Today’s episode is my conversation with Theodora Scarato, who is the Executive Director of the Environmental Health Trust. And she is awesome. You’re in for a treat. She is really on the front lines of trying to educate us all, including the FCC, about the potential hazards of 5G.
Let me tell you about Theodora: She is not only the executive director, she’s also the lead policy analyst and researcher for the EHT database on international actions– the most comprehensive collection of information on policy actions on cell phones and wireless.
She published a landmark paper on why and how to reduce radiofrequency wireless in buildings —and she presents to important organizations like the National Institutes of Health, the University of California and the American Federation of Teachers.
She has been with Environmental Health trust for 10 years and before that she co-founded several organizations both locally and nationally that address environmental health and safety concerns.
Before that, she was a practicing clinical psychotherapist, working with children. Her research interests include not only the effects from radiation exposures but also the social emotional effects of technology overuse.
If you’ve read any of our articles about EMF’s on Tech Wellness, you may remember the Environmental Health Trust. It’s a non profit founded in 2007 by Dr. Devra Davis as platform to advocate and educate us about environmental issues like climate change and EMF’s.
About the time they were starting, I was making my first video, showing people that radiation coming from their phones was just the same at the energy coming from their microwaves.
The Environmental Health trust was one of the few voices out there with fact-based information. And they have remained so to this day—which is even more important, because so many people are talking about emf these days, and so many of them don’t know what they’re talking about! EMF is a complicated topic. And there’s a lot of information out there that just is not true.
That’s one of the reasons I’m excited to have the chance to share the organization with you today.
We’ll tell you how you can learn more, help out and get involved. That is what Theodora did… she came onboard as a volunteer and moved up to executive director.
You’re about to hear how the Environmental Health Trust has filed a legal action against the FCC, They’re saying that the Commission didn’t protect consumers when they rubber stamped the extension of testing standards for cell phones. That standard, that didn’t make much sense when they adopted in 1996—and make even less sense today.
