“We recommend the Secretary of Education provide nationwide guidance on best practices to reduce non-ionizing electromagnetic exposures in schools and colleges.”

The letter is signed by Devra Davis, PhD MPH, Lennart Hardell, MD PhD, Anthony B. Miller, MD, David O. Carpenter, MD, Theodora Scarato, Tom Butler, PhD MSc, Claudio Fernández Rodríguez, Alvaro Augusto de Salles, PhD, Paul Héroux, PhD
