Scientific experts will discuss the important emerging public health issue relating to widespread proliferation of electromagnetic fields. Radiation emitted by cell phones and cell towers has been linked to DNA damage, cancer, immunological impairment, neurological diseases and impacts on neurological function, including cognition, behavior, performance, mood status and disruption of sleep. Radiation may also be harming animals and nature, and is as much an environmental as human-health issue. Join us for scientific and health policy presentations about the little-known consequences of telecommunications technologies, electrification and new utility technologies like Smart Meters, and for a discussion of how governments, businesses, parents and schools should best respond. Speakers include Martin Blank, PhD, of Columbia University; Olle Johansson, PhD, of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden; Joel Moskowitz, PhD, of UC Berkeley; physician-epidemiologist Sam Milham, MD; and Magda Havas, PhD, of Trent University in Canada.
