Congress Has Failed to Fund EPA Research Into Biological Effects of RF Emissions on Human Health

Please see below an important document. It is a Petition for Writ of Certiorari to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit from September 8, 2000. It clarifies how decades ago, when FCC limits were set, the EPA was defunded from properly reviewing the science on harm from electromagnetic fields.

“The real problem here is that the most recent FCC standards set in 1996, are still based on thermal effects, despite newer information coming from scientific sectors largely outside of the U.S. The current FCC standards were adopted from decades old research reviewed by the National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP Report No. 86, issued April 2, 1986), and from the American National Standards Institute (EEE Standard for Safety Levels with Respect to Human Exposure to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields, 3kHz to 300 GHz, approved Sept. 26, 1991, with a cut-off date for scientific papers of December, 1985).”

“Both Professional agencies have a 5-to-7 year built-in time lag in their review process, and their respective RF committees are comprised almost entirely of physicists, engineers and bioelectromagnetics researchers — not professionals from the public health sector. In other words, dated, inappropriate research, reviewed by authorities from inappropriate professions, is being used to reach conclusions about public safety concerning radio frequency radiation. Why has there been no better up-dating of the FCC standards? The answer is obvious: because *25 Congress has not appropriated adequate funds to conduct nonthermal research by the key federal agency — EPA.”

“The Court’s reliance on the EPA was technically correct but substantively naive. What the Court did not realize was that Congress terminated funding for radiation research by EPA in 1996, and no staff has been available at EPA to conduct such research for the past five years.”
