I submitted the following express comment today:
The Appeal has been signed by 221 scientists from 41 nations. All of these scientists have published peer-reviewed research on electromagnetic fields and biology or health.
The FCC’s RF guidelines were adopted 20 years ago. Many scientists and health professionals believe these guidelines do not protect the population from non-thermal health risks due to RF radiation exposure. To ensure public health and safety, the FCC should commission an independent review of the biologic and health research to determine stringent RF standards before allowing additional spectrum to be used for new commercial applications.
I also wish to remind you that the FCC has yet to act on NOI #13-84, “Reassessment of Federal Communications Commission Radiofrequency Exposure Limits and Policies,” issued in 2013 and a similar NOI issued a decade earlier. The 2013 NOI has received more than 900 submissions–almost all call for stronger regulation of RF radiation. Links to key submissions can be found on the Electromagnetic Radiation Safety website at http://www.saferemr.com/2014/08/part-i-why-we-need-stronger-cell-phone.html.
Finally, the General Accountability Office issued a report entitled, “Exposure and Testing Requirements for Mobile Phones Should Be Reassessed” (GAO-12-771: Published: Jul 24, 2012. http://www.gao.gov/products/GAO-12-771). The report made the following recommendations which have yet to be addressed by the FCC:
“FCC should formally reassess and, if appropriate, change its current RF energy exposure limit and mobile phone testing requirements related to likely usage configurations, particularly when phones are held against the body. FCC noted that a draft document currently under consideration by FCC has the potential to address GAO’s recommendations.”
