The Federal safety standards for wireless communications were designed to protect humans from the heating, or thermal, risks caused by exposure to microwave radiation. However, thousands of peer-reviewed studies have found bio-effects from exposure to low intensity, non-thermal levels of microwave radiation. Moreover, three independent, case-control studies have found a two-fold increased risk of brain cancer among adults who have used cell phones for ten or more years. And one study found a three-fold risk of brain cancer after 25 years of cell phone and cordless phone use.
An April 1981 NASA study, titled "Electromagnetic Field Interactions with the Human Body: Observed Effects and Theories," was clear about the damage that EMF radiation caused to humans....adverse effects from EMF radiation, the report states, "Some result in death and persistent disease," with other impacts being "ventricular fibrillation and sudden infant death syndrome," "cataracts," "accelerated aging," and that electromagnetic fields "may promote cancer...." The Navy's own 1971 paper lists well over 100 negative biological effects caused by microwave and radio frequency radiations, a partial list: corneal damage, tubular degeneration of testicles, brain heating, alteration of the diameter of blood vessels, liver enlargement, sterility, altered fetal development, decreased lactation in nursing mothers, altered penal function, death, cranial nerve disorders, seizures, convulsions, depression, insomnia, hand tremors, chest pain, thrombosis, alteration in the rate of cellular division, anorexia, chromosome aberrations, tumors, altered orientation of animals, birds and fish, loss of hair, and sparking between dental fillings.

The study established a direct link between cancer deaths in Belo Horizonte, the third largest city, with the antennae of the mobile telephone network, reported in Science Hoje site, the news portal of the Brazilian Society for Progress Science (Sociedad Brasileña para el Progreso de la Ciencia.) According to the study, more than 81 percent of people who die in Belo Horizonte by specific types of cancer live less than 500 meters away from the 300 identified cell phone antennas in the city. Scientists found between 1996 and 2006 in Belo Horizonte, a total of 4924 victims within 500 meters and 7191 within 1000 meters died of cancer types that may be caused by electromagnetic radiation, such as tumors in the prostate, breast, lung, kidneys and liver.
Busting the myths about lack of evidence on harm caused by cellphone radiation, Finnish scientist Dariusz Leszczynski on Friday said that long-term exposure to cellphone and cell tower radiation, on an average of thirty minutes a day over ten years, causes an increased risk of brain cancer.
This is consistent with the increasing use of cordless phones as well as cell phones by the population. Hardell's case-control research on mobile phone use and brain cancer suggests that cordless phone use may be as harmful as cell phone use, and that tumors are more likely to occur in the frontal and temporal lobes than in other parts of the brain.
"Sustained exposure to ultraviolet light wavelengths from CFLs increases the risk of two seriously debilitating eye conditions, macular degeneration and cataracts," the professor claims.
El grupo municipal de EU-IU en el Concello de Ferrol presentará en la sesión plenaria de este jueves una moción en contra del Proyecto de Ley General de Telecomunicaciones, al considerarlo un «perigo para a saúde pública» y un «beneficio só para as grandes empresas». La propuesta está motivada desde la Plataforma Estatal Contra la Contaminación Electromagnética (PECCEM), una entidad compuesta por movimientos vecinales, ecologistas, personas afectadas y electrosensibles, así como organizaciones de defensa de la salud pública.
"This is the first generation to have kids from age 10 up to adulthood with cell phones right next to their heads and brains. Brains are developing up to age 22 to 25, so I think we have to be safe," stated Green. To raise awareness of RF exposure, Green introduced a measure calling for cell phones sold in Hawaii to come with a prominent warning -- similar to what smokers see on the sides of cigarette packages.
After removing several antennas from the heart of the neighborhoods, the business owners agreed to put them in the industrial zone. The residents fight them too. A resident said: "We live close to the industrial zone. I know 13 cancer patients only from the last year and all of them live in the neighborhoods near the industrial zone. Two of them died. We fight to remove the antennas from the city."
“Los niños se ven desproporcionadamente afectados… Las diferencias en la densidad ósea y la cantidad de líquido en el cerebro de un niño en comparación con el cerebro de un adulto podrían permitir que los niños absorban más profundamente en sus cerebros cantidades mayores de energía de RF (radiofrecuencia) que los adultos. Es esencial que las nuevas normas para los teléfonos móviles u otros dispositivos inalámbricos se basen en la protección de las poblaciones más jóvenes y más vulnerables para asegurar que estén protegidos a lo largo de sus vidas".
