Current guidelines of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and similar organizations are outdated and do not adequately protect us from the hazards of radiofrequency radiation (RF). FCC exposure guidelines only protect against thermal damage despite overwhelming evidence that so-called non-thermal effects also occur. These non-thermal effects are simply unregulated.
To better understand why the FCC does not seem to care about protecting the public from all known RF hazards, it is recommended to read the document published last year, “Captured Agency: How the Federal Communications Commission Is Dominated by the Industries It Presumably Regulates.” 
Since the FCC will not adequately protect the public, it is basically up to informed consumers to do the best they can to protect themselves.
Ronald M. Powell, Ph.D., has just published some common sense guidance on how to reduce RF exposure and thereby improve your chances of good health , as indicated below:
“Instead of increasing our exposure to cellular radiation, and to the radiation from other digital wireless devices, we can decrease our exposure and improve our chances for good health. Desirable steps in this direction include the following:
- Reduce or stop the use of cell phones. Reserve them for emergencies or other essential uses.
- Replace cordless telephones with corded telephones.
- Establish wired (Ethernet) interconnections between routers and the wireless devices that the routers support. Then turn off the wireless capabilities, such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, of them all.
- ‘Opt out’ of the wireless smart meter on your residence, if your state or local electric power company permits. Many states, but not all, have an opt-out provision.
- Alert family members about the health risks posed by wireless devices, particularly for vulnerable groups such as pregnant mothers, unborn children, young and teenage children, adult males of reproductive age, seniors, the disabled, and anyone with a chronic health condition. Everyone is vulnerable, but these groups are more so.”
