FCC Is Re-Considering Its Radiation Exposure Limits
- 0 Comments
Comments Due by SEPTEMBER 3, 2013
The Federal Communications Commission is requesting comments on “whether its limits should be more restrictive, less restrictive, or remain the same.”
If you have something you want to tell the FCC about what has happened to you, now is the time to do so. If you have been injured, tell the FCC your story. If you have doctors’ reports, send them to the FCC now. Say “I HAVE BEEN INJURED BY RF RADIATION THAT COMPLIES WITH CURRENT EXPOSURE LIMITS.” If you have been driven out of your home, or your city, say so. If you can no longer work at your job because of wireless technology, say so. If you can no longer go out in public, travel, go to City Hall, visit a hospital, say so. These comments all go onto the FCC’s website for the public, members of Congress, and everyone else to read. If we all send our stories in, they will comprise a document unlike any other in the world.
A summary of the Notice of Inquiry was just published in the Federal Register: https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2013/06/04/2013-12713/reassessment-of-exposure-to-radiofrequency-electromagnetic-fields-limits-and-policies#h-29, beginning at paragraph 47.
The complete Notice of Inquiry is here, beginning at paragraph 205: http://www.fcc.gov/document/fcc-review-rf-exposure-policies
The Notice of Inquiry makes clear that the FCC does not think there is any reason to lower its exposure limits. But every comment sent becomes part of the public record, and if ten thousand injured people send comments, we cannot easily be ignored.
Some of us were involved in 1996 when the FCC adopted its current exposure limits. We all made the mistake of believing that the scientific studies we sent would be read and acted upon. The FCC ignored 15,000 pages of science. We have even more science now, but in addition we have 17 years of exposure to radiation behind us. Hundreds of thousands of people have been severely injured by radiation that complies with current limits. The last time, only about 100 people in the U.S. sent comments on the proposed exposure limits. This time, we need ten thousand, and we need personal stories. Lots of them.
