Keynote Address: The Biological and Health Effects of Electromagnetic Fields -- the Science and the Solutions
"Is public health in jeopardy from non-stop proliferation of electromagnetic fields? What scientific evidence is there for association between electromagnetic fields and electrosensitivity, cancers, heart irregularity, fertility impairment, brain effects, cognitive function, behavioral and emotional problems, immune system effects, neurological effects, fetal effects and more? How are governments responding to the human and environmental toll, and what steps can you and your clients take to mitigate? Who is likely to be more sensitive to electromagnetic fields? What are the treatment approaches that leading physicians are using to lessen EHS? Learn how to decipher industry spin from independent science, when you see it, and how to become engaged as an advocate for radiation free homes, schools and workplaces in your communities."
