Contrary to popular opinion, we know a great deal about how non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF) affect non-human species because animal and plant models have been used in research going back at least to the 1930's. Such research may have been conducted with humans in mind but can also be extrapolated to non-human species protection.

Since the introduction of radar in the 1940s, there have been thousands of scientific studies on the effects of microwave radiation (EMF) on human beings. The Oceania Radiofrequency Scientific Advisory Association (ORSAA) reviewed EMF research conducted over the past twenty years and reported that 68% of published studies showed harm to living organisms-- either human, animal, avian, insect or plant.

Here are some of the most significant peer-reviewed studies in recent years, observing a rigorous application of the scientific method:

Environmental Health Trust -- Science to Protect Health and Environment

The most accessible and useful website on this subject. The Trust is a scientific think tank with a mission to safeguard human health and the environment by empowering people with state-of-the-art information.

They work with world-class experts to conduct cutting-edge research that can help improve safety standards for sources of pollution, including devices that emit microwave radiation. They also publish articles in peer-reviewed journals about controllable environmental health hazards.

Professor Tom Butler: On the Clear Evidence of the Risks to Children from Non-Ionising Frequency Radiation: The Case of Digital Technologies in the Home, Classroom and Society

A thorough study of the issue, emphasising the lack of protection for children: "Children’s health and well-being is under significant threat from everyday digital technologies."

British Society for Ecological Medicine: 2020 NIR Consensus Statement

The 2022 update of the 2020 Consensus Statement of UK and International Medical and Scientific Experts on the Health Effects of Radiofrequency Radiation (RFR). A convincing consensus with urgent action points from recent, independent, expert global forum on the acute and chronic health effects resulting from Radiofrequency Radiation (RFR).

Dr Neil Cherry. Lincoln University NZ:

New Zealand's unique contribution to international research, from the late Neil Cherry. Invited by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry for the Environment to assess the 1998 safety guidelines for cell tower sites promoted by the international NGO  ICNIRP.*  Cherry's peer-reviewed research criticised these guidelines -- still adhered to today in NZ -- showing they were highly selective and ignored all published studies of chromosome damage.

* International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection

Criticism of the health assessment in the ICNIRP guidelines for radiofrequency and microwave radiation (100 kHz - 300 GHz) (2002)

BioInitiative Report: A Rationale for a Biologically-based Exposure Standards

The BioInitiative Report

In the ten years since the BioInitiative 2012 Report was posted, hundreds of new peer-reviewed research papers have been published. A clear majority of studies report biological effects as opposed to ’no effect’. The trend continues to show that exposure to low-intensity ELF-EMF/Static Fields and RFR at levels allowable under current federal public safety limits pose health risks. This body of literature strongly supports new, biologically based public exposure standards that are protective against exposure levels identified in this Report to cause effects at levels thousands of times lower than current FCC limits. See Henry Lai's Research Summaries - BioInitiative Report 2012 for all results including electrohypersensitivity (EHS) and comet assay study results.
