Wireless Safety is Needed Because the FCC is Not Doing Its Job

The Federal Communications Commission is supposed to regulate interstate commerce involving the wireless industry. According to the agency's website it provides leadership for consumers, public safety, accessibility, competition, and technological and economic opportunity. Yet, it is not fulfilling this role, especially in public safety. 

In June of 2015, the Edmund J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University published an ebook, Captured Agency: How the Federal Communications Commission is Dominated by the Industries It Presumes to Regulate. According to the book, "Most insidious of all, the wireless industry has been allowed to grow unchecked and virtually unregulated with fundamental questions on public health impact routinely ignored."

Thousands of studies have demonstrated biological effects with exposure to wireless radiation. In 2011 the World Health Organization classified wireless radiation as a class 2B possible human carcinogen, in the same class as DDT and chloroform. We don't know if wearing and using wireless devices will negatively impact our health over the long-term. With a lack of long-term health and safety testing of wireless products, it is best to take precautions.

Let's learn more about wireless radiation and the electromagnetic spectrum.
