Recently, close to 200 scientists have submitted and appealed to the United Nations requesting it to adopt guidelines to protect against electromagnetic radiation that is emitted from cellphones laptops, tablets and other modern wireless devices. The constant electromagnetic radiation from communication towers could lead to cancer and also cause many different neurological as well as cardiac and respiratory disorders. We are attempting to convey some very disturbing news about your favourite gadgets; which includes cell phones, tablets, Wi-Fi, etc.. Putting it bluntly they are damaging to the living cells in our bodies and killing many of us prematurely. Before the invention of the light bulb, there was very little electromagnetic radiation in our ambient environment.
The electromagnetic radiation levels today are very many times higher, than the natural background levels in our environment and is growing rapidly because of, all the new devices that emit this radiation. A good example is that, a lot of us have in our pockets right now, is the cell phone. One recent study shows that cell phone usage has spread widely, and the incidence of fatal brain cancer in younger people, has more than tripled. We are putting cellular antennas on residential buildings and on top of hospitals where people are trying to get well, as well as some schools.
Wireless utility meters, including smart meters, as well as cell towers are blanketing our neighbourhoods that also emit large amounts of radiation. It’s particularly frightening that radiation from our telecommunication and power line technology is damaging the DNA within ourselves. And it is very apparent to many biologists and scientists, that this can account for the rising cancer rates. This concern has rallied scientists from around the world, which have organized and begun submitting appeals to the United Nations, its member states and the World Health Organization to provide leadership in dealing with this emerging public health crisis.
They say it can cause serious health problems. Scientist have stated that even the increase in obesity autism and stillbirths may also be associated with the higher electromagnetic radiation in the environment. The suggestion for curbing wireless usage was to turn off cell phones and wireless devices when not in use. The International EMF scientific appeal have asked the UN its member states and the World Health Organization to provide leadership in limiting electromagnetic radiation exposure and to educate the public about its health risks.
