Webinar: Health Effects of Cellphone & Cell Tower Radiation: Implications for 5G

Safer Technology Aotearoa New Zealand

November 27, 2021

97% of U.S. adults own a cellphone of some kind. The vast majority, 85%, own a smartphone. This presentation will summarize research on biologic and health effects from exposure to radio frequency radiation emitted by cell phones and cell towers. Learners will also discuss the implications of this research for 5G, the fifth generation of cellular technology.

Learning Objectives:

At the completion of this activity, the learner will be able to:

– Describe what wireless or radio frequency (RF) radiation is, including 5G, and its relationship to ionizing radiation
– Summarize the biologic and health effects caused by, or associated with, RF radiation exposure
– Explain why current national and international RF radiation exposure limits fail to protect the health of humans and other species

Speaker: Joel M. Moskowitz, PhD

Joel M. Moskowitz, PhD, has directed the Center for Family and Community Health in the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley since 1993. Dr. Moskowitz has published research on disease prevention for 40 years. In 2009 he served as the senior author on a hallmark paper reviewing research on mobile phone use and tumor risk published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. Last year he updated this meta-analysis in a paper published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. This year he co-authored a paper on electrohypersensitivity published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences. Since 2013 he has translated and disseminated research on the biologic and health effects of wireless radiation through his website (https://saferemr.com). In 2017, with legal representation from the UC Berkeley Environmental Law Clinic, he won a lawsuit against the California Department of Public Health for suppressing its own scientists’ cell phone safety guidance for eight years. This resulted in the Department finally publishing cell phone health warnings. He serves as an advisor to Physicians for Safe Technology and to the International EMF Scientist Appeal which was signed by over 250 scientists who published more than 2,000 papers and letters in professional journals on electromagnetic fields and biology or health.

The Micro Wave Debate Continues – Forty Years Later, Not Much Has Changed

Close to 40 years after its first publication, The Microwave Debate, Nicholas Steneck’s history of research and regulation of microwave health effects, is back in print —this time in Norwegian. The new translation comes with an epilogue by Thomas Butler, a professor at Ireland’s Cork University Business School, who has contributed seven chapters —about 30,000 words— to bring Steneck’s history up to the present.

Our Bacteria: Are They Trying to Tell us Something? – Olle Johansson, Associate Professor

A US DARPA-funded study* has found that bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus, biofilms communicate using frequencies that are in the range that are used by Wi-Fi and 5G C-band. The experiment found that “notable radiation is observed in the 3-4 GHz band” coming from the Staphylococcus aureus biofilms. It is part of a dangerous development I, Olle Johansson, have tried to emphasize and warn about for decades.
