In this long-running case (we reported on it in January 2021) CHD and the EHT argued that the FCC had acted perversely and illegally in not updating their safety limits for EMF radiation (cell towers, wi-fi etc) to take account of more recently available evidence that such radiation can cause adverse health effects at limits far below the set guidelines.

"The court ruled that the FCC failed to consider the non-cancer evidence regarding adverse health effects of wireless technology when it decided that its 1996 radio frequency emission guidelines protect the public’s health"

“…the FCC completely failed to acknowledge, let alone respond to, comments concerning the impact of RF radiation on the environment…The record contains substantive evidence of potential environmental harms

"CHD’s case was consolidated with another similar case that was filed by the Environmental Health Trust. The organizations filed joint briefs in the case"

We await the FCC's response in due course . . .
