We Advocate for Safer Technology
Physicians for Safe Technology supports efforts for safer development and use of digital and wireless technologies. We also support adequate safety testing prior to the introduction of new technologies and robust monitoring after placement of cell towers. PST strongly advocates for local control of cell tower placement with careful consideration of non-thermal human health and environmental health effects. We are especially concerned about protecting children from the physical and mental health effects as well as privacy breaches from digital and wireless technologies.
