Citizens for Safe Technology
Empowering the public to protect children
and nature from unsafe wireless technologies.
Cell and Portable Phones
Cellular and portable phones, though suddenly and seemingly indispensable in our society, are a direct product of the wireless industry's successful attempt to sell us speed, convenience and entertainment all in one seductive package. In the long term, biologically safe alternatives to wireless cell and portable DECT phones will become necessary, as already they are causing negative effects that impact all living systems.

listen to twelve samples of wireless signals from increasingly common sources
Each electromagnetic source has its own characteristic sound, which is demodulated by broadband-meters to allow evaluation of the sound's source. The sounds are the interference on a particular radio frequency, not the sounds of wireless. They are an audio representation of the patterns of the transmission, with every "zap" representing a "hit' of a micro pulse of radiation.

Cell Phone Use May Increase Their Risk of ADHD
Excerpts in an April 2, 2013 Press Release from Joel M. Moskowitz, Ph.D., School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley:
A new study finds that children who use cell phones who are exposed to lead are at greater risk of developing Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder than lead-exposed children who do not use cell phones much or at all.
"... preventing the use of mobile phones in children may be one measure to keep children from developing ADHD symptoms ..."
The full text of the study is available at: PLOS ONE: Mobile Phone Use, Blood Lead Levels, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Symptoms in Children: A Longitudinal Study
Fox News VIDEO - Concerns over early cell phone use and brain cancer
Concerns are growing over cell phone use after a new study showed a link between early cell phone use and brain cancer. . . .
Wake-up Call - Australia
Part 1: Brain Tumour Wake-up Call
Neurosurgeon Dr. Charlie Teo is interviewed about mobile phone use and his assertion that cell phones have a direct influence on the development of brain tumours.
Disconnect is a documentary that exposes the truth behind the negative health effects of cell phones.
Globally, 5 billion people own mobile devices but few know the potential harm they are causing. Through extensive research and interviews with the world's leading doctors, scientists, politicians, activists, and victims; Disconnect traces the rise of a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted public health. Severe adverse health effects have been associated with long-term microwave radiation exposure from cell phones. Many doctors and scientists believe brain tumors, infertility, and breast cancer are correlated with cumulative cell phone use."
First 6 minutes:
In the following clip, Stuart Cobb shows all of the different cell phones he's owned and why he believes the long-term radiation from them might have caused his brain tumor. I drove from my hometown of Stratford, Connecticut up to Portland, Maine twice within a week to film interviews with Stuart, the Cobb family, and then-current Mayor of Portland. This clip is one of my favorite sequences from the film. I hope if you find it meaningful you'll share it with others.
Cell Phone radiation and harmful effects: Just how much more proof do you need? (2012)
"Dr. Andrew Goldsworthy has written this article about the harmful effects of electro magnetic radiation.
"It explains in some detail, but in lay-person's terms, the mechanisms underlying the various harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation from power lines and mobile telecommunication devices.
"The Industry can no longer claim that there is no known mechanism by which low level radiation can cause biological damage.
"It also goes on to say how the Industry, apparently deliberately, ignored warnings about the dangers involved in the specific pulse frequencies that they subsequently used in digital telecommunications. . . .

"Overall, the evidence suggests that the radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic energy (EME) emissions of mobile phone handsets are not harmful to the user. However, the technology is very new and it's impossible to be completely sure there isn't some risk. This is particularly true for children where there is little research evidence. . . .

ALSO SECOND NEWSCAST VIDEO Police call for power to seize distracted drivers' phones
"VICTORIA - The Chief of Police says text or talk while driving and lose your phone.
"At least that's what he's hoping for.
"The BC Association of Chiefs of Police will ask the province to allow them to seize cell phones from repeat offenders.
"Chief Jamie Graham says the message is not getting across and the fines are too low to make that difference.
"In addition to encouraging the ability to seize and hold phones for 24 hours, the association will request that fines are increased to deter first time offenders from doing it again."

"Exposure to cell phones prenatally-and, to a lesser degree, postnatally-was associated with behavioral difficulties such as emotional and hyperactivity problems around the age of school entry. These associations may be noncausal and may be due to unmeasured confounding. If real, they would be of public health concern given the widespread use of this technology."

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.
