This summary is an expanded section of a larger document entitled "Electromagnetic Health for Children".
The full document is designed in response to requests for information detailing current health concerns of
electromagnetic fields (EMFs) with a focus on radiofrequency (RF) radiation. This is an expanded subsection
covering EHS only.
We are currently witnessing the largest change to the Earth's electromagnetic environment that has ever
taken place in human history.
This change has taken place in the very short period of a handful of decades
and continues to escalate at an exponential rate (Appendix 1). Given that household electricity, which was
the first anthropogenic (man-made) electromagnetic field (EMF), only became prolific after the turn of the
century, artificial EMF has barely seen one generation from cradle to grave. The use of higher frequency
microwave devices such as mobile telephony, Wi-fi and smart meters, have suddenly become commonplace
despite almost no safety testing and decades of evidence of potentially lethal effects.
This has sparked a
political and scientific debate that is gathering momentum on a daily basis, raising concern about the
continued use of such devices. One may assume when witnessing the vast implementation of, for example
Wi-fi in the home, school, workplace or public domain, that experts have provided sufficient evidence of
safety to overwhelm scientific concern. This is not the case.
