“'Smart meters' should be abolished because they use short high-intensity pulses of microwave radiation. We know from the nanosecond pulse studies can be very damaging and act via VGCC activation, with activation continuing long after the pulse has ceased.” (2013)
Dr Martin Pall
Washington State University
"This is a major problem in public health. We know with certainty that electro-hypersensitivity is not psychosomatic"
Prof. Dominique Belpomme,
Descartes University, Paris,
President, Association for Research and Treatments against Cancer
“Electromagnetic hypersensitivity must exist.
Even without the ultimate scientific proof, the existence of EHS is a simple fact of life. The only question is what exposure levels are sufficient to trigger EHS.
For every radiation type, every chemical, every environmental pollutant there exist sub-populations of people who are more sensitive than others. This phenomenon, known as individual sensitivity, is encoded in our genetic diversity. It is a fact that individual sensitivity exists." (2014)
"The nocebo effect does not disprove the existence of EHS.” (2015)
Professor Dariusz Leszczynski,
Adjunct Professor of Biochemistry, University of Helsinki, Finland;
formerly Head of the Radiation Biology Laboratory, the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK), Finland
"I became electrically sensitive. People who have electrical sensitivity show that we do take some risk. Until we know more, we cannot say this is no problem.”

“Il y a un petit nombre d'individus - qui sont plus sensibles que les autres – qui sont notre sonnette d'alarme"
(“There are a small number of people - who are more sensitive than others - who are our alarm bells.”) (2014)

“As a cardiac specialist, I am concerned that about 20% of people have detrimental cardiac rhythm sensitivity to electro-magnetic radiation (EMR). It is imperative that the City of Toronto does not install WiFi in public parks and spaces." (2013)
Professor Hugh Scully,
Professor of Surgery and Health Policy, University of Toronto, Cancada
"The reduction of EMF exposure should also be extended to public spaces such as schools, hospitals, public transport, and libraries to enable persons with EHS an unhindered use" (2016)
“Evidence is emerging that the health hazards associated with wireless microwave are at least comparable to, if not worse than, those associated with cigarette smoking. Now that smoking bans are in place all over the world, there is no reason not to do the same with wi-fi.
All wi-fi networks in public places should be dismantled, especially in schools and universities, and a ban imposed. For the same reasons, citywide networks should not be installed.” (2007)
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho,
Institute of Science in Society, UK
“Wi-Fi in schools, in contrast to wired Internet connections, will increase risk of neurologic impairment and long-term risk of cancer in students.
Promoting wireless technology in schools disregards the current health warning from international science and public health experts in this field.
We recommend that your school district install wired internet connections and develop school curriculum that teaches students of all ages safer ways to use their technology devices.” (2015)
Prof. Dr Lennart Hardell & Michael Calrberg,
Department of Oncology, Orebro University Hospitla, Sweden
"The reported incidence of the syndrome is increasing. The weight of evidence indicates that EHS is a real syndrome induced by exposure to either ELF or RF EMF."
Dr David Carpenter MD,
Institute for Health and the Environment,
University at Albany, NY
"We recognize the growing public health problem known as electro-hypersensitivity." (2008)
International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety,
“Scientific evidence indicates that the neurological syndrome of electromagnetic hypersensitivity exists.
Having established that such a syndrome exists, it now becomes the responsibility of clinicians to formulate diagnostic guidelines. Such efforts are underway at institutions around the world.” (2016)
Dr Anrew Marino,
Louisiana State University,
“Limiting safety guidelines to heating effects [i.e. FCC] means that these guidelines allow exposures that are something like 7.2 million times too high. Why then does the FCC stick with these totally unscientific safety guidelines? The FCC is completely failing in its role of protecting the public and it is a major blunder, therefore, to depend on the FCC guidelines as a reliable predictor of impact of EMFs in humans." (2017)
Professor Martin L. Pall,
Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences,
Washington State University
“The quidelines of ICNIRP are irrelevant to present situation when majority of population over the world is chronically exposed to non-thermal RF from mobile communication” (2017)
The Russian National Committee
on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (RNCNIRP)
“Current FCC standards do not account for the unique vulnerability and use patterns specific to pregnant women and children. It is essential that any new standard for cell phones or other wireless devices be based on protecting the youngest and most vulnerable populations to ensure they are safeguarded throughout their lifetimes. ” (2013)
Thomas K. McInerny, MD FAAP
American Academy of Pediatrics
“'EHS is, without a doubt, a genuine, somatic illness. It causes cerebral problems with blood flow and inflammation. Radiofrequency radiation causes oxidative stress.
Only 1 per cent of the EHS have phobias.” (2016)
Dr. Riina Bray,
Environmental Health Clinic
affiliated to the University of Toronto
"Electro-Sensitivity is an epidemic and not 3% of the population. We are now in the double digits in terms of ES. The public must be told.
WiFi in schools is a disaster and as a person who spends 2-4 hours every day on the phone with people and children who got sick, with many contemplating committing suicide, I urge you all to be uncompromising. The truth, and all of it, must be told."
Dafna Tachover MBA
Attorney (New York & Israel)
“Some guidelines [e.g. ICNIRP heating Guidelines] may still not provide adequate protection for certain sensitive individuals nor for normal individuals exposed concomitantly to other agents, which may exacerbate the effect of the Non-Ionizing Radiation (NIR) exposure,” (2002)

on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP)
