The Santa Fe New Mexican newspaper has published an important article by Scott Wyland on the latest landmark review papers on impacts of wireless and electromagnetic field radiation to wildlife published in Reviews on Environmental Health.
The article entitled “Toxic Towers: Report says wireless radiation, said by telecom companies to be harmless, could be hurting wildlife” features a new three part scientific research review on wireless and non-ionizing radiation.
The Santa Fe New Mexican article is making national headlines and was picked up by Yahoo News.
“There needs to be regulatory standards to address EMFs affecting wildlife,” said Albert Manville, a retired U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist who co-authored the paper.
“The transmissions can disorient bees, causing them to become lost, not return to their hives and die,” Manville was quoted in the article. “The bees are already threatened by pesticides and climate change…It’s death by a thousand cuts.”
Medical/science journalist Blake Levitt, lead author of the report described how the review “invalidates any claims that the EMFs don’t cause biological effects.”
Co-author Henry Lai, PhD, University of Washington professor emeritus and former Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine editor-in-chief also recently published a review on the genetic effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields.
Environmental Health Trust was featured in this article as we submitted these wildlife papers as key evidence in a recent NEW filing to the FCC. After our August 2021 win in federal court, the FCC has been mandated to re-examine its wireless radiation safety limits. EHT’s NEW filing to the FCC has two parts
