Is EMF dangerous for health ?
Scientists are taking it seriously
“Symptoms of retarded memory, learning, cognition, attention, and behavioral problems have been reported in numerous studies and are similarly manifested in autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorders, as a result of EMF and RFR exposures where both epigenetic drivers and genetic (DNA) damage are likely contributors.”

“Not only do their [children’s] thinner skulls, greater tissue conductivity and smaller heads increase their radiation absorption when on a phone call, but their cumulative lifetime exposure to the radiation will also be much greater.”
“Exposure to non-thermal radio frequency radiation from Wi-Fi and cellular phones can disrupt normal cellular development, especially fetal development. A 2004 animal study linked exposure to delayed kidney development.”
“Consequently, these population groups would be more susceptible than average to the described effects. In short, bathing the developmentally young in Wi-Fi increases their risk of developmental issues.”

« Scientific evidence demonstrates that microwave radiations from mobile phones and Wi-Fi damages our DNA and harms our health. »
« Dr Magda Havas, Associate Professor of Environmental and Resource Studies at Trent University, Ontario, Canada, comments on exposure to Wi-Fi in schools: « We’ve got the analogy of a classroom being the inside of a microwave oven »

“As children develop, they differ from adults in a number of important ways, including anatomy, metabolism, immune system, and the extent of myelination of the nervous system. As a consequence, equivalent exposures to radiation from mobile phones result in different doses to specific tissues in children compared with adults. Higher doses are likely to have more severe implications in the young.”

To more control and regulation
- France : In 2015, with Abeille’s law, The French government forbids wifi in public establishment such as maternity or day nursery.
- In 2015, The City of Berkeley passed an ordinance requiring cell phone retailers to provide a safety notice to their customers
- In 2015, The ElectromagneticHealth.org on behalf of a committee of 190 international scientists realised an appeal to the UN and the WHO on the risks of electromagnetic fields emitted by telecommunications and utility technologies.
