Conference Paper
Full-text available
Professor Yuri G. Grigoriev (PhD, DMedSci), was one of ORSAA’s independent advisors. He had been a vocal critic of the ICNIRP approach in the setting of exposure limits for RF-EMF guidelines. Grigoriev was a giant in the science of Radiobiology in Russia, and the breadth and depth of his understanding of the interactions between biology and physics...

This article discusses the need to raise a medical discussion on the health risks of wireless technology, particularly about new 5G that is lacking in the Australia - New Zealand region at present. It presents some evidence for the concerns raised in the global scientific community.
Article
This article addresses the currently lacking medical discussion on the safety of the new fifth generation wireless (5G) and the need to start one with input from medical scientists and clinicians given the scientific evidence of biological/health effects some of which is highlighted.
Article

This paper addresses the scientific evidence of biological/health impacts of microwave range radiofrequency radiation and the lack of safety testing for 5G wireless technology.

The letter to the editor [Wood, 2019] touches on some important points, and Andrew Wood should be commended for highlighting problems that we are witnessing in interpreting electromagnetic field (EMF)‐ related science. Wood notes that half a century of scientific research into the safety of EMFs (from static to 300 GHz) has not resulted in any subs...
Article
A significant amount of electromagnetic field/electromagnetic radiation (EMF/EMR) research is available that examines biological and disease associated endpoints. The quantity, variety and changing parameters in the available research can be challenging when undertaking a literature review, meta-analysis, preparing a study design, building referenc...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
ARPANSA’s Technical Report Series No. 164 (TRS-164) was written by a panel of three external academics and three ARPANSA support staff. The panel’s main task was to assess the available peer-reviewed scientific literature on radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMR) in order to determine whether the current RPS3 thermally-based standard (mo...

Exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields from WiFi in Australian schools. Radiat. Prot. Dosim. 1-8 (2017). Comment on a very poor survey.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The current regulation of the communications industry raises suspicion of the setting of Human Exposure limits. The question of conflict of interest can give bias in the setting of the radiation protection reference levels. The Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) Spectrum in the range from 3 kilohertz (kHz) to 300 gigahertz (GHz) is used for communicat...
Article
The radon and radon daughter concentration-in-air from natural background are assessed along with the micrometeorology and synoptic weather systems in an arid region of Australia. The radon daughter contribution to population dose is biased towards the frequency of nocturnal inversions. Classical atmospheric models are not applicable during stable...
Article
An integrating Rn daughter dosimeter using conventional Dy-doped CaSO4 thermoluminescent (TL) material has been developed for use as a personal monitor. The dosimeter was found to have a linear response over the range 0.5 WL-h to 25 WL-h and to be insensitive to the state of equilibrium of the Rn daughters. The use of the dosimeter to monitor both...
Article
Designers of geotecture in Australia are entering a new phase in which energy-conserving design strategies are being applied in the development of living environments that rely, in part, for their thermal energy efficiency upon a reduction in the number of interior air-exchange cycles. However, questions must be asked concerning the potential effec...
Article
Radiation parameters associated with the open pit mining of a small (10,000 tonnes), but high grade (2%) uranium deposit at Nabarlek, N.T., have been investigated in detail. External radiation levels, radon emanation rates and radon daughter levels were measured systematically during the development of the mine, and are correlated with ore grade, p...
