EMF Research & Sources

Here’s a list of sources I’ll often reference when writing articles for EducateEMF. It’s important to me that I provide trusted academic sources to my readers. I will keep adding to this list as I do more research and the research is released.

Their advisory board is made up of M.D.s and Ph.D.s and they state their mission as “We are a group of physicians and health professionals whose mission is to provide trusted leadership in promoting, healthy and safe environments through the safer use of technology at home, in schools, in the workplace, in healthcare settings and in communities.”

IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer). Non-ionizing Radiation, Part 1: Static and Extremely Low-frequency (ELF) Electric and Magnetic Fields. You can download the PDF for free and these findings are often referenced in my articles about ELF (extremely low frequency) electric and magnetic fields and the possible carcinogenic effect on humans. Here’s the about section from this site (bolding is my emphasis):

This volume evaluates possible carcinogenic hazards from exposures to static and extremely low frequency (ELF) electric and magnetic fields. It is the first of two IARC Monographs volumes on various kinds of non-ionizing radiation. Extremely low frequency (ELF) magnetic field exposures result from proximity to electric power transmission lines, household wiring, and electric appliances and are in addition to the exposure that results from the earth’s magnetic field. Overall, extremely low frequency magnetic fields were evaluated as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B).

World Health Organization – backgrounder on exposure to extremely low frequency fields. Includes a good discussion on potential long term effects on ELF magnetic field exposure along with a great list of further readings

Bioinitiative 2012 – written and edited by a group of M.D.s, Ph.D.s, and other scientists

this report is a great downloadable resource. Here’s the table of contents. It covers topics like the inadequacy of the existing ICNIRP and IEEE C95.1 radiofrequency radiation standards to the effects of electromagnetic fields from wireless communication on the blood-brain barrier, a report from several doctors. This report is worth a bookmark to reference as needed since each section is a full report.

The Environmental Health Trust states ,

it is a “think tank that promotes a healthier environment through research, education, and policy.” The team of scientists provide a wealth of information on topics from 5G risks, general cell phone radiation information and is kept up to date on the latest research around the world.

Wi-Fi is an important threat to human health. Environ Res. 2018. This is a 2018 academic article on the effects of the increased levels of Wifi all around us. This one is great because it references 23 controlled, scientific studies on the effect of Wifi.
