A critical review of the reports by the US National Research Council and the US National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences as they relate to the broad realm of EMF bioeffects. published by National Research Council Canada.Abstract: Our dependence on electricity and our growing dependence on wireless telecommunication technology is causing this planet to be inundated with electromagnetic energy ranging in frequency from less than 60 Hz to greater than 2 GHz.

Electromagnetic fields of all frequencies represent one of the most common and fastest growing environmental influences, about which anxiety and speculation are spreading. All populations are now exposed to varying degrees of EMF, and the levels will continue to increase as technology advances.

As part of its Charter to protect public health and in response to public concern, the World Health Organization (WHO) established the International EMF Project in 1996 to assess the scientific evidence of possible health effects of EMF in the frequency range from 0 to 300 GHz.

The EMF Project is open to broad participation

The EMF Project is open to any WHO Member State government, i.e. department of health, or representatives of other national institutions concerned with radiation protection. The project is fully funded by participating countries and agencies.

Research into possible biological effects of RF energy is carried out in laboratories in the United States and around the world. In the U.S., most research has been funded by the Department of Defense, due to the extensive military use of RF equipment such as radar and high-powered radio transmitters.

A 1000-page risk report was only put online after court threats under the 1st amendment The blue bars show the degree to which the experts believed EMFs increased the risk of each illness eg they were 70% sure EMF increased the risk of child leukemia, 55% sure they increased risk of miscarriages.

The experts reviewed all the studies, some of which were themselves
reviews of previous studies. Before the study they gave the chance that EMFs caused noticeable increases in such diseases as only 10%.
They were swayed by the evidence. Of the studies referenced for the 10 illnesses, 131 found higher risk, 36 found lower risk. If these illnesses are unrelated to EMFs, this outcome would be a million- to-one chance.
