Wi-Fi requires better regulations

To the Editor,

It’s sad that our public officials are so unaware of basic biology, health and environmental issues.

The 2012 Bioinitiative Report was just released at www.bioinitiative.org.  Twenty-five international scientists and doctors reported on the most recent science on electromagnetic radiation, in particular, radio frequency microwaves emitted by wireless devices, and their summary says we’re in deep doo-doo (my words, not theirs) already, and will be in deeper if we continue adding layers of radiation to our already over-saturated environment.

North America has the absolute worst regulations worldwide, and our elected officials, who are supposed to protect public health, don’t.
