In the last five years, new scientific studies show that the situation regarding wireless radiation pollution is far worse than thought in 2007.  As wireless devices have crept further into every day life, even for children, most people around the world now have far more daily exposure than five years ago.

The levels at which undesirable effects on health and well-being are seen is much lower. The levels of concern have dropped lower in 2012 by 10s to 100s of times.  There is much greater involuntary exposure, and it is nearly unavoidable even for people who choose not to ‘go wireless’ (second-hand radiation effects). These exposures are linked to a variety of adverse health outcomes that may have significant public health consequences.

My guests were Magda Havas, Associate Professor of Environmental & Resource Studies at Canada’s Trent University and Michael Bevington, a trustee of Electro-Sensitivity UK. Michael just updated his report on electromagnetic sensitivity summarizing over 1800 published scientific papers on the matter.

There was a small error in the master recording for this program, so the first couple of minutes are missing.  This would have been me introducing the topic for the show, my guests and asking Magda an initial question about what frequencies were of greatest concern.  The audio begins with her response.
