated 1996 wireless radiation health and safety guidelines.
Current “Safety” Guidelines Do Not Keep Americans Safe
For many years, scientists believed that the only possible result of exposure to wireless radiation was heat. In fact, the standard used by the U.S. government to set allowable limits of exposure is still based only on thermal (heat) effects which boils down to how much radiation it would take to heat the skin. The limits are very high and they do not address the much lower non-thermal impacts that come with chronic use of today’s wireless devices. Science has since proven there are many harmful non-thermal biological effects.
There are now thousands of independent, peer-reviewed and published scientific studies from around the world showing adverse biological effects such as increased cancers in children and adults, DNA damage, infertility and miscarriage, headaches, tinnitus, heart irregularities, endocrine (hormonal) effects, adverse impacts on immunity, lack of concentration, memory and cognitive impairment, behavioral problems, insomnia, fatigue, nosebleeds, nausea, dizziness, anxiety/depression, suicidal ideation, interference with medical devices such as pacemakers, electromagnetic sensitivity (a/k/a microwave sickness, radio-frequency sickness) and more from exposure to wireless radiation, even at levels considered “safe” by the U.S. government.
Important Press Releases About the Victory
“The court’s decision exposes the FCC and FDA as captive agencies that have abandoned their duty to protect public health in favor of a single-minded crusade to increase telecom industry profits.” –Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Attorney and Chairman of Children’s Health Defense
“If cell phones were a drug they would have been banned years ago. 5G would never have been allowed to market. An ever mounting body of published studies — ignored by the FCC — clearly indicates that exposure to wireless radiation can lead to numerous health effects, especially for children. Research indicates wireless radiation increases cancer risk, damages memory, alters brain development, impacts reproductive health, and much more. Furthermore, the way the FCC measures our daily exposure to cell phone and cell tower radiation is fatally flawed and provides a false sense of security.” –Dr. Devra Davis, President Environmental Health Trust
