Current “safety” standards in North America leave a lot to be desired. We are all being exposed to unsafe levels of wireless radiation and there’s no sign of this changing anytime soon, despite the efforts of scientists and doctors who are urging more health protective policies and regulations.
There are adverse health effects that are not being reported or widely discussed in the medical field, except by a few researchers and doctors who have put the pieces of the puzzle together.
Some educational materials have been designed for health professionals

Learning About the Health Effects of Wireless Technology
It’s up to us to inform ourselves and take whatever precautions we can. Here are tips for actions you can take and sources for more information.
These tips are good for everyone, not just those who are expecting:

There are so many other resources available for science geeks, and if you follow some of the above links, you will find many of them. There are far too many to list here, but the 5 and 10 steps to reduce exposures are simple enough things everyone can and should do.
We run into problems if we want or need to completely eliminate exposures. There are currently no laws to prevent wireless trespass, so wireless signals from outside sources can and do come through our walls, into the privacy of our own homes. For the people who are completely disabled by wireless radiation (sometimes called Microwave Sickness, or EHS), there is often no safe place to go unless one has access to resources many of us do not have access to, and man-made frequency-free places are few and far between (cell towers and “smart” meters are almost everywhere now).
We have an urgent medical and disability related accessibility need for areas that have no wireless radiation, dirty electricity, or other sources of high electrical and radio frequency fields, just like we need areas without toxic chemical use for those with MCS/ES (there is some overlap here too, as Dr Rae from the Environmental Health Center in Dallas, and the doctors at Women’s College Hospital’s Environmental Health Clinic have discovered and are teaching).
We are witnessing the same thing with wireless standards that has happened with tobacco, toxic chemicals, asbestos, lead, GMOs, and many other harmful substances. Industries (usually quite profitable even without the taxpayer subsidies they receive) have polluted our air, water, food and bodies with unnatural substances that are now causing epidemics of disease and disability. We need to rewrite the laws of our countries to ensure we all have the right to a healthy environment (check out the Blue Dot Tour). Until that happens, we need to do everything in our power to protect ourselves, each other, and future generations. The alternatives are literally to die for. Let’s choose life!
Pingback: MCS/ES Symptoms | Seriously "Sensitive" to Pollution
EUROPAEM EMF Guideline 2016 for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of EMF-related health problems and illnesses
“Chronic diseases and illnesses associated with non-specific symptoms are on the rise. In addition to chronic stress in social and work environments, physical and chemical exposures at home, at work, and during leisure activities are causal or contributing environmental stressors that deserve attention by the general practitioner as well as by all other members of the health care community. It seems necessary now to take “new exposures” like electromagnetic fields (EMF) into account.
Physicians are increasingly confronted with health problems from unidentified causes. Studies, empirical observations, and patient reports clearly indicate interactions between EMF exposure and health problems. Individual susceptibility and environmental factors are frequently neglected. New wireless technologies and applications have been introduced without any certainty about their health effects, raising new challenges for medicine and society.” …

thank you for your site Linda, are you by any chance in MA? We are trying to pass a smart meter opt out bill here now tp help protect the ES population…. (n 2017)
Hi Patricia, I’m in Ontario!
Thanks for doing what you are doing! The s-meters are really bad news.
A Clinical Approach to Electrohypersensitivty from Physicians for Safe Technology
from Environmental Health Trust
Electromagnetic Sensitivity also known as Microwave Sickness
“With the epidemiological studies of humans over many years and the recent findings of the US National Toxicological Program and Ramazzini Institute animal studies, we now have enough evidence to classify radiofrequency radiation as carcinogenic to humans,” says Dr. Anthony Miller, lead author of the review and professor emeritus, Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto. Miller is also a former Senior Epidemiologist for IARC and former Director of Epidemiology for the National Cancer Institute of Canada.”
Electrical Hypersensitivity and the Social Model of Disability
David Fancy PHD
“The most common way of thinking about EHS is that it is a medical disability. Understanding EHS in these terms means understanding the specific physiological pathways that cause what is generally understood to be a ‘pathological’ condition. Although this kind of understanding is necessary and useful, there are other important ways of conceiving of EHS. What if we were to flip the script? What if we understood the disability to be the result of the inaccessibility of the spaces that EHS people find themselves in, instead of a limitation or sickness of the EHS person? Drawing from insights from the ‘social model of disability’ this presentation identifies how the current cultural moment presents systematic barriers, negative attitudes and ongoing electromagnetic wounding that puts the responsibility on society for being the main contributing factor in disabling EHS persons.”

Siting cell towers needs careful planning

Summary: The health impacts of radio-frequency radiation (RFR) are still inconclusive, but the data to date warrants more caution in placing cell towers. An engineering team considers the current understanding of health impacts and possible solutions, which indicate a 500-meter (one third of a mile) buffer around schools and hospitals may help reduce risk for vulnerable populations.
