United States epidemiologist and toxicologist Dr Devra Davis will deliver her first Australian public lecture on the biological impacts of mobile phones and wireless devices on 18 November 2015 at UNSW.
Dr Davis’ presentation will outline:
- the evolution of the smartphone;
- new global studies on the health consequences of mobile phone and wireless radiation;
- recent international policy developments, including new legislation in California, requiring mobile phone retailers to fully disclose the radiation levels of mobile phones and ways in which to reduce exposure; and
- the gap between science and policy and how to protect yourself and your family.
Dr Davis will also discuss how Australia is falling behind the rest of the world in addressing the significant issues associated with safe mobile phone use.
Dr Davis is an internationally recognised expert on electromagnetic radiation from mobile phones and other wireless transmitting devices. She is the Founding Director of the Center for Environmental Oncology at The University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute.
