Everybody is exposed to electromagnetic radiation. There is an urgent need for information and protection – the health of the general public is at risk. The Swedish Radiation Protection Foundation works to protect all living matter against harmful EMF exposure.
We are all exposed
Human exposure to Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) from wireless technologies and other sources has increased exponentially in the past two decades. Concurrently, various health problems known to be linked to the exposure, have seen a rapid increase in the Swedish population.
The increasing electromagnetic radiation we are exposed to in our everyday life increases the risk for various symptoms, behavioural disorders and diseases, some of them very serious, like cancer and neurological disorders. This is not yet generally known, although the risks are well described in the scientific literature and in numerous documented case studies. The Swedish Radiation Protection Foundation shares the conclusions of a growing number of international organisations, medical doctors and scientists who are very concerned about the situation, especially as the exposure is continuously increasing. The Foundation’s activities are in line with the recommendations from the European Council’s in May 2011 adopted resolution no 1815 about the potential dangers of electromagnetic fields and their effect on the environment. The European Council recommended the member states, among others, to
– take all reasonable measures to reduce exposure to electromagnetic fields, especially to radio frequencies from mobile phones, and particularly the exposure to children and young people
– put in place information and awareness-raising campaigns on the risks of potentially harmful long-term biological effects on the environment and on human health, especially targeting children, teenagers and young people of reproductive age
Public health at risk
There are strong reasons to believe that the consequences for public health, and especially for the younger generation, will be serious if the population and society don´t start to take urgent measures to gain information about the risks and take immediate steps to reduce exposure.
The Swedish Radiation Protection Foundation provides knowledge about EMF health risks based on scientific findings and the experiences described by injured fellow-citizens. It also gives advice about how to decrease exposure and protect oneself from health hazards, always keeping the public health and environmental perspective as a main priority.
We need to take action now. It is urgent to prevent a public health catastrophy. You can support our work by making a donation or spreading the word. Make sure your family and friends are up-to-date on the latest news from the Swedish Radiation Protection Foundation.
