Dr. Thomas FriedenDirector, Centers for Disease Control and PreventionMailstop D-14Atlanta, GA 30333-9946July 19, 2012Dear Dr. Frieden,I am writing to you with a compelling request that the CDC intervene in an unfolding emergencyinvolving EMF and RF radiation exposures that are impacting the public health right now. This isa
crisis
levels as hundreds of 
wireless technologies
are rapidly being developed and deployed,unchecked, even being forced on all Americans, wherever they live and work.
 
Unfortunately, thefederal government is actively helping to expand the emergency, unwittingly. I am certain that, asDirector of the Centers for Disease Control, you can help correct this situation.I ask that you take simple actions that will address and prevent serious, costly, debilitating health problems for tens of millions of Americans. I am convinced that you, as director of the CDC, arethe only one in the position to intervene in a meaningful and appropriate way, to stop a publichealth disaster that is happening right now, sadly, due to unfortunate federal errors. I ask for your immediate help on a most urgent basis and that you speak to President Obama directly.
THE PROBLEM:
Two decade-old, scientifically obsolete government policy on non-ionizing radiation whichignores current science and warnings of experts, combined with catering to industry vs. protectingthe public, is causing us to be surrounded by dangerous toxic, pulsed RF radiation exposures thatare harmful to Americans. The FCC has allowed this to occur - it is not a health agency and believe me, that is having terrible consequences, combined with misinformed White Houseenthusiasm for wireless technologies.At this time, the federal government is the major source of funding and the White House themajor source of encouragement for such egregious mistakes as
universal wireless (WIFI 
 ) (in ou schools, hospitals, medical facilities, grocery stores, shopping malls, libraries, hotels), a thick  forest of cell towers including now on tops of many churches and next to schools, and 
especially forced smart (utility) meters
, a prime example. Thanks to White House encouragement, no ruralarea is safe. There is now nowhere to even escape to. Then, of course, we see that nearly everyAmerican is using cell phones thoughout the day, including pregnant women and children,unchecked, with
a federal plan in place to make this the only way to communicate
, to do away withall landlines (and thus, safety). We need your emergency help.Just this week, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine issued a set of "Recommendations Regarding Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Exposure" as guidance for  physicians to consider patients' total EMF and RF exposure in their diagnosis and treatment, aswell as recognizing that this may be an underlying cause of disease processes. Further, AAEMrecommends that those with many named medical conditions - including pregnancy - avoid these

EMF/RF exposures, and especially, that smart meters be removed from their homes and thesurrounding area, as an accommodation (see attached).People are experiencing severe tinnitus, vision problems including loss of vision, severe ear pain,cardiac, circulatory, and blood pressure problems, pains in chest and head, headaches (moderateto severe and daily), vertigo, dermal problems (rashes and cancers), memory and other cognitive problems, joint and tissue pain, bleeding and painful sinuses, breathing problems, depression,anxiety, gastrointestinal problems, seizures, unconsciousness, and an increase in inflammation, just to name a few. These symptoms are consistent with exposure to RF radiation per thousandsof independent studies (many are double-blind, peer-reviewed) and even military technicalinformation on use of non-ionizing radiation in electromagnetic weaponry. The experience for many is that of being tortured. People are beside themselves and have nowhere to go to escape, asentire communities are being blanketed with this deadly, pulsed radiation that they are reacting to,sometimes within seconds of the installations. I personally know of three professors, a doctor, andone dentist who have been living tragic, suddenly very ill lives, homeless at times - two areunable to work - because they can't live in their homes now due to smart meter installations, in particular. I know of many thousands more like them. Some can no longer work, due to a WIFIor smart meter-laden environment at the workplace, as well.Citizens are struggling desperately to maintain their health and protect their families and children.This costly federal mistake is making a mockery of all public health efforts, including yours at theCDC, and will shortly destroy our public healthcare system and the public health if it is notstopped. This is already starting to happen as people go to emergency rooms and physicians at ahigher rate in areas where smart meters have been installed.I attach a letter "Smart Meters: Correcting the Gross Misinformation" clarifying the dangers of smart meters, recently signed and published by 40 international scientists and experts, includingmany Americans, to spell out the problems, and show you just how serious this error is. I attachother warnings and documents written by authoritative bodies and scientists, including theAmerican Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM). I have many more expert warningsand position statements on our website www.electrosmogprevention.org and thousands of scientific studies on EMF/RF on our project site: www.smartmeterdangers.org. Please, heed thesewarnings and take immediate, substantial action.
CDC ACTIONS REQUESTED:
Your immediate attention and intervention is needed, especially speaking to President Obama,who obviously is not getting good advisement thus far, on this topic. Also, changing the CDC'sweb information on non-ionizing radiation would help a great deal - the new material may beobtained from current WHO information, to start with, as well as that available from authoritative bodies of independent physicians and scientists, internationally and nationally, such as has beenattached herein.The CDC can help
today
by:
1.
Asking the Obama administration to stand down on funding smart meters and awireless electrical grid (smart grid), as well as halting encouragement for alltechnologies that use wireless,
including encouraging the extreme exposures from the proliferation of enhanced cell towers and extreme amounts of cell phone use by thegeneral population.
2.
Personally discussing these problems with President Obama on an emergency basisand offering immediate solutions to protect the population
from the errors made thus

