Request to NGOs worldwide to support the International EMF Scientist Appeal to the United Nations

Announcement from the International EMF Alliance
iemfa.org, 11 May 2015

The International Electromagnetic Field Alliance (IEMFA) has received a statement of support for the International EMF Scientist Appeal submitted to the United Nations on May 11, 2015, from 70 NGOs in 14 countries. See the Appeal at: EMFscientist.org

To date, 198 scientists from 39 nations have signed the Appeal. Each has published peer-reviewed research on biological or health effects of non-ionizing radiation, including extremely low frequency fields (ELF) used for electricity or radio frequency radiation (RFR) used for wireless communications.

These EMF scientists are raising serious concerns regarding the risks for humankind and nature from ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF sources (electromagnetic fields and radiofrequency radiation) generated by electric and wireless devices from electrical power sources and the global wireless communications infrastructure. These scientists recognize that current international EMF exposure guidelines do not protect against long-term exposure or low-intensity effects, are insufficient to protect the health of humankind, and do not take into account the risks for all other biological organisms. The Appeal calls upon the United Nations (UN) and all member States in the world to encourage the World Health Organization (WHO) to exert strong leadership in fostering the development of more protective EMF guidelines and to take precautionary measures to reduce EMF exposure conditions.

Organizations who have chosen to support this International EMF Scientist Appeal will be posted with the NGO letter of support on the IEMFA website along with the Appeal, when it is released. See: www.iemfa.org

You can add your organization to this list by contacting Janet Newton, President of The EMR Policy Institute in the United States, at:  JNewton@emrpolicy.org
