    Dear ONE colleagues,

    At Environment magazine, we recently published an important article, "Applying the Precautionary Principle to Wireless Technology: Policy Dilemmas and Systemic Risks", by leading researchers in physics, engineering, and medicine.

    It argues, "Today, we are with RFR [radiofrequency radiation] from wireless devices where we were with asbestos and tobacco in the 1970s. Sufficient scientific evidence has accumulated to demon­strate the risk of adverse health effects to humans from exposure to RFR at permit­ted levels of exposure. Children and fetuses are especially at risk, as are insect species in the environment. It is time to act now to reduce exposure, rather than insisting on more proof of human or environmental harm."

    Sounds to me like something worthy of organization researchers' attention!

    All the best
