Reminder: In 1976 classified memo, U.S. govt said 1-15 microW/cm2 a potential health hazard and unacceptable: FCC exposure limits are 1000 microW/cm2

Reposting this vital information about the U.S. government classified admission of potentially hazardous exposure at .1 -1% of current FCC exposure limits.
——————————————————————————–

Wikileaks released a 1976 memo (below) to the U.S. Secretary of State regarding microwave radiation levels measured inside the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. It is titled: MOSCOW SIGNAL – APPROACH TO GROMYKO. It was classified “SECRET” until 2006. It was written by Ambassador Walter Stoessel to Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and marked NODIS — No Distribution (other than to persons indicated) . More information on the memo is on the Wikileaks website. Stoessel died of leukemia at age 66 in 1986. He was stationed at the embassy on three different occasions. [1]

Main points:

Frequency detected: above 1 GHz 
Daily duration of exposure: 18 hours per day
Levels detected in the embassy: 1-15 microW per cm2
Levels in comparison to typical background levels in U.S. cities: several orders of magntitude above = 1000s to 100s of thousands times greater, or more, than 1976 U.S. background levels

U.S. medical experts’ “considered opinion” was that prolonged exposure to 1-15 microwatts  per cm2 constitute a potential health hazard.

U.S. officials said, “No level of radiation in the U.S. Embassy which is significantly above the typical background level in residential areas of large industrial cities is acceptable to us.”

Why are FCC exposure limits 1000 microW per cm2 — 100s of times greater than U.S. medical experts’ “considered opinion” of a potential health hazard in 1976 and tens of millions of times greater than what U.S. officials deemed acceptable?

There were U.S. conferences in the 1950s and 1960s on the biological effects of microwave radiation,[2] and the Canadian National Research Council paper of 1973 warned about increasing public exposure to microwave radiation through commercial uses.

Then, commercial and military uses ramped up, the U.S. EPA’s EMF lab was defunded and shut down, a draft federal report on RF was gutted, and the state of California’s EMF lab was shut down. Tom Wheeler (CTIA), Reed Hundt (FCC), and Al Gore (Congress) effectively stopped public. medical, and scientific opposition through the 1996 Telecom Act prohibiting state and local governments from regulating RF from cell towers.

And reports have found —
Cell towers often exceed FCC limits.
Wireless devices (cell phones, iPads, etc.) exceed FCC limits as commonly used.
Wi-Fi’d classrooms can exceed FCC limits when students are using computers.

Excerpts from the 1976 memo:

–THE LEVELS OF RADIATION IN THE EMBASSY BUILDING MEASURED OVER TIME BY U.S. TECHNICIANS, AND THOSE MEASURED JOINTLY WITH SOVIET TECHNICIANS, ARE SEVERAL ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE ABOVE THE TYPICAL BACKGROUND LEVEL IN U.S. CITIES, AND ALSO ABOVE THE BACKGROUND LEVEL MEASURED IN U.S. RESIDENCES IN MOSCOW WHICH ARE AWAY FROM THE CHANCERY BUILDING.

–OUR MEDICAL EXPERTS ARE OF THE CONSIDERED OPINION THAT PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO MICROWAVE RADIATION AT THE LEVELS MEASURED IN THE U.S. EMBASSYCONSTITUTE A POTENTIAL HEALTH HAZARD.

–NO LEVEL OF RADIATION IN THE U.S. EMBASSY WHICH IS SIGNIFICANTLY ABOVE THE TYPICAL BACKGROUND LEVEL IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS OF LARGE INDUSTRIAL CITIES IS ACCEPTABLE TO US.

PRINCIPAL CONCLUSIONS OF U.S. EXPERTS

MEASUREMENTS OF RADIATION LEVELS TAKEN BY US SPECIALISTS IN U.S. EMBASSY MOSCOW OVER PERIOD OF SEVERAL MONTHS INDICATE THAT EMBASSY IS RECEIVING TWO RADIATION BEAMS OF MICROWAVE ENERGY IN THE FREQUENCY RANGE ABOVE ONE GIGAHERZ. ONE COMES FROM A POINT TO THE EAST OF THE CHANCERY AND THE OTHER FROM A POINT TO THE SOUTH.

–THESE EMANATIONS ARE PRESENT, EITHER ALTERNATELY OR OCCASIONALLY SIMULTANEOUSLY, FOR PERIODS APPROXIMATING 18 HOURS PER DAY.

–THESE BEAMS HAVE RESULTED IN RADIATION DENSITIES WITHIN CHANCERY OFFICES AND SOME APARTMENTS OF PERSONNEL RANGING FROM 1 TO 15 MICROWATTS PER SQUARE CENTIMETER.

–JOINT MEASUREMENTS CONDUCTED WITH SOVIET EXPERTS ON JANUAYR 28,

WHEN ONLY ONE OF THE PREVIOUSLY DETECTED SOURCES WAS EMITTING IN THE LOWER ENERGY RANGE OBSERVED PREVIOUSLY, WERE CONSISTENT WITH PREVIOUS U.S. MEASUREMENTS. IN PARTICULAR THEY CLEARLY REVEALED THE DIRECTIONALITY OF THE BEAM FROM THE EAST.

–THE LEVELS OF RADIATION IN THE EMBASSY BUILDING MEASURED OVER TIME BY U.S. TECHNICIANS, AND THOSE MEASURED JOINTLY WITH SOVIET TECHNICIANS, ARE SEVERAL ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE ABOVE THE TYPICAL BACKGROUND LEVEL IN U.S. CITIES, AND ALSO ABOVE THE BACKGROUND LEVEL MEASURED IN U.S. RESIDENCES IN MOSCOW WHICH ARE AWAY FROM THE CHANCERY BUILDING.

OUR MEDICAL EXPERTS ARE OF THE CONSIDERED OPINION THAT PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO MICROWAVE RADIATION AT THE LEVELS MEASURED IN THE U.S. EMBASSYCONSTITUTE A POTENTIAL HEALTH HAZARD.

NO LEVEL OF RADIATION IN THE U.S. EMBASSY WHICH IS SIGNIFICANTLY ABOVE THE TYPICAL BACKGROUND LEVEL IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS OF LARGE INDUSTRIAL CITIES IS ACCEPTABLE TO US.
