The Washington Spectator magazine recently exposed the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) for its shoddy and biased report to the state legislature on the potential harm to the state’s roughly 600,000 schoolkids from wireless devices proliferating in classrooms.

Spectator reporter Daniel Forbes found an inadequate review process coupled with deletions of scientific findings linking wireless radiation exposure to cancer and other health issues. Several groups of scientists wrote to the Oregon governor and legislature calling for a retraction to the report.

Cindy Franklin, founder of Consumers for Safe Cell Phones will discuss with EHT Executive Director Theodora how she obtained several drafts of the report through Oregon public records requests. However, she was denied the first draft — a draft that had science documenting an association between exposure and harmful effects. 

Forbes reports that emails reveal that the OHA’s chief science officer, ”apparently pulled the strings to withhold that damning first draft from public records requests made by a wireless-safety advocate, Cindy Franklin, who identified herself as an advocate in her request.” 

“Allegedly withholding a public document in such circumstances is taken quite seriously here in Oregon,” Forbes wrote.

In the Spectator article, Franklin is quoted as saying, “OHA leadership has been implicated in this blatant, coordinated public health deception. How high up does this go? Governor Brown and the legislature must immediately hold investigative hearings.”

Environmental Health Trust devoted significant resources to comment on the report and produced a 100-plus page response to the OHA Wireless Health Report.

Scarato points out that this report will be presented as “proof of safety” in other states and likely even other countries searching for scientific reviews on the issue of the health effects of wireless in schools. The ramifications go well beyond Oregon and could impact school children across the United States.

“A retraction by the Health Department is critical,” she said.
