Numerous studies show neurological effects, even neurological damage. Exposure to radiofrequency radiation may be linked to various neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and multiple sclerosis.
Reports going back 40 years, such as the literature review authored by Christopher Dodge of the Naval Observatory, discuss a link between exposure to radiofrequency radiation and a wide variety of neurological, cardiac, and endocrine disorders, including cardiovascular changes and diabetes. Furthermore, they found that most people developed initial symptoms of overexposure -- radiofrequency sickness -- within three to five years of becoming regularly exposed (e.g. headaches, sleep disturbance, fatigue, cardiac irregularities).
In short, there is ample evidence that radiation from wireless devices can have widespread negative biological effects.
On Sept. 1, India dropped its maximum transmission limits to one-tenth of its previous limits, already lower than U.S. permissible limits, and placed a moratorium on installation of antennas within one kilometer of each other. India continues work on a more final rule. Switzerland, France, Germany, Russia, Israel and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe are all warning against unnecessary exposure to wireless signals and recommend preferential use of wired technology. The Israeli Minister of Health is calling for a ban on WiFi in schools. France has already done so. Switzerland provides a free fiber optic connection to schools provided that they do not use wireless technology within the school. Most of these countries already have more restrictive safety limits than the United States.
Why have we not acted? Do we not care for our health and our children's health above all else?
The 2012 BioInitiative makes it clear that it is time for safety limits for exposure to radiation from wireless devices to be modernized and based on protecting the entire population (including pregnant women, children, and the elderly) from biological harm. A 2012 bill, HR 6358, national legislation which would have done just that, languished and died in Congress last session, in spite of support from the Academy of Pediatrics. It needs to be reintroduced. See electricalpollution.com for more details.
