Steve Weller, Vice President of SSMA Inc., has for the last 3 years been researching the science that looks at microwave radiation exposure from modern wireless devices such as cell phones, WiFi and smart meters. The main aim was to see if studies had established associations between chronic exposures to microwave radio frequencies with biological effects in animals and humans that could be considered potentially harmful.
Steve’s interest in investigating the science on microwave radiofrequencies (RF) developed after he determined that a neighbour’s two smart meters was seriously impacting his health and wanted to understand how and why this could happen. He was further motivated by the fact that thousands of other people around the world were reporting similar adverse health experiences once a smart meter had been installed on or near their home.
Last month Steve was sponsored by ARPANSA, as SSMA’s EMERG representative, to attend the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) workshop held in Wollongong on 11th November 2014. The main aim of the workshop was for leading scientists representing the World Health Organization (WHO), ICNIRP, ACEBR and ARPANSA to discuss the latest evidence of health consequences from exposure to radiofrequency (RF) fields, and their relationship to ICNIRP’s current updating of the RF guidelines.

To his disbelief and concern, scientists appeared to be downplaying the risks, misrepresenting and distorting the science, to give the impression that there was nothing to be concerned about. An analysis of WHO Fact Sheet 193 showed the same misrepresentations.
Clearly disillusioned with the lack of honesty and integrity being displayed by these international organisations, which are entrusted with advising governments around the world to protect the health and well being of billions of people, Steve decided to write an open letter to the aforementioned organisations and their scientific representatives. A number of Australian politicians were also copied.
