Each day, we are swimming in an ocean of electromagnetic radiation produced by electric appliances, power lines, wiring in buildings, and a slew of other technologies that are a part of modern life. From the dishwasher and microwave oven in the kitchen and the clock radio next to your bed, to the cellular telephone you hold to your earsometimes for hours each dayexposure to EMR is growing and turning into a heavy health threat.
Most lately, a Danish epidemiological study told to great fanfare the incorrect conclusion that cell telephone use is totally safe. George Carlo, PhD, JD, is an epidemiologist and medical scientist who, from 1993 to 1999, headed the 1st telecomms industry-backed studies into the risks of cell telephone use. That program remains the biggest in the history of the issue. But he ran afoul of the industry that employed him when his work exposed preventable health dangers related to cell telephone use.
