LETTER: FCC deserves 'F' for RF/MW emissions

It is time for us to grade the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC does not deserve any C's. It has earned all F's for failing to protect public safety from harmful effects of radiofrequency/microwave emissions.

When adopting RF/MW exposure limits in 1996 this federal agency ignored over 2,300 early studies that showed biological damage from non-heating levels of this radiation, compiled by the Naval Medical Research Center in 1971 (www.magdahavas.com/introduction-to-from-zorys-archive/).

Today there are 1,800-plus recent studies in the 2012 BioInitiative Report that show damage to fetal brain development, DNA, sperm health, breast safety from cancer and cognitive and neurological function at levels lower than FCC allows (www.bioinitiative.org/conclusions/).

Will we let them continue to put our families at risk?

Luckily, we have a unique chance to influence FCC standards on RF radiation limits. The FCC is updating limits to possibly raise them so they can sell more spectrum. But first they must request/accept public comment.

You can finally have a say about this agency's irresponsible physics-based RF radiation standards. Let's give the FCC a reading assignment to read and consider all 4,00-plus scientific studies toward adopting new biologically based standards. Let's tell them to lower, not raise, our families' cumulative microwave/radiofrequency exposure.

Let's tell FCC to empower the Environmental Protection Agency biological experts, not just electricians, to create non-thermal safety standards in order to "raise the FCC's grade" and protect our families.
