A collection of research on Electromagnetic Frequencies (EMFs)

  • The BioInitiative 2012 Report has been prepared by 29 authors from ten countries, ten holding medical degrees (MDs), 21 PhDs, and three MsC, MA or MPHs. Among the authors are three former presidents of the Bioelectromagnetics Society, and five full members of BEMS. The Bioinitiative Report is an amazing resource for anyone looking to learn more about the harmful effects of EMFs.  There’s updated research summaries at this link
  • International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety (ICEMS) is a non-profit organization that promotes research to protect public health from electromagnetic fields and develops the scientific basis and strategies for assessment, prevention, management and communication of risk, based on the precautionary principle.
  • EMF Facts has a bunch of Paper showing the concerning impacts of EMF.
  • Dr. Magda Havas, PhD. has a website dedicated to the study of electromagnetic fields (EMF) and electromagnetic radiation (EMR).

Radio Frequencies

  • High Exposure to Radio Frequency Radiation Associated With Cancer in Male Rats.  The National Toxicology Program (NTP) concluded there is clear evidence that male rats exposed to high levels of radio frequency radiation (RFR) like that used in 2G and 3G cell phones developed cancerous heart tumors, according to final reports released today. There was also some evidence of tumors in the brain and adrenal gland of exposed male rats. For female rats, and male and female mice, the evidence was equivocal as to whether cancers observed were associated with exposure to RFR.


  • Artificial Light at Night and Cancer: Global Study.  Artificial light at night (ALAN) has been linked to an increased risk of cancers in body sites like breast and colorectum. The outcome measure was age-standardized rates (ASR) of cancers used Protected Light Area Pollution Indicator (PALI) and Protected Area Human Influence (PAHI).  Study found that PALI and PAHI were positively associated with ASR of all forms of cancer, and also the four most common types (cancer, lung, breast, and colorectal). The conclusion of this study said, “Artificial light at night is significantly correlated for all forms of cancer as well as lung, breast, colorectal, and prostate cancers individually. Immediate measures should be taken to limit artificial light at night in the main cities around the world and also inside houses.”

Conclusions:  “These findings indicate that room light exerts a profound suppressive effect on melatonin levels and shortens the body’s internal representation of night duration. Hence, chronically exposing oneself to electrical lighting in the late evening disrupts melatonin signaling and could therefore potentially impact sleep, thermoregulation, blood pressure, and glucose homeostasis.
