Citizens for Safe Technology
Empowering the public to protect children
and nature from unsafe wireless technologies.
Science and Research
There is mounting evidence worldwide, contained in reputable peer reviewed and published studies and journals, showing adverse effects from low-frequency, radiofrequency fields. These effects apply not just to humans, but to wildlife and the natural environment as well.
Governmental health, environment and wildlife protection agencies are reluctant to recognize new studies as relevant, claiming that more research is needed over an extended period of time before any protective measures need to be taken.
There is already substantial and compelling research in this field. In view of the unprecedented speed with which wireless technologies are being deployed and adopted, many highly respected scientists have repeatedly presented credible, insightful, brave and forward-looking evidence with minimal funding or support. Based on results and careful observation, they are saying that strong evidence warrants caution.
Just as harm from wireless technologies has not been proven to the satisfaction of our present governments, neither have they ever been proven to be safe. Due to the fact that there are no unaffected populations left, there can be no "control" for traditional experimentation.
Until such time as wireless technologies and infrastructure are proven to be safe, our old paradigm is sorely lacking.

Possible Impacts of Communication Towers on Wildlife Including Birds and Bees
Indian Government studying impact of phone towers on birds, bees
"New Delhi, Nov 28 (IBNS): The Indian Environment Ministry is examining a report by an expert committee that has studied the possible impacts of cell phone towers on wildlife including birds and bees.
In a written reply to a question posed by lawmakers, Natarajan said that the Ministry had formed the expert committee on Aug 30 under the chairmanship of Dr Asad Rahmani, Director, Bombay Natural History Society.
"Media reports have said that the environment and forests' ministry study has blamed electromagnetic radiation (EMR) from communication towers for the declining numbers of sparrows and bees.
"The study titled 'A possible impact of communication tower on wildlife birds and bees' said the radiation decreases egg production in the bees.
"It also added that in the case of honey bees, the group observed that high radiation resulted in an unusual phenomenon known as 'colony collapse disorder' which is characterized by sudden disappearance of a hive's inhabitants, leaving only queens, eggs and a few immature workers behind.
"The vanished bees were never found. Also, the navigational skills of the bees were affected by high-tension lines . . ."
"India is one of the fastest growing mobile telephony industries in the world. It is estimated that by 2013, 1 billion plus people will be having cell phone connection in India. To support this growth of cell phone subscriber in the country, there has also been a tremendous growth of infrastructure in the form of mobile phone towers. Today, in absence of any policy on infrastructure development and location of cell phone towers, large numbers of mobile phone towers are being installed in a haphazard manner across urban and rural areas including other sparsely populated areas in India . . ."

Citizens For Safe Technology
"Wi-Fi: Is It Safe?"
Citizens for Safe Technology is a not-for-profit educational society made up of parents, grandparents, teachers, business professionals, scientists, politicians and lawyers concerned about the exponential increase in public exposure to harmful wireless technologies.
We believe a profound urgency exists to protect the unsuspecting public, especially children, youth and pregnant mothers from unsafe wireless technologies.