far. Our organization has a immediate plan for undoing the mistakes of the wireless smartmeters that would not interfere with the running of the electric grid (see attachment).
3.
Formally recognizing what the World Health Organization announced on 5/31/11,that RF radiation is a potential carcinogen,
which was added to WHO's 2B carcinogenlist. Following that announcement, the Parliament of Europe (PACE) issued an advisoryto all its government members,
that RF radiation exposures should be reduced, as aprecautionary measure, for citizens.
 
4.
Issue such an advisement here in the USA,
immediately.
5.
Reviewing and recognizing the American Academy of Environmental Medicine(AAEM)'s Position Statements and Recommendations on avoidance of EMF
(electromagnetic fields), which includes RF radiation commentary. (attached)
6.
Reading the letter "Smart Meters: Correcting the Gross Misinformation" attached,
inviting Dr. David Carpenter to meet with you and even present at the CDC, on anemergency basis, about these issues,
and extrapolating and disseminating informationthat CDC needs to know.
7.
Meeting or speaking with additional independent scientists,
physicians, and expertswho will confirm and explain the situation, on an emergency basis. One such eminentscientist is Dr. Henry Lai, of Washington State University.
8.Ask for a White House directive to suspend the portions of the Telecom Act of 1996which forbid evaluation of environmental health and safety when siting wirelesscommunications devices.
9.
Discussing immediate, practical solutions with our organization.
We have a number of these.These actions would cost nothing, and would not mean that CDC agrees 100%, but it would be
amuch needed, emergency, overnight starting point that could help turn around this disaster,
which we truly desperately need. The information gained may then be referred to for guidancewhen FCC reviews its guidelines for non-ionizing radiation, which it is now preparing to do, for the first time in nearly 20 years. There is a fear that they may actually loosen the guidelines toallow more, to please industry, without proper guidance from CDC. Even continuation of thecurrent mistakes is a recipe for destruction of the public health and thus, the nation. We simplymust reverse this mistaken course.
BACKGROUND:
 Non-ionizing radiation is clearly no longer thought to be harmless by independent scientists or environmental physicians. Nor was it thought to be so even two decades ago, but in a politicalmove planned to please the telecom industry, US EPA lost control of this area, just as seriousquestions and requests for funding to study the emerging dangers were occurring.In fact, in the past two decades, independent scientists worldwide show very strong evidenceregarding the biological and health effects of non-ionizing RF microwave radiation is rapidlymounting. Guidelines at the FCC are hopelessly obsolete. FCC tells us that "from time-to-time" itreceives guidance from health agencies of the United States, like the CDC. But that has notoccurred recently. In Europe, WHO is recognizing the dangers, as is the Parliament of theEuropean Union, which issued a warning to all its member governments last June, to reduce RFradiation exposures for their citizens, based on the WHO findings.
