DONATE TO THE EMR NETWORK
Did you know that the same radiation that comes from a cell phone and cell phone antennas has been shown to break DNA, a precursor to cancer (Lai, H. and Sigh, N.P., 1996)? And it is associated with a variety of diseases and disorders including decreases in reproductive function, learning disabilities, immune system suppression, sleep disturbance, depression, cardiovascular abnormalities, memory impairment, refractive eye problems, changes in calcium efflux, headaches, dizziness, and skin rashes.
Did you know that the telecommunications companies are demanding to put up more antennas that will produce more radiation? Their excuse? To service mobile phones that take pictures/videos that can be sent wirelessly, and cards for computers to provide Internet access wirelessly, including voice over internet. And, did you know that for every new device you buy the demand for this increased capacity goes up?
And, whether you use a wireless device or not – you will be exposed to ever expanding amounts of microwave radiation.
The feedback that we have received from you, our supporters, is that we need a better, up-to-date, simple-to-understand web site. We also believe that citizens struggling to work with local officials to site wireless facilities in the least intrusive fashion need to have a forum where they can share information with those in other municipalities across the country.
The EMR Network is in the process of updating our website and launching our new initiative, “Campaign for Radiation-Free Communities: Places People Call Home”. (See our new Facebook page of the same name: https://www.facebook.com/Campaign-for-Radiation-Free-Communities-Places-People-Call-Home-214352479285125/?eid=ARCW5s3fKA4IbJk0-Qf54MmXZ9w3fvlZlLrcN-caKPI5SOhlFSAZxAGe00BZCjV1wDLf1s6-adUqI0LY) Here, legal, technical, scientific and other ideas can be shared, citizen to citizen. We will invite our advisors and those with expertise in the many aspects of the wireless issue to add to the discussion. As our name implies, our mission has always been to create a network of information and support. We will continue to post the results of credible scientific research as well as efforts to reform policy at the national level.
Updating a website costs money. We need help with this effort. We at the EMR Network continue to work without remuneration, as has been the case since our inception in November of 1998.
