The World Health Organization (WHO) announced yesterday that cell phone radiation increases users’ risk of getting cancer. According to the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (EMF) have been classified as possibly carcinogenic to humans.
IndoorDoctor LLC, a leading New England-based environmental engineering firm specializing in indoor air pollution, can measure this harmful electromagnetic frequency (EMF) exposure from cell phones. Jeffrey Bradley, President and CEO of IndoorDoctor, likens the uncertainty of EMF exposure to how cigarettes were once viewed fifty years ago. Bradley is also concerned that the combination of radio frequency and other indoor air chemicals may trigger an allergic condition known as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS). A wide variety of physical illnesses such as headaches, migraines, insomnia, neurological illness, cancer, leukemia, tumors, muscle aches and pains, fibromyalgia, neuromuscular disease, and heart disease have also been associated with EMF.
Unlike other indoor pollution such as mold, radon, asbestos, and chemicals, there is no easy fix to EMF other than avoidance. As with any indoor air pollution concern, the most effective plan is to first have your home, car and place of work tested for EMF to understand your exposure. People who are interested in assessing their risk should contact IndoorDoctor at 800-466-1522 to schedule an EMF evaluation. Bradley or one of his environmental engineers will travel to your home for consulting and testing services based on sound engineering principals. Visit www.indoordoctor.com for complete information.
