Welcome to EMR Safety

EMR Safety addresses scientific and policy developments concerning the health risks from exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR). provides a curated collection of links to articles on cell phones and cordless phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi, Smart Meters and other wireless devices.

I summarize the peer-reviewed research on health risks associated with wireless radiation including cancer risk, reproductive harm and neurological disorders; and expose the manufacturing of doubt about these risks by industry-linked scientists and organizations.

Since 2013, the web site has had more than two million page views by visitors from over 200 countries which attests to global concern about the impact of wireless radiation on our health.

During the past year, over half of visitors were from outside the United States with the United Kingdom, Canada, India, Australia, Israel, Germany, Italy, Greece, and Netherlands represented the most. About two-thirds of visitors were 25-54 years of age and 63% were male.

EMR Safety reached one million page views on April 7, 2017, 
and two million page views on March 11, 2019.

For visitors new to this web site or this topic, there are overviews about why we are concerned about cell phones and other wireless devices:
