“Dan and Catherine Kleiber filed an Amicus Curiae Brief in support of The Environmental Health Trust and Children’s Health Defense in their lawsuit against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for violating The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and The Administrative Procedures Act (APA) when they elected to retain their outdated thermally-based guidelines for exposure to radiation emitted by wireless technology.
The Kleiber family does not use wireless technology, but has been injured by involuntary exposure to biologically-active levels of ambient radiofrequency/microwave (RF/MW) radiation occurring as a direct result of the FCC promoting the use of wireless technology without first establishing or asking the The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish biologically-based population- and environmentally-protective safety standards for the RF/MW radiation exposure.
Numerous studies which show harm under commonly occurring exposure conditions are cited in the Kleiber Amicus Curiae Brief. “Effects include: endocrine disruption, cancer, cardiac arrhythmia, and numerous other health impacts.” Contrary to industry claims, there are well-supported mechanisms by which radiation from wireless technology can cause serious health problems. These include oxidative damage, endocrine disruption, inflammation, inappropriate voltage-gated ion channel activation, and direct metabolic effects.
The Kleiber Amicus Curiae Brief presents evidence that the FCC’s promotion of wireless technology combined with inadequate and outdated guidelines for wireless radiation exposure have been causing a public health crisis.”
