EMF Lessons From The Past: Reported Effects In 1972

In 1972 the Naval Medical Research Institute issued a research report titled “Bibliography Of Reported Biological Phenomena (‘Effects’) And Clinical Manifestations Attributed To Microwave And Radio-Frequency Radiation”. This report is a second printing with revisions, corrections and additions from an earlier print published in 1971. It is a bibliography of over 2000 studies published up to June 1971 of the biological effects of radio frequencies and microwave radiation, with a special attention on the effects on humans of non-ionizing radiation at these frequencies. The report was compiled by Zorach R. Glaser. In the first chapter he reports the biological effects of this radiation on humans. Now you can refute that there have been no studies done before 1970, and you can refute that there is no effect. Studies have been done, a lot of them. There is an effect.

The complete collection of documents still exists. You can read more about it on Dr. Magda Havas’ website: https://magdahavas.com/introduction-to-from-zorys-archive/
