Environmental Health Trust Monthly Newsletter for July 2018

Henceforth, we will be providing links to some of the articles featured in the monthly newsletter of the Environmental Health Trust.  Here is the newsletter for July 2018:

The Berkeley Cell Phone “Right To Know” Ordinance

The Berkeley Cell Phone Right To Know city ordinance requires sellers to inform customers that keeping a device in a pocket or bra could lead to radiation exposure that exceeds federal guidelines. For years, cell-phone manufacturers have vigorously resisted state and local government attempts to require warning signs about radiation exposure even though their own user manuals advise caution about carrying or holding the phone close to your body while it’s transmitting. These warnings are buried deep in the tiny print of cell phone manuals.

Cell Phone Radiation Litigation

For three decades, cases have been filed related to brain tumors and cell phones use. Here is a sampling of some cases over the years. At the bottom of this page we have listed several news reports on cell phone radiation litigation.

A recent study has found cell-phone radiofrequency could enhance head and neck cancer by stimulating biological processes that promote cancer development. The study entitled “Effect of cell-phone radiofrequency on angiogenesis and cell invasion in human head and neck cancer cells” was published May 13, 2018.

Environmental Health Trust Files Request To FCC To Suspend “Unlawful Approval Of 5G Infrastructure”

The Environmental Health Trust joined community leaders throughout the nation in support of a request for reconsideration (filed May 29, 2018) calling on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to suspend the unlawful approval of 5G infrastructure until the Commission complies with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) and assesses the public health and environmental impacts of thousands of new towers critical to 5G—so-called “small wireless facilities,” each one of which can include more than 1,000 simultaneously operating antennas.
