It's time to regulate RF exposure

In August 2021, the United States Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit ruled that the Federal Communication Commission’s radio frequency guidelines were “arbitrary and capricious”. This warning should be heard worldwide, as these guidelines define “safe” legal exposures to wireless communications, in addition to other radio frequencies (RF).

The casual use of wireless communications by the public fails to capture the enormity of the health threats, nor the unusual nature and seriousness of this administrative court ruling. The general public remains misinformed.

That same year, on behalf of plaintiffs accusing cell phones of causing brain cancer, Dr. Chris Portier, former director of the US Environmental Toxicology Program, prepared a 176-page report with 443 references concluding: “to a reasonable degree of scientific certainty, the likelihood that RF exposure causes gliomas and neuromas [tumors] is high.”

Yet the DC circuit’s decision, which was called “highly deferential,” censured the FCC not for cancer, but rather for its failure to examine “non-cancer related” health and modern exposure – citing the concerns of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Council of Europe, the cities of Boston and Philadelphia, medical associations, thousands of doctors and scientists, and hundreds of people “who were themselves or had loved ones suffering from the alleged effects of radiation”.

The public is confused as the RF industry has funded biased science, journalism, front groups, a former tobacco scientist, advertisements, and generally called science and criticism biased, dubious and “fringe” without conclusive evidence or consensus. Such a press would harm anyone: Charles Darwin, Isaac Newton, George Washington Carver, Louis Pasteur and Jane Goodall.

The spin is also wrong. Dr. Henry Lai, professor emeritus of bioengineering at UWA, found that of 261 peer-reviewed wireless studies published from 2007 to 2020, 91% found significant effects of free radicals – when an excess of free radicals contribute to aging and disease – and of 336 peer-reviewed wireless studies, 73% found significant neurological effects.

Dr. Lai has transparently posted the summaries of these studies online at Wikipedia, far from being an authoritative source, criticizes the Bioinitiative as “self-published” and cites vague criticisms of seven groups, some of which, like IEEE COMAR, have been accused of conflicts of interest.

To say that the majority of studies are wrong is a pious bias. The conclusions of Dr. Lai’s abstracts are difficult to dispute, as many of them are animal or cell studies showing significant structural or chemical changes that have serious consequences. Findings of astrogliosis, potential gliosis, reduced neurotransmitters and increased GFAP levels in four studies are, for example, associated with central nervous system damage and diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, mood disorders and stroke, all of which were trending with earlier onset sharply upwards long before COVID-19.

These findings alone should be reason enough for the public to severely limit wireless. First steps may include turning off cell phone antennas (bluetooth, Wi-Fi, location), using airplane mode, buying a corded phone, and unplugging an unused router day and night.

Second steps can be to call your state officials to support my personally favorite bills to reduce wireless exposures of technology, H. 105-114 and S. 2204, before Wednesday, February 2, when limit for committee decisions. The Joint Advanced Computing Committee, led by chairs Rep. Linda Campbell and Senator Barry Finegold, and vice chairs Senator Susan L. Moran and Rep. Daniel Carey, will decide on H. 105-114 . The Joint Telecommunications Committee, chaired by Sen. Michael Barret and Rep. Jeffrey Roy, along with vice chairs, Sen. Marc Pacheco and Rep. Paul Mark, will decide for S. 2204.

As a former professor of English Literature with a legal background, I prepared H. 105-114, and at the last moment provided them to Rep. Patricia Duffy, who was able to read and then sponsor H. 105-108, and I submitted the rest on my behalf.

In addition to requiring quality assurance for cell towers (H. 113), limiting exposures in hospitals and nursing homes (H. 108), and examining impacts on first responders (H. 114 ), many bills focus on education, for example to limit exposures in daycares, schools, and universities (H. 105 and H. 112). H. 106 eliminates state standards mandates that require the use of technology unless domain-specific, allowing local authorities to set time limits on screen time in school. H. 107 limits the collection of educational data, sets standards for handling data, and also limits the use of technologies that lack educational benefits. Using less technology protects privacy and limits random RF exposures. Other bills are described and linked at

Obviously, casual RF exposure must stop, at least until it is regulated for safety. In 2016, Dr. Martin Pall summarized human RF studies, commonly finding insomnia, headaches, depression, cognitive dysfunction, and anxiety. Hostility, paranoid ideas, interpersonal sensitivity, compulsiveness, loss of empathy, and complete apathy have also been reported. As polite and sane society goes into freefall, wiring can only help.
