Additional Lawsuits

  • Alaskan Supreme Court: 2007

“Award for RF Radiation Injury Below Thermal Exposure Limit” (LBA Group, 2007): 

“The award was based on the psychological and cognitive effects of RF radiation and over-exposure. This decision is significant because the FCC RF limit is designed to keep people from being heated and ignores evidence of other adverse biological effects at much lower levels.”

  • Denver, Colorado, USA

“FM Radio Cancer Suit Settled” (Microwave News, May/June 1990, p.15):

KYGO, an FM radio station near Denver, Colorado, settled a lawsuit alleging radiation-induced cancer out of court for an undisclosed sum. The case alleged that RF radiation from Jefferson Pilot Broadcasting Inc. had caused Beryl Main to develop non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. An EPA survey in 1986 measured 300 microWatts per cm squared on the camp which Beryl Main owned and operated with his wife. KYGO lowered it transmitter output from 100 kW to 1 kW and agreed to limit radiation levels to 10 microWatts per cm squared; KYGO later relocated its transmitter.

  • Sharesa Price 2005

“Court victory is a first for cell-phone programmers” (Sun Sentinel, Florida, October 2 2005) Sharesa Price was awarded $30,000 towards medical expenses for a brain tumour caused by radio frequency radiation. Source: Environmental Health Trust
