Regulation of electronic technologies has not kept up with deployments. As a result, several segments of the population are exposed to dangerous levels of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) and screen-time. This email outlines:

1. How EMR and/or screen-time exposures currently affect four segments of the US population;

2. Policies that would make areas of public accommodation more accessible to these populations; and

How EMR and/or screen-time exposure currently affects four segments of the US population: people with medical implants, children, workers and people who are electro-hypersensitive (EHS).

a. People with medical implants

According to NIH, in 2000, 8-10% of the US population had a medical implant--i.e. a cardiac pacemaker, insulin pump, cochlear implant, deep-brain stimulator (DBS) (for Parkinson's, PTSD or other neurological disorder), etc.

Exposure to EMR emitted by common electronics can cause "electromagnetic interference" (EMI) with a medical implant, resulting in the implant's being reprogrammed or shut off.

Neither patients nor physicians are well informed about the situation.

Implant patients may find their implant malfunctioning and/or shutting off if they:
