Global Health at Risk from Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields

Chronic EMF-Related Diseases Are a Potential Risk for Everyone, and a Precautionary Approach Is Urgently Needed

IEMFA is the International Electromagnetic Fields Alliance, supported by an independent and growing global body of empirically-based scientific experts on living processes, with a multilevel, multidisciplinary health focus. The Experts cover a wide range of Biological, -Physics, -Medical and Epidemiologic disciplines, ranging from electron and molecular level to the level of living cells, tissues and the functioning of different organ systems. They cooperate worldwide to supply a coherent, multilevel insight into the chaotic multitude of observed biological disruptions when exposed to non-ionizing radiation, addressing important long-term degradation threats for public health. IEMFA collaborates with leading life-science institutions and non-governmental organizations worldwide.
Ongoing developments in biomedical sciences increase worldwide consensus amongst leading life scientists that the multitude of cellular changes induced by non-ionizing electromagnetic fields, may over several years bioaccumulate into a range of serious health problems, due to prolonged exposure at levels significantly below the current exposure guidelines. These fast emerging long-term risks form a wide and major threat to public health.
The principal aim of IEMFA is to disseminate coherent, health-oriented information and advice on the rapidly growing body of knowledge on deeper biological disruptions observed in living tissues after exposure to relatively low environmental levels of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields produced by technical equipment. It includes the assessment of related long-term health risks when chronically exposed and scientific publication of biology-based exposure guidelines.

By shifting the perspective from predominantly physics-theoretical expectations of radiation risks, into empirically-based biological knowledge, and by supplying integrative bio-accumulative information, the Alliance promotes a new approach for risk assessment of prolonged EMFs that is consistent with the biological complexity of living beings. In this way the Alliance aims to contribute to long-term public-health merits, by preventing a range of plausible chronic EMF diseases. IEMFA’s supplementary, long-term-oriented information and advice is primarily addressed to national and international governments and health authorities.

IEMFA primarily focuses on the widely-used frequencies of electromagnetic radiation, of which there is still limited understanding with regards to the long-term health effects. It includes low frequencies related to the use of sources of electricity, and radio frequencies related to the use of various wireless applications. The majority of information provided by IEMFA is published in the form of scientific reviews, advisory reports and proceedings of scientific meetings. The outcomes of these reviews have resulted in the publication of Empirically-based Exposure Guidelines preventing Chronic Health Risks for society. These will be further promoted by IEMFA. In line with this, IEMFA urges global governments, authorities and citizens to take substantial precautionary measures for environment and health.
The International EMF Alliance aims to protect the health of you and your family. Since its opinion is dissenting compared to traditional institutions, there is no external funding available. IEMFA’s board members and scientific advisors spend much of their private time on this important public goal, and we would like to have more influence. If you think our strategic activities can make a difference, we ask that you tell others about us and consider a donation. Your contribution enables us in promoting an adequate system for protecting the world’s long-term health.
