Is non-ionising electromagnetic radiation harming our health?


During the last four decades, there has been an exponential increase in ambient radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RFR) that continues to rise at an unprecedented rate. In addition, the increases occupy an unnatural portion of the frequency spectrum and now reach intensities of up to 1018 (quintillion) times higher than natural, background levels of RFR.

RFR is emitted by mobile phones, base stations, Wi-fi enabled routers and computers, cordless land line phones, security systems, fitness watches, baby monitors, many other modern devices including wearable tech, internally emitting devices and products advertised for use close to foetuses or newborn babies.  

5G will include higher frequencies transmitted by directional phased array antennas which have not been pre-market safety tested under realistic conditions in combination with existing emissions. Additionally, the planned Internet of Things (IoT) will lead to higher cumulative exposures.  

Existing emissions have already been shown to damage biological systems within lifelike exposure parameters and international independent experts agree that this evolution is not safe for deployment. Damages include: increased cancer risk, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damage, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans and the addition of higher frequencies. Overall increased exposures are therefore predicted to cause further health damage.  

In this webinar you will learn about:  

  • some of the issues regarding safe exposure levels 

  • biological mechanisms of interaction 

  • diagnoses linked with exposures in peer-reviewed published scientific literature  

  • vulnerable groups including children and those with electromagnetic hypersensitivity  

  • responsible ways forward for a healthier future. 


Dr. Erica Mallery-Blythe, founder of PHIRE, is a UK trained medical doctor with a decade of experience within hospital medicine of various disciplines within multiple countries. Emergency Trauma Medicine is her area of expertise in hospital, and in training for this specialty she has a broad base of medical experience including surgery, anaesthesiology, obstetrics, paediatrics and intensive care (both neonatal and adult).  

In 2008, she began researching biological effects of non-ionising radiation . This research included copious literature appraisal, conducting her own research via medical histories, medical examinations and provocation testing of those with Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS). She has provided expert witness statements regarding EHS, and been invited to discuss the public health concerns of radiation exposure at the highest political level both here in the UK, and in Europe. She has provided support for schools and parents who require advice to better protect the health of children and information and advice for doctors and their patients. 

She formally transitioned from clinical medicine to full time research in 2015, and continues advise where appropriate and necessary. Given that the task of providing such support for ever growing numbers is escalating, she founded PHIRE (Physicians’ Health Initiative for Radiation and Environment) to facilitate education on a larger scale. The group already has international affiliations with medical doctors’ groups abroad and is are currently constructing best practice guidelines for non-ionising radiation (NIR) health for multiple settings
