Americans aren't aware of the dangers of electromagnetic radiation. We're endangering ourselves from TVs, cellular phones, neon lights, electric light bulbs...It didn't have to be this way.

The Car Talk Brothers, Tom and Ray Magliozzi

Because of a technical glitch, Inter-Occupy's Sandi Fields' introduction to this teleconference did not record entirely, neither did Katie Singer's. Here's the text of Katie Singer's introduction, followed by the recording:

The FCC formed in 1934 and began encouraging people to develop and market new electronics--as long as they did not create "harmful interference." The FCC defined harmful interference as anything that interferes with existing radio, TV and now cellular and Internet broadcasts. The FCC's definition has never included biological harm--harm to human health or wildlife.

If we're inside of a car and not wanting exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR), some cars may be safer than others. How do we determine which cars are safer? Early cars had some electronics. In the 1980s, some cars started using computers.

I admit that I know very little about how cars work. This may be because I didn't come from Gary Olhoeft's family. Sometime in the mid 1920s, when Gary's father wanted a car, Gary's grandfather said, "Sure. But before you drive it, you've got to take it apart and put it back together."

I'm hoping we can do a little of this today. My guests are Dr. Gary Olhoeft, an electrical engineer and geophysicist. He's professor emeritus at the Colorado School of Mines. We're also joined by Dr. Bill Bruno, a biophysicist who worked at the Los Alamos National Lab for 20 years and now does research at the New Mexico Consortium.
