Advocacy

We Advocate for Safer Technology

Physicians for Safe Technology supports efforts to advance safer development and use of digital and wireless technologies. We support safer and more cyber secure alternatives that are wired both in our streets and in our homes, businesses and schools. 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. PST also strongly urges meaningful health and environmental surveys before placing cell towers, wireless infrastructure in buildings or generally increasing wireless radiofrequency radiation in the environment. Surveys should be part of the decision making process.
