Electromagnetic Pollution Causing Health Hazards. How do you campaign to resolve issues?

Information about health is fundamental to saving lives. Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) emanate from radar, broadcast transmission towers, microwave ovens, cellular phones, wireless local area networks (WLANs), power lines (50/60 Hz) and many other sources. Information about environmental influences of Electromagnetic fields are causing anxiety among general populations. All populations, where ever they are, now exposed to varying degrees of EMF. The exposure to EMF will continue to increase as technology advances. During the past 20 years the general public has become increasingly concerned about adverse health effects of exposure to electric and magnetic fields. They are unable to get any satisfying answer about the EM fields causing health hazards. The potential health effects of exposure to static and time varying electric and magnetic fields need unambiguous scientific clarification. Even a small health consequence from EMF exposure could have a major public health impact. To protect public health and to answer the public perception of risk, the World Health Organization (WHO) established “International EMF Project” in 1996 (Ref. The EMF Project encourages focused research to evaluate health issues raised because of exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) in the frequency range from 0 to 300 GHz. However, the research results are often contradictory, creating confusion, breaking confidence and building more public concern. So the question remains How do you campaign to resolve issues ? “.
