The FCC sets the "safety" standards for radio frequency radiation aka wireless that cell phones, cordless phones, wi-fi, smart meters, cell towers, baby monitors, and other common devices emit.
These standards are unsafe because they only address whether or not you'll be cooked. They don't protect your brain, or children's brains, and they don't protect your overall health.
The FCC is going to update these "safety" standards soon. Meanwhile President Obama just nominated Thomas Wheeler, a wireless industry leader, to head the FCC! With Wheeler in charge of the FCC, there's no chance for safe oversight.
Tell US Senators to reject the nomination of Wheeler to head the FCC. He's the wrong man for the job!
• Authors of the BioInitiative Report, science and public policy experts signed a letter to US Senators urging them to reject Wheeler stating, “Mr. Wheeler should not be in charge of the nation’s safety standards and deployment for a technology he promotes without regard to public health and safety..." http://emfsafetynetwork.org/?p=9964
• The World Health Organization classifies wireless as a possible carcinogen, same as DDT and lead! http://emfsafetynetwork.org/?p=4386
