Recommendations Regarding Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Exposure from the American Academy of Environmental Medicine

American Academy of Environmental Medicine Recommendations Regarding
Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Exposure

Physicians of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine recognize that patients are being adversely impacted by electromagnetic frequency (EMF) and radiofrequency (RF) fields and are becoming more electromagnetically sensitive.  


The AAEM recommends that physicians consider patients’ total electromagnetic exposure in their diagnosis and treatment, as well as recognition that electromagnetic and radiofrequency field exposure may be an underlying cause of a patient’s disease process.
   
Based on doubleblinded, placebo controlled research in humans, medical conditions and
disabilities that would more than likely benefit from avoiding electromagnetic and
radiofrequency exposure include, but are not limited to:  

  • Neurological conditions such as paresthesias, somnolence, cephalgia, dizziness,
  • unconsciousness, depression
  • Musculoskeletal effects including pain, muscle tightness, spasm, fibrillation
  • Heart disease and vascular effects  including arrhythmia, tachycardia, flushing,
  • edema  
  • Pulmonary conditions including chest tightness, dyspnea, decreased pulmonary
  • function  
  • Gastrointestinal  conditions including nausea, belching
  • Ocular (burning)  
  • Oral (pressure in ears, tooth pain)
  • Dermal (itching, burning, pain)   
  • Autonomic nervous system dysfunction (dysautonomia).  
  • Based on numerous studies showing harmful biological effects from EMF and RF exposure,
  • medical conditions and disabilities that would more than likely benefit from avoiding
  • exposure include, but are not limited to:  
  • Neurodegenerative diseases (Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, and
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.
  • Neurological conditions (Headaches, depression, sleep disruption, fatigue,
  • dizziness, tremors, autonomic nervous system dysfunction, decreased memory,
  • attention deficit disorder, anxiety, visual disruption).
  • Fetal abnormalities and pregnancy.
  • Genetic defects and cancer.
  • Liver disease and genitourinary disease.


Because Smart Meters produce Radiofrequency emissions, it is recommended that patients with the above conditions and disabilities be accommodated to protect their health.  The AAEM recommends: that no Smart Meters be on these patients’ homes, that Smart Meters be removed within a reasonable distance of patients’ homes depending on the patients’ perception and/or symptoms, and that no collection meters be placed near patients’ homes depending on patients’ perception and/or symptoms.
