EMF Safety Network’s mission is to educate and empower people by providing science and solutions to reduce EMFs to improve lives, achieve public policy change, and obtain environmental justice. EMF pollution includes electric and magnetic fields, wireless radiation and dirty electricity which is radiation on electric lines.

Peer-reviewed published studies link electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) and wireless radiation (RF) to health problems including:  fatigue, headaches, sleep problems, anxiety, ringing in the ears, heart problems, learning and memory disorders, increased cancer risk, and more. For a comprehensive review of the science go to https://bioinitiative.org and or read science abstracts here: shortcut-to-science.  For personal accounts of harm see this EMF Health Effects 2019 Survey.

If you think you might be having health problems from EMF’s please see this excellent resource written by Dr. Scott Eberle. http://emfsafetynetwork.org/safety-precautions/ehs-doctor/

Studies show radiation harms nature and children are especially vulnerable. This handout includes links to science on RF effects on nature and this study recommends precaution for children.

Medical doctors advice precaution. In California and other states, prudent avoidance of EMFs is recommended public policy. Prudent avoidance means taking steps to reduce exposure. See California Department of Public Health cell phone advisory, New Hampshire 5G Final Report. 

Steps you can take to reduce EMF’s include using: corded (wireless off) internet; corded phones; and analog utility meters (remove smart meters).  And reduce cell phone use. Keep cell phones away from your body and away from children. Best to use cell phones for emergencies only. Set limits on computer and screen time, especially for children. Consider having your house tested for EMF’s. More ideas here: safety tips See also What are EMFs? brochure.

For an excellent intro and overview, including the science, watch the following video with Joel Moskowitz PhD “Health Effects of Cellphone & Cell Tower Radiation: Implications for 5G” held on Nov. 3, 2021. He speaks for about 45 minutes, followed by a Q and A.

Many people have experienced harm from EMF exposure.  People have been hurt by (for example) cell and cordless phones, cell towers, wi-fi, power lines, indoor wiring, and smart meters. See this EMF Health Effects 2019 Survey.

Sandi MaurerThis website was launched in 2009 by Sandi Maurer. In 2006 she was struggling with chronic fatigue, recurring sore throats, body pain and other health problems, which led to a pre-cancerous condition. She was 46. Her acupuncturist said she had pulses like an old woman!  Her medical doctor told her she needed to improve her immune system but couldn’t tell her how.  She  tried a lot of things: acupuncture, herbs, Tibetan herbs, chiropractic, cranial sacral, which felt good but did not make a lasting difference. Then she hired EMF electrician, Michael Neuert who measured her house and found they had high electric and magnetic fields from indoor wiring, florescent lights, dimmers and appliances. He recommended that they figure out the least electricity needed and turn the rest off at the breaker box. The sleeping area was most important place to have the electricity off.  When they did this Sandi immediately “felt” better. Within a week she experienced a huge increase in energy and within a month or two many of her health problems disappeared.  She was shocked to learn of the power of electricity to harm.  She researched about EMF’s for an entire year before speaking out as an activist at a public City Council meeting.

In 2007 the City of Sebastopol approved free city wide wi-fi.  Sandi organized a small group (Why Wi-fi campaign) to protest and educate the city council and they eventually rescinded the contract to install the wi-fi.

In 2009, in response to the forced installation of utility smart meters, the group became the EMF Safety Network (EMFSN) and this blog was IMG_4817launched.  We started the campaign against Smart Meters in Northern California, which has become a global effort to stop smart meters and restore analog meters.  On this website you will find compilations of customer complaints on health, fires, and other smart meter problems and suggestions on what you can do to help stop the forced installations.

Our legal efforts at the California Public Utilities Commission helped win the right to retain analog meters for millions of Californians. We also helped support many other groups in other states. This effort helped grow awareness about EMF harm.

TowerZap by Brian NarelleGo to Safety Tips to learn how to reduce EMF’s and protect yourself, and your family. We recommend the use of corded phones and wired computers.  If you struggle with chronic health problems, learning to reduce EMF’s may restore your health and vitality.  People around the world are finding out they are electrically sensitive.

Governments, health agencies, scientists and advocacy groups worldwide advise precaution. Read the BioInitiative Report, see science abstracts, and learn from our Doctors Corner.  The EMF and RF World Concerns Summary is a compilation of links to illustrate the weight of world recognition of the growing problem of electrical pollution.

“I have no doubt in my mind that at the present time, the greatest polluting element in the earth’s environment is the proliferation of electromagnetic fields. I consider that to be far greater on a global scale than warming, and the increase in chemical elements in the environment.’’ – Dr. Robert O. Becker Author of Cross Currents and The Body Electric

We’ve arranged a society on science and technology in which nobody understands anything about science and technology, and this combustible mixture of ignorance and power sooner or later is going to blow up in our faces. I mean, who is running the science and technology in a democracy if the people don’t know anything about it.- Carl Sagan

  1. Of course, here we all are, dependent on our electronic communication devices (myself included) not mindful enough of the cumulative effect of all the RF radiation all around us. I suspect that is the cause of my worsening tinnitus.
    We want good wireless service but we dont want the towers near us. We need and use them now but I will fight 5G technology. Maybe we stand a chance if we are willing to take on the corrupt FCC.

  2. A wide range of environmental influences causes biological effects. ‘Biological effect’ does not equal ‘health hazard’. Special research is needed to identify and measure health hazards. At low frequencies, external electric and magnetic fields induce small circulating currents within the body. In virtually all ordinary environments, the levels of induced currents inside the body are too small to produce obvious effects.

  3. How does one stop them from installing a 5G cell in front your dedicated Historic residence popular residential neighborhood. This going in very close to the building, only found out when survey team came out and I was joking with them about taking our limited street parking. Prior to this was no disclosure of what they were doing. I’m furious and frighten of the potential health concerns. I have lived in this historic building for 10 yrs! m sure the neighborhood is unaware of whats going on along with potential health risks as this is a densely populated neighborhood. What can be done to stop this!!!

  4. I commend the EMF Safety Network and the people in the greater SF Bay area and Marin County for their dogged persistence in challenging Smart Meters, a grave menace to public health, our liberties, freedoms, and privacy. If this precedent is allowed to exist, we shall lose far more. Even with just this outrageous device, the following can (and likely will) happen:
    1. the health of Americans will be destroyed. I have all but one symptom named in a report of health effects from RF radiation – and that includes a new, disturbing, virulent form of skin cancer on my face (smart meter located by head of my bed).
    2. hackers, government, or private companies could choose who to sicken with radiation exposure – no one would be safe. They would have a device on our homes and buildings that can be dialed up to sicken or even kill the occupants. This is not science fiction, this is a reality, now.
    3. privacy destroyed – our indoor air space permeated with radiation emissions, where once, we had the choice to have a healthy home
    4. privacy destroyed – data gathered on our activities and how often we are there, this can be hacked into or misused by government or private companies
    5. security issues
    6. interference with other devices, including medical devices and technologies in the home. This can be deadly. A man in my Smart Meter-blanketed-neighborhood with pacemaker and defribrillator dropped dead suddenly, unexpectedly. His device stopped working, I was told.
    7. Power given over to government, corporations (often owned by international interests), terrorists/hackers who can now harm us in our homes from a great distance.

    This is outrageous and must not be tolerated. I hope the National Tea Party and any others who are seeing the extreme dangers of Smart Meters and the entire plan will step up and raise the issue up to the highest levels in all our states and in Congress.
