Bulletin 56 FCC Office Of Engineering And Technology

This is an informative bulletin written as a result of increasing interest and concern of the public with respect to this issue. The expanding use of radiofrequency technology has resulted in speculation concerning the alleged "electromagnetic pollution" of the environment and the potential dangers of exposure to non-ionizing radiation. This publication is designed to provide factual information to the public by answering some of the most commonly asked questions such as What biological effects can be caused by radiation?, What are safe levels for exposure to radiofrequency/ microwave radiation?, How safe is the radiofrequency radiation emitted by radio and television broadcasting antennas? and much more. 38 pages, 1999.

Cell Towers:

Wireless Convenience? or Environmental Hazard?
Ed. by B. Blake Levitt

Cell Towers book

Cell towers and hidden "stealth" antennas are cropping up all over, despite vehement objections from community members. Health & safety questions arise, but are often dismissed by the very people entrusted to protect community welfare who have been told they cannot consider such questions. Those concerns have yet to be resolved, despite our increasing exposures. Cell Towers cuts through the rhetoric to address the complex issues of low-level RF. Some of the issues addressed:

  • Are the health concerns justified? What does the science really say?
  • What are the rolls of the lead government agencies: EPA and FCC?
  • Are the RF exposures standards reliable? are they current?
  • What are other countries doing?
  • What can communities do? What are good zoning regulations?

With chapters contributed by prominent research scientists, government officials, engineers, and attorneys, the book is the most comprehensive and balanced cell tower radiation information resource available for lay people today. 348 pages. 2001.

Promise of Electromagnetism, Perils of Electropollution
by Robert O. Becker

Crosscurrents Crosscurrents describes the meeting of two opposing trends: the rapid rise of electro-medicine, which promises to unlock the secrets of healing, and the parallel rise of electropollution, which poses a pressing environmental danger. At the same time that exciting insights into how to use the body's inherent healing abilities are gained, electromagnetic fields radiating from powerlines, radar, microwave ovens, VDT's, satellites, radios, and even electric blankets are attacking our bodies' resources. Crosscurrents offers practical ways to protect ourselves in our homes and offices from the hazardous effects of electromagnetic pollution, and teaches us how to engage the healing energies of electromagnetism. Endorsed by Paul Brodeur. 1990

NIST Construction Automation Program Report No. 3

NIST REport #3 Laboratory studies of electromagnetic (EM) signal propagation through construction materials were carried out as part of the NIST initiative. In this report, power attenuation aspects are discussed. The materials investigated included brick, masonry block, eight different concrete mixes, glass, plywood, lumber (spruce-pine-fir), drywall, reinforced concrete, steel reinforcing bar grids, variations of the plywood and lumber tests in which the specimens were soaked with water, and composite specimens involving brick-faced masonry block and brick-faced concrete. For each material, varying thickness specimens were fabricated in order to measure attenuation as a function of penetration distance. Measurements of power loss were taken at 2 MHz intervals from 0.5 to 2 GHz and from 3 to 8 GHz. Frequency power spectra were discretely generated for each material as a function of thickness. Excellent tables and graphical data. Extremely useful for predicting the shielding effectiveness of common building materials. 200 pages, 1997.

The Powerwatch Handbook Simple Ways To Make You And Your Family Safer
by Alasdair and Jean Philips

Are you keeping safe? Electrical wiring and appliances, overhead power lines, machinery, photocopiers, mobiles and cordless telephones, radio masts, TVs, tube trains, x-rays and laser beams are amongst the hundreds of everyday items that are now known to give off high levels of EMF. Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) can be biologically active and capable of making changes to the structure of human and animal cells which are exposed to them. Long-term exposure is believed by an increasing number of scientists and environmentalists to be connected to tumors, fertility problems, behavior and mood changes, concentration and memory loss, and also to affect melatonin production and impair our immune system repair mechanisms. The Powerwatch Handbook is a simple no-nonsense guide to EMFs and how to reduce their harmful effect. Here is practical information on:

  • How to test for EMFs in the home
  • Star ratings for different items and products
  • Simple ways to reduce your exposure to high level pollution
  • Reduce the effect of telephones, mobiles, TV masts and other outside sources
  • EMFs at work and in hospitals, dental surgeries and shops
  • How EMFs affect babies and young children
  • How to avoid becoming electrically sensitive
Information is presented in a practical, positive and lively way, in an easy-to-follow handbook style. EMF levels are graded using a star rating system, high level items are highlighted, and practical tips given in step-by-step, bullet point form. 256 pages, 2006

This 58-minute film is the first of its kind to explore the potential health risks and consequences of proliferating wireless devices and transmitting antennas (especially cell phones). The state of the science and needed public policy solutions are reviewed from an international citizen's rights and consumer advocacy perspective. This video talks about what the communications industry prefers not to discuss --- how exposure to radiation from wireless communications technology poses a major environmental health threat.

See footage of experts discussing the known biological threats posed by wireless radiation, sit in on public hearings (including pleas by Senator Tom Hayden of California) discussing the need for a rational policy on cell tower siting, and gain valuable ammunition to help you discuss this important issue intelligently with neighbors, town boards, school boards, anyone involved in tower siting and attorneys. Also a great teaching tool for students.

by Gerald Goldberg, MD

Warning Technology has transformed this planet into an open microwave system with its satellite transmissions. While the transmission of microwaved information can be handled in a safe and effective manner to provide for global communication without affecting the overall health of our planet, the health consequences from our current method of continuous low level exposure to microwave radiation can be catastrophic.

The book starts by examining dosimetry which shows which parts of the body are most sensitive to microwave radiation based on studies done by US Armed Forces. Dosimetry is also predictive of the pattern of injury that one would expect to find. The second chapter explains how microwave radiation produces disease. It examines the mechanisms of disease production in living systems. It also explains how microwave injury manifests as specific organ dysfunction, be it neurological, behavioral, immune, cancer etc. The third demonstrates through the use of graphs that the parallel and symmetrical rise of certain illnesses across broad geographic areas suggests a common force acting equally on all these regions. The graphs also demonstrate that it is the rate of increase not the absolute number of cases in a given region that is important. Examines the common link between microwave radiation and seemingly unrelated illnesses.

Presented in a clear language that the laymen can understand. Liberally referenced from the scientific literature. The book is designed to be generally informative as well as a reference source for the average reader. Even provides a wealth of resources that have been shown to be beneficial to offset the consequences of excess microwave exposure. 2006
