This half-day program organized by the Commonwealth Club’s Health and Medicine Forum and ElectromagneticHealth.org will be the largest public forum yet in the United States on the known and potential health hazards from cell phones and wireless technologies, including new wireless utility technologies such as Smart Meters.
Scientific and policy experts from 5 countries (Canada, Sweden, Norway, U.K. and USA) will present the science showing biological effects from electromagnetic fields and discuss health and environmental policy recommendations in light of the risks.
Important new research will be presented on EMF impacts on DNA, heart function and the role of electrification in the diseases of civilization, such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer and suicide. Special focus will be paid to greater risks for children, impairment of reproductive function, environmental impacts and whether ‘Smart’ Meters are actually smart.
Presenting experts receive no funding from the telecommunications industry.
