“Comparison of RF EMF Exposure Levels in Different Everyday Microenvironments in an International Context,” Environment International, May 2018.

“Exposure levels tended to increase with increasing urbanity. In most microenvironments downlink from mobile phone base stations is the most relevant contributor.” One exception: Australia where broadcast radiation was #1.

“Extensive Frequency Selective Measurements of RF in Outdoor Environments Performed with a Novel Mobile Monitoring System,” Bioelectromagnetics, April 2014.

“The median power density was 0.0016 μW/cm² in rural areas, 0.027 μW/cm² in urban areas, and 0.24 μW/cm² in city areas. In urban and city areas, base stations for mobile phones were clearly the dominating sources of exposure.” From the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority.

EPRI, the research arm of the electric utility industry, has just published what might be a very useful report. Unfortunately, most of us will never get to see it.

The report is an evaluation of consumer-grade RF exposure meters —the type of instrument you might use to measure radiation levels from a cell tower or a smart meter. In a short abstract, which is publicly available, EPRI states, "Consumers need to recognize that each [RF...
