Tucker Hiatt, visiting scholar in the Stanford chemistry department, discusses the possible connection between cell phone usage and cancer. Citing Robert N. Proctor, author of the Golden Holocaust: Origins of the Cigarette Catastrophe and the Case for Abolition, the tobacco industry has made it harder to confirm the threat of “lesser hazards”.
What are the health effects of electromagnetic (EM) radiation? After exploring the fundamental (and fun) physics of electric and magnetic fields, we will see just what EM waves are. Then we’ll consider how this radiation can, and might, and cannot disrupt the mechanisms of the body. Finally, we’ll examine the evidence — both anecdotal and scientific — for the health effects of EM radiation from power lines, smart meters, and, in particular, cell phones.
