Environmental Health Trust


EHT relies on a large number of experts around the U.S. in sharing high-level research and documentation on the harmful impacts of radiation from  cell phones and cell towers.  

Hugh S. Taylor, M.D.

Chair of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences, Yale School of Medicine and Yale-New Haven Hospital; president of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine. His research on prenatal exposure to cell phone radiation has been published in numerous scientific reports. 

Linda S. Birnbaum, Ph.D.

Scientist Emeritus and Former Director, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and National Toxicology Program of the National Institutes of Health.  She is currently a scholar in residence at the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University.

Devra Davis, Ph.D., MPH

Founding director of the Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology of the U.S. National Research Council, National Academy of Sciences and has worked on numerous environmental exposures, from chemicals to lead to air pollution. Among the NAS reports she directed were those advising that tobacco smoke be removed from airplanes and the environments of young children. Davis was also an appointee of President Bill Clinton to the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board, former senior advisor to the assistant secretary for health in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and a member of the team of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change scientists who were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize with former Vice President Al Gore in 2007.

As co-founder and President of Environmental Health Trust Davis has worked on the issue of wireless radiation for over a decade and has repeatedly met with and briefed FCC senior staff. Davis testified in the 2009 Senate hearings on cell phone radiation (CSPAN link), has published numerous studies on the health effects of non -ionizing electromagnetic radiation and organized numerous national and international scientific conferences on the issue. EHT’s scientific publications were submitted to the FCC record and EHT submitted thousands of pages of evidence to the FCC in the years leading up to the court’s decision. 

Davis has authored three popular books. She was designated a National Book Award Finalist for When Smoke Ran Like Water: Tales of Environmental Deception and the Battle Against Pollution (2002, Basic Books).

Her book, Disconnect:The Truth About Cell Phone Radiation, What the Industry Is Doing to Hide It, and How to Protect Your Family, selected by TIME magazine as a top pick in 2010, received the Silver Medal from Nautilus Books for courageous investigation for the paperback edition in 2013, which was identified by Project Censored as “the news that didn’t make the news,” and is the subject of multimedia international policy-making attention–including special editions recently released in India and Australia.

Her book The Secret History of the War on Cancer was a top pick by Newsweek that influenced national cancer policy by the Cancer Association of South Africa, and is being used at major schools of public health, including Harvard, Emory, and Tulane University.

Frank Clegg, CEO of Canadians for Safe Technology and Former President of Microsoft Canada

Former president of Microsoft Canada and founder of Canadians for Safe Technology. C4ST

is a national, not-for-profit, volunteer-based coalition of parents, citizens, and experts. C4ST’s mission is to educate and inform Canadians and policymakers about the dangers of the exposures to unsafe levels of radiation from technology; and to work with all levels of government to create healthier communities for children and families. 

Jerome Paulson, M.D. 

Emeritus Professor in the Department of Environmental & Occupational Health at The George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services, and an Emeritus Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. Paulson created the American Academy of Pediatrics Program on Climate Change and Health. He is a consultant to the Medical Society Consortium on Climate and Health and is a founding member of Virginia Clinicians for Climate Action and is helping clinicians in other states create Clinicians for Climate Action groups. He is a past chair the executive committee of the Council on Environmental Health of the AAP and past Medical Director for the Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Units – East. He served on the Children’s Health Protection Advisory Committee for the US EPA. Dr. Paulson co-created, and for a number of years lead, the Mid-Atlantic Center for Children’s Health & the Environment.

Ronald L. Melnick, Ph.D.

Senior Toxicologist and Director of Special Programs in the Environmental Toxicology Program at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), National Institutes of Health, and is now retired. He lead the design of the National Toxicology Program Carcinogenesis Studies of Cell Phone Radiofrequency Radiation in Rodents.


Anthony Miller M.D.

Director of the epidemiology unit of the National Cancer Institute of Canada, chair of the Department of Preventive Medicine and Biostatistics at the University of Toronto, head of the Division of Cancer Epidemiology at the German Cancer Research Centre, and consultant to the Division of Cancer Prevention of the U.S. National Cancer Institute. He was visiting senior scientist in the IARC Monographs programme as a reviewer to the scientific literature supporting designation of Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields (RF-EMF) as a Group 2B possible carcinogen in 2011. 


Paul Ben Ishai, Ph.D. 

Professor of Physics at Ariel University, Israel is currently a senior lecturer with the Department of Physics, Ariel University, Ariel, Israel, and the head of the laboratory of Terahertz Dielectric Spectroscopy. He was the director of the Hebrew University’s Center for Electromagnetic Research and Characterization, Department of Applied Physics.


He has published over 50 articles including several papers on 5G frequencies and the skin. Until 2016, he was involved with the laboratory of Professor Yuri Feldman, concentrating on dielectric research. His research interests include soft condensed matter physics, glassy dynamics, biophysics, sub-terahertz spectroscopy, and dielectric spectroscopy. He currently holds three patents in these fields. He received the PhD in applied physics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. 

Theodora Scarato

Executive Director of Environmental Health Trust  directs EHT programs and coordinates scientific programs in the United States and internationally with EHTs senior science advisors. Scarato is lead policy analyst and researcher for the EHT database on international actions — the most comprehensive collection of information on policy actions on cell phones and wireless. 

Scarato has led efforts for federal accountability. She has championed efforts for safe technology in schools and her efforts led to the Maryland Council on Children’s Environmental Health to issue recommendations to reduce children’s Wi-Fi exposure. Scarato co-authored a landmark paper on why and how to reduce radiofrequency wireless in buildings and has presented at the National Institutes of Health, the New Hampshire State 5G Commission, the San Francisco Teachers Union, the University of California San Francisco, and the American Federation of Teachers.
