How industry and government skew facts about wireless dangers (6:21 minutes)

In this short clip, Environmental Health Trust Executive Director Theodora Scarato shows me how to access the Telecom Influence section of her website You will find in the Key Issues menu: - Research showing the vast majority of industry-funded studies conclude exposure to microwave radiation from cellphones or other wireless devices does not present health risks. - A Motorola memo about ''wargaming'' (attacking the reputation of its critics) - Manuals downplaying these risks in order to calm public concerns about cell phone safety. - Misleading brochures funded by industry - “Captured Agency: How the Federal Communications Commission is Dominated by the Industries it Presumably Regulates”, a book by Norm Alster of the Harvard Edmund J. Safra Center for Ethics (2015) - Alster is an investigative journalist who describes how the FCC is controlled by the industry it is supposed to be regulating- like the wolf watching the henhouse. At the FCC, former wireless company lawyers and lobbyists lead the agency as commissioners. - Under Product Protection Firms, you'll find a Tesla Commercial minimizing wireless health risks and government propaganda promoting 5G, notably to influence children about how friendly cell towers and antennas are!
