Citizens for Safe Technology
Empowering the public to protect children
and nature from unsafe wireless technologies.
Science and Research
There is mounting evidence worldwide, contained in reputable peer reviewed and published studies and journals, showing adverse biological effects from low-frequency, radiofrequency fields.
Governmental health protection agencies are reluctant to recognize new studies as relevant, claiming that more research is needed over an extended period of time before any protective measures need to be taken.
There is already substantial and compelling research in this field. In view of the unprecedented speed with which wireless technologies are being deployed and adopted, many highly respected scientists have repeatedly presented credible, insightful, brave and forward-looking evidence with minimal funding or support. Based on results and careful observation, they are saying that strong evidence warrants caution.
Just as harm from wireless technologies has not been proven to the satisfaction of our present governments, neither have they ever been proven to be safe. Due to the fact that there are no unaffected populations left, there can be no "control" for traditional experimentation.
Until such time as wireless technologies and infrastructure are proven to be safe, our old paradigm is sorely lacking.

for concluding that radiation from cellular and cordless phones is a probable human carcinogen
From the Abstract in the journal Pathophysiology:
"Many nations, phone manufacturers, and expert groups, advise prevention in light of these concerns by taking the simple precaution of 'distance' to minimize exposures to the brain and body. We note than brain cancer is the proverbial 'tip of the iceberg'; the rest of the body is also showing effects other than cancers."
The full text of the article mentions the view about changing classification of RF-EMF (electromagetic radiation from wireless devices) to a "probable human carcinogen".

The autonomic nervous system is affected by the microwaves of the centimetre wavelength band. These waved affect circulation, respiration, temperature control, water balance, albumin and sugar concentration in the cerebro-spinal fluid, hydrogen ion concentration, EEG, GSR, sleep, conscious awareness, etc. Depending on the applied dosage, these waves stimulate the sympathetic or parasympathetic system. Very small dosages produce analgesic effects; however very large dosages are fatal. An undamped or modulated frequency is more effective than damped waves. The biological effects of these waves results from the resonance absorption in the ganglia. There are indications that only higher harmonics, and not the fundamental frequency, produce biological effects. The shielding of the test subject by metal screens increases these effects; however, magnetic fields remove them. Higher harmonics producing these biological effects have physical properties which are similar to those of the bio-electrical energy generated by the human body. The mechanism of hypothesis is explained by the transmission of this energy.

Panagopoulos: Electromagnetic Interaction Between Environmental Fields and Living System Determines Health and Well-Being

ABSTRACT: " . . . In the present chapter we present data showing the electric nature of both our natural environment and the living organisms and how the inevitable interaction between the two, determines health and well-being. We present two possible ways by which external EMFs like those produced by human technology can distort the physiological endogenous electric currents and the corresponding biological/physiological functions...."
"... delicate electromagnetic equilibrium between living organisms and their natural environment, determines health and well-being, and how its disturbance will inevitably lead sooner or later to health effects. . . ."
Cell Phone Use May Increase Their Risk of ADHD
Excerpts in an April 2, 2013 Press Release from Joel M. Moskowitz, Ph.D., School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley:
A new study finds that children who use cell phones who are exposed to lead are at greater risk of developing Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder than lead-exposed children who do not use cell phones much or at all.
"... preventing the use of mobile phones in children may be one measure to keep children from developing ADHD symptoms ..."

"Can you remember the last time you were in a public space in America and didn't notice that half the people around you were bent over a digital screen, thumbing a connection to somewhere else?
Most of us are well aware of the convenience that instant electronic access provides. Less has been said about the costs. Research that my colleagues and I have just completed, to be published in a forthcoming issue of Psychological Science, suggests that one measurable toll may be on our biological capacity to connect with other people."

Cell Phone radiation and harmful effects: Just how much more proof do you need? (2012)
"Dr. Andrew Goldsworthy has written this article about the harmful effects of electro magnetic radiation.
"It explains in some detail, but in lay-person's terms, the mechanisms underlying the various harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation from power lines and mobile telecommunication devices.
"The Industry can no longer claim that there is no known mechanism by which low level radiation can cause biological damage.
"It also goes on to say how the Industry, apparently deliberately, ignored warnings about the dangers involved in the specific pulse frequencies that they subsequently used in digital telecommunications. . . .
Proteomic Analysis on the Alteration of Protein Expression in the Early-Stage Placental Villous Tissue of Electromagnetic Fields Associated With Cell Phone Exposure February, 2013
". . . The trophoblastic cells in early pregnancy are extremely sensitive to oxidative stress because of extensive cell divisions and the concomitant exposure of their DNA. In vivo study supports the concept of physiologically low O2 environment inside the human gestational sac during most of the first trimester of pregnancy. The TXNL-2 is one of the most important antioxidant enzymes. In the present study, placental villous tissues were found to possess lower concentrations of antioxidant enzyme. The TXNL-2 at early-stage pregnancy with RF-EMF exposure was compared to without exposure, suggesting that the depletion of placental antioxidant defenses might exist as a key mechanism of the biological effects of RF-EMF on early-stage pregnancy. In these circumstances, the damage to proteins and nucleic acid might severely impair normal trophoblastic functions and may even lead to cell death.
"Alteration of other functional protein was also evident. . . .
". . . RF-EMF exposure may exert adverse effects on the placenta function and even the developing brain function especially the psychic dysfunction consequently. It is widely recognized that high strength EMF might exert adverse effects on brain functions . . .

"This addendum to the Nonlethal Technologies . . . Worldwide study addresses in summary, some of the most often-asked questions of non-lethal weapons technology, the physiological responses observed in clinical settings of the biophysical coupling and susceptibility of personnel to nonlethal effects weapons. These results identify and validate some aspects of maturing nonlethal technologies that may likely be encountered or used as nonlethal effectors in the future including:

Citizens For Safe Technology
"Wi-Fi: Is It Safe?"
Citizens for Safe Technology is a not-for-profit educational society made up of parents, grandparents, teachers, business professionals, scientists, politicians and lawyers concerned about the exponential increase in public exposure to harmful wireless technologies.
We believe a profound urgency exists to protect the unsuspecting public, especially children, youth and pregnant mothers from unsafe wireless technologies.
