This free newsletter is published by EMR Aware, a citizens’ group based in Northern NSW Australia. It contains information on the health, environmental, and social impacts of modern electro-technologies. This is offered in the pubic interest to encourage a fair and balanced discussion of the topics at hand. Particular attention is paid to material that may not be made widely available by industry and their Government regulators.
We invite readers to consider the scientific evidence and trending opinion throughout this, and our prior, newsletters. There seems little doubt a tobacco-style cover-up of the adverse effects of EMR is underway by those reliant upon its profitability or surveillance potential. You can help reddress this situation by forwarding a link to this web page to as many interested persons, organisations, and social media networks as possible.
