Dialogue with the Doctors About Cell Phones, Wireless and Your Health:
A Scientific Update with Practical Recommendations
On July 31, 2017, the Environmental Health Trust hosted an expert symposium with renowned medical experts to present a scientific update on the health risks posed by cell phones and wireless, an overview of the World Health Organization International Agency for the Research on Cancer carcinogenicity classification of radiofrequency radiation and related international policy updates.
This interactive event expanded upon the Environmental Health Trust’s successful Expert Forum on Wireless and Health, organized in coordination with the Israel Institute for Advanced Study and the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences at the Hebrew University in January 2017.
Devra Davis, PhD, MPH Wireless Radiation Biological Effects and Children’s Vulnerability
Dr. Davis outlines the biological effects of wireless radiation on the brain, heart and sperm, noting the importance of experimental studies and decreased exposure, particularly for children.

Anthony Miller, MD
Current Research Evidence Supports Criteria for the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer To Classify Radiofrequency Radiation As A Human Carcinogen
Dr. Anthony Miller explains the peer reviewed research evidence that has accumulated since the 2011 classification and concluded, “There is sufficient evidence that Radiofrequency radiation is carcinogenic to humans (IARC Category 1).”

Dr. Iris Udasin’s presentation by Dr. Moe Mellion,
Synergistic Effects Between EMF and Known Toxins: Experimental and Case Studies of World Trade Center First Responders
Dr. Iris Udasin’s presentation was given by Dr. Moe Mellion, due to a family emergency. Synergistic effects between known toxins and EMFs were described in this lecture including case studies of 9/11 survivors who developed glioblastomas following their exposures.
Iris Udasin, MD, Professor and Medical Director of Employee Health at Rutgers University Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute. Dr. Udasin directs studies of the 9/11 survivors from the World Trade Center disasters and holds a multi-year NIH grant that has linked WTC exposure and cancer.

Marc Arazi MD
PhoneGate: French Government Testing Shows Cell Phones Exceed Radiation Limits When Tested In Body Contact Positions
Dr. Marc Arazi, a French physician , described how the French government testing of over 300 phones showed the vast majority of cell phones exceed radiation limits when tested in body contact positions- meaning with no separation distance. In fact, 9 out of 10 phones exceeded European regulatory values in 2015. More information on the French Tests can be found at this link. To see the ANFR tests please click here. This scandal has received worldwide attention and been been dubbed “Phonegate.”
PDF of Presentation Note: the PDF includes a slide that shows the numbers when converted to equivalent US testing methods. As the slide shows, values were exceeded by 7 times.
