Welcome to EMR Safety

EMR Safety discusses scientific and policy developments regarding the health risks from exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR) produced by cell phones and cordless phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi, Smart Meters, baby monitors and other wireless devices.

This website summarizes the peer-reviewed research on various health risks associated with exposure to wireless radiation including cancer risk, reproductive harm and neurological disorders.

I also examine the tactics used by industry to manufacture confusion about the science in order to convince governments to maintain inadequate regulation of wireless technology and provide the public with a false sense of security.

EMR Safety reached the million page view mark on April 7th of this year. 

This website has had more than one million pageviews by visitors from over 200 countries. This attests to the worldwide concern about the impact of wireless radiation on our health. Over half of visitors were from outside the United States with Canada, the United Kingdom, Russia, India, France, Australia, Germany, Israel, Greece, Italy and Spain represented the most. About half of visitors were 25-44 years of age and 58% were male.

For visitors who are new to this web site or this topic, here are some good overviews of what we are concerned about with cell phones and other wireless devices, and why:
