W.I.R.E.S. is Women’s Initiative to Reduce ElectroSmog — progressive women and men who volunteer in response to repeated urgent pleas from hundreds of researchers and healthcare professionals to reduce “wireless” and other electromagnetic pollutants. Here is one Appeal first released in 2015 that now includes more than 230 scientists.
INTERNATIONAL SCIENTISTS PETITION U.N. TO PROTECT HUMANS & WILDLIFE FROM ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS & WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY (Press Release 1st paragraph, then links to short video/script/full text)
New York, NY, May 11, 2015 — An Appeal has been submitted today by 190 scientists from 39 nations to the United Nations, requesting the World Health Organization (WHO) adopt more protective exposure guidelines for non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF) in the face of increasing exposures from many sources. Called the International EMF Scientist Appeal, the petition calls on the United Nations and its organizations to encourage precautionary measures and conduct an environmental assessment; for the WHO to educate the public about health risks, particularly to children and pregnant women; and for the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) to assess the potential impact of EMF exposure on all living organisms.
