ECU 655 Dr. Devra Davis Pt. 2 Dr. Devra Davis, founder, and president of Environmental Health Trust, is interviewed in Part 2 of a two-part Enviro Close-Up series. We start with her book Disconnect: The Truth About Cell Phone Radiation, What the Industry Is Doing to Hide It, and How To Protect Your Family. It received the Sonoma State University’s Project Censored Award for “the news that didn’t make the news.” She describes the “inadequacy of current tests” for cell phones, and the health impact of radiation from them—notably on sperm counts and brain cells. “We need a program to warn people. The industry does not want you to know they know,” says Dr. Davis. Meanwhile, “the cell phone industry is the largest advertiser across media in the world today.” Its push is based on the “tobacco industry” disinformation model. Also, cell phone towers impact on health. Moreover, the push underway now for 5G is a “huge marketing ploy” to sell “50 billion new devices” and it’s an “energy vampire.” Says Dr. Davis: “We are in the middle of the largest experiment ever conducted on our children and grandchildren. There are no controls. We are exposing every living thing on this planet to microwave radiation from towers to routers and phones and we know it is having an effect.” Dr. Davis has been also active for decades in challenging climate change, lead author for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change of the United Nations. Although the U.S. no longer has a president “denying climate change,” dealing with it is “going to require big institutional change.”
