Electromagnetic Radiation - Concerns and Informed Choices



Our Newsletters  |  Scientific Evidence  |  Reducing EMR  |  Measuring EMR  |  Networking and Support



Newsletter March-April 2018

This free newsletter is published by EMR Aware, a citizens' group based in Northern NSW Australia. It contains information on the health, environmental, and social impacts of modern electro-technologies. This is offered in the pubic interest to encourage a fair and balanced discussion of the topics at hand. Particular attention is paid to material that may not be made widely available by industry and their Government regulators.

We invite readers to consider the scientific evidence and trending opinion throughout this, and our prior, newsletters. There seems little doubt a tobacco-style cover-up of the adverse effects of EMR is underway by those reliant upon its profitability or surveillance potential. You can help redress this situation by forwarding a link to this web page to as many interested persons, organisations, and social media networks as possible.

Over time, web content may disappear or move. If you encounter a broken link, try a search using the article's title. Alternatively, you may access similar information via the hosting website's home page. Anyone wishing to be notified when new editions of our newsletter become available is invited to send an email with the word "subscribe" in the subject line.
