International Scientists Appeal to U.N. to Protect Humans and Wildlife from Electromagnetic / Radio Frequency Fields and Wireless Technology.

New York, NY, May 11, 2015. 190 scientists from 39 nations submitted an appeal to the United Nations, UN member states and the World Health Organization (WHO) requesting they adopt more protective exposure guidelines for electromagnetic fields (EMF) and wireless technology in the face of increasing evidence of risk. These exposures are a rapidly growing form of environmental pollution worldwide. The “International EMF Scientist Appeal” asks the Secretary General and UN affiliated bodies to encourage precautionary measures, to limit EMF exposures, and to educate the public about health risks, particularly to children and pregnant women.

Martin Blank, PhD of Columbia University representing 190 international scientists in the Appeal highlights the risks of electromagnetic fields emitted by telecommunications and utility technologies. Cautioning strongly, Dr. Blank says, “The time to deal with the harmful biological and health effects is long overdue. To protect our children, ourselves and our ecosystem, we must reduce exposure by establishing more protective guidelines.” Dr. Blank’s video is produced by on behalf of international scientists and the Appeal Committee.
