RadLimits — Initiative Petitions to Limit Non-Ionizing Radiation

Why limit non-ionizing radiation? Because many experts say there is evidence of harm from exposure, including a number of former U.S. NIEHS leaders, caution is wise.

Because technology emits non-ionizing radiation, several countries (e.g. Cyprus, Israel, France) have banned WiFi partly or fully in sensitive areas like schools, and/or limited being close to technology (due to fields near electricity). Youth are our future, and we must cherish and take care of them.

In addition, wireless connectivity has a far greater energy footprint than wired connectivity or pen and paper, so limiting wireless radiation reduces our energy consumption.

Because of the evidence, we are preparing for a 2023 signature drive to put a question on the Massachusetts ballot for reasonable limits and regulation of non-ionizing radiation.

Please Help!

Donate

We need donations as collecting signatures requires funds! We ask for a donation of 6 dollars or more, lobbying assistance, and that you get 9 others who to donate and join as well. To succeed, we do need numbers and support. Note that donors and their donations must be reported to the state by law.

Summary in Short:

The goal is to reduce and regulate exposures from wireless and other types of non-ionizing radiation from technology. The following parts can legally be included on a petition initiative:

  1. require tech design that makes turning off wireless easy;
  2. require tech design that limits all kinds of incidental non-ionizing radiation;
  3. make information on wireless facilities (e.g. cell towers) readily accessible to the public;
  4. require the Massachusetts telecommunications department adopt technologies that best reduce non-ionizing radiation;
  5. make it much easier to sue and penalize corporations for failing to limit non-ionizing radiation.
  6. establish a commission of first responders and others to examine how best to protect them, while maintaining needed services;
  7. limit non-ionizing radiation to as safe and minimal as possible for wireless service;
  8. take steps to hard-wire and limit exposures in certain public anchor institutions.

Proposals:

Note: We have 4 different versions of a proposed law, with slight variations. For a link to the full law, click the title’s number below. The sections on disease investigation were considered outside the scope of the proposed law, and prevented certification as an initiative petition.

22-06 Initiative Petition for a Law Relative to Non-Ionizing Radiation Limits for Technology and Wireless Facilities (Version H)

22-07 Initiative Petition for a Law Relative to Non-Ionizing Radiation Limits for Technology and Wireless Facilities (Version P)

22-08 Initiative Petition for a Law Relative to Non-Ionizing Radiation Limits for Technology and Wireless Facilities (Version R)
22-09 Initiative Petition for a Law Relative to Non-Ionizing Radiation Limits 

 

Note: Several recommendations on devices were from those recommended by the New Hampshire commission that investigated the impacts of wireless on health.
