Citizens Resource Guide on Electromagnetic and Microwave Radiation
We believe people have the right to know what they are being exposed to. Toxic source emissions should be regularly monitored and fully disclosed to the general public. With that information, people can elect to reduce or eliminate chronic or excessive exposures to man-made radiation from electrical appliances or antennas, etc. Here are some excellent sources for more information on EMR protection.
Some very timely advice is available here for citizens who find themselves engaged in challenging a proposed cellular antenna in their neighborhood or modifications to an existing one. "Cell Tower Safety: A Citizens Tool Box" was developed by the EMR Policy Institute.
We the undersigned, favor increased restrictions on the number and location of cellular phone antennas and other wireless transmitters. As a matter of principle, these facilities should never be placed in close proximity to residences, schools, hospitals, health care centers, daycare centers, senior centers, playgrounds or places of worship. We call upon our public officials to subject these antennas to full regulation under environmental protection laws and with full regard for the public's health and safety according to the latest, independent scientific research.

Human sensitivity to electricity and chemicals used in modern technology has been observed for more than thirty years, initially by female computer workers. Scientific studies show the physical changes that occur due to the interaction between biology and non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation, from man-made and natural sources. It has been shown that health symptoms of electrical hypersensitivity are treatable, but the underlying condition cannot be cured, can be progressive and can lead to chronic and disabling diseases, some of which are terminal, e.g. cancers or Lou Gehrig's disease. More and more people claim to be electrically hypersensitive. Typical symptoms include burning sensation, swelling, poor concentration, memory loss, sleep problems and depression. These cluster of symptoms are believed to be similar to other environmentally induced or aggravated illnesses. For more information, go to:

The battle for the cure of breast cancer has galvanized women all over the U.S. in a serious science based investigation into the potential environmental links to breast, prostrate and other cancer as well as the sources of neurological diseases and learning disorders which are increasingly seen in children and older adults. The growing incidence rates are not explainable by the traditional risk factors, Here are some links to organizations who are involved in getting to the root of the problem and aim to treat the cause.
